Time for a change? The process of lengthening booking intervals in general practice. (1/500)

Longer booking intervals between appointments in general practice are generally seen as 'a good thing', and have a strong 'evidence base' to support them. Changing to longer booking intervals is regarded as a pipe dream by many general practitioners (GPs). This paper reports the process and outcomes of a change to longer booking intervals in one practice, identifies the key elements of the change, and examines lessons learned for the practice, to help other practices to do similarly. The most important factor in bringing about change was the influence of facilitation by outside parties; first, by management consultants who identified solutions to the practice's problems, and secondly, by recruitment to a research study. Other outside influences were an awareness of the success of other practices in changing to 10-minute booking intervals, and the increasing 'evidence base' to support such change. Internal influences on the process were a desire to change as a result a perception that the practice was under-performing, and the stress associated with this. As a result of the change, the number of doctor consultations fell and the number of nurse consultations rose, fewer patients reconsulted, and marginal improvements were reported on doctor and patient satisfaction. Other practices may benefit from such change; the use of management consultants as facilitators may instigate such change.  (+info)

Randomized controlled trial of teaching practice nurses to carry out structured assessments of patients receiving depot antipsychotic injections. (2/500)

BACKGROUND: A third of patients with schizophrenia are out of contact with secondary services. Many of these patients receive maintenance medication as depot antipsychotics from practice nurses, most of whom have negligible training in mental health. AIM: To examine the impact of a structured assessment on the process of care and clinical status of schizophrenia patients by practice nurses who received a one-day training course. METHOD: All identified patients were randomly allocated to structured assessments and outcome, measured by the number of assessments and the changes in care recorded in primary care notes. A comprehensive assessment of clinical and social functioning and level of unmet need in intervention and control patients was carried out after one year by an independent researcher. RESULTS: A high rate of consultation and clinical need in this patient group was demonstrated. Practice nurses were more diligent in carrying out assessments than general practitioners (GPs), but there was no impact on treatment patterns or clinical outcome. CONCLUSIONS: Structured assessments by practice nurses are feasible with this patient group, but training, targeted at both nurses and GPs, is needed if this intervention is to translate into health gain.  (+info)

Attitudes toward cost-containment features of managed care: differences among patient subgroups. (3/500)

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the extent to which personal characteristics and circumstances affect attitudes toward cost-containment aspects of managed care. STUDY DESIGN: A national probability sample component of the 1994 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation National Access to Care Survey. METHODS: Telephone and in-person survey follow-up of 3480 persons who completed the 1993 National Health Interview Survey. Findings on respondents' attitudes toward three principal cost-saving features of managed care are reported. These features are choosing physicians from insurance company lists (LIST), accessing specialists through referrals only (SPECIALIST), and seeing a nurse sometimes instead of a physician (NURSE). Data were categorized and analyzed by different population subgroups. RESULTS: Respondents were divided almost equally in terms of how much they minded healthcare features of managed care, with approximately one third minding a lot, one third minding a little, and one third minding not at all. However, slightly more people minded LIST (42%) and NURSE (39%) features a lot. The respondent subgroups with the lowest proportion "minding a lot" were the uninsured poor and those already in managed care. Those groups minding the most were the elderly, those in fee-for-service plans, persons in poor health, and those with ischemic heart disease. CONCLUSIONS: Acceptance of managed care cost-containment features varies by consumer characteristics. Those who have the most to gain financially by cost-containment features and the least to lose in terms of their access to care mind the managed care features the least. Persons who object most strongly are those who are not financially constrained and who are in poor health.  (+info)

Randomized trial of nurse-assisted strategies for smoking cessation in primary care. (4/500)

BACKGROUND: Brief advice to stop smoking from general practitioners (GPs) has been repeatedly shown to increase smoking cessation by a small, but measurable amount. Some studies have suggested that adding more intensive interventions to brief advice may increase its effectiveness, but it is unclear whether this is true in general practice. AIMS: To determine whether brief advice from a doctor together with counselling and follow-up from a trained practice nurse is more effective than brief advice alone in helping people to stop smoking. METHODS: The design was a randomized controlled trial. Four hundred and ninety-seven general practice patients aged older than 18 years and smoking at least one cigarette per day in six general practices in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, and Buckinghamshire were randomized to one of two interventions: brief verbal or written advice from a GP plus extended counselling and follow-up from a trained practice nurse; brief advice from a GP alone. The primary outcome was sustained abstinence from smoking at three and 12 months. A secondary outcome was forward movement in the stages of change cycle. RESULTS: The proportion showing sustained abstinence was 3.6% in the extended counselling group, and 4.4% in the brief advice group (difference = -0.8%; 95% confidence interval = -4.3% to 2.6%). Seventy-four (30%) of those randomized to extended counselling actually took up this offer. No significant progression in stages of change was detected between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: In unselected general practice patients who smoke, brief advice from a GP combined with intensive intervention and follow-up by a practice nurse is no more effective than brief advice alone.  (+info)

