Discussion on Module 3, "Organisation of the home care"
by Aldona Droseikiene - Friday, 10 May 2013, 4:23 PM
 

Dear colleagues,

I want to invite you to a discussion about a module  theme.How you are organising your job;the tasks which you raise by yourself;an experience which can be useful to share.

The aim of this module is to explore the relationship between the  concepts of nurses using narrative medicine story-telling and hope from a relational ethics approach in the context of healthcare practise.Healthcare staff protects themselves and others to preserve hope in the care of seriously sick patients and in end-of-life care.This is done by balancing truth-telling guided by different conditions such as the cultural norms of patients,family and staff.Our main conclusion is that the balancing of narrative medicine with parental pedagogy needs to be decided in a mutual understanding in the caring relationship,where hope must always be inspired.Instead of focusing on national health care system  ,as the only guided principle,we would like to ask you to discuss how the relational ethics can serve in your practise,as a meaningful perspective in your daily life.

Hello!

      I think that it`s important for patients not to loose hope,we are not allowed to sweep away their hope.

      I also have to say that not telling the truth is not an option.The patient has the right to know all about his condition,but it depends to us how we manage the situation.Tell the truth,but tell it in your own way,so the person in front of you sees the good part,the part in wich we are prepared to do everything for him|her.

     I`m sure that this module will help us to be more prepared and more attentive in approaching this matter.

    Finally,for me ,working in rehabilytation section I think I`m offering hope for my patients, as much as I can,all day long. Not only hope but also real improvements for their health.

In our country there is a great need for home care. The applications are many, but the offer of home care services is limited. Home care services are useful even for people receiving care from family because lack of knowledge about how to care for a person suffering from a disease, can cause him pain or suffering higher than normal. Education regarding how to be "treated" physically, mentally or emotionally can help more patients, can make the transition beyond be easier. I think that such education (training) is necessary for families who care for a sick and that would be useful in any situation.

Home care is an important part of the health system. One aspect that I can understand and to which I did not think before in the past is that the patient needs very much attention and understanding and not just trowel care (injections, massage, physiotherapy). It matters very much to be near the patient and how you approach him.
I believe that the treatment plan must include these approaches and especially time spent in discussions on topics important to the patient.

I believe that providing home care services for patients and not only is a lot of cooperation from the medical staff and family. It is important to realize that the family status of the patient, the chances that they are given to the patient and how important it is to be near the person who is in sufference. To improve the patient's condition is important for the family to work with health professionals to be the first to accept the patient's condition, only in this way we can help the sick person in an efficient way.

After going through this module and attending the face to face workshop, I think I managed to understand much better some feelings, but also how to address more effectively the emotional structure of a patient (friend, child, parent, colleague) in difficulty.
I learned in this course to put myself in the position of another person, to understand their pain and that it is very important for the patient to see in me an ally, to see that I care, that I am close to him.

in this way both felt involved and important to care and healing of my dad. I hope that it is not an isolated case but that this method can be spread as soon as possible. Thank you!

Within this module I could learn how to approach the patient, how to understand the fears a patient lives.

We should always put the patient in the first plan to best understand him/her and also have to understand that home care means not only patient hygiene, mobilization and medical treatment but the most important is to communicate with patient, to let him explain his fears as this can make half of the disease to be “cured”.

My opinion is that it's best to be honest with him explaining the "future" that is, through what he will go and it will be much easier to accept. If we're going to lie then he will lose confidence in us and will no longer accept the medical treatment, and then there will be barriers to overcome.

I think this whole course is very good and interesting.

I agree with this statement. Often in my work see patients who are in very serious condition, always performed better recovery process if they have hope, and above all the will to fight! I believe that we need to help them do that, at least half the battle in treating a patient attitude - and it's free, and it is not difficult to achieve.

This module has just turned me inside out.
I am a home carer and I met a lot of problems with some patients.
I need a lot of patience and courage and I think that caring for a patient with respect, you respect yourself as a human being. 
By providing home care to a patient you just become part of his/her life.
You need to know to approach the patient, to know what interests he has.

I think, too, that is important to tell the truth, respecting the individuality of every each person, respecting the personal history and involving the family. Family's support is important regarding the fact that having relatives closer, will help the patient to hope for better understanding of him/her. Treat him/her in this manner means to show some empaty and make the dyagnosis and treatament more acceptable and with better results.

I'm not sure we always have to talk to the patient or his family the truth. On the one hand, it is undeniable right of every individual to know their health status. But like others here wrote, we must also respect the rights of the house which we enter. It's a very difficult question and I do not know a definite answer.

Probably everybody agrees that the truth has to be told to the patient about his of her health condition. It is a human right, after all. However, we have also to deal with cultural norms. In our care centre we often meet familymembers who consider it unacceptable to tell the truth because, so they motivate: "then my father/mother loses hope and will pass away soon". I wonder to what kind of hope they refer, possible hope for a miraculous and full recovery. Such a unrealistic hope creates nothing but frustration in my opinion. The patient expects to get better, but feels worse every day.

