    När luften inte räcker till: En litteraturöversikt om upplevelsen av att leva med kroniskt obstruktiv lungsjukdom2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of today's most common diseases, and is expected in less than ten years to become the third largest cause of death worldwide. The disease causes breathlessness, cough and increased sputum. Most people who contract the disease are individuals who are or have been smokers. People living with the disease often experience a hard time to not have the same strength as before and experiencing stigmatizing condemnation because the presumable cause of the disease.

    Aim: The aim with this study was to describe the experience of living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    Methods: This is a literature review based on eleven scientific articles. The articles are reviewed and quality analyzed by both the authors in several steps according to the recommendations of the analysis procedure by Friberg (2012). All the articles are available in the databases PubMed and CINAHL and are published 2008-2013.

    Results: The results proved that the physical symptoms that were most problematic for a person with the disease is to have problem with their breathing. Other symptoms recognized as troublesome was the increased mucous secretion, cough and fatigue, which are common in COPD. The psychological symptoms that were common were anxiety, depression and frustration about the loss of energy and this was mainly due to the breathing. Condemnatory attitudes about the disease's onset with questions about the past and/or current smoking behavior which created feelings of guilt and shame. Many people decided to continue smoking despite their diagnosis and feelings of guilt. They saw the smoking as a routine and an activity in their daily lives that they didn’t want to be without.

    Discussion: The discussion concluded that COPD involved a life of suffering for those who gets the disease. Suffering was experienced in loss of social interactions. According to the nursing theorist Katie Eriksson life suffering arise when energy is not sufficient to engage in social interactions. Suffering could also be experienced when a person became dependent on others to cope with everyday tasks, when the energy wasn’t enough. The physical and psychological symptoms that emerged because of the disease were experienced as a lower quality of life. Judgmental attitudes that could occur to people with COPD could cause a suffering. According to Eriksson the reason to this can be that the person does not feel valued as a person. Those who chose to continue smoking felt that smoking resulted in a quality of life and reduced suffering.

    En studie om Socialtjänstens och polisens upplevelser kring barn som bevittnar våld i hemmet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Socialstyrelsen (2011) skriver att det är under de senaste tio åren som man har börjat uppmärksamma barn som bevittnat våld och att dessa barn kan reagera på samma sätt som barn som själva har utsatts för våld och är i behov av stöd och hjälp. Syftet med studien är att öka kunskapen om Socialtjänstens och Polisens arbete med barn som bevittnat våld. Målet är att försöka förstå om det finns en skillnad på myndigheternas bemötande med barn som har bevittnat våld gentemot barn som själva har utsatts för våld och hur denna skillnad i så fall yttrar sig. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Vi genomförde tre intervjuer med Socialtjänsten och tre med Polisen. Våra tre frågeställningar är: Hur arbetar Polis respektive Socialtjänst med barn som är offer för familjevåld? Hur jobbar Socialtjänsten och Polisen med barn som bevittnat våld? På vilket sätt skiljer sig Polisens och Socialtjänstens bemötande med barn som har bevittnat våld gentemot barn som själva har utsatts för våld?

    Vi använde oss av organisationsteorin för att på så sätt kunna beskriva hur Polisen och Socialtjänsten är organiserade och hur de bemöter barn som bevittnat våld. Resultatet från vår studie visar att informanterna upplever att det finns en stor skillnad med att arbeta med barn som bevittnat våld i jämförelse med barn som själva utsatts för våld. Informanterna menar att detta beror på att barn som bevittnat våld idag inte är brottsoffer fullt ut juridiskt sätt och att detta gör det svårare för de att hjälpa dessa barn. Alla våra informanter var eniga om att det idag behövs en lagändring som gör det lättare för de att höra dessa barn och att barnen på så sätt kan få den hjälp och det stöd de behöver. Däremot var de eniga om att alla barn de träffar värderas och bemöts på samma sätt.

    The importance of Intercultural and Decolonial perspectives in a Westernized University: A case study of an interrelated social work setting in Colombia.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the perspective of ‘Trabajo social intercultural y decolonial’ or ‘Intercultural and decolonial social work’ demonstrated by social workers and scholars of the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia. A qualitative ethnographic and a methodologically plural approach are presented. The results shows that the intercultural and decolonial perspective could be of relevant pragmatic value for orienting future studies and opportunities for implementation in social policy programs. Empirical insights gained through this perspective can be used for improving the understanding of this specific domain and the practices of social work in Colombia and on an international arena.

