    Förekomst och uppkomst av skador inom CrossFit: Hur ofta, var och i vilka moment skadar sig svenska avancerade utövare?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet är att analysera skador, dess förekomst och uppkomst, bland svenska avancerade CrossFit-utövare. Frågeställningar är hur många skador inträffar och hur ofta skadar sig svenska avancerade CrossFit-utövare? Var är de eventuella skadorna lokaliserade? I vilka moment uppstår de eventuella skadorna?Metod som användes var ett frågeformulär om träningsrutiner och eventuella skador under tolv månaderna. Enkäten distribuerades via de sociala medierna Facebook och Instagram till individerna som placerade sig inom topp fem procent på den svenska Open-rankingen 2017. Data samlades in mellan 29 mars och 16 april 2018. Totalt uppfyllde 231 personer inklusionskriterierna och enkäten skickades till 217 av dessa. Av de 217 deltagarna svarade 130 på enkäten. Deskriptiva statistiska analystekniker i SPSS användes för att beskriva förekomst och uppkomst av skador.Resultatet visar att av samtliga respondenter har 85 (65,4 %) skadat sig vid minst ett tillfälle inom tolv månader. Skadeincidensen bland deltagarna beräknades till 1,7 skador per 1000 timmar av CrossFit-utövande. De vanligaste lokalisationerna för skada var i axel (n = 31, 22 %), ländrygg (n = 25, 18 %) och knä (n = 23, 17 %). De flesta av skadorna inträffade under momentet tyngdlyftning (n = 38, 23,7 %), gymnastik med redskap (n = 31, 19,3 %) följt av styrkelyft och övrig styrketräning på vardera 10 % (n = 16).Slutsatsen är att CrossFit inte har en högre skaderisk än många andra populära sporter. Avancerade CrossFit-utövare verkar skada sig i lägre utsträckning än övriga nivåer av CrossFit-utövare. Längre tid med utövande av CrossFit verkar minska skaderisken. Skador sker oftast i axlar, ländrygg och knän under momenten tyngdlyftning och gymnastik med redskap. Resultaten kan ge värdefull information för skadeförebyggande arbete inom CrossFit genom att förmedla kunskap om vilka kroppsdelar som oftast skadas och under vilka moment.

    Coping Patterns and Their Relation to Daily Activity, Worries, Depressed Mood, and Pain Intensity in Acute Whiplash-Associated Disorders2013In: International Journal of Behavioral Medicine, ISSN 1070-5503, E-ISSN 1532-7558, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 293-303Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND

    There is a lack of knowledge regarding how individuals with acute whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) appraise and cope with situation-specific stressors.

    PURPOSE

    The aim of the study was to describe the daily process of coping reported in a daily coping assessment by individuals with acute WAD within 1 month after the accident. More specifically, profiles of coping strategies were identified and patterns between stressors, primary and secondary appraisals, and coping strategy profiles were described in relation to reported level of activity, worries, depressed mood and pain intensity during the day.

    METHOD

    A descriptive and exploratory design was applied. Two hundred and twenty-nine whiplash-associated disorders-daily coping assessment (WAD-DCA) collected during seven consecutive days from 51 participants with acute WAD in Sweden, were included. Cluster analysis was used to obtain coping strategy profiles and data were graphically visualised as patterns through the coping process.

    RESULTS

    When measuring coping as a daily process relating to the specific stressful situation, different coping pocess patterns appeared. During days with a high degree of physical and mental well-being, high self-efficacy beliefs seemed to be working as an important secondary appraisal, whereas during days with a low degree of physical and mental well-being primary appraisals of the stressor as a threat and catastrophic thoughts were present in the coping process.

    CONCLUSIONS

    Early identification of situational- and individual-specific stressors, appraisals and coping efforts as measured by the WAD-DCA may contribute to the understanding of the coping process in the acute stage of WAD and its possible impact on recovery and adjustment.

    Measuring gait - how the choice of measure can affect the statistical results and the clinical interpretation2017In: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 8-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: The aim of this study was to illustrate how the choice of gait measure could affect the statistical analysis of data and the resulting clinical conclusions. Methodology: A descriptive design in which the results from different tests from 10 patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus illustrates the potential to generate different clinical conclusions. Major findings and principal conclusion: The results illustrate how the choice of measure can affect the statistical results and the clinical interpretation of a study. It is possible to have the paradoxical situation in which one group has a better walking ability if the variable speed is used but the other group has a better walking ability if the variable time is used. An important message is that the choice of measurement and the transformation of data are not primarily statistical issues. If the statistical results are to be useful for clinical decisions, the variables used must be directly related to the utility for the subjects. An understanding of the clinical relevance of different outcomes is required. The distinction between when numbers are purely descriptive and when numbers represent a valuation is subtle and difficult to comprehend.

    Perspectives of policy and political decision makers on access to formal dementia care: expert interviews in eight European countries2017In: BMC Health Services Research, ISSN 1472-6963, E-ISSN 1472-6963, Vol. 17, no 1, article id 518Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: As part of the ActifCare (ACcess to Timely Formal Care) project, we conducted expert interviews in eight European countries with policy and political decision makers, or representatives of relevant institutions, to determine their perspectives on access to formal care for people with dementia and their carers.

