Abstract:

Writer and philosopher, George Santayana, said “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” The same can be true of the global COVID-19 pandemic, where hundreds of thousands of Americans lost their lives and millions of people worldwide. This includes many nurses who died and those who experienced mental health issues, PTSD, and suicide as a result of enduring untenable stressors and horrific conditions on the front lines amidst political strife, unpreparedness of government public health officials, and inadequate personal protective equipment. In the absence of Federal support, nurses struggled internally to find ways to treat patients as persons and to communicate interpersonally. Santayana further espoused: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This harsh reality for the nursing profession demands an in-depth look back at pivotal events in nursing history that transpired during its foundational development in the 19th and 20th centuries and during the early pandemic within the microcosm of NYC, where Coronavirus first spiked in the US. Via a Feedback Loop Analysis, information will be gleaned as to what was learned, what nursing discarded indiscriminately, and what can be applied and implemented today to promote the mental health of nurses, holistically, in body, mind, and spirit, through science and Mind Power, and the use of coping and peak performance tools geared towards wellness in the 21st century.

Abstract:

During the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the real "face-to-face" was exchanged for the virtual "face-to-face". Serious games (SG) was at the heart of the educational system to ensure continuity in the training of nursing students who were teleworking. How is this digital innovation perceived by nursing students? 
 
A collection of 35 virtual care situations was set up free of charge by a French startup to ensure pedagogical continuity for all the French nursing training school that wanted. A free and anonymous online questionnaire was set up to assess the perception, the motivation to learn on SG and the satisfaction of the students who used or not this device during the confinement.  
 
69% of nursing schools (n=220) used SG. 1363 students were included in the study (85%). Only 493 students declareted using the SG (36.2%) and 91.2% were female. All the students were motivated to learn on SG: M=65.2% (SD=22.4), the satisfaction was M=75% (SD=18.8), independently of the students who tested F (1,950)= 2.49 P = .115 and F (1,1200) = 2.34 ; p = .126 reciprocally. 88% of the students declared “agree” to "totally agree" that the use of SG would reduce the stress before arriving at the clinical pratice ( n=1199).  
 
SG is well perceived as a pedagogical tool in nursing education independently of the students who tested during the confinement. A multicentric study on self-regulated learning with SG is underway with 10 nursing schools.

Title: The Association between Work Engagement, Nurse Work Outcomes, and Patient Outcomes: A Survey Study in the Philippines
Speaker
Biography:

Charlie C. Falguera is both a registered nurse and registered midwife in the Philippines. He completed his Master of Arts in Nursing in the University of San Carlos, Cebu City, Philippines in the year 2010. He is currently working in the University of the Philippines Manila, School of Health Sciences, Philippines with an academic rank of Assistant Professor 7 and administrative position as Chair, Midwifery Department. He has six publications in peer-reviewed and Web of Science journals.

Abstract:

With relatively stressful work environment, nurses must acquire a state of positive work engagement. Thus, determining the association between nurse work engagement, work outcomes, and patient outcomes is essential. This study aimed to evaluate the association between work engagement among hospital nurses, their work outcomes (i.e., job satisfaction, stress, burnout, and turnover intention), and patient outcomes (i.e., missed nursing care, adverse events, and quality of care). A cross-sectional study involving 549 registered nurses working in different hospitals in the Philippines was conducted. This is a secondary data analysis from responses generated through adopted eight self-report questionnaires. Results showed that nurses with lower levels of work engagement reported increased levels of job burnout and turnover intention. Higher scores in the quality of care measure were attributed to better responses on the dedication sub-scale. Thus, work engagement is associated to nurse work and patient outcomes. High work engagement as explained by job resources is essential among nurses. Higher levels of work engagement prevent nursing staff from leaving their workplaces and may find their job fulfilling. Management strategies and procedures that increase staff nurse work engagement must be enhanced. They must embrace the significance of having highly engaged nursing workforce, considering its inherent benefits for the organization; the professional nurses, especially as means in counteracting their migration abroad; and, most importantly, the patients who are the primary beneficiaries of health care.

Tingting Cai is a PhD student in Fudan University School of Nursing. She has published more than 20 papers in peer-review journals. Her major research direction is oncology nursing and nursing informatics. She is now doing research projects in the field of symptom management of breast cancer and patient-reported outcomes measurement information system in this population.

