    A mixed-methods study of maternal near miss and death after emergency cesarean delivery at a referral hospital in Somaliland2017In: International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics, ISSN 0020-7292, E-ISSN 1879-3479, Vol. 138, no 1, p. 119-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To explore maternal near miss and death after emergency cesarean delivery in Somaliland, including the impact of the prerequisite for family consent.

    METHODS: A facility-based, mixed-methods study was conducted to assess all maternal near misses and deaths recorded at a referral hospital that provided services to women from all regions of Somaliland. The data sources comprised a quantitative prospective cross-sectional study using the WHO near-miss tool (performed from August 1 to December 31, 2015) and qualitative interviews with 17 healthcare providers working at the referral hospital who were in direct contact with the women in labor (performed from January 15 to March 15, 2015).

    RESULTS: Of the 138 maternal near misses and deaths recorded, 50 (36%) were associated with emergency cesarean delivery. The most frequent maternal complication was severe pre-eclampsia (n=17; 34%), and the most frequent underlying causes were hypertensive disorders (n=31; 62%) and obstetric hemorrhage (n=15; 30%). Healthcare providers were often prevented from performing emergency cesarean delivery until the required consent had been received from the woman's extended family.

    CONCLUSION: Maternity care in Somaliland must be improved, and the issue of legal authority for consent examined, to ensure both safe and timely provision of emergency cesarean delivery. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

    Användning av information och kommunikationsteknologi för att främja egenvård på distans för patienter med diabetes typ 2 En litteraturöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic disease that is linked to suffering

    and lack of quality of life. Self-care is essential to reduce the negative

    consequences. Less than half of all patients achieve good self-care. Some of the

    reasons are limited knowledge of diabetes and poor self-care compliance. The

    introduction of ICT in diabetes care was started to improve clinical outcomes and

    quality of life for patients with diabetes type 2. Aim: To describe how information

    and communication technology can promote self-care in distance for patients with

    diabetes mellitus type 2. Methods: Literature study, in which the articles were

    searched in CINAHL, PubMed and Web of Science. Articles included were 15

    articles with a quantitative, qualitative and mixed method. Results: The results

    showed that information and communication technology such as internet,

    computer and mobile phone-based self-care program promoted self-care in patients

    with diabetes type 2 by increasing knowledge, awareness, motivation and

    improving lifestyle change. Conclusion: Information and communication

    technology can facilitate the daily challenges for patients with type 2 diabetes

    because it covers the knowledge gap and increases patient awareness and

    motivation for self-care.

    Vad kännetecknar en bra idrotts- och träningsmiljö för elitsatsande inom längdskidåkning2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte

    Syftet var att ta reda på vad elitaktiva inom längdskidor anser vara en bra idrotts- och träningsmiljö.

    Metod

    Metoden som används är uppdelad i två olika ansatser. Den första ansatsen är inom den kvantitativa forskningen och utformades som en enkätstudie, där längdskidåkare har fått svara på frågor om sin träningsmiljö. Den andra delen av uppsatsen är utformad som en kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade intervjufrågor baserat på ett mindre urval av de som svarat på enkäten. Detta skedde efter att resultatet av den kvantitativa studien blivit analyserat, för att utforma en intervjumall från enkätsvaren, i syfte att försöka få en djupare förståelse av detta problemområde.

    Resultat

    Resultatet visar att det finns en stor komplexitet i uppfattningen om vad som anses vara en bra träningsmiljö för längdskidåkare. Dock kan det urskiljas att vissa faktorer som viktigare än andra, till exempel vikten av att ha träningskamrater och god sparring för att kunna utvecklas. Värdet av att ha en tränare ansågs också viktigt. Resultaten visar även hur den elitaktive upplever sin träningsmiljö i dag och vad som efterfrågas.

    Slutsatser

    Det framkom tydligt att bristen på hjälp upplevs stor bland seniorer inom längdskidor. Att steget mellan junior och eventuellt gå på ett skidgymnasium, till att bli senior upplevs alldeles för stort, att det inte finns tillräcklig stödfunktioner, skolor eller träningsgrupper att tillgå som senior.

    Att vänta på organtransplantation: En litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva patienters upplevelse att vänta på organtransplantation.

    Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturöversikt. Artiklarna har sökts i databaserna CINAHL, PubMed och Scopus. 15 artiklar valdes ut till resultatet, 3 artiklar hade kvantitativ ansats och 12 kvalitativ ansats.

    Resultat: 3 huvudkategorier presenteras i resultatet: Begränsningar innebar att vara bunden av teknisk apparatur och förhålla sig till en ny livsstil. Tiden fick nytt perspektiv och patienter upplevde att de alltid behövde vara beredda. Patienterna möttes av falskt alarm och upplevde väntan som oviss. Det fanns behov av stöd från anhöriga, patienter i samma situation och stöd från vårdpersonal. Tydlig och rak kommunikation var viktig för patienterna. Sjuksköterskan behövde finnas till hands. Trots oro fanns en känsla av en andra chans i livet.

    Slutsats: Patienter som väntar på en organtransplantation upplever att sjuksköterskan behöver vara tillgänglig, ha tydlig kommunikation, ge anpassad information utifrån individuella önskemål samt accepterar och förstår vikten av anhörigas närvaro och stöd så att varje patients enskilda behov kan bemötas.

    Faktorer av betydelse för god palliativ omvårdnadsett ur ett patientperspektiv- en litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this literature review was to, from a patient point of view, identify factors within the specialized palliative care that constituted good care from the.Method: A systematic literature review was undertaken. Fifteen articles were reviewed. Thirteen of these were qualitative and two were quantitative.Results: Four categories were identified: self determination, capability of the nurse, nursing relations and maintaining dignity.The patients self determination was a central part of nursing. Delegating control and self determination from a patient to a nurse is also a form of self determination.Capable nurses instill trust and gave patients the opportunity of more alternatives when it came to choices concerning the care of the patient.A good relation with the nurse could give the patient a feeling of being important and being a part of something bigger, despite lack of family or friends. Important factors regarding patient-nurse relations were continuity and nurse accessibility.Maintaining dignity included being seen as the human being that the patient was before the terminal illness was diagnosed.Conclusion: Patients noted several factors as important for good palliative care. These could be summarized as self determination, nurse capability, nursing relations and maintaining dignity.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet var att undersöka vilka egenvårdsråd och effekterna av dessa som finns beskrivna i litteraturen vid NAFLD samt hur följsamheten av dessa beskrivs. Studien utfördes som en litteraturöversikt som inkluderade 16 artiklar, alla med kvantitativ ansats. Resultatet visade att livsstilsförändringar i form av fysisk aktivitet och ändrade matvanor var det bästa sättet för att minska NAFLD. Viktminskning hade en god effekt på NAFLD och även små viktminskningar reducerade mängden fett i levern. Det framkom även att fysisk aktivitet utan viktminskning var effektivt för att reducera mängden fett i levern. Vidare visade det sig att följsamheten ökade med individuellt utformade program och kontinuerlig stöttning. Förutsättningar för att uppnå livsstilsförändringar ökade med realistiskt uppsatta mål.

