    Working with children in families with parental substance abuse: nurses' experiences and complexity in relationships2016In: Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, ISSN 0279-3695, E-ISSN 1938-2413, Vol. 54, no 6, p. 38-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Children who grow up in families with parental substance abuse are exposed to increased risk of developing a variety of disorders. As nurses encounter these children, it is important for them to be supportive. The aim of the current study was to describe nurses' experiences and reflections regarding their work with children in families with parental substance abuse. A qualitative descriptive approach was adopted. Seven nurses were interviewed, and data were analyzed using inductive content analysis. The results were presented in four categories: (a) nurses' responsibilities; (b) identification of children's social network; (c) ethical concerns; and (d) assessment and evaluation of children's behavior. Nurses' preventive work and intervention in dysfunctional families may have direct consequences on children's present and future development and well-being.

    "Vad kan jag säga?": Att möta patienter med suicidalt beteende inom akutsjukvården - sjuksköterskors attityder och upplevelser2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND. Every year, 800,000 suicides are carried out in the world and in Sweden suicidal behaviour is the most common cause of death among individuals 15 to 44 years. The nurse's specific expertise in emergency care consists of the patient's care, a task which the suicidal patients state requires a positive attitude and the opportunity to devote time to the patient. Despite this, this patient group states that they are addressed by sentencing nurses with a lack of understanding. But how do nurses experience this meeting and their attitude towards this patient group? AIM. The aim of this general literature review was to describe nurses’ attitudes to and experiences of meeting patients with suicidal behaviour in emergency care. METHOD. The study's design is a descriptive general literature review. Articles were searched in CINAHL and MEDLINE via PubMed and 12 articles were included in the results. RESULTS. The study showed that nurses in emergency care generally held positive attitudes towards patients with suicidal behaviour. Negative attitudes were also described, which could be influenced by the nurses' own moral and religious values. The encounter between nurse and suicidal patient created great frustration among the nurses, due to lack of time and environmental adjustment for patients with suicidal behaviour, as well as the feeling of not having the knowledge and skills needed to care for this patient group. CONCLUSION. Nurses need education in suicidal behaviour to influence their attitude and experience of meeting this patient group. 

    KEYWORDS: suicidal behavior, nurses, attitudes, emergency care

    Närståendes behov av stöd och det dagliga livet efter att anhörig med demenssjukdom vårdats på geriatrisk neuropsykiatrisk avdelning: en empirisk studie2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Demenssjukdom är en degenerativ sjukdom vilket innebär att personens kognitiva förmåga blir sämre med tiden. Behovet av hjälp från omgivningen, för att kunna upprätthålla en fungerande vardag, blir allt större ju längre sjukdomen framskrider. Närstående har en viktig roll i omsorgen av en familjemedlem som drabbas av demenssjukdom. Syftet. Syftet med studien var att beskriva närståendes behov av stöd och deras erfarenheter av det dagliga livet efter att anhörig med demenssjukdom vårdats på geriatrisk neuropsykiatrisk avdelning. Metod. Studien hade en beskrivande design med kvalitativ ansats. Totalt sex individuella semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes. Insamlade materialet har analyserats med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat. Det framkom att närståendes erfarenhet var att det inte bara var praktiskt stöd som var viktigt utan också stöd i form av information och kontakt med olika professionerna. Närståendes erfarenheter av professionell kontakt vid utskrivning upplevdes ofta som bristfällig. Det framkom även att behovet av stöd var individuellt för att få en fungerande vardag. Närstående som hade stöd i form av avlastning, dagvård eller hemtjänst upplevde att de fick anpassa sig efter hemtjänsten men att dessa stöd gav en viss frihet. Vidare framkom det i studien att en del närstående försökte leva som vanligt, genom att fortsätta med sina aktiviteter som innan familjemedlemmens diagnos.  Slutsats. Studien visar vikten av bra information och kontakt mellan specialistsjuksköterskan, närstående och övriga personal för att ge stöd till närstående och underlätta dennes vardag. Studien belyste även närstående som var nöjda med det stöd och den kontakt som de fick, samt de närstående som valde att ta vara på livet genom att fortsätta med livet och aktiviteter som innan den anhörig drabbades av demenssjukdom.

