to evaluate the efficacy of an intervention combining videoconferencing and telephone contact compared to standard post partum care of recent mothers attending health centres in Catalonia were recorded.
multicentre, randomised parallel controlled clinical trial.
1598 post partum women with Internet access attending eight 'Attention to Sexual and Reproductive Health' (Catalan acronym ASSIR) units at Primary Health Care centres, in Catalonia (Spain).
at each of the eight ASSIR units, 100 women were randomly assigned to the intervention group (IG) and 100 to the control group (CG). Women in the IG could consult midwives by videoconference or telephone and could also receive standard care. Women in the control group received standard care from midwives at their health centres or at home.
number and type of visits, reasons for consultation, type of feeding at six weeks and women's satisfaction with the intervention on a scale of 1 to 5.
1401 women were studied (80.9% of the initial sample), 683 in the IG and 718 in the CG. Two hundred and seventy-six women (40.4%) used videoconferencing or telephone in the IG. The mean total visits, virtual and face-to-face, was higher in IG women than in controls (2.74 versus 1.22). IG women made fewer visits to the health centre (mean=1) than CG women (mean=1.17). Both differences were statistically significant, with p<0.001 and p=0.002 respectively. The prevalence of breast feeding was similar in the two groups (IG 64.5%, and CG 65.4%). The mean overall satisfaction of women with midwife care was very high in both groups (IG 4.77, CG 4.76).
virtual care via videoconferencing is effective for post partum women. It reduces the number of health centre visits and allows mothers to consult health staff immediately and from their own home.

To know if there are differences between the critical care units and the medical-surgical care units regarding the perception of the nurses working in National Health System hospitals about their work environment, burnout level and job satisfaction.
A cross-sectional study was conducted with 6,417 nurses from the medical-surgical care units and with 1,122 nurses from critical care units of 59 Spanish hospitals with more than 150 beds. Socio-demographic, job satisfaction, perception of work environment (Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index [PES-NWI questionnaire]) and burnout measured with the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) data were collected.
The PES-NWI showed differences in 4 out of its 5 factors. It showed better values in medical-surgical units in all the factors, except for Staffing and resource adequacy (P<.001), where critical care units showed a mean level of agreement of 2.41 versus 2.19 for the medical-surgical units. Regarding burnout, this was higher in the medical-surgical care units (P=.039) where 23% (952) of the nurses had high levels. Job satisfaction was lower in the critical care units (P=.044) with 70% (578) of nurses being very or strongly satisfied.
The opinion of the nurses, working in critical care units about their hospital is unfavorable. They showed lower levels of burnout than those working in medical-surgical units.

To determine the profile of nurses in public hospitals in Murcia and to assess how they perceive their work environment, the quality of care and their level of burnout (the RN4CAST project repetition).
A cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out in 8 hospitals in Murcia. Data were collected between 2009 and 2010 from 687 nurses (stratified by the type of unit) using a self-completed questionnaire with 149 items covering variables related to sociodemographics; work; perception of the work place (PES-NWI); burnout (Maslach Burnout Inventory); and the quality of patient care, and patient safety. Analysis: Non parametric tests, for two samples or k samples according to the comparison.
A total of 495 questionnaires were collected (72%). Most respondents were female (80.4%) having a mean age of 34.1 (SD=7.1) years, and they had been working for 9.4 (SD=7.4) years. Just over one-quarter (25.7%) had carried out more than 300hours of training in the previous 24 months. The patient/nurse ratio was 11.7 (SD=3.6), varying between hospitals. The nurses reported 25% of hospitals as having an unfavorable work environment, whereas 37.5% had favorable ones; large hospitals were less highly valued. Few respondents intended to give up their jobs (16.8%). Burnout levels revealed emotional exhaustion in 18.4% of respondents; depersonalization in 7.5%, and personal fulfillment in 28.8%. Perception of quality varied between centers and the perception of adverse effects was more favorable in small hospitals.
Our professionals were generally satisfied, but given the unfavorable work environment, measures should be adopted for improving well-being and reducing weaknesses.

