    Having to focus on doing rather than being: nurse assistants' experience of palliative care in municipal residential care settings2012Inngår i: International Journal of Nursing Studies, ISSN 0020-7489, E-ISSN 1873-491X, Vol. 49, nr 4, 455-464 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Palliative care should be provided, irrespective of setting to all patients facing a life-threatening illness and to their families. The situation and needs of older people differ from those of younger people since they often have several co-existing diseases and health complaints. This implies an extensive need for care and for longer periods of palliative care. The main providers of palliative care for older people are nurse assistants, who are also those with the shortest education. AIM: The aim of this study was to illuminate nurse assistants' experience of palliative care for older people in residential care. DESIGN: The study had an explorative, descriptive design. SETTINGS: Thirteen residential care units in three different districts in a large city in southern Sweden. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-five nurse assistants selected to represent variations in age, gender workplace and work experience. METHODS: Data were collected from six focus-group interviews and subjected to content analysis to gain an understanding of the phenomenon. RESULTS: The nurse assistants described palliative care as a contrast to the everyday care they performed in that they had a legitimate possibility to provide the care needed and a clear assignment in relation to relatives. Palliative care also meant having to face death and dying while feeling simultaneous that it was unnatural to talk about death and having to deal with their own emotions. They emphasised that they were in need of support and experienced leadership as invisible and opaque, but gained strength from being recognized. CONCLUSION: In order to support nurse assistants in providing high quality end-of-life care, more focus is needed on the trajectory of older peoples' dying, on the importance of involving relatives throughout the period of care provision, and on support when encountering death and dying. There is also a need for engaged care leaders, both registered nurses and managers, to recognize the work of nurse assistants and to support care provision for older people within the framework of palliative care philosophy.

    Nurse assistants’ experience of an intervention focused on a palliative care approach for older people in residential care2012Inngår i: International Journal of Older People Nursing, ISSN 1748-3735, E-ISSN 1748-3743, Vol. 9, nr 2, 140-150 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background.  Nurse assistants working in residential care facilities need support to ensure that they provide high-quality care for the residents and support for relatives, from admission to bereavement.

    Aim.  The aim was to describe the nurse assistants’ experience of how an intervention with a palliative care approach, had influenced them in their work in residential care for older people.

    Participants.  Fourteen nurse assistants working in three different municipal residential care facilities.

    Methods.  Data were collected by means of semi-structured individual interviews following an intervention consisting of study circles combined with workshops. The data were analysed using content analysis.

    Result.  The nurse assistants felt that, through the intervention, they had gained insight into their understanding of the importance of quality of care. This included an increased awareness of, and respect for, residents’ and relatives’ needs, and an increased understanding of the importance of the outcome of encounters with residents and their relatives. After the intervention, they also felt there was increased openness and understanding between colleagues. However, the nurse assistants also expressed frustration over obstacles to implementing a palliative care approach, such as lack of resources and supportive leadership.

    Conclusion.  The nurse assistants felt that the intervention was positive and encouraged them to provide more person-centred care within the framework of a palliative care approach. Although the intervention was intended to involve and support the management, it was not sufficient. Nurse assistants described lack of resources and supportive leadership. There is, therefore, a need to place greater emphasis on leadership and their support of nurse assistants so that they can provide high-quality care.

    Implications for practice.  To support nurse assistants in the provision of care, clear leadership and opportunities to discuss and reflect on issues associated with care, including systematic improvement work in practice, appear to be essential to ensure high-quality care.

    Secondhand smoking in Swedish municipal home nursing: a qualitative pilot study2012Inngår i: Public Health Nursing, ISSN 0737-1209, E-ISSN 1525-1446, Vol. 29, nr 6, 525-533 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective

    The purpose of this study was to explore licensed practical nurses’ (LPNs’) views of being exposed to secondhand smoke in municipal home nursing care.

    Design and sample

    Using a qualitative approach, data were collected through three focus group interviews with 15 LPNs, smokers, and nonsmokers. Qualitative content analysis was used to interpret the interview text.

