Clarifying the Concept of Depression in Women With Coronary Heart Disease.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

College of Nursing, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha.

The concept of depression in women with coronary heart disease has been poorly defined for several reasons: numerous widely variable instruments that operationalize the concept; divergent proposed instrument cutoff scores; and continued lack of female participants and data analysis by gender in coronary heart disease research. In the forty articles from 1990 to 2018 evaluating depression in women with coronary heart disease, the concept is defined by specific somatic and cognitive symptoms, preceded by particular physiological and psychosocial vulnerabilities, and leads to poorer outcomes. Concept clarification is necessary for accurate diagnosis of depression, leading to more timely and appropriate interventions for women. Read More

Applying Critical Race Feminism and Intersectionality to Narrative Inquiry: A Point of Resistance for Muslim Nurses Donning a Hijab.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Faculty of Human and Social Development, School of Nursing, University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Racism in nursing can be positioned through institutional forms of gendered, racialized, and religious structures. Muslim nurses who choose to honor the Islamic practice of donning hijab may be at risk of experiencing racism in contexts of post-September 11 era and the war on terror. Critical race feminism and intersectionality are theoretical frameworks that when applied to narrative inquiry can illuminate the standpoint of Muslim nurses donning hijab by providing a counternarrative as a point of resistant to racism in nursing.

Words Matter: An Integrative Review of Institutionalized Racism in Nursing Literature.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

College of Pharmacy (Dr Thurman) and School of Nursing (Drs Johnson and Sumpter), The University of Texas at Austin.

In health care, as in society, racism operates on multiple levels and contributes greatly to health and social inequities experienced by black Americans. In addressing racism, however, health care has primarily focused on interpersonal racism rather than institutionalized forms of racism that are deeply entrenched and contribute to racial inequities in health. In order to meaningfully address health inequities, health care must extend its focus beyond the interpersonal level. Read More

The Evolution of HIV Prevention: From Discipline to Control.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

School of Nursing, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

HIV prevention has changed since the identification of AIDS in 1981, the discovery of HIV in 1983, and the rollout of HIV antibody testing in 1985. Since this time, HIV prevention changed from behavior modification to testing to treatment as prevention to chemoprophylaxis using HIV medications among HIV-negative persons. While these modifications have been heralded as public health successes, critical evaluations are needed. Read More

Towards a Definition of Caregiver Fatigue: A Concept Analysis.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

School of Nursing, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti.

Using Walker and Avant's approach, a concept analysis was performed to develop a working definition of caregiver fatigue. Defining attributes of caregiver fatigue identified were "fell into role" by default, outside the norm of role expectations, excess caregiving demand, and exposure to prolonged period of caregiving. Model, related, and contrary cases were developed. Read More

Towards a Guiding Framework for Prison Palliative Care Nursing Ethics.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

University of Ottawa School of Nursing, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The number of people aging and dying behind bars is growing, bringing greater attention to the need for prison palliative care. While this trend has rightly led to increased scholarship, a focus on understanding the most effective way to deliver prison palliative care has overshadowed thinking about why the need itself has arisen, as well as deeper ethical thinking about how the nursing profession should respond. This article interweaves 4 strands of analysis-contextual, relational, social, and political-to produce a framework to guide ethical action in prison palliative care nursing, relevant to practice, research, policy, and education.

Health Care Experiences of Transgender Adults: An Integrated Mixed Research Literature Review.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

School of Nursing, University of California, San Francisco (Dr Cicero); Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital, and Department of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and The Fenway Institute, Fenway Health, Boston, Massachusetts (Dr Reisner); Duke University School of Nursing, Durham, North Carolina (Drs Silva, Merwin, and Humphreys); and Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina (Dr Silva).

This integrated literature review, framed by the gender affirmation framework, sought to contextualize the experiences of transgender adults interfacing with health care after the release of Healthy People 2020. The constructs of the gender affirmation framework represented 4 a priori themes used to organize the findings. The 23 articles synthesized (quantitative, n = 13; qualitative, n = 7; case studies, n = 2; and mixed methods, n = 1) revealed numerous obstacles accessing health care, discrimination from health care professionals and clinicians, restricted health insurance benefits for medically necessary care, and barriers to medically necessary care, such as cross-sex hormones, as well as primary and preventative health care.

Symbiotic Allegory as Innovative Indigenous Research Methodology.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Minnesota State University, Mankato.

This article introduces symbiotic allegory, an innovative research method designed by the researcher, an American Indian Chippewa. Symbiotic allegory incorporates traditional methods (storytelling, the Dream Catcher-Medicine Wheel, traditional grounding ceremonies) with Western interview methodology to evoke trust and candor among Plains Indians who had never voiced the traumatic stories of their childhood boarding school experiences. Implications reflect the importance of creating methodologies that incorporate the ways of knowing of the group being studied, which is best accomplished by a researcher who comes from within the ranks of the population being studied.

