AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effectiveness and acceptability of interventions for maintaining nasogastric tubes (NGT) in adult stroke patients. BACKGROUND: Internationally, incidence of Cerebral Vascular Disease (CVD) continues to increase and stroke is the largest cause of complex disability in adults. Dysphagia is common following a stroke which necessitates feeding via a NGT. NGT are not well tolerated by stroke patients and may be frequently dislodged...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe lesbian, gay and bisexual parents' experiences of nurses' attitudes in child health care. BACKGROUND: Lesbian, gay and bisexual people are often reluctant to disclose their gender identity for fear of discrimination. This fear may lead to avoidance of healthcare for themselves or their children and may negatively affect families' health and well-being. DESIGN: A qualitative inductive design was employed. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 14 lesbian, gay or bisexual parents (11 mothers and 3 fathers) with child health care experiences in southern Sweden...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To clarify the meaning of sleep disturbance in people with diabetes and examine its antecedents, attributes, and consequences through concept analysis. BACKGROUND: Sleep is crucial for health, and people with diabetes are frequently beset with disturbances in their sleep. The concept of sleep disturbance in people with diabetes has not been clearly defined. The inconsistent use of sleep disturbance has created confusion and impeded our understanding of the sleep in people with diabetes...

AIMS: This study evaluates both concordance among those measurements obtained by three different pulse oximeters currently used by nursing professionals in hospital units and the factors which can influence this concordance. BACKGROUND: Many models of wireless pulse oximeters in the present market do not offer possibility of calibration and, therefore, they do not ensure patients' safety in daily clinical practice. DESIGN: This is a descriptive and cross-sectional study...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: Analyze crucial factors for determining care priority for patients with acute myocardial infarction based on the Manchester Triage System. BACKGROUND: Triage is the first potentially critical step in the care of myocardial infarction patients. However, there are still very few studies on the factors interfering in the lack of care priority for these patients, impacting their treatment and prognosis. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study with 217 patients in the emergency department of a Brazilian hospital...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This review aims to critically synthesise research related to the transition of Registered Nurses into new areas of clinical practice. BACKGROUND: Global workforce shortages and rising health care demands have encouraged Registered Nurses to move into new clinical settings. While a body of literature reports on the transition of newly qualified nurses, evidence surrounding the transition of more experienced Registered Nurses to new clinical areas remains poorly explored...

BACKGROUND: Acceptance of illness is a significant determinant of further coping with a disease. Development of illness acceptance may be associated with the sense of coherence and perception of social support. Cancer is an example of a crisis situation which affects both the patient and his/her close relatives. Consequently, acceptance of illness may be influenced by factors originating from both sides of caregiver-patient dyad. The aim of this study was to analyze direct and indirect interrelationships between perceived support and the sense of coherence (SOC) in patient-caregiver dyad, and acceptance of illness in cancer patients...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence on non-pharmacological approaches to care for behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia in older adults. BACKGROUND: Dementia is increasing in worldwide prevalence and can have severe and life-altering impacts on older adults. Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia can occur as a result of unmet needs and are distressing for family and caregivers. Many reviews have examined specific approaches to behaviours, but few have compared interventions for effectiveness and applicability across settings...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to identify illness trajectories in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by analyzing personal, social and functional dimensions related to ALS progression. BACKGROUND: Previous studies have considered some psychological distinct variables that may moderate illness progression, but no research has combined an extensive qualitative understanding of ALS patients' psychological characteristics and illness progression. DESIGN: A mixed method approach was used to combine quantitative and qualitative measures...

AIM: To understand the intersection of healthcare professionals' and care workers' culture and their provision of person-centred care for people with dementia. BACKGROUND: Due to the nature of global immigration and recruitment strategies, healthcare is provided by a culturally diverse workforce. Consequently, there is a need to understand healthcare professionals' and care workers' cultural values of illness, disease and dementia. Cultural values and beliefs regarding dementia and care of the older person differ, and currently there is a lack of clarity regarding the intersection of culture in the provision of person-centred dementia care...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: We wanted to determine the possible associations between higher levels of selected quality indicators and the characteristics of providers. BACKGROUND: In 2011, an ongoing project on a new model of family medicine practice was launched in Slovenia; the a family physicians' working team (a family physician and a practice nurse), was extended by a nurse practitioner working 0.5 full-time equivalents. This was an example of a personalised team approach to managing chronic patients...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the independent predictors of medication adherence among Singaporean patients following an ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack. BACKGROUND: Secondary prevention of stroke includes optimal control over modifiable risk factors, and medication adherence is important in controlling the effect of co-morbidities. However, there is a paucity of published literature on the topics of medication adherence among stroke patients, especially in the Asian population...

AIM: To investigate the assessment of pain intensity in the specific context of triage. BACKGROUND: Acute pain affects most patients admitted in emergency departments (ED) but pain relief in this setting remains insufficient. Evaluation of pain and its treatment at the time of patient triage expedites the administration of analgesia, but may be awkward at this time-pressured moment. The assessment of pain intensity by a validated pain scale is a critical initial step, and a patient's self-reporting is widely considered as the key to effective pain management...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To gain insight into the experience of recurrent venous leg ulcers from the individual's perspective and provide knowledge on potential risks of recurrence not previously investigated. BACKGROUND: Venous leg ulcers are a consequence of chronic venous disease and frequently recur. They are costly and can impact on physical and psychological health. Despite research suggesting the risk can be reduced through compression and lifestyle changes, recurrence rates are often high...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To obtain in-depth insight into the perceptions of nurse academics and other stakeholders regarding the importance, facilitators, and barriers for nurses combining clinical and academic work in university hospitals. BACKGROUND: Combining clinical practice and academic work facilitates the use of research findings for high-quality patient care. However, nurse academics move away from the bedside because clinical academic careers for nurses have not yet been established in the Netherlands...