    Results

    Exposure to secondhand smoke during working hours, which presents a risk to the health and wellbeing of the LPNs, is a consequence of placing the interests of the smoking care recipients first and the employers’ reluctance to take action on behalf of the LPNs. These factors prompted LPNs to propose solutions aimed at resolving a major dilemma in routine home nursing care.

    Conclusions

    A combination of actions, particularly by managers, is required to improve the working environment for LPNs while concurrently respecting the care recipients’ right to take decisions in their own homes.

    A comparison between orthopaedic nurses’ and patients’ perception of individualised care2012Inngår i: International Journal of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing, ISSN 1878-1241, E-ISSN 1878-1292, Vol. 16, nr 3, 136-146 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This exploratory study compares orthopaedic nurses’ perceptions of individualised nursing care with previously published orthopaedic patients’ perceptions. Orthopaedic nurses (N = 243) from one university, two central and two county hospitals working within in-patient care were surveyed using the Individualised Care Scale-Nurse (ICS-Nurse) in 2009 (response rate 74%, n = 180). The data were analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. About 60% of the nurses stated that it was very important that the care provided is individualised in comparison with 86% of the patients as previously reported (p-value <0.001). The highest rated assessment of individualised care was the clinical situation and the lowest the personal life situation which is in line with the patients’ experiences. This result demonstrates the need of managers in healthcare organisations to redouble their efforts in the implementation of individualised care by investigating nurses’ contemporary beliefs about, and forces that hinder the provision of individualised nursing care.

    Kurator på akuten?: personalens syn på behovet av en kurator på akutmottagningen2012Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Dagligen sker akuta besök i hälso- och sjukvården där de medicinska behoven vanligen har högst prioritet. Samtidigt inrymmer dessa situationer även praktiska, sociala, emotionella och existentiella aspekter som inte bara rör personen som är akut sjuk utan också deras anhöriga och personalen. Patient och anhöriga kan komma i kläm då det kan saknas tid, resurs och kunskap för att möta deras behov. Även personalen kan hamna i svåra situationer då de måste tackla svåra händelser som inte alltid bearbetas. På vissa akutmottagningar används en kurator som har till uppgift att stödja patienter, anhöriga och personal.

    Syfte: Syftet med den aktuella studien var att undersöka vårdpersonalens syn på behovet av en kurator på en akutmottagning.

    Metod: En intervjustudie genomfördes där datainsamlingen skedde i tre fokusgrupper. Materialet analy- serades med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

    Resultat: Personalen uttryckte att det fanns behov av en kurator inom fyra skilda områden: Som stöd och resurs för anhöriga och patienter i kris; Som stöd och resurs för personalen i anslutning till krävandesituationer; Som ansvarig för debriefing samt Som ansvarig för att utbilda personal i samtalsmetodik ochkrishantering. Vikten av att kuratorn är känd av personalen och känner akutmottagningens verksamhet påtalades genomgående i intervjuerna.

    Diskussion: I verksamheten på en akutmottagning finns behov av att ge stöd inte bara till patienter och anhöriga utan också till personalgruppen som ska tackla svåra och krävande situationer i sitt arbete. Om inte ett sådant stöd finns är risken stor att omvårdnaden blir uppgiftsinriktad istället för omsorgsinriktad och att personalens hälsa i förlängningen påverkar negativt. En kurator med koppling till akutmottagningen skulle kunna fylla en sådan funktion.

    Utveckling av samverkan: ett deltagarorienterat aktionsforskningsprojekt inom hälso- och sjukvård2012Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Det övergripande vetenskapliga syftet med denna avhandling att nå en ökad förståelse om samverkansprocesser.

    Ansats och metoder: Studien har bedrivits genom deltagarorienterad aktionsforskning inom hälso- och sjukvården i Hässleholm. Aktörer på verksamhetsfältet har strävat efter att utveckla samverkan för att tillsammans kunna utveckla närsjukvård. Forskningen har genererat kunskap utifrån lokala omständigheter att tjäna som underlag för beslut om att genomföra praktiska förändringar i verksamheten. En kombination av olika metoder har använts för att generera empiriskt material, där den huvudsakliga metoden har varit deltagande observationer med dialog. Därutöver har intervjuer och granskning av dokument använts samt en forskningscirkel, som är en speciell metod inom deltagarorienterad aktionsforskning. Studien har haft en hermeneutisk ansats och tolkningar har gjorts med stöd av olika teoretiska perspektiv och modeller. Kurt Lewins fältteori har utgjort en övergripande teoretisk ram för studien.

