An investigation into nurses' anxiety when dealing with HIV patients

Dias, Giuliana Zorrer 06 1900 (has links)
The aim of the study was to test the hypothesis developed by the author which states that most of the variation in nurses' anxiety when dealing with HIV/AIDS patients can be explained by the combination of the variables Knowledge on HIV, Judgement of Risk, Homophobia, Death Anxiety and Perceived Social Support. 72 nurses representing two state hospitals and one private hospital volunteered to participate in the study, and completed questionnaires. Contrary to the findings in the literature study, the nurses in the sample were not found to be reluctant or anxious when caring for HIV/AIDS patients. A multiple regression analysis revealed that the hypothesis is confirmed, that the independent variables explain some variation (R = 0.649) in the dependent variable to a significant degree. There are indications that uninvestigated variables are however also at play, and should be considered for future research. / Psychology / M.A. (Psychology)

Perceptions and experiences of a multicultural peri operative nursing team in a middle Eastern hospital

Nortje, Louise 03 1900 (has links)
Thesis (MCur)--Stellenbosch University, 2012. / ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The researcher has identified in her place of work that the multicultural views and work experience of the staff negatively impacts on optimal team coherence and patient care. Given the pivotal role that teamwork plays in an OR, it is required of the peri-operative (PO) nurses working in a Middle Eastern hospital, to develop a high cultural sensitivity and awareness of each other's values. The goal of the study through the hermeneutic inquiry was to identify the PO participants’ meanings of their perceptions and experiences within a multicultural workforce in the OR environment. A phenomenological interpretative research design was used to illuminate the phenomenon of team coherence and to answer the question, “What are the perceptions and experiences of a multicultural PO nursing team in a Middle Eastern hospital.” A purposive sample of n=13 was drawn from a population of 107 PO nurses. A semi-structured interview guide was designed and validated before data collection. Ethical approval and permission to conduct the research was obtained from the Ethics Committee at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch and the Institutional Review Board of the Hospital. The data that emerged from the data analysis was coded and categorized into themes and constitute patterns. The four patterns were multiculturalism within PO nurse teams contributes to complex group dynamics; the pervasive influence of the medical model and power struggle on group cohesion; dominance renders the PO nurses powerless; and empowerment is the panacea to improving team communication. The researcher compiled a written account of the interpretations that emerged from the data analysis and verified it with an external research reviewer. In, addition, member checking was done on two (2) of the participants from the individual interviews to validate the transcribed data. The Conceptual Theoretical Framework of Habermas on Critical Social Theory and Freire’s model of Oppressed Group Behavior supports the findings of the study. The findings suggest that cultural values clarification should change the behavior of the PO nurses and team building activities should enhance group cohesion. Policies on disruptive behavior will create an awareness to illuminate fear and reiterate selfworth. However, empowerment through education, reflection in action and active communication was to liberate powerless PO nurses in a multicultural environment. The pervasive influence of the medical model can be overcome with strong leadership. Furthermore, culturally sensitive leadership might be essential to sustain a supportive and growth producing culture. Further research is recommended. / AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: In die navorsers' werksarea het sy geindentifiseer dat die multikultirele uitkyk en werkservaring van die personeel optimale span koheise en pasientsorg negatief beinvloed. Gegee die deurslaggewende rol wat spanwerk in die operasiesaal speel, word dit van die teater verpleegkundiges in n hospitaal in die Midde Ooste verwag om n hoe kulturele sensitiwiteit te kweek. Die doel van die studie, deur hermeneutiese navraag, was om die persepsies en ervaringe van multikulturele PO verpleegkundiges in die operasiesaal te identifiseer. n Kwalitatiewe benadering met n fenomenologiese interpreterende navorsingsonderwerp was toegepas om die fenomenoom van span kohesie te illumineer deur die vraag te beantwoord, " Wat is die persepsies en ervaringe van 'n multikulturele PO verpleegspan in a hospitaal in die Midde Ooste". n Doelbewuste steekproef van n=13 is geneem vanuit n totale bevolking van 107 teater verpleegkundiges. n Semi-gestruktureerde onderhoudsgids was ontwerp en geldig verklaarg voor die insameling van data. Etiese goedkeuring vir die studie was verkry van die Etiese Komitee van die Fakultiet van Gesondheidswetenskappe, Stellenbosch Universiteit. Goedkeuring om die navorsing te doen, was verkry van die IRB, en toestemming was op skrif geplaas. Die data wat voortspruit uit die analise, was geenkodeer en gekategoriseer in temas en omvattende patrone. Die vier (4) pattrone was, multikulturalisme dra by tot komplekse groep dinamika te midde van die teater verpleegkundiges; die persewerende invloed van die mediese model en onderlinge struweling op groeps kohesie; dominering veroorsaak weerlose teater verpleegkundiges; en bemagtiging is die redding om komminuksie in die span te bewerkstellig. Die navorser het n geskrewe verslag saamgestel van die weergawe van die data analise en is deur n eksterne navorsingskundige geverifieer. Bykomend is kontrole van lede van twee (2) van die deelnemers vanuit die individuele onderhoude gedoen, om die getransskribeerde data se geldigheid te verklaar. Die Konseptuele Teoretiese Raamwerk van Habermas se Kritiese Sosiale Teorie en Freire se model van onderdrukte groeps gedrag het die bevinding van hierdie studie gerigsteun. Die bevindinge beveel aan dat kulturele waarde uitklaring gedrag sal verander, en spanbou aktiwiteite groeps kohesie sal bewerkstellig. Die opstel van beleide wat ontwrigte gedrag identifiseer om sodoende 'n bewustheid te kweek wat vrees verminder en selfwaardigheid herstel. Bemagtiging, deur onderrig, refleksie in aksie en aktiewe kommunikasie was as sleutel elemente aangewys om weerlose PO verpleegkunidiges werksaam in die multikulturele omgewing, te bevry. Die aanhoudende invloed van die mediese model kan oorkom word deur sterk leierskap. Voorts mag kulturele sensitiewe leierskap essentiel wees om n ondersteunende, produserende en groeiende kultueer te bewerkstellig. Verdere navorsing word aanbeveel.

