    Hospital quality of care linked to racial disparities in unexpected newborn complications

    Hospital quality of care linked to racial disparities in unexpected newborn complications

    Today we discuss a study that describes associations between race/ethnicity, hospital of birth and ‘unexpected newborn complications’ in low-risk term neonates in New York City.
    Kristine Schmitz (1) and Lawrence Charles Kleinman (2) are the authors of a commentary published by EBN on that study. They tell Evidence-Based Nursing Associate Editor, Kerry Gaskin, how the quality of care in the hospital of delivery has a direct relation with more unexpected neonatal complications in black and hispanic infants.

    Sustainable return to nursing with Long Covid, advice from the experts

    Sustainable return to nursing with Long Covid, advice from the experts

    Returning to work as a nurse with Long Covid is thwart with difficulties in part due to its relapsing-remitting nature. Many nurses with Long Covid experience post-exertional malaise and symptom exacerbation if they push themselves and this may trigger a major relapse. This means that a return to work needs to be planned carefully.
    In this second podcast of a series about Long Covid, Dr Alison Twycross, Editor in Chief of Evidence-Based Nursing, speaks to two freelance consultants from Long Covid Work: Dr Clare Rayner, a consultant occupational physician, and Kirsty Stanley, Director, Occupational Therapist & Writer at Occupation4Life Ltd, about best practice in this context. They provide guidance for both employers and employees. Alison, Clare and Kirsty are also members of the Long Covid Support Employment Group.
