The purpose of this study is to explore the daily care experiences of caregivers of children who require medical technology.

The research question was asked, what are the education, skills, and support ...
Three nurse coordinators in the Bouches-du-Rhône share their experience and involvement in the in-home nursing care service and the multidisciplinary in-home care and assistance service.
Although paid caregivers (e.g., home health aides and home care workers) provide essential care for homebound older adults with serious illness in their homes, little is known about how and to whom paid caregivers communicate about the health needs they encounter. This study explored how paid caregivers (i) communicate when older adults experience symptoms or clinical changes and (ii) interact with the health care team.
A significant proportion of children placed in out of-home care experience placement disruptions in the United States. Placement instability has deleterious effects on children's well-being.
To examine prevalence, types, challenges, and the impact of medical/nursing tasks (MNT) on caregivers of older adults with dementia.
Older people in Thailand receive general medical and social care at the end of life, and many rarely access palliative services. In light of this, improving the quality of care for the ageing population relies on addressing the needs of family caregivers, who provide the majority of care in a home setting. Understanding caregivers' perspectives when caring for a friend or relative will help to improve the quality of care that they provide.
To evaluate the effectiveness of a two-session multicomponent family strengths- oriented therapeutic conversation intervention among family caregivers of an individual with advanced/final stage cancer during ongoing palliative home-care.
With the medical and surgical advances of recent decades, a growing proportion of children rely on home-based care for daily health monitoring and care tasks. However, a dearth of available home health care providers with pediatric training to serve children and youth with medical complexity markedly limits the current capacity of home health care to meet the needs of patients and their families. In this article we analyze the workforce gaps, payment models, and policy challenges unique to home health care ...
To explore how community nurses (CNs) experience the collaboration with general practitioners (GPs) and specialist palliative home care team (PHCT) nurses in palliative home care and the perceived factors influencing this collaboration.
People with young onset dementia (YOD) experience many unique challenges. Similarly, family caregivers experience changing personal, familial, and societal roles. However, YOD is under recognized and under resourced with a lack of dedicated models of care. The current study explored family members' experience of caregiving for persons with YOD to identify barriers and opportunities to accessing support. Qualitative interviews were conducted with six family caregivers, using interpretative phenomenological a...

We analyzed baseline data from the School-Based Telemedicine Enhanced Asthma Management (SB-TEAM) study, including medication use, symptoms, and demographics. Research assistants documented all asthma medications available during home visits. We reviewed pharmacy records for a subset of ch...
Family caregivers can benefit from education-based wellness programs, but many face barriers to attending such programs. The purpose of this research was to explore telehealth as a delivery format for an education-based caregiver wellness program. This qualitative research examined the caregiver experience of a specific program called Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC). The traditionally in-person program was delivered via telehealth in four states. Twelve caregivers participated in focus groups the week a...
End-of-life care is an important nursing competency and must be incorporated into the baccalaureate nursing curriculum. The purpose of this research was to examine the outcomes of an actual hospice compared with a simulated hospice clinical experience. This pretest and posttest nonequivalent 2-group design consisted of a sample of 65 undergraduate nursing students enrolled in a community health course. All students enrolled in the community health course have 1 day for hospice experience and a 2-hour orient...
The purpose of this study was to investigate nurses' need for care robots in children's hospitals and to help develop care robots that can be used by combining robot-care, game-care, and edu-care. This study employed a mixed-methods design; 198 nurses were recruited for quantitative research and 12 for qualitative research. The findings were as follows. Robot-care: Participants had an overwhelming preference for robots made of plastic or steel that could easily be washed and sterilized. Game-care: Among nur...
Paid caregivers (for example, home health aides and personal care attendants) are formally tasked with helping older adults with functional impairment meet their basic needs at home. This study used thirty semistructured interviews with dyads of patients or their proxies and their paid caregivers in New York City to understand the range of health-related tasks that paid caregivers perform in the home and determine whether these tasks are taught in the New York State Department of Health's curriculum. We fou...
The process of moving patients from a hospital to a home or another care setting, also called transitional care, can lead to unwanted complications and negative outcomes. The term "transitional care" involves a wide range of conditions and services to ensure the continuity of care and prevention of unwanted consequences in vulnerable individuals, who are affected by any changes in care settings or caregivers.
The Veteran-Directed Care (VDC) program facilitates independent community living among adults with multiple chronic conditions and functional limitations. Family caregivers value the choice and flexibility afforded by VDC, but rigorous evidence to support its impact on health care costs and use is needed. We identified veterans enrolled in VDC in fiscal year 2017 and investigated differences in hospital admissions and costs after initial receipt of VDC services. We compared VDC service recipients to a match...
This study aimed to illuminate nurses' experience of continence care for older people receiving home care, either in their own home or in an assisted living facility.
Family caregivers often serve as unpaid members of the home and community-based care workforce for people with serious illness; as key partners in the home-clinic continuum, they should be included in health care teams. The Campaign for Inclusive Care is an initiative within the Veterans Affairs health care system to improve provider practices for including caregivers of military members in treatment planning and decisions. We defined using a literature review, provider interviews, and a caregiver survey. ...

To develop and psychometrically test the Distress Thermometer for Caregivers (DT-C) and document the distress level in primary caregivers of children and adolescents diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Fever is an important vital sign and often the first one to be assessed in a sick child. In acutely ill children, caregivers are expected to monitor a child's body temperature at home after an initial medical consult. Fever literacy of many caregivers is known to be poor, leading to fever phobia. In children with a serious illness, the responsibility of periodically monitoring temperature can add substantially to the already stressful experience of caring for a sick child.
