    Technologies in older people's care: Values related to a caring rationality2017In: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 125-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUNDThe tension between care-based and technology-based rationalities motivates studies concerning how technology can be used in the care sector to support the relational foundation of care.OBJECTIVESThis study interprets values related to care and technologies connected to the practice of good care.RESEARCH DESIGNThis research study was part of a development project aimed at developing innovative work practices through information and communication technology. Participants and research context: All staff (n = 18) working at two wards in a care facility for older people were asked to participate in interviews, and 12 accepted. We analysed the data using latent content analysis in combination with normative analysis. Ethical considerations: The caregivers were informed that participation was voluntary and that they could drop out at any time without providing any explanation.FINDINGSFour values were identified: 'presence', 'appreciation', 'competence' and 'trust'. Caregivers wanted to focus on care receivers as unique persons, a view that they thought was compromised by time-consuming and beeping electronic devices. Appraising from next-of-kin and been seen as someone who can contribute together with knowledge to handle different situations were other desires. The caregivers also desired positive feedback from next-of-kin, as they wanted to be seen as professionals who have the knowledge and skills to handle difficult situations. In addition, the caregivers wanted their employer to trust them, and they wanted to work in a calm environment.DISCUSSIONCaregivers' desire for disturbance-free interactions, being valued for their skills and working in a trustful working environment were interpreted as their base for providing good care. The caregivers' arguments are based on caring rationality, and sometimes they felt the technological rationality interfered with their main mission, providing quality care.CONCLUSIONIntroducing new technology in caring should support the caring relationship. Although society's overall technology-based approach may have gained popularity as a problem solver, technology-based rationality may compromise a care-based rationality. A shift in attitudes towards care as a concept on all societal levels is needed.

    Staff expectations on implementing new electronic applications in a changing organization2012In: The Health Care Manager, ISSN 1525-5794, E-ISSN 1550-512X, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 208-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study was undertaken to describe staff expectations prior to implementation of new electronic applications in a changing organization. Changes are a part of human existence; changes based on implementation of technology and information and communication technology are taking place in the health care sector globally. The Swedish public health care and social care sector is taking a similar path. A qualitative approach with group interviews of 23 staff divided in 5 groups was performed. Latent content analysis was used to analyze the transcribed interviews. The theme, taking standpoint today in relation to the past, emerged from 3 areas of discussion: "distance holding," "ruled by the organization," and "health care development in the future." New restraints on staff affect the caregiving process. Managers should consider whether a particular change is revolutionary or evolutionary and act in the change process according to the possible psychological impact of the change.

    Digital support for medication administration: Status-enhancing innovation for care workers?2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There are assumptions that innovative ICT solutions in healthcare can improve the efficiency and contribute to increased quality. Innovation through ICT is also expected to increase status of and attract men to care work.A project aimed at finding innovative ICT solutions was realized between 2009 and 2012. The project involved a healthcare center and two nursing homes. Technicians (all men) were those in the project given the assignment of finding innovative solutions together with staff. Involved in the project were also ICT companies and academic researchers. This research study was undertaken in a nursing home context. A tool for medication administration was under development and to be tested.Purpose; to describe staff’s perceptions of digital support for medication administration and understand staff’s underlying values when arguing for or against the tool.Data collection; focus-group interviews were carried out to collect data. To analyze and interpret the content of the data, a phenomenographic method was used.Findings; Participants questioned the utility and also the need of the ICT solution. Participants also expressed a risk for impaired working environment as an effect of the tool. They also thought the tool would be complicated to use and sometimes would lack in performance. Increased status as an effect of introducing ICT was a belief that was not held by the staff.Conclusions; Setting aside the fact that from the perspective of an outsider, the intention of the project was indeed to do good , staff did not perceive the ICT solution in a positive manner. Politicians and policymakers may be over emphasizing the possibilities of ICT for solving future challenges in healthcare. Focus on technological innovations and a discourse in which care workers are excluded can actually be contra-productive to the possibilities of enhancing the status of care work, which is still predominantly performed by women

