Becker's Hospital Review
Nurses face a multitude of stressors and challenges every day, from a sometimes-erratic work environment to staffing shortages and negative patient outcomes. To address these issues and keep nurses happy and engaged, health systems and hospital leaders must realize the value of supporting resilience among not only their nursing teams but also across their institutions.

Concerns about a shortage of registered nurses in California have been rising, with one report claiming that California will need nearly 200,000 more nurses by 2030. Other studies show that there will be no statewide shortages, but that some regions face impending shortages and others may have surpluses. Over the past six years, surveys have found that many newly graduated nurses are challenged to find jobs.
Join us for a webinar on the latest data on RN supply, demand, and shortages in California. We will describe the latest findings from the UCSF survey of nurse employers, the Hospital Association of Southern California’s hospital vacancy and turnover survey, HealthImpact’s Survey of New Graduate RNs, and other recently released data.
Please contact Lena Libatique at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive notification when registration opens.

According to WHO, of the 43.5 million health workers in the world, it is estimated that 20.7 million are nurses and midwives, yet 50% of WHO member states report less than three nursing and midwifery personnel per 1000 state individuals (and about 25% report to have less than 1 per 1000).
Seeing the importance of the demand for nursing and healthcare in education, research and profession, Research International aims to build a platform by organizing the “World Congress on Nursing and Healthcare," which is slated for Nov. 20-21, 2019, in Paris, France.
We are privileged to invite you to this prestigious event.

Nurses interact with patients day in and day out.
While most nurses love working with others, some wish they could tell their patients more about what it's really like caring for them. For instance, nurses told Business Insider that they wish they could tell patients to stop treating the hospital like a hotel and to stop demanding their immediate attention at all times.

The latest Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer finds that, for all cancer sites combined, cancer death rates continued to decline in men, women, and children in the United States from 1999 to 2016. Overall cancer incidence rates, or rates of new cancers, decreased in men from 2008 to 2015, after increasing from 1999 to 2008, and were stable in women from 1999 to 2015. In a special section of the report, researchers looked at cancer rates and trends in adults ages 20 to 49.

About 5.7 million adults in the United States have heart failure. One in nine deaths in 2009 included HF as contributing cause, and about half of those who develop HF die within five years of diagnosis. HF is associated with frequent hospital admissions, reduced quality of life, significant morbidity, and increased mortality. Cognitive impairment is a common adverse consequence of HF and is characterized by deficits in one or more cognition domains, including attention, memory, executive function, and psychomotor speed.
The World Health Organization last week said it now officially recognizes workplace burnout in the 11th edition of its International Classification of Diseases. This comes as the healthcare industry is seeing an increasing number of cases of clinician burnout.
A fungus — genetically enhanced to produce spider toxin — can rapidly kill huge numbers of the mosquitoes that spread malaria, a study suggests.
Trials, which took place in Burkina Faso, showed mosquito populations collapsed by 99 percent within 45 days.
The researchers say their aim is not to make the insects extinct but to help stop the spread of malaria.
We share our bodies with trillions of microbes that are critical to staying healthy, but now scientists are getting a much-needed close look at how those bugs can get out of whack and spur disease.

In a discovery that might be likened to finding medicine's version of the Loch Ness monster, a research team from Johns Hopkins Medicine, IBM Research and four collaborating institutions is the first to document the existence of long-doubted "X cell," a "rogue hybrid" immune system cell that may play a key role in the development of type 1 diabetes.
The researchers report the unusual lymphocyte — formally known as a dual expressor, or DE, cell — in a new paper published in the journal Cell.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted a photo of a lemon poppy seed muffin on Facebook this week with a minor and horrifying detail: five of the seeds were actually ticks. “There are five ticks in this photo. Can you spot them?” the agency wrote. The post is an effort to raise awareness about tick-borne diseases as the arachnid’s most active season begins.
Popular heartburn drugs have been linked to serious health risks, including increased odds of developing stomach cancer, fatal cardiovascular disease, and chronic kidney disease. The concerns involve long-term use of medications known as proton pump inhibitors, which have been previously associated with higher odds of dying prematurely.

Can your liver sense when you're staring at a television screen or cellphone late at night? Apparently so, and when such activity is detected, the organ can throw your circadian rhythms out of whack, leaving you more susceptible to health problems.
That's one of the takeaways from two new studies by University of California, Irvine scientists working in collaboration with the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Barcelona, Spain.
