    Nursing students doing gender: Implications for higher education and the nursing profession.Lesley Andrew, Ken Robinson, Julie Dare & Leesa Costello - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12516.
    The average age of women nursing students in Australia is rising. With this comes the likelihood that more now begin university with family responsibilities, and with their lives structured by the roles of mother and partner. Women with more traditionally gendered ideas of these roles, such as nurturing others and self-sacrifice, are known to be attracted to nursing as a profession; once at university, however, these students can be vulnerable to gender role stress from the competing demands of study. A (...)

    The philosophy of Hans‐Georg Gadamer: An exemplar of the complicated relationship between philosophy and nursing practice.Lynn Corcoran & Karen Cook - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12509.
    Philosophy has a complicated relationship with nursing practice. Selected concepts from Hans-Georg Gadamer's Truth and Method specifically prejudice, conversation, and language are articulated. An exemplar involving nursing practice at an outpatient clinic for women seeking pre- and postbreast cancer care is offered to explicate these concepts. We considered the fit of Gadamer's philosophy, particularly the concept of conversation, within a public health nursing practice context in home and community settings of the client/family and offered tentative conclusions. To extend the discussion (...)

    Moving beyond Table 1: A critical review of the literature addressing social determinants of health in chronic condition symptom cluster research.Susan C. Grayson, Sofie A. Patzak, Gabriela Dziewulski, Lingxue Shen, Caitlin Dreisbach, Maichou Lor, Alex Conway & Theresa A. Koleck - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12519.
    Variability in the symptom experience in patients diagnosed with chronic conditions may be related to social determinants of health (SDoH). The purpose of this critical review was to (1) summarize the existing literature on SDoH and symptom clusters (i.e., multiple, co-occurring symptoms) in patients diagnosed with common chronic conditions, (2) evaluate current variables and measures used to represent SDoH, (3) identify gaps in the evidence base, and (4) provide recommendations for the incorporation of SDoH into future symptom cluster research. We (...)

    An inconvenience to the nurse's practice: A Foucault‐inspired study of ethnic minority patients.Emina Gültekin, Dorthe Sørensen & Kirsten Frederiksen - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12497.
    Ethnic minority patients have been discussed and problematised in Western health literature. Drawing on an interpretation of central parts of the French philosopher Michel Foucault's authorship, we analysed a broad selection of materials to identify mechanisms through which the truth about ethnic minority patients is constructed. We identified a single, yet consistent discursive strategy that we termed ‘figure of inconvenience’ in which ethnic minority patients were classified and assigned a specific subjection illustrating them as ‘inconvenient’ to the nurse's practice. Concurrently, (...)

  6. Evolving beyond antiracism: Reflections on the experience of developing a cultural safety curriculum in a tertiary education setting.Kerry Hall, Stacey Vervoort, Letitia Del Fabbro, Fiona Rowe Minniss, Vicki Saunders, Karen Martin, Andrea Bialocerkowski, Eleanor Milligan, Melanie Syron & Roianne West - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12524.
    There is an inextricable link between cultural and clinical safety. In Australia high-profile Aboriginal deaths in custody, publicised institutional racism in health services and the international Black Lives Matter movement have cemented momentum to ensure culturally safe care. However, racism within health professionals and health professional students remains a barrier to increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health professionals. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Strategy's objective to ‘eliminate racism from the (...)

  7. Code poverty: An adaptation of the social‐ecological model to inform a more strategic direction toward nursing advocacy.Lesley Hodge & Christy Raymond - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12511.
    The purpose of this discussion paper is to explore how nurses can be strategically poised to advocate for needed policy change in support of greater income equality and other social determinants of health. We adapted Bronfenbrenner's social-ecological model to highlight how four broad pervasive subsystems shape the opportunities that nurses have to engage in advocacy at the policy level. These subsystems include organizations (the microsystem), professional bodies (the mesosystem), public policies (the exosystem), and societal values (the macrosystem). On the basis (...)

  8. Norwegian nurses' perceptions of assisted dying requests from terminally ill patients—A qualitative interview study.Hege Hol, Solfrid Vatne, Kjell Erik Strømskag, Aud Orøy & Anne Marie Mork Rokstad - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12517.
    This study explores the perceptions of Norwegian nurses who have received assisted dying requests from terminally ill patients. Assisted dying is illegal in Norway, while in some countries, it is an option. Nurses caring for terminally ill patients may experience ethical challenges by receiving requests for euthanasia and assisted suicide. We applied a qualitative research design with a phenomenological hermeneutic approach using open individual interviews. A total of 15 registered nurses employed in pulmonary and oncology wards of three university hospitals (...)

    How digital health documentation transforms professional practices in primary healthcare in Denmark: A WPR document analysis.Julie Duval Jensen, Loni Ledderer & Kirsten Beedholm - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12499.
    Historically, recordkeeping has been an essential task for health professionals. Today, this mandatory task increasingly takes place as digital documentation. This study critically examines problem constructions in practical documents on digital documentation strategies in Danish municipal healthcare and how these problem constructions imply particular solutions. A document analysis based on the approach presented in Bacchi's “What's the problem represented to be?” was applied. Forty practical documents in the form of guidelines, strategies, and quality control documents were included. The analysis uncovered (...)

