Family Nursing as an Improvement Strategy of Family Health Index in Indonesia: A Literature Review
Abstract
The occurrence of health issues in the family affected by the ability of the family itself to carry out the role and task of family health care. Family nursing has been developed in various countries as a solution to solve individual, family, and community health issues in a region. The family health status in Indonesia is measured by the Family Health Index (FHI) value, comprising the category of unhealthy families (FHI < 0.50), pre-healthy families (FHI value of 0.50 to 0.80), and healthy families (FHI > 0.8). This study aims to generate a literature review on strategies that can be used to improve the Family Health Index. The search database includes CINAHL, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar with several keywords: 'family nursing', 'family health', and 'family health status'. 102 articles published between the year of 2000 until 2019 have been obtained. The results of the literature review indicate that family nursing is an innovative and efficient strategy to achieve a preferable health status as well as a better quality of human life. Family nursing has a positive correlation with the increased ability of families to carry out their task in maintaining, preventing and overcoming family health issues independently. Research on the families' ability to carry out health care tasks to improve the health status by measuring FHI has never been done previously. Future research is required to discuss the relationship of families' ability in carrying out the five health care tasks to improve FHI independently in Indonesia.
