Kate Hopkinson
Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is a debilitating condition that can substantially affect patients' quality of life (QoL), mental health and ability to perform daily tasks. International guidelines on the management of CSU, jointly developed by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GA2 LEN), European Dermatology Forum (EDF) and World Allergy Organization (WAO), recommend a treat-to-target strategy until symptom control or remission is achieved...

AIM: the aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of a faculty-structured international travel elective to Zambia for undergraduate UK nursing students. METHODS: a descriptive phenomenology approach was used to discover and explore the students' experiences of their elective...

METHODS: in this clinical trial, 70 patients who were candidates for elective upper and lower gastrointestinal system surgery were selected. They were randomly divided into two groups: case (morphine 0...

Aleksandra Logina, Marian Traynor
There is a shortfall of over 10% of the NHS workforce in the UK and the Nursing and Midwifery Council has reported that an estimated 18% of nurses leave the profession altogether within 3 years of qualification. Canada and the USA also face retention issues. The transition period from student to registered nurse is considered an important period during which the newly qualified nurse (NQN) gains experience. This article aims to analyse how the transition from student to registered nurse can be more effectively facilitated, thereby enhancing the delivery of patient care...

Thousands of bariatric surgery procedures are performed in the UK each year, including gastric bypass surgery. The one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) is increasingly performed in the UK, and nurses may find themselves providing care for patients who have undergone this procedure. This article outlines the anatomical and physiological changes associated with OAGB, routine care of these patients in the short and long term, and the identification and management of complications.

Anna Davidson, Julia Williams
AIM: to explore the factors affecting quality of life in patients who experience facial disfigurement resulting from surgical treatment for head and neck cancer. BACKGROUND: the number of people diagnosed with head and neck cancers has been rising over the past 30 years. This, combined with the improved survivorship of cancer patients, has led to a need to understand how these patients adapt to the physical, social and emotional toll of cancer and facial disfigurement and how these affect quality of life...

Clinical research nurses (CRNs) need to be competent in both clinical and research skills. In the past 10 years there has been increasing focus on developing the research competencies of CRNs. Employers, however, use the nurses' registered status as a proxy measure of clinical competence to perform their duties. The true extent of what clinical skills are practised by CRNs in a large NHS trust is unclear and there is a lack of validated measures to obtain this information. By using a mixed-methods approach of questionnaire and semi-structured interview, we aimed to pilot and validate a questionnaire to identify CRNs' self-reported confidence with clinical skills...

BACKGROUND: the need for health care to be safe is increasingly guiding the development of policies to improve clinical practice and education; risk management and patient safety are essential competencies for health professionals. OBJECTIVE: to examine how students working towards different degrees in Italy perceived their competence in clinical risk management and patient safety when learning in the classroom and the clinical setting. METHODS: the Italian version of the H-PEPSS questionnaire was given to 154 students; 78 were studying for a nursing degree and 76 were on the cardio-circulatory pathophysiology and cardiovascular perfusion techniques (CPCPT) degree course...

Coloplast has conducted a qualitative study among health professionals working in the field of continence care. Interviews with health professionals working in urology and rehabilitation provided insights into the barriers to, and supporters of, adherent behaviour-suggesting ways in which health professionals can work with patients performing intermittent self-catheterisation (ISC) to support better adherence. This includes individualised training that addresses individual fears, ensures correct understanding of the body and the treatment, and eliminates misconceptions...
