School of Nursing’s Colloca Writes About Nocebo Effect

To provide the public with a better understanding of recent groundbreaking research on the nocebo effect, Luana Colloca, MD, PhD, associate professor, University of Maryland School of Nursing, has written an article, “Nocebo Effects Can Make You Feel Pain,” published in Science magazine.

The nocebo effect occurs when a person has a negative expectation of a treatment outcome, leading to adverse effects that otherwise might not occur. Although patient response often can be influenced by expectations, Colloca and her research team discovered that negative reactions to treatments go beyond psychological responses and involve neurobiological mechanisms. Building on Colloca’s work and other lab research, a recent study by Alexandra Tinnermann and colleagues at the University Medical Center in Hamburg, Germany, showed that when a patient expects to experience more pain, there is an activation of the spinal cord leading to increased pain perception.

“If a patient believes the pain is getting worse, even while going through treatment, there may be an increase of the activation of pain facilitatory pathways involving the spinal cord. Tinnermann’s study is the first neurobiological demonstration that shows expectations can change brain nociception processing and make people feel more pain,” Colloca said. “This and other nocebo studies are important because they suggest that the nocebo phenomenon can change the patient response to pain sensations and painkillers.”

Often, successfully overcoming an ailment can depend on past experiences with treatment. Additionally, information provided during the consent process and in the context of patient-clinician communication may trigger nocebo responses. Nocebo effects can contribute to perceived adverse effects and influence clinical outcomes and whether or not a patient adheres to prescribed medication. Nocebo effects should be avoided during clinical trials and practices, according to Colloca. Instead of concealing information related to side effects, a better approach is to minimize nocebo response by tailoring patient-clinician communication to balance truthful information about adverse events with expectations of outcome improvement, exploring patient treatment beliefs and negative therapeutic history, and paying attention to treatment descriptions.

Nursing’s McLaine Receives Rosalie Silber Abrams Legislative Award

Patricia McLaine, DrPH, MPH, RN, assistant professor and director, Community/Public Health Nursing master’s specialty at the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON), received the 2017 Maryland Nurses Association (MNA) Rosalie Silber Abrams Legislative Award on Oct. 5 at the association’s 114th annual convention.

The award is given to an MNA member who has made a significant contribution on behalf of nursing in the legislative arena on the federal, state, or local levels. These contributions can encompass a broad range of activities but must demonstrate a favorable reflection of nursing’s interests, especially those of the MNA. McLaine has been an MNA member since 1992 and a public health nurse and advocate for those with health disparities for more than 20 years.

The award recognizes McLaine’s efforts during the 2017 Maryland General Assembly session, when she tirelessly lobbied for passage of the Keep Antibiotics Effective Act (SB422/HB 602), which restricts the regular use of antibiotics in livestock in an effort to curb the spread of drug-resistant bacteria. Maryland is the second state in the United States to pass such a law.

McLaine also has worked to prevent childhood lead poisoning and combat health disparities in Baltimore. As chair of the Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Commission, she has maintained a steady focus on improving prevention strategies and evaluating data to reduce the risks of lead poisoning facing Maryland’s youngest residents and their families. Additionally, her work with the Reducing Asthma Disparities Program has helped shape Baltimore’s home visit program for children with asthma.

“We are thrilled that Dr. McLaine’s work has been recognized by the Maryland Nurses Association through this prestigious award,” said UMSON Dean Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN. “She has been a staunch advocate for public health, working nationally and locally to prevent lead-based paint poisoning, mitigate asthma disparities, and ensure healthy environments for children and their families. She is an outstanding leader and a role model for what expertise and persistence can accomplish on behalf of vulnerable populations.”

McLaine also received an official citation from Maryland state Sen. Shirley Nathan-Pulliam, BSN ’80, RN, District 44. The citation recognized McLaine for being honored with the Rosalie Silver Abrams Legislative Award and for her dedicated work on lead poison prevention.

“I am deeply honored to be nominated by my colleagues from MNA to receive the Rosalie Silver Abrams Legislative Award. Health is so much more than health care, and our interests as nurses go well beyond our practice concerns as a profession,” McLaine said. “In a larger sense, this work is part of what we do every day as nurses to build a culture of health. The food we eat, the air we breathe, the neighborhoods and homes where we live, and the places where we work are all part of the environment where good health begins and is maintained. I am proud as a community/public health nurse to have the opportunity to support the health of the people of Maryland and our communities at this policy level.”

In recognition of her efforts, McLaine also received a Baltimore City Health Equity Award last spring. Additionally, in November 2016, McLaine and her faculty colleagues received two American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Awards for their forward-thinking initiatives: the Innovation in Professional Nursing Education Award and the Innovations in Baccalaureate Population Health Award.

Language Access Helps Health and Human Services Professionals Communicate

The Office of Interprofessional Student Learning and Service Initiatives (ISLSI) started Hispanic Heritage Month with two events focused on language access, “Nos Entendemos? The Value of Linguistic Competence in Serving the Latinx Population” and “Aquí Se Habla Español: Language Access in Health Care Services.”

