Reflections From The Bedsides Of Dying Patients, Hannah DeCleene, Patrick Kukulich 2017 Jefferson College of Pharmacy 2019

Reflections From The Bedsides Of Dying Patients, Hannah Decleene, Patrick Kukulich

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

I walked into a room with its lights glaring and television blaring, a room where a man I had never met before would take his final breath two hours later. The attending nurse kindly dimmed the lights and turned off the television. I sat down next to him. I felt panic. I felt sadness, and I felt peace. This individual would have passed without me knowing, yet I was there with him; he wouldn’t be alone.

The No One Dies Alone (NODA) chapter at Jefferson launched in May, 2016. It launched as a vision in which students of Thomas ...


Using A Tailored Health Information Technology Driven Intervention To Improve Health Literacy And Medication Adherence (Talkingrx), Brenda Fay 2016 Aurora Health Care

Using A Tailored Health Information Technology Driven Intervention To Improve Health Literacy And Medication Adherence (Talkingrx), Brenda Fay

Brenda Fay

Although most patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome or acute ischemic stroke in South Asian countries receive these evidence-based treatments, their overall continuation in the outpatient phase of care remains low. Patient from Pakistan are uniquely challenged in this respect because the overall literacy rates remain one of the lowest in Pakistan among South Asian Countries. In addition, a great majority of Pakistani patients often do not understand or follow health prescriptions (which are still written in English). Additionally, due to an unregulated health industry, they frequently take multiple opinions and prescriptions from different physicians. The investigators propose to develop ...


Characterization Of Physicochemical And Thermal Properties Of Biofield Treated Ethyl Cellulose And Methyl Cellulose, Mahendra Trivedi 2016 Trivedi Global Inc.

Characterization Of Physicochemical And Thermal Properties Of Biofield Treated Ethyl Cellulose And Methyl Cellulose, Mahendra Trivedi

Mahendra Kumar Trivedi

Cellulose and its derivatives are used as potential matrices for biomaterials and tissue engineering applications. The objective of present research was to investigate the influence of biofield treatment on physical, chemical and thermal properties of ethyl cellulose (EC) and methyl cellulose (MC). The study was performed in two groups (control and treated). The control group remained as untreated, and biofield treatment was given to treated group. The biofield treated polymers are characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), CHNSO analysis, X-ray diffraction study (XRD), Differential Scanning calorimetry (DSC), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). FT-IR analysis of treated EC showed downward shifting ...

The Effects Orthostatic Hypotension Has On Falls: A Study Done In San Francisco With The Patient Population Of The Veterans Affairs Hospital, Sherry A. Ballard Ms. 2016 University of San Francisco

The Effects Orthostatic Hypotension Has On Falls: A Study Done In San Francisco With The Patient Population Of The Veterans Affairs Hospital, Sherry A. Ballard Ms.

Master's Projects

The Effects Orthostatic Hypotension has on Falls: A Study Done in San Francisco Represented

Population of the Veterans Affairs Hoapital

The global AIM of this project is to Identify patients that are at risk for Orthostatic Hypotension (OH) with in the first 24 hours of addmission. It was identified that 50% of the falls over the last 4 quarters at the VA were OH related. The patients were not identified as a fall risk and over half of them had fallen multiple times. After performing a nursing survey online, a SWOT analysis, and a Root Cause Analysis using a fishbone ...


Development Of Cxcr4-Inhibiting Nanoparticles For The Treatment Of Metastatic Cancer, Yan Wang 2016 University of Nebraska Medical Center

Development Of Cxcr4-Inhibiting Nanoparticles For The Treatment Of Metastatic Cancer, Yan Wang

Theses & Dissertations

Metastasis is the main cause of cancer mortality and morbidity, leading to several million deaths every year. Less than 20% of pancreatic cancer (PC) patients are candidates for surgery due to spread beyond the pancreas. Desmoplasia presents substantial barriers to perfusion, diffusion, and convection of antitumor therapeutics into the PC tissues. We focus on developing novel therapies that regulates tumor microenvironment, chemosensitizing tumor to therapeutics and preventing metastasis.

Gene therapy is emerging as a promising new therapeutic agents for cancer treatment. A targeted, systemic, effective and safe gene delivery system should be developed. CXCR4/SDF-1 axis plays a crucial role ...


A Delphi Process To Address Medication Appropriateness For Older Persons With Multiple Chronic Conditions, Terri R. Fried, Kristina Niehoff, Jennifer Tjia, Nancy Redeker, Mary K. Goldstein 2016 Yale University

A Delphi Process To Address Medication Appropriateness For Older Persons With Multiple Chronic Conditions, Terri R. Fried, Kristina Niehoff, Jennifer Tjia, Nancy Redeker, Mary K. Goldstein

Jennifer Tjia

BACKGROUND: Frameworks exist to evaluate the appropriateness of medication regimens for older patients with multiple medical conditions (MCCs). Less is known about how to translate the concepts of the frameworks into specific strategies to identify and remediate inappropriate regimens.

METHODS: Modified Delphi method involving iterative rounds of input from panel members. Panelists (n = 9) represented the disciplines of nursing, medicine and pharmacy. Included among the physicians were two geriatricians, one general internist, one family practitioner, one cardiologist and two nephrologists. They participated in 3 rounds of web-based anonymous surveys.

RESULTS: The panel reached consensus on a set of markers to ...

Implementation Of Community Pharmacy Dispensing Software (Mydispense) In An Advanced Pharmacy Practice Course, Clark Kebodeaux, Keith Sewell

Clark Kebodeaux

Objectives: MyDispense is an interactive community pharmacy simulation program designed to build students’ confidence related to community pharmacy practice. MyDispense was implemented in the Advanced Pharmacy Practice course at St. Louis College of Pharmacy during the P3 year as an activity and assessment for competency in the community pharmacy setting. In order to make future curriculum improvements, the objective of this study is to evaluate the usefulness and applicability of the MyDispense program into a required course.

Method: The study will consist of an anonymous online survey available to students in the Advanced Pharmacy Practice course for two weeks following ...

Student Perception Of The Impact Of Audience Response Software In A Team-Based Learning Self-Care Course, Clark Kebodeaux, Leslie Woodyard, Golden Peters, Patrick Finnegan

Clark Kebodeaux

Objectives: Evidence evaluating audience response systems (ARS) used in team-based learning (TBL) compared to traditional classes is limited. The objectives of this study are to evaluate student perceptions of the technology and compare students’ assessment of technology with their performance. Method: TBL was implemented in the required self-care course (PP2120: Introduction to Pharmaceutical Care: Non-prescription drugs) at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, and an audience response system was implemented in Fall 2015. At the conclusion of the course, a web-based survey was administered to students. Results: Of the 29 students who successfully completed the course, 23 (79%) completed the survey ...

The use of herbomineral formulations in the healthcare sector has increased due to their high safety and better therapeutic action. A new proprietary herbomineral formulation was formulated with a mixture of the herbal root extract of ashwagandha and three minerals viz. zinc chloride, magnesium gluconate, and sodium selenate. The aim of the study was to evaluate the immunomodulatory potential of Biofield Energy Healing (The Trivedi Effect®) on the formulation when applied to splenocyte cells isolated from mice spleen. The formulation was divided into two parts; one was the control without any Biofield Energy Treatment, while the other part was defined ...
