REVIEW
Ruishuang Zheng, Susan Fiona Lee, Melissa Jane Bloomer
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To review literature on nurses' coping strategies with patient death. BACKGROUND: dealing with the loss of a patient was viewed as one of the most demanding and challenging encounters in clinical practice. Those nurses who are not competent in coping with patient death may be inadequate in supporting dying patients and their family members, and minimize the quality of end-of-life care. To get a broader understanding of how nurses cope with patient death and to develop meaningful and effective interventions, a systematic review which would help underpin the multidimensional approaches is needed...

Meeting men's health needs by improving healthcare service access is a key objective of comprehensive primary health care. The aims of this qualitative study were to explore the perception of nurses in men's health services and to describe men's expectation of the nurse. The comparative component identifies the barriers and facilitators to improved access to health services. A purposive sample of 19 nurses and 20 men was recruited from metropolitan and regional settings in the state of Victoria, Australia, and each participant was interviewed individually or as part of three focus groups...

BACKGROUND: Voluntary medication error reporting is an imperfect resource used to improve the quality of medication administration. It requires judgment by front-line staff to determine how to report enough to identify opportunities to improve patient safety but not jeopardize that safety by creating a culture of "report fatigue." OBJECTIVE: This study aims to provide information on interpretability of medication error and the variability between subgroups of caregivers in the hospital setting...
