Nursing in the aged care arena: perceptions of the experienced gerontic nurse.
Contemp Nurse. 2004 Apr-Jun; 16(3):169-77.CN

Abstract

This qualitative research project explored the complexities associated with providing competent care to older Australians, especially within the context of the current health care environment. The study used the perceptions of experienced Registered Nurses in a residential aged care facility to highlight the ways in which the quality of care in these facilities is both driven and maintained by the Registered Nurse. It is argued that Registered Nurses are the linchpins who act as providers and coordinators of care within residential aged care services. The paper focuses on the potential for the development of the role of the gerontological nurse in residential aged care, and provides future direction for practice. A feature of the study was the way in which the five participants presented an overwhelming respect and value for the older person.
