Abstract [en]
No studies have examined the level of preparedness of CCU nursing personnel for dealing with or reflected on cardiac patients thoughts about death. Accordingly, the aim of this pilot study was to explore and describe CCU nursing personnel’s outlook on their own as well as their patients’ thoughts about death. A descriptive design was employed in spring 2005 at a university hospital in southern Sweden. The 63 (93%) registered and assistant nurses answered a newly established 18-item questionnaire regarding their own as well as their patients’ thoughts about death. Descriptive statistics revealed that 90% believed that the patient often had thoughts about death. Furthermore, 41% were aware of their personal standpoint, 63% were clear about their plan of action, 34% showed openness towards their patients and 26% expressed educational adequacy. These low figures pertaining to both personal and professional awareness indicate a lack of knowledge and competence. Clinical implications are the provision of various forums at CCUs on this subject and the creation of awareness at all levels of nursing education. A research implication is to implement an intervention at CCU of how to take care of suffering or dying cardiac patients in a professional manner.
