    Nutrition and its relation to mealtime preparation, eating, fatigue and mood among stroke survivors after discharge from hospital: a pilot study2008In: The Open Nursing Journal, ISSN 1874-4346, Vol. 2, p. 15-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eating difficulties and nutritional deficits are common among persons with acute stroke and during rehabilitation. Little is known about such problems after discharge from hospital. In addition the relationship between fatigue and nutritional status among stroke survivors living in the community remains to be explored. The aim of this pilot study was to describe mealtime preparation, eating, fatigue, mood and nutritional status among persons with stroke six months after discharge from hospital and to explore associations between these factors. Patients were interviewed six months poststroke. Standardised questions and methods were used. The mean age of the 89 respondents was 77.2 (SD 6.6) years, 44 were women and 45 men. Difficulties with swallowing, ingestion and energy to eat occurred among 27%, 20% and 7% respectively. Difficulties with cooking and buying food occurred among 57% and 56% respectively and 41% were at nutritional risk. Feeling full of energy less than some of the time was experienced by 61% while 15% had felt gloomy and sad at least some of the time during the previous four weeks. Considering activities of daily living (ADL), having a less favourable nutritional status was significantly predicted by difficulties with buying food, difficulties with ingestion and being a woman. Considering psychological state (mood and energy), having a less favourable nutritional status was significantly predicted by a lack of energy and high age. This study supports the occurrence of a nutritionally related fatigue by means of “lack of energy”. The associations between poor nutritional status and fatigue can work in both directions. Thus persons with fatigue are more prone to have poor nutritional status and those with poor nutritional status are at greater risk of fatigue. Besides fatigue also difficulties with buying food and ingestion are associated with nutritional risk. As nutritional deficits occur a long time after stroke onset it is important to assess aspects of mealtime preparation and the eating process and when necessary provide food delivery service and eating assistance in order to prevent a vicious circle of undernourishment and fatigue to develop.

    Svårigheter att äta2003Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna bok sätts äldres ätande i fokus i stället för, som brukligt är, deras nutrition. Författarna utgår från de senaste forskningsrönen och visar på den praktiska betydelsen av forskningens resultat.

    Följande aspekter på äldres ätande tas upp:

    • ätandet ur ett socialt och kulturellt perspektiv

    • måltidsvanor, måltidsmiljö och rutiner

    • åldrandets, sjukdomars och munhälsans inverkan på ätandet

    • bedömning, behandling och bekräftelse vid svårigheter att äta

    • konsekvenser av svårigheter att äta

    • etiska aspekter på ätande

    • utbildning om ätande.

    Boken är allmängiltigt för alla som på något sätt arbetar med måltidsrelaterade uppgifter och äldres ätande på sjukhus, inom särskilt och ordinärt boende. Boken vänder sig även till studerande inom högskola och universitet.

    VÅRDlitt-serien är en utveckling av den tidigare FoU-serien som Vårdförbundet initierat i syfte att stärka medlemmarna i den professionella yrkesutövningen.

    Syftet med serien är att:

    • stimulera till utveckling av läromedel och fackböcker

    • göra kunskapen tillgänglig

    • synliggöra dess tillämpbarhet

    • sprida angelägen kunskap.

    The minimal eating observation form – version II (MEOF-II) revisited – validity and reliability2019In: Journal of Nursing Measurement, ISSN 1061-3749, E-ISSN 1945-7049, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 478-492Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background and purpose: The Minimal Eating Observation Form-Version II (MEOF-II) is a screening and research tool for eating difficulties. Here we assess the psychometric properties of the tool. Methods: Cross-sectional MEOF-II data, n = 5,956 persons (nursing home residents [n = 3,087]; in-hospital patients [n = 1,490]; mean age 76.9; 61% women). Data was analyzed taking account of the dichotomous nature of item-level data, that is, based on tetrachoric correlations. Results: The MEOF-II items (n = 9) belonged to one higher order unidimensional factor (61.7% explained variance, omega 0.92), and three lower level factors, with three items each (92.9% explained variance, omega 0.83-0.88): deglutition; ingestion; and energy/appetite. Conclusion: The study provides support for the reliability and validity of the MEOF-II total scale and subscales, and the findings are in line with previous studies.

    Study circles improve the precision in nutritional care in special accommodations2009In: Food and Nutrition Research, ISSN 1654-6628, Vol. 53, p. 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Disease-related malnutrition is a major health problem in the elderly population, but it has until recently received very little attention, especially are management issues under-explored. By identifying residents at the risk of undernutrition, appropriate nutritional care can be provided.

    Objectives: Do study circles and policy documents improve the precision in nutritional care and decrease the prevalence of low or high BMI?

    Design: Pre and post intervention study.

    Setting: Special accommodations (nursing homes) within six municipalities were involved.

    Participants: In 2005, 1726 (90.4%) out of 1910 residents agreed to participate and in 2007, 1526 (81.8%) out of 1866 residents participated.

    Intervention: Study circles in one municipality, having a policy document in one municipality and no intervention in four municipalities.

