ABSTRACT

The perinatal period is a high risk for onset and relapse of mental health problems. The COVID-19 pandemic is a particularly stressful occurrence with reported negative impacts on perinatal mental health, hence the need to understand these impacts on pregnant and post-partum childbearing women and people, and prioritise interventions to alleviate them. This is the first of two articles.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The study aims to evaluate the motor, non-motor, cognitive and psychiatric conditions of our patients diagnosed with Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (IPD) before and after the COVID-19 pandemic and to investigate the effect of the pandemic on male and female genders. Methods: Ninety patients were included in the study. Demographic data such as age, gender, and duration of disease, type of disease of the patients were recorded. Patients were then divided into 2 groups: male and female. Movement disorders of both groups before the pandemic, disease stage determined by H&Y and UPDRS at the admission and after the pandemic, Levodopa equivalent dose used were recorded and all patients were surveyed to evaluate their motor, non-motor, cognitive, and psychiatric conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on male and female genders were investigated. Results: Of the patients, 40 were male and 50 were female. Daytime drowsiness, weakness, impaired walking, constipation, sleep disorders, and inability to turn in the bed worsened compared to the period before the pandemic. Yet, of the psychiatric symptoms, boredom, unhappiness, anhedonia, irritability, and tension were found to increase during the pandemic. There was a statistically significant difference in UPDRS, H&Y and disease stages before and after the COVID-19 pandemic in both groups, especially in the female group (p<0.05). Conclusion: Although it was more pronounced in female patients with IPD diagnosis, both motor and non-motor symptoms were found to worsen during the COVID-19 pandemic in both groups.

ABSTRACT

The article discusses the key role played by respiratory therapists in ensuring the proper use of supplemental oxygen therapy for the treatment of respiratory illnesses like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and reduction of burden of patients on the health care system. Also cited are how the COVID-19 pandemic posed as barrier on the training of new oxygen therapy users, and how the high cost of said therapy adversely affect access to said treatment modality.

ABSTRACT

Background: Heart failure readmissions are common, though some are preventable through evidence-based management. Local Problem: Despite outperforming national benchmarks for 30-day readmissions, compliance with an evidence-based institutional heart failure management pathway was inconsistent. The purpose of this project was to reduce 30-day heart failure readmission rates through an educational intervention and an electronic health record (EHR) redesign. Methods: The cardiac services nursing leadership team conducted an education and documentation needs assessment to identify knowledge gaps and practical barriers to effective utilization of evidence-based interventions for heart failure management. Interventions: This intervention included an Advanced Cardiovascular Education (ACE) Academy and an EHR workflow redesign for clinical and supportive nursing staff. Results: The 30-day heart failure readmission rates reduced immediately following the intervention, and rates continued to decrease over a 3-year follow-up. Conclusions: Even among hospitals outperforming national benchmarks, 30-day heart failure readmissions can be reduced and sustained with enhanced education and EHR redesign.

ABSTRACT

Nearly 30% of people with a mental health disorder will also have a substance use disorder at some point in their lives. Despite widespread evidence of the complex interactions between mental health and substance use and the value of integrated treatment, the majority of people with concurrent disorders do not receive treatment that addresses both conditions. Psychologists are ideally suited to bridge this gap in care, but this will not be without challenges. Psychologists possess extensive skills in identifying, diagnosing, and treating mental health disorders, which are transferrable to substance use disorders. Psychologists also have formal training in supervision and consultation and thus can supervise or act as consultants for other professionals in treating concurrent disorders. They have expertise in program development, evaluation, and research and can lead projects to integrate mental health and substance use services. Barriers to psychologists bridging this gap center on siloes in our healthcare system, the lack of training for psychologists to develop competency and confidence in substance use disorder diagnosis and treatment, misperceptions about how individuals with substance use disorders respond to psychological treatment, as well as system barriers. Overcoming these barriers comes with clear benefits and will require changes to professional training, clinical practice, and research on evidence-based treatments for concurrent disorders. Agencies across Canada are calling for action to ensure individuals with concurrent disorders receive the integrated services they require. Being at the leading edge of this change offers an important opportunity for psychologists. Près de 30 % des personnes présentant un trouble de santé mentale auront aussi un trouble lié à la consommation d'une substance au cours de leur vie. Malgré les preuves répandues au sujet des interactions complexes entre la santé mentale et la consommation d'une substance et de la valeur d'un traitement intégré, la majorité des gens ayant des troubles concomitants ne reçoivent pas de traitement simultané pour les deux conditions. Les psychologues sont les mieux placés pour combler cette lacune, mais cela ne se fera pas sans difficulté. Ils possèdent de vastes compétences pour cerner, diagnostiquer et traiter les troubles de santé mentale, qui sont transférables aux troubles liés à la consommation de substances. Ils ont reçu une formation en supervision et en consultation, ce qui leur permet de superviser ou de conseiller d'autres professionnels au sujet du traitement de troubles concomitants. Les psychologues possèdent une expertise en matière de développement de programmes, d'évaluation et de recherche, et ils peuvent diriger des projets visant à intégrer des services en santé mentale et des services concernant la consommation de substances. Les obstacles au règlement des lacunes par les psychologues sont attribuables au travail en vase clos au sein de notre système de santé, au manque de formation qui permettrait aux psychologues d'acquérir les compétences et la confiance requises pour diagnostiquer et traiter les troubles liés à la consommation de substances, à la méconnaissance de la réponse des personnes ayant de tels troubles aux traitements psychologiques, ainsi qu'à divers obstacles du système. Surmonter ces obstacles apportera des avantages nets et nécessitera des changements à la formation professionnelle, à la pratique clinique et à la recherche sur les traitements fondés sur des preuves pour les troubles concomitants. Des organismes partout au Canada demandent que des mesures soient prises pour veiller à ce que les personnes présentant des troubles concomitants reçoivent les services intégrés dont elles ont besoin. Se positionner à la tête de ce changement constitue une occasion importante pour les psychologues.

ABSTRACT

Nurse leaders are discovering a "new normal." In other words, we have normalized the discomfort we find ourselves in because of the pandemic and the disruptions it has caused. Many of us are contemplating how we to lead going forward. How do we inspire exhausted, frustrated, and overworked people? How do we lead with authenticity when so many of our efforts seem to miss the mark or are rejected as not actually solving the problem? This article offers a perspective on these questions and more, providing possible ways nurse leaders can embrace feedback and turn toxic positivity into authentic positivity.
