Transition into critical care areas for new graduate nurses may be more difficult than transitioning into other areas due to the specialised knowledge needed. It is unknown which aspects of transition programs best support new graduate nurses improve competence and confidence to transition into critical care nursing specialties. Identifying these aspects would assist to design and implement best practice transition programs for new graduates in critical care areas. Themes identified in the literature include; having a designated resource person, workplace culture, socialisation, knowledge and skill acquisition, orientation, and rotation. Allocation of a quality resource person/s, supportive workplace culture, positive socialisation experiences, knowledge and skill acquisition and structured orientation based on new graduates' learning needs all positively supported increased confidence, competence and transition into nursing practice. Rotations between areas within graduate programs can potentially have both positive and negative impacts on the transition process. Negative impacts of including a rotation component in a transition program should be carefully considered alongside perceived benefits when designing new graduate nurse transition programs.
- Computer-Assisted Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Depression in Primary Care: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. [Meta-Analysis]
- PCPrim Care Companion CNS Disord 2018 Mar 01; 20(2)

- Methodological Challenges to collecting Clinical and Economic Outcome Data: Lessons from the Pilot Dialysis Outcomes India Study. [Journal Article]
- NNephrology (Carlton) 2018 Mar 23
- CONCLUSIONS: Prospective data collection of incident dialysis patients was feasible but is resource-intensive. High out-of-pocket costs force some patients to stop dialysis and can generate a sense of despair. Poor patient experiences and suspicion over the use of such data adversely affects collection of important clinical and health economic data.

Bariatric surgery is performed on the gastrointestinal tract as a solution to obesity, and prevalence of these surgical procedures continues to rise. Bariatric surgery creates restrictive and/or malabsorptive properties, causing nutritional deficits from the physiological changes in absorption and a hypoacidic environment. Although surgery induces sustained weight loss, decreases mortality, and provides resolution or improvement to comorbidities of obesity, it can also come with complications. Common long-term complications of bariatric surgery include malnutrition, anemia, impaired wound healing, and impaired bone health. It is essential that nurses and the healthcare team caring for orthopaedic individuals with a history of bariatric surgery be aware of the special needs of these individuals, especially in the promotion of bone health. Using a multidisciplinary approach for the advancement of the orthopaedic patient's health will help promote quality patient care.
