BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Confusion remains about the use of the observer role in simulation. Observational learning is an emerging form of brain-based learning that is applicable to experiential learning and simulation, warranting the further exploration of theoretical foundations. This article describes how observational experiential learning theoretically supports the use of observer roles in simulation.
A sense of connection is central to nursing education and is associated with positive student outcomes. The aim of this concept analysis was to clarify the meaning of student interpersonal connection in nursing education.
Students and clinicians are challenged to locate evidence to answer clinical questions. Searching experiences include frustration with words to query databases, lack of searching skills, lack of confidence in nursing databases, and questioning how many databases to search.

Natural disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey, can provide unique hands-on learning experiences for nursing students.
As the link between social factors and health outcomes has been increasingly identified in nursing research, educators are called to provide clinical experiences that allow undergraduate nursing students to grapple with social complexity and barriers in the health care system. Future nurses need community-based experiences to develop care coordination and community partnering skills to lead in this area of health care transformation.
Global organizations urge toward transformative, lifelong learning for nurses and midwives. Throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, strengthening the quality of nursing and midwifery education is top priority. A regional partnership of World Health Organization Collaborating Centers aimed to develop a user-friendly, culturally relevant, and adaptable educational quality improvement intervention.
A systematic evaluation plan is required in nursing education to determine achievement of curricular initiatives and to improve program student learning outcomes. An innovative approach that included direct involvement of students was implemented in the evaluation of a quality improvement (QI) initiative aimed at enhancing student success.
Interprofessional education is essential to ensure that health care graduates are prepared for collaborative practice. One way to prepare students for interprofessional practice is to expose them to interprofessional activities throughout their educational program.
Accelerated growth in Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs has mandated the need for innovative strategies for doctoral students to defend their final scholarly work while protecting the integrity and rigor of the experience.
Near-peer teaching is a form of peer-assisted learning with at least 1 year of difference between the groups of students.
Newly graduated nurses' communication ability often does not satisfy the needs of clinical sites. New training pedagogies are needed to help nursing students improve communication skills. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of simulation-based deliberate practice on cultivating nursing students' communication, empathy, and self-efficacy.
The detrimental impact of incivility in health care is well documented. Nursing students and new graduate nurses are particularly vulnerable to its effects. Evidence-based civility education strategies are urgently needed to address incivility, which can protect patient safety.
Public health advocacy is central to the work of many health professionals, including nurses. Although deemed to be a core competency for public health practitioners, courses described in the literature often lack a focus on experiential learning, which is an essential component to acquiring public health advocacy skills.

People living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) experience stigma and discrimination. Negative attitudes of nursing faculty about caring for PLHIV can adversely affect student perceptions and their nursing care. The study purpose was to describe nursing faculty attitudes and beliefs about caring for PLHIV.
Gamification provides nursing students with a setting in which they can practice clinical reasoning and decision making in a realistic and secure way. The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of gamification on decision making in nursing students.
The World Health Organization recommends that health care educators create a collaborative and practice-ready workforce. Focused interprofessional education (IPE) promotes collaborative practice, yet few examples of how to develop sustained IPE and clinical partnerships exist. Mental health care professionals competent in their specialty and prepared for interprofessional collaboration are needed to treat complex mental health needs of patients.
