O objetivo deste estudo foi descrever e analisar os processos de subjetivação inscritos na constituição da experiência de si da/o enfermeira/o, nas práticas assistenciais de um cenário de trabalho exemplar – a Unidade de Terapia Intensiva; submetendo-os ao olhar foucaultiano sobre os regimes de verdade, através do qual pretendeu-se interrogar as condições nas quais a/o enfermeira/o problematiza o que ela/e é. Nos processos de subjetivação, buscamos indagar das tecnologias do eu - jogos de verdade através dos quais a/o enfermeira/o se dá a pensar seu próprio ser, quando se percebe, se reconhece, se julga como tal. O referencial teórico utilizado foi de Michel Foucault, complementado por estudos de Jorge Larrosa sobre os dispositivos de produção e mediação da experiência de si. O local de pesquisa foi a Unidade de Tratamento Intensivo do Hospital Universitário Júlio Muller da rede pública de serviços do Sistema Único de Saúde do município de Cuiabá e o grupo pesquisado foi formado prioritariamente por enfermeiras/os que aí exerciam atividades de assistência em saúde, pois uma vez que as tecnologias do eu constituem dispositivos de reflexividade, nos interessou a experiência de si mesmo da/o enfermeira/o; entretanto...

Captar a atuação cotidiana do profissional enfermeiro e suas representações sociais no contexto institucional psiquiátrico, foi o objetivo desta pesquisa. Neste cotidiano, o enfermeiro está envolvido com conflitos, tensões, contradições, ambivalência e polissemia. Utilizou-se um instrumento projetivo (TSC), com 16 cenas que retratam a atuação do enfermeiro no contexto institucional. Nas duas etapas de coleta dos dados, os sujeitos participantes eram 17 enfermeiros assistenciais de cinco instituições psiquiátricas do município de Ribeirão Preto e 17 enfermeiros pós-graduandos [ensino e pesquisa], doutorandos em Enfermagem Psiquiátrica, atendendo aos critérios éticos. Os achados foram submetidos à Análise de Conteúdo e à análise léxica do ALCESTE, com o suporte teórico das Representações Sociais. Os resultados mostram que o enfermeiro atua junto ao doente mental utilizando-se de artifícios mediados pelas relações técnicas, interpessoais, interacionais e institucionais. Considerando as permanências e diversidades de sua atuação, observa-se o afastamento do enfermeiro do objeto central do seu trabalho, o doente mental. Os elementos periféricos sustentam sua posição, percebida através das metáforas da atuação como controle...

O modelo de assistência ao parto o Brasil está fortemente relacionado à atuação do médico e a maioria dos partos é realizada em ambiente hospitalar: em 2004, 94% dos partos foram hospitalares e 43% dos nascimentos ocorreram por cesariana, uma atividade estritamente médica. Na rede privada de serviços de saúde do município de São Paulo, o percentual de cesarianas gira em torno de 84%. A partir do final da década de 1990, vêm sendo formuladas políticas públicas para promover mudanças nesse modelo. Algumas dessas proposições favorecem a inserção de enfermeiras obstétricas e obstetrizes (EO) na assistência ao parto, reconhecendo sua importância para promover o parto normal. Nesse contexto, a autonomia profissional da EO na atenção de baixo risco e o trabalho colaborativo na assistência ao parto são elementos fundamentais para uma atenção qualificada. Por sua vez, a atuação da EO na assistência ao parto é definida não exclusivamente pelas políticas de saúde oficiais, mas também pela organização da assistência praticada nas instituições. A forma como a EO atua na assistência ao parto e como vivencia a autonomia profissional e o trabalho colaborativo dependem do local de atuação, das regras e normas da instituição...

Recente profusão de novos papéis profissionais do enfermeiro e mudanças nas práticas da enfermagem têm sido descritas mundialmente e exercem impacto no tipo de cuidado provido e nas formas de sua provisão. O interesse deste estudo é a ideia de papel clínico, que, apesar de ser uma expressão comumente usada no cotidiano, é pouco explorada em termos conceituais. Este estudo teve como objetivo desenvolver o conceito de papel clínico do enfermeiro. A Metodologia de Análise Qualitativa de Conceito foi aplicada em suas três fases: Identificação dos Atributos, Verificação dos Atributos e Identificação das Manifestações do Conceito. Na primeira fase, os atributos abstratos e universais do conceito foram identificados, utilizando-se a Análise Crítica da Literatura, que resultou no estudo de 24 publicações. Na segunda fase, aplicou-se a Teoria Fundamentada nos Dados para verificar os atributos do papel clínico na experiência do enfermeiro. Nessa fase, realizou-se estudo com sete enfermeiros assistenciais do Hospital Universitário da Universidade de São Paulo. Os dados foram coletados por entrevistas abertas, que foram analisadas e interpretadas em categorias inter-relacionadas, com a derivação de um modelo teórico da experiência do papel clínico do enfermeiro. Na terceira fase...

