Abstract [sv]

För många migranter från utomeuropeiska länder tar det lång tid att etablera sig i Sverige. Det gäller i synnerhet personer med låg utbildning, och särskilt kvinnor som saknar erfarenhet av lönearbete i hemlandet. Denna rapport handlar om migranter i Gävleborgs län, som fått asyl i Sverige, avslutat etableringsperioden och stod utanför den reguljära arbetsmarknaden år 2020. Under 2020 genomfördes intervjuer med 23 personer i tre kommuner som gick på SFI. Knappt tre år senare (2023) kontaktade vi deltagarna igen för att ta reda på om de kommit närmare arbetsmarknadsetablering och hur de såg på sin livssituation och framtid. Vi fick kontakt med 13 personer varav 8 medverkade i en ny intervju. För att öka förståelsen för migranternas perspektiv har vi dessutom intervjuat 10 personer från andra kommuner med liknande bakgrund och livssituation som de ursprungliga deltagarna. Resultaten visar att nästan alla respondenter hade kommit närmare arbetsmarknaden och såg ljusare på tillvaron än under 2020. Samtliga hade kommit ut på arbetsplatser genom praktik och anställningar, och många hade gått eller gick på yrkesutbildningar. Att behärska svenska språket upplevdes centralt. Det betraktades som nyckeln till att kunna få ett arbete, samtidigt som arbetet sågs som det bästa sättet att utveckla språket. Det förefaller vara ganska stora skillnader mellan vilket stöd migranter i olika kommuner får. Migranterna uttryckte också stora variationer avseende behov av stöd, vilka hinder de mötte, och i vilken utsträckning de kunde styra sin tillvaro och bestämma en väg framåt. Alla var motiverade till att arbeta och skapa en bättre framtid för sig och sina barn, men det var tydligt att myndigheterna behöver anpassa sina insatser till varje persons individuella förutsättningar för att kunna realisera detta.

Abstract [en]

In the wake of welfare sector reforms and the increasing marketisation of eldercare services, nursing home first-line managers (FLMs) are confronted with escalating work demands within streamlined organisations. Given this background, the aim was to investigate FLMs’ perceptions of their psychosocial work environment and of differences between nursing home ownership types. Nineteen managers from three Swedish municipalities from municipal, outsourced, and private nursing homes participated in semi-structured interviews focused on job demands, job resources, and ownership differences. The FLMs’ perceptions were interpreted as forming two themes. Navigating challenges: striving to cope with demands highlighted various challenges, including recruitment, workload, and lack of organisational support. Key stressors encompassed personnel struggles, time constraints, and complex interactions. Influence of ownership dynamics on the work environment explored variation across ownership types. Private nursing home managers enjoyed more decision-making autonomy but faced more scrutiny than did municipal ones. FLMs in outsourced homes described unique stressors, notably uncertainty and increased workload due to the procurement process. These findings underscore the potential need for tailored systemic changes across different ownership types. The policy implications include enhancing communication and support in municipal homes, reducing the span of control in private homes, and revising the procurement process in outsourced homes. These insights suggest that further research outlining differences between ownership types, particularly private and outsourced nursing homes, is warranted. Such research could aid in formulating specific strategies tailored to each ownership type in order to enhance the psychosocial work environment for FLMs in nursing homes.

Abstract [en]

People with dementia (PWD) are fragile and need aid and care in their daily lives. This scoping review explores the extent to which PWD can be involved in society and their daily lives. Publications were selected according to PRISMA guidelines. We graded the level of participation/involvement in daily life and research using a five-level participation model developed by Shier. A higher grade means a greater ambition to involve PWD in decisions. Of the 11 included studies, three reached level three according to Shier’s model. The studies describe ways of and potentials for participation, capabilities of PWD, caregivers’ opportunities to foster involvement, and cooperation between PWD caregivers and relatives. Caregivers and managers must have the attitude that PWD can be involved in decisions and caregivers need opportunities to actively promote such involvement. Shier’s model can be a tool with which organizations strive to involve PWD.

