Family Nursing Therapeutic Conversations in Heart Failure Outpatient Clinics in Denmark: Nurses’ Experiences

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

As part of the Heart Failure Family Trial presently being conducted in
Denmark, this qualitative process evaluation explored the perceptions
of seven practicing cardiac nurses who offered family nursing therapeutic
conversations (FNTC) to families in three heart failure outpatient clinics.
FNTC were guided by the Calgary Family Assessment and Intervention
Models. Data consisted of 34 case reports written by the nurses which
documented the use of FNTC, including family responses to the FNTC. A
focus group interview with the six of the nurses about their experience of
offering FNTC was also conducted. Content analysis was performed using
a combined deductive and inductive process. Nurses reported developing
a distinct, closer, and more constructive relationship with the patients and
their families and reported FNTC increased family bonding and strengthened
family relationships. The nurses considered FNTC to be feasible interventions
in the routine care provided in heart failure outpatient clinics.
