  • Challenges for nurses when communicating with people who have life-limiting illness and their families: A focus group study. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Nurs 2019Kerr D, Milnes S, … Martin P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Caring for individuals with life limiting illness is complex, and often occurs in an emotionally charged environment. However, nurses report being hampered by time restraints and lack of information about the patient's condition and goals of care. Limitations in conversation structure and a comprehensive range of core communication skills affects their ability to confidently engage in conversations, particularly when they are responding to prognostic questions.Whilst nurses are responsible for performing technical skills, they can maximise care by developing a trusting relationship with patients and their relatives. Increased acuity limits the time nurses have to talk with patients. In addition, they lack confidence to deal with difficult questions. Specific training may increase nurses' confidence and efficiency when communicating with patients and their families.
  • Patient Ethnicity and Pediatric Visits to the Emergency Department for Fever. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Emerg Care 2019Shapiro DJ, Fine AM
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is significant ethnic variation in the use of emergency medical services for fever in the United States, and these disparities are not fully explained by differences in the acuity of illness or differences in socioeconomic status. Interventions to empower parents to manage nonurgent pediatric fever should incorporate ethnocultural differences in parents' understanding of fever.
