    Smärta: en studie genomförd med hjälp från studenter i sjuksköterskeprogrammet2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka förekomst och grad av smärta hos vårdtagare och att jämföra två metoder för skattning av smärta, verbal skattning av smärta samt skattning med hjälp av VAS (Visuell Analog Skala). Vidare är syftet att sjuksköterskestudenterna ska få träna sig med hjälp av olika bedömningsinstrument identifiera problem med smärta samt reflektera över Metod: Sjuksköterskestudenter från första och sista året i utbildningen genomförde skattningar på vårdtagare vid den praktikplats där de genomförde sin verksamhetsförlagda utbildning (VFU) på sjukhus eller i särskilda boenden (SB, här även inkluderat avancerad sjukvård i hemmet (ASIH)). Vårdtagare gav sitt informerade samtycke till att medverka i studien som genomfördes under en dag. Vårdtagarna fick skatta sin smärta med verbal skattning samt med VAS. Totalt ingick 1769 vårdtagare i studien varav 1432 var på sjukhus och 1337 i SB/ASIH. På sjukhus var 54.3% kvinnor och 45.7% män, inom SB/ASIH var fördelningen 63.8% respektive 35.9%.

    Resultat: På sjukhus upplevde 48.4% av respondenterna sin grad av sjukdom som "svår" respektive 30.1% vid SB/ASIH. Vid sjukhus angav 27.8% någon form av smärta när den "var som värst", respektive 31.8% vid SB/ASIH. När smärtan "var som minst" var det 39.9% vid sjukhus som uppgav "ingen smärta" och inom SB/ASIH var det 43.1%. Vad gäller smärta "i genomsnitt" var det 22.1% som uppgav "ingen smärta" vid sjukhus, och 22.3% vid SB/ASIH.

    Slutsats: Smärta var väldigt vanligt både på sjukhus och i SB/ASIH.

    Sömnsvårigheter inom vård och omsorg: en studie genomförd med hjälp av studenter i sjuksköterskeprogrammet2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka förekomsten av sömnsvårigheter bland personer på sjukhus, särskilt boende samt inom hemsjukvård/kvalificerad vård i hemmet (KVH), samt att jämföra sömnen hemma och på sjukhus för de personer som befann sig på sjukhus. Vidare var syftet att högskolestudenter inom sjuksköterskeprogrammet skulle få träning i kritiskt tänkande, reflektion och  att  introducera  evidensbaserade  verktyg/instrument  för  att  underlätta  beslut  rörande patientsäkerhet.

    Metod:  Datainsamlingen  utfördes  av  sjuksköterskestudenter  i  kurs  6  och  16  under  deras verksamhetsförlagda utbildning på sjukhus, särskilt boende, hemsjukvård och KVH, 2011. Även kliniska adjunkter/kliniska lärare och personal i verksamheterna medverkade till genomförandet. Studenterna fick genom datainsamlingen träning i att ge information till personal och patient/ vårdtagare, sammanställa resultat från enheten/avdelningen, samt att återrapportera och reflektera över resultaten. Screening avseende störd nattsömn (insomni) och dagsömnighet gjordes baserat på bedömninsinstrumenten The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Minimal Insomnia Symptom Scale (MISS), Scales for Outcomes in PArkinson’s disease – Sleep (SCOPA-Sleep), Parkinson’s Disease Questionnaire-39 (PDQ-39) och Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS). Varje sjuksköterskestudent tillfrågade cirka fyra patienter/vårdtagare om att medverka i studien.

