Long-Acting Injectable Antipsychotic Medications: Why Aren't They Used as Often as Oral Formulations?

Long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic medications have been around since the 1960s as alternatives to oral formulations to improve medication adherence. LAIs are similar enough to their corresponding oral formulations to be used interchangeably and have convincing evidence of improving consistency in pharmacotherapy that reduces the rates of relapse and frequency of hospitalization for individuals with psychosis. So why are they not used as often? The current article presents an argument to initiate LA...

Teenagers and Cannabis Use: Why It's a Problem and What Can Be Done About It.

Teenagers' use of cannabis is a significant problem due to the known detrimental effects it has on the developing brain. Cannabis use in the teenage years is associated with a disruption to the brain's reward system, impaired memory and cognition, and the potential for structural brain changes. Smoking cannabis can have a negative impact on the pulmonary system because it is a respiratory irritant. Teenagers are increasingly using electronic cigarettes, or vaping, to administer cannabis, which delivers a hi...

Gender-Based Experiences of Verbal Bullying in Adolescents: Application of Giorgi's Method.

Verbal bullying among adolescents, which has become increasingly prevalent in recent years, often involves swearing or sexually ridiculing one's family members or peers. Because many factors underlying the initiation of verbal bullying remain unknown, Giorgi's phenomenological method was used to examine the essence and meaning of verbal bullying among adolescents, which is an urgent issue in the field of nursing in South Korea. In this descriptive phenomenological study, researchers examined the behavior of...

Evaluation of Factors Related to Prolonged Lengths of Stay for Patients With Autism With or Without Intellectual Disability.

Patients with autism spectrum disorder and/or intellectual disability (ASD/ID) face unique health care challenges. In addition to hospital experiences characterized by fear and insufficient staff training, these patients have 1.5-times longer lengths of stay (LOS) than patients without ASD/ID, and 3.4% of patients with ASD/ID have prolonged LOS (i.e., ≥30 days). Little research exists on factors related to prolonged LOS of patients with ASD/ID, hindering efforts to develop and implement evidence-based pra...

An Innovative Approach to Adequate Oral Hydration in an Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry Unit.

Suboptimal hydration status and dehydration are problems that often exacerbate comorbid conditions in geriatric patients. At a Veterans Administration Hospital, it was observed that suboptimal hydration status in Veterans hospitalized in the geriatric psychiatry unit was a contributing factor in the worsening of their psychiatric and medical conditions. A quality improvement project was chartered to improve hydration in this group of patients. Using a three-pronged intervention approach (i.e., providing fla...

Music Therapy and Physical Activity to Ease Anxiety, Restlessness, Irritability, and Aggression in Individuals With Dementia With Signs of Frontotemporal Lobe Degeneration.

The purpose of the current study was to evaluate whether a combined intervention of physical activity and music therapy could reduce anxiety, restlessness, irritability, and aggression among individuals with severe dementia. An exploratory design was used to evaluate a combined intervention of physical activity, music therapy, and daily walking. Interventions were systematically implemented for 8 weeks. Target groups were individuals with dementia with frontal lobe symptoms in institutional care. Primary ou...

Clinical Use of Dopamine Modulators as Third-Generation Antipsychotic Agents.

When dopamine was identified as a primary target for schizophrenia, the dopamine antagonists, now referred to as first-generation antipsychotics, were added to our pharmacopeia. In the 1990s, with the discovery of risperidone and clozapine, the mechanism of dopamine receptor antagonism was paired with serotonin receptor antagonism to give rise to second-generation antipsychotics. A decade later these mechanisms were further refined to selective dopamine receptors antagonism and serotonin receptors antagonis...

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment for Adolescents (SBIRT-A) Use in a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program.

Despite psychiatric nurses' competency in identifying comorbid substance use disorders, at-risk users are often overlooked. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Institute on Drug Abuse support screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) as an intervention that reduces mortality, alcohol and substance use, and health care and societal costs. SBIRT for Adolescents (SBIRT-A) has the potential to provide similar outcomes during this critical developmental ...

Ethical Reasoning in Prescribing and Monitoring Psychotropic Medications.

Traditionally, schools of nursing teach legal and ethical responsibilities at the pre-licensure and advanced practice levels, with emphasis on legal duties and ethical principles. However, involving clinicians in the process of ethical reasoning, a process similar to the scientific method and nursing process, is much less common. The current article describes and demonstrates the steps in ethical reasoning in common situations faced by prescribing advanced practice RNs and psychiatric-mental health nurses. ...

Socrates Café for Older Adults: Intergenerational Connectedness Through Facilitated Conversation.

Opportunities for social connectedness are important for older adults' psychosocial well-being. Social connections through intergenerational engagement provide older adults benefits such as increased generativity, improved cognitive functioning, and a greater sense of self-worth. The facilitated discussion known as Socrates Café is ideally suited for bridging generation gaps and inviting self-expression. Socrates Cafés provide an alternative to more traditional social programming by promoting communal inq...

Engagement in Psychotherapy Improves Outcomes for Veterans.

The longstanding partnership between the Birmingham Veterans Affairs Medical Center (BVAMC) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing inspired the establishment of one of the country's first psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) residencies and subsequent formation of a Resident Continuity Clinic (RCC). Within the RCC, PMHNP residents deliver evidence-based care that is informed by measurement-based care (MBC) to improve patient outcomes and reduce time to recovery. Determ...

Increasing Psychiatric Rehabilitation Knowledge in a Supported Housing Setting: Pre- and Posttest Analysis.

The current study investigated the effectiveness of a state-wide Community Support Services training grounded in work-based learning to improve knowledge about psychiatric rehabilitation principles and skills. Supervisory staff and direct care staff in supported housing settings completed a 17-item, multiple choice, preand posttest after attending a 48-hour training series. Results indicated that participants gained psychiatric rehabilitation knowledge. These findings support the effectiveness of the traini...

Using a Veterans Affairs Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Group Therapy Program With Refugees.

The PTSD Recovery Program, an intervention based on guidelines for the treatment of combat Veterans diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that includes group therapy as adjunctive treatment to medication and individual therapy, was used for the treatment of PTSD in refugees at a clinic in central Texas. Eighteen clients diagnosed with PTSD completed 10 weekly group therapy sessions in addition to individual therapy and medication use. An in-service presentation educated providers on the PTSD R...

Youth Experiences of Parent Incarceration: Doing Time From Both Sides.

In 2015-2016, an estimated 6 million children in the United States had at least one parent incarcerated. Children of incarcerated parents experience physical, mental, social, and economic consequences, including migraines, asthma, depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, school dropout, and homelessness. The purpose of the current phenomenological study was to gain an in-depth understanding of the experiences of youth who have or have had an incarcerated parent. Narratives were gathered from a sa...
