RESUMO

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The current review describes the role of the cardio-oncology nurse and the need for personalized heart failure care for the patient with cancer. RECENT FINDINGS: It is a new role whereby cardiology or heart failure nurses care for patients with cancer who develop cardiotoxicity or cardiovascular diseases, either during the cancer therapy or in a later stage. Inter-disciplinary approach is important for individualized early treatment, shortened interruptions to cancer therapy, and irreversible cardiovascular injury prevention. Nurses have a key role in early evaluation and quality control of the care provided. This is a quite new clinical area and not much evidence exists for the development of clinical guidelines and pathways to support clinicians. More trials are needed for the development of clinical recommendations.

RESUMO

AIMS: Injectable medicines are increasingly used to manage risk factors for cardiovascular (CV) events, such as dyslipidaemia and diabetes. These include proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Little is known about perceptions of injectable therapies among CV healthcare professionals (HCPs). This study explores their views to identify relevant facilitators and barriers to the use of injectables with CV benefit. METHODS AND RESULTS: A 22-question survey was distributed internationally via online channels. In total, 192 anonymous responses were received (43.7% physicians, 32.6% nurses, 16.8% pharmacists, 6.8% others). Among respondents with experience of these medicines, 69.1% had used an injectable PCSK9 inhibitor and 67.0% had used an injectable GLP-1 receptor agonist. Commonly raised issues were resource problems (36.5%), lack of knowledge among colleagues (32.3%), paperwork (32.3%), and lack of patient knowledge (28.1%). Key barriers respondents felt made patients decline these treatments were fear of injection (56.6%), lack of awareness or education (26.4%), and administration issues (15.1%); potential reasons for discontinuation included side effects (46.4%), perceived lack of benefit (28.6%), and local reactions (21.4%). The main topics around injectables requiring further support included managing non-adherent patients (16.2%), troubleshooting with patients (16.2%), and educating colleagues about injectables (12.2%). Preferred educational methods to support HCPs were face-to-face training (43.5%) and online learning (26.1%); favoured formats were based on role playing and case studies. CONCLUSION: Healthcare professionals highlighted various potential barriers to initiation, continuation, and adherence with injectable therapies in CV medicine. Although some require healthcare system changes, many could be addressed through simple measures based primarily on enhanced training and support for patients and HCPs.

RESUMO

Patients with heart failure (HF) who contract SARS-CoV-2 infection are at a higher risk of cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Regardless of therapeutic attempts in COVID-19, vaccination remains the most promising global approach at present for controlling this disease. There are several concerns and misconceptions regarding the clinical indications, optimal mode of delivery, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines for patients with HF. This document provides guidance to all healthcare professionals regarding the implementation of a COVID-19 vaccination scheme in patients with HF. COVID-19 vaccination is indicated in all patients with HF, including those who are immunocompromised (e.g. after heart transplantation receiving immunosuppressive therapy) and with frailty syndrome. It is preferable to vaccinate against COVID-19 patients with HF in an optimal clinical state, which would include clinical stability, adequate hydration and nutrition, optimized treatment of HF and other comorbidities (including iron deficiency), but corrective measures should not be allowed to delay vaccination. Patients with HF who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 need to continue precautionary measures, including the use of facemasks, hand hygiene and social distancing. Knowledge on strategies preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection (including the COVID-19 vaccination) should be included in the comprehensive educational programmes delivered to patients with HF.

RESUMO

Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) represent a severe systemic threat to patients admitted in ICUs and contribute to increased mortality, prolonged length of stay in ICUs, and increased costs. The majority of CLABSIs are preventable. The current systematic review aimed to investigate the effectiveness of educational methods on CLABSI rates in adult ICUs. A systematic literature search was conducted using the electronic databases of Medline, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) Plus, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews for studies published from the beginning of 1995 to March 2020. The terms used for the search were as follows: central venous catheters, infection, central line-associated bloodstream infections, intensive care unit, and education intervention in all possible combinations and using the word 'and' between them. Data were extracted independently and crosschecked by two authors using a standard data collection form. The quality of the studies included in the review was assessed using the Methodological Index for Non-randomized Studies (MINORS). The current systematic review included 27 interventional studies of central line insertion or maintenance or both in adult ICU settings with documentation of the CLABSI incidence expressed per 1,000 catheter days. A large deviation between the length of time and type of educational interventions was found. Statistical significance was found in all studies (except one) in terms of CLABSI reduction despite the large variation of the length or the type of the educational intervention. Continuing education on infection prevention may be necessary to maintain the post-intervention results and improve clinical outcomes.

