Spiritual care in practice : case studies in healthcare chaplaincy by George Fitchett( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These diverse case studies make a compelling case for the importance of effective spiritual care in healthcare and provide unprecedented insight into the essential role of the chaplain within the healthcare team. Presented alongside critical reflections and responses from professionals within chaplaincy, psychology, psychiatry and nursing, they provide an honest and detailed look into how healthcare chaplains actually work with the people in their care and reveal the vital role of narrative and imagination in effective transformative practice. From a 16-year-old with a belief that God would enable a miraculous recovery from paralysis, to an African man with a history of psychosis and depression whose cultural belief in witches complicated his treatment, to a dying Jewish man, aggressive and isolated due to his traumatic life experiences, each case includes insight into the patient's needs and chaplain's perspectives, discussion of spiritual assessments and spiritual care interventions, and accounts of significant encounters and dialogues. The nine paediatric, psychiatric and palliative case studies and reflections in this ground-breaking book will enable chaplains to critically reflect on the spiritual care they provide and communicate their work more effectively, help healthcare professionals develop a clearer understanding of the care chaplains deliver, and provide an informed perspective for those who develop policy around spiritual care and need to make the case for chaplaincy services
Prvi polčas : slastne četrtine by Barbara Pešut( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Slovenian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Pešut je v avtobiografski pripovedi povzela "prvih petdeset" let svojega življenja, preživetega polno in strastno kot malokdo, pa vendar že dolgo s temno senco zavedanja neozdravljive bolezni. Nekoč lepo, vročekrvno mlado dekle, plesalka, glasbenica, vajena odra, nastopov, zaljubljena v moža Roberta Pešuta-Magnifica, je kmalu po rojstvu sina zbolela za multiplo sklerozo. V zadnjih letih je bolezen napredovala, jo privezala na invalidski voziček, pahnila v osamo in odvisnost od pomoči drugih. Pisateljica prepleta spomine na leta sreče s sedanjo nezavidljivo situacijo, ki jo premaguje s pisanjem pesmi, erotične proze, besedil za popevke, fizioterapijo, druženjem ob dobri hrani, predvsem pa z zavidanja vrednim optimizmom, ki ga pogosto ne premorejo popolnoma zdravi

Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Curriculum to Prepare Volunteer Navigators to Support Older Persons Living With Serious Illness( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this article is to report the development, implementation, and evaluation of a curriculum designed to prepare volunteer navigators to support community-dwelling older persons with serious chronic illness. The role of the volunteer navigator was to facilitate independence and quality of life through building social connections, improving access to resources, and fostering engagement. A curriculum was constructed from evidence-based competencies, piloted and revised, and then implemented in 7 subsequent workshops. Workshop participants were 51 volunteers and health-care providers recruited through local hospice societies and health regions. Curriculum was evaluated through satisfaction and self-efficacy questionnaires completed at workshop conclusion. Postworkshop evaluation indicated a high degree of satisfaction with the training. One workshop cohort of 7 participants was followed for 1 year to provide longitudinal evaluation data. Participants followed longitudinally reported improved self-efficacy over 12 months and some challenges with role transition. Future improvements will include further structured learning opportunities offered by telephone postworkshop, focusing on advocacy, communication, and conflict management. Overall, volunteers were satisfied with the curriculum and reported good self-perceived efficacy in their new role as navigators
Translational Scholarship and a Palliative Approach( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Based on a retheorized epistemology for knowledge translation (KT) that problematizes the "know-do gap" and conceptualizes the knower, knowledge, and action as inseparable, this paper describes the application of the Knowledge- As -Action Framework. When applied as a heuristic device to support an inquiry process, the framework with the metaphor of a kite facilitates a responsiveness to the complexities that characterize KT. Examples from a KT demonstration project on the integration of a palliative approach at 3 clinical sites illustrate the interrelatedness of 6 dimensions--the local context, processes, people, knowledge, fluctuating realities, and values
The Male Face of Caregiving( )

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

The purpose of this scoping review was to examine the empirical evidence published since 2007 on men as family caregivers of persons with dementia. Searches were conducted on Academic Search Complete, Ageline, CINAHL, Embase, Medline, PsychINFO, Social Work Abstracts, and Web of Science using database-specific controlled (i.e., MeSH terms) vocabulary related to dementia, men, and caregiving. Studies published in English between 2007 and 2012 that provided evidence of the experiences of male family caregivers of persons with dementia were included in the review. A total of 30 articles were selected for inclusion. Studies were grouped into three major themes for review: men's experiences of caregiving, relational factors, and outcomes of caregiving. The reviewed studies build on and support previous findings related to stress, burden, accessing services, and the importance of relational factors to men's caregiving experiences. However, there is a need for a framework that explains these findings in relation to masculinities. Such a framework would provide the necessary unifying context for a more powerful explanatory account. Furthermore, there appears to be the potential for great benefit in fully linking men's caregiver research to men's health issues as a means to articulate strategies to sustain the health and well-being of men caregivers. This seems especially relevant in light of the closing gender gap in life expectancy, which will ultimately see many men providing direct care to their partners