O termo humanização tem sido freqüente na prática assistencial, na formação dos profissionais da saúde e nas políticas públicas. Entretanto, não percebemos o apoio do conceito do termo humanização (quando ele existe) em uma teoria ou filosofia, o que dificulta a discussão da temática da humanização em nível científico. Partimos, neste trabalho, do seguinte conceito de humanização: encontro de subjetividades no e pelo ato de cuidar. Considerando que há uma necessidade urgente em tratar a humanização cientificamente, os objetivos desta pesquisa foram: eleger um referencial filosófico que possa sustentar a teoria e a prática do cuidado humanizado; refletir sobre o conceito de humanização proposto neste estudo à luz do referencial teórico escolhido; definir categorias filosóficas que subjazem as relações de cuidado de enfermagem; construir uma articulação entre o recorte filosófico escolhido e os saberes da enfermagem. O referencial escolhido foi a filosofia de Emmanuel Lévinas. Esta escolha baseou-se na finalidade da enfermagem, na complexidade que envolve o saber e o fazer desta profissão e, também, na necessidade de incluir um referencial apropriado sobre humanização na formação do profissional enfermeiro. O método utilizado para a leitura das obras foi a hermenêutica. Após a leitura destas obras elegemos as categorias que subjazem as relações de cuidado entre um eu enfermeiro e um outro...

The purpose of the study was to understand the nurse s experience with human care in the Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The objective was to describe the nurse s experience in caring for patients in the ICU and to analyze the nurse s perception of the care provided. The study is a descriptive inquiry of qualitative nature with a phenomenological approach. We interviewed eight nurses, 26 and 43 years of age, that provide care in the ICU of a private hospital in Natal/RN, during the manths of July and August of 2006. We analyzed the data acording to the method of Colaizzi. Four categories emerged from the data: The search for the maintenance of life, The technicalbureaucratic activities, The recognition of the patient s individuality, and the expression of the nurse s feelings.The analysis allowed us to describe the lived experience of the nurse s care the ICU and to comprehend the structural elements of this experience. The results showed that the nurse s experience presents itself as a process of the several actions and feelings that occur while the social relations between the patient and the nurse develop. Finally, we understand that although the study shows an experience based on a biological model of health, these nurses possess an initial idea on how to reach humanized care in its essence...

This qualitative study was designed to explore the career development of Black female chief nurse executives. Although a small proportion of Black female nurses have achieved positions at the nurse executive level, there remains a paucity of Black female nurse executives in this crucial position which raised the question of what factors contributed to this lack of advancement, but, more important, what factors have contributed to the success of the few who have achieved such level of success in healthcare organizations. The purpose of the study was to explore the career paths of Black female chief nurse executives with a view of understanding the factors which both facilitate and hinder the career development of these leaders in healthcare organizations. The guiding research question was, How do Black female nurse executives in this sample describe their career development? The participants in this study were Black female chief nurse executives located throughout the United States who, for the most part, were raised in segregation with a strong family foundation. To collect data, semistructured telephone interviews were conducted with 10 Black female chief nurse executives throughout the United States. The transcripts from the interviews were transcribed...

BACKGROUND: Nurses are becoming increasingly important as providers of primary health care in Australia. In November 2010, Medicare provider rights and Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme rights for nurse practitioners, working in private practice and in collaboration with a medical practitioner, were introduced in Australia. Although international evidence suggests that nurse practitioners would be appropriate and acceptable providers of care at the first point of contact, such as primary health care, there is little Australian evidence about what care consumers are willing to accept from nurse practitioners. OBJECTIVES: To ascertain what care Australian health-care consumers would accept from nurse practitioners in this setting. PARTICIPANTS: Australian adults over 18 years of age. METHODS: National Survey delivered online. Information about the survey was disseminated through a media campaign, stakeholder engagement and through the health-care consumer networks nationally. RESULTS: The total number of respondents that started the survey was n = 1883. Ninety-five percentage (n = 1784) of respondents completed the survey. The majority of respondents were women, aged 25-54 years, had completed tertiary education and had an annual household income of more than A$80...

