    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The Businco Transplant Program undertook the JACIE standards accreditation process since January 2010. The process is here analyzed by a descriptive-exploratory quantitative study to verify the hypothesis that accreditation according to the standard JACIE improves health professionals performance and organization output. Methods: An analysis was performed before starting the whole process. An analysis of the planning, programming and implementation of actions was carried out. Data analysis focuses on the organizational and structural changes, training, and preparation of documentation, implementation and verification of objectives achievement. The data refer to the period between January 2010 and October 2012. Results: A dedicated team was set up, an implementation plan and process map was developed. A Quality Management System was also implemented. This included: risk management, audit and quality indicators. Conclusions: Despite the difficulties the JACIE accreditation process has been useful for integration and professional collaboration. Education of the staff has played a key role in the implementation of the whole system and in particular for the quality management system.

    ABSTRACT: Prevention and health promotion are based on the amendment of unhealthy lifestyles. The purpose of this work is to identify and highlight unhealthy habits and behaviours of nursing students and nurses professionals, in order to explore possible correlations between unhealthy choices and culture, knowledge and skills in health education. The study population is represented by three separate samples: a) Students from high schools in the province of Pistoia, b) Nursing Undergraduate students of the University of Florence (campus of Pistoia), c) Nurses employed within the Health Services 3 of Pistoia. Investigated behaviours were smoking and alcohol habits, painkiller and inflammatory consumption. Data gathered through the questionnaires were useful to identify and classify educational needs for each of the three samples . This study helps to bring out important aspects of nurses' role on health promotion within the society.

    ABSTRACT: ICNP is a standardized nursing terminology included within acknowledged terminologies by WHO, it is a relevant aspect of ICN programs and strategies. This paper aims to describe structure and characteristics of ICNP terminology as well as to highlight how this tool can be useful both in practice and in terms of nursing professional development. This version looks like a pyramid with seven axes describing different areas of nursing and related interventions, enriched by two special axes related to pre-coordinated Diagnosis / Outcomes (DC) and Operations (IC) which facilitate daily use in practice. In order to clarify how this tool can be actually be used in daily nursing practice some examples are provided, clarifying how adopting the current version of ICNP terminology (2015 release) Diagnosis/Outcomes and Interventions can be built. The ICNP Italian Centre is committed to introduce it to Italian nurses as a tool for sharing and disseminating terminology in our Country, having as main final aim to achieve even in Italy, professional visibility objectives promoted in different ways by the International Council of Nurses.

    ABSTRACT: This narrative review aimed to synthetize the results of the main studies analysing nurses' experience of stalking in different clinical settings. We searched the electronic databases MEDLINE (through PubMed), CINAHL (through EBSCOhost) and the search engine "Google Scholar". Searches were limited to articles published in English and Italian, and published between 1999 and 2013. Stalking refers to a behavioural pattern characterized by persistent unwanted communications and contacts imposed to another person, which, consequently suffer from distress, fear, and anxiety. Several studies explored the risk of stalking in healthcare system, especially in doctors and psychiatrists. Some authors analysed nurses' experience of stalking with particular attention to mental health professionals as a group category with an increased risk of stalking by patients. Results of some studies carried out in different clinical settings (medical and surgical areas, and other healthcare settings) also revealed, even if in a minority, the presence of this phenomenon, showing the presence of staking's behaviours by patients and healthcare colleagues too. However, more researches with large sample size are needed to better understand the phenomenon of stalking in nurses working in different clinical areas.

    ABSTRACT: Distraction is a non-pharmacological intervention aimed to reduce procedural pain in children. Venipuncture is one of the most widely used diagnostic and therapeutic procedure in pediatric patients. Analgesia during venipuncture may be efficiently achieved with distracting techniques. To describe active and passive distraction techniques to reduce distress in children undergoing venipuncture. Data from CINHAL, PubMed, ILISI and Cochrane's databases were used to review existing literature and primary and secondary studies published between 2003 and 2014 were included. Queries were obtained with keywords such as distraction, complementary therapies, pain, pediatric, the Boolean operators AND and OR were used. Twenty eligible articles out of the one hundred and forty-three retrieved (20/143) were selected; among these there were 3 systematic and 5 narrative reviews, 11 experimental and quasi-experimental studies and 1 observational study. Active and passive distraction techniques seemed extremely effective to reduce distress and pain in children undergoing venipuncture. Modest evidence of efficacy and absent side effects support this approach. Further RCTs are needed to compare the different types of existing active and passive distraction techniques. The presence of parents and the location where painful procedures are administered should be included in the assessment of this approach.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of the study is to measure 3rd year students' ability on decision making before and after the internship, where different educational strategies were experienced evaluating self perceived clients satisfaction. This is a quasi-experimental pre-post intervention study 14 students of the 3rd year was asked to elaborate six clinical cases, for a total of 84 health care plans both before and after the clinical internship. During the internship discussions led by tutors, briefing and debriefing sessions once a week were set up and health care plans developed by students were used. The Newcastle Satisfaction with Nursing Scales questionnaire was used to detect clients satisfaction administered both during the internship and later on. Students have shown an increase from 19 to 69% in the ability to detect priority health care problems in the post-test as well as in developing correct nursing interventions, from 24 to 33%.Related factors and defining characteristics are improved at the limit of statistical significance. Clients claim they were fully satisfied with received care both with nursing students and without. Experimented educational strategies seems to be significantly related to the ability of nursing intervention/decision making. The internship has proven to be an effective model of education.

