ABSTRACT

Following are the s from the top three research posters. 1st Place: The Effect of the Built Environment on OR Personnel and Their Perception of Patients' Surgical Experiences: A Phenomenological Comparative Study Rosemary B. Field, MS, APRN-AOCNS;Charika Burns, MSN, RN, CNOR;Linda M. Soos, BSN, RN, CNOR;MaryBeth Houlahan, BSN, RN, CNOR;Christian N. Burchill, PhD, MSN, RN, CEN The increased interest in understanding all aspects of the patient experience has led researchers to study the effect of healthcare facilities' aesthetic environment on patient outcome and experience. Future studies should more directly explore the impact of the built OR environment on staff productivity and teamwork. 2nd Place: A Single-Site Research Study on the Impact of Meditation on the Stress of Operating Room Personnel During COVID-19 Rachel Miller Abanilla, MSN, RN, CNOR, NPD-BC;Stephenie Wright, BSN, RN, CNOR;Selena Banda, CST The COVID-19 pandemic has caused increased stress for healthcare providers. Analysis was performed to see a change in the participants' scores in the SOS-S, heart rate, and blood pressure pre- and post- to test the impact of meditation to stress. The study provided information on the stress level of OR staff during the COVID-19 pandemic and contributed to the evidence of the impact of meditation to stress. 3rd Place: A Non-Pharmaceutical Approach to Preoperative Anxiety Kerri-Lynn Wallace, DNP, FNP-C;Carrie Lee Gardner, PhD, DNP, FNP-BC;Shellye Vardaman, PhD, RN-BC, NEA-BC, CNE Purpose: The purpose of this project was to evaluate the impact of lavender aromatherapy and music therapy (MT) on preoperative anxiety in adult surgical patients.

ABSTRACT

In the twenty-first century, central banks' ability to conduct monetary policy through conventional means (namely, changes to interest rates) has proven limited, forcing central banks to resort to novel and controversial tools to combat economic downturns. In March 2020, when economic activity in the United States came to a screeching halt, the Fed was forced to test out its post-2008 crisis-response toolkit for the first time. In concert with Congress and the Department of the Treasury, the Fed would make more than $454 billion available to financial and nonfinancial businesses, states, and municipalities. Miraculously, leveraging its emergency powers under section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act, the Fed would loosen calcifying credit markets across the economy and restore the functioning of the financial system. Almost as quickly as the Fed mounted its heroic response, skepticism surrounding the intervention permeated academic and policy circles alike. With the benefit of hindsight, however, this Note aims to problematize some of the qualms and critiques surrounding the Fed's actions in 2020.

ABSTRACT

JFSR [Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion] and CoLaboratory will begin curating related information from the organization's history, including retrospective contributions such as roundtables, lists of editors and board members from the very beginning, etc." Peter Sabo and Rhiannon Graybill's article, "The Bible and Margaret Atwood's The Testaments," continues the twin themes of misogyny and reimaginings in examining how Atwood's novel subversively draws upon the Bible to suggest the liberatory power of infinite interpretations in rewriting stories replete with "misogynist representations of gender, violence, and patriarchy," and whether such an approach is successful (132). Haruka Umetsu Cho takes us to Japan in her analysis of writings from the 1970s by female Japanese Christians, who simultaneously relocate-an interpretive act-"the oppression of women in the church within the larger issues of Japanese colonial legacy" (185) and are blinded by reflection on race, bringing us full circle to the deep connections between colonization and racism also drawn in several of the reflections in the roundtable.

ABSTRACT

The US Supreme Court may soon strike down its landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade, ending constitutional protections for abortion, according to a draft decision leaked to Politico. The ruling would mean that states can decide whether and how to restrict abortion--or ban it outright. Nearly two dozen Republican-led states are expected to issue immediate bans, 13 of which have "trigger laws" on the books that would automatically kick in once the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. Abortion will probably remain legal in Democrat strongholds. At least a dozen states, including California, have passed laws protecting access. Here, how Roe v. Wade could galvanize efforts to restrict access in Canada.

ABSTRACT

The founding principles of honor, academic distinction, and spiritual growth help build a strong sense of community. [...]teaching at a boarding school is a transformative experience for students rooted in self-discovery, which I fully take advantage of through programs like the Washington program. [...]you can create authentic experiences outside the classroom. [...]we have a Harkness discussion about Henrietta Lacks, an African American woman treated in the 1950s for cervical cancer. Relying on organizations such as the National Sci- ence Teaching Association (NSTA) and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) for professional development helped me to expand my knowledge and skills.

