  • Being Dignified: The Lived Experience of Elderly Chinese Residents in a
           Private Nursing Home in Hong Kong

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Mar 2018
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  6  Number  1  Mimi M. H. Tiu   The concept of dignity is an essential value of nursing practice and its attributes frequently include control, respect and self-esteem. In Hong Kong, elderly people have negative impressions about living in private nursing homes because they perceive these attributes of dignity will be lost. This study aims to understand and gain a deeper insight of the lived experience of being dignified for elderly Chinese residents in a private nursing home in Hong Kong. This study employed an interpretative qualitative design. A purposive sampling strategy was used to recruit 14 nursing home residents to participate in this study. The data were collected through in-depth, unstructured face-to-face interviews. Interviews were audiotaped, transcribed, and then analysed using van Manen's phenomenological method of qualitative research. Five themes that emerged from this study were: possessing inherent dignity, owning dignified-self perspectives, endeavouring to exercise dignity-conserving practices, receiving dignified care, and dwelling in a dignified home environment. Outcomes identified in this study showed the different ways dignity is conceptualised by the residents in the nursing home. The results enhance our understanding of dignity among residents in private nursing homes and can contribute to the development of strategies for providing dignified care in future.

  • Uplifting Voices and Images of Research Participants: Issues in Video

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Mar 2018
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  6  Number  1  Kathryn Weaver   and Judith Spiers   Video technology is increasingly popular for disseminating research results because its multi-sensory avenues for communication provide richer information than is often available in printed reports. Despite this advantage, issues inherent in video-based dissemination research have not been well articulated in nursing literature. In this article, issues of power, representation, participant autonomy, confidentiality, informed consent, intellectual property, and commercial use and profits are described and critically analyzed. The discussion is contextualized with examples from two original qualitative research projects involving women recovering from eating disorders and adolescents living with diabetes. Recommendations for future video research include giving as much control as possible to participants through negotiation of consent, confidentiality, and copyright ownership issues on an on-going case by case basis.

  • Does Compassion Fatigue Affect Nurse Educators in Practice'

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Mar 2017
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  5  Number  1  Nida Mullins   and Laura McQueen   Compassion fatigue is an unrecognized and understudied phenomenon that occurs in practicing nurses and most likely to affect nurse educators in practice. This unique form of burnout can impede nurse educators in caring for themselves and their students, patients, colleagues, schools and healthcare agencies. It is important to recognize the outcomes and implications of compassion fatigue and the growing need to mentor and care for both current and future nurse educators. Further research studies are needed on compassion fatigue in nurse educators to minimize the impact on educator health and professional nursing care.

  • Screening in Psycho-oncology---Need for Psycho-oncological and
           Psycho-social Care of Oncological Patients: A Pilot Survey Using the
           Hornheider Questionnaire

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Mar 2017
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  5  Number  1  Petra Sumnitsch   Bernd L. Hartmann   Daniela Zanolin   Christoph H. Saely   and Alois Lang   Aim/object: The aim of this survey was to identify psycho-oncological and psycho-social need in the routine patient care of oncological patients. Material and Methods: A total of 200 oncological patients underwent the paper-based Hornheider questionnaire, a validated instrument to identify the need of psycho-oncological and psycho-social care at first contact. Hornheider sum-scores ≥4 were considered to indicate psycho-oncological and psycho-social need. Results: Overall, 149 (75%; 68 women and 81 men, 74 ≥ 65 and 75 < 65 years) questionnaires were correctly filled out and returned. Hornheider sum-scores were ≥4 in 47 patients, i.e. in 31,7%. Psycho-oncological and psycho-social need did not differ significantly between women and men (57,5% vs. 42,5%; p=0,732) but was significantly higher in patients

  • Assessment of Hypertensive Patients' Illness Experience Using
           Patient-centred Consultation among Patients Seen in an Urban
           Family-practice Setting in Nigeria

