In 2009 unspecified electronic survey was conducted with factors such as type, frequency, perpetrators, and professional/personal concerns on bullying identified (Quine, 2001). The results revealed that out of 330 RN respondents, 72% reported positive to bullying at various occasions in line of their career. Of this segment, clear hostility seemed most frequent in surgical/medical, operational rooms, emergency, obstetrical areas of care and adolescent residential behavioral/ mental health units. The main culprits to these act are non-other than; charge nurses, senior nurses, physicians and nurse managers. This is impartial research among others that have been carried in the United States in relation to nursing careers. Indeed, bullying in nursing profession is stirring at alarming rate that should be moderated through implementation of a number of rules and procedures.
The act ought to be rectified since allowing bullying in a nursing environment does not only damage interpersonal relationship in a healthcare facility, but also has devastating effect to the whole group, the patient quality of care, overall financial loss, and give a bad image to the workplace (Quine, 2001). Consistent bullying, affects a nurse physically with chronic health conditions, psychological depression which ultimately lowers his or her occupational performance capacity. These conditions eventually led to increased rate of sickness occurrences, inadequate staffing and poor job performance. Very few nurses can accept bullying at work. It is evident that female nurses are more at risk since bullies target them as they are perceived to be powerless and conquered by physicians, senior nurses, and administration. In most cases, bullying is done by the superior against a subordinate. Creating awareness in regard to…...

Health Needs Assessment, Practice Population

...Health Needs Assessment: Practice Population BSc (Hons) Specialist Practitioner Community Nursing Word Count: 3836 Pages:17 Public health is a multifactorial approach to the health of the population and is concerned primarily with the promotion of health (Naidoo and Wills 2000). Wanless (2004) defines it as ‘The science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organised efforts and informed choices of society, organisations, public and private, communities and individuals’. Baggott (2004) agrees with the above, but suggests that public health is fundamentally concerned with the activities of the community to improve health, rather than treatment of disease in individuals. As a student practice nurse working in a GP practice in primary care I will often be the public’s first point of contact with the National Health Service (NHS) (Ewles and Simnett 1999). Primary care is increasingly being seen as the key area within the NHS for the implementation of public health strategies (Peckham 2003, p.20). It is important, therefore, that I have an understanding of the wider issues which impact on the health of individuals and the population as a whole, in my area of practice (Jones 2000). Carey (2003, p.221) suggests that it is crucial for practice nurses to deliver care that meets the needs, and addresses the public health issues of the local population. One way to review whether health services......

Social Stats - Population Research

...NAP, 8. DK, 9. NA Step Two: The independent variable is the number of hours worked last week and the dependent variable is “subjective class identification”. A job that would require me to research the number of hours one has worked in a week and the subjective social class that one “belongs to” is an organization that focuses on economic inequality in America. The prospective job would entail knowledge of past and present trends, fluxation in the job market, and analysis of future trends. For instance, my employer may want me to research whether the middle class is shrinking into the “new” working class or if it is becoming absolute. As a professional sociologist I would be inclined to work with the understanding of specific theories like structural functionalism, symbolic interactionsim, and conflict theory, to name a few. Using conflict theory as an impetus I could look at the distribution of labor and the resulting wages earned to determine if the prevailing theory of “working hard” does indeed lead to social mobility. Can the “American Dream” truly be attained through diligence, hard work, and virtue? If so then the notion that people who are in the lower class work less than those in the higher classes would be true. This is another avenue that my employer may want me to research. Step Three: Hypothesis – It is hypothesized that: People who work more hours in a week will be in the upper class, (i.e. doctors, lawyers). Null Hypothesis – The amount of hours......

I would advise the lay person to be cautious on which sites they visit. Wikipedia and WebMD are very popular sites by non-clinical individuals and patients should be reminded these are not reputable sites. I would inform them that gathering information is a good idea however, they should discuss the information they have found with their physicians.  They should also be aware the information they choose should be written by knowledgeable authors and should be current (Schmidt & Brown, 2012).

