Impact of self-directed learning readiness and learning attitude on problem-solving ability among Chinese undergraduate nursing students

learning is highest, whereas the self-management is lowest, and Wang also demonstrated the similar results. That is, nursing students are willing to accept new things and challenges. 8 They also desire to learn independently. But their abilities of self-management are poor, such as lacking organization and appropriate way to search useful information. Using appropriate method to carry on the study is also absent. So, it is an effective way to improve self-directed learning readiness by enhancing self-management. Concerning learning attitude, the score of learning

However, inconsistent data standardization methods and different nursing terminologies are important barriers to the sharing of nursing information and data. When the sharing of information between systems is restricted, nursing big data become incompatible and incomparable. In addition, information technology education in the nursing field in China began relatively late, meaning that information technology in the nursing field in China is underdeveloped and that

Obstacles in employing evidence-based practice by nurses in their clinical settings: a descriptive study

1 Introduction Nurses undertake a vital responsibility in caring for hospitalized patients, as this obedience expends nearly all time in direct patient care. Findings from numerous studies suggest that 30% to 40% of patients do not obtain care per evidence. 1 Nowadays, nursing practice requires the utilization of information on executive skills to offer best practice and high-quality patient care outcomes. 2 Nurses reported the least applications of evidence-based practices (EBPs). Enhancing nursing knowledge of and devotion to EBPs is one of the initial

Pomanjkljivosti Poslovnih Procesov v Zdravstvenih Organizacijah: Primer Okulistične Ambulante

Namen: Razumevanje poslovnih procesov je ključni element pri prenovi poslovanja. Kljub temu pa mu v praksi slovenskega zdravstva namenjamo premalo pozornosti. Namen raziskave je pokazati, da je s pomočjo ustreznega popisa poslovnih procesov mogoče prepoznati neučinkovite elemente, ki povzročajo nevidne izgube v poslovanju.

Metode: Uporabili smo so metodo pregleda literature, metodo opazovanja, metodo intervjuja in metodo modeliranja procesov ter v konkretni okulistični ambulanti popisali ključne poslovne procese s pomočjo dogodkovno vodenih procesnih verig ter ugotavljali pomanjkljivosti.

Rezultati: Zaradi pomanjkljivosti v poslovnih procesih v konkretni okulistični ambulanti z dvema zaposlenima neracionalno izrabijo približno 25,5 ur delovnega časa na mesec (15,2 % celotnega delovnega časa na enega zaposlenega).

Zaključek: Na podlagi ugotovitve, da so tolikšne pomanjkljivosti prisotne že v manjši zdravstveni organizaciji z dvema zaposlenima, lahko pričakujemo, da njihov obseg v kompleksnejših organizacijah še bistveno večji. Vodstvom zdravstvenih organizacij priporočamo, da omenjeni problematiki posvetijo posebno pozornost ter izvedejo popis in optimizacijo poslovnih procesov. Omenjene dejavnosti je potrebno izvesti pred uvedbo ali prenovo informacijskega sistema.
