The Expanding Role of Nurse Practitioners in Home-Based Primary Care: Opportunities and Challenges.

J Gerontol Nurs 2019 Jun;45(6):9-14

Approximately 93% of Medicare spending is for beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions. Costs of poorly coordinated or delayed care for this vulnerable population are staggering-not just measured in dollars and cents, but in overall psychosocial burdens of poor health and diminished quality of life. Home-based primary care (HBPC) practices are an effective way to meet needs of frail older adults who find it difficult, if not impossible, to leave home for medical care with an overall cost savings to Medicare.

Concept Analysis of Unintended Consequences.

Mykin Higbee

Creat Nurs 2018 May;24(2):99-104

This article utilizes a modified version of Walker and Avant's framework for concept analysis (2011) to identify the characteristics, defining attributes, and antecedents of the concept of unintended consequences, present a model case and empirical referents, and provide a practical and theoretical application to nursing.

Circulation 2017 Apr 23;135(16):e894-e918. Epub 2017 Mar 23.

Adults are living longer, and cardiovascular disease is endemic in the growing population of older adults who are surviving into old age. Functional capacity is a key metric in this population, both for the perspective it provides on aggregate health and as a vital goal of care. Whereas cardiorespiratory function has long been applied by cardiologists as a measure of function that depended primarily on cardiac physiology, multiple other factors also contribute, usually with increasing bearing as age advances.

Visioning change: Co-producing a model of involvement and engagement in research (Innovative Practice).

Dementia (London) 2019 Oct-Nov;18(7-8):3165-3172. Epub 2016 Oct 16.

Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, University of Manchester, UK; Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, UK.

The involvement of people living with dementia in research has traditionally been located in the realms of 'subject' or 'participant'. However, there has been an increase in demand for greater transparency by academic bidding teams (particularly within the UK) in demonstrating how people with a lived experience have been and will be involved in the research process. Located within the Economic and Social Research Council/National Institute for Health Research (ESRC/NIHR)-funded Neighbourhoods and Dementia Study (2014-2019), led by The University of Manchester (UK), this paper outlines the development of the CO-researcher INvolvement and Engagement in Dementia (COINED) Model, which was co-produced alongside three independent groups of people living with dementia: Open Doors, the Scottish Dementia Working Group and EDUCATE.