    METHODS: Each ActifCare country (Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, United Kingdom) conducted semi-structured interviews with 4-7 experts (total N = 38). The interview guide addressed the topics "Complexity and Continuity of Care", "Formal Services", and "Public Awareness". Country-specific analysis of interview transcripts used an inductive qualitative content analysis. Cross-national synthesis focused on similarities in themes across the ActifCare countries.

    RESULTS: The analysis revealed ten common themes and two additional sub-themes across countries. Among others, the experts highlighted the need for a coordinating role and the necessity of information to address issues of complexity and continuity of care, demanded person-centred, tailored, and multidisciplinary formal services, and referred to education, mass media and campaigns as means to raise public awareness.

    CONCLUSIONS: Policy and political decision makers appear well acquainted with current discussions among both researchers and practitioners of possible approaches to improve access to dementia care. Experts described pragmatic, realistic strategies to influence dementia care. Suggested innovations concerned how to achieve improved dementia care, rather than transforming the nature of the services provided. Knowledge gained in these expert interviews may be useful to national decision makers when they consider reshaping the organisation of dementia care, and may thus help to develop best-practice strategies and recommendations.

    Äldres uplevelser av depression: En litteraturstudie2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Idag är depression den vanligaste psykiatriska diagnosen i Sverige. Var femte svensk har någon gång i sitt liv fått diagnosen. Befolkningen i landet blir äldre och med åldern kommer riskfaktorer för depression. Dessa riskfaktorer är minskad socioekonomisk status, att förlora en eller flera familjemedlemmar och funktionsnedsättning.

    Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva äldre personers upplevelse av att leva med depression samt att beskriva urvalsgrupperna.

    Metod: En deskriptiv litteraturstudie med 12 artiklar. 10 av dessa var kvalitativa och 2 hade mixad metod. Sökningarna gjordes i PubMed och Cinahl. Samtliga deltagare led av depressiva symtom, enbart några hade diagnosen depression.

    Huvudresultat: Äldre personer med depression upplevde rädslor för de känslor som kom i samband med depressionen. De upplevde också att de isolerade sig från vänner och bekanta på grund av sin sjukdom. Dels på grund av att de förlorade självförtroendet men också på grund av de fysiska smärtorna som gjorde att de inte orkade umgås. Deltagarna upplevde också att mötet med vården till stor del var negativt. Dock framkom att upplevelsen av sjuksköterskor var positiv.

    Slutsats: Andelen äldre ökar och likaså psykisk ohälsa. Äldre personer som lever med depression är svåra att upptäcka och det kan leda till onödigt lidande. Därför är det viktigt att sjuksköterskor har kunskap inom ämnet för att kunna ge bästa möjliga omvårdnad. Nyckelord: Depression, upplevelser, äldre

    Broeng, K. (2015). Malnutrition in the elderly care. A qualitative study about how nutrition managers works preventively against malnutrition with patients in the elderly care. Bachelor thesis in Public Health science. Department of work- and public health science. The academy of health and working life. University of Gävle, Sweden  The aim of the thesis was to describe how nutrition managers in the elderly care works preventively against malnutrition and also to describe the barriers that the nutrition managers considers to be common in the work with preventing malnutrition. Qualitative method with individual semistructured interviews was used and later on, the material was analyzed by a thematic analysis. Four people in the charge for elderlys nutrition in the elderly care was interviewed. The results found that nutrition managers in the elderly care, among other things, works preventively against malnutrition for the elderly by making estimations if the elderly are at risk of malnutrition. The results also found that meals for the elderly are in some cases planned by recommendations by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and the Swedish National Food Administration (NFA) and also some activities around meals that was planned were based on NFAs recommendations for prevention of malnutrition. Another thing the results found was that a big part of the nutrition managers working with prevention of malnutrition was to teach and motivate the other staff in the elderly care to work preventively against malnutrition, because the nutrition managers perceived that the staff did not have enough motivation and knowledge about the subject.

    Hur patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt skattar och upplever sin livskvalitet efter utskrivning från sjukhus: En litteraturstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund

    Att ha drabbats av en hjärtinfarkt kan vara väldigt omvälvande och innebär inte bara att patienter kan få fysiska skador på hjärtmuskulaturen utan även att den psykiska hälsan kan påverkas. Därför är det viktigt att studera hur patienter skattar och upplever att deras livskvalitet har påverkats efter att de drabbats av hjärtinfarkt.

    Syfte

    Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva hur patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt skattar och upplever sin livskvalitet efter utskrivning från sjukhus samt vilka datainsamlingsmetoder som använts i artiklarna.

    Metod

    Examensarbetet har gjorts i form av en deskriptiv litteraturstudie utifrån 12 stycken artiklar med kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats. Artiklarna är hämtade från databaserna Medline och PsycINFO och har granskats av båda författarna.

    Huvudresultat

    Studien visar att livskvaliteten kan förändras hos patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt, och att många kan ha svårt att acceptera och hantera den nya situationen. I föreliggande studie framkom att patienternas brist på energi ligger till grunden för andra problem hos majoriteten av patienterna. Data har samlats in med hjälp av enkäter samt genom semistrukturerade intervjuer.

