Canadian researchers have developed the Spirit At Work (SAW) tool for identifying the experiences of individuals who are passionate about and energized by their work. This article describes (a) what registered nurses perceive as contributing to their personal SAW; and (b) the relationships among resonant leadership, structural empowerment concepts, psychological empowerment concepts, SAW concepts, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and the demographic variables of experience, education, and rank in the RN workplace...

Competency to practise nursing is typically assessed by professional regulators who examine educational standards, credentials, and experience. But bureaucratic fit based on verification of documents and determination of clinical competence does not always coincide with cultural fit and ability to fulfil the role of health professional according to a country's standards. The authors examine the challenges that lack of cultural fit can pose to the integration of internationally educated nurses (IENs) transitioning to a new health-care system...

Clinical work demands can overwhelm new graduate nurses (NGNs) and cause significant stress as they begin practice in their first place of employment. The authors examine the impact of a government-supported extended orientation and mentorship program intended to facilitate the transition of NGNs to professional practice. A longitudinal trend study was conducted over 3 years of the program (2008, 2009, and 2010). In each year, 1 third of surveyed NGNs and over 3 quarters of surveyed employers responded. The researchers conducted 21 focus groups with 106 health-care organizations, 53 interviews with NGNs, and 15 interviews with nurse mentors from the frontline staff...

It is well documented that nursing is concerned about the social support needs of older adults and the effects of those needs on health and well-being. Using survey data from the Atlantic Seniors Housing Research Alliance, the authors explore the emotional and informational social support needs of community-dwelling Canadians aged 65 and older living in the Atlantic provinces. The results indicate that these needs are not being met fully and that they increase with age. Also, men and women report different insufficiencies for specific needs; more men than women report having no support across all items...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Jennifer Martindale-Adams, Linda O Nichols, Robert Burns, Marshall J Graney, Jeffrey Zuber
The purpose of this study was to determine if telephone support groups for dementia caregivers have an effect on bother with patient behaviours, burden, depression, and general well-being. The randomized controlled trial compared telephone support groups (15 groups of 5 or 6 caregivers) with control groups (print materials). Groups met 14 times over 1 year. The 1-hour sessions included content on education, coping skills, and support. Data were collected at baseline and at 6 and 12 months. The sample comprised 154 caregivers, 77 per arm, providing care to veterans with dementia or a veteran caregiver...

Older adults in Canada who have multiple illnesses and are awaiting placement in long-term care are greatly impacted by alternate level of care (ALC). The purpose of this narrative study was to record the experiences of hospitalized older adults and their family caregivers after the patient is designated as requiring ALC. The researchers conducted 21 interviews with 5 older patients and 4 of their family caregivers. The interviews were transformed into stories summarizing the participants' experiences and analyzed for common themes...

There is growing interest in informed decision-making about breast cancer screening with mammography and growing advocacy for the provision of balanced information about potential benefits and harms. The authors report on a survey evaluating nurses' intention to support women targeted by the Quebec Breast Cancer Screening Program in making informed decisions about breast cancer screening with mammography. Of the 840 questionnaires completed, 618 were included in the data analysis. The mean +/- standard deviation score for intention was 1...

The purpose of this research was to examine the perspectives of professionals on youth smoking prevention. The researchers used a qualitative descriptive design with a purposive sample of 9 professionals consisting of elementary school teachers, public health nurses, and tobacco control experts from non-governmental organizations. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and were analyzed for themes. The view of the participants was that although parents have the main responsibility for educating their children about smoking, a multipronged approach, which also includes school and society more generally, will have the greatest effect...

Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care (HOBIC), a program funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, introduces a collection of evidence-based clinical outcome measures reflective of nursing care. The authors report on an evaluation of the experiences of nurse early adopters of HOBIC in home care. The findings reveal challenges and nuances associated with the introduction of HOBIC and the use of supporting technologies in the delivery of home nursing care. Future implementation efforts should focus on optimizing the usability of technology and the usefulness of HOBIC in nursing practice...

Although women incarcerated by the criminal justice system encounter significant challenges to their health, there has been little research focusing on their health practices. To contribute to the research literature on the health experiences of criminalized women, the authors conducted a multi-method study as part of a program of research exploring the health promotion and health-literacy skills of women in conflict with the law. Conducting research in an incarcerated setting posed unique challenges and ethical dilemmas that problematized each phase of data collection...

A phenomenological investigation was undertaken to examine the effects of the 2008-09 global economic recession on the health of unemployed blue-collar autoworkers in the Canadian province of Ontario between September and November 2009. A total of 22 men and 12 women took part. Participants completed a quantitative demographic and financial questionnaire. The qualitative aspect of the study consisted of a phenomenological component comprising semi-structured focus group sessions lasting 2 to 2.5 hours. The number of years employed ranged from 2 to 31...

Nurses striving to provide quality health care for and with Indigenous individuals and communities in Australia face particular challenges. Past and present discriminatory or non-responsive health-care practices and policies have caused many Aboriginal women and their families to mistrust health-care professionals and practices. It is vital that nurses develop culturally safe and respectful ways of working in partnership with Aboriginal colleagues and clients. The author discusses how nurses in both Canada and Australia have drawn on critical and postcolonial feminist theories, Indigenous epistemologies and methodologies, and models of cultural safety to develop a more responsive, decolonizing approach to health care and training...

This article explores the perspectives of low-income women in order to better understand the social context that shapes their infant-feeding perspectives and experiences. The authors used purposive sampling to conduct 3 focus groups with 19 women who were formula-feeding their infants in 1 urban and 2 rural communities in the eastern region of the island of Newfoundland in Canada. Elements of the social context for infant-feeding included the prevalence of myths and misinformation about breastfeeding; cultural expectations about infant behaviour; the postnatal experience, including the medicalization of birth and breastfeeding; partner support and child-care workload; cultural stigma of breastfeeding; and a moralizing ideology that equates breastfeeding with "good mothering...

Asthma and allergies are common conditions among Aboriginal children and adolescents. The purpose of this study was to assess the health and health-care inequities experienced by affected children and by their parents. Aboriginal research assistants conducted individual interviews with 46 Aboriginal children and adolescents who had asthma and/or allergies (26 First Nations, 19 Métis, 1 Inuit) and 51 parents or guardians of these children and adolescents. Followup group interviews were conducted with 16 adolescents and 25 parents/ guardians...
