  • Grief is Absurd
    • Abstract: The purpose of this article is to critically examine the journey the author took as she navigated her younger brother's sudden accident, and subsequent death. Through the use of reflective autoethnography, she details her brother's accident-related illness and her family's trials as they took care of him for almost 4 years. Furthermore, she offers her inner thoughts as she struggled to balance her life and come to terms with the tragic situation. Findings may help extend the knowledge of the grieving process, death, illness, autoethnographies, and personal narratives.

  • Parents' Views of Their Child's Death by Suicide
    • Abstract: Families who have lost someone to suicide may have missed some significant clues. This is an exploratory study examining 53 parents who have lost a child to suicide. Only 15% were aware that their child was at risk for suicide and were alerted to the risk by their clinician. Forty-four percent had no clue at the time of their child's impending suicide and, in retrospect, were in denial, while the others had only a gut feeling or suspicion. A qualitative analysis of the parents' responses to an open-ended questionnaire suggests that parents need more knowledge about suicide, especially the cues and warning signs to look for in their children, and to be more open to warnings given to them by others.

  • A New Mourning: Synthesizing an Interactive Model of Adaptive Grieving
           Dynamics
    • Abstract: The human grieving response is neither categorically simple, nor is it a predictable linear process. A new paradigm of adaptive grieving is emerging in the grief and bereavement research literature that validates diversity of adaptive responses among grievers, yet suggests essential interrelated components of adaptive grieving. However, theoretical models that effectively synthesize and integrate current empirical knowledge regarding the components of adaptive grieving are lacking. This article proposes the model of adaptive grieving dynamics (MAGD)—which synthesizes four types of interrelated grieving responses by their adaptive function and incorporates them as essential components of an interactive, griever-centered model.

  • The Psychological Impact of Stillbirth on Women: A Systematic Review
    • Abstract: This systematic review explored the psychological impact of stillbirth (from 20 weeks gestation) on mothers. A search was conducted in the National Library for Health and Web of Science, Cochrane Review, and Google Scholar. A secondary search based on results from the preliminary search was undertaken. A systematic search identified 26 articles (8 qualitative, 18 quantitative studies), which met criteria and were reviewed according to guidelines. The findings revealed that stillbirth is a distressing experience that can result in high levels of psychological symptoms including anxiety, depression, distress, and negative well-being. Symptoms appear to be highest in the first few months post loss although there is evidence to suggest that for some, symptoms may persist up to 3 years. The long-lasting impact of stillbirth on women was echoed in the qualitative research. Risk factors for higher levels of anxious and depressive symptoms included higher parity at the time of loss and not being married. Social support in particular was identified to be beneficial for women post loss. Longitudinal studies utilizing designs which permit causality to be determined are required to explore the specific experience of stillbirth. Further exploration of risk and protective factors, cultural beliefs, and the impact on partner relationships is needed. Clinical implications of the findings are discussed in light of current guidance.

  • Ethnic Minorities and Their Health Needs: Crisis of Perception and
           Behaviours
    • Abstract: There is considerable evidence to suggest that racial and ethnic disparities exist in the provision of emergency and wider healthcare. The importance of collecting patient ethnic data has received attention in literature across the world and eliminating ethnic and racial health equalities is one of the primary aims of healthcare providers internationally. The poor health status of certain racial and ethnic groups has been well documented. The improvement of racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare is at the forefront of many public health agendas. This article addresses important policy, practice, and cultural issues confronted by the pre-hospital emergency care setup. This aspect of care plays a unique role in the healthcare safety net in providing a service to a very diverse population, including members of ethnic and racial minorities. Competent decision making by the emergency care practitioners requires patient-specific information and the health provider's prior medical knowledge and clinical training. The article reviews the current ethnicity trends in the UK along with international evidence linking ethnicity and health inequalities. The study argues that serious difficulties will arise between the health provider and the patient if they come from different backgrounds and therefore experience difficulties in cross-cultural communication. This adversely impacts on the quality of diagnostic and clinical decision making for minority patients. The article offers few strategies to address health inequalities in emergency care and concludes by arguing that much more needs to be done to ensure that we are hearing the voices of more diverse groups, groups who are often excluded from engagement through barriers such as language or mobility difficulties.

  • Life Interrupted: The Impact of Complex Chronic Disease from the
           Perspective of Hospitalized Patients
    • Abstract: A growing number of individuals require health services to manage multiple chronic conditions (i.e., complex chronic disease), yet little is known about their experience. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of complex chronic disease on the lives of individuals receiving hospital care. Ninety-five participants were interviewed between February and June 2011 and shared their views on how illness impacted their lives. Interviews were transcribed and thematically coded using computer assisted data analysis software. Participants' views were organized into six themes: loss of: autonomy; meaningful activities; structures of meaning; social fabric; mental health; and finances. Most participants articulated multiple losses, particularly those with high illness severity. This study sheds light on the experience of loss as a consequence of disease. To adequately support the needs of these individuals, a model of care must address the interface between mental, social, and physical health.

  • Normalcy: An Important Focus for Individuals Diagnosed with a
           Haematological Malignancy
    • Abstract: This article presents findings that highlight the significance of the tension between the focus on disease and treatment verses the focus on re-engaging with life for individuals facing the crisis of being diagnosed with a haematology malignancy. The findings are from a study on survivorship conducted throughout Queensland, Australia. The research was based on a qualitative design involving a series of open-ended interviews (n = 50) and one focus group which were recorded, transcribed verbatim, and then coded and thematically analysed for the research. The findings affirm the importance of a sense of normalcy and the process of re-positioning the central role of the disease in the lives of those diagnosed with a haematological cancer. There are key points when a focus on treatment and disease is unavoidable. However, after treatment the need for supportive care and the consequent reminder of the disease and treatment can "taper off." The challenge is to know when to provide support and when to respect the individual's need to let go of a focus on issues associated with treatment and the disease.

  • Uncertainty as Organizing Principle of Action—Teenagers Living with
           Parental Somatic Illness
    • Abstract: Uncertainty as condition for teenage life when confronted with parental serious illness is presented as the main challenge characterizing this situation. Based on the teenagers own accounts narrated in 26 semi-structured interviews, we are able to provide an analytical description of important ways in which parental illness affects every-day life of the teenager. Findings suggest various changes and challenges in family roles and caring patterns, emotional oscillation, changes in relation to peers, and conflicting motives and tasks. These changes are linked to the impact of the uncertainties of the illness situation. A model of uncertainty is proposed which illustrates how various events feed into the underlying uncertainty and fear of losing the parent. The model thus addresses the situation, where the teenagers are compelled to making firm divisions between a private-life world and a social-life world as well as between a family-life zone and a youth-life zone.
