AIM: To explore the relationship between inner strength and health threats among community-dwelling older women. BACKGROUND: Inner strength is described as a resource that promotes experiences of health, despite adversities. Inner strength and its dimensions (i.e. connectedness, creativity, firmness and flexibility) can be assessed using the Inner Strength Scale (ISS). Exploring attributes of weaker inner strength may yield valuable information about areas to focus on in enhancing a person's inner strength and may ultimately lead to the perception of better health...

AIM: To explore the inter-play between external facilitation and nursing home contexts relative to intervention outcomes. BACKGROUND: The Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services framework is frequently used to theoretically inform implementation and research in nursing and recent reviews indicate high face validity for health services. However, the inter-play and relationship between framework sub- elements of evidence, context and facilitation and the prospective utility in non-English speaking contexts warrant further illumination...

EDITORIAL
Lisa Mckenna, Simon J Cooper, Robyn Cant, Fiona Bogossian
Professors of nursing and midwifery are recognized as discipline leaders and thus have a key role to play in the development of disciplinary knowledge, especially through their research activity. Watson and Thompson (2008) paraphrased the research and scholarship roles of the professoriate, from the UK National Conference of University Professors, as a requirement to "maintain individual authoritative industry in scholarship and research" (p 981).

#19
EDITORIAL
Melanie Birks, Roger Watson
Doctoral snobbery exists. It's a thing (Parnell, 2016). It's an extension of 'academic snobbery' (Martin & Sorensen, 2014) more generally, and probably originates from 'title snobbery' (Valverde, Mueller, Paciotti, & Conway, 2016). Successfully completing a doctoral qualification is no small achievement and so some degree of elitism is probably reasonable. But is it reasonable for there to be an elitist division between the traditional PhD and the relative newcomer, the professional doctorate? And what about the doctorate in nursing practice (DNP) now apparently overtaking the PhD in the USA? Our recent participation in a round table on doctoral education in Hong Kong prompted us to explore the issue further and, by implication, to invite further comment...
