A teaching method comprises the principles and methods used for instruction to be implemented by teachers to achieve the desired learning in students. These strategies are determined partly on subject matter to be taught and partly by the nature of the learner. Nursing is a multidimensional technique, a science and an art. Based on this fact, what is the best method of teaching in nursing?

Interprofessional education is important for healthcare system as it is a team work. Looking for ideas / methods which are effective in improving interprofessional skills in healthcare education.
Relevant answer
Answer
This is a wonderful question. I typically use focused mentoring within an inter professional team. The interprofessional team research provides a setting where students, fellows, and other trainees gain first hand experience in needed skills such as building and engaging team members, holding colleagues accountable for promised work, negotiating roles and responsibilities on a project, presentation, or paper, and handling disciplinary differences in academic support for team science, culture and communication patterns, and measures of success, .
As challenges emerge, I try to provide opportunities for discussion of both the rewards and challenges of interprofessional team work. More recently, I have been interested in developing resources for trainees in the most important skills needed for interprofessional teams.
Looking for suggestions on resouces for interprofessional training, including any curriculum development on training in interprofessional team research and any program that involve explicit training in the important knowledge and skill domains needed for interprofessional team research.

Students enrolled in nursing programs, especially programs offered for nurse practitioners and advanced nursing specialists, could adopt this philosophy by incorporating elements of both Eastern healing and Western medicine. This would expand their understanding of the fascinating world of Eastern medicine. Through this learning experience, they will discover the value of well-rounded treatment approaches that address the mental and spiritual elements that often give way to physical suffering. Nurses in Australia should embrace the philosophy and practices of TCM and include acupuncture as an additional skill. This would allow them to build upon their already impressive capacity in the nursing industry.
What is your view on this?
Relevant answer
Answer
These days patients often ask health care providers about TCM. Therefore, curriculum for training health care providers should have at least basic content about TCM.

Outcomes of clinical teaching include knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are acquired through clinical teaching and learning. Current nursing education program accreditation criteria focus on evidence that meaningful outcomes of learning have been produced. The effectiveness of clinical teaching can be judged on the extent to which it produces intended learning outcomes
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree also a great question. How can clinical nurse educators prove their worth? 
I think that Charlene Chu is suggesting the measuring work performance (in all of its dimensions) to determine an increase. This would be measuring changed behaviour and this confounds a few issues. What leads to changed behaviour? Knowledge and motivation. 
For example if a nurse educator delivered an education on how to perform a skill, but the nurses did not value the skill because there was insufficient perceived benefit, then the change in behaviour (measured through performance) is unlikely to be significant.
However, if you simply measured the nurses confidence and self-efficacy in their acquisition of the knowledge learned, then a separate translational study can be conducted as follow up.

The obvious choice of approach for the question you have posed would be a qualitative design using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (Smith et al).  This would involve using a semi-structured interview format to talk with a number of individuals who meet your inclusion criteria (ie nurses - you might want to specify level of experience or qualification; who are expats - you may want to specify originating country and country of current practice; nature of the 'special population').   An example of this approach being used for a related question can be found in the attached publication.

Answer
Thanks to all for your comments. I had gone through the links that you have sent.. For an undergraduate curriculum in Community Medicine, the core competencies would be, (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4347100/)
  • Understanding of the concept of health and disease.
  • Understanding of demography, population dynamics and disease burden in the national and global context.
  • Comprehension of principles of health economics and hospital management.
However, I would like to enquire about core competencies other than the aforementioned. Moreover, the list does not include basics of general epidemiology, which is an important part of what we teach.

We think that the SAQ is not a sensitive instrument for measuring effects by SBAR communication in a pre-post-survey. Many items are not suitable or too general. For example, there are only items for handoff communication (shift change), but we will integrate SBAR in postsurgical communication.

I am not sure about fall risk monitoring but I can tell you my observation from psychiatry filed. The initial response for the video-monitoring and recording of patients' area was always negative, but, when it in place, multiple cases of violence in mental health area (emergency department, psychiatric intensive care and general floor), actually, helped to protect staff legally each time when patient or his / her family decided to complain, as each time we saw a proper conduct from the staff site and extreme behavior dis-regulation from the patients' site. Therefore, usually, some time after the installation of the video monitoring (and recording) system, nursing staff like and appreciate it as a part of protection for the liability.

