This is of particular concern, as children especially have an increased vulnerability to ADRs. OBJECTIVES: The objective was to seek consensus among healthcare professionals (HCPs) about barriers and facilitators to the linkage of routinely collected health data for pediatric pharmacovigilance in Scotland...

Action learning sets (ALS) are used widely for organisational and workforce development, including in nursing (Anderson and Thorpe, 2004; Pounder, 2009; Young et al., 2010). In the United Kingdom, a multi-faceted educational Pilot programme for new nurses and midwives was implemented to accelerate their clinical practice and leadership development (NHS Education Scotland, 2010). Action Learning Sets were provided for peer support and personal development. The Realistic Evaluation study reported in this paper explored issues of context, mechanism and outcome (Pawson and Tilley, 1997) influencing the action learning experiences of: programme participants (recently qualified nurses and midwives, from different practice settings); and programme supporters...

OBJECTIVE: To explore and describe the experiences of working in the dual role as nurse and midwife in rural areas of far north Queensland, Australia. METHOD: The methodology was informed by Heidegger's interpretive phenomenological philosophy and data analysis was guided by van Manen's analytical approach. Data was generated by conversational interviews. Eight midwives working in a dual role as midwife and nurse were interviewed individually. FINDINGS: Three themes were identified: Making choices between professional role and lifestyle: "Because I choose to live here"; Integration of maternity and general nursing: "All in together this fine weather" and: "That's part of working in a small place"...

OBJECTIVE: Workforce recruitment and retention challenges are being experienced in public health as in other Canadian health sectors. While there are many nurses working in public health, little research has been done about their job satisfaction. Job satisfaction is linked to recruitment, retention and positive client outcomes. The purpose of this research was to examine the relationships between three modifiable work environment factors (autonomy, control-over-practice, and workload) and Canadian public health nurses' (PHNs) job satisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Current human resources planning models in nursing are unreliable and ineffective as they consider volumes, but ignore effects on quality in patient care. The project RN4CAST aims innovative forecasting methods by addressing not only volumes, but quality of nursing staff as well as quality of patient care. METHODS/DESIGN: A multi-country, multilevel cross-sectional design is used to obtain important unmeasured factors in forecasting models including how features of hospital work environments impact on nurse recruitment, retention and patient outcomes...

As the aging baby boom generation begins to place additional pressures on the health care system and the nursing workforce of the same generation begins to retire, the worsening nursing shortage has the potential to seriously impact the delivery of health care in the United States and is receiving considerable attention nationwide. Although federal initiatives such as the Nurse Reinvestment Act are critical, issues of supply and demand for registered nurses must also be addressed at the state level. In Maine, nursing leadership has partnered with state policy makers and health care industry leaders in a multi-year initiative that has included the nursing community's envisioning its "preferred future," formal data collection on the nursing workforce, ongoing education of the Maine State Legislature about the nursing shortage, and legislative initiatives...
