Identifying structure and aspects that 'continuing nursing care' used in discharge support from hospital to home care in Japan

, : Identifying structure and aspects that 'continuing nursing care' used in discharge support from hospital to home care in Japan. International Journal of Nursing Practice 19 Suppl 2: 50-58

This study investigated nursing practice in continuing nursing care with the aim of identifying the key factors in nursing practice during discharge support. A literature review of papers published in Japanese in 2000 and 2011 was conducted using 'case management', 'care management', 'continuing nursing care', 'discharge support', 'discharge planning' and 'elderly person' as key words. An analysis of 54 papers revealed the following five aspects of continuing nursing care: (i) a cyclical approach aimed at realising the lifestyle desired by the person concerned; (ii) management of medical conditions for lifestyle stability; (iii) support for the patient as someone who can live independently; (iv) support to raise the ability of families to care for themselves; and (v) team approach to achieve implementation of patient-centred care. Understanding these aspects allows nurses to recreate the lifestyle of patients and families and facilitate the implementation of a systematic team approach.
