    The recovery process of postpartum psychosis from both the woman's and next of kin's perspective: An interview study in Sweden2014In: Open Nursing Journal, ISSN 1874-4346, E-ISSN 1874-4346, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 8-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: Objectives: The most serious type of psychiatric disorder in connection with childbirth is postpartum psychosis. With this disorder occasionally follows emotional rejection of the infant which has serious long term effect on mother and child. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of the recovery process of postpartum psychosis from the women, from the partners of the women, and their next of kin.

    Methods: Interviews were conducted with seven women, who had previously suffered postpartum psychosis, and six of their next of kin. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed using content analysis.

    Results: Two categories emerged: the recovery process and the circumstances of the support provided. The women and their next of kin spoke about the turning point in the illness, their own personal as well as their social recovery, the importance of support not only from relatives and friends, but also from professionals, and the use of medication. However, the key to recovery was an internal decision by the women themselves.

    Conclusion: Conclusion is that the recovery from this severe mental disorder requires hard work and the key to their recovery was the decision made by the women. This disorder causes a mental darkness to descend, but at the start of the recovery a dim light shines in the dark tunnel. The nursing staff must be made aware that good sleep is important for the psychiatric treatment and that recovery may take a long time. The nurse needs to provide hope and encouragement, as well as help the woman to recognise the strength that exists within her. To reduce the risk of a recurrence of the disorder, the staff needs to offer follow up visits.

    Undocumented refugee children in Swedish healthcare: Nurses' knowledge concerning regulations and their attitudes about the care2012In: Vård i Norden, ISSN 0107-4083, E-ISSN 1890-4238, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 75-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate nurses’ attitudes about care for undocumented refugee children and also to investigate the knowledge among nurses concerning the regulations for this care. The study is quantitative and based on a questionnaire sent to all nurses working in pediatric healthcare and medical care in a medium-sized county in Sweden. The overall response was 91 questionnaires (55.9%). Most of the respondents felt insecure or lacked knowledge of what regulations are valid when undocumented refugee children seek medical care or healthcare. Almost all nurses had a positive attitude toward caring for these children, but they feel they lack knowledge about the regulations regarding their care. To optimize the care situation for these children the regulations should be reviewed and altered to allow the nurse, legally and securely, to care for them.

    A Swedish perspective on nursing and psychosocial research in paediatric oncology: A literature review2015In: European Journal of Oncology Nursing, ISSN 1462-3889, E-ISSN 1532-2122, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 310-317Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: A dramatic improvement in outcomes of survival rates of childhood cancer has been seen. Caring science research is central in providing skills and knowledge to the health care sector, but few overviews of the content of published research have been carried out. The aim of this review was to investigate the content and methodology of published studies in paediatric oncology relevant to caring science, and also to compare possible differences in content and method of the published studies from the nursing and psychosocial perspectives. Method: A systematic literature review was performed of 137 published articles on paediatric oncology relevant to caring science in Sweden. Results: The results show that most of the studies were descriptive or comparative ones with a quantitative design. Most of them focused on parents (43%) or children (28%). Most of the studies investigated wellbeing (88%), using questionnaires (54%) or interviews (38%). Several different measurement instruments had been used. While the results were often clearly presented, the clinical implications were more diffuse. The most acknowledged research fund was the Swedish Childhood Foundation (75%). Conclusions: To reflect the children' perspectives in paediatric oncology require that future researchers take on the challenge of including children (even young ones) in research. The use of a limited number of agreed measurement instruments is desirable. The biggest challenge for the future is to make a shift from explorative to intervention studies. There is an urgent need to transform research results into clinical practice. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Sjuksköterskans stöd till familjer där överviktsproblematik finns bland barn och tonåringar: En litteraturöversikt2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Overweight among children and adolescents have decreased and are now a health problem in the society. The leading cause to overweight is an unbalance between enegiintake and energiconsumption. The nurse must involve the whole family in the care of overweight child or adolescent to achieve good weight results. The long-term support from nurses is crucial for changing the families’ lifestyle. The aim of this study was to describe the nurse’s support to families with overweight children and adolescent from evidence based articles. The method that was used is a literature review based on 15 scientific articles and the result is shown that the nurse has an important role in the support of families with overweight children and adolescent. It is important for the nurse not to target the only overweight child or adolescent but to involve the whole family is of great importance since it is hard for one person alone to change its behavioural. Nurses need more education and motivation to develop and progress the support and care for the whole family.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: Depression after childbirth affects more than one out of ten new mothers and could have a negative impact on the baby’s development and the parents relationship. In Sweden every new mother is screened for postpartum depression when the baby is six to eight weeks. Postpartum depression can also affect new fathers but there is no routine for screening them.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to examine child health care nurses’ experiences and management of postpartum depression in new parents at child care center.

