    A valid, reliable measure of family caregivers’ knowledge about delirium was not located in the literature; such an instrument is essential to assess learning needs and outcomes of education provided. The purpose of the current study was to (a) develop a family Caregiver Delirium Knowledge Questionnaire (CDKQ) based on the Symptom Interpretation Model; and (b) establish validity and reliability of the measure. The 19-item CDKQ was developed and administered to 164 family caregivers for community-dwelling older adults. Descriptive statistics were examined for all variables. Psychometric testing included confirmatory factor analysis, item-to-total correlations, and internal consistency reliability. A three-factor model provided the best fit for the data. The findings support initial validity and reliability of the CDKQ with family caregivers. Although the CDKQ was developed for use with family caregivers, it has potential for use with other caregivers, such as home health aides

    Background: Family caregiver is the most important person who cares for patient with schizophrenia. However when care is provided for long time, he/she may experiences the burden.Purpose: The purpose was to review concept and factors related to burden on family caregivers caring for patients with schizophrenia.Method: A literatures were searched from databases: Pubmed, CINAHL, and Science Direct. Key words used to retrieve literature include caregiver burden and schizophrenia. Searching was limited in English language, full text, and the year of publication from 2000 to 2009 was used.Results: Twenty two studies were reviewed in this paper. The result showed that the caregivers caring for patients with schizophrenia experience burden. Burden was defined as a negative impact of caring for the impaired person experienced by caregiver on their activity (objective burden) or feeling (subjective burden) that involves emotional, physical health, social life, and financial status. Factors related to burden on family caregiver were grouped into: 1) caregiver‟s factors included age, gender, educational level, income, health status, and spent time per day, knowledge of schizophrenia, culture, and coping; 2) patient‟s factors included age, clinical symptoms, and disability in daily life; 3) environmental factors included mental health service and social support.Conclusion: Definition of burden have quite same meaning and mostly factors focus on the patient‟s symptoms, demographic factors of caregiver, and time spent per day. Most of studies cannot be generalized due to small sample used in the study and that too conducted in western countries. For further research, the correlation between burden and resources of family caregiver should be investigated particularly in eastern country

    Objectives To test the feasibility of a telephone-based intervention that prepares family caregivers to recognize delirium symptoms and how to communicate their observations to healthcare providers. Design Mixed-method, pre–post quasi-experimental design. Setting A Midwest Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a nonprofit health system. Participants Forty-one family caregiver-older adult dyads provided consent; 34 completed the intervention. Intervention Four telephone-based education modules using vignettes were completed during the 3 weeks before the older adult\u27s hospital admission for elective hip or knee replacement. Each module required 20 to 30 minutes. Measurements Interviews were conducted before the intervention and 2 weeks and 2 months after the older adult\u27s hospitalization. A researcher completed the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) and a family caregiver completed the Family Version of the Confusion Assessment Method (FAM-CAM) 2 days after surgery to assess the older adults for delirium symptoms. Results Family caregivers’ knowledge of delirium symptoms improved significantly from before the intervention to 2 weeks after the intervention and was maintained after the older adult\u27s hospitalization. They also were able to recognize the presence and absence of delirium symptoms in the vignettes included in the intervention and in the older adult after surgery. In 94% of the cases, the family caregiver rating on the FAM-CAM approximately 2 days after the older adult\u27s surgery agreed with the researcher rating on the CAM. Family caregivers expressed satisfaction with the intervention and stated that the information was helpful. Conclusion Delivery of a telephone-based intervention appears feasible. All family caregivers who began the program completed the four education modules. Future studies evaluating the effectiveness of the educational program should include a control group

    An Exploration of the Culture Care Experiences of Puerto Rican Families with a Child with Special Health Care Needs as Perceived by the Family Caregiver

    Advances in medical care have resulted in rising numbers of children living with chronic illness. Nurses care for families with special needs during all aspects of their care from the office visit, the inpatient stay, and in the home. Therefore, nurses need to be highly skilled and sensitive to the families\u27 cultural needs in order to assist with coping and the daily challenges they face. This study explored the culture care experiences of Puerto Rican families with a child with special health care needs as perceived by the family caregiver. This family member is the individual who has the greatest amount of interaction with the health care system and is most intimately involved in the care of the special health care needs child. Interviews with the family caregiver, using a self-developed semi-structured interview guide explored the culture care experiences of the family caregiver. The Culture Care Diversity and Universality Theory guided the study and Leininger\u27s four phases of data collection and analysis was implemented. A sample of 16 general and 8 key informants were interviewed and data was organized and managed using NVIVO 10.0 software. The findings included the identification of 14 categories, and 5 patterns from which emerged the themes of: 1) The family caregiver describes the of burden of care, 2) the family caregiver perceives caring behaviors as attentiveness and respect, and 3) the family caregiver\u27s feelings of responsibility for the child creates fear and uncertainty in their ability to meet the child\u27s needs. The themes indicate that nurses must ensure the development of a trusting, respectful therapeutic relationship with the caregiver and the child in order to promote confidence in the caregiver as well as decrease stress and anxiety levels

    Exploring the family caregiving phenomenon in nursing documentation

    Get PDF
    Background: Today, an increasing number of family members assume a great responsibility for taking care of a dependent person at home. Nurses must prepare the family caregiver for this transition—to be a caregiver, by providing the best solution for each case. Taking care of a dependent person is not an easy task; it involves cognitive and instrumental skills to perform this role. Aim: We intend to study the types and frequencies of nursing diagnosis related to the family caregiver, documented in the Nursing Information System (NIS) in use, in a District Hospital in Portugal. Method: The data were extracted from the Nursing Information System to a new database, and, after codification, we analyzed the nursing diagnosis related to the family caregiver. ICNP ® (International Classification for Nursing Practice) was used as referential terminology in data analysis. Findings: The analysis shows that more than 40% of patients admitted with nursing diagnosis are related to the family caregiver, even in readmissions cases. These nursing diagnoses are centered on the prevention of patient’s complications, such as pressure ulcer, replacement in self-care activities, i.e., feeding, optimization of the family caregiver role, and in the promotion of the therapeutic regimen management. The major skills that we found in diagnosis related to the family caregiver were associated with knowledge acquisition. Conclusion: We conclude that, in many readmissions cases, family caregivers continue to have many weaknesses, specifically related to their level of knowledge and skills learning. This finding opens a window of opportunity to develop solutions that will help these families take care of a dependent person at home, including web-based solutions that can be a tool to promote the continuity of care.info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersio
