  • Providing Telephone-Based Support for Patients With Haematological
           Malignancies: A Qualitative Investigation of Expert Nurses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sarah J. Liptrott, Penny Bee, Karina Lovell
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundTelephone-based interventions are frequently used to address cancer patient’s needs, often delivered by nurses; however, little is known about nurses’ opinions of such interventions.PurposeThe objective of this study was to investigate expert nurses’ perceptions of hemato-oncology patient’s needs, use of telephone interventions providing support and symptom management and intervention acceptability from a service provider perspective. A qualitative study was undertaken with focus group and individual interview. Inductive and deductive data analysis was performed using Framework Analysis and the Theoretical Framework of Acceptability.ResultsTwo themes emerged: (1) perceived needs of haemato-oncology patients across the cancer trajectory – multifactorial influences, dynamic information needs, and continuity of care, (2) acceptability for nurses delivering interventions was determined by identification of need, agreed expectations and organisational support for the intervention.ConclusionsGreater understanding of contextual factors for recipients and individuals delivering healthcare interventions may contribute to identification of potential barriers and facilitators to adoption in clinical practice.

      Authors: Stephanie Pedrotti Lucchese, Susan Bishop, Sepali Guruge, Margareth Santos Zanchetta, Diane Pirner
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Study BackgroundThe aging population in Canada has been increasing steadily over the past 40 years, however, there is limited information about the meaning of aging well amongst older Brazilian women in Canada.MethodsA Heideggerian interpretive phenomenology study was conducted to understand the meaning of aging well amongst older Brazilian women in the post-migration context living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in Ontario, Canada.ResultsEight older Brazilian women residing in the GTA were recruited through purposive and snowball sampling and participated in individual face-to-face interviews. Through data analysis and the incorporation of Heidegger’s four existentials of human existence, the themes that emerged were (a) Embracing being part of a mosaic, (b) Aging with grace, (c) Chasing your dreams and (d) Being a bridge and not a fence. The overarching theme was: Finding the silver lining: Aging well.ConclusionThis study informs nursing practice, research and policy development to advance the health of older immigrant adults in Canada.

      Authors: Cheryl Forchuk, Gordon Russell, Jan Richardson, Chantele Perreault, Heba Hassan, Bryanna Lucyk, Sebastian Gyamfi
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundCanada, a key player in global humanitarian affairs is faced with enormous challenges in relation to housing and homelessness. As international migration continues to occur, homelessness among immigrant families is increasing worldwide; a situation that needs urgent attention and action.PurposeWe designed this study to explore the needs of homeless families, identify risk factors associated with family homelessness, and to find strategies that could assist in mitigating and preventing homelessness among families in Canada.MethodsThis paper reports qualitative findings from a focused ethnographic study embedded in participatory action research that explored the experiences of 11 immigrant families with housing challenges in Ontario Canada.ResultsThematic analysis yielded five (5) major themes: life challenges; lack of understanding of the system; difficulty with conflict resolution; escaping as a solution for hardship; and reducing immigrant family homelessness.ConclusionFindings from the study highlight the urgent need for advocacy and a well-tailored supportive housing policy to address family homelessness in Ontario.

           Internationally Educated Nurses: A Participatory Action Research Project

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lydia Lorna Belita, Patricia Ann Ford
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundMultiple challenges impede the Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) professional development and success in writing the registration examination. This paper aims to explore these challenges and describes the educational program which adopts a tailored mentoring approach to facilitate their successful completion of the registration exam.Methodology: Participatory Action Research model informed the development and revision of the educational process. For this qualitative study, individual 1:1 audiotaped and telephone interviews were conducted among the initial participants to explore their experiences in the program.ResultsFindings from this study provided more insights as to participants’ success in passing registration examination and enhanced performance in their clinical practices. From the thematic analysis, we interpreted the IEN’s journey in their knowledge transition into four major themes: Acknowledging the barriers, Learning the new culture, Making progress, Transitioning into power.ConclusionThis project demonstrated that the integration of a strong mentor-mentee relationship that gives voice to the participants’ learning experience so as to meet their knowledge gaps, engenders a deeper understanding of Canadian professional nursing practice, positions them for success in writing the registration examination and builds a sense of empowerment among them.