The role of an aged care nurse practitioner (ACNP) is well recognised internationally however, in Australia, the implementation of this advanced role is still in its infancy with few gerontological nursing experts registered as nurse practitioners (NP). This single Victorian facility 2002 study was the first to consider the role of an ACNP in Australia and the first to describe the clinical and social benefits or otherwise of ACNP interventions in an Australian context. NP Studies in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) from 1999 – 2002 investigated the role in other nursing domains followed by an ACNP study conducted over 2004-2005. A subsequent national ACNP study in 2005 provided complementary results to this first Australian ACNP study which created the framework for these subsequent projects. This study aimed to establish: clinical or other outcomes that a gerontological nurse practitioner (ACNPs) could achieve for older persons in an Australian residential aged care facility, factors that impacted upon the introduction of such a role, a definition of the role and to establish whether such a role would benefit older persons in Australia. Various methods were used to determine the numerous outcomes which were to be studied in this project. A quantitative analysis of the functional and social status of residents who participated in the project...

AIM: The article summarises results of a systematic review on the effectiveness of nurse-led clinics for patients with coronary heart disease. The objective was to present the best available evidence related to effective interventions in nurse-led cardiac clinics including patient education, risk factor assessment and continuity of care. METHODS: Following the principles of the Cochrane Collaboration for systematic reviews on effectiveness, this is an update to a previously published review. Thirty databases, relevant journals and hand searching of reference lists were the basis for a comprehensive literature search for the period September 2002 to March 2008. Assessment of methodological quality, data extraction and synthesis was undertaken using a systematic review management tool (JBI-SUMARI). When possible, data was pooled in a meta-analysis. RESULTS: The systematic review is based on seven randomised controlled trials. Inconsistencies of interventions executed in nurse-led clinics and various effects on the outcomes make a comparison difficult. The major nurse-led intervention applied in the clinics consisted of health education, counselling behaviour change and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. There were no harmful effects on patients with coronary heart disease identified when exposed to a nurse-led clinic. A few risk factors were significantly reduced in the short term by attending nurse-led clinics...

BACKGROUND There is a vast amount of international literature which, although agreeing on the need for advanced practice nurse roles, simultaneously debates and discusses the difficulties with nomenclature, definition and subsequent implementation of such roles. Due to this ambiguity it is difficult to equally compare evidence in this field across different countries. A context-specific systematic review on the qualitative evidence of the experience of being an advanced practice nurse in Australia has not been undertaken previously, however it is imperative for nursing managers and leaders to understand the complexities of advanced nursing roles in order to effectively utilise and retain these experienced and valuable nurses. With the creation of a national nursing regulating authority in 2010, it is timely to explore in-depth the experience of being an advanced practice nurse from a national perspective. OBJECTIVE To identify the experience of being an advanced practice nurse working in Australian acute care settings. INCLUSION CRITERIA TYPES OF PARTICIPANTS Registered nurses working in advanced practice roles in acute care settings throughout Australia. PHENOMENA OF INTEREST The experience of being an advanced practice registered nurse working in an Australian acute care setting...

BACKGROUND Nationally and internationally, advanced practice nurses are working under various titles and in different contexts to address gaps within healthcare systems. Analysis of advanced practice roles in different countries has been undertaken, but due to variations in cultural, geographical and professional factors, it is difficult and perhaps ineffectual to compare roles between countries. Contextual factors may also affect the actual experience of being an advanced practice nurse. A systematic review was therefore undertaken of qualitative evidence on the experience of being an advanced practice nurse in Australia, to provide deeper understanding of the role in the defined context. METHODS The review followed the method for qualitative synthesis as per the Joanna Briggs Institute. An extensive search was undertaken of databases and online resources to find published and unpublished studies. Papers from 1990 to October 2011 which met specified inclusion criteria were appraised using the Joanna Briggs Institute Qualitative Assessment and Review Instrument. RESULTS Three published studies and one unpublished dissertation were included in the review. From these studies, 216 findings were extracted and these were formed into 18 categories. Six meta-syntheses grouped under the headings of expert knowledge...

Background: Shortages of health care professionals and an ageing nursing workforce are some of the factors leading to the creation and evolution of many new nursing roles. Advanced practice nurses across the globe are working under many different titles and within various contexts, in order to address gaps within current health care systems. Comparison of roles between countries is difficult and possibly inappropriate due to Australia’s unique environmental and demographic characteristics. A context-specific systematic review on the qualitative evidence of the experience of being an advanced practice nurse in Australia has not been undertaken previously, however it is imperative for nursing managers and leaders to understand the complexities of advanced nursing roles in order to effectively utilise and retain these experienced and valuable nurses. Aim: This study aims to provide deeper understanding of the experience of being an advanced practice nurse working in Australian acute settings and identify personal, professional and organisational factors influencing experiences. Methods: A three-step search strategy, following the Joanna Briggs Institute method was used to identify published and unpublished interpretive studies meeting set inclusion criteria. Critical appraisal and data extraction were completed the Joanna Briggs Institute Qualitative Assessment and Review Instruments. Results: Following the search and appraisal process...

