Nurses’ perceptions of self-management and self-management support of older patients during hospitalization

Nurses’ perceptions of self-management and self-management support of older patients during hospitalization

Samenvatting

Four focus group interviews were held with nurses, recruited from eight wards of two general hospitals, to explore nurses’ perceptions of self-management and self-management support of older patients during hospitalization. A thematic analyze of the interview transcripts was conducted. Regarding nurses understanding of self-management two perceptions emerged namely ‘being self-reliant’ and ‘being in control’. In terms of their understanding self-management support three perceptions emerged: encouraging patients to perform activities of daily living (ADL); stimulating patient participation; and increasing patients’ awareness. We also found seven themes relating to nurses’ beliefs regarding older patients’ self-management and self-management support during hospitalization. Results indicate that nurses have a limited understanding of self-management and do not fully understand what is expected from them with regards to inpatients’ selfmanagement. It is feasible to argue that addressing nurses’ beliefs can influence nurses intention and behavior regarding supporting older inpatients’ self-management.
