Transference is generally recognized as an unconscious inevitable part of relationships. Both nurse and patient "transfer" their past emotional and psychological needs into present situations and react accordingly.
Assessment of problem and analysis of its causes:
This article explores the dilemma posed with regard to a prostate cancer patient suffering from transference syndrome.
Strategy for change:
We developed a case management model to provide cancer patients as a consultation corner. Additionally, in an attempt to improve the quality of life of cancer patients, this model encourages medical personnel to discuss sexual, belonging and love problems with patients and hold attitudes of professionalism, composure, caring, and solemnity. Belonging and love need is a basic need of human beings.
Measurement of improvement:
This paper describes the meaning of transference and their importance in the therapeutic nurse-patient relationship. Finally, development of greater insights into the nurse-patient relationship will help nurses use those insights to improve the quality of patient interactions and care.
Effects of changes:
For patients with prostate cancer, this basic need cannot be satisfied, even professionally trained medical personnel have difficulty directly addressing this problem.
Nurse's emotional and behavior reactions will influence and reflect the reactions of the patients. Nurses need to gain insight into their contributions to relationships with patients in order to detect patients' thoughts and feelings. They have to recognize the patient's needs and maintain a neutral and uncritical attitude.
This study can provide the information for these teaching hospitals to understand the prevalence, coping behaviors and management strategies of nurses suffering from " transfer"in medical workplace.
