Microscopic colitis causes chronic or recurrent non-bloody, watery diarrhoea, which is associated with urgency, faecal incontinence and abdominal pain. The patient's health-related quality of life is often impaired. In microscopic colitis health-related quality of life has been studied using questionnaires originally constructed and validated for patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The aim of this study was to explore the impact of microscopic colitis on everyday life.

Intramuscular injections (IMI) remain a frequent practice in mental health. Few studies have examined the issue of nurses' practices concerning IMI in this domain, and none considered specifically hygiene. Finally, no study appears to have looked at emergency situations and their possible influence on practices. The principal objective of our study was to assess the practices associated with IMI in mental health, especially the hygiene-related practices. The secondary objectives were: 1) to assess the prac...
To identify whether meaning in life has moderating and mediating effects on the relationship between depression and quality of life in patients with dysphagia.
The question is as simple as it is challenging for those who control and determine access to libraries, full-text journal databases and 'the literature'. Can we expect clinicians and practitioners to be able to use, update, understand and implement evidence-based practice (EBP) if they are denied access to the very evidence that they are supposed to be basing their practice upon?

The World Health Organization and Healthy People 2020 emphasize the importance of sexual healthcare. Although the nursing profession has the ability to develop a competent level of sexuality education, sexual healthcare is often ignored in nursing care and education. Many nurses are failing to engage in meaningful conversations about sexual health with patients and this could lead to negative health events. However, patients would like reliable and non-judgmental access to education about sexual health.
We would like to thank Dahee Wi for the interest and comments on our recent publication (Zhu et al., 2018). We welcome this dynamic dialogue on defining the concept of sleep disturbance in people with diabetes. Wi suggested that the attributes, antecedents, and consequences of the concept should be divided separately according to the age of participants and the type of diabetes (Wi, 2019). We agree that the concept of sleep disturbance in people with diabetes could differ depending on patient age and type ...

To discern and understand the responses of nurses to the survivorship needs of patients and family members in adult critical care units.
To examine patient acceptability of wearable vital sign monitoring devices in the acute setting.
The aims of this study were to track changes in patients' knee function, walking ability, and quality of life (QOL) before and after knee arthroplasty surgery and explore factors that influenced these parameters.
This qualitative study explored the experiences of neonatal nurses with facilitating closeness between parents and babies with congenital abnormalities in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
