Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to elucidate meanings of balance in everyday life for people with long-term illnesses living at home. People living with long-term illnesses are in need of help and support to manage their daily lives. Twelve adults with extensive needs for help and support were interviewed. A phenomenological hermeneutic interpretation was used to analyse the interview texts. The findings show that balance in everyday life for people with long-term illnesses means striving for independence through care and support in their surroundings. It was also important to be able to choose how their lives would be and to be with others who listened and understood them for who they are. By building a relationship with patients at an early stage of their illnesses, nursing staff have an opportunity to understand what people who are living at home with long-term illnesses need in order to achieve balance in their everyday lives.

Abstract [en]

Background: Breastfeeding problems are common during the early period but can often be prevented or overcome with adequate support. Child-health nurses meet almost all children during their first weeks of life and play an important role in promoting breastfeeding and in strengthening parents’ confidence and their belief in their own ability. It is, therefore, important to gain more knowledge about child-health nurses’ experiences. Objective: To describe child-health nurses’ experiences of providing breastfeeding support. Methods: This qualitative study is descriptive with an inductive approach. A purposive sample of eight child-health nurses recruited from district health care centers participated. Data were collected through focus group interviews and analyzed with content analysis. Results: Child-health nurses consider it to be important to provide early breastfeeding support and that early hospital discharge following birth can complicate breastfeeding. Furthermore, the introduction of infant formula and tiny tastes given to the baby can be a barrier to breastfeeding. Parents’ confidence had an effect on breastfeeding, and breastfeeding is promoted by confident parents. Trends and cultural differences have an influence on parents’ attitudes toward breastfeeding. Child-health nurses stated the importance of having a consensus breastfeeding policy. Conclusion and Recommendation: A number of factors affect breastfeeding, and breastfeeding support from child-health nurses is important in the early stages after birth. To conclude, the support must be individually tailored with a focus on the parents’ needs. There is a need for greater cooperation between the maternal care and child-health care staff in order to provide adequate and continuous breastfeeding support throughout the care chain.

Abstract [en]

Type 1 diabetes can complicate the lives of young people. The aim was to describe the experiences of young people living with Type 1 diabetes when entering adulthood. Nine young people were interviewed. The general principles of interpretative descriptions were used in the analysis. Results showed that young people with Type 1 diabetes lived a life like other young people, but they often had to face a lack of knowledge and understanding. Although they knew how to live, it was not easy to be in control. Even if they took responsibility for their illness, support was critically important. They did not think so much about how their illness might impact their future life. Overall, young people described their life situation positively and dealt with their diabetes naturally. To better support and facilitate the transition to adulthood, health care professionals who are engaged with young people living with Type 1 diabetes need to have better insight into how they experience their life.

Abstract [en]

Having continued hospital support, even after returning home, in the form of videoconferencing between their home and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), is of great importance for parents of preterm born infants. It is essential to elicit parents' views before providing videoconferencing access to parents. Therefore, the aim of this study was to ascertain the views of parents of preterm infants toward the use of real-time videoconferencing between their home and the NICU. Twelve parents, who participated in the study, were interviewed. Thematic content analysis of their interview texts was carried out. The analysis revealed three categories: willing to try; addition to the conventional care; might facilitate taking the step to go home. The theme identified from content analysis was ‘grabbing the chance to get extra support’. Parents view videoconferencing facility as a possible chance to get extra support. It appears to be one among several other ways to support families after returning home with their preterm infants.

Abstract [en]

Introduction. Information and communication technology (ICT) are becoming a natural part in healthcare both for delivering and giving accessibility to healthcare for people with chronic illness living at home. Aim. The aim was to review existing studies describing the use of ICT in home care for communication between patients, family members, and healthcare professionals. Methods. A review of studies was conducted that identified 1,276 studies. A selection process and quality appraisal were conducted, which finally resulted in 107 studies. Results. The general results offer an overview of characteristics of studies describing the use of ICT applications in home care and are summarized in areas including study approach, quality appraisal, publications data, terminology used for defining the technology, and disease diagnosis. The specific results describe how communication with ICT was performed in home care and the benefits and drawbacks with the use of ICT. Results were predominated by positive responses in the use of ICT. Conclusion. The use of ICT applications in home care is an expanding research area, with a variety of ICT tools used that could increase accessibility to home care. Using ICT can lead to people living with chronic illnesses gaining control of their illness that promotes self-care.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to describe the deve- lopment, planning and implementing of an internet- based intervention program for providing support to families with prematurely born infants. During the families initial stay at home with their infant; families were given access to use of videoconference system from their home to have contact with staff at the neonatal unit, via direct link, throughout twenty-four hours. This program successfully ended, and video- conferencing is incorporated as a tool to support families after coming home. Probably, a variety of factors has contributed to make this program suc- cessful, as for example user friendliness and the close collaboration between researchers and staff at the neonatal unit. In conclusion, Information and Com- munication Technology (ICT) must be taken into consideration in developing upcoming care, thereby making possible a program to extend accessibility to health care.

Abstract [no]

Forældre til for tidigt fødte børn må klare mange vanskelige og stressfyldte situationer of forældrenes usikkerhed i deres forældrerolle, er veldokumenteret i flere undersøgelser. Når de bliver udskrivet fra hospitalet, opstår nye udfordringer og et større forældreansvar. Forældrene har derfor brug for støtte fra mennesker, der har ekspertviden om det præmature barns behov, udvikling og pleje. Det är vanskeligt at tilbyde støttemuligheder i et område med store geografiske afstande, hvilket er tilfældet i Nordsverige. Dette var en af de faktorer, der bidrog til at vi startade projektet med at udvikle og afprøve et internetbaseret interventions program, for at kunne give støtte til familier med for tidligt fødte børn.
