Acute Stress Disorder And Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Screening In Pediatric Trauma Patients, Samantha Irizarry, Marian Malone, Megan Waddell

Graduate Publications and Other Selected Works - Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

BACKGROUND: Two-thirds of U.S. children and adolescents report experiencing one or more potentially traumatic events by age seventeen. 13.4% of the North Carolina pediatric population ages 0-17 have undergone two or more traumatic adverse childhood experiences, compared to 14% of the U.S. population. Early identification reduces the by-products of underdiagnosis of ASD and PTSD, such as mental illness, developmental delays, poor academic performance, and challenges with social interactions.

LOCAL PROBLEM: The project site is a level-one pediatric trauma hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, seeing more than 130,000 patients annually. Before project implementation, there was an absence of ASD …

Reducing Iatrogenic Opiate Withdrawal In The Picu: An Evidence-Based Practice Improvement Project, Kaitlin Kirk Ogle, Marian Malone, Will Guider

Graduate Publications and Other Selected Works - Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

BACKGROUND: Current recommendations to reduce pain associated with mechanical ventilation is the administration of opiate and benzodiazepine infusions for Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) patients. If these infusions are weaned too quickly, iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome (IWS) often occurs. IWS symptoms include tachycardia, hypertension, diaphoresis, fever, irritability, tremors, clonus, hyperactive reflexes, vomiting, and diarrhea. Untreated IWS can lead to life-threatening complications.
LOCAL PROBLEM: The PICU at the project site contains fourteen beds and treats critically-ill pediatric patients. There was no standardized withdrawal assessment tool in practice. The purpose of this project was to implement the Withdrawal Assessment Tool-Version 1 …

A Quality Improvement Project To Improve The Management Of Group A Streptococcalpharyngitis Among Children, Tara Denise Gutierrez

Doctor of Nursing Practice

Group A Streptococcal (GAS) pharyngitis is one of the most common pediatric illnesses and accounts for more than ten million yearly medical visits. GAS is commonly misdiagnosed due to overlapping symptoms. The health care provider needs to distinguish which criteria warrant testing for GAS and the recommendations for management and treatment.

The purpose and objectives of this quality improvement project were to improve adherence to the 2021 Canadian guidelines for the management and treatment of GAS pharyngitis in a small community urgent care clinic. Anticipated outcomes for this project included a decrease in unnecessary testing for GAS pharyngitis, a decrease …


The Role Of Safety Interventions In Decreasing Unplanned Extubations In Pediatrics: A Benchmark Study, Wesley Bray 2023 University of Texas at Tyler

The Role Of Safety Interventions In Decreasing Unplanned Extubations In Pediatrics: A Benchmark Study, Wesley Bray

MSN Capstone Projects

Unplanned extubation (UE) is the removal of an endotracheal tube from a patient any time before their planned extubation. In layman’s terms it is when a patient loses their airway before they were ready. These events lead to longer hospital stays, cost hospitals thousands of dollars for each case and can cause severe complications for the patient including death. Pediatric patients are a population that are at risk of UEs more so than the general population due to their inability to understand what is going on in the hospital due to their age and development, as well as their ability …


Improving Access To Care For Specialty Pediatric Orthopedic Patients: Maximizing Telehealth To Achieve Outcomes, Tammy Keesey 2023 University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences

Improving Access To Care For Specialty Pediatric Orthopedic Patients: Maximizing Telehealth To Achieve Outcomes, Tammy Keesey

Student Scholarly Projects

Practice Problem: The lack of resources such as transportation, insurance, and finances can negatively impact a patient’s access to much-needed specialty care. Providing education, assessing telehealth literacy, and creating a specific process for identifying appropriate telehealth visits can improve pediatric specialty access to care.

PICOT: The PICOT question for this project was: In pediatric orthopedic clinic patients (P), what is the impact of the active introduction of telehealth as a clinic visit option (I) versus the current standard passive process of scheduling telehealth visits (C) on the rates of access to care (O) after nine total weeks of …

Garden-Based Nutrition Education For Low Income Hispanic School Children, Larry Bui

Nursing | Student Research Posters

Background: Childhood obesity is a pressing public health concern in the United States, with rates continuing to increase in recent years.

Risk And Protective Factors To Well-Being In Foster Care Youth Prescribed Psychotropic Medication In A Wraparound Program Of Care, Ann Reali Stratton

Dissertations

Background: Youth in foster care are prescribed psychotropic medications at higher rates and are more likely to experience disruptions to their medical care. Wraparound models of care have been shown to improve outcomes for youths on psychotropic medications, however, these methods have proved difficult to replicate in the foster care population.

Objective: This research will evaluate the characteristics of foster care youth as they enter a Wraparound model of care and the predictive …


Lost In Interpretation: The Lived Experience Of Nurse Interpreters In The Clinical Setting, Byron Batz 2023 University of San Diego

Lost In Interpretation: The Lived Experience Of Nurse Interpreters In The Clinical Setting, Byron Batz

Dissertations

The use of language interpreters in the health care setting constitutes a vital part of provider-patient communication but remains a relatively unexplored phenomenon. Registered nurses (RNs) are often called upon to serve as interpreters when linguistically diverse patients constitute a large segment of the patient population. That RNs serve simultaneously in an interpreter role – in addition to clinical and advocacy roles – is a complex facet of contemporary nursing practice in a diverse U.S. culture. The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study was to examine the lived experience of RNs serving as interpreters in health care institutions in Southern …

The recommendation is then applied translated to clinical practice. For the purposes of this project, the community which I am a part of needed improvement on the education of healthcare providers regarding post- concussive care in the pediatric population.

Mandatory Child Abuse And Neglect Reporting Behaviors Among Registered Nurses In New Mexico: A Statewide Comparative Study, Ingrid Ann Wilson

Nursing ETDs

Child abuse and/or neglect (CAN) is a global problem. Although nurses are mandated CAN reporters, a lack of reporting has been an issue. New Mexico (NM) is faced with higher child poverty and CAN-related substance-abuse compared to other U.S. states. This quantitative study aimed to explore factors influencing intended/actual CAN reporting behaviors among NM registered nurses (RN)s, examine relationships of these factors, and compare differences in reporting behaviors between rural and urban locations. A survey to a sample of RNs (N=146) showed factors associated with CAN reporting intended behaviors were work status (r=.21, p < .05), cues to action (r=.20, …
