RESUMO

The goal of the Aging Matters column is to address important issues related to geropsychiatry and the well-being of older adults. This article offers reflections on columns from the past 15 years and how the aging process has changed in issues related to aging and technology, aging healthfully, end-of-life issues, caregivers for older adults, and growing old in American society. To promote successful aging, we need to hear stories of what it is like to grow old in America. We also need research to better understand the aging process and what is needed for successful aging. In addition, we need policies and resources that help ensure well-trained caregivers who can protect vulnerable older adults and help them age healthfully. Stories of individuals, research, and health care policies need to be connected to create meaningful changes within the health care system.

RESUMO

Little research has focused on aging changes in the normal brain, despite its significance as a public health problem. Recent research on neural mechanisms that underlie cognitive decline in the aging brain suggests that neuro-genesis, the creation of new brain cells, is possible throughout one's life. Research findings offer nurses and other health professionals new opportunities to encourage behavior changes for older adults that may eventually slow or reverse detrimental changes in the aging brain.

RESUMO

As COVID-19 is killing untold numbers of older adults around the world, it is important to reflect on the loss of this generation. Approximately eight in 10 deaths were in people aged ≥65 years. This is a devastating loss to our society-losses that will last long after the pandemic has run its course. Lock-downs and visitor restrictions that were meant to protect older adults created an isolation that often led to declining health. Ageist stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination are internalized by older adults as they face being devalued and viewed as a burden. Reflecting on what has been lost with the deaths of so many from this older generation can spur us to think about how society failed to protect them and to find ways to move beyond the stigma attached to being old. We have much to learn from this generation. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 59(4), 9-12.].

RESUMO

As older adults experience physical and mental changes, they may have difficulty keeping up with tasks that were once routine and may be faced with a growing accumulation of once important possessions that are no longer needed. Problems with clutter have been associated with stress and life dissatisfaction. Helping older adults realize the benefits of decluttering their living environment and providing them with advice on how to do this can help them feel accomplished and in control.

RESUMO

Suicide in older adults is a critical problem that nurses and other health professionals need to address. Evidence-based interventions for prevention of late-life suicide are urgently needed, as well as increased availability of health care professionals with knowledge and skills to recognize suicide risks and intervene to provide effective care for this vulnerable population.

RESUMO

Music is an easily accessible and stimulating medium that can be enjoyed alone or with others, even in the context of severe dementia. The power of music to improve the lives of individuals with dementia, as well as their caregivers, is becoming increasingly recognized as more research is focused on underlying neural relationships and evidence-based music interventions. Nurses and other health professionals can be instrumental in designing and implementing music-based interventions and expanding needed research to promote music as a healing art in dementia care.

RESUMO

Hospitals are increasingly implementing residencies to help ensure that new graduate nurses are prepared to provide safe and effective care. At the Cleveland Clinic, a docudrama focused on ethical concerns in living with dementia was implemented into a 6-month pilot new graduate nurse residency program. Outcomes suggest that the docudrama helped nurse residents gain empathy and understanding through stepping into the lives of families experiencing dementia.

RESUMO

Advance directives such as living wills and health care powers of attorney are important documents that offer patients ways to avoid unwanted care when they are unable to express their wishes. Although health care professionals have increased focus on advance care planning in recent years, approximately two thirds of American adults do not have advance medical directives. In addition, 90% of individuals believe that talking to loved ones about end-of-life wishes is important, but only 27% have done so. It is important for nurses to understand the complex factors that influence how individuals make health care decisions and identify ways to encourage conversations with family, friends, and health care providers to help clarify patients' wishes for endof-life care.

RESUMO

Human flourishing represents a state of mental health in which an individual is actively striving to live well rather than merely feeling good. This concept provides an important context for nurses working with older adults. Flourishing older adults exhibit a sense of personal growth in that they are still evolving and changing. Research suggests that human flourishing is associated with positive outcomes for mental and physical health. Thus, it is important for nurses and other health professionals to help older adults identify and implement strategies that promote flourishing in their later years.

RESUMO

Parkinson's disease is one of the most common chronically disabling disorders of the nervous system. The disorder affects predominately older adults; only 4% of individuals are diagnosed before age 50. Receiving a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease can be overwhelming for someone who is active and feels healthy, but new research shows that patients who take charge of their illness by adopting healthful habits of mind and body can slow the development of the disease and have a better quality of life.

RESUMO

Many older adults struggle with lifelong addictions or become addicted to prescription drugs that they take for coping with physical or psychological pain. There has been little attention, however, focused on this problem in nursing homes, where powerful pain medications are administered routinely. The nursing home setting provides complex challenges for staff and administrators attempting to provide safe and high-quality care for older adults with substance use disorders. Nurses working in long-term care settings, hospitals, and the community need to be sensitive to the possibility of older adults being addicted to alcohol or drugs and identify strategies for addressing this problem. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 55(1), 24-27.].

