Articles – Social Media

5. #KidsAnxiety and Social Media  

Jenna Glover & Sandra L. Fritsch
Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America. (2018). 27(2), 171-182

This article reviews the available literature regarding the interaction between child and adolescent anxiety and electronic media. It reviews current research contributing to understanding of the correlation of youth anxiety with engagement in social media and other online platforms, including risk and protective factors. mHealth and eHealth prevention and treatment options, available via various digital resources, are discussed.

6. Social media environments effect on perceived interactivity: An empirical investigation from WeChat moments

Xu, Xi; Yao, Zhong; Sun, Qing.
Online Information Review. (2019). 43(2), 239-255.

This paper proposes social media environments as effective stimuli for future participate in online social interactions. First, two cues of social media environments (user-to-system cues and user-to-user cues) can be important antecedents of users’ perception of interactivity. Second, users’ intention of future participates in online social interactions can be influenced by three dimensions of perceived interactivity (action control, connectedness and responsiveness).

7. Toward a maturity model for the application of social media in healthcare: The health 2.0 roadmap

Alternate title: Application of social media in healthcare
Mona Jami Pour; Jafari, Seyed Mohammadbagher. Online Information Review. (2019). 43(3), 404-425.

The advent of new technologies and change of patients’ behavioral patterns have triggered the provision of medical services through social media. Although the intersection between social media and health has received considerable research attention, there is little research on how health institutions implement social media strategy; thus a roadmap is required to navigate these technological initiatives.

8. Health Care Professionals’ Social Media Behavior and the Underlying Factors of Social Media Adoption and Use: Quantitative Study

Hazzam, Joe; Lahrech, Abdelmounaim.
Journal of Medical Internet Research. (2018). 20(11), 1-13.

This study seeks to understand the factors that relate to the frequency use of social media in the health care discipline. It also aims to explore the underlying online behaviors of HCPs, which include the exchange of medical information with peers, interpersonal communication, and productivity enhancement in their daily practice.

9. Telehealth and Social Media Usage Since COVID-19: How the Pandemic Has Forced Healthcare Change in 2020

Werry, Bryan R.
New Mexico Nurse (2021). 66(3), 10-11,15.

Even prior to the pandemic, there has been an increase of telemedicine-related services across all sectors of healthcare. Advancements in technology, electronics, computers, and the internet have made healthcare delivery possible through telemedicine (Claypool, 2019).

10. Craft Social Media Policies to Protect Patients, Respect Employee Rights

Healthcare Risk Management. (2021). 43(7).

Healthcare employers should create detailed policies for employees’ social media use. Social media poses significant risks for HIPAA breaches and other problems.

Articles – Nurse Researcher [Journal]

11. Be more Florence: why we need to get the voices of nurse and midwifery researchers heard: In a year marking 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale and the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, two nurse academics urge readers to unite and progress nursing and midwifery research agendas

Nurse Researcher. (2020). 28(1), 6-8.

Making up half the global health workforce, 22 million nurses and 2 million midwives provide essential healthcare across diverse settings (World Health Organization (WHO) 2020). In recognition of the valuable work nurses and midwives do, and in line with the bicentenary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, the WHO has designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.

12. Ethical considerations when conducting research with children and young people with disabilities in health and social care

Nurse Researcher. (2020). 28 (1), 9-15.

Rights-based approaches for conducting research with children and young people are now widely accepted by those working in the field. Such approaches focus on the voice of the child and are underpinned by a firm recognition that children are experts on their own lives. However, children and young people with disabilities are less likely to take part in research.

13. Use of focus group data from countries with linguistic differences: translation, analysis and presentation

Nurse Researcher. (2020). 28(1), 17-24.

The use of focus groups to collect data has increased in nursing research and provides rich, in-depth understanding of a phenomenon that can inform clinical practice. Guidance has been developed on facilitating focus groups. However, there is little guidance about how to translate, analyse or present focus group data from countries with linguistic differences.

14. Using group concept mapping to explore the complexities of managing children’s care

Nurse Researcher (2020). 28(1), 17-24.

Children whose assessed health needs cannot be met by statutory and universal services may require bespoke packages of continuing care. A project management group was set up to design a study that would explore the complexities for a children’s community nurse (CCN) of managing such packages.

15. Conducting nursing research in low- and middle-income countries: experiences, challenges and solutions

Nurse Researcher. (2020). 28 (1), 30-36.

Conducting nursing research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) balances challenges and opportunities. Understanding the shared experiences of researchers who have completed studies in diverse cultural contexts using various methodologies is important, to advance global nursing research and to build health research capacity and sustainability strategies.

16. Ethical challenges in accessing participants at a research site

Nurse Researcher. (2020). 28(1), 37-41.

One of the main requirements of qualitative research is to obtain access to participants. Researchers rely on gatekeepers for access to study sites and their communities of stakeholders, opportunities to communicate their studies to potential participants, and to locate meeting and interview spaces.

17. Validity and reliability of the psychometric properties of a child abuse questionnaire

Nurse Researcher (2020). 28(1), 42-49.

Background Few valid and reliable measures of professional self-efficacy and its influence on reporting child abuse and neglect (CAN) are available.

Aim To test the psychometric properties of the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Self-Efficacy (CANRSE) (English) questionnaire.

28. Employment: Annual performance reviews are out, and giving regular feedback is in

Stuff – 10 August 2021

For many of us, performance reviews are an inevitable fact of life. Managers need to do them to ensure they know the strengths and weaknesses of each member of their staff, and that they’re able to gauge their potential for promotions or other roles; and employees need them to know how they’re going, if their ideas are what the company wants and if their work ethic suits their workplace and role.

29. Burnout: If you love your job, you're at greater risk

30. Praise can help to improve a child's academic performance, study finds

ABC Radio National – 8 August 2021

For parents and children of a certain generation, the mantra was 'spare the rod, spoil the child'. Some also believed that giving a child too much praise could potentially hinder them in the long run. But according to recent findings, praise can have a positive impact on improving a child's academic performance.

31. Covid-19 infections of vaccinated people are expected. But the unvaccinated are 'the big highway of transmission,' expert says

CNN – 7 August 2021

Tens of thousands of vaccinated people may catch Covid-19, but the majority will not fall severely ill -- a testament to the efficacy of inoculations even against the Delta variant that has been fueling case surges across the United States, a top health official said. The severity of the illness -- not the number of people who contract the virus -- is a crucial concept for people to understand at this point in the pandemic, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who heads the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

32. Yukon woman facing long rehab after coma urges everyone to get COVID-19 vaccine

CBC News – 4 August 2021

If she knew then what she knows now, Lisa Anderson would have been vaccinated, despite her misgivings.

33. CDC shares 'pivotal discovery' on Covid-19 breakthrough infections that led to new mask guidance

CNN – 30 July 2021

A new study shows the Delta Covid-19 variant produced similar amounts of virus in vaccinated and unvaccinated people if they get infected -- illustrating a key motivation behind the federal guidance that now recommends most fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors. Experts say that vaccination makes it less likely that you'll catch Covid-19 in the first place -- but for those who do, this data suggests they could have a similar tendency to spread it as unvaccinated folks.