    Resultat: De på sjukhus och inom hemsjukvård/KVH sover i snitt färre timmar per natt jämfört med de på särskilt boende. Det vanligaste sömnproblemet för alla tre grupper var att vakna under natten och insomni var vanligare på sjukhus och inom hemsjukvård/KVH än på särskilt boende. Det vanligaste problemet under dag- och kvällstid för de på sjukhus och inom hemsjukvård/KVH var att somna under tiden när man tittat på TV eller läst. För de på särskilt boende var det vanligaste problemet att plötsligt somna under dag- eller kvällstid. Vid jämförelse av sömntimmar per natt hemma och på sjukhus bland de deltagare som befann sig på sjukhus skiljde sig sömntimmarna inte markant åt. En något större andel bedömde sin sömnkvalitet som ganska dålig eller mycket dålig under sjukhusvistelsen i jämförelse med sömnkvaliteten hemma. Även insomni var något vanligare att uppleva på sjukhus än hemma. Merparten av deltagarna använde ungefär lika mycket eller mer sömntabletter på sjukhuset än hemma. Majoriteten av medverkande studenter ansåg sig ha fått en bättre vetenskaplig förståelse efter genomförd studie, med en särskilt stor andel hos kurs 16 studenterna. En något större andel avkurs 6 studenterna ansåg sig ha ökat sina kunskaper om sömnvanor/sömnproblem i jämförelsemed kurs 16 studenterna. Åtgärder för att underlätta sömnen hos patienter/vårdtagare som föreslogs utav studenterna fokuserade på personalens bemötande, dokumentation och utvärdering samt miljö och hjälpmedel. Majoriteten av studenterna var positiva till genomförandet av studien, samt upplevde att även patienter och vårdtagare förhöll sig positiva till studien. Det var många som däremot kritiserade att frågorna i frågeformuläret var snarlika och att det saknas frågor om vad eventuella sömnsvårigheter berodde på.

    Konklusion: Sjukhusvistelse var delvis associerad med negativ påverkan på sömnen. Generellt rapporterar äldre personer på särskilt boende att de sover ganska bra. Att vara delaktiga i FUSS-projekt bidrar till en bättre vetenskaplig förståelse hos flertalet sjuksköterskestudenter.

    Malnutrition and risk of falling among elderly without home-help service: a cross sectional study2014In: The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging, ISSN 1279-7707, E-ISSN 1760-4788, Vol. 18, no 10, p. 905-911Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives

    The aim of this study was to explore the frequency of malnutrition risk and associated risk of falling, social and mental factors among elderly without home-help service. The aim was also to explore factors associated with risk of falling.

    Design

    A cross-sectional design was used.

    Setting

    Elderly persons own homes.

    Participants

    Data were collected during preventive home visits to 565 elderly (age range 73–90 years) without home-help service. Those with complete SCREEN II forms were included in the study (n=465).

    Measurements

    Measurements included rating scales regarding malnutrition risk (SCREEN II) and risk of falling (Downton). In addition, single-items: general health, satisfaction with life, tiredness, low-spiritedness, worries/anxiety and sleeping were used.

    Results

    According to the SCREEN II, 35% of the sample had no malnutrition risk, 35% had moderate risk and 30% had high malnutrition risk. In an ordinal regression analysis, increased malnutrition risk was associated with being a woman living alone (OR 4.63), male living alone (OR 6.23), lower age (OR 0.86), poorer general health (OR 2.03–5.01), often/always feeling tired (OR 2.38), and an increased risk of falling (OR 1.21). In a linear regression analysis, risk of falling was associated with higher age (B 0.020), not shopping independently (B 0.162), and low meat consumption (B 0.138).

    Conclusion

    There are complex associations between malnutrition risk and the gender-cohabitation interaction, age, general health, tiredness, and risk of falling. In clinical practice comprehensive assessments to identify those at risk of malnutrition including associated factors are needed. These have to be followed by individual nutritional interventions using a holistic perspective which may also contribute to reducing the risk of falling.

    Conceptual relationships between the ICF and experiences of mealtimes and related tasks among persons with Parkinson’s disease2016In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 36, no 4, p. 201-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to investigate experiences of mealtimes and related tasks among people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and to link these conceptually to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Data were collected by use of semi-structured interviews of 19 people with PD. Inductive content analysis resulted in five categories: 1) Managing mealtime preparations and related tasks, 2) Compromised physical control, 3) Difficulties enjoying meals, 4) Difficulties eating together with others, and 5) Strategies to maintain conventional norms and independence. Deductive content analysis linked the categories to the ICF categories: body functions (mental, sensory, neuromusculoskeletal and movement-related functions); activities (self-determination and chores); participation (interpersonal interactions and relationships); and environmental factors (conventional norms, attitudes of friends and strangers). Emotional and involuntary movement functions were represented in all five inductively derived categories. Eating difficulties may have negative consequences on participation and the emotional wellbeing of people with Parkinson’s disease.

    Användarvänlighet för Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form (MEONF-ll): en pilotstudie genomförd med hjälp av studenter på sjuksköterskeprogrammet2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to make a screening of risk for malnutrition among persons in hospitals and among those living in special accommondation (long-term care).