RESUMO

Pain is personal, subjective, and best treated when the patient's experience is fully understood. Hospitalization contributes to the physical and psychological complications of acute and chronic pain experienced by patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The purpose of this qualitative phenomenological study was to develop an understanding of the unique experience of pain in hospitalized patients with an admitting diagnosis of IBD and related care or surgery. Following institutional review board approval, purposeful sampling was used to recruit 16 patients (11 female, 5 male, mean age 41.8 years) from two 36-bed colorectal units of a large academic medical center in the Midwest. Individual, audio-recorded interviews were conducted by a researcher at each participant's bedside. Recordings and transcripts were systematically reviewed by the research team using Van Manen's approach to qualitative analysis. Subsequently, 5 major themes were identified among the data: feeling discredited and misunderstood, desire to dispel the stigma, frustration with constant pain, need for caregiver knowledge and understanding, and nurse as connector between patient and physician. Hospitalized patients with IBD have common issues with pain care. Nurses caring for them can provide better pain management when they understand these issues/themes. Further research into the themes discovered here is recommended.

RESUMO

One third of older adults in the community have significant mental health problems, but many do not receive needed treatment for problems such as depression, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. Without effective community-based mental health services, older adults may give up and withdraw from treatment. New collaborative and integrative models of mental health services are being implemented that offer innovative roles for nurses. It is important that nurses, as well as other health care professionals, researchers, and policy makers, continue to advocate for a mental health care system that is accessible and effective for older adults in the community.

RESUMO

Older adults are at greater risk for homelessness today than at any time in recent history. Approximately one half of homeless individuals in America are older than 50, which has created serious challenges for how cities, governments, and health care providers care for homeless populations. Systems established in the 1980s to help care for homeless individuals were not designed to address problems of aging. It is critical that nurses and all health professionals have a better understanding of the unique needs and concerns of homeless older adults. Nurses can be an important part of the solution, not only through direct patient care but by advocating for improvements in care for this vulnerable population.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The term spirituality is highly subjective. No common or universally accepted definition for the term exists. Without a clear definition, each nurse must reconcile his or her own beliefs within a framework mutually suitable for both nurse and patient. OBJECTIVES: To examine individual critical care nurses' definition of spirituality, their comfort in providing spiritual care to patients, and their perceived need for education in providing this care. METHODS: Individual interviews with 30 nurses who worked in a critical care unit at a large Midwestern teaching hospital. RESULTS: Nurses generally feel comfortable providing spiritual care to critically ill patients but need further education about multicultural considerations. Nurses identified opportunities to address spiritual needs throughout a patient's stay but noted that these needs are usually not addressed until the end of life. CONCLUSIONS: A working definition for spirituality in health care was developed: That part of person that gives meaning and purpose to the person's life. Belief in a higher power that may inspire hope, seek resolution, and transcend physical and conscious constraints.

RESUMO

New research is providing health care professionals with evidence for the effectiveness of mindfulness meditation as an intervention for older adults. Recent studies have provided evidence that meditation results in observable changes in brain structure related to memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress. Health care professionals should consider mindfulness training as a helpful intervention for older adults with problems such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain, loneliness, and caregiver burden.

RESUMO

The dramatic increase in the number of older adults in our society is creating greater demand for age-appropriate health care services. Because older adults use proportionally more emergency services than any other age group, it is important to address problems and find solutions to emergency care for this vulnerable population. Older adults often need specialized care to meet complex physical and psychological needs in an emergency department (ED). A new focus on establishing geriatric EDs holds promise for reducing barriers to ED access and decreasing suboptimal outcomes. Recently published geriatric ED guidelines provide health care professionals with recommendations to systematically improve emergency care for older adults.

RESUMO

Bedside nurses care for patients with pain every day but the task is often challenging. A previous qualitative study that investigated nurses' experiences as they treated patients with pain suggested that nurses may suffer from moral distress if they are unsuccessful in providing adequate pain relief. As 20 of the original 48 nurses interviewed described frustration and distress when constrained from doing the right thing to provide pain relief for their patients, the purpose of this secondary qualitative analysis was to answer new research questions on nurse moral distress related to managing pain. Findings indicated that difficulties in nurse/physician communication and lack of pain education were contributors to nurses' frustrations and provided barriers to optimal pain management. Many participants indicated a need for interprofessional pain management education. Further investigation is needed to clarify the impact of moral distress on nurses managing hospitalized patients' pain.
