Abstract [en]

PURPOSE: To address the consequences of living with supraventricular tachycardia and to improve the quality of treatment, there is a need to highlight patient experiences of treatment with catheter ablation. Therefore, the aim was to describe the phenomenon of catheter ablation, as it is experienced by patients being treated awake.

METHODS: A descriptive design was applied based on a reflective lifeworld research founded on phenomenological epistemology. Interviews were conducted between December 2021 and Mars 2022 with seven women and five men, three to twelve months after they underwent catheter ablation.

RESULTS: Patients undergoing catheter ablation while awake during treatment, which includes experiences of relying on others expertise, being actively passive, and striving to be cured. It entails experiences of having a foreign object moving in one's body and heart and can be endured through strategies of mainly shifted one's mental focus.

CONCLUSIONS: The effort of undergoing a catheter ablation procedure is worthwhile as the confirmation of a physical curable condition that opens a future with possibilities instead of the obstacle in daily life that tachycardia entails. For the patients, an informative and caring conversation was needed that would have provided the support they lacked before and during the ablation.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Outpatients seek to visit health care facilities for episodes of tachycardia-related signs and symptoms. The challenge for physicians is to balance a proper initial assessment and avoid overlooking a possible arrhythmia. This common clinical situation affects individuals and health care utilization, and effective management may substantially affect health care resources. This study aimed to explore health care utilization for outpatients with episodes of tachycardia visiting health care centres (HCCs) and/or emergency departments (EDs). METHOD: This retrospective study used data of adult outpatients (≥ 18 years) who were assessed by a physician as having a specific or nonspecific diagnosis of arrhythmia between 2017 and 2018, and data were retrieved from medical records and a regional registry database. Data was analysed with appropriate statistical analyses to identify disparities between sex, age and terms of search pattern for each health care facility. Analysis of variance was used to test disparities between the sexes, and one-factor ANOVA was used for the incidence of missed arrhythmias. RESULTS: A total of 2719 visits with 2373 outpatients were included in the study. The result showed a significant difference in the total number of visits (n = 2719) between female and male patients (68% vs. 32%, p < .001). In the 60-69- and 70-79-year age groups, females had significantly higher frequencies of visits than males (p = .018). A significant difference was also observed between sexes in terms of which health care facility they tended to visit (p < .001). Ninety-five percent of the outpatients visiting EDs were hospitalized. When estimating the incidence of missed arrhythmias (diagnoses) in relation to assessments, the results showed a 5% missed diagnosis involving potential atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia and atrioventricular re-entry tachycardia. Moreover, the referral rate was low, especially from HCCs to cardiologists. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows a significant difference in total visits in HCCs and/or EDs by patients of different sexes and indicates the need for improved care for outpatients with episodes of tachycardia. Sex- and age-related differences must be addressed with an aim of providing equal care. Finally, the low rate of referral from HCCs to cardiologists compared to the high proportion of hospitalizations from EDs, deserves further investigation.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Healthcare organisations are often described as less innovative than other organisations, since organisational culture works against innovations. In this paper, the authors ask whether it has to be that way or whether is possible to nurture an innovative culture in a healthcare organisation. The aim of this paper is to describe and analyse nurturing an innovative culture within a healthcare organisation and how culture can support innovations in such a healthcare organisation.

Design/methodology/approach: Based on a qualitative case study of a healthcare unit that changed, within a few years, from having no innovations to repeatedly generating innovations, the authors describe important aspects of how innovative culture can be nurtured in healthcare. Data were analysed using inductive and deductive analysis steps.

Findings: The study shows that it is possible to nurture an innovative culture in a healthcare organisation. Relationships and competences beyond healthcare, empowering structures and signalling the importance of innovation work with resources all proved to be important. All are aspects that a manager can influence. In this case, the manager's role in nurturing innovative culture was very important.

Practical implications: This study highlights that an innovative culture can be nurtured in healthcare organisations and that managers can play a key role in such a process.

Originality/value: The paper describes and analyses an innovative culture in a healthcare unit and identifies important conditions and strategies for nurturing innovative culture in healthcare organisations.

