(1/248) Effect of clinical guidelines in nursing, midwifery, and the therapies: a systematic review of evaluations.

BACKGROUND: Although nursing, midwifery, and professions allied to medicine are increasingly using clinical guidelines to reduce inappropriate variations in practice and ensure higher quality care, there have been no rigorous overviews of their effectiveness, 18 evaluations of guidelines were identified that meet Cochrane criteria for scientific rigor. METHODS: Guideline evaluations conducted since 1975 which used a randomised controlled trial, controlled before and after, or interrupted time series design were identified through a combination of database and hand searching. RESULTS: 18 studies met the inclusion criteria. Three studies evaluated guideline dissemination or implementation strategies, nine compared use of a guideline with a no guideline state; six studies examined skill substitution: performance of nurses operating according to a guideline were compared with standard care, generally provided by a physician. Significant changes in the process of care were found in six out of eight studies measuring process and in which guidelines were expected to have a positive impact on performance. In seven of the nine studies measuring outcomes of care, significant differences in favour of the intervention group were found. Skill substitution studies generally supported the hypothesis of no difference between protocol driven by nurses and care by a physician. Only one study included a formal economic evaluation, with equivocal findings. CONCLUSIONS: Findings from the review provide some evidence that care driven by a guideline can be effective in changing the process and outcome of care. However, many studies fell short of the criteria of the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care Group (EPOC) for methodological quality.  (+info)

(2/248) Are medical informatics and nursing informatics distinct disciplines? The 1999 ACMI debate.

The 1999 debate of the American College of Medical Informatics focused on the proposition that medical informatics and nursing informatics are distinctive disciplines that require their own core curricula, training programs, and professional identities. Proponents of this position emphasized that informatics training, technology applications, and professional identities are closely tied to the activities of the health professionals they serve and that, as nursing and medicine differ, so do the corresponding efforts in information science and technology. Opponents of the proposition asserted that informatics is built on a re-usable and widely applicable set of methods that are common to all health science disciplines, and that "medical informatics" continues to be a useful name for a composite core discipline that should be studied by all students, regardless of their health profession orientation.  (+info)

(3/248) Terminology standards for nursing: collaboration at the summit.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the 1999 Nursing Vocabulary Summit Conference was to seek consensus on and a common approach to the development of nursing terminology standards for use in information systems. METHODS: A four-day invitational conference brought together authors and representatives of responsible organizations concerned with the nursing terminologies recognized or under consideration by the American Nurses Association, along with experts on language and standards and representatives of professional organizations, federal agencies, and the health informatics industry. RESULTS: Participants distinguished between colloquial terminologies and reference terminologies, and between information models and terminology models. They agreed that most recognized nursing terminologies were colloquial terminologies and that a reference terminology was needed. They formed task forces to develop and test aspects of a reference terminology model prior to a second meeting in June 2000, at which they would determine readiness to collaborate on a single international standard. DISCUSSION: The 1999 Nursing Vocabulary Summit Conference changed the level of discussion about nursing vocabulary standards from a debate about the relative merits of the various terminologies recognized in the United States to an examination of methods for developing and testing a reference terminology model and, eventually, a reference terminology that could serve as an international standard.  (+info)

(4/248) Standards for nursing terminology.

Terminology work in nursing has given rise to an increasing number of nursing terminologies. These generally take the form of controlled vocabularies. Because of the limitations of the controlled vocabulary approach, individual terminologies tend to be tuned to meet the specific needs of their intended users. Differences between terminologies are now a significant barrier to the comparison and interchange of health information. To agree on a single, multipurpose terminology would be problematic. However, several options for resolving unnecessary differences between nursing terminologies are currently being explored by international standards bodies and other groups, such as the U.S. Nursing Vocabulary Summit. One such option is the use of a terminology model to facilitate evolution toward a more coherent range of terminologies. The authors describe the motivation behind the development of a standard for nursing terminologies. They explain how a terminology model might form the basis for such a standard through a description of the approach taken by CEN TC251 (the Health Informatics Technical Committee of the European Committee for Standardization). They also discuss possible limitations of standardization.  (+info)

