English abstract
International cross-cultural comparative nursing research is considered important for the advancement of nursing knowledge, offering a global perspective for nursing. Although this is recognised in policy statements and quality standards, international comparative studies are rare in database citations. In western countries there is a major drive for quality improvement including patient-centred and individualised care. There are only a few studies about nurses’ perceptions of individualised care. The aim of this international cross-cultural study, IC Project International Nurse Study, was to describe and compare individualised care from the nurses’ point of view in eight countries and to pilot and validate the English, Finnish, Greek, Swedish, Portuguese and Turkish versions of the ICS – Nurse Instrument. Data were collected using questionnaires from orthopaedic and trauma nurses from eight countries, Cyprus, Finland, Greece, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom (England) and the USA (Kansas). The target population of the study was nurses working in hospital orthopaedic in-patient wards. The study included a pilot study (n=30 per country) in January 2009. The main data collection took place from March to May 2009 (n=1200, at least 150 completed questionnaires from each country, based on power analysis for between-country comparison). The analysis is based on statistical methods. The results of this cross-cultural comparative nursing study will be shared with delegates. Based on the results of the earlier comparative nursing studies cross-cultural differences are expected in nurses’ perceptions about individualised nursing care.
