    Income and education as predictors of stroke mortality after the survival of a first stroke2012In: Stroke Research and Treatment, ISSN 2090-8105, E-ISSN 2042-0056, article id 983145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. It is well known that socioeconomic indicators, such as income and education, predict both stroke incidence and stroke mortality. This means that persons in lower socioeconomic positions are less likely to survive their stroke, and there will be a selective survival in the group discharged from hospital after their first stroke. Question. Does socioeconomic position continue to predict mortality, stroke specific, or from other causes, among patients surviving their first stroke in spite of this selective survival? Methods. All persons in Sweden aged 40–59 years who were discharged after a first hospitalization for stroke in 1996–2000 were included (n = 10,487), then followed up until the end of the fourth calendar year after discharge. Data were analysed with Cox regressions controlling for age, sex, and stroke type. Results. Persons with high socioeconomic position, measured by education and income, have lower mortality than those of low position. Education was not significant when adjusted for income, however. The risk of dying was similar for stroke-specific mortality and all-cause mortality, for those with cerebral infarction as well as for all patients. Conclusions. Socioeconomic position predicted stroke-specific mortality also in the selective group of persons who survived their first stroke.

    När hjälpen finns på Facebook: Om försummade behov och nya hjälpformer2022In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 99, no 4, p. 509-521Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    People With Dementia as Active Agents in Nursing Homes: A Scoping Review2023In: SAGE Open, E-ISSN 2158-2440, Vol. 13, no 2Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    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.

    A retrospective on care and denial of children with disabilities in Russia2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 229-248Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In tsarist Russia, disability care was little developed, yet showed certain similarities with other European countries. Disabled children received support through charities and private philanthropy. The October revolution of 1917 proclaimed a better future for all the country's citizens. Issues: How did the disability policy discussion change after the Russian revolution? Who took care of the so-called feeble-minded? What did this care consist of? Methodology: Study of political and scientific documentation of the period from the end of the 1800s to 1936, along with reflections on the ongoing situation found in the diaries of the head of one child institution, Ekaterina Gracheva. Outcomes: 'Educable' children received schooling, while 'non-educable' children were placed in separate institutions. This marginalisation was reinforced by the focus on the productive worker. Soviet Russia developed defectology as a science and increased the use of institutional solutions.

    Krokiga vägar till etablering – upplevda hinder för arbetsmarknadsetablering av migranter under coronapandemin2021Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetsmarknadsetablering av migranter i Sverige innefattar både möjligheter till arbetskraft för arbetsgivare och meningsfull sysselsättning och försörjning för den enskilde. Denna är dock kantad av hinder i arbetsmarknadsintegration och förmåga att ta tillvara på kompetens som utvecklats utanför Sverige. Hindren är särskilt uttalade för personer som saknar gymnasieutbildning eller formell yrkesutbildning. Arbetskraftsdeltagandet är lägre för utlandsfödda än för svenskfödda, och kvinnliga flyktingar och asylinvandrare med lågutbildningsnivå står utanför arbetsmarknaden i mycket stor utsträckning. Därtill satsas mindre resurser på arbetsmarknadsintegration för kvinnor än för män, och det är även en lägre andel kvinnor med låg utbildning som väljer att delta i Arbetsförmedlingens etableringsinsatser. Föreliggande studie ingår i ett delprojekt inom Integration Gävleborg 2.0, ett forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt som drivs av Länsstyrelsen Gävleborg. Gävleborg har tagit emot ett stort antal nyanlända och regionen har generellt låg utbildningsnivå och hög arbetslöshet i jämförelse med riksgenomsnittet. Dessa aspekter gör arbetsmarknadsetablering särskilt svår för migranter med begränsad skolgång. Det har också blivit tydligt hur coronapandemin ytterligare begränsat möjligheterna till arbetsmarknadsetablering och integration.

    First-Line Managers’ Perceptions of Their Psychosocial Work Environment in Nursing Homes: A Qualitative Analysis of the Influence of Ownership Type2023In: Health & Social Care in the Community, ISSN 0966-0410, E-ISSN 1365-2524, article id 6694499Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Psychosocial Work Environment and Well-Being of Direct-Care Staff Under Different Nursing Home Ownership Types: A Systematic Review2023In: Journal of Applied Gerontology, ISSN 0733-4648, E-ISSN 1552-4523, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 347-359Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    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.