    Att ge beröring i omvårdnad: en litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Touching exists in different forms and can be experienced through the skin. By touching oxytocin is released like a relaxing hormone which counteracts anxiety and depression. Therapeutic contact and healing touch are methods nurses’ uses to give positive feeling of serenity, warmth and wellbeing for the patients. Touching can be a method for communication and happiness when word is not enough. By touching can nurses notice if a patient is, for example, anxious. The hands of the nurse are important caring of the patient such as adequate touching calms and sooths anxiety and pain.

    Aim:  To describe the significance to give touch in nursing.

    Method: A literary summary of scientific articles published between 1995 until 2012, where seven of them have qualitative approach and three have quantitative and all of them found via the databases CINAHL and MEDLINE.

    Result: Nurses were describing how touching had positive significance for the patients. The nurses could by touching reduce the patient’s pain, anxiety and worries. Different sorts of touching was mentioned like massage. A general theme was touching by non-verbal communication which gave a sense of security to the patients. The nurses’ attitude to touch became a problem since the nurses only touched the patients when necessary, for example when caring by hygiene without respecting the patients’ integrity.

    Discussion: In the result discussion it was described how the limited knowledge by the nurses of touching. By training (and education) they could carry though touching with help of different types of touching, massage, tactile touching, therapeutic touch etc. It relieved the state of pain, anxiety, and it also created security, closeness, better sleep and well-being of the patient. The touch adapted to the patients’ needs was described as positive and meaningful. To build an interpersonal relationship was essential and fundamental before the nurse approached the patient.

    Polyfarmacins påverkan på de äldres dagliga liv: En litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: In the natural aging process, changes occur in the body that affect the elderly person's daily life. Aging often leads to diseases that require treatment in form of drugs. The term polypharmacy describes the use of multiple drugs. Medications are the most common form of treatment and may contribute to both positive and negative effects on elderly’s health.

    Aim: The aim was to illuminate nursing problems in elderly regarding polypharmacy.

    Method: A literature review was performed based on 11 quantitative scientific articles. Databases used were Cinahl, PubMed and MedLine. Among the keywords used were polypharmacy, aged, risk factors and nursing. The theoretical framework was nurse Carnevali’s model (1996) dealing with nursing diagnosis.

    Results: From the selected articles’ results revealed four main categories were: 1) fall and risk of falling, which relate to how the elderly’s risk of falling increases with intake of many medications and its consequences, 2) non- adherence highlights the reasons why prescriptions are not followed neither by patients nor healthcare professionals. 3) Nutritional status and malnutrition concerns how polypharmacy can affect the elderly’s nutritional status and as a consequence lead to for example malnutrition, and 4) functional decline and the elderly’s (dis)ability to function in daily life is the last major category that could be affected by polypharmacy.

    Discussion: A difficulty that emerges from the literature is that the definition of polypharmacy is not identified. Despite this, it appears the nursing problems related to drugs can also correlate with multimorbidity which is common in the natural aging process.

    En undersökning av ny rättspraxis år 2010 i 3 § LVU för barn och ungdomar med neuropsykiatrisk funktionsnedsättning2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the current paper is to investigate the precedent riders to 3 § LVU legislation that emerged in 2010 and how it has been implemented since in Stockholm county.  Moreover we aim to shed light on the type of treatment these young people should receive in order to thrive. To accomplish this we have assumed three research questions to answer.  Our chosen approach is based on a true dogmatic method and through a thorough qualitative literature review. In order to understand and interpret the system appropriately in implementation of the precedent legislation we have applied the new institutionalism organization theory to our analysis and conclusion.

         We have based our study on 15 LVU legal cases from 2013, involving young people with ASD or ADHD diagnosis. By interpreting and analyzing these court cases we are able to answer our first research question of how the precedent legislation rider is being implemented in Stockholm County. The result show that in two of fifteen cases the court took the precedent rider legislation into account and rejected applications of compulsory care.  In another two cases even though court has acknowledged and referred to the rider legislation, they have still judged in accordance to the 3 § LVU legislation prior to 2010 rider legislation. Finally in the last eleven cases the court has neither mentioned nor taken into account the precedent rider legislation.

