AIM: The aim of this study was to examine how the facets of teamwork exist among nurse-only teams in acute and continuing care settings. BACKGROUND: The health care 'team' conventionally describes the interdisciplinary team in both literature and practice. Nursing-specific teams are rarely considered in the literature. An examination of this specific professional cohort is important to understand how teamwork exists among those who provide the majority of patient care...

AIM: To analyse and define the concept "evidence based practice readiness" in nurses. BACKGROUND: Evidence based practice readiness is a term commonly used in health literature, but without a clear understanding of what readiness means. Concept analysis is needed to define the meaning of evidence based practice readiness. METHOD: A concept analysis was conducted using Walker and Avant's method to clarify the defining attributes of evidence based practice readiness as well as antecedents and consequences...

AIM: The aim of this study was to determine whether elements of transformational leadership are present in nursing managers' actions following adverse events. BACKGROUND: Transformational leadership exerts a positive influence on organisational culture and patient safety. METHOD: Eleven nursing managers were interviewed individually using a semi-structured format. Data were analysed using inductive content analysis. RESULTS: Four themes emerged relating to nursing managers' actions following adverse events: patient-centredness as a principle for common action, courage to reform operational models to prevent future adverse events, nursing staff's encouragement of open and blame-free discussion, and challenge to recognize adverse events...

AIM: We propose a nurse scheduling framework based on a set of performance measures that are aligned with multiple outcome measures. A case study for the emergency department is presented. METHODS: A total of 142,564 emergency department attendances over 1 year were included in this study. Operational requirements, constraints and historical workload data were translated into a mixed-integer sequential goal programming model, which considers the following outcome measures: (1) nurse-patient ratios; (2) number of favourable/unfavourable shifts; and (3) dispersion of rest days...

AIM: To reveal correlates of the decrease of Spanish nurse migration (1999-2007). BACKGROUND: Nursing outmigration is a concern for countries. Nurse migration from Spain began in the 1990s. INTRODUCTION: From 1999 to 2007, the yearly number of migrations dropped significantly. We ask what social, economic and policy factors could be related to this drop. METHODS: We used publicly available statistics to confirm hypothesis (1) The drop in nursing migration coincided with a drop in nursing unemployment...

Jure Baloh, Xi Zhu, Marcia M Ward
AIMS: To examine how the process of change prescribed in Kotter's change model applies in implementing team huddles, and to assess the impact of the execution of early change phases on change success in later phases. BACKGROUND: Kotter's model can help to guide hospital leaders to implement change and potentially to improve success rates. However, the model is under studied, particularly in health care. METHODS: We followed eight hospitals implementing team huddles for 2 years, interviewing the change teams quarterly to inquire about implementation progress...

AIMS: This paper reports on rounding interventions employed at high performing hospitals, and provides three case studies on how proactive nurse rounding was successfully implemented to improve patient-centredness. BACKGROUND: Proactive nurse rounding is a popular form of rounding that has shown promise for improving patient outcomes, yet, little evidence exists on how to implement it successfully. METHODS: We identified high-performing hospitals in the domains of staff responsiveness and nurse communications in the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems survey nationally, and conducted case studies at three of these hospitals exploring their implementation of proactive nurse rounding...

AIM: This commentary presents a cost-benefit analysis to advocate for the use of succession planning to mitigate the problems ensuing from nurse manager turnover. BACKGROUND: An estimated 75% of nurse managers will leave the workforce by 2020. Many benefits are associated with proactively identifying and developing internal candidates. Fewer than 7% of health care organisations have implemented formal leadership succession planning programmes. EVALUATION: A cost-benefit analysis of a formal succession-planning programme from one hospital illustrates the benefits of the programme in their organisation and can be replicated easily...
