Background/Purpose: The effectiveness of cognitive treatments for low back pain, a prevalent and costly condition, are commonly based on the principles of the Cognitive Behavioral Model of Fear of Movement/(Re)injury. In this model, persons with a painful injury/experience who also engage in pain catastrophizing are most likely to avoid activity leading to disability. The validation of this model in patients with acute low back is limited. The purpose of this project was to examine the relationship of perceived disability with variables identified in the Cognitive Behavioral Model of Fear of Movement/(Re)injury such as, pain severity, pain catastrophizing, depression, and exercise in persons with acute low back pain...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to longitudinally explore the experiences of young adult, adult, and older adult intergenerational caregivers caring for a parent with end-stage heart failure (HF). Design: This study was a secondary analysis of qualitative data collected during a longitudinal study that sought to determine the palliative care needs of individuals with end-stage HF and their family caregivers. Methods: Longitudinal interviews from 23 young adult, adult, and older adult children who were caring for a parent with end-stage HF were selected for thematic analysis...

Background and Purpose: Although lifestyle interventions have been shown to be effective in losing weight and increasing physical activity in community settings, little is known whether these programs may also ameliorate negative mood states in healthy overweight/obese adults when such programs are delivered in workplace settings. The aim of the study was to determine whether a health partner program may alleviate depressive symptoms among healthy overweight/obese individuals at 1 year. Methods: A secondary data analysis was performed using the Center for Health Discovery and Well Being database at Emory University in the United States...

Purpose: This study provides an overview of the self-defined skills and practices of European orthopedic nurses in empowering patient education. Nurses themselves have highlighted the necessity to enhance their own skills, but possibilities for further education have been limited. Methods: The data ( n = 317 nurses) from a structured survey were collected during the years 2009-2012 in seven European countries with an EPNURSE-questionnaire (Empowering Patient Education from the point of view of Nurses). Results: Nurses considered patient education as an important part of their work and evaluated their own skills as good...

Sharon Farra, Kathy J Keister, Ann M Stalter
Background and Purpose: Synergy is a term found widely throughout the sciences. There is a need for improved methods and delivery of instruction that supports learners in their pursuit of academic goals and facilitates their transition into the professional role. Critical for students is teamwork training, both as team members and facilitators. Some teams have outcomes greater than their own individual efforts, while others do not. One possible explanation for this phenomenon is synergy. A concept analysis was conducted to define synergy in the context of nursing education and to gain insight on its impact on learning...

Background and Purpose: Preceptors play a key role in the transition experience of new nurses. Preceptorship is a stressful role and is influenced by contextual factors. There is a lack of sufficient understandings of the perspectives and lived experiences of Iranian nurse preceptors of preceptorship. The aim of this study was to explore the perspective and lived experiences of Iranian nurse preceptors of preceptorship. Methods: A qualitative design using a hermeneutic phenomenological approach was used. Six Iranian nurse preceptors were chosen using a purposeful sampling method from a large paediatric teaching hospital in an urban area of Iran...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Discharge instructions provided to hospitalized participants with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are essential to promote improved health outcomes, reduce incidence of hospitalization, and enhance quality of life (QOL). This study evaluated the feasibility of implementing the American Lung Association's COPD Action Plan and assessment of QOL among participants hospitalized for acute exacerbation of COPD or COPD as a primary or secondary diagnosis...

Youn-Jung Son, Mi Hwa Won
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Readmissions after hospitalization due to multiple symptoms in heart failure (HF) are common and costly. Patients have difficulty differentiating HF symptoms from comorbid illness or aging. Therefore, early identification of symptom clusters could improve symptom recognition and reduce hospital readmission. However, little is known about the relationship between symptom clusters and readmission in HF patients. This study aimed to identify symptom clusters among Korean patients with HF and the relationship between symptom clusters and hospital readmission...

Patrick O'Byrne
BACKGROUND: The extant literature about party drug use among gay men primarily produces a list of negative health sequelae that correlate with using these substances. Missing from the current research are explorations about why people consume party drugs. In other words, researchers have not systematically collected people's narratives about "what they get out of" party drugs. METHODS: Using Deleuze's and Bataille's work, exploratory semistructured interviews were undertaken with gay men who reported attending circuit parties, using party drugs, and engaging in condomless sex...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Nursing students must acquire knowledge and skills sufficient to deliver high-quality services. Previous studies indicated that students' palliative care knowledge was insufficient. Few studies evaluating nursing students' palliative care opinions and skills are available in Turkey. This study aimed to determine student nurses' knowledge of palliative care. METHODS: This descriptive survey study included 658 students. Researchers collected the data via a 19-item questionnaire...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Watson's Human Caring Model on the meaning of life and symptom management in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. DESIGN: The study was conducted using a real test model featuring a pretest and posttest and a control group. METHODS: The sample consisted of 158 adult cancer patients (79 in both the experimental and control groups). The sample size was determined and the participants were allocated to groups using power analysis and a random sampling method...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Global nursing is a relatively new term identifying nurses contributing to global health. While personally and professionally rewarding, global health projects present unique challenges to global nurses that impact partnerships. The aim of this article was to describe the role of global nursing, and focus on relational-cultural theory as the foundation of transformative partnerships. METHODS: This article is based upon a review of literature related to global health and relational inquiry...

BACKGROUND: The quality of care provided for patients in mental health-care facilities remains a challenge for health-care providers in general and for nurses in particular. Identifying the level of quality of care provided for patients in mental health-care facilities as perceived by nurses and patients may help health-care providers improve the quality of care and improve patients' outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to assess the perceptions of nurses and patients of the quality of nursing care, and explore the differences in their perceptions of quality of care in mental health-care facilities in Jordan...

Debra J Gillespie, Rachel Schiffman
With the Joint Commission's revelation that as much as 65%-70% of the time miscommunication has been discovered to be the root cause of many sentinel events, it may be time to examine a communication theory to support practice improvement efforts. Effective communication has been shown to decrease medical errors, improve patient satisfaction, and increase adherence to treatment plans leading to better health outcomes; yet very few studies have examined communication theories and their applicability to practice...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Violence among nurses and in nursing academia is a significant issue, with attention increasingly focused on damage resulting from psychological violence, such as bullying, harassment, aggression, and incivility. Each workplace's interpretation of violence will impact individual behavior within the organization. Organizational and environmental factors can contribute to violent behaviors becoming normalized in the workplace. When violent behaviors go unconstrained, they become imbedded within the workplace culture...