    Why do smokers diagnosed with COPD not quit smoking?: a qualitative study2012In: Tobacco Induced Diseases, ISSN 1617-9625, E-ISSN 1617-9625, Vol. 10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is currently one of the most widespread chronic lung diseases and a growing cause of suffering and mortality worldwide. It is predicted to become the third leading cause of death in the near future. Smoking is the most important risk factor, and about 50% of smokers develop COPD. Smoking cessation is the most important way to improve prognosis. The aim of the study was to describe difficulties of smoking cessation experienced by individuals with COPD who are unable to stop smoking. MethodsTen smokers (five women) with COPD, GOLD stage II, participated in semi-structured interviews in 2010. The data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The participants were recruited from the Obstructive Lung Disease in Northern Sweden (OLIN) studies. ResultsThe participants lives were governed by a lifelong smoking habit that was difficult to break although they had knowledge about the harmful effects and the consequences of COPD. The participants described incidents in their lives as reasons for never finding the time to quit smoking. Demands to quit smoking from other people could lead to continued smoking or get them started again after cessation as they did not want to be patronized. They wanted to receive support from relatives and care providers but they wanted to make the decision to quit on their own. ConclusionFor successful smoking cessation, it is important to understand the difficulties smokers are experiencing that influence their efforts to quit smoking. To achieve a successful lasting smoking cessation it might be more effective to first ensure that the smoker has the right internal motivation to make the decision to quit, then assist with smoking cessation.

    Critical care nurses' experiences of nursing mothers in ICU after complicated childbirth2013In: Nursing in Critical Care, ISSN 1362-1017, E-ISSN 1478-5153, Vol. 18, no 5, p. 251-257Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Providing nursing care for a critically ill obstetric patient or a patient who has just become a mother after a complicated birth can be a challenging experience for critical care nurses (CCNs). These patients have special needs because of the significant alterations in their physiology and anatomy together with the need to consider such specifics as breastfeeding and mother-child bonding. Aim: The aim with this study was to describe CCNs' experience of nursing the new mother and her family after a complicated childbirth. Method: The design of the study was qualitative. Data collection was carried out through focus group discussions with 13 CCNs in three focus groups during spring 2012. The data were subjected to qualitative content analysis. Findings: The analysis resulted in the formulation of four categories: the mother and her vital functions are prioritized; not being responsible for the child and the father; an environment unsuited to the new family and collaboration with staff in neonatal and maternity delivery wards. Conclusion and relevance to clinical practice: When nursing a mother after a complicated birth the CCNs give her and her vital signs high priority. The fathers of the children or partners of the mothers are expected to take on the responsibility of caring for the newborn child and of being the link with the neonatal ward. It is suggested that education about the needs of new families for nursing care would improve the situation and have clinical implications. Whether the intensive care unit is always the best place in which to provide care for mothers and new families is debatable. © 2013 British Association of Critical Care Nurses.

    Healthcare personnel's experiences using video consultation in primary healthcare in rural areas2017In: Primary Health Care Research and Development, ISSN 1463-4236, E-ISSN 1477-1128, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 73-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Patients living in rural areas often need to travel long distances for access to specialist care. To increase access to specialist care, video consultation between patients in primary healthcare and specialist care has been used. In order for this new method to be developed and used to the fullest, it is important to understand healthcare personnel’s experiences with this intervention.

    Objective:

    The aim of this study was to describe healthcare personnel’s experiences using video consultation in their work in primary healthcare.

    Method:

    A mixed methods design was used, and the data were analysed using qualitative and quantitative analysis methods. Interviews were conducted with eight general practitioners and one district nurse, all of whom had conducted a video consultation with a patient and a specialist physician or a cardiac specialist nurse. After each video consultation, the participants completed a consultation report/questionnaire.

    Results:

    Healthcare personnel considered video consultation to provide quicker access to specialist care for the patient, and greater security when the video consultation encounter was conducted at their own primary healthcare centre. They considered video consultation an opportunity to provide education and for the patients to ask questions.

