#1
Sarah Mollman, Lori Candela
AIM: To use a concept analysis to determine a clear definition of the term "intentional learning" for use in nursing. BACKGROUND: The term intentional learning has been used for years in educational, business, and even nursing literature. It has been used to denote processes leading to higher order thinking and the ability to use knowledge in new situations; both of which are important skills to develop in nursing students. But the lack of a common, accepted definition of the term makes it difficult for nurse educators to base instruction and learning experiences on or to evaluate its overall effectiveness in educating students for diverse, fast-paced clinical practices...

Jane Mushta, Kathy L Rush, Elizabeth Andersen
PROBLEM: The aim of this concept analysis was to clarify failure to rescure as a nurse-sensitive indicator. Although the concept of failure to rescue as a nurse-sensitive outcome has appeared in the nursing literature for over a decade, conceptual clarity is needed to address its variable and ambiguous use in health care. METHODS: Walker and Avant's eight-stage method of concept analysis was used to explore the concept of failure to rescue in nursing practice. Twenty-one papers were retrieved from Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) and MEDLINE databases and selected for review and synthesis...

AIM: A multidisciplinary concept analysis of support of the nurse. BACKGROUND: Nurses provide support on a daily basis to their patients and this aspect of support has been well established in current literature, yet support of the nurse rather than from the nurse is not readily established in recent research. The gaps in the analysis of support of nurses are addressed from a multidisciplinary approach. METHODS: Using the Walker and Avant's method, a concept analysis of support of the nurse was conducted...

AIM: To report an analysis of the concept of patient engagement in prenatal care. BACKGROUND: Engagement in health care has been widely discussed but vaguely defined. Patients benefit more from their health care when they are fully engaged in their care. Patient engagement in prenatal care is an important element of prenatal care utilization that has not been analyzed, standardized as a concept, or measured. DESIGN: Concept analysis. DATA SOURCES: CINAHL, MEDLINE, PsycINFO databases, and the internet were searched for literature published in English with a focus on peer-reviewed journals from disciplines of business, allied health sciences, health administration, psychology, and nursing, focusing on the period of 2010-2015...

The growth of online education has created a learning environment that permits nontraditional students the opportunity for degree completion without the burden of relocation. Given the shortage of nurses at all educational levels, many institutions of higher learning have created online programs to meet the needs of both the student and the profession as a whole. Although convenient for the student and beneficial for the nursing profession, the online learning environment can present numerous challenges. Among these challenges are acts of student incivility-creating a difficult work environment for faculty and, at times, negatively affecting other students...

The concept of lay worker health literacy is created by concurrently analyzing and synthesizing two intersecting concepts, lay workers and health literacy. Articulation of this unique intersection is the result of implementing a simplified Wilson's Concept Analysis Procedure. This process incorporates the following components: a) selecting a concept, b) determining the aims/purposes of analysis, c) identifying all uses of the concept, d) determining defining attributes, e) identifying a model case, f) identifying borderline, related, contrary, and illegitimate cases, g) identifying antecedents and consequences, and h) defining empirical referents...

Chronic disease is common, costly and the epidemic of the 21st century. Primary care providers seek new and innovative approaches to prevent chronic illness. Since the majority of chronic illness management occurs outside a physician's office, providers must use different techniques to support daily self-management of any chronic illness. Assisting the individual to develop life skills to support self-management is one way to improve patient outcomes. Technology, that is easily accessed, may provide an additional method to develop and individual's self-management skills to prevent diabetes...

Worsening quality indicators of health care shake public trust. Although safety and quality of care in hospitals can be improved, healthcare quality remains conceptually and operationally vague. Therefore, the aim of this analysis is to clarify the concept of healthcare quality. Walker and Avant's method of concept analysis, the most commonly used in nursing literature, provided the framework. We searched general and medical dictionaries, public domain websites, and 5 academic literature databases. Search terms included health care and quality, as well as healthcare and quality...
