  • Product Description
 

Autonomy and empowerment are core concerns in the field of geriatric care but the discussion has been mostly based on the health professionals’ point of view and in the context of long-term care. The aim of this study was to explore the concept of autonomy and the empowerment process in hospitalized older people encompassing the nurses’ and patients’ points of view. A qualitative study design was drawn up within a phenomenological approach. Nurses’ life histories and patients’ biographic narratives were collected. Hermeneutic analysis was performed. Patients and nurses have different concepts from each other regarding autonomy and empowerment. Patients have a more comprehensive view of these concepts but feel powerless, voiceless and would like to hold more power regarding the dimensions of care that are currently dependent on nurses’ action. The differentiation of latent and manifest autonomy emerged in this study. In hospital, latent autonomy is significantly higher than manifest autonomy and nurses play a significant role in the extent of the gap between these two dimensions. Empowering interventions might transform patients’ latent autonomy into one that is vivid and manifest.
