S Dequeker, A Van Lancker, A Van Hecke
BACKGROUND: Several studies reported poor to moderate agreement between patient- and nurse-reported pain assessment. Many of these studies focused on a specific patient group. So far, no study studied the level of agreement in the assessment of patient-related barriers between patients and nurses. AIMS: The aim of the study was to identify if nurses and patients equally assessed pain intensity and patient-related barriers to pain management in hospitalised patients...

EDITORIAL
Azita Emami, Hilaire Thompson, Sarah Gimbel
Nursing is a relatively new profession throughout the world. In the USA, the first Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) degree was granted by Yale University in 1937, and it was not until the mid-1950s that there were graduate degrees in nursing science. Thus, nursing education is uniquely positioned to be nimble and build an infrastructure appropriate to the complexity of contemporary and future healthcare challenges.

Nader Aghakhani, Michelle Cleary, Abbas Zarei, Violeta Lopez
AIM: To explore attitudes to safe-induced abortion among pregnant women in Iran. BACKGROUND: In Islamic teachings abortion is generally forbidden. However in specific circumstances abortion may be permitted and currently, in Iran, the law allows termination of pregnancy only if three specialist physicians confirm that the pregnancy outcome may be harmful for the mother during pregnancy or after birth. DESIGN: Pilot, descriptive survey. METHODS: A 15-item structured questionnaire focusing on attitudes to safe-induced abortion was developed and pilot tested...

Christopher Helms, Anne Gardner, Elizabeth Mcinnes
AIM: A discussion of the application of metadata, paradata and embedded data in web-based survey research, using two completed Delphi surveys as examples. BACKGROUND: Metadata, paradata and embedded data use in web-based Delphi surveys has not been described in the literature. The rapid evolution and widespread use of online survey methods imply paper-based Delphi methods will likely become obsolete. Commercially-available web-based survey tools offer a convenient and affordable means of conducting Delphi research...

Julie Jean Lanz, Valentina Bruk-Lee
AIM: To examine the relative effects of interpersonal conflict and workload on job outcomes (turnover intentions, burnout, injuries) and examine if resilience moderates the indirect effects of conflict and workload on job outcomes via job-related negative affect. BACKGROUND: There is interest in understanding resilience in the nursing profession. Placing resilience in the context of the Emotion-Centered Model of Occupational Stress (Spector, 1998) is a novel approach to understanding how resilience ameliorates the negative effects of workplace stressors...

Michela Piredda, Valerio Ghezzi, Elisa Fenizia, Anna Marchetti, Tommasangelo Petitti, Maria Grazia De Marinis, Alessandro Sili
AIM: To develop and psychometrically test the Italian-language Nurse Caring Behaviours Scale, a short measure of nurse caring behaviour as perceived by inpatients. BACKGROUND: Patient perceptions of nurses' caring behaviours are a predictor of care quality. Caring behaviours are culture-specific, but no measure of patient perceptions has previously been developed in Italy. Moreover, existing tools show unclear psychometric properties, are burdensome for respondents, or are not widely applicable...

AIM: To compare nurses' job satisfaction and perceptions of transformational leadership style of their manager among four different nurse/manager gender dyads in Saudi Arabia. BACKGROUND: Women and men differ on many behavioral characteristics and are influenced by the cultural environment. Understanding these differences may have an impact on leadership behaviors and job satisfaction. DESIGN: A descriptive analysis of one-time survey data collected in 2011 from Saudi nurses employed in six general public hospitals located in three cities...

Eileen Willis, Jenny Carryer, Clare Harvey, Maria Pearson, Julie Henderson
AIMS: To outline the way in which the culture of austerity arising from the Global Financial Crisis has been used by Australian and New Zealand governments to maintain and extend health care budget cuts, through new public management strategies leading to missed nursing care. BACKGROUND: Ten years on the cost of the Global Financial Crisis continues to be borne by tax payers and those employed by the welfare state, yet analysis shows clearly that it was caused by a failure to adequately regulate markets, particularly the banks and multinational corporations...

Rosemary A Taylor, Steven S Taylor
AIM: To suggest an alternative approach to improving recognition of horizontal violence using enactor types identified in a study exploring nurses' perceptions of horizontal violence. BACKGROUND: Horizontal violence is an umbrella term used to describe a range of aggressive behaviors between nurse colleagues. It is suggested that nurses do not recognize the phenomenon when they witness or experience it, contributing to its perpetuation. DESIGN: This was a qualitative, descriptive study undertaken to inform theory development and the design of future interventions to address horizontal violence...

AIM: To validate the initial psychometric properties of a Healthcare Needs Scale for Youth with Congenital Heart Disease. BACKGROUND: As the number of patients with congenital heart disease surviving to adulthood increases, the transitional healthcare needs for adolescents and young adults with congenital heart disease require investigation. However, few tools comprehensively identify the healthcare needs of youth with congenital heart disease. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was employed to examine the psychometric properties of the Healthcare Needs Scale for Youth with Congenital Heart Disease...

Ramona Backhaus, Hilde Verbeek, Erik van Rossum, Elizabeth Capezuti, Jan P H Hamers
AIMS: To understand how nursing homes employ baccalaureate-educated registered nurses (BRNs) and how they view the unique contributions of BRNs to staff and residents in their organizations. BACKGROUND: Although providing care for nursing home residents is complex and thus requires a high level of skills, organizations often struggle to recruit and retain BRNs. Some nursing home organizations do not employ BRNs at all. Among those that do, it is unknown how well these organizations make use of BRNs' expertise or if their roles are different from those of other staff...

Aseel S Abuzour, Penny J Lewis, Mary P Tully
AIM: To explore how secondary care pharmacist and nurse independent prescribers clinically reason when making prescribing decisions. BACKGROUND: Clinical reasoning is a central component of prescribers' competence and professional autonomy when reaching a clinically appropriate decision. Like doctors, pharmacist and nurse independent prescribers in the United Kingdom have extensive prescribing rights, but little is known about their clinical reasoning. DESIGN: A qualitative approach using a think-aloud methodology and semi-structured interviews...