  • Correctional nursing in Canada’s Prairie provinces: Roles,
           responsibilities, and learning needs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Phil Woods, Cindy Peternelj-Taylor
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundNurses represent the largest group of health care professionals working with incarcerated persons, yet there is limited understanding of their learning needs, or their roles and responsibilities; and what is known is poorly disseminated.PurposeThe goal of this research was to describe the roles, responsibilities, and learning needs of correctional nurses practicing in provincial correctional facilities in Alberta and Manitoba, and to add these data to the existing data set from Saskatchewan.MethodsThree hundred and forty nurses working in provincial correctional facilities in western Canada were invited to complete a self-administered online survey consisting of a Learning Needs Assessment questionnaire (demographic information, knowledge and learning needs, and professional development); and the Staff Questionnaire (which targeted specific skill sets relevant to clinical practice in secure environments). Eighty-two nurses completed the online survey (overall response rate 24%).ResultsOverall, those who participated were experienced in nursing and correctional nursing. The learning needs they identified aligned with their correctional nursing roles and unique practice settings. In particular, issues related to the care of incarcerated persons with mental health disorders and related care were paramount (self-harming behaviours, suicide, mental health assessments in general). In response to the five comprehensive skill sets assessed in the Staff Questionnaire, respondents rated their involvement and importance of the individual skills as important to varying degrees.ConclusionsThe results of this survey shed light on contemporary developments in correctional nursing within provincial correctional facilities in western Canada and provide a foundation for continuing professional education and development, practice, and future research initiatives.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundOpioid use has escalated dramatically resulting in an increase in deaths. Access to treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD) is poor. The addition of nurse practitioners (NPs) as prescribers of methadone for OUD offers potential for improving access. Little is known about what support NPs will require as they prescribe methadone.PurposeThis paper identifies facilitators and barriers to NPs prescribing methadone.MethodsIn this qualitative study, in-person and phone semi-structured interviews were conducted with 18 participants. Participants included NPs (n=5), physicians (n=5), and stakeholders including members of professional regulatory bodies and government, academics and other clinicians (n=8). Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed using thematic analysis and software (NVivo 12.4.0) for data management.ResultsFour themes emerged: 1) Pervasive Barrier of Stigma; 2) Perceived Complexity of Patients Living with OUD; 3) NP Education and Practice Supports and; 4) Health Care Context and NP Role Implementation.ConclusionsBarriers and facilitators to NP prescribing are similar to those encountered by physicians. Factors unique to NPs include the identification of role clarity as a facilitator and navigation of physician networks as a barrier. Research conducted with current NP methadone prescribers is required to evaluate implementation of this service.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      Recruitment of a sufficient number of healthcare providers (HCPs), such as nurses and nurse practitioners (NPs), as participants is essential to generate high quality research to address issues significant for clinical practice. Often the recruitment process reported in research studies is very brief and does not capture the reality of the challenges of obtaining an adequate sample. This manuscript describes the challenges that we experienced in trying to recruit a sufficient number of HCPs, specifically NPs, into a randomized controlled trial. Based on our experience, as well as a review of the literature on recruiting HCPs, we share recommendations for researchers trying to recruit busy professionals as participants. Key findings were not just about reaching the target participants, but actually using strategies to stimulate their interest and persuading them to be involved from the beginning. Important things to consider for successful recruitment are making an effort to meet with professionals face-to-face and building relationships with administrators and other staff within organizations. Other lessons learned were to ensure to allot extra time for recruitment to allow for unanticipated challenges and to utilize multimodal strategies simultaneously to ensure a more timely execution of the recruitment process.