    Method: Nurse student collected the data during their clinical education at hospitals and in the special accommodations in 2010. Staff and clinical teachers participated also with the data collection. By participating in the study the students got training in how to provide information to the staff and patients/residents, collect data, and compile results ant to give feed-back about the findings to the department. The screening of risk for malnutrition was done using Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition (MEONF) and Active Daily Life (ADL). Each student asked three patients/residents to participate, in the study.

    Results: A total of 266 patients/residents who received ADL-status assessed. 45% of respondents were next independent/dependent on the help of more than 2 ADL-functions, 26% were partially dependent on help in 3-4 ADL-functions and 25% were almost completely dependent on help in 5-6 ADL-functions. The results (Table 2) show that the respondents has no/low risk of malnutrition, they were almost completely independent/dependent in aid. In the case of those respondents with a high risk for portable so it was no more (39%) witch was almost entirely dependent on aid. The majority of students believe that assessment-manual were easy to understand, that the proposed measurement were easy and relevant regardless of which group the patients/residents belonged.

    Conclusion: The patients/residents who had high risk for malnutrition had even greater need of help. One group that must not be overlooked is the patients/residents who are obese but still high risk of malnutrition. Assessment instruments seem to be useful and easy to use. For the students perceived it as positive to participate in actual research projects.

    A Swedish version of the SCREEN II for malnutrition assessment among community-dwelling elderly2015In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1403-4948, E-ISSN 1651-1905, Vol. 43, no 6, p. 667-71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The Seniors in the Community: Risk Evaluation for Eating and Nutrition II (SCREEN II) Questionnaire assesses nutritional risk among elderly people living at home. Our aim was to produce a Swedish language version of the SCREEN II and to examine response patterns, data completeness and the relationship between malnutrition and general health.

    METHODS: The SCREEN II was translated into Swedish using dual panel methodology, and then followed up with field test interviews of 24 seniors (median age, 83 years). We used the survey data (n = 565) to assess item and score distribution, missing responses, and the relationship to the subject's general and nutritional health.

    RESULTS: The Swedish SCREEN II was considered easy to understand, respond to, and relevant (n = 21; 88% of subjects found it so in all three respects) and its median completion time was 5 minutes. The level of survey item data completeness was 94-99%, and 82% of surveys had computable total scores. Of those subjects with completed forms, 35% had no nutritional risk; 35% had moderate risk; and 30% were at high risk. The malnutrition risk increased with poorer perceived health.

    CONCLUSIONS: Our study results are similar to those using previous SCREEN II versions, indicating that the scale adaptation was successful and providing initial support for use of the Swedish SCREEN II questionnaire.

    Diagnostic performance of the Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form – Version II (MEONF-II) and Nutritional Risk Screening 2002 (NRS 2002) among hospital inpatients – a cross-sectional study2011In: BMC Nursing, ISSN 1472-6955, E-ISSN 1472-6955, Vol. 10, p. 24-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The usefulness of the nutritional screening tool Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form – Version II (MEONF-II) relative to Nutritional Risk Screening 2002 (NRS 2002) remains untested. Here we attempted to fill this gap by testing the diagnostic performance and user-friendliness of the MEONF-II and the NRS 2002 in relation to the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) among hospital inpatients. Methods: Eighty seven hospital inpatients were assessed for nutritional status with the 18- item MNA (considered as the gold standard), and screened with the NRS 2002 and the MEONF-II. Results: The MEONF-II sensitivity (0.61), specificity (0.79), and accuracy (0.68) were acceptable. The corresponding figures for NRS 2002 were 0.37, 0.82 and 0.55, respectively. MEONF-II and NRS 2002 took five minutes each to complete. Assessors considered MEONF-II instructions and items to be easy to understand and complete (96- 99%), and the items to be relevant (87%). For NRS 2002, the corresponding figures were 75-93% and 79%, respectively. Conclusions: The MEONF-II is an easy to use, relatively quick and sensitive screening tool to assess risk of undernutrition among hospital inpatients. With respect to user-friendliness and sensitivity the MEONF-II seems to perform better than the NRS 2002, although larger studies are needed for firm conclusions. The different scoring systems for undernutrition appear to identify overlapping but not identical patient groups. A potential limitation with the study is that the MNA was used as gold standard among patients younger than 65 years.

    Cut-off scores for the Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form – Version II (MEONF-II) among hospital inpatients2011In: Journal of Food and Nutrition Research, ISSN 1336-8672, E-ISSN 1338-4260, Vol. 55, p. 7289-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:

    The newly developed Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form - Version II (MEONF-II) has shown promising sensitivity and specificity in relation to the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA). However, the suggested MEONF-II cut-off scores for deciding low/moderate and high risk for undernutrition (UN) (>2 and >4, respectively) have not been decided based on statistical criteria but on clinical reasoning. The objective of this study was to identify the optimal cut-off scores for the MEONF-II in relation to the well-established MNA based on statistical criteria.

