Abstract:
Purpose: The aim of the study is to discover the impact of clinical nurse specialist 'absence' in the Italian practice. Significance: Clinical Nurses Specialist education is started in Italian University level since 2003. University decides the level and the fields of nurses' specialisation autonomously in based of the a) emerging priorities in health care problems; b) complexity of nursing practice; c) suggestions from international experiences and perspectives (especially USA's one). The National Health Service employed nurses with specialist education but do not recognised different level of responsibility and salary. This barrier discouraged general nurses to follow specialist education. For this reason, a lot of Master places started to be free without nurse's applications and Italian nurses face with the difficult to develop specialisation of the nursing practice. Design: To measure patients nurse's outcomes when they are cared exclusively from general nurses, an observational study design was adopted. Four specialist surgical wards were included and a cohort of patients was monitored. Methods: Researchers adopt the follow nursing outcomes measures: infections, ulcer pressures, falls, readmission, and patients/families complaints. Findings: The study is in process. The end of data collection is planed for next October. Conclusions: N/A Implications for Practice: To confront nursing outcomes with international literature especially from the States were the role of clinical nurse specialist is well developed, helping to develop this role also in the Italian context.