         The other two research questions are established and answered through a thorough look at available literature and a review of previous research.  The result demonstrates the importance of early intervention and young people’s voluntarily participation in the support programs that county offers. The studies recommend that support and care should be provided initially in young person’s own home. If unsuccessful a family placement or HVB placement should be considered as a second option.

         According to the psychologist HejlskovElvén (2010) and SKL children and young people diagnosed with ASD and ADHD should be treated in accordance of a tailored treatment approach.  Involuntarily care as a punishment is not recommended as these young people are not in control of their behaviour or actions.  Presently involuntarily care is based on the youth’s socially destructive behaviour:  behaviour that deviates from the norms of society and that at a neuropsychiatric disability shall not be considered as such.  To ensure best care for young people diagnosed with ASD and ADHD cooperation between the various actors are vital as it helps to steer clear of the risk of them falling through the cracks as it unfortunately is often the case.

    Anhörigas upplevelse av att stötta sin partner med en kurativ cancersjukdom: en litteraturöversikt2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: A large number of individuals are affected by cancer disease every year, but due to improved treatment and early discovery many are cured. The illness, also affect the patient´s significant other and may increase their risk of own health-related problems.

    Aim: The aim was to describe significant others´ experiences when supporting a partner in curative phase of cancer disease.

    Method: The results are based on twelve scientific articles and categorized in seven themes. The Roy Adaptation model was used to discuss the result. Data were collected from the CINAHL and PUBMED databases, including articles from the years 2007-2017.

    Results: The results show that significant others´ own needs were put aside during their partner´s illness. Their identities were affected as they were adapting their everyday life to be able to support their partner. A partner´s illness also changed the couple’s roles as the couples responsibility changed within the relationship. If the significant other experienced the support as burdensome their health could be negatively affected. Significant others´ experienced their relationship to their partner to improve during the illness.

    Discussion: The four adaptation modes by Roy are related to each other and are hard to distinguish and the holistic view of each person is important. We conclude that it is important that the health care system also acknowledges the significant other´s needs and situations and thereby provide support needed to elude future health issues.

    In today's Sweden the rise of psychological illness has increased with eachpassing year, and is now one of the greatest ailments in our society. The maincontributer to this rise correlates to the diagnoses of depression. The latestfigures shows that 20 percent of our elders suffers from psychological illness.The origins of depression, both for young and old alike, may stem frombiological and social factors. The difficulty in establishing a diagnosis ofdepression with elderly - unlike with the young - is partly because elderlydepression manifests itself differently.

    Aspekter som påverkar sjuksköterskors attityder till substansmissbrukare: En litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There is no singular reason why a person ends up in substance abuse. Substance abuse poses health risks, which means that they will come in contact with health services. In the society the substance abusers are stigmatized which may affect the nurses’ behavior towards them.

    Aim: Highlighting the aspects that contribute to the nurse’s attitudes towards patients with a substance abuse problem and how the attitudes affect the health care.

    Method: The literature review is based on twelve scientific studies. The studies were analyzed toillustrate the similarities and differences. These were discussed and when the authors agreed it was written into the literature review's results.

    Results: The results showed that the nurse’s previous experiences had a big impact on how the nurses saw patients and how their attitudes influenced their expression. Previous experience contributed to fear and insecurity among many of the nurses. The professional competence turned out to have an impact because the nurse’s lack of knowledge of how an addiction affects prevented them to see the patient as a human being. Nurses with a high level of caring awareness managed this better.

    Discussion: The discussion includes Ericsson’s theory of suffering and the metaparadigm caring. Nurses’ attitudes affect the care relationship and that negative attitudes create an unnecessary suffering related to care and illness because there is a risk of information being overlooked. Social stigma affects how the nurses perceive the addict as a patient. A paternalistic approach may be necessary to increase the patients’ chances to have a future autonomy.

