    ”Jag behövs på flera ställen samtidigt” Sjuksköterskors upplevelser av etisk stress vid vård av patienter i livets slutskede på en geriatrisk vårdavdelning: En kvalitativ studie2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Ethical stress implies stress related to ethical challenges. In geriatric care there are also patients in their end of life, requiring palliative care. Palliative care is a term characterized by a comprehensive view of the human being. Geriatric nurse’s encounter ethical challenges where they need to take in to consideration both this comprehensive view alongside other factors and tasks, all demanding their presence and attention. This could ultimately lead to ethical stress.

    Aim: The aim was to describe nurses' experiences with ethical stress in care for patients in palliative care in a geriatric ward.

    Methods: A qualitative approach was used. Data were collected through individual interviews with nine nurses working in a geriatric ward. The interviews were then analyzed based on a qualitative content analysis.

    Results: Four categories were formed which describes the experience of ethical stress. These categories are: feelings of inadequacy and failure, feelings of powerlessness and frustration and lack of knowledge and experience and a lack of consensus between health professionals and relatives.

    Discussions: The result concurs with previous research about ethical stress. Good communication improves the cooperation between different personnel categories, which leads to better quality of care as well as care in general. The conclusion is, further discussions about the nurse’s restricted room for action, the need to further improve the ability to understand their responsibilities including the meaning and experience of palliative care.

    Ett sår som förändrat mig: En litteraturöversikt om patienters upplevelser av att leva med ett svårläkt sår.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Chronic wounds are an increasing problem in society because we live longer, and the problem is more common when we get older. The criteria of a chronic wound are that it has not healed within six weeks. There are several underlying reasons for this type of wounds; malignancy and venous insufficiency are two examples. A nurse should have evidence based knowledge to be able to provide good care for patients suffering from this type of wounds.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to describe the patients’ experience of living with malignant wounds or venous leg ulcers.

    Method: A literature study has been carried out using Friberg’s method. Ten scientific articles used in the literature study were qualitative. The databases that were used in data collection were Academic Search Complete, Cinahl Complete and PubMed.

    Results: The results are summarized into four main themes: Perception of symptoms, A changed identity, Social isolation and Live with a chronic wound. The study showed that the wounds had a negative impact on the patients’ lives and caused them an altered body image. The symptoms were experienced as bothersome and caused anxiety, fear and shame. That led to social isolation. Participants used a variety of coping strategies to manage their situation to manage with their daily life.

    Discussion: The results were analyzed on the basis of Jocalyn Lawler’s somology theory that describes how a patient may experience a nursing situation and how the nurse can promote a caring encounter when seeing the whole patient.

    Patientens upplevelse av tvångsåtgärder inom psykiatrisk omvårdnad2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: De flesta patienter som vårdas i Sverige gör det på frivillig basis, men en liten del av dessa vårdas under tvång. Dessa patienter återfinns i alla hälso- sjukvårdens verksamheter, men är kraftigt överrepresenterade i psykiatrisk omvårdnad, ofta med diagnoserna bipolärsjukdom och i psykotiska tillstånd.

    Syfte: Att beskriva patienternas upplevelse av tvångsåtgärder i psykiatrisk omvårdnad.

    Metod: Författarna har gjort en litteraturöversikt innehållande nio vetenskapliga artiklar, som har tolkas, bearbetats, analyseras och använd i resultatet. Under sammanställningen fann författarna elva olika inriktningar i upplevelsen av tvångsvårds om kunde underkategoriseras de tre komponenterna i KASAM. Dessa var Begriplighet; Förståelse, förlorad självkänsla, Hanterbarhet; en nödvändig handling, maktmissbruk, rädsla. Meningsfullhet; acceptans, en onödig överreaktion, ett avslutat kapitel och bra erfarenheter.

    Teoretisk referensram: Under arbetet har författarna utgått ifrån Antonovskys teori om KASAM och dess tre huvudkomponenter.

    Resultat: I resultatet fann författarna att patienternas upplevelser av tvångsåtgärder till stor del var beroende av patientens KASAM. Kommunikationen mellan vårdare och patient samt rutiner i organisationen hade i flertalet fall negativ effekt på patientens upplevelse. Patienter med högt KASAM hade trotts detta förmåga att se positiva effekter av tvångsvården, detta till skillnad från de med sänkt KASAM som ville lägga upplevelsen bakom sig.

