  • Emotions and Experience of Fathers applying Kangaroo Care in the Eastern
           Anatolia Region of Turkey: A Qualitative Study
    • Authors: Ulviye Günay, Didem Coşkun Şimşek
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to investigate the emotions and experiences of fathers in Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey who applied kangaroo care in the neonatal intensive care unit. This study applied the qualitative descriptive design. The study included 12 fathers at the NICU of a university hospital. The fathers practiced kangaroo care with their babies two times a day for 15 days. Content analysis was then conducted to determine the main themes and sub-themes of the interviews. Three main themes and six sub-themes emerged from the analysis: (1) Emotions of being a father (feeling that the baby belongs to own and feeling the warmth and scent of the baby); (2) Confidence in fathering roles (self-confidence and caring for the baby); and (3) Happiness in the new parent role (seeing the baby calm down, hugging the baby and touching the baby’s skin).

  • Concerns of Parental HIV Disclosure in China
    • Authors: Meiyan Sun, Wei-Ti Chen, Joyce P. Yang, Shuyuan Huang, Lin Zhang, Mingfeng Shi, Wei Li, Ye Li, Meijuan Bao, Hongzhou Lu
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Although parental HIV disclosure has benefits for parents and children, the disclosure rate among parents remains low. This study aims to qualitatively examine parental concerns regarding disclosure of their HIV status to their children. Eighty parents were enrolled in a randomized controlled trial of a three-session disclosure-support intervention, with forty receiving the intervention and forty receiving treatment as usual. Intervention sessions were audio recorded, and transcriptions were qualitatively coded for content related to concerns of disclosure. Four themes emerged: Intention to disclose, disclosure approach, indicators for disclosure, and fears about disclosure. These themes reveal struggles that parents experience when considering HIV disclosure suggesting that an effective disclosure intervention must help parents assess pros and cons, discuss the emotions of the children after the disclosure, and monitor the impact on children’s lives after disclosure over time. Future research is needed to implement interventions supporting HIV-positive parents’ disclosure decision-making and actions.

  • How Counseling Based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Supported
           with Motivational Interviewing Affects Levels of Functional Recovery in
           Patients Diagnosed with Schizophrenia: A Quasi-Experimental Study
    • Authors: Erman Yıldız, Rukuye Aylaz
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study aimed to determine how counseling based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and supported with motivational interviewing (MIs) affected functional recovery in individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia (IDSs). A quasi-experimental design was used. The participants of this study were 87 individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia (36 in the experimental group and 51 in the control group). The experimental group received counseling based on ACT and supported with MIs. The data were collected between September 2018 and May 2019 using a Descriptive Information Form and the Functional Remission of General Schizophrenia Scale (FROGS). The participants in the experimental group were given a group counseling program of eight sessions at community mental health centers in downtown Malatya, Turkey. The results revealed a statistically significant difference in the mean scores on FROGS between those in the IDS experimental group and those in the control group. The scores increased on both groups.

  • Symptom Clusters’ Content, Stability and Correlation with the Quality of
           Life in a Heterogeneous Group of Cancer Patients: A Large-Scale
           Longitudinal Study
    • Authors: Mohammad Al Qadire, Omar Shamieh, Sameer Abdullah, Faisal Albadainah
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Cancer-related symptoms can negatively affect the quality of life, hinder or delay treatment, and increase suffering. This study aimed to explore symptom clusters among Jordanian cancer patients. A longitudinal survey design was used. The sample consisted of 1280 cancer patients treated in three selected hospitals. Two-thirds of the participants were female (63.5%) with a mean age of 52.7 SD 13.8 years and 40.3% had breast cancer. Five clusters were identified, the first was the psychological cluster of eight symptoms; the second was the treatment side-effects cluster consisting of ten symptoms; the third was the nausea and vomiting cluster comprising four symptoms; the fourth was the pain cluster comprising four symptoms; and last was the fatigue cluster, with three symptoms. Cancer patients through the journey of cancer treatment have several symptoms that tend to occur in five clusters which are negatively correlated with their quality of life.

