We are keen for all respiratory nurses to take part in this study “The role of the Respiratory Nurse in the New Zealand.”
We are a group of 2 respiratory Clinical Nurse Specialists and 1 Nurse Practitioner at HVDHB and CCDHB wanting to find out more about Respiratory Nursing in New Zealand.
The aim of the study is to describe the respiratory nurse’s role and to gain a better understanding of this role. This will provide an insight into the skill and diversity of our respiratory nursing work force in New Zealand.
There are 2 parts to this study.
Part one is a questionnaire that will explore the practice of respiratory nurses working with respiratory patients. It is an approximately 15 minute questionnaire covering topics such as area of work, health conditions seen and education background. This is an anonymous questionnaire.
At the end of the questionnaire you will be offered to go to a separate link to do part two, if you are a nurse prescriber.
Part two is a three month self-report of medicines prescribed and patients seen in clinical practice. This involves filling out an excel worksheet for each patient seen – up to 50 patients. Each patient will take approximately 2-5 minutes to fill out. Further information can be found when you click on the link below.
This study has both ethics and locality (HVDHB and CCDHB) approval.
Results of this study will be presented at the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand Conference and written up for publication.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