    Measurements: Risk of undernutrition was defined as involving any of: involuntary weight loss, low BMI, and/or eating difficulties. Overweight was defined as high BMI.

    Results: In 2005 and 2007, 64% of 1726 and 66% of 1526 residents respectively were at the risk of undernutrition. In 2007 significantly more patients in the study circle municipality were accurately provided protein and energy enriched food compared to in the no intervention municipalities. There was a decrease in the prevalence of low BMI in the study circle municipality and the prevalence of overweight increased in the policy document municipality between 2005 and 2007.

    Measuring next of kin's experience of participation in the care of older people in nursing homes2020In: PLoS ONE, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 15, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Lack of conceptual clarity and measurement methods have led to underdeveloped efforts to measure experience of participation in care by next of kin to older people in nursing homes.

    OBJECTIVE: We sought to assess the measurement properties of items aimed at operationalizing participation in care by next of kin, applied in nursing homes.

    METHODS: A total of 37 items operationalizing participation were administered via a questionnaire to 364 next of kin of older people in nursing homes. Measurement properties were tested with factor analysis and Rasch model analysis.

    RESULTS: The response rate to the questionnaire was 81% (n = 260). Missing responses per item varied between <0.5% and 10%. The 37 items were found to be two-dimensional, and 19 were deleted based on conceptual reasoning and Rasch model analysis. One dimension measured communication and trust (nine items, reliability 0.87) while the other measured collaboration in care (nine items, reliability 0.91). Items successfully operationalized a quantitative continuum from lower to higher degrees of participation, and were found to generally fit well with the Rasch model requirements, without disordered thresholds or differential item functioning. Total scores could be calculated based on the bifactor subscale structure (reliability 0.92). Older people (≥ 65 years) reported a higher degree of communication and trust and bifactor total scores than younger people (p < 0.05 in both cases). People with a specific contact person experienced a higher degree of participation in the two subscales and the bifactor total score (p < 0.05 in all three instances).

    CONCLUSION: Psychometric properties revealed satisfactory support for use, in nursing home settings, of the self-reported Next of Kin Participation in Care questionnaire, with a bifactor structure. Additional research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the scales' abilities to identify changes after intervention.

    TRIAL REGISTRATION: The KUPA project has Clinical Trials number NCT02708498.

    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?

    Measurement properties of the Minimal Insomnia Symptom Scale as an insomnia screening tool for adults and the elderly2015In: Sleep Medicine, ISSN 1389-9457, E-ISSN 1878-5506, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 379-384Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    The psychometric properties of the three-item Minimal Insomnia Symptom Scale (MISS) were evaluated using the classical test theory. Different cut-offs for identifying insomnia were suggested in two age groups (≥6 and ≥7 among adult and elderly people, respectively). The aim of the present study was to test the measurement properties of the MISS using the Rasch measurement model, with special emphasis on differential item functioning by gender and age.

    Methods

    Cross-sectional MISS data from adult (age 20-64 years, n=1075) and elderly (age 65+, n=548) populations were analysed using the Rasch measurement model.

    Results

    Data generally met Rasch model requirements and the scale could separate between two distinct groups of people. Differential item functioning was found by age but not gender. The difference between the adult and elderly samples was lower for the originally recommended ≥6 points cut-off (0.09 logits) than for the ≥7 points cut-off (0.23 logits), but greater at the lower and higher ends of the scale.

    Conclusions

    This study provides general support for the measurement properties of the MISS. Caution should be exercised in comparing raw MISS scores between age groups, but applying a ≥6 cut-off appears to allow for valid comparisons between adults and the elderly regarding the presence of insomnia. Nevertheless, additional studies are needed to determine the clinically optimal cut-score for identification of insomnia.

    Nursing students gain tools for knowledge utilisation through a work and research integrated learning assignment – a qualitative study2013In: Journal of Nursing Education and Practice, ISSN 1925-4040, Vol. 3, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: By integrating education, research and collaboration with society, in a learning assignment, the level of nursing students learning can be enhanced.

    Aim: The purpose of this study was to explore nursing students’ experiences of participating in a work and research integrated learning assignment during their clinical practice courses.

    Methods: At the end of their nursing training, in their sixth semester, five nursing students were recruited to the study and interviewed after which the texts of interviews were analysed using content analysis. The participants had been involved in two studies, one during their second semester, where the risk of falling was assessed, and one during their sixth semester where the risk for under nutrition was assessed.

    Results: The students experienced that the two assignments enhanced their learning in how to work as a foreman/supervisor, how to inform and engage in dialogue, about using risk assessment, and further, gave them the opportunity to meet the people behind the diagnosis. Through assignments they could also identify the need for knowledge within the study focus, for instance, the risks for falling or the risk of undernourishment. Further, they described how they tried to live up to the ethical standards and that they had learned about using a scientific approach in their work.

    Conclusion: It is possible to integrate Research, Education and Collaboration in a learning assignment during Nursing education (RECN-assignment) by allowing nursing students to participate in an actual research project during their work integrated learning courses. Such an approach enhances nursing students learning about research and the area being studied in the actual research project.
