Abstract [en]

The influence of a person-centred psychosocial unit climate on satisfaction with care and work Aim To describe nurses satisfaction with care and work and to explore the extent to which a person-centred unit climate influenced this satisfaction. Background Although the concept of person-centred care is used to describe high-quality care, there is a shortage of studies exploring the relationship between person-centredness and nurses satisfaction with care and work in acute care settings. Methods Registered nurses within a university hospital in Sweden (n = 206) completed the Satisfaction with Nursing Care and Work Assessment Scale and the Person-centred Climate Questionnaire. The data collected was analysed using descriptive and analytical statistics. Design Cross-sectional explorative study. Results The majority of respondents were satisfied with the care and work situation. Nurses with more than 9 years of work experience were more satisfied with care and work, and there were a significant association between a person-centred psychosocial climate of units and nurses satisfaction with care and work. Conclusions This study provided evidence for a significant association between person-centredness and the satisfaction with care and work of nurses in acute care environments. Implications for nursing management Promoting and implementing a person-centred philosophy of care can be one way to improve nurses satisfaction with care and work.
