Purpose

This study aimed not only to describe the development and implementation of the module but also to evaluate the nursing students' perceptions.

Design and Methods

A cross-sectional design including 101 students who were asked to participate and answer a survey. We describe the development of the pedagogic module Students Active Learning via Internet Observations based on situated learning.

Findings

The findings show that learning about service users' own lived experiences via web-based platforms was instructive according to the students: 81% agreed to a high or very high degree. Another important finding was that 96% of students responded that the module had clinical relevance for nursing work.

Practice Implications

We argue that learning that engages students with data that are contextually and culturally situated is important for developing competence in caregiving.

Abstract [en]

Background: Studies from various cultures show that a large number of adolescent girls have a wish to be thinner, and thus more often go on diets. The purpose of this longitudinal study was to examine if a wish to be thinner among Swedish girls contributes to the development of disturbed eating, and to describe motives for wishing to be thinner.

Methods: Following ethical approval (reg. no: 258/94; 2014/401) the Demographic and Dieting Questionnaire and the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire were used in a general population cohort of 7-11year-old-girls (n=462), 20 years later in October 2015.Threshold for DE was 1 SD above general population mean. Chi-square tests providing OR were used.

Results: A wish to be thinner during adolescence increases the likelihood 3-5 times to develop disturbed eating during the following 20-year period. Self-described motives for the wish to be thinner was to “correspond to the societal ideal” and to “dealing with difficulties”.

Conclusions: For prevention, it is of importance to detect girls who wish to be thinner as early as possible. By considering the girls’ motives, preventive efforts might be perceived as more meaningful and relevant to the girls at risk of developing eating disorders.

Abstract [en]

There is a lack of research exploring emotional commitment to work in relation to eating attitudes. Since eating disorders are associated with adverse psychological and social consequences, work engagement could be affected. The purpose was to compare work engagement among women with and without disturbed eating (DE).

A cross-sectional survey using the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale and the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire in a general population cohort of 26-36-year-old women (n=847). Threshold for DE was 1 SD above general population mean. Independent t-test was used to compare work engagement. Ethical approval (reg no:2014/401)

The level of work engagement was lower (p=0.02) among women with DE (mean 3.69 +-1.43) than women without DE (mean 4.06 +-1.18). The score for dedication was also lower (p=0.02) within the DE group (mean 3.74+-1.57 vs 4.22 +-1.26). However, vigour and absorption were not different.

The work engagement in the cohort was within the average range although women with DE had significantly lower emotional commitment to work. As work engagement is linked to business success, workplace growth and sustainability it seems important to explore tailored strategies to improve work engagement among women with DE.