(5/248) Evaluation of the clinical LOINC (Logical Observation Identifiers, Names, and Codes) semantic structure as a terminology model for standardized assessment measures.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to test the adequacy of the Clinical LOINC (Logical Observation Identifiers, Names, and Codes) semantic structure as a terminology model for standardized assessment measures. METHODS: After extension of the definitions, 1, 096 items from 35 standardized assessment instruments were dissected into the elements of the Clinical LOINC semantic structure. An additional coder dissected at least one randomly selected item from each instrument. When multiple scale types occurred in a single instrument, a second coder dissected one randomly selected item representative of each scale type. RESULTS: The results support the adequacy of the Clinical LOINC semantic structure as a terminology model for standardized assessments. Using the revised definitions, the coders were able to dissect into the elements of Clinical LOINC all the standardized assessment items in the sample instruments. Percentage agreement for each element was as follows: component, 100 percent; property, 87.8 percent; timing, 82.9 percent; system/sample, 100 percent; scale, 92.6 percent; and method, 97.6 percent. DISCUSSION: This evaluation was an initial step toward the representation of standardized assessment items in a manner that facilitates data sharing and re-use. Further clarification of the definitions, especially those related to time and property, is required to improve inter-rater reliability and to harmonize the representations with similar items already in LOINC.  (+info)

(6/248) Embedded structures and representation of nursing knowledge.

Nursing Vocabulary Summit participants were challenged to consider whether reference terminology and information models might be a way to move toward better capture of data in electronic medical records. A requirement of such reference models is fidelity to representations of domain knowledge. This article discusses embedded structures in three different approaches to organizing domain knowledge: scientific reasoning, expertise, and standardized nursing languages. The concept of pressure ulcer is presented as an example of the various ways lexical elements used in relation to a specific concept are organized across systems. Different approaches to structuring information-the clinical information system, minimum data sets, and standardized messaging formats-are similarly discussed. Recommendations include identification of the polyhierarchies and categorical structures required within a reference terminology, systematic evaluations of the extent to which structured information accurately and completely represents domain knowledge, and modifications or extensions to existing multidisciplinary efforts.  (+info)

(7/248) An evaluation of ICNP intervention axes as terminology model components.

In this paper we evaluate selected axes of the International Classification of Nursing Practice (ICNP) as terminology model components for nursing actions by dissecting and categorizing two data sets of term phrases (Patient Care Data Set and Home Health Care Classification). Second, we critically analyze the relationships between the ICNP axes and terminology model components used to formally define procedures (including nursing actions) in SNOMED RT. Our findings demonstrate that the semantic categories represented by the ICNP intervention axes are relevant sources for terminology model components for nursing actions. In addition, our findings suggest that only minimal additions or extensions to the current semantic links of SNOMED RT are needed to support the formal definition of nursing actions such as those contained in PCDS and HHCC.  (+info)

(8/248) The evolution of a clinical database: from local to standardized clinical languages.

For more than twenty years, the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Nursing Informatics (UIHC NI) has been developing a clinical database to support patient care planning and documentation in the INFORMM NIS (Information Network for Online Retrieval & Medical Management Nursing Information System). Beginning in 1992, the database content was revised to standardize orders and to incorporate the Standardized Nursing Languages (SNLs) of the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA), Nursing Diagnosis Extension Classification (NDEC), Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC), and Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC). This paper reports the results of the database revision as well as recent usage data, new user selection methods for clinical content, and the advantages of a database utilizing SNLs.  (+info)

ANyone else felt doubts about going into nursing? I may change my whole focus to animals which are really a passion for me. Thanks
  • It will get easier as you get further into it. Everything's tough to start with. Animals will be much harder to work with. If you are thinking of being a vet you will have to be very highly qualified-much more so than a nurse!