    Method: The study was based on eight semi-structured interviews with child health care nurses. The data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis with inductive approach.

    Results: Five categories appeared from the analysis; difficulties identifying postpartum depression, sense of inadequacy, supporting the parents, using screening instrument and to observe as well as 13 subcategories.

    Conclusion: Child health care nurses experience postpartum depression as unusual in new parents. It could be difficult to separate postpartum depression from depressive symptoms caused by other factors. They found it important to support the parents and provide comfort. Child health care nurses had positive experiences in using the EPDS screening for mothers and wished for a screening instrument for new fathers.

    Skolsköterskors upplevelse av att vara tillgänglig under skoldagen2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Availability is a central part of school nurses’ work when it comes to promoting health. Availability is seen as a precondition in order to contribute to the students’ health and learning. School nurses’ availability and presence is important and forms the base to their assignment. Former research that presents school nurses’ perspective of being available during the school day is limited.

    Aim: The aim of the study is to describe school nurses’ experience of being available during the school day.

    Method: The study has a qualitative design, with a phenomenological approach, based on a life world perspective. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight school nurses. The data was analyzed by meaning analysis.

    Result: The school nurses’ experience of being available during the school day has been assembled to five themes: To be visible in the school environment, Preconditions that affect the encounter, To create security, The meaning of support in order to delimit and To meet expectations.

    Conclusion: The school nurses experience that factors like expectations, support and physical preconditions affect their possibilities to be available during the school day. The school nurses develop strategies in order to meet students’, parents’ and the school personnels’ needs and expectations of availability. The result shows that further research is of importance in order to clarify the school nurses’ role and assignment, which could promote an equal idea of how school nurses can be available during the school day. The school nurses’ experience of being available affects their own health and well-being.

    Sjuksköterskans förebyggande åtgärder mot trycksår hos sängliggande patienter på sjukhus2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Trycksår är ett vanligt förekommande problem som medför stort lidande för den som drabbas och bidrar till extra kostnader för samhället. Syftet med studien var att sammanställa vilka förebyggande omvårdnadsåtgärder sjuksköterskor använder sig av och om de är tillräckliga för att motverka trycksår hos sängliggande patienter på sjukhus. Metoden som användes var en litteraturgranskning där artiklar samlats inom ämnet och där fokus lagts på trycksår, omvårdnadsåtgärder och riskfaktorer. Resultatet visade att det är viktigt att sätta in preventiva åtgärder i god tid för att förhindra uppkomsten av trycksår. De omvårdnadsåtgärder som sjuksköterskan använder sig av idag är riskbedömning, tryckavlastning, observation och vård av huden, nutritionsstatus och dokumentation. Slutsatsen av studien visar att det är viktigt att göra en riskbedömning och använda sig av olika hjälpmedel för att förhindra uppkomsten av trycksår. Sjuksköterskan bör bli bättre på att dokumentera i patientjournalen och införskaffa sig ny kunskap.

    Sjuksköterskors bemötande av patienter med psykisk dysfunktion: Påverkas omvårdnaden av sjuksköterskors attityder?2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The psychiatric reform act was passed in 1995 and this reform integrated patients back into their home communities and put them in contact with somatic care nurses on an outpatient basis. These changes put a high demand on the already limited resources of the municipality care profession. The objective was to determine if nurse´s attitudes influence the care for patients with mental illness. This review is based on additional science articles which were collected from the Cinahl and PsycINFO databases and manual search. The articles were analyzed with a method based on Friberg (2006). Nurses' attitudes towards mentally ill patients are influenced by perceptions that patients are aggressive, unpredictable, inward looking/apathetic and bizarre. These attitudes reflect negatively in the nurses' care and assessment. Fear, condemnation, aggression and distancing are four different approaches taken by nurses caring for mentally ill patients. In particular nurses within the somatic care have the most negative attitudes towards mentally ill patients. Misconceptions and negative attitudes have a negative impact on the care and treatment of the mentally ill. Nurses' experience combined with higher education has been demonstrated to have a positive impact.

    To feel emotional concern: A qualitative interview study to explore telephone nurses’ experiences of difficult calls2019In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 842-848Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To describe telenurses’ experiences of difficult calls.

    Design: A qualitative approach with a descriptive design was used to gain a deeper understanding of the telenurses’ experiences.

    Methods: The data were collected in spring 2017 through semi-structured interviews with 19 telenurses at call centres and primary healthcare centres and were analysed with qualitative content analysis.

