Studie: Online-Befragung zum Thema ALTE (acute life threatening events)
Eine Kinderkrankenschwester aus England bittet um Beteiligung bei einer wissenschaftlichen Arbeit zum Thema ALTE (acute life threatening events). Die Online-Befragung dauert 10-15 Minuten. Solange der Fragebogen aufgerufen werden kann, findet die Befragung auch noch statt. Herzlichen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung.
My name is Adrienne McCabe - I am a nurse who works at the Birmingham Children's Hospital in the UK and I am currently doing my PhD.
My PhD is looking at how we can support nurses who work in ward areas who care for children who have acute life threatening events (ALTE). An ALTE may include a cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest or a call for immediate assistance. I have previously worked to develop a Paediatric Early Warning System and my interest has moved from the clinical skills and education required for these events to the psychological and emotional support that nurses may need to cope with these events. I am looking to see if we can prepare nurses for the stress and anxiety of being involved in these events and what support might help to alleviate the stress and anxiety after these events.
As part of my PhD program of work I have completed an electronic survey of practice across Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA to see if anyone else is already doing some work in this area. There is a huge variation in practice ranging from nothing through to Critical Incident Stress Management Teams.
I now wish to extend the survey into Europe to see what practices are taking place.
I am asking for a representative from your hospital to complete the survey to identify what practices takes place in relation to preparing or supporting nurses who care for children who have ALTE's in a ward area. Representatives from other hospitals have included Ward Managers, Nurse Educators, Clinical SKills Facilitators or Resuscitation Officers. This list is not exhaustive and I am happy for you to pass the email on to the most appropriate person within your organisation.
The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete (depending on how much you have to say). All of the answers will be annonymised prior to publication.
Here is a link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Y58VW6J
If you could take the time to fill this out I would really appreciate it. This will all contribute to the development of pilot interventions through my PhD that will hopefully help nurses by the bedside cope with these events. Can you please make sure you include which institution you work for in the survey responses please. Again, the results will be annonymised but your answers will help with my reporting.
I would hope that you could complete the survey by the 30th of September please.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. If you think that you are not the right person to complete the survey could you please suggest someone whom you think might be able to help me?
I look forward to hearing from you.