    Sjuksköterskans upplevelse av att ge personcentrerad vård till personer med demenssjukdom: En litteraturstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Dementia impairs cognitive functions, such as memory and

    speech, changing a person’s life forever. Providing person-centred care to these

    persons intend to retain their identities, dignity and autonomy. Such care demands

    time, devotion and good knowledge of the caring nurse. Dementia is expected to

    increase in the future and therefore nurses will have to face new challenges.

    Aim: To describe nurses’ experience of providing person-centred care for people

    with dementia.

    Method: A literature review of 15 articles, published between 2009-2016, that

    have been read and analysed through content-analysis.

    Results: Nurses experience a positive change in their attitudes, when providing

    person-centred care to people with dementia, as they gained better understanding

    of their patients’ dignity and integrity. Education, training and support from

    management were seen as key factors for providing up-to-date care. Time was

    viewed as a hindrance for person-centred care, and often led to nurses prioritizing

    other routines. Two common outcomes of person-centred care were increased

    satisfaction as well as emotional burnout.

    Conclusion: Since dementia is increasing and nurses find person-centred care

    time-consuming, there is a risk of such care becoming poor. To prevent this nurses

    need good leadership and education.

    Suicidal drowning deaths in northern Sweden 1992-2009: The role of mental disorder and intoxication2015In: Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, ISSN 1752-928X, E-ISSN 1878-7487, Vol. 34, p. 168-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suicides by drowning have received limited attention by researchers. A recent finding that almost one-third of all drowning deaths in Sweden were classified as suicide instigated this study. We identified 129 cases of suicide by drowning in Northern Sweden and analyzed the circumstances and the psychiatric history prior to the suicide. Information was obtained from autopsy, police and medical records, as well as from the National Inpatient Register. One-third of the suicide victims had previously attempted suicide and half of the victims had been hospitalized due to mental health problems. One-third of these had left the hospital less than one week before the suicide. Alcohol and psychoactive drugs were present in 16% and 62% of the cases, respectively. A history of mental disorder and previous suicide attempt (s), especially by drowning, is an ominous combination necessitating efficient clinical identification, treatment and follow-up if a complete suicide is to be prevented.

    Hur sjuksköterskor identifierar smärta hos patienter med demenssjukdom på särskilt boende - En litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Pain is a major problem in nursing homes. Dementia is a disease that causes humans lose their ability to communicate their pain to their surroundings. People with dementia express their pain through behavioral changes because they can’t verbalize their pain experiences. As a consequence of this leads to that dementia patients are not receiving adequate pain management.

    Aim: The aim of this study is to explore how nurses identify pain in dementia patients in nursing homes.

    Method: The study was conducted as a literature survey. In total, 15 articles were used in this study that consists of both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Articles have been sought in the databases Cinhal and PubMed.

    Results: The results of this study shows that according to nurses is pain identification among dementia patients an extreme challenge and requires more knowledge. Patients with mild to moderate dementia can self-report their pain to a certain extent. The most useful clues to discovering pain among dementia patients who are limited in their speaking skills is to observe facial expressions, body language and behavior changes.

    Conclusion: The authors conclude that it is important to create and develop a relationship between caregivers and demented patients. This is to get to know the patient and knowing his usual habits and behavior changes as to facilitate the identification of pain

    Mapping of midwifery education sites in Dhaka division, and presentation of acceptable and feasible requirements for a national accreditation toolkit: A questionnaire study among midwifery faculty2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Extensive demands are placed on midwives in their professional role. The midwifery education is obligated to answer to these professional requirements. ountry specific, feasible and acceptable accreditation toolkit for institution/collages/universities is, therefore, relevant to develop.

    Objective:

    The objective was to map the existing situation of the midwifery education sites in Dhaka division and to explore acceptable and feasible requirements to be included in an accreditation toolkit for Bangladesh.

    Methods:

    A questionnaire study with open and closed response alternatives was used.

    Results

    : Six nursing diploma institute and one nursing college were included in the mapping. The theory in relation to practice (theory/practice) in the education was 40%/60% for 5 institution/colleges and 50%/50% for one institute. Both qualitative open questions and closed questions based on ICM Global standards revealed that the acceptable and feasible requirements for a nationwide accreditation tool for midwifery educations needs clearly written admission and student policies, supportive staffs and formally prepared and globally oriented competent unbiased teachers who maintain their standard by participating in professional development activities.

    Conclusion:

    Implementing globally standard accreditation tool for educating and training competent midwives is not a far-fetched idea in the context of Bangladesh. The clinical applicability of this essay lies in the fact that competent midwives can profoundly provide suggestions for improvements of midwifery educations with support of an accreditation tool.

    Knowledge, attitudes and perceptions in relation to family planning among future midwives in Bangladesh: A quantitative study among midwifery students2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Family planning allows people to attain their desired number of children and determine the spacing of pregnancies. It is achieved through the use of contraceptive methods and the treatment of infertility. It secures the well-being and autonomy of women while supporting the health and development of the communities. A midwife can support people having family planning facilities and thus reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity and unnecessary interventions, and improve psychosocial and public health.

    Objective:

    The objective of the study was to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions towards family planning among future midwives in Bangladesh.

    Methods:

    A cross-sectional study was conducted among final year midwifery students (n=141) of 16 public midwifery nursing institutes and colleges of Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was used and data analyzed by descriptive statistics in Excel.

    Results:

    Almost all respondents agreed on the statement that women should be treated with respect when seeking family planning services. One third disagreed or strongly disagreed that unmarried women should abstain rather than use family planning. Almost half of the respondents disagreed or strongly disagreed that women should be free to choose if and when they want to become a pregnant. Majority of the respondents had inadequate knowledge about effectiveness regarding different FP methods and misconceptions regarding hormonal family planning methods.

    Conclusion:

    This study showed that diverse attitudes related to family planning and women’s right to access family planning services exist among future midwives. The study also found misconceptions regarding side effects of family planning methods and inadequate knowledge regarding effectiveness and appropriateness of different family planning methods.

    Clinical implications:

    To increase knowledge, midwifery curriculum should have a special emphasis on the effectiveness of different contraceptive methods and effects of hormonal contraceptives, and particularly the link to clinical practice. Value clarification training can be a way to address attitudes in relation to family planning. Further qualitative research should be conducted to gain a deeper understanding of midwifery students’ attitudes and perceptions.