    Resultat: En ökad förståelse om den studerade samverkansprocessen kunde nås genom att beskriva och tolka skeenden som antogs ha påverkat utvecklingen av samverkan. Processen beskrevs både utifrån vertikal och horisontell integrering inom och mellan organisationer. Beskrivningen innefattade komponenter som fanns både inom arbetsprocesser och sociala processer. Den studerade samverkansprocessen delades in i delprocesser där var och en del innehöll en viss typ av aktivitet som genomfördes för att stödja utvecklingen av samverkan. Två olika strategier för utvecklingen av samverkan identifierades och illustrerades genom olika modeller: den linjära hierarkiska modellen respektive den dynamiska modellen. Den sistnämnda utvecklades genom aktionsforskningen.

    Slutsatser:I ett första skede bedrev deltagarna på fältet samverkan med stöd av den linjära hierarkiska modellen. Denna modell utgör ett tankeschema där samverkan utvecklas i en linjär hierarkisk process. Politiker fattar beslut, chefer planerar och professionella genomför aktiviteterna. Modellen utgår ifrån ett konsensusteoretiskt perspektiv där konflikter betraktas som störande element. Det innebar i detta fall att aktörer inom olika domäner och organisationer undvek varandras olika föreställningsvärldar varpå samverkansprocessen stötte  på hinder i utvecklingen. Aktionsforskningen intervenerade i processen genom arrangera kommunikationsarenor med deltagare från olika domäner och organisationer. Samverkan utvecklades på så sätt utifrån den dynamiska modellen. Denna modell innehåller antaganden om att samverkansprocesser är dynamiska och har sin utgångspunkt i ett konfliktteoretiskt perspektiv där konflikter betraktas som naturliga i processen.

    Kartläggning av DISA – ett skol­baserat program för att förebygga depression hos ungdomar. Poster presenterad vid Riksföreningen för skolsköterskors kongress, april 2012, Stockholm2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Depression och annan psykisk ohälsa hos ungdomar skapar stort lidande hos den enskilde och dess närstående, och har också ett samband med lägre studieresultat och ökade kostnader för samhället. Det är därför viktigt att undersöka om skolbaserade insatser för att förebygga depression har effekt.

    Swedish health care professionals' view of frailty in older persons2012Inngår i: Journal of Applied Gerontology, ISSN 0733-4648, E-ISSN 1552-4523, Vol. 31, nr 5, 622-640 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a paucity of research literature concerning frailty in older persons from the health care professionals' perspective. Consequently, the purpose of this study was to elucidate health care professionals' view of frailty in older persons. An explorative, qualitative design was selected and four focus groups comprising 21 health care professionals were conducted, audiotaped, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed. Frailty was found to consist of seven dimensions: "being bodily weak and ill," "being negatively influenced by personal qualities," "lacking balance in everyday activities," "being dependent in everyday life," "not being considered important," "being hindered by the physical milieu and defective community service," and "having an inadequate social network." The results showed that health care professionals' view of frailty in older persons differed from the current state of knowledge on frailty. This implies that the seven dimensions found to constitute frailty could contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the concept.

    International school children's health needs: school nurses' views in Europe2012Inngår i: Journal of School Nursing, ISSN 1059-8405, E-ISSN 1546-8364, Vol. 28, nr 2, 144-152 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Rapid globalization and the integration of national economies have contributed to the sharp rise in enrollment in international schools. How does this global nomadism affect international school children and their individual health needs? This study attempts to find an answer by interviewing 10 school nurses, with varying degrees of experience in international schools in Sweden, Germany, and Switzerland. Through qualitative semistructured interviews, the school nurses described that the international school children expressed common health needs similar to the ones faced by children in other school settings. However, children in the international schools expressed additional context-specific health needs related to their transient lifestyle, such as language and cultural difficulties, emotional distress, vulnerability, homesickness, alienation, and increased physical health needs related to their expatriate lifestyle. These factors often present a challenge for the school nurse whose profession is to interpret the child’s health needs, which may be obscured by cultural diversity.

