NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library

NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library I am currently working at a skilled nursing facility (SNF) here in North Carolina and so I selected a peer-reviewed journal article relating to SNF. Walden University Library (n.d.) offers 15 databases for nursing-related articles and other publications. It did not take long for me to find what I need because out of the 15 databases provided by the online library, I selected the first option which was the CINAHL Plus with Full Text. I was then redirected to an EBSCOhost page wherein I had to type skilled nursing facility on the first search box and then dementia on the second box. I also limited my search to full text and peer-reviewed scholarly journals. I came across the topic “Outcomes of Post‐acute Care in Skilled Nursing Facilities in Medicare Beneficiaries with and without a Diagnosis of Dementia” by Robert E. Burke, Yao Xu, and Ashley Z. Ritter which was published in October 2021. I am interested in dementia because I have many patients with this disease. I was curious whether dementia would be a factor for hospital readmission, increased mortality, and reduced discharge to patient’s home. Burke et al. (2021) concluded that dementia was not a factor for the outcomes they set which were hospital readmission, community discharge rate, and mortality rate while admitted at the SNF. I was surprised that it was cognitive impairment during SNF admission as the factor that better predicted the three outcomes mentioned above. I did not encounter any trouble along the way while doing my search in the CINAHL Plus database. The database was easy to use for a novice like me NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library.
This database is valuable not only to me but also to my colleagues because there are a lot of publications for us to select from. We can get multiple resources of our chosen topic for future literature review or coursework. One highlight of this database is its feature to refine your search.  The publication date can range from 1970 to 2021. You can narrow down your search to academic journals, magazines, CEUs, and evidence-based care sheets. You can also limit your search with options like full text, peer-reviewed scholarly journals, abstract available, and all books. There are also other options for you to set to taper down your search which include subject: major heading, publication, publisher, language, age, etc.
I would recommend this database for several reasons. First, it contains a lot of publications with access to full text rather than just abstract. Second, it is free to use for Walden students. Third, it offers several options to limit your search, for example, option for peer-reviewed publications. Lastly, you can download as a PDF file a publication you are interested in.
For a successful scholarly writing, the use of evidence from research is considered the vital task (Laureate Production, n.d.). These evidenced-based research, articles, and other publications can be found on many databases. Walden has 15 nursing databases for students to explore and find the articles needed for their coursework. I have tried the CINAHL Plus with Full Text and I find it user-friendly. I believe this database would also be useful to my colleagues and I would recommend it to them NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library.

Hello Class, I work in the labor and delivery unit, and currently, I am helping out in building the capacity of our neonatal unit following the exit of three staff through the ongoing Great Resignation. My primary role is educating parents of infants with low birth weight on Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC), an evidence-based practice linked to reduced mortality and morbidity rates (Mazumder et al., 2019). I searched the PubMed and ProQuest databases through the Walden University Library (n.d.) to identify two randomized clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of KMC in improving neonatal outcomes (Adejuyigbe et al., 2020; Mazumder et al., 2019). My experience using the PubMed and ProQuest databases was not only straightforward but also satisfying with PubMed having the largest number of free, full-text, peer-reviewed articles that can be accessed via the World Wide Web and also through the university library. Thus, I would recommend my colleagues interested in any free, nursing-specific peer-reviewed articles, which can be searched either through the basic or advanced search options. For neonatal nurses, PubMed and ProQuest databases contain numerous articles, including high-quality scientific articles on KMC NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library.

Hey Janelle,
I also work on a labor and delivery unit, but I also get floated to work on the mother/baby and newborn special care unit at times. Low birth weight babies can really raise the acuity level of your patient load, that’s for sure, and from experience, I know that it can add a lot of stress on the parents as well. I’m ashamed to say that I have never heard of Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC), so reading your article was extremely interesting. According to Adejuyigbe et al. (2020), the mortality rate of low birth weight infants was reduced by 40% when KMC is applied. It is so awesome that you are educating your patients on this.
When I did my search, I used the MEDLINE database. I thoroughly enjoyed this database because it was easy to use, and it allowed me to view the full text of articles. Full text is a hurge plus for me because nothing drives me more insane than when I think I find a good article but can only read the first paragraph or abstract. According to Dunn et al. (2017), MEDLINE is one of the most frequently used databases. I have never used the databases that you used, but after reading your discussion post, I will probably try it next time I do research.