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Mar 2017
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  5  Number  1  Promise E. Adat   Ndifreke E. Udonwa   Abraham N. Gyuse   and Chibuike M. Okeke   Objectives: The study aimed at determining the hypertensive patients' illness experience, using the patient-centred consultation approach in order to form a better partnership with the patients. Design: This was a cross-sectional hospital-based study using a semi-structured questionnaire that assessed the socio-demographic characteristics of the respondents. The respondents' fears about hypertension, ideas about its cause and expectations from consultation were explored. The response was based on a Likert scale. The data were analysed with the SPSS software version 15. Settings: This study was conducted at the GOPC, UCTH Calabar. The GOPC is the "window" of the Hospital. Subjects/participants: Two hundred and sixty eight hypertensive patients were recruited into the study. Results and Conclusions: The respondents expressed fear regarding most aspect of hypertension. Most (74.7%) agreed that hypertension could be caused by stress. A few participants gave non-biomedical views of the aetiology of hypertension, including attributing it to spiritual forces. Over three quarters of respondents (85.1%), expected their medications to give them corrective measures to hypertension. The study supports the fact that hypertensive patients have varying illness experiences that should be explored using the patient-centred consultation style and recommends that doctors should manage individual patients to suit the patients' unique experience. There was an established significant relationship between expectation and fears/ideas.

  • Questionnaire for Assessment of Clinical Supervision Strategies in
           Nursing: Construction and Validation of the Qacssn

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Aug 2017
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  5  Number  2  Inês Rocha   Margarida Reis Santos   and Regina Pires   Purpose: The purpose of the study was to construct and validate a questionnaire that assesses the frequency with which the Clinical Supervision (CS) strategies are implemented and the frequency with which the nurses want them to be implemented in their services. Design: The research is carried out under a quantitative paradigm, of the descriptive and exploratory type, and of a transversal nature. The non-probabilistic sample comprised 273 nurses. The data was collected by applying the Questionnaire for Assessment of Clinical Supervision Strategies in Nursing (QACSSN), between May and September 2012. Methods: A descriptive statistical analysis was made of the data obtained. The content collected from the QACSSN was validated by a group of 11 experts. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was also ascertained. Findings: The results show the experts agree with the inclusion of the 16 CS strategies in the QACSSN. The QACSSN has good internal consistency indices, both in terms of the frequency of implementation of the CS strategies and concerning the level of desire for their implementation. Conclusions: The QACSSN is a reliable instrument with valid content, and therefore can be used in the context of Mentorship, Preceptorship or CS. Clinical Relevance: The study contributes to improved quality of care by identifying the most appropriate CS strategies for the process of supervision in health contexts, enabling the nurses to play an active role in this process.

  • Assessment of Post-traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) among Saudi Mothers
           Having a Child Newly Diagnosed with Cancer

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Aug 2017
      Source:Nursing and Health  Volume  5  Number  2  Amal Ibrahim Khalil   Mawdah Hasan Alshanqiti   and Amani Homeed AlHarbi   Background: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder strike people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. Parents' of children with cancer are at risk of PTSD. The aim of the study is to assess the posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms among Saudi mothers who have a child newly diagnosed with cancer. Methodology: A descriptive exploratory design was used with a convenient sample of 110 Saudi mothers. Mothers were recruited from pediatric oncology (Ward 11) at King Khalid National Guard Hospital (KKNGH), Jeddah. Mothers completed a questionnaire of self-report PTSD Checklist (PCL-C) The PTSD severity was determined by totaling the 20 PDS-5 as the higher the score the more the severity of PTSD. Results: the results revealed that the mean age of children and mothers was (4.43±SD3.6) and (37.6±SD9.3) respectively. More than half(57.2%) of mothers experienced with shock at the time of diagnosis. More than one-third (32.7%) meet the criteria of PTSD and severity of symptoms ranged from mild to very severe as (44.5%) have mild symptoms (14.5%), moderate (17.3%) severe compared by (6.4) experienced very severe symptoms of PTSD. Furthermore, there was a significant correlation between the severity of PTSD with the number of children, the age of parents, gender, literacy and economic state (P = 0.001). Conclusion and recommendation: the study concluded the presence of PTSD symptoms among participants of the current study. Additionally, factors such as age, sex, the number of children, educational state and economic state of the family can influence the severity of PTSD. Therefore, health professionals might screen the parents of children with chronic illnesses to ascertain whether they could benefit from stress management. By the same token, clinicians should recognize that most parents tend to cope well through reinforcing their adaptive coping skills.