    DESIGN:

    Cross-sectional study.

    METHODS:

    The study included 187 patients (mean age, 77.5 years) assessed for nutritional status with the MNA (full version), and screened with the MEONF-II. The MEONF-II includes assessments of involuntary weight loss, Body Mass Index (BMI) (or calf circumference), eating difficulties, and presence of clinical signs ofUN. MEONF-II data were analysed by Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curves and the area under the curve (AUC); optimal cut-offs were identified by the Youden index (J=sensitivity+specificity-1).

    RESULTS:

    According to the MEONF-II, 41% were at moderate or high UN risk and according to the MNA, 50% were at risk or already undernourished. The suggested cut-off scores were supported by the Youden indices. The lower cut-off for MEONF-II, used to identify any level of risk for UN (>2; J=0.52) gave an overall accuracy of 76% and the AUC was 80%. The higher cut-off for identifying those with high risk for UN (>4; J=0.33) had an accuracy of 63% and the AUC was 70%.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    The suggested MEONF-II cut-off scores were statistically supported. This improves the confidence of its clinical use.

    Inter- and intrarater reliability of Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition Form - version II (MEONF-II) nurse assessments among hospital inpatients2014In: BMC Nursing, ISSN 1472-6955, E-ISSN 1472-6955, Vol. 13, p. 18-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition form - version II (MEONF - II) is a recently developed nursing nutritional screening tool. However, its inter- and intrarater reliability has not been assessed.

    METHODS: Inpatients (n = 24; median age, 69 years; 11 women) were assessed by eight nurses (interrater reliability, two nurses scored each patient independently) using the MEONF-II on two consecutive days (intrarater reliability, each patient was scored by the same nurse day 1 and day 2).

    RESULTS: Six patients were at moderate/high undernutrition risk. Inter- and intrarater reliabilities (Gwet's agreement coefficient) for the MEONF-II 2-category classification (no/low risk versus moderate/high risk) were 0.93 and 0.81; for the 3-category classification (no/low - moderate - high risk) reliabilities (Gwet's weighted agreement coefficient) were 0.98 and 0.88; and total score inter- and intrarater reliabilities (intraclass correlation) were 0.92 and 0.84.

    CONCLUSION: Reliability of MEONF-II nurse assessments among adult hospital inpatients was supported and the tool can be used in research and clinical practice.

    Malnutrition and nutritional care in an Icelandic teaching hospital2014In: Research, ISSN 2334-1009, no 1, p. 1270-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: About 30% of hospital inpatients are at undernutrition (UN) risk and it is important that sufficient nutritional treatment and care is provided in order to avoid a decline in health. Aim: To explore the prevalence of UN risk, the associations between UN-risk and other factors, and describe the nutritional treatment/care towards those at UN-risk at an Icelandic teaching hospital. An additional aim was to evaluate the user friendliness of a nutritional screening tool. Methods: Inpatients (n=56; median age 69 years; 29 women) were assessed by eight nurses using the Minimal Eating Observation and Nutrition form – version II (MEONF-II), a recently developed nursing nutritional screening tool. Results: In total 23% (n=13) were at moderate/high UN-risk. The prevalence of overweight/obesity was 57%. Among patients at UN-risk, 61% received energy dense food, oral nutritional supplements, and/or artificial nutrition; this figure was 35% among those at no/low risk. MEONF-II total scores correlated with dependency in activities of daily living (rs, 0.350), and UN-risk categories correlated with tiredness (rs, 0.426). The MEONF-II was regarded as easy to use and relevant. Conclusion: There is a need for interventions connecting the nutritional screening with individualised nutritional treatment and care in order to narrow the gap between screening and intervention. The Icelandic version of the MEONF-II is perceived as user-friendly.