    Mapping of five midwifery education sites in Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions And Acceptable and feasible requirements perceived by the nursing instructors for development of an accreditation toolkit: A questionnaire study2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    High demands are placed on midwives in their professional role. The midwifery education is obligated to answer to these professional requirements. Country specific, feasible and acceptable requirement accreditation toolkit for institution/collages/universities to achieve is therefore relevant to develop. This study is part of a survey mapping 25 midwifery education sites in seven divisions in Bangladesh. This is to provide a baseline assessment for possible requirement for the ongoing development of an accreditation toolkit for institutes and collages providing midwifery education.

    Objective:

    The objective was twofold. First, to map five midwifery education sites in Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions as a baseline in the process of developing an accreditation toolkit in Bangladesh. Secondly, to explore nursing instructors’ suggestions of acceptable and feasible requirements for an accreditation toolkit for midwifery education in Bangladesh.

    Methods:

    The design was a questionnaire study. The total number of participants was 36. Data was collected through a semi-structured questionnaire with both open and closed response options, which were analyzed through essentially non-parametric statistics and systematic text condensation.

    Results

    : The mapping showed that the students enrolled at the midwifery programs were young, being lectured by comparably few faculty members compared to the number of students, a faculty with an extensive experience of nursing but with less experience in midwifery. Suggestions for the development of an accreditation toolkit were that the assessor should be Bangladeshi, and that posts for clinical teachers and mentors should be one assessment criteria. Further findings showed that 40 normal births were less important to achieve in core competences for midwifery students than other requirements related to midwifery skills.

    Conclusion:

    An accreditation tool can" close the gap" between the curricula in text and implementation of the same. Mapping of existing education sites amongst partners provides a potential for development of a Bangladeshi national and a global midwifery education accreditation toolkit. The clinical applicability of this essay lies in a development of an accreditation tool that can support institutes to achieve the goal that a Midwifery Diploma curriculum is being implemented that support student’s learning, and the goal that the students will become "Midwives" according to global standards and ICM definition.

    Supportive components of care during cesarean section birth: A qualitative meta-synthesis2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Caesarean section is the most common surgery worldwide today. The midwives support is therefore of uttermost important for women undergoing caesarean section. Aim: The aim of the meta-synthesis was to explore the experience related to planned and unplanned cesarean sections among primipara and multipara women in hospital settings worldwide. Method: This study is a meta-synthesis with meta-ethnographic analysis on women’s experiences of caesarean section birth. This is a qualitative research based on scientific literature. The inclusion criterion was peer-review qualitative articles from different original articles about women's experiences. Results: Five categories emerged: Caring attitude and behaviour, pre-existing imagination, relational influence, the need for caring and information. The findings suggest that nurse-midwife enhance their support and increase the women’s knowledge on caesarean section birth in order to improve the experience and also for women to make good choices. Women are influenced by people near to them when choosing to have a cesarean section or not. The mothers face challenges for postoperative recovery and quality of care. Midwives have a duty to assist these mothers. Conclusion: The findings emphasize the importance of person-centered communication skills and relationships in supporting a woman during caesarian section. Organizational systems and services that facilitate continuity of care giver for example, continuity of midwifery care or peer support models, are more likely to facilitate supportive care and a trust-building relationship. Clinical implication: The findings from this study can be used for educational purposes, and to create awareness about the role of midwifery care in relation to CS.

    Patientens berättelse i mötet med sjuksköterskan ipsykiatrisk vård En litteraturstudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: är att beskriva vad det är som påverkar patientens berättelse i mötet medsjuksköterskan. Metod: Designen har en kvalitativ ansats. De valde studiernakvalitetsgranskades och analyserades enligt Friberg. Databaser som användes för sökning avlitteratur var: PubMed, Cinahl, PsycINFO, Wiley Online Library och Web of Science.Artiklarna skulle vara kvalitativa, skrivna på engelska eller svenska och vara tillgängliga ifulltext. I studien har även rapporter och systematiska översikter inkluderas. Åtta kvalitativaartiklar användes. Resultat: Fyra teman identifierades: patientens upplevelser i relation medsjuksköterskan, patientens berättelse och narrativa ramverk för att förstå upplevelsen av sinsjukdom, patientens uppfattning om terapeutiska relationer samt kommunikation mellanpatient och sjuksköterska. Slutsats: Att patienten inte berättar sin berättelse i mötet medsjuksköterska beror på patientens upplevelser och uppfattningar. Dessutom beror det på vilkakommunikationsfärdigheter sjuksköterskan förmedlar i mötet med patienten. Den miljön debefinner sig, till exempel sjukhus, har inverkan på patientens berättelse i mötet medsjuksköterskan. Lika viktigt är interaktionsprocessen mellan sjuksköterskan och patienten,när de ses som individer, inte som sjuksköterska och patient. Genom att förstå en personsunika upplevelse kan sjuksköterskor uppfatta och med en vårdande relation hjälpa till medkomplexiteten och rikedomen i en persons individuella väg mot återhämtning.

    Improved tracking performance of lagrangian block-matching methodologies using block expansion in the time domain: in silico, phantom and in vivo evaluations2014In: Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, ISSN 0301-5629, E-ISSN 1879-291X, Vol. 40, no 10, p. 2508-2520Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to evaluate tracking performance when an extra reference block is added to a basic block-matching method, where the two reference blocks originate from two consecutive ultrasound frames. The use of an extra reference block was evaluated for two putative benefits: (i) an increase in tracking performance while maintaining the size of the reference blocks, evaluated using in silico and phantom cine loops; (ii) a reduction in the size of the reference blocks while maintaining the tracking performance, evaluated using in vivo cine loops of the common carotid artery where the longitudinal movement of the wall was estimated. The results indicated that tracking accuracy improved (mean - 48%, p<0.005 [in silico]; mean - 43%, p<0.01 [phantom]), and there was a reduction in size of the reference blocks while maintaining tracking performance (mean - 19%, p<0.01 [in vivo]). This novel method will facilitate further exploration of the longitudinal movement of the arterial wall.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to analyze if the precision of a shot and a pass differs between professional youth players (16-18 years) and senior players (22+ or older).

    Method

    A total of 30 elite players which were 16 males and 14 females performed tests in shooting and passing precision. The set-up on the test days were a total of 60 shots(30 lying still and 30 half volley) and 80 passes (20 lying still best foot, 20 rolling best foot, 20 lying still next best foot and 20 rolling next best foot). The test results were analyzed using Excel and Kinovea. In these programs the mean value and standard deviation for each player and test group could be calculated.

    Results

    The result shows that there were only significant differences in one of six parts regarding precision on the men's side. On the women's side, there was no significant difference in any of the six moments.

    Conclusions

    The authors of this study identified a plateau between players aged 16-18 and senior players in terms of accuracy in passing and shooting. Players between the ages of 16-18 is as good as a senior player at the individual skills passing and shooting. This plateau can be the result of too little individual training so called isolated training in terms of precision. If the club coaches follow the training SvFF educate, only two minutes per training session goes to each individual skill (SvFF names 13 skills). The lack of time for these skills can be a decisive factor for why the development of precision stands still today.

