Meeting the challenge of new fatherhood during the early weeks by Winsome St. John( )

1 edition published in 2005 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective: To explore new/subsequent Australian fathers' perspectives on the experiences, processes, and life changes in the early weeks of fatherhood. Design: Interpretive study using in-depth interviews and grounded theory analysis techniques, based on a symbolic interactionist framework. Setting: Participants were recruited from the postnatal wards of a major public hospital, early discharge program, and early childhood centers in southeast Queensland, Australia. Participants: Eighteen first-time/subsequent fathers interviewed 6 to 12 weeks after the birth. Results: Although rewarding, fathers found new or expanding fatherhood to be a significant challenge and time of change. Major themes included making a commitment, taking responsibility, negotiating responsibilities, developing and maintaining relationships, maintaining family integrity, balancing activities, and perceiving the self as father. Work had a major impact on fathers' ability to participate with their family and newborn. To manage, fathers sought to balance the demands of work and home, deal with stressors, manage their time, develop routines, and reprioritize. Fathers developed a sense of themselves as fathers over time, building confidence and deriving satisfaction from their fathering role. Conclusions: A range of competing factors affected fathers' ability to participate in the home with their newborn in the early weeks after birth

1 edition published in 1996 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The traditional hospital-based approach to Australian nurse education curricula was primarily based on the medical model and directed towards the preparation of nurses who were able to give care to individual clients The major focus was on the needs of the individual A notable absence in curricula was any consideration of the role or importance of families to individual and family health This was despite the continuing involvement that nurses have in their practice with the families of their clients This paper describes the experiences of introducing a family nursing subject in an undergraduate, preregistration nursing programme which focuses on the family as a unit of care Educational strategies, clinical experiences, and evaluation of the unit of study are discussed
Health professionals' decision‐making in wound management: a grounded theory( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Aim To develop a conceptual understanding of the decision‐making processes used by healthcare professionals in wound care practice. Background With the global move towards using an evidence‐base in standardizing wound care practices and the need to reduce hospital wound care costs, it is important to understand health professionals' decision‐making in this important yet under‐researched area. Design A grounded theory approach was used to explore clinical decision‐making of healthcare professionals in wound care practice. Methods Interviews were conducted with 20 multi‐disciplinary participants from nursing, surgery, infection control and wound care who worked at a metropolitan hospital in Australia. Data were collected during 2012–2013. Constant comparative analysis underpinned by Strauss and Corbin's framework was used to identify clinical decision‐making processes. Findings The core category was 'balancing practice‐based knowledge with evidence‐based knowledge'. Participants' clinical practice and actions embedded the following processes: 'utilizing the best available information', 'using a consistent approach in wound assessment' and 'using a multidisciplinary approach'. The substantive theory explains how practice and evidence knowledge was balanced and the variation in use of intuitive practice‐based knowledge versus evidence‐based knowledge. Participants considered patients' needs and preferences, costs, outcomes, technologies, others' expertise and established practices. Participants' decision‐making tended to be more heavily weighted towards intuitive practice‐based processes. Conclusion These findings offer a better understanding of the processes used by health professionals' in their decision‐making in wound care. Such an understanding may inform the development of evidence‐based interventions that lead to better patient outcomes
