In the United States, lack of proper handwashing is associated with respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses. Interventions to improve handwashing practices have led to an increase in handwashing knowledge and behavior, and decreases in gastrointestinal illnesses. Most studies have evaluated their interventions in the context of reported handwashing rates by observation, reduction of illnesses, as well as reduced absences, however none of these studies examined handwashing quality or knowledge as outcome ...
School-supervised inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) therapy improves pediatric asthma medication adherence, outcomes, and morbidity. However, school-supervised ICS therapy has not been widely adopted into practice. We developed Asthma Link™ as a sustainable, low-cost model of school-supervised asthma therapy, designed for real-world adoption. Initial outcomes of Asthma Link™ demonstrated a significant improvement in health outcomes.
The recruitment setting plays a key role in the evaluation of behavioral interventions. We evaluated a behavioral intervention for urban adolescents with asthma in three randomized trials conducted separately in three different settings over the course of 8 years. We hypothesized that characteristics of trial participants recruited from the ED and clinic settings would be significantly different from that of youth participating in the school-based trials. The intervention evaluated was Puff City, a web-base...
To generate effect sizes of preliminary program outcomes and identify areas for program improvement related to a nurse-led, community-based screening, referral, and advocacy program for women with perinatal opioid use disorder (OUD): the Engaging Mothers for Positive Outcomes with Early Referrals (EMPOWER) project.
Registered Nurse Preceptors guide students to integrate theory into practice, assess clinical competencies, and enhance problem-solving skills. Researches have indicated that the teaching competencies of nurse preceptors can be transferred to students' clinical learning.
School-based running programs that promote daily (or regular) walking/jogging/running are an emerging public health initiative. However, evaluation of these programs has predominantly used quantitative measures that limit understanding and explanations of contextual influences on pupil participation. Therefore, the aim of this study was to qualitatively explore pupils' experiences of participating in a primary-school-based running program (Marathon Kids) to provide relevant insights and inform program devel...
To use spatial analysis methodology to analyze residential and school proximity to major roadways and pediatric asthma morbidity.
This study investigated the effects of a school-based vocal hygiene education program "Green Voice for School" on promoting knowledge of healthy voice use for primary school students.
Asthma is common among urban school-age children. Though teachers should be prepared to assist children during an asthma attack, studies show they lack self-efficacy in managing asthma. To assess feasibility of implementing an asthma workshop for elementary school teachers, describe themes of questions raised, and determine workshop's impact on teachers' comfort and self-efficacy in asthma management. We developed and implemented an asthma workshop for teachers from four Bronx elementary schools (2012-201...
: The state of asthma management and asthma control at the population level in Nigeria are unknown. We aimed to determine the level of asthma control and asthma management practices in Nigeria. : A cross-sectional population-based study of 405 participants with current asthma (physician-diagnosed with use of asthma medication or asthma symptoms in the preceding 12 months). We determined the level of asthma control, self-perception of asthma control, health care use, missed work/school, and medication use. :...
The growing body of evidence documenting the effectiveness of brace treatment for scoliosis has renewed interest in potential benefits of early detection through school screening. We aimed to assess the prevalence and identify barriers of screening. We hypothesized that school screening is more frequent in schools that have a nurse on staff compared to schools without nurse on staff.
The purpose of this study is to identify the most supportive and restrictive factors contributing to students' ability to persist through nursing program course completion as perceived by 59 nontraditional students enrolled in a nursing associate degree program. The Student Perception Appraisal-Revised tool was used. Results include that encouragement by friends within school is the top supportive factor, while financial status was found to be the most restrictive factor. Students' perceptions of why they a...
The walking school bus (WSB) is a promising intervention to increase walking to school and physical activity in school-age children. The aim of this qualitative study was to assess parent perceptions of a WSB program that was part of a randomized controlled trial to inform future programs.
The Symptom Navi© Programme (SN©P) is a structured nurse-led intervention supporting symptom self-management in cancer patients. We describe the development and evaluation of the intervention, implementation strategy, and the evaluation of nurse training for the Symptom Navi© Pilot Study.
Integrating behavioral health services into nurse-led primary care at one location ensures that individuals receive a comprehensive array of preventive and restorative services, based on their varying needs. A formative program evaluation of a federally funded behavioral health integration (BHI) project in a small nurse-led clinic used the Omaha System taxonomy to explore the changes in the documented practice of providers due to the BHI implementation. The evaluation provided evidence of the benefits of a ...
Unhealthy habits in adolescents are increasing at an alarming rate. The school offers a promising environment in which to implement effective preventive strategies to improve adolescents' lifestyle behaviors. The SI! Program is a multilevel multicomponent school-based health-promotion intervention aimed at all stages of compulsory education in Spain. We present the study design of the SI! Program for Secondary Schools, targeting adolescents aged 12 to 16 years.
To understand the role of Maryland Head Start (HS) programs in asthma care and identify resources and needs to improve health outcomes.
There is an association between persistent preschool wheezing phenotypes and school-age asthma. These wheezing/asthma phenotypes likely represent clinical entities having specific genetic risk factors. The SERPINA1 gene encodes α -antitrypsin (AAT), and mutations in the gene are important in the pathophysiology of pulmonary diseases. We hypothesized that there might be an association between SERPINA1 gene polymorphisms and the risk of developing wheezing/school age asthma.
An intervention including business training and health education was implemented in Mozambique, where girls are at elevated risk for acquiring HIV. As part of a mixed-methods evaluation, we describe perceived effects of the intervention on girls' sexual behavior and school attendance.
This modified Delphi study determined consensus on core nurse competency program components that apply across the continuum of transition to initial practice, to new specialty practice, to a new role, or within general nursing orientation. The literature review found no published agreement on support and systems for universal transition programs. This broad-based study addressed this gap by identifying core elements within a competency or transition program and then ranking their importance within program s...
