Abstract [en]

Current research shows that students through internationalization can develop a higher awareness of global perspectives in higher education. Dalarna University has participated as one of seven Universities in Sweden and Finland, in the project, The Academic Value of Mobility (https://www.uhr.se/globalassets/_uhr.se/publikationer/2018/rapport-2018-9-det-akademiska-vardet-av-mobilitet.pdf), funded by European Union and organised by the Swedish Council of Higher Education [Universitets- och högskolerådet (UHR)]. The overall aim was to increase student’s mobility as well as developing international perspectives involving all students in higher education. This presentation has a method developing design. We have elaborated a model of internationalisation in the curriculum based on ICOMs definition of competencies. This definition visualizes the progression of competencies based on learning goals in the preschool and nursing programmes at Dalarna University. Ethnographic method was used during the project. Methodically PAAR, Participatory and appreciative action research, and its four subprocesses were selected. According to the learning goals, the progression of ICOMs competencies were operationalized in a flowchart. As a result, the flowchart was found for the usability of internationalisation opportunities in all programs in higher education.

Our model has received attention in national contexts as well as local presentations at our own university.

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to report on a concept analysis of the meaning of patients' participation. Participation is commonplace in many areas of health care and has become an important issue in healthcare services. Participation is essential when giving nursing care. Challenges exist throughout clinical practice to make the patient a participant in their own care. The study had a caring science perspective.

METHOD: A literature study based on Walker and Avant's method was used with eight steps. Data were collected using several databases covering the years 1995-2017. The analysis covered fifteen articles, dissertations, reports and textbooks.

FINDINGS: Patients' participation may be defined as a concept that relates to and includes the three caring science concepts: learning, caring relationship and reciprocity (defining attributes).

CONCLUSION: Participation is a concept with vague meaning that is prevalent in nursing practice. Patients' participation is a complex concept. By using the attributes, it could be more visible in nursing care. The next question for research in this area is how these three attributes can best practically be achieved in a clinical context.

Abstract [en]

AIM: The aim of this study was to develop and to validate the self-administered Falun health instrument. An additional aim was to test its applicability in measuring people's lifestyles linked to health.

METHODS: In 2002, an instrument was constructed containing questions regarding the hazardous use of alcohol, tobacco, unhealthy diets and insufficient physical activity. A pilot study using the instrument was assessed between 2002 and 2006. In Sweden, it was further expanded and tested during the years 2004-2014 among a total of 1295 people.

RESULTS: Face validity was evaluated among colleagues and experts for clarity and completeness resulting in minor adjustments of some questions. With the test-retest method, the self-administered Falun health questionnaire showed a positive and high reproducibility and high compliance. Cronbach's alpha showed a high level of consistency (average 0.86). Factor analysis demonstrated the choice of questions correlated highly to the measured lifestyle.

CONCLUSIONS: This study showed that the self-administered Falun health questionnaire is a valid and reliable instrument, useful for detecting individuals at risk of developing diseases that are related to individual choice of lifestyle.

Abstract [en]

The idea behind care choice is that healthcare providers would be more responsive to patients' health problems and needs and in doing so compete with increased quality and that patients should be able to choose from this. The question is how patients choose a healthcare provider by themselves. The aim was to describe what affected when patients chose healthcare providers. A literature review was carried out. The results showed that patients' choice of healthcare providers depended on the following three themes: their own care experiences, caring relationships with staff and service provided by caregivers. The underlying idea of care choice is competition based on quality of care, but the results show that patients make their choices based on other factors as described in the result and therefore improvement can be achieved if focus is placed on being responsive for patient care needs.

Abstract [en]

The eBalance project is based on the idea that serious exergames—i.e., computer gaming systems with an interface that requires physical exertion to play—that are well adapted to users, can become a substantial part of a solution to recognized problems of insufficient engagement in fall-prevention exercise and the high levels of fall-related injuries among older people. This project is carried out as a collaboration between eight older people who have an interest in balance training and met the inclusion criteria of independence in personal activities of daily living, access to and basic knowledge of a computer, four staff working with the rehabilitation of older adults, and an interdisciplinary group of six research coordinators covering the areas of geriatric care and rehabilitation, as well as information technology and computer science. This paper describes the study protocol of the project’s initial phase which aims to develop a working partnership with potential users of fall-prevention exergames, including its conceptual underpinnings. The qualitative methodology was inspired by an ethnographical approach implying combining methods that allowed the design to evolve through the study based on the participants’ reflections. A participatory and appreciative action and reflection (PAAR) approach, accompanied by inquiries inspired by the Normalization Process Theory (NPT) was used in interactive workshops, including exergame testing, and between workshop activities. Data were collected through audio recordings, photos, and different types of written documentation. The findings provide a description of the methodology thus developed and applied. They display a methodology that can be useful for the design and development of care service and innovations for older persons where user participation is in focus.
