Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to describe the current conceptualisation of self-management of dementia by family carers in the literature and from the views of dementia professionals and family carers, and to establish a more comprehensive concept of self-management of dementia by family carers.

Design/methodology/approach

A hybrid concept analysis included three phases: the theoretical phase reviewed the literature on self-management of dementia by family carers; the fieldwork phase interviewed professionals and family carers; and the analytical phase synthesised and discussed the findings from the previous two phases.

Findings

The findings revealed that self-management of dementia by family carers encompasses four domains: supporting care recipients, self-care, sustaining a positive relationship with care recipients, and personal characteristics and skills.

Originality/value

The findings highlighted the essential elements of the construct of self-management of dementia by family carers. The findings can be used as a conceptual framework of self-management and are useful in designing and evaluating self-management support interventions for family carers.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to examine the adoption of fintech products in Jordanian commercial banks, focusing on the influence of environmental regulations. Specifically, the study investigates the impact of environmental pressures (competitors pressure, customer pressure) and top management support on the adoption of fintech products.

Design/methodology/approach

A questionnaire survey was conducted, and data from 550 respondents familiar with the bank’s operations, once you have responses, use structure equation modeling to understand the relationships between variables. Also, applied the regression model to predict outcomes for new respondents. Ensure ethical considerations, like informed consent, are addressed throughout the process.

Findings

The results reveal that competitors pressure and customer pressure have a significant positive influence on the adoption of fintech products, indicating that banks are more likely to adopt fintech solutions when faced with increasing competition and customer demands. Furthermore, top management support was found to be positively associated with the adoption of fintech products, emphasizing the importance of leadership in driving successful integration. Also, regulators and policymakers can foster FinTech adoption in the banking sector by creating supportive frameworks that balance innovation and risk. The findings highlight the need for Jordanian commercial banks to recognize and respond to environmental pressures to remain competitive and meet customer expectations. Additionally, regulations might encourage the development of financial products and services within the fintech sector. This study enriches fintech adoption literature in the context of Jordanian commercial banks.

Originality/value

This study contributes to the existing literature by shedding light on the factors influencing fintech adoption in Jordanian commercial banks and provides practical implications for banks, regulators and policymakers seeking to promote fintech adoption within the financial sector.