    Nurses’ sociodemographic background and assessments of individualized care2012Inngår i: Journal of Nursing Scholarship, ISSN 1527-6546, E-ISSN 1547-5069, Vol. 44, nr 3, 284-293 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to explore the association between nurses’ characteristics (educational level, country, work title, gender, type of work, age, and length of working experience) and their assessments of individualized care. Design: A cross-sectional comparative survey using questionnaires was employed to sample nurses from seven countries. Methods: Data were collected from orthopedic and trauma nurses from Cyprus, Finland, Greece, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States (N= 1,163, response rate 70%) using the Individualized Care Scale-Nurse (ICS-Nurse) and a sociodemographic questionnaire in 2008. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and general linear models. Results: When compared with practical nurses, registered nurses, length of working experience, and the country of the nurses were associated with assessments of the support of patient individuality in specific nursing activities (ICS-A-Nurse) and country assessments of individuality in the care provided (ICS-B-Nurse). The background and experience within nursing teams together with the country affect the delivery of individualized care. Conclusions: Overall, our findings suggest that nurses’ personal attributes have important effects on their assessments of individualized nursing care that will be useful when making context-dependent recruitment decisions. Clinical Relevance: The characteristics of nurses contribute to the care delivered in healthcare organizations. Recognition of these nurse-related factors may help nurse leaders in the development and management of clinical practice.

    Construct validity of the SF-12 in three different samples2012Inngår i: Journal of Evaluation In Clinical Practice, ISSN 1356-1294, E-ISSN 1365-2753, Vol. 18, nr 3, 560-566 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Rationale, aims and objectives  Studies have challenged the validity and underlying measurement model of the physical and mental component summary scores of the 36-item Short-Form Health Survey in, for example the elderly and people with neurological disorders. However, it is unclear to what extent these observations translate to physical and mental component summary scores derived from the 12-item short form (SF-12) of the 36-item Short-Form Health Survey. This study evaluated the construct validity of the SF-12 in elderly people and people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and stroke.

    Methods  SF-12 data from a general elderly (aged 75+) population (n = 4278), people with PD (n = 159) and stroke survivors (n = 89) were analysed regarding data quality, reliability (coefficient alpha) and internal construct validity. The latter was assessed through item-total correlations, exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses.

    Results  Completeness of data was high (93–98.8%) and reliability was acceptable (0.78–0.85). Item-total correlations argued against the suggested items-to-summary scores structure in all three samples. Exploratory factor analyses failed to support a two-dimensional item structure among elderly and stroke survivors, and cross-loadings of items were seen in all three samples. Confirmatory factor analyses showed lack of fit between empirical data and the proposed items-to-summary measures structure in all samples.

    Conclusions  These observations challenge the validity and interpretability of SF-12 scores among the elderly, people with PD and stroke survivors. The standard orthogonally weighted SF-12 scoring algorithm is cautioned against. Instead, when the assumed two-dimensional structure is supported in the data, oblique scoring algorithms appear preferable. Failure to consider basic scoring assumptions may yield misleading results.

    Swedish nursing students' experience of aspects important for their learning process and their ability to handle the complexity of the nursing degree program2012Inngår i: Nurse Education Today, ISSN 0260-6917, E-ISSN 1532-2793, Vol. 32, nr 4, 453-457 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to explore nursing students' experiences of aspects important for their learning process and their ability to handle the complexity of the nursing degree program. The study was longitudinal and qualitative based on interviews with nursing students, six women and two men aged 20-36, during their three years of education. In all, seven patterns were found embracing aspects of importance for the students' learning: Having a clear goal, being able to re-evaluate one's ideas, being acknowledged, when the abstract becomes tangible, using one's own experiences as a tool for learning, hovering between closeness and distance regarding one's future profession and handling theory and practice in relation to one another. The results show the importance of providing clinical courses, strongly connected to the theoretical parts of the program and to use reflection and experience-based learning in the nursing program.

