Hrønn Thorn, Lisbeth Uhrenfeldt
BACKGROUND: Non-specialist nurses, who are providing palliative end-of-life cancer care to patients and significant others undergoing psychosocial and existential transitions, may experience dissatisfaction, frustration and sorrow. On the other hand, they may also experience happiness, increased knowledge and personal growth. OBJECTIVE/QUESTION: What are non-specialist nurses' experiences when providing palliative end-of-life cancer care that involves the psychosocial and existential transitions of their patients and significant others? INCLUSION CRITERIA TYPES OF PARTICIPANTS: The current review considered studies that included a description of the experiences of non-specialist trained registered nurses (RNs) working in non-specialist wards...

Mapping individual patterns of decline in older adults may aid coordinating long term aged care. This study developed a new scale (Transition Maps) to summarise the overall care pathway for long term aged care residents, in a simplified manner incorporating mapping concepts. Transition Maps were developed using mixed methods in two phases, and based on expert opinion, literature review, and input from aged care health professionals. Four professions (primary physician, nurse, allied health, lifestyle services) generated 147 Transition Maps for 38 residents living in a long term care...

INTRODUCTION: Informal caregivers play a pivotal role in supporting patients approaching the end of life. The Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT) is designed to facilitate person-centred assessment and support through a process that is practitioner-facilitated, but carer-led. This study explored practitioners' experiences of implementing the CSNAT in palliative homecare. METHODS: We conducted qualitative interviews/focus groups with 20 practitioners in one UK hospice homecare service (18 nurses, two healthcare assistants) before and after the implementation of the CSNAT...

AIM: To describe the experiences of registered nurses who transition from acute to primary health care (PHC) employment. BACKGROUND: Internationally the provision of health care in PHC settings is increasing. Nurses are moving from acute care employment to meet the growing demand for a PHC workforce. However, little is known about the transition experiences of these nurses. DESIGN: A sequential mixed methods study comprising a survey, and semi-structured interviews...

Sri Lanka is one of the fastest-ageing countries in the world. This rapid demographic transition is expected to result in one quarter of the population being elderly by the year 2041. Profound challenges face the country as a result, especially with respect to planning adequate elderly-oriented services in the social-care and health-care sectors. In response to this need, many initiatives have been put in place to promote and protect the welfare of older people, and these rights have been inscribed in law. Within the health sector, despite the wealth of policies and initiatives in recent years, it is clear that the existing health infrastructure and systems still require strengthening, reorientation and coordination, to meet the needs of the growing population of elderly individuals...

OBJECTIVES: It is known that transition, as a shift of care, marks a vulnerable phase in the adolescents' lives with an increased risk for non-adherence and allograft failure. Still, the transition process of adolescents and young adults living with a kidney transplant in Germany is not well defined. The present research aims to assess transition-relevant structures for this group of young people. Special attention is paid to the timing of the process. SETTING: In an observational study, we visited 21 departments of paediatric nephrology in Germany...

Government policies advocate that children should be cared for at home ( Noyes et al 2006 ), although medically stable LTV children often stay in hospital months longer than is necessary ( NHS England 2015 ). Research shows that parents of these children develop a dual role as parents and nurses, which leads to role conflict and ambiguity ( Hewitt-Taylor 2011 ).

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among adults worldwide, including China. After a hospital stay, transitional care could help to ensure improved patient care and outcomes, and reduce Medicare costs. Nevertheless, the results of the existing transitional care are not always satisfactory and our knowledge of how to perform effective transitional care for patients with coronary artery disease is limited in mainland China. OBJECTIVES: To examine the effectiveness of a nurse-led transitional care program on clinical outcomes, health-related knowledge, and physical and mental health status among Chinese patients with coronary artery disease...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to describe nurses' experiences of patients' transition from ICUs to general wards and their suggestions for improvements. BACKGROUND: In the ICU, the most seriously ill patients with life-threatening conditions and multiple organ dysfunction syndromes are cared for and carefully monitored by specially trained professionals using advanced techniques for the prevention of failure of vital functions. The transfer of ICU patients to general wards means a change from a high to a lower level, including the loss of one-to-one nursing and a reduction of visible monitoring equipment and general close attention...

BACKGROUND: Clinical Placements are an essential component of bridging the gap between academic theory and nursing practice. There are multiple clinical models designed to ease the transition from student to professional, yet there has been little exploration of such models and their impact on graduates' perceptions of work-readiness. OBJECTIVES: This cross sectional study examined perceptions of work-readiness of new graduate nurses who attended one of the following clinical teaching models: the University Fellowship Program (UFP), the Traditional Multi-facility Clinical Model (TMCPM), and the Mixed Program (MP)...

INTRODUCTION: Safety culture is defined as the product of individual and group values, attitudes, perceptions, competencies, and patterns of behavior that determine an organization's health and safety management. There is a lack of studies assessing patient safety culture in the perioperative setting. OBJECTIVES: We examined safety culture at a single tertiary care hospital, across all types of surgery, using previously collected data from a validated survey tool...

For chief nursing officers, volatility has become an expected characteristic of the professional landscape. Recent studies indicate that this volatility is likely to continue for at least the next decade. For chief nursing officers caught in an organizational crisis, the thought of leaving the leadership ranks triggers professional angst and a range of personal emotion. This article examines the most common reasons chief nursing officers leave their positions and how they can take steps to rebound. It also explores the tools and resources that can positively affect these monumental transitions, whether voluntary or involuntary...

Drawn from 54 years of experience as a nursing professional, this author gives a personal account of 2 types of career transitions: (1) normative transitions/stages, which include position changes, educational pursuits, and promotion; and (2) cataclysmic transitions, such as dismissal, bankruptcy, and mergers, that arise out of disruptive work situations that dramatically influence one's beliefs, actions, and perspective over time and ultimately shape a career. The importance of influencers throughout a career and lessons learned along the way are also explored...

Body image dissatisfaction and disordered eating are often overlooked as personal factors that may affect pregnancy, postpartum, and infant feeding method. The current study compared body image, eating attitudes, and breastfeeding intention of first-time breastfeeding mothers to first-time non-breastfeeding mothers. A two-group, comparative design was used to analyze data for first-time mothers recruited through a large pediatric practice with multiple offices. Although there was no significant difference in body image scores between the groups, the literature suggests that body image dissatisfaction can affect the transition to motherhood and lead to more serious mental health issues...

The dedicated education unit (DEU) model of clinical nursing education is an innovative, evidence-based model for creating a more effective learning environment. Although nursing programs have used this model for years, the literature provides minimal direction to assist faculty in transitioning from traditional clinical teaching to the DEU model. This article reports the development and evaluation of 2 resources to help all involved understand teaching roles and desired learning outcomes in the DEU model.