    Sjuksköterskans omvårdnad för att minska aggressivitet hos personer med demenssjukdom: En litteraturöversikt2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Demenssjukdom är en av de största framtida sjukdomarna. 30 procent av inlagda patienter över 65 år lider av demenssjukdom. Medellivslängden ökar eftersom gruppen äldre ökar, vilket medför att även antalet personer med demenssjukdom ökar för varje år. Beteendemässiga och psykiska symptom vid demens (BPSD) är vanligt förekommande som en följd av demenssjukdom. Den sjuke visar ett beteende som är svårt att hantera för vårdgivare och det orsakar stor påverkan på den sjukes omgivning. Fysisk eller verbal aggressivitet inte ett helt ovanligt beteende hos dessa patienter. Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskans omvårdnad för att minska aggressivitet hos personer med demenssjukdom. I resultatet framkom ett huvudtema och fyra underteman för förebyggande av aggressivitet. Vårdmiljöns betydelse, betydelsen av sjuksköterskans kunskap, betydelsen av sjuksköterskans kommunikation och betydelsen av drabbades livshistoria var förutom huvudtemat Förebyggande av aggressivitet, de fyra teman som belystes i resultatet.

    Att vårda en person med HIV: Närståendes upplevelser2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bakgrund: HIV is a chronic disease that affects people worldwide and is associated with shame, guilt and vulnerability. Both the person with an HIV and the related are physically and psychologically exposed. Studies have shown that relatives of the patients with chronic diseases are often neglected. In today's society, it has become more common for relatives to care - so it is important that their experiences are taken into consideration in order to be offered the right support. The nurse has a responsibility to include and support the related persons in order to maintain their role as carers. Aim: The aim of this literature study was to highlight the family caregivers’ experiences of caring for a person who has HIV. Method: A literature review consisting of ten scientific articles found in three different databases. The articles have both qualitative and mixed design. The content analysis was conducted according to Friberg. Results: The results exposed different categories and subcategories; The emotions of the family caregivers with the subcategories Fear, Frustration, Hope and hopelessness as well as the family caregivers’ positive experiences of caring; Consequences that family caregivers faced during caring for relatives with the subcategories Stress, Care burden and Responsibility as well as Stigmatization. The other main categories are Knowledge and lack of knowledge as well as support and luck of support. Discussion: The outcome discussion explains how stigmatism has different consequences for the relatives in association with the care of a person with HIV. The premises are primarily taken from Eriksson's caritative theory, focusing on the concepts of health and suffering. Knowledge and lack of knowledge for the relatives are also discussed based on the family caregiver’s conditions to care for the person who has HIV.

    Developing Concepts in Caring Science Based on a Lifeworld Perspective2005In: International Journal of Qualitative Methods, ISSN 1609-4069, E-ISSN 1609-4069, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 57-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Concept development is a significant form of inquiry to expand and develop the knowledge base in caring science. The authors’ aim in this article is to illuminate the possibility of working with concept development, based on a life world perspective, especially Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy of language, wherein phenomenological, semiological, and pragmatic dimensions are included. The theoretical discussion shows that it is possible to create methodological principles for concept development based on epistemological foundations that are consistent with ontological assumptions in caring science

    The woven fabric – a metaphor of nursing care: the major subject in nursing education2002In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 115-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Society’s future needs regarding health care present challenges to traditional nursing education. Today, the ambition is to create a nursing role that is appropriate to people’s health care needs rather than the needs of the health care system. In nursing education, the major subject – nursing care – is central. Accordingly, there is a need for a consistent and clear articulation of this subject as well as the nursing profession. The aim of the present study was to interpret and describe the major subject, its content and structure in the nursing programme at Mälardalen University. With a hermeneutic approach an interpretation and application emerged as a metaphor of nursing care – the woven fabric. In this structure concepts function as bridges linking theory and practice, whereby it is possible to integrate different aspects of knowledge in order to think, feel and act nursing care.

    Fysiska aktiviteter och välbefinnande hos patienter med reumatisk artrit: En litteraturöversikt2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Rheumatic arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects man both mentally, physically and socially. The disease causes the presence of pain, stiffness and fatigue which affects patient's level of activity and sense of well-being. The consequence of rheumatic arthritis means life changes as well as adjustments to the disease and reduced level of physical activity.

    Aim: To highlight how physical activity affects well-being in patients with rheumatic arthritis.

    Method: A literature review was conducted and based on ten scientific articles. Included articles consisted of eight quantitative articles, a qualitative as well as a mixed design article. The analysis was conducted using Friberg (2017) and resulted in two themes.