Governments are cutting nursing posts and lowering down nursing education, below the European Directive 55. How can we stop this trend. What evidence do we have to convince politicians to invest in the nursing workforce?
Health Ministers, Education Ministers develop new roles in nursing, assistants to nurses, to make it all cheaper.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Paul
Before asking how we can stop this trend (a political / campaigning question) we should stop to ask if we should. In this regard I think it is extremely important to note
i) emerging evidence that having both more and more highly educated registered nurses in hospitals improves outcomes / reduces harms... it's not the only evidence and it's not definitive but the obvious source is:
Aiken, L. H., Sloane, D. M., Bruyneel, L., Van den Heede, K., Griffiths, P., Busse, R., . . . Lesaffre, E. (2014). Nurse staffing and education and hospital mortality in nine European countries: a retrospective observational study. Lancet, 383. doi:10.1016/s0140-6736(13)62631-8
ii) All the evidence associating nurse numbers with patient safety has focussed on registered nurse staffing. There is relatively little evidence on "nurses" or assistants with lower levels of qualification and what there is suggests that they are NOT associated with the improvements in patient outcomes seen with higher nurse staffing levels and indeed there is some evidence of harm
Griffiths, P., Ball, J., Drennan, J., Dall'Ora, C., Jones, J., Maruotti, A., . . . Simon, M. (2016). Nurse staffing and patient outcomes: Strengths and limitations of the evidence to inform policy and practice. A review and discussion paper based on evidence reviewed for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence Safe Staffing guideline development. International Journal of Nursing Studies, 63, 213-225. doi:10.1016/j.ijnurstu.2016.03.012
Griffiths, P., Ball, J., Murrells, T., Jones, S., & Rafferty, A. M. (2016). Registered nurse, healthcare support worker, medical staffing levels and mortality in English hospital trusts: a cross-sectional study. BMJ Open, 6(2), e008751. doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2015-008751
Some of the economic modelling studies also suggests that reducing skill mix is the least cost effective solution....
Studies looking at the implementation of assistants as an additional role in Australia do not lend much support...
Twigg, D. E., Myers, H., Duffield, C., Pugh, J. D., Gelder, L., & Roche, M. (2016). The impact of adding assistants in nursing to acute care hospital ward nurse staffing on adverse patient outcomes: An analysis of administrative health data.

One thing you don't learn in nursing school is project management. Or do you? Although nurses may not receive formal training on business topics, there are many skills you do learn that can help you conceive and manage projects in the workplace. In fact, the nursing process provides an ideal background for using project management techniques. The nursing process incorporates a systematic method of assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation.
Relevant answer
Answer
It is essential for nurses especially in managerial positions to learn project management because nurses do project management e.g. when an infectious patient is admitted like with typhoid, As nurse manager immediately you have an objective to prevent cross infection from time of admission to time of discharge. Here we have input that is patient with typhoid and output patient recover without contaminating other patients, staff and visitors. Resources are used for isolation like human resource, skills knowledge, equipment. To get these resources there is cost involve so how much is the patient/ government going to pay for this service. Therefore in your unit budget how much will be used to care for this patient with typhoid and how long will it take to treat the patient. The process used to take care of this patient has all the elements of project management: Time, quality, scope and cost. We implement project management but we do not interpret it as project management. I think for one to understand PM it is better to study it as PM not as Nursing PM.

Relevant answer
Answer
hello there, 
I just want to say..your question got me confused, because it has two main parts:
1. perception of nurses towards EOL decisions
2. desicioin making at EOL, but such decisions are made by patients themselves ( right...we advocate for what patients want, and not try to be paternalistic)
so, are you trying to find out nurses perception only as in ethical reasoning ...OR, their perception of EOL decisions made by patients ? like thier reaction or implication to patients requests near time of death?
part of what I have practiced, and currently teaching is ethical decision making in EOL field ...the perception of nurses is quite dependent on thier understanding of ethical principles and theories, and finally law system and regulatoring policies,and how to apply them...but if you are asking about perception ( I would prefer the word attitude) towards patients` decisions at EOL.
i have few good articles on hand, if you can be more exact on what you are looking for, I may be able to help you with some  literature.

I have a HRSA Advanced Nursing Education grant, looking at the development of IPE/IPCP.  I'm looking for global partners to help broaden my understanding (and even perhaps engage in scholarly work together?), that I can bring back to our classrooms.  I am the Coordinator of the Graduate Nursing Programs (Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Educator MSNs) and in this grant we work with PharmD, DPT, MS/OT and MS/LCPC students, as well as  undergrad nursing students.

You might like to have a look at an old chapter 'Doctors' handmaidens: the legal contribution' from January 1992 in book: Health, Health Regulation and the Law, Publisher: Dartmouth Publishing Co., Aldershot, Editors: McVeigh S & Wheeler S, pp.141-168. The text is here on ResearchGate. The legal details are outdated, but the issues seem current.