    Malnutrition prevalence and precision in nutritional care: an intervention study in one teaching hospital in Iceland2010In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 19, no 13-14, p. 1830-1837Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim. The aim of this study was to explore the point prevalence of malnutrition and the targeting of nutritional interventions in relation to undernutrition risk before and after an intervention. Background. Malnutrition risk and the precision in targeting nutritional treatment are indicators of quality of care. Knowledge regarding the in-hospital prevalence of malnutrition and nutritional treatment is meagre for Iceland. Design. Pre- and postintervention study. Methods. The study was performed during one day in 2006 (March) and one day in 2007 (April). In total, 95 (89%) and 92 (88%) patients agreed to participate. Moderate/high undernutrition risk was defined as the occurrence of at least two of the following: involuntary weight loss, body mass index below limit and eating difficulties according to Minimal Eating Observation Form - Version II. Being overweight was graded based on body mass index. Specific nutritional care actions were recorded. Intervention: A five-point programme for nutrition and eating was implemented. Results. Moderate/high risk for undernutrition was found in 25 and 17% in the two years (ns, not significant). A high body mass index was found in 53 and 54% (ns). The number of patients with a documented body mass index significantly increased between the two surveys (1 and 30%, p-value < 0 center dot 0005). The use of oral supplements increased from 11-40% (p < 0 center dot 0005) and especially among those at no/low undernutrition risk, with ingestion or deglutition difficulties (p < 0 center dot 0005 in both cases) but not among those with appetite and energy problems (ns). Conclusion. Implementing a nutritional programme does not necessarily affect the number of in-patients with malnutrition, but it is likely to increase the precision of nutritional care to some extent. Relevance to clinical practice. Greater efforts need to be taken to increase the precision of nutritional care among patients at moderate/high undernutrition risk and among those with appetite and energy problems.

    Supporting patients with body dissatisfaction: a survey of the experiences and training needs of european multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals2018In: NursingPlus Open, ISSN 2352-9008, Vol. 4, p. 8-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Appearance-related concerns resulting from disfigurement or pressure to conform to beauty ideals, indiscriminately affect patients’ mental and physical health. Healthcare professionals face the challenge of addressing patients’ support needs. Therefore a European University Consortium developed a course to address learning needs. Prior to its design, a study with multi-disciplinary European healthcare professionals was conducted to maximize its relevance and acceptability. Healthcare professionals (n = 718; 48% nurses, 30% doctors, 22% allied health professionals) were surveyed regarding the nature and impact of patients’ appearance concerns, confidence in key areas associated with detecting/addressing concerns, and training/educational needs. Participants reported that this subject is highly relevant and 70% described the psychosocial impact of appearance concerns across the lifespan resulting from disfiguring conditions, disability, neurological disease, ageing and weight/shape dissatisfaction. Participants, irrespective of their experience, self-reported inadequate knowledge regarding appearance-specific care, 87% requested further information and 70% wanted access to an accredited course; barriers deterring participation in training were identified. Healthcare professionals across multiple specialties are caring for patients with a wide-range of appearance concerns that impact on physical and mental health and want to increase their appearance-specific knowledge and expertise. Results have informed training/courses which have the potential to improve patient care and ameliorate health-related outcomes.

    Nurse assistant’s perceptions of physical activity and exercise among older people: a phenomenography study2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Nurse assistant has as first-line caregivers in care of older people, a unique opportunity to encourage physical activity and exercise in older people. Hence,the staff’s perceptions about physical activity and exercise among older persons are essential. The aim of this study was to describe how nurse assistants in their work perceived physical activity and exercise for older people over 65 receiving home care and home help services. Method: Data were collected through interviews with 19 nurse assistants selected by strategic sampling and analysed using a phenomenographic approach. Results: The findings show two different perceptions of physical activity: “physical activity is to move “as everyday movements that older people did in activities of daily living andoutdoors activities and “physical activity is to make an effort” which older people makes handling their daily living and outdoors activities or struggling to be less inactive with healthy activities. Three differen tperceptions of exercise emerged: “exercise as physical activity” as movements that could be done either through an individual exercise programs from physiotherapist or by activities of daily life such as dressing, cleaning or shopping; “exercise as rehabilitation” as part of the rehabilitation processor as a prescription to follow and “exercise as an agent” enhancing health and well being of older people principally related to the mobility or enhancing older people’s social activities. Conclusion: By describing nurse assistants perceptions of physical activity and exercise among older people, this study provides information about two different approaches used by nurse assistants inhome help services. Nurse assistants have two different approaches towards the older person: a health promoting approach and a preventive approach. An educational awareness about the different approaches could enable staff to engage and support the older person to be physically active and to exercise regularly. A supportive organisation with flexibility and a closely collaboration between social services and health professionals could facilitate and strengthening a health promoting and a preventive approach by nurse assistant.