  • Clinical and Socio-demographic Determinants of Self-care Maintenance,
           Monitoring and Management in US Adults with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
    • Authors: Michela Luciani, Emanuela Rossi, Paola Rebora, Michael Stawnychy, Davide Ausili, Barbara Riegel
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The aims of this study were to describe self-care in US T2DM patients and to identify clinical and sociodemographic determinants of self-care maintenance, monitoring, and management in US T2DM patients. A secondary analysis was performed using data from a cross-sectional study done to test the psychometric performance of the Self-Care of Diabetes Inventory in US English speaking adults with diabetes. In our sample (n = 207), self-care maintenance was adequately performed (median = 75), self-care monitoring was borderline (median = 67.6) and self-care management was poor (median = 55.6). Low income (p = .0019) and low self-care confidence (p < .0001) were associated with relatively lower self-care maintenance. Not taking insulin (p = .0153) and low self-care confidence (p < .0001) were associated with relatively low self-care monitoring. Low self-care confidence (p < .0001) was associated with low self-care management. Self-care confidence is a strong determinant of self-care. Interventions designed to improve self-care confidence are urgently needed.

  • Social Support for Arab People with Chronic Conditions: A Scoping Review
    • Authors: Ibrahim Alananzeh, Heidi Lord, Ritin Fernandez
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Social support can play a crucial role in psycho-social well-being of people with chronic conditions. There is limited information about the experiences, barriers and sources of social support of Arab people affected by chronic conditions. The purpose of this review is to explore the experiences, barriers and sources of social support of Arab people affected by chronic conditions. A scoping review of the literature, based on Preferred Reporting Items for Scoping Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. Articles (n = 13) were identified for appraisal based on a group of inclusion and exclusion criteria. Eight articles were included in the final analysis. Three broad themes were identified: (a) Social support benefits—physical, emotional and financial benefits; (b) Source of social support—family and friends support, and (c) Support services utilization—cultural barrier, Arab migrants language and unfamiliarity with the health system barriers. Appropriate future support programs should be tailored based on Arab cultural beliefs and the inherent responsibility of the family together inside the Arab community.

  • Predictors of Quality of Life in Young Adults Diagnosed With Cancer
    • Authors: Charmaine A. McKie, Adeyinka O. Laiyemo
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      A cross-section correlational study was conducted to evaluate the overall quality of life in young adults (AYAs) diagnosed with cancer, and the impact of health-related and non-health-related factors on their quality of life. Fifty-six AYA cancer survivors were recruited to elicit the impact of biological function (cancer type and comorbidity), symptoms, functional status, general perception of health status, gender, and characteristics of the environment on quality of life. Participants experienced higher than average quality of life. Symptoms, functional status, and general perception of health status were significant predictors of quality of life in this group of AYAs diagnosed with cancer. In delivering quality cancer care, nurses must be able to thoroughly assess symptom status, AYA cancer survivors’ perception of their health status, and functioning in order to implement supportive measures to help improve their quality of life.

  • Transplant-related Symptom Clusters in Renal Transplant Recipients
    • Authors: Chun-Yan Du, Si-Si Wu, Ying-Xin Fu, Han Wang, Jie Zhao, Hong-Xia Liu
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Renal transplant recipients experience multiple symptoms, but complex relationships among these symptoms remain poorly understood. To explore the existence of symptom clusters in renal transplant recipients. A total of 295 renal transplant recipients were recruited in a hospital in Tianjin from October 2017 to January 2018. The participants completed the symptom questionnaire that assessed three symptom dimensions of 62 symptoms. Exploratory factor analysis was performed to identify symptom clusters. Five symptom clusters were extracted through exploratory factor analysis: emotional-sleep symptom cluster, pain-gastrointestinal symptom cluster, immune-related symptom cluster, lack of energy symptom cluster, and visual dysfunction symptom cluster, which explained 50.53% of the variance of symptom experience. Renal transplant recipients experienced a complex series of symptoms, and some symptoms related to one another formed a symptom cluster. Adopting a symptom cluster approach has the potential to remarkably enhance symptom assessment and nursing care for renal transplant recipients.

  • Investigating the Effect of a Structured Discharge Training Program on
           Patient Outcomes Following Gynecologic Oncology Surgery
    • Authors: Ilkay Culha, Elif Gursoy, Hulya Bulut
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study aimed to investigate the effect of a discharge training program structured according to the Roy adaptation model (RAM) on patient outcomes (quality of life, coping-adaptation, self-esteem) following gynecologic oncology surgery. This nonrandomized intervention studies consisted of two stages. In the first stage, patients were interviewed, patient needs after discharges were determined. Interview data were analyzed, and RAM-based training booklet was prepared. This booklet was prepared in line with a number of themes. In the second stage, the study was conducted with a sample of 36 control and 36 intervention patients, who were included in the discharge training program. Data was collected preoperatively, at 9th and 13th weeks after discharge. The mean quality of life and coping/adaptation scores of the intervention group at 13th weeks were significantly higher than those of the control group, however, no significant difference was found between the groups in terms of mean self-esteem scores.

