Michelle L Ore, Karen J Foli
Background: Cancer survivors who have completed active treatments experience challenges in the survivorship phase of cancer care. Survivors transitioning through an illness experience negotiate former roles and relationships and reevaluate their self-identity. Reintegration of post-treatment cancer survivors has not been analyzed; however, nurses with a clear understanding of reintegration influence holistic care. Purpose: The goal of this artricle is to provide a theoretical definition of the concept of reintegration for cancer survivors post-treatment...

Carolyn Fisher Atkinson
The art and practice of blessing is explored through various cultural, religious, and experiential lenses. The "Blessing of the Hands" ritual offers an example of a practice offered by, and experienced by, holistic nurses and others in both clinical and educational settings. Consistent with holistic nursing values, the state evoked by a ritual of blessing can offer nurses a framework for heightened intentionality and presence, as well as appreciation for the sacredness of one's work. It can also serve to enhance a sense of safety, protection, and belonging in patients or clients...

Cheryl M Patton
Phenomenological research is increasing in popularity in nursing research for good reason. The qualitative research method allows an in-depth exploration of patient lived experience. This knowledge has the potential to enhance quality of holistic patient care. To undertake this method of inquiry, however, it is imperative that holistic nurse researchers understand the philosophical underpinnings of the method and are familiar with the two major types of phenomenology in order to approach the study in a scholarly manner...

Method: The methodological guidelines provided by Sousa and Rojjanasrirat were used to examine the psychometric properties of the BIAC...

Background: Gut microbes influence the development several chronic conditions marking them as targets for holistic care, prevention strategies, and potential treatments. Microbiome studies are relatively new to health research and present unfamiliar terms to clinicians and researchers. "Dysbiosis" often refers to an alteration in the gut microbiome, but conceptual clarification is rarely provided. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to refine a conceptual definition of dysbiosis based on a review of nursing literature...

Aims: To discover how nurses understand spirituality and spiritual care and what affects nurses' understanding of these terms. Method: A literature search was conducted in CINAHL Plus, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar for research articles dated between 2010 and 2018 that were published in English. Using the Critical Appraisal Skills Program checklist for systematic reviews, nine articles met the inclusion criteria for this review. Most of these articles reported quantitative studies. Results: Although nurses recognize the importance of spirituality and spiritual care in nursing and have ascribed a diversity of meanings, there remains some confusion about what these terms mean...

Cancer presents uncertainties for individuals of any age; however, emerging and young adults (EYA) are challenged to cope with developmental tasks in addition to cancer-related stressors. Guided by the double ABC-X model and biopsychosocial-spiritual framework, the current study investigates coping strategies used by this population and the role of psychological resources (perception of parental care/control and spirituality) on their coping ability. Recruited from online social media, 210 EYA cancer survivors self-reported demographic, medical information, and completed the Brief Cope scale...

REVIEW
Noreen Cavan Frisch, David Rabinowitsch
Background: Nurses and others have used various terms to describe our caring/healing approach to practice. Because terms used can influence our image of ourselves and the image others have of us, we sought to clarify their meanings. Questions: How are the terms holistic nursing, integrative health care , and integrative nursing defined or described? Do we identify with these definitions/descriptions? Are the various terms the same or are they distinct? Method: We conducted an integrated review of peer-reviewed literature following the process described by Whittemore and Knafl...

The purpose of this article is to report a case study of the effect of therapeutic drumming on motor, communication skills, and behavior of a preteen diagnosed with agenesis of the corpus callosum. This 12-year-old participated in 30- to 45-minute weekly sessions over a 12-month period in which rudimentary drumming exercises were used to analyze and then measure any changes in equilibrium reactions, postural transfers, and trunk control. Measurable documentation evidenced marked improvement in motor skills while suggesting communication and behavioral improvement...

Purpose: While exercise is an effective intervention used to minimize side effects associated with chemotherapy, tai chi (TC) exercise for persons actively receiving chemotherapy remains understudied. The purposes of this study were to (a) evaluate the effects of TC on self-efficacy, quality of life (QOL), and cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and (b) understand the experience and perceived benefits of patients taking chemotherapy involved in a TC program. Design: An explanatory sequential mixed methods study with a dominant qualitative strand was used to explore the differences between an intervention group participating in TC ( n = 3) and a nonexercising, wait-listed comparison group ( n = 3)...

Verónica García Walker
Older adults diagnosed with schizophrenia (OADWS) have unique needs for care and live longer today than their forebears who were diagnosed with schizophrenia. As a result, nurses need to be prepared for the specific care of individuals who live with schizophrenia as they age. Together, Life Course Theory and holistic nursing suggest a good fit in the quest for successful solutions and/or outcomes for the unique problems that OADWS face. Holistic nursing views the patient as a whole person, considering all aspects of the patient's experiences within life's broader environment...