Queer Phenomenology, the Disruption of Heteronormativity, and Structurally Responsive Care.

Authors:
Jennifer Searle

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

School of Nursing, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) health disparities persist and reflect larger structural inequities that negatively impact the health of historically marginalized communities. By way of using queer phenomenology, the author analyzes a personal experience that was harmful to her as a lesbian patient who required emergency medical attention. Also a registered nurse, the author draws on her lived experiences to reveal heteronormativity as a prevalent, but largely unacknowledged, source of structural harms for LGBTQ patients. Read More

State of the Profession: The Landscape of Disability Justice, Health Inequities, and Access for Patients With Disabilities.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Departments of Health Sciences (Dr Engelman) and Nursing (Drs Valderama-Wallace and Nouredini), California State University, East Bay, Hayward, California.

The nursing profession can both perpetuate inequities and elevate the discourse around disability. Our article uses an intersectional lens to discuss the scope, magnitude, and determinants of health inequities that people with disabilities experience and the ways in which theoretical models of disability used in nursing education can further contribute to inequities. Our article makes the case for an intersectional social justice approach to nursing education by contextualizing the current state of affairs within historical and contemporary models of disability.

Spiritual Knowing: Another Pattern of Knowing in the Discipline.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Jan/Mar;42(1):58-68

University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing (Dr Willis); and William F. Connell School of Nursing, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts (Ms Leone-Sheehan).

Fundamental patterns of knowing in nursing have historically served to clarify the substance and structure of the discipline, significantly contributing to nursing's body of knowledge. In this article, we continue the scholarly conversation on patterns of knowing in nursing by advancing spiritual knowing as a pattern of knowing that helps advance nursing's agenda toward universal well-being and critical during this time toward interdisciplinarity. Implications for nursing are explored in relation to enduring and new questions that require our attention related to human beings, their environments, and healing. Read More

Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton.

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the first national symposium on nursing theory development, the need to clarify nursing's disciplinary perspective is just as relevant as it was 50 years ago. The purpose of this article is to regenerate the disciplinary perspective by analyzing the literature on the focus of the discipline of nursing, synthesizing the themes and suggesting areas of knowledge development for the discipline, and imagining ways to move forward in claiming, clarifying, and strengthening the discipline. The 4 themes identified were human wholeness, health/healing/well-being, human-environment-health relationship, and caring. Read More

Grieving is a normal reaction to loss; however, not everyone is able to recover from grief and adjust to a life after the loss. "Complicated grief" (CG) is a term used to describe intense and prolonged bereavement after the loss of a loved one that interferes with normal activities accompanied by destructive thoughts and behaviors. In practice and research, the concept of CG varies in definition and instruments used to measure. Read More

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

School of Nursing, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

By seeking answers to ontological and epistemological questions, nursing scholars explored the foundations of nursing and articulated the meaning of nursing science from various philosophical perspectives. This ongoing search for advancement and development of nursing aligns with the concept of "normal science" by Thomas Kuhn. Kuhn's science influenced nursing knowledge, resulting in the development of nursing metaparadigm and paradigms. Read More

Caring for Children Who Are Technology-Dependent and Their Families: The Application of Watson's Caring Science to Guide Nursing Practice.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

School of Nursing, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (Ms Breneol and Dr Goldberg); and Watson Caring Science Institute, Boulder, Colorado (Dr Watson).

Advancements in the medical field have resulted in an increased number of children with complex chronic conditions that may depend on technology to sustain or optimize life. Given that nurses provide substantial physical and emotional care for these children and families during their frequent hospitalizations, the development of an authentic caring relationship is imperative. A critical review of the literature examining the experiences and unmet care needs of this population was carried out and analyzed using Watson's Caring Science to explore how nurses can create an authentic caring relationship and environment for children who are technology-dependent and their families.

The Middle-Range Theory of Self-Care of Chronic Illness has been used widely since it was first published in 2012. With the goal of theoretical refinement in mind, we evaluated the theory to identify areas where the theory lacked clarity and could be improved. The concept of self-care monitoring was determined to be underdeveloped. Read More

Power and Resistance: Nursing Students' Experiences in Mental Health Practicums.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct/Dec;41(4):359-376

School of Nursing, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Mental health challenges are a leading health issue, and while nurses should be well positioned to provide care to this client population, nurses are not adequately prepared for this role during their education. This qualitative narrative inquiry explored nursing students' (N = 15) experiences within their mental health practicums. Analyzed through Foucault's concept of micropower, participants' narratives illustrate that students observed nurses holding power over patients, and enacted resistance to this power in a complex interplay of empowerment and disempowerment.

