Cardinal symptoms include nausea, vomiting, early satiety, bloating, and upper abdominal pain. The aim of DGP treatment is to alleviate the severity and frequency of symptoms, improve the level of gastric emptying, ameliorate the patient's nutritional status and to optimize glycemic control. In the treatment of chronic drug-refractory nau...

ConclusionOPCCs for HF primarily focused on evaluating symptoms (i.e., mood, dyspnea), advance directive/code status, caregiver/family support, functional status, and on recommending care coordination and referrals. There were considerable regional differences in OPCC assessment and recommendation practices. Results may be biased by disparate OPCC documentation templates at each site.  Additional measures, such as uniform charting templates, are needed to ensure that OPCCs for HF patients are comprehensive and standardized.ResultOf 61 ENABLE CHF-PC participants, 39 (64%) had an OPCC (Northeast site, n=27; Southea...

ConclusionsThe educational intervention was designed to increase awareness and understanding of the nursing staff regarding the nature, characteristics, negative outcomes, and costs of delirium, as well as the success and net monetary benefit of prevention protocols. The educational program focused on practical strategies derived from the NICE Clinical Guideline 103. Delirium prevention reduces length of stay, healthcare costs, and nursing hours per patient day. Prevention also improves patient outcomes. The minimal costs of the protocol will increase nursing and administrative support for prevention interventions.Nurses a...
