Critical Analysis of the Nursing Metaparadigm in Spanish-Speaking Countries: Is the Nursing Metaparadigm Universal?

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Apr-Jun 01;44(2):111-122

School of Nursing, The University of Texas at Austin (Mr Suárez-Baquero and Dr Walker); and Maternal and Perinatal Nursing Care Research Group, School of Nursing, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogota, Colombia (Mr Suárez-Baquero).

This critical analysis examines the definitions of concepts in the nursing metaparadigm presented in English language literature in relation to the perspective of published Spanish-speaking nurse researchers in Spanish-speaking countries. Because language shapes our understanding, nurses who are taught in Spanish to become nurses possess a distinctive disciplinary perspective, based on the notion of nursing as the science of caring. This article is intended to facilitate an awareness with which researchers can overcome language barriers in theoretical development. Read More

Revisiting the Concept of Othering: A Structural Analysis.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Feb 23. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

School of Nursing, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (Drs Jacob and Perron); School of Nursing, University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (Dr Gagnon); and Department of Nursing, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Eau Claire, Wisconsin (Dr Canales).

The various ways in which nurses relate and interact with patients, who are considered marginal, vulnerable, and in some ways "different," tend to revolve around the concept of othering. To date, much attention has been given to the immediate situation in which othering may take place, both in terms of process (occurring within interactions) and outcomes (exclusion and marginalization). Drawing on current literature from feminist studies and critical theory, we have drawn attention to broader historical, political, cultural, and social factors that come to shape nurse-patient relationships and propose a new dimension to the concept: structural othering.

Upstream Factors in Population Health: A Concept Analysis to Advance Nursing Theory.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Feb 17. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Office of Nursing Research and Innovation, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio (Dr Distelhorst); School of Nursing, University of Akron, Akron, Ohio (Dr Graor); and College of Nursing, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio (Dr Hansen).

The assessment of upstream factors is important in population-based nursing practice. The aim of this concept analysis is to enhance understanding of upstream factors and articulate a definition linked to the Conceptual Model for Nursing and Population Health. Upstream factors are thus defined as established conditions related to economic, social, and physical environments that occur outside the health care system, in the communities where people live, and contribute indirectly to the health outcomes for groups of individuals through multiple causal pathways.

Nursing With the People: Reimagining Futures for Nursing.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Feb 17. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Augusta University, College of Nursing, Augusta, Georgia.

We wish to advance a theory of nursing that intentionally engages in questions of politics and economics, centering equity and justice as a foundation for the provision of nursing care. As health care costs rise and health disparities widen, nurses have a clear imperative to develop alternative health care delivery models unmoored from the conventional employment and profit-driven structures that now disappoint us. This mandate arises from our disciplinary focus that emphasizes social justice as a social and moral good linked to the human services nurses provide. Read More

Authors:
Alicia Webster

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Apr-Jun 01;44(2):136-147

University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.

Although there is very little doubt that health disparities among transgender women remain prevalent in the United States, there has been very little research conducted regarding the unique experiences of Black and Latina transgender women. This article uses the Sinners and Victims Social Policy Model to delve into the historical foundations that have created these gaps in equity, while also reviewing current literature focusing on the distinct systemic racial and ethnic oppression of these communities. Results suggest that these historical and intersectional considerations are necessary to inform public policy, health care, and education. Read More

Normalization of Deviance: Concept Analysis.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Apr-Jun 01;44(2):171-180

School of Nursing, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky (Dr Wright); School of Nursing, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City (Drs Polivka and Christian); and College of Nursing, University of Kentucky, Lexington (Dr Odom-Forren).

Normalization of deviance is a phenomenon demonstrated by the gradual reduction of safety standards to a new normal after a period of absence from negative outcomes, which suggests that the absence of negative outcomes tends to reinforce the behaviors associated with cutting corners, bypassing safety checklists, and ignoring alarms. While the concept was first identified within the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, it has a strong, dangerous presence within health care, holding specific peril within high-risk environments such as the operating room. The aims of this article are to (1) analyze the concept of normalization of deviance and (2) identify the role of normalization of deviance with respect to the behavior of nurses in high-risk health care environments to prevent adverse patient outcomes.

Mistrust Reported by US Mexicans With Cancer at End of Life and Hospice Enrollment.

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Jan-Mar 01;44(1):E14-E31

OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and OHSU School of Nursing, Portland, Oregon (Dr Rising); Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing, Portland (Drs Hassouneh and Lutz); Livio Health, Minneapolis, Minnesota (Dr Berry); and Department of Internal Medicine, University of Minnesota, Robbinsdale (Dr Berry).

Hospice research with Hispanics mostly focuses on cultural barriers. Mindful of social justice and structural violence, we used critical grounded theory in a postcolonial theory framework to develop a grounded theory of hospice decision making in US Mexicans with terminal cancer. Findings suggest that hospice avoidance is predicted by mistrust, rather than culture, whereas hospice enrollers felt a sense of belonging. Read More

Authors:
Marni B Kellogg

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Apr-Jun 01;44(2):157-170

University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Nurses on the front lines of health care are impacted psychologically by their work and may experience secondary traumatic stress. The literature contains several different terms to explore concepts that describe the impact of traumatic patient experiences on the nurse, making it difficult to differentiate the concepts. Using the Walker and Avant method of analysis, the author reviewed nursing-specific publications within the last 10 years and seminal works to develop a purer meaning of secondary traumatic stress and distinguish it from other related terms.

Authors:
Patrick Chiu

ANS Adv Nurs Sci 2021 Jan-Mar 01;44(1):3-15

Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Nursing policy advocacy continues to be recognized as a key part of a nurse's role by educators, professional associations, and regulators. Despite normative calls on nurses to engage in political action and advocacy, limited theories, models, and frameworks exist to support this practice within nursing. Using Walt and Gilson's Health Policy Triangle Framework, this article explores the theoretical underpinnings of policy advocacy to enhance nursing's contemporary role in advancing social justice.