    Effekten av att använda tryckavlastande hjälpmedel intraoperativt på uppkomsten av trycksår: En experimentell studie2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish studies show that the performance of pressure ulcer prevention has low priority among registered nurses and that registered nurses have poor knowledge regarding occurrence and risk factors for pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcer causes great suffer for the patient and high costs to society. The most dangerous risk factor for pressure ulcer is immobility. During an operation, the patient may not feel any discomfort and are not able to change their body position as a result of anesthesia. An operation is therefore a high risk factor for the occurrence of pressure ulcers.The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of using a pressure relief device in patients with operation time of 90 minutes or longer to prevent the formation of pressure ulcers.An experimental study with a consecutive selection of 89 participants was conducted in a surgical department in central Sweden. The participants were randomly assigned to experimental or control group, in which the experimental group received a pressure-reliving Leg pad to relieve the pressure of sacrum and heels. Statistical analyzes, descriptive and non-parametric, were used to analyze the data collected.The results showed a significant difference with lower incidence of pressure ulcers on heels to the use of pressure-relieving Leg pad. No significant difference existed when it came to the sacrum, nor in terms of pre- and intraoperative risk factors.This study shows that pressure relief devices should be used for all normal to slightly overweighed patients intraoperative to minimize the number of pressure ulcers on the heels during long operations.

    Hur personer med schizofreni upplever att leva med sin sjukdom2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Schizophrenia is classified as a mental illness that contributes to a reformed perception of reality and which also provides impaired cognitive and social abilities. Schizophrenia belongs to the West's ten most disabling diseases. Previous research has shown that relatives have lack of knowledge about the disease and this lead, among other things, to insufficiency, and that they have difficulty knowing how much they should be involved in the lives of the individuals. Previous research has also shown that treatment based on the fact that people with schizophrenia have shared their experiences have led to positive aspects for both themselves, relatives and nursing staff.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe peoples experiences of living with schizophrenia.

    Method: A qualitative descriptive literature review containing 14 scientific articles.

    Main results: People with schizophrenia experienced shared feelings about relationships and employment. Positive feelings were that they experienced these as normalizing and beneficial when it came to self-esteem, a sense of belonging to society as well as socially beneficial. Negative feelings that were experienced were discrimination, impairment, mental abuse, but also that drugs, sleep and symptoms affected their ability to perform and day rhythm. Experiences of coping were that they often turned to religion, various self-supporting activities, and community with other people. However, some people with schizophrenia denied their condition because they did not feel sick. Many negative emotional moods occurred, and these led many times to suicidal thoughts and actions when it was thought to lead to freedom.

    Conclusion: People with schizophrenia experience difficulties through life and by talking about their experiences, it can contribute to an increased understanding of the disease for both the persons with schizophrenia, but also for relatives and nursing staff. This knowledge could be used to adapt different rehabilitation measures.

    Development in quality of relationship between the significant other and the lung cancer patient as perceived by the significant other2008In: European Journal of Oncology Nursing, ISSN 1462-3889, E-ISSN 1532-2122, Vol. 12, no 5, p. 430-5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To prospectively explore the quality of the relationship between significant others and patients during lung cancer. based on the perceptions of the significant others. Method: In a sample of 91 significant others, longitudinal data were collected during the first year after diagnosis, and explored on group level and as individual patterns over time. Results: Relational quality was skewed towards high quality, although 30% of the significant others reported low levels close to diagnosis. Forty-eight percent reported stability in the quality of their relationship during the disease trajectory. Within this group, 36% reported low levels of relational quality. Fifty-two percent reported change in quality of relationship and four typical patterns of change were identified. Two showed approximate linear changes in either a positive direction (15%) or a negative direction (49%), and two showed non-linear changes with a temporary ascending curve (11%) or a descending curve (26%). This implies that a change towards low levels of relational quality was most common. Conclusion: The present results show that illness may be a trigger for change in relational quality, which may have implications for future family-centred practice and research, since previously high relational quality has been linked to improved emotional well-being.

    Sjuksköterskans hinder och möjligheter till att använda forskningsresultat i sitt arbete på särskilt boende: En enkätstudie2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background. The nurse/specialist nurse has the responsibility that nursing is based on research results and proven experience. A number of studies show that it is beneficial for the patient when research results are used in nursing care. Nurses, however, have difficulty using research results even if they realize the importance of the use. Aim. To see what obstacles and opportunities there are for nurses, working in nursing homes, to use research results in their work. Method. Descriptive and comparative design with quantitative approach. Main results. This study shows that the biggest obstacle, for nurses working in nursing homes, in the use of research results, is the lack of time. The smallest obstacles were that the nurse considers that research is relevant to their work and that nurses see the value of research for the clinical activity. A significant difference can be seen depending on age how big barriers you experience in the use of research results, where younger nurses estimate higher barriers. Facilitating factors were an interested and positive management, colleagues to discuss research, and that research articles should be clear and easy to understand. Conclusion. In order to give nurses greater opportunity to use research results in their work, they should be given time to do this.

