#1
Bobbi J Palmer, Kathy Ham
Beginning nursing students typically report anxiety, low self-confidence, and difficulty transferring theoretical knowledge to the clinical setting prior to their first clinical experience. To address these issues, first-semester faculty in a prelicensure, undergraduate nursing program created a collaborative simulation experience (CSE). Implementation prior to the first clinical day provided real-life exposure to patient care, enhanced the transfer of knowledge, decreased anxiety, promoted self-confidence, and allowed faculty to identify students' strengths and weaknesses...

Nurse educators are charged to develop and evaluate curricula on systems thinking to prepare future nurses to provide safe nursing care. The goal of this pilot study was to design and evaluate a four-hour educational strategy that prepares future professional nurses to use systems thinking approaches in the delivery of safe patient care. This study exposed prelicensure baccalaureate nursing students to systems thinking principles, which included didactic and experiential activities. A descriptive design was used to determine the effect of an on-campus educational strategy...

Safe and sufficient water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH) prevent the spread of disease in health-care facilities (HCFs). Little research has been conducted on WaSH in HCF in sub-Saharan Africa. We carried out a cross-sectional study of WaSH in 1,318 randomly selected rural HCF (hospitals, health centers, health posts, and clinics) in regions throughout Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. Methods included questionnaires with head doctors and nurses to document WaSH access, continuity, quality, quantity and reliability, and analysis of drinking water samples for Escherichia coli...

End-of-life situations are fraught with challenges for patients, family members, and individuals working at the patient's bedside. Care workers must address needs of the patient, as well as his or her distressed family members. This article is an inductive investigation of care workers' (nurses, patient advocates, and clergy) experiences with end-of-life discussions when the family asks to "do everything." Participants also noted resistance to hospice in some of these encounters based on pre-existing connotations of hospice held by the family members...

Robert G Drake
Following a decade of dissemination, particularly within the British National Health Service, electronic rostering systems were recently endorsed within the Carter Review. However, electronic rostering necessitates the formal codification of the roster process. This research investigates that codification through the lens of the 'Roster Policy', a formal document specifying the rules and procedures used to prepare staff rosters. This study is based upon analysis of 27 publicly available policies, each approved within a 4-year period from January 2010 to July 2014...

BACKGROUND: The Taiwanese government has promoted palliative care consultation services (PCCS) to support terminally ill patients in acute ward settings to receive palliative care since 2005. Such an intervention can enhance the quality of life and dignity of terminally ill patients. However, research focusing on the relationship between the knowledge, attitude and practice of a PCCS using path modelling in nursing staff is limited. Therefore, the aim of this study was to elucidate the effect of path modeling on the knowledge, attitude and practice toward PCCS in Taiwanese nursing staff...

BACKGROUND: Green care is an umbrella term for psychosocial interventions that integrate biotic and abiotic elements of nature to promote an individual's health and well-being. Green care decreases depressive symptoms but the parts of the interventions that lead to this effect are unknown. OBJECTIVES: Review of literature to evaluate perceived social support, behavioral activation, and self-efficacy as key ingredients to decrease depressive symptoms in psychosocial interventions and extrapolate those mediators, or key ingredients, to green care...

Mohamed El Hussein, Sandra Hirst, Joseph Osuji
Delirium is an acute disorder of attention and cognition. It affects half of older adults in acute care settings and is a cause of increasing mortality and costs. Registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) frequently fail to recognize delirium. The goals of this research were to identify the reasoning processes that RNs and LPNs use to recognize delirium, to compare their reasoning processes, and to generate a theory that explains their clinical reasoning processes. Theoretical sampling was employed to elicit data from 28 participants using grounded theory methodology...

Bradley Kamstra, Mark K Huntington
Population health management (PHM) is a new health care model being implemented. It has been defined as "the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group." This includes health outcomes and patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions that link these two. Moving from a fee-for-service payment system to a quality- or value-based system, this model places on the clinician more responsibility for the costs of health care and its reimbursements...

AIM: The aim of the study was to develop a sustainable annual symposium to support doctoral students in nursing across the state of Georgia. BACKGROUND: A goal of the nursing profession, highlighted in the Institute of Medicine Future of Nursing report of 2011, is to increase the number of nurses with doctorates. They are needed to fill faculty positions as professors retire and to step into leadership positions as health care systems become more complex. METHOD: The Georgia Nursing Leadership Coalition developed a Doctoral Symposium in 2014 that has been repeated annually...
