Introduction

Dr. Monica Parry is a Nurse Practitioner (Adult) with over 30 years of cardiovascular (CV) clinical experience. Her clinical expertise has laid the foundation for a program of research to reduce the burden of CV disease and its complications. Dr. Parry has developed three streams within her research program: 1) to identify individuals at risk of CV disease, 2) to improve care for individuals with/at risk of CV disease, and 3) to manage complications associated with CV disease. She had received advanced training from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to engage patients as partners in health research. Dr. Parry is currently funded (CIHR) with Clinical Trials Ontario (CTO) to develop a toolkit/decision resource for patient partners, researchers and clinicians.

Simulation in Advanced Practice Nursing (Editorial)

Clinical Simulation in Nursing, 26, 1-2

Clinical Simulation in Nursing

As co-editors, we are pleased with the overwhelming response to our call for manuscript submission to this special issue of Clinical Simulation in Nursing on Simulation in Advanced Practice Nursing. Graduate nursing education programs prepare advanced practice nurses (e.g., clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and nurse anesthetists) to work in education, research, and practice settings. However, diminishing graduate faculty, complexities/transitions of care, limited contact in practice settings, and maintaining competence challenge many advanced practice nursing education programs. Innovative approaches to education and curricular transformation suggest that an increased use of simulation can lead to increased knowledge, confidence, and practice skills without jeopardizing patient/health care safety. A range of simulation modalities are being used to achieve specific learning outcomes, from technical skills to communication and teamwork skills. Simulation has added value in many advanced practice nursing education programs, and this is clearly evident in the high caliber of manuscripts published in this special issue.

Postoperative Remote Automated Monitoring: Need for and State of the Science

Canadian Journal of Cardiology, 34, 850-862

Canadian Journal of Cardiology

Worldwide, more than 230 million adults have major non-cardiac surgery each year. Although surgery can improve quality and duration of life, it can also precipitate major complications. Moreover, a substantial proportion of deaths occur after discharge. Current systems for monitoring patients postoperatively, on surgical wards and after transition to home, are inadequate. On the surgical ward, vital signs evaluation usually occurs only every 4-8 hours. Reduced in-hospital ward monitoring , followed by no vital signs monitoring at home, leads to thousands of cases of undetected/delayed detection of hemodynamic compromise. In this article we review work to date on postoperative remote automated monitoring on surgical wards and strategy for advancing this field. Key considerations for overcoming current barriers to implementing remote automated monitoring in Canada are also presented.

National Survey of Indigenous primary healthcare capacity and delivery models in Canada: the TransFORmation of IndiGEnous PrimAry HEAlthcare delivery (FORGE AHEAD) community profile survey.

BMC Health Serv Res 2018 Nov 1;18(1):828. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Centre for Studies in Family Medicine, Western Centre for Public Health and Family Medicine, Department of Family Medicine, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, 1511 Richmond Street, London, ON, N6K 3K7, Canada.

Background: There is a significant deficiency of national health information for Indigenous peoples in Canada. This manuscript describes the Community Profile Survey (CPS), a community-based, national-level survey designed to identify and describe existing healthcare delivery, funding models, and diabetes specific infrastructure and programs in Indigenous communities.

Methods: The CPS was developed collaboratively through FORGE AHEAD and the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch of Health Canada. Regional and federal engagement and partnerships were built with Indigenous organizations to establish regionally-tailored distribution of the 8-page CPS to 440 First Nations communities. Results were collected (one survey per community) and reported in strata by region, with descriptive analyses performed on all variables. Results were shared with participating communities and regional/federal partners through tailored reports.

Results: A total of 84 communities completed the survey (19% response rate). The majority of communities had a health centre/office to provide service to their patients with diabetes, with limited on-reserve hospitals for ambulatory or case-sensitive conditions. Few healthcare specialists were located on-site, with patients frequently travelling off-site (>?40 km) for diabetes-related complications. The majority of healthcare professionals on-site were Health Directors, Community Health Nurses, and Home Care Nurses. Many communities had a diabetes registry but few reported a diabetes surveillance system. Regional variation in healthcare services, diabetes programs, and funding models were noted, with most communities engaging in some type of innovative strategy to improve care for patients with diabetes.

Conclusions: The CPS is the first community-based, national-level survey of its kind in Canada. Although the response rate was low, the CPS was distributed and successfully administered across a broad range of First Nations communities, and future considerations would benefit from a governance structure and leadership that strengthens community engagement, and a longitudinal research approach to increase the representativeness of the data. This type of information is important for communities and regions to inform decision making (maintain successes, and identify areas for improvement), strengthen health service delivery and infrastructure, increase accessibility to healthcare personnel, and allocate funding and/or resources to build capacity and foster a proactive chronic disease prevention and management approach for Indigenous communities across Canada.
