    Constructions of various femininities among the oldest old women.2006In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 27, no 10, p. 853-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study forms part of the Umeå 85+ Study, and the aim was to explore various gendered constructions of femininities among the oldest old women. Femininities are seen as various ways of shaping oneself as a woman in relation to the impact of historical, social, and cultural circumstances. Thematic narratives were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Through interpreting these narratives in the light of gender theories, we were able to discern four femininities: "being connected," "being an actor," "living in the shadow of others," and "being alienated." The oldest old women displayed complex outlooks on femininities, and no femininity was interpreted as being in the center related to the other femininities. Further research is needed in order to disclose the complexity of femininities related to factors such as social class, ethnicity, and financial situation among the oldest old, and to acquire a greater knowledge of various femininities.

    Balancing within various discourses--the art of being old and living as a Sami woman.2006In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 27, no 10, p. 873-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this part of the Umeå 85+ Study was to explore how indigenous women narrate their lives and their experience of being old as Sami women. Interviews with 9 old Sami women were analyzed using grounded theory. The categories identified were "reindeer as the basis of life," "longing for significant Sami values," "feeling valued as a Sami woman," and "changing for survival;" these evolved into the core category: "balancing within various discourses-the art of being old and living as a Sami woman." Knowing how to balance provided the ability to make use of available opportunities.

    Tilliten till det svenska samhällskontraktet2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten Tilliten till det svenska samhällskontraktet, skriven av Rebecka Andersenoch Lars Trägårdh, är ett viktigt bidrag från Fores till det alltför begränsade forskningsområdet om tillit.

    Rapportens viktigaste slutsats är att Sveriges tillitsproblem i allra högsta grad är lokal, men riskerar att spilla över på det nationella om problemen förblir olösta. För att stärka lokalsamhälletilliten krävs det av politiken att säkra den fysiska närvaron av välfärdsinstitutioner över hela Sverige. Det gäller i synnerhet polisnärvaron som är central för människors känsla av trygghet. Studieresultaten visar nämligen att svenskarnas uppfattade trygghet och tillit är mycket starkt sammankopplat.

    Tilliten till det svenska samhällskontraktet bidrar även med ett unikt Välfärdstillgänglighetsindex, respektive Välfärdsförtroendeindex, som i sin tur delas upp i fyra underkategorier: sjukvård, utbildning, äldreomsorg och polisväsende/trygghet. Rapporten tillför en översyn av välfärdssverige genom data från 49 kommuner, från Kiruna i norr till Malmö i syd.

    Resultaten visar också att:

    • Pessimismen om tillitens tillstånd är värre än dess faktiska tillstånd
    • Känslan av trygghet har minskat sedan Tillitsbarometern började mäta år 2009 –och det spiller delvis över på lokalsamhälletilliten
    • Upplevd tillgänglighet till välfärdstjänster stämmer inte överens med den faktiska tillgängligheten
    • Faktisk tillgänglighet till välfärdstjänster påverkar inte tilliten – men upplevd tillgänglighet gör det
    • Tilliten till välfärden är generellt lite högre i större tätorter, jämfört med storstäder och landsbygd
    • Tilliten till äldrevården är märkbart högre i mindre tätorter
    • Lokalt förtroende för grundskola och äldrevård påverkar tydligt lokalsamhälletilliten, medan sambandet mellan tilliten till sjukvård och lokalsamhälletilliten är svårare att fastställa
    • Socialdemokratiska kommunstyrelseordföranden uppfattar i högre grad kommunmedborgares förväntningar på välfärden som rimliga, jämfört med Moderaterna och Centerpartiet

    Cirkeldeltagare efter 65: Livskvalitet och aktivt medborgarskap2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What is the significance of participating in study circles? Does the state achieve its objectives for providing financial support to study circles? This evaluation seeks to answer these questions based on register data, focus group interviews and a survey involving circle participants during 2012 who were 65 years or older.

    Nineteen per cent of the population at large is 65 years old or more. In the study circles, 36 per cent were at least 65 years old, which means that almost 240,000 older people participated in study circles in 2012, 70 per cent of whom were women. The proportion of study circle participants in the age group 65+ has increased steadily over the last twenty years. Two-thirds of the older study circle participants were found in ABF and Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan, while this age group was underrepresented in the other eight study associations.

    The study includes an analysis of the state’s objectives for supporting folkbildning. The current objectives have grown out of a process following the introduction of management by objectives in 1991. For most of the century during which the state has provided support for study circles, however, there have been no expressly stated objectives. Nevertheless, there are clear historically entrenched ideas and motives for supporting activities that benefit culture and democracy and for that folkbildning has a role to play both at the individual and the societal level. The analysis summarises the state’s objectives in that these focus on contributing to increasing the opportunity of all citizens to participate in various aspects of social life on an equal and democratic basis.

