Title What is it like for older women to live with depression? Type
Year 2007 Publication Abbreviated Journal Otago Polytechnic library. A copy can be obtained by contacting pgnursadmin@tekotago.ac.nz
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Mental health; Older people
Abstract The author's interest in this study came from working as a mental health nurse with mainly older women with depression and developed from her concern that depression for older people is frequently misdiagnosed, not recognised or is under-treated. To date, research has rarely paid attention to the voices of people who have actually experienced depression and even less is known from the perspective of older women. This hermeneutic phenomenological study, informed by Martin Heidegger and Max van Manen, describes what it is like for four older women to live with depression. Multiple interviews were conducted with the participants. Heidegger's philosophical concepts of Being-in-the-world and Being-with-others structured the analysis. Depression was found to have a significant effect on the participants' Being-in-the-world. The themes that emerged were: something is wrong; the search for reasons; self-loathing; being overwhelmed by the feelings; hiding from the world; loss of self; loss of meaning; the struggle of everyday life; and living circumspectly. Being-with-others was difficult for the participants and the themes that emerged were: maintaining relationships when well; Being-alone; misinterpreting self and other people; the stigma of mental illness – society and self; and seeking understanding from other people. The author suggests that the findings have implications for nurses and other health professionals.

Title The transition to institutional living: the experience of elderly people Type
Year 1985 Publication Abbreviated Journal Otago Area Health Board Library, Waikato Technical
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords
Abstract The research identifies how elderly people perceive the transition from home to institutional living. The methodology for the discovery of grounded theory is used. A conceptualisation of the transition to institutional living as five sequential and inter-related phases is introduced. In the first phases of anticipation and reaction; subjects responses to challenges introduced by transition tend to predominate. The third and fourth phases are characterised by subjects working through these challenges to achieve mastery within the new situation. The final phase is manifest in each individuals' attributing personal meaning to the transition within the context of his or her total life. Mastery within the new situation is achieved through problem solving approaches to increasing dependency, acceptance of personal responsibility for adjustment and the perception of institutionalisation as but one incident in each person's life. This transition was found to differ from those described amongst younger populations. It is proposed that this difference occurs as a function of developmental stage , frailty and the environmental situation. The research a) emphasises the holistic nature and complexity of nursing with frail elderly clients, b) support the uses of concepts from developmental theory as a basis for nursing practise with elderly clients, and c) suggests ways in which nursing education and research may contribute to the development of nursing care for elderly clients

Title The context of nursing in New Zealand prisons from historical and contemporary perspectives Type
Year 2007 Publication Abbreviated Journal NZNO Library
Volume Issue Pages 94 pp.
Keywords
Abstract This dissertation by Deborah Alleyne explores the current context of nursing in New Zealand prisons through rediscovering the history of its introduction and development, and review of relevant literature. Prison nursing is recognised as a unique branch of the wider nursing profession by virtue of the environment in which nurses work and the population for whom they provide care. Four key themes are identified from the literature review: custody versus caring; nurses' relationship with custody staff; nurses' relationship with prisoners; isolation.

Title Determining competency for entry to nursing practice: A grounded theory study Type
Year 2008 Publication Abbreviated Journal ResearchArchive@Victoria
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Professional competence; Clinical supervision; Nursing; Education
Abstract Critical Comparative Nursing Assessment (CCNA) is a theory about how the competence of completing Bachelor of Nursing students in New Zealand is determined. Semi-structured, audio-taped interviews and field notes were used to collect data from twenty-seven nurses with experience in undertaking competency assessment. A Glaserian grounded theory approach was used to guide the data collection and analysis. This utilised the processes of constant comparative analysis, theoretical sampling and saturation to generate a middle range substantive grounded theory. This is presented as a model consisting of four emergent categories that explain how nurses formulate professional judgements about competence. These are a) gathering, which describes the processes used to collect evidence of practice to inform decisions; b) weighing up, which explains how evidence is analysed using the processes of benchmarking and comparative analysis; c) judging brings into focus the tensions inherent in making professional judgements about competence and how nurses formulated these, and d) moderating, which describes the processes nurses use to validate decisions and ensure that professional responsibilities and public safety are upheld. The basic social psychological process of comparing integrates these categories to explain how nurses resolve the tensions associated with making decisions about competence. This research presents a new way of viewing and understanding how nurses assess competence. It identifies where the challengers and tensions related to the assessment of competence lie and suggests strategies that if implemented, the author suggests could further enhance the validity and reliability of assessment outcomes.

Title Perceived level and sources of stress in beginning Bachelor of Nursing students Type

Volume Issue Pages

Abstract A study to examine the effects of pre- information ( what a Nurse learns about a patient before they meet) on clinical inference and Nursing actions, in a simulated Nurse- Patient situation. It was hypothesized that the nature of the pre-information will influence the way the patient is perceived and the resulting Nursing actions. The research was conducted in an obstetrical setting. There were 55 subjects within three groups. Two groups comprised student midwives and the third group was of second year comprehensive Nursing students near completion of clinical experience in maternal and child health nursing. A 5 minute videotape sequence of a role played post natal patient was made for use in the research. All subjects were given the same initial pre-information, viewed the videotape and gave written description of what they saw on the videotape and their response ( as the Nurse in the situation). This data provided a base line for each subject. Subject were then given additional pre-information concerning the patient's physical condition, her baby's condition or formed part of the control group ( receiving no additional information) The procedure was repeated. These responses were then compared with the base line for each subject. Responses were coded by means of content analysis. Group data was analysed using multivariate one way analysis of variance graphical display. The results indicated support of the hypothesis that the nature of the pre-information does influence the way in which a Nurse perceives a patient and resulting Nursing actions. Implications of these findings for Nurses are discussed
