Title: Benefits of implementing and improving collection of sexual orientation and gender identity data in electronic health records.

Journal: CIN: Computers, Informatics, Nursing, (36)6: 267-274.

Purpose: Beginning in January 2018, meaningful use criteria dictate that electronic health records have the capability to collect data related to sexual orientation and gender identity of patients. Nurse informaticists play a vital role in the process of developing new electronic health records that are sensitive to the needs and identities of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. Improved collection of sexual orientation and gender identity data will advance the identification of health disparities experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations.

Title: Acute Pain Assessment in Sedated Patients in the Postanesthesia Care Unit.

Journal: The Clinical Journal of Pain, 34(8): 700-706.

Purpose: Acute postoperative pain remains inadequately assessed and managed. A valid instrument that assesses acute pain in sedated postanesthesia care unit (PACU) patients is needed. Two behavioral pain assessment instruments, the NonVerbal Pain Scale Revised (NVPS-R) and Critical-care Pain Observation Tool (CPOT), were used to determine whether these instruments adequately assess acute pain in the PACU.