    Results: Becoming emotionally concerned is central to the telenurse’s experiences of difficult calls. Difficult calls are accompanied by feelings such as inadequacy, uncertainty and anxiety, which can be described as emotional tension. Emotional tension refers to situations when the caller’s expressed emotions were conveyed to the telenurses and altered their state of mind. The telenurses stated that difficult calls that cause them to become anxious remain in their thoughts and go through their minds repeatedly, making a deep impression.

    Holistic health care: Patients' experiences of health care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse2018In: International Journal of Nursing Practice, ISSN 1322-7114, E-ISSN 1440-172X, Vol. 24, no 1, article id e12603Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) is a fairly new role in the Swedish health care system.

    AIM: To describe patients' experiences of health care provided by an APN in primary health care.

    METHODS: An inductive, descriptive qualitative approach with qualitative open-ended interviews was chosen to obtain descriptions from 10 participants regarding their experiences of health care provided by an APN. The data were collected during the spring 2012, and a qualitative approach was used for analyze.

    RESULTS: The APNs had knowledge and skills to provide safe and secure individual and holistic health care with high quality, and a respectful and flexible approach. The APNs conveyed trust and safety and provided health care that satisfied the patients' needs of accessibility and appropriateness in level of care.

    CONCLUSION: The APNs way of providing health care and promoting health seems beneficial in many ways for the patients. The individual and holistic approach that characterizes the health care provided by the APNs is a key aspect in the prevailing change of health care practice. The transfer of care and the increasing number of older adults, often with a variety of complex health problems, call for development of the new role in this context.

    Older women's experiences of suffering from urinary tract infections2014In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 23, no 9-10, p. 1385-1394Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims and objectives: To describe and explore older women's experiences of having had repeated urinary tract infections (UTIs). Background: UTIs are one of the most common bacterial infections among older women. Approximately one-third of very old women suffer from at least one UTI each year. Despite the high incidence of UTI, little is known about the impact of UTI on health and daily life in older women. Design: A qualitative descriptive design. Methods: A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews was conducted with 20 Swedish women aged 67-96 years who suffered from repeated UTIs the preceding year. The data were analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results: Two main themes were identified: being in a state of manageable suffering and depending on alleviation. Being in a state of manageable suffering was described in terms of experiencing physical and psychological health problems, struggling to deal with the illness and being restricted in daily life. Depending on alleviation was illustrated in terms of having access to relief but also receiving inadequate care. Conclusions: This study demonstrated that UTIs are a serious health problem among older women that not only affects both physical and mental health but also has serious social consequences. The women in this study described the physical and psychological health problems, struggling to deal with the illness, being restricted in daily life, depending on access to relief and receiving inadequate care. Relevance to clinical practice: It is important to improve the knowledge about how UTI affects the health of older women. This knowledge may help nurses develop strategies to support these women. One important part in the supportive strategies is that nurses can educate these women in self-care. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Varför cellprovstagning? Kvinnors uppfattning om varför det är viktigt att gå på gynekologisk cellprovskontroll2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the program for cervical cancer screening in Sweden women between the ages of 23 –60 years are called. The aim of the screening is to find abnormalities in the cell layers in anearly stage before it becomes cancer. At our practice at an antenatal clinic we discoveredthe fact that many women failed to come to their appointment. Therefore the aim of thisstudy is to describe why women find it important to participate in a cervical cancerscreening program. The method used for this study is qualitative analyses of fact from theoutcome of an inductive approach. By using this way to analyse fact the focus in put ondifferences and similarities of the results. When using qualitative analyses, there can beseveral different interpretations of the written text. Twelve women were positive toparticipate in the study. They were interviewed directly after having their test in thecervical cancer screening program at the antenatal clinic. The result came out in threegeneral categories, such as fear of cancer, joining the screening just because being calledand the chance of being declared fit. The result also shows that the women whoparticipated in the study thought that the cervical cancer screening was a chance to get acheck on their gynaecological health and saw the visit at their midwife as a chance toconverse and get some information from their midwife.

    Ska anhöriga närvara vid HLR? Ett dilemma för sjuksköterskor: En litteraturöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the first emergency procedure for a cardiac arrest. Ethical guidelines for CPR in Sweden encourage family presence during appropriate circumstances. Nurses have different roles during a resuscitation effort which includes: participation in CPR, supporting the family, etc.. Nurses should include family members in the patient's perspective and they should implement family members’ participation through interpersonal relationship and mutuality in negotiation. Purpose: To describe nurses' perceptions of family presence during CPR on adult patients in a hospital setting. Method: A literature review with 13 articles, consisting of 7 qualitative, 4 quantitative and 2 qualitative/quantitative analyzed. Results: Three categories emerged from the analysis:  A difficult decision, A challenge to deal with family members’ presence, and Opportunity with possibilities, with 7 subcategories. Conclusion: The decision to ask family to be present during CPR is perceived by nurses as a difficult one. Organizational barriers and the emotional reactions of families are factors that influence their perceptions about asking family to be present or not. Nurses perceive that it is a challenge to deal with family presence because it creates uncertainty and requires additional personal. Family presence is perceived by nurses as an opportunity with considerable potential to involve the patient’s family and for the nurses themselves to development within their profession.

