Maternal effects on development can program cell fate and dictate offspring phenotype. Such effects do not end at birth, but extend into postnatal life through signals communicated from mother to offspring in first milk (colostrum). Transmission of bioactive factors from mother to offspring as a specific consequence of nursing defines a lactocrine mechanism. The female reproductive tract is not fully formed at birth (postnatal day = PND 0). Data for ungulates and mice indicate that disruption of development during neonatal life can have lasting effects on the form and function of uterine tissues...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore the lived experiences of patients on receiving a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. BACKGROUND: Persons with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are often diagnosed with cancer when at an advanced stage. This may arise due to a lack of screening programs and delays in help seeking as the symptoms experienced are fairly non-specific in nature. Consequently, receiving an unexpected diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma may pose a psychosocial challenge to the individual...

AIM: To develop nursing-sensitive patient indicators to measure the outcomes of nursing practice. BACKGROUND: Nurses play an important role in the health care system yet there is no consensus on how the impact of nursing work should be evaluated. Limited research has previously examined the views of clinical nurses on the important concepts for measuring nursing practice. DESIGN: A four-round modified Delphi survey sought opinions from patients and nurses about the relevant concepts and their relative priority as indicators of quality nursing practice...

PROBLEM: The aim of this concept analysis was to clarify failure to rescure as a nurse-sensitive indicator. Although the concept of failure to rescue as a nurse-sensitive outcome has appeared in the nursing literature for over a decade, conceptual clarity is needed to address its variable and ambiguous use in health care. METHODS: Walker and Avant's eight-stage method of concept analysis was used to explore the concept of failure to rescue in nursing practice. Twenty-one papers were retrieved from Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) and MEDLINE databases and selected for review and synthesis...

BACKGROUND: Because of physiological changes, elderly people are much more exposed to the adverse effects of alcohol. Therefore, hazardous drinking is defined at lower levels as compared to younger adults. This work aims to evaluate the validity of the current cut off levels of the Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test - Consumption questions (AUDIT-C) to detect hazardous drinking in the elderly by using ethyl glucuronide in hair (HEtG). METHODS: In a border region between Austria and Germany, 344 nursing home residents were included from 33 of the 107 nursing homes...

BACKGROUND: Inpatient, generalist social workers in discharge planning roles work alongside specialist palliative care social workers to care for patients, often resulting in two social workers being concurrently involved in the same patient's care. Previous studies identifying components of effective collaboration, which impacts patient outcomes, care efficiency, professional job satisfaction, and healthcare costs, were conducted with nurses and physicians but not social workers. This study explores ward social workers' perceptions of what facilitates or hinders collaboration with palliative care social workers...

To address manpower shortages, health care leaders recommend technology, including robots, to facilitate and augment processes for delivery of efficient, safe care. Little is known regarding older adults' perceptions of socially assistive robots (SARs). Using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use Technology framework, a survey was developed and tested for capturing older adults' likelihood to use SARs. The Robot Acceptance Survey (RAS) comprises three subscales: Performance Expectancy, Effort Expectancy, and Attitude...

There are challenges and risks in using social media that are well documented in guidance from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the RCN and online platforms such as WeCommunities. Confidentiality, boundaries, appropriate use by vulnerable groups, and responsible and sensitive communication are recurrent themes. The unintended consequence of this may be to deter some nurses from using social media in their professional lives.

As clinical nurse specialists in neonatology and quality of care evaluation, we read with great interest Lin Chen and her colleagues' article (Chen et al., 2017) about the development of nursing-sensitive quality indicators using a Delphi method. However, in our opinion, the authors' methodological choices generate serious questions regarding the validity of these indicators. Indeed, according to Mainz (2003), an ideal indicator has to be relevant for clinical practice, based on an agreed definition, based on scientific evidence and valid...

Frederick S Frost
BACKGROUND: Reducing the incidence of indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) use and early removal of the devices that are inserted are appropriate priorities for quality patient care. Just like symptomatic bacteriuria, failed catheter removal as a complication of IUC use is associated with considerable morbidity. In the ideal setting, patients that need IUCs have them, and patients that do not need them will have them safely removed, with the goal of reducing medical complications and facilitating the rehabilitation phase of care...