Abstract [en]

Background: Transition into clinical practice for newly graduated nurses is a difficult time, with high stress levels defined by a demanding period of personal and professional acclimatisation. Transitions are complicated and multi-dimensional, and to understand this process, it is crucial to identify the factors that facilitate or stand in the way of a healthy transition.

Aim: The phenomenological study aimed to describe newly graduated nurses’ expectations of transitioning into the nursing profession at the start of a clinical nursing introduction programme, including education, supervision, and critical reflection with peers.

Method: The study was based on seven group interviews with newly graduated nurses. The interviews utilised open-ended and follow-up questions and were carried out as a dialogue to enable reflection on the phenomenon of interest. This was explored and illuminated using the reflective lifeworld research approach, based on phenomenological epistemology.

Findings: “Expectations of transition into the nursing profession viathe Clinical Nursing Introduction Programme” is signified by an oscillating movement between uncertainty, security, challenge, and growth on the threshold of a new identity. The phenomenon is constituted by the courage to grow, responsibility and fear, belonging and vulnerability, and support and challenge.

Conclusion: Transitioning into the nursing profession viathe Clinical Nursing Introduction Programme means having the best of both worlds. Newly graduated nurses have the opportunity to receive education and structured support at the same time as they work independently in clinical practice.

Abstract [en]

Purpose – This paper applies systems thinking modelling to enhance the dynamic understanding of how to nurture an innovative culture in healthcare organisations to develop the innovation system in practice and speed up the innovative work. The model aims to provide a holistic view of a studied healthcare organisation’s innovation processes, ranging from managerial values to its manifestation in improved results.

Design/methodology/approach – The study is based on empirical material from a healthcare unit that, within a few years, changed from having no innovations to repeatedly generating innovations. The study uses the modelling language of causal loop diagrams (CLDs) in the system dynamics methodology to identify the key important aspects found in the empirical material.

Findings – The proposed model, based on the stories of the interviewees, explores the dynamics of inertia when nurturing an innovative culture, identifying delays attributed to the internal change processes and system relationships. These findings underscored the need for perseverance when developing an innovative culture in the entrepreneurial phases.

Practical implications – The approach of using systems thinking to make empirical healthcare research results more tangible through the visual notations of CLDs and mental simulations is believed to support exploring complex phenomena to induce and nurture both individual and organisational learning.

Originality/value – The results from this approach provide deepened analysis and provoke the systems view to explain how the nurturing of the culture can accelerate the innovation processes, which helps practitioners and researchers to further expand their understanding of their healthcare contexts.

Abstract [en]

Introduction High levels of nursing turnover represent a problem for healthcare organisations and patient safety. Experiences during the first years in the nursing profession have a significant impact on nurses' future decisions concerning their careers. Nurses at the start of their professional career need to practise their hands-on skills as well as their theoretical knowledge. In addition, new graduate nurses need regular support and opportunities to reflect on experiences in their new profession. The aim of the present study is to describe the Clinical Nursing Introduction Program (CNIP) and present a study design in which the programme is used to support new graduate nurses' transition into the nursing profession. Method and analysis The present study examines the CNIP at a general hospital in southwest Sweden, which lasts for 14 months. The programme has a unique profile based on a person-centred approach and consists of five components: employment and organisation, a compulsory introduction week, two placements in different clinical settings, education days and process-oriented nursing supervision. The present study presents a protocol for a prospective longitudinal cohort study, using qualitative and quantitative methods in the collection and analysis of data. Measurements will include data collection between 2019 and 2023 when the nurses start the CNIP (baseline) and then after 1 and 2 years. Ethics and dissemination This study has been approved by the Regional Ethical Review Board in Gothenburg (Dnr 1056-18). Study findings will be presented at national and international conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals. Trial registration number 273573 (https://www.researchweb.org/is/vgr).