    Diskussion: Relationen mellan de upplevelser som identifierats utifrån den teoretiska referensramen KASAM diskuteras. Betydelsen av känslor, upplevelser, förhållande mellan olika teman som risker och resurser.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: A multicultural society can be a challenge for. Trust is crucial for building a well functioning relationship between a patient and a caretaker.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe nurses' experiences with promoting trust in immigrant patients with psychosis.

    Methods: Five nurses were interviewed with the help of semi-structured interviews. The participants work in psychiatric care units in Stockholm. A qualitative design was used for this study.

    Results: The results are described in four categories and two subcategories that are raised in the study: the importance of communication for creating trust in psychiatric care, with the subcategory interpreted conversation; the importance of body language for trust; cultural differences regarding mental illnesses, with the subcategory cultural differences in describing illnesses; and the signification of relatives in creating at trustful meeting. The results show that language difficulties is a barrier for communication to promote trust in psychiatric patients who are immigrants and suggests that empathy and responsiveness are the foundations for promoting trust.

    Discussions: The results suggests that non-verbal communication becomes important when language is not enough. The study also describes deficiencies in knowledge, education and approach in the meetings with mentally ill immigrant patients and the need for transcultural training in health care.

    Sjuksköterskans bedömning av smärta2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Sjuksköterskan har en central roll i vården av patienter   med smärta och ansvarar för skattning, dokumentation och behandling.   Förekomsten av smärta är ett vanligt problem inom vården.

     

    Syfte: Att beskriva hur sjuksköterskan bedömer smärta   hos patienter.

     

    Metod: Litteraturöversikt baserad på tio vetenskapliga artiklar.

     

    Resultat: Sammanställningen av artiklarna resulterade i fyra teman, sjuksköterskans användning av bedömningsinstrument vid bedömning av smärta,   sjuksköterskan och patientens verbala kommunikation vid bedömning   av smärta, sjuksköterskans observation av patientens och dennes   vitalparametrar vid bedömning av smärta och sjuksköterskan bedömer smärta   genom att ta hjälp från tidigare erfarenhet av liknande situationer.

     

    Diskussion: En icke fullgod smärtbedömning kan orsaka ett lidande för patienten och   det är därmed viktigt att sjuksköterskan låter patienten stå i fokus vid smärtbedömningen.

    Hur uppfattar kuratorer sin roll i den psykiatriska vården och hur väl förberedda kände de sig för uppgiften: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om kuratorer inom psykiatrin2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract

    I Sverige saknar kuratorer som yrkesgrupp ännu en specifik legitimation och därmed en skyddad yrkestitel. Det kan därför förväntas att kuratorsrollen är diffust definierad på många arbetsplatser. Denna C-uppsats har haft som ambition att klarlägga den professionella roll som yrkesverksamma kuratorer inom den psykiatriska vården i Sverige uppfattar som sin viktigaste. Syftet var även att inhämta kunskap om vilken formell utbildning, tidigare erfarenhet och personliga egenskaper som psykiatrikuratorerna anser vara mest värdefulla för sina faktiska arbetsuppgifter, liksom att utreda i vilken utsträckning de upplever speciella situationer som betingade av att klienterna/patienterna har en psykiatrisk problematik. 

    En kvalitativ intervjustudie med öppna, semistrukturerade frågor fick ligga till grund för undersökningen, som omfattade fem yrkesverksamma psykiatrikuratorer i Stockholm. Teoretiska utgångspunkter har hämtats från rollteori och teoribildning kring den terapeutiska alliansen. 

    På basen av intervjusvaren dras slutsatsen att intervjudeltagarna mestadels känt sig något bristfälligt förberedda för kuratorsrollen i den psykiatriska vården men att de efterhand, genom en god socialisationsprocess, själva kunnat definiera och inta en för patientvården lämplig roll och funktion på arbetsplatsen. Värdefull information kunde inhämtas om vad som för denna specifika kuratorsroll bedömdes som mest ändamålsenliga förkunskaper, utbildningar, tidigare erfarenheter av socialt arbete, allmän livserfarenhet och personliga egenskaper. Likaså kunde studien kartlägga erfarenheter av förutsättningarna för en terapeutisk allians med psykiskt sjuka klienter/patienter, inte minst sådana från andra kulturella bakgrunder. 