    Concliusion:

    Video consultation is a satisfactory tool for healthcare personnel, and the technology is a new, useful method, especially for the district nurses. Further, video consultation is an opportunity for healthcare personnel to learn. However, for it to work as an accepted method, the technology must function well and be user friendly. It must also be clear that it is beneficial for the patients and the healthcare personnel.

    Patients’ experiences with specialist care via video consultation in primary healthcare in rural areas2014In: International Journal of Telemedicine and Applications, ISSN 1687-6415, E-ISSN 1687-6423, Vol. 2014, article id 143824Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. Video consultation (VC) can improve access to specialist care, especially for individuals who live in rural areas that are long distances from specialist clinics. Aim. The aim of this study was to describe patients’ experiences with specialist care via VC encounters. Method. Interviews were conducted with 26 patients who had participated in a VC encounter. The data were analysed using thematic content analysis. Result. The analysis resulted in two themes. The theme “confident with the technology” was constructed from the categories “possibilities and obstacles in using VC encounters” and “advantages and disadvantages of the technology.” The theme “personal satisfaction with the VC encounters” was constructed from the categories “support from the healthcare personnel,” “perceived security,” and “satisfaction with the specialist consultation.” Conclusion. The patients who did not think that the VC was the best care still considered that the visit was adequate because they did not have to travel. An important finding was that the patients’ perceived even short distances to specialty care as expensive journeys because many patients had low incomes. Among the patients who had more than one VC, the second encounter was perceived as safer. Additionally, good communication was essential for the patient’s perception of security during the VC encounter.

    The views of health care personnel about video consultation prior to implementation in primary health care in rural areas2014In: Primary Health Care Research and Development, ISSN 1463-4236, E-ISSN 1477-1128, Vol. 15, no 2, p. 170-179Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim The aim of this study was to describe the views of health-care personnel about video consultation (VC) prior to implementation in primary health care in rural areas. BACKGROUND: For people living in rural areas, it is often a long distance to specialist care, and VC could be an opportunity for increased access to care. Therefore, this study was to investigate what views primary health-care personnel had on VC as a working method in the distance between primary and specialist care. The development of technology in society and the introduction of technology in health care mean that the working methods must be adapted to a new approach. It is therefore important that in the initial phase of the introduction of new working methods to capture the personnel views regarding this. METHODS: Focus group (FG) discussions with health-care personnel from five primary health-care centres in northern Sweden. The transcribed FG discussions were analysed with qualitative content analysis. Findings The analysis revealed four main categories: a patient-centred VC; the importance of evaluating costs and resources; new technology in daily work; technology gives new possibilities in future health care.

    Views of residents of rural areas on accessibility to specialist care through videoconference2014In: Technology and Health Care, ISSN 0928-7329, E-ISSN 1878-7401, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 147-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Accessibility to specialized health care is important for residents in rural areas. Videoconsultation can provide increased accessibility to health care. Before implementation of new technologies, it is important to study residents' views. OBJECTIVE: This study describes views of residents of rural areas on accessibility to specialist care and the use of videoconsultation as tool to increase accessibility. METHOD: A questionnaire was distributed via the primary health care centres in rural areas of northern Sweden. Data was analysed with both quantitative and qualitative methods. RESULTS: The quantitative analysis revealed three main areas: savings in time, environmental damage and cost of not having to travel were important; security of information must be coupled with increased availability of specialist care; responses depended on an individual's specific health care needs. The open-ended answers resulted into two categories: 1) experiences related to availability of specialist care and 2) views on participating in VC. CONCLUSION: Despite the fact that rural residents considered the distance as important factor in access to care, there was uncertainty regarding videoconsultation as solution. Although respondents were familiar with different types of communication technologies, they probably hesitated because they did not have information on what videoconsultation would mean to them.

