Title: Nursing content in the process of information-sharing in ICU: A Research Protocol


Biography: Anabela Pereira Mendes


Critical care situations as a significant impact on the family life, so the interaction that family-members and nurses built reveals itself a dynamic and important process for both. Family members are nursing client in the intensive care unit (ICU) due to the emotional vulnerability that they experience. In the clinical interaction, family looks for information to understand the situation while nurses want to know better this family and the process health-disease transition that they are living (1,2). The aim of this research is to identify and analyse the Information Needs and the Information content Shared by nurses and family. The specific objectives are: Identify in the nurses' narrative, the contents that are present in the information transmission; and Identify in the nurses’ description, the nursing contents that are present in the data collection.

This project involves a qualitative approach; data collection will be performed with a semi-structured interview and written narratives(3). Participants are going to be selected intentionally. The research population will be the nursing team. Data will be discussed with: 1- “Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) as a comprehensive standardized nursing terminology that has been used to systematically classify nursing care in clinical settings”,“Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) and standardized Nursing Diagnoses (NANDA-I) “ (4) (5); 2- Orem theory of Self-care (6); 3 -“The structure of caring” according to Swanson(7).

The expected duration of this study is two years. It will contribute to increase knowledge in nursing practice. The results could affect directly the nursing intervention and indirectly the health care and health systems.