Unethical Research Practices

...Unethical Research Practices Unethical research is commonly found within pharmaceutical companies. In a hurry to get new drugs to market, companies will often cut corners during the research process. Pharmaceutical companies will spend millions of dollars on drug research, but very little on unethical drug promotion (Parmar, Jalees, 2004). The purpose of this paper is to inform the reader of how unethical research practices can lead to death from both past and present case studies. Present Rizwan Rahim Ahmed and Dr. Ahmed Saeed conducted a case study concerning ethical and unethical pharmaceutical marketing practices in Karachi City, Pakistan (Ahmed, Saeed, 2012). The results were very alarming to the world. The study indicated that doctors, hospital administrators, and pharmacies were receiving kickbacks from the pharmaceutical industry for prescribing their drugs to patients. The case study concluded that participants had different levels of blame. For example, the study shows that four out of five doctors were receiving money from these companies. Still today the government of Pakistan turns a blind eye to this type of unethical behavior. Research found that doctors were prescribing unnecessary drugs to patients regardless of the medical outcome. The more medicine they prescribe, the more money they would receive from the pharmaceutical companies. The study concluded that this type of unethical practice is common throughout the world but severe with regard to......

Population Growth Research Papers

...------------------------------------------------- Population growth From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The estimated size of human population from 10,000 BCE–2000 CE. 'Population growth' refers to the growth in human populations. Global population growth is around 80 million annually, or 1.2% p.a. The global population has grown from 1 billion in 1925 to 7 billion in 2012. It is expected to keep growing to reach 11 billion by the end of the century. Most of the growth occurs in the nations with the most poverty, showing the direct link between high population growth and low standards of living. The nations with high standards of living generally have low or zero rates of population growth. Australia's population growth is around 400,000 annually, or 1.8% p.a., which is nearly double the global average. It is caused mainly by very high immigration of around 200,000 p.a., the highest immigration rate in the world. Australia remains the only nation in the world with both high population growth and high standards of living.

...they are facing. Is there a gap between research and practice? Why is there a gap? What can be done to close this gap and by that make a more productive relationship between researchers and external organisations? The long-standing gap between research and practice in general is a matter of national concern. Why is there a failure in bringing research knowledge successfully into organisations? (Abbott, Walton, Tapia, & Greenwood, 1999) Along with the science-practice gaps identified by Rynes et al. (2002), a number of major changes occurring in the workplace over the last 10 years (e.g., increases in demographic diversity, changes in the nature of work, increases in outsourcing and downsizing, and skill shortages) suggest the need for HR practitioners to learn about new research findings that can assist in improving the management of HR. (Burke, Drasgow, & Edwards, 2004) There are numerous terms that can be used synonymously when talking about work psychology: industrial, applied, organisational, occupational and work psychology are all used interchangeably as well as related terms as industrial and organisational psychology and ergonomics. Due to historical reasons as well as ethnocentrism so many terms exists. In this essay the term applied psychology will be used. It is contrasted with pure psychology and it encompasses all psychology looking at the direct application of theory or methods from psychological research (Furnham, 2005). The distinction......

Poorer development in infants and toddlers has been directly linked to maternal depression. Furthermore, infants of mothers who have depressed mothers tend to talk less, they engage in little play and lag behind on standardized language and mental development scales (Campbell et al, 2004). The aim of this research was to test the interpersonal psychotherapy of parenting enhancement to reduce depression of low income mothers of infants and toddlers.

Rakel DP, 2011). Before you can critique or analyze the research used in epidemiology you have to understand the key concepts in the field of epidemiology these concepts are case definition, web of causation and epidemiological triad of disease (Howlett, Rogo & Shelton, 2014). The first key concept is case definition which is the set of standards used to identify if a person has a particular disease, syndrome or health condition. The second key concept is web of causation which states that there is no singular factor that contributes to an individual meeting a specified criteria that qualifies them to develop a disease, syndrome or health condition. The third key factor is triad of disease is the way to identify the origins of disease, in other words what caused a person to get the disease, syndrome or health condition (Howlett et. all, 2014). When conducting research to use in evidence based practice in order for it to be considered solid research it should contain the seven applications used in clinical care which are; investigation of disease etiology, risk identification, identification of the syndrome and disease......