    Resultat Efter analys framkom fyra kategorier: att ha begränsad tid för vård av mor och barn; att inte längre vara värderad som expert; en önskan om att ha ansvaret för helheten kring barnafödandet; att se framtida möjligheter i utveckling av professionen. Det identifierade temat är: att vara före i tiden med idéer om vård men fortfarande delvis kvar i det förflutna. Slutsats: Resultatet kan förstås mot bakgrund av begreppet transition och teorier om organisationsförändringar. Barnmorskorna upplevde sorg och förlust av sin tidigare barnmorske funktion. Men ville för framtiden utveckla och utvidga sin professionella roll. En lyckad transition kräver stöd, delaktighet och skickligt ledarskap.

    Postpartum care in transition: parents' and midwives' expectations and experience of postpartum care including the use of videoconferencing2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aims are to explore pregnant women's expectations of postpartum care, midwives experience of organizational and professional change and parents' and midwives' experiences of postpartum care using VC. During the 1980s early discharge was introduced to facilitate a more family-oriented postpartum care. At present new parents are discharged from the maternity ward about 48 hours after childbirth. Studies of new parents' needs in the postpartum period show that continuity of care, practical, informational and emotional support are important issues. The midwife's role in postpartum care is evaluated as having a significant importance for new parents through being available, competent and supportive both emotionally and practically. Structural change with the introduction of early discharge and the centralisation of specialties to a few hospitals has affected the parents' situation as well as the midwife's ability to practise care for the new mother, child and family. Sweden's most northern county council has been progressive in its development of ICT and associated ideas concerning its application to healthcare. An intervention was carried out using videoconferencing (VC) equipment between a maternity ward and parents' homes. Data were collected by questionnaires completed by pregnant women (I), parents (III) and midwives (IV), focus-groups' discussions with midwives (II) and interviews with parents and midwives. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics (I, II, IV), thematic content analysis (II, III) and qualitative content analysis (IV). Accessibility to healthcare staff predominated in pregnant women's evaluating of important issues in the postpartum period and when parents used videoconferencing. Distance to healthcare services was not found to be a determining factor when pregnant women wanted to be discharged. One advantage of using VC was that it was felt it saved time and money for the parents. Support during breastfeeding, information about the child's behaviour and condition, were important aspects that needed to be covered in the postpartum period. Midwives felt their work had become more a fragmentised due to the short hospital stay. Parents and midwives found meeting via VC to be almost like a real-life encounter. They had no problem handling the VC equipment and did not have any problem preserving their integrity. Before introducing e-health in postpartum care, midwives stressed the importance of investigating consequences regarding organisation and work assignments. From this thesis it can be understood that VC can function as a bridge to facilitate a caring encounter between the parents and the midwives in the postpartum period. Further research into postpartum care is needed from the perspective of the parents and the midwives as well as into the consequences of implementing e-health

    Midwives' experience of organisational and professional change2005In: Midwifery, ISSN 0266-6138, E-ISSN 1532-3099, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 355-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: to describe midwives' experiences of changes in their caring role and professional function in postpartum wards in the northern part of Sweden. In this part of the country, three out of eight maternity departments have been closed over the last 5 years. During the same period, hospital stays have reduced in length, and an early discharge model has been introduced. DESIGN: focus-group discussions. SETTING: four focus groups at two hospitals in northern Sweden. PARTICIPANTS: 21 midwives experienced in midwifery practice in maternity wards. FINDINGS: the analysis revealed four categories of comments: 'to have limited time when caring for the mother and the baby'; 'no longer being valued as the expert'; 'a wish to have responsibility for childbirth in its entirety'; 'to see future possibilities in the development of the profession'. The theme identified is 'being ahead in ideas about caring but still partly caught up in the past'. KEY CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: the identified theme of being ahead in ideas about caring but still partly caught up in the past can be understood as representing a transition. The midwives experienced loss and grief over their former midwifery practice, but had ideas and visions for developing and expanding their future professional role. A healthy transition requires support, participation and skilled management.

