Attachment and coping of dementia care staff: The role of staff attachment style, geriatric nursing self-efficacy, and approaches to dementia in burnout Abstract Past research suggests that dementia care staff are vulnerable to the development of burnout, which has implications for staff well-being and hence the quality of care for people with dementia. Studying personal vulnerability factors in burnout is important as it can guide staff training and support. Attachment theory suggests that adult attachment styles affect caregiving relationships and individuals’ responses to stress, providing a framework for understanding caregivers’ styles of coping. This cross-sectional survey study examined relationships between staff attachment styles, geriatric nursing self-efficacy, and approaches to dementia in burnout. Seventy-seven members of dementia care staff working on inpatient wards for older people completed self-report questionnaires.
Recently, however, the focus has shifted to patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures, whereby questionnaires are used by patients to self-report. Pain-related disability questionnaires in LBP focus on the decrease in capacity of performance and altered performance of activities of daily living, but also cover other limitations of health under the ICF definition (Grotle et al 2005). In this literature review, the author aims to investigate the current literature pertaining to the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RDQ), Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale (QBPDS) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) with regards to assessing LBP and disability. The RDQ was originally designed to be used for primary care research to assess physical disability due to LBP in 1983 by Roland and Morris (Roland and Fairbank 2000). The RDQ has been widely used in clinical practice in a variety of settings to monitor treatment progress in patients with acute, subacute, and chronic LBP as well as sciatica (Smeets et al

The Theory of Self-Transcendence: History of the Theory The theory of self-transcendence is a middle-range nursing theory which was developed by Pamela Reed (Cramer, 2013; Smith & Liehr, 2008). Self-transcendence theory establishes a framework for healthcare providers through the promotion of well-being during life-altering events (Reed, 2008). In addition, this theory provides a holistic framework for nursing care focused on the relationship between persons and their environment (Reed, 2008). This can be achieved by creating self-transcendence activities that promote improved well-being through a broadening of personal boundaries (Reed, 2003). As a result, this facilitates the general public 's acceptance of grieving and loss while enhancing

The theoretical framework gives a detailed reason to why the highlighted research ques-tion exists. Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing is the theoretical framework relat-ing to this research because the theory is further divided into three sub-theories in which requisite are line with the following: Individual stages of development and goals, Health conditions, Developmental states, Energy consumption and expenditure, Atmospheric conditions and also the theory gives room to investigate possible causes of malnutrition alongside nurse’s intervention by assessing the need for care, approaches and required interventions. According Orem in 2001, nursing can be viewed as part of the health sector that provides authorized care to individuals.
Reed’s process model for clinical specialty education and psychiatric mental health nursing practice articulates relationships among the metaparadigm constructs of health, persons and their environments, and nursing activity (Smith & Liehr, 2014). Self-transcendence theory delineates specific concepts from Reed’s process model: constructs of health (i.e., well-being), a person (i.e., self-transcendence), and environment (i.e., vulnerability), and it proposes relationships among these concepts to direct nursing activities (1986, 1987). Reed (1991) and Coward and Reed (1996) have suggested nursing activities that facilitate the expansion of self-conceptual boundaries journaling, art activities, meditation, life review, and religious expression,
