The next sessions can be kept short and repeated at various times during the next 2 3 days so that maximum staff members could directly correspond with the trainer. Information packages can be provided for those unable to attend which after reading have to be reviewed by them with a nurse on duty prior to their own shift. These packages can contain history and reasons of falls and some fall management strategies Graham (2012) . Upon completion of these sessions, the participants should be able to Ø Correctly name the components of Fall response. Ø Correctly complete the Tracking record for Improving patient safety.
Background: Describe a nursing situation you encountered this week. Today we attended clinical for second time. Our main focus was patient with COPD or any gas exchange difficulty. We assessed the patients with gas exchange problems. For example, my patient had COPD disorder.
This would seem to indicate that any nurse is potentially at risk for making a medication error (Mayo et al. 2004). Prevention of medication errors is linked to accurate reporting of medication errors. Reporting medication errors is dependent on individual nurse’s decision making. Medication errors are typically reported through institutional reporting systems such as incident reports (Wakefield et al.1996).
To assess drug effect such as adverse effect, biomarkers, change tumor burden or any similar biological outcome the PK model will be modified including a PD measurements. To test the drivers of specific PD response various PD descriptors are used – maximum concentration (Cmax) as fixed time point descriptor,
The Health Belief Model (HBM) is one of the first and broadly used theory of health behavior. (3)see Abraham and Sheeran, 2005, for a recent review).It was developed to understand peoples’ beliefs about whether they are at risk for a certain disease or health problem, and their perceptions to seek prevention mechanisms or early detection and treatment (50,20,36,93).The HBM states that health behavior is constructed by two cognitions: perceptions of illness threat and evaluation of behaviors to counteract this threat. Threat perceptions are based on perceived susceptibility of the individual to the illness and the perceived severity of the consequences of the illness for the individual. Similarly, evaluation of possible responses involves consideration
It focused on current handover practices across 23 wards at this hospital. They found that practices varied widely, were time consuming and were not patient centered as they lacked involvement from the patients. The findings of this study supported the authors’ belief that a change to more standardized and patient centered handoffs were needed. Liu, W., Manias, E., & Gerdtz, M. (2012). Medication communication between nurses and patients during nursing handovers on medical wards: A critical ethnographic study.
The participants are undergrad nursing students enrolled in a City University to obtain their bachelors’ in nursing age ranging from 19-35. More than 80 percent of the students are female, and 20 percent consists of the male. A needs assessment was conducted to determine students’ knowledge relating to catheter insertion, removal, and maintenance. The findings from the needs assessment indicate a gap in knowledge deficit as it relates to catheter insertion, maintenance, removal. The project was implemented based on the students need assessment to facilitate their learning needs and styles.
4) We included all articles of randomized controlled trials with pediatric population without restriction of disease. We excluded articles which did not meet the inclusion criteria following analysis of the title and abstract. Studies reporting parental intervention (ex : Bigelow et al., 2012; Franck et al., 2012; Jiang et al., 2014), protocols, editorial articles, and papers reporting only the results of a study (with context and methods of the study reported elsewhere) were excluded. >>Figure 1 : Flow chart. nMed: number of medical articles, nInf: number of nursing
It consists of research design, study area, study sample, sampling criteria, sampling techniques, data collection methods and analysis. 3.1 Research design C.R Kothari (2009) states ‘research design is arrangement of condition for collection and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure’ In carrying out the research, the study will apply descriptive research design with qualitative and quantitative data The design has been selected because the study is primarily concerned with describing the situation of a particular event that is guidance and counseling implementation. Using the design, the researcher will be able to survey and describe accurately and precisely the whole process of guidance and counseling provision in Zanzibar government secondary schools. 3.2 Area of the Study The study will be conducted in Zanzibar government secondary schools. There are reasons behind the selection of the study area.
Similarly, another reviewed study of Wang and Gupta (2014) have used the data from different inpatient units of two hospitals for studying the factors including the unit culture, workload on short term, and type of shift to explain the nurse absenteeism. The researchers also developed the models for investigating the influence of demand as well as the variation in absentee rate on the performance of staff plans. The researchers proposed the near-optimal staffing strategies for the absence management in the healthcare industry. Tripathi, et al (2010) studied the pattern of sickness among the nurses during one year and compared the absenteeism among the nurses in different areas of healthcare industry. For this purpose, the researchers selected 385 nurses and categorized the leaves as planned and unplanned after determining the