RESUMO

Supportive care may have significant input into the treatment of patients with heart failure (HF). Support, understanding and being treated as a whole and unique person are vital for patients with HF. In order to develop a person-centred program, it is important to know patients' needs from their perspectives. The aim of the current review and meta-synthesis was to explore the needs of patients with HF from their perspective. A qualitative review was conducted using the keywords: ("needs" OR "need") AND ("heart failure") AND ("qualitative") in four databases. Pre-defined inclusion and exclusion criteria were set. The 'Consolidated criteria for reporting qualitative studies' item checklist was used to assess the research methodologies of the included studies. A "thematic synthesis" methodological approach was used: (1) Line by line coding of the findings from primary studies. (2) The resulting codes were organized into related areas thus building descriptive themes. (3) Analytical themes were developed. Eleven articles were included in the present review. The results from the meta-synthesis extracted five different categories covering patents' needs: Self-management, palliative care, supportive care, social support and continuing person-centred care. The need for continuing empowerment and support to meet those needs was also identified, revealing the core theme: 'Wind beneath my wings'. The meta-synthesis quotations highlighted the necessity for dynamic and interactive continuing person-centred care focusing on the ongoing patients' needs through the HF trajectory. Giving more emphasis to the human dimension and holistic approach of patients with HF, along with cardiology medicine development might be a key factor in improving clinical outcomes and health related quality of life.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT: Frailty is a health condition leading to many adverse clinical outcomes. The relationship between frailty and advanced age, multimorbidity and disability has a significant impact on healthcare systems. Frailty increases cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality both in patients with or without known CV disease. Though the recognition of this additional risk factor has become increasingly clinically relevant in CV diseases, uncertainty remains about operative definitions, screening, assessment, and management of frailty. Since the burdens of frailty components and domains may vary in the various CV diseases and clinical settings, the relevance of specific frailty-related aspects may be different. Understanding these issues may allow general cardiologists a clearer focus on frailty in CV diseases and thereby make more tailored clinical decisions and therapeutic choices in outpatients. Guidance on identification and management of frailty are sparse and an international consensus document on frailty in general cardiology is lacking. Moreover, new options linked with eHealth are going to better define and manage frailty. This consensus document on definition, assessment, clinical implications, and management of frailty provides an input to integrate strategies pre- and post-acute CV events with a comprehensive view including out of hospital, office-based diagnostic and therapeutic choices, and based on a multidisciplinary team approach (general cardiologists, nurses, and general practitioners).

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: While breastfeeding self-efficacy (BSES) is an important modifiable determinant of breastfeeding, a structured assessment is not standard practice in Cyprus. We assessed the Greek version of the Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Scale (BSES-SF), including its predictive validity in terms of Breastfeeding (BF) and Exclusive Breastfeeding (EBF) up to the sixth month. METHODS: A methodological study with longitudinal design among 586 mother-infant dyads, as part of the "BrEaST Start in Life" project. BSES was assessed 24-48 h after birth and at the first month. Breastfeeding status was assessed at the clinic, the 1st, 4th and 6th month. The association between BSES and breastfeeding was estimated in logistic regression models and its diagnostic ability in ROC analysis. RESULTS: With Mean = 3.55 (SD = 0.85), BSES was moderate, and lower among Cypriot women, primiparas and those who delivered by Cesarean Section (C/S). There was good internal consistency across the 14 items (Cronbach's α = 0.94) while factor analysis revealed a two-factor structure. BSES scores were higher among mothers who initiated exclusive breastfeeding (M = 3.92, SD = 0.80) compared to breastfeeding not exclusively (M = 3.29, SD = 0.84) and not breastfeeding (M = 3.04, SD = 1.09; p-value < 0.001). There was a stepwise association with exclusivity (40.5% in the highest vs 7.9% lowest quartile of self-efficacy). The association between in-hospital BSES and long-term EBF persisted in multivariable models. Women in the upper quartile of BSES at 48 h were more likely to breastfeed exclusively by adjOR = 5.3 (95% CI 1.7-17.1) at the 1st and adjOR = 13.7 (95% CI 2.7-68.6) at the 4th month. Similar associations were observed between self-efficacy at the 1st month and BF at subsequent time-points. High first month BSES (> 3.96 as per ROC) had 58.9% positive and 79.6% negative predictive value for breastfeeding at 6 months which reflects higher sensitivity but lower specificity. CONCLUSIONS: The Greek version of BSES-SF showed good metric properties (construct, know-group, concurrent and predictive validity). In the absence of community support structures or programmes in Cyprus, prevalence of breastfeeding remains low. This suggests a need for policy, educational and community support interventions, including the systematic use of BSES scale as a screening tool to identify those at higher risk for premature BF discontinuation.

