Funková, Anna ; Rambousková, Kateřina (advisor) ; Antalová, Natália (referee)
The thesis deals with the self-education of critical care nurses after the end of the legal obligation to document it. The aim of this thesis was to find out whether critical care nurses are self-educating and whether they know where to look for educational events. The thesis consists of three parts: theoretical, practical and creating a website. The theoretical part of the thesis introduces the concept of general nursing and learning, lifelong learning, education in selected hospitals, education in selected foreign countries and nursing organizations/web-based educational resources. The practical part consists of a quantitative research survey, which took place mainly in two large teaching hospitals in Prague. The investigation was conducted in the form of a questionnaire that I created for the needs of the diploma thesis. The aim of the thesis was to find out whether general nurses in intensive care are actively self-educating and whether they know where they can find educational resources/events themselves. The output of the thesis was the creation of a website where an effort was made to consolidate the websites already available into one place to provide a simplified and targeted search for educational events and resources. The website was created in collaboration with an IT developer. Key...
Technique of oral hygiene in intensive care
Navrátilová, Eliška ; Rambousková, Kateřina (advisor) ; Antalová, Natália (referee)
This thesis deals with the procedures and equipment used in the performance of oral hygiene in patients hospitalized in intensive care. The aim was to find out how oral hygiene is currently performed in intensive care beds at the University Hospital Královské Vinohrady and what aids and solutions are used by non-medical health staff. On the basis of the information obtained, a uniform procedure was subsequently developed that could serve as a template for the creation of a new nursing standard that would serve as a guide for nurses e bedside of patient how to perform oral hygiene, unify the procedures of individual departments and thus contribute to improving the quality of nursing care in this particular area. At the same time, the procedure was implemented in bedside practice immediately after the data collection from this research, so that it could be assessed in a subsequent pilot study for the impact of updated and specified techniques in patients with the same sample characteristics. Indeed, the follow-up study will assess the impact of the oral hygiene technique on the microbial colonisation of the airways. Keywords: intensive care, oral hygiene, non-ambulatory patient, VAP prevention
