    Robustness in constructing a network of induced emissions based on GPS-tracking data2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The mobility of people, freight and information is fundamental to economic and social activities such as commuting, manufacturing, distributing consumer goods and supplying energy. There are two major problems that arise as a result of mobility. The first is economic cost and the second is environmental impact which is of increasing concern in sustainable development due to emission levels, particularly as a result of car use. This study focuses on constructing a network of induced emissions (NOIEs) by using three models and checking the robustness of NOIEs under varying parameters and models. The three models are Stead’s model, the NAEI model, and Oguchi’s model. This study uses the Swedish city of Borlänge as the case study.

    Calculating CO2 emissions by constructing the NOIEs using Stead’s model appears to give an underestimation when compared to results from a NOIEs which applies Oguchi’s model. Results when applying the NAEI model in constructing a NOIEs also give an underestimation compared to a NOIEs applying Oguchi’s model. Applying the NAEI model is, however, more accurate than applying Stead’s model in constructing a NOIEs.

    The outcomes of this study show that constructing a NOIEs is robust using Oguchi’s model. This model is preferable since it takes into account more important variables such as driving behavior and the length of the road segments which have a significant impact when estimating CO2 emissions.

    Assessment of Parkinson gait through digital signal processing and machine learning2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    It would be of both patients’ as well as clinicians’ interest, if diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) as well as following check-up methods were perfectly sensitive, accurate, reproducible and feasible of objectively classifying motor symptoms of PD. This is an arduous task due to the possible subjectivity of clinical evaluations. In the past decade, attention turns into a multitude of technology based measures (TBMs) to address this need, among which the method of this research is positioned. Author hopes to contribute with a motor assessment method that addresses not only the issue of subjectivity of measurement, but also does not require extensive installments and is easy to use. For this study, data from a clinical trial conducted at Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden in 2015 are used. 7 PD patients and 7 healthy controls each performed 7-13 times each the same motoric gait test, which has been was video recorded. These recordings were showed to clinicians, who rated subjects’ gait and possible dyskinesia on the unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (0-4 rating). Thus the aim of this research was to imitate and automate the tasks of clinicians when diagnosing PD and its symptoms through motoric ratings, using various gait features. These gait features were obtained through quantification of signals from different body parts while patient performs walking motoric test, using image processing. Diagnosis of PD and its symptoms was twofold, as to firstly identify whether the subject has PD and to secondly predict the severity of PD patients symptoms. When classifying subjects into healthy controls and PD patients, classification trees and support vector machines have been deployed, while these achieved 76- 85% accuracy depending on features selected. Following focus was to diagnose severity of PD among patients, while using UPDRS ratings by clinicians as a target variable for supervised learning. Herein, linear regression has been deployed, while average absolute prediction error was 0.25 and correlation of UPDRS ratings with predicted values was 0.84.

    Does the competition state undermine the long term sustainability of rural tourism?: The case of Sweden2014Ingår i: Proceedings from TTRA 2014 International Conference: Tourism and the New Global Economy / [ed] Marion Joppe, 2014, s. 171-188Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the contemporary competition state, many peripheral regions are in decline. Tourism is increasingly considered as a savior for regions lagging behind. The EU has launched several programs with the ambition to stimulate growth and employment in peripheral areas which are used in tourism development projects. In this paper a longitudinal analysis of changes in Swedish tourism guest nights with an attempt to assess the spatial changes that have taken place in the light of this new regional tourism policy are carried out. The aim is to investigate if tourism and tourism policy contributes to level out disparities between regions. The analysis is based on statistics on Swedish guest nights, on employees in the accommodation sector and on EU funds. Although there are exceptions, the main findings indicate that the potential for creating sustainable rural tourism growth through tourism policy seems to be much less than the popular discourse suggests.

    Strengthening tourism scholarship for sustainable development: the role of critical realism2018Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of incoming tourists in the world rises every year (World Bank, 2016), and this has an impact on the goals for the 2030 Agenda especially regarding climate change, sustainability of ecosystems and the availability of water (UN, 2016). Despite the internal and external controversies surrounding tourism scholarship, it is a field that has much potential to contribute to the achievement of the goals of the 2030 Agenda. In tourism research, there are still well-established and strong divisions between quantitative and qualitative research. The quantitative approach usually relies on positivism, while the qualitative approach increasingly commits to phenomenological, hermeneutic, postmodernist and constructivist positions. Furthermore, research underpinned by these assumptions often does not clearly state nor discuss epistemological or ontological issues, taking the previously mentioned positions for granted almost as they were the accepted norm.