What is the feasibility of implementing simulation research studies among novice nursing students?
Relevant answer
Answer
Its seems very feasible provided that you have the authority and ethical structures for approval in place. There seems to be much research work needed in this space and some fundamental consensus of the data definitions for data that we collect so that studies can be compared and we can develop more evidence based practices.

I agree with Lucille. Compiling a competency checklist is useful, With this technique, students can be "checked off" as knowing and being able to perform a particular skill. There are probably some standard checklists out there, but at our school, one was compiled to reflect what we teach, specific to each class or clinical experience.
I also think the use of a clinical log can be helpful, not only to determine if a student has had as opportunity to perform a certain skill, but they can also reflect on the experience, and include some self-evaluation.

People with morbid obesity are admitted to hospitals and practice centers for a broad array of conditions, such as broken bones, pregnancy, or skin rashes`. Given the brief treatment episodes that are the norm for primary presenting complaint, what are the training/ educational needs for health care professionals when they come across this type of patient? I believe this is a special population.at risk for inadequate treatment plans and psychological harm from stigmatizing attitudes.
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
The care of the morbidly obese patient is embedded in my critical care course for BSN students. I treat it like any other risk factor for each disease process that we cover in my critical care course.  For example, when discussing myocardial infarction/cardiac arrest/cardiogenic shock, I talk about the increased risk to obese patients (increased demand on an impaired pump and decreased peripheral circulation).  I include discussion about why many patients in these higher risk groups are unable to maintain a cardiac diet and exercise regimen.  (Dependence upon others for meals, limited financial resources, physical debilitation, fear/anxiety/depression, etc.).  Therefore, the importance of setting realistic goals for each patient and involving caregivers is included.  I also discuss the use of specialty beds and lifts in maintaining skin integrity, mobility, and decreasing the risk of infection.  I discuss the need to match the physical ability of the nurse to perform CPR to the size of the patient he or she is attempting to compress.  (At 120 lbs., I often found it difficult to provide adequate compressions to obese patients, despite correct technique. I didn't have the strength or mass to be effective.  I make sure the students understand that asking for help with compressions provides better patient outcomes; it's about the patient not your pride).

Hello, Janeen.
I concur with the above listed articles.  However, just to chime in on a personal note,
successful orientation programs are based in mentorship and teamwork.  If the new hire feels like they have been "thrown to the wolves" or that the other nurses are  "eating their young", they will not do as well as they would in a nurturing environment. 
We stress to students the care and compassion that goes into being a nurse.  The new hire is scared to do ANY wrong.  If they have support and growth within their orientation time, they will view their work environment through different eyes.
Again, just personal note from experience.

Students of nursing administration course are requested to select a health policy of interest and evaluate it. Students are supposed to summarize strengths and opportunities for improvement. Would anyone suggest criteria or guidelines for evaluating a health policy? 
Relevant answer
Answer
Some are the same as for any policy. One might ask:
1. Cui bono? ('To whom the good?) i.e. what are the motives for it? Who gains, what do they hope to gain, and at whose expense? (As Sophia Schlette says, 'In the end it all boils down to money and power, influence and interests, doesn't it?')
2. By what mechanisms are the policy-makers proposed to achieve these aims? Often a harder question than it sounds because policy advocates do not always explain this (either they don't know or they don't want to say: see point 1).
3. What is the evidence that their proposed mechanisms will actually produce the intended outcomes? This is where evidence-based XYZ (substitute 'medicine', 'teaching', 'crime-control' etc. as relevant) comes in.
4. What context or circumstances are required for it to work as planned? A good modern framework for do this sort of analysis is realistic evaluation - See Pawson & Tilley's book of that name. For analysis of existing data see the attached.
5. And, of course, are the relevant actors able and willing to implement it anyway? (Is it feasible? Will there be resistance? Etc.)

Student nurses to be prepared prior to the clinical posting. That can create an impact on the clinical performance, but this will help the students to face the reality. The preparation can be done through discussions, experience from the teachers, senior students, staff nurses etc.. even with the help of videos. If any such incidents took place in the ward that should be informed to the clinical supervisor, such instructions and preparation will help the students to face the real situation

I am currently the Palliative Care Clinical Coordinator at our hospital.  We do not have a Palliative Care physician.  Results of recent survey questions have revealed that the majority of staff believe Palliative Care services are of importance but many factors leave them unsure of requesting Palliative Care Nurse consults.  I have been to the ELNEC Train-the-Trainer Course and I am planning to attend an ELNEC CORE Trainer program in the summer but I don't know what education approach would be best when working with our staff. Some have suggested concentrating on a different Palliative Care aspective each month and attend monthly staff meeting on each unit.  Others have suggested online webinar--of which I am not in favor.  I believe there are better outcomes in this particular type education when there are teacher/learner interaction.  If anyone has any ideas, I would definitely appreciatinput.  Thanks so much!

