Halvor Nordby
A widespread view in nursing literature is that it is important for nurses to understand how patients experience states of disease and illness. To appear to patients as an empathetic practitioner involves more than identifying beliefs patients have about their conditions of ill health; it is also necessary to understand how illness experiences affect patients' well-being and quality of life. This article elucidates this condition of successful nurse-patient interaction by analyzing it in light of an influential theory of charitable interpretation from the philosophy of mind and language...

Recent research has challenged the previously held view that people with Alzheimer's disease (AD) lack a sense of self, with several studies demonstrating that the sense of self is partially preserved, even in late stages of AD. The aim of this study was to examine how people with AD express their sense of self (Self 1-3) using the social constructionist theory of selfhood described by Harré (1998). Personal interviews were analyzed deductively. The participants narrated fragments of their life stories and expressed the fear of becoming a burden to family members and of nursing home placement...

Hyunjeong Shin, Young-Joo Park
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothetical model of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) during the menopausal transition. The model was developed to test specific components of the Wilson and Cleary's model for HRQOL. A cross-sectional, correlational study was carried out using self-report questionnaires on a convenience sample of 162 Korean women in the menopausal transition. The model was tested by a path analysis using Analysis of Moment Structure (AMOS) program. The path analysis showed that 5 affecting variables explained 69% of the variance in HRQOL during the menopausal transition...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Daniela T DeFrino, Monika Marko-Holguin, Stephanie Cordel, Lauren Anker, Melishia Bansa, Benjamin Van Voorhees
Disclosing predepression feelings of sadness is difficult for teens. Primary care providers are a potential avenue for teens to disclose these feelings and a bridge to mental health care before becoming more seriously ill. To explore how to more effectively recruit teens into a primary care-based, online depression prevention study, we held 5 focus groups with African American and Latino teens (n = 43) from a large Midwestern city. We conducted constant comparative analysis of the data and a theoretical conceptualization of coping and disclosure emerged...

REVIEW
Elizabeth R Eisenhauer, Cynthia Arslanian-Engoren
Biobanking may include research procedures that violate the religious values and preferences of some patients. This integrative literature review evaluated the influence of religious values on participants' decisions to donate biospecimens to biobanks for research. The review followed the method of Whittemore and Knafl (2005). PubMed, CINAHL, and Google Scholar databases were searched for studies published between January 1, 1994 and March 31, 2014. The influence of religious values on decision making in biobanking included the following themes: (a) religious prohibitions, (b) pursuit of health, (c) decisional conflict, and (d) scope of consent...

Sally Thorne, Della Roberts, Richard Sawatzky
An increasing appreciation for the burden that chronic conditions represent for people and for societies has triggered an evolving body of popular and professional conceptualizations of the nature of the chronic disease challenge. In this discussion article, we trace the trajectory of thinking about chronic illness care, surfacing underlying assumptions and drivers that have shaped current dominant models of service delivery. We note significant gaps in these conceptualizations, especially with respect to the reality that many chronic conditions are life limiting...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Shahnaz Mohammed Ayasrah, Muayyad M Ahmad
PURPOSE: To explore the effectiveness of an educational video intervention in lowering periprocedural anxiety among Jordanian patients hospitalized for cardiac catheterization (CATH). There are many potential reasons of anxiety related to CATH including involvement of the heart and the actual test procedure. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial took place in a specialized heart institute in Jordan. The sample size was 186 patients who had undergone CATH procedure...

Translation of instruments needs to ensure equivalence between the source and the target language to establish the psychometric properties of the translated version. The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Arabic version of the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities (SDSCA) instrument. The 12-item English version of the SDSCA was translated into Arabic using back translation on a sample of 140 Lebanese participants with Type 2 diabetes. Construct validity was measured using exploratory factor analysis with varimax rotation...

Carolyn J Murrock, Abir K Bekhet
Down through the ages, music has been universally valued for its therapeutic properties based on the psychological and physiological responses in humans. However, the underlying mechanisms of the psychological and physiological responses to music have been poorly identified and defined. Without clarification, a concept can be misused, thereby diminishing its importance for application to nursing research and practice. The purpose of this article was for the clarification of the concept of music therapy based on Walker and Avant's concept analysis strategy...

REVIEW
Krystina B Lewis, Dawn Stacey, Janet E Squires, Sandra Carroll
Patient engagement in collaboration with health professionals is essential to deliver quality health care. A shared decision-making (SDM) approach requires that patients are involved in decisions regarding their health. SDM is expanding from the patient-physician dyad to incorporate an interprofessional perspective. Conceptual models can be used to better understand theoretical underpinnings for application in clinical practice. The aim of this article was to conduct a theory analysis of conceptual models using an interprofessional approach to SDM and discuss each model's relevance to nursing practice...

REVIEW
Kristen R Choi
Complex psychological trauma is a phenomenon resulting from severe interpersonal trauma that can negatively affect how individuals experience health care. However, few theories conceptualizing complex trauma exist, and it has received only limited attention in the nursing literature. The purpose of this theory synthesis was to organize two theories of (a) self-regulation and (b) self-dysregulation following complex psychological trauma into a single conceptual framework for use in nursing practice. This article used the theory synthesis approach described by Walker and Avant...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the attitudes about home care services and to develop a reliable and valid measurement tool. This methodological study was carried out on 290 students studying at a school of health. Mary Albrecht's nursing model for home health care, Jean Watson's theory of human caring, and Leslie Jean Neal's theory of home health nursing practice constituted the theoretical framework of the study. According to the results of the confirmatory factor analysis, obtained fit indices (Χ2/df = 1...

Hilary Applequist, Barbara J Daly
Palliation is a term that is used in the literature to identify very different concepts. It is often used interchangeably with palliative care, symptom management, and hospice. While these concepts are indeed related, the distinctions are valuable to identify to impact patient care. A concept analysis of palliation was undertaken via Wilson's method to define, identify core attributes and suggest areas for further research related to palliation. The analysis resulted in the following definition of palliation: patient goal directed symptom relief from a non-curative intervention, administered via human presence...

REVIEW
Pierre Pariseau-Legault, Dave Holmes
Over the last number of years, the emergence of new scientific and social constructions of intellectual disability has contributed to many terminological, conceptual, and structural changes. As a result, the expression "mental retardation" has gradually been abandoned in favor of "intellectual disability" for classification and diagnosis. In addition to helping redefine intellectual disability, the implementation of new deinstitutionalized mechanisms of governmentality required the adoption of different clinical models...