    Vidare forskning föreslås på sistnämnda problemområde.

    Begreppet Acceptans som beskrivning av förändring i psykodynamisk psykoterapi2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is a debate in psychotherapy research on how change takes place. Accep-tance is described in relational theory by Safran and Muran (2000) as the heart of change in psychotherapy. It seems acceptance has not been studied as a common factor in research of psychotherapy. The question at issue is: How can the process of change in psychodynamic psychotherapy be described using the concept of acceptance? Have the patient reached an increased level of accep-tance, what kind of acceptance is it and how is it linked to change? Does accep-tance appear in such a way in the interviews that one can see it as a common factor of importance? This study has a qualitative approach, where interviews with six adults have been analyzed using a thematic approach. Five main themes emerged: a) Acceptance of more aspects of self, b) Acceptance of personal limits, c) Acceptance of responsibility and agency, d) Acceptance of difference, e) The therapist's acceptance of the patient. The result shows that not all change is or can be described in terms of acceptance but it indicates that acceptance can be seen as an important underlying mechanism that contributes to change. It also indicates that the study of acceptance as measure of outcome could contribute to studying structural change after psychotherapy but further research would be needed.

    Metodfokus på Affekt; Hur känns det?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Evidence-based psychotherapeutic methods compete with each other, while meta-analysis have shown that variability due to different methods related to outcome is remarkably low. In this qualitative study six former patients were interviewed about experiences of method and technique in Affect-focused therapy, with a slight overweight towards unsatisfactory experiences. Responses were analysed and categorised in emergent themes. Methodological focus on affect showed to be a much appreciated, as well as insufficient, element. Alongside positive experiences or summaries of therapy, methodological frames were felt to be at times restrictive, even invalidating, as far as not allowing focus on what was felt to be the more predominant need. These needs were varied and individual; e.g. more/less of undetermined space free of preconceptions, more/less focus on affect, more direction forward, or more space for existentially oriented aspects. Results found good support in previous research except for a strong validation of therapists, even when aspects of therapy had been severely problematic. Experiences of applied method differed extremely among participants. The study highlighted lack of relation between method and outcome, and that positive regard of therapy and alliance were not synonymous with good outcome. Prominent themes were quality of methodological focus on affect and of therapeutic relationship, basic humanistic values, and individual factors of variance.

    Future research was suggested to focus on integration of methods, on therapists’ common factors, as well as on issues of power in the therapeutic relationship.

    Patienters upplevelser av information för att stötta egenvård vid diabetes typ 2 i Sverige: En litteraturöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Type 2 diabetes is a disease that is increasing worldwide and it is associated with living habits. Treatment of type 2 diabetes may or may partially be medical, but a large part of the treatment consists of lifestyle changes and self care. To change living habits can be difficult and requires both knowledge and involvement of the patient in order to achieve good quality of life. The nurse has an important role in order to support the patient in the subjective experience of living with a chronic disease.

    Aim: The aim was to describe about the patients’ experiences of information to support self-care in diabetes type 2 in Sweden.

    Method: This literature review is based on ten scientific articles identified through searches in the database Cinahl Complete. The articles were analysed according to Friberg’s method.

    Results: Patients' experiences of information to support self-management of type 2 diabetes compiled into two main themes: “Patients 'view of type 2 diabetes," with the subthemes: "Misunderstanding" and "Lifestyle changes”. And the second main theme: "Patients' needs for information" with the subtheme: "Need for support".

    Discussion: The results of the literature review are discussed in a discussion of results and method where the method's advantages and disadvantages are discussed. The discussion is related to Orem’s self-care theory and linked to the consensus concept of human. The theory emphasizes care system that can be helpful to understand the patients' need for support for self-care. This can be used as a tool for nurses in the meeting with patients to support their selfcare.