    Slutsats

    Denna studie visar att patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt behöver tydlig information om deras tillstånd och vad de har att förvänta sig efter hjärtinfarkten för att lättare kunna acceptera och hantera den omvälvande situationen. Informationen och rehabiliteringen bör vara anpassad utifrån varje enskild individ eftersom patienterna många gånger upplever olika typer av problem och då kan behöva olika strategier för att handskas med dessa.

    Patienters upplevelser i samband med rehabilitering efter stroke: En beskrivande litteraturstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Stroke is a disease that affects approximately 30,000 people in Sweden each year, and is estimated to cost society around SEK 18 billion. Rehabilitation after stroke is often intense, multi-faceted and long lasting.

    Aim: The aim of the present study was to describe patients' experiences of rehabilitation after stroke and to describe the study group in the included articles.

    Methods: A descriptive literature review based on 12 qualitative studies.

    Results: Stroke was perceived as a disruptive life events and the main goal of all rehabilitation was to return to the life that patients lived before the stroke.The hope of regaining lost functions were perceived as important and any signs of improvement gave motivation to continue rehabilitation.The contrast was considerable between those patients who experienced participation in the rehabilitation process, and those who wished they had a bigger influence.Women felt less involved than men. It was revealed that the patients felt that they had been discharged prematurely from the stroke unit and were not prepared for the homecoming. Their reduced abilities became much clearer when they returned to their everyday lives at home and they lacked the close contact and the exchange of experiences they had had with other patients in the hospital.

    Conclusion: It was found that patients with stroke have different experiences regarding goals, support, information and participation in rehabilitation. An individualized approach to patient goals is significant and adequate information is important. Effective support from health professionals contribute to increased participation and increase the patient's ability to perform and manage activities in the rehabilitation.

    SKUP3 randomised controlled trial: polysomnographic results after uvulopalatopharyngoplasty in selected patients with obstructive sleep apnoea2013In: Thorax, ISSN 0040-6376, E-ISSN 1468-3296, Vol. 68, no 9, p. 846-853Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the 6-month efficacy of uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) compared with expectancy in selected patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS).

    DESIGN: A prospective single-centre randomised controlled trial with two parallel arms stratified by Friedman stage and body mass index (BMI).

    PARTICIPANTS: 65 consecutive patients with moderate to severe OSAS (apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) ≥15 events/h sleep), BMI <36 kg/m(2), Epworth sleepiness scale ≥8, Friedman stage I or II.

    INTERVENTION: Surgical treatment with UPPP. The control group underwent UPPP after a delay of 6 months.

    OUTCOMES: Changes in AHI and other polysomnography parameters at baseline compared with the 6-month follow-up.

    RESULTS: All patients (32 in the intervention group and 33 in the control group) completed the trial. The mean (SD) AHI in the intervention group decreased significantly (p<0.001) by 60% from 53.3 (19.7) events/h to 21.1 (16.7) events/h . In the control group the mean AHI decreased by 11% from 52.6 (21.7) events/h to 46.8 (22.8) events/h, with a significant difference between the groups (p<0.001). The mean time in the supine position and the BMI were unchanged in both groups. Subgroup analyses for Friedman stage, BMI group and tonsil size all showed significant reductions in AHI in the intervention group compared with controls. There were no severe complications after surgery.

    CONCLUSIONS: This trial demonstrates the efficacy of UPPP in treating selected patients with OSAS with a mean reduction in AHI of 60% compared with 11% in controls, a highly significant and clinically relevant difference between the groups.

    TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: NCT01659671.

    Patienters erfarenheter av livet samt livskvalité efter en hjärtinfarkt.2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Hjärtinfarkt är en vanlig sjukdom, som drabbar både män och kvinnor. Syretillförseln till hjärtat minskar, vilket försämrar hjärtats vitala funktion. Hjärtinfarkt kan påverka människans hälsa och livskvalitet ur olika aspekter. Det behövs mer kunskap om detta.

    Syfte: Att beskriva patienters erfarenheter av livet samt livskvalité efter en hjärtinfarkt.

    Metod: En beskrivande litteraturstudie. Sökningar av artiklar gjordes i databasen Cinahl. Studiens resultat grundar sig på tio utvalda vetenskapliga artiklar, varav sju kvantitativa, två kvalitativa samt en mixed method.

    Resultat: I studiens resultat framkom att hjärtinfarktpatienters erfarenheter av sin livskvalitet kan delas upp i två huvudkategorier, nämligen negativ samt positiva erfarenheter av sin livskvalitet. Många patienter upplever en kraftig trötthet, psykiska besvär i form av oro/rädsla samt fysiska begränsningar. Vissa patienter kan känna tacksamhet för att de faktiskt fortfarande lever, samt att det framkommit hur viktigt det är med coping. De negativa erfarenheterna delades upp i underkategorier trötthet/sömnbrist, psykisk påverkan, social påverkan samt fysiska begränsningar. Motsvarande delades de positiva erfarenheterna upp i underkategorierna hopp/tacksamhet samt copingstrategier.

    Slutsats: Denna studie visade på hur patienters erfarenheter speglade deras livskvalitet efter drabbad hjärtinfarkt. Erfarenheterna kunde efter analys delas upp i två olika huvudkategorier, positivt samt negativt. I denna studie beskrivs hur patienternas vardag påverkas av diagnosen hjärtinfarkt och hur den influerar på dennes livskvalitet. Det mest påtagliga som uppkom från resultatet var de olika begränsningar som patienterna ansåg påverka deras livskvalité.