    Results: The result showed that physical activity gave patients greater well-being. Factors for motivation and limitation of physical activity were identified. Physical activity was feasible and accepted for patients with rheumatic arthritis. Disease activity was not affected by increased physical activity and therefore motivated patients to be active and maintain physical activities.

    Discussion: Patients needed knowledge about the management of the disease's symptoms and how inactivity affected wellbeing. Sedentary behavior was common in patients with rheumatic arthritis, where the nurse's ability to detect this was important. Adapting to life with rheumatic arthritis was important to increase well-being and maintain the balance between activity and rest. Self-efficacy motivated patients to maintain physical activity.

    Transsexuella personers upplevelser av identitet och förkroppsligande: En litteraturstudie utifrån teorin om livsvärlden och den levda kroppen2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning/abstract

    Bakgrund: En transsexuell person upplever sig tillhöra det motsatta könet och vill oftast korrigera sin kropp genom hormonbehandling och kirurgi så att den stämmer överens med det kön som personen identifierar sig med. Enligt den vårdvetenskapliga livsvärldsteorin är en människas kropp inte bara säte för hennes upplevelser utan också för hennes identitet. Genom kroppens sinnen skapar man en bild av sig själv och sin omvärld. Detta medför att om kroppen förändras, förändras även identiteten och tillgången till världen. Kunskapen om transsexuella personer hos personal inom hälso- och sjukvården är mycket bristfällig. Transsexuella personer utsätts inte sällan för diskriminering, intolerans och utanförskap.

    Syfte: Syftet med vår uppsats är att belysa transsexuella personers upplevelser av identitet och förkroppsligande.

    Metod: En litteraturstudie baserad på åtta vetenskapliga kvalitativa artiklar utfördes. Innehållsanalysen av datan gjordes enligt Granheim och Lundman.

    Resultat: Fyra kategorier framkom ur analysprocessen, dessa är: Den kroppsliga transitionen, som behandlar de transsexuella personernas upplevelser av kroppens förändring i relation till en könsbytesprocess. Inre och yttre identitet, som handlar om upplevelser av överensstämmelse mellan den kropp man fötts i och den inre identiteten. Familjerelationer som behandlar olika positiva och negativa aspekter av familj och vänners reaktioner på den transexuella familjemedlemmen. Den sista kategorin Att vara transsexuell i samhället och det offentliga rummet handlar om hur transsexuella personer upplever det bemötande de får och hur samhället ser på dem.

    Diskussion: Det som diskuteras i resultatdiskussionen är betydelsen av att se på kroppen som ”levd” för att förstå den kroppsliga transitionen, inkongruensen som uppstår mellan den inre känslan av könsidentitet och det yttre biologiska könet och att vara transsexuell i ett heteronormativt vårdsammanhang och samhälle. Detta diskuteras utifrån livsvärldsteorin och teorin om den levda kroppen och lyfts ytterligare genom begreppet Othering. Även etiska förhållningssätt diskuteras i samband med frågan om vården och samhällets heteronormativitet.

    Nyckelord: Transsexualitet, identitet, förkroppsligande, livsvärld, narrativ

    Keywords: Transsexual, identity, embodiment, lifeworld, narrative analysis

    Facial Expressions of Patients With Dementia: A Comparison of Two Methods of Interpretation1995In: International psychogeriatrics, ISSN 1041-6102, E-ISSN 1741-203X, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 527-534Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two methods of interpreting the videotaped facial expressions of four patients with severe dementia of the Alzheimer type were compared. Interpretations of facial expressions performed by means of unstructured naturalistic judgements revealed episodes when the four patients exhibited anger, disgust, happiness, sadness, and surprise. When these episodes were assessed by use of modified version of the Facial Action Coding System, there was, in total, 48% agreement between the two methods. The highest agreement, 98%, occurred for happiness shown by one patient. It was concluded that more emotions could be judged by means of the unstructured naturalistic method, which is based on an awareness of the total situation that facilitates imputing meaning into the patients' cues. It is a difficult task to find a balance between imputing too much meaning into the severely demented patients' sparse and unclear cues and ignoring the possibility that there is some meaning to be interpreted.