    Hur barn förbereds inför undersökningar och behandlingar samt hur det påverkar barnen: En litteraturstudie2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utsättas för det okända kan vara skrämmande för varje mänsklig varelse. När ett barn måste genomgå en undersökning eller behandling kan en sådan situation representera det okända och det hotfulla. Barn i alla åldrar behöver förberedas inför alla situationer. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva hur barn, i samband med sjukhusvistelse, förbereds inför undersökningar och behandlingar samt hur förberedelserna påverkar barnen. Vetenskapliga artiklar söktes i databaserna Medline via Pubmed och Academic Search Elite

    Resultatet, baserat på 15 kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar, visade att barn som förutom verbal information fick ett utökat förberedelseprogram i form av terapeutisk lek, audiovisuell information eller kognitiv beteendemetod, uppvisade lägre oro och stressnivåer i samband med undersökningar och behandlingar.

    Föräldrars upplevelser av vårdtiden då deras barn vårdades för Respiratoriskt Syncytievirus2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     

    Syftet med studien var att beskriva hur föräldrar upplevde vårdtiden samt att få en förståelse för vilka faktorer som påverkade dem när deras barn vårdades på en barnavdelning för Respiratoriskt syncytievirus (RSV) infektion. Författarna gjorde tio intervjuer som analyserades med innehållsanalys. Intervjuerna presenteras i två teman: betryggande men kravfullt samt frustrerande med otydligheter och brister. Föräldrarna kände sig avlastade och upplevde lättnad i sin oro för barnet när de och barnet blev omhändertagna på barnkliniken. Sjukvårdspersonalen ingav förtroende och hade ett bra bemötande men upplevdes ha bristande kunskaper när det gällde små barn, amning, mjölkhantering och sondmatning. När det gällde organisationen upplevde föräldrarna oklara rutiner och riktlinjer vilket ledde till otrygghet och förvirring. Föräldrarna beskrev betydelsen av att få vara delaktiga i vården samt att tas på allvar. De uttryckte att det fanns begränsningar i lokaler och utrustning vilket bidrog till att de kände sig bundna till rummet och utlämnade med stort ansvar över barnet. Föräldrarnas upplevelser under deras barns vårdtid för RSV infektion påverkades av sjukdomens specifika egenskaper och sjukvårdsorganisationen. Detta gör att sjukvårdspersonalens bemötande är extra betydelsefullt.

    Vårdpersonals attityder till personer med psykisk sjukdom: en litteraturstudie2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this descriptive literature review was to describe the attitudes of health personnel towards people with mental illness. The literature was gathered through the databases Medline and PsycINFO and a total of 15 scientific articles were chosen. The result was divided into two main categories: attitudes to mental illness and differences in attitudes. The result showed that health personnel in general had a negative view of people with mental illness and they regarded them as dangerous, unpredictable and violent. The personnel tried to avoid unnecessary conflicts with them and thought of them to be hard to communicate with. The attitudes varied depending on what psychiatric illness the person suffered from. A person with schizophrenia was believed to be more dangerous than a person with depression and the latter was believed to have a higher chance to recover. Nurses and doctors were positive to mental health services in residential neighbourhoods but didn't want to live next door to a person with a mental illness. Nurses seemed to have a more positive attitude than doctors to people with mental illness and personnel working in psychiatric care had a more positive view than personnel working in somatic care. Any unequivocal differences between men and women have not been found, but young health personnel seemed to be more negative than elder.

    Hur personer med Hiv upplever hälsa i vardagslivet2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Background: HIV is one of the world's largest public health problems, in 2017 the

    World Health Organization stated that about 37 million people worldwide are living

    with HIV. In Sweden, approximately 6,500 people are living with HIV and every year

    between 400-500 new cases of HIV are reported in Sweden. Despite good knowledge of

    HIV does prejudices, fears and a negative attitude towards people with HIV still exists

    within the healthcare sector. The understanding of an individual's everyday life is an

    important basis for the nurse's work because the understanding controls the actions the

    nurse can insert to ease the experience of health in everyday life. A better understanding

    of an individual's everyday life can also improve the relationship between the nurse and

    the patient and can facilitate the person's participation in their own care.

    Purpose: Describe how people with HIV experience health in their everyday life.

    Method: A literature review with descriptive design based on 12 qualitative articles.

