Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Pflegemanagement / Sozialmanagement, Fachhochschule Jena (Fachbereich Sozialwesen), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Veränderungen im Gesundheitswesen durch laufende Reformen und Restrukturierungen sind vielfältig. Schon seit Jahren sind demografische Tendenzen wie die älter werdende Bevölkerung, Zunahme chronischer Krankheiten, veränderte Familienstrukturen und ein Wertewandel in der Gesellschaft bekannt. Die Aufgaben der Pflege werden in diesem Zusammenhang immer komplexer, während die finanziellen Mittel und Ressourcen knapper werden. Es zeigte sich, dass mit herkömmlichen Ausbildungs- und Organisationsstrukturen den ehemaligen und zukünftigen Herausforderungen nur zum Teil entsprochen werden konnte. Neuartige Problemstellungen verlangten nach anderen Werten, Methoden und Instrumenten. Um diesen Herausforderungen gerecht zu werden, hat die Schweizer Bildungslandschaft in der Pflege 1983 begonnen, pflegespezifische Fachausbildungen in der Pflege zu etablieren, um somit der Pflegepraxis neues Wissen und Können zugänglich zu machen. Zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt stellen sehr unterschiedliche Fachausbildungen einen festen Bestandteil der Schweizer Pflegebildungslandschaft dar. Pflegende mit einer abgeschlossenen Fachausbildung gelten als die Spezialistinnen für klinische Pflege. Ungeachtet dieser fachlichen Anerkennung bedeutet die Rollenfindung im jeweiligen Praxisfeld für die meisten Absolventinnen solcher Weiterbildungen eine große Herausforderung. Ständig wechselnde Bedingungen des Gesundheitswesens und institutionellen Gegebenheiten bei der Rollenanpassung müssen in deren Berufsbild mit einbezogen werden. Diese Literaturarbeit stellt die Entwicklung der Pflegeexpertinnen in der Schweiz vor. Ziel der Arbeit ist es darzustellen, wie sich das Berufsprofil Pflegeexpertin entsprechend der pflegefachlichen Herausforderungen unter veränderten politischen Strukturen im Gesundheitswesen entwickelt hat. Ein Bezug der Tätigkeit von Pflegeexpertinnen in Deutschland wird hergestellt.

Caring is imperative in nursing and therefore an important element of any nursing course. This book demonstrates through narratives and real life case studies, how students can become better carers in their own practice.

This textbook is specifically designed to meet the objectives of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) competency that relates to ìClinical Scholarship and Analytical Methods for Evidence-Based Practice.î It provides the knowledge and skills necessary for DNP students, faculty and advanced practice nurses to conduct a comprehensive systematic review (CSR). The text sets forth a rigorous, step-by-step approach to the process of conducting a literature search, including both quantitative and qualitative studies, as well as ìgreyî literature. It describes how to extract and synthesize the most relevant data, how to integrate systematic reviews into practice, and how to disseminate the results. The volume begins by addressing the basic concepts of systematic reviews and their relationship to clinical practice and policy, before delineating the systematic steps of this process along with the development of a systematic review proposal and clinical question. The book then describes how to find and select the best available evidence and explores specific types of systematic reviews, including experimental, observational, and economic evidence, and explores the current and future use of the process. End-of-chapter application exercises, questions for review, objectives, summary points, and references facilitate learning. Mastery of the CSR process and application of the resultant evidential summaries will be of utmost benefit to nursing practitioners seeking to provide care according to the most current evidence-based knowledge. Key Features: Tailored specifically for graduate nursing courses in evidence-based practice Describes how to find and appraise relevant studies, including nonpublished ìgreyî literature and offers criteria for selecting or excluding studies Guides readers through the process of searching the literature for evidence based on the review question Explains how to integrate systematic review outcomes into practice Compares CSR methods, review of literature, integrated review, and meta-studies
