Nursing Review




Healthy Year ahead Turning New Year’s resolutions into healthy action. Each year, many of us get to February and find our good intentions for changing old habits or creating healthy new ones have waned or failed to get off the ground. This edition will focus on articles looking at how to revive these resolutions in areas such as exercise, nursing humour, safe patient handling and injury prevention, nurses and addiction, health screening and nutrition.

Nursing Education / Leadership & Management Turning our attention to career and workforce issues – and in particular, professional development – Nursing Review covers topics such as career pathways, urban and rural nursing, on-the-job training, and postgraduate study. We also delve into management best practice, interview inspirational nursing leaders, and look at nursing models of leadership.



International Nurses Day International Nurses Day is a time to honour the hard work and dedication of our nurses. Nursing Review will mark the occasion by focusing on articles that highlight the work of nurses excelling in their roles and by covering stories of innovation, celebration, and achievement. This issue is ideal to publicly thank your nursing staff for their dedication and loyalty or to congratulate them on achieving specific milestones in your organisation.

Child & Youth Health / Wound Care and Infection Control Since Florence Nightingale wrote the first nursing text book and the first germ theory was expounded, infection control and wound care have been key components of nursing. Nursing Review will focus on the latest research and developments in this area. In the second focus, we talk to nurses working with children and adolescents, covering trends, innovations, and highlighting the good work done in children’s health.

June/July Long-term Conditions in the Community / aged Care With around 63 per cent of deaths attributed to chronic heartfelt difference conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases, Nursing Review explores the trends in combating long-term conditions at hospital, at home, and in rest homes. In the closely linked Aged Care focus, we report on the latest best practice and innovation in aged care and palliative care to better understand the unique challenges of caring for the elderly. FOCUS n Long-Term Conditions

Long-Term Conditions FOCUS: An estimated two out of three New Zealand adults have at least one long-term condition. In this edition, we focus on the nursing role in helping patients better manage life-impacting chronic illness.

Anxious patients with chest pain who used to wait up to 100 days for review at Counties Manukau District Health Board are now being seen in less than 20 days. Nearly half of heart attack patients who used to wait up to six months for a cardiologist review are now seeing a nurse practitioner or CNS instead. FIONA CASSIE talks to cardiac nurse practitioner Andy McLachlan about the difference nurse-led clinics are making.



he heart is the source of many clichés. But it’s clear from talking with cardiac nurse practitioner Andy McLachlan that specialising in this “muscular organ” requires more than just clinical expertise. Expert clinician you have to be, but also educator, motivator, and even marriage guidance counselor. These are all things that good nurses excel at, so when McLachlan started on his nurse practitioner pathway last decade he saw real opportunities for nursing to become much more involved in managing people after heart attacks. That was back around 2004 when Middlemore had only one cardiology clinical nurse specialist working in cardiac outpatient services, and two cardiac nurse specialists (Andy and fellow future NP June Poole) working in primary health. Middlemore also had “embarrassingly long” waiting times for a cardiologist review after a heart attack – with the understandably frightened and concerned people waiting up to six months to talk to an expert about their heart health. “That’s long enough for you to develop new bad habits – like I’m not going to exercise because I’m frightened I’m going to have another heart attack,” says McLachlan. “Or I’m not sure about these pills, so I’m just going to stop (taking) them all.” The waiting lists were a driver in 2007 for the cardiology team to propose stepping up a notch

beyond nurses offering cardiac rehab education clinics to support (initially) its two new NPs, and then (latterly) suitably qualified and credentialed nurse specialists, to offer comprehensive outpatient assessment clinics. Now Middlemore’s cardiac outpatient service has two cardiology NPs, two clinical nurse specialists, two specialty nurses and four other RNs working with the team, providing cutting-edge clinics in acute coronary syndrome follow-up and chest pain; plus specialist NP clinics in heart failure (Poole) and post-valve replacement care (McLachlan). The impact on waiting lists has been marked (see sidebar) and this confirms McLachlan’s belief in what nursing could provide.. Originally from Glasgow, McLachlan says as a male nurse in Scotland in the 1980s your only options starting out were male urology or general surgery, but he always had a hankering for coronary care. He also had a craving for warmer climes, so in 1990 he went to America “chasing the sun” while nursing in a variety of coronary care wards in Florida, California and Texas. “I basically had a six-year summer,” he says. Along the way, he inevitably met some Kiwis and curiosity brought him to New Zealand in 2000. Now married with three children aged one to five, he isn’t looking to move again. continued on page 6 >>

Infection Control/Wound Care

Infection Control/Wound Care Keeping infection at bay and tending wounds – some of the basic tenets of nursing. This edition, we feature articles on campaigns against bacterial infection and avoidable wounds, plus nurses treating wounds with science and sensitivity.