    Vårdpersonal kan med fördel ta del av denna studie för att i fortsatt omvårdnadsarbete kunna se patienten i centrum och identifiera dennes behov för att upprätthålla en bra livskvalitet.

    BVC-sjuksköterskors reflektioner kring sitt arbete med övervikt och fetma hos barn mellan 2 och 5 år inom primärvården2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Fyrtioen miljoner barn runt om i världen under 5 års ålder lider idag av övervikt eller fetma. Detta ställer högre krav på BVC-sjuksköterskans arbete med prevention av övervikt och fetma.

    Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva BVC-sjuksköterskors reflektioner kring sitt arbete med övervikt och fetma hos barn mellan 2 och 5 år inom primärvården.

    Metod: En kvalitativ ansats med en deskriptiv design har använts i denna studie. Datainsamlingen har skett via semistrukturerade intervjuer med nio kvinnliga BVC-sjuksköterskor som hade erfarenhet av fetma och övervikt hos barn mellan 2 och 5 år. Materialet analyserades med hjälp av manifest och latent innehållsanalys.

    Huvudresultat: I analysprocessen framkom ett tema och fyra kategorier. Temat var Att inte skuldbelägga föräldrarna och skapa förutsättningar för livsstilsförändringar för hela familjen. De fyra kategorierna som framkom var: Förutsättningar i BVC-sjuksköterskans arbete, Ett familjefokuserat arbetssätt, BVC-sjuksköterskans förebyggande arbete samt Hinder och utmaningar i BVC-sjuksköterskans arbete.

    De BVC-sjuksköterskor som deltog beskrev önskan av att inte skuldbelägga föräldrarna och hur de försökte skapa förutsättningar för en livsstilsförändring för att kunna passa hela familjen. Ibland hade dock BVC-sjuksköterskorna svårt att utföra detta arbetet på grund av olika hinder. BVC-sjuksköterskorna upplevde att föräldrarna var det största hindret i arbetet med livsstilsförändringar hos familjen.

    Slutsats: BVC-sjuksköterskor behöver mer tid och kunskap inom området barnfetma, för att lättare kunna hjälpa föräldrarna så att familjen kan uppnå en livsstilsförändring, som i slutändan hjälper barnet att uppnå en hälsosammare kroppsvikt.

    Abstract

    Bruzelius, E. (2010). Adolescents and sexuality – Attitudes among employees at Juvenile receptions in Gävleborgs län. Högskolan i Gävle, Akademin för hälsa och arbetsliv.

    The aim of the current study was to examine and describe what perceptions and values of em-ployees at Juvenile receptions in the county of Gävleborg have about adolescents’ sexual and general health. Information was gathered from three different employees at Juvenile recept-ions in the county of Gävleborg, one welfare officer and two midwifes. The method used was unstructured qualitative interviews. The results show that the informants put adolescents’ sex-uality in relation to their general health status and they think there are distinct connections between adolescents’ attitudes toward sexuality and their sexual behaviors. Furthermore, all the respondents argue that parents and the society have very strong impact on adolescents’ attitudes toward sexuality. The results are eventually discussed in relation to previous studies.

    Sexual knowledge in patients with a myocardial infarction and their partners2014In: Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 0889-4655, E-ISSN 1550-5049, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 332-339Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Sexual health and sexual activity are important elements of an individual’s well-being. For couples, this topic is often affected after a myocardial infarction (MI). It has become increasingly clear that, after an MI, patients are insufficiently educated on how to resume normal sexual activity. However, sufficient data on the general knowledge that patients and partners have about sexual activity and MI are lacking.

    Objective: The aims of this study were to explore and compare patients’ and partners’ sexual knowledge 1 month after a first MI and 1 year after the event and to compare whether the individual knowledge had changed over time. A second aim was to investigate whether patients and their partners report receiving information about sexual health and sexual activity from healthcare professionals during the first year after the event and how this information was perceived.

    Subjects and Methods: This descriptive, comparative survey study enrolled participants from 13 Swedish hospitals in 2007-2009. A total of 115 patients with a first MI and their partners answered the Sex After MI Knowledge Test questionnaire 1 month after the MI and 1 year after the event. Correct responses generated a maximum score of 75.

    Results: Only 41% of patients and 31% of partners stated that they had received information on sex and relationships at the 1 year follow-up. The patients scored 51±10 on the Sex After MI Knowledge Test at inclusion into the study, compared with the 52±10 score for the partners. At the 1-year follow-up, the patients’ knowledge had significantly increased to a score of 55±7, but the partners’ knowledge did not significantly change (53±10).

    Conclusions: First MI patients and their partners reported receiving limited information about sexual issues during the cardiac rehabilitation and had limited knowledge about sexual health and sexual activity.

