Abstract [en]

Background: There is a lack of knowledge about oral care among older people living in short-term care (STC) units and how the quality of oral care provided by nursing staff is perceived by the older people. Aim: To (i) describe person-related conditions among older people in STC, (ii) describe and compare perceptions of the quality of oral care (including perceptions of care received and the subjective importance of such care), within and between older people who have the ability to perform oral self-care and those who are dependent on help with oral care and (iii) examine the relationship between person-related conditions and the quality of oral care. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 391 older people in STC units in Sweden based on self-reported questionnaire and clinical assessments. Results: The older people were assessed as having normal oral health (2%), moderate oral health problems (78%) or severe oral health problems (20%). When comparing older people's perceptions of quality of oral care in terms of perceived reality and subjective importance, significant differences appeared within and between groups. Psychological well-being had a significant relationship with perception of the quality of oral care (both perceived reality and subjective importance), and gender and oral health status had a significant relationship with subjective importance. Conclusions: Older people's perceptions of areas for improvement regarding quality of oral care is a new and important knowledge for nursing staff in STC units. Older people want personalised information regarding oral health and oral care. Registered Nurses who take the responsibility in nursing care for older people's oral health may avoid unnecessary suffering by older people caused by oral health problems. Implications for practice: Older people's perspective is an important component for quality work and might lead to improvements in the quality of oral care in STC. © 2018 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate oral care and its quality through the perspectives of nursing staff in intensive care units and short-term care units and from the perspectives of older people in short-term care units. Methods: The mix-method study (I) had a concurrent embedded design and was cross-sectional. Eighty-eight intensive care nurses (response rate (RR) 40%) responded to the Nursing Care related to Oral Health questionnaire, and the data were analysed with analytic statistics and qualitative content analysis. The quantitative studies (II-IV), which were also cross-sectional, included 432 nursing staff in intensive care and short-term care (RR 51–52%) and 391 older people (RR 77%) in short-term care units. Participants responded to the modified version of the Quality from Patients’ Perspective instrument and provided information about person-related conditions. Descriptive and analytical statistics were used. Main results: Intensive care nurses perceived having the antecedents, knowledge, and skills to provide optimal oral care quality, but the result indicated that they were having difficulties putting these into practice (I). Areas for improvement in oral care quality were identified in both care environments (II). Older people preferred personalised information about oral health and oral care (III). Nursing staff as well as older people’s perceptions of oral care quality and its humanity aspects, seemed to be related to person-related conditions and differed between the two care environments. In short-term care, nursing staff’s preferences for the humanity aspects of oral care quality were higher compared to older people’s preferences (IV). Conclusion: Oral care is complicated and proactive and requires registered nurses’ and other nursing staff’s attention as well as educational and organisational initiatives. Many older people were assessed to have oral health problems. With early identification and optimal oral care, unnecessary suffering might be prevented. The identified quality improvement areas might guide RNs, nurse managers, and other nursing staff to further oral care quality development.

Abstract [en]

Oral care is complex and multifaceted, and knowledge about nursing staff and older people’s perceptions of oral care quality are limited. The overall aim was to investigate oral care and its quality through the perspectives of nursing staff in intensive care units and short-term care units and from the perspectives of older people in short-term care units.

Intensive-care nurses perceived having the antecedents, knowledge, and skills needed to provide optimal oral care quality, but the result indicated that they were having difficulties putting these into practice. Areas for improvement in oral care quality were identified in both care environments. Older people preferred personalised information about oral health and oral care. Perceptions of oral care quality and its humanity aspects, seemed to be related to person-related conditions, and differed between nursing staff in different units and older people.

Oral care is complicated and proactive and requires registered nurses’ and other nursing staff’s attention as well as educational and organisational initiatives. Many older people were assessed to have oral health problems. With early identification and optimal oral care, unnecessary suffering might be prevented. The identified quality improvement areas might RNs, nurse managers, and other nursing staff to guide further oral care quality development.
