To explore how general practice nurses (GPNs) communicate lifestyle risk reduction with patients presenting for chronic disease consultations.
Qualitative content analysis of video observations.
The audio of 14 video‐recorded GPN chronic disease management (CDM) consultations were transcribed verbatim. Deductive content analysis was undertaken using the exploring, guiding,...
Aims and objectives
This study explores nonverbal communication behaviours between general practice nurses and patients during chronic disease consultations.
Nonverbal communication is an important aspect of nurse–patient lifestyle risk reduction conversations. Despite the growing role of general practice nurses in lifestyle risk modification when managing chronic disease, few studies...
This paper seeks to explore general practice nurses' perceptions of interactional factors supporting communication with patients about lifestyle risk.
Qualitative descriptive study embedded in a concurrent mixed methods design.
Fifteen Australian general practice nurses were interviewed following video‐recorded chronic disease management consultations between August 2017 ‐...
Non‐medical prescribers, including pharmacists, have been found to achieve comparable clinical outcomes with doctors for certain health conditions. Legislation supporting pharmacist prescribing (PP) has been implemented in the United Kingdom (UK), Canada and New Zealand (NZ); however, to date, Australian pharmacists have not been extended prescribing rights. The purpose of this review...
To develop a conceptual model that provides a comprehensive understanding of the structures and processes underpinning patient enablement and satisfaction in general practice nurse consultations.
Current evidence regarding patient satisfaction and enablement arising from general practice nursing care is either quantitative or qualitative. To date, no studies have integrated the results...
The aim of this study was to gain insight into the process of patient enablement in general practice nursing consultations.
Enhanced roles for general practice nurses may benefit patients through a range of mechanisms, one of which may be increasing patient enablement. In studies with general practitioners enhanced patient enablement has been associated with increases in self‐efficacy...
The numbers of nurses in general practice in Australia tripled between 2004 and 2012. However, evidence on whether nursing care in general practice improves patient outcomes is scarce. Although patient satisfaction and enablement have been examined extensively as outcomes of general practitioner care, there is little research into these outcomes from nursing care in general practice. The aim of this...
Nursing roles in general practice have undergone significant expansion, but as yet there are few tools to measure the quality of nursing care in general practice. This study piloted the Patient Enablement and Satisfaction Survey (PESS) to evaluate two aspects of quality of care in this setting.Participants were patients attending nurse-led general and chronic-disease clinics in two general practices...