    In this paper, I review the latest 200 articles that have been published in each of the three top tourism and hospitality journals. I comment specifically on their epistemological and ontological assumptions. I then use this review as the basis for a philosophical discussion in which I argue that critical realism can underlabour for tourism scholarship. That is, it can provide tourism scholarship with an ontology and epistemology that will allow it to effectively discover and tackle the issues that are connected to overcrowding and unsustainable destination development to ensure that the goals of the 2030 Agenda are met.

    Patient participation: what it is and what it is not2006Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In general, patient participation is regarded as being informed and partaking in decision making regarding one’s care and treatment. This interpretation is common in legislation throughout the Western world and corresponding documents guiding health care professionals, as well as in scientific studies. Even though this understanding of the word participation can be traced to a growing emphasis on individuals’ autonomy in society and to certain dictionary defi nitions, there are other ways of understanding participation from a semantic point of view, and no trace of patients’ descriptions of what it is to participate can be found in these definitions.

    Hence, the aim of this dissertation was to understand patients’ experience of the phenomenon of patient participation. An additional aim was to understand patients’ experience of non-participation and to describe the conditions for patient participation and non-participation, in order to understand the prerequisites for patient participation.

    The dissertation comprises four papers. The philosophical ideas of Ricoeur provided a basis for the studies: how communication can present ways to understand and explain experiences of phenomena through phenomenological hermeneutics. The first and second studies involved a group of patients living with chronic heart failure. For the fi rst study, 10 patients were interviewed, with a narrative approach, about their experience of participation and non-participation, as defi ned by the participants. For the second study, 11 visits by three patients at a nurse-led outpatient clinic were observed, and consecutive interviews were performed with the patients and the nurses, investigating what they experience as patient participation and non-participation. A triangulation of data was performed to analyse the occurrence of the phenomena in the observed visits. For paper 3 and 4, a questionnaire was developed and distributed among a diverse group of people who had recent experience of being patients. The questionnaire comprised respondent’s description of what patient participation is, using items based on findings in Study 1, along with open-ended questions for additional aspects and general issues regarding situations in which the respondent had experienced patient participation and/or non-participation.

    The findings show additional aspects to patient participation: patient participation is being provided with information and knowledge in order for one to comprehend one’s body, disease, and treatment and to be able to take self-care actions based on the context and one’s values. Participation was also found to include providing the information and knowledge one has about the experience of illness and symptoms and of one’s situation. Participation occurs when being listened to and being recognised as an individual and a partner in the health care team. Non-participation, on the other hand, occurs when one is regarded as a symptom, a problem to be solved. To avoid non-participation, the information provided needs to be based on the individual’s need and with recognition of the patient’s knowledge and context.

    In conclusion, patient participation needs to be reconsidered in health care regulations and in clinical settings: patients’ defi nitions of participation, found to be close to the dictionaries’ description of sharing, should be recognised and opportunities provided for sharing knowledge and experience in two-way-communication.

    The meaning of patient participation for patients and nurses at a nurse-led clinic for chronic heart failure2006Ingår i: European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 1474-5151, E-ISSN 1873-1953, Vol. 5, nr 1, s. 45-53Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BackgroundThe legislation of many Western countries emphasizes active patient participation. Patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), however, have experienced participation differently from the general interpretation of legal definitions. Education improves uptake of self-management strategies yet knowledge is lacking about support of patients' own resources in CHF.

    AimTo explore the phenomena of patient participation and non-participation as shown in patient visits to a nurse-led clinic for CHF and as experienced by the patients and nurses.

    MethodsData triangulation of field notes from participatory observations and texts from narrative interviews with the patients and assigned nurse specialists. Data were analyzed according to the phenomenological hermeneutic tradition.

    FindingsPatients' experience of participation and non-participation was interpreted as “Being responsible and accepting responsibility” and “Lacking an equal relationship while being controlled”, respectively. Nurses experienced patient participation as “Getting information and security to act” and patient non-participation as “Not accepting”.

    ConclusionConflicting values of patients and nurses, which were interpreted with respect to participation and non-participation, presumably might influence patient information and education negatively. The issue of participation should be raised as a means of attaining concordance and to facilitate patient participation with education specifically tailored to the individual patient's needs.

