AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To acquire knowledge regarding the contents to be implemented in an interactive ICT-platform perceived to be relevant to health and self-care among older persons based on the literature, healthcare professionals and the older persons themselves. BACKGROUND: The growing ageing population places demands on the healthcare system to promote healthy ageing and to strengthen the older person's self-care ability. This requires innovative approaches to facilitate communication between the older person and healthcare professionals, and to increase the older person's participation in their care...

Jun Xie, Linjie Xu, Xiaomin Xu, Yunjuan Huang
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to identify whether patients with advanced cancers were at high risk of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)-related complications when treated with concurrent chemo-radiotherapy. BACKGROUND: PICCs are widely used in chemotherapy. However, catheter usage may elevate the risks of infections and thrombosis. It is important to identify the patients with high risk of PICC-related complications. To date, little is known about PICC-related complications in patients with advanced cancers and receiving concurrent chemo-radiotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Activity of daily living (ADL) is a crucial indicator of health status for institutionalized older adults. ADL is a dynamic process, and has differences in trajectory groups. DESIGN: This study was a 3-year longitudinal analysis of long-term care (LTC) facility residents in Taiwan...

AIM: To investigate the procedural aspects in inserting central venous catheters that minimise central line associated bloodstream infections rates in adult intensive care units through a structured literature review. BACKGROUND: In adult intensive care units (AICU), central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) are a major cause of high mortality rates and increased in costs due to the consequences of complications. METHODS: Eligible articles were identified by combining indexed keywords using Boolean operator of "AND" under databases of Ovid and CINAHL...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To explore the concept of role modelling in undergraduate nurse education and its effect on the personal and professional development of student nurses. BACKGROUND: Effective educative strategies are important for student nurses, who have to cope with learning in both clinical and university settings. Given the contemporary issues facing nurse education and practice in the United Kingdom (UK) it is timely and important to undertake pedagogical research into the concept of role modelling as an effective educative method...

Lotta Wikström, Kerstin Eriksson, Bengt Fridlund, Mats Nilsson, Kristofer Årestedt, Anders Broström
AIM AND OBJECTIVES: (I) to determine if a central tendency, median, based on patients' self-rated pain is a clinically applicable daily measure to show patients' postoperative pain on the first day after major surgery (II) and to determine the number of self-ratings required for the calculation of this measure. BACKGROUND: Perioperative pain traits in medical records are difficult to overview. The clinical applicability of a daily documented summarising measure of patients' self-rated pain scores is little explored...

AIM: To describe the experiences of women taking part in a yoga intervention trial for breast cancer-related lymphoedema. BACKGROUND: Around 20% of women will experience lymphoedema as a consequence of treatment for breast cancer.

REVIEW
Sonja Dawson, Doug Elliott, Debra Jackson
AIM: To appraise the literature related to voluntary humanitarian work provided by international nurses in low to middle income countries (LMICs). BACKGROUND: Nurses and other health professionals are engaged with both governmental and non-governmental organisations to provide care within international humanitarian relief and development contexts. Current literature describes accounts of charitable health professional activity within short-term health focused humanitarian trips; however, there is minimal research describing the care that nurses provide and the professional roles and tasks they fulfil whilst participating in international volunteer health care service...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To test the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture scale (NHSPSC) among staff in long-term care facilities. BACKGROUND: The NHSPSC scale is a standard tool for safety culture assessment in nursing homes. Extending its application to different types of long-term care facilities and varied ethnic populations is worth pursuing. DESIGN: A national random survey. METHODS: A total of 306 managers and staff completed the Chinese version of the NHSPSC scale (C-NHSPSC) among 30 long-term care facilities in Taiwan...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe how healthcare professionals facilitate patient illness understanding. BACKGROUND: Healthcare professionals and patients differ in their illness understanding. If the information provided by healthcare professionals is not adapted to the patient's daily life it may be unusable for the patient. Previous research has found that healthcare professionals should individualise the information to enable the patient to apply the knowledge to the personal situation and to develop illness understanding...

REVIEW
Christina Melin-Johansson, Rebecca Palmqvist, Linda Rönnberg
AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To review what is characteristic of registered nurses' intuition in clinical settings, in relationships, and in the nursing process. BACKGROUND: Intuition is a controversial concept and nurses believe that there are difficulties in how they should explain their nursing actions or decisions based on intuition. Much of the evidence from the body of research indicates that nurses value their intuition in a variety of clinical settings. More information on how nurses integrate intuition as a core element in daily clinical work would contribute to an improved understanding on how they go about this...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To observe student nurses' overall and moment-specific hand hygiene compliance during clinical placement. BACKGROUND: Hand hygiene is the single most important measure to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). However, research has shown low compliance among healthcare workers. During clinical placements, student nurses perform various nursing tasks and procedures to a large number of patients, requiring extensive patient contact. It is crucial that they practice correct hand hygiene in order to prevent healthcare-associated infections...

REVIEW
Emma Pascale Blakey, Helen Aveyard
AIM: The aim of this literature review is to explore the way in which sexual health care is perceived and experienced by students in clinical practice. BACKGROUND: Student nurses understand the need to learn about sexual health but report a variety of learning needs and experience challenges acquiring skills to deliver such care in part due to varied clinical experience. Furthermore, there is a paucity of data exploring clinical competence of sexual health care among student nurses...