    Caregivers' Reactions to the Physical Appearance of a Person in the Final Stage of Dementia as Measured by Semantic Differentials1993In: The International Journal of Aging & Human Development, ISSN 0091-4150, E-ISSN 1541-3535, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 205-215Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The semantic differential (SeD) technique was applied to 158 caregivers from a nursing home in the northern part of Sweden. The questionnaire contained fifty-eight bipolar scales of adjective pairs and the interviewees indicated then-reactions to a described picture of a severely demented person: A factor analysis revealed three dimensions; an ethical one, an esthetical one, and one about the person's own feelings. The fifty-eight scales were mostly rated toward the negative poles. The severely demented person was rated as painful, apathetic, suffering, weak, afraid, sad, cold, dark, rough, and ugly.

    Four years later a comparable group of caregivers (n = 93) answered a revised questionnaire containing the 26 SeD scales with factor loadings > .50 for the picture of the severely demented person. The result was nearly identical and alternative interpretations are discussed.

    The Sucking Behaviour of Two Patients in the Final Stage of Dementia of the Alzheimer Type1991In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 141-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two patients in the final stage of dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT), who could no longer be given nutrition by assisted feeding, were given fluids by means of the sucking ability they still retained. They sucked more slowly under nutritive than under non-nutritive sucking conditions. The sucking efficiency of one of them improved during training. The status of the patients in the final stage of their dementia differed from one another, which might explain the difference in outcome. It is therefore suggested, that the use of the patients' sucking ability could serve as a complement and/or an alternative feeding technique when assisted spoon-feeding becomes extremely difficult or impossible. It is considered to be more gentle and natural than the present feeding techniques.

    Facial expressions in severely demented patients: a stimulus-response study of four patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type1991In: International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, ISSN 0885-6230, E-ISSN 1099-1166, Vol. 6, no 8, p. 599-606Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ability to exhibit facial expressions was studied in four patients with severe dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT), by means of the Facial Action Coding System (FACS) and physiological responses (heart rate, respiration, skin temperature) under pleasant and unpleasant stimulus conditions. Complex facial expressions that could be interpreted as expressions of emotions were not seen. An increase in the number of facial movements and changes in the physiological responses were seen most markedly under the unpleasant stimulus condition. The patients' reactions during the assumed pleasant stimulus conditions indicated comfort. Different reactions were obtained among the patients. The importance of developing further methods to identify and interpret facial movements in nurse-patient relationships is emphasized.

    Staff's experience of and the management of violent incidents in elderly care2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 410-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Violence towards staff has become an important issue, since it has been reported to be common in various health care settings. This study aimed to describe emotional reactions among staff being exposed to violence in residential community care for the elderly: to investigate consequences from violent incidents and to describe the management of violent incidents. Data were collected by telephone interviews with nursing staff reporting incidents of violence. During the period of investigation, 97 of 848 staff (11.4%) reported that they had been exposed to violence. More than one-third of them reported subsequent wound and bruises from the incident and two of the exposed staff consulted a doctor because of the violent incident. The most frequently reported reactions among the staff were aggression, astonishment, and antipathy against the perpetrating care recipient, as well as insufficiency, powerlessness, insult and fear. A majority of the incidents were judged as intentionally perpetuating from the care recipient. Most of the violent incidents were managed by informal discussions in the working team. A low number of the reported incidents of violence involved formal discussions with nurse managers.

    Filipino nurses’ experiences of nursing in the public health care settings in the Philippines: A qualitative interview study2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The Philippines gained independency year 1946. Health services in the country were decentralized year 1991 and was moved from a national level to local government. The public health care system still appears obscure among the growing population and concerns over the public health care settings’ accessibility and quality remain. Religion is significant for the 95 percent Christians who lives in the country and the population obtain a deep faith in God. As the leading exporter of health workforce, nurses that remain in the public health care setting face challenges of workload in a challenging work environment. This study has been made to obtain deeper understanding of Filipino nurses’ experiences of practicing nursing in the public health care settings in the Philippines.

    Aim: The aim was to describe Filipino nurses’ experiences of practice nursing in the public health care settings in the Philippines.

    Method: The design is a descriptive qualitative interview study consisting of semi-structured interviews with nine nurses in Palawan, Philippines. The material was analyzed using qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach.

    Result: Nurses in this study experience challenges caused by lack of resources and restricted budget. This results in an increased workload and an inadequate nurse to patient ratio which in order create experiences of threatened patient’s safety. Nurses experience feelings of insufficiency in the profession and therefore, have an increased risk of burnout and errors.