    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan andra världskrigets slut finns omfattande forskning om veteransoldater i andra länder och olika former av stöd har utvecklats till soldater. Förvånansvärt litet forskning finns om motsvarande utveckling i Sverige. Vid Högskolan Kristianstad skapades under 2011 en forskargrupp inom socialt arbete med fokus på soldater, veteraner och deras anhöriga. Forskargruppen utvecklar forskning också inom sociologi och historia. Jag är en av forskarna vid Högskolan Kristianstad. Jag är huvudansvarig för forskningsprojektet När en anhörig går ut i krig: Om sociala konsekvenser och utveckling av stöd till soldat- och veteranfamiljer före, under, efter och sén som planeras innebära att vi följer FS 24 och deras anhöriga.

    Using a time-geographical diary method in order to facilitate reflections on changes in patterns of daily occupations2012Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 19, nr 3, 249-259 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective and methods: Time-use methodologies have been proposed to be established research techniques when exploring aspects of daily occupations. In this study, two graphs illustrating the time arrangement of occupations as they appear in a continuous sequence were used in order to encourage individuals to reflect on their everyday life. The aim was to investigate the usefulness of a time-geographical diary method (using illustrative graphs) in combination with stimulated-recall interviews, to facilitate reflections on how patterns of daily occupations change over time and the causes that lie behind these changes. The study had a qualitative design. The participants were two working, married mothers, i.e. individuals considered to have highly complex patterns of daily occupations. The data analysis was performed by using thematic content analysis. Results: The results showed that the stimulated-recall interviews, based on the graphs, facilitated new insights that came to light concerning the scope of the participants' daily life. The method enabled the participants to reflect on their patterns of daily occupations and become aware of changes relevant to explain the causes for engaging in occupations the way they did. Conclusions: The method thus seems useful in research and practice for occupational therapists working with individuals with a need to change lifestyle.

    Job satisfaction and associated variables among nurse assistants working in residential care2012Inngår i: International psychogeriatrics, ISSN 1041-6102, E-ISSN 1741-203X, Vol. 24, nr 12, 1904-1918 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background:While the work situation for nurse assistants in residential care is strenuous, they themselves often state that they are satisfied with their job. More knowledge is clearly needed of the interrelationship of variables associated with job satisfaction. This study aims to investigate job satisfaction and explore associated variables among nurse assistants working in residential care.

    Methods: A total of 225 respondents completed a questionnaire measuring general job satisfaction, satisfaction with nursing-care provision and measures concerning person-centered care, work climate, leadership, and health complaints. Job satisfaction was the outcome measure and comparisons were made among those reporting low, moderate, and high levels of job satisfaction; multiple regression analyses were used to explore associated variables.

    Results: The caring climate and personalized care provision were associated with general job satisfaction. High levels of satisfaction with nursing-care provision were also associated with the general work climate, organizational and environmental support, and leadership. Low job satisfaction was mainly associated with health complaints.

    Conclusions: Nurse assistants working in a positive work climate, caring climate, with a positive attitude to their leaders, who receive organizational and environmental support, provide person-centered care and experience a higher degree of job satisfaction. It seems essential, however, to include both general and context-specific measures when investigating job satisfaction in this field as they reveal different aspects of the nurse assistant's work situation.

    Facilitating change, the decision-maker’s views of municipality organized food distribution to elderly people living at home and suggestions for development: a participatory action research study2012Inngår i: Public Administration Research, ISSN 1927-517X, Vol. 1, nr 1, 14-23 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is the final part of a larger project with an action research approach focusing on food distribution (FD) within municipal service and care for elderly persons, living at home (≥65 years), from various perspectives. The aim was to describe the decision-makers’ the politicians and top level administrative manager’s views on the FD service, and to give feedback from the results of earlier studies based on information given by FD receivers, the perspectives of involved professionals, and the results of an intervention study and further to report the decision-makers suggestions for which areas should be taken into consideration as starting points to improve the FD process and practice. Data was gathered in two steps: step 1, through individual interviews (n=12) with the decision-makers during the spring of 2009, step 2a through feedback from previous studies, received during the autumn of 2011 and step 2b from discussions based on the feedback. The interview data was analysed using qualitative content analysis. The findings indicated a discrepancy between the reality and the political visions. It was shown that decision-maker’s needed to make decisions despite their uncertain knowledge of the complexity of the FD programmeThey considered what has been, what is, and will be, when setting goals. Their goal was that elderly person’s rights and needs should be fulfilled. This included freedom of choice and individual consideration. In addition, it meant, meeting elderly people’s medical and social needs. Three areas were found to require facilitation for change related to FD: 1) the monitoring of the elderly’s health and wellbeing while providing FD, 2) the increasing of professional competence, and 3) the creation of a forum for inter-professional communication. The findings in this study have implications for nursing, gerontology and public administration.

