AIM: To understand parents' experiences and needs during a child's end-of-life care at home and to identify systemic factors that influence its provision. BACKGROUND: A child's end-of-life phase is an extremely difficult time for the whole family. Parents have specific needs, especially when they care for a dying child at home. DESIGN: Concurrent embedded mixed methods design. METHODS: This sub-study of the nationwide survey, 'Paediatric End-of-Life Care Needs in Switzerland' (2012-2015) included 47 children who received EOL care at home from 2011-2012...

Julie Tomlinson, Jonathan Pinkney, Linda Adams, Elizabeth Stenhouse, Alison Bendall, Oonagh Corrigan, Gayle Letherby
AIMS: To explore the impact of the diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome on health/ill health identity, how women experience this diagnosis and their health beliefs. BACKGROUND: polycystic ovary syndrome is a common and heterogeneous condition, giving rise to a wide range of different health concerns. Previous research on polycystic ovary syndrome has been dominated by the medical perspective and less is known about the experiences and needs of women. DESIGN: A qualitative study of 32 premenopausal adult women with polycystic ovary syndrome (diagnosis confirmed by Rotterdam criteria), aged between 18-45 years, recruited from a primary and secondary care setting...

Sandra Sülz, Kristina Langhammer, Michael Becker-Peth, Bernhard Roth
AIM: To investigate the drivers of perceived work intensity among neonatal intensive care unit nurses. BACKGROUND: The consequences of high work intensity have been studied extensively, yet setting-specific drivers have received less attention.

Jennie Craske, Bernie Carter, Ian H Jarman, Lyvonne N Tume
AIMS: The aim of the study was to evaluate registered children's nurses' approaches to the assessment and management of withdrawal syndrome in children. BACKGROUND: Assessment of withdrawal syndrome is undertaken following critical illness when the child's condition may be unstable with competing differential diagnoses. Assessment tools aim to standardise and improve recognition of withdrawal syndrome. Making the right decisions in complex clinical situations requires a degree of mental effort and it is not known how nurses make decisions when undertaking withdrawal assessments...

Elisabeth Jacob, Christine Duffield, Darren Jacob
AIM: The aim of this study is to develop an assessment tool to measure the critical thinking ability of nurses. BACKGROUND: As an increasing number of complex patients are admitted to hospitals, the importance of nurses recognising changes in health status and picking up on deterioration is more important. To detect early signs of complication requires critical thinking skills. Registered nurses are expected to commence their clinical careers with the necessary critical thinking skills to ensure safe nursing practice...

AIMS: To describe changes in the nutritional status of nursing home residents over a period of one year and identify factors associated with a decline in nutritional status. BACKGROUND: The maintenance of good nutritional status is important for nursing home residents.

Danica Železnik, Helena Blažun Vošner, Peter Kokol
BACKGROUND: Bibliometric studies of single journals have been performed, but to the best of our knowledge, bibliometric analysis and bibliometric mapping have not yet been used to analyse the literature production of the Journal of Advanced Nursing. AIM: The aim of this study was to examine the publication characteristics and development of Journal of Advanced Nursing during its 40-year history.

Randi Tofthagen, Anne Grethe Talseth, Lisbeth Maria Fagerstøm
AIM: To explore, describe and understand former patients' experiences of recovery from self-harm. BACKGROUND: Previous research shows that a person's development towards a more secure self-image, mastery of their emotions, an understanding of what triggers self-harm and mastery of new ways to cope with problems are central to recovery. Recovery from self-harm is still a relatively new field of research. DESIGN: A phenomenological hermeneutical approach...

Simon Cassidy, Michael Coffey, Fiona Murphy
AIM: To develop a substantive theoretical explanation of how mentors make sense of their experiences where nursing students are on the borderline of achievement of competence in clinical practice. BACKGROUND: The reluctance of registered nurse mentors to fail nursing students in clinical practice despite concerns about competence remains a contemporary issue in international healthcare education. Mentors' assessment decisions have considerable impact for a variety of key stakeholders, not least for students in these circumstances...

AIM: To investigate the content and meaning of nurses' administrative work. BACKGROUND: Nurses often report that administrative work keeps them away from bedside care. The content and meaning of this work remains insufficiently explored. DESIGN: Comparative case studies. METHOD: The investigation took place in 2014.

AIMS: The aim of this study was to develop the Patient Participation in Pressure Injury Prevention (PPPIP) scale and undertake initial testing of some of its psychometric properties. BACKGROUND: Clinical practice guidelines recommend patient involvement in pressure injury prevention. There is some evidence that patients are willing to participate in this activity but there are currently no instruments to measure this participation. DESIGN: This methodological study used data collected as part of a cluster randomised trial to modify and test the PPPIP scale...

AIMS: To measure the inter-rater reliability of the Oulu Patient Classification (OPCq) and to discuss existing methods of reliability testing. BACKGROUND: The OPCq, part of the RAFAELA(®) System, has been developed to assist nursing managers with the proper allocation of nursing resources. Due to the increased intensity of inpatient care during recent years, there is a need for the reliability testing of the classification, which has been in clinical use for 20 years...

AIM: To examine how patient safety indicators and processes and structures of nursing care have changed since the 2012 introduction of Swiss Diagnosis-Related Groups. BACKGROUND: Diagnosis-Related Groups have been implemented worldwide; yet, research findings regarding their impact on efficiency and quality of care remain inconsistent. The Matching Registered Nurse Services with Changing Care Demands study will assess how structures, processes and patient and nurse outcomes have changed in Swiss acute care hospitals since the introduction of Swiss Diagnosis-Related Groups...

AIM: To describe the process of how nurse and physician managers in formalized dyads work together to address clinical management issues in the surgical division of one hospital setting. BACKGROUND: Nurse and physician managers are uniquely positioned to co-lead and transform healthcare delivery. However, little is known about how this management dyad functions in the healthcare setting DESIGN: A constructivist grounded theory approach was used to investigate the process of how nurse and physician managers work together in formalized dyads in an urban Canadian university affiliated teaching hospital...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to determine construct validity of the Dutch Essentials of Magnetism II © instrument, designed to assess nursing practice environments, using hypotheses testing. BACKGROUND: Reduction of hospital length of stay and the number of inpatient beds increases care intensity. Educational levels and numbers of nursing staff in hospitals, however, do not match this increase, resulting in a strain on quality of care and patient safety. A possible answer to existing concerns about quality of care may be the creation of a productive and healthy practice environment, as this has an impact on the quality of care...
