Caring in clinical practice: experiences and perceptions of learner midwives

Chokwe, M, Wright, S 31 October 2011 (has links)
Abstract Background. There is a growing concern about the lack of caring in midwifery clinical practice. In addition findings of studies exploring health-seeking behaviours in South Africa indicated the abuse of the pregnant women by midwives as the most important reason causing a delay in seeking health care.Objective. To explore the experiences and perceptions of the learner midwives of caring as exhibited by qualified midwives during midwifery clinical practice.Methods. A qualitative and phenomenological study was done. Ethical clearance was granted by the university and the managers of the hospitals where the Baccalaureus Technologiae II and III learner midwives were placed for work-integrated learning. Three self-report techniques used were diaries, debriefing sessions with reflection and focus group.Findings. Data from 48 diaries and two focus groups were analysed using a qualitative approach. Care of the women and midwife-related themes emerged, each with caring and uncaring as major categories. The findings illustrated that the learner midwives were familiar with and internalised the meaning of caring from the theoretical facilitation, however they did not always experience caring in midwifery clinical practice. Some of the midwives were caring, but the majority did not role model commitment, competence, compassion, confidence and communication.Implication for practice. Managers must be held accountable for setting, implementing and maintaining caring standards in the healthcare institutions. Furthermore, there is a need to emphasise the importance of role modelling and ensure that the affective aspect of caring is communicated to the learner midwives during theoretical facilitation and clinical practice.

Hair, art, and identity

Coleman, Christina Blair 22 August 2012 (has links)
The purpose of this report is to discuss the artwork I have produced over the past three years while in attendance at The University of Texas at Austin. My artwork consists of sculptures, drawings, and installations that investigate certain aspects of the politics of black hair as they relate to my identity as an African American woman. These aspects are intimacy, beauty standards, and empowerment. I use hair and hair care products as my materials with which to create. I specifically focus on hair care products which I used when I was a young girl including Blue Magic hair grease and barrettes, products which for many black women are associated with childhood. My aim is to create artwork that changes hair and hair care products from mundane grooming tools into valuable cultural artifacts. / text

En kvalitativ studie om hur patienter upplever sin hemodialysbehandling.

Rundqvist, Gunilla, Wallner, Emma January 2009 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to describe how patients with hemodialysis experience their dialysis treatment. The study was conducted as a qualitative descriptive design. The study is based on six interviews. The interviews were transcribed in their entirety and analyzed according to content analysis inspired by Granheim and Lundman. The result is based on five categories; Stress and requirements, Life-supporting haemodialysis treatment, physical impairments, social constraints and a positive view on haemodialysis. Dialysis Patients experienced different matters from physical symptoms like feeling dizziness, headache and fatigue to feeling that life was limited in time, social interaction and energy. They also reported different experiences regarding their relationships with medical staff and other patients. The results obtained in this study shows that there should be spending more time and understanding on how patients experience their haemodialysis treatment in order to increase understanding and to master the situation by the staff and also to help patients. The study has also revealed that some patients feel persuaded by staff to perform as much of their treatment by themselves as possible. There are a lot of research about the haemodialysis treatment method, but very limited on how patients feel about their treatment and therefore it is needed more research in the experiences of dialysis to improve health care and nursing care. / Sammanfattning Syftet med den här studien var att beskriva hur patienter med hemodialys upplever sin dialysbehandling. Studien genomfördes som kvalitativ med beskrivande design. Studien baseras på sex intervjuer. Intervjuerna har transkriberats i sin helhet och analyserats enligt innehållsanalys inspirerad av Granheim och Lundman. Resultatet bygger på fem kategorier som är; Stress och krav, Livsuppehållande hemodialysbehandling, kroppsliga nedsättningar, sociala begränsningar och positiv anblick på hemodialys behandling. Dialyspatienterna upplevde olika saker så som fysiska symptom som att känna yrsel, huvudvärk och trötthet, till att känna att livet blev begränsat i tid, social samvaro och energi. De uppgav också olika upplevelser angående deras relationer med sjukvårdspersonal och övriga patienter. Det resultat som framkommer i denna studie visar att det borde läggas ned mer tid och förståelse för hur patienter med hemodialys upplever sin behandling. För att öka förståelsen och kunna bemästra situationen som personal och även kunna hjälpa patienterna. I studien har det även framkommit att vissa av patienterna känner sig övertalade av personalen att kunna utföra så mycket av sin behandling själv. Det sker mycket forskning omkring behandlingsformen hemodialys, men väldigt begränsat om hur patienterna upplever sin behandling och därför behövs mer forskning inom upplevelser inom dialys för att förbättra vården och omvårdnaden.