RESUMO

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: COVID-19 has permeated the very essence of human existence and society and disrupted healthcare systems. The attrition stemming from this highly contagious disease particularly affects those rendered vulnerable by age and infirmity, including those with underlying cardiovascular disease. This article critically reviews how best to integrate supportive care into the management of those affected. RECENT FINDINGS: Numerous studies have described the pathophysiology of COVID-19, including that specifically arising in those with cardiovascular disease. Potential treatment strategies have emerged but there is limited guidance on the provision of palliative care. A framework for implementation of this service needs to be developed, perhaps involving the training of non-specialists to deliver primary palliative care in the community, bolstered by the use of telemedicine. The appropriate use of limited clinical resources has engendered many challenging discussions and complex ethical decisions. Prospective implementation of future policies requires the incorporation of measures to assuage moral distress, burnout and compassion fatigue in healthcare staff who are psychologically and physically exhausted. SUMMARY: Further research based on patient-centred decision making and advance care planning is required to ensure the supportive needs of COVID-19 patients with cardiovascular disease are adequately met. This research should focus on interventions applicable to daily healthcare practice and include strategies to safeguard staff well-being.

RESUMO

AIMS: Quality indicators (QIs) are tools to improve the delivery of evidence-base medicine. In 2017, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Association for Acute Cardiovascular Care (ACVC) developed a set of QIs for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), which have been evaluated at national and international levels and across different populations. However, an update of these QIs is needed in light of the accumulated experience and the changes in the supporting evidence. METHODS AND RESULTS: The ESC methodology for the QI development was used to update the 2017 ACVC QIs. We identified key domains of AMI care, conducted a literature review, developed a list of candidate QIs, and used a modified Delphi method to select the final set of indicators. The same seven domains of AMI care identified by the 2017 Study Group were retained for this update. For each domain, main and secondary QIs were developed reflecting the essential and complementary aspects of care, respectively. Overall, 26 QIs are proposed in this document, compared to 20 in the 2017 set. New QIs are proposed in this document (e.g. the centre use of high-sensitivity troponin), some were retained or modified (e.g. the in-hospital risk assessment), and others were retired in accordance with the changes in evidence [e.g. the proportion of patients with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) treated with fondaparinux] and the feasibility assessments (e.g. the proportion of patients with NSTEMI whom risk assessment is performed using the GRACE and CRUSADE risk scores). CONCLUSION: Updated QIs for the management of AMI were developed according to contemporary knowledge and accumulated experience. These QIs may be applied to evaluate and improve the quality of AMI care.

