Chinese Abstract

長期呼吸器依賴患者(prolong mechanical ventilation,PMV)常有高程度的憂鬱及低自尊,且無法表達其內心的痛苦,而家屬所承受之心靈痛苦及壓力並不亞於病患。故本文運用問卷進行調查,進而探討PMV家屬之心靈狀況,適時給予關懷與輔導。本研究運用橫斷式設計,問卷內容包括四大部分:生命的目的和意義(purpose and meaning in life)、內心的應變力(innerness or inner resources)、天地萬物的一體感(unifying interconnectedness)及超越性(transcendence)。採用卡方與T檢定及Kruskal- Wallis無母數檢定分析。73%接受問卷調查結果顯示:主要年齡分佈主要為45-54歲(28%),在「超越性」平均分數偏低(2.00〜3.45);而「生命的目的和意義」平均分數偏高(3.22〜4.50)。受訪者之靈性健康需求在生命的目的和意義(purpose and meaning in life)、內心的應變力(innerness or inner resources)、天地萬物的一體感(unifying interconnectedness)及超越性(transcendence)皆有顯著的差異,故靈性健康賦予照顧者對自己的價值及意義,逐漸實踐屬於自己的生命意義,對一個主要照顧者是非常重要的。
