The purpose of this paper was to describe occupational hazards for nurses working in home care (HC) and explore how they differ across the rural-to-urban gradient. Responses (n = 823) from a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2012 of HC nurses registered to practise nursing in the Province of Ontario, Canada were used. Using chi-square analysis and posthoc pairwise tests with a Bonferroni correction, 14 occupational hazards were individually tested for differences between four geographical settings (rural, town, suburban or urban areas)...

The Magnet Recognition Program for healthcare organizations promotes excellence in nursing services and professional practices. However, organizational and community characteristics that contribute to the adoption of Magnet status remain unexplained. Investigating organizational and community factors will help determine systematic structural and contextual dimensions of Magnet hospitals previously shown to be more cost-effective in comparison with non-Magnet hospitals. Using the baseline 2005 database of all Magnet hospitals in the United States, the authors selected a matched sample to determine key organizational and community characteristics associated with Magnet adoption while controlling for regional and local factors...

OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study are to determine the level of emotional intelligence (EI) among nurse managers (NMs) in an academic medical center and determine the relationship of EI and demographic variables. BACKGROUND: Emotional intelligence is a concept that warrants further research in nursing because there is a huge gap in knowledge about nurse leaders' EI. METHODS: Data were collected from 38 NMs recruited from a large academic medical center in the Northeast...

European enlargement has been studied in a wide range of policy areas within and beyond health. Yet the impact of EU enlargement upon one of the largest health professions, nursing, has been largely neglected. This paper aims to explore nurse leadership using a comparative case study method in two former Communist countries, Romania and Croatia. Specifically, it considers the extent to which engagement in the EU accession policy-making process provided a policy window for the leaders to formulate and implement a professional agenda while negotiating EU accession...

Developing compassionate leadership is a priority since high profile failings in older people care have come to light. Little is known regarding how compassionate leadership is perceived in community health care organisations. The aim was to understand how leaders and senior staff within a Community NHS Trust perceive compassionate leadership and its importance. This qualitative study employed semi-structured, audio-recorded interviews analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Purposive sampling was used to recruit nursing leaders (n=11) within one Community NHS Trust...

: 131 Background: UPMC CancerCenter is a large outpatient medical oncology network of 25 locations, located within a 200 mile radius of Pittsburgh, PA. The Cancer Center administers approximately 118,000 treatments and 38,000 injections per year by 200 oncology nurses. Staff members have been strongly encouraged for years to report not only medication errors but also near misses.

: 149 Background: Integrated Ethics provides continuing education monthly for physicians, nurses, social workers, and others to enhance knowledge and understanding of ethical challenges associated with patient care and research. These are offered live at the main campus. There are four regional centers within a thirty-five mile radius of the main campus. Participants from those locations used to have to come to the main campus to participate. This project was initiated to help alleviate rising financial costs associated with the online recording/redistributing of continuing education credit presentations, travel expenses for regional center employees, removal of employees for 4+ hours from the regional centers daily clinical operations to attend presentations, and payment to outside institutions to obtain required ethics CME and CEU credits...

: 226 Background: Patients undergoing complex oncologic operations are at high risk for perioperative complications associated with adverse effects on quality of life, costs and overall outcomes. Complications within 30 days of discharge are most commonly identified during first 48-72 hours post-discharge. Telephone follow-up can provide a safety net and is part of a larger discharge teaching process. Initial review of the current follow up processes underscored many variations. An interdisciplinary team was tasked to optimize discharge processes across the continuum of care which leads to a more efficient follow-up call encounter...