    The phenomena of participation and non-participation in health care: experiences of patients attending a nurse-led clinic for chronic heart failure2004Ingår i: European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 1474-5151, E-ISSN 1873-1953, Vol. 3, nr 3, s. 239-246Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Patient participation is stressed in the health care acts of many western countries yet a common definition of the concept is lacking. The understanding of experiences of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) who attend nurse-led specialist clinics, a form of care suggested as beneficiary to this group, may promote a better understanding of participation. Aim: To investigate the meanings of participation and non-participation as experienced by patients living with CHF. Methods: Narrative interviews analysed in the phenomenological hermeneutic tradition inspired by Ricoeur where the interpretation is made in the hermeneutic circle, explaining and understanding the experienced phenomena. Findings: Participation was experienced as to “be confident”, “comprehend” and “seek and maintain a sense of control”. Non-participation was experienced as to “not understand”, “not be in control”, “lack a relationship” and “not be accountable”. The findings indicate that the experiences of participation and non-participation can change over time and phases of the disease and treatment. Conclusion: The study suggests an extended view on the concept of participation. Patients' experiences of participation in health care can vary and should therefore be an issue for dialogue between nurses and patients with CHF in nurse-led specialist clinics.

    Conditions for patient participation and non-participation in health care2006Ingår i: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 13, nr 5, s. 503-514Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explored patients' experiences of participation and non-participation in their health care. A questionnaire-based survey method was used. Content analysis showed that conditions for patient participation occurred when information was provided not by using standard procedures but based on individual needs and accompanied by explanations, when the patient was regarded as an individual, when the patient's knowledge was recognized by staff, and when the patient made decisions based on knowledge and needs, or performed self-care. Thus, to provide conditions for true patient participation, professionals need to recognize each patient's unique knowledge and respect the individual's description of his or her situation rather than just inviting the person to participate in decision making.

    Barriärer och broar. Kommunikativa villkor i det svenska miljömålsarbetet2008Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sveriges riksdag har antagit 16 nationella miljökvalitetsmål. Miljömålsarbetet kan ses som en del av de insatser som krävs för att vi ska skapa en hållbar utveckling, vilken är en målsättning som ska genomsyra hela vårt samhälle. Myndigheter har tilldelats ansvaret för att de nationella miljömålen implementeras, men att målen nås är hela samhällets ansvar. I denna avhandling analyseras de kommunikativa villkoren i det svenska miljömålsarbetet. Studien bygger till stor del på erfarenheter som kommit till uttryck i de fokusgruppsintervjuer som genomförts med miljömålsansvariga tjänstemän på centrala, regionala samt kommunala myndigheter. Såväl politiska dokument som myndighetsrapportering har analyserats och satts i relation till tjänstemännens erfarenheter. Utifrån teorier om målstyrning, implementeringsprocesser och kommunikation i sociala system analyseras sedan kommunikativa barriärer och broar, hur de visar sig och kan förklaras.

    Avhandlingen visar att det finns kommunikationsbarriärer men också broar i miljömålsarbetet. När nya mål och beslut ska omsättas i etablerade organisationer uppstår kommunikationsbarriärer både inom myndigheter och i kommunikationen med andra aktörer i samhället. Att implementera beslut om ett nytt målstyrningssystem i en komplex omvärld med dess ekologiska såväl som sociala system är ingen friktionsfri process. Olika systemkoder som är i bruk kan förklara en del av problematiken, men även otydlighet i målsystem och bristande resurstilldelning. En utmaning inför framtiden blir att skapa information som ger resonans och skapar mening i olika sociala system och därigenom bidrar till möjligheterna att nå de nationella miljökvalitetsmålen.

    The match of demand and supply of public transportation (bus) services in Borlänge, Dalarna.2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Accessibility to public transport service allows mobility of people who do not have access to private cars and at the same time reduces adverse effects of motorized vehicles such as energy consumption, air pollution, etc. Government body promotes to use public transport to facilitate better living condition. However, a critical issue remains whether the public transportation services are sufficient to meet the demanded public transportation services.

    In this research, particular attention has been paid to the spatial transport service gap assessment by analyzing the demand and the supply of the public transportation services in Borlänge. The spatial aspects have been chosen based on Swedish socio-economic condition. The aim of the research is to find a generic methodology to ascertain the disparity between public transport demand and available supply of public transport especially on bus line 211, 213 & 216 in Borlänge Municipality and to visualize the disparity of transportation service using Geographical Information System (GIS) application at different areas along the bus line.

