Public Health Nursing | Year: 2014
Changes in the delivery of community/public health (C/PH) nursing have challenged nursing educators to seek innovative ways to ensure that their educational programs produce competent entry-level practitioners. This article describes how public health professionals and faculty from eight regional colleges and universities in Southeastern Wisconsin came together to better understand both what C/PH nursing content was being taught in the region, and the extent to which that content was aligned with the Public Health Nurse Competencies defined by the Quad Council in 2004. Based on self-reporting by nursing school faculty as well as a separate mapping of course objectives into the competency areas, the project found that the curricula of the participating colleges and universities adequately addressed most of the competencies in the Quad Council domains one through six. Competencies in domains seven (financial planning/management skills) and eight (leadership/systems thinking skills) were not, however, adequately addressed and plans were subsequently developed to fill those gaps. In addition to helping each institution identify strengths and gaps in its own curriculum, the project provided an unprecedented opportunity for both public health professionals and academics to build relationships, share best practices, and exchange resources. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

BACKGROUND: As the number of individuals with significant disabilities transitioning into competitive, integrated employment increases, so must the knowledge, experience, and expectations of vocational rehabilitation personnel. Evolving responsibilities require that employment specialists acquire the information, skills, attitudes and values necessary to realize integrated outcomes. OBJECTIVE: This is a follow-up to Brown & Kessler's 2014 JVR article on generating integrated worksites for individuals with significant disabilities. This article outlines an integrated work skill analysis strategy for individuals with significant disabilities. It is intended that the information presented here can be used to increase the number of individuals with significant intellectual disabilities who function effectively in integrated employment. CONCLUSION: It is important that individuals with significant disabilities are given the opportunities to succeed in employment. Following strategies to ensure the particular work environment will be safe and appropriate for a particular worker is just one step towards the chance to thrive in the workplace. © 2016 - IOS Press and the authors.

Objectives. To estimate the prevalence of subjective memory complaints (SMCs) in a sample of community-dwelling, older adults and to examine cognitive bases of these complaints. Participants. 499 community-dwelling adults, 65 and older. Measurements. A telephone survey consisting of cognitive tests and clinical and sociodemographic variables. SMCs were based on subjects evaluations and subjects perceptions of others evaluations. Analysis. Logistic regression was used to model the risk for SMCs as a function of the cognitive, clinical, and sociodemographic variables. We tested for interactions of the cognitive variables with age, education, and gender. Results. 27.1% reported memory complaints. Among the younger age, better objective memory performance predicted lower risk for SMCs, while among the older age, better memory had no effect on risk. Among the better-educated people, better global cognitive functioning predicted lower risk for SMCs, while among the less-educated people, better global cognitive functioning had no effect on SMC risk. When predicting others perceptions, better objective memory was associated with lower risk for SMCs. Conclusion. Objective memory performance and global cognitive functioning are associated with lower risk for SMCs, but these relationships are the strongest for the younger age and those with more education, respectively. Age and education may affect the ability to accurately appraise cognitive functioning.

We describe 7years of follow-up for the energy/vitality outcome in early-stage Hodgkins disease patients treated on a randomized clinical trial that compared subtotal lymphoid irradiation (STLI) with combined modality treatment (CMT) (SWOG 9133). Survivorship research questions involved the extent to which symptoms/side effects endured over a follow-up period of 7years for this early-stage patient group.Two hundred thirty-nine patients participated in the quality of life (QOL) companion study (SWOG 9208) and completed the SF-36 vitality scale, SF-36 health perception item, Cancer Rehabilitation Evaluation System-Short Form (CARES-SF), and symptom distress scale. This paper reports vitality outcome results obtained from randomization, 6months, and annually for 7years. To assess changes in vitality over time, we used linear mixed models with patient as a random effect.Patients receiving CMT had lower observed vitality at 6months than did the STLI patients (p<.0001). However, beginning at year 1, vitality results did not differ significantly by treatment over the 5-year (p=.13) and 7-year (p=.16) follow-up periods. Vitality only slightly improved over baseline in either group after treatment. The results were similar after accounting for patterns of recurrence and missing data.This study demonstrated that patients with early-stage Hodgkins disease experience a short-term (at 6months) decrease in vitality with treatment, which is more severe with CMT, but that after the first year, vitality scores were similar between the two treatment groups. Enduring fatigue results for patients receiving these therapies were not observed. Implications for cancer survivors These data provide comprehensive 7-year follow-up vitality information, an important symptom for early-stage lymphoma survivors.