Abstract [en]

Public sector reforms have expanded the number of subcontracted nursing homes in Europe. In Sweden, municipalities contract out nursing homes to various providers through procurement documents, while simultaneously striving for equality in care. This has placed increasing demands on caregivers, in hope of improving care recipients' empowerment and well-being. Consequently, this study has two aims: first, to investigate the prerequisites for empowering care recipients and caregivers in Swedish nursing homes, as expressed in procurement documents; second, to compare procurement documents between municipalities, to determine whether they are (dis)similar based on the objective of care equality. In total, we collected 7 procurement documents, with attachments, from three Swedish municipalities, from 2015 to 2020. Deductive content analysis, based on empowerment theory regarding care recipients and caregivers, was used to analyse the documents. The results indicated an emphasis on empowering the care recipients. The procurement documents placed multiple demands on the caregivers but barely touched on staff empowerment. The municipalities differed in how the providers competed to win the procurement. The result highlights a problematic aspect of the marketisation of nursing homes, namely combining the objective of equality with competition between providers.

Abstract [en]

This systematic review investigated the psychosocial work environment and well-being of direct-care staff under different nursing home ownership types. Databases searched: Scopus, Web of Science, Cinahl, and PubMed, 1990–2020. Inclusion criteria: quantitative or mixed-method studies; population: direct-care staff in nursing homes; exposure: for-profit and non-profit ownership; and outcomes: psychosocial work environment and well-being. In total, 3896 articles were screened and 17(n = 12,843 participants) were assessed using the Joanna Briggs Institute Critical Appraisal tools and included in the narrative synthesis. The results were inconsistent, but findings favored non-profit over for-profit settings, for example, regarding leaving intentions, organizational commitment, and stress-related outcomes. There were no clear differences concerning job satisfaction. Job demands were higher in non-profit nursing homes but alleviated by better job resources in one study. The result highlights work environment issues, with regulations concerning for-profit incentives being discussed in terms of staff benefits.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to explore interprofessional learning among students from nursing, education, and social work programmes in Sweden. Four or five students from each programme participated in focus group interviews. Students were asked in homogenous and mixed groups to judge a fictitious case of a young schoolboy with multiple needs. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analysed with content analysis. We found that nursing students focused on nutrition and physi-cal well-being, education students on grades and course, and social work students on context, collaboration, and coordinating activities. Students in the mixed groups described the concept of interprofessional learning as opening their eyes to the need for later collaboration as professionals. To conclude, the study shows that students adopt a narrow professional way of thinking when socialized only within their own discipline as illu-strated by the theme: Body, Grade, Relation, with a risk of not taking full responsibility in a complex case such as a child in need. When exposed to other professions, students expand their perspectives and learn from each other to the benefit of their mutual clients.

Abstract [sv]

Personer med låga inkomster söker ekonomisk hjälp via Facebook och andra sociala medier. Vad avser biståndet som efterfrågas och vilka individer söker hjälp? 30 ansökningar hos organisationen Giving People som granskades visade att det är barnfamiljer som söker hjälp till basala behov som mat och kläder. Denna hjälp sätts i relation till hjälp som ges från Sveriges Stadsmissioner och till socialtjänstens försörjningsstöd. Hjälpen från Giving People är snabb samtidigt som organisationen medvetet kringgår socialtjänstens krav på redovisning av inkomster. Den hjälpsökande individen får ett litet extra tillskott samtidigt som det finns en risk att fattigdomen i samhället inte uppmärksammas tillräckligt. Sveriges Stadsmissioner och socialtjänsten erbjuder professionella personliga möten till skillnad från Giving People. Detta kan vara viktigt eftersom ekonomiska svårigheter ofta är en markör för andra sociala problem

Abstract [en]

People with low incomes seek financial support via Facebook and other social media. For what is the assistance requested and which individuals seek help? 30 applications from Giving People showed that families with children seek help for basic needs such as food and clothing. This help is compared to help given from the charity organization Sveriges Stadsmissioner and to financial assistance from the social services. The help from Giving People is fast and the organization deliberately circumvents the social services’ requirements for reporting income. The help-seeking individual receives a small supplement but with a risk that poverty in society will not receive enough attention. Sveriges Stadsmissioner and the social services offer professional personal meetings, unlike Giving People. This can be important because financial difficulties are often a marker for other social problems.
