This subsequently enables a number of recommendations to be proffered as well as the suggestion that further study into the prevalence of burn-out should be undertaken using a larger sample number.
Suggested initial topic reading: A proposal for a public health programme focussing on stress prevention in the 13-18 year age group This dissertation interviews 100 teenagers about stress.
Mentoring in the NHS: A case study based analysis New entrants into the profession whether at nursing or clinical level are traditionally mentored by established colleagues.
This is not only done so as to ensure that best practice is followed but also to introduce them into the culture of the organisation and the institution in question.
Accordingly, the management of pain and other symptoms and provision of psychological, social and spiritual support is paramount to best practice within palliative care.
The goal of palliative care is the achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families in the little time remaining that they have.This dissertation adopts a case study approach to these questions and accordingly interviews ten of each type of nurses.Thereafter Pines’ burn-out scale was used to classify the results obtained and the data transferred to graphs.Suggested initial topic reading: Nursing approaches to a refusal to eat in the elderly A refusal to eat is the most common eating disorder in the elderly.The consequences of such refusals can be life threatening with malnutrition and weight loss being amongst the top three consequences.These traditional include the advice to: slow down, exercise, get plenty of rest, eat well, listen to music, have a bath, get a massage, or play a musical instrument.Given the lifestyle choices of many teenagers today, this dissertation asks seeks to evaluate the appropriateness of such advice to the way they live their lives and to receive comments the potential patients themselves as to what they seek from help sites aimed at lessening their stress.In so doing 50 nurses are interviewed and asked a series of questions relating to official guidelines as to the management and evaluation of pain within children.It is expected that the results of the study will provide an abundance of suggestions for further in-house training opportunities to ensure that all nurses involved in paediatric care delivery service in accordance with best practice.First, it evaluates factors within the work environment that may be seen to directly contribute to the occurrence of burn-out.Secondly, it examines the extent to which the rate of burn-out is lower in public health nurses engaged in general nursing services compared to the level within community psychiatric nursing.