    Sjuksköterskans roll för att främja egenvård och livsstilsförändringar hos personer med metabolt syndrom2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Metabolt syndrom är ett samlingsnamn för riskfaktorer som kan orsaka allvarliga komplikationer som hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar och diabetes typ 2. Tillståndet ökar kraftigt i världen och är ett globalt problem som är starkt associerat till hur personen lever sitt vardagliga liv. Därför är livsstilsförändringar avgörande för att främja hälsa hos personer med metabolt syndrom. Syfte: Litteraturstudiens syfte var att beskriva hur sjuksköterskan kan främja egenvården och livsstilsförändringar hos personer som har metabolt syndrom. Metod: Underlaget för litteraturstudien hämtades från databasen Medline via sökmotor Pubmed. Totalt 10 kvalitetsgranskade artiklar som besvarade litteraturstudiens syfte valdes för inkludering. Artiklarna innehöll både kvalitativa och kvantitativa ansatser. Huvudresultat: Insamlat material uppvisade att undervisning och rådgivning inom egenvård är viktiga aspekter för att verkställa livsstilsförändringar hos personer med metabolt syndrom. Att vara tillräckligt kompetent inom egenvårdsåtgärder är avgörande i sjuksköterskeprofessionen. Med hjälp av olika slag av underlag kan sjuksköterskan genomföra strukturerad undervisning, rådgivning samt uppföljning med personer som är i behov av att förändra levnadsvanor. Slutsats: Litteraturstudien visade att sjuksköterskan kan bidra till att främja genomförandet av egenvården hos personer med metabolt syndrom genom att vägleda till livsstilsförändringar. I och med att personerna upprätthåller sin egenvård bildas i längden en livsstilsförändring som förbättrar metabolt syndrom.

    Equitable Child Health Interventions: The Impact of Improved Water and Sanitation on Inequalities in Child Mortality in Stockholm, 1878 to 19252005In: American Journal of Public Health, ISSN 0090-0036, E-ISSN 1541-0048, Vol. 95, no 2, p. 208-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, many of the 10 million childhood deaths each year are caused by diseases of poverty—diarrhea and pneumonia, for example, which were previously major causes of childhood death in many European countries. Specific analyses of the historical decline of child mortality may shed light on the potential equity impact of interventions to reduce child mortality.

    In our study of the impact of improved water and sanitation in Stockholm from 1878 to 1925, we examined the decline in overall and diarrhea mortality among children, both in general and by socioeconomic group. We report a decline in overall mortality and of diarrhea mortality and a leveling out of socioeconomic differences in child mortality due to diarrheal diseases, but not of overall mortality. The contribution of general and targeted policies is discussed.

    Acute effects of vibration on thermal perception thresholds2008In: International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health, ISSN 0340-0131, E-ISSN 1432-1246, Vol. 81, no 5, p. 603-611Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective This study focuses on the acute effects of vibration and how vibrations influence the measures of the thermal perception thresholds during different vibration magnitudes, frequencies, and durations.

    Methods The fingers of ten healthy subjects, five males and five females, were exposed to vibration under 16 conditions with a combination of different frequency, intensity and exposure time. The vibration frequency was 31.5 and 125 Hz and exposure lasted between 2 and 16 min. The energy-equivalent frequency weighted acceleration, according to ISO 5349-1, for the experimental time of 16 min was 2.5 or 5.0 m/s(2) (r.m.s.), corresponding to a 8-h equivalent acceleration, A(8) of 0.46 and 0.92 m/s(2), respectively. A measure of the thermal perception of cold and warmth was conducted before the different exposures to vibration. Immediately after the vibration exposure the acute effect was measured continuously on the exposed index finger for the first 75 s, followed by 30 s of measures at every minute for a maximum of 10 min. If the subject's thermal thresholds had not recovered, the measures continued for a maximum of 30 min with measurements taken every 5 min.

    Results For all experimental conditions and 30 s after exposure, the mean changes of the thresholds compared with the pre-test were found to be 0.05 and -0.67C for the warmth and cold thresholds, respectively. The effect of the vibration exposure was only significant on the cold threshold and only for the first minute after exposure when the threshold was decreased. The warmth threshold was not significantly affected at all. The frequency and the exposure time of the vibration stimuli had no significant influence on the perception thresholds for the sensation of cold or warmth. Increased equivalent frequency weighted acceleration resulted in a significant decrease of the subjects' cold threshold, not the warmth. The thresholds were unaffected when changes in the vibration magnitude were expressed as the frequency weighted acceleration or the unweighted acceleration.

    Conclusion When testing for the thermotactile thresholds, exposure to vibration on the day of a test might influence the results. Until further knowledge is obtained the previous praxis of 2 h avoidance of vibration exposure before assessment is recommended.

