Abstract [en]

Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to identify and describe the ethical values in caring encounters as experienced by older patients in their daily interaction with nurses in wards for older people.Background: Ethical values and morals are important aspects that influence the quality of care. Methods: Empirical observational study including follow-up interviews. Twenty-two older patients participated voluntarily in this study. Constant comparative analysis, the core foundation of grounded theory was used. Results: Five categories; Being addressed, receiving respect, desiring to participate, increasing self-determination and gaining self-confidence formed the bases for the core category: Approaching: Approaching concerns how people become closer to each other in a physical space .It also includes how people become closer to each other in a dialogue, involving verbal or bodily communication. Conclusions and Relevance to Clinical Practice: Approaching indicates the ethical values that guide nurses in their caring encounters with older patients. These values are noted by the patient and have an individual value as well as leading to improved quality of their care. The older patient will be confident and satisfied with the caring encounter if the desired components in the nurse’s approaching are exhibited.
