Quality? Safety? Stop Being Naïve., Rana K. Zaban DO, Steven Istephan, Jonathan Serman MD 2017 Annapolis Family Medicine Residency, Beaumont Wayne Hospital

Quality? Safety? Stop Being Naïve., Rana K. Zaban Do, Steven Istephan, Jonathan Serman Md

Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates

The first day of our inpatient medicine rotation, the Emergency Department (ED) admitted a patient to a general medical floor without notifying our rounding team. We used the institution’s system improvement tracking software to draw attention to communication breakdown in the interest of patient safety. This piece illustrates how there is a prominent hierarchy in medicine; it is inherent to the framework of the way in which hospitals function. A discussion ensues with our attending physician supervisor on our patient medicine service. During this discussion, we ponder whether it is possible to impact quality and safety from our position ...

Often the first place these victims are seen where they can receive help is the emergency department. Objectives: The goal of this systematic integrative literature review was to explore existing literature on domestic violence screening methods used in the emergency department and determine which methods prove most effective. Concurrently, this review examined the barriers to effective domestic violence screening and how nursing education ...


Positive Psychology In Collegiate Sport: Leveraging The Pivotal Role Of The Athletic Trainer To Promote Student-Athlete Well-Being, Jessica Turak 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Positive Psychology In Collegiate Sport: Leveraging The Pivotal Role Of The Athletic Trainer To Promote Student-Athlete Well-Being, Jessica Turak

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Research suggests that the state of collegiate student-athlete psychological health is poor, and current protocols for identification and referral are insufficient. According to the NCAA and NATA, the athletic trainer plays an essential part in this identification and referral process. Yet, many ATs report lacking confidence and readiness to address the psychological components of athletic injury. They also struggle to navigate unclear policies that obfuscate effective action. While diagnosing and treating psychological illness is outside of the ATs scope of practice, in order to improve the athletic trainer’s ameliorative capacity, positive psychology should be an integral component of their ...

Implementing An Undergraduate, Team-Based, First Aid Education Course, Valerie O'Toole-Baker, Carol A. Amann, Stephanie N. Mcelhaney, Michael Mccarthy, Jestin N. Carlson

International Journal of First Aid Education

Abstract

First aid (FA) skills, including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) are the foundation of first responder care. Best practice guidelines to educate FA trainees are lacking. The current structure of FA training programs is based on pedagogy, derived indirectly from hospital-based and Emergency Medical Services training models. Most FA training programs focus on educating the participant to function as the sole provider of care; however there may be instances when individuals providing FA find themselves suddenly engaged as functioning members of teams caring for an individual in need. Findings indicate that patients are safer and receive higher quality care when providers ...

This article discusses the creation of a first-year, interprofessional healthcare course that emphasizes CBE as well as interprofessional practice. Interprofessional Goals: The 2015 Academy Fellows believed that a collaborative course in the first-year curriculum that builds upon integral competencies ...


An Exploration Of Nurse Educators' Knowledge, Attitudes And Practice Of Horizontal Violence Measured Through Dimensions Of Oppression, Brenda Berner Petersen 2017 Seton Hall University

An Exploration Of Nurse Educators' Knowledge, Attitudes And Practice Of Horizontal Violence Measured Through Dimensions Of Oppression, Brenda Berner Petersen

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

There is a paradox in the profession of nursing. Although nursing is known as the caring profession, evidence demonstrates that nurses do not care well for their own. Literature demonstrates that the phenomenon of horizontal violence (HV) is an international problem in the nursing profession, which negatively affects the nurse workplace environment. HV is broadly described as aggressive destructive behavior and intergroup conflict that occurs between nurses. Where behaviors of HV exist, the workplace becomes a toxic environment or nurses (Woefle & McCaffrey, 2007).

This dissertation provides the results of a research study exploring nurse educator’s knowledge, attitudes and practices of HV measured through dimensions of oppression. Nurses have been widely argued to exhibit oppressed group behaviors (Roberts, 1983; Roberts, 1986; Roberts, DeMarco, & Griffin, 2009) and empirical evidence demonstrates that HV is a widespread problem in the nursing profession, with a cycle of behaviors that are embedded during nurse role socialization (Randle, 2003; Longo, 2007). This study explores the phenomenon of HV in nursing using a national sample ...

Exploring Respiratory Care Faculty And Students’ Perceptions Of Effective Clinical Instructor Characteristics, Saad Mohammed Alrabeeah

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Background: Clinical instructors play a crucial role in shaping the future of healthcare by training students on site to deliver patient-centered team based care. Respiratory care clinical instructors play an integral part in preparing respiratory care students to be effective practitioners given that almost 50% of the respiratory care curriculum is conducted in the clinical environment under the supervision of clinical instructors. Professional competence, interpersonal relationships, personality characteristics and teaching ability are all qualities that clinical instructors should possess in order to provide students with quality clinical education experiences. The purpose of this mixed method study was to (1) explore ...


Determining The Knowledge, Attitudes And Beliefs Of Healthcare Providers In Treating Non-Specific Acute And Chronic Back Pain, Stacey L. Kale 2017 Pittsburg State University

Determining The Knowledge, Attitudes And Beliefs Of Healthcare Providers In Treating Non-Specific Acute And Chronic Back Pain, Stacey L. Kale

Doctor of Nursing Practice

An Abstract of the Scholarly Project by

Stacey Kale

Managing back pain has become a public health and clinical challenge (Krein et al., 2016). Incidence of back pain related complaints requiring treatment in the US is estimated at 11.2% of the adult population (Dowell, Haegerich, & Chou, 2016). New research suggests that it is the most common pain problem (Pauline, 2016). It is the third most expensive health disorder and is exceeded only by cancer and heart disease. Many health care providers lack formal pain management education and training thus leaving them at risk for failing to properly manage patients ...
