Professional health care societies play a critical role in promoting excellence in patient care, educating and certifying their members on evidence-based practices, and pursuing relevant research agendas to advance the science in the field. Disaster nursing is a subspecialty of professional nursing characterized by a unique knowledge base and set of skills and abilities not used in normal daily health care activities. A disaster or large-scale public health emergency creates a sudden, unanticipated surge of patients with health care needs that far exceeds the capacity of the health care system...

Nurses and other health care professionals are in a unique position to shift the paradigm around migration debates. As caregivers and advocates for patients and other providers, nurses are crucial to the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. This is especially true for migrants, including increasingly vulnerable refugee populations around the world. As negotiations surrounding the Global Compact for Migration and Global Compact on Refugees come to a close, nurses' roles are becoming more apparent...

Health care personnel are considered one of the worker sectors most exposed to heavier workloads and work stress. One of the consequences associated with the exposure to chronic stress is the development of burnout syndrome. Given that evaluating this syndrome requires addressing the context in which they are to be used, the purpose of this work was to analyze the psychometric properties and structure of the Burnout Brief Questionnaire (CBB), and to propose a more suitable version for its application to health professionals, and more specifically nurses...

Registered Nurses (RNs) are regulated health professionals who are educated and accountable for safe medication administration (MA). Binding their practice are standards, policies, procedure and legislation. MA competence is taught and assessed during professional pre-registration education programs. However, different philosophies, theories and models are used by education providers making curriculum content disparate and competency frameworks diverse. Additionally, healthcare contexts are increasingly complex and clinical environments unpredictable...

BACKGROUND: Despite a growing population of people with disabilities (PWD), health care professionals, including nurses, receive little educational preparation to provide health care to them. To address this issue in nursing education, the faculty of a school of nursing designed and implemented an innovative teaching strategy that can be adopted by other nursing programs and faculty. METHOD: A systematic plan was developed and implemented to integrate standardized patients with disabilities (SPWD) into an existing undergraduate nursing program...

BACKGROUND: Although the overall rate of caesarean deliveries in India remains low, rates are higher in private than in public facilities. In a household survey in Delhi, for instance, more than half of women delivering in private facilities reported a caesarean section. Evidence suggests that not all caesarean sections are clinically necessary and may even increase morbidity. We present providers' perspectives of the reasons behind the high rates of caesarean births in private facilities, and possible solutions to counter the trend...

Although adherence to healthy dietary guidelines has been associated with a reduced risk of several health outcomes including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers, little is known about the role of dietary patterns in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. We prospectively assessed the associations of 3 key commonly used a priori dietary patterns, the Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010 (AHEI-2010), Alternate Mediterranean Diet (AMED), and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) with risk of incident hepatocellular carcinoma in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study and the Nurses' Health Study, two large prospective cohort studies...

BACKGROUND: Improving hand hygiene compliance among health care professionals is the most effective way to reduce health care-acquired infections. Electronic systems developed to increase hand hygiene performance show promise but might not maintain staff participation over time. In this study, we investigated an intermittent deployment strategy to overcome potentially declining participation levels. METHODS: An electronic monitoring system was deployed 3 times at 6-month intervals on a musculoskeletal rehabilitation nursing unit in Toronto...

Childhood and adolescent obesity are epidemic in the United States. Because of this crisis, schools in our nation have been challenged to develop strategies to decrease the number of overweight and obese youth, with many states passing legislation requiring body mass index (BMI) monitoring by the school. This may be done as a screening or surveillance program depending on the state, with some states requiring notification to parents. As school nurses are often the only health professional in the school, they are typically the employee tasked with leading the BMI screening programs...

Preceptors provide fundamental support for the graduate registered nurse, acting as both teacher and role model with an aim to transition the graduate to becoming an independent practitioner. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expectations of the preceptor role from the preceptor's perspective. An interpretative phenomenological approach was used to explore the experience of being a preceptor with seven nurses working in acute clinical areas. Three themes emerged from the thematic analysis; balancing the preceptor role, exploring past experiences reveals current expectations and developing relationships...

Healthcare providers use distinct medical terminology to communicate in professional healthcare settings in Taiwan. Moreover, nursing students understand the importance of acquiring a good command of this medical terminology to the development of their professional careers. Thus, using proper teaching strategies to boost student participation and interest in their studies is an important responsibility and task. Social Learning Theory has been widely used in education. According to this theory, learners learn about new models of behavior and modify old models through observation and imitation...

The ultimate purpose of education is to provide students with the skills and motivation necessary for lifelong learning. Students with lifelong learning abilities are better able to continue improving their professional core competencies, especially in terms of problem solving and clinical reasoning. Prior to enhancing lifelong learning abilities, students must learn self-directed learning. Studies have shown that flipped classroom learning has the potential to improve self-directed learning. Flipped classroom teaching requires prerecorded lectures, strengthened teacher-student interaction, and assisting students to learn in-depth...
