Electronic Cigarette Health Education Interventions, Kaitlyn Skryd

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Purpose: To determine the effective teaching strategies and interventions aimed at discontinuing the use of e-cigarettes amongst the adolescent population. This information would be useful to community health experts, healthcare providers, teachers (especially health educators), and parents.

Research Question: Will education interventions from health care providers regarding the harmful health effects of electronic cigarettes to American adolescents (aged 10-19) impact the incidence of everyday e-cigarette smokers?

Research Design: An integrative literature review was used to determine the most effective educational approaches to use towards reducing e-cigarette use in the adolescent population.

Embedding Interprofessional Activities With Physical Therapy And Athletic Training Students In Shared Professional Course, Katie Sniffen, Anthony P. Breitbach, Erick Briggs, Leslie Hinyard

International Journal of Health Sciences Education

Introduction and Background: Interprofessional education (IPE) is outlined in many health professions education standards creating an increased demand for its inclusion in already crowded curricula with limited faculty and financial resources. The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) developed “Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice” that outline a framework for meaningful IPE experiences. Case-based learning activities have been used to foster improvements in interprofessional role clarity, communication, and rapport among student groups. The authors describe one trial of incorporating interprofessional and team work activities in a shared professional course and report on student learning outcomes in the context of IPEC competencies.

Methods: A 6-month pilot was conducted with 11 residents who participated in 32 home visits with 11 patients. Patient and resident experiences were captured through a survey following the home visits.

Results: In all, 100% of patients and a majority of residents were very interested in being a part of and incorporating future home visits, respectively. Every patient in the survey said that the visits resulted ...


Adapting First Aid Education To Fragile Contexts: A Qualitative Study, Ellen Gordon, Thomas Wilp, Emily Oliver, Jeffrey L. Pellegrino 2019 British Red Cross

Adapting First Aid Education To Fragile Contexts: A Qualitative Study, Ellen Gordon, Thomas Wilp, Emily Oliver, Jeffrey L. Pellegrino

International Journal of First Aid Education

Evidence for international first aid guidelines predominantly comes from studies conducted in western contexts during peacetime and/or healthcare settings. Yet, internationally the burden of trauma falls on low- and middle-income countries where lay responders might have to act in fragile contexts, where first aid and healthcare resources are limited or not available.

This study focuses on the principles and practices that govern first aid education (FAE), versus clinical evidence of first aid interventions. Accepting that application of first aid may vary according to context, we sought to understand educational principles according to contextual resources of fragile and non-fragile environments ...

Elbow Injury Prevention In Youth Dominican Baseball Players: A Training Intervention Pilot Study, Chelsey Erbaugh Franz, Dawn Hall-Bibb, Myra Stockdale, Aliya Thompson, Bailey Biggs

Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice

Background: Research suggests deficits in shoulder and elbow strength and flexibility may explain the role of elbow injuries in overhead athletes, specifically ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury in baseball players. Significant damage to this ligament typically requires operative care for continued activity in the sport. Several studies have demonstrated the success of rehabilitation programs post-surgery; however, few studies have examined the role of UCL injury prevention programs. A recognized upper extremity (UE) injury prevention method is the Thrower’s Ten Program. This program may create elbow stability when pitching and throwing, theoretically reducing the risk of UCL injury. Purpose: The ...

Interprofessional Student Hotspotting: Impact Of Federally Qualified Health Centers (Fqhc) On Complex Patients, Alexis Amendola, Pallavi Chary, Andrew Day, Graziella Holland, Michelle Murray, Jesse Simpson 2019 Thomas Jefferson University

Interprofessional Student Hotspotting: Impact Of Federally Qualified Health Centers (Fqhc) On Complex Patients, Alexis Amendola, Pallavi Chary, Andrew Day, Graziella Holland, Michelle Murray, Jesse Simpson

JCIPE Posters

Individuals with complex health and social needs drive much of the total cost of care, accounting for nearly 50% of annual costs. Studies show that patients’ use of community health centers is associated with lower health care costs, less frequent use of emergency departments, and fewer preventable hospitalizations, compared to patients who do not use the health centers. Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) provide patients with medical homes where they can build ongoing, personal relationships with treatment teams, resulting in continuous, comprehensive and integrated care.

Additionally, addressing these individuals' needs and decreasing costs requires interprofessional teams to engage with communities ...