Thank you Mckenzey for your response. I would say that every day represents an opportunity to learn a new thing and I am glad that I have brought the philosophy of Kangaroo Mother Care to your attention (Zaka et al., 2018). I agree with you that searching for peer-reviewed articles in the MEDLINE database is not only enjoyable but also allows scholars to apply the Boolean phrases when the search does not yield the target results (Walden University, 2021). What do you think about the Cochrane Library? I prefer using it when targeting RCTs and systematic reviews.

I enjoyed your post Janelle. I work on labor and delivery as well and what you are doing i think is amazing. My last baby was considered low birth weight and we had to have a lot of teaching. Although Ive heard of Kangaroo Mother Care I was never taught that as a mother. The bonding that KMC also provides can have positive impacts not just for baby but for mom as well. According to BMC Pediatrics KMC babies are described to be positive and have the potential to grow into strong healthy children.

Discussion Response for week 4
Although I don’t work in labor and delivery, I am on the fence about this issue. I had two C-sections from the start. I had pre eclampsia with my first child and my blood pressure could not take the stress on labor but I actually preferred to have a C-section instead of vaginal even before it was necessary. I know there are complications that can come with having a C-section but there are also other dangers associated with vaginal births as well. I have seen family members who have started with vaginal birth and went through a lot of pain for many hours with the end result having to be a C-sections. So, I am glad the option of C-section is available for those of us who really don’t care to have a vaginal birth or not.

Hi Blessing,
I really enjoyed your post. I am also pursuing a PMHNP career. I worked in a behavioral health hospital in the past. I know the challenges mental health professionals face. I know that it is even more challenging now with COVID. Increasingly, mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, as well as psychosis have been linked to the condition (Palmer, 2021).
I also thought that CINAHL Plus with Full Text, was very easy to use. I found it very easy to refine my search. Under Limit to, I was able to select full text and peer-reviewed scholarly journals only. And to make sure I was receiving only up-to-date publications. I was able to set the time frame of the publication dates.

Hi Blessings,
     I have found your post very interested. Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit our country, I have been holding how it has infected and killed people by following the numeral of patients and deaths using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
    They are enhancing the fight against COVID-19, and others also invite enhancements in the efforts directed towards managing lifestyle diseases. Possible public health strategies for this span boosting public awareness, appropriate follow-up strategies, and guaranteeing the services for health care offered to the population are of quality (Shinkafi & Ali, 2020). Pragmatic strategies for data and information management compete for a crucial role in this aspect. Consequently, the core of the planned program in investigating various editorials, I must take advantage of the Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) Plus with Full-Text database beforehand and throughout enjoyed it. MEDLINE full text is helpful and extremely valuable for our study. Agreeing to Walden University Library (n.d.), CINAHL Plus offers full text for numerous journals documented in CINAHL. These libraries allow us to focus our examinations on peer-reviewed, scholarly sources, surrounded by a specific period setting and specific records that take into consideration. Getting this capability throughout the investigation in this course is exceedingly beneficial.

The scholarly peer-reviewed article that sparked my interest discusses trends in emergency room visits related to mental health disorders and substance abuse.  I currently work for a company that focuses on reducing ER utilization for a specific population of patients.  We do this by evaluating causes for these ER visits, finding alternatives to utilizing the ER, helping to coordinate care when a patient has met obstacles, and finding creative ways to change patterns ingrained in the patient’s behavior.  While working towards this goal in the workplace, I’ve noticed significant trends of high ER utilizers for mental health conditions.  This article that I found by searching Medline with Full Text has supporting evidence to prove that a large number of ER visits are related to mental health disorders and this trend is rising.  According to Ayangbayi, Okunade, Karakus, and Nianogo (2017), ER visits for mental or substance use disorder increased from 27.9 per 1,000 in 2005 to 35.1 in 2011, and homeless persons and nursing home residents had the highest rate at 173.7 and 95.2 per 1,000 ER visits, respectively, in 2011.
When I began my search on Medline with Full Text, I entered “emergency room visits” in the first search field and then entered “mental health” or “mental illness” or “mental disorder” in the second search bar.  I also selected “peer-reviewed articles” and entered dates from 2017 through 2022 to find the most recent results.  This provided 106 different articles to choose from NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library. 
Medline with Full Text database has millions of articles in the life sciences with a concentration on biomedicine (Walden University Library, n.d.). I’ve used this database multiple times during previous scholarly writing assignments and find it easy to navigate and very pertinent to nursing/medical research.  The only difficulty using this database is that there are a variety of topic choices and a long list of articles if one does not narrow down their search by using specific keywords and putting a range of years to search from. Using this database gives the scholarly writer multiple sources that relate to the topic being researched.  Synthesis requires taking information from a variety of sources, evaluating that information, and forming ideas in an original way (Shellenbarger, 2016). I would recommend this database to peers because searching for peer-reviewed articles related to very specific medical/nursing topics is easy and allows the scholarly learner the right resources for synthesis to happen.