    The experiences of elderly people living at home related to their receiving meals distributed by a municipality in Sweden2012Inngår i: Journal of Food Research, ISSN 1927-0887, Vol. 1, nr 1, 68-78 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to describe the experiences of elderly people, living at home who receive hot meals that are distributed by their municipality. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyse the (n=13) interviews. The results showed that feelings of dependency, loneliness and gratitude were expressed by the participants in the study related to their meals being delivered home. Dependency was expressed as not having influence over the food products the meals were made from. Loneliness was expressed as being isolated and being confined at home alone due to difficulties getting out of the house, which was associated with the costs of taxis transportation. Gratitude was expressed by the sincere thanks for the possibility of receiving traditional meals delivered daily.

    The major conclusion of the study was the indication that greater attention should be paid to meet both the practical and psychological needs of elderly people.

    Evaluation for change, the decision maker’s involvement in the development of food distribution to home living elderly people2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Findings from international research as well as from Sweden show that food distribution as a single inter­vention involves various professional groups on the various levels in organisation.

     

    The present research is one of several Action Research projects initiated as a result of a resolution on the highest political level aiming at achieving improvements within the care and service through collaboration between different levels in the organisations.

     

    The overall aim of this specific study is to describe the “top-down” perspective i.e. decision-makers involvement in identifying areas for the development of the food distribution chain.

     

    Data was collected in two steps, firstly by individual interviews with decision makers (politicians n=21, one administrative manager and one medical responsible nurse) and secondly by evaluation dialogue in group (n=23) discussion. The group discussions were based on findings from individual interviews and results from two previous studies focused on interviews with various professionals and food distribution recipients.

     

    The findings were that food distribution was seen as a multifaceted system that included three interrelated issues: the administration of work, the professional’s competence in nutrition and the relationship between various professional groups. To achieve a change, the central component of complexity needs to be clarified. When the issues are multifaceted the solutions need to regard the whole picture rather than its parts.

    Public home care professionals’ experiences of being involved in food distribution to home-living elderly people in Sweden: a qualitative study with an action research approach2012Inngår i: Journal of Nursing Education and Practice, ISSN 1925-4040, E-ISSN 1925-4059, Vol. 2, nr 2, 41-51 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Research focusing on Food Distribution (FD) from various professionals’ and organisational perspectivesare lacking. The aim of this study was therefore to explore various professionals’ experiences of involvement in FD inorder to get comprehensive understanding of the organisation, responsibilities and roles.

    Methods: This qualitative study is a part of a larger project with an action research approach focusing on FD in themunicipal home service and care for home-living elderly persons in a municipality in southern Sweden. The data wascollected through participatory observations (n=90 occasions and in total 480 hours), repeated focus group interviews (n =4) with different professionals (n =10) involved in the FD process and one individual interview. The material was analysedby qualitative manifest and latent content analysis.

    Results: The study indicates that Food Distribution is a fragmentary intervention where a comprehensive perspective andclear roles of responsibility are lacking. The FD organisation seemed to be strictly divided and limited by constraintsregarding time and money. The fragmented organisation led partly to staff only taking responsibility for their part of thechain and no one having the full picture of and responsibility for the FD process, but also to some professionals takingmore responsibility than they were supposed to.

    Conclusions: The aim of the study was met by using an action research approach. The study was however limited by thatno home help officers were represented. The FD appeared as an extremely complex chain of different but connectedactivities. It is not merely the distribution of a product, i.e. the meal box. The fragmentation of FD means that staff onlytakes responsibility for their part of the chain, and that no one has the full picture of or responsibility for the FD process.Consequently, there is a need for an outline of responsibilities. The findings have implications for nursing, gerontology,and in the care for the elderly.

