  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - Modern day slavery
    • Abstract: Levett, Coral
      At the recent International Council of Nurses (ICN) Congress held in Melbourne, I attended a very interesting panel presentation titled Modern Day Slavery. The panel included speakers Joy Johnson from Canada, Joy Ngozi Ezeilo from Nigeria, and Jintana Yunibhand from Thailand. Like many people in the room, I had made some assumptions about slavery being a thing of the past for the most part, acknowledging the practice may still be present in some developing nations that are not so much under the international microscope. It conjured up thoughts of chains and shackles, imprisonment and deprivation. But this is only the slavery of those who have known liberty.

  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - Reducing the caesarean section rate
    • Abstract: Lee, Nigel
      It is estimated that one third of women experience back pain in labour (Tzeng and Su 2008). Clinicians commonly attribute malposition of the foetus and associated labour dystocia as a major contributor to back pain in labour (Simkin 2010). It has been reported that labour dystocia is a major justification for implementing Caesarean Section (CS) during labour (Gifford et al 2000).

    • Abstract: Young, Jeanine; Higgins, Niall; Raven, Leanne; Watson, Marcus
      Nurses and midwives have a key role in supporting public health safe sleeping recommendations demonstrated to reduce Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Infancy (SUDI) through role modelling in clinical practice and in parent education (Bullock et al 2004; Burrell and Stairs 2012). The aim of this study was to evaluate the reach, sustainability and effectiveness of an evidence based eLearning program in positively impacting knowledge and knowledge application relating to sudden infant death and safe sleeping recommendations.

    • Abstract: Emmanuel, Elizabeth; Sun, Jing
      During pregnancy, expectations develop as women prepare themselves for motherhood. These expectations suggest functioning and performance continue as before pregnancy. Often mothers anticipate they will be able to maintain their health related quality of life (HRQoL) despite increased challenges and hassles pregnancy brings. Few studies have investigated the effect of maternal expectations on HRQoL in pregnancy. The aim of the study was to examine the influence of maternal expectations on HRQoL during pregnancy.

  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - Cord clamping: It may be just a matter of time
    • Abstract: Barnes, Anne
      A nursing intervention has been described as "care that a nurse provides which is intended to enhance outcomes for the client". The nurse uses their clinical knowledge and judgement before instigating an intervention (Bulechek et al 2013). A midwifery intervention might be described similarly. Hutchon (2012) refers to the clamping of the umbilical cord at the time of birth as an intervention.

  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - Cervical cancer prevention tool kit for Australian

    • Abstract: Pavicic, Heidi; Munro, Aime; Steel, Nerida; Williams, Natalie
      Cervical cancer is a worldwide health issue and one of the most preventable of all cancers (World Health Organization [WHO] 2013). Australia adopts an organised approach to cervical screening and encourages women's participation in cervical screening to detect abnormal cell changes in the cervix, which if left undetected and untreated may progress to cervical cancer (National Cervical Screening Program [NCSP] 2011). In Australia, 631 new cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed in 2009 and 152 women died from the disease in 2010 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW] 2013). All women who are sexually active are at risk of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection; it is estimated 75% will involve an oncogenic HPV type (Peto et al 2004). Throughout Australia in 2011, eight out of every 1,000 women screened had a histologically confirmed high-grade cervical abnormality, providing an opportunity to treat women before possible progression to cancer (AIHW 2013).

  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - The perils of missing the point
    • Abstract: Starr, Linda
      An inquest is a fact finding exercise, it is not a trial. There are no 'parties' to the proceedings, no charges are laid and no guilt is apportioned to anyone. However, in this fact finding mission to determine how, when and where the person died and the cause of death, the coroner will often make recommendations directed at improving systems and practice to prevent another death occurring in similar circumstances. This was the case at the Inquest into the Death of Adam Trent Ryan where the recommendations remind us of the value of basic good communication and documentation skills.

      Due to the inclusion of so many new topics on the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) website we have changed the appearance of the available topics menu. It is now broken up into sub topics allowing you to easily locate topics related to your area of work. The sub topics include: core nursing topics, critical care, general nursing, midwifery, mental health and aged care. We have also added five new topics in the past month, arterial blood gases, two more telehealth tutorials, communicating with psychotic patients and seizure recognition in nursing practice.

  • Volume 21 Issue 2 - Victory claimed on the back of exploitation
    • Abstract: Bryce, Julianne
      Recently, the Fair Work Commission (FWC) handed down its decision on the wages case for nurses in general practice. The ANF lodged a claim for a low paid bargaining authorisation on behalf of nurses in general practice employed in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania at the end of 2011. What followed was a lengthy hearing process involving registered and enrolled nurses working in general practice, employers, unions and expert witnesses from the general practice and education sectors.

    • Abstract: Chaperon, Yvonne
      As you all know, I have been writing about ANF campaigning in the aged care sector for many years. You, our members got behind the ANF's Because We Care campaign by sending emails and letters to many politicians, marching with us in many states and territories and vising your local members. We all hoped we would make a difference. Well I can finally report to you that five Aged Care Bills passed both Houses of Parliament at the end of June marking a historic achievement for the Federal Labor Government's $3.7 billion Living Longer Living Better aged care reforms. This is a victory for older people and families, aged care nurses and workers, health professionals and aged care providers who have campaigned for these reforms over the past four years.

    • Abstract: Jones, Sally-Anne
      There are many sources in the academic literature that explore the physical impact and potentially deadly outcomes long term on the health of nurses and midwives because of their work. Additionally, being professions that are engaged in a high degree of emotional labour, there are impacts on resilience, emotions, moods and social relationships - at work and at home. Fatigue and burnout in the caring professions also feature in the literature, so the concepts are not new.