Language access is the oral and written language services needed to assist English language learners and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate effectively with practitioners and administrators. Both events discussed language access services as a protected right for all people and a responsibility of all programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It reads, “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

The first event, “Nos Entendemos? The Value of Linguistic Competence in Serving the Latinx Population,” was facilitated by Sandra Quezada, MD, MS, assistant dean for admissions and assistant dean for Academic and Multicultural Affairs at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The presentation focused on the responsibility of health and human services practitioners to provide quality service, care, and education to clients, patients, and students by utilizing language access services.

The second event, “Aquí Se Habla Español: Language Access in Health Care Services,” was facilitated by Veronique Felix of Maryland Legal Aid. This session defined common terms, regulations, and best practices in regard to language access resources.

Both presenters shared helpful protocol on when and how to use language access services. Here is a summary of those suggestions.

  • Be sure to ask clients and patients if they would like to have a free translator to communicate.
  • Always aim to make language access accommodations when an appointment is being scheduled or before the client or patient arrives to receive service or conduct business.
  • Do not use friends, family, or untrained staff as translators.
  • Be sure to have documents and any written correspondence translated for clients and patients into the native language.
  • Be sure all staff members are trained and knowledgeable about the language access resources available and know how to access and use those resources.
  • When working in person with an interpreter, speak directly to your client or patient rather than speaking to the interpreter.

Each presenter ended with a call to action for all organizations to offer more training for working with interpreters, developing and using oral and written language access resources, and creating workplace policies and tool kits that specifically address how to properly serve English language learners and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.

If you would like to stay up to date on programs and training offered by ISLSI in the areas of diversity and identity education, subscribe to the monthly newsletter. Contact Ebony Nicholson at  Ebony.Nicholson@umaryland.edu with questions, comments, or suggestions.

Can-Do Spirit Lifts McMorris to UMB Employee of Month Award

Yvonne McMorris is a kind and trusting soul. Therefore, when her Carey School of Law colleagues told the faculty support manager she needed to attend a learning and development meeting on the 14th floor of the Saratoga Building on Sept. 28, she believed them.

She still believed them when UMB President Jay A. Perman, MD, entered the conference room and sat beside her. When he said she did a great job, she thanked him and waited for the meeting to start.

When Perman stated he had a lot to say about McMorris, she softly asked, “This is not about learning and development?” Even several minutes after being told she was UMB’s Employee of the Month, she still could not get over the fact the scheduled meeting was a hoax, saying, “And I came here with notes and everything,” to the delight of the cheering and laughing group assembled for the occasion.

“One of the faculty wrote that you are both the most competent and the most dedicated faculty assistant with whom she has ever worked,” Perman told McMorris. “She talks about the fact that when faculty are working against a deadline, it’s almost always you volunteering to stay late to finish the work.”

After receiving a plaque, a letter, and a promise of $250 in her next paycheck that brought her to tears, McMorris leaned back in her chair, still in disbelief, and answered questions about her UMB career.

An Inquiring Mind

A legal secretary in New York before moving to Maryland, McMorris came to the law school in March 1999 to do secretarial work. A diligent worker, she quickly showed a “thirst for knowledge,” according to Mary Alice Hohing, director of administration and operations, taking classes to improve her skills, earning promotions to administrative assistant II (2001), coordinator for faculty support (2006), and office manager (2014) after obtaining her bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies from the University of Baltimore.

Curious by nature, McMorris says it’s impossible to work at the school and NOT learn something. “I tell staff when your professor is writing something, engage them, ask them what it is they are writing about, and become interested in what they are doing,” she says.

She said that professor emeritus David Bogen, LLB, LLM, educated her about black history and slavery while he was writing a book about it. “Just sitting there and listening, gaining the knowledge that he has — that is how it is when I am with each professor,” McMorris says. “If they are writing, I like to ask them questions.”

In addition to reading articles, books, and manuscripts for the professors, McMorris puts together recommendation letters, assists with research — “whatever faculty needs” — and helps train her fellow staff members.

Her efforts are most appreciated.

Professor Donald Gifford, JD, who calls McMorris the most competent and dedicated faculty assistant with whom he has worked in nearly 40 years in legal education, says, “When some other assistants are faced with a challenging task, they respond, ‘It can’t be done.’ In contrast, Yvonne’s response is always ‘I do know that can be done. Let me see what I can do.’”

Professor Paula Monopoli, JD, adds, “Yvonne is a role model for all the other administrative assistants whom she helps to supervise. Her willingness to pitch in at any time demonstrates her excellence as a team player.”

Professor Andrew Blair-Stanek, JD, says, “She is immensely professional, hard-working, and conscientious.”

“I often say that great law schools are made up of great people — great students, faculty, staff, and alumni,” says Dean Donald B. Tobin, JD. “Yvonne McMorris is a perfect example. She represents our excellence. She is always willing to lend a hand; thinks ‘yes’ before ‘no’; and is always willing to take on new challenges and learn new things.”

When she read some of the faculty’s comments, McMorris smiled and said, “Wow, I’ll have to thank them.”

