INTRODUCTION: Parenting support is a subject of a public health policy in France, identified as a means of reducing health inequalities in early childhood. Pediatric nurses, for their leadership role in supporting children and their families, are at the heart of these actions, but their feedback appears more in grey literature, rather than in scientific literature. AIM: To describe and analyze actions of parenting support, performed by pediatric nurses, through professional literature, to give them visibility within the scientific community...

BACKGROUND: The exponential increase in the number of medications associated with clinically important prolongation of the heart rate-corrected QT interval (QTc) places older adults at increased risk of arrhythmias including life-threatening torsade de pointes (TdP) and sudden death. Risk factors, other than age older than 65 years and female sex, include multiple concurrent drugs that prolong QTc and a variety of underlying predisposing conditions. Although electronic medical records and pharmacy dispensing systems can alert clinicians to the risk of QTc-prolonging therapy, more than 95% of safety alerts are overridden, and many systems have deactivated QTc drug interaction alerts...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Nurse practitioners (NPs) are expected to fill gaps in providing primary care in the United States and need vital skills to meet the growing need for primary care providers. One necessary skill is managing "on-call" clinical questions/concerns by patients across the life span. To date, there are no published studies that address "on-call" simulations for family NP (FNP) students across the life span. METHODS: This quasi-experimental, mixed-methods design used a confidence scale and Krippendorff's method for content analysis of discussion pages to determine the effectiveness and confidence of simulated "on-call" scenarios for FNP students during each of their clinical courses...
