Impact of a Novel Application in Electrocardiogram Interpretation Confidence and Performance in Nurse Practitioner Students

In a quasiexperiment design, a cohort of Seattle University fourth-year DNP students were asked to participate in a six-week program utilizing this novel learning application.

Impact of a Novel Application in Electrocardiogram Interpretation Confidence and Performance in Nurse Practitioner Students

"For the last hundred years and to this day, one of the most important diagnostic tools in medicine has been the electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG). The decision to pursue a life-saving intervention, or not, may be heavily based on the interpretation of the results of a diagnostic test. With the weight of impacts to outcomes, one would think there would be ample, if not excessive, time and effort given to teaching practitioners how to interpret an ECG. Unfortunately, with each graduating class of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, all of whom have within their scope of practice to interpret ECGs and act upon them appropriately, there are more under-prepared professionals in the field (Burns et al., 2020). Due to the discrepancy between importance of ECG interpretation and subsequent preparation, a novel learning application was created in an effort to improve one’s ability and confidence to interpret ECGs. In a quasiexperiment design, a cohort of Seattle University fourth-year DNP students were asked to participate in a six-week program utilizing this novel learning application. Each participant’s ability to interpret ECGs, as well as confidence in their preparation and ability, was assessed before and after the intervention. The results demonstrated utilizing the novel learning application increased overall confidence and ability to interpret ECGs. Additionally, it was found that individuals improved their scores significantly post intervention"--Abstract.

Patients at Risk

This is a story that has not yet been told, and one that has dangerous repercussions for all Americans.

Patients at Risk

Patients at Risk: The Rise of the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant in Healthcare exposes a vast conspiracy of political maneuvering and corporate greed that has led to the replacement of qualified medical professionals by lesser trained practitioners. As corporations seek to save money and government agencies aim to increase constituent access, minimum qualifications for the guardians of our nation’s healthcare continue to decline—with deadly consequences. This is a story that has not yet been told, and one that has dangerous repercussions for all Americans. With the rate of nurse practitioner and physician assistant graduates exceeding that of physician graduates, if you are not already being treated by a non-physician, chances are, you soon will be. While advocates for these professions insist that research shows that they can provide the same care as physicians, patients do not know the whole truth: that there are no credible scientific studies to support the safety and efficacy of non-physicians practicing without physician supervision. Written by two physicians who have witnessed the decline of medical expertise over the last twenty years, this data-driven book interweaves heart-rending true patient stories with hard data, showing how patients have been sacrificed for profit by the substitution of non-physician practitioners. Adding a dimension neglected by modern healthcare critiques such as An American Sickness, this book provides a roadmap for patients to protect themselves from medical harm. WORDS OF PRAISE and REVIEWS Al-Agba and Bernard tell a frightening story that insiders know all too well. As mega corporations push for efficiency and tout consumer focused retail services, American healthcare is being dumbed down to the point of no return. It's a story that many media outlets are missing and one that puts you and your family's health at real risk. --John Irvine, Deductible Media Laced with actual patient cases, the book’s data and patterns of large corporations replacing physicians with non-physician practitioners, despite the vast difference in training is enlightening and astounding. The authors' extensively researched book methodically lays out the problems of our changing medical care landscape and solutions to ensure quality care. --Marilyn M. Singleton, MD, JD A masterful job of bringing to light a rapidly growing issue of what should be great concern to all of us: the proliferation of non-physician practitioners that work predominantly inside algorithms rather than applying years of training, clinical knowledge, and experience. Instead of a patient-first mentality, we are increasingly met with the sad statement of Profits Over Patients, echoed by hospitals and health insurance companies. --John M. Chamberlain, MHA, LFACHE, Board Chairman, Citizen Health A must read for patients attempting to navigate today’s healthcare marketplace. --Brian Wilhelmi MD, JD, FASA