    Prerequisites for empowerment: a study of procurement documents for the provision of care in Swedish nursing homes2023In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 26, no 5, p. 853-868Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Våldsprevention genom Huskurage: Utvärdering och följeforskning av en förebyggande insats i Gävle kommun 20202021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Domestic violence is a wide-spread problem in Swedish society (Frenzel, 2014). Despite its gravity, there is a lack of knowledge regarding the usefulness of preventive methods (Jämställdhetsmyndigheten, 2019). Huskurage is a method to prevent, inhibit and discontinue men’s violence against women and domestic violence. The method is used in residential areas throughout Sweden. Important aspects of the method are to increase public awareness of domestic violence and the readiness to act on suspicions of violence in one’s vicinity. During 2020, Huskurage was implemented in three parts of Gävle city (Nordost/Norr, Gävle Strand/Alderholmen and Öster).  The work of implementing and disseminating Huskurage is done by the city of Gävle in co-operation with the housing company and some other actors. The University of Gävle conducted a research project to monitor the implementation and evaluate its impact. The purpose of the project was to examine how the implementation of Huskurage was carried out in these three parts of the city, and thereby identify successful aspects, challenges and suggestions for improvement. The project also aimed to examine changes in awareness and attitudes toward domestic violence, readiness to act on suspicion of violence toward a neighbour, and perceptions of safety in one’s residential area following the implementation of Huskurage. Another aim was to examine whether attitudes toward domestic violence and readiness to act on suspicion of violence are associated with an individual’s gender and extent of prosocialness. Qualitative interviews were conducted with individuals who worked with the implementation. A quantitative study was conducted that targeted the beliefs of the residents in the three areas. One questionnaire was sent out to all adult (18+ years) residents before the implementation of Huskurage, and a follow-up questionnaire was sent out 6 months later. Documents such as meeting minutes and email correspondence was also gathered. The results illuminate how different aspects regarding cooperation, commitment and communication can enhance work practices. The results also indicate that Huskurage can contribute to an increased readiness to act on suspicions of violence in one’s residential area. Furthermore, there are gender differences in attitudes toward domestic violence and the method Huskurage.

    Abstract [en]

    The main point of departure for international social work consists of the UN declarations on equal rights and opportunities. Important issues are globalization, global standards, universal as opposed to local contexts and the need for comparative studies. The article argues against particularism in favour of universalism and critical modernity.

    Coping strategies among low-income families in Sweden2020In: Social Work and Society, E-ISSN 1613-8953, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a global perspective, Sweden is a wealthy country with a high gross domestic product, comparatively low income inequality as measured by the Gini index, a good reputation for transparency, and low poverty rates. However, many people without an established position on the labour market benefit little from Sweden’s various forms of social insurance, since the amount of financial compensation one can receive when ill, unemployed, on parental leave, or retired relates to work requirements and previous income. This is one important reason why migrants from the Global South have low family incomes even in the Swedish welfare state and must rely on means-tested social assistance. This research considers what it means for families to live at a low economic standard, their experiences of contacts with the social services, and how they cope with low incomes. Social service clients were recruited from small and medium-sized towns in Sweden. Adults in eleven families of different origins, all long-term dependent on social assistance, were interviewed. The families’ efforts to handle their financial situation were interpreted as coping strategies. These strategies were divided into the subcategories action, adaptation, avoidance, and submission, with adaptation to social service demands being the most common strategy. Some migrant adults also expected to receive support from their own children when they grow older.

    Embedded counselling in advisory work with clients in debt2012In: Journal of Social Work Practice, ISSN 0265-0533, E-ISSN 1465-3885, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 245-258Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the potential for embedded counselling in social work with clients in debt. It is based on experiences from Sweden where budget and debt advisors employed by the municipalities give assistance to clients in financial difficulties. A distinction is made between advice and guidance on the one hand and counselling on the other. As the financial problems often have been long lasting, it is not enough with one-time advice that the client hopefully then follows. The purpose of the article, thus, is to explore the possibilities of incorporating counselling in the role of the advisor.

    Gruppbostad på entreprenad: Vad innebär upprepade byten av huvudman för vårdpersonalen?2018In: FALF KONFERENS 2018 Arbetet – problem eller potential för en hållbar livsmiljö?   10-12 juni 2018 Gävle: Program och abstracts / [ed] Per Lindberg, Gävle: Gävle University Press , 2018, p. 141-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan 1990-talet har det blivit vanligt att olika vårdverksamheter läggs ut på entreprenad. Trots det är området lite beforskat och det är oklart vad marknadisering och outsourcing innebär för vårdpersonalen. I fokus för undersökningen står en gruppbostad för personer med intellektuella funktionsnedsättningar som genom upphandlingar har bytt huvudman fem gånger under åren 1999-2015. Intervjuer har genomförts med fyra personer som arb-etat under minst fyra olika huvudmän. Därutöver har information insamlats via kommu-nala dokument och informationsintervjuer med kommunala tjänstemän. Undersökningen är en fallstudie och de frågor som ställs till vårdpersonalen rör på vilket sätt personalens arbetsinnehåll, utvecklingsmöjligheter, relation till arbetskamrater och relation till bruk-arna påverkas av upphandlingarna och därmed av byten av huvudman.

