Ashland, Ky.— Congratulations to Wendy Fletcher, DNP, APRN, FNP, for being the first King’s Daughters advanced practitioner to earn a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Wendy is a Family Nurse Practitioner at King’s Daughters — Health Plus in Morehead and earned her DNP degree from Texas Christian University.

 
Wendy said earning this degree allows her to translate existing research into practice and work in sync with providers to improve nursing practice and impact healthcare outcomes for patients. DNP graduates typically impact nursing through active engagement in the service/practice setting.

 
Her coursework focused on understanding and managing the complexity of the healthcare environment, using systematic tools such as statistics and decision models for determining the best evidence-based interventions, developing expertise in translational research, actively engaging in healthcare policy and politics and becoming informed regarding emerging sciences and technology.

Ashland, Ky.— Urologists at King’s Daughters Medical Center are now providing patients with advanced stage prostate cancer a customized treatment that stimulates a patient’s own immune system to fight the disease.

 
The treatment, Provenge®, is the only Food and Drug Administration approved immunotherapy for some men with advanced prostate cancer. The treatment uses the patient’s own immune system to identify and target prostate cancer cells. Each dose is manufactured specifically for each patient using his own immune cells.

 
Provenge is not a chemotherapy drug and is different from hormone therapy, which decreases the level of testosterone in the body. A typical Provenge course of treatment can be completed in about a month, and the most common side effects are primarily mild or moderate.