Good Morning Debra- I am the Director of Palliative Care Services at Univeristy Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.  We have many different levels of training here in our system.  Two of the most effective trainings we offer here have been quite successful.  We offer unit training for nursing staff for each different unit here in our hospital.  We have a 30min, 1hr, and 2.5hr training option.  The unit directors are approached and informed of the opportunity to educate their staff.  These trainings have been very successful and the feed back from the nurses has been overwhelmingly positive.  The presentations are mainly pulled from ELNEC material and source but we also add in unit specific points for the population each unit serves.   Our second training offer is a monthly luncheon series for physician (anyone can attend but the MD's can get CE's).  Each month we focus on a different aspect of palliative care that is related to bedside palliative practice.  In the three years we have been offering this series we have educated over 800 physicians alone. 
I hope this helps in your practice and ability to educate.

Attached implications of my study:
Nurses, who represent 65% of human resources in the Bolivian health system structure, must actively participate in the design of culturally adapted prevention programmes and health education interventions. In this regard, governmental health authorities, NGOs and international organisations should be actively engaged and aware of our study’s results, particularly highlighting the importance of local agents to promote their capacitation as well as the empowerment of indigenous populations. Nursing could develop programmes and interventions based on the transcultural care theory, preserving healthy cultural practices, negotiating the adaptation of others and remodelling those which support risk behaviours. Without an in-depth knowledge of this population’s cultural framework, any attempt at an intervention runs the risk of being done in vain.

I note the date on this piece and we have written about the state of nursing in HE and the UK since. I found this paper sadly ringing true today and of course now compounded by HE fee structures. However, what to do...there are a number of articles now published on this topic but not much seems to change. I note HE campaigns such as http://cdbu.org.uk/ and http://publicuniversity.org.uk/ and http://sociologyandthecuts.wordpress.com/ but nursing seems to be ghost like. Is there mileage on a special issue of JAN or something ? I am increasingly frustrated by the lack of a strong nursing development in HE which results from both external and internal influences.

Hello Susan Lynne
I was not sure whether you wanted papers regarding help seeking for academic or more personal reasons. This is regarding clinical resources:
Dee, C., & Stanley, E. E. (2005). Information-seeking behavior of nursing students and clinical nurses: implications for health sciences librarians. Journal of the Medical Library Association, 93(2), 213. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1082938/pdf/i0025-7338-093-02-0213.pdf
This is similar but relates to qualified nurses:
Pravikoff, D. S., Tanner, A. B., & Pierce, S. T. (2005). Readiness of US Nurses for Evidence-Based Practice: Many don’t understand or value research and have had little or no training to help them find evidence on which to base their practice. AJN The American Journal of Nursing, 105(9), 40-51.              http://biblioteca.asmn.re.it/allegati/ILB8.pdf
The below paper relates to stress and more loosely covers help seeking:
Jones, M. C., & Johnston, D. W. (1997). Distress, stress and coping in first-year student nurses. Journal of Advanced Nursing, 26(3), 475. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9378866
Their in text reference re help seeking is to an older paper which is written by a ResearchGate member, Katharine Parkes who has written other papers around this subject (listed in her publication pages):
Parkes, K. R. (1982). Occupational stress among student nurses: A natural experiment. Journal of Applied Psychology, 67(6), 784.https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Katharine_Parkes/publications?sorting=title&page=2
Another paper relating to stress (but does not enter detail about help seeking):
Tully, A. (2004). Stress, sources of stress and ways of coping among psychiatric nursing students. Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, 11(1), 43-47. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14723638
This paper's references to help seeking are:
Jones, M. C., & Johnston, D. W. (1997). Distress, stress and coping in first‐year student nurses. Journal of Advanced Nursing, 26(3), 475-482, which also references Parkes (as cited above) and:
Beck, D. L., & Srivastava, R. (1991). Perceived level and sources of stress in baccalaureate nursing students. The Journal of Nursing Education, 30(3), 127-133, which discussed the students' problems but no detail about help seeking.

You may wish to search on "community based participatory research" to learn of a methodology that explicitly engages the community and clinical practitioners to identify problems and match and test interventions.  This may help you to explore some of the work done here in the US.
Another concept that is growing here in the US is the certification as a clinical nurse specialist who is able to combine functions as clinical practitioner, nurse educator, and QI facilitator in clinical environment, in your case a community.

Thank you Dr. Griffiths for your vision. Definitely I agree with you regarding "not to consider or claim nursing specific concepts" for conducting research in nursing.
