    Abstract Children with cancer are frequently confronted with painful procedures during their course of care. To support them during their treatment, communication techniques derived from hypnosis have shown excellent results in reducing the distress and pain associated with these procedures. We conducted a preliminary study evaluating the effects of hypnotic communication training on nurses’ practice during painful procedures with children with cancer. The results showed good acquisition of the techniques by the nurses and the significant effects of these techniques on the children’s pain and distress levels. This study also provided recommendations for improving the training to develop a simpler design… More >

    The Interaction and Life Experiences between the Patient and the Nurse Caring for the Patient with COVID-19 in Turkey: A Qualitative Dyadic Approach

    Nuran Dudaklı1, Hilal Altundal Duru2,*, Mualla Yılmaz2, Serpil Türkleş2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 511-525, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.020703

    Abstract Previous research and observations have shown that COVID-19 affected both patients’ and nurses’ mental health. Even in the best times, one of the best ways to improve patients’ experiences is to improve the health workers’ experience. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the patterns of interaction between patients diagnosed with COVID-19 and the nurses caring for them and to help them recognize the strengths of their relationship. In this study, we aimed that purposed to discover the interaction and life experiences between the COVID-19 patients and the nurses who provided care for them in Turkey. With the dyadic… More >

    Annealing Harmony Search Algorithm to Solve the Nurse Rostering Problem

    Mohammed Hadwan1,2,3,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.3, pp. 5545-5559, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.024512

    Abstract A real-life problem is the rostering of nurses at hospitals. It is a famous nondeterministic, polynomial time (NP) -hard combinatorial optimization problem. Handling the real-world nurse rostering problem (NRP) constraints in distributing workload equally between available nurses is still a difficult task to achieve. The international shortage of nurses, in addition to the spread of COVID-19, has made it more difficult to provide convenient rosters for nurses. Based on the literature, heuristic-based methods are the most commonly used methods to solve the NRP due to its computational complexity, especially for large rosters. Heuristic-based algorithms in general have problems striking the… More >

    Effect of Perceived Organizational Support on Fatigue of Chinese Nurses during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Resilience as a Mediator

    Na Zhang1, Dingxin Xu2, Jingjing Li3,*, Zhenxing Gong4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.2, pp. 243-254, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.015487

    Abstract As working for the nurse is believed to be one of the most stressful professions, nurses are particularly at risk of experiencing fatigue. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, fatigue among nurses may affect physical and mental health seriously, which is attracting increasing attention of researchers and clinical practitioners to find effective prevention measures to alleviate nurses’ fatigue. This study aims to investigate the mediational effect of resilience on the relationship between nurses’ perceived organizational support and fatigue. A total of 476 nurses from secondary and above hospitals in Hebei province, China during March and April in 2020, were investigated with… More >

    Bridging the Gap between Ethical Climate and Nurses’ Service Behaviors: the Critical Role of Professional Well-Being

    Na Zhang1,*, Jingjing Li2, Xing Bu2, Zhenxing Gong3, Gilal Faheem Gul4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.20, No.3, pp. 99-110, 2018, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2018.010803

    Abstract Although the importance of nurses’ service behaviors has been increasingly emphasized, few studies accounted for how organizational or individual antecedents affect nurses’ psychological processes to implement service behaviors. Additionally, they mainly focused on the one side of roleprescribed service behavior and ignored the effect on extra-role service behavior. This study seeks to explore the relationship between ethical climate and nurses’ service behaviors from a comparative view, of the role-prescribed and extra-role service behavior and examine the mediating effect of nurses’ professional wellbeing (as characterized by positive attitudes toward work, specifically harmonious work passion and obsessive work passion).

    Boschi CL, M Palazuelos, E Gandolfo

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.83, pp. 341-346, 2014, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2014.83.341

    Abstract Ginkgo biloba seed germination has hormonal inhibitors. Because of this, it has to be stratified in cold (4 °C) for 9 weeks before planting. This study evaluated other management by dipping prior to the sowing of seeds in solutions of 6-benzylaminopurine (BA) to obviate those nine-week waiting period and thus increase seedling growth period during the first year of cultivation. Dose experiments were performed combining BA and cold days. Treatments were two solutions with BA (2.5 ppm and 5 ppm), four periods of cold stratification (25, 31, 38 and 49 days) and two growth conditions:(a) in pots and (b) in… More >
