BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that RNs with a graduate degree contribute to better and safer care for patients. However, little is known about what further academic schooling of RNs, at PhD level, means for clinical practice. METHOD: Qualitative design, with semi-structured interviews and inductive content analysis...

Nurses around the world are aware that our world is aging. Our literature commonly anchors arguments for science, education, practice, and policy in aging populations demographics, citing the problems those demographics beget. However, grounding focal programs and specific initiatives in general claims about shifting age demographics misses two key points. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AIM: To map the research methods, frameworks, structures, processes and outcomes investigated to date when implementing nursing bedside shift reports (BSRs). BACKGROUND: BSRs have become an area of increased interest among Nurse Managers (NMs) with several projects aiming at implementing bedside reports also as a strategy to increase nursing surveillance and reduce adverse events. However, to date, no summary of the available evidence has been provided with regard to research methods, theoretical frameworks underpinning BSR implementation and outcomes aiming at supporting NM decision-making in this field...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to (a) test the hypothesized model for hospital nurses' voluntariness of incident reporting (VIR) and (b) determine the extent to which reporting culture factors, nursing safety practices and perceptions of work predict VIR. DESIGN AND METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was applied to 1380 frontline nurses recruited from six teaching hospitals in Taiwan. Data were collected using self-administered questionnaires. Correlation analyses and path analyses using structured equation modeling were used...

AIM: To identify organisational characteristics and practices that promote or inhibit the recognition of sexuality in the care of older people in health and aged care settings. BACKGROUND: Sexuality in old age is poorly understood by health professionals and rarely addressed in care planning and delivery. Nurse managers are ideally placed to lead organisations in promoting a culture of acceptance that enables the expression of sexuality. EVALUATION: A search for research/expert opinion papers published January 2004 to February 2017 was undertaken...

AIM: To describe nurse-specific and patient risk factors present at the time of a patient fall on medical-surgical units within an academic public healthcare system. BACKGROUND: The incidence of falls can be devastating for hospitalized patients and their families. Few studies have investigated how patient and nurse specific factors can decrease the occurrence of falls in hosptials. METHOD: In this retrospective cohort study, data was gathered on all patients who experienced a fall during January 2012-December 2013...

I am writing this in China and, looking from my hotel room, I can barely see beyond the buildings on the other side of the street. It's pollution; it obscures vision, and exposure has. adverse effects on health. I think 'pollution' is an excellent metaphor for what we are currently seeing in academic publishing as a result of the seemingly inexorable increase in the number of predatory publishers and the 'fruits' of their labour, the predatory journals and predatory conferences.

BACKGROUND: The nature of hospice nursing may prompt existential concerns. METHOD: Hospice nurses (N = 90) completed an online survey. RESULTS: The presence of meaning in life was associated with lower psychological distress, burnout, and negative affect, and higher levels of positive affect, whereas the search for meaning in life was only associated with higher negative affect...

AIM: To evaluate whether ≥12-hr shifts are associated with a decrease in resource use, in terms of care hours per patient day and staffing costs per patient day. BACKGROUND: Nurses working long shifts may become less productive and no research has investigated whether potential cost savings are realized. METHOD: A retrospective longitudinal study using routinely collected data from 32 wards within an English hospital across 3 years (1 April 2012-31 March 2015)...

AIM: To examine the association between relational coordination, job satisfaction, affective commitment and turnover intention. BACKGROUND: While there is a substantial body of literature that examines how relational coordination influences outcomes among nurses in western societies, there is no known study that examines the impact of relational coordination on outcomes in a non-western healthcare system. As many of the factors associated with nursing turnover in Saudi Arabia are uniquely complex and challenging, a focus on relational coordination in this context is particularly worthy of investigation...
