OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aims to synthesize the available evidence on the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on heart rate modulation, indexed by heart rate variability parameters in healthy individuals and those with clinical disorders. INTRODUCTION: There is some evidence that altered heart rate variability (HRV) parameters are associated with different clinical disorders. For example, diminished parasympathetic activity has been explored as a potential biomarker for some chronic pain conditions...

Rie Konno, Kumiyo Inoue, Tim Schultz, Rick Wiechula
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this review is to summarize current best evidence for advance care planning in older adults with dementia and their families. INTRODUCTION: Contemporary end of life care cannot be fully achieved without high quality advance care planning practice, which facilitates the expression of patient preferences for treatment if they lose the capacity to decide or communicate their wishes. However, advance care planning for people experiencing dementia can be highly complex and requires additional knowledge and skills...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this project was to improve the postoperative handover practice within the local context of an orthopedic surgical setting by implementing best practice. INTRODUCTION: Clinical handover is a communicative process where the responsibility of patient care is transferred through the exchange of patient information between the care providers. Postoperative handover is an important phase of perioperative care that presents challenges to handover personnel due to transitions in care throughout the perioperative period and the inability of surgical patients to participate in their own care...