    A seven country comparison of nurses’ perceptions of their professional practise environment2012Inngår i: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 20, nr 2, 236-248 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims  To describe and compare nurses’ perceptions of their professional practice environment in seven countries.

    Background  There is evidence of variation in the nursing professional practice environments internationally. These different work environments affect nurses’ ability to perform and are linked to differing nurse and patient outcomes.

    Methods  A descriptive, comparative survey was used to collect data from orthopaedic and trauma nurses (n = 1156) in Finland, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey and Kansas, USA using the 39-item Revised Professional Practice Environment instrument.

    Results  Differences were found between participants from the northern countries of Europe, Kansas, USA, and the Mediterranean countries regarding perceptions about control over practice. No between-country differences were reported in the internal work motivation among the nurses from any of the participating countries.

    Conclusions  Although between-country differences in nurses’ professional practice environment were found, difficulties related to demographic, cultural and health system differences and the way in which nursing is defined in each country need to be considered in the interpretation of the results.

    Implications for Nursing Management  The results support investment to improve nurse’s work environment, which is important for improving the quality of patient care, optimizing patient outcomes and developing the nursing workforce.

    Coordinated care planning in public health care in Sweden2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to describe, increase the understanding of, and contribute to a theoretical development of how to look at care planning in public health care in Sweden. By transferring some of the medical care from hospitals to a patient's actual home in the 1990s, valuable beds at hospitals were made available to other patients. Patients who have been properly medically treated at hospitals should be discharged from the hospital as soon as possible. This enables a transferral of aftercare to the patient's home or to a municipally organised living accommodation for e.g. the elderly. In order to make sure that patients receive continued care after their discharge from the hospital, Sweden introduced a law concerning co-ordinated care planning (SOSFS 2005:27). This law prescribed that professionals at hospitals should work together with the patient, close kin and caretaker representatives (primarily in the patient's municipal) in order to agree on the need for continued care. In practice this means that an assistance administrator (the person who makes decisions concerning municipal care efforts) a nurse from the municipal home health care system, a nurse from the hospital department at which the patient was admitted, alongside with the patient and his or her close kin should form a care planning team who meet in order to plan the continued need for care. Ultimately the doctors have formal responsibility. In addition to this law, there are agreements between the county council responsible for the medical care and municipals responsible for home health care, well prepared routines for practical approaches, as well as IT support making sure that information is properly transferred to safeguard the safety of the patient and smooth processes (Region Skåne 2011). Despite legislations, governing and control, there are a number of problems when it comes to actual co-ordinated care planning, why is that so? (Augustinsson 2010; Judge 2003; Czarniawska and Lindberg 2006; Lidén 2009; Lindström 2011). This was the basis of the research assignment, i.e. studying actual events behind co-ordinated care planning and developing theoretical models that may be of use to the care planning team. Rather than focusing on the research objective, we asked "What happens in the process of co-ordinated care planning?" This question formed the basis of ten semi-structured interviews with nurses working with co-ordinated care planning at a hospital. We focused on events, interpretations, experiences and emotions in order to follow up with questions that could offer more details on descriptions and analyses. At the introductory phase of the analysis of the transcribed interviews, we asked the following questions "What is going on here?" and "What do the natives [professionals] think they are up to?" From these analyses of the empirical material (interviews as well as documents) and previous theoretical viewpoints of researchers and their knowledge of the field, one overall question emerged: "What happens in the gap between formal structure such as legislations, routines and standardised procedures, and the informal meaning actual co-ordinated planning processes?" The empirical material also included observations of mutual meetings at the hospital between nurses working with co-ordinated planning. The empirical material, based on the answers to the questions above, have later been addressed from various theoretical aspects in order to open up and create new perspectives on events and new theoretical models. This approach means that neither empirical material nor theories are taken for granted. The conclusion of the study, albeit preliminary, is that too many routines and regulations in a co-operation will make professionals unable to see solutions found outside of the predetermined boundaries. The detail level of regulations may be such a problem. This has been frequently discussed and is a known phenomenon among researchers studying knowledge development, safety and quality in organisational work (Dreyfus and Dreyfus 2003; Weick 2009).

