1. Cook, Wesley E. Assessment of Work Environment Health in a Suburban Nursing Facility.

Degree: 2018, Drexel University

Background: Developing and maintaining healthy work environments in healthcare organizations is vital to quality outcomes and optimized reimbursement. While the American Association of Critical Care Nurses’ Standards for Establishing and Sustaining Healthy Work Environments are well established in the acute care setting, little is known about their impact in the post-acute environment. Methods: A modified version of the Healthy Work Environment Assessment Tool (HWEAT) was distributed electronically to nurses, unlicensed assistive personnel, and nurse leaders over a 30-day period. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze demographics and survey responses by item and in the aggregate. Results: The response rate was low, rendering any inferential analysis moot. Participants somewhat-to-strongly agreed in greater than 80% of the responses that the site upholds the Standards in skilled communication, effective decision making, and authentic leadership. Conversely, participants somewhat-to-strongly disagreed in 20% or greater of the responses that the site could improve Standards performance in true collaboration, appropriate staffing, and meaningful recognition. Discussion: Recommendations are made for further exploration of specific aspects of the Standards as well as to repeat the survey. Major limitations of the study include the modification of the HWEAT and a low response rate. Conclusion: Further exploration is necessary to provide trustworthy data for site-specific quality improvement. Further research would better describe how healthy work environment standards may benefit post-acute settings overall.

2. Kunaszuk, Rose Marie Eckert. Intimacy, Libido, Depressive Symptoms and Marital Satisfaction in Postpartum Couples.

Degree: 2009, Drexel University

Objective: This study was designed to explore issues surrounding the intimate andsexual relationship of postpartum couples and the impact of those relationships onmarital satisfaction.Methods: A non-experimental, cross-sectional survey design was used. A conveniencesample of recent postpartum couples, having given birth to their second or third childand being between six and 24 weeks postpartum, were recruited into the study. Thevariables examined in this analysis were libido level, intimacy level, depressivesymptoms, demographic variables, and as the outcome, marital satisfaction. Univariateand multivariate analyses were conducted to assess relationships.Results: Twenty seven postpartum couples participated in this study. Males reportedhigher levels of libido than females. While libido level was positively associated withmarital satisfaction, for both genders, high emotional intimacy buffered the negativeeffects of low libido on marital satisfaction.Conclusions: Health care providers can provide support to the postpartum family withknowledge gained from this study. It is important to assess both mothers and fathers ofchild-bearing families for issues related to intimacy. Fathers should be encouraged toparticipate in the prenatal and postnatal care of their wives so that health care providerscan develop a sense of the family dynamics and be ready to provide support for the newfamily as needed.

3. Baseman, Susan. The Relationship of Physical Function to Social Integration Following Stroke.

Degree: 2008, Drexel University

Stroke is a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in this country. Much of the research on stroke rehabilitation has focused on physical /functional recovery as the predominant measure of outcome. Despite general recognition of the psycho-social impact of stroke on the patient and family, there is a gap in knowledge of social issues and integration into societal, family, and community roles post-stroke.The objective of this study was to examine the relationship of overall stroke recovery, functional status and depression to social integration after stroke. The study used a quantitative, descriptive correlational survey design in which a convenience sample of 48 stroke survivors was assessed via mailed survey at a single time point as to functional status and social integration to examine the relationship between these variables. Post-stroke depression and time elapsed since stroke were covariates in the model. Descriptive statistics and multiple regression analyses were performed to evaluate the contribution of each predictor variable on the main variable of interest, social integration.The response rate was 21.4%, with a total of 48 surveys containing usable data returned. The results showed that functional status, overall stroke recovery, and depression are highly significant predictors of social integration, explaining 62% of the variance (adjusted R square). Depression was negatively correlated (-.74) with social integration with significance of .01 (two-tailed). Overall stroke recovery was positively correlated to social integration (.58) with significance of .01 (two-tailed). Of lesssignificance was the correlation between overall stroke recovery and depression. An Independent Samples (t-test) analysis demonstrated no significant difference in social integration scores based on time elapsed since stroke. The remaining significant finding was that employment status following stroke dropped significantly (from 48% to 4.2%), and post-stroke employment status correlates to social integration (.034).This research clearly demonstrates that physical functional recovery alone does not assure social integration. Other factors, including depression and perceptions of overall stroke recovery, are significant factors and must be addressed in the rehabilitation process to promote social integration. This research has significant practical application to providers planning and delivering rehabilitation services to stroke survivors.