    Könsskillnader i vårdmötet: En litteraturöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Title. Gender disparities in healthcare encounters: A literature review.

    Aim. This essay investigates what impact the sex of patients and nurses has in

    healthcare encounters.

    Background. That sex and gender norms have an impact on encounters,

    communication and clinical decision making is known from previous research. But

    no research has been made that gives an overview of how this affects healthcare

    encounters. Investigating this is important to bring awareness of what impact this

    has on the patient.

    Method. This essay was conducted as a literature review.

    Findings. Five qualitative studies and five quantitative studies that investigated

    different aspects of healthcare encounters from a gender perspective were chosen

    and analyzed. The analysis resulted in five main themes that each reflect different

    aspects of healthcare encounters. Among other things, factors that may limit

    female patients’ autonomy were identified and that the nurses’ gender may be a

    deciding factor in whether the patients are given opportunity to talk about their

    feelings.

    Conclusion. The result suggests that patients’ and nurses’ gender has an impact in

    healthcare encounters. In some areas the difference was more pronounced than in

    others, for example when it comes to talking about emotions, moral support in

    dialogues and opportunity for patients to be listened to.

    Omvårdnadsåtgärder som främjar självbestämmanderätten hos patienter med demenssjukdom på äldreboenden: En litteraturstudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Litteraturstudiens syfte är att belysa omvårdnadsåtgärder som främjar självbestämmande hos dementa patienter på äldreboenden. Metod: Litteraturstudien innefattar 15 artiklar där kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats har använts. Sökningarna gjordes i databaserna CINAHL och PubMed. Resultat: Studien visade att omvårdnadsåtgärder som främjar patienter med demenssjukdoms självbestämmande är: Närvaro ifrån vårdgivarna, förenklade val, låta det ta tid, låt patienten fatta beslut i sin egen takt, lära känna patienten för att förstå dennes önskemål, anpassad information, talande kort som komplement och bevara en så hemlik boendemiljö som möjligt. Slutsats: Resultatet av litteraturstudierna visar att det finns omvårdnadsåtgärder som främjar självbestämmande hos dementa patienter på äldreboenden. Detta kan och bör införas av vårdgivarna på äldreboenden runt om i världen.

    Betydelsen av personcentrerad vård för psykiatrisjuksköterskor i mötet med suicidnära ungdomar2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Ett suicidförsök beror ofta på snabba och intensiva krafter eller påfrestningar som

    en sårbar individ inte kan hantera på egen hand. Suicidförsök beräknas vara cirka tio gånger

    vanligare än antalet fullbordade suicid, men det finns ett stort mörkertal eftersom statistiken

    baseras på individer som fått vård inom heldygnsvård. Tillgänglig statistik visar att antalet

    suicidförsök har ökat bland alla åldergrupper, men största ökningen går att se hos

    åldersgruppen 15-24 år.

    Syfte: Syftet är att få en uppfattning om hur psykiatrisjuksköterskan beskriver hur det är att

    bemöta suicidnära ungdomar utifrån personcentrerad vård inom heldygnsvård.

    Metod: En studie med en kvalitativ design med semistrukturerade intervjuer som

    datainsamlingsmetod. Psykiatrisjuksköterskor med erfarenhet av arbete på barn och

    ungdomspsykiatrin inom heldygnsvård deltog i studien.

    Resultat: Psykiatrisjuksköterskan beskriver att personcentrerad vård var en förutsättning för

    alliansskapande med den suicidnära ungdomen och alliansskapandet sågs som det mest

    centrala i omvårdnaden. Studien pekade på att alliansen med den suicidnära ungdomen var en

    viktig förutsättning för att få en fungerande öppen kommunikation. Studien visade dessutom

    att den personcentrerade omvårdnaden var en viktig aspekt för skapande av delaktighet och

    respektfullt bemötande utifrån att psykiatrisjuksköterskan tar den suicidnära ungdomen på

    allvar och vågar ställa öppna och direkta frågor. Vidare sågs psykiatrisjuksköterskans

    specialistutbildning och kliniska erfarenhet ha stor betydelse rörande kunskap om psykiatriska

    tillstånd, riskfaktorer, läkemedel och bedömningsinstrument.

    Slutsats: Resultatet visar på viktiga omvårdnadsaspekter utifrån personcentrerad vård som

    kan bidra till att psykiatrisjuksköterskan tillsammans med den suicidnära ungdomen kan

    analysera, kliniskt hantera och förebygga suicidrisker och suicidförsök inom heldygnsvård.

    Sjuksköterskans riskbedömning och omvårdnadsåtgärder för att förebygga malnutrition på äldreboenden En litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt var att belysa hur sjuksköterskan bedömer malnutrition samt vilka omvårdnadsåtgärder som används för att förebygga malnutrition på äldreboenden.

    Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturöversikt där artiklar söktes via databaserna CINAHL with Fulltext och PubMed. Sökningarna resulterade i 13 artiklar som analyserades för att hitta skillnader och likheter och resulterade i kategorier och underkategorier som svarade mot litteraturöversiktens syfte och frågeställningar.

    Resultat: Resultatet visade att det vanligaste mätinstrumentet för att bedöma malnutrition på äldreboenden var MNA. Där mätinstrument inte användes, användes ofta BMI i stället av sjuksköterskor för att få en bild av den äldres nutritionsstatus. Omvårdnadsåtgärder som visat ge god effekt var utbildning   av vårdpersonalen,  individuella matplaner och energi- och proteintillskott i mat och dryck.

    Slutsats: Mer kunskap till sjuksköterskor om vikten att utföra nutritionsbedömning för alla äldre vid inskrivning och kontinuerligt och även hur de bör använda mätverktygen. Behov av individanpassade omvårdnadsåtgärder med energi- och proteinberikad mat, energi-proteintillskott, en god munhälsa och måttlig fysisk aktivitet har god effekt.

    Faktorer av betydelse för implementering av vetenskaplig evidens i klinisk omvårdnad: En litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: I föreliggande litteraturstudie var syftet att beskriva vilka faktorer som har betydelse för implementering av vetenskaplig evidens i klinisk omvårdnad samt att jämföra dessa faktorer med ramverket PARIHS implementeringsteori.

    Metod: Artiklar söktes via databaserna PubMed och CINAHL. Inklusionskriterierna uppfylldes hos 21 artiklar vilka gick vidare till kvalitetsgranskning. Slutligen kvarstod 16 artiklar vilka resultatet baserats på. Artiklarna analyserades genom identifiering av likheter och skillnader i innehåll avseende faktorer av betydelse för implementering.

    Resultat: Enligt studiens resultat omfattar evidens egenskaper hos evidens och intervention samt patienters möjlighet att vara involverade i projektgruppen. Kontext bestod av resurser på arbetsplatsen, ledarskap och mentorskap samt attityder och åsikter hos personalen. Facilitering innefattade säkerställande av att personalen besatt kunskap och hade relevant utbildning, att det fanns ett multidisciplinärt samarbete samt att vedertagna implementeringsstrategier användes.