Trained nurses can obtain satisfactory bone marrow aspirates and trephine biopsies. (5/500)

AIMS: To assess the feasibility of training nurse practitioners to perform bone marrow aspiration and trephine biopsy, and to compare the quality of these samples with those obtained by medical staff. METHODS: A retrospective audit was undertaken of nurse practitioner and medical staff performance in bone marrow procedures in a busy haematology day unit. RESULTS: Nurse practitioners fared favourably in comparison with medical staff in performing bone marrow trephine biopsies, with mean biopsy lengths of 11 mm and 10.7 mm respectively. However, only 78% of the smears obtained by the nurses were judged technically satisfactory, compared with 91% prepared by doctors. This discrepancy was thought to be due largely to the quality of slide spreading. CONCLUSIONS: With motivated staff and a structured educational and training programme it is possible for nurse practitioners to perform the techniques of bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, and obtain specimens of satisfactory quality, thus improving efficiency of the haematology day unit and increasing quality of patient care.  (+info)

Anxiety amongst women with mild dyskaryosis: costs of an educational intervention. (6/500)

BACKGROUND: A randomized controlled trial in primary care investigated whether a structured educational intervention had an impact on the psychological morbidity associated with a 6-month period of surveillance for mild dyskaryosis. In the context of high levels of sustained distress, and few differences in terms of objective measures of anxiety, the intervention led to a greater proportion of women who were comfortable with a 6-month interval before their next smear test. OBJECTIVE. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the implications to general practices and the NHS, in terms of both costs and numbers of patient contacts, of a change from current policy to one of actively inviting all women with mild dyskaryosis to consult the practice nurse for the intervention. METHODS: We conducted a pragmatic, cluster-randomized controlled trial, comparing the intervention with standard care. The setting was general practices in Avon and South Glamorgan, UK. The subjects were women under surveillance following their first ever mildly dyskaryotic cervical smear result. The main outcome measures were as follows. Costs were reported according to randomization group, from the viewpoint of general practices and the NHS. The main elements which were costed were those attributable to production of the package and training in its use, and the costs of consultations subsequent to the woman receiving her smear test result. In addition, since in practice the intervention might be applied in different circumstances to those prevailing in the trial, a sensitivity analysis was performed to assess the costs of the educational package as realistically as possible. RESULTS: Almost twice as many women in the intervention group compared with the control group visited their practice to discuss their result. From the perspective of the practices, a change from current policy to the intervention policy led to potential (negligible) savings of around pound sterling 3.50 per partner per year. From the NHS perspective, the intervention would lead to slightly increased costs of between pound sterling 1000 and pound sterling 2500 per year for an area performing 60000 tests per year. CONCLUSIONS: It is both feasible and acceptable for practice nurses to deliver the educational package. Moreover, from the perspective of a practice, the policy is effectively cost-neutral. The main implication for general practices is the change in the pattern of care provided: fewer women consulted their GP about their smear result and many more, following active encouragement, consulted the practice nurse.  (+info)

Problem Knowledge Couplers: reengineering evidence-based medicine through interdisciplinary development, decision support, and research. (7/500)

The rapid growth of medical knowledge is creating a demand for new ways of providing information in support of evidence-based medical practice. Problem Knowledge Couplers are a clinical decision support software tool that offer a new approach to this growing problem. Couplers are developed through a collaboration among clinicians, informaticians, and librarians. They recognize that functionality must be predicated upon combining unique patient information, gleaned through relevant structured question sets, with the appropriate knowledge found in the world's peer-reviewed medical literature. Two pilot studies indicate that couplers can meet the gold standards of decision making within both a primary care and a specialty practice. Issues remain about how to best integrate Problem Knowledge Couplers into clinical practice and whether large-scale outcomes research will support the findings of pilot studies. However, Problem Knowledge Couplers represent a promising approach that might portend a new model for health care delivery in the next millennium.  (+info)

Nurse-mediated serum cholesterol reduction and health locus of control--a device for targeting health promotion? (8/500)

Varying intensities of nurse-mediated health education advice were administered to subjects over a three-month period. Mean serum total cholesterol was calculated for each group at the outset and completion of the study. A multidimensional health locus of control (MHLC) scales questionnaire was self-completed by subjects at the outset. A highly significant association between internality and reduction in serum total cholesterol in the high-intensity intervention group was observed. The completion of a MHLC scale questionnaire may assist health professionals in identifying which subjects may most benefit from high-intensity health education advice when raised serum total cholesterol is prevalent.  (+info)

