BACKGROUND: The need for older people nursing expertise is increasing, and every effort is required to ensure that personnel taking care of older people are capable of providing high-quality care. AIMS: To explore care home nursing professionals' self-rated competence in older people nursing and to identify predictors of this competence. DESIGN: A cross-sectional survey design. METHOD: Data were collected in August-September 2017 via an electronic questionnaire using the newly developed Nurse Competence in Care Home Scale (NCCHS)...

AIM: To explore the education and developmental needs of care home nursing staff. BACKGROUND: With an increasing ageing population, the need for high-quality care provision is set to rise and will require nursing staff with the desired knowledge, skills and values. However, multiple concerns have been identified when considering the development of nurses working in care homes. Moreover, challenges in the care home sector have also contributed to a situation where some nurses view care home work as being of low status and choose this work to fit around other commitments, rather than viewing it as a viable career pathway...

AIM: To identify the predictors of nurses' work stressors who care for older people (i.e., over age 65 years) in Jordan. BACKGROUND: Nurses sometimes experience stress which could occur as results of caring for older people, for example, with multiple physical and psychological needs. This stress could affect the job satisfaction and reduce the quality of care provided to older people. Thus, identifying sources of stress and predictors that cause stress for nurses is required to enhance quality of care for older people...

AIM: We aimed to implement a systematic nurse-caregiver conversation, examining fidelity, dose and reach of implementation; how implementation strategies worked; and feasibility and mechanisms of the practice change. BACKGROUND: Appropriate hospital care for people living with dementia may draw upon: information from the patient and family caregiver about the patient's perspective, preferences and usual support needs; nursing expertise; and opportunities the nurse has to share information with the care team...

BACKGROUND: Nursing teams work with hospitalised older people in institutions, which prioritise a biomedical model of care. This model does not fit the needs of older people because it emphasises efficacy and a narrow definition of patient safety, but does not prioritise functional needs. Nursing care is provided around the clock within the context of fiscal restraints as well as negative societal and nursing perspectives about ageing and old people. Yet, nursing perceptions of managing safety and potential harms to older patients within these hospital institutions are not well understood...

OBJECTIVES: Grounded in Self-Determination Theory (SDT), the aim of the study was to define an autonomy supportive environment through the perceptions of different healthcare professionals in three geriatric care units within French public and private hospitals. STUDY DESIGN: Four focus groups were conducted with healthcare professionals. Each focus group was videotaped and audio-recorded and transcribed verbatim. METHODS: An inductive approach was used, and data analysis was carried out using NVivo 10 software for Mac-QSR International...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and prioritise recommendations to prevent the use of physical restraints among nursing home residents. METHODS: This study comprised two expert and stakeholder consultation forums using a modified nominal group technique and a follow-up electronic survey to rank the final set of recommendations. RESULTS: There were 15 recommendations formulated to prevent the use of physical restraint among nursing home residents. The three recommendations ranked as most important were that: a single definition be mandated for describing "physical restraint"; use of physical restraint acts as a trigger for mandatory referral to a specialist aged care team; and nursing home staff profile and competencies are appropriate to meet the complex needs of residents with dementia and obviate the need to apply physical restraint...

BACKGROUND: A Community Wellness Team was implemented in North East England in 2014, in line with national policy directives to support frail older people in the community. The service provides a comprehensive and integrated care package, which aims to reduce avoidable admissions, inappropriate service use and enable patients to stay at home. DESIGN: A realist design combining a review of the literature and primary data collection from service providers and patients was used to develop programme theories explaining the links between the Team interventions and expected outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Sleep problems are much more prevalent in nursing home residents than in their community-dwelling counterparts. Cognitive behavioural therapy is likely to improve sleep quality in older adults. However, these interventions have a narrow scope to generalise to nursing home practice, and there are minimal data on the effectiveness of the integration of cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational interviewing in nursing home settings. AIM: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a nurse-led sleep programme on the sleep quality and depressive symptomatology in cognitively intact nursing home residents...

OBJECTIVES: To explore the lived experiences and support needs of the care partners of older people with mental health problems living at home with assistance from home care services. Care partners face significant challenges in their care role and they often feel unsupported. An understanding of their experiences may help improve home care to support their needs. METHOD: An exploratory qualitative approach was used. The study is based on the SRQR and COREQ reporting guidelines...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to describe how EL was eased, as narrated by frail older people. BACKGROUND: Existential loneliness (EL) is an unavoidable part of the human condition. It is a complex phenomenon that has been described as disconnection from life. If EL is acknowledged in the care of older people, the experience of EL can be reduced. DESIGN: In this qualitative study, we used an exploratory and descriptive design...

AIM: Federal regulations require nursing homes in the United States to support residents in directing their own care rather than having their care plans developed for them without their engagement, but knowledge of person-directed approaches to care planning in nursing homes is limited. The purpose of this study was to advance understanding of person-directed care planning (PDCP). METHODS: A multidisciplinary research team conducted a scoping review on individual and family involvement in care planning, including literature from a variety of care contexts...

BACKGROUND: Falls are a common and often a devastating health hazard for older people, causing suffering, morbidity and mortality. Falls are costly for society in terms of both resources and direct medical costs. Although knowledge about falls and fall prevention is well known, falls among older people are still a major problem. AIM AND OBJECTIVES: The aim was to estimate the prevalence of the risk of falls among older people receiving municipal health care. A further aim was to investigate the consistency between fall risk factors and preventive nursing interventions...

AIM: The aim of this integrative review of the literature was to evaluate and summarise current research about how nurses maintain and improve hospitalised older peoples' mobility levels. BACKGROUND: Older persons make up the majority of healthcare recipients, and they are at risk to experience significant decline in their mobility once hospitalised. This can result in longer hospitalisations or nursing home admissions. Currently, it is not well understood how nurses maintain and restore mobility of hospitalised older persons...
