AIM: To evaluate the long-term effectiveness of modified brief assertiveness training (with cognitive techniques) for nurses. BACKGROUND: Most assertiveness training takes a long time to conduct; thus, briefer training is required for universal on-the-job training in the workplace. METHODS: In this single-group study, nurses received two 90-min training sessions with a 1-month interval between sessions. The degree of assertiveness was assessed by using the Rathus Assertiveness Schedule as the primary outcome, at four time points: pre- and post-training, 3-month follow-up and 6-month follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The empowerment experience increases the levels of nursing professionals' satisfaction and performance preventing the emergence of burnout. However, the relationship between structural empowerment and burnout has been scarcely studied in Portugal...

AIMS: To explore nurses' views on future priorities for the profession and to examine social media as an engagement tool to aid policy discussion and development.

AIM: To investigate relationships between first-line managers' ratings of structural and psychological empowerment, and the subordinates' ratings of structural empowerment, as well as their ratings of the managers' leadership-management performance. BACKGROUND: Work situations in elderly care are complex. To date, few studies have used a longitudinal, correlational and multilevel design to study the working life of subordinates and managers.

BACKGROUND: Developments in the community health nursing sector have resulted in many changes in the activities of these nurses. The concepts of patient-centred care and co-creation of care are gaining importance in the work of community health nurses. Whether patient-centred care also contributes positively to nurses' well-being and job satisfaction is not known. METHOD: In 2015, a cross-sectional survey was conducted among 153 community health nurses employed by 11 health care organisations in the southern part of the Netherlands...

AIM: To describe fluctuations in patient numbers, patient acuity and the need for nurses in neonatal intensive care units based on population data.

AIM: The aim was to evaluate the impact of staff training and wearing safety vests as a combined intervention on interruptions during medication preparation and double-checking. BACKGROUND: Interruptions and errors during the medication process are common and an important issue for patient safety in the hospital setting. METHODS: We performed a pre- and post-intervention pilot-study using direct structured observation of 26 nurses preparing and double-checking 431 medication doses (225 pre-intervention and 206 post-intervention) for 36 patients (21 pre-intervention and 15 post-intervention)...

AIMS: To test the associations of safety practices as reported by nurses and their respective unit supervisors with job satisfaction. BACKGROUND: Psychosocial workplace factors are associated with job satisfaction; however, it is unknown whether nurses and supervisors accounts of safety practices are differentially linked to this outcome.

Nigar Erdenk, Serap Altuntaş
AIM: This research was conducted in a descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional design to determine whether personality traits of nurses have an effect on conflict management strategies. BACKGROUND: It is known that integration, avoidance and compromise conflict management strategies are the most frequent strategies used among nurses and obligation and domination are the least frequent.
