    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: 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: 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: 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.

    ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION In literature there are few studies on denied nursing communication/relationship and why this communication/relationship is avoided. GOALS. Evaluate criticism in communication/relationship in nursing in order to build an analytical basis for further study. MATERIAL AND METHODS. Participant observation during internship placements, diary and notes taken during the observation, furthermore the whole work context as well as the relationship in a internal medicine department were taken into consideration. RESULTS. In the majority of cases communication is avoided, reducing the time of contact with patients, in others it is sought even when not expressly required by the patient. CONCLUSIONS. Escape relationship may be an indicator of professional insecurity. The denied relationship is a mirror in which the practitioner finds its weaknesses. Considering these elements promotes the therapeutic path. The study gave interesting and relevant insights which can be considered as starting point for further research on the field with a wider sample.
