Abstract

Newly joined nurses have a positive attitude to the challenges of being a new nurse. The initial period as a nurse was tough and it requires quite a lot of time to adapt to the new clinical setting. Induction training programme is specifically developed to welcome nurses commencing initial employment or to new nursing roles. A pre experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of the Nursing Induction training program upon selected nursing interventions among newly joined nurses at selected hospitals, Chennai. Fifty two newly joined nurses were selected using purposive sampling technique. Data was collected using demographic variable proforma and structured knowledge questionnaire on selected nursing interventions through self administration method. Rating scale was used to assess the level of satisfaction of nurses regarding nursing induction-training programme. Nursing induction-training program (Hospital Orientation Program for new Entries- HOPE) was conducted for 30 days. Results revealed that the obtained post test mean value (57.1/70) was higher than the pre test mean value (28.5/70) which was significant (p<0.001). Hence, the induction-training program for nurses was effective in improving their knowledge on selected nursing interventions.

Abstract

Ethical practice is a key component of professionalism and needs to be instilled in curricula across courses. Nurse educators should act with honesty and integrity to maintain high standards of ethics and professional behaviour. The aim of the study was to assess the professional practice attributes among nurse educators. Cross-sectional survey was conducted to collect data from 343 nurse educators from various nursing colleges of three conveniently selected northern states of India using maximum variation sampling. A five point likert scale was developed to measure the professional practice attributes of study subjects. The overall professional practice attributes were rated high by the subjects with the mean percentage score of 85.64% (Mean SD of 145.6±21.80). Different professional practice attributes among the subjects were the spirit of inquiry (88%), accountability and autonomy (87.76%), knowledge (87.75%), collegiality and collaboration (87.15%), ethics and values (86.72%), advocacy (83.56%), citizenship and professional engagement (82. 60 %) and innovation and visionary (81.40%). There was no significant difference among nurse educators from different states in terms of, professional practice attributes (P=0.25). The study concluded that overall professional practice attributes among nurse educators was high which is indicative of professionalism among nurse educators.

Abstract

A quasi-experimental study was conducted to identify the effectiveness of video assisted teaching module regarding knowledge on managing trauma victims in road traffic accidents among auto drivers. The sample consisted of 60 auto rikshaw drivers. The sampling technique used was purposive sampling. The experimental group was subjected to video assisted teaching. Video was shown to the experimental group samples on the next day of pre test data collection and post test was conducted after 7 days for both experimental and comparison group. The data were tabulated and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Video assisted teaching module was found to be effective in increasing the knowledge level on managing trauma victims among the auto drivers in road t raffic accidents (p=0.001<0.05) in all knowledge categories and as the post test knowledge scores of experimental group (23.76 ± 2.52) and comparison group (13.2 ± 2.4); (a difference of 10.56 ±2.52.

Abstract

Urinary tract infection is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in Indian subjects, affecting all age groups across the life span. The objectives of the study is to (1) To assess the existing knowledge score regarding preventive measures of urinary tract infection in patients with indwelling catheter among nursing students. (2) To assess the existing practice score regarding preventive measures of urinary tract infection in patients with indwelling catheter among nursing students.(3) To develop and implement nursing intervention guidelines regarding preventive measures of urinary tract infection in patients with indwelling catheter.(4) To assess the outcome of knowledge scores regarding preventive measures of urinary tract infection in patients with indwelling catheter among nursing students.(5) To assess the outcome of practice scores preventive measures of urinary tract infection in patients with indwelling catheter among nursing students.(6) To find an association between pretest knowledge scores of nursing students with their socio- demographic variables.

We have managed a 38 yr old woman a case of suicidal intake of amitraz, a non-systemic acaricide, an ectoparasite repellant and insecticide used in veterinary medicine. Amitraz intake is rarely lethal and management is normally symptomatic. This female was brought to the hospital within few hours of ingestion of Amitraz 30ml (1 bottle) at 10.30pm at her home, immediately she has been taken to nearby clinic and given first aid with inj. Atropine 4 ampules through IV, charcoal administered through ryles tube to induce vomiting and started with Ringer lactate 300ml as IV infusion. As the patient did not show any response she was brought to Apollo Specialty Hospital. On physical assessment the patient had extreme dryness of the airway, spontaneous breathing with the RR 28 br/mt, low peripheral oxygen saturation of 65%, heart rate 110 b/m, blood pressure is 100/60 mmHg.

SUBSTANCE USE AND RISK-TAKING AMONG ADOLESCENTS: REVIEW

[Year:2018] [Month:Jan-Apr] [Volume:9] [Number:1] [Pages:4] [Pages No:42 - 45]

   DOI: 10.5958/2249-3190.2018.00021.4  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Among adolescents, substance abuse often occurs in conjunction with risk-taking behaviors. This review explores the nature and etiology of concomitant risk-taking behaviors, addressing behavioral, genetic, temperamental, and family factors that accompany adolescent substance use. A literature review was conducted to determine the breadth of factors that contribute to adolescent substance abuse and correlated risk-taking behaviors, and to identify relevant evidence-based treatments. The literature review revealed that among adolescents, substance abuse occurs as part of a cluster of problems and risk-taking behaviors. Predisposing factors include temperament, genetics, neurobehavioral disinhibition, social competencies, parenting, abuse/neglect, and peer behaviors. Various interventions, including individual therapies, parent training, and family therapies comprise the empirically-supported treatments for these co-occurring behaviors. The literature indicates that adolescents are being seen for substance- related problems which should be evaluated for engagement in other risk-taking behaviors, and school, peer, and social functioning. In addition, the data support that family, versus individual, interventions should be the norm for substance-abusing adolescents.