Rheumatic Fever:

What is it and what does it do?

» Rheumatic fever is triggered by a ‘strep’ throat – otherwise known as a Strep A or group A streptococcus (GAS) infection – with 10–20 per cent of sore throats caused by GAS. » GAS is very infectious and can be transferred through droplets from coughs and sneezes (or indirectly through droplets contaminating food). » Most ‘strep’ throat infections get better without developing into rheumatic fever, but for a small number of people, it triggers a strong immune system reaction leading to inflammation of the heart, joints, brain, and skin. » Rheumatic fever is nearly always preventable with early detection and treatment of strep throat with a ten-day course of antibiotics. » About 70 per cent of children who get rheumatic fever will have some heart damage, and if the inflammation scars the heart valves, the person can develop rheumatic heart disease and may require heart valve replacement surgery. » After having rheumatic fever, children must have painful monthly intramuscular penicillin shots until they are 21 to prevent further bouts of rheumatic fever (or longer, if they develop rheumatic heart disease).

The sore throat that can break hearts

Just a sore throat … too many families now know some sore throats last a lifetime. FIONA CASSIE talks with some of the passionate pioneers of school throat-swabbing campaigns as the national Rheumatic Fever Prevention programme rolls out.


elen Herbert can still remember sending her son off to school that day with just a sore throat. By the time he got off the school bus that afternoon, she knew something else was definitely wrong. She was right. He had rheumatic fever, leaving a mother feeling livid and let down by a health sector that hadn’t warned her how devastating “just a sore throat” can be. She has been a passionate rheumatic fever campaigner ever since – first in her home community of Whangaroa, then wider Northland and beyond, and this year, she became the national co-coordinator for the Ministry of Health’s Rheumatic Fever Prevention Programme.

It all began with rheumatic fever levels peaking at internationally high levels at the turn of the millennium in the small Far North community of Whangaroa. Helen Herbert’s son was eight when he got rheumatic fever. He is now 21 and the family has this year just celebrated him being given the all clear to no longer have the painful monthly antibiotic injections required to keep further rheumatic fever, and the risk of major heart damage, at bay. “It is very traumatic for the kids when they first start – and for their families,” says Herbert. “My son packed his bags heaps of time to run up the hill. He told me he was running away from home and he’d come back later on.” Herbert says it was devastating in those early days realising just how many of the community’s children were getting rheumatic fever and all for the lack of treating a sore throat.

A driven community

How severe is the problem?

» New Zealand’s rheumatic fever rates are now 14 times higher than any other OECD country. » One third of New Zealand children have a 1 in 250 chance of a preventable damaged heart by the end of school. » The rates of rheumatic fever for Māori and Pasifika children aged between 5 and 14 are between 20 and 40 times higher than other Kiwi children of the same age. » The rates in high risk areas are thought to be a combination of crowded living conditions, difficulties accessing health care, and lack of awareness that ‘sore throats matter’. » Heart Foundation guidelines recommends throat swabbing any Maori or Pacific patient aged between 3 and 45 who presents with a sore throat and prescribing them antibiotics straight away if they meet strep throat criteria. » A research project in Northland in 2010 scanned the hearts of 636 Kaitaia children and found seven with previously undetected rheumatic heart disease and 13 with inconclusive or borderline rheumatic heart disease. » There are around 140 deaths per year from rheumatic heart disease.

Nursing Review series Infection Control/Wound Care 2012

December/January On the Ward / E-health Nursing Review wraps up the year by following nurses onto the ward. We explore the working lives of nurses in our major public hospitals, private hospitals, and specialist units, general practices, and those in the community. Nurses have precious little time on their hands, so we summarise the best of the year’s nursing news and look back on the obstacles the New Zealand nursing sector had to overcome. As a secondary focus, we explore the innovative world of e-health. FOCUS n Celebrating Innovation

Telehealth research:

empowering patients and freeing up nurses? Can telehealth monitors in the home help nurses and doctors care for more patients with chronic conditions? Preliminary results from the country’s second telehealth research project – ‘ASSET’ – indicate the answer is probably “yes”. FIONA CASSIE reports.


