Distinctive nursing practices in working with mothers to care for hospitalised children at a district hospital in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa: a descriptive observational study.

BMC Nurs 2020 19;19:28. Epub 2020 Apr 19.

Child Nurse Practice Development Initiative, Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, University of Cape Town, Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, Klipfontein Road, Rondebosch, Cape Town, South Africa.

Background: The presence of family members and their active involvement in caring for hospitalised children is an established practice in many African paediatric settings, with family members often regarded as a resource. This aspect of African paediatric nursing practice lacks formal expression or a clear conceptual basis, and difficulties arise when applying concepts of family involvement originating from the culturally distinct practice environments of higher resourced settings including Europe and America. The aim of this study was to articulate a nurse-led practice innovation intended to facilitate family involvement in the care of hospitalised children, observed in a paediatric inpatient ward in a district hospital in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

BMC Nurs 2020 10;19:20. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

3Department of Population Medicine and Health Services Research, School of Public Health, Bielefeld University, Bielefeld, Germany.

The low social prestige of this profession is based on the roles typically assigned to men and women to maintain gender identity according to their performance and embodiment. The aim of this study was to explore the social and cultural challenges faced by nurses while creating their professional image within the regional context of Lahore (Punjab) in Pakistan. Read More

Caring behavior and associated factors among nurses working in Jimma University specialized hospital, Oromia, Southwest Ethiopia, 2019.

BMC Nurs 2020 23;19:19. Epub 2020 Mar 23.

School of Nursing and midwifery, Institute of Health Sciences, Wollega University, Nekemte, Ethiopia.

Background: Nursing care behavior and nurse's perception of effective care behavior is an act, conduct, and mannerism enacted by professional nurses that convey concern, safety, and attention to the patient. Behavior associated with caring has a paramount role in linking nursing interaction to the client in experiences but, the concept is ambiguous and elusive toward different scholars to reach on common understanding. Only a few studies have been done on the caring behavior and associated factors globally, and no study was done in this study area. Read More

Association between the bed-to-nurse ratio and 30-day post-discharge mortality in patients undergoing surgery: a cross-sectional analysis using Korean administrative data.

BMC Nurs 2020 17;19:17. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

3Department of Nursing, Dongseo University, 47 Jurye-ro, Saha-gu, Busan, 47011 Republic of Korea.

Background: The likelihood of inpatient mortality has been found to be reduced by increased nurse staffing in several settings, including general wards, emergency departments, and intensive care units. However, less research has investigated cases where patients die in the community setting due to a health problem that occurred after they were discharged post-surgery, because it is difficult to integrate hospital data and local community data. Therefore, this study investigated the association between the bed-to-nurse ratio and 30-day post-discharge mortality in patients undergoing surgery using national administrative data. Read More

Evaluating the effectiveness and feasibility of nurse-led distant and face-to-face interviews programs for promoting behavioral change and disease management in patients with diabetic nephropathy: a triangulation approach.

BMC Nurs 2020 12;19:16. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, Kasumi 1-2-3, Minami-ku, Hiroshima, 734-8553 Japan.

Background: We examined whether telecommunication-device-based distance interviews are inferior to face-to-face interviews in terms of facilitating behavioral changes and disease management in patients with diabetic nephropathy.
