The meaning of slow nursing in dementia care.
Dementia (London). 2017 Oct; 16(7):930-947.D

Abstract

Research literature in the dementia field lacks examples of 'best-practices' demonstrating concretely how it is possible to support the sense of coherence in people with dementia. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the nurses' views concerning a caring approach that may support the sense of coherence in people with dementia. The data were collected through participant observation and focus group interviews during a four-month period in 2011. Sixteen registered nurses recruited from two Norwegian nursing homes participated in this study. The data were interpreted using a phenomenological-hermeneutical method. Three themes were identified: 'being in the moment', 'doing one thing at a time', and 'creating joy and contentment'. An overall interpretation of these themes is described by the metaphor 'slow nursing', a caring approach that may lead to supporting the sense of coherence in people with dementia.