    Patienters upplevelse av att vårdas i isolering: en litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Isolation care may be necessary when a patient is carrying infection or is being inflicted with disease that causes deficit immune system. Being isolated means that the patient is in a confined space and may stay only there. Even in ancient times, people discovered the importance of isolating people carrying an infection from the rest of society. According to the Infectious Diseases Act, patients should be isolated in order to reduce the spread of infection both from the patient to the surroundings as well as the opposite. Isolation care can be psychologically stressful for some patients. They feel alone and abandoned, which eventually leads to suffering for patients. The increased prevalence of multidrug-resistant bacteria has set high standards in health care because it is challenging to care for patients isolated to reduce the spread. Aim: The aim was to illustrate patients’ experience of being nursed in isolation. Methods: a literature review with qualitative approach based on ten health science articles. The articles were analyzed using Friberg (2012) study analysis. Results: The literature review revealed four themes; difference experience of being isolated in an alien environment and needs of communication and information, feelings of alienation, the need for the presence and proximity of kin and staff. The results showed that patients experienced isolation care both negative and positive, depending on whether patients had previous experience of isolation care and the information they received from staff. Common in all patients was that isolation care contributed to a feeling of loneliness. The results showed that patients lacked staff attendance and touch which had great significance for the relief of the negative feelings. Discussion: The discussion highlights the importance of the patients socializing with other people, patient participation, and the importance of information and communication. With the nurse's awareness of patients' experience of isolation care he/she can help the patient and provide good care.

    Livskvalitet hos personer med övervikt eller fetma som har genomgått bariatriska operationer: En litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Obesity is one of the greatest public health problems in the world. Obesity is a product of multiple genetic, socio-cultural, socio-economic and environmental factors and leads to physical, mental and social illness. This has been shown to have a negative impact on these individuals' quality of life since they often face bias and experience limitations in their daily life. As a consequence of this epidemic, bariatric surgeries have become a common and effective treatment alternative. Aim: To describe the quality of life and how it changes over time in overweight and obese patients treated with bariatric surgery. Method: A literature review based on ten scientific studies, one qualitative study and nine quantitative studies. These studies were obtained from the databases Cinahl Complete, PubMed, ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source. The studies were reviewed, summarized, analyzed and compiled in tables that contained similarities and differences. Results: The outcomes have been divided into three themes; Different ways of measuring quality of life, factors influencing changes in quality of life and changes across time. Shortterm outcomes show significant improvements in all domains of quality of life after the surgery due to massive weight loss. However, the long-term outcomes in this review show that weight loss in some cases stops and that the participants may even gain weight, which negatively affect the changes of the psychosocial quality of life. The outcomes show improvements in comparison with the participants' preoperative values, but they do not achieve the standard values of the general population. Discussions: This review’s outcomes are discussed on the basis of the concept of health in the nursing meta-paradigm in relation to the concept of quality of life. In conclusion, an important gain with these surgeries is that, thanks to a massive weight loss, have greater comorbidities improved or resolved completely, the psychosocial quality of life has improved due to the fact that patients experience fewer restrictions in their social life. This means that these surgeries resulted in improvements in all physical, psychological and social domains of quality of life. However in order to maintain these positive effects, considerable lifestyle changes and a continued committed post-operative work are required from the patients and the health care providers.

    Självkännedom: inom utbildning2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Inledning: För många yrken ska studenten efter avslutad utbildning "visa självkännedom och empatisk förmåga". Detta finns formulerad för en rad yrkesexamina. Fokus för uppsatsen var att undersöka lärandemålet "självkännedom" i relation till utbildning.

    Frågeställningar: Studien ville undersöka socionomstudenters upplevelse av ökad självkännedom efter avslutad utbildning inom socionomprogrammet och ökad självkännedom i relation till sin kommande yrkesroll. Studien ville också belysa på vilket sätt ökad självkännedom uppnåddes i utbildningen.

    Metod: Studien hade en kvalitativ och deskriptiv ansats och var explorativ. Åtta socionom-studenter som avslutade sin utbildning år 2010 intervjuades. Tolkningen av materialet har skett utifrån psykodynamiska teorier.