    The evaluation makes references to research on democracy, citizenship, social capital and civil society. For issues involving older people, the research involves, among other things, successful ageing and activity theory.

    There is a significant distance between the reality of study circles and the state’s objectives in providing them with support. The objectives also extensively overlap one another, something that is discussed and problematised in the report. Bearing these difficulties in mind, the results of the evaluation can be presented broken down into the different objectives.

    The first objective: To support activities that help to strengthen and develop democracy

    The first objective is that the state support for folkbildning should “support activities that help to strengthen and develop democracy” (freely translated). Study circle participants aged 65+ are found to vote in elections to a greater extent (90 per cent) than the same age group in the population as a whole (84 per cent). Study circle participants are also more involved in voluntary work than others in the same age group; they are more active in voluntary organisations, and they use their study circle skills as members of these organisations. Study circle participants who are also involved in voluntary work use their study circle skills to a greater extent than others to influence society. The study cannot provide an answer to what causes what; there is probably some interaction, so that those who are already active have a higher propensity to engage in more, something that is known as ’cumulative citizenship’.

    The study circle ideal of participatory influence and collaborative work within the group has become stronger since a similar survey in 2008. Study circles can be considered as functioning as ’schools of democracy’ and serve as a recruiting ground for civil society organisations. Many study circle participants believe circle participation made them better at working together (30 per cent) and better at listening (40 per cent) – skills that can be said to strengthen their ability to be active citizens. The numbers are even higher for persons with disabilities.

    The second objective: To help make it possible for people to influence their own life situation and create commitment to participate in community development

    The second objective is “to help make it possible for people to influence their own life situation and create commitment to participate in community development” (freely translated). The study shows that study circle participation often leads to increased feelings of happiness and well-being (90 per cent) and some people felt more confident as a person (25 per cent). A sense of community is a strong incentive for participating in study circles, and this in no sense contradicts the fact that participants feel they have gained useful knowledge and skills. Very few people felt that they had been badly treated in the study circle. Many people aged 65+ make new friendships in study circles. It can be said that study circles provide bonding social capital. They create meaning in everyday life and help to make it possible for the individual to feel in control and have power over their own life. Study circles contribute to what can be called “successful ageing”. 

    For at least half of the study circle participants, the study circle, regardless of the subject, acted as an arena for discussions about social issues. This is particularly true in association- and companion circles. Discussions on such matters are not just a safety valve for airing opinions. Almost a third say that these talks influenced their own opinion. The same percentage says that discussions about social issues in study circles also led them to act in contexts outside the study circle.

    The third objective: To help level out educational disparities and raise the level of enlightenment and education in society

    The third objective for the state support for folkbildning is “to help level out educational disparities and raise the level of enlightenment and education in society” (freely translated). For study circle participants aged 65+, study circles have an important function for them to be able to study in a systematic way. Many people in this age group have not previously had that many opportunities to study, and study circles can compensate for deficiencies in schooling, thus helping to raise the level of enlightenment and education in this group.

    Although computers were hardly used in the actual study circles among older people, 40 per cent of the study circle participants say that they have been inspired to use the internet. For learning in general, the study circle leaders play an important role. For most participants, study circle participation has inspired them to learn more about the subject or to join more study circles.

    The fourth objective: To contribute to broadening the interest in culture and increase participation in cultural life

    The fourth objective is “to contribute to broadening the interest in culture and increase participation in cultural life” (freely translated). Two-thirds of the older study circle participants state that study circle participation, regardless of the subject, has positively influenced their creativity. This figure is even higher for persons with disabilities. More than half had been inspired to participate in cultural activities. Of those who said that the study circle, regardless of subject, had given them new skills, which was the majority, one in twenty stated that they made much use of the knowledge and skills they gained in the study circle as practitioners in cultural activities.

    Summary assessment

    The study circle experience is largely positive. Most study circle participants aged 65+ feel they have gained knowledge and skills, they have increased their social network and they have participated in meaningful activities.

    The report illustrates the difficulties in answering the question of whether the state’s objectives have been met. It is unclear, for instance, whether the intention is for these to be fulfilled in every study circle, or simply in study circle activities as a whole.

    In light of this, the overall assessment can be made that the state’s objectives in supporting folkbildning are met in a variety of different ways based on how study circle participants in the age group 65+ perceived their own study circle participation.