    The result indicates that existing public transport provided by Dalatrafik has a significant gap in Tronsjö, Milsbosjön, Milsbo and Viksnäs between delivered transport supply and possible transportation service needed. This transportation gap may occur due to the deficiency of service capacity and low frequency of the services. Moreover, some topics can be explored for further research such as temporal service gap analysis at each area, find alternative means of transport, flexible transportation service and etc. to improve the public transportation system in Borlänge.

    Household’s energy consumption and productionforecasting: A Multi-step ahead forecast strategiescomparison.2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In a changing global energy market where the decarbonization of the economy and

    the demand growth are pushing to look for new models away from the existing

    centralized non-renewable based grid. To do so, households have to take a

    ‘prosumer’ role; to help them take optimal actions is needed a multi-step ahead

    forecast of their expected energy production and consumption. In multi-step ahead

    forecasting there are different strategies to perform the forecast. The single-output:

    Recursive, Direct, DirRec, and the multi-output: MIMO and DIRMO. This thesis

    performs a comparison between the performance of the differents strategies in a

    ‘prosumer’ household; using Artificial Neural Networks, Random Forest and

    K-Nearest Neighbours Regression to forecast both solar energy production and

    grid input. The results of this thesis indicates that the methodology proposed

    performs better than state of the art models in a more detailed household energy

    consumption dataset. They also indicate that the strategy and model of choice is

    problem dependent and a strategy selection step should be added to the forecasting

    methodology. Additionally, the performance of the Recursive strategy is always

    far from the best while the DIRMO strategy performs similarly. This makes the

    latter a suitable option for exploratory analysis.

    An Empirical Investigation of the Merits of a Class of Analytically Tractable Matern Covariance Structures in Spatial Data Analysis2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    I investigate, using the R package spaMM, the effect of misspecification of the smoothing parameter, Q, of the Matern covariance structure on the mean part of hierarchical generalised linear models (HGLMs) with spatially correlated Gaussian Matern random effects. In particular, by restricting Q to the set {0.5, 1.5, 2.5} I examine via a simulation study the amount of bias introduced on the fixed effects estimates in which the data used to fit the model was generated with different values to the aforementioned set. The effect of misspecification was found to be minimal.

    By restricting the smoothing parameter, Q, to the set {0.5, 1.5, 2.5} I utilise the R package hglm, to develop a procedure (MaternHGLM) for fitting spatial Matern HGLMs. In particular, I constructed a hierarchical likelihood (h-likelihood) function with given correlation parameters which thus enabled me to Choleski decompose the Matern covariance matrix and utilise hglm to estimate fixed and random effects along with dispersion parameters. Using the above estimated parameters I then formed an adjusted profile h-likelihood for the estimation of the Matern scaling parameter, U, using the Newton-Raphson procedure. Simulation studies were carried out to assess the computational efficiency of MaternHGLM compared to spaMM. I found that, on average, MaternHGLM was 136% faster than spaMM.

    I also analysed two real world datasets using both spaMM and MaternHGLM. By fixing Q at the most appropriate value from the set {0.5, 1.5, 2.5} I examined to what extent, if any, did the conclusions drawn differ from those in the original study. I found that in general the conclusions were the same, however, on one of the datasets spaMM’s conclusion didn’t align at all with the original analysis even with Q estimated from the data.

    Keeping the discussion among civil servants alive: 'Platform of values' as an emerging genre within the public sector in Sweden2018Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2001-7405, E-ISSN 2001-7413, Vol. 22, nr 3, s. 17-38Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A defining feature of contemporary public authorities in Sweden is the production of texts labelled platform of values or core values. Previous research points to three main factors contributing to this development: an increased interest in ethics in the public sector, new forms of management and control, and the importance of the external promotion of public authorities. This paper focuses on the perspective of civil servants when addressing the research question: What are the most important functions of ‘platform of values’ texts? The paper draws on two types of data – a focus group of senior HR officers and a quantitative survey for civil servants. Critical Genre Analysis is presented as a methodological framework for understanding ‘value texts’ as social actions. The results show that ‘platform of values’ practices are connected to the creation of the “ethically aware” civil servant; that neither their connection to control over civil servants nor to the external promotion of the authority are directly recognised, whereas their connection to goal achievement is; and that the role of the ‘value texts’ as such has been somewhat overrated in previous research – it is the dialogue about the values that matters

    Adults with acquired traumatic brain injury: a theoretical analysis from a social recognition perspective2007Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to illuminate the changeover process experienced by people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to increase the understanding of the process of social recognition aroused after injury.