Abstract:

Currently, there is a lack of studies assessing social relationships issues in breast cancer patients during a course of chemotherapy. This study aimed to explore profiles of instrumental, emotional, and informational support, and to identify the predictors in Chinese breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. In a multicentric study performed between January 2018 and March 2020 in China, a total of 638 breast cancer patients completed the demographic and clinical characteristics including the PROMIS-Social Relationships short forms, the PROMIS-Anxiety short form and the PROMIS-Depression short form. Analysis of variance and chi-square test were performed to examine between-group differences in demographics characteristics, anxiety, and depression outcomes across the identified latent classes. Multinomial logistic regression was performed to identify the correlation of significant demographic variables among the identified groups. Three profiles of social relationships were identified: Class 1-low social relationships group (14.3%); Class 2-high instrumental support, medium emotional and informational support group (24.6%); Class 3-high social relationships group (61.1%). Demographic characteristics that distinguished the identified classes were found. Additionally, the level of anxiety and depression differed between the identified classes. The findings revealed the heterogeneity of instrumental, emotional, and informational support in Chinese breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, which were significantly correlated with educational background, monthly family income, health insurance, and employment status. Additionally, patients with low instrumental, emotional, and informational support was more likely to report higher anxiety and depression. Therefore, when conduct interventions to promote social relationships, nurses should consider the sociodemographic characteristics, anxiety, and depression symptoms of breast cancer patients, and identify the high-risk patients for tailored interventions.

Walter C. Millazni has completed his MSc. Nursing Education (MSc.NE) at the age of 36 years from the University of Dodoma (UDOM) – Tanzania and is currently pursuing doctoral studies (PhD) at the same University. He has published 4 papers in reputed journals and has been serving as an Assistant Lecturer at the department of nursing management and education, school of nursing and public health, UDOM.

Abstract:

Pedagogical approaches in nursing education are vital for the proper formation of nurses who can demonstrate adequate meta-competencies to care for the patients and clients. Nurse tutors need to blend with the current educational changes that require multiple innovative pedagogical approaches when implementing classroom and clinical teachings to encourage active and self-directed learning (SDL) readiness among nursing students. This study intended to investigate the effect of facilitation in a problem-based environment on SDL among 401randomly selected participants in Tanzania. Descriptive analysis via statistical package for service solution (SPSS version 23) served to establish participants’ profiles. Independent samples t-test determined mean score differences of  SDL readiness and regression analysis determined the association between variables. The post-test results showed that participants in the intervention scored significantly higher [(M = 33.01±13.17; t(399) = 2.335; 95%CI: 0.486,5.668)] than their counterparts in the control. Findings of SDL readiness subscales were significantly higher among participants in the intervention including self-management [(M = 10.11±4.09; t(399) = 1.354; 95%CI: 0.173,4.026)], interest learning [(M = 9.21±2.39; t(399) = 1.189; 95%CI: 0.166,4.323)] and self-control [(M = 13.63±5.05; t(399) = 2.335; 95%CI: 0.486,5.668)]. Nursing students in an intervention were 1.291 more times higher to demonstrate SDL readiness (AOR = 1.291, p<0.05, 95%CI: 0.767,2.173) than the controlled students. Facilitation in a problem-based environment approach promises to change the spectrum of nursing competencies and therefore quality of patients’ care. Nurse tutors need to be empowered with multiple innovative pedagogical approaches to prepare nursing students to meet their academic and professional potentials.

Xin Sui has completed her master degree at the age of 27 from the School of Nursing,Jilin University. She is engaged in the study of chronic care.She has published two papers in related journals.

Abstract:

Aim: To investigate the sleep quality, social isolation and loneliness status in patients with CHD and analyze the correlation among them;and to provide a theoretical basis for improving the sleep quality of CHD patients at the psychological and/or social level.

Methods: Convenient sampling method was adopted to select patients who were hospitalized in the cardiology department of three tertiary A hospitals in Changchun from November 2018 to January 2019. The questionnaire included general information, Pittsburgh sleep quality index, social isolation and distress scale, and UCLA Loneliness Scale. All data were analyzed with SPSS23.0 statistical software.

Results: Among the 249 enrolled patients, 82.3% had sleep quality problems. According to the degree of sleep quality,the distribution was as followed: “good” accounted for 10.4%, “OK” accounted for 48.6%,“general” accounted for 36.5%, and “poor” accounted for 4.4%. M (P25, P75) of sleep quality score was 10 (8,12), social isolation score was (13.20±5.30) and M (P25, P75) of loneliness was 39 (35 ,44). The results showed that sleep quality was related to social isolation (r=0.414, P<0.05), and loneliness (r=0.481, P<0.05). The total score of social isolation was correlated with loneliness (r=0.411, P<0.05).

Conclusion: Patients with CHD generally had sleep quality problems. PSQI score indicated that sleep quality of patients was at a moderately severe level; social isolation and loneliness were both at a moderately high level.Sleep quality of CHD patients was negatively correlated with social isolation and loneliness respectively. Social isolation was positively correlated with loneliness.

Currently Yirou Niu studying in Jilin University, master of nursing and my research direction is rehabilitation nursing and elderly nursing.

