Description

The purpose of this poster is to explore the concept of family beliefs and how nurses can adequately use these beliefs to effectively care for patients. Beliefs are important because they shape the family and individuals as well as dictate how the family perceives care. When approaching the idea of family beliefs it is necessary to be conscious of diverse beliefs and their continual fluidity in the family. Family nursing text books, course work, and family belief literature were reviewed to identify a definition of the concept, its significance, exemplar cases, and recommendations for nursing practice. The results revealed the most effective way to gain understanding of family beliefs is through experience and continued learning through literature. Nurses need to be able to identify beliefs that constrain or facilitate family action and then intervene accordingly. Through this research further understanding of the importance of integrating family beliefs into nursing care was accomplished.