    Predictors of self-rated health and lifestyle behaviours in Swedish university students2012Inngår i: Global Journal of Health Science, ISSN 1916-9736, Vol. 4, nr 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Lifestyle behaviours are usually formed during youth or young adulthood which makes college students a particularly vulnerable group that easily can adopt unhealthy lifestyle behaviour. Aim: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to explore the influence of socio-demographic factors on Swedish university students’ lifestyle behaviours and self-rated health. Method: Data were collected from a convenience sample of 152 students using questionnaires consisting of a socio-demographic section followed by previously well-validated instruments. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics: t-tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and regression tests. Findings: The results of this study show that the lifestyle behaviours under study (physical activity, perceived stress and eating behaviours) as well as self-rated health can be predicted to a certain extent by socio-demographic factors such as gender, mother tongue and parents’ educational level. Male university students were shown to be physically more active than female students; the male students were less stressed and rated their overall health, fitness level and mental health higher. Female students were more prone to adopt unhealthy eating behaviours. Discussion: This study addresses gender differences and their influences on lifestyle behaviours; it provides both theoretical explanations for these differences as well as presents some practical implications of the findings.

    Motor and non-motor predictors of illness-related distress in Parkinson's disease2012Inngår i: Parkinsonism & Related Disorders, ISSN 1353-8020, E-ISSN 1873-5126, Vol. 18, nr 3, 299-302 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To identify motor and non-motor symptoms independently associated with distress in Parkinson's disease (PD).

    METHOD: Clinical and patient-reported data from 118 people with PD (mean age and PD-duration, 64 and 8 years) were analyzed regarding associations with patient-reported distress using multiple regressions (controlling for age).

    RESULTS: Non-motor symptoms independently associated with distress were pain, fatigue, sleep, depression and anxiety (R(2), 0.81). The only significant motor aspect was mobility (R(2), 0.31). When considering both motor and non-motor symptoms, fatigue, pain, depression and sleep showed independent associations with distress (R(2), 0.76).

    CONCLUSION: Distress in PD is primarily associated with non-motor features.

    Being in want of control: experiences of being on the road to, and making, a suicide attempt2012Inngår i: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 7, 16228- s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Attempted suicide is a risk factor for future suicidal behaviour, but understanding suicidality from the perspective of people who have experienced attempted suicide is limited. The aim of the study was to explore the lived experience of being suicidal and having made a suicide attempt, in order to identify possible implications for health care professionals. Semi-structured individual interviews were held with 10 persons shortly after they attempted suicide and were analysed through qualitative content analysis. The participants’ experience of being suicidal and of having attempted suicide could be described as “Being on the road towards suicidal action”, which culminated in an experience of either chaos or turned off emotions, “Making sense of the suicide attempt”, and “Opening the door to possible life lines”. An overall theme, “Being in want of control”, captured their all-embracing lack of sense of control and was seen in relation to different aspects of oneself, overall life-situation, the immediate suicide attempt situation and in the outlook on the future. Being in want of control may be a relevant and general feature of being suicidal. People who have attempted suicide need more adequate help to break vicious circles before they reach a point of no return and enter an acute suicidal state of mind. Patients’ experience-based knowledge is highly important to listen to and use clinically as well as theoretically when constructing suicide prevention programs.

    Sätt måltidsupplevelsen i centrum2012Inngår i: Kristianstadsbladet, ISSN 1103-9523, nr 16/6, B4- s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Måltidsupplevelsen påverkas av så mycket; ljuset i lokalen, ljud, dukning, servering, bemötande, maten, smakerna, doften och sällskapet. Men hur kan den kunskapen omsättas på sjukhus och äldreboenden? Det skriver Albert Westergren, professor i omvårdnad, Kerstin Blomqvist, biträdande professor i klinisk omvårdnad, Anna-Karin Edberg, professor i omvårdnad, och Pia Petersson, ansvarig för sjuksköterskeprogrammet, samtliga på Högskolan Kristianstad.
