Targeting community-dwelling urinary incontinence sufferers: A multi-disciplinary community-based model for conservative continence services by Winsome St. John( )

1 edition published in 2004 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper presents an argument that there is a need to provide services that target community-dwelling incontinence sufferers, and presents a demonstration case study of a multi-disciplinary, community-based conservative model of service delivery: The Waterworx Model. Rationale for approaches taken, implementation of the model, evaluation and lessons learned are discussed. In this paper community-dwelling sufferers of urinary incontinence are identified as an underserved group, and useful information is provided for those wishing to establish services for them. The Waterworx Model of continence service delivery incorporates three interrelated approaches. Firstly, client access is achieved by using community-based services via clinic and home visits, creating referral pathways and active promotion of services. Secondly, multi-disciplinary client care is provided by targeting a specific client group, multi-disciplinary assessment, promoting client self-management and developing client knowledge and health literacy. Finally, interdisciplinary collaboration and linkages is facilitated by developing multidisciplinary assessment tools, using interdisciplinary referrals, staff development, multi-disciplinary management and providing professional education. Implementation of the model achieved greater client access, improvement in urinary incontinence and client satisfaction. Our experiences suggest that those suffering urinary incontinence and living in the community are an underserved group and that continence services should be community-focussed, multi-disciplinary, generalist in nature

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

Outcome evaluation of a multi-disciplinary community-based continence service for Australian women by Winsome St. John( )

1 edition published in 2004 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This longitudinal study evaluated the effectiveness of a multi-disciplinary community-based service offering conservative treatment for Australian women suffering urinary incontinence and living independently in the community, in terms of urinary incontinence symptom severity, impact on quality of life and knowledge outcomes. One hundred and twenty-three women attending The Waterworx Centre, a multi-disciplinary, publicly funded community-based continence service in South East Queensland Australia participated in the study. They received multi-disciplinary conservative treatment for urinary incontinence, including comprehensive assessment and an individually-tailored plan of care. All the women were also linked back to their own generalist health professional for ongoing care and management. Data were collected over a one-year period: at first consultation, and at three months and six months following the first consultation. The International Continence Society Urinary Symptom Index Short Form Female Outcome was used to measure urinary symptoms and impact on quality of life, and a researcher-developed test was used to measure changes in knowledge. Results showed that the women experienced an improvement in urinary symptoms and continence-related knowledge at three months following first consultation, and a decreased impact on quality of life, with these improvements either being sustained or increasing at six months. This study demonstrated that multi-disciplinary community-based services offering specialist conservative treatment for women suffering urinary incontinence can be effective in achieving improvements in urinary symptoms and continence-related knowledge and reducing the impact of urinary incontinence on quality of life
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