    Resultat: Studien visade att självkännedom upplevdes öka i utbildningen med hjälp av teori-studier, i studiegruppen och i de färdighetstränande inslagen. Självkännedom uppnåddes via relationen till andra och starka affekter som ledde till insikter och upplevelsen av ökad självkännedom. Erfarenheterna från utbildningssituationen låg sedan till grund för ökad självkännedom i yrkesutövningen som socionom. Studien visade att psykodynamiska utvecklingsteorier/inlärningsteorier kunde tillämpas inom vuxenutbildning.

    Diskussion: Utbildningen upplevdes som akademiserad av respondenterna och flera gav uttryck för att de i utbildningen saknade modeller för sin kommande yrkesroll i socialt arbete. Privata tankar och reaktioner som väcktes i undervisningen bearbetades främst i den informella studiegruppen och det egna nätverket. Man beskrev ett visst avstånd till lärare och studie-kamrater för att hitta egna förhållningssätt till sina upplevda erfarenheter.

    En pågående inre kamp: En litteraturöversikt om upplevelsen av egenvård vid diabetes typ 22013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease that is increasing worldwide. The treatment is based on lifestyle-related measures that often mean a change in diet and exercise habits. Self-management in chronic illness is described as a process that is influenced by various factors. Nurses have a key role in supporting the person in this process based on each individual's needs and experiences. In order to provide adequate support, it is important to get a better understanding of the experience of self-management in type 2 diabetes.

    Aim: The aim was to describe the experience of self-management among people with type 2 diabetes.

    Methods: A literature review based on ten scientific articles. All articles were qualitative and found in the databases CINAHL and PubMed. The articles were analyzed and the similarities were highlighted and created new themes.

    Results: The overall theme representing the result is the experience of an inner struggle. The theme describes how self-management is experienced as a constant struggle between the disease demands and what is valuable in life. The sub-theme, the experience of integrating self-management in daily life, affects the self-management process. The remaining sub-themes describe the barriers to and facilitators of integrating self-management in daily life.

    Discussions: The authors discuss the difficulty of integrating new habits in life and what influences the process. The discussion includes autonomy, view of the future and the need to gain control. The discussion also relates to Meleis' Transition Theory.

    Icke-verbal kommunikation i vården: mellan vårdpersonal och patient2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Det finns två olika typer av kommunikation; verbal kommunikation och icke-verbal kommunikation. Den icke verbala-kommunikationen rör allt som inte har med ord att göra exempelvis kroppsspråk, beröring och ögonkontakt. Studier visar en brist på icke-verbal kommunikation i akuta vårdsituationer samt att patienter önskar mer icke-verbal kommunikation från vårdpersonalen. Det är även viktigt att vårdpersonal ser patienter som unika individer.

    Syfte: Syftet meddenna studie är att beskriva hur icke-verbal kommunikation mellan vårdpersonal och patient uttrycks i vården.

    Metod: Detta examensarbete är baserat på en litteraturstudie där relevant litteratur för syftet sökts i diverse databaser. Tio stycken artiklar valdes ut som alla berörde den icke-verbala kommunikationen mellan vårdpersonal och patient.

    Resultat: Tre teman kunde identifieras; Rädsla och osäkerhet hos vårdpersonal, Vårdpersonalens personliga förutsättningar och Beröring – en balansgång mellan genuinitet och förtryck. Studien visar att det finns en oro och rädsla hos vårdpersonal för att göra fel och att missförstånd ska uppstå genom den icke-verbala kommunikationen. För att kunna bygga en vårdrelationmåste vårdpersonalen se patienten som en unik individ samt ha kunskap om icke-verbal kommunikation. Även vårdpersonalens personlighet spelar en roll i när den icke-verbala kommunikationen används.

    Diskussion: Enligt omvårdnadsteoretikern Joyce Travelbee genomgår vårdpersonalen och patienten flera faser för att kunna skapa en människa-till-människa relation. Det är därför viktigt att identiteter får framträda både hos vårdpersonalen och patienten. Att använda sig av icke-verbal kommunikation skapar även arbetstillfredsställelse både kort- och långsiktigt hos vårdpersonalen.