    Findings: The result indicate that people with HIV experience difficulties regarding

    medication, stigmatization and discrimination as obstacles to health in their everyday

    life. While social support from family, friends, faith and healthcare staff can facilitate

    the experience of health in everyday life.

    Conclusion: People with HIV experience difficulties regarding medication,

    stigmatization and discrimination as obstacles to health in everyday life while social

    support from family, friends, faith and healthcare staff can facilitate the experience of

    health in everyday life. It is important to understand how the individual experiences his

    everyday life and what influences the experience of everyday life, this because an

    individual’s everyday life has to work in order for them to experience health.

    Validation of a Dutch self-efficacy scale for adherence to fluid allowance among patients on haemodialysis2013In: Journal of Renal Care, ISSN 1755-6686, Vol. 39, no 1, p. 31-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many haemodialysis patients have problems limiting their fluid intake, and this might be influenced by their self-efficacy. Thus interventions to improve patients' self-efficacy might lead to an improvement in their adherence to fluid restriction. The fluid intake appraisal inventory (FIAI) evaluates patients' self-efficacy with regard to fluid intake. The aim of this study was to translate and validate the FIAI for use in the Netherlands. Four translators, seven experts, and four haemodialysis patients participated in the translation part of the study. Thirty-three patients from one dialysis centre in the Netherlands completed the Dutch FIAI. The instrument had good content validity (interdialytic weight gain was found to be negatively correlated with self-efficacy), internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha = 0.982), and stability (Spearman's rho = 0.823). These findings indicate that the Dutch FIAI can be used in clinical practice as a self-efficacy screening instrument for adult haemodialysis patients on fluid restriction.

    Centralized vs. Decentralized Nursing Stations: Effects on Nurses' Functional Use of Space and Work Environment2010In: Health Environments Research & Design Journal, ISSN 1937-5867, E-ISSN 2167-5112, Vol. 3, no 4, p. 19-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: Evidence-based findings of the effects of nursing station design on nurses' work environment and work behavior are essential to improve conditions and increase retention among these fundamental members of the healthcare delivery team. The purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate how nursing station design (i.e., centralized and decentralized nursing station layouts) affected nurses' use of space, patient visibility, noise levels, and perceptions of the work environment. Background: Advances in information technology have enabled nurses to move away from traditional centralized paper-charting stations to smaller decentralized work stations and charting substations located closer to, or inside of, patient rooms. Improved understanding of the trade-offs presented by : centralized and decentralized nursing station design has the potential to provide useful information for future nursing station layouts. This information will be critical for understanding the nurse environment "fit." Methods: The study used an exploratory design with both qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative data regarding the effects of nursing station design on nurses' health and work environment were gathered by means of focus group interviews. Quantitative data-gathering techniques included, place- and person-centered space use observations, patient visibility assessments, sound level measurements, and an online questionnaire regarding perceptions of the work environment. Results: Nurses on all units were observed most frequently performing telephone, computer, and administrative duties. Time spent using telephones, computers, and performing other administrative duties was significantly higher in the centralized nursing stations. Consultations with medical staff and social interactions were significantly less frequent in decentralized nursing stations. There were no indications that either centralized or decentralized nursing station designs resulted in superior visibility. Sound levels measured in all nursing stations exceeded recommended levels during all shifts. No significant differences were identified in nurses' perceptions of work control-demand-support in centralized and decentralized nursing station designs. Conclusions: The "hybrid" nursing design model in which decentralized nursing stations are coupled with centralized meeting rooms for consultation between staff members may strike a balance between the increase in computer duties and the ongoing need for communication and consultation that addresses the conflicting demands of technology and direct patient care.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The aim of this review was to describe how quality of life is experienced among patients with diabetes type 2. Literature search was made in Medline and the keywords used were “diabetes mellitus type 2” and “quality of life”. Twenty studies were examined and categorized into four sections: Quality of life during complications due to diabetes type 2, quality of life during various treatments, quality of life during depression and quality of life and aspects in relation to the individual as well as social aspects. The designs of the studies were of a varying kind: randomized controlled studies, comparative studies, correlative studies and descriptive studies. The studies were published between the years of 2003-2007 and most frequently occurring were questionnaires. Validity and reliability of the instruments used in the studies were examined and valued. The number of participants in the samples varied between 49-5145 persons. The results showed that diabetes type 2-complications had a negative impact on quality of life, although different treatments and self-care support had the opposite effect. Other aspects of importance to quality of life were the support of family and relatives, age, sex, education, physical function, civil status and personal background.
