Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Background: Nursing teams work with hospitalised older people in institutions, which prioritise a biomedical model of care.

Int J Older People Nurs 2018 Jun 24;13(2):e12185. Epub 2018 Jan 24.

Department of Health Science, Faculty of Health, Science and Technology, Karlstad University, Karlstad, Sweden.

Background: There is a lack of knowledge about oral care among older people living in short-term care (STC) units and how the quality of oral care provided by nursing staff is perceived by the older people.

Aim: To (i) describe person-related conditions among older people in STC, (ii) describe and compare perceptions of the quality of oral care (including perceptions of care received and the subjective importance of such care), within and between older people who have the ability to perform oral self-care and those who are dependent on help with oral care and (iii) examine the relationship between person-related conditions and the quality of oral care.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 391 older people in STC units in Sweden based on self-reported questionnaire and clinical assessments. Read More

Art, music, story: The evaluation of a person-centred arts in health programme in an acute care older persons' unit.

Int J Older People Nurs 2018 Jun 24;13(2):e12186. Epub 2018 Jan 24.

Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Aims And Objectives: To evaluate the impact of an arts in health programme delivered by a specialised artist within an acute older person's unit.

Background: Acute hospitals must meet the increasingly complex needs of older people who experience multiple comorbidities, often including cognitive impairment, either directly related to their admission or longer term conditions, including dementia. A focus on physical illness, efficiency and tasks within an acute care environment can all divert attention from the psychosocial well-being of patients. Read More

Int J Older People Nurs 2018 Jun 8;13(2):e12182. Epub 2017 Dec 8.

School of Nursing and Midwifery, Centre for Quality and Patient Safety Research, Deakin University, Geelong, Vic., Australia.

Aims And Objectives: To describe and critically analyse the thinking that led to the concept of an association between incontinence, care dependence and elder abuse.

Background: Coercive or abusive continence care practices include chastising a person for their incontinence and overriding their attempts to resist continence care. Neglect in continence care is characterised by withholding or delaying responding to requests for help to maintain continence or to manage incontinence, and restricting a person's access to toileting assistance, incontinence aids or hygiene care.