    Sjuksköterskors och Distriktsköterskors erfarenheter av telefonrådgivning: En systematisk litteraturstudie2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Telefonen är ett kommunikativ redskap som till fortsatt stor del användas idag, när personer ute i samhället behöver hälso-och sjukvårdsråd. Man kan definiera telefonrådgivning som praxis att tillhandahålla en komponent av telefonrådgivning som fokuserar på att bedöma, prioritera och referera till korrekt vårdnivå samt att identifiera orsaken och skyndsamheten av vårdsökarens behov. Svårigheter med telefonrådgivning för sjuksköterskor kan vara att man inte ser patienten som man samtalar med Syfte: Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskors och distriktsköterskors erfarenheter av telefonrådgivning. Metod: En systematisk litteraturstudie genomfördes med databassökningar i Cinahl och Pubmed. Studien består av 12 vetenskapliga artiklar av kvalitativ, kvantitativ och mixmetod ansatts. Artiklarnas innehåll hade kritiskt granskat utifrån deras relevans mot syftet. Resultat: Tre övergripande kategorier framkom: Erfarenheter av kommunikation, Erfarenheter av krävande patientmöten och Erfarenheter av organisationen samt 12 subkategorier som belyser dessa svårigheter. Diskussion: I resultat så framkom det olika aspekter som telefonrådgivningssjuksköterskan fick hantera i samband med telefonrådgivningstillfället. Telefonrådgivningssjuksköterskans erfarenheter av att lyssna och ställa öppna medicinska frågor belystes som en bidragande faktor till att säkerhetsställa att korrekt information blivit utbytt mellan parterna. Det fanns många faktorer som kunde försvåra telefonrådgivningssamtalet så som krävande patienten men också telefonrådgivningssjuksköterskans egen arbetsmiljö. Slutsatser: Telefonrådgivningssjuksköterskornas erfarenheter av att arbeta med telefonrådgivning är att det förekommer många patientmöten som medför svårigheter för telefonrådgivningssjuksköterskan att hantera.

    Unresolved grief and its consequences: A nationwide follow-up of teenage loss of a parent to cancer 6-9 years earlier2016In: Supportive Care in Cancer, ISSN 0941-4355, E-ISSN 1433-7339, Vol. 24, no 7, p. 3095-3103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose The early loss of a parent is a tragedy and a serious life event. This study investigated grief resolution and morbidity in cancer-bereaved teenagers 6 to 9 years after the loss of a parent to cancer. MethodsIn a nationwide population-based study of 622 of 851 (73 %) youths who as teenagers 6 to 9 years earlier had lost a parent to cancer, we explored the magnitude of unresolved grief and its association with psychological and physiological morbidity. Participants answered a study-specific anonymous questionnaire including questions about if they had worked through their grief and about their current health. Results Six to nine years post-loss 49 % reported unresolved grief (8 % no and 41 % a little grief resolution). They had, in comparison with youths reporting resolved grief. statistically significantly elevated risks, e.g. for insomnia (sons' relative risk (RR) 2.3, 95 % CI 1.3-4.0; daughters' RR 1.7, 95 % CI 1.1-2.7), fatigue (sons' RR 1.8, 95 % CI 1.3-2.5; daughters' RR 1.4, 95 % CI 1.1-1.7) and moderate to severe depression, i.e. score &gt;9, PHQ-9 (sons' RR 3.6, 95 % CI 1.4-8.8; daughters' RR 1.8, 95 % CI 1.1-3.1). Associations remained for insomnia in sons, exhaustion in daughters and fatigue in both sons and daughters when depression, negative intrusive thoughts and avoiding reminders of the parents' disease or death were included in a model. Conclusions Approximately half of cancer-bereaved youth report no or little grief resolution 6 to 9 years post-loss, which is associated with fatigue, sleeping problems and depressive symptoms.

    Communication and Trust in the Care Provided to a Dying Parent: A Nationwide Study of Cancer-Bereaved Youths2013In: Journal of Clinical Oncology, ISSN 0732-183X, E-ISSN 1527-7755, Vol. 31, no 23, p. 2886-2894Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose To assess children's trust in the care provided to a dying parent during the final week of life in relation to end-of-life medical information about disease, treatment, and death. Methods This nationwide population-based survey included 622 (73%) of 851 youths who, 6 to 9 years earlier, at age 13 to 16 years, lost a parent to cancer. We asked about the children's reception of end-of-life professional information and trust in the care provided. We also asked about depression and several potential risk factors of distrust in the care provided. Results A majority (82%) reported moderate/very much trust in the care provided. Compared with children who received end-of-life medical information before their loss, the risk of distrust in the care provided was higher in those who received no information (risk ratio [RR], 2.5; 95% CI, 1.5 to 4.1), in those who only received information afterward (RR, 3.2; 95% CI, 1.7 to 5.9), and in those who did not know or remember if end-of-life medical information was provided (RR, 1.7; 95% CI, 1.1 to 2.5). Those reporting distrust in the care provided had an RR of 2.3 (95% CI, 1.5 to 3.5) for depression. Furthermore, the risk of distrust in the care provided was higher among children reporting poor efforts to cure (RR, 5.1; 95% CI, 3.6 to 7.3), and/or a poor relationship with the surviving parent (RR, 2.9; 95% CI, 2.0 to 4.1). Conclusion Our study suggests that children's trust in the care provided to a dying parent was highest when they received end-of-life medical information before their loss.

    Self-injury in teenagers who lost a parent to cancer: a nationwide, population-based, long-term follow-up2013In: JAMA pediatrics, ISSN 2168-6203, E-ISSN 2168-6211, Vol. 167, no 2, p. 133-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of self-injury in parentally cancer-bereaved youth compared with their nonbereaved peers.

    DESIGN: Population-based study of cancer-bereaved youth and a random sample of matched population controls.

    SETTING: Sweden in 2009 and 2010.

    PARTICIPANTS: A total of 952 youth (74.8%) confirmed to be eligible for the study returned the questionnaire: 622 (73.1%) of 851 eligible young adults who lost a parent to cancer between the ages of 13 and 16 years, in 2000 to 2003, and 330 (78.4%) of 451 nonbereaved peers.