RESUMO

The aims of this paper were to provide an overview of available activity monitors used in research in patients with heart failure and to identify the key criteria in the selection of the most appropriate activity monitor for collecting, reporting, and analysing physical activity in heart failure research. This study was conducted in three parts. First, the literature was systematically reviewed to identify physical activity concepts and activity monitors used in heart failure research. Second, an additional scoping literature search for validation of these activity monitors was conducted. Third, the most appropriate criteria in the selection of activity monitors were identified. Nine activity monitors were evaluated in terms of size, weight, placement, costs, data storage, water resistance, outcomes and validation, and cut-off points for physical activity intensity levels were discussed. The choice of a monitor should depend on the research aims, study population and design regarding physical activity. If the aim is to motivate patients to be active or set goals, a less rigorously tested tool can be considered. On the other hand, if the aim is to measure physical activity and its changes over time or following treatment adjustment, it is important to choose a valid activity monitor with a storage and battery longevity of at least one week. The device should provide raw data and valid cut-off points should be chosen for analysing physical activity intensity levels. Other considerations in choosing an activity monitor should include data storage location and ownership and the upfront costs of the device.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The selection of quality indicators demonstrating the efficiency and relevance of nursing practice in patient outcomes in the intensive care unit remains a challenge. AIM: The aim of this study was to develop a set of potential quality indicators to quantify nursing care provided to critically ill patients through a consensus method. DESIGN: This was a three-phase study including a European survey of intensive care unit (ICU) nurses (phase one) followed by a two-phase face-to-face consensus meeting of experts from Cyprus. METHOD: Two distinct panels of experts were asked to rate each quality indicator using a 4-point Likert scale in phases one and two. The level of consensus was set at 60%. In phase three, scores of the content validity index for items and scales were considered for the final selection of quality indicators. RESULTS: The phase one survey included 139 ICU nurses from 13 European countries, and phases two and three included seven ICU experts from Cyprus. "Consensus in" was achieved for 12 items at the end of phase two. Three of the quality indicators were significantly different by country: (a) falls (P = .006), (b) accidental removal of nasogastric tube (P < .001), and (c) accidental removal of intravascular catheters (P < .001). Only falls was significantly correlated with higher academic qualifications of the participants (P = .002). CONCLUSIONS: Fifteen items have been identified as potential indicators for adult ICU nursing quality. These need to be prospectively studied to determine the extent to which they can accurately capture nursing care quality in this setting. RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: The study provides a set of relevant quality indicators. A nursing set for the ICU may serve as the basis for nursing management and facilitate the strategy dedicated to the vision of health care quality assurance.

RESUMO

The Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology has published a previous position paper and various guidelines over the past decade recognizing the value of palliative care for those affected by this burdensome condition. Integrating palliative care into evidence-based heart failure management remains challenging for many professionals, as it includes the identification of palliative care needs, symptom control, adjustment of drug and device therapy, advance care planning, family and informal caregiver support, and trying to ensure a 'good death'. This new position paper aims to provide day-to-day practical clinical guidance on these topics, supporting the coordinated provision of palliation strategies as goals of care fluctuate along the heart failure disease trajectory. The specific components of palliative care for symptom alleviation, spiritual and psychosocial support, and the appropriate modification of guideline-directed treatment protocols, including drug deprescription and device deactivation, are described for the chronic, crisis and terminal phases of heart failure.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Although preventive health and therapeutics have benefited from advances in drug development and device innovation, translating these evidence-based treatments into real-world practice remains challenging. AIM: The current integrative review aims to identify facilitators and barriers and perceptions in delivering and managing injectable therapies from patient perspectives. METHODS: An integrative review was conducted in the databases of PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO and Cochrane. Keywords were used "Injectable therapy", "IV therapy", "SC therapy", "long term injectable therapies", "self-administered injectable therapy", "patients", "caregivers", "family", "carers", "facilitators", "barriers", "perspectives", "needs", "expectations", "chronic disease", "cardiovascular disease" linked with the words "OR" and "AND". The search was limited from January 2000 to July 2019. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were used. RESULTS: Twenty studies were identified from the literature search. Studies followed qualitative, quantitative methodology and mixed methods. Facilitators included: health improvement, prevention of disease complications, taking control of their disease, effectiveness of the medication and convenience in management. Barriers included: fear of needles, insulin will cause harm, poor perception of the benefits of injectable therapies on their quality of life, inconvenience in self-management, social stigma, impact on daily living, financial barriers, lack of education. Perceptions included: 'treatment of last resort', 'life becomes less flexible', 'injectables were punishment/restriction', 'personal failure of self-management'. CONCLUSION: Evidence shows how to create effective communication and shared decision-making relationships to provide best possible care to patients who need injectable therapy and support for self-management. Future research might help guide response to the fears and barriers of the patients using patients' perspectives.

