Nurse prescribers are in an ideal position to make a rapid assessment and then prescribe and treat patients' pain, and must quickly decide which is the safest and most effective drug for each individual. This article compares intravenous morphine with intravenous paracetamol for managing pain in patients with isolated limb trauma ...

Regional anesthesia as a treatment modality for the control of surgical pain has been in practice since the late 1880s with the introduction of cocaine. The use of lipid emulsion therapy as an emerging treatment for the rare but life-threatening development of local anesthesia systemic toxicity (LAST) has been in the animal literature for approximately 20 years, and case reports have documented successful results with this treatment in humans. The perianesthesia nurse has a significant role in t...

Abstract Nurse educators are constantly seeking innovative ways to better prepare nursing students for clinical practice in the health care environment. One approach implemented by an associate degree program of nursing in southern Ohio is an automated medication dispensing system in the skills laboratory setting to evaluate first-year students' competency in administering medications. This self-report convenience survey evaluated the perceptions of 51 first semester nursing students following t...

Peristomal skin complications interfere with stoma appliance use and negatively affect patient quality of life. To find an alternative to long-term peristomal skin treatment involving corticosteroid products, a prospective study was conducted to compare the effect of a German chamomile solution to topical steroids on peristomal skin lesions in colostomy patients. Persons seeking care for the treatment of a peristomal skin lesion were assigned to a treatment regimen of once-a-day hydrocortisone 1...

We also know that nurses and teachers of pharmacology are not satisfied with the amount of pharmacology taught in preregistration programmes in the UK. There is a lack of primary research on nurses’ knowledge of pharmacology for the purpose of drug administration. Design. We used a non-experimental causal comp...
