Nurses Central To Getting Diabetes Care Off To A Better Start

Guidelines in the UK, US, Australia and Europe recommend early adoption of insulin treatment to improve long-term health outcomes and reduce complications such as damage to the eyes, kidney and nerves -- but clinical barriers often delay this.

A study at 74 primary health clinics across Australia led by Professor John Furler, has found a new model of healthcare has made a dramatic difference to patient uptake of insulin treatment.

Their findings, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), highlight the benefits of the 'Stepping Up' program, in which nurses lead insulin treatment initiation among patients within the practice as a part of routine care.

Seventy percent of patients at clinics trialling the program began treatment, compared to just 22% at clinics taking a traditional approach to diabetes management -- with no additional demands on resources.

Nurses Explain Why Certification Matters

The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) joins with hospitals and other healthcare groups across the country Sunday, March 19, to celebrate and recognize the essential work of certified nurses as part of Certified Nurses Day.

Patient Safety Awareness Week: Nurse Anesthetists Encourage Patients To Learn About Pain Management Options Available During And After Surgery

The opioid crisis is one of the largest challenges facing today’s healthcare professionals and the patients for whom they care. For the National Patient Safety Foundation’s Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 12-18, 2017, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) across the country are urging surgical, obstetric, and chronic pain patients to join with their anesthesia professionals to learn about the risks and benefits of the pain relief options available to them, which may include opioid and non-opioid treatments.

“Partnering with your CRNA to develop your plan for anesthesia and pain relief helps to optimize use of non-opioid drugs and local anesthesia techniques to minimize or eliminate the need for opioids,” said Cheryl Nimmo, DNP, MSHSA, CRNA, president of the 50,000-member American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and P
