One of the things that nurse practitioners want to do across the county is to practice to the extent of their license. In many states this has become a reality, and in several other states this concept is not yet a reality.. This is not due to lack of evidence - the data is there (see Quality of Nurse Practitioner Practice). Its also not from lack of support from the Institute of Medicine to the Federal Trade Commission.. Missouri is one of the states that is facing challenges in health outcomes and access to care. Its also one of the states that currently has one of the most restrictive practice acts…but I understand it was not always this way (See The APRN White Paper for Missouri) and there was a time when both health outcomes and access were better than they are today.. AMNP recently released a fact list about NP practice in Missouri and HB 1866 which ...

Ambiguity exists over the use of the term "nurse practitioner," with much debate about this role. 22 23 The overlap between nursing roles in the United Kingdom and the introduction of another advanced practice nursing title, nurse consultant, adds to the difficulty in understanding the role definitions in nursing. 1 2 24 Although specific training for nurse practitioners is available, the content of this varies.25 Because of this ambiguity, the definition used in our review was purposefully inclusive.. Our review was limited by the quality of the available studies. There were few recent randomised trials, and the larger number of observational studies were generally of poor quality. Because of these problems we based our conclusions primarily on the randomised trials, the more recent of which were of generally high quality, although only one study used patients new to both providers.14. ...

In the United States, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act defines what substances require a prescription for them to be dispensed by a pharmacy.

They are then issued unique Drug Enforcement Act numbers; many other mental and physical health technicians, including basic-level registered nurses, medical assistants, emergency medical technicians, most psychologists, and social workers, for example, do not have the authority to prescribe any controlled substance.[13]. The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) was enacted into law by the US Congress of the United States in 1970. It is the federal drug law that regulates manufacture, importation, possession, use, ...

Researchers report that a brief behavioral treatment appears to alleviate insomnia in older adults for at least six months. The intervention consisted of two in-person sessions and two phone calls.. An estimated 15 percent to 35 percent of older U.S. adults have insomnia, according to background information in the article. Insomnia is associated with falls and hip fractures among older adults.. Even though pharmacologic and behavioral treatments are approximately equally effective, older adults are prescribed hypnotic agents at disproportionate rates and are also more likely than younger patients to experience adverse drug effects.. Daniel J. Buysse, M.D., of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and colleagues conducted a randomized clinical trial of a brief behavioral treatment involving 79 older adults (average age 71.7) with insomnia.. Thirty-nine received the treatment, consisting of individualized behavioral instruction delivered by a nurse clinician over ...
I met with Karen Cullen, CDE, nurse clinician, and research coordinator in pediatric endocrinology at UMass Memorial Health Care to ask her some questions about lancets.. What can happen if you dont change it? There is no evidence that you can get an infection from reusing your own lancet. Although there could be microscopic bits of blood left behind, these generally dont cause any problems. The sharpness of the lancet will certainly diminish, which can cause it to hurt more. Think about cutting a steak with a spoon. So really, the worst thing that might happen is that youll have to increase the depth so that the dull tip can get through. Ouch.. Which part of our fingers should we be using? All ten fingers are fair game. If you dont like the hard calluses that develop, then rotate! The poke should actually be done on the sides of the fingers above the knuckle, not the tip and not the pad.. Realistically how often should we ...

Greater than 50% of patients with esophageal carcinoma are found to be incurable at the time of diagnosis, leaving only palliative options. Self-expanding metal stents (SEMs) are effective for relieving symptoms and complications associated with esophageal carcinoma and improving quality of life. We undertook a retrospective analysis to evaluate the experience of palliative esophageal stenting for symptomatic malignant dysphagia in our institution over a period of 7 years. Between January 1999 and January 2006, 126 patients who received SEMs for malignant dysphagia were identified using an upper gastrointestinal specialist nurse clinician database. Data were obtained from patient case notes, endoscopy, histopathology, radiology, and external agency databases. Of the 126 identified, 36 patients were excluded from the analysis. A number of variables including age, sex, presenting complaints, type of stent, indications of stenting, success or failure of stent insertion, ...

To conclude our series on key areas of the new contract, Dr Melanie Wynne-Jones looks at the proposals on premises and staff. The options on your premises. The contract promises to encourage the provision of modern primary care premises, with a new degree of flexibility that will maintain GP investment options and provide funding parity. These include:. · Grants to meet mortgage deficit costs - if GPs cannot afford to move because their mortgage exceeds the potential sale price of the surgery, primary care organisations will be allowed to make up the difference. This appears to be discretionary and of little help to GPs who have shouldered negative equity themselves.. · Grants from the PCO to meet mortgage redemption costs - again, apparently not guaranteed.. · Allowing PCOs to take an option on land - so that prime sites are not lost while PCOs deliberate.. · Cost-rent payments for GPs buying small practices so they can match the price the ...
GP premises problems in Avon could be eased by an injection of less than £2 million a year in revenue funding, a report by the LMC has concluded.. The paper argues that a return to the traditional notional rent route where GPs borrowed the capital to finance premises was far more flexible than the private finance initiative or NHS LIFT.. Steve Mercer, Avon LMC chief executive, said: We believe there is a very sensible structure that can be developed at a modest cost to enhance or tweak the GP estate. It is being blocked because of a blockage in the central funding system, because of this constant confusion between capital funding and revenue funding.. The LMC estimated that extra capacity of around 25 new treatment room and diagnostic suites, at a cost of £20 million in capital funding, would ease premises problems in Avon.. If the revenue funding was made available, these premises could be on line within three years, the LMC said. ...
