Jamesetta A Newland's additional information

Jamesetta Newland is clinical professor emerita at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. A strong proponent of faculty practice, she spent much of her clinical practice time in nurse-managed health centers (NMHCs), holding positions as direct care nurse practitioner (NP), administrative director, and consultant on NMHCs and faculty practice. She has taught graduate students, master's and doctoral, since 1993. Considered an expert in NP education and practice, her services have been sought internationally by schools of nursing in Botswana, China, Japan, and Lithuania, and she was instrumental in establishing new advanced nursing practice master's programs in several countries. At present, she has a five-year appointment to the Fulbright Specialist Roster.

Newland has numerous scholarly publications to her credit and serves as the editor-in-chief of The Nurse Practitioner journal. Diverse activities in professional organizations demand much of her time, but she remains committed to lifelong learning for adults, including nurses, and promotes building partnerships with patients to provide the best care.

Attitudes of registered nurses about the end - Of - life care in multi-profile hospitals: A cross sectional survey

Blaževičienė, A., Laurs, L., & Newland, J. A. (2020). BMC Palliative Care, 19(1). 10.1186/s12904-020-00637-7
Background: End-of-life care is provided in a variety of healthcare settings, not just palliative care hospitals. This is one reason why it is very important to assess all barriers to end-of-life care and to provide safe and quality services to patients. This study was aimed at describing nurses' attitudes in providing end-of-life care and exploring barriers and facilitating behaviors of nurses in multi-profile hospitals in Eastern Europe. Methods: A descriptive, correlational design was applied in this study, using a cross-sectional survey of 1320 registered nurses within 7 hospitals in Lithuania. Results: Registered nurses working in the three different profiles emphasized safe and effective care and the importance of meeting the patient's spiritual needs at the end of life. The main barriers assigned by nurses caring for patients at the end of life were angry family members, inadequate understanding of nursing care by the patient's relatives; lack of time to talk to patients, lack of nursing knowledge to deal with the bereaved patient's family, lack of evaluation of nurses' opinions, and the evasion by physicians to talk about the diagnosis and their over-optimistic view of the situation. The main facilitating behaviors to improve nursing care were end-of-life training, volunteering, and family involvement. Conclusions: Spiritual needs were identified by nurses as the primary needs of patients at the end of life. Family-related barriers remain one of the main barriers to end-of-life care. Also, the behavior of physicians and their relationship with nurses remains one of the most sensitive issues in end-of-life care.
