May Read about increasing physical activity in cardiac patients, depression in the elderly, and end-of-life care for diverse patient groups. Across all of its scientific focus areas, NINR emphasizes the important contributions of scientific program partnerships with underrepresented and minority communities.
Maslach C, Jackson SE. February Research National institute of nursing research this month include preterm birth in Hispanic women, HIV prevention, and motor problems in children born prematurely.
Am J Crit Care. Most hospitals have transitioned to a regular use of the twelve-hour shift. The Joint Commission recommended nine evidence-based actions, including assessment of off-shift hours and consecutive shifts worked, and the inclusion of staff in the design of work schedules to reduce risk for fatigue.
ANA; [cited Oct 10]. But we also found that the nurses who worked shifts of 12—13 hours were more likely to intend to leave the job than nurses who worked shorter shifts, contrary to what the literature suggests. Notably, having higher proportions of nurses working shorter shifts—8—9 hours or 10—11 hours—resulted in decreases in patient dissatisfaction.
A change from 0 percent to 40 percent of nurses working those shifts would result in nearly a five-percentage-point increase in the patients who gave the hospital a low rating.
March Research highlights include topics such as high blood pressure, gender differences in the perception of MI symptoms, pain, palliative care, and premature birth.
Health Aff Millwood ;28 4: Hospitals that do not require overtime but are short staffed may also face quality-of-care issues.
We also found that, despite poor nurse outcomes associated with longer shift lengths, nurses seem to be satisfied with their schedules. Ultimately, the goal is to advance research funding to ensure the training of scientists at a time of major scientific breakthroughs and to promote the updated NINR strategic plan that specifies how nurse scientists improve the well-being of Americans across the human lifespan.
Nursing research programs were also funded and research information was exchanged across the country. From childbirth to end-of-life care, nursing research is aimed at helping patients across the entire lifespan, notes Dr. August Recent nursing research topics include sleep in patients with cancer, improving surgical outcomes by improving nurse staffing, and adolescent obesity.
Nurse working conditions and patient safety outcomes. We found a number of significant relationships between the other shift length categories and patient satisfaction. Res Sociol Health Care. Later that evening, FNINR hosted a reception to continue the discussion about how nursing improves health care and impact lives.
Nurse working conditions, including shift length, is one area related to these benchmarks that we believe is readily amenable to change. As our national health care system continues to evolve, it is clear that nurses at every level are playing a vital part in many traditional and emerging health care venues.
From premature infants in neonatal intensive care units, to adolescents living with diabetes, to elderly cancer survivors coping with pain, nursing research develops the science to help people strengthen the quality of their lives. In sum, our results suggest that patients perceive worse care overall and in nursing-specific domains in hospitals that have high proportions of nurses working shifts of more than thirteen hours.
Open in a separate window Linda H. Linda Aiken is the Claire M. We hope you will join us in our efforts this year by helping us bring research and science to the forefront of the conversation about health care for the future.
