Student-Led Interest Groups: An Adjunct to Learner-Centered Nursing Education

Lim, F., & Nadeau, C. (2016). Nursing Education Perspectives, 37(4), 232-235. 10.5480/14-1495
The current emphasis to make nurses full partners in health care dialogue, education, research, practice, and policy-making has made nursing education more challenging and exciting. Competing themes in an already saturated curriculum allow little room for adding more content to formal teaching-learning activities. Well-organized student-led interest groups are an excellent avenue for conducting focused extracurricular offerings that allow students to exercise their leadership and organizational skills, advocate for academic excellence, and add specialty topics missing in the generalist curriculum. As an adjunct to the formal curriculum, professional development events organized by student-led interest groups promote student engagement, lifelong learning, and learner-centered education.

Mental health concerns among African immigrants

Venters, H., Adekugbe, O., Massaquoi, J., Nadeau, C., Saul, J., & Gany, F. (2011). Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health, 13(4), 795-797. 10.1007/s10903-010-9357-1
African immigrants represent a rapidly expanding group of immigrants in the United States. In New York City, Africans constitute the fastest growing segment of immigrants but the needs and practices of African immigrants in the U.S. remain poorly understood. A community based organization (CBO) serving African immigrants in Staten Island, NY began a health screening program in 2008 with the goal of promoting access to primary care. Over 18 months, 296 visits were recorded at African Refuge health screenings, representing a total of 87 people who averaged just over 3 visits per person. The screenings identified mental health among the top three medical problems of clients but referral to mental health services was rare. Dedicated services are required to better screen for mental health concerns and refer African immigrants to mental health care.

Treat DVT with Low Molecular Weight Heparin

Nadeau, C., & Varrone, J. (2003). Nurse Practitioner, 28(10), 22-29.
Each year, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) affects two million Americans, and pulmonary embolism (PE) affects 600,000. Traditional treatment requires hospitalization to receive continuous intravenous unfractionated heparin (UFH), which has substantial pharmacokinetic limitations. Low molecular weight heparins have overcome many of these limitations, resulting in a predictable anticoagulant response without the need for laboratory monitoring or dosage adjustment.

Warfarin toxicity. A case study.

The challenges of oral anticoagulation

Nadeau, C., Alpert, B., Costantino, T., McGinn, R., Coyne, M., Ahern, K., Hudson, L., & Celardo-Giannone, L. (2000). Patient Care, 34(23), 33-49.
Warfarin therapy is underused for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation. A clearer understanding of warfarin's risk-benefit profile will enable you to prescribe it safely and appropriately.
