Management Of Opioid Use Disorder In Primary Care, Carolyn Jeffries 2023 Arcadia University

Management Of Opioid Use Disorder In Primary Care, Carolyn Jeffries

Capstone Showcase

The prevalence of opioid use disorder (OUD) in the United States, and worldwide, has drastically increased in the span of 2-3 years. OUD is considered chronic condition and as such requires routine care over a lifetime. This makes OUD patients excellent candidates to be managed by primary care providers (PCPs). This article discusses the various barriers to treatment of OUD in a primary care setting as well methods and models that aim to mitigate these barriers. We will also review how to take a detailed assessment of an OUD patient, mainstays of medication assisted treatment (MAT), and management of side …


Continuity Of Care In Rural Surgical Patients, Sydney M. Cardozo 2023 University of Vermont

Continuity Of Care In Rural Surgical Patients, Sydney M. Cardozo

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Continuity of care is an integral part of patient care and is important for reducing morbidity and mortality following hospitalizations. Medical errors are common during transitions of care, and are most frequently caused by lack of suitable discharge planning and poor communication between surgical teams, patients, and primary care physicians. This project aims to create a new standardized note template for surgery teams to use when discharging patients, with the goal of augmenting communication and efficiency during transitions of care within and outside the UVM Health Network.

Outcomes Of Patients With Copd During The Covid Pandemic, Jacob Hentges, Julia Fashner

East Florida Research Day 2023

A scoping review of COVID-19's impact on healthcare delivery and health outcomes found disruptions in care delivery and a shift towards telemedicine(1). Another study found no significant change in the length of stay for patients admitted to the hospital for COPD exacerbation during the pandemic period compared to the pre-pandemic period(2).

We conducted a secondary analysis of HCA Florida St. Lucie Hospital data to compare the outcomes of patients with COPD before (Jan 2018 – Feb 2020) and during the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 – Dec 2021). The data included patients aged over 18 years who were diagnosed with COPD …

The Impact Of A Blood Pressure Reduction Program In Optimizing Control Of Hypertension Amongst Adult Females In An Outpatient Ambulatory Clinic, Brooke Englert 2023 University of Kentucky

The Impact Of A Blood Pressure Reduction Program In Optimizing Control Of Hypertension Amongst Adult Females In An Outpatient Ambulatory Clinic, Brooke Englert

DNP Projects

Background: Hypertension (HTN) is a public health problem that, when well-controlled, can significantly reduce the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure and death. Effective patient-provider communication strongly incentivizes an improvement in medical outcomes. Communication with patients can often be effectively delegated to other clinical staff, such as registered nurses (RNs) or clinical service technicians (CSTs) (Tavakoly Sany, Behzhad, Ferns & Peyman, 2020).

Purpose: Given the increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality of uncontrolled HTN, the purpose of this study was to implement and evaluate a standardized, evidence-based practice intervention via communication between APRN providers and patients …


Evaluating Kentucky Advanced Practice Registered Nurses’ Confidence, Comfort, And Knowledge Levels Regarding Dermatology Care After A Web-Based Video Training, Victoria Hayden 2023 University of Kentucky

Evaluating Kentucky Advanced Practice Registered Nurses’ Confidence, Comfort, And Knowledge Levels Regarding Dermatology Care After A Web-Based Video Training, Victoria Hayden

DNP Projects

Background: It can take an average of 38.9 days to see dermatology from referral to initial appointment. As a result, delays in diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening conditions such as malignant melanoma could occur. Primary care providers frequently refer patients for benign conditions that can be appropriately managed in the primary care setting; often due to lack of knowledge or confidence in their clinical management skills. Educational resources equip providers with the knowledge and tools to feel confident in their management of various skin conditions in a primary care setting. Purpose: The purpose of this project was to …


Depression Management Among Primary Care Providers: Evaluation Of An Educational Intervention, Whitney Hunt 2023 University of Kentucky

Depression Management Among Primary Care Providers: Evaluation Of An Educational Intervention, Whitney Hunt

DNP Projects

Background: Nearly one-third of patients diagnosed with depression and prescribed an antidepressant medication will stop taking their medication within the first month. Timely follow-up care can improve medication adherence and symptoms for depressed patients on antidepressants however, most patients do not receive timely follow-up. Common system and provider-based barriers to timely follow-up include limited provider time, lack of training, and mental health stigma.

Objective: The purpose of this project was to assess provider attitudes, knowledge level, perceived barriers, and current depression management strategies in a primary care setting.

Methods: In this quasi-experimental one group pre/post-test study a survey was used …


Evaluation Of Patient And Clinical Staff Perceptions Of Screening For Social Needs In An Underserved Population, Alysha Greenwell 2023 University of Kentucky

Evaluation Of Patient And Clinical Staff Perceptions Of Screening For Social Needs In An Underserved Population, Alysha Greenwell

DNP Projects

Abstract

Background. Despite ample strong evidence linking social determinants of health (SDOH) and unmet social needs to higher healthcare costs and worse health outcomes across the lifespan, only 16% of healthcare practices screen their patients for social needs. Various barriers contribute to low screening rates, including uncertainty about best methods for screening, the amount of time it takes to screen, and lack of confidence in knowing what to do once needs have been identified. As movements toward value-based models of care change the healthcare landscape, healthcare systems must find practical and effective methods to effectively screen for social needs utilizing …
