REVIEW
Marie Elf, Susanna Nordin, Helle Wijk, Kevin J McKee
AIM: To identify instruments measuring the quality of the physical healthcare environment, describe their psychometric properties. BACKGROUND: The physical healthcare environment is regarded as a quality factor for healthcare. To facilitate evidence-based design there is a need for valid and usable instruments that can evaluate the design of the healthcare environment. DESIGN: Systematic psychometric review. DATA SOURCES: A systematic literature search in Medline, CINAHL, Psychinfo, Avery index and reference lists of eligible papers (1990-2016)...

AIM: To establish the connection between values, competencies, selected job characteristics and evidence-based practice use. BACKGROUND: Nurses rarely apply evidence-based practice in everyday work. A recent body of research has looked at various variables explaining the use of evidence-based practice, but not values and competencies. DESIGN: A cross-sectional, non-experimental quantitative explorative research design. METHODS: Standardized instruments were used (Nurse Professional Values Scale-R, Nurse Competence Scale, Evidence-Based Practice Beliefs and Implementation Scale)...

AIM: To explore the experiences of patients who were admitted to the neurological ward during an intervention - inspired by Protected Mealtime - that changed the traditional mealtime practice. BACKGROUND: Mealtimes are busy events in hospitals and patients are often interrupted by high-priority tasks (e.g., taking blood samples) while eating. Protected Mealtimes is a British concept that changes the organizational structure of mealtimes and provides a focus on the mealtime by ceasing all non-acute activities while patients are eating...

AIM: The aim of this study was to confirm the psychometric properties of Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index in a military population. This study also demonstrates association rule analysis, a contemporary exploratory technique.

Elizabeth Halcomb, Moira Stephens, Julianne Bryce, Elizabeth Foley, Christine Ashley
AIMS: To explore the current role of general practice nurses and the scope of Australian nursing practice to inform the development of national professional practice standards for Australian general practice nurses. BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of nurses have been employed in Australian general practice to meet the growing demand for primary care services. This has brought significant changes to the nursing role. Competency standards for nurses working in general practice were first developed in Australia in 2005, but limited attention has been placed on articulating the contemporary scope of practice for nurses in this setting...

AIM: To explore first-time pregnant women's expectations and factors influencing their choice of birthplace. BACKGROUND: Although outcomes and advantages for low-risk childbearing women giving birth in midwifery-led units and home compared with obstetric units have been investigated previously, there is little information on the factors that influence women's choice of place of birth.

AIM: To identify items for a new instrument that measures emotional behaviour abilities of Meaningful Learning, according to Fink's Taxonomy. BACKGROUND: Meaningful Learning is an active process that promotes a wider and deeper understanding of concepts. It is the result of an interaction between new and prior knowledge and produces a long-term change of knowledge and skills. To measure Meaningful Learning capability, it is very important in the education of health professionals to identify problems or special learning needs...

AIM: This study examined the impact of Family Group Conferences on coercive treatment in adult psychiatry. BACKGROUND: Coercive treatment in psychiatry infringes the fundamental rights of clients, including the right to control their lives. A promising intervention is the Family Group Conference (FGC), which has the potential to prevent crises through the integration of the expertise of informal and professional networks. METHOD: From 2013 - 2015, 41 FGCs were studied in three regions in the Netherlands...

AIMS: To review systematically the psychometric properties of instruments used to measure intention to work with older people. BACKGROUND: Nursing students are part of the future healthcare workforce; thus, being aware of their intention to work with older people would provide valuable insights to nursing education and practice. Despite a plethora of research on measuring intention to work with older people, a valid and reliable instrument has not been identified...

AIM: To evaluate and quantify intervention fidelity of a symptom management protocol through implementation of a scorecard, using an exemplar study of caregiver-delivered reflexology for breast cancer patients.

AIMS: This paper discusses the ways researchers may become open to manifold interpretations of lived experience through thematic analysis that follows the tradition of hermeneutic phenomenology. BACKGROUND: Martin Heidegger's thinking about historical contexts of understandings and the notions of 'alētheia' and 'techne' disclose what he called meaning of lived experience, as the 'unchanging Being of changing beings'. While these notions remain central to hermeneutic phenomenological research, novice phenomenologists usually face the problem of how to incorporate these philosophical tenets into thematic analysis...
