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...

BACKGROUND: Patients with inflammatory bowel disease have lifelong needs to learn how to manage their symptoms and life situation. The range of actions that patients take in order to manage daily life and maintain health is referred to as self-care. Assessment of self-care in patients with inflammatory bowel disease could allow targeted support and education by health care professionals. There are no existing measures assessing self-care in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. OBJECTIVES: The aim was to develop and evaluate the self-care questionnaire for assessment of self-care among patients with inflammatory bowel disease...

Yet, rates of attendance at outpatient cardiac rehabilitation by eligible patients are low.

BACKGROUND: Older persons often have multiple health and social problems and need a variety of health services. A coordinated preventive approach that integrates the provision of health and social care services could promote healthy ageing. Such an approach can be organised differently, depending on the availability and organizational structures in the local context. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of a coordinated preventive care approach in various European settings...

BACKGROUND: Respect for inherent dignity and individual autonomy is a basic principle in health care. However, several studies indicate that care-dependent older adults with a cognitive impairment, receiving nursing care at home, are at risk of care without their consent, referred to as 'involuntary treatment'. This includes the application of physical restraints (e.g. measures to prevent leaving bed or chair), psychotropic drugs (e.g. antidepressants, sedatives) and non-consensual care (e...

BACKGROUND: Violence and aggression are common in inpatient mental health hospital settings and cause problems for staff, patients and organisations. An important factor in treatment efficacy is ward atmosphere, and one element of this is the violence prevention climate. OBJECTIVES: To develop and test the psychometric properties of a new scale to measure perceptions of the violence prevention climate among staff and patients in mental health inpatient settings...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper is to systematically review studies that discuss the experiences of vulnerable populations participating in research on sensitive topics. DESIGN: Systematic review performed according to PRISMA guidelines. DATA SOURCES: Thirteen databases were searched, locating 197 articles. Following removal of duplicates, screening and full text review, 31 studies remained to be critically appraised. REVIEW METHODS: As there was a mix of qualitative and quantitative articles, the Critical Appraisal Skills Program (CASP) toolkit and Effective Public Health Practice Project (EPHPP) tool were used to appraise the methodological quality of the articles...

BACKGROUND: Nursing shortages, particularly in critical care units, are a major concern worldwide. Job satisfaction is a key factor associated with the high turnover of critical care nurses. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this systematic review was to synthesize the evidence on critical care nurses' job satisfaction. Specific research questions were: 1. How is job satisfaction defined and measured in studies of critical care nurses? 2a. What is the level of job satisfaction among critical care nurses? 2b...

BACKGROUND: Caregivers of breast cancer survivors experience various types of burden, which in turn is linked to patients' physical and psychological status. Family resilience might be able to decrease caregiver burden and facilitate survivors' individual resilience, and individual resilience might be related to caregiver burden. Nevertheless, these relationships have not yet been confirmed. OBJECTIVE: To determine the relationships between family resilience, breast cancer survivors' resilience, and principal caregivers' caregiver burden, as well as determine whether breast cancer survivors' individual resilience plays a mediating role in the relationship between family resilience and caregiver burden...

BACKGROUND: Workplace bullying is one of the most prevalent work-related psychological and physical issues in health care facilities. Workplace bullying has detrimental effects not only on the bullied person/persons but also on health care facilities and care quality and patient safety. AIMS: To examine the prevalence of workplace bullying and the relationship between workplace bullying and perceived competence among Jordanian registered nurses working in private hospitals DESIGN: A cross-sectional survey study...

BACKGROUND: Professional caregivers bereave after patients' deaths. Such bereavement can exert considerable influences on huge numbers of professional caregivers and their clients. No study, however, has synthesized scattered evidence on the core process of such bereavement, and no corresponding model exists. AIM: To systematically review and synthesize the experience of bereavement after patients' deaths, and in particular, its core process, in professional caregivers' own descriptions in existing literature, and to propose an integrated model on that basis...

BACKGROUND: Physical inactivity is a major modifiable lifestyle risk factor associated with cardiovascular disease. Tai Chi is a safe and popular form of physical activity among older adults, yet direct comparisons are lacking between Tai Chi and brisk walking in their ability to reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors and improve psychosocial well-being. METHODS: 246 adults (mean age = 64.4 ± 9.8 years, age range = 30-91 years, 45.5% men) with hypertension and at least two but not more than three modifiable cardiovascular disease risk factors (diabetes, dyslipidaemia, overweight, physical inactivity and smoking) were randomly assigned to either Tai Chi (n = 82), brisk walking (n = 82) or control (n = 82) groups...

BACKGROUND: The Safewards model is gaining increasing acceptance in the mental health field in Australia and overseas. One of the most important goals of inpatient psychiatric services is to provide a safe and therapeutic environment for both patients and staff. However, this goal can be difficult to achieve if staff-patient interaction is not conducive to preventing violence and aggression. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to explore nursing staff perceptions of the factors impacting on their capacity to establish Safewards in acute adult inpatient wards...

BACKGROUND: Nurses are often responsible for the care of many patients at the same time and have to prioritise their daily nursing care activities. Prioritising the different assessed care needs and managing consequential conflicting expectations, challenges nurses' professional and moral values. OBJECTIVE: To explore and illustrate the key aspects of the ethical elements of the prioritisation of nursing care and its consequences for nurses. DESIGN, DATA SOURCES AND METHODS: A scoping review was used to analyse existing empirical research on the topics of priority setting, prioritisation and rationing in nursing care, including the related ethical issues...

BACKGROUND: Studies in multiple countries have found that the provision of aspiration abortion care by trained nurses, midwives, and other front-line health care workers is safe and acceptable to women. In the United States, most state abortion laws restrict the provision of abortion to physicians; nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and physician assistants, can legally perform medication abortion in only twelve states and aspiration abortion in five. Expansion of abortion care by these providers, consistent with their scopes of practice, could help alleviate the increasing difficulty of accessing abortion care in many states...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of diabetes is close to reaching an epidemic level, and health literacy has recently emerged as a concept that can influence the health outcomes of patients with diabetes. Health literacy was once defined from the perspective of basic reading and understanding skills, but this has now become more comprehensive to include the abilities and skills to assess, understand, appraise, communicate, and use health information. Nevertheless, there is no instrument reflecting the comprehensive health literacy relevant to diabetes...
