Families' opinions regarding care in adult intensive care units at a public sector tertiary hospital in Gauteng

Rodrigues, Gayenor 13 June 2012 (has links)
M.Sc.(Nursing), Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, 2012 / The purpose of this study was to describe family members’ opinions regarding the quality of care and decision-making in the adult intensive care units. A quantitative descriptive research design was utilized to meet the study objectives. Structured interviews were conducted using the FS-ICU (24) questionnaire with participants (family members, n=100) drawn from three intensive care units. Descriptive and comparative statistics were used to analyse the data. Satisfaction with care was rated by family members’ as higher than their satisfaction with decision-making. Overall 91.0% (n=91) of family members’ were mostly satisfied with the care provided. Of the 24 items the management of patient symptoms was the most highly rated items. The least satisfied item related to the waiting room, which was rated as 93.0% (n=93) dissatisfactory. Frequency of communication, completeness of information, feeling excluded and unsupported during decision-making and the rigid visiting hours were areas identified for improvement in the ICU. These findings suggest that deficiencies exist in meeting family’ needs. Based on the research findings, it can be concluded that results of this study have supported the existing evidence in literature from previous studies on family satisfaction with care and decision-making in the ICU. Recommendations for nursing practice, education, research and institution are proposed.

Effect of an instructional program on the use of the nursing process in practice

Boyle, Barbara Ann Joyce January 1976 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of an instructional program on the utilization of the nursing process by graduate nurses in the practice area, and on the attitude of the graduate nurse toward the nursing process. Patient records were audited before and after completion of an instructional program to determine the extent to which the nursing process was being used. A questionnaire to determine attitude toward the nursing process that was held by the graduate nurse, was administered to the study and control groups before and after completion of the instructional program. It was hypothesized that there would be no measurable difference in: 1. the frequency with which a defined data base is obtained on individual patients; 2. the number of patient problems identified; 3. the number of patient problems which are consistent with established criteria; 4. the planning phase of the nursing process; 5. the implementing phase of the nursing process; 6. the evaluating phase of the nursing process; or 7. the way in which the graduate nurse views the nursing process, before and after completion of an instructional program by such graduate nurses. All seven null hypotheses were retained, although there was a statistical significance obtained in three of the criteria in the planning phase between the comparison groups of nurses. Those nurses having been exposed to the instructional program, scored higher as a group on the following criteria. These were: 1. expected behavioural outcomes are established; 2. the expected behavioural outcomes are realistic; and 3. the expected behavioural outcomes are related to patient problems identified in the assessment phase. From this study other variables have been identified concerning the use of the nursing process by graduate nurses in the clinical area and their attitude toward it. However, the major limitation of the study was thought to be the inability to compare each nurse's performance, in the study group, in the use of the nursing process before and after completion of the instructional program. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Nursing, School of / Graduate

Becoming an effective practitioner through guided reflection

Johns, Christopher January 1997 (has links)
The study aimed to develop, monitor and explore the process and outcomes of guided reflection and its impact on enabling practitioners to achieve desirable and effective caring practice. A secondary focus of the study was to monitor and explore the process and outcomes of guided reflection as a form of critical action research which may generate theoretical insights regarding its use in clinical supervisory practices. The process referred to as 'guided reflection' was developed and used to guide this study. Guided reflection represents a form of social action research which was framed within an ontology and process of critical and reflexive phenomenology of experience between practitioners and their supervisors over a period of four years. Whilst each guided reflection relationship was written as a critical narrative to illuminate the reflexive development of effective practice, these narratives became a secondary level of analysis to construct meta-narratives of the nature of effective work and dynamics of guided reflection. Various frameworks were developed and tested within a reflexive process that was appropriately informed and juxtaposed with extant theory to adequately interpret and present the process and ou.tc omes of the study. The method and process of guided reflection generated two major empirical and theoretical insights. • 'The 'Being available' framework to know effective caring practice, presented as one major exemplar of 'Pru'. • Meta-reflection of methods and process of guided reflection. Three frameworks in particular are significant: . • 'Being available' as a parallel framework for effective supervision practice. This parallel framework supports the coherence between developmental and research processes. • The Model for Structured Reflection as an heuristic device for knowing reflection. • 'Framing perspectives' as a series of integrated lenses to focus on discrete layers of learning within reflection. The insights gained through the study have considerable significance for informing and guiding the future development of reflective practice within nursing curriculum, clinical supervision within practice, and the future development of nursing knowledge. The development of nursing knowledge is of particular significance in understanding the meaning and nuances of holistic nursing as a lived reality and have significantly contributed to the reflexive development of the Burford NDU Model: Caring in Practice. The study has become a springboard for research to gain further insight into the factors that facilitate or constrain the efficacy of guided reflection in enabling practitioners to know and realise desirable practice within everyday practice.

Cuidado de enfermagem em grupo à famÃlia de crianÃas/adolescentes com transplantes cardÃacos. / Nursing care in the family group of children/adolescents with heart transplants.