    Föräldrars upplevelse av möten med vården då de söker vård för sitt barn med Downs syndrom: Parent´s experience of encounters with health care when they seek care for their child with Down´s syndrome2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bakgrund: Att ha ett barn med Downs syndrom, betyder ofta en regelbunden kontakt med vården, på grund av hälsoproblem som kan bero på syndromet. Ett bra möte är viktigt för alla, men troligen är det viktigare för dessa familjer. Syftet var att belysa hur föräldrar till barn med Downs syndrom upplevde möten då de sökte vård för sitt barn. Metod: Data insamlades genom intervjuer med sex föräldrar. Intervjuerna blev inspelade och därefter transkriberade. När data analyserades framträdde fyra teman: personalens osäkerhet, känslan av att inte bli trodd, att vara advokat för sitt barn och behovet av trygghet. Resultat: Resultatet visade att föräldrarna var mycket nöjda med de möten de haft på specialistnivå men då de sökt sig dit specialisterna inte finns kände de en viss otrygghet. Föräldrarna kände även ibland att de inte blev trodda, de kände sig ofta då ifrågasatta som föräldrar. Konklusion: föräldrarna sökte hjälp och vård där de kände sig tryggast. Vårdpersonalen behöver mer träning i hur de på bästa sätt bemöter barn med funktionsnedsättning och deras föräldrar. Att bli bemött på ett felaktigt sätt kan orsaka ett onödigt vårdlidande.

This allows the nurse is able to handle traumatic experiences in a more sympathetic manner. Then it means that the family can get the best and individual care inorder to meet the parents ' wishes and needs.

    HUR SAMTAL OM SEXUALITET FRÄMJAS BLAND SJUKSKÖTERSKOR: En litteraturöversikt2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: A persons sexual health may be affected by a number of diseases and different treatments, for example cancer and chemotherapy. Patients who experience sexual health problems often feel a need for information and want to talk about their illness with a health professional.. Nurses have a responsibility to deal with patients’ sexual issues and problems, however, even though expectations lies with them to initiate the conversation, studies reveal it rarely happens. Method: Litterature review. Objective: To compile and highlight research that describes how conversations about sexuality with patients is promoted among nurses. Results: The analysis revealed seven themes that describe how conversations about sexuality is promoted among nurses, namely by: Having knowledge, Being comfortable and responsible, Having a good patient relationship, Motivational patient situations, Having a good working environment, High job position and education and Having experience. Discussion: The results show a number of different factors that promotes nurse-patient conversations about sexuality, although, only a few with sufficient reliability to be a generalisable conclusion. Factors such as, age, experience, job position and marital status show uncertain results with low congruence. Knowledge, education and to feel comfortable with the topic are the main factors underpinning nurses’ ability to discuss sexuality with patients.

    Skolsköterskors erfarenheter av föräldrars reaktioner vid samtal om barns övervikt eller fetma i lågstadiet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Övervikt och fetma bland barn är en av de största folkhälosutmaningarna på 2000-talet och sprider sig som en epidemi i värlfärdsländer. Preventivt hälsoarbete ger en möjlighet att identifiera tidig övervikt och kunna sätta in åtgärder som hälsosamtal och rådgivande samtal i tid. Skolsköterskan har en viktig roll i att upptäcka övervikt och fetma hos barn i lågstadiet. Tidigare forskning har visat att föräldrarnas inställning och familjens livsstil har en stor inverkan på barnets övervikt. Syfte: Styftet med studien var att belysa skolsköterskors erfarenheter av föräldrars reaktioner vid samtal om barnets övervikt eller fetma i lågstadiet. Metod: Data analyserades genom innehållsanalys med en induktiv ansats. Nio intervjuer med skolsköterskor genomfördes. Resultat: Ur analysen framkom tre kategorier; förnekar situationen, förolämpad förälder, öppenhet för vägledninga med sex underkategorier. Konklusion: Skolsköterskor möter ständigt olika reaktioner från föräldrar till barn med övervikt eller fetma. Då ämnet upplevs som svårt och känsligt att samtala om finns ett stort behov av professionell handledning för att i framtiden känna sig säker och trygg i sin proffession.

