#1
Barbara Pesut, Sally Thorne, Madeleine Greig, Adam Fulton, Robert Janke, Mathew Vis-Dunbar
The conceptualization of assisted death as an act performed by physicians has resulted in a lack of attention to nurses' roles and experiences with the processes that surround an assisted death. In this article, we synthesize evidence from 6 articles focusing on the experiences of 55 nurses from Canada, Belgium, and the Netherlands, with relevant ethical and policy implications derived from the literature. Nurses have a central role in negotiating inquiries about assisted death and in providing wraparound care for patients, families, and other health care providers...

Epistemology is the study of the grounds of knowledge. We illustrate through case studies how epistemic injustice is manifested in the delivery of reproductive health care services for women from Somalia, even though it may not be intended or recognized as injustice. Testimonial injustice occurs when women are not believed or are discredited in their aim to receive care. Hermeneutic injustice occurs when a significant area of one's social experience is obscured from understanding owing to flaws in group knowledge resources for understanding...

The toxicity of traditional masculinity has become a heated topic of mainstream media debate since the American Psychological Association's release of psychological treatment guidelines for men and boys. To recognize how traditional masculinity is toxic, there needs to be greater understanding of the social norms and gender socialization behind traditional masculinity. Gender-based social norms and gender socialization have had dire consequences on how men behave, act in relationships, and care for their health...

Nurses are instrumental in the battle against lifestyle-related diseases, yet nurses may not be participating in their own health-promoting self-care. This study used qualitative content analysis of survey responses to explore nurses' perceptions regarding barriers and facilitators to health-promoting behaviors such as exercise, healthy eating, and participation in stress reduction activities. Seven themes emerged: lack of time/overwork, lack of resources/facilities, fatigue, outside commitments, "unhealthy" food culture, supportive versus unsupportive individuals, and positive versus negative role models...

Min Kyeong Jang, Catherine Vincent
Health-related quality of life is increasingly used as a predictor in nursing research and practice because its multidimensional constructs encompass the holistic spectrum of care. This article comprehensively analyzes and evaluates the conceptual model of health-related quality of life of Ferrans and colleagues using Fawcett and Desanto-Madeya's 2013 framework. The model encompasses all relevant concepts and propositions in its theoretical foundation while maintaining consistency with the nursing metaparadigm...

Cathleen Aspinall, Stephen Jacobs, Rosemary Frey
This article presents intersectionality theory with critical realism as a philosophical framework for studying nursing leadership. In response to gaps in the current leadership literature, the aim is to develop an approach that addresses how the multiple social positions nurses hold can create an intersecting matrix of oppression that impacts on their opportunities to develop as leaders. The result is a theoretical foundation, which can inform the methodological framework of future studies. Providing evidence by which a reader can judge the merits of a chosen methodology, it sets the case for integrating intersectionality with critical realism for studying nursing leadership...

Military to civilian reintegration is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon warranting holistic perspectives. Complex phenomena require theory to understand and interpret relationships among concepts. Despite the need for theory-driven research, recent nursing reports often lack a theoretical structure. We extracted relevant concepts from the Neuman's Systems Model (stressors, environment, and person) and the Transactional Model of Stress and Coping (primary and secondary appraisal, coping, and adaptation) to form a Conceptual-Theoretical-Empirical model...

Yan Ming, Holly Wei, Hong Cheng, Jie Ming, Mark Beck
Nursing ethics are fundamental principles to nursing practice. The purpose of this study is to analyze patients' complaints filed against nurses from a nursing ethics perspective. This is a qualitative study. The data source is the patients' complaints filed in a university-affiliated hospital in China. The complaints are categorized into 4 themes: uncompassionate attitudes, unprofessional communication, disrespect of patient rights, and unsatisfactory quality of nursing care. The ethic of belonging reflects nurse-patient relations...

The Transition Management Model was developed by and for nurse care coordinators at an Independent Health Network to reduce Medicare and Medicaid 30-day readmission rates. Preimplementation assessment revealed the need for a nursing science framework to effectively reduce 30-day readmissions. The model was developed through thoughtful integration of transitions theory with best practice guidelines set forth by Project BOOST. Initial results of the Transition Management Model produced a decline in readmission rates by 11%...

Health care organizations have invested resources to implement and upgrade information systems capable of collecting large quantities of data. Recent technology developments have created a renewed interest in studying clinician information needs. However, a common definition and analysis of the concept clinical information needs have not been provided. Walker and Avant's method was used to perform a concept analysis. Following a review of relevant literature, a clinical information need was defined as a conscious expression, which can be verbal or nonverbal, of a desire for knowledge to answer clinical questions in the course of decision making to deliver patient care...

Since the 2009 publication by Petrovskaya et al on, "Dilemmas, Tetralemmas, Reimagining the Electronic Health Record," and passage of the Health Information Technology for Economic Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, 96% of hospitals and 78% of providers have implemented the electronic health record. While many positive outcomes such as guidelines-based clinical decision support and patient portals have been realized, we explore recent issues in addition to those continuing problems identified by Petrovskaya et al that threaten patient safety and integrity of the profession...

This article provides an analysis of the concepts of movement and mobility within the context of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) for patients' functioning, disability, and health. The methodology developed by Walker and Avant was used to clarify definitions, components, and relationships relevant to the 2 concepts and to the elements of the ICF framework. Definitions and the relationship between concepts are key information that clinicians and researchers need to measure the correct concept when they are assessing the effectiveness of interventions in nursing practice...

African Americans face unique communication challenges when interfacing with the health care system that has a history of discrimination and power differentials. In response to the trifecta of race, class, and gender oppression when seeking health care, African American women make critical decisions regarding how to communicate during the clinical encounter for depression care. The purpose of this study was to use focused ethnography to explore the co-cultural communicative practices that African American women use when seeking depression care...