    Persons who have acquired TBI have been interviewed (in-depth) using an interview-guide. Informants were in total 15, aged 28-56. Data were first structured and analysed by latent-content analysis with a hermeneutic approach, and later re-contextualised within a matrix construct from theories of social recognition.

    The results were in the first step structured into six themes: meaning of care, meaning of action, autonomy, social interaction, theme of changes, emotions, and in the next step re-described in terms of social recognition, i.e. the individual dimension, the legal dimension and the value dimension.

    Conclusions: Significant others have had an important function as a driving force for life-situation after injury. Informants were initially satisfied with support from society. The recovery was a prolonged process, probably never ending. The individual dimension is principally connected to the individuals’ experiences of their primary-relations, e.g. next of kin. The legal dimension is closely associated to rules and regulations in society, e.g. disability rights. The value dimension is related to standards and value-system in society, e.g. solidarity.

    Adults with acquired traumatic brain injury: experience of a changeover process and consequences in every day life2005Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: The overall purpose of this study is to illuminate the changeover process experienced by people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in every day life and to increase our understanding of this process. Three main questions are in focus: (i) the process in time, (ii) social support and (iii) long-term consequences.

    Methods: Persons who as adults acquire a TBI have been interviewed using an interview guide comprising six themes: (i) consequences of TBI, (ii) family and social network, (iii) working life and occupation, (iv) life-changes, (v) support from society and (vi) every day life. The interviews are qualitative deep interviews, lasting 1-2 hours. The informants were in total 15, aged 19-53 when injured and 28-56 when interviewed.

    Results: Reported consequences were positive as well as negative, some were of physical, cognitive or psychosocial sort, e.g. 11 had problems with movements and coordination, 11 had memory disorder and 10 reported depression. The positive consequences were, e.g. better self-knowledge, deeper family ties and new life values. A majority of the informants had difficulties in returning to the work force. Almost all had in hospital rehabilitation in connection to the initial hospital care.

    Conclusion: A preliminarily conclusion shows that significant others, e.g. next of kin, have had an important function as a driving force for training and for the life-situation after injury. Moreover, a majority of those interviewed were satisfied with support from society, e.g. hospital-care, rehabilitation and community support. Such support, initially, flew without problems but demanded more of the TBI-personals’ initiatives to work out in the extension. A long-term support which deals with physical, cognitive as well as psychosocial consequences is important for the outcomes in everyday life.

    Adults with acquired traumatic brain injury: experiences of a changeover process and consequences in every day life2006Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: The overall purpose of this study is to illuminate the changeover process experienced by people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in every day life and to increase our understanding of this process. Three main questions are in focus: the process, social support and long-term consequences.

     

    Methods: Persons who as adults acquire a TBI have been interviewed using an interview guide comprising six areas: consequences of TBI, family and social network, working life and occupation, life-changes, support from society and every day life. The interviews are qualitative in-depth interviews. Informants were in total 15, aged 19-53 when injured. Data were structured and analysed by latent content analysis with a hermeneutic approach, and later within a theory of social recognition.

     

    Results: The findings were presented in six themes: the meaning of care, a question of formal versus informal support, the theme of changes, a question of process versus stagnation, the meaning of action, a question of activity versus inactivity, social interaction, a question of encounter and treatment, empowerment, a question of dependence versus independence, emotions, a oscillation between hope and hopelessness.

     

    Conclusions: A preliminarily conclusion shows that significant others, e.g. next of kin, have had an important function as a driving force for training and for life-situation after injury. A majority of the interviewed were satisfied with support from society, e.g. hospital-care, rehabilitation and community support. Such support, initially, flew without problems but demanded more of the TBI-personals’ initiatives to work out in the extension. A long-term support which deals with physical, cognitive as well as psychosocial consequences is important for outcomes in everyday life. Reported consequences were negative as well as positive.

    Returning to working life after acquired brain injury2011Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this study is to investigate the rehabilitation process facilitating return to working life after acquired brain injury (ABI) according to: (I) experiences of the rehabilitation process – possibilities and challenges, and (II) long-term perspective – factors that facilitate a sustainable working life. The study was undertaken within a disability research paradigm. Specifically, this study was derived from a social perspective in studying outcomes in vocational rehabilitation.

