1. Rico, Evangeline. Teaching and Evaluation of Suicidal Assessment, Five-Step Evaluation and Triage (SAFE-T) in the Emergency Department.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2016, San Jose State University

Suicide remains to be a global and a national problem, and it continues to be one of the leading causes of death in the United States (U.S.) The Emergency Department (ED), being the gateway to the hospital can provide a great opportunity to assess each patient for suicidal ideation, and evaluate if patients present with risk factors for suicide. The competency of the ED staff plays a critical role in early recognition of patients who are at risk, and in implementing a plan of care for those with positive screens. However, researchers showed that knowledge deficit and lack of education regarding suicide assessment have contributed to failure in identifying high-risks suicidal patients. Failure to identify, monitor and provide early interventions can result in adverse sentinel events. This study examined the effect of teaching the ED nurses the Suicidal Assessment, Five-Step Evaluation and Triage (SAFE-T), an evidenced based tool for suicide assessment designed for ED triage. This study measured post-teaching intervention to assess if SAFE-T teaching increased knowledge of nurses regarding assessment and care of suicidal patients. The results showed that SAFE- T teaching increased nurse’s knowledge in identifying risk and protective factors, it showed improved suicide inquiry, and increased knowledge in nursing determination of risk level and appropriate nursing intervention.

2. White, Maria D. Bio-Identical Hormones Utilized for Treating Menopausal Symptoms: Are They Safe?.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2015, San Jose State University

The use of compounded bioidentical hormones in the various forms of gels, creams, and troches has increased in popularity. The population of menopausal women is at a crossroads with the cascade of symptoms and determining what are their options. The Endocrine Society, the Food and Drug Administration, and the National Menopause Society do not support the use of bioidentical hormones, despite the support for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) by the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine and other proponents for BHRT. The literature review reveals the need for studies documenting the safety of BHRT. The objective for this study was to conduct a retrospective chart review for the incidence of adverse outcomes specific to osteoporosis, breast cancer incidence, and cardiovascular disease in menopausal women utilizing BHRT.

3. Nikander, Donna. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Mindfulness Practice in Children and Adolescents: A Comprehensive Review of Evidence-Based Research.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2015, San Jose State University

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common mental illness in the United States among male and female children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 17. The emerging fields of neurobiology and neuroimaging have proposed a relationship between mindfulness meditation therapies—initially referred to as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and now simply known as mindfulness—and improvements in attention and self-regulation, two major problem areas for ADHD sufferers. Furthermore, recent studies suggest that mindfulness therapies may be effective in reducing symptoms of ADHD in children and adolescents. The purpose of this paper is to review, analyze and synthesize the available evidence-based research that pertains to ADHD and mindfulness among this demographic. My methodology consisted of a comparison and analysis of peer-reviewed research articles, written in English, concerning controlled and non-controlled studies of the effects of mindfulness on children, adolescents, and ADHD individuals. The results suggested improvements in the quality of scientific research into mindfulness among children and adolescents with ADHD, as well as high potential for the application of mindfulness therapies to this population. However, I also identified persistent research flaws; these included small study sample sizes, insufficient random controlled trials, and insufficient focus on children and adolescents formally diagnosed with ADHD. Nonetheless, this research provides early empirical evidence of the efficacy and harmlessness of mindfulness therapies for children and adolescents. This subject warrants further research, incorporating larger, randomized control trials, which should ideally include ADHD children and adolescents of varying developmental levels, ages, gender, races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
