Integrity promoting care of demented patients : patterns of interaction during morning care.
Video-recorded morning care sessions (n=49) of demented nursing home patients (n=5), were analyzed before, as well as after, training of the staff in integrity promoting care.
A phenomenological-hermeneutic analysis was performed based on the Erikson theory of « eight stages of man » and musical notations were used for the analysis of courses of events.
The analysis revealed five main patterns of interaction ; positive, negative, intermediate, negative/intermediate turned into positive by the patient, and negative/intermediate turned into positive by the caregiver.
Before the training, negative and intermediate patterns dominated (58%), while positive patterns dominated (84%) after the training.
The positive patterns of interaction were characterized by the caregiver communicating with the patient as a competent partner, showing humanity, respect and support.
The activity was carried out in intimacy.
This led to the patient displaying more and more ability.
