Research Nursing Research Newsletter HIGHTLIGHTS Faculty of Nursing, Mahidol University Self-efficacy Promoting Interventions for Breastfeeding Outcomes: An Integrative Review of Research Conducted in Thailand Tassanee Prasopkittikun, Parnnarat Sangperm Abstract: Low breastfeeding rates have continued to generate public health concerns in Thailand, and a number of nursing intervention programs have been implemented among Thai mothers to enhance the breastfeeding outcomes like practice and duration. Enhancement of self-efficacy in breastfeeding is a substantial method used in the interventions because of the evidence supporting the influence of self-efficacy on breastfeeding behavior and duration. However, the state of evidence relevant to the effects of self-efficacy promoting interventions on breastfeeding outcomes has not yet been examined. The purpose of this integrative review was to determine the methodological and substantive features of the studies of self-efficacy promoting interventions for breastfeeding outcomes published between 2005 and 2015, and listed on Thai databases and CINAHL. Methodological quality was assessed using the Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network Methodological Checklist. The review included 10 eligible studies with acceptable quality. No study with randomized control trial design was found. The reviewed outcomes of the interventions including breastfeeding self-efficacy were found in 7 studies, breastfeeding behavior in 7 studies, and number of mothers giving exclusive breastfeeding in 4 studies. The review indicated the positive effects of self-efficacy promoting interventions on the breastfeeding outcomes. However, clinical heterogeneity was found from diverse sample characteristics, different usual nursing practice across the hospitals, varied dose of the self-efficacy promoting interventions given, and different time of outcomes measurement. Due to insufficient rigorous designs and clinical heterogeneity of the studies reviewed, well-designed clinical trials are needed. Source: Prasopkittikun T, Sangperm P.

Davidson, Ketsarin Utriyaprasit, Chukiat Viwatwongkasem, Wittaya Chartbunchachai Abstract: Sepsis is a common problem in patients in emergency rooms that need proper management within 72 hours to prevent clinical deterioration. The objective of this study was to determine factors influencing the clinical deterioration of persons with sepsis. A descriptive correlation study was conducted from September 2014 to February 2015 at 11 hospitals in central Thailand. Recruited into the study were 172 participants presenting with > 2 criteria of systemic inflammatory response syndrome without white blood cell count and shock index >1 at triage, and diagnosed with infectious disease at the 11 emergency departments. Data were collected through interviews, physical examina- tions and reviewing patients’ charts and were analyzed using descriptive statistics and binary logistic regression. Results showed that symptoms of clinical deterioration manifested in 59.3% of participants. Over 40% demonstrated failure of the circulatory system occurred among 77.5% participants within 24 hours of emergency department arrival. Factors influencing clinical deterioration were higher severity of illness, incomplete triage practices and non-achieved performance of sepsis resuscitation bundle. These factors explained 22% of the variance of clinical deterioration. The implications for nursing practice in improving sepsis care are provision of triage training, development of sepsis fast track, and encouragement of compliances with triage assessment protocols and sepsis resuscitation bundle.
