The Role of the Registered Nurse Working in Substance Use Disorder Treatment: A Hermeneutic Study.
Authors: Abram MD Abstract Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) are a national public health crisis. However, there is minimal existing research literature on the role of the nurse working in SUD treatment. The purpose of this study was to describe the meaning of the professional role of the registered nurse working in the SUD setting. The study utilized a Heideggerian Phenomenological approach with a modified Colaizzi method for analysis and interpretation. The nine study participants, two males and seven females, aged 27-60 had worked in SUD treatment for 1-37 years. Three major themes, with sub-themes, emerged: D...

Wu-Wei: Concept Analysis of a Conceptual Paradox.
Authors: Banner M Abstract The Taoist concept of wu-wei is explored through a concept analysis, as delineated by Walker and Avant. The paradoxical nature of wu-wei is explored through different uses, defining attributes, a model case, related and illegitimate cases, antecedents and consequences, and empirical referents. Practical applications for mental health nursing assessment and interventions are offered to show potential improved outcomes with the stance of wu-wei in practice. Wu-wei arises in the emptying of the vessel (oneself) of ego, thus allowing more skillful, adaptable, collaborative mental health nursi...

Resilience in Caregivers of Partners With Young Onset Dementia: A Concept Analysis.
DISCUSSION: YOD affects caregiver's health. Much research has been done on interventions for dementia caregivers. These interventions do not necessarily meet the needs of YOD caregivers as they do not account for dynamics in the family. By recognizing what is resiliency in YOD caregivers, interventions can be developed that focus on characteristics that build these attributes. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Understanding the concept of resilience related to caregiving for a partner diagnosed with YOD allows for future development, measurement, and evaluation of nursing interventions. Nursing staff are in a strategic positi...

Clear Skies Ahead: The Way Out of Identity Confusion.
This article argues that the mental health nursing role suffers from a lack of coherence which creates problems both inside and outside of the profession. It looks at evolutionary and other reasons for the development of this identity confusion and highlights the consequences for the profession. A potential way forward is then considered, which incorporates reflective practice and greater promotion of the role, building on the unique strengths of the profession. The article concludes by suggesting that mental health nurses have reason to be proud of the work they do, and also that the profession has grounds for optimism. ...

The Effect of Physical Activity on PTSD.
Authors: Oppizzi LM, Umberger R Abstract Although physical activity (PA) is known to reduce anxiety and depression, less is known about the effects of PA on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The author examined the state of the science regarding the effect of PA on PTSD. Three themes emerged: PA characteristics, added benefits of PA as a PTSD intervention, and theories on the method of action. Physical activity seems to be an effective adjunct therapy to reduce PTSD symptom severity. Findings are inconsistent between observational and controlled studies. More research is needed to identify the most effective t...

The review synthesized the results of 17 intervention studies. Findings of the review demonstrate the importance of including resilience as an outcome measure for the effectiveness of trauma-focused interventions. Findings also provide preliminary evidence that effective trauma-focused interventions both reduce posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and improve resilience.

Towards Changing the Long Term Care (LTC) Paradigm: Explicating the Concept of Thriving in Older Adults Living in LTC.
Authors: Sullivan L, Willis DG Abstract A phenomenon of interest for nursing is the facilitation of humanistic health care experiences and quality of life (Willis, Grace, & Roy, 2008 ). Inquiry into the concept of thriving as it manifests in the older adult residing in long-term care aligns with this interest. Thriving has been described by scholars in various disciplines but no context-specific definition for the LTC resident currently exists. Contrary to the generally held negative view of LTC, there is emerging evidence that older adult LTC residents "do well" or thrive in this environment. PMI...
