A new strategy in neurocritical care nurse continuing stroke education: A hybrid simulation pilot study (Open Access Article)

The latest article in our open access article series features several University of Missouri faculty and staff:

  1. Robert Bell is a Physician Assistant in neurological surgery and serves as a clinical instructor at the School of Medicine.
  2. Melody Burks is a service line specialist nurse in the neuroscience intensive care unit.
  3. Dr. Premkumar Nattanmai is an assistant professor for clinical neurology, and co-director of the neuroscience intensive care unit.

This research team’s article, A new strategy in noncritical nurse care stroke education: a hybrid simulation pilot study, was published in Electronic Physician in May 2017. Electronic Physician is an open access journal, peer-reviewed journal, that publishes articles in all areas of medical and health sciences. This completely open access journal immediately makes their articles available upon publication, which allows for maximum sharing ability on the new strategy for stroke education this article discusses.

This article discusses a new hybrid simulation approach for education of neurosciences nurses involved in the car of neurocritical care patients. “Simulation creates a learning environment that allows for improving technical and non-technical skills, improving efficiency, practicing rare life-threatening emergencies, and fostering improved attitudes toward teamwork.” This combination of lecture and high-fidelity manikin simulation significantly improved nurses’ understanding and managing of patients in the neuroscience intensive care unit.

On Display in the Health Sciences Library – The Art of Hope Martin

For Hope Martin, pastels “have a messy, immediate result” that she finds appealing. In her pastel paintings, the artist creates close- ups of animals, people, and objects, inviting us to examine the details along with her. See the distinctive stripes of a tabby cat looking back at you. Follow the soft lines of a young girl sneaking a read in the dark. Glory in the glowing ruby red of berries dangling in the sunlight.

These works and more will be on display at the library through the fall semester.

Michael Spears Receives 20 years of Service Certificate

Last week, we were honored to celebrate Michael Spears and his 20 years of service at the University of Missouri. During the celebration, Michael was presented his 20 years of service certificate to commemorate his time and hard work at Mizzou. Anyone who uses our health sciences library website has benefited from Mike’s skills where his programming helps get our web visitors to the information they need smoothly and quickly.

All of our staff rely on Mike for his patient and effective approach to troubleshooting.  He has a special gift for working with people at all levels of computer expertise, and never talks down to someone who knows less than he does.

We want to congratulate Mike on his 20 years and thank him for making a difference in quality of their computing experience for both library staff and library users.

Cycle of Success: Andrew Ray

Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

 

Andrew Ray is a Master of Health Administration graduate student in the Department Health Management and Information (HMI). For his capstone project, Andrew worked to sign up research faculty for ORCID IDs. Part of this project was to analyze those who already used ORCID, and as the project progressed, to see who had signed up after the capstone started. Librarians Diane Johnson and Taira Meadowcroft, and Graduate Library Assistants, Rachel Alexander and Gemille Purnell, collaborated on thie project.

“I was involved in a capstone project with several classmates from the HMI department that involved identifying methods for capturing research productivity. The Health Sciences Library staff not only connected us with resources to do this, they also helped us collect and analyze the data relating to our project. Diane, Taira, and the other staff we worked with were always quick to respond to our requests and eager to provide additional expertise where needed. They are clearly passionate about helping their colleagues across the School of Medicine and related schools. I would encourage anyone with research needs to take advantage of the excellent resources the library has to offer. Our project absolutely benefited from their involvement.”

Construction on the Health Sciences Library 2nd Floor

Please pardon our noise the week of August 7th while we undergo a bit of a makeover. We are excited to announce that we will be turning an office space on the 2nd floor into new space for our users! The funding is from a combination of student fee funds and library gift funds.

Starting the week of August 7th, Campus Facilities will be taking down a portion of the wall to the left of the back wall Art Display, in order to create a wider opening to new study space. They will lay new carpet borders, and give the walls a new coat of paint and bring in study furnishings. This new study space will house PBL workstations from the newest PBL labs, as well as some new seating.

We are thrilled for this new study space, and we hope you will be too!
