Anticipatory Caring
2008 (English)In: The Grounded Theory Review, ISSN 1556-1542, Vol. 7, no 3Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Today, more and more people die in own homes and nursinghomes, which fundamentally affects community nursing. The aimof this study was to develop a grounded theory of palliative homenursing care and we analyzed interviews and data related to thebehavior of community nurses caring for palliative cancerpatients. Doing Good Care emerged as the pattern of behaviorthrough which nurses deal with their main concern, their desireto do good care. The theory Doing Good Care involves threecaring behaviors; anticipatory caringmomentary caring andstagnated caring. In anticipatory caring, which is the optimalcaring behavior, nurses are doing their best or even better thannecessary, in momentary caring nurses are doing bestmomentarily and in stagnated caring nurses are doing good butfrom the perspective of what is expected of them. When nursesfail in doing good, they experience a feeling of letting the patientdown, which can lead to frustration and feelings of powerlessness.Depending on the circumstances, nurses can hover between thethree different caring behaviors. We suggest that healthcareproviders increase the status of palliative care and facilitate fornurses to give anticipatory care by providing adequate resourcesand recognition.