    Slutsats: Resultatet från studien svarar i hög grad mot PARIHS element evidens, kontext och facilitering. Författarna är av uppfattningen att implementering av vetenskaplig evidens är en komplex process där ett flertal olika faktorer samverkar, vilket bekräftas av beskrivning av implementering utifrån ramverket PARIHS. Implementering kräver kunskap om hur positiva och negativa faktorer kan förstärkas respektive minskas utifrån rådande förutsättningar.

    Diabetessjuksköterskans undervisning i egenvård hospatienter med diabetes typ 22015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Diabetes is a major worldwide public health problem and the number of affected people will increase substantially in the next 10-15 years. Early efforts should be made as instructions inself-care and lifestyle changes to prevent the development of complications. Purpose: The purpose is to describe diabetic nurse's training of self-care in patients with type 2 diabetes. Method: The study was conducted as an empirical study with a qualitative approach in which ten diabetic nurses were interviewed. The interview guide included semi-structured questions and the data were processed using qualitative content analysis. Results: Diabetes Nurse's Role in the teaching of patient self-care is to be supportive and provide the patient a sense of confident as many patients are unmotivated to change their lifestyle. The first theme that emerged were diabetic nurse's role to sensitize the patient's self-care responsibilities and it consisted of four categories that she/he will serve as an advisor. However, due to lack of personal, insufficient contact time with the patients can lead to deficiencies in quality of the medical care. Diabetes nurse can use National Diabetes Register for competence development or as guidelines in teaching. Second theme that emerged was the need for education in diabetic patients and consisted of four categories in which the diabetes nurses adapt the teaching to the level of individual skills of the patient inorder to make the patient aware of healthier lifestyles. The patient requires motivation for lifestyle changes as well as to participate in group work sessions on the subject. Conclusion: Diabetes Nurse was trying to teach self-care, adapted to the patient's level of expertise. However, increased resources, i.e. increased number of nurses, and is required to conduct education in diabetes care in accordance with the guidelines. The diabetes nurses require more time to keep up with the latest research performed in the subject diabetes.

    En översikt av vilka faktorer som har samband med patientens upplevelse av kontinuitet i vården: En litteraturstudie2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Research shows that patients wants continuity, as they feel it adds to the feeling of security

    and closeness That it gives the nurse the opportunity to get to know the person and an

    opportunity to better follow up actions.

    Aim

    The aim of this study was to investigate the factors that influence patient perception of

    continuity of care.

    Method

    This study was conducted as a literature review.

    Result

    The results showed that it was important for the continuity that they got to meet a nurse they

    knew from before, and it was the same nurse at every appointment. It was also important that

    who they met, was up to date on their medical history. An important factor that increased

    continuity was if the patient has a chronic disease, which increases the need to require regular

    follow-up with more visits to health care. Patients experienced greater flexibility of care

    performed by a nurse instead of a doctor, the nurses took more time with the patient and that

    it was more effective.

    Conclusion

    The study shows that continuity is important when patients recieve care, but there is no

    research about how care should be organized, for continuity to be perceived better from a

    patient perspective, balanced against the needs of the organization to save time and money.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of plant-based diets on

    overweight individuals based on previous research. The questions asked were: “Is

    there any evidence that suggest positive effects of plant-based diets on blood

    pressure-, blood sugar-, LDL-cholesterol- and blood lipids levels?” and “Is there

    any evidence that suggest positive effects of plant-based diets on BMI?”

    Method

    This study was conducted as a literature review containing 14 academic journal

    articles with a quantitative approach. The articles were found in databases such as

    PubMed (EBSCO), SportDiscus, Cinahl, Scopus and ERIC. A thematic analysis

    was used in the data compilation that seeks to identify patterns and themes of

    convergence in research. These following objects were researched in relation to

    plant-based diets: BMI, blood pressure-, blood sugar-, cholesterol and blood lipid

    levels.

    Result

    A number of articals showed that following a plant based diet gave significantly

    positive effects on health, such as lowered BMI-measures, blood pressure-, blood

    sugar-, cholesterol-, and blood lipid levels among overweight and obese

    individuals.

    Conclusions

    There is suggestive evidence that plant-based diets demonstrated numerous health

    benefits according to previously conducted research studies. Plant-based diets

    were shown to be effective in prevention of obesity by reducing BMI

    measurements in overweight individuals after following diet interventions.

    Improved Physical Capacity in a Project with Guided Physical Activity for Persons with Depression or Anxiety.2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Higher physical capacity is correlated with increased health. Knowledge in this area regarding psychiatric diseases is sparse. 

    Purpose: The aim was to study aerobic and several strength capacities in a physical activity project for persons with depression or anxiety.

    Methods: Eighty-four persons (56 women and 28 men) with depression or anxiety were recruited from psychiatric out-patient clinics in Stockholm. Their mean age and BMI was 46 (21-80) years and 26 (17-41) kg/m2, respectively. 50% were sick-listed. 50% had BMI>25. Aerobic and strength tests were chosen by each subgroup´s project leaders. Directed physical activity was given, in groups 10-15, 1 hour twice/week during 8-12 weeks.

    Results: Significant changes (p<0.05, of all n=84) between pre- and post tests were seen in submaximal cycle test (11% enhanced values, n=56) and distance of 6 minutes walk test (16%, n=15) as well as in strength tests for the back for the back (i.e. time in static horizontal belly-back, 40%, n=44), abdominal and hip flexors (i.e. number of hip flexion sit-ups, 45%, n=38), leg (i.e. standing with 90O in hips and knees, 48%, n=56) and arm with shoulder muscles (i.e. number of raising weights alternately with the arms, 46%, n=32). Hand grip tests, BMI or blood pressure values did not change significantly.

    Conclusions: Directed 8-12 weeks physical activity programs can improve physical fitness in individuals with depression or anxiety.

    Tillmatning av nyfödda barn på BB i Sverige: följs föreskrifter och rekommendationer2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet var att beskriva omvårdnaden kring nyfödda barns tillmatning på svenska BB-avdelningar, om föreskrifter följdes och om hänsyn togs till eventuell allergihereditet. Metod: Deskriptiv tvärsnittsstudie med kvantitativ ansats Resultat: Av alla nyfödda barn vid 26 barnkliniker i Sverige vecka 26 år 2009 (n=849) tillmatades 18 % . Moderns bröstmjölk gavs till 16% medan 78 % tillmatades med komjölksbaserad modersmjölksersättning. Den vanligaste orsaken till tillmatning av ersättning var att mammans egen mjölkproduktion inte hade kommit igång (24 %). Andra vanligt förekommande anledningar till tillmatning var lågt blodsocker (18 %) samt sugproblem hos barnen (16 %). Sexton barn tillmatades trots ett blodsockervärde motsvarande >2.2mmol/l. Vad gäller allergiförekomst tillfrågades endast 37 % av barnens föräldrar före tillmatning. Dokumentation om tillmatning fanns noterat i 80 % av barnens journaler. Motsvarande siffra för mammornas journaler var 34 %. Konklusion: Bristfälliga omvårdnadsåtgärder vidtas i samband med tillmatning av nyfödda spädbarn på BB-avdelningar, där allergifrågor ställs i för låg utsträckning. BB-kliniker har varierande referensvärde för vad som räknas som lågt blodsocker. Omvårdnadsbehov för nyfödda barn och deras föräldrar, där förmedlad kunskap om amningens betydelse, tas inte på allvar och oklara riktlinjer skapar förvirring. Föreskrifter och riktlinjer bör följas i större utsträckning an vad denna studie visar.

