Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to to describe which factors of health related quality of life were associated with a high sense of coherence in a 5 year perspective. The sense of coherence, SOC-scale, EORTC QLQ C-30 and PR 25 questionnaires were applied to a sample of 222 men at baseline and over 5 years following radical prostatectomy. Result showed significant association to SOC in psychological aspects (emotional and cognitive functioning, p=<0.00-0.04 respectively 0.04) and for hormone treatment related symptoms (i.e. manhood p=<0.05). High SOC was associated with quality of life (index) in the early post treatment period and to aspects of general functioning (role-, emotional- respectively cognitive) in year 3 and 5. High sense of coherence was interpreted to be a health resource for experiencing life quality connected to different aspects at different time points of the data collection. The result showed stability in SOC and QoL scoring over 5 years.

Abstract [sv]

Sveriges befolkning blir alltmer äldre och det gör att behovet av en välfungerad hälso och sjukvård blir större. För att vi ska behålla hälsan längre upp i åldrarna behövs åtgärder som är hälsofrämjande, vilket kan vara i form av kulturella aktiviteter. Syftet med studien var att undersöka äldre personers beskrivningar av hur kultur kan främja upplevelse av hälsa. Kvalitativ metod användes i studien med semi-strukturerade intervjuer.Deltagarna valdes ut genom ett strategiskt urval med fokus på givna kriterier, där deltagarna inte skulle ha någon form av demenssjukdom. Kvalitativ innehållsanalys genomfördes för att få fram kategorier med tillhörande subkategorier. Utifrån resultatet har tre kategorier tagits fram som var Ett liv med kultur, Kultur som påverkansfaktor för hälsa och Kulturaktiviteter som hälsoarbete. Det övergripande temat Äldreperspektiv på kultur har två underliggande subteman Äldres individperspektiv och Äldres grupperspektiv. Slutsats:Kulturella aktiviteter ökar välbefinnandet och livskvaliteten för äldre, vilket ingår för upplevelse av hälsan. Kulturella aktiviteter ökar även gemenskapoch tillhörighet. Det har framkommit att hälsoarbete inom kultur är väsentligtur både ett individ- och grupperspektiv för upplevelsen av hälsa för äldre. Resultatet i studien kan bidra med förståelse för hur kultur kan främja äldres upplevelser av hälsa.

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To present validity data for the Work Experience Measurement Scale (WEMS), an instrument measuring multifaceted work experience from a salutogenic health resource perspective as a contrast to the more common pathogenic risk perspective, by exploring WEMS relationship to established measurements that are positively related to health and work. A salutogenic perspective focuses on finding conditions and resources in life, for example at work, that can enhance the individual's health and strength, instead of those causing illness and weakness.

METHOD: This study was carried out in 2009 at a Swedish hospital with a web-based survey (WEMS) to 770 employees. Different occupational groups at the hospital participated. Additional questionnaires used at the same time were the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-9), the Salutogenic Health Indicator Scale (SHIS), the General Self-Efficacy scale (GSE), and three questions about self-rated health, general well-being, and quality of life.

RESULTS: Cronbach's Alpha of WEMS sub-indices were in the interval of 0.85—0.96. Convergent validity and discriminant validity of WEMS and its sub-indices were shown to be satisfying by correlations. In addition, WEMS demonstrated the ability to discriminate between groups. WEMS sub-indices discriminated even better between groups than the total index.

CONCLUSION: The WEMS proved to be a workplace health promotion questionnaire that was able to measure experiences of work from a salutogenic perspective. The WEMS has a potential of being a useful tool in workplace health promotion to enhance positive human capabilities and resources to improve work performance.
