[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Face of chronic illness the individual lives a transition, which should result in changes in their way of life, being expected to incorporate a set of behaviors (self-care) and attitudes that enable clinical and behavioral management, reorganization of roles and emotional management.
Objectives: Identify family characteristics that influence the transition process health/chronic disease; clarify the role of families in self-management.
A longitudinal multi-cases study was designed to meet objectives. The study included 22 people with chronic disease, with more than five re-admissions in hospital during a year and a half, and who agreed to participate.
Medical and nursing reports were consulted, was conducted participant observation and interviews with all participants Seventeen cases with ineffective self-management were followed during a half and a year, and in this time had at least three contacts with the researcher. Data analysis was performed by the method of Grounded Theory.
The transition causes changes in family process, requiring reorganization of roles and, sometimes, changes of economic status. When the family process is compromised there is an over-utilization of health services. The main role of the family is referred to as backing and support, which is the main coping strategy used by participants in transition process.
The lack of family support is associated with situations of social isolation and neglect in self-management regimen. The family arises predominantly as a facilitating factor essential for self-management, however, when their attitude towards care is replacement may restrict autonomy of ill person.
Identification of people with increased vulnerability, due to lack of family support, allows for anticipatory care planning taking into account the risk of ineffectiveness of the regimen. The nursing provision of care should focus on family transition, supporting in process of readjustment of roles and family organization, promoting autonomy and self-care of sick family element.
