Tsuey-Yuan Huang, Debra K Moser, Shiow-Li Hwang
BACKGROUND: Patients with heart failure (HF) have multiple distressing symptoms that are associated with poor outcomes. These symptoms do not occur in isolation from each other but likely occur as discrete clusters that may prove helpful to clinicians trying to counsel patients about symptom monitoring and management. Defining common symptom clusters and determining the associations between symptom clusters and outcomes may improve patient management. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to define symptom clusters and their association with event-free survival in terms of cardiac hospitalization and all-cause mortality in patients with HF...

BACKGROUND: The promotion of healthy behaviors is a relevant issue worldwide, especially among adolescent populations, as this is the developmental stage where most unhealthy behaviors become ingrained. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Adolescent Health Promotion Scale (AHPS) in a Chilean sample of early adolescents. METHODS: The sample was composed of 1,156 adolescents aged 10-14 years from schools in San Felipe, Chile...

BACKGROUND: Nursing burnout is affected by various factors, including work overload. Since the inauguration of the Health Sector Evolution Plan (HSEP) in Iran in 2014, government hospitals have been required to provide health services to the public at all levels. This decision, however, has increased the volume of patients admitted to government hospitals. Because nurses are on the front line of health services, they are faced with a greater load of care provision. PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate nursing burnout before and after HSEP in Iran, with an emphasis on the differences between government and private hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Both psychiatric symptoms and the side effects of medication significantly affect patients with schizophrenia. These effects frequently result in a sedentary lifestyle and weight gain, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death. PURPOSE: This study developed an aerobic dance program for patients with schizophrenia and then evaluated the effect of this program on health-related fitness outcomes. METHODS: An experimental research design was used...

Pen-Chen Kung, Mei Chang Yeh, Ming-Kuen Lai, Hsueh-Erh Liu
BACKGROUND: Kidney transplant failures are caused primarily by lack of adherence to immunosuppressive medication regimens by patients after transplantation. A number of studies have indicated that health-related beliefs are an effective predictor of health-related behavior. PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to understand the influence of the personal characteristics and health-related beliefs of patients on adherence to treatment with immunosuppressive medication based on the Health Belief Model...

Chao-Chia Hung, Hsin-Yi Chang, Yi-Chen Chiang, Wen-Chi Wu, Lee-Lan Yen
BACKGROUND: Drinking is largely viewed as a socialized behavior; however, our understanding of factors associated with levels of risky drinking is limited in cultures where underage drinking is relatively unacceptable. PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to define the different levels associated with risky drinking and to examine the factors that are associated with these levels. METHODS: We used data from the Child and Adolescent Behavior in Long-Term Evolution project...

Jamila Abuidhail, Mohammad Al-Motlaq, Lina Mrayan, Taghreed Salameh
BACKGROUND: Many international studies in the field of neonatal nursing have identified parental stress, coping difficulties, support issues, and various other experiences that are related to the birth of a preterm infant. However, no studies have assessed the interrelated issues of parental stress, social support, satisfaction, and nursing support in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in Jordan. PURPOSE: This study describes the lived experiences, needs in relation to care, and support systems of parents whose neonates were admitted to the NICU...

Jahangir Maghsoudi, HamidReza Oreyzi, Ali Zargham-Boroujeni
BACKGROUND: Professional nurses typically pay significantly more attention to the weaknesses rather than strengths of their psychiatric patients. Thus, new approaches to care are needed to discover the strengths of these patients and to provide effective encouragement during the caring process. However, little is currently known regarding the strengths that psychiatric patients possess during their illness and healing. PURPOSE: The current study aimed to explore the self-perceptions and experiences of psychiatric patients regarding their strengths...

Huei-Lih Hwang, Chin-Tang Tu, Hsiu-Hung Wang
BACKGROUND: A scale that measures the efficacy of care from the perspectives of institutionalized older adults is needed to meet the growing need for better caring knowledge and skills among nurses and caretakers working in long-term care facilities. The currently available tools are insufficient for measuring the caring-related interactions of caretakers with institutionalized older adults. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to develop and explore the psychometric structure of a caring scale for institutionalized older adults...

Haejung Lee, Sunjoo Boo, Jihyoung Yu, Soon-Rim Suh, Kook Jin Chun, Jong Hyun Kim
BACKGROUND: Both the beneficial relationship between exercise and quality of life and the important role played by exercise self-efficacy in maintaining an exercise regimen among individuals with chronic heart failure are well known. However, most nursing interventions for Korean patients with chronic heart failure focus only on providing education related to risk factors and symptoms. Little information is available regarding the influence of physical functions, physical activity, and exercise self-efficacy on quality of life...

BACKGROUND: The results of numerous studies indicate that people with disabilities seek more healthcare than those who are not disabled, particularly for conditions such as chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. However, little is known about the incidence of impaired kidney function and its associated factors among adults with disabilities in Taiwan. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence and factors associated with impaired kidney function among adults with disabilities...

#14
Gözde Gökçe İsbir, Pinar Serçekuş
BACKGROUND: Supportive care during labor, the primary role of intrapartum nurses and midwives, provides comfort to prepartum women and helps facilitate a positive labor experience. It has been argued that supportive care during labor reduces fear and anxiety as well as the resultant side effects. However, evidence supporting this argument is insufficient. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the effects of intrapartum supportive care on fear of delivery and on the key parameters of the labor process...

Mei-Fang Chen, Shu-Ling Hung, Shu-Lin Chen
BACKGROUND: Practicing a health-promoting lifestyle is believed to be effective for delaying or preventing the onset of diabetes. However, although empowerment interventions have proven effective for encouraging the adoption of a health-promoting lifestyle in people with diabetes, these interventions are rarely promoted to people with prediabetes. PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to develop an empowerment program for people with prediabetes and to examine its efficacy in terms of the adoption of a health-promoting lifestyle and improvements in blood sugar, body mass index, and self-efficacy...

Nearly every aspect of these two issues has been studied. PURPOSE: This research was conducted to identify the relationship between the organizational silence, organizational cynicism, and intention to leave work of nurses. METHODS: This descriptive and correlational study was carried out in August and September 2013 with 323 nurses at a university hospital in Ankara...