Silvania Braga Ribeiro 13 December 2012 (has links)
à importante conhecer o conceito de famÃlia, alÃm da estrutura familiar, suas funÃÃes, papÃis e como seus membros organizam-se e interagem entre si para aumentar nossa percepÃÃo. Objetivamos desenvolver tecnologia de cuidado de enfermagem em grupo à famÃlia. Pesquisa qualitativa, por meio do referencial metodolÃgico de Loomis (1979), usamos a abordagem grupal adotada à famÃlia e crianÃas/adolescentes transplantados cardÃacos, em hospital terciÃrio de referÃncia em Fortaleza-CE, Brasil. O processo grupal foi dividido em trÃs fases: planejamento (objetivos), intervenÃÃo (estrutura e processo) e avaliaÃÃo (resultados), sendo grupo apoio/aprendizagem contemplando os fatores terapÃuticos. O referencial teÃrico foi conduzido pelos pressupostos do Modelo Calgary de AvaliaÃÃo da FamÃlia (MCAF), utilizando como avaliaÃÃo o genograma. Participaram 15 famÃlias, incluÃdo o familiar e a crianÃa e/ou adolescente que havia realizado transplante cardÃaco infantil. Por meio dos critÃrios de inclusÃo e exclusÃo, permaneceram 16 participantes, 8 crianÃas e/ou adolescentes e seus respectivos (8) familiares para pesquisa. A coleta de dados foi desenvolvida de janeiro a outubro de 2012. Os dados utilizados para anÃlise foram: entrevista com a famÃlia, relatÃrio descritivo das sessÃes grupais, com gravaÃÃo de voz e registro de fotos. Quanto aos resultados observamos cada sessÃo de grupo como principais fatores terapÃuticos, coesÃo, catarse, oferecimento de informaÃÃo, altruÃsmo, universalidade e instilaÃÃo de esperanÃa.Analisamos a avaliaÃÃo do grupo e coordenador ao verificar as fases na perspectiva da teoria que constituem os fatores curativos em um grupo de cuidado de saÃde que foram identificados em cada sessÃo, sendo o grupo avaliado como eficaz. Para a enfermeira realizar a prÃtica de grupo no em unidades hospitalares, à preciso disponibilizar planejamento de tempo e das distribuiÃÃo da assistÃncia dedicada, pois muitas vezes à focalizada no atendimento individual o que faz com que torne-a, sobrecarregada no serviÃo. Quanto as conclusÃes desta pesquisa evidenciamos destaque e relevÃncia para a prÃtica desenvolvida pela enfermeira, mostrando que a tecnologia do cuidado de enfermagem com grupo familiar, se torna de fundamental importÃncia e que mostra de modo visÃvel a assistÃncia com criatividade, vÃnculo das relaÃÃes interpessoais e a reduÃÃo do tempo de atendimento a clientela especÃfica. E nestas condiÃÃes a enfermeira torna-se coordenadora de grupo de apoio, trazendo assim suporte e aprendizagem para uma parte da populaÃÃo que nÃo à acolhida ainda por profissionais da saÃde. A partir desta experiÃncia exitosa, sugerimos que nos hospitais pediÃtricos possam realizar prÃtica com grupos e assim estimulando aos profissionais enfermeiros a novas pesquisas sobre tecnologia do cuidado de enfermagem em grupo ao familiar e à crianÃa, pois assim o enfermeiro estarà cada vez mais preparado para este familiar, terà a prÃtica profissional embasada cientificamente, de modo a facultar resultados satisfatÃrios para a instituiÃÃo, famÃlia e sociedade. / The familial relationship frequently are very hard to be understood, then to increase our perception it is important to know the concept and family structure, roles and how the members organize themselves and interact with each other. We aim to develop strategy for nursing care in the family group. In a qualitative approach, through the methodological framework of Loomis (1979). The group approach adopted to the family and child / adolescent cardiac transplant in a tertiary hospital in Fortaleza. The group process is divided by three phases: planning (goals), intervention (structure and process) and evaluation (results), as the main objective of the group were support / learning. The theoretical framework was driven using as the genogram assessment, by model of Calgary Family Assessment (MCAF). The volunteers selected to the study were 15 relatives of children / adolescents who underwent heart transplantation. However through the inclusion and exclusion criteria, remained eight relatives to folow up. The data collection was performed from June to September (2012). The data used for analysis were: descriptive report of the session (audio and photos recorded) and speeches of the volunteers in interview, using the construction of the genogram. At each session, we identified the main therapeutic factors as: cohesion, catharsis, offering information, altruism, universality and instillation of hope that integrate the resolution process for their specific goals. The aims were achieved since we developed the strategy of the nursing care to the family group, using the reference group stages (group development), focusing on the proposed objective: support and learning. Furthermore the group and coordinator evaluation was assessed as being effective, since we could verify the phases from the perspective of the theory that constitute the curative factors in a group of health care that were identified in each session. To accomplish this nursing group practice in the hospital service, takes time and dedication to provide the nurse, that very often overwhelmed in service. We suggest that pediatric hospitals encourage their nurses to perform further research on nursing care in the family group and the child, as well as the nurse will be prepared and scientifically based practice, in order to provide satisfactory results to the institution.
