BACKGROUND: This study evaluated Turkish oncology nurses' knowledge and educational needs regarding genetics of hereditary breast and ovarian cancers. METHOD: An online survey was used to collect data from 104 Turkish oncology nurses. RESULTS: The mean level of knowledge in oncology genetics was 6.74 ┬▒ 3.85. The majority of nurses (78.7%) were aware of the fact that family history of ovarian or breast cancer is an important risk factor for ovarian or breast cancer; however, a much smaller percentage (25...

Fran Babiss, Lily Thomas, Madeline M Fricke
This study compared two different means of retraining staff in TeamSTEPPS® in an effort to determine whether experiential training might be more effective than a classroom experience. A randomized, controlled pretest-posttest repeated measures design was used for the study. The hypothesis that experiential classes would result in improvements in attitude, perceptions, and knowledge of TeamSTEPPS was not borne out, but several important implications for further study were discovered.

Daria Romaniuk, Stephanie Chu, Daniela D'Annunzio, Grace Garvey
An acute care pediatric hospital and a university school of nursing joined forces to develop a comprehensive, interactive, online course in pediatric health assessment. The course was intended to increase nurses' knowledge and confidence in caring for children and families. The need for pediatric health assessment education varies depending on learners' prior experience. This article describes the course development and shares insights into the successful health care-academic partnership, which combined clinical, scholarly, and technological expertise...

Kathleen A Russell-Babin
BACKGROUND: A paucity of literature exists on use of the affective domain to improve adherence to pressure injury prevention. The purpose of this study was to assess the use of emphasizing the cognitive domain versus education based on combination of the affective and cognitive domains focusing on medical-surgical nurses' behavioral intent to use evidence-based practices to prevent pressure injury. METHOD: A cluster randomized, controlled design was used to compare differences between groups...

Social media has been used increasingly as part of nursing education. Nurse educators at a large, multisite teaching hospital used social media to support clinical teaching. A series of educational images was created by nurse educators and shared across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. This campaign coincided with in-unit clinical education. Nurse educators can consider using social media as an adjunct to clinical teaching, especially in large hospital settings. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(12):541-542.

Jan Jones-Schenk
Preparing adult learners to bring their expertise to improve new processes requires learner activation. Once learners are fully activated, they can bring their unique perspective to apply knowledge and facilitate change. For nurses, who are closest to the patient, activating the nursing perspective to continue to improve on the changes that will continue to pervade health care is critical. This is the role of the professional development educator. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(12):539-540.

Measuring outcomes for educational programs can be challenging for many nursing professional development (NPD) practitioners. Alignment of goals with outcomes provides the foundation for the educator to justify, evaluate, and improve programs with more efficiency. This article highlights lessons learned by NPD practitioners after successful justification for continued support of educational programs. J Contin Nurs Educ. 2017;48(12):537-538.

Dana Tschannen
Crew Resource Management (CRM), a method focused on the management of human error and risk reduction, has shown promise in reducing communication failure in health care. The purpose of this project was to develop a virtual training program in CRM principles of effective leadership and followership, and evaluate the applicability to nurses working in the hospital setting. The intervention included the development of a virtual CRM training program consisting of a self-learning module and virtual simulation. Beta testing of the module was conducted by six nurses, followed by an evaluation of the training program by nurses (n = 5) in a general medicine department...

Some words and phrases used by health care providers may be perceived as insensitive by patients, which could negatively affect patient outcomes and satisfaction. However, a distinct concept that can be used to describe and synthesize these words and phrases does not exist. The purpose of this article is to propose the concept of language sensitivity, defined as the use of respectful, supportive, and caring words with consideration for a patient's situation and diagnosis. Examples of how language sensitivity may be lacking in nurse-patient interactions are described, and solutions are provided using the RESPECT (Rapport, Environment/Equipment, Safety, Privacy, Encouragement, Caring/Compassion, and Tact) model...

Evidence-based practice (EBP) continues to gain global attention. In the Latin American country of Panama, nursing practice has largely been guided by oral tradition and clinical experience rather than the use of best evidence. The authors used a conference-based approach in a joint effort between the University of South Florida and the University of Panama to introduce EBP to nursing leaders in Panama to bring change to the nursing curricula and, ultimately, change in nursing practice.

Denise Duffy Nash, Monica Flowers
BACKGROUND: With competition from so many nursing programs seeking clinical sites and numerous nurses entering the health care industry, it is imperative to have a nurse preceptor program in health care institutions. METHOD: This article attempts to identify the essential components of a preceptor program by reviewing the literature, surveying RNs to identify curriculum, and suggesting an evidence-based preceptor program of value. RESULTS: Although there is much in the published literature and books about preceptors' roles and responsibilities, few references are available about how to start a preceptor program and program components...

In July 2015, the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation released updated criteria for continuing nursing education, including updates to the Education Design Process. The primary nurse planner in the Public Health Nursing Approved Provider Unit in North Carolina's Division of Public Health applied the advancing research and clinical practice through close collaboration model and quality improvement strategies to facilitate the adoption and implementation of the 2015 criteria. This article describes an innovative approach to implementation using an evidence-based practice model and quality improvement tools and provides data regarding nurse planners' knowledge of accreditation criteria and role comfort during the first 6 months of implementation...

BACKGROUND: Clinical preceptorship is critical for the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes in nursing care. Cardinal to the development of these competences is the preceptor's knowledge on preceptorship. In low-income countries, the responsibility of preceptorship rests with staff nurses whose knowledge on preceptorship is largely unknown. METHOD: A survey was conducted among 254 nurses using a 3-point Likert scale questionnaire. Mean scale scores were computed for knowledge score...

Even highly trained new nurses can feel overwhelmed when starting a new job. A professional development tool, the First Things First Checklist, described in this article, can help new nurses structure their day and prioritize their tasks. This checklist approach can help mitigate stress, structure the day, and promote optimal patient care. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(11):494-495.

Michael R Bleich
Stereotyping is a human condition. When it leads to identifying contingencies-factors that inhibit or advance leadership capacity-it threatens leaders' abilities and performance. Professional development educators are called to awareness of unintentional bias that can affect the predicaments aligned with stereotyping and foster a learning culture that advances trust and hope. The impact of marginalization, segregation, and underrepresentation of individuals in health care settings is presented. J Contin Educ Nurs...