    MAIN EXPOSURE: Cancer bereavement or nonbreavement during the teenage years.

    MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Unadjusted and adjusted odds ratios (ORs) of self-injury after January 1, 2000.

    RESULTS: Among cancer-bereaved youth, 120 (19.5%) reported self-injury compared with 35 (10.6%) of their nonbereaved peers, yielding an OR of 2.0 (95% CI, 1.4-3.0). After controlling for potential confounding factors in childhood (eg, having engaged in self-destructive behavior, having been bullied, having been sexually or physically abused, having no one to share joys and sorrows with, and sex), the adjusted OR was 2.3 (95% CI, 1.4-3.7). The OR for suicide attempts was 1.6 (95% CI, 0.8-3.0).

    CONCLUSIONS: One-fifth of cancer-bereaved youth reported self-injury, representing twice the odds for self-injury in their nonbereaved peers, regardless of any of the adjustments we made. Raised awareness on a broad basis in health care and allied disciplines would enable identification and support provision to this vulnerable group.

    Teenagers want to be told when a parent's death is near: A nationwide study of cancer-bereaved youths' opinions and experiences.2015In: Acta Oncologica, ISSN 0284-186X, E-ISSN 1651-226X, Vol. 54, no 6, p. 944-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate cancer-bereaved youths' opinions and experiences of being told about a parent's imminent death from cancer and of barriers to this communication.

    MATERIAL AND METHODS: This nationwide population-based survey included 622/851 (73%) youths (aged 18-26) who at age 13-16, 6-9 years earlier had lost a parent to cancer.

    RESULTS: In total 595 of 610 (98%) of the participants stated that teenage children should be informed when the parent's death was imminent (i.e. a matter of hours or days, not weeks). 59% stated that they themselves had been told this, 37% by the parents, 7% by parents and healthcare professionals together and 8% by professionals only. Frequent reasons for why the teenager and parents did not talk about imminent death before loss were that one (n=106) or both (n=25) of the parents together with the teenage child had pretended that the illness was not that serious, or that none of the parents had been aware that death was imminent (n=80). Up to a couple of hours before the loss, 43% of participants had not realized that death was imminent.

    CONCLUSION: In this population-based study virtually all youth who at ages 13-16 had lost a parent to cancer afterwards stated that teenagers should be told when loss is near, i.e. a matter of hours or days, not weeks. Many stated that they had not been given this information and few were informed by professionals, with implications for future improvements in end-of-life care of patients with teenage children.

    Self-injury in youths who lost a parent to cancer: nationwide study of the impact of family-related and health-care-related factors.2014In: Psycho-Oncology, ISSN 1057-9249, E-ISSN 1099-1611, Vol. 23, no 9, p. 989-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Self-injury, a manifestation of severe psychological distress, is increased in cancer-bereaved youths. Little is known about the potential influence on the risk for self-injury of factors that could be clinically relevant to and modifiable by the health-care professionals involved in the care of the dying parent.

    METHODS: In a nationwide population-based anonymous study, 622 (73.1%) youths (aged 18-26) who, 6 to 9 years earlier at ages 13 to 16, had lost a parent to cancer answered study-specific questions about self-injury and factors related to the family and parental health care.

    RESULTS: Univariable analyses showed that the risk for self-injury was increased among cancer-bereaved youths who reported poor family cohesion the years before (relative risk [RR], 3.4, 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.5-4.6) and after the loss (RR, 3.3, 95% CI, 2.4-4.4), distrust in the health care provided to the dying parent (RR, 1.7, 95% CI, 1.2-2.4), perceiving poor health-care efforts to cure the parent (RR 1.5, 95% CI, 1.1-2.1) and poor efforts to prevent suffering (RR, 1.6, 95% CI, 1.1-2.4), that at least one of their parents had been depressed or had troubles in life (RR, 1.5, CI, 1.1-2.1) and believing 3 days before the loss that the treatment would probably cure the parent (RR, 1.6, CI, 1.1-2.3). In the total multivariable models, only poor family cohesion before and after the loss remained statistically significantly associated with self-injury.

    CONCLUSION: Poor family cohesion before and after the loss of a parent to cancer is associated with an increased risk of self-injury in teenage children.

    Dignity in life and care: The perspectives of Swedish patients in a palliative care context2019In: International Journal of Palliative Nursing, ISSN 1357-6321, E-ISSN 2052-286X, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 193-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: How patients preserve their sense of dignity in life is an important area of palliative care that remains to be explored. Aims: To describe patients' perspectives of what constitutes a dignified life within a palliative care context. Methods: Twelve palliative care patients were interviewed about their views on living with dignity. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results: What constitutes a dignified life during end-of-life care was captured by the theme 'I may be ill but I am still a human being' and presented under the categories 'preserving my everyday life and personhood', 'having my human value maintained by others through 'coherence' and 'being supported by society at large'. Conclusion: Patients' sense of dignity can be preserved by their own attitudes and behaviours, by others and through public support. Health professionals need to adopt a dignity-conserving approach, for which awareness of their own attitudes and behaviours is crucial.

