Abstract

Background: Constipation is one of the most common problems in stroke due to inactivity and immobility.Objective: To compare one hour and every two-hour turning regimens in the prevention of constipation in patients with stroke.Methods: This was a quasi-experimental research with pretest posttest with control group design. There were 39 participants assigned in intervention group (n=17) and control group (n=22). The intervention group turned every one hour, while control group turned every two hours. The turning regimen was implemented for five days. A bowel score was used to measure constipation. McNemar Test and Fisher Test were used to measure and compare the bowel score between the two groups.Results: There was no significant difference in the effect of two turning regiments on constipation (p > .05). However, based on a descriptive result, there was a slight decrease in the number of constipation from 47% to 29.4% in the intervention group, and from 32% to 27% in the control group.Conclusion: Turning might still become an effective way to prevent constipation in patients with stroke either every one hour or two hours without diet modification.

Abstract

Philippines as one of the top producers of nurses worldwide must benchmark its national nursing standards to the rest of the world. Therefore, the standards must be compared and contrasted with other countries like Australia. The main purpose of this study is to compare and contrast nurse’s competency and performance indicators between the Philippines and Australia nursing competency system. This is a review article guided by Donnelly and Weichula’s Qualitative- Comparative Analysis (QCA). The process includes identification of the condition of interest, dichotomization and development of truth tables. Two official documents namely the Philippines’ National Nursing Core Competency Standards and Australia’s National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse were selected as the condition of interest. Findings show that Australia adopted a one pronged-generalist, non-linear approach, and policy-based nursing education system while the Philippines emphasized on three-pronged specialization, work-based, and linear approach nursing competency standards. The Australia and Philippine nursing competency trails a different path in adopting standards for nursing education system. The strengths and weaknesses of each national nursing competency standards were discussed.

Abstract

Background: A surgical procedure using general anaesthesia in laparotomy surgery results in reduced bowel sound. A large number of patients who experience a delay in returning bowel sound after laparotomy surgery become the reason to give proper intervention in order to increase bowel sound return time. One of the non-pharmacological interventions that can be used is chewing gum.Objective: The purpose of this study is to identify the difference of bowel sound return time between groups of intervention and control after being given chewing gum intervention among post-laparotomy surgery patients.Methods: This quasi-experimental study used post-test only control group design. Thirty respondents were selected by purposive sampling technique. Data were collected through observation by calculating the bowel sound return time among post laparotomy surgery patients in the intervention group (n=15) and control group (n=15), and were analyzed using the Mann Whitney test.  The intervention group was asked to chew the gum once for 30 minutes, and bowel sound was measured every 30 minutes for 120 minutes.Results: The results showed that bowel sound return time in the intervention group was 90 minutes and the control group was 150 minutes, and p-value was 0.005.Conclusion: There was a difference in the return time of bowel sound between the intervention and control groups. Therefore, the intervention of chewing gum could become one of the non- pharmacological interventions that can be considered in increasing the bowel sound return time among post-laparotomy surgery patients.

Abstract

Background: Treatment of children with cancer can affect daily lives of family caregivers. This can disrupt roles in social life, limit daily activities, disrupt health and physical and emotional balance as well as causing economic problems and creating poor quality of life.Objective: To describe the quality of life of family caregivers of children with leukemia based on characteristics of parents and children.Methods: This was a descriptive quantitative study. The population was all parents as the primary caregivers who had children aged 0-15 years diagnosed with leukemia in pediatric wards of Provincial General Hospital of Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung, Indonesia. Thirty-four respondents participated in this study selected using a total sampling. The quality of life of family caregivers was measured using the quality of life family version standard questionnaire, and the children's severity of leukemia was identified by the severity of illness scale standard questionnaire. Data were analyzed using frequency distribution, mean, and standard deviation.Results: The study results showed that family caregivers had poor quality of life (58.8%), with the worst sub-dimension including physical and psychological health conditions (55.9%), followed by social conditions (52.9%), and spiritual health conditions (50.0%). The majority of family caregivers who had the poorer quality of life were at the older age, male, having a primary education level, caring for their children for less than 12 months with severe leukemia, and having an average monthly income of fewer than 1.5 million rupiahs.Conclusion: Poor quality of life was identified among family caregivers of children with leukemia. Therefore, it is suggested for nurses to provide nursing care holistically not only for the children but also the families to increase their quality of life.

Abstract

Background: Developmental delays can be a basis for identifying children who may experience a disability. Accordingly, developmental screenings and monitoring are implemented to facilitate early identification of developmental disabilitiesObjective: To explore Indonesian?s community nurses? perceptions regarding their roles in the early identification and intervention of developmental disabilitiesMethod: This was a descriptive phenomenological study. Eleven community health nurses participated in a multiple semi-structured interview. Thematic analysis was used to analyse data.Findings: Four themes of nursing roles emerged, these include parents? expression of need, a focus on curative management, provision of nursing care and being alert to discuss a possible developmental delay. Indonesian nurses describe their roles as focusing on curative management and include monitoring child growth and nutritional status because they perceive these roles as the main program of the centres and as to fulfilling parents? expressions of needs, however they will raise concern when it is suspected or observed, that the child has delayed development.Conclusion: Child?s developmental surveillance has been implemented in developed countries as the basis to identify developmental disabilities earlier in children, however Indonesian nurses focus more on nutrition and eradicating communicable diseases rather than child?s developmental monitoring. More investigation is needed to find barriers of implementation of developmental screenings.

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a critical public health problem, and its prevalence in Indonesia remains high. Diabetes mellitus may cause complications, one of which is neuropathy that can impair foot sensitivity. This requires a treatment by doing diabetic foot exercises using sponges and paper.Objective: To examine the effectiveness of diabetic foot exercise using sponges and newspapers on foot sensitivity in patients with diabetes mellitus.Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study with pretest posttest with a control group research design, which was conducted at Public Health Center Depok III, Sleman Regency, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. An accidental sampling technique was used to select participants, with a total sample of 108 respondents consisting of 36 respondents in a control group, 36 respondents in a sponge group, and 36 respondents in a newspaper group. Data were analyzed using Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney test.Results: Among the three groups, only those who received foot exercises using sponges and newspapers had a significant effect on foot sensitivity (p <.05). However, there was no significant difference on the effect of foot exercise on foot sensitivity between sponges and newspapers group (p >.05).Conclusion: The use of sponges and newspapers in foot exercise could significantly improve foot sensitivity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is therefore recommended for nurses to provide the foot exercise as a part of nursing practice in both hospitals and community health centers.
