    Get PDF
    Background: Substance use disorder (SUD) is a disparity affecting nearly 24 million individuals in the U.S., nearly 10% of the total population. Oftentimes, the emergency department (ED) is the only medical care this population receives. There is often a lack of screening for SUD in ED’s, therefore referred care may be limited for these individuals. The National Institute on Drug Abuse Modified Assist (NMASSIST) is an evidence-based tool developed to educate and screen for SUD. This tool can be completed in a timely manner and aid in the recommended referral of care for this select population. Purpose: The purpose of this DNP project was to evaluate clinician knowledge regarding SUD and screening ability in the adult population in an acute ED setting. Methods: A pre/posttest design was utilized to examine changes in clinician knowledge and ability to screen for SUD. An educational module was developed and administered to 15 registered nurses and 12 advanced practice providers/physicians. Clinicians completed a pre/posttest questionnaire prior to and after reviewing the educational module as well as a satisfaction survey. Results: There was a statistically significant increase in clinician knowledge, comfortability, and frequency of screening for SUD (p\u3c0.001) after the implementation of the educational module. Baseline knowledge increased by 87%, comfortability of screening for SUD increased by 100%, and frequency of SUD screening showed an increase of nearly 37%. All clinicians that partook in this project (100%) felt this module was useful, should be recommended to clinicians, and felt the NMASSIST could be utilized in the ED setting. Conclusion: Clinicians demonstrated an increase in knowledge of SUD, increase of screening, and felt more comfortable screening after the implementation of this module

    Get PDF
     Indonesia has various traditional foods, some of which are the result of acculturation with other countries’ foods. Sangga buwana is the Javanese-Dutch influenced cuisine, which became one of the favorite dishes of the sultans of Yogyakarta. Till date, the publication about sangga buwana is still limited. This paper aimed to introduce and spread the knowledge about sangga buwana as the result of food acculturation, focusing on its history, philosophy, how it is prepared, and its nutritional value. The study was carried out through interviews with the experts and literature review. Sangga buwana consists of several components, including choux pastry, ragout, lettuce, boiled egg, Javanese mustard, and pickled vegetables. Sangga buwana itself and every component to prepare it have the meaningful philosophy about God’s creations. It delivers important wishes and meanings to the newlywed couple in royal wedding ceremony. It was only served to the sultan, royal family of Yogyakarta, and their important guests. But nowadays, sangga buwana can be more easily found at restaurants, traditional markets or food festivals in Yogyakarta. The cultural preservation of sangga buwana has been conducted through cultural festivals, cooking workshops, and research development using local ingredients to prepare it which may support food diversificatio

    Aim: The present paper describes the rationale behind the surgical technique and the clinical results of the iso-anatomical, single bundle bone patellar-tendon bone anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Method: Using a second incision on the distal lateral femur an outside-in femoral tunnel is drilled. Guided by a special aiming device it is possible to place the femoral tunnel in the centre of the ACL footprint in every single case. Conclusion: Since every crucial step of the procedure is under visual control, the technique is safe and reliable, which is mirrored by good clinical result

    Engagement of Parents in Child-focused Iinterventions

    Get PDF
    Background: Parent engagement in interventions for their children is considered necessary to the success of many allied health services. Currently, however, the concept of engagement is poorly defined and minimally understood. While literature on engagement is emerging, a coordinated overview of the topic from related disciplines is notably absent. Without this, it is difficult to translate insights of parent engagement into practical strategies for clinicians. The aim of this review is to systematically search the literature to identify factors relevant to parent engagement in child-focused interventions. Methods/Design: This review will follow a systematised literature review procedure, with a focus on comprehensive searching as well as application of quality appraisal and analysis steps. A search of five electronic databases will be undertaken, alongside citation tracking and hand searching of literature. Articles will be screened for relevance in a two-stage process (exclusion by title/abstract and exclusion at full text review), aligned with inclusion and exclusion criteria consistent with the review question. Included literature will be assessed for quality using a tool relevant to the study methods (quantitative or qualitative). Data analysis will include narrative synthesis for quantitative studies, and thematic synthesis for qualitative studies. Discussion: This review will explore literature on parent engagement across related child-focused interventions, to better define the concept of engagement and identify factors which contribute to parents being engaged in the treatment of their children. This information may guide further research on engagement of parents, and support practitioners working to develop interventions that maximally engage parents for optimal child outcomes

    El presente trabajo de investigación, tuvo por objetivo verificar el nivel de percepción y el nivel de conocimiento en torno a la calidad del agua potable, para lo cual se aplicaron talleres inductivos entre los pobladores del distrito de Nueva Cajamarca, 2017. La investigación surgió debido a que esta localidad no se cuenta con el servicio adecuado de saneamiento básico, y ante las evidencias del escaso conocimiento de la población respecto a la calidad del agua potable. Bajo este contexto, y realizada la revisión bibliográfica, se asumió la hipótesis que si se desarrollan talleres inductivos entonces se mejorará significativamente el nivel de percepción y el nivel de conocimiento en torno a la calidad del agua potable, las mismas que fueron consideradas con variables para la presente investigación. En cuanto a la parte metodológica, se tomó como muestra a 41 pobladores los mismos que fueron encuestados antes y después de aplicar los talleres, concluyendo que el nivel de percepción respecto a la calidad del agua potable al iniciar la investigación era del 66% mejorando hasta llegar al 76% luego de aplicar los talleres; el nivel de conocimiento al iniciar la investigación era del 55% mejorando hasta llegar al 73% luego de aplicar los talleres. Finalmente, se encontró un alto grado de correlación entre en nivel de percepción y el nivel de conocimiento sobre la calidad del agua potable (82%), evidenciando en el coeficiente de determinación (67%) lo cual implica que, por cada 100 pobladores, en 67 su nivel de percepción sobre la calidad del agua está asociada con su nivel de conocimiento con lo cual se demostró que los talleres inductivos han mejorado significativamente el nivel de percepción respecto a la calidad del agua potable.The objective of this research work was to verify the level of perception and the level of knowledge regarding the quality of drinking water, for which inductive workshops were applied among the residents of the district of Nueva Cajamarca, 2017. The research arose due to that this locality does not count on the suitable service of basic sanitation, and before the evidences of the little knowledge of the population regarding the quality of the drinking water. Under this context, and a bibliographic review was carried out, it was assumed that the hypothesis that induction workshops were being carried out was then to improve the level of perception and level of knowledge regarding the quality of drinking water, the same considerations with variables for the present investigation. Regarding the methodological part, 41 villagers were taken as examples, who reached the conclusion that the examinations, before and after applying the workshops, concluding that the level of perception was the quality of the drinking water at the beginning of the researching. It was 66% improving up to 76% after applying the workshops; the level of knowledge at the beginning of the research was 55% improving and reaching 73% after applying the workshops. Finally, a high degree of correlation was found between the level of perception and the level of knowledge about the quality of drinking water (82%), evidencing the coefficient of determination (67%) which implies that, for every 100 inhabitants, in 67 their level of perception about water quality is associated with their level of knowledge, which showed that inductive equipment has improved the level of perception regarding the quality of drinking water.TesisAp
