Spiritual Perspective, Mindfulness, and Spiritual Care Practice of Hospice and Palliative Nurses Spiritual care is a key tenet of palliative care. A nurse's spiritual perspective has been recognized as an influencing factor in spiritual care, and results from several studies have shown an increase in spiritual perspective as a result of participation in programs designed to develop mindfulness as well as developing skills necessary for spiritual care. A descriptive correlational design was used with a convenience sample of nurses from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association.

Ask the Right Questions: What Do Non-Caregiving Adult Children Need From Health Care Providers? Extended healthy life spans are a relatively recent phenomenon that increase the amount of time families spend with older adults in non-caregiving roles. As the emphasis of health care moves to population health and health prevention, nurses caring for older adults must be knowledgeable about this family life stage. To learn more about the lived experience of non-caregiving adult children, 16 non-caregiving adult children were interviewed. The purpose of the current article is to share what needs non-caregiving adult children have from the health care system as they obtain care for themselves and accompany their parent for health care visits.

Patient-centered care coordination in population health case management While driving through any American city, it is easy to see that neighborhoods differ dramatically. Some are blessed with amenities that promote optimal health and well-being for their residents such as parks, playgrounds, walking trails; super markets that provide healthy foods options, fresh fruits and vegetables; buildings in good repair and hospitals within close proximity. All of these amenities/attributes of healthy living are designed to promote social and health success. Healthy people make healthy communities and healthy communities make healthy societies. It must be noted however, that medical health needs are best satisfied and health services are easier to access if you are insured or possess health literacy.

Intravenous Fluid Administration: Improving Patient Outcomes With Evidence-based Care Intravenous (IV) fluid administration is one of the most common interventions in the hospital setting. The associated complication rate is higher than previously believed, with adverse effects impacting recovery, length of stay, cost, patient safety, and survival. Several patient populations are at increased risk, and there are substantial data implicating inappropriate fluid administration as a contributing factor to increased morbidity and mortality. Related complications are largely preventable, and unmet educational needs are well-documented. An increase in evidence-based management has the potential to improve outcomes related to a number of quality indicators.

Case Management and the Homeless Population: Nursing Case Managers Meeting the Challenge Homelessness has increasingly become a health concern in the United States. It has been well documented the involvement of the nurse case manager in the delivery of care can serve to enhance the outcomes of any patient population. A review of the literature on the homeless population confirms this assumption. The purpose of this paper is to explain the many facets of homelessness and their health issues in the United States as well as the role of the case manager for this population. The impact case management has on medical and non-medical/social outcomes for this population is discussed.

Blueprint for Advancing High-Value Maternity Care Through Physiologic Childbearing The Blueprint for Advancing High-Value Maternity Care Through Physiologic Childbearing charts an efficient pathway to a maternity care system that reliably enables all women and newborns to experience healthy physiologic processes around the time of birth, to the extent possible given their health needs and informed preferences. The authors are members of a multistakeholder, multidisciplinary National Advisory Council that collaborated to develop this document. This approach preventively addresses troubling trends in maternal and newborn outcomes and persistent racial and other disparities by mobilizing innate capacities for healthy childbearing processes and limiting use of consequential interventions.
