Background: Disparities in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) risk, care, and complications impact Black Americans more than that of their White counterparts. This study aims to examine the association between discrimination, racism, and T2DM care and outcomes in Black Americans. Method: The systematic review was performed according to the Preferred Reporti...
Article
Background: Multisite studies offer larger, more diverse samples to successfully capture populations and clinical practices of interest at the point of care. However, investigators face challenges with site recruitment and sampling, differences in clinical practices across sites, and data integrity. Addressing these issues a priori can improve the...

The COVID-19 pandemic presented challenges to onboard and support new graduate nurses (NGNs). This study sought to explore the perceptions of nurses entering clinical practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using mixed methods, we investigated the experiences of NGNs entering the field during the pandemic and how a nurse residency program (NRP) adap...

Introduction: Emergency department (ED) staff are at a high risk for compassion fatigue (CF) due to a work environment that combines high patient acuity, violence, and other workplace stressors. This multifaceted syndrome has wide-ranging impacts which, if left untreated, can lead to adverse mental health conditions including depression, anxiety,...
Preprint
Cross-sectional imaging, such as computed tomography (CTA) scans, provide unparalleled visualization of aortic anatomy. However, despite the immense geometric and anatomic detail provided by CTA imaging, surgeons continue to interact with this data in a linear and dimensionally reduced feature space. Aortic pathologies such as aneurysms and dissect...
Article
Background: Delirium commonly affects hospitalized patients and is associated with increased hospital length of stay, discharge to skilled care, cost, morbidity, and mortality. Local problem: At our organization, there was no formal delirium assessment performed by the nursing staff outside of the intensive care unit. Methods: Assessment of nu...
Article
Objectives: Racial/ethnic disparities in utilizing inpatient palliative care services are well documented in the adult literature. However, the impact of racial/ethnic disparities in the context of pediatric palliative care is less well understood even in high-acuity patient populations such as stem cell transplant patients. We investigated racial...
Article
Aims The majority of patients in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) experience pain daily, while nonpharmacologic interventions are indicated for pain management in children, there is limited information on which nonpharmacologic interventions are provided in the PICU and which patients receive those interventions. The aim of this descriptive...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives: Pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Pediatric palliative care (PPC) services could provide an integral component of the comprehensive care necessary for these patients and their families. The main objectives of this study are to examine the utilization of PPC following...
Article
Full-text available
Injury severity score (ISS) is a widely used metric for trauma research and center verification; however, it does not account for age-related physiologic parameters. We hypothesized that a novel age-based injury severity metric would better predict mortality. Methods: Adult patients(≥18y) sustaining blunt (BT) or penetrating(PT) trauma were abstr...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused over 1,250,000 deaths worldwide. With limited therapeutic options, proning nonintubated patients emerged as a safe and affordable intervention to manage hypoxemia. Methods: A proning protocol to identify and prone eligible patients was implemented. Patients were encouraged to self-prone for 2-3 hour...
Article
Background: Proning intubated intensive care unit patients for the management of acute respiratory distress syndrome is an accepted standard of practice. We examined the nursing climate in 4 units and its impact on implementing a novel self-proning protocol to treat COVID-19 patients outside the intensive care unit. Local problem: Nursing units...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Pain assessment is the first step in managing pain; however, this can be challenging, particularly in settings such as the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). This paper reports the current pain assessment practices from a study that was conducted describing the prevalence of pain, pain assessment, painful procedures, interventions, and...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Pain management in critically ill children is complex. Epidemiological research is needed to identify how often patients in pediatric intensive care units experience pain and the practices being used to lessen pain. Objectives: To describe pain assessment and intervention practices in pediatric intensive care units, determine the pre...
Article
Pain assessment in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is complex, as the patient population is diverse in age, cognitive development, and acuity. Appropriate use of pain assessment instruments is vital for clinicians to identify patients experiencing pain and to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions provided. The Face, Legs, Activity, C...
Article
The majority of patients in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) experience pain daily, whether from their critical illness, therapies provided, and/or diagnostic procedures. Effective pain management is essential for this vulnerable population. Nonpharmacological interventions are indicated for pain management in children and may augment the e...
Article
Introduction: Dysphagia occurs in over half of patients who have sustained acute stroke, and can lead to aspiration, subsequent pneumonia, increased length of hospital stay and death. Identification of dysphagia is vital to reduce these risks prior to oral intake or administration of oral medications. Swallow screening is an effective tool to ident...
Article
Objective: To evaluate an interactive tool designed to help patients communicate their social resources supportive of home recovery to health care providers. Methods: Seventy medical and surgical inpatients completed the D-CEGRM social resource interview, demographic queries, and discharge readiness surveys (RHDS) at discharge. Two weeks later,...
Article
Despite significant advances in cancer treatment and symptom management interventions over the last decade, patients continue to struggle with cancer-related symptoms. Adequate baseline and longitudinal data are crucial for designing interventions to improve patient quality of life and reduce symptom burden; however, recruitment of patients with ad...
Article
Background: Stress from multiple sources is inherent in law enforcement. However, it is possible to modify responses to stress with resilience training that includes teaching techniques to modify emotional and physical responses to stress, interface with mental health professionals, and practice sessions to improve self-regulation of responses to...
Article
Identifying those at risk of poor outcomes after hospital discharge is a central focus of health care systems. Our purpose was to better understand whether and how patient- and nurse-assessed readiness for discharge (Pt- and RN-RHDS) is related to patient experiences after discharge. We conducted a prospective survey of 70 Veterans and their assign...
Article
Full-text available
The development of patient profiles to subgroup individuals on a variety of variables has gained attention as a potential means to better inform clinical decision-making. Patterns of pain sensitivity response specific to quantitative sensory testing (QST) modality have been demonstrated in healthy subjects. It has not been determined if these patte...
Article
Patient characteristics and lack of preparedness are associated with poor outcomes after hospital discharge. Our purpose was to explore the association between patient characteristics and patient- and nurse-completed Readiness for Hospital Discharge Scale (RHDS). We conducted a prospective study of 70 Veterans being discharged from medical and surg...
Article
The positive association between individual social support and diabetes health outcomes is well established. However, most tools for assessing social support are highly structured and are rarely used in clinical settings and/or clinical outcomes research. A novel tool that has been shown to engage patients in the identification and use of their soc...
