BACKGROUND: The demographic structure of a country changes dramatically with increasing trends toward general population aging and declining birth rates. In Japan, the percentage of the elderly population (aged ≥65 years) reached 25% in 2013; it is expected to exceed 30% in 2025 and reach 39.9% in 2060. The national total population has been decreasing steadily since its peak reached in 2008, and it is expected to fall to the order of 80 million in 2060. Of the total population, those aged ≥75 years accounted for 12...

Chronic noncancer pain (CNCP) is a common and complex disorder associated with declines in physical health and functional status, emotional well-being, and quality of life. To best address the complexity of this condition, research and clinical practice for CNCP should be guided by a framework incorporating both biologic and psychologic factors. This article presents a biobehavioral model of chronic pain that hypothesizes mechanisms related to the effectiveness of a complementary therapy, guided imagery (GI), for this population...

BACKGROUND: Gender identity disorder and the process of transitioning involve both mental and physical health, yet there is virtually no discussion of transgender health care in occupational therapy. PURPOSE: This study draws on interviews with primary-care nurses and physicians about their experience with transgender health care, extending the insights gleaned there to make suggestions for occupational therapy practice with this population. METHOD: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 12 primary care nurses and 9 physicians who had clinical experience with lesbian, gay, and bisexual patients...

The aim of this study was to explore mental health staffs' experiences of assisting people with psychotic disorders to implement lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent metabolic syndrome. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 12 health care professionals working in psychosis outpatient care in Sweden. Data were analysed using a qualitative content analysis. The results illustrate that implementation of lifestyle changes among people with psychotic disorders was experienced as difficult, but possible...

Introduction While most people who are involved in disasters recover with the support of their families, friends and colleagues, the effects on some people's health, relationships and welfare can be extensive and sustained. Flooding can pose substantial social and mental health problems that may continue over extended periods of time. Flooding can challenge the psychosocial resilience of the hardiest of people who are affected. Methods The Health Protection Agency (HPA) undertook a review of the literature published from 2004 to 2010...

Insufficient priority is being given to meet the physical health-care needs of people with mental illness. Mental health nurses, as the largest professional group working in mental health care, have a pivotal role in improving the physical health and well-being of people with mental illness. Through health-promotion strategies, alongside recovery-focused support aimed at avoiding deteriorating physical health, mental health nurses can significantly contribute to improving the current rate of premature death experienced by people with enduring mental illness...

BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent progressive musculoskeletal disorder, leading to pain and disability. Patient information and education are considered core elements in treatment guidelines for OA; however, there is to our knowledge no evidence-based recommendation on the best approach, content or length on educational programmes in OA. OBJECTIVE: to develop a brief, patient oriented disease specific multidisciplinary education programme (MEP) to enhance self-management in patients with OA...

The purpose of this review is to critically appraise the pain assessment tools for non communicative persons in intensive care available in the literature and to determine their relevance for those with brain injury. Nursing and medical electronic databases were searched to identify pain tools, with a description of psychometric proprieties, in English and French. Seven of the ten tools were considered relevant and systematically evaluated according to the criteria and the indicators in the following five areas: conceptualisation, target population, feasibility and clinical utility, reliability and validity...

This paper reports on a survey of attitudes to mental illness that was completed with a cohort of pre-registration nurses in 2007 in a large university in Essex. The background literature highlights the effects of attitudes on stigma, disadvantage and discrimination and presents a brief review of the literature on cultural variations in attitudes. It also briefly reviews the attitudes of health professionals to mental illness. A survey using the Community Attitudes to Mental Illness questionnaire was completed and ethnicity proved to be an important factor in accounting for variations in attitudes to mental illness...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to illuminate what the mental health nursing (MHN) leader needs in order to develop her/his leadership role. BACKGROUND: MHN leadership has tended to focus on the nature of the care provided rather than the development of the role. METHOD: This literature review (1998-2008) examines papers from the past decade by means of a synthesis of empirical studies. RESULTS: Three themes emerged: * clarifying role expectations and areas for development at the same time as increasing the influence on patients with mental health problems; * using evidence-based practice to implement improvements and organizational change in mental health; and * employing communication skills as well as supporting, nurturing and empowering others...

In our daily practice in public hospitals, we are regularly confronted with the paradox of helping patients, who do not ask for help. Although the French law is clearly defined to allow us to treat patients suffering from psychiatric conditions, who are unable to give their consent, it is not the case for those with addictive disorders. In fact, their disorder does not always (or does not yet) justify treatment without their consent, according to the 1990 law (psychiatric treatment without the patient's consent)...

AIM: This paper is a report of a study exploring the medical and nursing decision-making process associated with the prescription and administration of 'as needed' psychotropic medication. BACKGROUND: The administration of 'as needed' psychotropic medications is a relatively autonomous component of a nurse's role, allowing for the capacity to administer psychotropic medications rapidly in acute situations or at the request of a patient. From the research evidence available to date, it is very difficult to determine how doctors and nurses make decisions about the prescription and administration of 'as needed' psychotropic medications...

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States in both men and women and is thus a major public health problem. The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2007, approximately 153,760 people in the United States were diagnosed with colorectal cancer and about 52,180 died of the disease. Colorectal cancer is largely preventable, however, and often curable when detected early. About 80% of people with colorectal cancer seem to have sporadic disease with no evidence of inheriting the disorder, and the remaining 20% have a familial or hereditary risk...

Communication is vitally important in relationships and a hearing loss can have a profound impact on a person's desire to interact with others. Embarrassment and frustration can cause a person to withdraw and avoid social situations leading to isolation and depression. Persons who recognize they have a hearing problem, seek treatment, and have benefited from available therapies are able to have better relationships with friends and family, feel better about themselves, have improved mental health, and feel greater security and independence...

REVIEW
Penelope Thompson, Lyn Lang, Merilyn Annells
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim was to systematically review evidence about the effectiveness of in-home community nurse-led interventions for older persons with, or at risk of, mental health disorders, to inform best practice nursing care with this focus. The primary review question was 'How effective are in-home community nurse-led interventions for older persons with or at risk of mental health disorders for improving mental health?' The outcome indices of interest were nursing actions to determine incidence or prevalence of mental health disorders, any change in a patient's attitude towards their mental health condition, any change in objective measurement of mental health, or a change in diagnostic status...

BACKGROUND: Within the context of knowledge translation, the disconnect between the results of research and the practice patterns of nursing care providers has not been reported in the context of institutional dementia care practice. Therefore, little is known about how knowledge about best dementia care practice, defined broadly as the person-centered approach, gets used by institutional nursing care providers. AIM: Unregulated care providers provide the majority of nursing care for older people with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders living in long-term care facilities...

Often, baccalaureate nursing students initially approach a psychiatric mental health practicum with uncertainty, and even fear. They may feel unprepared for the myriad complex practice situations encountered. In addition, memories of personal painful life events may be vicariously evoked through learning about and listening to the experiences of those diagnosed with mental disorders. When faced with such challenging situations, nursing students often seek counsel from the clinical and/or classroom faculty. Pedagogic boundaries may begin to blur in the face of student distress...