Nursing actions in support of equitable health and social relations have always been central to the work of our discipline. The mandate for social justice advocacy is identified in many of our professional and ethical frameworks, with systems-level advocacy situated as a core competency for advanced practice nurses. And yet, the sociopolitical processes that generate health inequities are not always readily understood by nurses. Read More

By giving a brief overview of the metaconcepts in nursing, with a focus on environment, we sketch a theoretical framework for an emancipatory perspective in nursing care practice. To meet the requirements of equality in care and treatment, we have in our theoretical framework added a critical lifeworld perspective to the antioppressive practice, to meet requirements of equity in health care encounter. The proposed model of emancipatory nursing goes from overall ideological structures to ontological aspects of the everyday world. Read More

Breastfeeding in Disaster Relief Camps: An Integrative Review of Literature.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct 13. Epub 2018 Oct 13.

Faculty of Nursing (Ms Hirani and Drs Richter and Salami) and Department of Anthropology (Dr Vallianatos), University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Breastfeeding is the safest mode of infant feeding during disasters and displacement. Although challenges associated with breastfeeding during humanitarian emergencies are global, they are particularly problematic in low- and middle-income countries such as Pakistan. To examine the factors that affect breastfeeding practices of displaced mothers in disaster relief camps, an integrative review of literature was undertaken. Read More

Authors:
Marianne Snyder

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2019 Jan/Mar;42(1):E1-E21

School of Nursing, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut.

Lesbian women experience discrimination within the health care system that leads many to cautiously navigate a heteronormative system. This metasynthesis offers a richer contextual understanding about lesbian health care experiences. The 4 overarching themes that emerged are: (a) sizing up the provider and the environment, (b) to say or not to say: "paradoxes of disclosure," (c) reactions to provider's assumptions, (d) and acknowledging my partner.

Norm-Critical Potential in Undergraduate Nursing Education Curricula: A Document Analysis.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct 13. Epub 2018 Oct 13.

Department of Health Sciences, University West, Trollhattan, Sweden (Drs Tengelin, Berndtsson, and Dahlborg Lyckhage); School of Health and Welfare, Jönköping University, Jönköping, Sweden (Drs Tengelin and Bülow); and Department of Social Work, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa (Dr Bülow).

The documents and literature that regulate nursing education are based on certain values and knowledge, and the underlying power in the curriculum raises the question of how health care professionals are molded during the course of their education. Norm criticism is a concept with its roots in critical pedagogy and gender and queer studies, emphasizing the origins as well as the consequences of marginalization, power, and knowledge of what is generally accepted as "normal" and "true." Norm criticism is used in this article to analyze the documents and literature underlying a nursing program in Sweden, which are shown to include a sometimes politically correct rhetoric, but one lacking a firm basis in social justice values.

An Emancipatory Approach to Cultural Competency: The Application of Critical Race, Postcolonial, and Intersectionality Theories.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct/Dec;41(4):316-326

College of Nursing, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Nurses teach, work, and conduct research in an increasingly hostile sociopolitical climate where health inequities persist among marginalized communities. Current approaches to cultural competency do not adequately equip nurses to address these complex factors and risk perpetuating stereotypes and discrimination. A theory-driven emancipatory approach to cultural competency will instead lead to lasting change and uphold the core nursing value of commitment to social justice. Read More

Refinement of the Beliefs About Personal Weight Survey.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct/Dec;41(4):E13-E25

School of Nursing, University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Dr Pickett); and College of Nursing, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan (Drs Peters and Templin).

This study tested the revised Beliefs About Personal Weight Survey-2 (BPWS-2) in 200 African American women, 18 to 40 years of age. Confirmatory factor analysis of a priori hypothesized factors resulted in 5 subscales-weight acceptance (8 items); excess weight acknowledgment (5 items); conventional weight regulation (3 items); circumstantial weight regulation (9 items); and weight concern (10 items). The Cronbach α ranged from 0. Read More

The Impact of New Graduate Nurse Transition Programs on Competency Development and Patient Safety: An Integrative Review.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Oct/Dec;41(4):E26-E52

East Carolina University College of Nursing, Greenville, North Carolina.

Stronger evidence on the value of new graduate nurse transition programs is needed to justify the cost and warrant expansion of these programs to more health systems. The aim of this integrative review was to critically analyze published research on the relationship between new graduate nurse transition programs and patient safety outcomes. Limited evidence was found on actual safety improvement; rather, transition programs have predominately measured the development of competency as a process outcome variable for improving patient safety.

Narrative Inquiry Into Shelter-Seeking by Women With a History of Repeated Incarceration: Research and Nursing Practice Implications.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2018 Jul/Sep;41(3):260-274

School of Nursing and Health Studies, University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Nurses who provide care in the community to women with a history of repeated incarceration may struggle to understand the full extent of the barriers faced by this population and as a result risk giving suboptimal care to an already underserved group. This narrative inquiry study of stories told by 10 women with histories of repeated incarceration fulfilled 2 purposes: to demonstrate how women's shelter-seeking stories exposed uniquely complex patterns of health opportunity and risk and to demonstrate how storytelling might serve as an informative mode of nursing health assessment for this population.
