TABLE OF CONTENTS
1/ Editorial: Cultural Safety 20 Years On (Pg5)
Dr Fran Richardson
There needs to be more practice-focused research about how cultural safety is experienced by the recipient of care and how it is applied in nursing and healthcare delivery. [...]sociology, science, and knowledge developed from within northern hemisphere societies. Because the ground is different for knowledge arising from the New Zealand experience, theorising cultural safety must be different too
2/ Critical Elements of Pre-hospital Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (Pg 9)
Abstract: Baker et al., (2008) showed diminished rates of survival in the CPR-first group. Based largely on the evidence of the two Australian RCTs, the 2010 ILCOR guidelines removed the recommendation for CPR first, stating that 'there is inconsistent evidence to support or refute a delay in defibrillation to provide a period (90 s to 3 min) of CPR for patients in VF/pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT) cardiac arrest' (ILCOR, 2010, p. e6).\n For this reason, and due to the increased chance of accidental defibrillation, it is the recommendation of the author that it only be used by health professionals who are able practise on a regular basis.
3/ Life Experience for an Adolescent with Type 1 Diabetes (Pg 18)
Abstract: This article explores the impact a chronic illness has on an adolescent patient, their family, and social, work, cultural and spiritual aspects of their life. The discussion will focus on the patient's healthcare experience and the nursing strategies undertaken to help maintain her optimum health. The personal information used in this article was gathered from an interview with the patient during a second-year undergraduate nursing student clinical learning experience.
4/ How Culture Influences Choosing Nursing as a Career (Pg 27)
Abstract: Boyd and McDowall's (2003) New Zealand study of the career decision-making of Maori and Pasifika participants found secondary school students who were labelled as 'at risk' in terms of their success in school identified family background and whänau support as important factors. The workshops have a deliberate focus on promoting the wow factor of nursing with an emphasis on sharing positive nursing stories and participation in 'nursing simulation scenarios', such as taking blood pressures, using mechanical lifting devices and interacting with high-tech manikins, whilst linking these tasks to the science and health curriculum
5/ Leadership Styles and Nursing in a Whānau Ora Context (Pg 43)
Abstract: The paper discusses how this Maori leadership style supports the learning and development of Maori student nurses preparing for registered practice. According to Yoder-Wise (2011), leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction, motivating people and achieving objectives
6/ Perception of Cultural Safety and Attitudes (Pg 51)
Abstract: The circle of life I now see tne link between learning and understanding the importance of my nature, bicultural relationships, wider socio-political determinants of health and power between nurse and patient, and power in the wider context. No matter the setting, whether a small wound or end-of-life care, culture will show and determine our health and well-being, and power will affect the outcome of this (Ramsden, 2002; Ryan, Carryer, & Patterson, 2003). Students taught at Whitireia may not immediately make sense of the concept of cultural safety but, as they develop their nursing knowledge, they will come to see it as a framework that links with their clinical, and personal, practice and experience
7/ Blogging about ‘It’ 59
Abstract: According to Herrington, Reeves, & Oliver (2006), well-formed blogs can be used to discuss, describe and demonstrate synthesis and critical thinking. Morse (2003) believes that blogging creates the opportunity to share information, provide critique and feedback, and support learning within an established community of practice that is the 'e-classroom'