...A. Identify a current nursing practice within your healthcare setting that requires change. DEVELOPING OR CREATING AN INDEX TO MINIMIZE RISKS OFPRESSURE SORE 1. Describe the current nursing practice. An instrument specifically designed to aid health care workers evaluate the dangers of pressure sores that a patient faces is called the Braden Scale. After assessment, the victim is categorized depending on six aspects: capability of physical activity, hydration and nutrition status, capacity to alter position, the ability to respond after sensing discomfort related to pressure, shearing or exposure of the skin to friction during locomotion, and skin exposure to moisture. If the overall score is lower it means the risk of pressure sore is higher (Changing Practice, Changing Lives: 10 Landmark Nursing Research Studies, n.d). Prior to this Change, Skin assessment was based on non- formalized risk assessment which varies with each clinical practice. 2. Discuss why the current nursing practice needs to be changed Using non-formalized risk assessment in Predicting pressure ulcer resulted in non-uniformity and personal clinical judgement which varies from one person to another. Using Clinical judgement is more effective where the staffs are experienced and their experience assist in appropriate predictability, but with novice staff, the use of clinical judgment is inappropriate. In a multisite trial, Braden scale was tested by clinics bringing together skilled nursing......

...Bedside Report from the Emergency Department. Translational Research March 31, 2016     The modern day emergency room is a department that is constantly busy. In the hustle of caring for patients, there are some details of the patient’s care that can be overlooked in a standard phone report to the accepting nurse. With this in mind, a change is needed so that there is an optimum patient outcome for each and every one of the people that walk through the doors of the emergency room and get admitted. A1.    The current practice in the emergency department that I work in when admitting a patient to the medical floor goes something like this. 1. Emergency department doctor enters orders for a consulting doctor to come and look at the patient to determine if an admission is warranted. 2. The consulted admission doctor assesses the patient and determines admission diagnosis. 3. Orders are written for admission. 4. Admission orders and chart is assessed to determine if the patient meets inpatient or observation criteria by case management registered nurses. 5. Once inpatient vs. observation status is determined, case management puts up an indicator on patient chart that bed can be ordered. 6. Primary RN requests bed from bed board using computerized bed request form. 7. Bed board assigns room to patient and places an indicator on patient chart with room number. 8.

...Translational Research C301 Cesarean Sections and Skin-to-Skin Erica Curry Western Governor’s University A.1. Identify and Describe a Current Nursing Practice within your Healthcare Setting that Requires Change. Willow Creek Women’s Hospital is located in Johnson, Arkansas. Willow Creek is a 38 bed hospital specializing in women’s health, including labor and deliver. Currently we practice skin to skin with our mothers and babies post birth for vaginal deliveries. Skin to skin is when an infant is put directly on the mother’s chest after delivery. The infant is dried off and assessed while on the mother’s chest. I work in the operating room and infants are taken to nursey after delivery. The mothers and infants are apart for two to three hours after delivery. I plan to initiate a skin to skin policy in the operating room during cesarean sections. Infants will stay with their mothers in the operating room and will have the opportunity to participate in skin to skin. A.2. Discuss why the Current Nursing Practice needs to be Changed. Approximately 30 percent of deliveries at Willow Creek are performed via cesarean section. Currently, when a mother has a cesarean section, mother and infant are separated for several hours immediately following birth. Separating mother and infant immediately after birth affects them both negatively. Mothers who experience skin-to-skin are more likely to exclusively breastfeed. Infants who experience skin-to-skin......

... Analysis and Implications of Practice: Quantitative Research Analysis and Implications of Practice: Quantitative Research Why are Nurses Leaving? Findings From an Initial Qualitative Study on Nursing Attrition Carol Isaac MacKusic and Ptlene Minick Introduction/Purpose As the population ages and chronic disease runs rampant, the need for bedside nurses grows. MacKusick and Minic (2010) further tackle the nursing shortage in Why are Nurses Leaving? Findings from an Initial Qualitative Study on Nurse Attrition. The purpose of this study is clearly stated, “to understand the factors influencing the decision of registered nurses (RN’s) to leave clinical nursing” (p. 335). This purpose statement clearly states and highlights its importance to the nursing practice. Interviews were conducted to find out what factors influenced the decisions of the RN’s to leave clinical nursing. The introduction of this study gave a great summation of the entire article which pulled the reader in. Review of Literature In reviewing the article, it was discovered that the authors did a thorough search of bedside RN’s leaving the nursing practice and found that very limited data was available regarding nursing attrition. Their search began with “GoogleScholar and was narrowed to include CINAHL, Medline, PsychINFO, and LexisNexis MacKusic and Minic” (2010 p.335). MacKusic and Minic (2010) found the data search for this topic ended in 2007 when the research study took place. While many......
