Abstract [en]

 

Aim. The aims of this article were to describe both how guidelines were derived from the theory of gerotranscendence and the actual guidelines. It also discusses the relevance of guidelines to practice.

Background. This article describes how guidelines were derived from the theory of gerotranscendence as well as the content of the guidelines and how they could be used. The view of ageing introduced by the theory may have several consequences for nursing staff members’ attitudes and treatment of older people, as it offers a new understanding of living in old age.

Resultant guidelines. Concrete guidelines at three levels – focusing on the individual, activity and organization – were derived using focus groups. The guidelines describe different ways to support older people in their process towards gerotranscendence.

Conclusion. The theory of gerotranscendence and the guidelines could help support nursing staff in their attitude towards older people and could be used as a supplement to enrich the present care.