    Sjuksköterskans roll i den pre- och postoperativa fasen hos äldre patienter, med fokus på nutritionen: En litteraturöversikt2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt var att beskriva hur litteraturen skildrar sjuksköterskans roll i vården av den äldre patienten i den pre- och postoperativa fasen, med fokus på nutritionens betydelse för rehabiliteringen och risken för komplikationer. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturöversikt och artiklarna söktes via CINAHL och MEDLINE.  Studiens resultat innehöll ett urval på 14 artiklar med kvantitativ ansats. Resultat: Undervisning och handledning med fokus på nutritionens betydelse för rehabiliteringen och risken för komplikationer var av vikt, även bedömningsinstrument underlättade sjuksköterskans nutritionsbedömning.  I omvårdnaden var energi- och näringstillskott, individuellt anpassade vårdplaner och måltidssituationer viktiga komponenter. Förebyggande åtgärder inom både omvårdnad och medicin hade en korrelation mellan förbättrad nutrition, rehabilitering och minskade risken för komplikationer hos äldre patienter i den pre- och postoperativa vården. Slutsats: Personer över 65 år var en utsatt patientgrupp gällande undernäring och postoperativa komplikationer. Vården bör därför vara anpassad efter den enskilda äldre individens villkor och innehålla information till patienten för att möjliggöra dennes aktiva roll i den egna vården. I det preventiva arbetet behöver sjuksköterskan fortlöpande utbildning och handledning angående hur medicinska och fysiologiska faktorer tillsammans påverkar den äldre individen samt hur sjuksköterskan i ett tidigt skede kan påvisa undernäring hos äldre.

    Aim: The aim was to investigate the quality of life experience within patients with chemotherapy-treatment.

    Methods: The study was conducted as a literature review. Twelve articles were included with 7 qualitative approach and 5 with quantitative approach. Article was searched for in the database CINAHL.

    Results: The quality of life experience within patients’ undergoing chemotherapy were compiled from five different categories - Side effects from chemotherapy, the social experience, the physical and cognitive experience, then mental and emotional experience and the need for information and advice. The result shows that the experience of side effects within patients undergoing chemotherapy affected the quality of life negatively. The nurse can help improve the quality of life experience within patients undergoing chemotherapy by adequate information and advice.

    Conclusion: Information about potential side effects of chemotherapy is an important part of caring. The prevention work on anxiety and to advise patients to socializing with family and friends can contribute to improving the experience of quality of life within patients suffer from chemotherapy treatment.

    Sjuksköterskans erfarenheter av att ge omvårdnad till palliativa patienter på sjukhus - en litteraturöversikt2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    At the end of life, the nurse's goal is to improve the quality of life for patients with incurable disease or injury. The nurse with a nursing responsibility plays an important and central role and meets palliative patients in all health care departments in a hospital. One of the most challenging experiences might be providing care to a patient in the final phase of life, and one of the biggest difficulties may be to talk about death and sorrow. It is therefore of great importance to study how nurses experience caring for palliative patients in hospital awards.

    Aim:

    The purpose of the study is to describe nurses' experiences of caring for palliative patients at general hospitals.

    Method:

    This study was conducted as a literature study and 13 articles were included in the results. The studies had both qualitative and quantitative approach.

    Result:

    The results show that nurses have varied experiences of caring for palliative patients. Experience of inadequacy and stress is something that most nurses have in common, and it is important when patient needs and wishes can be met. More education is something that is considered necessary if you want to work with palliative care, and areas such as communication, pain and emotional support are considered desirable. Nurses also considered that a hospice is a better suited place for patients to spend their last time in life.

    Conclusion:

    Nurses working with palliative patients consider it to be stressful and difficult many times since they do not always have sufficient knowledge.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet var att utifrån patienters och närståendes nerskrivna berättelser ta del av deras upplevelser och erfarenheter av lungcancervården samt att utifrån dessa berättelser identifiera förbättringsidéer.Metod: Studien hade en empirisk design med kvalitativ ansats. Datainsamlingen skedde via idéböcker. Materialet analyserades genom kvalitativ innehållsanalys.Resultat: Två teman framkom i resultat. Det första temat var: Känslor av otrygghet och lidande kopplat till vården, livet och den egna sjukdomen. De tillhörande kategorierna var vårdlidande, livslidande och sjukdomslidande. Det andra temat var: Känslor av trygghet kopplat till goda mellanmänskliga relationer. Tillhörande kategori var goda mellanmänskliga relationer. Utökat psykosocialt stöd och utbildning i kommunikation till personal fanns bland de idéer för utveckling av lungcancervården som framkom.Konklusion: Denna studie visade att patienter med lungcancer kände otrygghet och lidande, till stor del orsakat av vården. Där goda möten ägde rum skapades trygghet och goda mellanmänskliga relationer. Utökat psykosocialt stöd och utbildning i kommunikation till personal fanns bland de idéer för utveckling av lungcancervården som framkom.

    Den kvinnliga patientens erfarenhet och upplevelsevid akut kranskärlssjukdom, en litteraturöversikt2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den vård som bedrivs vid akut kranskärlssjukdom är idag bristande när det gäller

    jämställdhet. Männen har varit och är dominerande i den forskning som bedrivs

    om kranskärlssjukdom, vilket utsätter kvinnan för risk vid både diagnos och

    behandling av sjukdomen. Det råder bristande medvetenhet om genusperspektiv

    vid vårdandet av akut kranskärlssjukdom, och mer forskning behövs för att

    uppmärksamma sjuksköterskans behov av att tillämpa detta förhållningssätt.

    Syfte

    Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt är att beskriva den kvinnliga patientens

    erfarenhet och upplevelser vid akut kranskärlssjukdom.

    Metod

    Studien genomfördes som en litteraturöversikt där tio kvalitativa artiklar

    granskades. Databaserna PubMed, CINAHL och Google Scholar användes vid

    sökningen.

