On #IND2022 we reflect on JBI’s origins as the ‘Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence Based Nursing’ and the continuing importance, 25 years on, of evidence-based nursing research and clinical practice
#JBIEBHC 🧵 1/7
Quality healthcare services require that clinical decision-making in #nursing is based on evidence, particularly in standardising and aligning healthcare practices with evidence at the point of care. JBI was founded by Emeritus Professor Alan Pearson to address this very need 2/7
‘When I was involved in setting up JBI in the 1990s, #EBM was increasingly adopted across the world, but #EBN was in its infancy. Since then, JBI has played a stellar role in developing great models and systems to support the implementation of evidence into nursing practice' 3/7

This is the NYT piece in which #AHA & #AONL is referencing. As I’ve said, I’m a fan of Robyn Begley she is truly committed to #nursing. But their response is wrong.… @WeNurses #NurseTwitter #ANursesVoice
I know the controversy of this piece seems to be on nurse to patient ratios (which lets be honest have worked well in CA, with the highest patient outcomes in the country in healthcare), but let’s not miss what was said: Today there are MORE NURSES in the US than ever in HISTORY!
Over 5 million to be exact - and only a little more 3 Million of them are practicing today. Why?!? The environments in which nurses are working are unsafe, understaffed & place so much risk on the license of a nurse - that nurses are choosing to no longer work in healthcare.

Throughout the last year, I've seen a number of friends, relatives, and patients claim their Christian faith as a reason to oppose #vaccines. The following argument has helped some reconsider. Maybe it's helpful for you or someone you know.
Christians who read history should be first in line for the COVID vaccines. Instead, there is very strong emphasis on personal choice and on God‘s will or fatalism where #COVID-19 is concerned.
But that’s actually a lot more about American individualism, which has become a western ideology in general, than it is about Christianity.

1| "Physician #burnout is real. The rate of suicide is really high. On top of that, with all the stressors of #Covid, we're hurting & we're afraid to show that we're hurting for fear of repercussions, for fear of being termed weak."

Watch the full video:
2| "It's the mentality of the patient comes first, which is great. But where do the providers come? And maybe that's a paradigm that needs to shift. We need to take care of ourselves. We need to take care of each other so that we can then take care of our patients."

Proud 🤩 to present our preprint on the use of #CO2 monitors in hospital: background, pilot data and protocol for an RCT.
A #COVID19 🧵 @trishgreenhalgh @mjb302
While Belgium is about to become one of the first countries to mandate #CO2monitors in bars, no evidence supports their use, which is particularly problematic in clinical medicine #EBM. How are CO2 levels in hospitals? What does the literature say? @HuffmanLabDU @j_g_allen
Widely varying results have been reported, with values >1000 p.p.m. up to 3000 p.p.m. in low-income setttings vs. excellent values in high-resource settings

If #HealthCare positions itself as public priority number one during a #pandemic, then it goes without saying #nurses in fact perform a critical and central role in delivering said #health care. #NursesWeek2021 #NursesWeek #NursesDay #NursesMonth #Nursing #NurseTwitter #Nurse
By not only advocating for #HealthPromotion in general, but by also educating #patients directly and the public at large of the preventive measures necessary to avoid illness and injury, it's not an exaggeration to call #nurses out as #noble..
...or, at the very least their selfless #professional #nursing pursuits can be considered as such. Conjoined with providing actual #MedicalCare AND assisting with #rehabilitation AND providing emotional & psychological #support AND...

When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

This is #MedBikini#professionalism” again

Is insidious
but highly effective
-different access

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism…
#medbikini is not one article
=attitude of many physicians
=drives this

We saw this happen with @ayshakhoury and @uche_blackstock and so many others. It especially happens at midcareer to WOC, especially black. Also if Muslim, LGBTQ, disabled, #mentalhealth

If you're a healthcare provider, whether you're a nurse, therapist, doctor, counselor, etc... If you laugh at your patients, then with all due respect, you can go fuck yourself.
I don't care how ridiculous you think your patient's hypothesis is, or how important you think you are.

You don't get to laugh at the people for whom you're providing healthcare. Have some fucking respect for your patients.
Imagine dealing with a problem until it becomes unbearable, looking for solutions on your own, then finally asking for help (and possibly paying 100s of dollars to do so).

Then, the person you ask for help laughs at you and/or tells you that you're exaggerating.

Only order tests when it will affect clinical decisions! The routine ordering of tests increases health care costs, doesn’t benefit patients and may in fact harm them.

Maintaining clinical practice as PhD or DNP/DPT tenure stream faculty is very difficult despite the essential need in #Nursing and probably PT too.
While I believe current clinical practice is essential for faculty on a tenure track - it is untenable.
This is why 👇
The infamous "three legged stool", the traditional model of tenure stream academia -teaching,research,service- does not include clinical practice
Clinical faculty are often separate from tenure stream faculty
Tenure stream #Nursing faculty are usually not in clinical sites
To fit the traditional model, I made the argument that my NP work in the clinic a day a week and in the summer was "service" in addition to usual service/leadership work at the university
This increased my workload and was not recognized as value-added to my faculty role

Year in, year out for decades #Nurses in General Practice have delivered the bulk of the flu vaccinations to the population of the U.K. @theRCN

It is therefore concerning that @MattHancock is apparently unaware that #Nursing has delivered the #flucampaign for so long. 1/
The law change mentioned here is clearly incorrect as @PHE_uk developed guidance that has been followed by individual nurses in practices within England for years.

It seems our HealthSecretary is very poorly advised on the scope & autonomy of nursing 2/
As the Health Secretary is so poorly informed, we are offering him the opportunity to meet with general practice nurses to discuss the actual scope of our work @bbchealth @DailyMailUK @DailyMirror @telegraph @nursingtimes @nursingnotes

We look forward to hearing from him 3/
