Embracing the future for emergency nurse practitioners and specialty practice: Implications for research, clinical practice, education, and health policy.
These processes provide a future-oriented model that promotes advancement of the NP profession through provision of new NP specialty designations as they emerge to meet changing health care system needs.
A novel use of telemedicine during a hospital mass casualty drill
During a mass casualty disaster drill at NewYork-Presbyterian’s Lower Manhattan Hospital in April 2019, the Emergency Department (ED) used telemedicine to see low-acuity ‘walking wounded’ patients.
Barriers to the Implementation of Telehealth in Rural Communities and Potential Solutions
A detailed review was created to show the barriers and interventions of implementing a telehealth program in a rural area and found the top six categories of barriers and their accompanying interventions encompassed technology, education, health systems, finances, privacy, and cultural considerations.
Lessons learned from an evaluation of referrals to the emergency department
Whether patterns of potentially unnecessary referrals from either primary care physicians (PCPs) or urgent care centers (UCCs) can be identified will be identified to reduce ED visits by patients who could be treated elsewhere and further reduce potentially unnecessary visits to the ED.
Telehealth in emergency medicine: A consensus conference to map the intersection of telehealth and emergency medicine
Telehealth has the potential to significantly change the specialty of emergency medicine (EM) and has rapidly expanded in EM during the COVID pandemic; however, it is unclear how EM should intersect
Effects of fast track emergency care on efficiency and risk prevention of emergency treatment in patients with acute cerebral infarction
Fast track emergency care delivers better effects, improving efficiency levels and effects of emergency treatment in patients with acute cerebral infarction, and these patients enjoy a significantly higher quality of survival and are more likely to express satisfaction.
Efficiency measures of emergency departments: an Italian systematic literature review
The aim of this study is to identify an organisational model or guidelines that can be implemented in EDs to fill inefficiencies and ensure access optimal treatment both in terms of resources and timing.
Dalbavancin Use in the Emergency Department Setting
The results suggest that patients may be safely administered DBV in an ED setting, with telehealth follow-up, and providing structured patient selection criteria is an effective method of assisting ED providers in selecting appropriate DBV candidates to limit potential recurrences and readmissions.


Nurses Leading the Transformation of Patient Care Through Telehealth
