Andrew Papworth, Charlie Lloyd, Sarah Baker
Alcohol health workers (AHWs) have been found to be effective at reducing alcohol-related hospital admissions, but there is still a paucity of evidence in keys areas. This was the first study to investigate what percentage of patients referred to an AHW service by alcohol screening tools are actually seen by the AHWs. The study-based in a large teaching hospital in the north of England-also investigated the impact of social deprivation on service usage. Research data came from a patient database and semi-structured interviews with AHWs...

Nurses have to manage their emotions and the expression of emotion to perform best care, and their behaviours pass through emotional labour (EL). However, EL seems to be an under-appreciated aspect of caring work and there is no synthetic portrait of literature about EL in the nursing profession. This review was conducted to synthesise and to critically analyse the literature in the nursing field related to EL. Twenty-seven papers were included and analysed with a narrative approach, where two main themes were found: EL strategies and EL antecedents and consequences...

John Pendleton
Evidence suggests that black and minority ethnic (BME) midwives are more likely to face fitness to practise hearings than white registrants and BME NHS staff are less likely to be in senior positions. This literature review critically evaluates the literature published since a systematic review on the topic was conducted in 2005. It found that BME nurses and midwives, especially those who registered abroad and subsequently came to live and work in the UK are 'underemployed' and consequently expressed feelings of loss of self-confidence...

This article explores some of the issues surrounding numerical competence for potential pre-registration children's nursing students, with examples of success and failure, at the University of Hertfordshire. With poor numerical ability causing concern in the UK, and the effect of low competence on patient safety when calculating drug dosages in healthcare, this article considers some of the literature surrounding numerical ability, confidence and anxiety, along with considering whether a 'C' grade at GCSE is a suitable marker for assessing numerical competence before starting a pre-registration nursing programme...

Nursing is a physically and emotionally demanding profession. High role expectations and difficult working conditions place some nurses at risk of burnout and stress-related illness. In spite of the challenges in the current healthcare system, nurses continue to deliver high-quality patient care, retain resilience and progress professionally in the face of adversity. This article provides an overview, with discussion of the evidence in the literature, of some of the suggested methods to improve resilience and enhance staff wellbeing in the nursing profession at an individual and organisational level...

Hardip Malhi
Enteral tube feeding is the delivery of nutritionally complete feed via a tube into the gut. It is used for patients who are unable to meet their nutritional needs orally. Enteral feeding can be given through a variety of different tubes that access the gastrointestinal tract either via the stomach or the small bowel. The contamination of enteral feed can often be overlooked as a source of bacterial infection. Enteral feeds can become contaminated in a variety of different ways. Most often infections result in extended lengths of stay in hospital and patients also need additional therapies and treatments in order to resolve these infections...

#17
Keith Cutting
Most stoma flanges are made of hydrocolloid material. Hydrocolloid is a hydrophilic material that attracts water, potentially resulting in moisture becoming trapped between the flange and skin. Also, as hydrocolloids are absorbent, the material breaks down over time, and there is a risk that some of the adhesive can remain on the skin on removal. Unlike hydrocolloids, silicone comprises fully cross-linked silicone polymers whose properties have been engineered to manage moisture without breaking down (i.e. manage the transepidermal water loss (TEWL))...

A new mouldable seal, Brava® Protective Seal, was evaluated by patients on aspects related to residue, durability, and preference. A total of 135 patients from four countries participated (Denmark, Germany, Japan and the USA) and the new product was compared to the patients' usual pouching systems. Less residue and easier skin cleansing was observed, which may benefit patient quality of life. The possible benefits of less residue for peristomal skin health need further investigation.