  • The Perceived Marital Intimacy of Spouses Directly Influences the
           Rehabilitation Motivation of Hospitalized Stroke Survivors
    • Authors: Kil Je Moon, Misook L. Chung, Seon Young Hwang
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Spousal support is likely to influence the rehabilitation motivation of stroke survivors who require long-term rehabilitation. This study was conducted to examine the reciprocal effects of the depressive symptoms and marital intimacy of stroke survivors and their spouses, and identify the factors that influence the rehabilitation motivation of stroke survivors. For this cross-sectional descriptive study, 72 stroke survivor-spouse couples were recruited from four rehabilitation hospitals in South Korea in 2017. The collected data were analyzed using path analyses with SPSS 20.0 and the R package. There were significant differences in the actor effects of stroke survivors’ and spouses’ depressive symptoms on the marital intimacy of the survivors and their spouses. The perceived marital intimacy of spouses was significantly associated with the rehabilitation motivation of stroke survivors. In order to enhance their rehabilitation motivation, it is necessary to periodically assess the depressive symptoms and perceived marital intimacy of their spouses.

           Subsequent Diagnosis of Concussion
    • Authors: Catherine C. McDonald, Melissa R. Pfeiffer, Roni L. Robinson, Kristy B. Arbogast, Christina L. Master
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Head injuries in childhood can result in concussion. Families of a child with a head injury often seek medical advice through telephone triage call systems. It is important to understand if patients follow telephone triage recommendations and what proportion of triage calls result in subsequent concussion diagnosis. We used a one-year retrospective cohort of triage calls screened with the Barton Schmitt Pediatric Head Injury Telephone Triage Protocol. The objectives were to estimate the proportion who followed up with urgent recommendations to see a provider and determine prevalence of diagnoses of concussion. Out of 2,454 calls with recommendations to be seen urgently, the estimated proportion of being seen in the medical home network or an outside health care facility was 84.1%. Estimated overall diagnoses of concussion among those who were seen was 39.5%. These data can be used to improve patient education and follow-up, as well as the utility of the telephone triage system.

  • Challenges Experienced by Family Caregivers of the Adult Intensive Care
           Unit Patients in Korea: An Integrative Review
    • Authors: JiYeon Choi, Judith A. Tate, Youn-Jung Son
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Consistent with global trends, population aging in South Korea is necessitating increasing admissions to intensive care units (ICU). This integrative review describes the challenges experienced by family caregivers of ICU patients in South Korea and evaluates relevant intervention studies. Using Whittemore and Knafl’s methods, we identify and synthesize findings from 20 (14 descriptive and 6 experimental design) articles and evaluate study quality. South Korean ICU family caregivers reported challenges such as feelings of powerlessness and vulnerability, difficulty in maintaining their own health and well-being, and mixed feelings regarding patients’ transition to the general ward. Intervention studies, which were based on quasi-experimental design, examined modified visiting hours, information provision strategies, nurse-led transitional care programs, and educational support. Findings highlight the current state of the science in this topic area in South Korea. Future studies should use more robust methods, such as longitudinal cohort studies and randomized controlled trials.

           and Follow-Up on Improving Exercise Behavior and Metabolic Control in
           Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
    • Authors: Emine Kaplan Serin, Seyhan Citlik Saritas
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to determine the effects of transtheoretical model-based walking exercise training and follow-up on improving exercise behavior and metabolic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. This randomized controlled trial was conducted as a pre-test and post-test experimental model with 76 intervention and 76 control individuals. The intervention group received the transtheoretical model-based exercise training. Data were collected using patient identification form, transtheoretical model scales, pedometer and metabolic outcomes. Data were analyzed by Chi square, two-way ANOVA, Mauchly’s, Greenhouse-Geisser, Friedman, and McNamer test. The overall score means for the exercise change processes, decision-making balance and self-efficacy scales increased compared to the pre-test (p < .001). The mean HDL increased from 41.39 ± 10.35 to 49.18 ± 11.58, and average number of steps per day increased from 3264.31 ± 1933.03 to 5639.37 ± 2317.01. Consequently, this difference between the groups was significant (p < .05).

