AIMS: To understand how decisions are made to transfer dying patients home from critical care units. BACKGROUND: Many people prefer a home death, but a high proportion die in critical care units. Transferring dying patients home is recognized to be complex but transfer decision-making itself remains unclear. DESIGN: Integrative review. DATA SOURCES: Seven bibliographic databases (origin - 2015), grey literature and reference lists were searched...

AIM: 'To explore nurse managers' behaviours, attitudes, perceived social norms and behavioural control in the prevention and management of patient and visitor aggression in general hospitals. BACKGROUND: Patient and visitor aggression in general hospitals is a global problem that incurs substantial human suffering and organizational cost. Managers are key persons for creating low-aggression environments, yet their role and behaviour in reducing patient and visitor aggression remains unexplored...

AIM: To identify those contexts and mechanisms that enable or constrain the implementation of Rapid Response Systems on acute general hospital wards to recognise and respond to patient deterioration. BACKGROUND: Rapid Response Systems allow deteriorating patients to be recognised using Early Warning Systems, referred early via escalation protocols and managed at the bedside by competent staff. DESIGN: Realist Evaluation. METHODS: The research design was an embedded multiple case study approach of four wards in two hospitals in Northern Ireland which followed the principles of Realist Evaluation...

Kushwanth Koya, Jane Anderson, Petia Sice
AIM: To report a potential knowledge exchange between nursing studies and the results obtained from a study conducted into the attributes of embodied leadership. BACKGROUND: Leadership theories have been applied to evaluate, improve and train nursing practitioners in several previous studies. However, leadership research has entered a new phase where the focus is to produce sustainable leaders through authenticity and compassion, the same two characteristics identified as being of most success in emergent nursing practice...

AIM: To psychometrically test the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy and compare it with the Swedish Pregnancy Planning Scale. BACKGROUND: The incidence of unplanned pregnancies is an important indicator of reproductive health. The London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy measures pregnancy planning by taking contraceptive use, timing, intention to become pregnant, desire for pregnancy, partner agreement and pre-conceptual preparations into account. It has, however, previously not been psychometrically evaluated using confirmatory factor analysis...

Catherine Cook, Vanessa Schouten, Mark Henrickson, Sandra Mcdonald
AIM: To analyse the accounts of staff, family and residents in order to advance ethical insights into intimacy and sexuality in residential care. BACKGROUND: Discourses of ageing readily construct people in residential aged care as post-sexual, vulnerable and at risk of sexual exploitation and therefore expressions of intimacy and sexuality may be responded to as deviant and inherently risky. Staff may manage decision-making tacitly, without recourse to policies and education...

AIMS: To examine the relationship between fatigue and sickness absence in nurses from a pediatric hospital over 12 months of follow-up. A secondary aim was to identify other work and personal factors that predict sickness absence. BACKGROUND: Sickness absence is often related to worker-fatigue, yet few studies have explored this relationship in nurses despite documented high fatigue levels. DESIGN: The study used retrospective cohort design...

AIM: This study aims to explore nurse assistants' and registered nurses' responses to older persons' expressions of emotional needs during home care visits.

AIMS: To investigate the associations between the quality of the physical environment and the psychological and social well-being of older people living in residential care facilities. BACKGROUND: Many older people in care facilities have cognitive and physical frailties and are at risk of experiencing low levels of well-being. High quality physical environments can support older people as frailty increases and promote their well-being. Although the importance of the physical environment for residents' well-being is recognised, more research is needed...

Chronic liver diseases are very common worldwide and represent a major healthcare issue (GBD 2013 Mortality and Causes of Death Collaborators, 2015). Chronic liver diseases are characterized by inflammation of the liver, which may be secondary to distinct etiological factors, including hepatitis C or B infection, increased alcohol consumption, or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

EDITORIAL
Brendan McCormack, Roger Watson
In the last 10 years or more there has been a proliferation of 'innovations' under the guise of improving patient safety and quality improvement. Service and quality improvements have a dominant focus on small-scale projects, incorporating locally collected 'evidence' and engaging in small 'tests of change' usually using PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) cycles that get scaled up across organisations if considered to be successful.