    Body and self: a phenomenological study on the ageing body and identity2006In: Journal of Medical Humanities, ISSN 1041-3545, E-ISSN 1573-3645, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 25-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to investigate how older people (60+) experience the ageing body and how these experiences affect aged peoples’ sense of identity. Explorative, open ended, interviews were conducted with 13 respondents between the ages of 63 and 82, recruited from a retired peoples’ organisation, Church organisations, and from the working population. The qualitative data was analysed with a phenomenological method, the so called EPP method, the empirical phenomenological psychological method. The results showed that generally the experience of the ageing body has to do with a changed life world, reactions to this change in terms of body and self, and finding ways to feel at home in this changed situation. Results are presented as three typologies, reflecting the different ways in which the respondents described this general experience: existential awakening, making it good enough, and new possibilities. The results give support to the research that points out the importance of activity for the self esteem of the elderly. According to this study, however, the meaning of “activity” can vary and can have different sources of motivation. Respondents in only one typology expressed frustration over limitations of the ageing body. Respondents exhibited entirely different ways of relating to the fact that death was approaching, which raises questions about how the elderly experience this impending horizon. Finally, the gender differences in this small study were quite clear: all the male respondents belonged to the typology “New possibilities”, raising questions about gender aspects concerning the meaning of freedom, appearance, activity, and self esteem.

    Municipal night nurses' experience of the meaning of caring2009In: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 16, no 5, p. 599-612Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to elucidate municipal night registered nurses’ (RNs) experiences of the meaning of caring in nursing. The research context involved all night duty RNs working in municipal care of older people in a medium-sized municipality located in central Sweden. The meaning of caring in nursing was experienced as: caring for by advocacy, superior responsibility in caring, and consultative nursing service. The municipal night RNs’ experience of caring is interpreted as meanings in paradoxes: ‘being close at distance’, the condition of ‘being responsible with insignificant control’, and ‘being interdependently independent’. The RNs’ experience of the meaning of caring involves focusing on the care recipient by advocating their perspectives. The meaning of caring in this context is an endeavour to grasp an overall caring responsibility by responding to vocational and personal demands regarding the issue of being a RN, in guaranteeing ethical, qualitative and competent care for older people.

    Abstract [en]

    This report introduces, with an empirical focus on Sweden, the field of research that emerges when rural research and civil society research intersects. The texts in the report was presented at a conference titled Civil societies of rural areas and smaller towns in 2021. The report is intended as an introduction to current research on this theme and we believe it can be interesting reading for both those active within civil society organisations and those active within authorities, regions and municipalities who relate to rural civil society in their work.

    The report opens with a chapter that gives an overview of how civil society research and rural research has developed over time and discusses the need of research in the intersection of these two fields, research that focuses on the civil societies of rural areas. The other chapters present current research on rural civil societies, the research included covers a wide spectrum of different methods and different theoreticial perspectives.

    Following the introduction, the report presents research that describes differences and similarities in civil society engagement between urban and rural areas in Sweden, deals with how access to service also can affect trust in institutions and discusses the importance of emotions in relation to civil society engagement and community development. Furthermore, an overall picture of the state of knowledge about social innovation as a response to rural societal challenges is presented, with a particular focus on the role of civil society and its cooperation with other actors.

    Based on a study of civil society projects financed with public funds one chapter discusses how these financial resources are transformed into intangible resources for the benefit of the local community. The report also contains chapters that discuss civil society’s alternative educational paths that start from places’ own conditions, social movements for sustainability in the Swedish-Sámi countryside, and a final chapter that discusses how citizenship is reshaped when residents in rural areas and smaller towns increasingly need to rely on civil society’s solutions in order to have access to local everyday services and basic infrastructure.

    Erstabacken: en studie av ett medicinskt boende för svårt sjuka hemlösa2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    När företrädare för psykiatri, socialtjänst, beroendevård och somatisk vård år 2002 fick ett politiskt sanktionerat uppdrag att utveckla samarbetsformer runt personer i avsaknad av eget boende – framför allt uteliggare och personer hänvisade till härbärgen och akutboenden – började de inventera var behovet av ett sådant samarbete var som störst. Genom inventeringen utkristalliserades en grupp av svårt sjuka personer som sällan fick vård för sina allvarliga sjukdomar och som lämnades utan möjligheter att leva sin sista tid och att dö på ett värdigt sätt. Som ett resultat av detta politiska uppdrag öppnades Erstabacken våren 2005, ett medicinskt stödboende särskilt anpassat för att ta emot svårt sjuka hemlösa. Genom en samfinansiering från Stockholms läns landsting och Stockholms stad driver Ersta diakoni detta boende som både erbjuder hemsjukvård och vård i livets slutskede till en synnerligen utsatt grupp av Stockholms invånare.