Hope is an essential aspect of the therapeutic relationship between patients and their carers. Realistic hopes provide considerable support, but unrealistic hopes can be destructive by impairing the ability to make appropiate decisions about future plans, treatment, and issues of personal importance.

The conflict between truth-telling and preserving hope is noted by patients and families who feel that "the doctor is not really telling them everything" a feeling that can destroy the relationship between the doctor and the patient.

I think hope means different things to different people and cand differ as one person moves through stages of illnes. When he/she is close to death hope is mote short term oriented, having spiritual goals. We should ask the patient what are their goals and if they are impossible to achieve we should ask ourselves "How cand we reframe the goal to preserve hope?"

After his module I understood that the empathy towards the patient is good and necessary, the same as sharing his problems but I also understood that it is neither good nor necessary that I take away with me the problems of the patients and that I let myself affected by these problems. I have learnt where and how I have to detach myself so that I can offer a real support to the patient.

This module has been very interesting and well structured. I think it is necessary that the patient is informed about his health condition in order to help him undertake a process of acceptance of his health condition. Both the doctor and the family should cooperate in order to help the patient accept his condition and move forward.

When we take in charge a person at home, we do it carefully and delicately because we are guests.

To enter into a house means to get into a different culture which requests our respect.

The family is the main element in the care project. The narrative description of the person and the family becomes the most important tool to get to know each other and to obtain a better efficiently from the care activities.

Every day I take care of a lot of people. Sincerely I can’t give them more than 10 minutes. I have introduced in my work the narrative description to better get to know my patient trying to go beyond what I see and hear in 10 minutes.

The tool which has helped me in this work is the narrative description form. Once it is given to the patient I ask him/her to fill it in and to bring it back the next time. The importance of the contents and of the experiences allows me to identify the meanings the person gives to his/her illness, to the care and to his/her hopes in life.

The tools the schools own are those which belong to the integration medicine/pedagogy.

The integration between medicine and pedagogy is realized inside the process of care and growth which is specific of the development age.

Which are the tools we can use? We already have two validated tools which have been approved by a lot of experts: with our eyes and educational and therapeutic path. They are tools of the parents pedagogy and they implement all the paradigms which are the bases of the integration medicine – pedagogy.

According to the comparative and phenomenological method, the person with  different skills becomes pathological because he/she is compared to the normality. The historical cultural method instead allows a different recognition: the person is the result of his/her own story which establishes what the person does and what would like to do.

We must consider that each person is different from the other even though they suffer the same pathology, the same needs, the same activities to follow.

It is very important in the care path of the patient to build together with the healthcare professional and families an individual and shared care planning to be applied and to follow without taking anything for granted and without presumption not to make mistakes.

The taking in charge of the person happens at home with all the healthcare professional workers (general practice, pediatrics, doctor supervising care at home, nurse coordinator, nurse of case management and the person and his/her family.

According to the person needs, his/her expectations and familiar environment, an healthcare plan is proposed that can be changed during the taking care of the patient and it will be on the clinical record.

In the care at home, the educational and therapeutic pact underlines the characteristics of how the healthcare professional workers, parents, caregivers and families meet together.

The parents and relatives as caregivers are not responsible for the application of healthcare procedures but they are only collaborators in the individual care.

The knowledge of the family culture allows the health professional workers to be well accepted by the relatives and parents and to obtain the efficiency of the care.

The idea of ​​narrative medicine is new to me, but slowly I realize that it has been using for a long time, but I did not know that so it is called. I am glad that I can learn more about it and to exchange experiences with other nurses.

I believe that the issue of home care for the elderly will become increasingly grew. We have more and more elderly people in need of care and, unfortunately, does not increase the number of carers. Therefore, it is especially important now working adequately trained caregivers.
Particularly interesting seems to be the use of the ICF in this area, I have never thought to implement this classification for home care.

 The main problem is that Self-governments are experiencing problems in
precise planning, because of a lack of methods
for evaluating the true number of persons need

they will need. As a result, self-governments are
hampered by inadequate planning and finances,
and the inability to finance service provision in a timely manner.

In the care at home, the educational and therapeutic pact underlines the characteristics of how the healthcare professional workers, parents, caregivers and families meet together.

I share the importance of a complementary cooperation between health professionals and parents during all the care. Expecially in home help, of course, but I suggest that it's a critical goal needing a real change in the actual (in Italy) health professionals training: for example, from care to take care, from a culture of doing to a culture of thinking... and then doing).

Moreover - sorry - I fear that present healthcare politics emphasise highly the caregivers' engagement also because of the critical reduction of public resources, of the welfare.

This module explain that home care means not only patient medical treatment but emphasizes the importance to communicate with patient and his/her caregivers. To use an honest communication and don't lie to the patient on the progress of his illness.And I really think an honest communication promotes adherence to medical treatments and better results.

In order for the pacient to be a part of the medical act, he must know the truth about his health condition. This does not meen that we have to be cruel or indifferent in the process of sharing the information, but in a nice, emphatic way the pacient must be announced.
