Description

In Thematic Line 2 (TL2), the research and knowledge translation is coordinated and given direction on the human responses throughout the life cycle to health-disease situations, the self-management of chronic conditions, care delivery to critically ill and perioperative patients, and the provision of palliative and end-of-life care.

TL2 research and knowledge translation concentrates on how people develop self-management actions and responses to the demands of chronic conditions, from diagnosis to death, as well as how they implement self-management actions in response to acute situations involving surgical and/or critical care. TL2 also concentrates research on the nurse's action as a promoter of self-management, identifying and empowering people and/or caregivers/family members regarding the resources available for self-care, rehabilitation, family and social reintegration, and/or a dignified death.

TL2 projects aim to investigate and transfer knowledge about:

− understanding human responses to health-disease situations and nursing care throughout the life cycle. In particular, it welcomes research projects that seek to understand how people experience and/or adapt to health-disease situations;

− self-management of chronic conditions, including research on the barriers to self-management, the development and adaptation of self-management interventions, caregiver involvement, and patient education and empowerment;

− critical and perioperative care, covering research, in one hand, on the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of critical or perioperative patients and their caregivers/family members, and, on the other hand, critical and perioperative care before, during, and after surgery (including rehabilitation care);

− palliative and end-of-life care, including research on symptoms management, advance care planning, psychosocial and spiritual support, caregiver support, ethical and legal issues, and quality of dying and death.

TL2 research aims to contribute to advancing nursing and health care through the production and application of knowledge providing high-value nursing care to critical, chronic, perioperative, or palliative and end-of-life patients, as well as to their caregivers/family members. This care is designed to promote patient well-being and comfort.
