Bjornsdottir K. 'I try to make a net around each patient': home care nursing as relational practice. Scand J Caring Sci. 2017 May 24.

Disponible en: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28543618

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
As a result of restructuring, home care is increasingly defined in a narrow, task-based way, undermining the holistic nature of practice. Recent practice theories can aid us in articulating the nature of this important, yet often invisible practice.
AIM:
My aim in this article was to enhance our knowledge and understanding of the nature of home care nursing practice.
METHOD:
The approach was ethnographic, involving extensive fieldwork and formal interviews with members of five home care nursing teams and 15 older persons receiving care at home in a metropolitan area of Iceland. The study was approved by the National Bioethics Committee.
FINDINGS:
As a net of services, home care was enacted through relational, but often invisible care practices, relating different actors - patient, family and health-care and social-care workers - in doing the work needed for the older persons to live comfortably at home. The work was collective in that it was shared by different actors and motivated by a common understanding that had developed and was preserved in conversations in the teams.
LIMITATIONS:
Although the findings are limited in that they only reflect home care as practiced in one neighbourhood, they can be seen as providing important insights into what is needed for home care services to work.
CONCLUSION:
Home care practice can be understood as relational, aimed at creating a net of needed assistance. This work is a collective accomplishment of the teams and shaped by ideals and values shared among team members.
