Anneyce Knight
This article presents a snapshot of my experience of being a nurse who became a service user with breast cancer. It begins by outlining the Humanization of Healthcare Framework ( Todres et al, 2009 ), which is a values-based context that can be used to underpin daily care. Generic applications for each of the dimensions of the framework are suggested. This framework is then used to contextualise my experience of receiving my diagnosis and the ensuing chemotherapy. Using examples from my personal narrative, I make some recommendations for 'small actions' that can contribute to more humanised and person-centred care...

Chris Williams, Andrew Parry
Assisting with tracheal intubation is an aspect of clinical practice that requires knowledge and skill if the procedure is to be carried out in a timely and safe manner. Maintaining this knowledge and skill requires good quality education and regular opportunities to practise. These two factors appear to be inconsistent in critical care units. This article details an audit performed on a large tertiary referral centre critical care unit. It was undertaken in two phases: the first was a self-assessment of knowledge and the second was a practical assessment of the audit subjects in a simulated setting...

Susan Cooper, Kate de Lord
This article reflects on the changing nature of the provision of care and delivery of ambulatory systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT) services. It reviews the national guidance and looks at ambulatory SACT in terms of patients being treated closer to home, i.e. ambulatory care in its truest sense. It considers the impact on quality of life for patients receiving treatments at a place of their choice. It explores the role of the nurse as an advanced practitioner while also examining the safety and delivery of complex regimens ensuring robust pathways are in place to deliver care in a safe and standardised way...

BACKGROUND: nurses play a crucial role in the early recognition and management of the deteriorating patient. They are responsible for the care they provide to their patients, part of which is the monitoring of vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate and temperature), which are fundamental in the surveillance of deterioration. The aim of this study was to discover what factors influence how nurses assess patient acuity and their response to acute deterioration. METHODS: a generic qualitative approach was used...

AIM: to explore the nature of leadership styles used by the nursing management team, as perceived by nurses working at the bedside. BACKGROUND: leadership style is related to job satisfaction, staff retention, costs, and quality of care. The leadership styles of managers can be crucial in the healthcare setting, but very few studies have focused on them. METHOD: the study employed qualitative methodology, involving 35 nurses working in different specialties of a medical city in Saudi Arabia...

BACKGROUND: despite a 450% increase in UK alcohol-related liver disease mortality over the past 30 years, little evidence-based guidance exists regarding preventing recidivism post-liver transplant for alcohol-related liver disease. METHOD: a systematic literature review was conducted to identify demographic variables predictive of alcohol relapse and effective psychosocial interventions for alcohol-related liver disease patients post-liver transplant. RESULTS: variables most significantly predictive of alcohol relapse post-transplant were-less than 12 months pre-liver transplant abstinence; patients with children; poor pre-liver transplant psychosomatic evaluation; non-compliance with post-liver transplant treatment plan; and patients with active insurance policies...

Nurses are in a unique position to provide nutritional advice and information to women with breast cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy, supporting them with making decisions regarding nutrition and diet. This narrative review evaluated the research evidence relating to the nutritional challenges experienced during chemotherapy and the most effective approaches for supporting women in dietary choice. Weight gain was identified as a specific problem for women undergoing chemotherapy. The evidence indicated that information about nutrition and food preparation support may go some way in assisting women to overcome some of the nutrition-related difficulties experienced during chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer...
