AIMS: To explore the legislative and regulatory constraints that defines nurse practitioner scope of practice within the Australian context. BACKGROUND: Nurse practitioners have been endorsed to practice in Australia for over 13 years. However, despite this lengthy period, there still remains confusion amongst newly endorsed nurse practitioners and their employers as to what determines the scope of their practice in Australia. DESIGN: A review of available policy and regulatory documents related to the Australian operational requirements for nurse practitioner scope of practice cited within or referred to by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia...

REVIEW
Mary C Carolan-OIah
INTRODUCTION: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a serious pregnancy disorder, which is linked to stillbirth, birth damage and later development of type 2 diabetes. Rates of GDM have increased dramatically in the past 20 years, related to obesity, sedentary lifestyles and ethnicity. AIM: The aim of this integrative review was to identify and to critically review existing self-management programmes for GDM. METHOD: A search for studies published between 2000 and 2013 was conducted on: PubMed, CINAHL, Medline, OvidSP, ProQuest, SCOPUS and Wiley online library...

Older adults admitted to inpatient mental health units present with complex mental health care needs which are often compounded by the challenges of living with physical co-morbidities. They are a mobile population and a high risk group for falling during hospitalisation. To address quality and safety concerns around the increased risk for falls, a qualitative research study was completed to obtain an improved understanding of the factors that increase the risk of falling in this patient cohort. Focus groups were conducted with mental health professionals working across older adult mental health services in metropolitan Western Australia...

Vicki Cope, Bronwyn Jones, Joyce Hendricks
AIM: This study explored why nurses chose to remain in the Western Australian workforce and to develop insights into the role of resilience of nurses and to identify the key characteristics of resilience displayed by these nurses. BACKGROUND: Nursing is a stressful profession. Prolific quantitative research which measures job stress and resilience has been implemented; however, there is a dearth of qualitative studies which hear the personal narratives as to why nurses remain and thrive in a stressful workplace...

AIM: To examine longitudinal changes in the profile of Australian nurse practitioners surveyed in both 2007 and 2009 ('resurveyed respondents') and to determine differences between nurse practitioners who completed the census only in 2009 ('new respondents') and resurveyed respondents. BACKGROUND: The nurse practitioner role is integral to the development and sustainability of advanced practice roles in healthcare systems. However, its success depends upon support from policy makers, health services and nursing...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization among older adults in the United States and other developed countries. Readmission rates of heart failure patients is one of the key outcome performance measures used in evaluating the quality of care of these patients. In Lebanon, there are no published data on readmission of heart failure patients. The aim of the study was to examine the readmission rates of heart failure patients within 30, 60 and 90 days of discharge from the hospital, and factors associated with readmission...

Studies drawing on observational methods can provide vital data to enhance healthcare. However, collecting observational data in clinical settings is replete with challenges, particularly where multiple data-collecting observers are used. Observers collecting data require shared understanding and training to ensure data quality, and particularly, to confirm accurate and consistent identification, discrimination and recording of data. The aim of this paper is to describe strategies for preparing and supporting multiple researchers tasked with collecting observational data in a busy, and often unpredictable, hospital environment...

BACKGROUND: Despite the expansion of capnography use, instruments for evaluating healthcare professionals' knowledge about capnography are missing from international literature. OBJECTIVES: To develop and validate an instrument for evaluating nurses' knowledge about capnography, named the "Nurses' Knowledge about Capnography Test" (NKCT). METHOD: A literature review was performed to formulate instrument items. Thirty-six items were initially developed, which covered principles of capnography function, conditions affecting end-tidal CO₂ pressure and capnography waveform, and indications for capnography use...

BACKGROUND: Effective nursing leadership is necessary for the delivery of safe, high quality healthcare. Yet experience and research tells us that nursing leaders are commonly unprepared for their roles. Take The Lead (TTL), a large-scale, multifaceted professional development program was initiated in New South Wales, Australia, to strengthen the capacity of Nursing/Midwifery Unit Managers (N/MUMs). The aim of this study was to examine the effects of TTL on job performance, nursing leadership and patient experience...

BACKGROUND: Terminally ilL people who live alone at home are disadvantaged in terms of their places of care and death and health outcomes. There is a need to trial models of care that can extend the period of care at home for as long as possible for this group. The objective was to explore the experiences of nurses providing care to terminally ill clients who live at home alone and who were receiving either additional care aide support or a personal alarm through an RCT. METHODS: Nine nurses in a home-based palliative care service in Western Australia completed a questionnaire (82% response rate)...

Following the summer holidays of 2011, twelve girls returned to school pregnant in one high school in Auckland New Zealand (NZ). A health promotion leaflet that folded into.a small square containing a condom and was dubbed the 'teabag' was distributed to 15-18 year olds prior to the summer holiday of 2012, in order to increase their sexual health knowledge. This paper reports on the evaluation of the teabag from the students' perspective. During the first term of 2013, seventeen students from two high schools who had received the teabag were interviewed...

Fecal microbiota transplantation is emerging as one of the most exciting treatments of this century. Rarely has one treatment provided the opportunity to treat a myriad of diseases, not only within the gastrointestinal tract but also in extra-intestinal organs; such is the power of the gastrointestinal microbiota to modulate the immune system and eradicate infections, even where antibiotics have previously failed. The demand for this therapy, both among patients and physicians, is increasing, and a search of the literature reveals numerous reviews, case reports and discussion on the topic...

Nursing is a dynamic and challenging profession requiring engaging and inspiring role models and leaders. In today's ever changing and demanding healthcare environment, identifying and developing nurse leaders is one of the greatest challenges faced by the nursing profession. The concept of leadership is a complex and multi-dimensional phenomenon; research conducted for over a century concludes that although it is one of the most observed concepts, no universally accepted definition or theory of leadership actually exists...

Mental Health First Aid training is designed to equip people with the skills to help others who may be developing mental health problems or experiencing mental health crises. This training has consistently been shown to increase: (1) the recognition of mental health problems; (2) the extent to which course trainees' beliefs about treatment align with those of mental health professionals; (3) their intentions to help others; and (4) their confidence in their abilities to assist others. This paper presents a discussion of the potential role of Mental Health First Aid training in undergraduate mental health nursing education...