ABSTRACT

Many of them shared stories about experiences they or their friends or family had with the health care system, and I was able to tie those stories back to one of the lab disciplines. The youth I interacted with were very keen to learn about laboratory science, and they could already draw parallels to concepts they had learned about in their science classes, such as different blood cell types, or the ABO blood group system. A moment that stands out is when one student told me a blood bank joke! I didn't know it was going to be a joke at fi st, but then caught on as the story unfolded.

ABSTRACT

Just as in the film, far too many in America and across the world have demonstrated a homicidal rejection of truth and scientific fact in favor of unquestioning allegiance to a fascistic demagoguery rooted in cultish devotion to Donald Trump, the embrace of white supremacy, and an unwillingness to care for or protect the lives and health of others. The past two years have been the most depressing and distressing of my adult life, chiefly because they have exposed how incredibly selfish, immoral, and ignorant wide swaths of the human population are. Don't Look Up magnifies and lampoons these tendencies, as the human race is unable to band together in collective self-interest to deflect the oncoming comet that at the end of the film, impacts Earth and eliminates all life on the planet.

ABSTRACT

The featured article, How California School Principals and Teachers Engage Academic Optimism to Maximize Equity in Student Learning Within Low Socio-Economic Status (SES) Schools, studied the perceptions of 144 TK-8 urban school leaders and their staff on the effects that Academic Optimism has on supporting equitable growth in student learning within ten low SES schools. [...]this level of connection of self-awareness and critical reflection can, the authors posit, narrow the disparity gap between leaders' and educators' expectations and, indirectly, students' learning outcome. [...]this journal would not exist without the support of ICPEL and ICPEL Publications, especially Brad Bizell, who has been an invaluable member of the team.

ABSTRACT

Clearly, the COVID-19 pandemic is a triggering event that would cause many companies to test goodwill for impairment on an interim basis-i.e., before the scheduled annual testing date, said Scott Ehrlich, president of Mind the GAAP, LLC. Because of the overall decline in market values, more reporting units would likely fail the goodwill (impairment test... the fair value) of the reporting unit will be less than its carrying amount. PCAOB News Auditors Obligated to Provide High-Quality Audits during Crisis With the unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19, the PCAOB has issued a staff guide to remind independent auditors of their obligations to follow applicable rules and standards diligently as they complete their audit work. GASB News No Deferral Planned for Interest Rate Reform Standard GASB has said its decision to defer the effective date of some critical accounting standards to ease implementation hurdles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic will not include rules on reference rate reform.

ABSTRACT

OPINION BY A NORTHLAND HEALTH-CARE ASSISTANT April 28, 2022 After 31 years in aged residential care, a caregiver calls for mental health support. Lockdown after lockdown, red zones, a carousel of staff and patients testing positive, constant use of surgical masks, N95s and sanitiser, meals served in residents' rooms, isolation and restricted movements, appointment slots for visitors, distancing. Knowing that we test daily helps them feel safe, as well as giving us caregivers peace of mind that we are not bringing COVID into their home.

ABSTRACT

The Pan American Health Organization and Amnesty International have called on governments to do more to protect health care workers, for example, by distributing simple, accessible information to combat the spread of misinformation. The authors found that the injury rate was higher in rural and remote areas than in urban areas and that a decline in firearm-related injuries occurred over the study period. Out-of-hospital disputes were also an important cause of serious hospital violence (11%). [...]interviewed health care workers expressed an urgent need for legislation, increased security, and training to handle disputes to prevent the violent incidents against health care workers and protect their safety.

ABSTRACT

While anime is not the primary revenue source of the conglomerates that streaming services belong to, Wong details how nonetheless the conglomerates' industry logics shape the conditions of anime's transnational distribution;in the case of queer content, bidding wars, licensing deals, and the imposition of controls on "mature" content lead to the genre's absence, disappearance, or obfuscation on the platform. [...]in "Toward a Filipinx Method: Queer of Color Critique and QTGNC Mobilization in Mark Aguhar's Poetics," M. T. Vallarta explores the possibilities of a "Filipinx method." [...]the panel looks to the present to consider queer media in light of COVID-19 and the possibility for queer digital media studies in the future.
