    The development of the strain in dementia care scale (SDCS)2015In: International psychogeriatrics, ISSN 1041-6102, E-ISSN 1741-203X, Vol. 27, no 12, p. 2017-2030Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Though many staff gain satisfaction from working with people with dementia in residential facilities, they also experience significant stress. This is a serious issue because this in turn can affect the quality of care. There is, however, a lack of instruments to measure staff strain in the dementia-specific residential care environment, and the aim of this study, accordingly, was to develop the "Strain in Dementia Care Scale."

    METHODS: The instrument was developed in three steps. In the first step, items were derived from six focus group discussions with 35 nurses in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Sweden concerning their experience of strain. In the second step, a preliminary 64-item scale was distributed to 927 dementia care staff in Australia and Sweden, which, based on exploratory factor analysis, resulted in a 29-item scale. In the final step, the 29-item scale was distributed to a new sample of 346 staff in Sweden, and the results were subjected to confirmatory factor analysis.

    RESULTS: The final scale comprised the following 27 items producing a five-factor solution: Frustrated empathy; difficulties understanding and interpreting; balancing competing needs; balancing emotional involvement; and lack of recognition.

    CONCLUSIONS: The scale can be used (a) as an outcome measurement in residential care intervention studies; (b) to help residential facilities identify interventions needed to improve staff well-being, and, by extension, those they care for; and ((c) to generally make more salient the critical issue of staff strain and the importance of ameliorating it.)

    RHAPSODY - Internet-based support for caregivers of people with young onset dementia: program design and methods of a pilot study2016In: International psychogeriatrics, ISSN 1041-6102, E-ISSN 1741-203X, Vol. 28, no 12, p. 2091-2099Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Young Onset Dementia (YOD), defined by first symptoms of cognitive or behavioral decline occurring before the age of 65 years, is relatively rare compared to dementia of later onset, but it is associated with diagnostic difficulty and heavy burden on affected individuals and their informal carers. Existing health and social care structures rarely meet the needs of YOD patients. Internet-based interventions are a novel format of delivering health-related education, counseling, and support to this vulnerable yet underserved group. Methods: The RHAPSODY (Research to Assess Policies and Strategies for Dementia in the Young) project is a European initiative to improve care for people with YOD by providing an internet-based information and skill-building program for family carers. The e-learning program focuses on managing problem behaviors, dealing with role change, obtaining support, and looking after oneself. It will be evaluated in a pilot study in three countries using a randomized unblinded design with a wait-list control group. Participants will be informal carers of people with dementia in Alzheimer's disease or behavioral-variant Frontotemporal degeneration with an onset before the age of 65 years. The primary outcome will be caregiving self-efficacy after 6 weeks of program use. As secondary outcomes, caregivers' stress and burden, carer health-related quality of life, caring-related knowledge, patient problem behaviors, and user satisfaction will be assessed. Program utilization will be monitored and a health-economic evaluation will also be performed. Conclusions: The RHAPSODY project will add to the evidence on the potential and limitations of a conveniently accessible, user-friendly, and comprehensive internet-based intervention as an alternative for traditional forms of counseling and support in healthcare, aiming to optimize care and support for people with YOD and their informal caregivers.

    Psychometric properties concerning four instruments measuring job satisfaction, strain, and stress of conscience in a residential care context2013In: Archives of gerontology and geriatrics (Print), ISSN 0167-4943, E-ISSN 1872-6976, Vol. 57, no 2, p. 162-171Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are many instruments assessing the wellbeing of staff, but far from all have been psychometrically investigated. When evaluating supportive interventions directed toward nurse assistants in residential care, valid and reliable instruments are needed in order to detect possible changes. The aim of the study was to investigate validity in terms of data quality, construct validity, convergent and divergent validity and reliability in terms of the internal consistency and stability of the Job Satisfaction Questionnaire, the Psychosocial Aspects of Job Satisfaction, the Strain in Dementia Care Scale (SDCS), and the Stress of Conscience Questionnaire (SCQ) in a residential care context. The psychometric properties of the instruments were investigated in terms of data quality, construct validity, convergent and divergent validity and reliability, including test-retest reliability, in a residential care context with a sample consisting of nurse assistants (n=114). The four instruments responded with different psychometric-related problems such as internal missing data, floor and ceiling effects, problems with construct validity and low test-retest reliability, especially when assessed on the item level. These problems were however reduced or disappeared completely when assessed for total and factor scores. From a psychometric perspective, the SDCS seemed to stand out as the best instrument. However, it should be modified in order to reduce floor effects on item level and thereby gain sensitivity. The Job Satisfaction Questionnaire seemed to have problems both with the construct validity and test-retest reliability. The final choice of instrument must, however, be made dependent on what one intends to measure.

    Job strain and stress of conscience among nurse assistants working in residential care2015In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 368-379Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim The aim was to investigate job strain and stress of conscience among nurse assistants working in residential care and to explore associations with personal and work-related aspects and health complaints. Background It is important to investigate job strain and stress of conscience, both for the well-being of the nurse assistants themselves and for the impact on the quality of care they provide. Method Questionnaires measuring job strain, stress of conscience, personal and work-related aspects and health complaints were completed by NAs (n = 225). Comparisons of high and low levels of job strain and stress of conscience and multiple linear regression analyses were performed. Result Organisational and environmental support and low education levels were associated with low levels of job strain and stress of conscience. Personalised care provision and leadership were related to stress of conscience and the caring climate was related to job strain. Conclusion There is a need for support from the managers and a supportive organisation for reducing nurse assistants work-related stress, which in turn can create a positive caring climate where the nurse assistants are able to provide high quality care. Implications for nursing management The managers' role is essential when designing supportive measures and implementing a value-system that can facilitate personalised care provision.

    Leadership and person-centeredness – important factors of job strain and stress of conscience among nurse assistants’ working in residential care2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction : It is important to investigate the job strain and stress of

    conscience (SC) of NAs not only for the sake of nurse assistants

    (NAs), but also due to the impact on the quality of care they provide.

    Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate job strain, SC and

    associated variables among NAs working in residential care. Method :

    NAs (n=225) completed questionnaires, including job strain, SC and

    potentially associated variables. The variables were compared

    concerning high and low job strain and SC and were explored with

    multiple linear regression analyses. Results : Organisational and

    environmental support, personalised care provision and, a positive

    caring climate were associated with low job strain and SC as well as

    NAs receiving a supportive leadership. In addition, having compulsory

    schooling in comparison with upper secondary schooling was

    associated with low job strain and SC. Factors related to health

    complaints and work-related information were associated with high

    job strain and SC. Conclusion : Exploring and adopting a broader

    perspective of factors which are connected to strenuous aspects of

    NAs’ work situation in residential care are important for the provision

    and management of nursing-care. In order to ensure the wellbeing of

    NAs and in turn the quality of care, both the NAs and their leaders

    need to be addressed simultaneously. Person-centeredness concerns

    the actual care-provision and the care climate which need to be

    implemented into the care system/care philosophy. This highlights the

    importance of the leaders’ role as crucial when implementing or

    sustaining person-centred care in residential care for older people.
