    Advance Care Planning for Older People: The Influence of Ethnicity, Religiosity, Spirituality and Health Literacy.Kay de Vries, Elizabeth Banister, Karen Harrison Dening & Bertha Ochieng - 2019 - Nursing Ethics 26 (7-8):1946-1954.
    In this discussion paper we consider the influence of ethnicity, religiosity, spirituality and health literacy on Advance Care Planning for older people. Older people from cultural and ethnic minorities have low access to palliative or end-of-life care and there is poor uptake of advance care planning by this group across a number of countries where advance care planning is promoted. For many, religiosity, spirituality and health literacy are significant factors that influence how they make end-of-life decisions. Health literacy issues have (...)

    A Survey of Ethical Issues Experienced by Nurses Caring for Terminally Ill Elderly People.S. Patricia D. Enes & Kay de Vries - 2004 - Nursing Ethics 11 (2):150-164.
    This study examined the ethical issues experienced by nurses working in a small group of elderly persons’ care settings in the UK, using a survey questionnaire previously used in other countries for examining the cultural aspects of ethical issues. However ‘culture’ relates not only to ethnicity but also the organizational culture in which care is delivered. Nurses working in elderly persons’ care settings described a range of issues faced when caring for elderly terminally ill people, which illustrated the different needs (...)

    Humility and its Practice in Nursing.Kay de Vries - 2004 - Nursing Ethics 11 (6):577-586.
    Following a personal experience of transformation as a result of washing the feet of a terminally ill patient, an exploratory study was undertaken to investigate nurses’ experience of washing patients’ feet. Seven postregistration student nurses participated in the study by washing the feet of as many patients as they could over a defined period of time. They were then interviewed about the experience. The transcribed interviews were analysed using the heuristic enquiry approach. Symbolically, washing feet is an act of humility. (...)

    A Concept Development of `Being Sensitive' in Nursing.Kirstine Lisa Sayers & Kay de Vries - 2008 - Nursing Ethics 15 (3):289-303.
    `Being sensitive' in nursing was explored using Schwartz-Barcott and Kim's hybrid model of concept development, producing a tentative definition of the concept. Three phases were employed: theoretical, empirical/fieldwork and analytical. An exploration of the literature identified where the common idea of `being sensitive' as a nurse was embedded and demonstrated that a theoretical development of this fundamental aspect of nursing was absent. The empirical phase was conducted using semistructured interviews with nine expert palliative care and cancer nurses. This method was (...)