    The Purpose of this study was to examine what knowledge and which attitudes there are about environmental friendly food in the society. To do so an essay were constructed and distributed to five different working places. Altogether there were 50 essays distributed and 43 were returned. The main result; the respondents think that it is important for people to learn how to consume food in a more environmentally friendly way. The majority of the respondents recognized the eco-label KRAV but the European eco-label and Demeter were not recognized in a less extent. Few of the respondents knew what GMO stands for. Over half of the respondents thought that it is pretty important/important or very important to buy ecological food but only one third of them said that they commonly/always buy ecologic food. Slightly more than one third was shore that they could contribute to an environmental friendly development by consuming ecological food. Conclusion: the respondents know too little about what the eco-labels stands for. Far from everyone is convinced that it actually is environmental friendly to buy environmental friendly food.

    Abstract [en]

    To investigate if the student’s school centeent, and that planning of the school lunch is done from a health perspective.

     

    Qualitative research approach was used, including both interviews and observations, to view the purpose. Evidence was collected using a participating observer, semi constructed questions and structured observation. To focus on specific parts in the material, a directed content analysis was used. One large and one smaller school participated in the study. The staff that participated in the interviews are responsible for planning the schedules for school lunches and the centeent environment at their schools. The observations were conducted first without students in the centeent, and then with students present. The interviews were conducted in conjunction with the educators organizing the scheduling and planning of the centeent. The research problems are

    • Are laws, recommendations and guidelines regarding the pupils' overall environment in the centeent applied according to the respondents?

     

    • Do the respondents experience that laws, recommendations and guidelines regarding the students' pyshical environment in the centeent are applied basen on a health perspective?
    • Are applied laws, recommendations and guidelines observed regarding pupils' psychical environment in canteens, and is it interpreted to be based on a perspective of health?
    • Are pedagogical meals applied according to the respondents and observations?

     

    • Is there a difference between the larger and the smaller school?

     

    It was concluded that none of the respondents had knowledge about the recommendations from the Swedish NFA and the Department of Education regarding the amount of recommended time spent at the table and between what times lunch should be served. The larger school had however been actively addressing concern regarding both noise level and participation.

     

    The size of the school determines the amount of energy needed to spend on subjects concerning noise, planning, participation and the physical environment.

    Tio smutsiga fingrar: en observationsstudie om följsamheten till hygienrutiner på en infektionsavdelning som vårdar patienter med ESBL2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Resistant bacteria are an increasingly large problem within the Swedish health care system. Extended spectrum ß-lactamases (ESBL) are bacteria that produce enzymes capable of breaking down antibiotics, a characteristic which renders them resistant to antibiotics. One of the main causes for the spreading of resistant bacteria is low compliance to hand hygiene procedures.

    The aim of this study was to examine how the health care workers of an infectious disease ward apply the hygiene guidelines that have been established for health care staff. Data was collected through observations in an infectious disease ward in Central Sweden. The results showed that compliance towards hand hygiene procedures was less than 50% within the two staff groups compared. It also showed good compliance to the guidelines for glove use when caring for patients not carrying ESBL, but less compliance when caring for patients with the infection. The difference was statistically significant, i.e. health care staff used gloves more often when caring for patients not carrying ESBL than they did with patients who were carriers. The results showed that that almost 50% of the observed health care workers did not use hand disinfection before contact with patients, whether these were ESBL carriers or not. This indicates that compliance to hand hygiene procedures is not as good as one could hope for.

    Hur påverkar valet mellan greppsula och glidsula sopningen i curling2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Curling is unique in the way that you can affect the path of the curling rock after it´s been released. Depending on the amount of force (Kg) and frequency (strokes/min) of the sweeping motion it affects the path differently. The purpose of this study is to exam if curling players sweeping with gripper on are better regarding sustaining their force and frequency sweeping multiple stones compared to curling players sweeping with sliders on. The report is an experimental study with two groups. The selection consisted of 17 men, aged 16-23 years, regularly playing in one of the two top leagues in Sweden. The participants swept three stones in a row during 15 seconds with 50 seconds rest in between the stones. Equipment used during the collection of data were the (Broom-mate), heartrate monitor (Pm25, Beurer: Germany) and (Borg-RPE-scale). The results from the report suggest that there´s no significant difference between sweeping with gripper or slider on, regarding the ability to apply and sustain their force and frequency during three rounds of sweeping.

    Background: In Sweden it is estimated that there are about 300 000 people living with alcohol addiction today and approximately 700 000 people with harmful use of alcohol, and an estimated 55 000 with drugaddiction. Healthcare staff will meet this large group of patients everywhere.

    Aim: Describing health care professionals attitudes toward patients with addictive disorders and patients experience of the health care professionals attitudes. The aim was also to describe an outline of the selected articles of this group.

    Method: Literature study came from descriptive design consisting of 11 scientific articles. Article search by database Medline thrue PubMed and PsycINFO.

    Main results: The results showed that professional staff statedthey believe patients with addictive disorders self-inflicted their illness and therefore did not deserve any help. It also showed that patients experienced discrimination, abuse, negative attitudes and discrimination in the health care system. According to patient experience this caused many from seeking further treatement.

    Conclusions: Patients with addictive disorders were often met with negative attitudes and discrimination from health care professionals. This negative experience resulted in that many patients refrained from seeking treatemtent. It is therefore important that health care professionals receive professional training and education in addictive disorders in order to view every patient as a separate individual in order to reduce any discriminatory behaviour.
