Integrating the Transitional Care Model into Nurse Practitioner Curriculato Improve Outcomes for High-Risk Older Adults

Managing transitions in care for older adults and their family caregivers, no matter the care setting, is especially challenging in a rapidly changing health care system. Patient discharges which typically require prescription writing, discharge summary creation, and team consultations for home care entail more complex coordination and planning.

Educators and researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing) share practices in a new article in the Journal of Professional Nursing describing how the Transitional Care Model (TCM) has successfully been incorporated into nurse practitioner curricula to address this issue. The article explains how the TCM’s evidence-based interventions have helped better prepare nurse practitioners to engage acute care providers to more effectively manage the care coordination of older adults with complex care needs.

Researchers Develop New Method To Identify Potential Stroke Therapies

Researchers have identified uric acid as a potential therapy to enhance recovery from acute ischemic stroke using a new method for conducting preclinical animal research. In the study, researchers from the National Institutes of Health’s Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN)(link is external) rigorously tested the effectiveness of six novel therapies in reducing ischemic brain injury in rodents using strategies normally reserved for clinical studies in humans. The results suggest that uric acid warrants further investigation in additional studies, and potentially human clinical trials. The study was published in Science Translational Medicine.

Ischemic stroke, a leading cause of disability and death in the United States, occurs when a blood clot or other blockage in an artery cuts off blood supply to the brain. Current treatments are aimed at removing the clot by dissolving it wi

Substance Abuse in Pregnancy Doubles Cardiovascular Risk

Pregnant women with a history of substance abuse face a dramatically increased risk of death from heart attack and stroke during childbirth when compared with women without history of substance abuse, a new Smidt Heart Institute study shows.

These findings are published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Advances.

"This telling research shows that substance use during pregnancy doubled cardiovascular events and maternal mortality during delivery," said Martha Gulati, MD, senior and corresponding author of the study and the associate director of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center in the Department of Cardiology in the Smidt Heart Institute. "Substance abuse also doubled the risk of acute heart failure."

The substances studied in the research included cocaine, opioids, alcohol, amphetamine/methamphetamine, and cannabis. Each substance carried a different a

Paging Dr. ChatGPT: How These Penn Researchers Are Using AI to Make Healthcare Better

Note: This article was written by a real person.

If you ask the artificial intelligence text generator called ChatGPT how it can help in medicine, it will answer you. “ChatGPT can be a valuable tool in various medical applications,” before providing a 10-point, and fairly detailed, explanation of its practical uses in health care. (Penn’s David Asch, MD, asked it this exact question.)

But rather than taking ChatGPT’s word for it, some researchers at Penn, like Samiran Mukherjee, MBBS, chief fellow in Gastroenterology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, are studying it.

“I don’t think artificial intelligence technology is going away,” said Mukherjee. “It behooves us to understand both how medical professionals can use it to support their work and how patients may choose to interact with it. I’m excited by the potential of artificial intelligence, and
