Mi-Kyoung Cho, Se Young Kim, Hye Yeung Shim
BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis patients experience physical and psychosocial symptoms caused by comorbid illnesses, treatment-related side effects, lifestyle alteration, and the psychosocial impacts of living with end-stage renal disease. The Dialysis Symptom Index (DSI) is the most frequently used instrument to assess symptoms of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease in patients. PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to develop the Korean version of the DSI, to verify the reliability and validity of the developed tool, and to use the tool to evaluate the symptoms of hemodialysis patients in Korea...

JinShil Kim, Eunok Park, Minjeong An
BACKGROUND: People with chronic diseases may experience poor cognitive functioning associated with advanced age, progression of disease, or other comorbid chronic conditions. Empirical evidence of this phenomenon is limited despite the clinical relevance of cognitive decline and associated adverse outcomes such as poor physical functioning. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine cognitive functioning in the domains of memory, attention, and executive function and its association with functional capacity in a sample of community-dwelling adults with a spectrum of chronic diseases...

Ching-Ching Tsai, Ai-Hsien Li, Chung-Ming Tu, Kai-Lin Hwang, Chii Jeng
BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of death in women. Many of the risk factors for CAD relate to lifestyle and thus may be influenced by lifestyle modification. However, middle-aged women often find it difficult to adjust their lifestyle behaviors. Thus, providing individualized treatment is crucial to reducing the risk and incidence of CAD in this population. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to explore the effectiveness of a tailored lifestyle management program (TLMP) for middle-aged women with CAD...

Jin-Bo Fang, Chun-Fen Zhou, Jing Huang, Chang-Jian Qiu
BACKGROUND: The Occupational Fatigue Exhaustion/Recovery Scale (OFER) was designed to assess occupational fatigue in nurses. Although the original English version of this instrument has shown high degrees of reliability and validity, a Chinese version of this scale has yet to be verified. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the OFER in a population of Chinese nurses. METHODS: The scale was translated using translation and back-translation...

En-Chi Chiu, Shu-Chun Lee
BACKGROUND: The Quality of Life for Mental Disorders (QOLMD) scale was designed to measure health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with mental illness, especially schizophrenia. The QOLMD contains 45 items, which are divided into eight domains. However, the factor structure of the QOLMD has not been evaluated, which restricts the interpretations of the results of this scale. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the factor structures (i.e...

Shih-Pi Lin, Chieh-Yu Liu, Chiu-Yueh Yang
BACKGROUND: Over the last few decades, an increasing number of studies have examined quality of life in patients with chronic schizophrenia. However, little research has addressed the relationship between lifestyles that promote health and quality of life issues in these patients. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between lifestyles that promote health and quality of life in patients with chronic schizophrenia. METHODS: A cross-sectional study design was used...

BACKGROUND: Critical thinking and self-confidence are imperative to success in clinical practice. Educators should use teaching strategies that will help students enhance their critical thinking and self-confidence in complex content such as electrocardiogram interpretation. Therefore, teaching electrocardiogram interpretation to students is important for nurse educators. PURPOSE: This study compares the effect of simulation-based and traditional teaching methods on the critical thinking and self-confidence of students during electrocardiogram interpretation sessions...

Fu-Mian Tsai, Chiu-Chu Lin, Huey-Shyan Lin, Yi Liu
BACKGROUND: Prediabetes mellitus (pre-DM) is an important predictive indicator of Type 2 diabetes. A person with pre-DM is eight times more likely to develop diabetes than a person without pre-DM. Prior research suggests that proactive interventions may delay the progression of this disease and reduce the rate of disease development. PURPOSE: The purposes of this preliminary study were to develop a multitheory-driven lifestyle intervention protocol for adults with pre-DM and to evaluate its feasibility and impacts on knowledge regarding pre-DM, dietary behaviors, and physical activity (primary outcomes) as well as to describe the disease progression indicators (secondary outcomes)...

Chin-Ching Li, Sheng-Miauh Huang, Jerry Cheng-Yen Lai, Yvonne Hsiung, Yi-Heng Chen, Ching-Fang Lee
BACKGROUND: Evidence indicates that breast cancer survivors with reproductive concerns have a poorer quality of life than survivors without fertility concerns. There is a lack of reliable and valid assessments of fertility intention among breast cancer survivors. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to develop and validate the Fertility Intention Scale (FIS) that is sensitive to the fertility intention of women with breast cancer. METHODS: A literature review and a qualitative study were conducted to generate the items in the scale...

#16
Wei-Fang Wang, Chich-Hsiu Hung, Chung-Yi Li
BACKGROUND: The commitment of nursing preceptors to their role is an important driving force that supports their clinical teaching and affects teaching quality. Role commitment undergoes dynamic development and thus changes over time. Existing studies have utilized only cross-sectional study designs and have not analyzed the changes in commitment trajectories with related factors. PURPOSE: This study aimed to investigate the development trajectories of the commitment of preceptors and to examine the predictors between the trajectories of role commitment among nursing preceptors...

#18
Li-Yin Chang, Hsiu-Hui Yu, Yann-Fen C Chao
BACKGROUND: Nursing workload is highly associated with patient safety. It has been argued that the imbalance between nursing payment and nursing workload in Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI)-covered intensive care units (ICUs) has resulted in the inadequate allocation of nursing manpower. However, limited empirical data are currently available to support this argument. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between nursing workload, quality of care, and NHI-covered nursing payments in ICU settings...
