Abstract [en]

Citizen perceptions of justice, regarding both processes and outcomes, are closely related to the perceived legitimacy of the authorities involved and are thus significant for trust. This study investigates how a withdrawn driving license due to visual field loss might affect trust in the authorities involved in withdrawal processes and outcomes: the health-care system, the Swedish Transport Agency, and the judicial system. The factors influencing trust were investigated as was whether the withdrawal experience had changed the trust in other authorities not involved in the withdrawal process. Also, the aetiology of the visual field loss and gender were investigated. A survey study was conducted in which 402 Swedish respondents with visual field loss and a withdrawal experience participated. Variance, regression, and content analyses were conducted. The following conceptual factors were used in understanding trust: Benevolence, Openness, Integrity, Ability, and Value Congruence. The results revealed that processes and outcomes affected the overall trust in all three authorities, although the highest trust was in the health-care system (but still low). Diagnosis, but not gender, was important for the experienced trust. Differences in levels of trust in each authority were related to the aetiology of the diagnosis. Benevolence and Ability were the trust factors most important for overall trust in the health-care system and the Swedish Transport Agency. For some respondents (46%), the negative experiences of the withdrawal had worsened their trust in other, not involved authorities, as well. © 2023 The Author(s)

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Supported Employment (SE) has shown better results in the employment rate for persons with disabilities than other methods within vocational rehabilitation, but how SE affects the employment rate for subgroups in the interventions needs further attention.

OBJECTIVE: To examine previous research regarding the influence of intersecting statuses on the employment rate in SE for people with psychiatric, neuropsychiatric, or intellectual disabilities according to type of diagnosis, sex, race/ethnicity, age, level of education and previous work history.

METHODS: A systematic literature search was conducted in nine databases including peer-reviewed articles from 2000 to April 2021. Articles presenting the employment rate in SE interventions according to the intersecting statuses listed in the objective were included.

RESULTS: The searches identified 3777 unique records, of which 53 articles were included in data extraction. In most of the included articles, intersecting statuses did not affect the employment rate for people in the SE interventions with psychiatric disabilities. Few studies have examined neuropsychiatric and intellectual disabilities. A majority of the studies subjected to full-text analysis were excluded due to a lack of reporting of the effects of intersecting statuses on the employment rate. The studies that reported on the effects of intersecting statuses on the employment rate often had small samples and lacked statistical power.

CONCLUSIONS: Intersecting statuses do not appear to affect the employment rate for people receiving SE interventions, but systematic reviews with pooled samples need to be undertaken because of the low reporting rate and underpowered sample sizes in existing studies.

Abstract [en]

Using thematic analysis, this study examined social workers’ (n = 21) descriptions of what Indigenised social work practice in Uganda entails. Responses from semi-structured interviews revealed the following three themes that inform social workers’ understanding of Indigenised social work practice: (1) collective action and mutuality, (2) communal welfare and respect for life and (3) liberation and restoration. The discussion aims at understanding the hallmarks of each description in relation to the notions of Indigenised social work as culturally inclusive and responsive practice, developmental social work and political action. © The Author(s) 2022.

Abstract [sv]

Att stödja patienter i rehabilitering efter stroke är en viktig funktion för hälsoochsjukvårdskuratorn. I denna artikel analyseras hälso- och sjukvårdskuratornsfunktion utifrån ett systemteoretiskt perspektiv med stöd av patienternaserfarenheter av resiliens och livskvalitet. Intervjuer med 19 personermed stroke sekundäranalyserades tematiskt och resulterade i fem områdenav betydelse för hälso- och sjukvårdskuratorns funktion. De teman somframkom på mikronivå var: trygghet och förutsägbarhet; mening och hopp.På mesonivå: socialt och formellt stöd; samordna och informera. På makronivå:kunskapsspridning och kompetens. Den legitimerade hälso- och sjukvårdskuratornfunktioner återfinns således systemteoretiskt på alla nivåervilket innebär att de professionellt antar en helhetssyn med fokus på individeni relation till dennes situation och kontext.