  • my son is 3 weeks old and when he was born i nursed him until he was almost 2 weeks and it seemed like he wasnt getting enough, so i started giving him formula every now and then like his dr told me too. he is now getting used to the bottle and eating more and everytime i nurse him its becoming very painfull. i really want to nurse him, but my nipples are really sore sometimes i feel like crying it hurts that bad, and i know if i dont nurse him my milk will dry up. should i just give him the formula and forget about nursing? this didnt happen with my first child. which they weighed different. what should i do?????
  • I agree with Mystic Eye CDA too. I'd like to add that I've read in several sources that you should NOT use nipple shields, this method will discourage proper latch-on. Also, try taking 2-3 capsules of Fenugreek each day to stimulate your milk production. This was recommended to me by the hospital when I had a similar problem & it worked for me. Lastly, don't hesitate to call your hospital & ask the Lactation Consultant for help.

What should the nursing ratio of nurse to how many patients to be of safe level care?

  • In the nursing profession there is a tendancy to have one nurse for 5 acute surgical patients is this a safe practice?
  • It really depends on how complicated your patients are, what shift you work and how much help you have from nurse extenders (CNAs and LPNs).

What nursing scrub design should nurses wear besides the v-neck nursing scrubs?

  • i was kinda curious why nurses wear those v-neck nursing scrubs. maybe it's time to break the monotony and give in to other styles of nursing scrubs. so, what do you think?
  • They wear them because they are the most widely available and usually cheaper than the others. Also, depending on where they work, uniform styles may be dictated by the hospital's dress code. Where I work, all ER nurses must wear a color called ciel blue. We can wear either dresses or scrub pants and tops. We may wear a white sweater or lab coat and white socks or hosiery and white shoes. Other departments wear other colors. Nurses outside the hospital environment usually have a wider choice of colors/patterns/styles that are acceptable and visiting nurses often wear street clothes.

What percentage usually of the current student population to nursing schools usually recruit each semester?

  • I was asking from a nursing school the number of total students in their nursing department out of the3500 students on their campus, and they only replied back that they accept 68 intakes twice per year for adult nursing and 26 intakes twice per year for mental health nursing. So , in your estimation, how many nursing students do you they have in total at this campus?? Thanks for your answers!
  • Well if you're trying to figure out how hard it is to get in the program that won't help, it also won't tell you how many people apply to the nursing program, it only tells you how many get in. In my school this year there were 360 applicants for nursing and 180 seats, so only half who applied got in. I know that where I'm from there is no recruiting, theres an overflow of potential student nurses who are trying hard to get into the program.

What are the best reusable nursing pads?

  • I'm looking for the best REUSABLE nursing pad. I hate how much garbage accumulates in the bathroom with disposable nursing pads and would like to know everyone's experiences with reusable ones.
  • the best reusable nursing pads are the popolini one side 100%wool & inner side 100% untreated bourette silk.

Can you wear something under nursing scrubs to cover an arm tattoo?

  • I am a college student and will be applying to nursing programs within the following year. I'm planning to get a treble clef tattoo on my triceps going as far as 1-1.5 inches above my elbow. Will I be able to cover my tattoo with any clothing under my scrubs? Also, what is the likelihood that the tattoo will affect my admission to any nursing program or work site? Thanks!
  • I've seen plenty of medical professionals with ink. They are covered usually by a nice undershirt. They have some specifically to wear under scrubs: Skinz top. I wouldn't worry too much about it, just maintain your Professional appearance...

What is the best way to diet while nursing?

  • I'm still nursing my 4 month old son. I still have all this weight from my pregnancy. I want to lose it, but I'm afraid to diet and it effect my son because I'm nursing. Can you diet while nursing?
  • Carry on breastfeeding and that will help. I don't think dieting is a good idea. Eat what you feel you need to in order to nourish your baby. You will have plenty of time to diet after you have finished breastfeeding. Also, if you don't keep up correct food and drink intake you milk may not be of good quality and may dry up altogether, so make the alturistic choice here.
