Supporting evidence-based practice: Changes in service provision and practitioners’ attitudes following EBP Service Centre consultation – a qualitative study / Evidenzbasierte Praxis unterstützen: Veränderungen der Arbeitsweise und der Einstellungen von Ergotherapeuten/-innen durch die Nutzung eines EBP Service Centers - eine qualitative Studie

Introduction Evidence-based practice (EBP) started at the medical school of McMaster University in Canada in the 1970s. Since then, it has spread to all health professions and is now acknowledged worldwide. There are different definitions for EBP, but all acknowledge the integration of the best research evidence with clinical expertise, the patients’ unique values and the circumstances for clinical decisions to best serve the clients (Hoffmann, Bennett, & Del Mar, 2013 ; Law & MacDermid, 2014a ). Law, Pollock, and Stewart (2004 , p.14) defined EBP as ‘ a

War as nothing but a duel: war as an institution and the construction of the Western military profession

less than victory and defeat in future wars. Yet, while Bacevich (1995 : 60) saw that these professional limitations were not new, he pessimistically saw that “most of it is unavoidable”. This article takes a slightly more positive take on the issue. None of this may be new, but it is not impossible to reinvent this professional vocabulary. The aim of this paper is thus to contribute to this debate through the investigation of the most central institution of the military profession – war. In more concrete terms, this paper follows the observation made by Philip

Zur Themennummer „Bildung und Versorgung Zusammenführen“ „Health Universities: Bildung und Versorgung zusammenführen“ war das Thema derändertagung vom 10. / 11. September 2015 in Winterthur am Departement Gesundheit der Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften ZHAW.

GPs, nurses and pharmacists as prescribers in primary care: an exploration using the social identity approach / Hausärzte/-innen, Diplomierte Pflegefachpersonen und Apotheker/-innen als Arzneimittelverschreiber/-innen: eine Exploration mit dem Ansatz der Sozialen Identität

threaten the traditional dominance of medicine within health care ( Weiss, 2011 ). Prescribing is a clear demonstration of clinical autonomy, core to professional identity and dominance of medicine ( Freidson, 1970 ; Freidson, 1985 ; Willis, 2006). Indeed prior to the extension of prescribing rights to other professional groups, prescribing was the activity that demarcated the medical profession from other professional groups ( Britten, 2001 ). With the extension of prescribing, the prized medical activity shifted from prescribing to diagnosis, such that, as noted by

definitions and classifications of procedural skills. Michels, Evans, and Blok (2012) identified that procedural skills are not exactly defined in the field of health professions education. Frequently, they are categorised under the umbrella term ‘clinical skills’. However, there is a lack of standardisation. Simpson et al. (2002) separated the practical procedures from communication skills, clinical skills, and other skills in the Scottish doctor learning outcomes. In contrast, the General Medical Council in the UK does not separate between procedural skills and

Possible influence of social media on shaping the image of nurses on the Internet


Introduction. Nowadays, a professional image is an important element of the identity of individual professions. Its formation is a difficult process, dependent on many factors, including the use of new communication channels, such as social media, which in recent years have become a space for expressing social opinion, including those concerning individual professions.

Aim. The analysis of the possibilities of using social media in shaping the image of nurses on the Internet.

Material and methods. The study was carried out using the comparative method. The subject of the research were websites (fanpages) related to the professional environment of nurses on the social networking site, chosen deliberately according to the adopted criteria.

Findings. During the research, differences in the strategy of administering the analyzed websites were identified, depending mainly on the subject matter and purpose of publishing the content. The topicality, visual attractiveness and cohesion were characterized by a high level. The posts appearing on individual websites were written in the language of the recipients, with different publication frequency. The websites created a long-term group of recipients and tried to influence the image of nursing in Poland in a positive way.

Conclusions. Content published on social media can affect both the positive and negative image of the nurse in the public opinion. Among the factors that do not affect the image of nurses can be indicated, among others, offensive language of comments and displaying negative traits of nurses. Positive reception guarantees current knowledge in the field of nursing and emphasizing professional competences.
