1. Nurse perspectives of nurse-sensitive indicators for positive patient outcomes: A Delphi study
Maree Steel., Philippa Seaton et al.
Collegian, 2021-04-01, 28(2), 145-156
Recent literature relating specifically to nurse-sensitive indicators has leaned towards an emphasis upon negative outcomes, such as ‘missed care’, ‘delayed care’, ‘failure to rescue’ or a reduction in adverse events rather than focus on nursing activities that lead to positive outcomes. In addition, little is known about nurse perspectives of nurse-sensitive indicators for positive patient outcomes.
2. Nursing presence during death: An end-of-life simulation created by students and faculty
Roberts, Benjamin., Cotter, Valerie T. et al.

Nursing curricula often lack end-of-life (EOL) care training, particularly regarding the nursing skill of “being present.” Collaboration between students and faculty in curriculum design is rare but may effectively help fill the curriculum gaps in EOL care.
3. To transfer or not to transfer: Aged care nurses’ decision-making in transferring residents to the emergency department
Apil Gurung., Marguerite Claire Sendall & Alan Barnard
Collegian, 2021-04-01, 28(2), 162-170
Nurses are key decision makers in residential aged care facilities and play a significant role in the transfer of residents from residential aged care facilities to emergency departments. There is scant literature about the role of nurses in the transfer decision-making process.
4. Reflections on implementing an evidence-based educational intervention in residential aged care

This paper reports the implementation of a specifically designed educational intervention, the Tri-focal Education Program (TEP).
5. Managing workplace change: Intergenerational perspectives from Victorian public hospital nurses

It is important to understand nurse experiences and develop strategies to retaining older nurses in the workforce. What are the experiences of change management, career intentions, learning and development, and wellbeing across different generations of Victorian public health nurses?

6. Telehealth Billing for Nurse Practitioners During COVID-19: Policy Updates
Snyder, Elizabeth Faye & Kerns, Lisa.
Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 2021-03-01, 17(3), 258-263
Telehealth is a growing valuable strategy to assist patients accessing needed care when unable to get to a health care setting for one of several reasons. During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic of 2020, many health care practices were forced to implement telehealth services to meet patient and practice needs.
7. Is Telehealth Here to Stay?
Gardenier, Donald., Ballard-Hernandez, Jennifer & O'Donnell, Margaret
Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 2021-03-01, 17(3), 265-266
Pandemic-related mandates to socially distance have pushed telehealth into new sectors of the health care sphere, and most of us have now had telehealth experience, both as providers and maybe also as patients. Will, as the saying goes, the necessity of the pandemic become the mother of invention?
8. The Utility of CardioMEMS, a Wireless Hemodynamic Monitoring System in Reducing Heart Failure Related Hospital Readmissions
Joshi, Rosha & Nair, Ajith
Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 2021-03-01, 17(3), 267-272
The purpose of this article is to inform nurse practitioners and other healthcare professionals regarding the utilization of CardioMEMs, a wireless pulmonary artery pressure monitoring device, in reducing heart failure-related hospital readmission rates. This article will briefly explain how CardioMEMs also helps to reduce the risk of Covid-19 in patients with heart failure.
9. Connecting Kids to Care: Developing a School-Based Telehealth Program
Garber, Kelli., Wells, Elana et al.
Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 2021-03-01, 17(3), 273-278
Using a structured framework for program development is essential to successful implementation when connecting school-age children to care through a school-based telehealth program. The Telehealth Service Implementation Model provides a robust structure with requisite components to develop and implement a successful school-based telehealth program.

13. Coronavirus: Ingredient in Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine behind allergic reactions discovered
Newshub – 8 April 2021
A study in March suggested anaphylaxis was far more common with mRNA vaccines - like those made by Pfizer and US company Moderna - than those based on older technology, but still nowhere near as dangerous as COVID-19 itself. Now scientists think they've worked out what's causing it - polyethylene glycol, or PEG.
