REVIEW
Neesha Oozageer Gunowa, Marie Hutchinson, Joanne Brooke, Debra Jackson
AIM: In this paper we aimed to explore the literature to ascertain what research evidence exists in relation to the identification of pressure injuries (PIs) in people with dark skin tones (DSTs). BACKGROUND: PI development has been widely researched and documented; however, much of this work does not address ethnicity or race, and assumes Caucasian-ness. Thus, the perceptions of people with DSTs and the influence of skin pigmentation on identification and management of PIs is under examined...

AIMS: To explore the perceptions and experiences of parental professional help-seeking for infant sleep and sleep-related concerns. BACKGROUND: Infant sleep is a frequent concern for parents. However, very little is known about the reasons parents seek, do not seek, or delay seeking professional attention about their concerns related to infant sleep.

DESIGN: A prospective follow-up study. METHODS: We recruited, at a teaching hospital in southern Taiwan, a convenience sample of 30 couples whose babies either miscarried or were stillborn.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES/BACKGROUND: The work of specialist nursing has been under scrutiny for many years in the UK due to a perception that it is not cost-effective. A common issue is the lack of consistency of job titles, which causes confusion to the public, employing organisations, colleagues and commissioners of services. Lack of consistency has implications for the wider perception of advanced specialist practice in the worldwide community and the workforce more generally. This study aims to understand the variation in job titles in the UK population...

Swapna Kunhunny, Debra Salmon
BACKGROUND: Clinical research nurses (CRN) make a significant contribution to healthcare research within the UK and internationally. However, lack of clarity about their role, and scope of practice renders their contribution within the profession and in the minds of the wider public invisible. This has implications in terms of promoting the role nurses play not only in terms of recruitment, retention, and care of research participants but also as research leaders of the future. AIM: To examine the perspectives of CRNs in the UK on their professional role identity, in order to inform the professional practice of Clinical Research Nursing...
