Abstract

Background: Cambodia’s nursing profession and nursing education system continue to progress 40 years after destruction by the Khmer Rouge. The author, who has a relationship with a hospital in southern Cambodia, was asked to teach physical assessment techniques to improve patient care.Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the impact of culturally congruent physical assessment media on the knowledge-base of Cambodian nurses.Methods: This article describes two years of an on-going project designed by the author who annually recruits US based BSN nursing students to use the ADDIE model to create and record segments on physical assessment which are posted on a private You Tube channel for the limited English- speaking Cambodian nursing staff. Optional post-tests are administered by the Cambodian hospital’s nursing director.Results: Test results reflect knowledge gained on cardiac, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal physical assessment skills with means ranging from 73.55% to 95.71%. Physical assessment skills until recently were not taught in Cambodia's nursing programs. Cambodia's nursing profession is advancing and a corresponding skill set including conducting physical assessments is necessary. As a majority of the project participants did not have prior exposure to the material, a pre-test was not provided and participation in post-testing was optional.  The objective was to provide useful professional educational materials at a comfortable language level for the Cambodian nurses using examples which were culturally relevant.Conclusion: The BSN students successfully developed culturally relevant educational products the Cambodian nurses found useful.

Abstract

Background: Health disparity can be observed using the lens of emancipation through nursing.Objective: This paper aims to describe the concept of emancipation through nursing, situate its position within the theory of ’Emancipation through Nursing,’ and illuminate the implications of caring within the context of health disparity.Methods: The sequential process of Rodgers’ Evolutionary Concept Analysis and Chinn and Kramer’s Process of Theory Construction were applied. Review of the literature utilizing six major databases was conducted using the keywords ‘emancipation’ or ‘empowerment’ and ‘health disparity’ and ‘nursing’ and with year restrictions from 2000-2017.Results: Findings revealed that the attributes of the concept of ‘emancipation through nursing’ are conscientization or critical consciousness, correct and adequate health information, co-construction of a creative process for health service, and collective action. These attributes were preceded by the following antecedents: marginalization, hegemony, the oppressed and the emancipator, centering, and liberation. The resulting features of enlightenment, enervation, empowerment, and evolvement served as constructs that collectively structured the theory of Emancipation through Nursing in the Context of Health Disparities.Conclusion: Nurses worldwide will benefit from descriptions and illuminations of the concepts of emancipation and nursing within the theory of Emancipation through Nursing in the Context of Health Disparities.

Abstract

Meningioma is the most common type of primary brain tumor, which affect several domains of life, such as physiological, psychological, and social life conditions. Although surgery has been performed on meningioma patients in Indonesia, some patients still experience sequelae such as headache, impaired mobilization, disruption of activity, and visual disturbances. This narrative review aims to describe nursing rehabilitation programs in patients with meningioma in Indonesia. As a result, the nursing rehabilitation program is considered as an integral part of multidisciplinary rehabilitation, which can be applied in the nursing rehabilitation center and in the form of telenursing. The roles of nurses include providing evidence-based direct care, psychosocial support, patient / family education, care coordination, and continuing health promotion starting from the period of patient care in the hospital to discharge. In conclusion, the nursing rehabilitation program has the potential to improve the quality of life in meningioma patients, especially in Indonesia.

Abstract

Background. Patients with advanced cancer require treatment and the fulfillment of their needs, based on the results of assessments regarding their physical symptoms, psychological and spiritual needs. Palliative care should be delivered with a person-centered care approach. It is important to consider the patients’ reports of their carings’ outcomes.  Comparisons between the patients’ and nurses’ perceptions of palliative care outcomes can be used to improve the quality of palliative care.Objective. The purpose of this study is to compare the patients’ and nurses’ perceptions of palliative care outcomes during the patients’ hospitalization.Methods. This is a comparative descriptive study with a cross-sectional design. Data were collected from May to June 2018 from a total of 106 patients with advanced cancer, and 61 nurses. The versions of the Palliative care Outcome Scale (POS) for patients and nurses were used to measure the palliative care outcomes of the patients’ and nurses’ perceptions.Result. The study found a significant difference between the perceptions of the patients and nurses for the palliative care outcomes, particularly in the information availability domain (p = 0.001), the other symptoms domain (p = 0.029), and the anxiety feelings domain (p = 0.030), while the other seven domains had no significant differences between both groups (p > 0.05).Conclusion. The anxiety feelings, other symptoms and information availability domains are the aspects of palliative care which need more attention from health care providers, especially nurses, when caring for patients with advanced cancer.

Abstract

Background: Nursing intervention is part of nursing process. The accurateness of intervention needs to be explored through an effort to measure validity and reliability of the intervention.Objectives:  This study aimed to investigate the validity and reliability of four Nursing Intervention Classifications (NICs) of Self-Care Assistance (SCA) on patients with stroke.Methods: Validity measurement involved 4 experts, while reliability involved 7 samples for each NIC. Validity was analyzed using content validity index (I-CVI and S-CVI), while reliability was analyzed using kappa and percent agreement.Results: Sixteen activities of NICs (I-CVI score less than 0.78) were eliminated and two activities considered not applicable. The results of reliability were above 0.85 kappa value with 85% of percent agreement.Conclusion: Elimination of not valid activities increased reliability.

Abstract

Background: Peripheral artery disease is a type of cardiovascular disease which belongs to vascular system disease and ranked the second most common non transmissible disease that cause death in the Philippines. The ankle brachial index (ABI) constitutes simple, non-invasive, cost-effective method for the early detection of peripheral artery disease (PAD) which complements assessment of cardiovascular risk.Objective: The study aims to determine who are at risk of peripheral artery disease among the Geriatrics and Policemen in Iligan City.Methods: It utilized descriptive-correlational-comparative research design and purposive sampling method. The data were gathered among 40 respondents: 20 Geriatrics and 20 policemen from Camp Tomas Cabili in Iligan City with the use of modified standardize questionnaire from Southern California Health Specialist Peripheral Artery Disease Patient Questionnaire.Results: Results showed majority (50%) of respondents were 50 years old and above; most (65%) were male. Pearson Correlational Coefficient shows that, among the demographic profile of the respondents, only age and lifestyle (diet and exercise) had a significant relationship with their degree of suspicion of having PAD. On the other hand, there was no significant relationship between gender, history of heredo-familial diseases, smoking, alcohol drinking habits, and the respondent’s degree of suspicion of having PAD. The result contradicts the nursing maxim that smoking is the most important risk factor for PAD; as in this case, even if most of the respondents were non-smokers and non-alcoholics, their poor diet and exercise alone increased their risk or degree of suspicion of having PAD.Conclusion: While age is beyond the control of the respondents, there is much that they could do to improve their lifestyle (diet and exercise) to lessen their risks for PAD. An institutional cafeteria serving nutritious food and exercise gyms could greatly benefit both the geriatrics and the policemen.
