4.1 Introduction The focus of this study was to explore the experiences of mothers and fathers bereaved by Second Trimester Miscarriage most specifically focusing on their experiences of hospital care. The key findings from the study are presented in Chapter four, thematic analysis (Attride-Sterling, 2001) was employed to analysis the data and thematic networks were designed to represent the two global themes of clinical care needs and relational and social experiences of miscarriage which emerged from the data. The first section of the chapter outlines a brief description of the overall recruitment and response rate, and the demographic/clinical information related to the mothers who participated in the study. This is followed by a presentation
The Three Delay model by Thaddeus and Maine was proposed as a theoretical framework for this study (Thaddeus & Maine 1994). It is still one of the most widely applied models in maternal health programming today and argues that delay in recognizing complications and deciding to seek care, delay in reaching a treatment facility, and delay in receiving adequate care and treatment at the facility are the main contributing factor to maternal death (McCarthy & Maine; Thaddeus & Maine 1994). The framework focuses on factors that look into the interval “between onset of obstetric complications and its outcome.” It stresses that “normal” home births are taken out of this equation and delays occur in response to change delivery setting in times of emergencies;
There is a need for affordable healthcare for both the poor and middle class who often go uninsured and therefore unable to receive medical care (Ehrenreich, 1979; Mason et al., 2002, p. 35). For nurses it is important to take on leadership roles, so nurses can influence change by entering social, political, and economic arenas (Kleffel, 2006). To start, “nursing education should include subjects like political economy of health systems, environmental hazards, women’s studies, the history of social movements, and techniques and strategies of political organizing (Ehrenreich, 1979; Mason et al., 2002, p. 36). With proper education nurses can start to understand that they can bring about change and redefine the role of a nurse as an activist as well as an advocate (Ehrenreich, 1979; Mason et al., 2002, p.
As consequences most of the life threatening complications occur during childbirth .Therefore; labor rooms should have the facilities or designed as an emergency unit’s .Within the unit mothers with special needs will be taken into consideration through the creation of dedicated zones 1. Mothers having normal deliveries 2. Mothers having antenatal or postnatal complications, requiring acute maternity care 3. Babies requiring minimal
A “dai” (traditional birth attendant) and a “maulvi” (religious leader) are two people who often guide and deliver the babies of pregnant women in Pakistan. The adult literacy rate in Pakistan is 54% (Farid, 2011). In the article, the lack of health knowledge and available medical care contributes to the poor health outcome of women and their
However, shortcomings with PHRs such as limited availability and accessibility, breaches in confidentiality, rigid format of data and missing data are all noted by Hebda et al (2013). The author has also recognised these limitations on clinical practice, with files physically being misplaced and pages of files being placed into incorrect patient’s charts, causing breaches in confidentiality and possible treatment errors if the correct information is not present. Hawley et al’s work (2014) highlights that EHR in a maternity setting aims to integrate care between General Practitioners, midwives, alternative health professionals and the woman herself. Integration between these care sectors is required for effective and safe management of pregnant women. Ireland is currently implementing an EHR for all women and babies under the care of maternity services.
Although understandably overwhelmed, Family B appeared to comprehend the information reviewed by each specialist, reinforced by the MRI and ultrasound images shared, as each provider used the teach back method to evaluate the parents’ understanding and repeatedly asked if they had any questions. A folder of contact information for each specialist was offered that also included FAQ sheets on all medical diagnoses. Each of the physicians encouraged the parents to contact them with additional questions they might have following the meeting. As a parent, I think it would be helpful to also have contact information for a support group or family mentor who has a child with a similar diagnosis to address any concerns about quality of life for the child and family across the
Additionally, it describes self-care deficit as a general theory composed of four related theories; The theory of self-care, which describes how and why people should take care of themselves, the theory of dependent-care, which explains how family and friends provide dependent care for a socially dependent person, the theory of self-care deficit, which describes why people receive assistance through nursing and finally the theory of nursing systems which explains the relationships maintained for nursing production (Alligood, 2014 p.244). Orem asserts that when self-care declines, illness, disease or death will occur. Pregnant women with GDM who do not practice self-care increase their potential for illness and complications associated with GDM such as neonatal shoulder dystocia, macrosomia, and preeclampsia. Nurses assess individuals ' needs and identify self-care deficits. Knowledge deficit is identifiable with the use of questionnaires to test the understanding of the identified population (Bousso et al.,
1.5 Significance Foundation of the demographic, way of life and co-grim components that are connected with low back agony can prompt better arranging and execution of precaution measures against low back torment among medical attendants. 1.6 Limitation This study is limited to students and faculty of institute of nursing DUHS. 1.7 Definition of the key terms Prevalence Prevalence is the total number of cases of a disease present in a given population at a specific time. The prevalence of lower back pain among the nurses was determined by the number of nurses affected by lower back pain per hundred nurses, in this
Therefore, this can be identified as a major disadvantage for the SriLankan female employees in private sector and as a loophole in national implementation of laws on Maternity Benefits. Moreover, convention No.103 provides health care as maternity benefits. All pregnant women are provided with maternal health care during the antenatal, intra– natal and postnatal
