Attitudes and influencing factors of nursing assistants towards hospice and palliative care in Chinese nursing homes: a cross-sectional study

The general theory of hospice and palliative care in China is mainly provided by public primary care facilities, where nursing homes are seldom present. Nursing assistants play a vital role in the HPC multidisciplinary team, but little is known about their views toward HPC. This research sought to determine the attitudes and triggers that influence HPC in NAs. The mean attitude of attitudes was 72. 44. 56 U00b19. 56, with a mean item score of 3. 6. 50 u00b10. 5. The highest scoring score was u201cperception of the life quality promotion'u201d, while the lowest score was u201cperception of the risks from the worsening conditions of elderly patients'u201d. Knowledge score and preparation requirements were positively correlated with HPC's attitudes towards HPC. Based on the key findings reported in this research, integrated HPC in NHs can only be achieved through the involvement of positive and enabled NAs, so targeted education is highly recommended.

Healthcare Provider Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices in Hospice Care and Their Influencing Factors: A Crosssectional Study in Shanghai.

Background In 2017, the Chinese government launched a pilot program in hospice care, in which Shanghai was a pioneer. Healthcare provider knowledge, attitudes, and practices in hospice care can support or hinder HC growth. To determine how to develop KAPHC training for healthcare professionals and policies to raise their KAPHC, we conducted an original survey in Shanghai using an indigenized KAPHC scale to comprehensively assess the KAPHC baseline of healthcare providers and policy to reveal its influence factors. 42. 4 percent of participants had HC experience, and 57. 49% were willing to provide HC. The 7027 KAPHC scaling findings showed that 52. 4 percent of participants had HC experience and 57. 49% were ready to provide HC. Higher KAPHC ratings were attributed to education and enthusiasm, as well as a variety of career specializations, according to the linear regression. Conclusion We found that targeted training for improving healthcare provider KAPHC in Shanghai should emphasize psychological and spiritual care, pain relief, and traditional Chinese medicine.