    ABSTRACT: Il presente studio descrive le valutazioni sulle competenze relazionali, tecnico-operative e organizzative dei Neolaureati magistrali in Scienze infermieristiche e ostetriche, espresse da questi e da parte dei ruoli professionali maggiormente implicati nella loro socializzazione lavorativa: i Dirigenti e i Coordinatori infermieristici. A tal fine è stata condotta una ricerca di natura qualitativa. E' stato individuato un campione di convenienza di 19 intervistati: 6 Coordinatori, 3 Dirigenti infermieristici e 10 Neolaureati magistrali in scienze infermieristiche e ostetriche; al quale è stata proposta un'intervista semistrutturata (costruita ad hoc). Le interviste sono state audioregistrate e trascritte. Sul corpus del testo è stata condotta un'analisi di contenuto, mediante apposito software, rispetto ai tre ruoli coinvolti. I contenuti espressi dai 3 profili intervistati sono convergenti. I risultati evidenziano la necessità di una migliore formazione per i Neolaureati alla relazione e alla comunicazione sia con i pazienti e i loro familiari, sia con i colleghi. Emerge inoltre la difficoltà per i colleghi già inseirti nei contesti lavorativi di accettare le innovazioni tecniche e organizzative proposte dai Neolaureati, e la necessità di un orientamento del percorso di studio magistrale verso una migliore socializzazione e integrazione professionale. Lo studio consente di individuare azioni mirate ad una migliore socializzazione e inserimento professionale dei Neolaureati avvalendosi dei contributi delle figure professionali direttamente coinvolte in questa interfaccia organizzativa. Infine, suggerisce azioni positive sul versante degli studi universitari e sui contesti organizzativi della professione infermieristica.

    ABSTRACT: The "Human Caring" model is a philosophy of care based on individual centrality and which, although developed within nursing discipline, could be used by all professionals who take care of individuals. Nurses who work within the field of Mental Health, is subjected to a considerable emotional burden and it is believed that the introduction of this model can have a positive impact. To evaluate the effects of the introduction of the model Human Caring in the Department of Mental Health Asl Cuneo 1, in order to improve health care professionals' well-being and patients' perception with respect to care and assistance. A pre and post intervention design approach with control group where variables were measured before (T0) and after (T1) the implementation of the model of care Human Caring. 80 health care professionals and 125 clients were observed. Results show a non statistically significant difference between the pre and post test both for health care professionals and clients. Human Caring model does not seem to have a positive impact in the short term. However, it is arguably a protective action for health care professionals that further studies should deeply explore with longer period of follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: Interrumption that occur during nursing practice are hazardous for patient safety, resulting in a heavy cognitive load for the health care professionals and increases the risk of making mistakes. An observational study was carried out in UU.OO operation of Neurosurgery and Vascular Surgery at a hospital in Liguria. The observation lasted one months, from July 1st, 2012 to August 1st, 2012. For data collection were used three form, one for each work shift, in which each health care professional had to report what activity was interrupted and why. A total of 7744 interruptium (in 5676 in Neurosurgery and 2068 Vascular Surgery). The major source of interruption was the bell, followed by the phone and relatives' questions. In general, activities interrupted were mainly made beds / hygiene care, administration and preparation of medication, handover and completion of the nursing documentation CONCLUSIONS: Interrumption will be an inevitable part of nursing practice, because of its very nature. It is therefore necessary to intervene on interruptions deemed avoidable and organizational variables that generate them, in order to increase patient safety and improve care activities.

    ABSTRACT: Among different methods of nursing classification, the Index of Caring Complexity (ICC) is a management tool to evaluate appropriateness of nursing procedures, integrate health-care support workers and to monitor the need of nursing staff. The objective of this observational study was to apply the ICC method in a surgical ward of the Marche Region (Italy), to determine the nursing staff level. From 1 January to 30 April 2010, all data of patients admitted for more than 48 hours were collected. The determination of nursing staff level derived from the five patient classification on the basis of the complexity/gravity "scores" of data flow obtained during the caring process. The ICC method showed a staffing of 11 nurses: a staff shortage of three nurse, if compared to the actual staff. The ICC method also demonstrate its strength as a useful tool to reorganize care. The ICA showed that the most frequent nursing activities :"Apply postures to facilitate breathing "(83%),"Prepare/provide appropriate foods in temperature/texture/quantity "(100%); "Providing aids for elimination needs" (80.7%); "Help in dressing" (82.7%); "Transfer from stretcher to bed" (83.4%); "Remaking bed/unit sick" (100%); "Monitoring of vital signs" (100%); "Health Education" (100%); "Nursing Assessment" (100%); "Management and treatment of intravascular devices" (100%); "Performing instrumental exams". Assess the most frequent nursing activities, allows: to better distribute activities among professionals, identify nurses' competencies and activities to be prescribed to health-care support workers.
