Mealtime care on a geriatric-psychiatric ward from the perspective of the caregivers: a qualitative case study design

Author

Abstract
This study aims to obtain insight into the care process surrounding mealtimes within a geriatric-psychiatric ward from the perspective of the caregivers. A qualitative study was carried out in accordance with the case study method. Data was generated by participant observation, semi-structured interviews, and focus groups. A mealtime turned out to be a much more complex event than it appears to be, looking at it superficially. The caregivers recognize the valuable therapeutic meaning of the mealtime. Nevertheless, they experience internal conflict when it comes to certain significant problem areas in their search for a balance between the functional-organizational approach and the patient-oriented approach.