    Resultat

    Resultaten i denna litteraturöversikt visar hur den inlärda förväntan om typiska

    symptom och tecken på akut kranskärlssjukdom påverkat kvinnorna vid tolkningen

    av deras symptom. Under sjukdomsförloppet framkom även hur kvinnorna

    förminskade och förnekade allvaret i situationen. Symptomen kunde kopplas till

    mindre allvarliga åkommor, biverkningar av en ny medicin eller bortförklaras med

    stigande ålder.

    Slutsats

    En djupare förståelse för hur kvinnor reagerar vid debuten av akut

    kranskärlssjukdom är nödvändig för att sjuksköterskor ska kunna agera adekvat då

    kvinnan inkommer till sjukhuset.

    Betydelsen av fysisk aktivitet för att lindra depressiva besvär hos ungdomar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Att utifrån litteratur belysa betydelsen av fysisk aktivitet för att lindra depressiva besvär hos ungdomar. Design: Studien har utförts som en litteraturöversikt. Metod: Litteratur som publicerats mellan 2001-2012 söktes fram i databaserna PsycINFO och CINAHL. Sammanlagt 14 vetenskapliga artiklar har granskats och använts i litteraturöversikten. Resultat: Fysisk aktivitet har visat sig ha en positiv effekt på depression hos ungdomar. Fysisk aktivitet visade på en dämpande effekt på depressiva symtom, och påvisade att viktiga effekter av fysisk aktivitet ger en lindring av depressiva symtom. Skillnader mellan yngre tonåringar och äldre tonåringar är att de yngre tenderar att ha högre deltagande i fysisk aktivitet gentemot de äldre, varav mängden fysisk aktivitet minskar från de tidiga tonåren till de äldre. Familjefaktorer har ett starkt samband med fysisk aktivitet. Ungdomar som har en god relation med sina föräldrar har också ett större deltagande i olika fysiska aktiviteter. Flickor löper större risk än pojkar att drabbas av depression. Förebyggande strategier avseende fysisk aktivitet kan vara framgångsrika, och det är viktigt att ha fokus på ungdomar med en historia av psykisk ohälsa och hälsoriskbeteenden för att minska risken för fortsatt utveckling av psykiska problem. Slutsats: Depression hos ungdomar skapar en sämre livskvalitet. Fysisk aktivitet är en viktig del av välmåendet och bör framhävas i relation till psykisk ohälsa hos unga. Att uppmärksamma flickors tendenser till ett sämre mående är en viktig del i omvårdnadsarbetet. Det är viktigt att som sjuksköterska ha vetskap om sambandet mellan fysisk aktivitet och depressiva symtom för att kunna arbeta preventivt och applicera kunskapen i det dagliga arbetslivet och i möten med ungdomar.

    Sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att möta patienter med självskadebeteende inom somatisk akutsjukvård: En litteraturöversikt2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Deliberate self-harm is a symptom of mental illness that ever since the turn of the millennium has been increasingly highlighted. The first contact with healthcare a person with deliberate self-harm often takes place via the somatic emergency medical care. Patients testify to negative experiences in the meeting with these care instances. Therefore, it may be useful to investigate how nurses perceive the meeting with patients with deliberate self-harm. Aim: The aim of the literature review was to describe nurses’ experiences of meeting patients with deliberate self-harm in somatic emergency medical care. Method: The study was conducted as a literature review where 15 scientific articles were sought via the databases PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO and Web of Science. The articles were quality-reviewed, analyzed and compiled into a result. Results: In the process of describing nurses’ experiences, three main categories emerged which were: The nurse's thoughts and feelings; Competence and knowledge; Factors that affect the meeting and care. Conclusion: The result showed that nurses in somatic emergency medical care had both positive and negative experiences in the meeting with patients with deliberate self-harm which evoked different feelings and thoughts among nurses. Common to the studies was that nurses stated that they had a lack of competence and knowledge about this patient group.

    Beröringens effekter inom palliativ vård: En litteraturöversikt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med studien var att se vilken effekt beröring har som

    omvårdnadsåtgärd för patienter inom palliativ vård. Metod: Studien är genomförd

    som en litteraturstudie. Huvudresultat: I de flesta studierna framgick att massage

    eller beröring hade positiv effekt på smärta, oro/ångest, sömn och på

    välbefinnandet Resultatet utmynnade i sex kategorier: smärtlindrande effekt,

    lugnande effekt, effekt på välbefinnandet och livskvaliteten, effekt på sömnen,

    effekt över tid och effekt beroende på terapiform. En av studierna visade inte

    någon signifikant skillnad på välbefinnandet hos grupper som fått

    massagebehandling eller vänligt besök av vårdpersonal. Slutsats: Resultatet visar

    att man kan använda beröring som ett komplement till traditionell vård för att

    bland annat minska smärta samt nå ökat välbefinnande hos patienter inom palliativ

    vård.

    Att leva med diabetes typ 1- En litteraturöversikt om barn och ungdomar samt deras föräldrars upplevelser2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Diabetes typ 1 ökar bland barn och ungdomar, Sverige har den näst högsta insjuknandefrekvensen i hela världen. Diabetes typ 1 är en kronisk autoimmun sjukdom vilket innebär att kroppens immunförsvar angriper de egna insulinproducerande cellerna i pankreas. Patienter med diabetes typ 1 löper stor risk att drabbas av komplikationer och följdsjukdomar.

    Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva barn och ungdomar samt deras föräldrars upplevelser av att leva med diabetes typ 1.

    Metod: En litteraturstudie genomfördes med totalt 15 artiklar utifrån studiens syfte, sökningarna har skett i databaserna Cinahl och PubMed. Artiklarna poängsattes med hjälp av Högskolan Dalarnas modifierade version av granskningsmallar för kvantitativa och kvalitativa artiklar.

    Resultat: Analysen av artiklarna resulterade i fyra kategorier som beskriver barn och ungdomars upplevelser: begränsningar i vardagen, stöd från föräldrar och sjukvården var centralt, rädsla för komplikationer samt att vara annorlunda. Två kategorier beskriver föräldrarnas upplevelser: oro rädsla och frustration samt att våga släppa kontrollen.

    Slutsats: Barn och ungdomar med diabetes typ 1 upplevde sitt liv som begränsat. Sjukdomen påverkar dem i skolan, under fysisk aktivitet, tillsammans med vänner, och i sociala sammanhang. Föräldrar till barn och ungdomar med diabetes typ 1 upplevde rädsla och oro över sitt barns sjukdom.

    Egenvård och faktorer som påverkar följsamheten till egenvård för att minska risken för recidiv av venösa bensår: - En litteraturöversikt2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    One percent of Sweden’s population suffers from venous leg ulcers. The risk of recurrence is high at a 70 % recurrence rate. The compliance to performing recommended self-care activities is often low.

