    Existential and Spiritual Needs in Mental Health Care:: An Ethical and Holistic Perspective2009In: Journal of Holistic Nursing, ISSN 0898-0101, E-ISSN 1552-5724, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 34-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study illuminates how existential needs and spiritual needs are connected with health care ethics and individuals’ mental health and well-being. The term existential needs is defined as the necessity of experiencing life as meaningful, whereas the term spiritual needs is defined as the need of deliverance from despair, guilt and/or sin, and of pastoral care. It discusses whether or not patients’ needs are holistically addressed in Western health care systems that neglect patients’ existential and spiritual needs, because of their biomedical view of Man which recognizes only patients’ physical needs. It excludes a holistic health care which considers all needs, expressed by patients in treatment of mental illness. Addressing all needs is important for patients’ improvement and recovery. For some patients, this is the only way to regain their mental health and well-being.

    Community nurses’ experiences regarding the meaning and promotion of healthy aging in northeastern Thailand2018In: Journal of Holistic Nursing, ISSN 0898-0101, E-ISSN 1552-5724, Vol. 36, no 1, p. 54-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Describe community nurses’ experiences regarding the meaning and promotion of healthy aging in northeastern Thailand.

    Method: Data were collected through five focus group interviews with 36 community nurses in northeastern Thailand. Latent content analysis was conducted to analyze the data.

    Findings: Healthy aging was characterized by the interconnection of older persons, older persons’ family members and the community. Healthy aging was associated with two themes: “being strong” and “being a supporter and feeling supported”. The nurses’ experiences in promoting healthy aging were described using the themes “providing health assessment”, “sharing knowledge” and “having limited resources”.

    Conclusions: The findings of this study provide a deeper understanding of the meaning of healthy aging from a holistic viewpoint. Community nurses must pay attention to older persons and their surroundings when planning how to promote healthy aging. Person-centredness should be applied in practice to promote healthy aging. The current findings contribute useful information that should help policy makers develop healthy aging strategies in Thailand.
