Abstract

While healthcare institutions around the world strive to adopt evidence-based practice (EBP) as the new standard in best practice, the nursing profession still faces multiple barriers and limitations in implementation. The aim of this paper is to present the analysis of EBP from the perspective of nurses working within two major South Australian hospitals, assessing their implementation and beliefs and exploring avenues for further research-based upon their feedback. A descriptive survey using the EBP beliefs (EBP-b) and the EBP implementation (EBP-I) scales were developed by Melnyk and Fineout-Overholt. Nurses scored high in the EBP belief scale reflecting significant positive readiness towards EBP. A positive correlation was observed between EBP beliefs and implementation, yet implementation rates were very low. More research is needed to explore the reasons why implementation rates are so low amongst practising nurses to understand and address the root of this problem. Based on the evidence it appears that more research is needed to explore the reasons why implementation rates are so low amongst practising nurses to understand and address the root of this problem.

Abstract

A competent nursing graduate is required to perform psychomotor skills related to clinical procedures, articulate knowledge to support their activities, work in a team with efficient time management skills and have strategies to perform in the increasingly busy clinical environment and with complex patient acuity. Student Evaluation of Teaching data from an undergraduate nursing clinical subject 2014-2018 identified an inconsistency in clinical skill teaching/delivery by educators which needed to be addressed. This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of implementing the Clinical Skill Storybook as an additional teaching resource for students’ clinical skill development. A descriptive analysis approach was applied to summarise quantitative and qualitative subject evaluation data along with Clinical Skill Storybook evaluation questionnaires (2018-2020). Data analysis identified five themes: (1) Clinical Skill Storybook as a Learning Resource, (2) Self-directed learning and peer support, (3) Developing clinical skill competency, (4) Preparation for clinical placement, and (5) Maintaining teaching consistency. It was evident that the Clinical Skill Storybook provided an easy-to-follow visual guide which assisted students’ confidence and competence of skill development. The subject evaluation highlights that students were significantly more satisfied with the teaching resources than in previous years. The implementation of the Clinical Skill Storybook actively improved students’ skill acquisition, confidence, and readiness for placement. The findings indicated that picture-based resources such as the Clinical Skill Storybook are beneficial for nursing students’ clinical skill development. Further involvement with stakeholders such as clinical venues in developing the clinical skill storybook is planned for future exploration.

Abstract

Individuals who become elderly will experience physical changes from their initial body condition to being very weak. The declining conditions experienced by the elderly tend to cause physical and psychological health problems and dissatisfaction in life. The purpose of this study is to analyze counseling and dhikr intervention on the attitude of self-acceptance of the elderly. An experimental design using pre-test and post-test control groups was conducted among 30 elderly people living in nursing homes with the inclusion criteria of being able to communicate well, not deaf, not cognitively impaired, or depressed. Participants were randomly allocated, to the intervention group at Nursing Home of Jambangan and the control group at Nursing Home of Hargo Dedali in Surabaya Indonesia. Measurement of self-acceptance was carried out twice through a questionnaire, namely before the counseling and dhikr intervention and 8 weeks after. Data were analyzed using paired t-test. The results showed that there is pre-post differences in the group that received counseling and dhikr intervention (p-value = 0.000). The participants in the intervention group showed an increase in self-acceptance while in the control group there is no significant difference with a p-value of 0.937. Religious support for dhikr and counseling needs to be carried out intensively for the elderly as religious activities can provide a sense of peace, surrender, and surrender to Allah Almighty. The combination of counseling and dhikr is an effort to improve oneself spiritually and has a positive correlation with the attitude of self-acceptance of the elderly living in nursing homes. Institutions where services for the elderly can contribute to the elderly living in nursing homes by carrying out programmatic activities, namely counseling, especially for the elderly who have just entered special institutions for the elderly, spiritual approaches also need to be improved both in groups and individuals such as prayer, dhikr, and worship. others according to ability. A very important contribution is the guidance carried out by cleric so that elderly worship is more focused. This is an effort so that the elderly can accept the conditions they are facing and can accept themselves living in the orphanage.
