    Prospective questionnaire study showed that higher self-efficacy predicted longer exclusive breastfeeding by the mothers of late preterm infants.2018In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 107, no 5, p. 799-805Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: An important variable that influences breastfeeding outcomes is how confident a woman feels about her ability to breastfeed successfully at an early stage. We investigated breastfeeding self-efficacy in the mothers of late preterm infants.

    METHODS: This was a prospective, comparative study that focused on mothers who had delivered babies at 34 + 0 to 36 + 6 weeks and were recruited in 2012-2015 from a neonatal intensive care unit and a postnatal ward at a Swedish university hospital. The Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Scale-Short Form (BSES-SF) was used to psychometrically assess the mothers at 40 weeks of postmenstrual age (n = 148) and at three months of corrected age (n = 114).

    RESULTS: The BSES-SF scores were higher in the 87% of mothers that exclusively breastfed when their babies reached 40 weeks (57.1 out of 70) than those who did not (41.4, p < 0.001), indicating better self-efficacy. The figures remained higher in the 68% of exclusive breastfeeding mothers at three months of corrected age (60.9 versus 51.7).

    CONCLUSION: Self-efficacy was an important predictor of the length of breastfeeding in mothers of late preterm infants, and the BSES-SF can be used to detect low self-efficacy that could lead to early breastfeeding cessation.

    Parental stress and toddler behaviour at age 18 months after pre-term birth.2007In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 96, no 2, p. 227-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: To describe the parent's judgement of their own stress and the child's behaviour at 18 months after pre-term birth and if there are any correlations between these assessments, the morbidity in the neonatal period, the gestational age at birth and the occurrence of twin/triplet births. METHOD: Twenty-one mothers and 19 fathers of pre-term infants answered two questionnaires, The Swedish Parenthood Stress Questionnaire (SPSQ) and The Toddler Behaviour Questionnaire (TBQ). RESULTS: Mothers scored somewhat higher than fathers concerning parental stress. Parents with twins/triplets and of children born in gestational week 25-30 felt more stress, though the differences were not statistically significant. High-risk diagnoses did not correlate to any of the dimensions. The parents judged the behaviour of the children similar except that parents of children born in gestational week 25-30 scored significantly higher for intensity/activity (p = 0.002). The correlation between parental stress and judgement of their children's behaviour did not show any significant association except for the dimension regularity in TBQ (p = 0.016). CONCLUSIONS: The mothers' and fathers' assessments of their own stress and of the children's behaviour were similar. Parents of very pre-term children felt more stress and judged the children somewhat delayed in their social behaviours, probably due to their low gestational age.

    Quality of care of the preterm infant--the parent and nurse perspective.2006In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 95, no 1, p. 29-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: To study the subjective opinions about what is important in care at neonatal units and child health centres (CHCs) for premature newborns, and to compare these opinions with the care actually given. SUBJECTS: 21 mothers, 20 fathers and 15 nurses at the neonatal unit, and 21 mothers, 14 fathers and 18 nurses at CHCs. METHODS: A questionnaire on quality of Care from the Patient's Perspective was used. It contained three dimensions: identity-oriented approach, medical-technical competence and socio-cultural atmosphere. Each dimension was evaluated in terms of subjective importance and perceived reality of given care. RESULTS: In general, subjective importance was rated higher than perceived reality both for neonatal care and care at CHCs for the dimensions identity-oriented approach and medical-technical competence. However, higher ratings were given to neonatal care compared to CHCs for medical-technical competence. High-risk diagnoses and very low gestational age in the newborn did not affect the answers. Mothers rated medical-technical competence higher than nurses for neonatal care. Mothers and nurses rated identity-oriented approach higher than fathers for CHCs. CONCLUSION: Although both neonatal care and care at CHCs were highly rated, improvements can be made to fulfil the expectations of parents and nurses. Neonatal units seem to be more efficient in taking care of the special needs of these newborns compared to CHCs. The need for an optimal identity-oriented approach, medical-technical competence and socio-cultural atmosphere could strengthen the possibilities of parents to be confident in their parental role.

    Transition to noncurative end-of-life care in paediatric oncology: A nationwide follow-up in Sweden2013In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 102, no 7, p. 744-748Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: To estimate whether and when children dying from a malignancy are recognized as being beyond cure and to study patterns of care the last weeks of life.

    METHODS: A nationwide retrospective medical record review was conducted. Medical records of 95 children (60% of eligible children) who died from a malignancy 2007-2009 in Sweden were studied.

    RESULTS: Eighty-three children (87%) were treated without curative intent at the time of death. Children with haematological malignancies were less likely to be recognized as being beyond cure than children with brain tumours [relative risks (RR) 0.7; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.6-0.9] or solid tumours (RR 0.8; 0.6-1.0). The transition to noncurative care varied from the last day of life to over four years prior to death (median 60 days). Children with haematological malignancies were treated with a curative intent closer to death and were also given chemotherapy (RR 5.5; 1.3-22.9), transfusions (RR 2.0; 1.0-4.0) and antibiotics (RR 5.3; 1.8-15.5) more frequently than children with brain tumours the last weeks of life.

    CONCLUSION: The majority of children dying from a malignancy were treated with noncurative intent at the time of death. The timing of a transition in care varied with the diagnoses, being closer to death in children with haematological malignancies.

    Children with cancer share their views: tell the truth but leave room for hope.2016In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 105, no 9, p. 1094-1099Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: One in five children diagnosed with cancer will die from the disease. Few studies have focused on how children with cancer want to receive bad news, such as when no more treatment options are available, and that was the aim of this study.

    METHODS: We conducted individual interviews with ten children with cancer, aged seven to 17 years, at a single paediatric oncology unit in central Sweden. Interviews were audiotaped and analysed with systematic text condensation. Bad news was defined as information about a potentially fatal outcome, such as a disease relapse, or information that the treatment administered was no longer working and that there was no more treatment possible.

    RESULTS: All children expressed that they wanted truthful information, and they did not want to be excluded from bad news regarding their illness. They wanted to be informed as positively as possible, allowing them to maintain hope, and in words that they could understand. They also wanted to receive any bad news at the same time as their parents.

    CONCLUSION: Children with cancer want to be fully informed about their disease, but they also wanted it to be relayed as positively as possible so that they could stay hopeful. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

    Sweden and Finland need to improve the support provided for the siblings of children with cancer.2018In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 108, no 2, p. 369-370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Evidence favours sibling support as a standard of care in paediatric oncology (1). Guidelines published in 1999 by the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (2) recommended involving siblings in the ill child's care and supporting siblings during and after the illness. Studies have shown that this is something that siblings want and need (3) and lack of support has increased the risk of long-term psychological distress (4). Sibling support varies between countries.
