First, a retrospective study examined the prevalence of incontinence in residents living at long-term care facilities. Results showed that 16.8% had suffered from some form of fecal problems, and 8.2% experienced severe symptoms. The findings can help nursing practitioners by reminding them to assess this condition regularly in long-term care and to take the appropriate treatment steps. This could include developing systems for multidisciplinary collaboration, specific interventions or treatments tailored to each person’s needs, caregiver training or education on safe toileting practices, or exploring other options such as lifestyle modifications or medications that may improve symptoms. This study was ethically conducted without direct contact with the participants. Therefore, there weren’t any ethics violations.
Second, the study examined whether an exercise program was effective in reducing pain among people who have chronic musculoskeletal problems (such as rheumatoid). There was statistically significant reduction in self-reported pain intensity in response to the exercise program, as compared to the baseline measurement taken before starting the intervention. These findings can be applied practically by nurses who work with patients suffering from chronic musculoskeletal conditions—they could consider recommending physical activity programs like this one as part of their overall treatment approach for these patients if clinically indicated based on individual assessment and evaluation criteria. Ethical considerations were taken into account in this research. All participants gave written consent to participate in the collection process. Additionally, processes were established for data confidentiality during implementation of the research methodology and afterward reporting. This was done so that participant privacy rights would not be violated throughout the entire research process.
