A Community of Exceptional Nurses
Predicting Immobility-related and Medical Device-related Pressure Ulcer Risk in Pediatric Patients
Curley and her research team with colleagues from five pediatric hospitals will further assess the predictive validity of the Braden Q Scale for the development of immobility-related pressure ulcers.
In addition, they will test a new element, referred to as the Braden Q+D, to describe pediatric patients’ risk for medical device-related pressure ulcers.
Two-group Trial of a Terminal Ventilator Withdrawal Algorithm: Pilot Testing
Campbell’s research team will investigate the process of ventilator withdrawal for patients at the end of life. Their study will look at standardizing a nurse-led approach to patient comfort during the ventilator withdrawal process, reducing patient suffering and family distress.
The researchers will compare outcomes for patients who receive the new standardized approach with patients who receive usual care; the data will guide a future randomized trial.
Generating a Theoretical Model of the Psychological Processes of Surrogate Decision Making at Adult End of Life in the ICU, Using Cognitive Task Analysis
Dionne-Odom’s long-term aim is to design and test novel, nursing-led decision support interventions for surrogate decision makers undergoing the often burdensome role of making choices for others who are dying in the ICU.
The study will address the creation of healing and humane environments and improve processes and systems that foster the optimal contribution of critical care nurses.
Effect of Nursing Interventions on Reducing Cardiac Monitor Alarm Burden in the Neurosurgical ICU
Mammone’s study is focused on assessing the effectiveness of nursing interventions to reduce alarm fatigue related to physiologic monitors in the neuroscience ICU.
She will examine sources of alarms and implement interventions to minimize the clinical risks associated with excessive alarms and alarm fatigue among clinicians.
Relationship Between the Organization of Hospital Nursing and In-hospital Cardiac Arrest Outcomes
Rochman and her team will examine the relationship between nursing delivery system strategies and in-hospital cardiac arrest patient outcomes; the study will merge two unique large national databases and provide significant insight into the connection between nursing care and resuscitation outcomes.
