Routine Episiotomies without Consent

Sexual and reproductive health is now gaining attention all over the globe. If we focus on the reproductive health aspect of a women, a word “pregnancy” always comes in our mind. As a healthcare provider, we know that ethics is involved in all the things we do from autonomy to paternalism, but still we sometimes violate patient’s right. A common practice of giving episiotomy to every pregnant women regardless of their parity status is not a quality care. I personally encountered a case in which same thing happened with a patient. This is a very serious issue because it might end up into complications to the patient. We have to remember that pregnancy is not a disease, but a natural process of giving birth.

Cancer patients’ access to Oncology Nurse Navigator (ONN)

Published studies revealed that patients with cancer and their families experienced dissatisfaction with service fragmentation, delays, lack of information, and lack of coordination. They expressed a sense of isolation, powerlessness, and a lack of guidance. They needed timely information on the disease, treatments, available resources, better communication, and emotional support. Patients referred to the care system as a maze and expressed a need for continuity of care and a person-centered approach. To address the latter need, cancer navigation programs have emerged as a model of care with the Oncology nurse navigator (ONN) playing a key role in assessing the patient’s needs, providing support and guidance throughout the disease trajectory.

Post myocardial infarction depression is common and puts a negative effect on recovery. Modified Nursing interventions effectively reduce the frequency and severity of depression in such patients. Objective: The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of Modified Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) in reducing the severity of depression among patients with Myocardial Infarction. Methods: Sixty-eight stable patients with myocardial infarction (>1 month history) having mild to moderate depression in accordance to Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) [with a score of 5 to 14] were enrolled. Patients were assorted into interventional and control group. Modified Nursing Intervention was offered in Interventional Group. The frequency and effectiveness of Modified Nursing Intervention among the groups were determined and compared. Results: Both moderate and mild level depression was decreased in Intervention Group as compare to Control Group. Baseline mean depression PHQ-9 score was 2.35 point statistically significantly higher in the Control Group than Interventional Group (<0.001). After three weeks intervention the mean depression PHQ-9 score was 4.76 points significantly lower in Intervention Group than Control Group (<0.001).

Why taking Care on Mental Health for Women during Pregnancy and Postnatal Time? – The Important Connection to Mental Health of next Generation. Practical Considerations

Introduction Mental disorders such as pre- and postpartal depression and psychosis are important facts on which attention should be paid on. It is important to support mothers suffering on these disorders not only for their own positive coping, but especially for their attachment to their newborns. Especially if there have been problems during pregravid time, pregnancy and birth.

We know about the difficulties of mothers feeling not as good and competent mothers. Since there are a lot of social asserts a mother has to accept and represent.

All professionals working with mothers during pregnancy and after birth should be aware and focused on that topic to identify possible/potential psychic instabilities and be able to handle them.

This presentation will show the impact of mental stability and practical impulses, which will help to improve mental stability for mothers and their children. On the other side it will make it easier to identify postpartal mental difficulties.

Nurses Role during Perinatal Bereavement

The loss of a pregnancy is a physiological and emotional challenge for the mothers especially. This time is extremely difficult for the parents and they can exhibit emotions like anger, shock, emptiness, helplessness and loneliness. Nurses are expected to care for the bereaved families and parents regardless whether they feel prepared or not. Unfortunately, many nurses face difficulties in dealing with the mothers experiencing pregnancy loss. Lack of education and training on how to communicate better create dissatisfaction in the bereaved families. Similar incident I encountered where a female patient was dealt in a very insensitive manner during her 21st week of pregnancy which was to be terminated due to bulging of the fetal membranes. It is necessary for nurses to be well prepared to support the grieving mothers thus making nursing a trusted profession.

Importance of Insight in the Recovery of Mental Illness

Mental illness makes a person denies of its own existence (Tracy, n.d.). It interferes with their thoughts, beliefs and perception which creates difficulty to understand one’s illness and becomes a barrier to recovery. Understanding of illness is the main protective factor that increases the chance of recovery. Hamilton and Roper (2006) stated “Insight is a glimpse or view beneath the surface, the faculty or power of thus seeing” (p. 416). The problem arises when an individual doesn’t comprehend about their illness which hinders in the treatment regimen. According to Chakraborty and Basu (2010), lack of insight is when patients are unaware about their illness which becomes an obstacle in their recovery.

Religious Beliefs and Health Practices

Understanding religious beliefs of an individual plays a vital role in identifying health care needs and the methods used to treat patient effectively. If we talk about women, religious beliefs are most important for them because in every religion women is the center of attraction and that’s why a women needs to be very vigilant in their every action including their pregnancy time. The fact is that it’s a patient autonomy to treat them according to their beliefs, but unfortunately we as a healthcare provider do not understand this and we force them to do that actions which are prohibited in their religion, and this is because of communication gap between a patient and a healthcare provider. I personally encountered a situation in which same thing happened with a patient who belongs to Hindu religion. We have to remember that only by understanding the religious beliefs of individuals can help healthcare providers to effectively meet healthcare needs of patients of a diverse religious beliefs. In a nutshell, to respect patient’s autonomy and their religious beliefs, we as a health care provider should strengthen our skills of communication by taking complete history of a patient including their demographic data which we do not even bother for.

Patient education/counseling are the most effective strategy used by nurses to empower their patients. Patients hospitalized for surgical interventions usually afraid of the unknown of surgical intervention and the annoying environment of the hospital, thus patient needs physical and psychological preparation before surgical intervention. The process of hospitalization as well as surgery (minor or major) develop and anxiety and stress in patient at the time of admission. Inadequate pre-operative education/counseling lead to increases post-operative outcomes such as pain and anxiety. These two major consequences of surgical intervention leads to a number of complications such as delay recovery, delay resuming of bowel movements, overburden the care giver financially, readmission and even treatment failure.

Knowledge and Health Beliefs about Breast Cancer Screening among Rural Palestinian Women in Bethlehem Governorate: a cross-sectional survey

Breast cancer is the most frequent type of cancer among women and is diagnosed at advanced stages of the disease. This delay in diagnosis results in poor survival outcomes even though the incidence rates are less than 40 cases per 100,000 women (Ferlay, Shin, Bray, Forman, Mathers, & Parkin, 2010).  In the Occupied Palestinian Territories (oPt), women are less likely to participate in breast cancer screening.

The aim of the study is to examine rural Palestinian women’s level of knowledge about and beliefs toward breast cancer screening (BCS), and to test if there are differences in demographic variables (age, level of education, socioeconomic status, health insurance) between women who participated in mammography vs. those who did not participate in mammography.