RESUMO

Supportive care (physical, psychosocial, and spiritual) may be beneficial as a coping resource in the care of patients with heart failure (HF). Nurses may provide individualised supportive care to offer positive emotional support, enhance the patients' knowledge of self-management, and meet the physical and psychosocial needs of patients with HF. The aim of this study was to examine the potential effectiveness of supportive care interventions in improving the health- related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients with HF. Related outcomes of depression and anxiety were also examined. A systematic search of PubMed, CINAHL, and the Cochrane Library was performed to locate randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that implemented any supportive care interventions in patients with HF published in the English language. Identified articles were further screened for additional studies. Ten (10) RCTs were selected for the meta-analysis. Effect sizes were estimated between the comparison groups over the overall follow-up period, and presented along with confidence intervals (CIs). Statistical heterogeneity for each comparison was estimated using Q (chi square test) and I2 statistics with 95% CIs. Statistical heterogeneity was observed in all study variables (i.e., HRQoL and dimensions). There was a positive, but not statistically significant, effect of social support on HRQoL (mean difference [MD], 5.31; 95% CI, -8.93 to 19.55 [p=0.46]). The results of the two dimensions suggested a positive and statistically significant effect of the supportive care interventions (physical: MD, 7.90; 95% CI, 11.31-4.50 [p=0.00]; emotional dimension: MD, 4.10; 95% CI, 6.14-2.06; [p=0.00]). The findings of the current study highlight the need to incorporate supportive care to meet the needs of patients with HF. Patients with HF have care needs that change continuously and rapidly, and there is a need of a continuous process in order to address the holistic needs of patients with HF at all times and not just in a cardiology department or an acute care setting. Patients with HF have multiple needs, which remain unmet. Supportive care is a holistic, ongoing approach that may be effective in identifying and meeting the care needs of patients with HF along with the patient. This review includes all interventions provided in individuals with HF, giving clinicians the opportunity to choose the most suitable ones in improving the clinical outcomes of their patients with HF.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Teamwork and job satisfaction are important among the multidisciplinary team who care patients with chronic illnesses such as heart failure (HF) patients. TeamSTEPPS teamwork perceptions questionnaire (T-TPQ) and Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire "short form" (MSQ-short) are both self-report questionnaires which examine multiple dimensions of perceptions of teamwork and job satisfaction within healthcare settings, respectively. The aim of the study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Greek versions of the TeamSTEPPS Teamwork perceptions questionnaire (Gr-T-TPQ) and Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire "short form" (Gr-MSQ-short). METHODS: A methodological study was contacted in order to assess the construct validity and reliability of the Gr-T-TPQ and Gr-MSQ-short. For that reason, 292 questionnaires were administrated to Greek-Cypriot health care professionals (HCPs). Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted for the data collected with the GrT-TPQ and Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and CFA were also conducted for the data collected with the GrMSQ-short questionnaire. Cronbach's a was calculated as well. RESULTS: CFA of the data collected with Gr-T-TPQ confirmed the initial scale structure with excellent fit indices (× 2 (df) 1124.75 (550), p < 0.0001, AGFI = 0.986, TLI = 0.994, CFI = 0.994, RMSEA = 0.06, 90%, C.I.[0.055-0.065]). Furthermore, all dimensions were found to be correlated (r = 0.65 to r = 0.88) and internal consistency was found adequate (Cronbach's α = 0.96). Subscales also, demonstrated high internal consistency (α = 0.87-0.95). CFA for the data collected with Gr-MSQ-short, did not confirm the initial scale's dimensions. In EFA items 1, 5, 6, 12 and 18 were eliminated from the analysis due to low communalities and multiple components loading. The oblimin rotation with two factors was explaining 58% of the variance. These two factors identified were Supervisor/Autonomy and Task Enrichment. CONCLUSIONS: In general, the Gr-T-TPQ and Gr-MSQ-short are construct-valid instruments for measuring perceptions of teamwork and job satisfaction in Greek speaking HCPs' population.
