This paper introduced the research status and development trend of human caring theory in nursing science in recent 10 years. Chinese nursing researchers can carry out theoretical research on clinical research, nursing management and nursing education based on its theoretical connotation and combining clinical and teaching environment.

Editor’s summary

Dr. Jean Waston, a famous American contemporary nursing theorist, first combined human caring and nursing, and in 1979 officially founded the human caring science theory. With the development of the bio-psycho-social medical model, the position of humane caring in the field of nursing is becoming more and more important, and it is increasingly being used by clinical nurses, nursing educators, etc.

ABSTRACT

Aims: To analyze the research status and development trend of human caring theory in the field of nursing in China, and to provide better reference for theory and research. Methods: All articles related to human caring theory were searched in the China national knowledge infrastructure (CNKI), Wanfang Data and VIP database which were published in the past year was searched. NoteExpress document management software and Excel software were used to conduct bibliometrics analysis on the annual distribution, regional distribution, journal distribution, fund support and research content of the documents. The search time was from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2009. Results: A total of 113 articles were included in the literature. The total number of published articles showed a slow and tortuous trend. After 2013, the volume of publications was relatively stable. The core journals accounted for 17.7% of the total number of articles, and most of them came from hospitals.

Highlights

This article systematically evaluated the effect of FICare mode on the growth and development of premature infants in NICU. Meta-analysis showed that FICare mode can effectively promote the growth and development of premature infants and alleviate the harm caused by the separation of mother and infants.

Editor’s summary

FICare is the philosophy that guides how we provide care for infants in the NICU, which effectively integrates the parents of premature infants to care for the newborn with the medical staff, and shifts the focus from focusing on the treatment of premature infants to establishing effective kinship with the family.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To systematically review the effect of Family Integrated Care (FICare) mode on the growth and development of premature infants. Methods: Systematic searches in PubMed, EMBASE, The Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Chinese biomedical literature database, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang medical and VIP database were performed for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) or quasi-RCTs which explored the effects of FICare mode on growth and development of premature infants in neonatal intensive care unit. Then, meta-analysis was performed by RevMan 5.3 after two independent investigators screened the literature, extracted the data and evaluated the risk of bias of all included studies. Results: A total of 14 articles were included, including 3120 preterm infants and their families. Meta-analysis showed that compared with the traditional management mode, FICare mode can effectively improve the growth rate of premature infants' weight [Weight mean difference (WMD) = 4.02, 95%CI (2.47, 5.56), P < 0.001], increase sleep time [WMD = 3.25, 95%CI (2.05, 4.44), P < 0.001], improve breastfeeding rate [RR = 1.38, 95%CI (1.15, 1.64), P < 0.001], reduce readmission rate [Relative risk (RR) = 0.49, 95%CI (0.33, 0.71), P < 0.001], promote the development of the nervous system [WMD = 3.96, 95%CI (3.18, 4.74), P < 0.001], improve nursing skills of Premature infants' parents [WMD = 17.40, 95%CI (13.64, 21.1), P < 0.001], reduce the influence of maternal and infant separation on parents' emotions. Conclusion: FICare mode can effectively promote the growth and development of premature infants and alleviate the harm caused by the separation of mother and infants. Limited by the quality and region of the included studies, the appeal conclusion still needs to be tested by more high-quality studies.

  • Introduction to cognitive assessment scales in screening for mild cognitive impairment after stroke: A review 
    ...
    Objective: In order to improve the quality of life of patients more effectively, this paper introduces the types and usages of scales for screening mild cognitive dysfunction after stroke and provides a basis for early identification of mild cognitive impairment. Methods: Read, analyze, summarize, and sort out relevant literature. Results: The mild cognitive impairment assessment scales are broadly divided into two categories: the comprehensive rating scales and the special assessment scales. There are 7 comprehensive assessment scales for the comprehensive rating scales, among which the Mini-mental State of Examination and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Scale are the most widely used. The special assessment scales are mainly evaluated by the symptoms of cognitive dysfunction and can be divided into five types. Conclusion: Early diagnosis and intervention in patients with cognitive dysfunction will help improve the prognosis of patients. Each assessment scale has its advantages and limitations in both sensitivity and discrimination. Effective use of appropriate scales to diagnose cognitive dysfunction and to screen early, to prevent early, to treat early can effectively improve the quality of life of elderly patients....

  • Moxibustion therapy guided by Midnight-noon Ebb-flow theory on Chinese patients with ankylosing spondylitis: A quasi-experimental study 
    ...
    Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Midnight-noon Ebb-flow theory guided moxibustion therapy for the management of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in a pragmatic way. Methods: AS patients were randomly allocated to the Control group, Moxibustion I group or the Moxibustion II group. AS patients in the Control group received conventional intervention alone, while AS patients in the Moxibustion I group and Moxibustion II group received 4-week conventional moxibustion and Midnight-noon Ebb-flow theory guided moxibusiton therapy, respectively. BATH scores, HRQoL, and inflammatory and immune indicators were assessed at base-line and at the endpoint-week 6. Result: After 4-week inpatient moxibustion intervention, only performance of physical function measured by BASFI (F = 17.1, P < 0.01), and disease activity by the BASDAI (F = 17, P < 0.01) were statistically significant differences be-tween three groups, and the BASMI score were no group differences (F = 3.15, P = 0.07). The effect of Midnight-noon Ebb-flow theory based moxibustion was shown to be better than conventional moxibustion therapy in the level of ESR (between-group difference was 2.67, 95% CI, 0.15 to 5.18; P = 0.04) and the radio of CD4+CD25+CD127 low (between-group difference was -2.83, 95% CI, -4.68 to -0.98; P < 0.01). However, with the use of Tukey multiple comparisons test, compared with the conventional moxibustion therapy alone, Mid-night-noon Ebb-flow theory based moxibustion therapy had no statistically significant improvement in the serum levels of IL-6, IL-17, TNF-α (P > 0.05). Conclusion: Overall, Midnight-noon Ebb-flow theory guided moxibustion therapy significantly improved the physical activity and health-related quality of life, reduced the disease activity, and decreased the systemic inflammation for AS patients....
