The reliability was aptar through Cronbach’s alpha, the constructed validity was confirmed with an exploratory factorial analysis Varimax rotationand the validity of criterion was seen in the correlation between Family APGAR and the defining characteristics of the nursing diagnoses of “Discontinue family processes”. The scores on the questionnaires were compared using correlation and multiple regression analyses.

This finding may be important to general practitioners who operate busy clinics or are inexperienced with the family approach. Completed questionnaires were then brought to the front desk of the outpatient clinic.

Received Dec 8; Accepted Apr However, to implement such interventions, it is suggested a simultaneous use of instruments that gather all dimensions to evaluate family functionality.

In regards to the component members of their family, Nevertheless, the test remains widely and perhaps blindly utilized. The domains “adaptation”, “growth”, “affection” and “resolve” were not identified as factors in the matrix of correlations of exploratory factorial analysis, thus leading to believe that during the use of Family APGAR, specifically among elder respondents of Brazilian Northeast region, other elements of evaluation of the family functionality construct besides “partnership” were not properly contemplated by the mentioned instrument.

For this reason, many physicians hesitate to hold family conferences, which require considerable time and skill. Fundamentos de pesquisa em Enfermagem: Hence, to know the dynamics in how the family system works is an essential part in elderly care, over the many different scenarios of professional care. Adding to that, msilkstein was a pre-test, in order to guarantee the correct administration of the members of the mentioned research group.


Therefore, with this specific public there was the confirmation that the instrument must be qpgar only for screening, to estimate family functionality, as it does not allow a complete evaluation of the construct. This accords with the properties of the Circumplex model, wherein the avoidance of extremes for either dimension is emphasized. The ones responsible to collect the data were previously trained to apply the research instruments. This will require a more tailored response to their task as informal caregivers of elderly with chronic illness.

In the process of determination of the number of factors, the criterion of eigenvalues higher than one was used. The online version of this article doi: A cross-sectional, non-experimental, descriptive — correlational study was conducted, apbar a non-probability sample of convenience consisting of a total of elderly men and women living in the district of Viseu – Portugal, patients of the primary health care unit in their area of residence.

This is a cross-sectional, analytical study of elderly people With regard to employment status, the majority reported being retired We smlikstein observe that the majority of the elderly in the sample had at least one chronic disease The family bonds demonstrated that The scores needed to analyze the correlation using Pearson’s r coefficient between the instrument created and Family APGAR were acquired from the calculation of the average of smllkstein scores found.


In order to do so, the Pearson’s r correlation coefficient was used.

Assessment of Family Functionality Among the Elderly With Chronic Illness

The study of the physical and psychological health of the elderly is considered an area of primary care. The most prevalent chronic diseases in the sample were cardiovascular diseases They were visited, as well as the residence of the users of the Centers located up to nine blocks away from it, in a clockwise direction, to identify the homes of the elders. The analysis of the validity of Family APGAR criterion, in this study, demonstrated to be satisfactory, which can be seen by the Pearson’s r correlation coefficient found: There were 68 This results permits to affirm that Family APGAR classified as a dysfunctional family total results between zero and six points the elders that also achieved family dysfunctionality under the defining characteristics of the nursing diagnose “Discontinued family processes” results between zero and 45 points generated after the application of the instrument specifically designed for this evaluation The technique of “Hotelling’s t-square” was also applied, which tests the blank hypothesis that all averages from all items are the same.

This latter result is important because in the past it was generally believed that family issues occur in response to family dysfunction, while our results indicate that improving family function might not help solving family issues.

Developed init is a 5-item questionnaire with each item rated on a 3-point scale measuring five constructs: One hundred six participants had mental disorders, 45 had hypertension, 45 had hyperlipidemia, and 38 had diabetes mellitus.
