Knowing professionals' attitudes is the basis for the development of skills for dealing with drug dependence. These attitudes may affect patients' clinical safety and the cost-benefit ratio of the interventions. The goal of this study was to assess emergency and mental health nurses' attitudes and perceptions towards alcoholics. A multicenter prospective descriptive study was conducted in six hospitals with 167 emergency and mental health nurses. Nurses classified alcoholics as sick individuals, although there was a tendency to feel uncomfortable working with them...

The quality of care is a crucial determinant of good health outcomes, but is difficult to measure. Survey vignettes are a standard approach to measuring medical knowledge among health care providers. Given that written vignettes or knowledge tests may be too removed from clinical practice, particularly where "learning by doing" may be an important form of training, we developed a new type of provider vignette. It uses videos presenting a patient visiting the clinic with maternal/early childhood symptoms...

Developing a professional identity is an essential transition for nursing students as they move through their undergraduate degree. Professional identity is described as a person's perception of themselves within a profession or the collective identity of the profession. The formation of a professional identity is an evolving process, shaped by the media, educational experiences and role modelling. The aim of this study was to develop a greater understanding of the perceptions that students, about to embark on their undergraduate nursing degree, had of the nursing profession...

AIM: The study purpose was to describe students' perceptions of feedback after participating in a teaching strategy designed to foster a view of feedback as an opportunity for improvement. BACKGROUND: Although delivering and receiving constructive feedback are essential to the role of the professional nurse, feedback has been identified as a trigger for incivility in academia and practice. METHOD: Twelve nurse educators from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses Academic Task Force, located at nine schools of nursing across the nation, implemented a presentation about giving and receiving constructive feedback in junior and senior courses...

Students in health care today are very different than those of past generations. Health care education requires both innovation and creativity to meet the changing needs of students. Soft skills such as leadership, communication, nursing informatics, technology, and professionalism can sometimes be lost in pursuit of scientific knowledge. The purpose of this descriptive pilot study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a product designed to assist in the development of soft skills in a bachelor of science in nursing curriculum...

The aim of this study was to understand the breastfeeding experiences of mothers of children with Down syndrome, including their perceptions of the breastfeeding process and their specific practices. This is a qualitative study with 10 participants, mothers of children aged between 2 months and 9 years. Snowball sampling was used for participants' selection, and semi-structured interviews conducted in participants' households...

This study examined whether the association between age and the three burnout dimensions (emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation and reduced personal accomplishment) depend on the extent of nursing professionals' use of emotion-focused coping strategy. Participants were 283 nurses (Mage = 35 years, SD = 8.17, Range = 23-66 years) from a tertiary healthcare institution in south-eastern Nigeria. They completed self-report measures of relevant variables in paper and pencil form. Increased age was associated with reduced personal accomplishment for nurses with high emotion-focused coping, but not for those who were low or moderate in use of emotion-focused coping...

Purpose: To review literature on the nurses' use and access to Internet Health Related Information (HRI). There is relatively little evidence in published literature on barriers, attitudes and how nurses utilize online health-related information. Methods: Literature search was carried-out on Cumulative Indexes to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), MEDLINE, Google Scholar, Springer and Sage publications. The search timeframe has focused on the outburst of Internet usage between the years 2000 and 2014...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Under-reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) by health care professionals (HCPs) is a worldwide problem. Spontaneous reporting in hospitals is scarce and several obstacles have been identified. Improved hospital-based reports could make important contributions to future care. Consequently, the objective of this study was to develop, implement and evaluate a structured pharmacist-driven pharmacovigilance (PV) system for in-patient ADR reporting in a leading public hospital in South Africa, for future use in South Africa and wider...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To generate a theoretical explanation of nurse-to-nurse mentoring in the clinical setting. BACKGROUND: Despite an abundance of mentoring literature, the processes involved between nurses in mentoring relationships has yet to be studied. Nursing literature has focused on mentor attributes and relationship outcomes rather than focusing on theoretical discovery. DESIGN: Classical Grounded Theory (CGT). METHODS: CGT procedures (constant comparative method, coding, and memoing) were used to analyze interview data exploring fifteen nurse protégés' experiences of mentoring...

Background information: Domestic Violence (DV) is associated with serious consequences to the survivor's physical, emotional, sexual, social and mental well-being. DV screening ensures timely detection of violence and hence promotes timely intervention. This timely intervention has the potential of averting adverse outcomes of DV to the survivor. Globally, the prevalence of DV among women is 35% and in Kenya its 49% among women and 13.5% among pregnant women. Despite the adverse outcome of DV in pregnancy, screening during pregnancy lags behind in Kenya...

BACKGROUND: The demand for fetal monitoring and constant reassurance is high in pregnant women. Consequently, pregnant women use various health apps and are more likely to visit emergency departments due to subjective but nonurgent complaints. However, electronic health (eHealth) and mobile health (mHealth) solutions are rarely used to prevent nonurgent emergency consultations. To implement modern care solutions, a better understanding of the attitudes, fears, and hopes of health care professionals toward eHealth and mHealth is needed...

BACKGROUND: There is a pressing need to improve end-of-life care in acute settings. This requires meeting the learning needs of all acute care healthcare professionals to develop broader clinical expertise and bring about positive change. The UK experience with the Liverpool Care of the Dying Pathway (LCP), also demonstrates a greater focus on implementation processes and daily working practices is necessary. METHODS: This qualitative study, informed by Normalisation Process Theory (NPT), investigates how a tool for end-of-life care was embedded in a large Australian teaching hospital...

There is growing evidence that medical device-related pressure ulcers (MDRPUs) are an increasing healthcare concern. Prevention and management is complicated, as they are caused by devices that are often an essential part of treatment. All clinical staff have a duty of care to do no harm. Damage caused by medical devices is iatrogenic, that is, caused through treatment, and may be exacerbated by a lack of assessment and care. This paper details a proposal to reduce the incidence of MDRPU in one UK healthcare trust...

Leadership skills are embedded in the undergraduate nursing curriculum and are essential for post-registration nurses. One way to support the development of these skills is to use the action learning and critical action learning approaches, which can be implemented in both the academic environment and the clinical setting. The process of action learning promotes collaborative multidisciplinary working and affords time for reflection and professional development, in turn supporting the process of applying for revalidation...
