Cancer stories : on life and suffering by David Michael Gregory( )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Cancer Stories five people share their journeys, their stories, and the suffering they faced before their deaths. These narratives chronicle the despair, hope, and love they experienced while living and dying with cancer, giving the power of the human spirit full voice. Lessons learned are presented as "gifts" at the conclusion of each of the five narratives." "This book is for people with the disease and their caregivers. Nurses and physicians, students in any health-related discipline, as well as persons engaged in qualitative research will find this an invaluable resource. The importance of incorporating qualitative, research-based approaches in caring for the dying emerges from the narratives. Cancer Stories points toward a more holistic research/treatment agenda, one that bridges the medical and social sciences."--BOOK JACKET

Narratives of suffering in the cancer experience by David Michael Gregory( )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The findings of this study suggest that nurses may not be capable of alleviating patient suffering. Patients' lives intersect at the suffering experience; their suffering is shaped by the past, present, and future. Nurses may influence these intersections of suffering to some extent, however, it is the individual who ultimately determines the living and outcome (if any) of their suffering. In the lives of the informants, it was the love of spouses and children, faith and trust in God, and satisfaction with life's accomplishments which permitted the endurance of suffering. Competent, comfort-care provided by compassionate nurses is needed by patients who suffer with cancer
Nurses and human resources in Indian communities : nurse perceptions of factors affecting collaboration with elders and contact with traditional healers on Indian reserves and in health centres in Manitoba by David Michael Gregory( Book )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous nursing research has not examined the extent of collaboration between nurses and Indian Elders, and contact with traditional healers in Manitoba. An exploratory-descriptive two phase research design was implemented to identify factors affecting collaborative efforts between nursing staff and Indian Elders, and to explore nurse-healer interaction. Phase I consisted of semi-structured, face to face interviews with field nurses (N=10) and Elders (N=13) on three Indian reserves in northern Manitoba. Phase II consisted of a close-ended, structured, census survey mail questionnaire administered to nurses (N=64) working autonomously with Indian clients. Findings based on Phase I interviews and an 81.2% return rate of Phase II questionnaires indicated that nurses who were appreciative of the traditional health care system were collaborating with Elders and healers on reserves and health centres in Manitoba. The need for ongoing and indepth communication between nurses and Elders/healers was established. A more detailed cultural orientation was indicated as needed by the majority of nurses. Factors influencing the collaborative process were identified as: past transcultural experiences, knowledge of who/what Elders are, influence of the nurse's own culture and the attitude of the Elders and community towards the nurse. Client conditions identified as appropriate for Elder referral included: lack of self worth, family discipline problems, social interaction problems, child neglect, and parent-child conflict

Narratives of suffering in the cancer experience by David Michael Gregory( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Suffering is a fundamental experience of the human condition. Whereas the arts and humanities have struggled to make sense of this condition, no concerted effort has taken place in nursing. Suffering is painfully absent within the cancer nursing research literature, a place where suffering should be conspicuous. The purpose of this study was to explore suffering inherent in the cancer experience. The concurrent use of Travelbee's Human-To-Human Relationship Model and narrative theory provided the conceptual underpinning for this prospective ethnography. Narratives of suffering were explored among seven patients diagnosed with cancer (breast, n = 4; brain; malignant melanoma; and ovarian cancer). Five women and two men were interviewed weekly (N = 89 interviews) for a period of up to five months. Participant observation supplemented the interview data. Seven richly textured narratives revealed the suffering endured in the living-of-cancer. The narratives also detailed the informant as person, the cancer trajectory, and explanatory models of cancer causation. A second level analysis of the narratives provided an intra-group comparison of suffering. "Cascade of losses" was the overarching theme. The undermining of personhood, and a loss of faith and trust in the medical system characterized this cascade of losses. Losses were further encountered: the dismissal of symptoms presented to physicians, the failure of treatment as cure, the death of other cancer patients, and the false reassurance that "cancer can be beaten". The remaining themes were "cancer as torture" and "the work of suffering--the beauty of cancer". The findings of this study suggest that nurses may not be capable of alleviating patient suffering. Patients' lives intersect at the suffering experience; their suffering is shaped by the past, present, and future. Nurses may influence these intersections of suffering to some extent, however, it is the individual who ultimately determines the living and outco

Spirit at work and hope among the ruins: registered nurses' covenant of care( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Aim To explore registered nurses' (RNs) perspectives about the health care system, management/leadership, patients and spirit at work (SAW). Background Researchers investigating RNs experiences of reduced job satisfaction and diminishing organisational commitment are looking carefully at spirit at work as a means to foster healthier workplaces. Methods A descriptive, cross-sectional mixed methods design was used to measure and explore the relationships between spirit at work, job satisfaction and organisational commitment. A 2012 postal survey sent by the provincial licensing body to a random sample of 217 surgical and 158 home care registered nurses' in western Canada returned 179 surveys. Seventy-five respondents answered the open-ended survey question. Their responses warrant further content analysis and serve as the foundation of this article. Results Participants noted that organisational structures and policies, combined with unsupportive leadership, were associated with a reduced sense of community, lack of trust and diminished accountability. Conclusion Spirit at work was described as sustaining registered nurses' and providing them with hope as they fulfilled their covenant of care with patients. Implications for nursing management Leadership attention to the advancement of SAW may support the covenant of care between the registered nurses and patient while fostering healthier workplaces