health provider Ngāti Porou Hauora. Funding for the trial was provided by the Primary Health Care Innovations Fund. Parsons says the rationale for the trial was the rapidly ageing population and the resulting increase in demand for chronic care management. Using telehealth technology is seen as a way of promoting self-management and improving the case management of chronic care patients, while at the same time making better use of limited health professional resources. He says the two DHB specialist services were chosen for the randomised, controlled trial as their “usual care” standards were basically at the “cutting edge of evidence-based practice”. “If you were looking for the perfect services these were the perfect services.” There was a need for a rural primary health study, and Ngāti Porou Hauora was seen as an obvious choice because of its strong rural nursing model. The trial was clinician-directed, with the health professionals selecting the equipment and developing the clinical processes for gathering and monitoring patient data. Some initial hiccups with the chosen technology saw some participants pull out and some trust lost, but Parsons repeats that qualitative results showed that patients and health professionals had responded positively to the telemonitoring intervention. He says in some large overseas studies the standard of the care service is poor, and therefore telemonitoring meets with a positive reaction that is highly statistically significant. For ASSET, the baseline standard of care was high. Parson says the “raw data is tending in the right direction”, indicating a positive impact overall, but the most significant finding for Parsons is that telemonitoring appears to allow health professionals to work with more clients with no detrimental impact on the clients already under their care. “Let’s say the intervention has no impact on hospitalisation rates, the satisfaction levels for the clients are the same and there’s no difference between the (control and telemonitoring) groups. However, a Matthew nurse practitioner or nurse specialist Parsons, a worked with 80 or 90 clients instead co-principal of 40 or 50 clients. “If we had no investigator of ASSET. difference all in the outcomes but we could use staff more efficiently, then that would be a positive outcome.”

ith telehealth, nurses can encourage patients to be more hands-on with their care, while the nurses themselves literally can be more hands-off. And according tow Matthew Parsons, one of the coprincipal investigators of the telehealth ASSET (Application of Self-management Systems Trial), patients and nurses have responded positively to it. The research project’s purpose was to see whether home telemonitoring could help more people with long-term conditions continue to live well at home. In the just-completed trial, more than 90 heart failure, respiratory and patients with multiple chronic conditions were trained to measure their own “vital obs” and then send the results via the internet to their nurse’s computer screen using a hand-held hub device. The health professional group found telemonitoring to be effective (by freeing up time) and it altered their practice so they could manage a higher-need client group. “Which was exactly what we were hoping to achieve,” says Parsons, who last year became the country’s first professor of gerontology nursing, a joint appointment between The University of Auckland and Waikato District Health Board. ASSET was a joint initiative between The University of Auckland, working with Auckland District Health Board’s heart failure team, Counties Manukau DHB’s respiratory team and rural East Coast iwi

Facts at a glance about ASSET (Application of Self-management Systems Trial) Primary Health Care Innovations Fund joint research project by The University of Auckland in league with: n Auckland DHB: 98 heart failure patients (48 randomised to telemonitoring intervention for up to three months). n Counties Manukau DHB: 8 respiratory failure patients (24 randomised to telemonitoring for up to four months). n Ngāti Porou Hauora:25 patients with multiple conditions (the majority with diabetes). Post design so no control group and all using telemonitoring (19 using equipment for six months or more.)

ASSET equipment » High-quality weight scales » Blood pressure and heart-rate monitor » Oxygen saturation probe » Blood sugar monitor for diabetics » Hub to record and transfer data through phone line to website Self-measurements Participants regularly measured observations relevant to their condition including: » oxygen saturation rates; » blood pressure and heart rates; » weight; » blood sugar results.

Reporting Results (and answers to three to four open questions pertinent to their condition) were sent via the hub to be monitored during the week by the patient’s clinical team. Results were reviewed as falling into either “green” (stable and requiring

no action), or “red” (results outside set parameters), or “black” (no results recorded) and requiring nurse follow-up.

Sample open questions on the hub » How are you feeling today? Same as/better than/worse than yesterday? » Have you taken your medication today? » Is your breathing more difficult today? » Have you got more swelling? » Is your blood sugar high? What do you think contributed to that? » Are you more tired?

Quantitative research data collected Baseline surveys of patients followed up at three months and six months, including Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Selfefficacy Survey, Self Care of Heart Failure (SCFI) index, Saint George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) and Self Care of Diabetes Index (SCDI). Preliminary analysis indicated trends toward modest or no improvement for telemonitoring over the “usual care” control group. Costs: initial findings showed potential to increase client caseload caseload and potentially lower hospital-based costs while the client was using the equipment, but technological issues reduced trust in telecare equipment. Still to come is in-depth analysis of first and second trial results, costs, health-related quality of life, plus hospital admission and ED attendance data.