    Sexualitet vid bröstcancer- kvinnors upplevelser- en litteraturstudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Sexuality is a central part of being human and follows through life. A functional sexuality is an important part of quality of life. Breast cancer represents often a big change and life can be experienced to be in chaos. Breast cancer affects women's sexual health since breasts connect with femininity, beauty and sexuality. Purpose: The purpose of this literature-based study was to describe how women experience their sexuality after suffering from breast cancer. Method: A literature-based study, in which eleven qualitative articles were analyzed. Results: The analysis resulted in three main themes: The changing body, A sexuality of change and the impact on the heterosexual relationship. Discussion: Changes in sexuality in women suffering from breast cancer was unexpected for them and affected their quality of life. They had hoped to get more information and support about how their sexuality could be affected. The study clearly demonstrates that nurses can´t meet women's desires because they feel insecure in talking about sexuality. However, it is the nurse's responsibility to give women the support they need to relieve their suffering. Conclusion: It is concluded that nurses need to gain a greater understanding of women's experiences of their sexuality after suffering from breast cancer. This is to cater to the personalized support women need.

The purpose of nursing is to improve the patient's chance of survival and quality of life. Aim: The aim was to describe the organ recipient’ experience after having a heart transplant. Method: A literature-based study where the data consisted of qualitative articles. Result: Four categories were identified; A new life situation, changed view of life, influence from others and new thoughts about the future with ten subcategories. Conclusion: The result shows that patients who have undergone a heart transplant experience a changed everyday life and belief. New insights about life and the experience of having a new chance created. This arouses a sense of gratitude and obligation towards their donor. The majority of the patients felt that the support from the health service was inadequate, both before and after the surgery and that it is the lack of information that is perceived as central.

    Finna nyckeln när orden går i baklås: Att möta och vägleda barn med selektiv mutism.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Selektiv mutism är en barndomsdiagnos som inte är allmänt känd. De här barnen förmår sig prata i vissa sociala situationer men kan tala problemfritt i andra. Om ett barn går helt tyst  i  förskolan/skolan  under  flera  år  kan  detta  orsaka  lidande  och  påverka  barnets utveckling.  Hälso-  och  sjukvården  har  en  skyldighet  att  diagnostisera  och  informera  om selektiv   mutism.   Efter   fastställd   diagnos   behövs   evidensbaserad   behandling.   En litteraturbaserad studie genomfördes med syfte att utifrån tidigare forskning sammanställa behandling som är gynnsam för barn med selektiv mutism. Resultatet presenteras genom två huvudteman med tre respektive fyra underteman. Huvudteman är ”Att skapa en allians ”och  ”Att  arbeta  målinriktat”.  Resultatet  visar  att  barn  med  selektiv  mutism  kräver, känslighet  och  ”timing”  av  insatser  för  att  skapa  en  trygg,  tillitsfull  relation  och  en arbetsallians  där  barnet  kan  finna  motivation  till  att  stegvis  övervinna  sin  rädsla  för  att prata.  Behandling  som  gav  resultat  vid  selektiv  mutism  används  även  inom  psykiatrisk omvårdnad  vid  andra  ångestdiagnoser.  Psykiatrisjuksköterskans  kunskap  är  användbar  i hälso- och sjukvården för att informera, samordna och erbjuda evidensbaserad behandling för barn med selektiv mutism.

    Sjuksköterskans bedömning vid telefonrådgivning: En litteraturöversikt2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: A telephone nurse is a nurse that during most of its working time is engaged in healthcare advice via the telephone. The advent of the telephone healthcare advice has probably meant that individuals, who initially wouldn’t have sought help, if they needed to meet healthcare providers face to face, now actually have the confidence to turn to healthcare. For telephone healthcare advice is professional care to identify, assess and advise on individuals’ reactions to actual or potential health problems. AIM: The aim of this literature review was to illuminate how the nurses´ assessment was affected during giving telephone advice. METHOD: This literature review has a qualitative approach and was conducted through twelve analyzed articles which were from the nurses’ point of view. FINDINGS: Two categories emerged from analyzing the articles. These were ethical dilemmas and assessment tools. The first category deals with the ethical dilemmas the telenurses’ are facing while giving advice via the telephone. The second category present which tools the telephone nurses have available or needs for assessment. DISCUSSION: It seems like the telenurses’ are drawn between the limited accesses to healthcare, the care seekers’ agenda and the demands of how them as nurses’ are expected to act.  CONCLUSION:   Possessing coping strategies related to stress and responsibility are valuable factors for the telenurses’ assessment process. Future research is felt to be needed on the subject of how the nurse deals with stress and the feeling of responsibility.