    Den här rapporten presenterar en studie som granskar Erstabacken under verksamhetens tre första år. Studien belyser framför allt specifika drag i verksamheten som kombinationen av kvalificerade medicinska och kvalificerade sociala insatser samt kombinationen av kortare hemsjukvårdande insatser och vård i livets slutskede. Den belyser dessutom de svårigheter det möter att vårda svårt sjuka personer med ett pågående missbruk men även svårigheterna att fullfölja det som var det ursprungliga uppdraget – att med den hemlöses situation i fokus samordna insatserna från såväl psykiatri och socialtjänst som beroendevård och somatisk vård.

    Supervisor experiences of supervising nursing staff in the care of older people2008In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 16, no 7, p. 876-882Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim To describe supervisors’ experiences of supervising nursing staff who care for older people in order to develop an understanding of the opportunities and limitations involved in supervision. Background Little is known of what group supervision of nursing staff means for the supervisor, particularly in regards to care of the old. Methods A reflective life-world research approach, based upon phenomenological epistemonology was used. Two supervisors with 2 years experience of supervising nursing staff caring for older people were interviewed. Conclusions Results point to the need for support for supervisors in order to enable them to develop their supervisory abilities and skills. Implications for nursing management Support is of crucial importance for both the ability to supervise and the quality of supervision.

    Caring for elderly patients: a longitudinal study of Swedish nursing students' narratives1998In: Health care in later life, ISSN 1358-7390, Vol. 3, no 4, p. 258-271Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studied how Swedish nursing students developed their perceptions of caring for older adults during their 3 years in nursing education. Interviews were audiotaped at the end of each academic year with 27 students from three colleges of nursing. In addition, 26 of these students wrote diaries during the clinical part of the course, in the second and third years. The interviews and diaries were analyzed using the phenomenological hermeneutic method, which is based on the idea that an interpretation of people's narrated, lived experiences is focused on the utterance meaning (Ricoeur, 1976). Four themes of caring emerged: respect for individual patients, responsibility for patients' well-being, sympathy with patients, and empathy with patients. Three themes emerged that were connected with impediments to caring: students' vulnerability, frustration and powerlessness in difficult situations, and ethically difficult situations. Findings revealed a development in the students' perceptions of caring as they proceeded through their education, moving from a naive, caring perspective, via a second-year stage of deeper relationships with patients, into a third-year organizational perspective, where they used their gained knowledge and experiences in taking responsibility for providing optimum care. Two students' narratives are used to illustrate the interpretations.

    A comparison of curricular approaches of care of the aged in Swedish and US nursing programs2007In: Nurse Education in Practice, ISSN 1471-5953, E-ISSN 1873-5223, Vol. 7, no 6, p. 358-364Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an era of global aging, the steady increase in older people in Sweden and the United States is having a direct effect on nursing practice, presenting unprecedented opportunities and challenges in nursing education. The aim of this study was to highlight differences and similarities in curricular approaches to care of aged in Swedish and US baccalaureate nursing programs. The Swedish response rate was 100% (N=26); the US response rate was 36% (N=202). The results, which compare curricula approaches, have implications for nursing education in Sweden and the United States. Both include stand-alone and integrated courses on care of the aged, geriatrics and gerontology. Differences are noted in the percentage of programs that include care of the age in their curricula and the clinical education settings. Results of this study add to the sparse body of knowledge of cross-cultural nursing research on curricular approaches to geriatrics and gerontology, high-light similarities and differences in nursing education in two countries and invite dialogue among nurse educators. Future research is needed to address curricular issues on the aged population and cross cultural perspectives.

    Temporary confusion: a fearful experience2002In: Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 1351-0126, E-ISSN 1365-2850, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 339-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Older people admitted to hospital often develop acute temporary confusion. Earlier studies have focused on problems in providing care to the confused, causes of the confusion and the key aspects of caring. The aims of this study were to describe, from a nursing perspective, how older people experienced the phenomenon of temporary confusion and to describe the older peoples’ reasoning when they described their experiences. Interviews with five older informants who had recovered from their confusional state were conducted and analysed using the phenomenological method. Two phenomena were studied, ‘being temporarily confused’ and ‘reasoning about experiences of temporary confusion’, each was found to be represented by four inter-related constituents. The phenomena can be understood as aspects of suffering and power imbalance between staff and older people.

