Here’s why we need evidence

evidently-cochrane-logoEveryday nursing requires the appropriate use of evidence and this website  from Evidently Cochrane provides useful insights. The article about pressure ulcers illustrates why evidence is needed for everyday practice.

Evidence can be found from a variety of sources and with busy workloads and winter pressures coming, you may find it is hard to find time to search for reliable evidence.

Don’t worry – we can help you!

Your Library and Knowledge Service has skilled  outreach specialists who can help you, either by running an evidence  search or training you to do it effectively. So get ahead and get in touch with us if you are based at East Cheshire NHS Trust.

Peptides that form amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s may be transmissible, study finds

Amyloid β, the peptide that forms amyloid plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease, may be transmissible through medical treatments such as blood products and surgical instruments, a small UK study published in Nature has shown.

Researchers working on iatrogenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (iCJD) unexpectedly found four autopsy cases with moderate to severe deposition of amyloid β in the grey matter of the brain typical of that seen in Alzheimer’s disease. They also found the peptide in the blood vessel walls deposited in a way that was characteristic of cerebral amyloid angiopathy.

Cognitive impairment after cardiovascular surgery is uncommon in older people, a systematic evidence review published in the Annals of Internal Medicine has concluded. However, the researchers said that the evidence was limited and that the individual study quality was low.

Debate surrounds the possible relation between cardiovascular interventions and subsequent cognitive outcomes in older patients. Some early studies reported a high prevalence of cognitive impairment after coronary artery bypass grafts (CABGs), for example, but later studies have suggested that any such decline predated the procedure.
