There is a lack of research concerning how student nurses' knowledge development is expressed through narratives and how they deal with challenges in patient situations in professional learning. OBJECTIVES: To clarify the usefulness of narratives in student nurses' knowledge development and the narratives implications for learning in clinical training...

BACKGROUND: Venous leg ulcers (VLUs), the most common type of leg ulcerations, have long healing times and high recurrence rates; reimbursement rules and a general shortage of nursing staff have put self-treatment into focus. The study aimed to investigate why and how patients with VLUs self-treat their ulcers. METHODS: Patients with VLUs ( N = 32) were selected by criterion sampling for a multicentric qualitative study using semi-structured interviews. The interviews were analyzed via inductive qualitative content analysis...

OBJECTIVES: To characterize the vaginal microbiome using QIIME 2™ (Quantitative Insights Into Microbial Ecology 2) in women with gynecologic cancer. SAMPLE & SETTING: 19 women with gynecologic cancer before and after radiation therapy at a comprehensive cancer center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Professional Assessment Instrument (PAI) is a clinical nursing information system used in the adult inpatient units of the A. Gemelli university hospital in Rome (Italy). The PAI allows for the systematic collection of nursing care data in order to improve the quality of care. So far, few clinical nursing information systems have been developed in the neonatal and pediatric care setting. The aim of this study is to describe the development and implementation of a clinical nursing information system (PAIped) for the neonatal and pediatric care setting...

In nursing, surveillance is generally presented as an essential element to ensure patient safety. In order to better understand how clinical surveillance is put into practice by expert nurses, a study in nursing was conducted in 2016. This article aims to present the results of this research with a clinical vignette to make concrete the links that exist between theory and practice. This will result in a better understanding of the surveillance process by expert nurses in critical care settings.

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of elderly long-term care facilities by focusing on insights provided by the operators of these facilities. METHODS: In this phenomenological study, 10 participants who operated nursing home businesses were interviewed. Of the 10 participants, seven had graduated from a nursing programme and three had studied social welfare. RESULTS: The experiences of facility operators could be organized into four themes: "Starting as a facility operator", "Dream of an ideal long-term care facility", "Struggling desperately in practice", and "Obtaining hope by providing care"...

Too few patients utilize cardiac rehabilitation (CR), despite its benefits. The Cochrane review assessing the effectiveness of interventions to increase CR utilization (enrolment, adherence, and completion) was updated. A search was performed through July 2018 of the Cochrane and MEDLINE (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online) databases, among other sources. Randomized controlled trials in adults with myocardial infarction, angina, revascularization, or heart failure were included. Interventions had to aim to increase utilization of comprehensive phase II CR...

Compliance with evidence-based shift report practices varies, and handoff processes are often inconsistent, increasing the risk for compromised patient safety. This pilot study evaluated registered nurse adherence to and self-efficacy with evidence-based shift report practices presimulation and postsimulation. Statistically significant increases in adherence to and self-efficacy with shift report practices after simulation were noted. Simulation offers nursing professional development practitioners a feasible method to enhance practice competency and standardization of care during registered nurse shift report...

BACKGROUND: Previous clinical trials have reported that extracorporeal shock wave (EPSW) can be used to treat low back pain (LBP), and have achieved satisfied effect. However, its effectiveness is still inconclusive. Thus, this systematic review will aim to assess the effectiveness and safety of EPSW for patients with LBP. METHODS: In this systematic review, the electronic databases of Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, EMBASE, PUBMED, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database, Chinese Scientific Journal Database, and Wanfang Data will be searched from inception to January 1, 2019...

The use of nursing big data sets for value-based measurement is novel. Nursing value measurement depends on the availability of essential data attributes in the electronic health record related to nursing care delivered (what happened, when, and the result seen). Key in measuring value is a standardized structure and format of these attributes for enabling uniform consistent analysis, along with data sets that are sharable and comparable across individuals and groups, time, organization, and practice focus...

We aimed to develop an expert consensus on standardizing data collections in specialist obesity management clinics in Australia. A panel of 16 experts participated in a structured consensus-driven Delphi process to reach agreement on a minimum set of baseline patient data collections for consideration in specialist obesity services. The panel included surgeons, clinicians, allied health professionals (dietician, exercise physiologist, psychologist), a bariatric nurse and obesity researchers. We produced a recommended list of core and useful data items that should comprise the baseline patient data set...

BACKGROUND: Several clinical and procedural factors determine outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), but data are scarce on the impact of post-TAVR discharge disposition on long-term outcomes. We sought to analyse whether discharge location after TAVR is associated with 1-year outcomes in women undergoing contemporary TAVR. METHODS: The Women's INternational Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (WIN-TAVI) registry is the first all-female TAVR registry to study the safety and performance of contemporary TAVR in women (n = 1019)...

Nuclear size correlates with cell size, but the mechanism by which this scaling is achieved is not known. Here we screen fission yeast gene deletion mutants to identify essential factors involved in this process. Our screen has identified 25 essential factors that alter nuclear size, and our analysis has implicated RNA processing and LINC complexes in nuclear size control. This study has revealed lower and more extreme higher nuclear size phenotypes and has identified global cellular processes and specific structural nuclear components important for nuclear size control...

BACKGROUND: People with dementia are receiving treatment in acute care hospitals at increasing rates. Most prominently, patients exhibiting behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) are perceived as significant burdens for staff members. Non-detected pain is seen as one substantial reason for behavior that is seemingly unexplainable. In order to gather information about dealing with BPSD a survey was performed. The objective of this study was to enable a more cause-oriented treatment...

This article sought to evaluate e-SUS AB's impact on procedure and consultation notification in the Outpatient Information System of the Brazilian Unified National Health System (SIA/SUS) in Brazilian municipalities. This is an ecological study with longitudinal comparisons before, during and after the e-SUS AB implementation period (June 2013 to May 2015) and, during implementation, cross-sectional comparison between municipalities in completed, intermediary and initial implementation stages. Rates were described using means and standard deviations and analyzed through negative binomial regression...