The peer-reviewed article I chose to cite focused on the use of peanut balls in reducing the length of labor.  This topic is important to me in my work as a Labor and Delivery nurse.  I was not aware of what a peanut ball was when I started working in labor and delivery almost two years ago.  I have used the peanut ball with patients on numerous occasions and have found that the use of the peanut-shaped ball in addition to frequent positioning has had a positive impact on the advancement of labor by the way of cervical change and fetal descent.  The primary outcome of the meta-analysis in the article I chose was the total length of labor with the use of a peanut ball in the intervention group and no peanut ball in the control group (Grenvik et al., 2019).  This study was looked at, in part, to measure the intervention in reducing the risks of maternal and neonatal complications caused by prolonged labor (Grenvik et al., 2019).  Thus, the article also looked at secondary outcomes such as the length of the first and second stages of labor, mode of delivery, and neonatal outcomes (Grenvik et al., 2019).  Although the study resulted in the need for more research, I found the research to be a notable cause for further investigation.
The database I chose to search for my article was CINAHL Plus with full text.  Honestly, in addition to its being the first site on the best bets list of the Walden University library’s 15 databases found for nursing (Walden University Library, n.d.), I chose this site because other colleagues also found this site to be helpful. Another reason I chose this site to find an article was due to the information provided by The Walden University library (n.d.) that the CINAHL database provided peer-reviewed articles from journals on nursing topics. I am new to the research process, but I had no difficulty navigating this site.  I used the Boolean phrase under the CINAHL plus and typed in labor and delivery AND peanut ball use in labor to search for articles.  I learned from a quick answer resource provided for my viewing in module three how to limit the search to find scholarly peer-reviewed articles (Walden University Library, n.d.).  This resource was also useful in providing tips for evaluation your resource and providing valuable information about what a journal should include such as listing two titles, volume and issue numbers, and page numbers (Walden University Library, n.d.).  I discovered the way to limit my search to full text, peer-reviewed scholarly journals easily with the CINAHL Plus database.
The only difficulty I had in my research process was not with the CINAHL database, but in the fact that I was only able to find one research article listed with the topic I chose.  I searched for articles related to peanut ball use in labor in the Medline database as well but found the same article.  I found Medline to be just as easy to navigate therefore I would recommend either of the databases to my colleagues.  These databases, in addition to the others listed in the “best bets” section of databases found for nursing in Walden University’s library, would be helpful to my colleagues in finding reputable, peer-reviewed, evidence-based research articles effortlessly (Walden University Library, n.d.).  I feel using the databases in the Walden online library will be useful for my colleagues and myself during our endeavors to become scholarly writers using research.

I currently work in an Urgent Care Clinic that offers primary care. Recently, there was some confusion as to billing practices for Durable Medical Equipment (DME) such as boots and braces. The issue was whether our patients with Medicaid would be expected to pay out of pocket for the equipment.
Using Medline, located through Walden’s library, I was able to research the term “Urgent Care Centers or Clinics”. I was able to locate an evidence-based research article that depicts similar issues with Orthopedic Clinics in Connecticut (Yousman et al, 2021). The article was able to encompass potential interventions to rectify the effects of the issue on patient outcomes in a means that could be helpful in the future for changing clinical practice (Al-Jundi & Sakka, 2017).
There were no notable difficulties experienced. Medline offers researchers the opportunity to search specific terms with the ability to link or differentiate within the search. I would recommend this database and deem it useful. Information is peer-reviewed, organized for ease in search by offering features such as minimizing available publications and publication dates. Researchers can review for key components of what the literature offers such as relevance and analysis of various topics which would be helpful to many researcher (Shellenbarger, 2016).

