use disorder: A Literature Review

  • Novice Level 

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will summarize two infrequently mentioned nursing interventions that promote recovery

Abstract:

Nurses support the recovery of individuals with substance use disorder. How they support individuals, however, may impact the effectiveness of their work. For example, there are various paradigms of recovery which alter interventions. Additionally, negative attitudes adopted by clinicians discourages individuals who use substances from accessing healthcare services, experiencing further health deterioration. Alternatively, nurses can enact interventions that promote positive experiences, further supporting the recovery of individuals. Hence, it is beneficial to increase nurses’ awareness of effective interventions that promote recovery. The purpose of this literature review is to examine effective nursing interventions that promoted recovery of those with substance use disorders from the perspective of nurses and individuals who received nursing care. The review identified that effective interventions were based on three major themes: person-centred care, empowerment, and maintaining supports and capability enhancement. Additionally, literature revealed that some interventions were perceived to be more effective; this depended upon whose viewpoint was examined – nurses or individuals with substance use disorders. Lastly, there are interventions based on spirituality, culture, advocacy, and self-disclosure that are often disregarded but may be effective. Nurses should utilize the more prominent interventions as they offer the most benefit and integrate interventions that are often overlooked.

    Well done Niall, I liked your presentation it was well done. Many of the points you brought out are important. Some of them have been looked at before and sound very much like case management. The individual client/patient is important and speaks to individualizing the care process among multiple disciplines. Look forward to reading your article when it is published.

    Hi Bari,
    This was great information! I was wondering if you are seeing an increase in the number of nurses entering treatment as a result of being front line workers for COVID-19. I recognize it may be too early to tell and may not be as significant in your area at this time, but we have seen significant stress among health care providers in the north east aspect of the US.
