A panel of clinical experts at ANPD Annual Convention shares innovative ways to support nurses along their professional journey, cultivate leaders, and build resiliency.

Nurse leaders strive to ensure nurses—from newly licensed to experienced—have the resources and support to excel in their practice. Yet, 50%1 of novice nurses commit errors in care and nurse turnover rates are rising, especially among new RNs (23.9%2) who often lack professional skills, competence, and engagement to deliver optimal patient care. At the same time, nurse turnover costs $4.4-$7M per hospital annually.3

Sponsored by

When it comes to paying for healthcare costs, consumers want three things: affordable monthly payment options (60%), clear communication (58%), and transparency around out-of-pocket costs (55%), according to a recent survey of 1,000 consumers commissioned by AccessOne.

Key findings from the survey include the following:

  • More than half (57%) of consumers are concerned about their ability to pay a medical bill of $1,000 or less.
  • Sixty-two percent want to discuss a payment plan or financing options prior to a procedure.
  • More than half of consumers (58%) delayed medical care to avoid a healthcare bill—and one-in-three have done so in the past year.
  • Consumers continue to shop around for care to get the most value for their healthcare dollar. Seventy-one percent of respondents would shop around for care, and 36% already have.

Negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d): a review of the evidence

Sponsored by
Smith and Nephew

While a substantial evidence base of high-level studies supports the use of NPWT in a wide range of wound types, less is known about the effects of NPWTi-d (a modification of traditional NPWT involving the instillation of saline, an antiseptic, or antibiotic into a sealed wound). This systematic review of the literature comparing NPWTi-d with NPWT summarizes the results of the highest quality studies (Level 1) that were identified and provides recommendations from consensus groups and health regulators.

Of the studies published on NPWTi-d up to July 3, 2020, five Level 1 studies were identified in the systematic literature review, while another 120 studies were identified that were lower-quality evidence. Among other key findings, the review concludes that there are no statistically significant differences in clinical outcomes (p>0.05) in Level 1 studies.