The healthcare industry has changed drastically and quickly, and one profession has risen in importance along with these changes. Nurse practitioners fill the gaps left as the number of primary care physicians has decreased. These professionals offer patients individualized and holistic care. Nurse practitioners focus on preventative health care, although they can also diagnose illness, prescribe medicine, and treat chronic conditions. As healthcare continues to evolve, the importance of nurse practitioners will continue to grow.. ...
by Julia Quinn-Szcesuil , Nov 12, 2017 , Blog, Nursing Associations, Nursing Careers , 0 comments. This week, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners is highlighting all the work nurse practitioners (NPs) do with National Nurse Practitioner Week.. The week kicks off today and runs through November 18 and honors the work NPs do both on the job and as ambassadors for the nursing profession.. Minority Nurse caught up with Dr. Scharmaine L. Baker, FNP, FAANP, FAAN, CEO at Advanced Clinical Consultants, to talk about the role of a nurse practitioner. After Hurricane Katrina, Bakers New Orleans patient caseload swelled from 100 to 500 in three months. With a critical shortage of health care facilities and providers, Bakers skills as an NP not only saved her patients, but also clearly showed how invaluable her thorough NP training is.. National Nurse Practitioner Week, says Baker, is a way to give nurse practitioners the recognition they often dont receive. National Nurse Practitioner Week ...

One of the most common requests that I get this time of year is for a doctor or a service to ask for hospital support for a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. In each instance, you have to do an analysis to determine if adding an NP or PA for inpatient management is financially worth it. In Ohio, although PAs and NPs have different training, they have similar scopes of practice and are often used interchangeably. So in this post, when I refer to nurse practitioners, it can also mean physician assistants.. In most situations, you want to ensure that by using an NP, that you are at least breaking even with the cost of the NP by the revenue generated by the NP. In Ohio, NPs can write prescriptions and bill independently. In the hospital, there are two ways that NPs can provide care with regular daily visits. (1) They can do a shared visit so that they do part of the encounter and documentation and the physician does part of the encounter and also does part of the documentation - in this ...
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. Noticeable heterogeneity was observed between the studies on almost all outcomes. Although differences between ...

Near-future possible insurance reform may just lead to increased access for healthcare. However, any future shortage in the medical professions will surely limit this access. This is specifically true when it comes to cancer care since it is predicted that a shortage of qualified well-trained oncology care professionals will occur in conjunction with an ever-increasing older population. Medical professionals specializing in oncology will be in great demand in order to provide extended treatments that would help to increase cancer survivorship. Therefore, new strategies have to be employed for the delivery of oncology care services by increasing the roles of professional individuals, who are not physicians, a great example being a nurse practitioner. Developing well-trained advance oncology nurse practitioners is vitally important not only to meet a current need but all future needs facing a boulder growing US population. A great deal of effort in study has been developed by the Oncology Nursing ...

N2 - The evolving role of nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) in the United States continues to progress. NP and PA responsibilities have expanded from primary care practices to medical and surgical specialties.

The purpose of this investigation was to develop an instrument to test the theory of reasoned action (Fishbein & Ajzen, 1975) in a new behavioral domain the health promotive behaviors of geriatric nurse practitioners (GNPs). The two behavioral categories included in the study were health assessment and health teaching, each with its individual index of actions. A questionnaire was developed to examine the beliefs of a sample of 200 certified geriatric nurse practitioners and to test the relationships of the theoretical model. Names of the subjects were randomly selected from the American Nurses Association 1989 list of certified GNPs. Ninety-four returned questionnaires were included in the data analyses. Data analysis included frequency of demographic attributes, correlation, stepwise multiple regression, and factor analysis. Estimation of validity and reliability of the instrument were sufficient to warrant reuse of the instrument. As a homogeneous group, the geriatric nurse practitioners shared

Abstract: Purpose: To determine the clinical practice characteristics of gerontological nurse practitioners (GNPs) in the United States and ascertain whether length of employment, geographic region of practice, work setting, and educational preparation influence GNPs delivery of advanced clinical services and clinical procedures. Data sources: The Gerontological Nurse Practitioner Practice Profile was mailed to a stratified random sample of 1000 GNPs certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Conclusions: Despite the growing demands for GNPs, of the 472 GNPs who responded to the survey, only half were working full-time as a GNP. Although the role was established over 30 years ago, 56% of the respondents indicated that they were the first GNP in the position. There was a statistically significant positive relationship between being the first GNP in his or her practice and the percent of primarily medical advanced clinical services performed. GNPs who worked in multiple clinical ...
Background : Supervision forms an integral part of psychiatric nursing. The value of clinical supervision has been demonstrated widely in research.

Ive had several nurse practitioners tell me they will only work in independent practice states. That is, states whose scope of practice laws dont require nurse practitioners to be supervised by or collaborate with a physician. While I understand the position of these NPs, they are capable of treating patients without oversight, I have to wonder - does working in an independent practice state actually change what a nurse practitioners day-to-day job looks like?. Scope of practice laws govern the way nurse practitioners work. They outline what services theyre allowed to provide and how NPs are allowed to prescribe. In most states, these regulations specify that a certain amount of physician oversight is required for an NP to practice, prescribe, or both. Until recently, for example, nurse practitioners in Florida were not permitted to prescribe certain controlled substances. In contrast, NPs practicing in states like New Mexico are allowed to work completely free of physician oversight. Most ...