    Persons who acquired a brain injury as adults were interviewed using an interview guide focusing the experiences of the rehabilitation process. The informants (5 females, 5 males) had participated in a work rehabilitation program and successfully returned to work, at least 50 % for a minimum period of one year. The interviews were qualitative. Data were structured and analysed by latent content analysis with a hermeneutic approach, and analysed within a social science theory.

    The findings are preliminary. Many of those who as adults acquired a brain injury are already established at the labour market. Accordingly return to work could be seen as easier for the ABI group than for other unemployed groups of disabled. Despite this, many of those with ABI have difficulties in return to work after injury due to different circumstances. Therefore it is important to identify such circumstances. An important aim for the rehabilitation process is a long-term perspective in maintaining a job. Some factors of importance for the rehabilitation outcomes can be summarised as: assistive devices, support at the working place, social insurance and individual motivation. Such knowledge is important for the rehabilitation practitioner when meeting clients’ in the stage of work rehabilitation. The implications of this study can be useful in both rehabilitation medicines as well as for social workers in supporting people with ABI.

    Returning to working life after acquired brain injury (ABI): possibilities and challenges2010Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    The overall purpose of this study is to investigate the rehabilitation process facilitating return to working life after ABI. Two main themes are in focus: (I) experiences of the rehabilitation process – possibilities and challenges, and (II) long-term perspective – factors that facilitate a sustainable working life. The study was undertaken within a disability research paradigm, which is an interdisciplinary approach that includes medical, technical, behavioural and socio-cultural perspectives. Specifically, this study was derived from a social perspective in studying outcomes in working life after ABI.

     Methodology

    Persons who acquired a brain injury as adults were interviewed using an interview guide focusing the experiences of the rehabilitation process. The informants (6 females and 6 males) had participated in a work rehabilitation program and successfully returned to work. Importantly, at least 50 % maintained employment for a minimum period of one year. In some cases, a person (e.g. family member, service provider, and employer) who had been of great importance for the rehabilitation process was also interviewed. The interviews were qualitative, in-depth, and are being conducted longitudinally at the autumn 2010. Data will be structured and analysed by latent content analysis with a hermeneutic approach, and analysed within a social science theory.

    Results

    The findings are preliminary and can only be presented as hypotheses. Many of those who as adults acquired a brain injury are already established in the labour market. Accordingly return to work could be seen as easier for the ABI group than for other unemployed groups of disabled. Despite this, many of the cases with ABI have difficulties in returning to work after injury concerning different circumstances. Relating to that it is important to identify such circumstances, especially possibilities. An important aim for the rehabilitation process is a long-term perspective in maintaining a job after injury. Some factors of importance for the rehabilitation outcomes can be summarised as: assistive devices, support at the working place, social insurance and individual motivation.

    Conclusions

    Such knowledge is of great importance for the rehabilitation practitioner when meeting clients’ in the stage of work rehabilitation. The implications of this study can be useful in both rehabilitation medicine as well as for social workers in supporting people with ABI who have vocational goals. The common aim is to develop a program for work rehabilitation for people with ABI.

    Traumatisk hjärnskada hos kvinnor: perspektiv på kön, sexualitet och funktionshinder: en litteraturstudie med feministisk ansats2004Ingår i: Vård i Norden, ISSN 0107-4083, E-ISSN 1890-4238, Vol. 24, nr 1, s. 47-50Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is built upon tree topics: feminism, sexuality and disability. The purpose is to illuminate traumatic brain injury (TBI) among women in perspectives of gender, role and sexuality. On the basis of literature studies the article summarize (i) gender specific onsequences for women (ii) sexual consequences for women (iii) women role changes.

    The article brings up sexual consequences with TBI as increased and decreased sexual lust and problem with orgasms. Role changes are illuminated as working role, hobbyist and role as a family member. Even gender specific differences between cognition and emotion are mentioned.

    The article set focus on TBI as a hidden less recognised consequence for battered women. Gender perspectives are problemized and discussed in connection to TBI. Thinking in processes is described in purpose to give a more holistic perspective on mankind and its sexuality. Violence against women having TBI and frequents of injuries seen in a gender perspective is mentioned.

