Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: Conventionally, surgical wound drains are removed within 7 to 10 days post operatively. Hospitalization could be shortened to 2-4 days if the patients are discharged with the drain and subsequently return for its removal at the outpatient clinic.

Aim: The aim of this study is to examine the readiness for early discharge with a drain amongst post-mastectomy or wide local excision with axillary clearance patients.

Methodology: A sample size of 100 patients, who were newly diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing operation were recruited. A survey was conducted at an outpatient clinic where patients were attending the clinic for removal of drain. A returned questionnaire implied consent to the study. Descriptive data was reported.

Findings: 100 questionnaires were distributed, achieving a high response of 95% return rate. The results indicated that 75.5% were very motivated to be discharged with the drain, though 30.5% were worried about being discharged with the drain. Findings further showed that prior to discharge, 93.7% and 95.8% agreed that they were given demonstration on how to handle a Radivac drain and briefed about their discharge respectively and 90.5% were confident in managing the drain at home. 81.1% of the participants indicated that they were well-supported at home by the breast care nurses. Overall as high as 96.9% were satisfied with the early discharge planning and 93.7% were favorable about opting for early discharge with drain and 95.8% reported being well-prepared to care for themselves at home.

Conclusion & Significance: Early discharge with drain following breast cancer surgery is definitely feasible for patients provided they are well-prepared pre-and post-operatively and briefed on the expected outcome post-operatively. This study will aid in more in-depth review on surgical counseling to the patients.

Abstract:

According to International Diabetes Federation, Diabetes mellitus is one of the most challenging and burdensome chronic diseases of the 21st century. There are now an estimated 4.6 million people with diabetes in Iran, which is 8.5% of the population. Critical theory emphasizes recognition of oppressive behavior and emancipation for a group of people. When applied to adolescents with diabetes, critical theory can discover alternatives to inappropriate and ineffective methods used for diabetes care delivery. Using a critical theory perspective, nursing care of adolescents with diabetes is examined in this article and suggestions for more positive and effective approaches are presented. Nurses have a great role in helping diabetes patients. This article exposes the contribution of the Critical theory to Nursing. Nursing as a caring profession involves an interpersonal relationship with patients.

Adolescents with diabetes who can truly engage with the nurse are more likely to become more interested in their diabetes self-care. An interactive relationship between nurse and patient may open communication and allow the adolescent to ask questions and take more responsibility for diabetes management. Critical social theory, as applied to the population of adolescents with diabetes, sheds light on the fact that many health care professionals oppress this group. With positive health outcomes as the goal of diabetes education and diabetes care, it seems only fitting that health care professionals, whose purpose is to promote health, would do whatever is necessary to facilitate that process. If adolescents with diabetes are made aware of their rights as consumers of health care and allowed to air their frustrations with diabetes care delivery, they can determine what works and what does not. The adolescents themselves deserve to decide what motivates them to take care of themselves and their diabetes. Nurses must first see the ways in which they are guilty of oppressing this population and then assist in opening the eyes of the adolescents themselves. When both groups understand where they have come from and where they need to go, they can work together to make the necessary changes. Open communication, understanding, and genuine concern will characterize positive health care professional–patient relationships in which adolescents with diabetes are able to learn about and eventually, if not immediately, take care of their diabetes. Positive relationships with health care professionals, a thorough knowledge of diabetes, and motivation and commitment to perform self-care activities are likely to result in happier adolescents and ultimately healthier adults with diabetes.

Abstract:

This mixed-method research design utilized Copeland and Hewson’s (2000) questionnaire through a survey of all the clinical instructors and student-nurses in the fourth-level from the four universities in Negros Oriental, Philippines to evaluate the level of effectiveness of the teaching strategies employed in the clinical area. The evaluations made were compared across the different universities and whether the evaluations of the students relate to those of the instructors in general. It also employed separate Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with six to eight instructors and student nurses, randomly chosen from those who have answered the questionnaire. These were analyzed through qualitative content analysis. Initially, open-coding was done to the transcribed FGD proceedings to map general categories and form themes and consequently, a framework was created to reveal the challenges they face in the clinical area. The study revealed that the clinical instructors rated their teaching strategies as excellently effective, while the students rated them as very effective. The study also revealed that the instructors are challenged by teacher-student generation, linguistic and cultural gaps and the students’ disturbed values system, undesirable scholastic traits and socio-economic state. Conversely, students are challenged by their instructors’ teaching and discipline styles. They are also confronted with institutional and personality prejudices in the clinical area. The study concluded that while the instructors and students view the effectiveness of the teaching strategies differently, they are also each other’s challenges. Thus, the study recommends enhanced teaching strategies through training.

Throughout her nursing career, she has predominately worked in different hospital units as a Registered Nurse and Operation Theatre Nurse at a Quality and Safety Unit and Nursing Education Settings in Hong Kong and abroad.

 

Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: Patient safety is to prevent harm from being done to the patients and should be reinforced in every aspect of nursing care, skills, knowledge and procedural guidelines. As part of the nursing students’ training 1, patient safety is a critical notion that is taught in the first lesson and must be set as a priority during patient care. Yet, the literature continues to highlight the need to heighten understanding of teaching methods used to enhance students learning about patient safety and to strengthen the way patient safety is taught in the nursing curriculum to ensure safe patient care. This presentation will present the clinical teachers’ views of incidents encountered and how they handled them in the clinical settings.

Methodology: A qualitative methodology using focus group interviews composing of 20 clinical teachers were conducted by providing incidents that had occurred among junior nursing students during the clinical practicum.

Findings: Clinical teachers actively spoke about their views of the incidents and strategies they used to handle them. A major aspect of patient safety relates to how nursing students view near misses or actual incidents.

Conclusion & Significance: Given the urgency in the clinical settings in which these incidents are managed, strategies proposed should be realistic and practical. The ideas about creating a safety culture in an organization where workers need not fear reporting or identifying mishaps is a commitment for promoting patient safety. Using such incidents as teaching tool and not perceiving them as negative occurrences can be considered. In this way, clinical practicum may be improved for clinical teachers and nursing students.