    Intervjusvaren visar att chefsbyten som kan följa av en upphandling spelar roll för vård-personalen liksom förhållanden som rör arbetstider, ersättningar vid jourtjänstgöring och möjligheten att sätta in vikarier. Studien visar att chefsrollen stegvis ändrats med åren. Från att i början av 2000-talet ha varit en person i arbetslaget med vissa ledningsuppgifter är chefen idag en person med ansvar för många boenden med begränsad närvaro på den enskilda arbetsplatsen och högst begränsat deltagande i de praktiska rutinerna med brukarna. Vid den studerade gruppbostaden tycks detta ha lett till ett ”vacuum” där per-sonal ibland sett sig övergiven med mer slitningar i personalgruppen som följd. Eftersom studien skildrar förändringar under en 16-årsperiod går det inte alltid att säga vad som är knutet till generella förändringar som t ex ökade krav på utbildad personal och vad som beror på respektive företags policy och kompetens. Men upphandlingssystemet kan bidra till att chefen byts, olika administrativa rutiner måste läggas om, anhöriga och personal måste delge information om brukarna osv varje gång byten sker, vilket kan innebära en belastning för vårdpersonalen. Förutom att detta är försummade aspekter som har betydelse för såväl personal som brukare kan det ses som en ”transaktionskostnad” som inte tas med i beräkningen när olika verksamheter upphandlas.

    Open comparisons of social services in Sweden: Why, how and for what?2017In: Cogent Social Sciences, E-ISSN 2331-1886, Vol. 3, no 1, article id 1404735Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Open Comparisons is a soft power governance method using data collected from the municipalities for benchmarking their activities. Open Comparisons in Sweden may have different national goals, such as to measure quality, policy development and democratic openness. The overall aim of this paper is to describe and analyze the use of Open Comparisons to monitor the social welfare services—social assistance, child and youth care, and treatment of alcohol and drug abuse. Four focus group interviews were carried out with professionals from eight municipalities. Results show that Open Comparisons measures the technical quality of activities by reviewing what is available, such as routines and agreements, but says little about trickle down to client level. The findings are discussed in a wider context of overall goals of Open Comparisons related to soft power governance and governmentality which includes how the social services may internalize this way of thinking.

    Return to work and wellbeing after stroke—a success story?2012In: International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (IJTR), ISSN 1354-8581, Vol. 19, no 8, p. 431-438Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Persons still in the labour force some years after a stroke generally have overcome a great range of difficulties. This study builds on the assumption that return to work and wellbeing are strongly related. Aim: To explore long-term wellbeing among individuals who have returned to work after a stroke. Method: Interviews with ten members of a stroke association aged 39-56 were recorded and transcribed. An overall picture of these responses is presented along with one illustrative case. Results: In spite of having recovered reasonably well from the stroke, several of the interviewees were struggling to stay in the labour market. An important finding was that even many years post-stroke, working life was fragile and the future uncertain for several respondents. Also, contingent on the risk of losing services-for example disability transport-there was the fear of losing independence. Conclusions: This mainly exploratory study has turned up some interesting research ideas that need to be elaborated on in future studies.

    Social work with vulnerable families and children in 11 Russian regions2009In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 201-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. The purpose of the study was to describe and analyse how key actors in the social sector in Russian regions identify problems, objectives and social work achievements in connection with vulnerable families and children.

    Methods. University personnel conducted 209 interviews using semi-structured questionnaires.

    Results. Family problems were reported to be related to poverty, parents’ alcohol abuse, the child's behaviour, the child's lack of social skills, domestic conflicts and problems getting adequate housing. The view of the majority of the respondents was that social orphanhood depends on poverty, alcohol abuse and the family's diminished role in society. Family incomes have improved but services have become more expensive. The social workers mostly put the child, not the family, in focus. Alcohol abuse was considered to be a greater problem in wealthier regions. Analyses between key groups showed that the respondents ranked problems differently, had similar ways of defining important objectives, but had divergent opinions on what social work could achieve concerning, for example, re-establishing the child's contacts with his/her biological parents.

    Conclusions. The respondents seem to be highly ambivalent toward alcohol abuse as a social problem and toward biological parents in vulnerable families. Social work in the regions is a profession in the process of formation.

