The will is a word that nurses may use to describe their patients' actions or inactions. This concept has been extensively addressed by religions, psychologists, and philosophers. Ricoeur offered a phenomenology of the will in which three overarching key concepts were uncovered: decision, action, and consent. In this article, Ricoeur's elaborative and exhaustive description of these three concepts is summarized. Examples as to how a phenomenology of the will may guide nurses in their day-to-day clinical practice in caring are provided...

The concept of unintended consequences is widely discussed in the realms of politics or economics, but not as frequently as related to health care. Nursing professionals act with the intent to improve health outcomes for patients; however, with every action, there are risks and consequences that may or may not be anticipated. This article utilizes a modified version of Walker and Avant's framework for concept analysis (2011) to identify the characteristics, defining attributes, and antecedents of the concept of unintended consequences, present a model case and empirical referents, and provide a practical and theoretical application to nursing...

The purpose of this study was to describe the participation of nurses and nurse leaders in self-organizing teams formed to develop innovative nursing care. The theoretical perspective combines Bondas' caritative theory on nursing leadership with Waterman's and Dolan's work on ad hoc organizations. Seven self-organizing teams participated in a 2-year action research project. Data were collected through fieldwork, formal and informal individual and group interviews, and diaries. Analytical abstraction methodology described by Miles et al was used...

Free clinics have been a source of health care for uninsured and low-income Americans for half a century and serve some of the nation's most vulnerable within their home community. Despite parallels to nursing's significant involvement in the formation of free public clinics and commitment to care for all, there is paucity of nursing literature about free clinics. This article details the history of U.S. free clinics and the intersections among free clinics and value-based care, health reform, and tax reform, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017...

Posture changes have been known for a long time to influence the concentration of many analytes in blood especially macromolecules. It is very clear that when someone switches from supine to sitting or standing or from sitting to standing a hemoconcentration is induced. Similarly, when someone switches from standing to sitting or lying a hemodilution occurs. In the context of clinical chemistry, rules have been issued to buffer the impact of postural changes close to the blood specimen collection (e.g. 15 min of seated rest before the blood puncture)...

Innovative patient education interventions are needed to support patient education and patient self-care. METHODS: Participatory action research methods were used to engage consumers with cardiac and IT experts to develop an avatar-based education application...

INTRODUCTION: Heart Failure (HF) is a common cause of hospitalization in older adults. The transition from hospital to home is high-risk, and gaps in transitional care can increase the risk of re-hospitalization and death. Combining health care services supported by meta-analyses, we designed the PACT-HF transitional care model. METHODS: Adopting an integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) approach in which decision-makers and clinicians are partners in research, we implement and test the effectiveness of PACT-HF among patients hospitalized for HF...

Feedback within clinical practice is known to be central to the learning and development of student nurses and midwives. A study that focused on student experience of assessment identified that a high proportion of students reported that they had received insufficient feedback whilst on clinical placement. In response to this academics and members of the clinical education team set out to explore this with a view to improving the student experience using action research. Key findings indicated that responsibility for feedback on clinical placement lies with both students and mentors, distinct factors can enable effective feedback and that positive outcomes for mentors and students resulted through engaging with the project...

Critical thinking is an important indicator of student learning and is an essential outcome of baccalaureate nursing education. The role of nurse educators in the development of students' critical thinking has been overlooked despite the importance of their actions to facilitate critical thinking in nursing education. We used a constructivist grounded theory approach within a larger mixed methods triangulation study to explore how nurse educators revealed their critical thinking in practice. From the grounded theory approach, a model emerged from our research, outlining the important aspects of nurse educators' critical thinking and how it is revealed in the clinical setting...

BACKGROUND: Spiritual care to patients is important for their well-being, and nurses do have a crucial role in it. Previous research focused on self-assessed competence in providing spiritual care, but little is known about the actual provision. The aims of this study were as follows: (i) to evaluate how often nurses provide spiritual care, (ii) if or which association there is between self-assessed competency and provision of spiritual care, and (iii) to study which factors do have influence on delivering spiritual care...

This study was designed to describe and quantify the experiences of nurse leaders working to influence policy and to build consensus for priority skills and knowledge useful in policy efforts within the context of a nursing conceptual framework. The conceptual model for nursing and health policy and the Adams influence model were combined into a conceptual framework used to guide this two-round modified Delphi study. Twenty-two nurse leaders who were members of a state action coalition participated in the Round 1 focus group; 15 of these leaders completed the Round 2 electronic survey...

Background: Shared decision-making has received national and international interest by providers, educators, researchers, and policy makers. The literature on shared decision-making is extensive, dealing with the individual components of shared decision-making rather than a comprehensive process. This view of shared decision-making leaves healthcare providers to wonder how to integrate shared decision-making into practice. Objective: To understand shared decision-making as a comprehensive process from the perspective of the patient and provider in all healthcare settings...
