Abstract:
The qualitative report will examine the experience of parish nursing for diverse groups of clients. This project is part of a larger study that explored parish nursing as a community health delivery approach. Increasing health care costs, consumerism, and a focus on outcomes necessitate investigation of alternative modes of care delivery to enhance health and well-being of clients. Parish nursing is one such alternative. Two churches were selected from a network of the parish nursing sites in a southeastern city. The parish nursing program was under the auspices of a regional health care system. Parish nurses identified clients who received services and were willing to participate in the study. Informed consent was obtained and audiotaped open-ended interviews were conducted with members of the two congregations. One congregation was rural/suburban and primarily Caucasian; the other congregation was urban and primarily African-American. Data analysis of the interview transcripts was conducted using Spradley's ethnographic approach. MARTIN was used for data management. Interviews for each congregation were analyzed separately for patterns and domains of meaning and the emic perspective. Then all interviews were reviewed without regard for congregational membership. Taxonomies were derived from the data and constitute findings. Data analysis is in progress and will be completed in September 1997. Implications for parish nursing as a delivery model has implications related to costs, access, and culturally appropriate and holistic care. The role of spirituality in health will also be discussed.