    Staff Under New Market Rules: A Case Study of a Group Home for People with Intellectual Disabilities in Sweden2020In: Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare, ISSN 0191-5096, E-ISSN 1949-7652, Vol. 47, no 1, p. 97-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish caring services have transformed from a public-operatedto a market-inspired contract system. This pilot case study of a grouphome explores what the shifts of contractor entail for staff concerningwork regulation, work content and job satisfaction, personal development,relationships with colleagues, and consequences for service users.Procurement documents were studied and interviews performedwith four experienced staff members. Results show that manager turnover,administrative changes, and terms of employment contracts increasedconflicts and staff vulnerability. Staff responses are discussedin terms of exit, voice and loyalty.

    Abstract [en]

    Studies in international social work is a joint report series between the Department of Social Work and INSWED (International Social Work Education and Development), both of which are at Stockholm University. The series was started in 2002 in order to reflect some of the international work relevant for social work that is being done by or in cooperation with these entities. It is open for ‘traditional’ academic work as well as international development cooperation projects. The research reports selected for publication in the series concern projects conducted in collaboration with Stockholm University and which can be expected to be of common interest to a wide range of readers. For this reason they are published in English. To date, the series has been devoted mostly to child welfare issues.

    Abstract [en]

    This report describes an exploration of Google Trends in an attempt to determine its usefulness for social work research. Web searches on Google Trends related to social work were undertaken for the period 2007-2013. Hits related to jobs and education dominated. Emerging trends related to social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, but also came up for words such as evidence, technology and measure that might be interpreted in terms of theories or concepts, e,g., New Public Management and managerial social work. These findings were compared with numbers of reported studies in the databases Web of Science and PsycInfo. The paper includes some practical suggestions that might improve searches; but Google Trends is a tool still in the process of development and so far its usefulness for academic social work appears to be limited.

    Income and education as predictors of return to working life among younger stroke patients2011In: BMC Public Health, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 11, p. 742-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Socioeconomic conditions are not only related to poor health outcomes, they also contribute to the chances of recovery from stroke. This study examines whether income and education were predictors of return to work after a first stroke among persons aged 40-59. Methods: All first-stroke survivors aged 40-59 who were discharged from a hospital in 1996-2000 and who had received income from work during the year prior to the stroke were sampled from the Swedish national register of in-patient care (n = 7,081). Income and education variables were included in hazard regressions, modelling the probability of returning to work from one to four years after discharge. Adjustments for age, sex, stroke subtype, and length of in-patient care were included in the models. Results: Both higher income and higher education were associated with higher probability of returning to work. While the association between education and return to work was attenuated by income, individuals with university education were 13 percent more likely to return than those who had completed only compulsory education, and individuals in the highest income quartile were about twice as likely to return as those in the lowest. The association between socioeconomic position and return to work was similar for different stroke subtypes. Income differences between men and women also accounted for women's lower probability of returning to work. Conclusions: The study demonstrates that education and income were independent predictors of returning to work among stroke patients during the first post-stroke years. Taking the relative risk of return to work among those in the higher socioeconomic positions as the benchmark, there may be considerable room for improvement among patients in lower socioeconomic strata.

    Patterns of Poor Health among Junior and Senior High School Students in Sweden2017In: Health Behavior and Policy Review, E-ISSN 2326-4403, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 294-305Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: We examined how students’ self-perceived poor health is associated with social background, family, and school situation.

    Methods: Questionnaires distributed to 13,006 students in Sweden were examined using logistic regression analyses. The investigation focused on students reporting both poor self-rated health and subjective health complaints, referred to asself-perceived poor health.

    Results: Besides age and sex, we found associations between self-perceived poor health and family structure, relationship with parents, and school-related factors such as truancy, grades, and perceived school climate.

    Conclusions: Self-perceived poor health is related to both family and school related factors. Therefore, preventive health interventions need to include both school and family. Special attention should be given to truant students.

    Vem kan man lita på? Skolelevers förtroende för skolpersonal2013In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 90, no 4, p. 591-603Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Syftet var att studera skolelevers förtroende för lärare och elevhälsopersonal i förhållande till sociala bakgrundsfaktorer och familjesituation. Elever från mellan-, högstadium samt gymnasieskolan (n=28,798) besvarade enkätfrågor på skoltid. Elevernas svar analyserades med binära logistiska regressioner. Resultatet visar att elever som har förtroende för skolpersonal oftare har förtroende för sina föräldrar, bor med båda föräldrarna och kommer från resursstarka hem. Äldre elever har mer sällan förtroende för skolpersonal än yngre. Äldre elever med invandrarbakgrund har i lägre grad förtroende för skolpersonal än de med svensk bakgrund. Pojkar på högstadiet uppger oftare att de har förtroende för lärare än flickor, medan flickor i högre grad har förtroende för skolsköterska.