    Registered nurses’ experiences of caring for the elderly in different health-care areas2001In: International Journal of Nursing Practice, ISSN 1322-7114, E-ISSN 1440-172X, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 229-236Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Caring for elderly patients is an undertaking for a majority of Swedish nurses in different health-care sectors. The purpose of the study was to understand how nurses experienced the meaning of caring for elderly patients after 2 years as Registered Nurses. Interviews were conducted with 20 nurses 2 years after graduation. Data were analysed with a phenomenological–hermeneutic method and resulted in two themes: (i) providing the elderly with a sense of trust; and (ii) commitment to elderly patients. Each theme was made up of four subthemes, expressing both positive and negative aspects. Caring for the elderly means that the core of caring is in focus. Nurses need a supportive context for their care of the elderly, especially when they experience that they or their staff cannot provide the optimal quality of care for the patients.

    Living Amidst Consolation in the Presence of God Perceptions of Consolation Among the Oldest Old: The Umeå 85+ Study.2007In: Journal of Religion, Spirituality & Aging, ISSN 1552-8030, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 3-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes how 90-year-olds and older people perceive consolation. Qualitative Content analysis of 49 interviews revealed four categories: consolation by God; consolation from others; consolation from self; and consolation from things, which were present in two themes. The theme "Living amidst consolation in the presence of God" was a core theme and expresses consolation as self-evident and based on a relation to God, others, self, and things. The theme "Seeking consolation," expresses consolation from self, others, things, or God. Interviewees in some cases regretted that they had no religious faith. Reasonably, most interviewees referred to religious consolation, as religion had been so closely connected with the word "consolation" all their lives. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

    National Human Research Ethics: A Preliminary Comparative Case Study of Germany, Great Britain, Romania, and Sweden2016In: Ethics & Behavior, ISSN 1050-8422, ESSN: 1532-7019, Vol. 26, no 7, p. 586-606Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although international research is increasing in volume and importance, there remains a dearth of knowledge on similarities and differences in “national human research ethics” (NHREs), that is, national ethical guidelines (NEGs), Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), and research stakeholder’ ethical attitudes and behaviors (EABs). We begin to address this situation by reporting upon our experiences in conducting a multinational study into the mental health of children who had a parent/carer in prison. The study was conducted in 4 countries: Germany, Great Britain, Romania, and Sweden. Data on NHREs were gathered via a questionnaire survey, two ethics-related seminars, and ongoing contact between members of the research consortium. There was correspondence but even more so divergence between countries in the availability of NEGs and IRBs and in researcher’ EABs. Differences in NHREs have implications particularly in terms of harmonization but also for ethical philosophy and practice and for research integrity.

    Reflective practice in nursing care: embedded assumptions in qualitative studies 2007In: International Journal of Nursing Practice, ISSN 1322-7114, E-ISSN 1440-172X, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 151-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Qualitative nursing researchers have long recognized that reflective practice (RP) seems to be a valuable tool in nursing care. The aim of the present meta-study was to analyse current qualitative research on RP in nursing care, in order to create and synthesize the knowledge and the understanding of registered nurses' RP. Using a meta-study synthesis approach, embedded assumptions were identified in qualitative studies that have influenced the way researchers have interpreted and made sense of RP in nursing care. Despite empirical focus in research on RP in nursing care, it was found that assumptions about RP were predominantly based on theory. The reflective movement within the practice of nursing care has mainly a constructivist epistemology, based on learning from experience. The individual nurse's RP capability is essential in providing and improving ethical and holistic nursing care.

    Supportive leadership in Swedish community night nursing2010In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 18, no 7, p. 822-831Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim The aim of the present study was to examine the support night nurses' give to staff in community night nursing. Background Studies have shown that support given to staff is one of night registered nurses' (RNs') experiences of the meaning of caring. This support, that community RNs display for staff in night-time care, is sparsely described. Methods All community night-duty nurses in a medium-sized municipal in Sweden participated in the present study. Thematic content analysis was used to analyse data from observations. Results The support given by RNs to staff is described using three themes: (1) a conditional supporting stance, (2) preparing propitious conditions for caring and (3) confidence in the abilities of individual staff members and adaptation to their individual needs. The results reveal that RNs consider support to staff in terms of nursing leadership . Conclusions Out of 'concern for the staff' the RNs try to be there for them, which corresponds to nursing leadership. Such concern also arises from the RNs' awareness that by giving support to staff this affects the staffs' caring for older people. Implications for nursing management The current municipal social care organization of community nursing of older people in which RNs have extensive responsibilities with insufficient control, is a working condition with a risk for decreased quality of care and a high risk for work-related stress syndrome.
