1. Yilma, Nebeyou Aberra. Comparing adherence patterns to standard precautions and infection control amongst health care providers in public and private hospitals in Botswana.

Degree: 2013, University of South Africa

This study aimed to provide evidence on knowledge of attitudes toward standard precautions (SPs) and its practice of Healthcare Workers (HCWs) in government and private hospitals in Botswana. It utilised descriptive cross-sectional methodology. A range of significant findings were revealed. Good practice of SPs was noted more amongst the HCWs in government than in private hospitals. Knowledge of SPs amongst HCWs in government hospital was significantly and positively correlated to good practice of SPs. Registered Nurses (RNs) had better knowledge of SPs than HealthcareAssistants (HCAs).There was no significant difference between RNs and HCAs practice of SPS and attitudes toward the same. No significant difference in the knowledge, attitudes and practice of SPs was noted between General Practitioners (GPs) and RNs. No significant difference in the knowledge, attitudes and practice of SPs was observed between GPs and HCAs. The study findings have implications for the application of SPs in practice Advisors/Committee Members: Sandy, Peter Thomas (advisor).

2. Oliveira, Tânea Cristina Fonseca. Atitudes do enfermeiro face às infecções associadas aos cuidados de saúde.

Degree: 2012, Instituto Politécnico de Viseu. Escola Superior de Saúde de Viseu

ENQUADRAMENTO: As infecções adquiridas em consequência da prestação de cuidados constitui um problema grave, com morbilidade e mortalidade significativas. Estas infecções são evitáveis em cerca de um terço dos casos, pelo que a capacidade de as prevenir pode constituir um dos indicados de qualidade dos cuidados. É um problema escondido, transversal que nenhuma instituição ou país ainda conseguiu resolver. Em cada ano, centenas de milhares de doentes em todo o mundo são afectados pelas IACS, sendo considerado o evento adverso mais frequente durante a prestação de cuidados, em todo o mundo. OBJECTIVOS: Caracterizar as Atitudes adoptadas pelos Enfermeiros face às IACS; Analisar em que medida as variáveis sócio-profissionais e a formação acerca das IACS influenciam as atitudes do Enfermeiro MÉTODOS: O estudo transversal de natureza observacional assenta numa lógica de análise descritivo – correlaciona e foi realizado numa amostra definida pelo método não probabilístico, de forma acidental, durante um período de tempo, constituída por 142 Enfermeiros prestadores de cuidados na ULS da Guarda. O perfil médio revela enfermeiros do sexo feminino (76,80%), com idade média de 36 anos, a exercer a profissão entre os 10-19 anos (40,80%) com uma média 13,04 anos, licenciados (69,50%), com a categoria profissional de Enfermeiro graduado (50,00%), com horário na instituição de 35h/semana (70,40%), com vínculo à Função pública (61,30%) e sem duplo emprego (77,47%). De forma a caracterizar as atitudes do enfermeiro, utilizou-se um instrumento de colheita de dados constituído por uma caracterização sócio-profissional e formação acerca das IACS, a Escala de Atitudes face às IACS (Barroca, Cruz, Gaspar e Valdemar, 2006) e uma resposta aberta acerca das condições no serviço que favorecem a infecção nosocomial. RESULTADOS: Constatou-se que os enfermeiros adoptam atitudes consideradas adequadas, com uma média de 103 respostas adequadas. Nas variáveis pessoais (sexo e idade) infere-se que não há relação entre o sexo e as atitudes do enfermeiro face às IACS. Das variáveis profissionais dos enfermeiros, apenas o duplo emprego influência as atitudes do enfermeiro face às IACS. Por outro lado inferimos que existe uma relação de dependência entre os enfermeiros com formação acerca das IACS e as atitudes do enfermeiro face às IACS. A idade, o tempo de exercício profissional e o número de horas de formação não se revelam preditoras das atitudes do enfermeiro face às IACS. CONCLUSÕES: As evidências encontradas neste estudo referem que o duplo emprego e a formação dos profissionais acerca das IACS influência as atitudes do enfermeiro face a esta problemática. As soluções para os problemas das IACS baseiam-se em medidas de prevenção e controlo de infecção, que requerem a responsabilização e a mudança de comportamentos por parte dos profissionais de saúde.

3. Houde, Sebastien. The Application of the Mindfulness Framework to the Study of Intercultural Competence .

Degree: 2014, University of Guelph

Although a growing body of evidence has looked at the beneficial impact of mindfulness practice in a number of domains (e.g., improvement of mental health and psychological well-being, physical health, behavioral regulation, relationship and social interaction quality; see Baer, 2003; Brown et al., 2007), very little empirical research has been conducted or focused on the role that mindfulness could play in better understanding intercultural relations and related issues (e.g., intercultural competence development and training, intercultural adaptation and effectiveness). As such, the purpose of this dissertation was to investigate the relationship between mindfulness and intercultural competence, and more specifically investigate the extent to which there exists a direct or indirect relationship between these constructs. Although empirical evidence suggests that numerous mechanisms could be at play (see Shapiro et al., 2006), there are no theories or models specifically looking at the construct of mindfulness and the means by which it could potentially impact the development of intercultural competence. By drawing on the seminal work of Shapiro et al. (2006), two studies were conducted to test an integrative framework to highlight the presence of such a relationship and investigate the mediating role played by these different mechanisms, including (a) decentering, (b) exposure, (c) flexibility/rigidity, (d) self-regulation/self-management, and (e) value clarification. After steps were taken to ensure that the measurement properties of the different indices or psychometric instruments were meeting an acceptable standard across both studies, results generally indicated that mindfulness was indeed related to a number of intercultural competence indices, and that this relationship tended to be partially mediated by a number of mediating variables or mechanisms of action (i.e., exposure, flexibility/ rigidity, self-regulation/self-management, and value-clarification). Overall, these results tend to suggest that applying the mindfulness framework to the study of intercultural competence is likely to generate a number of interesting insights and greatly benefit both research and practice.
