Cranston selected for All-American third team

first_imgIn addition, her hitting percentage of .277 ranks her first in her conference for outside hitters, while her 0.31 aces per set in league play was second overall. She also placed in the top four on the Rams in digs, blocks and assists.Cranston also stepped her game up even further when it mattered, as the Rams had to win their final eight games of the season in order to earn their fourth straight Mountain West title. During that stretch of games, she had 17 kills or more in five of those contests.The Fort St. John born volleyball star also excelled off the court during her time with the Rams, as she is currently a finalist for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award, which honours students who excel on the court in their academic studies and within their respective communities and who exhibit great character.She is also a three-time Academic All-District selection and is included on the Capital One Academic All-America Ballot, which will be announced Thursday, December 13.Advertisement As a team, the Rams finished their season with a record of 21-8, winning their fourth consecutive Mountain West title, advancing to the NCAA tournament for the 18th straight season. That streak is the seventh longest active streak in the country. It was also the fourth straight year Cranston won the conference with the Rams, which earned her the title in all four years of her NCAA career.Cranston will now join head coach Tom Hilbert and the volleyball coaching staff at this week’s NCAA Final Four in Louisville, Ky., where she will be honoured Friday at the AVCA All-America/Player of the Year Banquet. As a result of receiving the honour, Cranston was named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association third team, while teammates Brieon Paige and Megan Plourde earned honourable mention recognition.Wednesday, Cranston weighed in on the tremendous accomplishment, saying that it’s more than just an individual honour, as she attributed much of her success to the Rams athletic program.”This is such a humbling and amazing honour. It shows the success of our program, and that we are doing this the right way here. I’m so happy the program, university and my teammates get recognized through this.”- Advertisement -Cranston is now the 11th All-American from CSU now has 11 winners. Only 17 programs across the United States have earned as many All-American awards as CSU. The Rams have also had three All-American selections in the past two seasons, following three years without recognition.It’s been a tremendous senior year of accomplishments for the Rams’ outside hitter, who, last month, received her second All-Mountain West Selection and was also named the 2012 Mountain West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Year.During her senior year on the court, Cranston led her Rams in kills and points and ranks second in the Mountain West.Advertisementlast_img read more

Solutionfocused communication by nurses improves control of liquid intake during hemodialysis

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Sep 17 2018The research was conducted over a period of six months with a group of 36 patients in the Hemodialysis Unit of the General University Hospital of Alicante and three nurses who had received training in solution-focused communication.The study, conducted in collaboration with María del Carmen Neipp (Miguel Hernández University of Elche), Maite García-Moreno (Hospital Complex of Navarre, CHN) and Inés González-Sánchez (General University Hospital of Alicante and the Cardenal Herrera University of Elche), has been published recently in the Journal of Advanced Nursing. It will shortly be replicated at two hospitals in La Rioja, so both nurses and kidney specialists will undergo training.Related StoriesDanbury Hospital launches ‘Healing Hugs’ for its most vulnerable patientsStudy analyzes high capacity of A. baumannii to persist on various surfacesBordeaux University Hospital uses 3D printing to improve kidney tumor removal surgeryThe question that the research aims to address is how to facilitate the reduction in the intake of liquid (and food) of certain patients on hemodialysis who have problems in achieving this, “something that the majority find tremendously difficult and uncomfortable, in particular during these hot months,” said Beyebach. The aim is to ensure that the weight gain between one session and the next should be the indispensable minimum and that, therefore, the work of the machine that is purifying the blood should take the shortest possible time. Various pieces of research have shown that in that way not only is the comfort of the hemodialysis sessions increased, the life quality of the patients is improved, and their survival extended.Changing the communicative style in order to achieve results”It is a pilot study, not controlled and carried out on a small sample, but which explores an innovative alternative that no one has studied until now and which is pointing to some promising results,” stressed the researcher. Normally, as he explained, to get the patient to reduce his/her intake, techniques such as the therapy or psychoeducation of the patients themselves are tried but they often fail to achieve the desired results. “It is necessary to empathize with the difficulties facing the patients and to reinforce positive behavior, each patient’s own resources,” he said. “You also have to bear in mind that many of these patients have been waiting for a transplant for years and their moods are close to depression, so merely instructive communication is of no use whatsoever,” he said.The research published highlights the role of nurses as agents of change, since it is the healthcare personnel who are more directly in contact with the person affected and who develop a bond with them. “The study published now suggests that by improving the style of communication with the patients, significant results can be achieved and that is what we want to demonstrate ultimately with the next study that we will be conducting in La Rioja,” said Beyebach.