United States Healthcare Dilemma

In the United States, a large proportion of healthcare resources and costs are utilized by a small percentage of the population.

  • Approximately 25% of the United States healthcare costs are incurred by 1 percent of the population, while 5% are of healthcare costs are incurred by 50% of the population. The small percentage of the individuals who consume large amounts of resources has led to the term “super-utilizers.”
  • These patients usually have complex and hard-to-manage conditions, as well as socioeconomic barriers to care, which frequently lead to potentially avoidable emergency department and hospital admissions and complications ...

Healthcare spending in the U.S. reached $3.5 trillion in 20171. Half of this spending was due to only 5% of patients. Hotspotting is the practice of identifying high-utilizing patients and providing them ancillary care. Supporting such patients with nutrition information, care coordination, clinician communication, health education, and treatment adherence coaching benefits the patients, clinicians, and healthcare system. The Jefferson Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Program places students of different educational programs into teams to identify high-utilizing patients and provide them individualized and holistic care. It is an intimate longitudinal clinical experience for students and an opportunity to improve the health ...

By participating in the Student Hotspotting Program, students learned that:

  • Coordinating the care of a complex patient requires an interprofessional team
  • Hotspotting interventions can often be complicated by uncontrollable circumstances
  • Building trust is key to working with patients who may be hesitant to engage with the healthcare system
  • Successful interprofessional healthcare teams are characterized by specific attributes
  • As future healthcare practitioners, we can apply these lessons into our own interprofessional interactions to optimize our treatment plans for complex patients

Listen To Us: Dad-Endorsed Strategies For Ehdi Professionals, Holly F. Pedersen Dr., Jerusha Olthoff

Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention

While fathers play an increasingly important role in today’s families, there is an imbalance of research regarding fathers of children with disabilities compared to mothers. Modest research with mothers of children who are deaf/hard of hearing exists; however, very limited research is available specific to fathers of that population. With the advent of newborn hearing screening, the number of children who have hearing loss being identified within the first six months of life has significantly increased. Thus, the number of fathers participating in EHDI services has also increased. Seeking to answer the question, What do fathers’ experiences in ...

Just Culture: It's More Than Policy, Linda Ann Paradiso, Nancy Sweeney

Publications and Research

Any healthcare organization’s top priority is effective and safe care. Despite this, medical error is the third-leading cause of death in the US. Hospitals are imperfect systems where nurses have competing demands and are forced to improvise and develop workarounds. Errors rarely occur in a vacuum, rather they’re a sequence of events with multiple opportunities for correction. Clinical nurses can have a significant impact on reducing errors due to their proximity to patients. When errors are identified, the events and impact on safe care need to be shared. Just culture is a safe haven that supports reporting. In ...

Using Short Message (Sms) To Deliver Appointment Reminders And Reduce No-Show Rates: An Evidence-Based Practice Project, Fernando Serrano

Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts

Background/Objectives: Missed appointments (MAs) are correlated with reduced treatment efficacy, increased financial burden on medical institutions, and early treatment terminations for therapy (DeFife, Conklin, Smith, & Poole, 2010). MAs occur for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to severity of illness, financial/geographic constraints, and forgetting the appointment (Filippidou, Lingwood, & Mirza, 2014). Appointment compliance within outpatient mental health clinics has a wide variance with some clinics reporting MAs ranging from 15% to 50% (Car, Gurol-Urganci, de Jongh, Vodopivec-Jamsek, & Atun, 2013).

With decreasing costs and a subsequent massive increase in mobile phone technology use by the general population, Short ...

Learning Science: Physical And Life Sciences In Curricula Across U.S. Schools Of Nursing, Valerie C. Sauda

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Nursing educators are being challenged to provide curriculum that meets the changing healthcare environment and demand for creative, innovative nurses to assist in transforming healthcare into the future (Benner, Sutphen, Leonard, & Day, 2010; Institute Of Medicine, 2011). The liberal education provided within a baccalaureate of science in nursing (BSN) degree program provides a diversity of courses within the curriculum, including courses in the natural, physical, mathematical, and social sciences (American Association of Colleges of Nursing [AACN], 2008). Although nursing programs have included science courses in curriculum since the early 1900s (Nutting & Dock, 1907), there is lack of nursing educational research as to ...