BACKGROUND: Blood pressure targets in individuals treated for hypertension in primary care remain difficult to attain. AIMS: To assess the role of practice nurses in facilitating intensive and structured management to achieve ideal BP levels. METHODS: We analysed outcome data from the Valsartan Intensified Primary carE Reduction of Blood Pressure Study. Patients were randomly allocated (2:1) to the study intervention or usual care. Within both groups, a practice nurse mediated the management of blood pressure for 439 patients with endpoint blood pressure data (n=1492). Patient management was categorised as: standard usual care (n=348, 23.3%); practice nurse-mediated usual care (n=156, 10.5%); standard intervention (n=705, 47.3%) and practice nurse-mediated intervention (n=283, 19.0%). Blood pressure goal attainment at 26-week follow-up was then compared. RESULTS: Mean age was 59.3±12.0 years and 62% were men. Baseline blood pressure was similar in practice nurse-mediated (usual care or intervention) and standard care management patients (150 ± 16/88 ± 11 vs. 150 ± 17/89 ± 11 mmHg, respectively). Practice nurse-mediated patients had a stricter blood pressure goal of ⩽125/75 mmHg (33.7% vs. 27.3%, p=0.026). Practice nurse-mediated intervention patients achieved the greatest blood pressure falls and the highest level of blood pressure goal attainment (39.2%) compared with standard intervention (35.0%)...

This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of nurse practitioner services for minor injuries in an adult emergency department and to ascertain consumers' satisfaction with the care received. Nurse practitioner roles in Australia have been progressively developing since a pilot project in 1990 examined their feasibility. Currently, nurse practitioners in Australia practise in a variety of specialist areas including coronary care cardiology, adult and paediatric palliative care, emergency, diabetics, aged care and perinatal care. The reported study used a retrospective design that conducted case-note audits and explored patient satisfaction with after-care questionnaires. One hundred case notes of patients treated by the nurse practitioner were audited and 57 patients completed questionnaires exploring their satisfaction and perception of the care received. Analysis of the case-note data indicated that the majority of presenting complaints were minor injuries. Of these injuries, 96.3% of presentations triaged level 4 and 94.4% of those triaged level 5 were seen within the time frame recommended by the Australasian Triage Scale. Forty-six per cent of patients required X-rays and 2% required pathology tests during their emergency department stay. The majority of patients were satisfied with the treatment received from the nurse practitioner. Patients are satisfied with management of small injury presentations by nurse practitioners in the emergency department. Incidentally...

Primary health care reform is currently underway in Ontario with the goals of improving health care access, quality and continuity of care while increasing patient and provider satisfaction and cost effectiveness. Interprofessional collaboration in the provision of primary health care has been widely espoused in the health care literature as a means of achieving the goals of primary health care reform. Primary health care nurse practitioners in collaboration with physicians and other allied health professionals have a fundamental role in enhancing primary health care in Ontario. The purpose of this study was to explore and describe nurse practitioners’ experiences and perceptions of interprofessional collaboration with physicians in the provision of primary health care in Ontario. A qualitative descriptive study design was used and six nurse practitioners working in a variety of primary health care settings in Ontario were purposively sampled and interviewed regarding their experiences and perceptions of interprofessional collaboration with partnering physicians. Interviews were analyzed using qualitative content analysis techniques and themes were identified. Seven themes were identified as key factors influencing collaboration within the nurse practitioner – physician dyad from the nurse practitioner’s perspective. These themes included: quality of communication...

South Africa is experiencing a serious shortage of nurses, which has to be addressed to prevent crises in health care services. Previous studies (Fletcher 2001:324; Oosthuizen 2005:117) found that nurses change their work environment due to dissatisfaction with their job situations. This implies that creating a favourable environment in the workplace situation could help retain professional nurses in their posts, implying that retention strategies should be effective. An exploratory, descriptive, contextual and qualitative design was used to describe nurse managers' views on factors which could influence professional nurse retention, as well as their views regarding attributes that were required to enable them to contribute towards enhancing professional nurse retention. A purposive sample of nurse managers employed in public and private hospitals in the Gauteng province was selected. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 21 nurse managers. The results were analysed qualitatively and contextualised within Vogt, Cox, Velthouse and Thames's Cork-Top (Bottleneck) Theory of Nurse Retention (1983) and Lewin's Force-Field Analysis Theory (1952). Factors pertaining to individual nurses, the organisation and nurse managers could influence the retention of professional nurses. Poor working conditions...
