Nursing Interventions That Address Barriers In The United States That Impact Neonatal Mortality, Victoria D. Sullivan, Ashton J. White 2019 Oral Roberts University

Nursing Interventions That Address Barriers In The United States That Impact Neonatal Mortality, Victoria D. Sullivan, Ashton J. White

Nursing Undergraduate Work

In 2016, four out of every 1000 babies born in the US died within one month of age. This systematic research review explored nursing interventions that addressed barriers that impact neonatal mortality. The most significant barriers nurses faced in reducing and preventing NM were maternal access to healthcare and education during pregnancy, which can be influenced by maternal age, low socioeconomic status, lack of familial support, poor health literacy, and geographic location. The articles examined included nursing interventions that were evidence-based and addressed barriers relating to NM. Interventions promoting the reduction of NM included education of women’s health and ...


Risk For Maternal Infant Bonding Reduction In High Risk Deliveries And The Recovery Phases, Amanda M. Karimi, Corie VanArsdale MSN 2019 Oral Roberts University

Risk For Maternal Infant Bonding Reduction In High Risk Deliveries And The Recovery Phases, Amanda M. Karimi, Corie Vanarsdale Msn

Nursing Undergraduate Work

Bonding is one of the first developmental tasks for infants and is imperative for successful growth. The bonding phase begins in the periods immediately following birth. Complications that inhibit bonding postpartum may delay this process. Breastfeeding barriers, maternal substance abuse, and poor maternal mental health are among the contributing factors to delayed bonding. The purpose of this research study was to answer the question, “What best practiced nursing interventions assist mothers to promote bonding with the newborn after high risk deliveries?” This research review included a sample size of 10 articles which provided a variety of interventions to promote bonding ...

The purpose of this systematic review is to synthesize current research to answer the question, what nursing interventions best treat postpartum depression affecting mothers of low SES in developed countries. The methodology included 10 articles in research of interventions related to sleep, exercise, and social support. Of these interventions in the discussion, exercise is the most effective.

Nursing Undergraduate Work

The obesity epidemic in America costs the healthcare system hundreds of billions of dollars every year and takes a toll on the physical and mental health of the patient. Analyzation of different weight loss methods allows healthcare providers to provide accurate and relevant education to patients who are suffering from obesity. A search for the paleolithic, ketogenic, and vegan diets, resulted in fifty-four scholarly studies via purposive sampling. Data was collected on the paleolithic, ketogenic, and vegan diets and all had conclusive positive effects on weight loss. Individuals studied on the paleolithic diet lost up to 2.3 kg in ...

Stress Reduction: Mindful Mandalas, Olivia Parrott, Carolyn Gillespie, Krystal Klag, Eleke Bonsi, Jenn Smith

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Mental Health is an ever-increasing topic of discussion in several sectors of today’s society. One career, law enforcement, seems to correlate job-related responsibilities with rising numbers in post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. A group of nursing students from Olivet Nazarene University sought to incorporate their understanding of stressors associated with the helping profession of law enforcement while researching cost-effective, evidence-based, self-care methods that have a proven ability to reduce signs of depression and anxiety. One such method is the practice of mindfulness.

Mindfulness must be understood fundamentally before it may be useful in practice in reducing the effects ...


The Relationship Between Patient Satisfaction With Nursing Care And Nursing Job Satisfaction, Natalie Leriger 2019 Olivet Nazarene University

The Relationship Between Patient Satisfaction With Nursing Care And Nursing Job Satisfaction, Natalie Leriger

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Patient satisfaction, which has become a priority for hospitals and an indicator of quality, is a result of a patient’s perception of care. The consequences of not adequately providing high levels of patient satisfaction can be enormously costly to the greater healthcare system. The literature provided evidence that effective patient satisfaction is multifactorial; one key factor noted was nursing care. This study examined the relationship between patient satisfaction with nursing care and nursing job satisfaction. The researcher employed a quantitative correlational research design to find further evidence of this potential relationship. Ninety-eight patients participated in the study, as well ...

Improving Nursing Staffing Methodology And Nursing Sensitive Outcomes With The Addition Of A Patient Centered Acuity Measure, Douglas C. Howard, Rn, Ms, Ne-Bc

Doctor of Nursing Practice Projects

Background: Assigning the correct nursing resources to hospitalized patients positively impacts patient outcomes. The current process for matching nurses to patients is highly variable and involves a combination of simple ratios, historical workload data, and expert opinion but lacks objective measurement of the patient’s condition. Objectives: This project evaluated change in selected quality indicators and the daily unit-level management of nursing resources after implementing the Troubled Outcome Risk (TOR) into existing nursing staffing methodology in a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital. Methods: TOR provides objective measurement of individual patient allostatic load. Daily calculation of TOR scores for each patient ...

The Relationship Of Age, Ethnicity, Parity, And Awareness Of The Midwife’S Role In Selection Of Pregnancy Care Provider In Childbearing Age Women, Marquida Morgan

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Abstract

Background: Birthing centers inside hospitals may offer women the choice of a pregnancy care provider. Mothers can choose either a physician or a midwife. The rise of birthing centers is parallel to the rise in the demand for midwives. It is essential for the continuous growth of midwives to examine the maternal selection process of pregnancy care providers.

Objectives: The object of the descriptive survey study was examining age, ethnicity, parity, and the awareness of the midwife’s role influence on a woman’s selection of pregnancy care provider. This information would provide midwives with a framework to understand ...

Perceived Family Support And Antiretroviral Adherence In Hiv-Positive Individuals: Results From A Community-Based Positive Living With Hiv Study, Krishna Poudel, David Buchanan, Rachel Amiya, Kalpana Poudel-Tandukar

Krishna C. Poudel

The purpose of this study was to examine the association between perceived family support, either positive or negative, and adherence to antiretroviral medication regimens among HIV-positive individuals in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. We measured past 3-month antiretroviral adherence among 233 HIV-positive individuals, in relation to perceived family support, both positive (in terms of emotional and instrumental support) and negative (in the form of negative interactions), using the 10-item Nepali Family Support and Difficulty Scale. Medium and high levels of perceived emotional support from family were associated with reduced risk of antiretroviral nonadherence, compared with low levels of perceived emotional support ...
