Julie Smith, Walter Cambers
Electronic assessment is gaining popularity in clinically based elements of pre-registration nurse education. In this study, the authors explored student nurse and mentor experiences during transition from a paper to an electronic system. Mixed research methods used included survey questionnaires and focus groups. Student nurses and their mentors (both n=5) discussed and rated their confidence and skills in information technology and their experience of an electronic assessment document before and after two successive clinical placements...

BACKGROUND: understanding the impact of role ambiguity (both professional and patient) can be a factor in deepening the understanding of the ongoing personal, professional and organisational requirements of nurses who are cancer survivors. PURPOSE: the aim of this qualitative study was to elucidate an in-depth description of nurses' experiences of surviving cancer. METHOD: an exploratory qualitative research design was used (n=8), with participants recruited between September 2014 and December 2016...

Ruff Jm Cajanding
Fatigue is a common complaint among hospitalised patients and is one of the most prevalent and distressing symptoms reported by critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Fatigue comes in many forms, is associated with a wide range of aetiologies, and is aggravated and intensified by a multitude of environmental and situational factors present in the intensive care environment. While assessing and evaluating fatigue is key to the effective management of this distressing symptom, reports have shown that fatigue assessment in the ICU is suboptimal and patients are often left suffering from its untoward consequences...

#14
Emily Davis, Sally Richardson
Nursing education is continuously evolving to meet Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements for registered nurses. NMC standards state that all registered nurses are responsible for the student learning experience. However, newly qualified nurses can feel underprepared to support pre-registration student learning in the clinical area as the university setting does not facilitate formal peer support. This article will discuss the implementation of a peer facilitation scheme for pre-registration nursing students undertaking the BSc (Hons) and PGDip programmes in a higher education institution in London...

METHODS: four focus groups were conducted with 23 emergency and critical care hospital nurses in Brunei.

Teresa Day
The nutritional needs of patients receiving palliative care should be routinely assessed, taking into account disease trajectory and nutrition-related symptoms. The social and emotional aspects of eating and drinking should also be acknowledged; as should the distress that weight loss and anorexia engenders in patients and their families. Practical strategies to optimise nutritional intake are discussed. Open and sensitive communication of patients' needs and wishes is essential, especially when discussing complementary nutrition approaches...

Osarhumwese Osaretin Ojo, Omorogieva Ojo
The aim of this review was to explore students' knowledge of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) from a global perspective. HCAIs may be the result of treatment in or contact with healthcare or social care settings and have been shown to cause an increase in morbidity, mortality and increased length of hospital stay. Student placements may involve interactions between university students, patients and/or health professionals and this may be a source of cross-contamination of the microbial agents that cause HCAIs...

Helena Edis
Caring for patients with dementia emerging from general anaesthesia in the recovery room can be very challenging. Sedation is sometimes necessary in order to nurse patients effectively and avoid any negative consequences of poor post-anaesthetic care. No local or national guidelines could be found to suggest best nursing practice in this situation. Three small-scale innovations were introduced into the recovery room in one hospital as part of a quality improvement project to give alternatives to chemical restraint...
