The aims of this study were to identify factors associated with pregnant women's intention to receive the pertussis vaccine during pregnancy, using the Health Belief Model; while comparing between pregnant native-born Israeli women and Israeli women born in the former Soviet Union. Convenience and snowball sampling methods were used to recruit 200 pregnant Israeli native-born women and women born in the former Soviet Union. Data were collected using a cross-sectional questionnaire survey. Regression results revealed that susceptibility to pertussis, seriousness of pertussis, perceived benefits of the vaccine, knowledge of risk factors of pertussis, and general health motivation together explained 76% of the variance of women's intention to receive the pertussis vaccine...

Community nurses play a crucial role in early detection and timely diagnosis of dementia. However, they are usually not prepared for the role through their formal education, particularly in low- and middle-income countries due to undeveloped nursing curriculum in dementia care. This paper describes a two-arm cluster-randomized controlled trial to improve community nurses' knowledge, attitudes, and practice changes using an innovative and interactive mobile phone applet-based activity in primary care settings...

Nursing staff in a medical/surgical acute care 34-bed hospital unit were challenged by low percentages of patients able to recall nurse leader rounding activity (NLR). NLR occurred daily for all patients, yet many did not recall visits by nursing leaders when surveyed at discharge. Care giver credibility suffered as non-nursing executives questioned if NLR consistently occurred. Several mechanisms were used to facilitate patient NLR recall: scripted NLR verbiage/keywords, nursing uniform leadership insignia and white lab coats, sharing of business cards, handwritten notes on patient communication white boards, multimedia leadership insignia on leader e-tablets, and visits with family members: patient NLR recall did not improve...