Abstract [en]

Citizens’ trust of authorities is of general importance, as it can affect trust in society as a whole. The Swedish Transport Agency is a state administrative authority responsible for driving license withdrawal. If withdrawals are experienced as unfair by those affected, this might lead to decreased trust in the agency and in other actors involved. This study accordingly examines how the experiences of people who have had their driving license for a private car withdrawn due to visual field loss might affect their distrust of the authorities, as related to outcomes and processes. Follow-up interviews were conducted with nine people from a previous study. Content analysis revealed one overarching theme, struggling for justice within a system perceived as unfair, which comprised four identified categories: preparedness for and understanding of the withdrawn driving license (WDL); perceptions of assessment methods, reactions and actions regarding the decision, and perceptions of the authorities’ performance. In sum, the vision tests on which withdrawals are based were perceived as unfair, as they did not measure individual driving ability. Furthermore, rejections of appeals led to feelings of hopelessness. Distrust regarding outcomes and processes related to the withdrawals was also fueled by experiences of deficiencies regarding, for example, performance and information.

Abstract [en]

Abuse of older people is a major challenge for people who are aging. Studies into older people’s perspectives on abuse focus mainly on developed countries, while the views of those in sub-Saharan Africa remain largely unheard in social research. To address this imbalance, we report a qualitative study using in-depth semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions to examine older people’s perceptions of abuse in Uganda. Thirty-three participants were selected from four districts of Uganda to reflect different locations, levels of development, cultures, and contexts. Behaviors considered abusive were categorized into five themes: economic abuse, harassment and violence, disrespect, neglect and abandonment, and discrimination. Results showed that participants largely viewed their abuse from a cultural perspective, contrary to the West’s perception based on a discourse of human rights. The findings show the need for a broader definition that includes the cultural dimensions of the abuse of older people in developing societies. © 2021 The Author(s).

Abstract [en]

This study examined the nature of literature reviews published in Australian Social Work between 2007 and 2017. An audit was conducted to determine the number of reviews; types of reviews (systematic, meta-analysis, metasynthesis, scoping, narrative, conceptual, critical); and elements that were commonly reported (based on items drawn from the PRISMA checklist) including quality appraisal. A total of 21 reviews were identified. Results showed the overall number of reviews published remained relatively consistent across the decade. In relation to review types, systematic and scoping reviews appeared with greater frequency in more recent years. Most reviews reported significant proportions of the elements consistent with the type of review undertaken, although a minority did not report the search strategies and only one review included a quality appraisal. In conclusion, the reviews published over the last decade provide a strong foundation upon which further advances in the diversity and quality of reviews can be built.

IMPLICATIONS

  • Literature reviews are an indispensable tool for accessingknowledge to inform social work practice.
  • This first audit of literature reviews in Australian Social Work found a growing sophistication in the reviews published over the pastdecade.
  • Continued improvements in the design, conduct, and reporting of literature reviews will be an invaluable resource in equipping the profession to respond successfully to the growing complexity of demands placed on social work practice in the 21st century.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services has evaluated quantitative and qualitative research regarding rehabilitation for persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI) through systematic reviews. The results indicate that specialized brain injury rehabilitation for persons with post-concussion symptoms after mild TBI results in improved health, when compared to usual care (results with low certainty according to GRADE). As few high-quality studies were identified, it was not possible to assess the effects of vocational rehabilitation, rehabilitation with case management/coordinator, residential living or specialized brain rehabilitation for persons with moderate to severe TBI. A synthesis of qualitative studies showed that persons with TBI experience insufficient coordination of health services and access to rehabilitation (results with low to moderate confidence according to CERQual).

Abstract [sv]

SBU:s utvärdering visar att det behövs fler välgjorda forskningsstudier om sammanhållen rehabilitering för vuxna med traumatisk hjärnskada. 

Sammanvägd forskning indikerar att personer med restsymtom efter lätt traumatisk hjärnskada kan få förbättrad hälsa om de får specialiserad hjärnskaderehabilitering i stället för sedvanlig vård. Resultatens tillförlitlighet är dock låg.

Det går inte att bedöma effekterna av arbetslivsinriktad rehabilitering, rehabilitering med samordnare, särskilda boendeformer eller specialiserad hjärnskaderehabilitering för personer med medelsvår till svår traumatisk hjärnskada. 

Kvalitativ forskning visar att personer med traumatisk hjärnskada upplever brister gällande samordning och tillgänglighet till rehabilitering och att närstående utgör ett viktigt stöd.