    Patient engagement, involvement, or participation — entrapping concepts in nurse‐patient interactions: A critical discussion.Teresa A. Jerofke-Owen, Georgia Tobiano & Ann C. Eldh - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12513.
    The importance of patients taking an active role in their healthcare is recognized internationally, to improve safety and effectiveness in practice. There is still, however, some ambiguity about the conceptualization of that patient role; it is referred to interchangeably in the literature as engagement, involvement, and participation. The aim of this discussion paper is to examine and conceptualize the concepts of patient engagement, involvement, and participation within healthcare, particularly nursing. The concepts were found to have semantic differences and similarities, although, (...)

    Revisiting the nursing metaparadigm: Acknowledging technology as foundational to progressing nursing knowledge.Elizabeth Johnson & Jane M. Carrington - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12502.
    The nursing metaparadigm, as described by Fawcett in 1984, includes human, health, nursing, and the environment, all of which support theory development by giving direction to our focus as a scientific body. Nursing scientists make their mark in biotechnological applications, mobile health, informatics, and human factors research. We give voice to the patient through design feedback and incorporating technological advancements in our evolving nursing knowledge; however, we have not formally acknowledged technology in our metaparadigm. To continue patient-centered care in this (...)

  12. An integrative literature review and critical reflection on nurses' agency.Camelia López-Deflory, Amélie Perron & Margalida Miró-Bonet - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12515.
    The idea of agency has long been used in the nursing literature in the study of nurses' roles regarding the patients they take care of, but it has not often been used to study its relationship with nurses themselves and their status in the healthcare system. The purpose of this article is to analyze how the idea of agency is used in nursing research to better understand how we might advance our thinking around nurses' agency to shape nursing and healthcare (...)

    COVID‐19 as moral breakdown: Entangled ethical demands experienced by hospital‐based nurses in the early onset of the pandemic.Caroline Trillingsgaard Mejdahl, Berit Kjærside Nielsen, Mimi Yung Mehlsen, Maj Rafn Hollesen, Mathilde Zilén Pedersen, Georgij Engkjær-Trautwein, Louise Vase Funch & Morten Deleuran Terkildsen - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12508.
    Abstract2020 saw the rapid onset of a global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. For healthcare systems worldwide, the pandemic called upon quick organization ensuring treatment and containment measures for the new virus disease. Nurses were seen as constituting a vital instrumental professional component in this study. Due to the pandemic's unpredictable and potentially dangerous nature, nurses have faced unprecedented risks and challenges. Based on interviews and free text comment from a survey, this study explores how ethical challenges related to (...)

    The DASH model: Data for addressing social determinants of health in local health departments.Anna Petrovskis, Betty Bekemeier, Elizabeth Heitkemper & Jenna van Draanen - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12518.
    Recent frameworks, models, and reports highlight the critical need to address social determinants of health for achieving health equity in the United States and around the globe. In the United States, data play an important role in better understanding community-level and population-level disparities particularly for local health departments. However, data-driven decision-making—the use of data for public health activities such as program implementation, policy development, and resource allocation—is often presented theoretically or through case studies in the literature. We sought to develop (...)

    Body care of older people in different institutionalized settings: A systematic mapping review of international nursing research from a Scandinavian perspective.Kirstine A. Rosendal, Sine Lehn & Dorthe Overgaard - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12503.
    Body care is considered a key aspect of nursing and imperative for the health, wellbeing, and dignity of older people. In Scandinavian countries, body care as a professional practice has undergone considerable changes, bringing new understandings, values, and dilemmas into nursing. A systematic mapping review was conducted with the aims of identifying and mapping international nursing research on body care of older people in different institutionalized settings in the healthcare system and to critically discuss the dominant assumptions within the research (...)

    Experiences of moral distress in a COVID‐19 intensive care unit: A qualitative study of nurses and respiratory therapists in the United States.Sophie Trachtenberg, Tara Tehan, Sara Shostak, Colleen Snydeman, Mariah Lewis, Frederic Romain, Wendy Cadge, Mary Elizabeth McAuley, Cristina Matthews, Laura Lux, Robert Kacmarek, Katelyn Grone, Vivian Donahue, Julia Bandini & Ellen Robinson - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12500.
    The COVID-19 pandemic has placed extraordinary stress on frontline healthcare providers as they encounter significant challenges and risks while caring for patients at the bedside. This study used qualitative research methods to explore nurses and respiratory therapists' experiences providing direct care to COVID-19 patients during the first surge of the pandemic at a large academic medical center in the Northeastern United States. The purpose of this study was to explore their experiences as related to changes in staffing models and to (...)

    A critical race analysis of structural and institutional racism: Rethinking overseas registered nurses' recruitment to and working conditions in the United Kingdom.Iyore M. Ugiagbe, Liang Q. Liu, Marianne Markowski & Helen Allan - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12512.
    Language tests for overseas registered nurses (ORN) working outside their home country are essential for patient safety, as communication competency needs to be established in any workforce. We argue that the current employment of existing language tests is structurally and institutionally racist and disadvantages ORNs from non-European Union (EU) and non-White countries seeking to work in the United Kingdom. Using Critical Race Theory (CRT), we argue that existing English language tests for ORNs seeking registration in the United Kingdom are discriminatory (...)

  19. Trauma and survivance: The impacts of the COVID‐19 pandemic on Indigenous nursing students.Vanessa Van Bewer - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (1):e12514.
    The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in tremendous educational and health impacts for Indigenous peoples and communities. Yet, little is known about the impacts of the pandemic on Indigenous nursing students in Canada. Guided by an Indigenous conceptual framework and a qualitative sharing circle methodology, the interconnected personal, academic, and community impacts of the pandemic were explored with Indigenous nursing students (n = 17). Overall, the pandemic exacerbated and compounded prior traumas Indigenous students and communities have experienced across generations on Turtle (...)
