Geriatr Nurs 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

New York University, Rory Meyers Collage of Nursing and NYU Aging Incubator, USA.

We pilot tested a carepartner-assisted intervention to improve oral hygiene in persons with cognitive impairment (participants) and help carepartners become leaders who can adapt approaches that foster participants' ability to develop new skills for oral hygiene care. Following the intervention, we conducted interviews with participants and carepartners to understand their challenges in working together to learn new oral hygiene skills. Participants reported challenges such as frustration using the electric toothbrush correctly, lack of desire to change, uncertainty about correctness of technique, and difficulty sustaining two minutes of toothbrushing.

The effect of registered nurses on nursing home residents' outcomes, controlling for organizational and health care market factors.

Geriatr Nurs 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Education, Jeonju University, South Korea.

Despite cumulative and integrative evidence of registered nurse (RN) staffing on nursing home residents' outcomes worldwide, few studies integrate the effects of residents' case mix, healthcare markets, and nurse staffing on psychotropic-medication use and weight loss in Korea. This article examined the relationship between nurse staffing and residents' quality-of-care outcomes, controlling for long-term healthcare market characteristics in Korea. Using a multilevel cross-sectional design, a disproportionate stratified random sampling was used. Read More

The goal of this quality improvement study was to identify opportunities to facilitate information transfer during hospital-to-home-health-care transitions for older adults with heart failure. We conducted focus groups with 19 nurses employed by a single healthcare system using two commercially available electronic health record (EHR) vendors. Read More

Cost-effective solutions for enhancing QOL in the older population are much needed in China, with its rapidly ageing population. We conducted a randomized controlled trial involving 112 community-dwelling older participants with mild to moderate depression, to evaluate the effect of Tai Chi with music on QOL (57 in intervention group, 55 in control group).

The goal of this retrospective cohort study is to identify resident characteristics associated with longer length of stay using the CLC Minimum Data Set (n = 35,114). Length of stay was defined as three groups: short (<90 days), moderate (91-365 days), and long (beyond 365 days). Read More
