Abstract:

The American Cancer Society Postulates breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers, with an average risk of a woman developing breast cancer is about 12%, presenting a 1in 8 chance of a woman developing breast cancer. Hence, the purpose of this quantitative study was to explore whether fear and fatalism influence compliance with breast cancer screening among members of a selected target population of African American middle class (AAMC) women. Using a cross-sectional analysis, a subsegment sample of 120 AAMC women, ages 35 and older, was surveyed with an abridged version of the Champion Health Belief Model Scale (CHBMS); this scale, in turn, is based on the Health Belief Model (HBM), the Champion Breast Cancer Fear Scale (CBCFS), and an adapted version of the Powe Fatalism Model (PFM). Results indicated that fear (χ2 (2) = 23.49, p < .001) and fatalism (χ2 (1) = 21.04, p < .001) belief scores were statistically related to breast cancer compliance. These barriers suggest a greater need for health interventions that are culturally specific, with the intention of improving the psychological aspects of health to address fear and fatalism. The social dimension of this change should involve building cohesive physician-patient relationships. This action serves to counteract fear, fatalism, and negativism, and to increase the level of comfort among individuals who are more apprehensive about seeking health care services.

Biography:

Linda Gellerstedt has worked as a registered nurse in a clinical context for 20 years and has been working as a lecturer in nursing and nursing sciences at Sophiahemmet University for five years. In 2019, Linda defended her thesis "Nursing perspectives on patient's sleep during hospital care". Linda has studied patients' sleep during hospital care from various perspectives and performed both interview studies and clinical studies.Mrs Linda Gellerstedt is a registered nurse

Abstract:

Today, sleeping problems are increasing in the community at large and are considered as a threat to public health. Sleep deprivation and related conditions are regarded as a public health problem in terms of both prevalence and consequences. Therefore, sleep deprivation among patients cared for in acute hospital should be considered to be an important area to address actively in order to achieve positive changes and development. Nurses are strategically well positioned, being in the immediate vicinity of their patients and thereby, they have also an absolute responsibility to identify sleep problems, as well as to address and promote sleep. Furthermore, nurses have an obligation to identify and minimize factors that may be disruptive for patients’ sleep, and to plan and conduct nursing care co-ordinated during the night based on the importance of coherent sleep. To address patients’ sleep, nurses need knowledge about sleep physiology, sleep-promoting interventions and health promotion. From a nursing perspective, it is therefore important to explore and describe how patients’ sleep is addressed, promoted and assessed during hospital care. Actions that may lead to a change in a positive direction regarding patients' sleep must be regarded as a profit for society, health care, and not least for the individual.

Sarit Rashkovits completed Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management. Sarit Rashkovits is working as a lecturer in the Max Stern Academic College of Emek Yezreel, Healthcare systems Management (Graduate and Undergraduate programs). Recently Sarit Rashkovits won the Best Non-European Paper Award a research of mine for the paper "Personality Attributes and Leadership Self-Efficacy of Health Systems Management Graduate Program Students" in the European Health Management Association 2019, Annual Conference, Espoo, Finland.

Abstract:

Voice behavior, meaning expressing comments and suggestions intended to improve organizational or unit functioning by employees (Parker & Collins, 2010), has special importance in regard with patients safety (Pronovost et al, 2003; Okuyama, Wagner, & Bijnen, 2014). Nurses are well positioned to observe early signs of unsafe conditions in care delivery (Edmondson, 2003; Tucker, Singer, Hayes, & Falwell, 2008), therefore their voice is vital. Research, however shows that in many cases, people, and even healthcare personnel, withhold input that could be valuable, and fail to speak up (Cosby & Croskerry, 2004; Milliken & Morrison, 2003; Morrison & Milliken, 2003; Pronovost, 2010). Therefore, it is important further develop the managerial knowledge regarding the facilitators of nurse's voice behavior.

Biography:

Dr. Bachner received his PHD in Sociology of Health from Ben-Gurion University. His M.A. and B.A. degrees are in Sociology and Psychology from Bar-Ilan University. His main field of expertise is centered on formal and informal caregiving of chronic and terminal illnesses among the elderly, from the perspective of the patients and the perspective of the primary caregivers. Additionally, Dr. Bachner studies doctor-patient relations, focusing on medical education. Within these two main fields of expertise he incorporates methodological aspects. He is currently the head of the MA programs in Gerontology and Sociology of health in the Department of Public Health.

Abstract:

There is a paucity of research on informal caregiving and associated factors among minority groups. Specifically, caregiving in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish (UOJ) community is an uncharted field. We conducted a few studies with the aims of: (1) facilitating an in-depth understanding of UOJ caregivers through their views of their position as primary caregivers, their coping mechanisms with the challenges of caregiving burden, and their unfulfilled needs. (2) exploring associations between care recipients' characteristics, care situation variables, characteristics of caregivers and caregiving burden. A total of 107 primary caregivers (66 women, 41 men) were interviewed face to face in their homes, using valid and reliable measures. Data were also drawn from in-depth interviews with 28 participants who had served as caregivers for at least a year. Three major themes emerged from the data analysis: (1) burden of care as a universal experience, (2) the faith-based spiritual meaning of caring for parents, and (3) modest needs and expectations from the formal services - a total reliance on the familial-community service system, while there is some indication of unfulfilled needs that should be addressed by the formal service system. Additionally, participants reported moderate level of caregiving burden and high level of social support. Caregiver's self-rated health, caregiver's anxiety, and social support emerged as significant predictors of caregiver burden. Nurses and other health professionals should be aware of the 'cultural color,' and the unique difficulties this population faces. Intervention programs tailored according to our findings for relieving burden are warranted.