    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Breastcancer is one of the most common cancer types. There are only five percent who get sick under the age of 40. Because of the low number of young women who become ill, there is reason to believe that the care for them is not adapted to their life situation. Because the small number the knowledge about the women´s experiences be flawed and therefore the care for them is difficult to adapt.AIM: The aim of this study is to examine how women suffering from breast cancer before menopause are affected in their family situation and their need for support.METHOD: This study is a literature review based on nine scientific articles.RESULTS: The results show that young women felt misfit in the breastcancer care. They experience that there is no care for women in their age. It is a difficult situation to live in the middle of life with children, partner and carrier during the diagnosis and treatment of breastcancer which for many leads to a life suffering.CONCLUSIONS: It is important to illuminate the young women’s experience to make the care more fitted to them. This knowledge facilitates nurse’s work to see every patient as unique, and treat them after that.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world and the amount of people affected in Sweden increasing every year. The diagnosing process of cancer is a sensitive subject and it leads to existential questions followed by a perceived change in the body image. Cancer could also lead to a disturbance in health and lead to suffering. Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate men’s experiences of being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Method: A qualitative literature study based on twelve research articles with a qualitative approach. Results: Three categories emerged from the analysis; diagnosis a life-changing result, handle the disease is a demanding period and lack of knowledge creates insecurity followed by nine subcategories. Discussion: It is important that the nurse has knowledge about the emotions and informational needs the men experience associated to the diagnosis and how they can meet these needs through good communication and support. The nurse becomes aware of these experiences and can then promote health and ease suffering for the men. Conclusion: Men experience a life-changing period from diagnosis to the treatment decision. They need time alone in order to cope with the diagnosis followed by information and support. They also experience a deficient medical staff during this period.

    Borderline personlighetsstörning ur ett livsvärldsperspektiv: en litteraturstudie2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Borderline personality disorder (BPS) is a psychiatric diagnosis which is characterized by emotional instability and relation problems. Both family members and health care personnel express difficulties in contact with persons with BPS. The purpose of this literature review is to compile and highlight research and autobiographies that describe how people with BPS perceive their life world. For this study a combination of two methods was used, a literature review of empirical studies and analysis of autobiographies. Four themes shows in the result: how they experience their affects, to live with emotional pain. Their view of relationships, how they experience the diagnosis as helpful or not and their contact with healthcare. The results can be applied to clinical practice by viewing deliberate self harm as a coping strategy for emotional pain and by meeting the patient with respect, understandning and a confirming attitude. Helping the person to find better strategies to handle emotional pain is also a way to apply the results of this study on clinical practice.

    Towards a standardised definition for fundamental care: a modified Delphi study2018In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 27, no 11-12, p. 2285-2299Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIMS: To generate a standardised definition for fundamental care and identify the discrete elements that constitute such care.

    BACKGROUND: There is poor conceptual clarity surrounding fundamental care. The Fundamentals of Care Framework aims to overcome this problem by outlining three core dimensions underpinning such care. Implementing the Framework requires a standardised definition for fundamental care that reflects the Framework's conceptual understanding, as well as agreement on the elements that comprise such care (i.e., patient needs, such as nutrition, and nurse actions, such as empathy). This study sought to achieve this consensus.

    DESIGN: Modified Delphi study.

    METHODS: Three phases: (1) engaging stakeholders via an interactive workshop; (2) using workshop findings to develop a preliminary definition for, and identify the discrete elements that constitute, fundamental care; and (3) gaining consensus on the definition and elements via a two-round Delphi approach (Round 1 n=38; Round 2 n=28).

    RESULTS: Delphi participants perceived both the definition and elements generated from the workshop as comprehensive, but beyond the scope of fundamental care. Participants questioned whether the definition should focus on patient needs and nurse actions, or more broadly on how fundamental care should be delivered (e.g., through a trusting nurse-patient relationship), and the outcomes of this care delivery. There were also mixed opinions whether the definition should be nursing specific.

    CONCLUSIONS: This study has initiated crucial dialogue around how fundamental care is conceptualised and defined. Future work should focus on further refinements of the definition and elements with a larger, international group of practising nurses and service users. This article is protected by copyright.

    Upplevelser av övergång från barn- till vuxenklinik hos ungdomar med typ 1- diabetes2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Currently there are 7-8000 children and adolescents with type 1- diabetes in Sweden. Diabetes type-I is a chronic disease and require daily blood glucose tests to determine insulin-doses, food intake and physical activity. The transition from pediatric- to adult clinic occurs at the age of 18. This leads to new health care professionals, routines and increased self-management.

    Purpose: Describe the experience of the transition from pediatric- to adult clinic at young people with diabetes type-I.

