Research Article of Global Journal of Nursing Oncology Care Project with Inter and Multiprofessional Approach: Actions to Minimize Collateral Effects and Suffering, Caused By the Treatment of Chemotherapy Nádia Larissa Henrique de Lima1 *; Gustavo Cavalcante Silva2; Monaly Vital Correia2; Mauricésar Barbosa2; Gabriel Amaral Souza2; Karol Fireman de Farias3 Objective: To report multi and interprofessional experience during extension actions aimed at minimizing the side effects and suffering caused by the treat-ment of chemotherapy. Methods: This is a descriptive study of the type of expe-rience report of the university extension project that focuses on the use of light technologies to cope with routine situations of care practice in an oncology sec-tor. Results: The side effects caused by antineoplastic drugs are part of the day-to-day treatment of cancer patients. Some side effects were listed with patients, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, alopecia, constipation and mouth with metallic or bitter taste from the antineoplastic. Through ingestion of healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, greens and cereals properly listed these unwanted effects can be minimized. Other actions such as music therapy help to alleviate suffering because it causes happiness and satisfaction. Conclu-sion: Health education is an important strategy to share knowledge, especially in the area of relieving suffering through complementary guidelines and thera-pies. Music is a therapeutic and playful instrument and influences the emotions and well-being of individuals. In addition, the actions of the Oncology Care pro-ject strengthen us as a human being and professional in formation. Keywords: Health Education, Medical Oncology, Nutrition Therapy, Nursing Care ...

Staff Nurses Synergistic Attitude Towards Institutional Vision, Mission and Goals Using Bloom’s Taxonomy: An Input to Operations Planning

Research Article of Global Journal of Nursing Staff Nurses Synergistic Attitude Towards Institutional Vision, Mission and Goals Using Bloom’s Taxonomy: An Input to Operations Planning Rock P. Cordero, William D. Taala, Jefferson G. Guerrero Fakeeh College for Medical Sciences Equally important with having a goal and direction in an institution like a hospital is how the people in this institution work together to achieve this. This “togetherness” is aptly expressed in the concept of synergy. This operationalizes what Collins (2001) meant with “right people in the right bus” (Collins, 2001). Synergy is defined as “the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements” (Retrieved from www.dictionary.reference. com/ browse/synergy on February 27, 2018). To achieve this synergy among all stakeholders of educational institutions, there should be a common ground, in which they align themselves with the institutional vision and mission. Whatever the context, the point is the same: If an organization wants to move forward, it needs to develop and understand an agreed on purpose, in educational institutions—the vision, mission, goals and core values. Having strong vision and mission statements can help stakeholders in school reach such a common understanding (Gabriel and Farmer, 2009). This study aims to produce an output that could help in operations planning in the clinical setting. This output determines the extent of synergy among staff nurses with institutional purpose as reflected in their understanding of the institution’s vision, mission, goals, and core values in the order of thinking skills of the Bloom’s taxonomy. Through this descriptive, comparative, correlational research, this purpose may be achieved ...
