APTR recognizes Loyola nursing professor for novel teaching model Dr.

Titled Loyola University Nursing Middle, Andresen’s research study examines the curriculum at the Niehoff College of Nursing in conjunction with undergraduate nursing learners’ experiences at the school’s community-based, faculty-managed nursing middle, Loyola University Nursing Center . Andresen reports that hanging out at the LUNC allowed college students signed up for the baccalaureate nursing program’s senior level community wellness nursing course to serve their community as they received quality educational encounters. The LUNC can be an innovative, cost-effective model for delivering health education to a big network of community organizations, said Andresen. Furthermore to health teaching at community sites, nursing learners provide over 1,000 home visits annually to chronically ill adults living near Loyola’s Lake Shore campus.His effectiveness had derived not really from rushing between sufferers but from knowing them therefore well that his charting was effortless and fast. But he became distracted suddenly, losing his grasp on the details of his sufferers’ lives. He slumped around, shirt half-untucked, perpetually pulling a yellowed handkerchief from his pocket to wipe his perspiring forehead. Everyone concerned he was ill. His problem, however, turned out to be the electronic wellness record . Investigating the root causes, Wachter discovers design flaws, such as for example defaulting to certain systems for medicine dosing and alerts rendered meaningless by their sheer number. But he concludes that the mistake stemmed much less from the EHR itself than from its results on our collective psychology.
