About this Item

148 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.The importance of the nurse-patient relationship to the overall well-being of the person has been explored by nurses. The purpose of this study was to develop a measure of patients perceptions of feeling known by their nurses. Development of the scale was guided by Newmans Health as Expanding Consciousness (1994) and data from a qualitative descriptive study conducted in 2003 (Somerville). The four themes that emerged from the qualitative study were used to guide the development of the 85- item scale. This scale was exposed to a panel of nurse experts and was piloted with five patient participants to determine content validity, readability and understandability. The revised 77- item scale was then administered to 327 surgical inpatients. A sample size of 296 completed surveys was analyzed. A four-component solution was devised using Principal Components Analysis with Varimax rotation. This four-component solution accounted for 63. 3 variance, with a total scale Cronbachs alpha coefficient of 0. 99. This process resulted in a reliable and valid 48 item PPFKN Scale with four components and a total scale Cronbachs alpha coefficient of 0. 98. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783838355986
