Abstract:

Nurses accompany individuals with substance use disorder (ISUD) in their recovery journey. However, negative attitudes adopted by nurses discourage ISUD from accessing healthcare services, experiencing further consequences of their substance use. Alternatively, nurses can utilize interventions that support the recovery of individuals. Hence, it is beneficial to increase nurses awareness of effective interventions that promote recovery. Purpose: To explore effective nursing interventions used by inpatient nurses in a Canadian academic, teaching, psychiatric hospital that promotes the recovery of ISUD. Objectives: 1) Identify actions, behaviours, and interventions enacted by inpatient psychiatric nurses in real life to promote the recovery of ISUD; 2) highlight similar and different interventions nurses use in actuality in comparison to the literature. Design and Methods: Qualitative Description was used to explore effective recovery-oriented nursing interventions. Four nurses were recruited through purposive sampling. Data was collected using semi-structured interviews and was analyzed using Qualitative Content Analysis. Results: Effective nursing interventions revolved around the themes of person-centred care, empowerment and fostering hope, and utilizing a holistic approach. The study highlights nurse participants utilizing social support, education, withdrawal management, advocacy, and harm reduction to support recovery which were sparsely mentioned in the literature review. Lastly, this study reveals that interventions rooted in spirituality, culture, and disclosure are often unemployed. Conclusion: Nurses can reflect on the utilization of interventions presented within the findings of the study. They can consider how applicable the effective and underutilized nursing interventions are for their settings and apply them as appropriate.
