Health care organizations recognize that it is difficult to achieve consistent excellence in patient experience. Nursing leaders cannot underestimate the importance of the role they play in efforts to improve the patient experience. This article outlines a call to action for nurse leaders to consider reframing the patient experience as a focal point for the entire organization's strategic approach and tactics. This involves facilitating a dialogue about the organization's patient experience definition; buil...
Improvements in childhood survival rates have been achieved in low- and middle- income countries that have made a commitment to improve access to cancer care. Accurate data on the costs of delivering cancer treatment in these settings will allow ministries of health and donors to accurately assess and plan for expansions of access to care. This study assessed the financial cost of treating two common pediatric cancers, nephroblastoma and Hodgkin lymphoma, at the Butaro Cancer Center of Excellence in rural R...
Research translation and evaluation are often underconsidered in research design and implementation thus limiting research benefit to the end user. In this article, we first describe a best practice approach to evaluation, for a center of research excellence in polycystic ovary syndrome. Within this, we outline a comprehensive research translation program with inbuilt evaluation of the first (2018). We seek to provide a real-world example of comprehensive approaches to evaluation and research translation.
Phenomenon: The call component of clerkship presents students with unique opportunities and challenges. Clerkship programs employ various call modalities, including traditional call, night float, and evening call. The impact of these call models on the student experience has not been explored in depth.
It has been more than 35 years since an enterprising team of nurse researchers evaluated the nursing shortage of the 1980s and unearthed findings that led to the creation of the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Magnet Recognition Program®. Today, the Magnet® credential stands as the highest international acknowledgment of nursing excellence in healthcare organizations.
To report on cases of head and neck cancer (HNC) among World Trade Center (WTC) responders participating in the WTC Health Program and seen at Rutgers WTC Center of Clinical Excellence.
Since 1981, Gordon Research Conferences have been held on the topic of Oxygen Radicals on a biennial basis, to highlight and discuss the latest cutting edge research in this area. Since the first meeting, one special feature of this conference has been the awarding of the so-called Iron Bolt, an award that started in jest but has gained increasing reputation over the years. Since no written documentation exists for this Iron Bolt award, this perspective serves to overview the history of this unusual award, ...
Maternal and neonatal outcomes in the immediate post-delivery period are critical indicators of quality of care. Data on childbirth outcomes in low-income settings usually require home visits, which can be constrained by cost and access. We report on the use of a call center to measure post-discharge outcomes within a multi-site improvement study of facility-based childbirth in Uttar Pradesh, India.
It is an incredible honor to receive the Woman in Cell Biology Mid-Career Award for Excellence in Research. My lab works on cell-cell fusion, an indispensable process in the conception, development, and physiology of multicellular organisms. In this essay, I reflect on my curiosity-led journey, which uncovered some unexpected mechanisms underlying cell-cell fusion.
Abnormal invasive placenta (AIP) causes significant maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. With the increasing incidence of cesarean delivery, this condition is dramatically more common in the last 20 years. Advances in grayscale and Doppler ultrasound have facilitated prenatal diagnosis of abnormal placentation to allow the development of multidisciplinary management plans. Outcomes are improved when delivery is accomplished in centers with multidisciplinary expertise and experience in the care of...
Operational Excellence is about allowing the system to put the correct processes in place to empower all staff members to make change. These processes will evolve into continuous quality improvement, allowing the best outcomes to be achieved. At Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, the right structures are in place to incorporate continuous process improvement by using an Operational Excellence board. This article discusses how the Operational Excellence concept and board was used in a busy cardiothoracic ...
Multispectral images contain rich recognition information since the multispectral camera can reveal information that is not visible to the human eye or to the conventional RGB camera. Due to this characteristic of multispectral images, multispectral face recognition has attracted lots of research interest. Although some multispectral face recognition methods have been presented in the last decade, how to fully and effectively explore the intraspectrum discriminant information and the useful interspectrum co...
In the present study, we demonstrate a tunneling nanogap technique to identify individual RNA nucleotides, which can be used as a mechanism to read the nucleobases for direct sequencing of RNA in a solid-state nanopore. The tunneling nanogap is composed of two electrodes separated by a distance of < 3 nanometers and functionalized with a recognition molecule. When a chemical entity is captured in the gap, it generates electron tunneling currents, a process we call recognition tunneling (RT). Using RT nanoga...
How did a moderately sized scientific society create what many consider to be the leading journal in biology education? As Editor-in-Chief of the education journal of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), CBE-Life Sciences Education ( LSE) and recipient of the 2018 Bruce Alberts Award for Excellence in Science Education, I tell the story of the establishment, growth, and impact of ASCB's "other journal."
On-call working arrangements are employed in a number of industries to manage unpredictable events, and often involve tasks that are safety- or time-critical. This study investigated the effects of call likelihood during an overnight on-call shift on self-reported pre-bed anxiety, sleep and next-day cognitive performance. A four-night laboratory-based protocol was employed, with an adaptation, a control and two counterbalanced on-call nights. On one on-call night, participants were instructed that they woul...
I am submitting my introduction of Dr. Kyle Gustafson for the American Society of Parasitologists Ashton Cuckler New Investigator Award I presented at the ASP annual meeting in Cancun Mexico a few months ago.
I am deeply honored to receive the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) Prize for Excellence in Inclusivity made possible through a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. This generous award of $5000 will go toward travel and registration support for underrepresented students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to attend the ASCB and SACNAS (Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) conferences. In this essay, I have woven together a few stories on how ...
Weed control is a substantial challenge in field management. A better weed control method at an earlier growth stage is important for increasing yields. As a promising weed control technique, intelligent weeding based on machine vision can avoid the harm of chemical weeding. For machine vision, it is critical to extract and segment crops from their background. However, there is still no optimal solution for object tracking with occlusion under a similar color background. In this study, it was found that the...
Very long intergenic non-coding RNAs (vlincRNAs) are a novel class of long transcripts (~50 kb to 1 Mb) with cell type- or cancer-specific expression. We report the discovery and characterization of 256 vlincRNAs from a cohort of 64 primary childhood pre-B and pre-T acute lymphoblastic leukemia (cALL) samples, of which 61% are novel and specifically expressed in cALL. Validation was performed in 35 pre-B and pre-T cALL primary samples. We show that their expression is cALL immunophenotype and molecular subt...
The unpredictable, "on-call" component of the emergency services (ES) may be difficult to navigate in the context of domestic and work responsibilities, and especially difficult for women, given they tend to take on a greater household burden than do men. Our aim was to understand women's experiences in the ES, particularly the impact of being on-call and related coping strategies.
Consumers have questions about their medication but the nature of these concerns and how they reflect medication use is unknown.
A nationwide trend toward "centers of excellence" for medical and surgical care has led to development and scrutiny of high-volume surgical specialty centers. The prevalence of hernias and the complexity of successful repair have led to the establishment of specialty practices. Herein we review and discuss the components of the successful establishment of a tertiary hernia referral center.
