Purpose: Purposes of this study were to determine the core nursing
interventions recorded in nursing note and the perceptions of nurses about
the care of the terminally ill cancer patients; and to compare
interventions noted in the nursing record with what nurses perceived their
interventions were. Subjects: Forty-four nursing records of patients who
were in the final 4 weeks of their lives during January to December 2002
at C University Hospital in Korea, and 83 nurses who were working at the
oncology unit more than a year. Methods: In pretest, agreement between
interventions in nursing record and interventions was accomplished by four
experts (two head nurses and two professors). Data were collected using 5
point Likert scale by NIC from July to December 2003. The frequency of
recorded nursing intervention was identified in nursing records. The
identified frequency was changed into 5 point Likert scale to compare with
perceived nursing interventions. Data were analyzed using descriptive
statistics. Results: The most frequent nursing intervention was nausea
management in the nursing record followed by pain management, surveillance
and respiratory management. The most frequent nursing interventions were
oral medication administration: followed by IV medication administration:
intravenous therapy and pain management in perceived practice. The
frequency of nursing interventions in nursing record was lower than that
of interventions perceived by nurses. Conclusion: Nurses need to document
more fully what they do. Development of systematic nursing record system
along with continuous education and feedback on nursing documentation are
recommended.