    Parents' experiences of using videoconferencing as a support in early discharge after childbirth2009In: Midwifery, ISSN 0266-6138, E-ISSN 1532-3099, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 357-365Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: to describe parents' experiences of using videoconferencing (VC) when discharged early from a maternity unit. Design: a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was used to describe parents' experiences. Data were collected via questionnaires and interviews. Setting: a pilot study involving a maternity department and new parents in their homes was conducted. Through VC, parents discharged early were able to maintain follow-up contact with the midwife via sound and picture at the department. Participants: nine couples/new parents participated. Findings: the analysis revealed four categories of responses: 'feeling confident with the technology'; 'feeling confident of having control of their privacy'; 'feeling confident being face-to-face on the VC'; and 'feeling confident when worries and concerns were met and answers were received'. Key conclusions: using VC as a support in cases of early discharge after childbirth can facilitate a meeting that makes it possible for new parents to be guided by the midwife in their transition into parenthood. Implications for practice: the findings of this study indicate that VC equipment may be helpful for parents discharged from hospital early after childbirth. The findings can also be used as a foundation for further development of the application of VC within maternal health care and in health care in rural areas.

    A qualitative study of new fathers experiences of care in relation to complicated childbirth2013In: Sexual & Reproductive HealthCare, ISSN 1877-5756, E-ISSN 1877-5764, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 147-152Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ObjectivesThe objective of the study was to describe new fathers’ experiences with care related to complicated childbirth.MethodsA qualitative approach consisting of individual interviews using a semi-structured interview guide with open-ended questions was applied. A purposive sample of eight fathers participated. The interview text was subjected to qualitative thematic content analysis.ResultsAnalysis revealed the following three categories: 1) feeling scared and uncared for during acute situations; 2) appreciating the opportunity to participate in care and becoming a family; and 3) needing continued care. Based on these three categories, a recurring theme was identified: struggling to be recognized by care staff as a partner in the family was revealed.ConclusionAlthough fathers lack support and understanding from care staff, they strive to fulfill their roles as fathers by guarding their families and keeping them together. Caregivers involved in the childbirth process should realize that by acknowledging and encouraging fathers in these roles, they in turn support the entire family unit. Interventions developed for fathers and family care requires further development. Additional research concerning how midwives and critical care nurses (CCNs) view the presence of fathers in the emergency situations that may accompany childbirth is also needed.

    Patients’ and Healthcare Personnel’s Experiences of Health Coaching with Online Self-Management in the Renewing Health Project2017In: International Journal of Telemedicine and Applications, ISSN 1687-6415, E-ISSN 1687-6423, Vol. 2017, article id 9306192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Telehealth applications have shown positive effects for people with chronic conditions and their awareness of health. Objective. To describe patients’ and healthcare personnel’s experiences of using health coaching with online self-management in primary health care. Method. A pragmatic randomised controlled trial was conducted. Patients in the intervention group measured and reported medical parameters such as blood pressure, blood glucose, prothrombin complex (PK) values, and 2-channel ECG. Data were collected through a questionnaire, individual interviews with patients, and focus group discussions with healthcare personnel. The questionnaire was analysed using statistics; texts from interviews and focus groups were analysed using content analysis. Findings. Patients were satisfied and believed that the intervention had enhanced their care and increased accessibility without causing concerns about privacy. Although being positive, patients commented the lack of support and feedback from healthcare personnel. Healthcare personnel regarded the intervention valuable for the patients’ abilities to perform self-management healthcare tasks but preferred that patients did so without them supporting the patients. Conclusion. Patients expressed satisfaction and acceptance regarding the use of the application. It seems that healthcare personnel are convinced about the benefits for patients and the potential for the intervention but are not convinced about its benefits for healthcare organisations.

