BACKGROUND: Across low-income settings, community volunteers and health committee members support the formal health system - both routinely and amid emergencies - by engaging in health services such as referrals and health education. During the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic, emerging reports suggest that community engagement was instrumental in interrupting transmission. Nevertheless, literature regarding community volunteers' roles during emergencies generally, and Ebola specifically, is scarce...

INTRODUCTION: Monitoring the health status of populations is essential for good health policy decisions. This is particularly true in maternal and child health where targeted and timely interventions may have long-term consequences. AIM: Our objective was to describe changes in the health status of pregnant women at the national and county level during the period of 1997-2012. METHOD: Data were extracted from the mandatory annual reports of district nurses responsible for primary maternal care...

The majority of the population wishes to die at home. However, most patients die in hospitals or nursing homes. What do health care professionals know about the choices of their patients in this matter? This study concerns persons who died from natural causes during the 1st semester of 2013 in 2 districts of the canton of Vaud. 241 of their health care professionals answered a questionnaire. Only 35.6 % knew their patient's wishes pertaining to where their death should take place. Despite the opportunity to speak about it with one's GP, the issue is not usually raised...

BACKGROUND: As more high-risk newborns survive the neonatal period, they remain at significant medical, nutritional, and developmental risk. However, no follow-up system for early intervention exists in most developing countries. In 2014, a novel Pediatric Development Clinic (PDC) was implemented to provide comprehensive follow-up to at-risk under-five children, led by nurses and social workers in a district hospital and surrounding health centers in rural Rwanda. METHODS: At each PDC visit, children undergo clinical/nutritional assessment and caregivers participate in counseling sessions...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: In Sri Lanka, as in most low-to-middle-income countries (LMICs), early warning systems (EWSs) are not in use. Understanding observation-reporting practices and response to deterioration is a necessary step in evaluating the feasibility of EWS implementation in a LMIC setting. This study describes the practices of observation reporting and the recognition and response to presumed cardiopulmonary arrest in a LMIC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This retrospective study was carried out at District General Hospital Monaragala, Sri Lanka...

BACKGROUND: There is limited evidence on how health care inputs are distributed from the sub-national level down to health facilities and their potential influence on promoting health equity. To address this gap, this paper assesses equity in the distribution of health care inputs across public primary health facilities at the district level in Tanzania. METHODS: This is a quantitative assessment of equity in the distribution of health care inputs (staff, drugs, medical supplies and equipment) from district to facility level...

BACKGROUND: Community-centred health interventions, such as Safe Motherhood Action groups (SMAGs), have potential to lead to desired health behavioural change and favourable health outcomes. SMAGs are community-based volunteer groups that aim to reduce critical delays that occur at household level with regard to decision-making about seeking life-saving maternal care at health facilities. The aim of this study was to explore perspectives, roles, achievements and challenges of the SMAG programme in Kalomo, Zambia...

As policy directives gather pace for service provision to be delivered in primary care, district nursing has not been recognised as a valuable asset to facilitate this agenda. Investment in district nursing and specialist district nursing education has fallen. This is concurrent with an ageing district nursing workforce, a lack of recruitment and growing caseloads, as district nursing adapts to meet the challenges of the complexities of contemporary healthcare in the community. The district nurse role is complex and multifaceted and includes working collaboratively and creatively to coordinate care...

The case study explores how the expansion of the health services during the interwar period impacted upon the status of district nursing and examines how being a voluntary service shaped district nursing associations. A range of primary sources were used; the Association Annual Reports, the Medical Officer for Health Annual Reports for the Borough of Chelsea, the Ministry of Health records, the archives of the Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI) and the Borough of Chelsea Council Minutes. The Medical Officer for Health Reports and the Council minutes identify efforts to improve environmental factors that impacted upon health...

Aim The burden of referrals to investigate sleep disorders has escalated considerably. In order to address this, the feasibility of a nurse-led sleep disorder clinic was investigated. Methods Sleep referrals were stratified on the basis of information contained within the primary care referral, and appropriate home-based sleep studies arranged if obstructive sleep apnoea was considered the most likely working diagnosis. Selected patients were started on continuous positive airway pressure treatment if deemed appropriate...

Charles R Davis
In comparison to other professional staff in an educational based setting, the registered professional school nurse has unique roles, responsibilities, education, training, and scope of practice. In carrying out this unique and specialized role, school nurses operate under a building administrator, the leader of the building and often the immediate supervisor of the school nurse. In addition, many school nurses in small districts are the only registered professional nurse employed by the school. The building administrator's leadership style not only sets the tone for the day-to-day operations in the school but also impacts the school nurse functioning and program implementation...

BACKGROUND: Women with disabilities are less likely to receive maternal healthcare services compared to women without disabilities. While few studies have reviewed healthcare experience of women with disabilities, no studies have been conducted to understand provider's attitude towards disability in Nepal, yet the attitude and behaviour of healthcare providers may have a significant influence on aspects of care and the use of service by women with disabilities. This study examines healthcare provider's attitudes towards disability and explores the experience of women with disabilities in maternal healthcare service utilization during pregnancy and childbirth...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the impact of Embrace (Dutch: SamenOud), a new primary care model for community-living people aged over 75 years on perceived quality of care. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial in 15 general practices in the East Groningen region of the Netherlands. METHOD: In the period January 2012-March 2013, 1456 general practice patients aged 75 years and older were stratified on the basis of self-reporting into 3 risk profiles: 'robust', 'frail' and 'complex care needs', and then randomized to the intervention or the control arm...

Solution-focussed brief therapy (SFBT) can be applied to effectively address a broad range of mental health-, alcohol-, and substance-related challenges. The compatibility that SFBT has with mental health nursing practice has been widely recognized. The aim of the present mixed-methods study was to introduce and evaluate the utility of SFBT principles, strategies, and techniques to the clinical work of mental health nurses from a local health district in Sydney, Australia. Following a 4-hour introductory SFBT workshop, participants were invited to complete a one-page evaluation and undertake a follow-up individual telephone interview with a research assistant...

Despite benefits to sharing data among public health programs, confidentiality laws are often presumed to obstruct collaboration or data sharing. We present an overview of the use and release of confidential, personally identifiable information as consistent with public health interests and identify opportunities to align data-sharing procedures with use and release provisions in state laws to improve program outcomes. In August 2013, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staff and legal researchers from the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium conducted a review of state laws regulating state and local health departments in 50 states and the District of Columbia...