    The aim of this study was to highlight evidence based self-care activities, and what factors that influenced the adherence to follow the recommended self-care activities in order to minimize the risk of recurrence in patients with venous leg ulcers. The Method was a literature study based on 15 research articles. The result showed that wearing compression hosiery, performing leg exercises, physical activity and resting with the legs elevated was evidence based methods that lowers the risk of recurrence of venous leg ulcers. Factors found that influenced the compliance to self-care activities among patients with venous leg ulcers were: Information, trust, pain, body image, depression, self-efficacy and restricted mobility. The conclusion was that recommending individualized evidence-based self-care activities to patients with on-going or previous venous leg ulcers lowers the risk of recurrence. A trusting relationship should be established between the nurse and the patient, and interventions aimed towards increasing the patient compliance to recommended self-care activities should be prioritized. By adapting a preventive approach in order to decrease recurrences of venous leg ulcers, the suffering of the patients are minimized as well as the health-care costs of society.

    Möjligheter till motivation för fysisk aktivitet: En interventionsstudie avsedd att motivera elever till fysisk aktivitet genom självbestämmande2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att under en femveckorsperiod undersöka möjligheterna till att förändra elevers motivation till fysisk aktivitet. Utifrån detta syfte formulerades följande frågeställning:

    • Vad sker med elevers motivation till fysisk aktivitet om den praktiska undervisningen utformas efter self-determination theory?

    För att utforma den praktiska undervisningen efter self-determination theory valdes Engstöms praktiker som en grund och stöttepelare i planeringen och genomförandet av lektionerna. Vilket gav en underliggande frågeställning till den ovanstående:

    - Vilka praktiker finns representerade i underökningsgruppen?

    Studien har genomförts på en högstadieskola i mellersta Sverige, där två klasser i årskurs (åk) 8 valdes ut att delta i studien. I undersökningsgruppen blev urvalet 14 elever och i kontrollgruppen 9 elever. Undersökningsgruppen genomförde en praktikenkät innan interventionen, vilken låg till grund i planeringen och genomförandet av lektionerna. De två klasserna genomförde en motivationsenkät före och efter interventionen för att mäta motivationsnivån. Resultatet av interventionsstudien visar att det skedde en viss förändring i de olika motivationsnivåerna. Det fanns dock ingen statistisk signifikant skillnad mellan test ett och test två på någon av motivationsnivåerna, varken hos undersökningsgrupp eller hos kontrollgrupp.

    Fysisk aktivitets effekt på depressiva symtom2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    To this day there’s approximately 350 million people in the world who are suffering from depression. The World Health Organization predicts that depression will be the number one public health problem in the world by the year 2030. Depressive symptoms form the basis of depression. To get the diagnoses depression the symptoms must have been ongoing for more than two weeks. Psychotherapy and antidepressants is the treatment as standard for depression to this day. As early as the year 1905, the idea was raised whether physical activity had an impact on depressive symptoms. Dorothea Orem’s nursing theory is about self-care and only when the person is motivated enough to perform physical activity the self-care can be possible.

    Aim:

    To compile scientific studies regarding physical activity and its impact on depressive symptoms in adults and the elderly.

    Method:

    A literature review which is based on 15 quantitative articles, one qualitative and one mixed method which all used different scales to estimate the degree of depressive symptoms. The article searches have been made in the databases CINAHL, PsycINFO and PubMed.

    Results:

    The results in the quantitative studies showed that physical activity has an impact on depressive symptoms which reflects their decreases according to the scales used for estimation. The studies also showed that intensity, frequency and type of physical activity have an effect on the impact on the depressive symptoms and an individual adjustment is required. The qualitative study showed that the participants felt satisfied after the exercise, that they gained self-confidence and a better self-esteem.

    Conclusion:

    According to the research, physical activity has an impact on depressive symptoms, which means that the depression alleviates or that the person even recovers from the depression which is shown when the score on the used scale doesn’t meet the criteria for the diagnosis depression.

    Barn och ungdomars copingstrategier när en förälder har cancer: En litteraturstudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet var att redogöra för vilka copingstrategier barn och ungdomar kan

    använda för att hantera en förälders cancersjukdom. Metod: Examensarbetet

    genomfördes som en litteraturstudie. Vetenskapliga artiklar söktes i Högskolan

    Dalarnas biblioteksdatabaser PubMed och CINAHL. Elva vetenskapliga artiklar med

    kvalitativ ansats, tre med kvantitativ ansats samt en vetenskaplig artikel med mixad

    metod låg till grund för resultatet. Resultat: Analysen av artiklarnas resultatdelar

    visade att barn och ungdomar hade behov av att få fortlöpande information gällande

    förälderns situation. Barn och ungdomars olika sätt att hantera känslor samt behov av

    socialt stöd från den egna familjen och omgivningen påvisades. Stöd efterlystes från

    hälso- och sjukvården men upplevdes bristfälligt. Vidare försökte informanterna att

    skapa en mening i tillvaron genom att normalisera vardagen, existentiella och andliga

    funderingar samt att prioritera familjen mer än tidigare. Slutsats: Barn och

    ungdomar behöver få information och känna delaktighet för att kunna förstå och

    hantera situationen när en förälder drabbats av cancer. Att leva med en förälder med

    cancer väcker många känslor vilket medför att barn och ungdomar behöver stöd.

    Hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal bör sträva efter att skapa en vårdrelation, inte bara med

    patienten utan även med de närstående, inklusive barn och ungdomar i familjen. En

    fungerande vårdrelation möjliggör för sjukvårdspersonal att stötta hela familjen i den

    svåra situationen.

    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Supporting the woman and her partner is a major part of the midwifery role during delivery. As the number of newly arrived women increases in Sweden, with varied backgrounds and languages, the demands on midwives’ skills increase. Both migration and childbirth can be described as transitions, which can lead to positive development but also to increased challenges. Migration can be a stressful life process for newly arrived woman and the situation of childbirth can contribute to further vulnerability and uncertainty. The midwife has to understand the needs of newly arrived women in order to support and contribute to a positive experience.

    Aim:

    The aim of this study is to describe midwives' experiences and strategies in the meeting with newly arrived women at childbirth, focusing on interaction, trust and context.

    Method

    : Semi-structured interviews with eight midwives analyzed with qualitative content analysis with deductive approach.

    Results:

    The results of the study provided information on strategies that the midwives use to create interaction, trust and context, as well as their experiences. Common to all midwives was that they experienced that good communication with the patient was very important for creating interaction. Ahead of the meeting with a newly arrived woman, the midwives made sure of that they were well prepared. Strategies used to create trust were to show consideration, be present and take time to listen to the woman. By listening to the woman's wishes, providing information and trying to make the woman feel active and making active choices during her childbirth, midwife creates a context for the woman.

    Conclusion:

    The study has shown that midwives have conscious strategies for meetings with immigrated women. There is, however, a need for clearer routines

    regarding the work of immigrated women in the delivery room, increased cultural skills of midwives and more resources to allow more time for these women.

    Clinical application:

    This study, through the strategies of midwives, can guide other midwives to support newly arrived women during childbirth. The study provides suggestions for areas of improvement and aids to improve the meeting and hence the quality of care for these women.