      Authors: Heather Nelson, Natasha Hubbard Murdoch, Kasandra Norman
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundThe novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has spread quickly to all corners of the globe and caused high rates of morbidity and mortality. Nurses have been at the centre of this experience managing the outbreak through direct bedside care, managing hospital units, providing Covid-19 testing, and contact tracing.PurposeThe aim of this article is to examine the role that nurses played in the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic through the voices of the participants.MethodsUsing a phenomenological methodology thirty-one interviews were completed via phone and thematic analysis was completed.ResultsThe major themes that emerged from this phenomenological study were: emotional challenges, uncertainty, and protective factors. Emotional challenges included, stress, anxiety, exhaustion, frustration, guilt, and loneliness. These challenges were magnified by uncertainty through leadership and communication challenges, needs of the pandemic versus needs of the patient, and Covid-19 and best practice. In this study, emotional challenges were mitigated by the protective factors of: education, ability to contribute, team cohesiveness, and community support.ConclusionsNurses are challenged during this time but by limiting uncertainty and providing protective factors, nurses can be less affected by emotional challenges and able to provide nursing care and manage the outbreak effectively.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundThe long-term success of cardiac rehabilitation programs rests in part on the patient’s ability to maintain health behaviors, which is influence by the patient education received. Therefore, a short and reliable tool to assess patients' knowledge is warranted. The aim of this study was to translate, culturally-adapt and psychometrically validate the French-Canadian version of the Coronary Artery Disease Education Questionnaire Short Version (CADE-Q SV).MethodsThe French CADE-Q SV – translated and culturally-adapted - was reviewed by 3 bilingual experts in cardiovascular disease. This version was then psychometrically tested in 115 CR patients in two Canadian provinces (Québec and New Brunswick). The questionnaire was completed at patients’ first CR session and in the end of their 6-month program to assess interpretability. The internal consistency was assessed using Kuder-Richardson-20 (KR-20) and Cronbach's alpha, factor structure using confirmatory factor analysis, and criterion validity regarding level of education and family income.ResultsKR-20 was 0.72. Factor analysis revealed 5 factors, all internally consistent. Criterion validity was supported by significant differences in total scores by educational level and family income (p

  • Sexual and Reproductive Health Outcomes among Incarcerated Women in
           Canada: A Scoping Review

      Authors: Martha Paynter, Clare Heggie, Shelley McKibbon, Ruth Martin-Misener, Adelina Iftene, Gail Tomblin Murphy
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundWomen are the fastest growing population in Canadian prisons. Incarceration can limit access to essential health services, increase health risks and disrupt treatment and supports. Despite legal requirements to provide care at professionally accepted standards, evidence suggests imprisonment undermines sexual and reproductive health. This scoping review asks, “What is known about the sexual and reproductive health of people incarcerated in prisons for women in Canada'”MethodsWe use the Joanna Briggs Institute methodology for systematic scoping reviews. Databases searched include MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Gender Studies s, Google Scholar and Proquest Dissertations and grey literature. The search yielded 1424 titles and abstracts of which 15 met the criteria for inclusion.ResultsConducted from 1994–2020, in provincial facilities in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec as well as federal prisons, the 15 studies included qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods. The most common outcomes of interest were related to HIV. Other outcomes studied included Papanicolaou (Pap) and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, contraception, pregnancy, birth/neonatal outcomes, and sexual assault.ConclusionIncarceration results in lack of access to basic services including contraception and prenatal care. Legal obligations to provide sexual and reproductive health services at professionally acceptable standards appear unmet. Incarceration impedes rights of incarcerated people to sexual and reproductive health.

      Authors: Farinaz Havaei, Minjeong Park, Oscar L. Olvera Astivia
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Ahead of Print.
      BackgroundIn 2013, the Mental Health Commission of Canada created a National Standard that includes 13 workplace factors associated with employee mental health.PurposeThis study (a) examined the psychometric properties of Guarding Minds at Work (GMW), the instrument used to measure the Standard’s 13 workplace factors and (b) assessed BC nurses’ workplace risk factors.MethodsA province-wide survey study of 3,077 direct care nurses working in acute care settings was conducted.ResultsSubscale internal consistencies were acceptable. For most items, the original alphas were greater than the alpha-if-item-deleted. All corrected item-subtotal correlations were moderate to high. The 13-factor structure showed an adequate model fit based on absolute fit indices (SRMR = 0.057 and RMSEA = 0.054) but the relative fit indices were lower than the recommended cutoff (CFI = 0.827 and TLI = 0.815). Nurses identified nine of the 13 GMW factors as serious or significant concern in their workplace.ConclusionsThe findings were consistent with a plethora of evidence pointing to shortcomings in nurses’ work environments. This was the first study partially supporting the reliability and validity of the GMW. More work is required to refine the GMW and gain a better understanding of its psychometric properties.