    Method: A qualitative content analysis was used and data were collected by questionnaires with open questions.

    Results: From the analysis of the data three main categories were identified; “uncertainty”, “unprepared” and “treatment”. The adolescents felt worried about the transition from pediatric to adult clinic. They wanted to receive earlier information in advance about the changes that would occur at the adult clinic. They indicated the importance of early, personal relationship with the staff at the adult clinic.

    Conclusion: It´s important to prepare the adolescents in a timely manner. The staff from the adult clinic should therefore be involved in the adolescents before the transition in order to create a personal relationship and to reduce uncertainty and ill-being.

    Hur upplever sjuksköterskor vårdmöten med patienter från annan kulturell bakgrund: en litteraturstudie2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Sweden has become a multicultural society the last decades. A good communication is an important aspect in nursing. If patient and nurse can‟t communicate with each other, it may lead to unnecessary suffering for the patient and a trying situation for the nurses. The cultural aspects can affect the encounter and the communication with a patient from a different culture. Earlier studies show the importance of knowledge about other cultures among the nurses. AIM: The purpose of the study is to describe nurses‟ experience in the encounter with patient from a different culture background. METHODS: A qualitative literature study is designed to find an answer to the purpose of the study. RESULTS: Three main categories were found; Culture competence acknowledges communication difficulties and cultural obstacle in the nursing encounter. The main problem in all the study was language barriers. Nurses experienced that they didn´t give the same individual care to those patient who couldn´t speak the language. Nurses also expressed that they had little knowledge about the patients‟ culture. CONCLUSION: The nurses need more knowledge about other cultures, be open-minded and show respect for others thoughts and values. It´s need for more research about cultural competence and more resources as nurses and translators and employment of more nurses with foreign background.

    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Type 2 diabetes has in recent years increased dramatically worldwide. An unhealthy lifestyle habit such as improper diet and physical inactivity plays a major role. Making a lifestyle change to prevent disease or to decrease symptoms may be perceived as setbacks. PURPOSE: The aim of this literature-based study is to elucidate patients' experiences of the lifestyle changes that involve the diagnosis of diabetes type 2. METHOD: The study was conducted as a literature-based study and the result is based on twelve research articles. FINDINGS: Three categories were identified from the analysis: A strenuous change in life, strength for self-responsibility and increased will through support. CONCLUSION: Patients experience unsatisfying support. It is important how the support is given from family and care-professionals and it plays a huge role in the patient’s way to a healthier lifestyle. The importance of respect, listening, and confirming the struggle is essential for the patient’s wellbeing.

    Kvinnors upplevelser av hur bröstcancer påverkar deras livssituation: - En litteraturöversikt2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Breast cancer is one of the most common cancer diagnoses among women. Approximately 7 000 Swedish women are diagnosed with the disease every year. Despite the amount of breast cancer diagnoses the prognosis are good and 75 percent of the women survives from the disease during a 10 year period. The aim of this study was to shed light on women’s experiences of how breast cancer affects their life situation. The method was a literature review. The analyse resulted in three main themes and seven subthemes. The main themes became: Transition from healthy to sick, Existential changes and The impact of health care providers. The results showed that women with breast cancer lose their identity and these losses lead to feelings of fear and suffering. Their life perspective changed and they realized what’s important in life. They now focus on relationships and their own interests.   Furthermore, our result showed that women experience support from relationships and health care providers as important.

    Att leva med bröstcancer: en litteraturstudie2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Breast cancer is the most common cancer disease among women in the world and the risk to get sick in Sweden before the age of 75 is one out of 10. When an individual get stroke by a disease life drastically changes from healthy to sick over night. Getting a breast cancer diagnosis often means you have to remove part of or the whole breast, and the procedure is complimented by treatments and medical products. Living with a disease is a unique individual experience and the patient’s experiences of suffering are related to feeling of the disease and the diagnosis. That means that a person isn’t sicker than he experiences himself to be. To be able to meet a patient’s basic and specific caring needs, the nurse must be aware of individual experiences of a disease, which this study result shows. The aim of this study is to describe women’s different experiences of living with breast cancer. The authors used a qualitative literature method based on Friberg (2006), analysing qualitative research and compiling it to a new result. The result shows individual experiences of living with breast cancer and it’s described in two categories;  suffering and  maturation and nine subcategories; threatened self-image, powerless, menopause, need of information, discomfort and pain, loneliness, destroyed future, spirituality and inner strength. As the result shows, every individual lived experience of an episode is a mirror of women’s life situations and where they were in life before getting a diagnosis. The result also shows that women somehow became strengthened through illnesses, grew as human beings and therefore reprioritize what’s important in life. The work of a nurse should focus on seeing women’s individual experiences and needs and through that support them through their coping strategies to reach their inner strength.

