Evaluation of the Implementation of the Family Caregiver Monitoring Model: A Quasi-experimental Study
Data collection was carried out through research in the files of patients with dependence, in the previous six months, either in the diagnosis phase or in the phase after the implementation of the intervention, of the nurses of two family health units. Focuses/statements of diagnoses and interventions related to care provided to caregivers were identified. Statistically significant changes were identified after the intervention was implemented, in the identification of the focus Caregiver role (p = 0.001); From the processes with an active recording of the foci and records in other phases of the nursing process (p = 0.002). A significant statistical increase was found in the final assessment (p = 0.001) for the diagnostic domain of Caregiver Role. The Instruct and Train actions showed a statistical significant decrease of records in the final assessment (p = 0.014 and p = 0.018, respectively). The Stimulate interventions showed a marginally significant increase of the records (Initial assessment-5; Final assessment-28) (p = 0.050).
