Theory about families & family nursing care

Family can be defined in different ways:
1. Family is formed of people who are married, blood-related, adopted, or living in the same household
2. Family can be two or more people, who are joined together by sharing and emotional closeness
3. Family can be formed by birth, marriage, adoption or choice
(Friedman, Bowden & Jones 2003)

Family health can mean the health status of one family member or the whole family
One family members’ health issues affects the health and functioning of the whole family
“Family health is a state of wellbeing, which includes biological, psychological, spiritual, sociological, and cultural factors of individual family members and the whole family” -> holistic approach (Kaakinen 2010)
Four approaches of family nursing:
Family as context: one individual family member is the patient, other family members either resources or stressor to the patient
Family as client: each individual family member is a patient = all family members are patients
Family systems: both individual family member and the whole family are the patients. One individual’s health affects the whole family
Family as a component of society: family is an institution within society
(Hartrick-Doane & Varcoe 2015)
Type 2 diabetes has stronger link to family history than type 1
Cardiovascular disease may result from genetic causes (gene mutations, the interaction of multiple genes...)
Genetic factors are not the major causes of chronic diseases. Habits also matter.
70-90% of disease risks are due to environmental factors.
Question 1) Heredity of chronic diseases - Diabetes and heart disease

Study made in UK showed physical inactivity to be as deadly as smoking cigarettes
Increased risk of getting hypertension, coronary heart disease, DM2, different cancers, even depression
Physical inactivity is becoming global concern, causing more deaths globally

(NHS 2012)
