EDITORIAL
Alison Leary
On Good Friday I watched a nurse colleague resuscitate a man at a football match in front of thousands of people. It was a high pressure situation but to a colleague with thirty years' experience it was a calm and ordered intervention. The outcome was a good one for the patient and the process seemed effortless-belying the skill and expertise needed to do it. The environment is a difficult one-with plenty of decisions to make and risks to manage in addition to delivering care-all done with expertise and compassion...

AIMS: To explore the experiences of parents with babies born between 28-32 weeks gestation during transition through the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and discharge to home. BACKGROUND: Following birth of a preterm baby, parents undergo a momentous journey through the NICU prior to their arrival home. The complexity of the journey varies on the degree of prematurity and problems faced by each baby. The NICU environment has many stressors and facilitating education to assist parents to feel ready for discharge can be challenging for all health professionals...

AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To understand the perceptions of critical care nurses towards providing end-of-life care. BACKGROUND: There has been an increasing interest in end-of-life care in the critical care setting. In Singapore, approximately half of deaths in the hospital occur during or after critical care. While nurses are well-positioned to provide end-of-life care to patients and their family members, they faced barriers to providing end-of-life care. Also, providing end-of-life care has profound positive and negative psychological effects on nurses, with the latter being more prominent...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVE: To compare the incidence of femoral access puncture site complications in the control group, who underwent 6 hours of bed rest, with patients in the case group, who underwent 4 hours of bed rest. BACKGROUND: The ideal bed rest length after percutaneous coronary intervention with a 7-French arterial sheath has been investigated by nursing practice. However, in this larger-sheath-size group, best practices have not been determined, and bed rest time continues to vary markedly among institutions...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: While haemodialysis (HD) is an effective treatment for end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the requirements and restrictions it imposes on patients can be onerous. The aim of the current study was to obtain UK National Health Service (NHS) patients' perspectives on the challenges arising from HD with the intention of identifying potential improvements. BACKGROUND: Depression rates are particularly high in those with ESRD, however, there is limited insight into the range of stressors associated with HD treatment within the NHS contributing to such high rates, particularly those of a cognitive or psychological nature...

AIM: The aim was to explore the experiences of people with dementia in sub-acute geriatric rehabilitation hospitals to critically evaluate the care received by such patients. BACKGROUND: Globally the number of people with dementia is growing and is expected to impact progressively more on health systems. People with dementia can become deconditioned and deteriorate in cognitive function while in hospital. The unfamiliar environment and people can cause the person to become disorientated which then leads to behavioural symptoms which complicate care...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this paper is to describe the effect that immersive simulation experiences and guided reflection can have on the undergraduate nurses' understanding of how stressful environments impact their emotions, performance and ability to implement safe administration of medications. BACKGROUND: Patient safety can be jeopardised if nurses are unsure of how to appropriately manage and respond to interruptions. Medication administration errors are a major patient safety issue and often occur as a consequence of ineffective interruption management...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aims were to evaluate an educational program about nurses' role in tobacco dependence treatment, and its webcast component, on the long-term impact of increasing the frequency of nurses' self-reported changes in practice related to delivery of smoking cessation interventions. BACKGROUND: Healthcare professionals' knowledge about evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment using the 5As framework (Ask about tobacco use, Advise users to quit, Assess willingness to quit, Assist in making a quit plan, and Arrange for follow-up, including referral to a quitline) is essential to increase smoking cessation rates in the United States...

AIM: To explore parents of preterm infants' experiences of caring for their preterm infants with the grandmother as their primary support after discharge. BACKGROUND: Preterm delivery is the major cause of high neonatal mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa.
