Confidence in Women's Health: A Cross Border Survey of Adult Nephrologists.

J Clin Med 2019 Feb 3;8(2). Epub 2019 Feb 3.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON M4N 3M5, Canada.

A range of women's health issues are intimately related to chronic kidney disease, yet nephrologists' confidence in counseling or managing these issues has not been evaluated. The women's health working group of Cure Glomerulonephropathy (CureGN), an international prospective cohort study of glomerular disease, sought to assess adult nephrologists' training in, exposure to, and confidence in managing women's health. A 25-item electronic questionnaire was disseminated in the United States (US) and Canada via CureGN and Canadian Society of Nephrology email networks and the American Society of Nephrology Kidney News.

What we do and do not know about women and kidney diseases; Questions unanswered and answers unquestioned: Reflection on World Kidney Day and International Woman's Day.

Ter Arkh 2018 Jun;90(6):4-14

Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Chronic kidney disease affects approximately 10% of the world's adult population: it is within the top 20 causes of death worldwide, and its impact on patients and their families can be devastating. World Kidney Day and International Women's Day in 2018 coincide, thus offering an opportunity to reflect on the importance of women's health and specifically their kidney health, on the community, and the next generations, as well as to strive to be more curious about the unique aspects of kidney disease in women so that we may apply those learnings more broadly. Girls and women, who make up approximately 50% of the world's population, are important contributors to society and their families. Read More

A Window into the World of Nephrology Nursing: Nephrology Nurses' Views of the Health and Safety of Their Work Environments, the Impact on Patient Care, and Opportunities for Improvement.

Nephrol Nurs J 2018 Sep-Oct;45(5):437-449

Professor, Cizik School of Nursing, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston; Houston, TX.

In January 2018, the American Nephrology Nurses Association and Nephrology News and Issues conducted a national study, The Health and Safety of Nephrology Nurses and the Environments in Which They Work. This article presents initial qualitative results from that study - in the words of nephrology nurses. Based on responses of participants, themes and subthemes were identified: staffing, nursing practice (time to provide nursing care, nursing work hours, level of practice, nurses responsibility for the practice of others), work environment conditions (physical environments, psychological environments, civility/ incivility, environmental health, and work spaces), respect, recognition, interprofessional collaboration and support, and career and job satisfaction.

NephroTalk: Evaluation of a Palliative Care Communication Curriculum for Nephrology Fellows.

J Pain Symptom Manage 2018 Nov 14;56(5):767-773.e2. Epub 2018 Aug 14.

Department of General Medicine, Section of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA; Palliative and Supportive Institute, UPMC Health System, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Context: Nephrologists care for a medically complex population that faces difficult decisions around treatment options and end-of-life care. Yet communication training within nephrology fellowship is rare. Prior work suggests that communication training in nephrology can improve perceived preparedness to engage in difficult conversations; however, it is unclear if this training results in improved clinical skills.

The impact of improving education about OTC medications for diabetic patients.

Nephrol News Issues 2017 May;31(5):22-25

Physician assistants in the Phoenix Veterans Administration Health Care System (PVAHCS) undertook a process improvement project addressing the need for over-the-counter (OTC) medication counseling for diabetic patients. Within the framework of the Kidneys-in-a-Box (KIB) program, published by the National Academy of Nephrology PAs, participants examined current practices for the six modifiable factors outlined in the National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Chart review by PVAHCS found a significant lack in OTC medication education, with less than 10% of reviewed patients having been counseled on medications that may affect kidney function. Read More

PART 2. NEPHROLOGY SOCIAL WORK: LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD.

Nephrol News Issues 2017 Jan;31(1):28-32

The field of nephrology social work has undergone considerable change since the release of the 1976 federal regulations requiring a master's level social worker to be part of the renal team. Moderated by veteran nephrology social worker Stephanie Johnstone, LCSW, those who have served patients in the front lines of kidney care speak here about the past-"What has nephrology social work contributed in the last three decades, and what it has struggled to accomplish?" - and about the future: "How can nephrology social workers best serve patients in the years ahead? Where is their greatest potential to advance the industry?" Ms. Johnstone, an NN&I Editorial Advisory Board member, has worked for Fresenius Kidney Care for over 33 years. Read More

Continuous quality improvement in nephrology: a systematic review.

BMC Nephrol 2016 11 24;17(1):190. Epub 2016 Nov 24.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Nephrology, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Background: Continuous quality improvement (CQI) has been successfully applied in business and engineering for over 60 years. While using CQI techniques within nephrology has received increased attention, little is known about where, and with what measure of success, CQI can be attributed to improving outcomes within nephrology care. This is particularly important as payors' focus on value-based healthcare and reimbursement is tied to achieving quality improvement thresholds. Read More
