Yaowarat Matchim, Parinya Raetong
AIM: To describe Thai nursing students' experiences of providing end-of-life care (EoLC). METHODS: Data were collected via in-depth interviews with 21 nursing students and were analysed using Van Manen's method. FINDINGS: Eight themes emerged based on Van Manen's four lived worlds: feeling excited and worried when receiving an assigned case; feeling disappointed with the health-care team's provision of psychosocial support for patients at the end-of-life and their families; being in a time of uncertainty; recognising that EoLC is a time for gaining merit; knowing that a peaceful place and privacy are needed for promoting a peaceful death; knowing that the real-life classroom is around the patient's bedside; feeling lonely and needing help and support; and creating relationships with patients and families as a nurse...

PURPOSE: Pain management within emergency departments (ED) remains challenging. Given that unrelieved pain in children is linked to a number of negative physiological and psychological consequences, optimal management of children's pain is paramount. Many studies exploring children's pain have adopted quantitative methods or sought the perspectives of adults. Compared to adults, studies examining children's views on pain and pain management are limited. This study aimed to explore children's pain experiences, their perception of pain management and expectations of the role of the nurse...

BACKGROUND: Several barriers to successful breastfeeding exist, including a lack of support from peers or professionals. With the emergence of mobile health (mHealth) tools to provide additional breastfeeding support, a more thorough review of social support resources was needed. Research Aim: The aim of this study was to determine mHealth breastfeeding support resources and characterize the type of social support they provide. METHODS: A content analysis of mHealth programs ( n = 65), including text messaging ( n = 12) and mobile applications ( n = 53), was conducted on the basis of searches of the iTunes and Google Play stores ( n = 50) and PubMed, the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health, and American Business Information/INFORM Complete Plus ( n = 15)...

In the current international context, emergency medical services have to be prepared for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear events. Emergency response to radiological or nuclear events requires coordination between many components: the fire brigade, emergency medical services (including nurses and physicians), police, hospitals, etc. To optimize efficiency, victim management in France is governed by specific policies and planned responses. This plan for radiological/nuclear event response is inspired by military chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear victim management in the operational theatre and is based on extraction (removal to a safe environment), first triage, decontamination, second triage, treatment, substance identification, and training...

Background: Despite the existence of autism spectrum disorder in Ghana, few studies have provided the necessary information on the phenomenon. These studies have mostly focused on speech and language therapy for children and modification of classroom environment for children with autism spectrum disorder. This approach has resulted in a paucity of knowledge on nurse's knowledge of autism spectrum disorder in Ghana. Objective: The study sought to assess the knowledge of paediatric and psychiatric on autism spectrum disorder...

INTRODUCTION: The suicide rate in Guyana was five times higher than the world average in 2014 (WHO) which puts Guyana at the top of the list with 44.2 per 100,000 people, the highest suicide rate in the world. For every completed suicide, there are survivors who experience high levels of psychological, physical, and social distress, and report feelings of guilt, shame, social stigma, and search for meaning. AIM: The aim of this qualitative study was to explore how family members coped and understand the suicide of their loved one, and to determine what resources were available to help them during this transition...

PURPOSE: Endometrial cancer is the sixth most common female cancer worldwide. There is little evidence that routine hospital surveillance increases survival or decreases morbidity following treatment. Gynaecology Oncology clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) are ideally placed to provide the care, information and support to enable women with a gynaecological cancer to self-manage and live well. A multi-centre randomised controlled trial (RCT) compared hospital follow-up (HFU) with telephone follow-up (TFU) by CNSs...

BACKGROUND: A clear imperative exists to optimize the preoperative pain management of hip fracture patients. Increasingly, fascia iliaca compartment blocks (FICBs) are being effectively utilized as an adjunct to oral analgesia in the emergency department. PURPOSE: We investigated the feasibility, safety, and delivery rate when junior doctors and specialist nurses are trained in FICBs delivery, alongside the introduction of a step-by-step proforma. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of hip fractures patients presenting preinterventions (n = 138) between October and December 2014 and postinterventions (n = 246) between April and August 2015...

Luke Burgess, Kathryn Kynoch, Sonia Hines
BACKGROUND: Triage is the process by which emergency departments (EDs) sort patients presenting for medical treatment. The Australasian Triage Scale, validated to measure urgency, answers the question 'This patient should wait for medical assessment and treatment no longer than…' Multiple patients may present within short time frames, and some will have conditions that have outcomes directly related to timeliness of treatment such as stroke, sepsis and myocardial infarction. The safety of patients within the ED is thus directly related to the triage system...

Human trafficking is a human rights violation and a global health problem. Victims of human trafficking have medical and mental health sequelae requiring specific healthcare interventions. Healthcare professionals may be the initial contact that these victims make outside the world of trafficking. Healthcare professionals are key agents in the identification of human trafficking, which is essential in eliminating this public health problem. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals are not always able to detect signs of human trafficking...
