Nursing Faculty Research Publications

Peripheral venous catheters (PVC) are often used to provide hydration, medications, and blood products when the length of therapy is expected to be less that one week. Pain and phlebitis are frequent complications of PVC. Diclofenac and EMLA have been used to minimize these adverse effects, however, conflicting results have been reported regarding which has better outcomes. This double-blind, randomized controlled trial was conducted to compare the efficacy of EMLA and Diclofenac (TDP) in attenuating PVC pain and phlebitis. The inpatient setting was chosen because of the higher frequency of PVC insertions, allowing for a sufficient sample size. One hundred ...


Healing Wounds Through Nutrition, Deanna Garza 2018 The University of San Francisco

Healing Wounds Through Nutrition, Deanna Garza

Master's Projects and Capstones

Abstract

The role of nutrition in wound care is often overlooked. The main reasons why wounds fail to heal are malnutrition, infection, impaired organ function due to co-existing diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, renal disease, and peripheral vascular disease to name a few. These factors have contributed to poor patient outcomes and patient satisfaction, as well as an increase in hospital length of stay. To promote wound healing, fuel from macro and micronutrients are necessary to deliver oxygen and energy for cell regeneration. However, nurses must possess knowledge and understanding of these requirements and the effects of nutrition on wound ...

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

L’étalage des processus cognitifs et métacognitifs engagés chez les expertes dans des situations authentiques de la pratique est peu exposé ou exploité dans la formation infirmière : les étudiantes y accèdent rarement ou sporadiquement. En d’autres mots, le savoir tacite développé chez les expertes demeure trop souvent silencieux et les étudiantes n’obtiennent pas d’explication, de justification ou d’articulation intentionnelle des hypothèses et des interventions cliniques avancées par les expertes dans des situations authentiques de la pratique professionnelle. Dès lors, comment mieux tirer profit du raisonnement clinique infirmier des expertes et créer un mode d’accompagnement pour ...