Abstract:

Pension agency have become an important supplement to the social elderly service system in China. Elderly people in the pension agency may suffer from depression due to pain caused by chronic diseases. Non-pharmacological intervention is becoming one of the adjuvant treatment methods to improve the psychological condition for the elderly. Laughing Qigong Program (LQP) is a pattern of exercise that combines laugher and Chinese Qigong, so the LQP advantage includes the physical, physiological and/or psychological benefits of laughter and Chinese Qigong. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of LQP on depression in the elderly living in the pension agency in Changchun, China.According to the inclusion/exclusion criteria, 53 elderly were enrolled from the 2 pension agencies in Changchun, China. 27 participants were in the intervention group and received LQP exercise for 4 weekswhile 26 participants in the control group received routine care. Geriatric Depression Scale (DGS), Global Pain Scale (GPS), Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE), Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), Medical Outcome Survey 36-item Short Form health Survey (SF-36), Activity of Daily Living Scale (ADL) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were evaluated. Results: Compared with the control group, LQP for 4 weeks significantly decreased DGS scores and significantly increased SF-36 scores for the elderly in the intervention group (P<0.01). LQP might inhibit the reduction of MMSE and MoCA. Conclusion LQP as a non-pharmacological intervention method could improve the depression symptoms and slow down the cognitive function decline in the elderly with chronic diseases.

Yayu He is currently studying for a master's degree in the School of Nursing of Jilin University.

Abstract:

About 70% to 80% of stroke patients need long-term rehabilitation and care because of disability. Most of the stroke patients are transferred to their families after receiving early treatment and rehabilitation in hospital, so the family caregivers provide the primary rehabilitation and care services. However, the effect of family rehabilitation and care for the stroke patients in not satisfactory because of the insufficient care ability for the family caregivers due to the imperfect out-of-hospital support system and/or the poor effect of oral/written health education in the hospital. Therefore, in this study, the video combined teach-back(V&T) method for health education was used to train the family caregivers of the stroke patients in the hospital. And the impact of V&T method for health education on the care ability of family caregivers will be evaluated and the family continuous rehabilitation effect of the skoke patients will be observed. This is a double-blinded, two-arm, randomized controlled trial. 50 participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to the intervention or the control group. The participants in the intervention group will be trained with V&T method while the participants in the control group will receive usual education. The outcomes include the care ability of family caregivers, motor function, the activities of daily (ADL), and psychological status of stroke patients. All outcomes will be measured at baseline, 3 weeks, and 1 month and 3 months after discharge. This study may provide a new helth education method for the family caregivers of stroke patients.

Huihui Xi is currently studying as a graduate student in the Nursing School of Jilin University

Abstract:

Snoring is one of the common symptoms of sleep in men and often caused by increased upper airway resistance. Previous studies have shown that person with snoring often suffer from hypertension. The purpose of this study is to summarize the evidence for the association between snoring and essential hypertension. Methods We searched Cochrane Library, PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and Embase for eligible studies published up to 12 November 2020 to evaluate the association between snoring and essential hypertension. Studies were selected according to the predefined screening criteria, and their qualities were assessed by Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Evaluation Scale. Linear and non-linear dose-response models were used to assess the relationship between snoring and essential hypertension. Stata 16.0 was used for the meta-analysis. Odds ratio and 95% confidence interval were used as effect indexes. Results Six prospective cohort studies and two cross-sectional studies were included according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria. The results showed that snoring significantly increased the risk of essential hypertension compared with non-snoring participants [odds ratio (OR)=1.25; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.22-1.28]. Conclusion Snoring was considered as a predictor of essential hypertension independently, which might play a role in the prevention and control of hypertension. People who snore frequently should pay close attention to their blood pressure levels in order to achieve early prevention of essential hypertension.

Abstract:

The United States (US) is projected to be more racially and ethnically diverse in the years to come.  More than half of all Americans in 2044 will belong to a minority group, and by 2060 almost one in five of the total population will be foreign born (Colby & Ortman, 2015).  The changing ethnic demographics of the US will directly impact nurses in all areas of healthcare as they strive to provide culturally competent care for all clients.  Nurse educators have a responsibility to provide education for students to help them become culturally competent practitioners who provide more effective care and better outcomes for their clients (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2008b).  Virtual cultural immersion experiences can provide students with experiential learning.  Experiential learning is a well-recognized method used to change attitudes, an essential component of cultural competence (Ballestas & Roller, 2013).  The project was conducted to determine whether there was a difference in cultural competence among baccalaureate nursing students after a required virtual  cultural immersion experience abroad.  The null hypothesis was rejected.  There was a statistically significant increase in IAPCC-SV total scores from the participant’s pretest (M = 62.48, SD = 6.79) to the student’s posttest of the cultural immersion experience (M = 68.50,SD = 5.64, t (44) = - 5.58, p < 0.000, two-tailed).  The mean increase in IAPCC-SV total scores was -6.02 with a 95% confidence interval ranging from -8.20 to -3.85.
