Jonas Veterans Health Scholar, University of Missouri, 1 University Blvd, Ste. 40, Saint Louis, MO 63121, United States of America. Electronic address:

Aim: The purpose of this paper is to present the conceptual framework that was used to guide a study on the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Background: The Stress and Coping Framework for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus was developed in response to a review of the literature that suggests psychological stress, or simply distress, can contribute toward the development of T2DM with the established risk factors of genetic risk for diabetes (GRD), obesity, and advancing age. The literature shows that distress can influence insulin sensitivity and contribute to the development of T2DM; however, much of the literature fails to acknowledge the influence of distress in collaboration with GRD, obesity, and advancing age.

Authors:
Karin L Becker

Appl Nurs Res 2020 Jun 5;53:151248. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

United States Air Force Academy, United States of America. Electronic address:

Background: Communicating pain is a difficult endeavor due to the lack of observable pathology, the immeasurable nature of pain, and the presence of comorbid symptoms. While research has shown the value of cure-centered and care-centered communication, it is unclear how chronic pain patients would like to structure pain communication with their providers so that it produces pain disclosure and emotional support. Aim This study examines communication preferences of chronic pain patients including types of questions asked and information received to allow a holistic portrayal of the experience of living with chronic pain.

Grave new world: The conspiracy of silence surrounding non-voluntary euthanasia.

Appl Nurs Res 2020 04 19;52:151245. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Academic College of Tel Aviv Yaffo, Postal code G161001 Tel Aviv, Israel.

The scholarship of euthanasia indicates that in most cases, to date, non-voluntary euthanasia has been studied where euthanasia is legalized. Findings of these studies demonstrate the 'slippery slope' and reveal that non-voluntary euthanasia is pervasive in these countries. The research is aimed at answering two questions: (1) What are the common death hastening methods? (2) Is the acceptance of active non-voluntary euthanasia related to the legal status of euthanasia? A qualitative study was conducted in ICUs with 15 nurses. Read More

A complex population: Nurse's professional preparedness to care for medical-surgical patients with mental illness.

Appl Nurs Res 2020 04 7;52:151232. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

East Carolina University College of Nursing, Greenville, NC 27858, USA.

Globally, patients with the co-morbidity of physical and mental illness experience greater health complexities than the general population.

Methodological challenges in conducting instrumentation research in non-communicative palliative care patients.

Appl Nurs Res 2020 Feb 6;51:151199. Epub 2019 Nov 6.

Formerly: University of Maryland Baltimore School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD 21201, United States of America.

Well-designed, rigorously implemented instrumentation studies are essential to develop valid, reliable pain assessment tools in non-communicative (non-self-reporting) palliative care patients. When conducting a pain instrumentation study, a research team identified methodologic challenges surrounding informed consent, eligibility criteria, acute pain operational definitions, patient recruitment, missing data, and study-related training during a run-in phase at the beginning of the project and during the conduct of the study. The team dealt with these challenges through identifying root causes, implementing remedial measures, and collecting data to demonstrate improvement or resolution. Read More