Dedication and Appreciation

Although she never expected to be August Employee of the Month, McMorris admits, “I give a lot.” She tells of running into an associate dean at midnight at the school when they were working on deadline projects, of students she has watched “blossom,” of longtime faculty such as William Reynolds, JD, and Daniel Goldberg, JD, who have given her as much as they have received. “I am fortunate to be able work with such wonderful people,” she says.

She attributes her work ethic to her faith and her parents.

“First of all, I’m a Christian, and the Bible states that I can do all things through Christ because He strengthens me. While living in England, my mom left nursing school to take care of her family. After my sister, brother, and I graduated from high school here in the United States, my mom went back to school full time for nursing, while she had a full-time job — it was now my mom’s turn. My mom gave me the inspiration for going back to school because she was my role model. She set the example. And she always says, ‘America is the land of opportunity.’ ”

With a wistful look, McMorris looked around the president’s conference room and exclaimed: “I am going to tell my children what happened today! I can’t believe this!”

Theater Critic Rousuck Gives Lowdown on Hippodrome Lineup

Theater critic J. Wynn “Judy” Rousuck gave the insider scoop on the productions coming to the Hippodrome Theatre this season in the latest “Broadway 101” brown bag lunch series talk for members of the UMB community Sept. 27.

“The Hippodrome has really been a gateway to Broadway,” said Rousuck, a former theater critic for The Baltimore Sun who is with WYPR radio, where she can be heard every Thursday on Midday.

She told the group of 15 sitting in the historic theater near the UMB campus that all of the Hippodrome productions this season are musicals. Five of the seven shows are adaptations from movies and two are by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The first production of the season, Love Never Dies, is a sequel to Phantom of the Opera and has never been seen in the United States, she said. It was first produced in London, where it did not do well, but later met with success in Australia. Baltimore is its first U.S. stop.

“People who see the show here will be way ahead of the curve,” Rousuck said.

After spending 23 years at The Sun, Rousuck has a wealth of dramatic stories. While discussing Love Never Dies, she recounted the time she interviewed Webber years ago, long before he “became a composing superstar but was still a very big deal,” she explained.

She had her tape recorder going, and Webber pulled out his own tape recorder at one point and told her he wanted to play her a song from a new show he was working on. The show was Cats and the song was “Memory,” sung by Barbra Streisand accompanied by the London Philharmonic.

“I came back to The Sun, and I was playing it for everybody,” she said. “I said, ‘You are going to hear this song everywhere. You are going to hear it in elevators. You are going to hear it in shopping malls.’ Little did I know.”

Other shows at the Hippodrome this season include:

  • The Color Purple, which won a Tony Award in 2016 for best revival of a musical and has a “lovely score,” according to Rousuck.
  • Disney’s The Lion King, which was a hugely successful animated movie and continues to be a popular show, she said.
  • Waitress, which is about a small-town waitress who specializes in pies and is given the opportunity to compete in a baking contest.
  • School of Rock, which is based on the movie starring Jack Black and is about a fifth-grade substitute teacher who turns his class into a rock band.
  • An American in Paris, which was a 1951 Oscar-winning movie and is supposed to have “breathtaking” choreography, she said.
  • On Your Feet, which is the story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan. “It should be a real uplifting way to end the season,” Rousuck said.

Rousuck was the guest speaker at UMB’s first “Broadway 101” brown bag lunch in November 2014. The series, sponsored by UMB’s Council for the Arts & Culture, continues a relationship that dates to UMB’s donation of the Hippodrome before its rebuilding, renovation, and 2004 reopening.

The Hippodrome Foundation, which partners with the Council for the Arts & Culture on the UMB series, also is familiar to Rousuck. She works with the foundation to help introduce schoolchildren to live theater. She leads foundation programs for students, teachers, and senior citizens.

Her curriculum this year will be based on The Lion King, which is one of her favorite shows to teach, particularly because the theme is so closely connected to Shakespeare’s Hamlet and because of the ornate masks in the production.

“It’s a great show to teach in classrooms,” she said.

Her elementary school students will write a puppet show, design the puppets, and stage the show. Middle school students will write their own book that will be published, she said.

Clearly, Rousuck is passionate about turning area children on to the theater. She recounted a story of when schoolchildren filled the Hippodrome for a production of Beauty and the Beast several years ago. The students were fully engaged in the show, and when the teacup character “Chip” was transformed back into a boy and ran across the stage, the theater erupted in cheers, applause, and screams.

“It was really something different, like I have never heard in a theater anywhere. It was remarkable,” she told the UMB group. “I’ve seen a lot of things in three decades, but this was really something new.”

She said she later told her husband, “If anyone doubts the impact that theater, that art, can have on kids’ lives, they should have been there.”

Rousuck encouraged the faculty and staff in attendance to attend the shows and bring their children.

“Truly theater can change lives in all sorts of different ways, but on the most basic level it can awaken a spirit of wonder in children,” she said. “A spirit of wonder for me, as an adult, is rekindled every time the curtain rises, and I hope some of you will share that experience.”

The University offers discounted tickets to Hippodrome productions. For details, visit the Council for the Arts & Culture website.
