    Caring for stroke survivors: experiences of family caregivers in Sri Lanka – a qualitative study2018In: Topics in Stroke Rehabilitation, ISSN 1074-9357, E-ISSN 1945-5119, Vol. 25, no 6, p. 397-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND:

    Stroke is a life-changing event for both stroke survivors and their family caregivers. After receiving acute care at the hospital, family members are expected to take care of stroke survivors at home and to continue treatment and rehabilitation. The new role of "informal caregiver" is a challenge that creates many difficulties for family caregivers that are not explicit in the Sri Lankan context.

    OBJECTIVES:

    This study aimed at exploring family caregivers' experiences of providing informal care for dependent stroke survivors.

    METHODS:

    The sample was chosen by purposive sampling with a maximum variation by age, ethnicity, religion, educational level, relationship, and monthly income. Ten informal family caregivers to stroke survivors with hemiplegia who had been treated at the National Hospital of Sri Lanka participated in in-depth interviews analyzed using conventional content analysis.

    RESULTS:

    Qualitative content analysis of data resulted in an overriding theme, "Caring with love, against all odds," along with four categories, "Life alterations," "Lack of resources," "Compassionate care," and "Coping strategies." Although the increased workload, restricted social life, physical problems, and knowledge and financial deficits were challenging for the family caregivers, self-strength and supportive social networks helped them to compassionately care for their stroke survivor.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    The phenomenon of family caregivers providing informal care for stroke survivors was explicated as compassionate care, notwithstanding numerous difficulties. The findings motivate further research and strategies to minimize family caregivers' burden and facilitate the positive aspects of caregiving to promote the health and well-being of both stroke survivors and their families.

    Undernäring hos äldre med neurologisk sjukdom2019In: Neurologi i Sverige, ISSN 2000-8538, Vol. 2, no 19, p. 28-31Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Maten och måltiderna är viktiga delar av våra liv. Det handlar om allt från hälsa och överlevnadtill social samvaro och kulturella aktiviteter. Vid sjukdom eller plötsliga förändringari livet ställs mycket på ända som kan ha en stor inverkan på vårt ätande och därmed på vårhälsa, vilket i sin tur kan leda till undernäring. Neurologiska sjuk domar och åldrande är vanligaorsaker till undernäring. I denna artikel ger professorerna Karin Wendin och AlbertWestergren, båda vid Högskolan Kristianstad, en översiktlig beskrivning av undernäring,vad det innebär att vara drabbad och vad man kan göra för att motverka undernäring.”Både åldrandet i sigoch neurologisk sjukdombidrar till minskadaktivitet och sannoliktminskad aptit.”

    Loneliness among older people living in care homes in Sri Lanka2019In: International Journal of Older People Nursing, ISSN 1748-3735, E-ISSN 1748-3743, Vol. 14, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore loneliness in older people (aged 65+) living in care homes in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

    BACKGROUND: Loneliness, defined as the subjective, unwelcome feeling of the lack or loss of companionship, is known to be associated with old age, especially among older people living in care homes. Although several studies have shown that loneliness is highly prevalent, we lack knowledge about older people's personal experience of loneliness when residing in a care home and the strategies that older people use by themselves on a day-to-day basis to alleviate loneliness.

    METHODS: The participants (n = 75) were randomly selected from three different types of care homes: governmental, non-governmental and private, and loneliness was screened using the Revised University of California-Los Angeles (R-UCLA) Loneliness Scale. The 15 participants with the highest score on the loneliness scale were purposively selected for individual interviews.

    RESULTS: The median loneliness score was 45 (range 20-80); no significant differences concerning loneliness were found between the care homes. No differences concerning loneliness were found for any demographic variable except marital status. Loneliness was experienced as coping with inner pain, which older people described as emotional suffering caused by feeling abandoned from the family network and fettered to the care home, anxious about their future and depressed. Participants managed their loneliness by accepting their loneliness, practising religion, staying in touch with family, engaging in daily activities and participating in social activities.

    CONCLUSION: Reliable and socio-culturally validated tools for screening loneliness and culturally applicable interventions targeting factors associated with loneliness are necessary in the care of older people residing in care homes. A person-centred approach involving family or significant others is recommended in clinical practice, and an increase in the number of nurses with specialist education in geriatric nursing seems urgent.

    BHV-sjuksköterskans erfarenhet av att ge stöd gällande amning vid första hembesöket2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Att amma är förenat med betydande hälsovinster för både barn och mor ändå ses amningsfrekvensen sjunka i världen. För att lyckas med amning behöver familjen mycket stöd i ett tidigt skede efter hemkomsten från BB. Vid bristande stöd ses amningen avslutas tidigare än planerat. Tidigare studier har visat att många mödrar upplever bristande stöd relaterat till skiftande kunskaper hos BHV-sjuksköterskorna. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva BHV-sjuksköterskors erfarenhet av att ge stöd till nyblivna mödrar gällande amning vid första hembesöket från barnhälsovården. Metod: En kvalitativ studie genomfördes med 16 semistrukturerade intervjuer. Både distriktsjuksköterskor och barnsjuksköterskor som arbetar i barnhälsovården deltog. Utifrån en kvalitativ innehållsanalys analyserades intervjuerna. Resultat: I resultatet framträdde ett övergripande tema: Att ett holistiskt förhållningssätt i mötet med mödrarna ger möjlighet att utforma ett individuellt stöd. Kategorierna som framträdde var skapa relationer, underlätta vid svårigheter samt förmedla trygghet utifrån kompetens. Slutsats: Resultatet i denna studie visar att för att BHV-sjuksköterskorna ska kunna känna sig trygga i sitt amningsstöd framkom tre viktiga aspekter: det första hembesöket, samarbetet mellan de olika instanserna som familjerna möter i samband med att bli föräldrar och tid för BHV-sjuksköterskor att utbyta erfarenheter med varandra. Studien visar också att attityder gällande amning i samhället påverkar BHV-sjuksköterskornas erfarenheter av att ge stöd vid amning.
