1. Busink, A.M.T. The perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants on care-related prevention concerning people with dementia: a mixed methods approach.

Degree: 2015, Universiteit Utrecht

ENGLISH ABSTRACT Title: The perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants on care-related prevention concerning people with dementia: a mixed methods approach. Background: Because of the growing number of people with dementia, care-related prevention activities done by nurses and certified nursing assistants will become increasingly important to prevent complications and maintain an acceptable quality of life. Currently it’s unknown what the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention in dementia care are. Aim: To gain insight into the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention so care-related prevention for people with dementia can be further improved in the future. Research question: How do nurses and certified nursing assistants working in home care, residential or nursing homes perceive care-related prevention concerning people with dementia? Method: A mixed methods approach with survey research and individual semi-structured interviews. First, secondary analyses were done on existing survey data collected in 2011 on a sample of 206 nurses and certified nursing assistants. Second, in March-May 2014 12 individual semi-structured interviews were conducted to embellish the quantitative results. Results: From this study three concepts related to the perceptions of nurses and CNAs towards care-related prevention activities emerged: attitude, knowledge and skills and the future. Nurses and certified nursing assistants think care-related prevention is a task of their profession. They experience insufficient knowledge and skills and they like to devote more time to care-related prevention in the future. Conclusion: Nurses and certified nursing assistants perceive care-related prevention to be part of their profession. They however express the need for more education on care-related prevention, preferably in a classroom setting. In the future, nurses and certified nursing assistants like to devote more time to care-related prevention and e-health can support this. Recommendations: Additional training of nurses and certified nursing assistants focused on their different needs and use of e-health. Advisors/Committee Members: Gamel, C.J., Verkaik, R., Francke, A..

2. Mohammed, Sheila. Evaluation of Occupational Risk Factors for Nurses and CNAs: Analysis of Florida Workers' Compensation Claims Database.

Degree: 2013, University of South Florida

Musculoskeletal injuries lead to most claims even though needlestick injuries receive the most attention. In 2010, health expenditures in the United States neared 2.6 trillion. CNAs, orderlies, and attendants had the highest rates of musculoskeletal disorders of all occupations with an incidence of 249 per 10,000 compared to 34 per 10,000 for all workers. The financial burden of back injuries in the healthcare industry is estimated to add up to 20 billion annually. Data was extracted for cause of injury, nature of injury and body part injured. Extracted data was analyzed both descriptively and by logistic and linear regression using SAS version 9.2. Results were significant for falls, lifting, being struck and pushing and pulling as major causes for injury. Regarding the nature of injury, sprains and strains constituted the majority of claims. The lower back was the body part most commonly injured in a claim. It was concluded that emphasis must be placed on risk factors for musculoskeletal injuries such as falls, lifting, temporal and environmental factors, age and lifestyle factors rather than needlestick injuries. Results from this study will be used to characterize risk factors for occupational injuries in CNAs and nurses, and to devise and implement preventive measures, including new legislation, to curb such injuries.

3. Potts, Helen. The Role of Social Capital in Organizations: The Precursors and Effects of Social Capital among Certified Nurse Aides in Nursing Homes.

Degree: 2007, University of North Texas

The role of social capital in forming organizational commitment is the focus of this research. Organizational social capital is the idea that social relationships have value in the organization. The theoretical framework is based on Kanter's (1993) structure of organizational commitment. This research views the structure within organizations based on global empowerment, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and social capital. In addition, the role that race, income, and education affect the organizational structure is also taken into account. The organizational configuration was assembled using a structural equation model with latent variables employing a sample of 235 certified nurse aides. The sample was collected from 10 nursing homes in the Dallas-Ft.Worth metropolitan area. It was expected that Kanter's general format is reestablished within the sample. In fact, the study found that empowerment significantly influences job satisfaction. In turn, job satisfaction does foster organizational commitment. Although Kanter's original thesis was supported in this analysis, it was also determined that social capital plays a significant mediating role in creating organizational commitment. Furthermore, this research indicates that social capital alone can create organizational commitment. Thus, in conclusion, this research builds on Kanter's original idea and argues that organizational commitment is based on job satisfaction, global empowerment, and social capital.