Recently, our pharmacology course was reminded of what a “scholarly article” consists of. It’s usually a full body of work that is written by experts on the topic. It oftentimes is based on research studies and evidence that has been peer-reviewed. The work itself is inclusive of an abstract, methods, and discussion section. It is important to note that examples such as Wikipedia are pointed out as non-scholarly literature (Brezgov, 2019).

      Titled “Improving Quality on the Telemetry Unit Back to Basics,” the article improves the telemetry unit (White, Brown & Fry, 2018). Peer-reviewed articles are typically the essential types of sources for research. To find this article, I used the CINAHL with Full-Text database. While searching for this article, I experienced difficulties with keywords. The CINAHL with Full Text has many articles on the same topic of telemetry. Therefore, I got very many articles before settling on this particular one. The other challenge I experienced while searching for this article was having issues with figuring out the reliability and relevance of the information in the peer-reviewed journal. 
     The CINAHL with the Full-Text database would be helpful to my colleagues. As a profession in nursing, it is essential to be up to date with information in the healthcare industry. The database provides the latest information on telemedicine, which would benefit my colleagues in the telemetry unit (Hopia & Heikkila, 2020). Overall, the database presents new knowledge to the nurses to maintain and improve what they already know—another reason why the database is valuable is that it provides full texts. Most of the other databases with similar articles provide an abstract, and the student is forced to purchase the rest of the article. This can be expensive for my colleagues and me. Therefore, the CINAHL conveniently helps search for valuable articles in our practice area for no charges.
      I would recommend this database to any scholar, researcher, or nurse seeking information. Most of the data is evidence-based articles essential in educating nurses on the actual interventions they can take to improve patient outcomes. Also, the database has up-to-date articles and is free of charge.

The peer review article I chose was non-adherence to hemodialysis treatment and how it relates to cardiovascular problems. Working with hemodialysis and cardiac units. I have seen a lot of non compliance with missed dialysis treatment, which leads to fluid overload and causes heart issues. The article talks about how patients with chronic kidney disease have a higher morbidity and mortality rate, due to the inherited risks associated with nephropathy (Dantas et.al., 2019). The occurence of extra weight gain has lead to and increase in morbidity and mortality to the patient that are non compliant with treatment.
I used CINAHL PLUS with full text to search for the article. I had some difficulty at first finding the article was a little difficult, but after typing in the basic search box it gave the options to view pdf or html format. This data base was easy to use once I found my article. I would recommend using it, because it gives the option to export, email, and help with citing the article. The Walden library assisted with finding the database through EBSCOhost  and provides evidenced-base information with up to date data (Walden University Library n.d. 2019).

Home Health Care
 
The peer review article I chose is related to home health care. As a case manager, part of my job is to arrange home health care.   I chose this article as I have a long history as a home health care nurse and plan to continue in home health as an ARNP.  Home health care (HHC) is an emerging field with respect to improving transitions of care and post-discharge outcomes (Sterling, et al, 2020).  The purpose of Home Health Care is to support the transition from hospital or rehab home to home. The Future of Home Health is transforming and evolving to meet the needs of patients (Landers, et.al., 2016).  According to Romangnoli, Handler, & Hocheiser, 2013, “Home care decreases costs, improves health outcomes, and reduces hospital stays”.
The database I used to research my article was Google Scholar.  I chose Google Scholar as it is quite easy to use, and I have used these many times throughout the educational career.  Google scholar searches can lead to hundreds of relevant “scholarly” articles.  One of my favorite features of Google Scholar is it provides library links, open access to numerous journals including nursing and medical journals, and most conveniently, formatted citations.  Although Google Scholar is easy to use, it does have a few disadvantages, such as not every article is scholarly.  The reader should be cautious as to what is and what is not scholarly.  Also, some articles only provide an abstract and retrieving a full text article will cost you.

Hi Quenia,
Thank you for sharing your post, COVID 19 has been devastated the American people morally , socially and physically, it is more than a psychosocial disease. The CDC reports on mental health has been increasing during this pandemic, it has been detrimental to American Citizens. Many people had been having anxiety and were depressed because of many reasons. There is a lot of articles on mental health issues, I think that one of the reason you can locate the articles easily. As far Walden Library, it gives you more clues on what to look for. it is not too broad when searching for a specific topic and also the university faculty has control over the search. They will know whether or not if scholarly sources have been used or a different source. NURS 6003 Week 4 Discussion: Using the Walden Library
