Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has had consequences for social, economic, cultural and educational life, affecting nursing training and practice. To date, no previous scoping reviews addressing this objective have been found. This study aims to map the literature related to changes in clinical training for nursing students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: A scoping review will be carried out according to the Joanna Briggs Institute’s latest guidance regarding methodology. A set of relevant electronic databases and grey literature will be searched using terms such as clinical practice, nursing students, COVID-19. Results: This scoping review will consider any type of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods study and systematic review designs for inclusion, focusing on changes in clinical training for nursing students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Conclusion: Pedagogical criteria had to be changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially face-to-face clinical training for nursing students. Identifying the changes in clinical training for nursing students during the COVID-19 pandemic will help educators to understand the potential impact of this specific context and trace possible gaps. This protocol is registered at Open Science Framework.
Celiac disease is characterized as a permanent and chronic intolerance to the gluten ingestion. The only effective treatment is the lifelong gluten-free diet, which implies radical changes in the patient’s life and eating habits with a constant challenge and potential shifts in their health-related quality of life. The health-related quality of life occupies an important place as a research subject in different areas of human activity. However we do not found in the literature specific instruments adapted to the Portuguese reality that could measure the health-related quality of life in celiac patients. Then our goal is to develop the Portuguese version of the Celiac Disease Questionnaire - CDQ (developed by Dr. Winfried Häuser team in 2007), which may contribute to the identification of factors that influence the adult celiac patients health-related quality of life. We carried out the translation, cultural and functional equivalence of measures with a preliminary study. Subsequently we applied the CDQ to 231 celiac patients and proceeded with a component analysis and reliability. As in the original version, the analysis of the Portuguese version suggests the existence of a four dimensions model with a KMO coefficient of 0.897. Nevertheless, we obtained a different item factor loading in each dimension: emotional experience, social participation, fears and concerns, gastrointestinal symptoms. For each dimension the Cronbach's α ranged from 0.71 to 0.89 and an overall value of 0.91. The Portuguese version of the CDC proved to be a specific instrument for health-related quality of life assessment in adult celiac patients.RESUMOA doença celíaca caracteriza-se como uma intolerância permanente e crónica à ingestão de glúten. O único tratamento eficaz é a restrição de glúten da alimentação de forma definitiva, o que implica uma mudança radical nos hábitos alimentares e na vida da pessoa, constituindo um constante desafio e com potenciais alterações na sua perceção de qualidade de vida. Ocupando o estudo da qualidade de vida um alvo de interesse em diversas áreas da atividade humana, não encontrámos na literatura todavia instrumentos, adaptados à realidade portuguesa, que pudessem avaliar a perceção de qualidade de vida na pessoa celíaca adulta. Foi então nosso objetivo desenvolver a versão portuguesa do Celiac Disease Questionnaire - CDQ (desenvolido pela equipa do Doutor Winfried Häuser em 2007), que possa contribuir para a identificação de fatores que influenciam a perceção de qualidade de vida da pessoa celíaca adulta. Procedemos à tradução e equivalência das medidas a nível cultural e funcional através da realização de um estudo preliminar. Aplicamos posteriormente o CDQ a 231 pessoas celíacas adultas e procedemos à sua análise fatorial e consistência interna. Tal como na versão original, a análise da estrutura fatorial da versão portuguesa sugere a existência de quatro dimensões com um coeficiente KMO de 0,897. Todavia, obtivemos um agrupamento diferente dos itens em cada uma das dimensões: experiencia emocional, participação social, medos e preocupação, sintomas gastrointestinais. Para cada dimensão o α de Cronbach variou entre 0,71 e 0,89 e o valor de 0,91 no global. A versão portuguesa do CDC revelou-se um instrumento específico de avaliação da perceção de qualidade de vida sensível e capaz de avaliar de forma individual e específica alguns aspectos da população celíaca adulta.
The objective was to assess the impact of a simulated practice program on the construction of self-confidence for intervention in emergencies and its association with knowledge and performance. This is a quasi-experimental study without control group, with assessment before and after a 15-hour simulated practice program, in nursing students. The students' self-confidence increased significantly as a result of simulated practice with positive and statistically significant association between practical assessment and self-confidence levels.
Background: The Journal Club (JC) is defined as an informal educational meeting providing a forum of discussion that seeks consensus and promotes knowledge sharing and transfer while translating scientific evidence into clinical practice. Objectives: To explore nursing students' perceptions of the JC as a pedagogical strategy in Clinical Teaching.Methodology: Descriptive and exploratory study with a mixed-methods approach to data analysis. The sample consisted of 55 students. The questionnaire was designed and made available online. Results: Students made a positive assessment of this teaching-learning strategy. As main advantages, they identified the possibility of bringing clinical practice closer to scientific evidence and developing critical appraisal skills. One of the disadvantages was the requirement of search skills.
Conclusion:The JC proved to be a rewarding and promising strategy because it adapts to the various challenges of nurses' training, namely the translation of scientific evidence into clinical practice, the development of search skills, and the synthesis of evidence.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