Abstract [en]

Background: Symptom burden, impaired functional performance and decreased quality of life are not only consequences of the underlying physiological disorder chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but also dependent on a patient’s ability to learn to live with and manage their illness. A digital website may be important for empowering patients with COPD to learn about and self-manage their illness. The aim of this study was to describe a developing process of a digital COPD-web as a part of a self-management education program for persons living with COPD. Methods: A qualitative approach with a phenomenological perspective was used. The study was based on group and individual interviews with a multidisciplinary COPD-team and patients who developed the COPD-web. Results: The developing process appears as a person-centred and holistic self-care approach both in content and development. Developing a digital COPD-web requires ongoing multi-disciplinary collaboration and spawns a sense of pride that reinforces shared responsibility. The phenomenon consists of four constituents: learning by participating in development, the patient perspective as guiding approach, responsibility and motivation as driving forces and digital technology as a knowledge arena. Conclusion: The results indicate that constructive collaboration between a multidisciplinary COPD-team and patients as co-creators in an ongoing creative and reflective process is a key concept to develop a digital COPD-web with a holistic approach. Digital resources in the future might create time and space for reflective conversations in a COPD-web with virtual chatrooms.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Insomnia symptoms have become increasingly common in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Increasing evidence suggests comorbidity between personality traits and health status. Considering personality traits may act as a predisposition for future illness; this state may influence sleep quality and it appears to precipitate cardiac events in high-risk patients.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate self-reported sleep deficiency in relation to vicious cycle of sleeplessness (VCS) behavior, hyperarousal behavioral trait (H-personality), and type D personality traits in patients with CAD and in a population-based group. Furthermore, our aim was to explore the association of VCS behavior with H-personality trait and type D personality. Finally, we investigated to what extent type D personality can explain self-reported too little sleep in patients with CAD.

METHODS: An observational case-control design was applied comprising 859 patients in cardiac outpatient care and 859 participants from a population-based group. Questionnaires assessing VCS behavior, H-personality, type D personality, and perceptions of too little sleep were used.

RESULTS: Statistically significant higher scores of a hyperarousal and sleeplessness behavior were revealed for those with too little sleep compared with those with sufficient sleep in both the patient and the population-based group. Age, female gender, or sleeplessness behavior significantly predicted too little sleep (P < .001).

CONCLUSIONS: The current study highlights the advantage of studying heterogeneity in patients with CAD from a person-centered perspective with focus to identify distressed individuals in order to prevent or treat sleep deficiency. A cluster of factors may be a more accurate predictor of patient-reported outcomes than a single psychosocial factor.

Abstract [en]

Background: The number of people suffering from diabetes worldwide, including Sweden, has increased. To strengthen the patient's empowerment and thus improve their ability to take care of their own health, patient education in self-care management plays a central role in diabetes care. Purpose: The specific aim in this study was to describe patients' experiences of group-based education using the Taking charge of one's life with type 2 diabetes model. Methods: A qualitative approach with a phenomenological lifeworld perspective was used. The study was based on group and individual interviews and reflection books. Results: The group-based education model made it possible for the patients to learn through reflection concerning their own and others' experiences. The learning that occurred with support from the group reflections and the reflection books contributed to the understanding of the complexity of the illness. This increased the motivation and desire to be responsible for the treatment and implementation of habits. The group contributed to a sense of belonging and community that inspired a continued and active learning. Conclusion: The results showed that from the patients' perspective, this didactic model was both suitable and appreciated, supporting and facilitating learning.

Abstract [en]

Aim:To describe how the group education process for people with type 2 diabetes is experienced by diabetes nurses and dietitians who support the patients’ learning, in a primary care setting.

Design:The project took place at two primary care settings in the south of Sweden.

Methods:Data collected from focus‐group interviews and reflection notes were subjected to phenomenological analysis.

Results:The specially trained personnel experienced that group education made it possible for the patients to learn through reflection concerning their own and others’ experiences. Furthermore, group education entailed increased knowledge for the trained personnel. When the patients were challenged to make changes in their lives with the illness, the personnel experienced that both patients and personnel supported each other. The study concludes that the trained personnel person‐centred approach, with help of the didactic model, get tools to support patients learning.
