Older women's experience of osteoporotic fractures in the spine [No]

Sykepleien Forskning 2015;10(3):238-246.

Sykepleien Forskning

Background: Osteoporosis-related vertebral fracture affects many older women and is often an underdiagnosed condition. Objective: To describe older women´s experience of living with fracture based on synthesis of findings from qualitative studies. Methods: The study is based on the principles in the PRISMA guidelines, the standard for systematic reviews. Systematic article searches by qualitative studies were performed in Cinahl, Medline, PsychINFO and SweMed+. Five studies met the criteria for inclusion. A thematic synthesis of findings of the included articles was conducted. Results: The synthesis identified the following main themes; «bodily changes», «constant and unpredictable pain», «impact on everyday life», and «follow-up and support». Pain was described as constant and predominant in life. Reduction in height and changed posture were by the women experienced as negative, as they viewed themselves as «old and bent». Conclusion: Systematic pain assessment in community health can be one measure for identification of women with osteoporosis related vertebral fracture who experience pain. Bodily changes in women with osteoporosis-related vertebral fracture should get more attention in clinic practice. Exercise may make a positive impact on everyday life and strengthen the women's self-esteem. doi:10.4220/Sykepleienf.2015.54968

Curvilinear relationship between age and post-stroke fatigue among patients in the acute phase following first-ever stroke

Int J Phys Med Rehabil 2013, 1:5

International Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Introduction: Fatigue is a common complaint after stroke and may be assumed to be related to older age. Contradictory findings on the relationship between age and post-stroke fatigue have been reported in the rehabilitation phase, but no studies have described their relationship in the acute phase. The aim of this study was to explore the relationships among fatigue, age, and other socio-demographic and clinical factors during the acute phase following stroke. Methods: The sample included 115 patients (ages 29 to 91 years) with first-ever stroke admitted to two hospitals in Norway in 2007 and 2008. Data were collected from medical records and face-to-face interviews within 2 weeks of hospital admission. Measures included the Fatigue Severity Scale, SF-36A Physical Functioning Scale, Beck Depression Inventory-II, Barthel Index and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. Pre-stroke fatigue was defined as fatigue lasting longer than three months before the stroke. Analyses included age group comparisons and hierarchical linear regression. Results: The relationship between age and fatigue was weak and U-shaped rather than linear, with the youngest (<60 years) and oldest (>75 years) groups reporting higher levels of post-stroke fatigue. The effect of age on post-stroke fatigue remained significant after controlling for gender, work status, pre-stroke fatigue, physical functioning, sleep disturbance, and comorbidity, but was attenuated after controlling for depressive symptoms. Conclusion: Although post-stroke fatigue in the acute phase was more severe among the youngest and oldest groups, age only explained a small proportion of post-stroke fatigue variability. Clinical factors, such as pre-existing fatigue, physical functioning, and particularly mood are likely more important explanations for post-stroke fatigue than age. Since fatigue may impact the patient’s ability to participate in rehabilitation, clinicians should pay attention to fatigue and its co-existing factors during the acute phase. Evidence-based interventions for managing post-stroke fatigue and improving rehabilitation outcomes are warranted.

A concept analysis of energy - Its meaning in the lives of three individuals with chronic illness

Authors:
Anners Lerdal

Scand J Caring Sci 1998; 12: 3-10

Scandinavian Journal of Caring Science

Energy is an essential concept in nursing which seems to be a key concept in the daily life of three individuals with chronic illness. Much has been done within the natural sciences to investigate and explain the concept, but studies on the meaning of energy and how it is experienced are difficult to find. A review of the existing literature reflects that energy has been an important term for nursing theorists, both in empirical studies and in nursing theories. In this study the principles of the hybrid model developed by Schwartz-Barcot & Kim of concept development were used to examine: (a) how the concept has been outlined in the literature within different disciplines, (b) how energy is experienced in the daily lives of three individuals with chronic illness, and finally, (c) the existing literature compared and contrasted with the empirical findings. The experience of having energy was very important for all three individuals. Energy was a familiar term which each individual linked most directly with his or her feeling states and the ability to perform daily activities. It demanded attention every day. Energy was defined as the individual's potential to perform physical and mental activity. The study indicates that this concept has potential for theory development and for clinical practice.