  • Social Determinants of Health and Health Care Delivery: African American
           Women’s T2DM Self-Management
    • Authors: Judith M. Ochieng, Janice D. Crist
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      African American (AA) women have high prevalence of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and complications. No studies have been conducted about how social determinants of health and health care delivery affect their T2DM self-management. The purpose was to describe how social determinants of health and healthcare delivery may influence AA women’s T2DM self-management using qualitative descriptive methodology (N = 10). Ten participants were interviewed. Participants’ geographical location, education, level of income, health literacy, and systemic racism, that is, healthcare delivery services, for example, inadequate healthcare services, providers’ assumptions about the patient’s knowledge of diabetes, providers’ attitudes toward patients, and stigma related to diabetes as a disease were identified. Understanding the role of social determinants of health and the health care delivery system in influencing T2DM self-management is a powerful tool for providers and practitioners for improving practice and health care policies to decrease health disparities and improve health outcomes among AA women with T2DM.

  • Effects of Antenatal Education on Fear of Birth, Depression, Anxiety,
           Childbirth Self-Efficacy, and Mode of Delivery in Primiparous Pregnant
           Women: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Study
    • Authors: Seyhan Çankaya, Bülent Şimşek
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of antenatal education on birth fear, depression, anxiety, stress, childbirth self-efficacy, and mode of delivery in primiparous pregnant women. This is a single-blind, prospective, randomized controlled trial, in which we applied the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement. The study was conducted in a city in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region, and the data collection process was made between April and September 2019. One hundred and twenty primiparous pregnant women were assigned to either the antenatal education group (n = 60) or the control group (n = 60) via randomized block assignment. A total of 112 women were evaluated at the end of the study. Pregnant women in the antenatal education group were given two 2-hr sessions (240 min) twice a week for 4 weeks. It was found that those in the antenatal education group had less birth fear, depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms and increased childbirth self-efficacy compared to controls (p

  • Does Adequate Hemodialysis Prevent Symptoms': A National
           Cross-Sectional Survey
    • Authors: Nurten Ozen, Tugba Cepken, Clemente Neves Sousa
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between dialysis adequacy and the incidence of symptoms in subjects treated with HD. This descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted at two HD centers. The data were collected with the ‘Descriptive Characteristics Form of the Participants’ and the ‘Dialysis Symptom Index (DSI)’. The study was reported according to the STROBE Declaration. The study was completed with 120 patients. The most common symptom reported was feeling tired or decreased energy and the least common was difficulty concentrating. No statistically significant relationship was found between DSI results and the Kt/V or urea reduction rate levels used to evaluate dialysis adequacy. Dialysis-related symptoms can also be seen in patients with adequate dialysis levels. It is therefore necessary to query the symptoms experienced by the patients at regular intervals.

  • Relationships among Self-Care Competency, Presence of Depressive Symptom,
           and Health-Related Quality of Life of Korean Stroke Patients
    • Authors: Sohyune R. Sok, Eunji Yim, Hyebeen Sim, Hyun Jin Sim
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study was to examine the self-care competency, the presence of depressive symptom, and health-related quality of life and to evaluate the correlation of these measures among 146 stroke patients in South Korea. The analyses showed that mean score of self-care competency indicates a slightly lower level of self-care competency. There showed lower levels of self-care competency in patients with no occupation, hemorrhage or infarction stroke type, both attack area and with risk-factors or other diseases such as hypertension and/or diabetes. Self-care competency had a significant, negative relation with presence of depressive symptom, while self-care competency had a significant, positive relation with health-related quality of life. In the nursing practice, nurses need to pay attention self-care competency and the related factors for better qualitive care of stroke patients. Concrete interventions and strategies to improve the self-care competency of stroke patients are needed.

  • Bedrails and Falls in Nursing Homes: A Systematic Review
    • Authors: David Huynh, Olivia N. Lee, Phuong M. An, Twyla A. Ens, Cynthia A. Mannion
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Bedrail use for fall prevention in elderly clients (>65 years) is controversial. Some healthcare providers believe bedrails prevent falls, while others think they are ineffective and dangerous. A systematic review was conducted to address: “For older adults living in nursing homes, does more or less bedrail use reduce the incidence of falls'” We searched HealthStar, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Academic Search complete ProQuest and Canadian Health Research Collection using “elder*,” “bedrail*,” “fall*,” and “assisted-living*.” After filtering for primary data, English records, older adult population, relationship between bedrails and falls, fourteen studies remained. Results suggest using alternative fall prevention measures, and bedrails are either beneficial, harmful, or do not influence falls. Bedrail reduction with fall prevention interventions led to no changes in fall frequency. Ambiguity persists regarding fall frequencies and bedrail use without using other fall prevention strategies. Educating health care providers on fall prevention is key to patient safety.