To determine how prevalent circadian rhythm impairments are in nurses working in medical, surgical and intensive care units in five Spanish hospitals and how the quality of night-time sleeping and sleepiness affect the nurses' morning and evening chronotypes.
Shift work is a recognized work pattern for nurses in all countries. Given the important role that nurses play in hospital care, it is vital to establish what repercussions this has on the nurses' working schedules and how any disturbance in circadian rhythm affects patient safety.
A multicentre, observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study in seven hospitals in the Spanish National Health System.
A stratified sample of 1,300 nurses is being collected in three types of units: medical, surgical and intensive care. The 3-year study started in January 2012 and will continue until December 2014, with no exclusion criteria. The Kronowise(®) will be used to monitor the nurses' circadian rhythms, by recording their activity, position and wrist temperature. We will also use three questionnaires to evaluate sleep quality, daytime drowsiness and chronotype: (a) Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index; (b) Epworth Daytime Sleepiness Scale; and (c) Morning and Evening Questionnaire. Data will be collected from each hospital and statistical analysis will be carried out using the SPSS 19.0.
The study findings will show the current state of the nurses' circadian rhythms and how shift work can affect them and their job performance. Funding for this 3-year study was granted in December 2011 by the Spanish Health Research Fund (PI 11/00646, Health Ministry). This project is also funded by the Instituto de Salud Carlos III (RETICEF, RD12/0043/0011, RD12/0043/0006).

To analyze the relationship between the work environment and burnout of nurses and the quality of care for patient safety at the Spanish National Health System Hospitals included in SENECA and RN4CAST studies.
Descriptive study with a secondary analysis that compares data of 984 patient records, 1469 patient, and 1886 professional surveys from SENECA project, with 2139 nurses' surveys from RN4CAST study, in 24 hospitals. Adverse events data related to care, and patient's and professional's perception of safety were compared with work environment (measured by the Nursing Work Index) and burnout (measured by Maslach Burnout Inventory).
There was a statistically significant relation of pain with «Staffing and resource adequacy» (r=-0,435, p=0,03) and nosocomial infection with «Nursing foundations for quality of care» (r=-0,424; p=0,04) and «Nurse participation in hospital affairs» (r=-0,516, p=0,01) of the Nursing Work Index. The hospital classification obtained from the Nursing Work Index was associated with the patients' perception of safety (r=0,66, p<0,01). Professionals' perception of participation in patient safety issues was associated with the five factors of the Nursing Work Index (r ∈ [|0,41|-|0,78 |], p<0,046) and with Maslach emotional exhaustion (r=-0,518, p=0,01).
The organizations that foster a supportive work environment will have patients that perceive safer care. In addition, proper resource management could decrease the occurrence of adverse events such as pain.

Objetivo: Estudiar la validez y la fiabilidad de la escala EMINA© para valorar el riesgo de desarrollar úlceras por presión. Diseño: Observacional de tipo transversal. Ámbito de estudio: Los diez hospitales del Institut Català de la Salut ubicados en Cataluña. Se ha realizado en los años 1998 y 1999. Sujetos de estudio: Enfermos ingresados en las diferentes unidades de los hospitales mencionados, excepto en las unidades de corta estancia (área de 24 horas, urgencias, etc.) y en las unidades de pediatría y neonatología. Se seleccionaron 1.172 pacientes para evaluar la fiabilidad y 673 para evaluar la validez. Se utilizó una técnica de muestreo aleatorio. Resultados: Se evaluó la fiabilidad interobservador, obteniendo un coeficiente de correlación intraclases para la puntuación total de la escala de 0,93 (IC del 95%, 0,93-0,94). El índice kappa ponderado para cada uno de los cinco criterios de la escala oscila entre 0,72 (IC del 95%, 0,66-0,78) para el más bajo, que es el de nutrición y 0,92 (IC del 95%, 0,90-0,94) para los más altos, que son estado mental y actividad. Para la validez de criterio se obtuvo la curva ROC, con un área por debajo de la misma de 0,822 (EE = 0,015; IC del 95%, 0,79-0,85). Conclusiones: La escala EMINA© tiene una gran fiabilidad, por lo que puede ser utilizada por diferentes enfermeras en los centros asistenciales, y ha resultado ser válida para identificar a los enfermos ingresados en hospitales de agudos que tienen riesgo de desarrollar úlceras por presión.
