    Nursing research in a global context

    Nursing research in a global context

    Professor Sharon Brownie explains her research on nursing in LMICs Nurses are the largest part of the health care workforce an millions more will be needed in LMIC if high quality care is to be available to everyone. Research that addresses the consequences of the shortage of nurses but also helps generate ideas on solutions is important and should be conducted in partnership with the nursing profession.

    The treatment and outcomes of care for sick newborns

    The treatment and outcomes of care for sick newborns

    Researcher Jalemba Aluvaala tells us about his work concerning newborn care in LMICs. Care for even the sickest newborns in many countries is limited by the resources available but there are some key interventions that can save lives. Delivering these interventions requires doctors and nurses to work together and often it is the continuous care provided by the nursing team together with families that is critical. Despite this a number of babies die and understanding risks is important to help provide information to families, to help plan care and should help us design better systems of care.

    Under pressure, the challenges of neonatal nursing

    Under pressure, the challenges of neonatal nursing

    Jacob McKnight tells us about the challenges faced by nurses caring for newborns in Kenya. Caring for sick newborns in a poorly resourced hospital is a very challenging job. Yet this is not the only challenge many nurses face as they juggle supporting families and lives in a busy city. Some nurses have developed ways to cope in these difficult circumstances but for many the relentless pressure may cause them harm while upholding the ideals of nursing may seem impossible.

    Quantifying nursing care done (or left undone)

    Quantifying nursing care done (or left undone)

    David Gathara tells us about his work leading nursing research Sick newborns require large amounts of nursing time, so what happens when nurses have to care for too many babies? By making direct observations of the care that is given this important new research identified how much care is missed. More care is missed when nurses have more babies to care for showing the direct consequences of health care worker shortages.

    Understanding nurses' work to care for sick newborns

    Understanding nurses' work to care for sick newborns

    Social Scientist Jacinta Nzinga tell us about her research on the care of sick newborns. To really understand the work of nurses in very busy wards where care for sick newborns is provided, you have to be there. Using detailed observations, day, night and weekends, linked to narrative interviews, the routines, compromises and coping strategies that characterise the delivery of hospital care for newborns are brought to light providing critical information to understand why care is missed and to guide improvement efforts.

    Health services that deliver for newborns.

    Health services that deliver for newborns.

    Professor Mike English tells us about the research project Health Services that Deliver for Newborns. Basic hospital care may be key to saving newborn lives. Professor Mike English, University of Oxford, outlines a multidisciplinary project engaging policy-makers and practitioners in Kenya. This project demonstrated poor coverage of Nairobi's 4.25 million population if a sick newborn baby needs quality hospital care. Using novel research approaches the team also identified how severe shortages of nurses contribute to poor quality of care for patients and negatively affect nurses themselves.
