Pregnancy and childbirth Roma women in the context of transcultural care
Trávníčková, Monika ; Tollarová, Blanka (advisor) ; Hnilicová, Helena (referee)
The thesis deals with pregnancy and childbirth among Roma women in the context of transcultural care. In the theoretical part, three main topics relevant to the subject of the thesis are addressed: (i) transcultural care and its development both abroad and in the Czech Republic, (ii) the Roma way of life with a special focus on those aspects affecting the way of perceiving and experiencing the pregnancy and childbirth by Roma women, and (iii) recent trends in providing care to pregnant and labouring women. The empirical part includes a qualitative research into how Roma women perceive and experience pregnancy and childbirth, and what characteristics from the perspective of midwives make them different from the majority society women. Using qualitative research based on interviews with Roma women and midwives I gained valuable data upon which I have identified cultural differences which may affect Roma women's access to prenatal care, the manner of pregnancy planning, and the perception of pregnancy or parturition itself. Based on these findings, I have analysed the applicability of the transcultural care model to Roma women. The main objective is to help midwives to better understand different situations they may encounter during the caregiving Roma women. Key words: culture, transcultural care,...

Pižlová, Martina ; Tollarová, Blanka (advisor) ; Loučka, Martin (referee)
This dissertation originates in research project Potřeby a podpora pracovníků poskytujících paliativní péči v hospicích (FHS_P19_2014_068) (Paliative Hospices Care Staff Needs and Support) which was implemented in 2015. The dissertation deals with needs of hospices staff. These are derived from demands and requirements placed on the staff and correlate with their workload. I express management strategies and attitudes related to staff support. In the theoretical part of the dissertation I survey organization culture and ways and means of staff care. One of the care forms may be supervision. I⁠ focus on its possible form (shape) and supervisor's function. The empirical part of the dissertation is based on the research performed in two hospices. I focus on facility description and provided care. It is based on conversations with staff and management of these facilities. I try to depict the way management views the staff support, demanding situations they are exposed to and their idea of management support. Last but not least I⁠ focus on the supervision area, the way the staff perceives it, to what extent they see it as a contribution (benefit) and what do they expect of it. Powered by TCPDF (

Sobotová, Zdeňka ; Tollarová, Blanka (advisor) ; Marková, Monika (referee)
TITLE: Volunteer Management in Hospices AUTHOR: Bc. Zdeňka Sobotová KEY WORDS: hospice, palliative care, volunteering, volunteer management, Volunteer Service Manager This thesis deals with the management of the volunteer program in hospice, mainly from the perspective of the Volunteer Service Managers (VSMs). In the empirical part it brings description of the problems and issues VSMs are facing in eight Czech hospices. Among the main findings of the author are that volunteering in hospices deals with little support from management, lack of finance and difficult acceptance by the staff. The time VSMs can devote to volunteers is too little or too vaguely defined, which does not allow them to really develop the volunteer program. In none of the hospices visited volunteer program evaluation does not take place. Mobile hospices are facing concerns about the responsibilities of volunteers and difficulties in communication with families, which in some hospices lead to the fact that the volunteers in direct care are not involved. In the theoretical part of this work the author offers answers that bring literature to the problems described by her research. Together with the best advice received from respondents of her research are then summarized in the form of a practical handbook for VSMs, which can be...

How do technologies influence the interaction between nurse and patient?
Chalabalová, Zdeňka ; Tollarová, Blanka (advisor) ; Drábková, Hana (referee)
The thesis deals with technologies that nurses use in their work. These technologies are computers and tablets when nurses write electronic nursing documentation, use barcode readers when administering medications to clients of health services and in collecting blood and other laboratory samples. The theoretical part is devoted to medical and nursing documentation what legislation is in force, what the content of documentation is. After that there are presented companies that provide digitization and organization, where the technologies are used. In the empirical part I used qualitative research: in-depth interviews, observation and analysis of time frames. I examined how these technologies affect the work of nurses at which action is used by nurses and how they are perceived in their practice. The research was conducted in the hospital where digitisation has succeeded and the vision is a "paperless" hospital. The research has shown that nurses acknowledge the electronic documentation, but they are not fully identified with barcode readers. The process of implementation and organization of work has great influence on the adoption of new technology. This pilot research on the use of technology has opened new topics and directions for other research, which may also have practical applications. Key...
