Experience feedback data is increasingly recognised as being helpful in improving healthcare services, and in meeting patient and family needs. This end-of-life care project, based on the principles of appreciative inquiry, sought to learn from the experiences of bereaved people whose relative had died in an acute hospital setting. Informal feedback, offered during a routine telephone call, was thematically analysed and interpreted in an appreciative manner. Confirmatory representations of caring practices and behaviours were identified, categorised and disseminated in a way that enabled staff to come to know and understand end-of-life care at its best, rather than as a set of problematised events...

This case study describes the successful management of a patient with primary lymphoedema, who was experiencing lymphorrhoea and epidermolysis, using a multidisciplinary approach. The patient had Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. The multidisciplinary team, in an outpatient clinic in Japan, included a certified lymphoedema therapist, plastic surgeons, and a wound, ostomy and continence nurse. The team performed complex physical therapy and lymphaticovenular anastomosis, which promoted the resolution of the lymphorrhoea...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

Direct current cardioversion is a procedure for treating abnormal heart rhythms, and cardioversion is often performed electively to restore sinus rhythm in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. A retrospective evaluation of elective cardioversion data at a local general hospital was undertaken to evaluate the success and outcomes of cardioversion. This evaluation also considered the outcomes for two subsets of patients with heart failure and obesity, as it has previously been concluded that cardioversion is unsuccessful in these patients...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Faye Bostock, Gerri Mortimore
Shift work is necessary for the provision of health services, especially in hospitals as it is the only way to provide continuous care to patients. Working at night is inconsistent with the body's biological clock and night shift working hugely disrupts the circadian and sleep wake cycles. In 2020, the World Health Organization classified night shift working as being a 'probable' class 2A carcinogen and a number of independent cohort studies of both night workers and shift workers have observed increased incidence of certain cancers...

BACKGROUND: Redeployment in health care can have a negative impact on the mental wellbeing of staff. Advanced planning and provisions for wellbeing support for health professionals has been recommended following previous pandemics. At the authors' institution nurses were redeployed overnight from a specialist cystic fibrosis ward to a COVID-19 high-dependency unit. AIM: To evaluate nurses' wellbeing following this redeployment during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic...

Loneliness is a complex universal human experience. A variety of evidence indicates that prolonged loneliness can have a negative effect on an individual's long-term physical and psychological outcomes. Empirical evidence and systematic reviews show strong links between loneliness and ill health, particularly cardiovascular disease and mental health. Loneliness is increasing in frequency and severity. The issue of loneliness has been part of UK Government mandates since 2018; however, evidence suggests that, due to the pandemic, the need to focus on the issue may be even more significant...

INTRODUCTION: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to significantly more healthcare workers (HCWs) experiencing burnout than previously. This burnout is strongly associated with low resilience. Addressing organisational stresses and the introduction of resilience training will help to reduce the proportion of HCWs experiencing this phenomenon. AIMS: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of the biopsychosocial changes and challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic on the healthcare workforce, exploring, specifically, the impact on and relationship between HCWs' resilience and burnout...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Jennifer Yates
Lymphoedema is the gradual, abnormal build-up of lymph fluid in the tissues resulting from a failure of the lymphatic system. The swelling impedes movement and is painful. Compression garments are contraindicated and not tolerated by patients with extensive peripheral arterial disease. In this case study, simple lymphatic drainage was therefore considered a safer treatment option to reduce oedema and to encourage proactive self-management for a patient with bilateral amputations, diabetes and peripheral arterial disease...

This cross-sectional study aimed to explore the incidence of impostor phenomenon among 79 nurses in specialist roles in a single NHS trust in England, using an online anonymous questionnaire that included the Clance Imposter Phenomenon Scale and free-text responses. Results indicated a high prevalence of impostor phenomenon, with no specific variables predicting its occurrence. Four main themes emerged: self-doubt, role expectations, fear of exposure as an impostor, and factors leading to burnout. The study highlights the need for targeted support and training for this cohort, particularly as impostor phenomenon was found to be prevalent during career transitions and was not limited by gender...

Central venous access devices (CVADs), including peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) and cuffed tunnelled catheters, play a crucial role in modern medicine by providing reliable access for medication and treatments directly into the bloodstream. However, these vital medical devices also pose a significant risk of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) alongside associated complications such as thrombosis or catheter occlusion. To mitigate these risks, healthcare providers employ various strategies, including the use of locking solutions in combination with meticulous care and maintenance protocols...
