Description:
The nurse's experiences of social isolation among their residents at the srudy site were explored through a descriptive qualitative research approach. A search of literature conducted indicated a dearth of published work on this topic, especially in Irish context. A focus group meeting attended by four of the nurses produced information that was further explored during the subsequence six semi-stroctu.red interviews which were audio-taped and later transcribed verbatim. Colazizzi (1978) framework of data analysis was used to arrive at the three main findings of the study which are; • Social isolation; a deterrent to quality of life among the older persons • Social intervention; a cost effective non-pharmacological therapy • Educational needs of the nurses working with the older persons The study findings confirm the existence of social isolation at !:be study siie. The possible causes, clinical features as well as interventions were highlighted. Nurses have significant role in the identification, management and prevention of social isolation. Yes, nurses have constraints in their performance of social intervention programmes. The need for retraining of the nurses will enhance performance of a nursing role capable of facilitating healthy ageing process. 2
