Exploring The Relationship Between And Among Registered Nurses' Spiritual Well-Being, Spiritual Care Perspectives, And Their Provision Of Spiritual Care In Acute Care Settings, Barbara J. Kitchener 2016 Seton Hall University

Exploring The Relationship Between And Among Registered Nurses' Spiritual Well-Being, Spiritual Care Perspectives, And Their Provision Of Spiritual Care In Acute Care Settings, Barbara J. Kitchener

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Abstract

Despite acknowledgment that spiritual care is an essential aspect of holistic nursing care, nurses often feel ill-prepared for, uncomfortable with, and uncertain about providing spiritual care. Studies have indicated that nurses who have a strong sense of their own spiritual well-being and/or a positive perspective [attitude, value, belief] about spiritual care are more inclined to provide spiritual care to their patients. However there is a scarcity of such studies among acute care nurses. This descriptive correlational study aimed to explore relationships between and among acute care nurses’ spiritual well-being (SWB), spiritual care perspectives (SCP), and their provision of ...

Statistical Methods For Detecting Groups Of Patterns In Daily Step Count Activity Profiles, Elijah S. Meyer, Tan Tran, Mark Greenwood 2016 Montana State University-Bozeman

Statistical Methods For Detecting Groups Of Patterns In Daily Step Count Activity Profiles, Elijah S. Meyer, Tan Tran, Mark Greenwood

Skyline - The Big Sky Undergraduate Journal

In recent years, “step counting” has become a constant pre-occupation for some people as a way of trying to tie activity to fitness goals. This has been spurred on by inexpensive digital devices that provide a suite of information on how and how much you move during the day. Many of the consumer interfaces to these data provide summary information that often focuses on daily totals and visual displays of patterns of activity if the user dives a little deeper. This suggests that when you move throughout the day is just as much of a story as how much you ...


The Physiological Responses To Cycling Stress., Moriah Larsen 2016 Northern Arizona University

The Physiological Responses To Cycling Stress., Moriah Larsen

Skyline - The Big Sky Undergraduate Journal

Background: As the intensity of exercise increases, the risk of incidences for exertional heat illness (EHI) continues to climb. The National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) has set an official position statement; stating a “gold standard” for obtaining core body temperature is via rectal thermometry. It has been reported that other field-expedient methods of obtaining core body temperature (oral, axillary, tympanic, temporal) are invalid or unreliable sources after intense exercise in hot temperature regions. Purpose: To determine if a relationship exists between rectal temperature measurements and tympanic temperature measurements during intensive long bouts of exercise. Design: Controlled Laboratory Study. Setting: Human ...


Assessing Personality Traits Of Students Admitted To Athletic Training Programs, Allison Griffin 2016 Northern Arizona University

Assessing Personality Traits Of Students Admitted To Athletic Training Programs, Allison Griffin

Skyline - The Big Sky Undergraduate Journal

Background: Assessing personalities, using the NEO-FFI-3, of students admitted to Athletic Training Programs (ATP) has not been established. Furthermore, evaluation of potential differences in personality traits between successful and unsuccessful students has not been explored. Identifying NEO-FFI-3 traits correlated to ATP student outcomes may result in academic interventions as well as improve student success and retention. Purpose: To establish the mean NEO-FFI-3 scores of students admitted to ATPs. To assess if differences exist in NEO-FFI-3 scores between successful students (retained in ATP or passed the BOC Exam) and non-successful students (released from the ATP). Design: Survey research. Setting: Students admitted ...

Fate Of Abstracts Presented At The 2007-2009 Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association Meetings, Joel B. Durinka Md, Tyler Wenzel, Christopher Ortiz, Lynn Choi, Jorge Ortiz

Translation: The University of Toledo Journal of Medical Sciences

Background: Information presented in society meetings has not been completely vetted through a formal review process. It is not entirely clear if it is accurate or will ever be published in peer reviewed journals.

Materials and Methods: A Pubmed-Medline search was performed for all abstracts presented at the AHBPA from 2007-2009 Different variables including country of origin, study center, and academic institution were examined to determine if any could predict eventual publication.

Results: 33.4% of all abstracts presented materialized into full text manuscripts. The average time to publication was 14 months. In total, 46% of abstracts were published in ...


Mandatory Pharmacy Residencies: One Way To Reduce Medication Errors, Rami B. Ibrahim, Lilian Baghat-Ibrahim, David J. Reeves 2016 Butler University

Mandatory Pharmacy Residencies: One Way To Reduce Medication Errors, Rami B. Ibrahim, Lilian Baghat-Ibrahim, David J. Reeves

David Reeves

We read with disbelief about a newly graduated pharmacist dispensing 30 times the amount of injectable sodium bicarbonate intended, an error that led to a patient’s death.1 As clinicians, we wondered what clinical scenario might mandate the large amount of sodium bicarbonate dispensed—the answer was none. So why did the pharmacist dispense it? The answer is all too clear: With rare exceptions, institutional pharmacists nationwide are largely focused on dispensing. Postgraduate clinical training in the basic aspects of pharmacotherapy is scarce and not viewed as essential. Inadequate pharmacist training and a staffing shortage were suggested as contributing ...


Therapeutic Assignments: Structured Framework For Interaction Between Medical Students And Patients On Psychiatry Clerkships, Yael Dvir, Isheeta Zalpuri 2016 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Therapeutic Assignments: Structured Framework For Interaction Between Medical Students And Patients On Psychiatry Clerkships, Yael Dvir, Isheeta Zalpuri

Yael Dvir

Medical students enjoy high level of patient contact on psychiatric clerkships. They have felt that forming a relationship with a patient can have therapeutic effects by imparting hope, decreasing their isolation and providing individualized attention. However students have encountered difficulties forming alliance with their patients, either due to acuity of illness such as psychosis or due to character pathology, addiction etc. They need to feel comfortable dealing with more difficult situations such as extremes of emotion or breaks with reality. Interviewing skills must be continually developed. We hope that Therapeutic Assignments (TA) will: provide a medium for students to improve ...


The Use Of Visual Arts As A Window To Diagnosing Medical Pathologies, Katrina A. Bramstedt 2016 Bond University

The Use Of Visual Arts As A Window To Diagnosing Medical Pathologies, Katrina A. Bramstedt

Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine Publications

Observation is a key step preceding diagnosis, prognostication, and treatment. Careful patient observation is a skill that is learned but rarely explicitly taught. Furthermore, proper clinical observation requires more than a glance; it requires attention to detail. In medical school, the art of learning to look can be taught using the medical humanities and especially visual arts such as paintings and film. Research shows that such training improves not only observation skills but also teamwork, listening skills, and reflective and analytical thinking. Overall, the use of visual arts in medical school curricula can build visual literacy: the capacity to identify ...
