BACKGROUND: The approach and style of leaders is known to be an important factor influencing the translation of research evidence into nursing practice. However, questions remain as to what types of roles are most effective and the specific mechanisms through which influence is achieved. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to enhance understanding of the mechanisms by which key nursing roles lead the implementation of evidence-based practice across different care settings and countries and the contextual factors that influence them...

BACKGROUND: Nursing discharge preparation is vital to successful hospital-to-home transitions. However, despite a wealth of evidence on its effectiveness, little is known of the structure- and process-related factors that facilitate or impede its use in clinical practice. Specifically, the associations between unit size and type, leadership support, skill mix, staffing, nurse and patient characteristics, discharge teaching and patient readiness for discharge have rarely been studied. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to explore the associations between structure-individual characteristics (i...

BACKGROUND: Papers continue to be cited by authors even after they have been retracted. Retraction notices provide readers with information about retracted papers and may help minimise post-retraction citation. To date, a review of the quality of retraction notices in nursing science has not been reported. DESIGN: An audit of retraction notices associated with 29 retracted manuscripts published in nursing science journals. METHODS: Retraction notices were reviewed again using the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Despite the established importance of compassion in health, studies examining the specific barriers to compassionate care in healthcare are few. Recent work suggests that examining differences as a function of professional development and identifying variation in barriers to compassionate care across professions may highlight the origins of barriers and inform the development of compassion-enhancing interventions suited to the unique challenges of different professions and stages of training...

After a stroke, people characteristically experience a loss of function. Reviewers (English et al., 2017) provide evidence-based insights into the value of instigating CCT into post-stroke rehabilitation. The review examines the effectiveness of CCT for people who have experienced stroke. The meta-analysis includes seventeen trials comprising 1297 participants. Results demonstrate that CCT is a worthwhile intervention to establish and support mobility post-stroke. The primary effect of CCT was to improve walking capacity, measured by a walk test...

BACKGROUND: Nurses play crucial roles in cardiopulmonary resuscitation after perioperative cardiac arrest (PCA), and the level of nurse staffing is thought to influence the survival rate for cardiac arrest. However, no previous study has investigated the survival rate after PCA in Korea. In addition, nurse staffing levels in Korea are relatively low and their legal standard is not widely followed. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the relationships between nurse staffing level and survival after PCA in Korean hospitals using inpatient National Health Insurance (NHI) claim data...

BACKGROUND: The Quality in Acute Stroke Care Trial implemented nurse-initiated protocols to manage fever, hyperglycaemia and swallowing (Fever, Sugar, Swallow clinical protocols) achieving a 16% absolute improvement in death and dependency 90-day post-stroke. OBJECTIVE: To examine associations between 90-day death and dependency, and monitoring and treatment processes of in-hospital nursing stroke care targeted in the trial. DESIGN: Secondary data analysis from a single-blind cluster randomised control trial...

Nurses routinely engage in pattern recognition and interpretation in qualitative research and clinical practice. However, they risk spontaneously perceiving patterns among things that are not meaningfully related. Although all people are prone to this cognitive bias of "apophenia", nurses may be at increased risk because they commonly produce or at least use qualitative research that can be highly interpretive. Qualitative researchers have been silent on the risk of apophenia and hence on exploring how attention to apophenia could help to indicate and manage such unconscious biases...

AIM: To explore the patients' experiences of living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. DESIGN: A qualitative systematic review...

BACKGROUND: Overactive bladder is more common in patients with type 2 diabetes than in those without diabetes. Many patients with diabetes adopt unhealthy toileting behaviors to empty their bladder that may contribute to the onset or worsening of overactive bladder. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether an education program targeting toileting behaviors is effective for helping overactive bladder patients with type 2 diabetes in terms of adopting healthy toileting behaviors, improving bladder symptoms, and enhancing quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Healthcare providers play an important role in providing preconception care to women and men of childbearing age. Yet, the provision of preconception care by healthcare providers remains low. OBJECTIVES: To provide an overview of barriers and facilitators at multiple levels that influence the provision of preconception care by healthcare providers. DESIGN: A mixed-methods systematic review. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, Web of Science, CINAHL, The Cochrane Library, and EMBASE were systematically searched up to April 27, 2017...

BACKGROUND: Family presence during resuscitation is not widely implemented in clinical practice. Prior research about nurse factors that may influence their decision to invite family members to remain in the room during resuscitation is contradictory and inconclusive. OBJECTIVES: To describe intensive care unit nurses' perceptions, self-confidence, and invitations of family presence during resuscitation, and to evaluate differences according to nurse factors. DESIGN: A cross-sectional survey design was used for descriptive and correlational analyses...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure is a complex syndrome that causes substantial functional impairment and poor outcomes. Although multidisciplinary disease management programmes are effective, the role of additional outpatient-based exercise training and the effects of multidisciplinary disease management programmes for patients with contraindications to exercise training are unclear. OBJECTIVES: To compare the effects of the multidisciplinary disease management programme with and without exercise training on heart failure-related rehospitalization, disease knowledge, and functional capacity...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers provide the foundation for long-term home care of stroke survivors. The overwhelming stress associated with caregiving hinders the ability of family caregivers to utilise their internal and external resources to cope with this situation, thereby placing their own health at risk. We conducted a randomised controlled trial of a strength-oriented psychoeducational programme on conventional stroke rehabilitation for family caregivers. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of a strength-oriented psychoeducational programme on the caregiving competence, problem-solving coping abilities, caregiver's depressive symptoms, caregiving burden and resources (family functioning, social support) and physical health (such as caregiving-related injury), as well as potential placement of stroke survivors...
