Family Systems Nursing in Hong Kong: A Pilot Project
Abstract:
Family Systems Nursing in Hong Kong: A Pilot Project
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Simpson, Peggy (Margaret Anne), RN, MN
P.I. Institution Name:The University of Hong Kong
Title:Assistant professor
Chinese culture emphasizes the importance of the family as the basic unit for life. Within the Chinese cultural environment, when family relations are sound and stable, it is easier for family members to deal with a crisis cooperatively. When relations are not as strong pre-existing problems can have a detrimental impact on the illness management and outcome. It is important for nurses working in the context of Chinese culture to know how to conduct comprehensive family assessments and implement appropriate intervention strategies for families experiencing health problems. However, until recently, nurses in Hong Kong have had little opportunity to learn comprehensive family system assessment and intervention skills. The family systems nursing theory was used to develop a pilot project to change clinical nursing practice in an acute psychiatric care setting in Hong Kong. A series of workshops and supervised practice were used to implement a Family Systems Nursing Model, CFAM/CFIM (Calgary Family Assessment and Intervention Model). Family, staff and system outcomes will be presented derived from both quantitative and qualitative project evaluation data.
