1. Lally, Elsa June. An Exploration of Language and Nursing Practice to Improve Communication in the Context of Ear Syringing.

Degree: 2002, Victoria University of Wellington

Action research is a critical reflective process that involves spirals of cycles if of planning, acting, reflecting/evaluating and replanning the next cycle. This action research inquiry explores communication and nursing practice in an effort to improve practice and enhance patient care. Implications of this study indicate that action research is a method that works, and it is a satisfying way of challenging and changing nursing practice. Using ear syringing as a procedure, in the general practice setting and at two separate surgeries, another Practice Nurse and I co-researched this study during working hours. 12 people consented to participate in the research that involved the audiotaping of each ear syringing interaction. Following each transcription of the recording, my co-researcher and I read our own and then each other's transcripts, and listened to the recordings. We then met to discuss and reflect on our findings and to plan the next cycle. Throughout the process, my co researcher and I found a number of areas of practice we could change or enhance. Changes included the use of technical language such as "contraindications" and "auditory meatus", the side effects of syringing, improvements in communicating situations where ear syringing is not recommended and the options available, and post procedure information. These changes became a significant challenge and areas for improvement when both my co-researcher and I forgot the changes, thus repeating previous errors and omissions. This factor highlighted the need to practise any changes prior to interactions, and to have a cue card on hand to facilitate recollection and to cement improvements into practice. Although time constraints limited this inquiry to three cycles, at the final meeting we agreed to continue the reflective process we had begun to explore our practice. Advisors/Committee Members: Nelson, Kathy.

2. Haggarty, Carmel Elizabeth Anne. Critical Case Study: Supporting the New Graduate Nurse Entering Specialist Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Practice.

Degree: 2000, Victoria University of Wellington

This critical case study was undertaken for the purposes of illuminating information relating to new graduate nurses’ experiences in their first clinical placement, in order to consider ways an established entry to practice programme (the programme) can better support and enhance the students’ transition from student nurse to staff nurse within psychiatric mental health nursing practice. Seven of the 1999 students of the programme participated in the research. The project provided the researcher with a variety of challenges related to her dual role as researcher and programme coordinator. Data was collected through the use of discussion groups, participants and researcher jointly identifying the themes that were explored. These themes related to preceptorship and support, socialisation of the new graduate and risk management. The research has provided rich data that has and will continue to be used to inform future developments within both the educational and clinical components of the programme. The research has also provided opportunities for personal and professional growth through the sharing of experiences and working together to identify emancipatory action which has in turn led to transformation. Advisors/Committee Members: Cash, Penny.
