Wanda Montalvo, Mary W Byrne
Objective. The aim of this study was to describe and analyze the correlations between mentoring functions and political skill development among nurses who have earned or are candidates for a Ph.D. or doctorate of nursing practice (DNP) degree. Background. The healthcare system is in flux; future generations of Ph.D. and DNP nurse leaders will be required to demonstrate political acumen. Political skill to navigate organizational politics has had limited research within nursing. Methods. A cross-sectional research design using a web-based survey of 222 nurses who have earned or are candidates for a Ph...

There is growing evidence of a culture of expectation among nursing students in Universities which leads to narcissistic behaviour. Evidence is growing that some student nurses are disrespectful and rude towards their university lecturers. There has been little investigation into whether they exhibit similar behaviour towards their mentors during practical placements, particularly when they, the students, are not meeting the required standards for practice. This paper focuses on adding to the evidence around a unique finding - that student nurses can use coercive and manipulative behaviour to elicit a successful outcome to their practice learning assessment (as noted in Hunt et al...

A supportive clinical learning environment is important for nursing students' learning. In this study, a contract between a county and a university involving a preceptor model of clinical education for nursing students is described. The aim of this study was to describe nursing students' clinical education based on quality indicators and to describe the students' experiences of what facilitated or hindered the learning process during their clinical practice. During autumn 2012 and spring 2013, 269 student evaluations with quantitative and qualitative answers were filled out anonymously...

It can be argued that one of the many roles of learner nurses is that of catalysts - individuals, who question the system, who ask how and why. Students are perhaps obligated to ask such questions; it's part of their unwritten contract. Tutorial staff actually encourage such a questioning attitude, believing it to be beneficial both to the student and ward staff.

PROBLEM: With an evolving focus on primary, community-based, and patient-centered care rather than acute, hospital-centric, disease-focused care, and recognition of the importance of coordinating care and managing transitions across providers and settings of care, registered nurses need to be prepared from a different and broader knowledge base and skills set. A culture change among nurse educators and administrators and in nursing education is needed to prepare competent registered nurses capable of practicing from a health promotion, disease prevention, community- and population-focused construct in caring for a population of patients who are presenting health problems and conditions that persist across decades and/or lifetimes...

Hospitals are workplaces in which HIV has double significance. Needlestick accidents link patients, healthcare workers and cleaning staff through the risk of occupational exposure to HIV. Additionally, concern over needlestick injuries may embody HIV stigma, discrimination and fear. This paper draws on qualitative research from a one-year case study at a large, private South African healthcare company that runs a number of hospitals across the country. Issues surrounding needlestick injuries were discussed with hospital managers, union members, infection-control nurses, health and safety representatives, HIV/AIDS counsellors, and general nursing staff...

Employers are often put in a difficult position trying to accommodate state laws that allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes while enforcing federal rules or company drug-use policies based on federal law. To ensure workplace safety as well as compliance with state and federal legislation, employers should review state laws on discrimination against marijuana users and ensure that policies enacted are consistent with the state’s antidiscrimination statutes. Although it appears that in most states that allow medical marijuana use, employers can continue enforcing policies banning or restricting the use of marijuana, this approach may change on the basis of future court decisions...

We organized a home medical care training workshop to offer community pharmacists an opportunity to learn more about home medical care. The workshop consisted of lectures by the doctor, the nurse, and the pharmacist. A questionnaire was handed out to all the participants once the workshop had ended. On an average, the participants rated the overall quality of the workshop as 8.1 out of 10. Our results revealed that 62.7% of the participating pharmacists were experienced in home medical care, with the majority having between 1 and 5 years of experience...

BACKGROUND: Young Chilean women between 18 and 24 years of age are at high risk of contracting sexually transmitted infection (STI) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The literature shows a shortage of STI-HIV prevention interventions focused on this specific high-risk population and a unique set of barriers to receiving prevention messages. Internet-based interventions are promising for delivering STI-HIV prevention interventions and avoiding barriers to services. AIMS: The study aimed to develop a culturally informed Internet-based STI-HIV prevention intervention for Chilean women between 18 and 24 years of age, to investigate its feasibility and acceptability, and to compile recommendations on what would make the intervention more acceptable and feasible for these women...

BACKGROUND: Within Australia and internationally (Health Workforce Australia, 2012) an increasing and on-going nursing workforce shortage is documented. Recent international estimates indicate that there will be ongoing and significant gaps in the supply of a nursing workforce; the United Kingdom is predicted to have a reduction of 12.12% nurses over the coming eight years if a current 'steady state' is maintained (Buchan and Seacombe, 2011); Canada is predicted to have a shortage of 60,000 nurses by 2022 (Tomblin et al...

Over the last 10 years, Belize has implemented a National Health Insurance (NHI) program that uses performance-based contracts with both public and private facilities to improve financial sustainability, efficiency and service provision. Data were collected at the facility, district and national levels in order to assess trends in financial sustainability, efficiency payments, year-end bonuses and health system and health outcomes. A difference-in-difference approach was used to assess the difference in technical efficiency between private and public facilities...

Before 2011 the UK saw a decline in the number of nurses coming forward to undertake a postgraduate programme in specialist community practice. In addition to financial constraints and an aging nursing demographic, existing health visiting teams have struggled to meet the complex health and social needs of parents with pre-school children. The Health Visitor Implementation Plan published by the Department of Health in England in 2011 aimed to expand and strengthen health visiting services nationwide. This plan is in conjunction with developing new ways of working incorporating the Healthy Child Programme...

MULTICENTER STUDY

The reengineering of nurse training implies the implementation of self-development, empowering tools and a reshaping of the function of accompaniment during training which becomes a shared function. This work is part of a psycho-socio-educational approach of the accompaniment to self-directed learning and also in the field of practices of health and social work. This study contributes to the identification of the conditions of efficiency of contracting between student nurses, tutors and instructors. It aims to explore the interest of a triangular steering of the learning contract centered on the student's individual project and also the interest of meetings during training as triggers to a process of self-construction of competences...

OBJECTIVES: It is unknown how many women presenting for primary care can appropriately contract their pelvic floor muscle (PFM) or whether this ability differs between women with or without pelvic floor disorders. We sought to describe the proportion of women who initially incorrectly contract the PFM and how many can learn after basic instruction. METHODS: This cross-sectional study enrolled 779 women presenting to community-based primary care practices. During PFM assessment, research nurses recorded whether women could correctly contract their PFM after a brief verbal cue...

At present there is lack of information about CMV transmission given to midwives, general practitioners, neonatal pediatricians and nurses, with intrauterine transmission having profound consequences in terms of outcomes for the infected neonate. To identify one particular group of midwives knowledge about CMV, the research question surveyed midwives' knowledge of CMV. A quantitative electronic survey was the research method utilized in this study. To assess midwives knowledge about CMV, the first author emailed colleagues in Hannover and was in receipt of 40 completed questionnaires...

Chia-An Chao, Joanne Goldbort
Implementation of an electronic medical record (EMR) system is a complex process with broad implications. In a Midwestern hospital perinatal setting, EMR implementation involved several critical steps: strategic planning and project goal setting; project structure and governance; system requirements analysis; vendor selection and contract negotiation; and EMR training. No difference in patient care activities and communications among clinicians was found between pre- and post-EMR implementation; however, nurses' perceptions of EMR were more negative afterward...