    Sjuksköterskans upplevelse av att vårda i hemmet2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Many countries are facing a changing demographic where the number of elderly people will increase. Parallel to this development there will be a rising demand for home-based care where more elderly people want to be cared for in their own home. Home-based care is often described as the best kind of caring for many elderly people. Earlier research has shown that nurses have both negative and positive experiences when it comes to home-based care.

    Aim:

    The aim of this study is to describe the nurses’ experiences of home-based care.

    Methods:

     Interviews were performed with eight registered nurses who had experience of caring for people at their homes. The interviews were analyzed with qualitative content analysis inspered by Greneheim and Lundman (2004).

    Results:

    The result showed that the nurses who participated in the study stated that they strive to do their utmost for the patients although they sometimes can be prevented from doing that. Tre categories with ten sub-categories were generated from the interviews. The categories describe nurses’ experiences of caring for patients of their homes: Nursing at home, To be professional and Teamwork.

    Discussions:

    Based on the study the nursing context and the nurses’ approach are described as important factors in the meeting with the patient. Nursing context and the nurses’ approach are important because they invite to participation and support the patients’ autonomy. This results in that the space is given great importance where the nurse experiences a double role: As a professional and as a guest in the patients’ own home. This results in that the nurse experiences the feeling of freedom and the feeling of inadequacy.

    Livskvalitet hos personer med cancersjukdom inom palliativ vård2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Background: Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and accounted for 7.6 million deaths, about 13% of all deaths, in 2008. Several factors can affect patients' quality of life such as physical and psychological symptoms, relationship to people around and the environment. In palliative care professionals need to have good knowledge in order to improve patient quality of life and to give them as good a life as possible in the final stages of life.

    Aim: The purpose of this overview study is to describe the experiences of quality of life in patients with incurable cancer.

    Method: We conducted an overview study that was based on ten scientific articles. All articles are qualitative studies, from the year 1995 - 2011, and are from Sweden, Finland, UK, Canada and the USA. Qualitative analysis was used to group the various themes and subthemes for overview study purpose. As a theoretical framework served Katie Erikson’s theory of caring, suffering, and health.

    Results: Four themes with a total of eleven subthemes were distinguished; the importance of relationships for the perceived quality of life, experiences that affect quality of life positively, experiences that affect quality of life negatively and impact of care environment on perceived quality of life. The first theme includes three subthemes: relationship to family and friends, higher power and personnel. The second theme includes four subthemes: to feel hope, to accept, to take responsibility and to be independent. The third theme includes two subthemes: to feel anxiety, shame and guilt, and to lose functions and roles. In the final theme, there are two subthemes: to being cared for at home and to be cared for in health care.

    Discussion: The method was discussed including the selection of keywords, databases, and how we came up with relevant articles on the result including manual search. The results were discussed on how patients' experiences affect their quality of life from the point of view of Katie Erikson's theories of caring, suffering and health. The fact that patients experience high or low quality of life depends on various factors connected to how patients themselves experience their health and the reactions from people around them.

    Keywords: Cancer, quality of life, palliative care, experience

    Upplevelser av att leva med schizofreni2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Schizofreni är en allvarlig psykisk sjukdom kännetecknad av svikt i kognitiva och sociala förmågor. Det råder otillräckliga kunskaper i bemötandet av personer med schizofreni. Deras subjektiva upplevelser blir oftast åsidosatta fastän de spelar en viktig roll i vården och personers liv. En bättre förståelse för personers subjektiva dimensionen kan bidra till ett bättre bemötande och minska lidande för personer med schizofreni.

    Syfte: Syftet för denna studie är att undersöka subjektiva upplevelser hos personer med schizofreni.

    Metod: Nio kvalitativa artiklar som hittades i databaserna PsycINFO och CINAHL bearbetades med metasyntes, gemensamma teman kunde identifieras.

    Resultat: Personer med schizofreni upplever en komplex blandning av upplevelser såsom tillbakadragande, ensamhet, relationsproblem, hopplöshet, kaos och förvirring som effekter av sjukdomen. Trygghet och gemenskap kan bidra till en positiv utveckling av hälsoprocesserna.

    Diskussion: Livsvärlden ligger till grund för hur personer med schizofreni upplever sin sjukdom och livssituation. Upplevelser av negativa symtom hos personer med schizofreni kräver mer forskning. Bemötandet av personer med schizofreni kan genom fortsatt forskning och utbildning förbättras.