CAREER CHOICE IN NURSING: FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH LONGEVITY.

PUTZIER, DONNAJO HOLMES. January 1983 (has links)
This study was designed to identify the factors that influence an individual's length of employment in the field of nursing following graduation from a baccalaureate program. Subjects were classified as drop-outs or active, and compared with reference to personal, academic, and social variables. The data used for this study were compiled by the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972. Subjects were measured at five separate intervals, beginning in 1972 and ending in 1979. Data collection instruments included the use of questionnaires and completion of a short test measuring verbal and nonverbal ability. Multiple correlation was used to identify those independent variables which were statistically linked. From this, a profile was developed and submitted to multiple regression analysis in order to define a prediction equation. A discriminant function analysis was performed to determine how well the variables were able to distinguish group membership. The results of this study indicate that academic variables are among the best predictors of length of employment in the field of nursing following graduation. Specifically, college grades are shown to be the best predictor in the early college years. As the student nears graduation, academic variables become less important and social variables become more important in the prediction of length of employment. Accurate prediction occurs in approximately 70% of the cases classified. These results would support the present practice of using grades as selection criteria in schools of nursing. While the social and personal variables did not have as much influence on length of employment as the academic variables, prediction efficiency was hindered by the number of variables under consideration and the small sample size. It is recommended that the study by replicated with a reduced number of variables and a larger sample.

The effect of clinical practice on empathy in BSU students and graduates of religiously related and nonreligiously related schools

Bence, Carol J. 03 June 2011 (has links)
The present study investigated the relationship between the effect of clinical practice on empathy in BSN students and graduates in religiously and nonreligiously related programs. The non-experimental survey used a non-probability, convenience sample including 156 student and graduate nurses from two BSN programs. The subjects completed the Empathy Construct Rating Scale, a self-administered questionnaire demonstrating a high degree of validity and reliability. The results indicated no statistically significant correlation between the length of practice and empathy among students, first year, and fourth year graduates. Also, no statistically significant difference existed between the empathy scores of students and graduates from a religiously related and a nonreligiously related school. The conclusions drawn from this study are that there is no relationship between empathy and length of practice, nor is empathy related to the religious orientation of the nursing program.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306