  • The Relationship between Physical Activity Levels and Functional Capacity
           in Patients with Advanced Chronic Kidney Disease
    • Authors: Anna Junqué Jiménez, Vicent Esteve Simó, Lola Andreu Periz, Eva Segura Ortí
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study is to assess whether the functional capacity of patients with chronic kidney disease stage V (CKD-5D) is different depending on their physical activity levels. We also compared functional capacity, quality of life, and symptoms of depression depending on treatment modalities (HD vs. PD). A Cross-sectional study included 52 patients (35HD and 17PD; males 61.5%, mean age 71 years). The main measurements were physical activity level using the Human Activity Profile questionnaire (HAP), muscle strength, functional capacity, health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and depressive symptomatology. The functional tests and physical activity levels correlated significantly. Participants on HD with low physical activity levels were older (*p ≤ .039) and had worst physical function (*p ≤ .01). The HAP is a useful tool to detect subjects with low functional capacity; there were no differences between the therapy modalities in terms of functional capacity, HRQoL, or depressive symptomatology.

    • Authors: Lori A. Spies, Joyce M. Mulenga
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Hypertension is the most significant contributor to premature death globally. As embedded providers, nurses have valuable insight on how to improve hypertension outcomes. A sequential mixed-method study was conducted in Zambia to explore provider perceptions of hypertension care and develop contextually relevant education for nurses. The Zambian and US nurse researchers interviewed 15 nurses and provided a hypertension education workshop. Thematic evaluation identified categories of infrastructure and belief & behaviors with a shared subcategory of medication. A statistically significant result was found in the health care providers knowledge and attitude toward hypertension, one of two pre and post-tests analysis (z = –2.17, p

    • Authors: Seung Hee Lee, Chul-Gyu Kim, Hye Sook Han, Jihyun Kwon, So Youen Roh, Beom Jin Shin
      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose is to determine the effect of video-based information provision using a smart pad on uncertainty, anxiety, physiological parameters, pain, and educational satisfaction among patients hospitalized for a bone marrow biopsy. This study was done with a pre-/posttest nonequivalent control group design. The subjects were 65 patients in the hematology-oncology ward of a university hospital in Cheongju, South Korea, who underwent a bone marrow biopsy between August 2017 and May 2018. Thirty volunteers were allocated to the control group and 35 volunteers to the intervention group. The experimental group showed significantly lower uncertainty and significantly greater satisfaction with education than did the control group. No significant difference was observed in anxiety, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse, and pain. Video-based information provision using a smart pad was effective for lowering uncertainty among patients receiving a bone marrow biopsy, as well as for boosting their sense of educational satisfaction.

      Background:Patient education requires modification as it is either nonexistent or implemented irregularly or inadequately.Study’s purpose:To examine the learning needs of patients with coronary heart disease from the perspective of the patients, their relatives, and health care providers.Methodology:The cross-sectional, comparative study conducted at two cardiac hospitals of Tabriz and Ardebil, Iran from May 2016 to September 2016.Through convenience sampling perceptions of 137 patients, 137 relatives, 33 cardiologists, and 108 nurses were compared using the Cardiac Learning Need Inventory questionnaire.Major results:The most important learning needs of patients from the perspective of physicians, nurses, and patients’ relatives was information about risk factors. In contrast, patient’s perceived information about medication to be their most important learning need.Clinical implications:Patients’ perceptions of their educational needs was different from the perceptions of physicians, nurses, and relatives of the patients. Therefore, when planning patient education a comprehensive review of the patients’ learning needs is required in order to develop a suitable education plan by prioritizing patients’ educational needs.

      Abstract: Clinical Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      The complicated situation experienced by chronic heart failure (CHF) patients affects their entire well-being but clinical practice continues to fail to adequately respond to their demands. The aim of this study was to understand the meaning of living with CHF from the patient’s perspective. A hermeneutic phenomenological study was conducted according to Van Manen’s phenomenology of practice method. Individual conversational interviews were held with 20 outpatients with CHF. Six main themes emerged from the analysis: (1) Living with CHF involves a profound change in the person; (2) The person living with CHF has to accept their situation; (3) The person with CHF needs to feel that their life is normal and demonstrate it to others; (4) The person with CHF needs to have hope; (5) Having CHF makes the person continuously aware of the possibility of dying; (6) The person with CHF feels that it negatively influences their close environment.