    Sjuksköterskors attityder till och upplevelser av att vårda personer med emotionellt instabil personlighetsstörning2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Patients with borderline personality disorder represent a large group in healthcare who are struggling with painful emotions in life. Caring should be based on strengthening health processes by focusing on the patients, but research made by the patient's perspective has shown that this population rather felt that their health processes was counteracted, than promoted. The patients felt that the nurses displayed a negative attitude towards them. Attitudes are defined as a system of values, emotions and actions towards others.

     

    Aim: the purpose of this study was to highlight the attitudes and experiences of nurses towards caring for people with borderline personality disorder

     

    Methods: A study on the literature based on nine scientific papers was performed. The articles have been analyzed, systematically coded and compiled into a new unit.

     

    Results: This study shows that nurses have an overall negative attitude towards patients with borderline personality disorder. Three main categories emerged, which was lack of knowledge, difficult patients and experiences influence. The nurses expressed the lack of knowledge as a feeling of not being competent enough to provide the right care and because of the fact that they had little faith in the care options that existed. Difficult patients was the biggest theme which showed that patients were seen as strong, dangerous ruthless forces that evokes powerlessness among nurses. Something that was seen as consistent throughout the study was that the patients were seen as dishonest and manipulative. The third main theme

    ”experiences influence” showed that experiences affects and touches the nurse that then contributes to the selection of treatment strategies.

     

    Discussions: It appears that there is a gap between nurses' attitudes and the needs of patients resulting in health suffering. This is discussed by Katie Erikson's theory of care suffering from nursing science theory of health and care, patients 'and nurses' views on health promotion.

     

    Keywords: Borderline personality disorder, experiences, attitudes, nursing, nurse, nurses.

    Att möta närstående i sorg: En litteraturöversikt om sjuksköterskans upplevelser av mötet med närstående vid plötsligt dödsfall2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The grief experienced by the bereaved next of kin after a sudden death can result in both physiological and psychological outcomes. The nurse is often faced with the acute crisis that may arise. The meeting with dying patients is emotionally stressful for the nurse, who may experience a disbelief in their own capacity.

    The aim of the study was to highlight the nurse’s experiences of meeting with the next of kin after a sudden death.

    A literature review based on five studies with qualitative design and four with quantitative design. Searches were made in the databases CINAHL Complete, PubMed and Nursing & Allied Health Source. Coping strategies and the concept of health were used as theoretical frameworks.

    The results consist of five themes. The nurse’s experienced role in the meeting with next of kin which showed that the majority of the nurses experienced the meeting with the bereaved next of kin as their responsibility. Emotional stress of the meeting was for example helplessness, stress, failure and guilt. Fear of the next of kin’s possible reactions meant the nurses fear for the reaction from the next of kin. The experience of education and lack of knowledge were considered as an important foundation in the meeting with the next of kin, and The experience of lack of resources that showed a lack of resources and guidelines.

    Stress and other external factors may affect nurses’ health negatively; the use of different coping strategies can assist the nurse in affectively handling such stress. The nurse is required to be in good health to adequately meet the next of kin and their needs. Training in and knowledge of the meeting with the next of kin can contribute positively towards the nurse’s well-being.

    Man föds inte till sjuksköterska, man blir det: En litteraturstudie om manliga sjuksköterskors upplevelser av svårigheter i vårdandet - ur ett genusperspektiv2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sjuksköterskeprofessionen har ur ett historiskt perspektiv varit ett kvinnoyrke. Kvinnor till skillnad från män tillskrivs vårdande som egenskap, då stereotypa föreställningar och attityder finns om att kvinnor är mer omsorgsfulla än män. Manliga sjuksköterskor tenderer att söka sig bort från omvårdnadsområden med nära omvårdnad till omvårdnadsområden som kräver medicinteknisk kunskap och fysisk styrka. Manliga och kvinnliga sjuksköterskor har olika förutsättningar i vårdandet som orsakas av deras könstillhörighet.

    Syftet var att belysa om och i så fall hur manliga sjuksköterskor upplever svårigheter i vårdandet relaterat till deras könstillhörighet.

