Abstract [sv]

Syftet med litteratur studien var att beskriva vilka studier som har gjorts med fokus på ”grön omsorg” /utemiljö i vården av personer med demens, samt att beskriva personalens upplevelse av dessa omvårdnadsåtgärder och eventuella effekter på de boende. Litteratursökningar gjordes i databaserna Medline och Chinal, och resulterade i nio inkluderade studier. Resultatet visade att flertalet av studierna hade som syfte att studera utemiljö och boendes välbefinnande och beteende. Sex studier hade en icke-experimentell design, två studier hade en kvasiexperimentell design och en studie var uppdelad i två delar varav den ena delen hade en icke-experimentell design och den andra delen hade en kvasiexperimentell design. Studierna var publicerade under åren 1992-2006 och vanligast förekommande datainsamlingsmetod var observationer av funktionsförmåga/beteende hos de boende. Granskningen av artiklarna indikerade positiva förändringar, framförallt minskat aggressivt beteende och förbättrat välbefinnande vid vistelse i utemiljöer hos personer med demens. Personalen och närstående var i stort positivt inställda till dessa utemiljöer i omvårdnaden av personer med demens.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the review was to describe studies that have been done with focus on “green care”/exterior environment in the care of people with dementia. Another aim was to describe the staff member’s experience of these arrangements and contingent effects, on the patients. Literature search was made in Medline and Chinal databases, and resulted in nine included studies. The results indicated that a majority of these studies had outdoor environment and effects on the residents’ well being and behavior as a study purpose. Six studies had a non-experimental design, two studies had a quasi-experimental design and one study was divided into two parts of which the first part had a non-experimental design and the second part had a quasi-experimental design. The studies were published between 1992- 2006 and the most common method of collecting data was observations of functionality/behaviour of the residents. The review of the studies focusing on the exterior environment indicated positive changes in subjects with dementia. In particular a decrease of aggressive behaviour and improved well being was seen. The staff and the subjects’ relatives were all in all positive to the outdoor environments in the care of subjects with dementia.