Now, the WISH Project (Working to Improve Survival and Health of babies born preterm), supported by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, is working to bring Australian and New Zealand clinical practice in line with the recommendations from these guidelines (ARCH 2013).

    • Abstract: Franklin, Natasha; Chadwick, Sharlene
      Vanessa is a nurse with a diverse background in clinical, education and managerial roles and regarded in high esteem amongst her colleagues for being approachable, hard-working and an innovative and a valued team member. Vanessa however, resigned from her position when her role became untenable due her employment responsibilities being reduced below the level of her knowledge, skills and experience. She experienced being excluded from meetings and the day to day operational activities within the department, unable to move forward with existing or new projects due to her manager failing to respond to such requests and being exposed to intimidating and threatening behaviour from her manager. Despite Vanessa's attempts to resolve the situation by raising her concerns with her manager, then the Director of Nursing followed by the Human Resource Manager, Vanessa left her position experiencing feelings of fear, anxiety, self-doubts regarding her professional capability, worthlessness as a person and feelings of depression. Regardless of Vanessa's professional background, she did not recognise this situation as workplace bullying and left the organisation blaming herself by asking "what did I do wrong and what could I have done differently'"

With MDG targets due to be met in three years' time, internationally renowned speakers at the recent International Council of Nurses 25th Quadrennial Congress discussed the current state of global health as well as the impact nurses and midwives have in achieving the MDGs.

      During the course of their day to day practice, nurses will invariably encounter situations in which they may be required to make a moral decision. In some instances, despite deciding what they believe is the 'right thing to do', nurses may nonetheless feel constrained in acting on their moral judgments and, in the end, either do nothing or do what they believe is the wrong thing to do. This situation has been hypothesised as giving rise to what has been controversially termed 'moral distress'.

  • Volume 21 Issue 1 - Overcoming disability
    • Abstract: Kabaila, Rasa
      When I was 13 years old, our primary school was lucky enough to be taken to the Paralympic Games. The most mesmerising event at the games for me was 'Goalball'. This sport was invented in 1946 in an effort to help in the rehabilitation of blind war veterans. In Goalball, participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it into the opponent's goal. Teams alternate throwing or rolling the ball from one end of the playing area to the other, and players remain in the area of their own goal in both defence and attack. Players must use the sound of the bell to judge the position and movement of the ball. Blindfolds allow partially sighted players to compete on an equal footing with blind players. I could never imagine trying to do anything blindfolded, so watching this game captivated me. After my exposure to the Paralympic Games, I took a huge interest in and developed an admiration for seeing the achievements of people who live with a disability. As a nurse, every day I see people with disabilities making the most of what they have, including a blind patient who plays the piano beautifully, and a paraplegic man who can move himself around the room on his own with the use of his superior upper body strength.

    • Abstract: Starr, Linda
      An important and often misunderstood concept in health care is privacy and confidentiality. All health practitioners have a legal and ethical duty to protect the confidentiality and privacy of their patients; a duty entrenched in federal, state and territory law as well as codes of ethics and professional conduct. However, protecting patient information can be a complex process, particularly when we consider how quickly technology has developed enabling us to gather increasing amounts of information about our patients. Correspondingly there has been an increase in the use of emails, mobile electronic devices, smart phones and electronic records to disseminate this information to a broader audience than the traditional paper patient record was capable of. It should come as no surprise then, that during this evolution consumers have become more aware of the risk to their privacy and are demanding greater protection of their personal information.

    • Abstract: Bryce, Julianne
      As I write this, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) 25th Quadrennial Congress is drawing to a close. Australia's ICN partners, the Australian College of Nursing and the Australian Nursing Federation, were proud to host this six day international event in Melbourne from 18 - 23 May 2013. It is the first time in over 50 years ICN Congress, the largest international nursing event, has been held in Australia.

    • Abstract: Chaperon, Yvonne
      Last month my sister and I took our nephew George (along with his mother) to his first AFL game to see his beloved Richmond play. It was George's 10th birthday and he lives in Hobart. So a trip to Melbourne was a big deal for him. The 'Tiges' lost but George had a wonderful time soaking up the atmosphere of the Richmond Cheer Squad and the roar at the MCG! The next day we headed to the May Day march. He did not know what the May Day March was for and was really enthralled when I explained it to him. I guess there are a lot of people who don't know this history so it prompted me to write about it for this month's column. May Day is the international day of celebration for organised labour. The day recalls the history of the 8 Hour Day movement and the bonds of trade unionism. May Day is also seen as a day to commemorate the spirit of international solidarity by joining millions of workers across the world united and engaged in political issues for working class families. May Day is also known as Labour Day.

    • Abstract: Jones, Sally-Anne
      Each May we collectively celebrate International Day of the Midwife and International Nurses' Day - the theme for which this year is Closing the Gap on the Millennium Development Goals. Nurses and midwives are well positioned in health service delivery to affect the outcomes on health and wellbeing of the entire population of Australia. The International Council of Nurses affirms that "nurses have an important role in achieving health equity and developing a clear understanding of how the health sector can act to reduce health inequities." For even though we are privileged to live in a country whose public health system delivers such a high standard of care, there are many in our society, not limited to the homeless, elderly or Indigenous, who continue to have difficulty accessing health care. Nurses and midwives have played a significant role in building our health system as custodians of patient safety and guardians of care.

  • Volume 20 Issue 10 - Is it all just in our hands'
    • Abstract: Roderick, Allison
      The simple answer is yes. As we have all read before, hand hygiene is absolutely linked to infection control and prevention. Hand hygiene is part of our everyday practice, backed by policy and supported by programs such as the National Hand Hygiene Initiatives.