    Ett klipp är inte bara ett klipp: Barnmorskors resonemang kring episiotomi2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The midwife will care for and support the woman throughout the childbirth process. There may occur situations during childbirth when certain measures, like episiotomy, need be taken in relation to the advance of the fetus. Studies reveal different advantages, as well as disadvantages associated with episiotomy. Given the multitude of opinions with regards to episiotomy, it is important that midwives have a clear stance on the procedure since they are in charge of the woman who is giving birth.

    Aim: To investigate midwives' reasoning on the subject of episiotomy.

    Method: Semi-structured interviews with nine midwives. The data underwent qualitative content analysis, and inductive approach was applied.

    Results: The results present a theme, A roller coaster, containing two categories, Varied attitudes to episiotomy and The secure before the insecure, these resulted in six subcategories. The midwives felt that episiotomy should not be conducted unless absolutely necessary. Midwives further felt that growing experience helped them to determine in what situations episiotomy would have a positive effect on the childbirth process.

    Conclusion: The midwives are cautious about the use of episiotomy reserving it for special situations when the procedure is deemed absolutely necessary. Patience, an important characteristic for a midwife, in conjunction with work experience made it easier to determine when the woman giving birth was in need of episiotomy.

    Att göra eller att vara i samtalet: Skolsköterskors erfarenhet av att kommunicera med skolelever2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to describe the school health nurses experience of talking with pupils during the health dialogue, and to achieve a deeper understanding of the communication between the nurse and the pupil. The data collection was made by interviewing ten school nurses. The method used was a quality content analysis with an inductive approach. During the analysis appears the theme: To act or to be, and four subthemes: To treat with respect, to make a room for communication, to be present and to use your experience during the health dialogue. Some of the school nurses describe how they used the method, Motivating Interview, to increase the possibility to in a god way, meeting the pupils. The school nurses declare how their reflection increases their knowledge and their skills, and this experience is used for the future. These findings relate to Rosemarie Rizzo Parses theory of human becoming, and were found to contribute an apprehension for the individual communication. The study increases the knowledge of the communication and how to make it possible during the health dialogue, to change the pupils’ way of living aiming at a better health.

    Sjuksköterskans information till hjärtinfarktspatienter för att förhindra oro och rädsla efter sjukhusvistelsen2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A major part of the Swedish population suffers from myocardial infarction. A wish in the study is to give nurses an increasing knowledge about what patients with myocardial infarction wish to be informed about so that the nurses can meet these patients as good as possible.

    The aim is to show what nurses need to inform heart patients about to prevent anxiety and fear after hospital care.

    The method used was literature reviews where seven articles were reviewed according to Polit, et. al., (2001). The databases used were Cinahl and ELIN.

    Results: There is a dissonance between what the patient and what the nurse is ranking to be the most important item to be informed about after a myocardial infarction. The patients prioritize information about symptoms and lifestylechanges. The nurses prefer that support in the community is the most important effort to inform about.

    Discussion: It has come to light what the patients want to have information about and what the nurses feel is important to inform about. It has not come to light if the information from the nurse reduces the patients anxiety and fear after their stay at the hospital.

    Conclusion: It is important that the patient get a chance to have an active role in the information process and as much as possible get involved in the decision making on what information to give.

    Kvinnors upplevelser av att genomgå inducerad abort: En kvalitativ bloggstudie2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Kvinnor har genomgått inducerad abort i alla tider över hela världen. Säkra aborter räddar liv och är en viktig del av den reproduktiva och sexuella hälsan. Trots att abortlagstiftningen i Sverige har blivit liberal med tiden finns det fortfarande attityder gentemot inducerad abort som gör det till ett tabubelagt och kontroversiellt ämne, både i Sverige och internationellt. Syfte: Att belysa svensktalande kvinnors upplevelser av att genomgå inducerad abort. Metod: En kvalitativ bloggstudie med induktiv ansats och analys av narratives. Nio bloggar med totalt 12 inlägg och 31 kommentarer inkluderades i studien. Resultat: Upplevelserna var varierande och resulterade i tre huvudteman; den emotionella aborten, den fysiska aborten samt stöd och bemötande. Dessa teman fick totalt sju subteman. Konklusion: Det finns en stor variation i kvinnors upplevelser av inducerad abort. Kvinnorna upplever känslor som sorg och skam samt lättnad och glädje. De beskriver såväl smärta som smärtfrihet och komplikationer såväl som komplikationsfrihet. De upplever att de får ett gott stöd och bemötande från både vårdpersonal och anhöriga samt brist på såväl information som stöd från vårdpersonal och anhöriga.
