Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista

Abstract

Objectives To identify which factors can influence the patients’ perception of protective isolation following Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT). Methods This is a prospective study conducted in 10 Italian centres, members of the Italian Group of stem cell transplant (GITMO). Patients’ perception of protective isolation was assessed using the ISOLA scale between 7 and 9 days post‐transplant. Statistical linear regression analysis was performed. Results The participants were 182 adult patients receiving autologous (48%) or allogeneic (52%) HSCT in protective isolation. Male sex (β = .152), education level (β = −.245), double room (β = .186), satisfaction with visiting hours (β = −.174) and emotional support from nurses (β = −.169) were independently associated with isolation‐related suffering. Significant predictors of the relationship with oneself included body temperature (β = −.179), fatigue (β = −.192) and emotional support from nurses (β = −.292). Factors independently associated with the relationship with others were education (β = −.230), chemotherapy cycles (β = −.218), pain (β = .150) and satisfaction with visiting hours (β = −.162). Conclusion Healthcare providers should pay greater attention in caring for those patients who are at risk for a negative isolation experience. Nurses should provide emotional support