    Litteraturstudie har använts som metod. Studien baseras på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar hämtade från databaserna CINAHL plus with full text och PubMed. Artiklarna bearbetades med hjälp av innehållsanalys.

    I resultatet framkom tre huvudteman med subteman. Det första huvudtemat, I Att vara man i vården, beskriver vad manliga sjuksköterskor har upplevt i sin profession som sjuksköterska. Det andra temat, II Sexualisering, beskriver manliga sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att bli sexualiserade av patienter och samhället. Det tredje temat, III Att använda strategier i omvårdnadsarbetet, beskriver strategier manliga sjuksköterskor utvecklat för att hantera problem som uppstått i omvårdnadsarbetet.

    Resultatet diskuteras utifrån Connells teori om maskuliniteter. Diskussion förs om genusordning och hegemoniskt maskulinitetsideal inom sjuksköterskeprofessionen samt om hur könsstereotypa föreställningar och förväntningar påverkar manliga sjuksköterskor i vårdandet.

    Beyond cultural competence: How mental health and psychosocial support practitioners' perception of culture influence their work with Syrian refugees in Amman, Jordan.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the start of the Syrian war, Jordan has received many Syrian refugees with around 650,000 Syrians now residing in the country. As the state has received a lot of help from the international community, funding refugee camps and providing basic necessities, a lot of international humanitarian practitioners have come to Jordan to work alongside Jordanian and Middle Eastern practitioners. The situation therefore has brought practitioners from different academic, professional and geographical backgrounds together to work with people of a different cultural background than their own. Syrians represent a vast diversity in terms of ethnic, religious, linguistic and socio-economic backgrounds. Research have addressed that practitioners’ sensitivity to how cultural complexities may influence social problems can facilitate a better understanding of the client’s path to recovery. The purpose of our study was to increase the knowledge of mental health and psychosocial support practitioners’ understanding and experience of a culturally sensitive social work in Amman, Jordan and discuss how this affects their practice with Syrian refugees. Through qualitative interviews we found that the practitioners’ perception of Arab culture as one and the same makes culture a non-issue in terms of cultural diversity, and that this perception influence the practice with Syrian refugees in a number of ways.

    The level of and relation between hope, hopelessness and fatigue in patients and family members in palliative care.2005In: Palliative Medicine: A Multiprofessional Journal, ISSN 0269-2163, E-ISSN 1477-030X, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 234-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hope, hopelessness and fatigue are important experiences for patients and family members in palliative care. The aim of the study was to describe the level of and relation between hope, hopelessness and fatigue in patients and family members in palliative care. Eighty-five participants completed the Herth Hope Index, Beck's Hopelessness Scale and rated their level of fatigue from none to severe. The level of hope proved to be significantly lower among the family members than among the patients. For the family members, correlations were found between hope and age (-0.358*), fatigue and hope (-0.439*), hopelessness and age (0.484**), age and fatigue (0.403**) and between hope and hopelessness (-0.723**). For the patients, correlations were found between age and hopelessness (0.555**) and between hopelessness and hope (-0.580**). Efforts to increase the experience of hope and decrease hopelessness and fatigue must include not only the patient but also the family members. (* =P <0.5, ** =P <0.01)

    'Being appropriately unusual': a challenge for nurses in health-promoting conversations with families2008In: Nursing Inquiry, ISSN 1320-7881, E-ISSN 1440-1800, Vol. 15, no 2, p. 106-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes the theoretical assumptions and the application for health-promoting conversations, as a communication tool for nurses when talking to patients and their families. The conversations can be used on a promotional, preventive and healing level when working with family-focused nursing. They are based on a multiverse, salutogenetic, relational and reflecting approach, and acknowledge each person's experience as equally valid, and focus on families' resources, and the relationship between the family and its environment. By posing reflective questions, reflection is made possible for both the family and the nurses. Family members are invited to tell their story, and they can listen to and learn from each other. Nurses are challenged to build a co-creating partnership with families in order to acknowledge them as experts on how to lead their lives and to use their own expert knowledge in order to facilitate new meanings to surface. In this way, family health can be enhanced.