    Discussion: The discussion addresses nurses’ challenges of practice nursing in public health care settings. The nurses are not able to deliver the care they want due to an oppressive workload and time constraint which in order affect the interaction with patients. Several nurses’ experience patient safety being threatened and mention their way of practicing nursing as unsafe which cause feelings of being helpless and insufficient among the nurses in this study. Christianity plays a significant role for the participants in practicing nursing. Nurses coming on and off shifts have daily prayers together which is experienced as energizing for the nurses, as they find strength and wisdom through the beliefs in God.

    Socialtjänstens utmaningar i mötet med minoritetsgrupper: En kvalitativ studie om muslimska kvinnors upplevelser och erfarenheter av bemötandet inom socialtjänsten.2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the lived experiences and treatment of Muslim women in their encounters with the social services. The primal themes for this study was: How does Muslim women experience the treatment of their case in the social services in a situation of need? How can the encounter and experience with the social services affect the clients trust in the social services?  What is the ideal treatment of women with a Muslim identity by the social services?

    The aim of this study was to investigate and capture the respondents lived perceptions and experiences with the social services, and thus the qualitative interview methodology was implemented to answer the research questions and hypotheses. Seven interviews with Muslim women were conducted in various districts of Stockholm, a city in northern Sweden. Five of the respondents were of ethnic Swedish origin and two were of other ethic origin.

    The results show that the majority of the respondents experienced a negative response at least once when in contact with the social services. Respondents emphasize that the unsafe and insecure meeting with the social worker was due to a non-verbal body language which they experience as an indication of preconceived notions about Muslim women, which is particularly experienced and described by the respondents with the Islamic headscarf. The trust in the social services decline in connection with the negative reflection of the respondents.

    However, the lived experiences with the social worker and the social services have not all been of a negative nature. The suggested ideal is also taken from the respondents own lived experiences with the social services.  A pervasive and consistent ideal is that the respondents want to be listened to, understood and respected for who they are as well as empowered rather than suppressed. 

    Key words: treatment, attitudes, Muslim women, social services, symbolic interactionism, trust, reliance (confidence) ideal, Rothstein, Mead, structural discrimination.

    Abstract [en]

    Substance addiction is a growing problem in the society which affects the users physically and mentally but it also has an effect on a societal level. Nurses have an obligation to encounter patients with a correct ethical standpoint and a critical approach. Nurses experience that they are not properly fitted to treat these patients and requested more knowledge within this field. To investigate how patients with substance addiction experiences nurses’ encounter. The study is a literature review where ten scientific articles of qualitative method were analysed according to Friberg (2017) where the differences and the similarities conducted the themes of the result. The results showed variable positive and negative experiences of health care professionals treatment/encounter which were divided into categories. The categories are presented as Experiences of being judged, Experiences of being treated with a lack of knowledge, Experiences of not being taken seriously and Experiences of trusting relationship. The result was discussed out of Phil Barker’s Tidal Model, the study’s background, scientific literature and the authors own point of view.

    Caregivers' perceptions and interpretations of severely demented patients during feeding in a task assignment system.1990In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 147-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ninety-one focused interviews concerning the feeding of 23 severely demented patients were performed with 62 caregivers who fed the patients in a task assignment system. The aim was to increase the understanding about how caregivers perceive and interpret severely demented patients' behaviour and experiences during feeding. Content analysis showed that the caregivers' commitment or lack of commitment constituted a superior level that determined whether the patient was seen as a subject or as an object. Subcategories that were found were knowledge of the patient's disease and personal history, intuition, identification, empathy, generalisation and routinisation.

    Feeding problems in severely demented patients seen from task and relationship aspects1989In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 113-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aimed at increasing the understanding of feeding problems in severely demented patients cared for in a task assignment system. Twenty-three video-recordings made during the feeding of 15 severely demented patients and 55 focused interviews with 45 caregivers, who fed the 15 patients during that period were analysed regarding the feeding problems seen from a task aspect and from a relationship aspect. The result indicated that the problems were partly of a more constant nature and partly fluctuated from meal to meal. Feeding problems regarding the task aspect were mentioned first by the caregivers in the interviews in spite of the fact that the patients had severe communication problems which could be expected to cause great problems in the relationship between the patient and his caregiver. Reasons for these findings are suggested.
