The effectiveness of high fidelity simulation on medical-surgical registered nurses' ability to recognise and respond to clinical emergencies.
TLDR
The ability to respond in a systematic way, handover to the emergency team and airway management were identified as the skills most improved during patient emergencies following simulation. Expand
Cardiovascular risk in early bereavement: a literature review and proposed mechanisms.
TLDR
The findings from this review provide insight into the impact of early bereavement on health and the recognition that bereavement is associated with increased cardiac risk should provide an impetus for individuals to act on cardiac symptoms by seeking medical advice and for health care providers to monitor such individuals more closely. Expand
Physiological correlates of bereavement and the impact of bereavement interventions
TLDR
It is suggested that bereavement interventions have the potential to be of value in instances where sleep disturbance becomes a prolonged feature of complicated grief, but have limited efficacy in maintaining immune function in the normal course of bereavement. Expand
Nurse practitioner prescribing practice in Australia
TLDR
The results from this study suggest that fewer Australian NPs prescribe than do NPs in the United States, and those who do prescribe do so less frequently. Expand
Designing and implementing full immersion simulation as a research tool.
TLDR
A new scenario design template was devised to develop two standardised simulated clinical scenarios for the evaluation of a new assessment framework for emergency nurses, which provide an evidence-informed guide to scenario development for future clinical research studies. Expand
A scoping review of what is known of the physical health of adults with autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
From the findings, it can be stated with confidence that people with ASD have a high rate of comorbidity and increased risk for chronic disease. Expand
Nurse practitioner provision of patient education related to medicine
TLDR
It is suggested that NPs and NP candidates are providing some of their clients with medicine information and using CMI leaflets in some prescribing consultations. Expand
The impact structured patient assessment frameworks have on patient care: an integrative review.
TLDR
Structured patient assessment frameworks enhance clinician performance of patient assessment and hold the potential to improve patient care and outcomes; however, further research is required to address these evidence gaps, particularly in nursing. Expand
Nurse practitioner prescribing practices: the most frequently prescribed medications.
TLDR
The finding that nurse practitioners prescribing patterns are similar to other non-nurse practitioner prescribers in Australia highlights the potential for service providers to introduce new models of care that are Nurse Practitioner lead. Expand
Inflammatory and thrombotic changes in early bereavement: a prospective evaluation
TLDR
Levels of neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, platelet count, platelets/monocyte granulocytes and von Willebrand factor were lower in bereaved at 6 months compared to acutely and levels of inflammatory and prothrombotic changes were lower than expected. Expand