    Vuxna med förvärvad traumatisk hjärnskada: omställningsprocesser och konsekvenser i vardagslivet2006Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    BAKGRUND

    Flertalet av dem som förvärvar en traumatisk hjärnskada får vanligtvis funktionsnedsättningar av varierande slag som kan påverka vardagslivet med ibland livslånga konsekvenser som följd. Sådana förändringar kan grovt indelat vara av fysisk, perceptuell, minnesmässig och/eller kognitiv art, samt av beteende, personlighet och/eller social och relationsmässig karaktär. Tidigare studier som fokuserar de hjärnskadades egna erfarenheter av att leva med sådana funktionsnedsättningar är begränsade särskilt inom det socialvetenskapliga området. Att belysa och öka förståelsen för de hjärnskadades livssituation, omställningsprocess och återanpassning till vardagslivet är därför av betydelse och legitimerar behovet av dylika studier. Samhällsnyttan av sådana studier kan i förlängningen innebära att vård och rehabilitering, samt stöd och omsorgsformer utvecklas så att personer med förvärvad hjärnskada kan ta del av ett ännu bättre och för dem anpassat samhällsstöd.

     

    SYFTE

    Syftet med studien är att öka kunskapen för, samt att belysa omställningsprocesser och konsekvenser som vuxna personer med traumatisk hjärnskada erfar och upplever i vardagslivet och i samhällsstödet efter en förvärvad traumatisk hjärnskada.

     

    METOD

    Studien antar en intensiv (kvalitativ) ansats. Genom semistrukturerade djupintervjuer har 15 personer berättat om sina erfarenheter av att leva med traumatisk hjärnskada. Intervjuguiden består av sex frågeområden: konsekvenser till följd av skadan, familjeliv och socialt nätverk, arbetsliv och sysselsättning, livsförändring, samhällsstöd samt vardagsliv. Informanterna var vid intervjutillfället i åldrarna 28-56 år. Datamaterialet har strukturerats och analyserats induktivt, utifrån en tolkande innehållsanalys och kommer senare att analyseras abduktivt, utifrån Axel Honneths teori om socialt erkännande.

     

    RESULTAT

    Det preliminära resultatet från innehållsanalysen redovisas i sex övergripande teman som konstituerar de intervjuades erfarenheter av att leva ett vardagsliv med traumatisk hjärnskada. Dessa teman redovisas i form av dikotomier och kopplas till tidigare studier och teoretiska antaganden: Omsorgens betydelse, en fråga om informellt vs formellt stöd. Handlingens betydelse, en fråga om aktivitet vs inaktivitet. Empowerment, en fråga om självständighet vs osjälvständighet. Social interaktion, en fråga om möte och bemötande. Förändringens tema, en fråga om process vs stagnation. Emotioner, en pendling mellan hopp och hopplöshet.

     

    SLUTSATS

    Studien är i process och konklusionen är därför preliminär. Den påvisar bl.a. att betydelsefulla andra, t.ex. anhöriga har en viktig funktion att fylla som motivation och drivkraft för träning, återkomst och för livssituationen efter skadan. De intervjuade var initialt nöjda med samhällets stöd, t.ex. med avseende på rehabilitering, ett stöd som till en början fungerat väl men som senare under processen krävt allt mer av egen aktivitet för att fungera. Rapporterade konsekvenser är såväl negativa som positiva.

    Promoting empathy in social care for older people2012Ingår i: Working with Older People, ISSN 1366-3666, Vol. 16, nr 3, s. 101-110Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to identify connections between empathy and social care and to describe aspects of empathy in social care work, by bringing together research from different fields.

    Design/methodology/approach: Five doctoral theses which discussed empathy among care workers of older people in Sweden were analysed as a group. The theses had been published over the period 1996 to 2007. Methodologically, the examination underpinned an interpretive content analysis.

    Findings: The meta-analysis revealed conflicting feelings among care workers. Most experienced frustration when they were not able to express empathy in their working practices. Empathy was typically hindered by lack of time, care workers' own needs, and inflexible home care systems. However, a key element of the job-satisfaction reported by care workers appeared to be its empathic nature. Most care workers perceive encounters with older people as opportunities to respond empathically rather than indifferently. The implications of these findings are discussed.

    Originality/value: The study is an overview that attempts to build a bridge across the two concepts, social care and empathy. The main strength of this analysis is its originality of approach undertaking a specific literature review and reflecting on a subject that has not previously been explored in the Swedish context.