    Midwives' experiences of sphincter tears2013In: British journal of midwifery, ISSN 0969-4900, E-ISSN 2052-4307, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 7-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Perineal tears are very difficult to prevent, thus one of the midwife's responsibilities during childbirth is to minimise trauma to the perineum. This study examines the experiences of eight midwives who attended births that resulted in a sphincter rupture. Midwives from two maternity clinics in northern Sweden were interviewed using semi-structured questionnaires. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis and four themes were identified: feeling guilt, shame and failure; working through feelings; needing support from colleagues, and feeling confident with their skills. The category 'striving to be good at her job' was found to be common to all four themes. A midwife may feel guilty and unprofessional when he/she is singled out and criticised. Therefore, in order to reduce these feelings and to further develop professional skills, midwives should be offered mentoring throughout their career

    Telemonitoring and Health Counseling for Self-Management Support of Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial2017In: JMIR Diabetes, E-ISSN 2371-4379, Vol. 2, no 1, article id e10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The prevalence of diabetes is increasing among adults globally, and there is a need for new models of health care delivery. Research has shown that self-management approaches encourage persons with chronic conditions to take a primary role in managing their daily care. Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate whether the introduction of a health technology-supported self-management program involving telemonitoring and health counseling had beneficial effects on glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), other clinical variables (height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure, blood lipid profile), and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), as measured using the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) version 2 in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods: This was a pragmatic randomized controlled trial of patients with type 2 diabetes. Both the control and intervention groups received usual care. The intervention group also participated in additional health promotion activities with the use of the Prescribed Healthcare Web application for self-monitoring of blood glucose and blood pressure. About every second month or when needed, the general practitioner or the diabetes nurse reviewed the results and the health care activity plan. Results: A total of 166 patients with type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to the intervention (n=87) or control (n=79) groups. From the baseline to follow-up, 36 patients in the intervention group and 5 patients in the control group were lost to follow-up, and 2 patients died. Additionally, HbA1c was not available at baseline in one patient in the intervention group. A total of 122 patients were included in the final analysis after 19 months. There were no significant differences between the groups in the primary outcome HbA1c level (P=.33), and in the secondary outcome HRQoL as measured using SF-36. A total of 80% (67/87) of the patients in the intervention group at the baseline, and 98% (47/50) of the responders after 19-month intervention were familiar with using a personal computer (P=.001). After 19 months, nonresponders (ie, data from baseline) reported significantly poorer mental health in social functioning and role emotional subscales on the SF-36 (P=.03, and P=.01, respectively). Conclusions: The primary outcome HbA1c level and the secondary outcome HRQoL did not differ between groups after the 19-month follow-up. Those lost to follow-up reported significantly poorer mental health than did the responders in the intervention group.

    Midwives' experience of using videoconferencing as support in early discharge after childbirth2007In: Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, ISSN 1357-633X, E-ISSN 1758-1109, Vol. 13, no 4, p. 202-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Videoconferencing was used to support parents who were discharged early after childbirth. In a one-year pilot study, 23 videoconferences took place between midwives and parents at home. To ensure good picture quality, a high-speed, 10 Mbit/s broadband connection was used. We used a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods to describe the participants' experience. Seven midwives with experience of supporting nine couples/new parents completed a questionnaire. The 20 responses (87%) showed that the main reason for contact was routine and the most frequent advice concerned breastfeeding. The quality of sound and picture were judged to be good and very good, respectively. The experience of communicating with the parents via videoconferencing was also investigated through semi-structured interviews. Analysis of the interviews revealed that videoconferencing was: easy to handle and useful for making assessments; a valuable and functional complement to usual practice; almost like a real-life encounter. The results suggest that videoconferencing may be a useful tool in postpartum care.

    “A worse nightmare than expected”: a Swedish qualitative study of women's experiences two months after obstetric anal sphincter muscle injury2018In: Midwifery, ISSN 0266-6138, E-ISSN 1532-3099, Vol. 61, p. 22-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective

    This study explores women's experiences of the first two months after obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS) during childbirth with a focus on problematic recovery.

    Methods

    This qualitative study used inductive qualitative content analysis to investigate open-ended responses from 1248 women. The data consists of short and comprehensive written responses to open-ended questions focusing on recovery in the national quality register, the Perineal Laceration Register, two months after OASIS at childbirth.

    Results

    The theme “A worse nightmare than expected” illustrated women's experiences of their life situation. Pain was a constant reminder of the trauma, and the women had to face physical and psychological limitations as well as crushed expectations of family life. Furthermore, navigating healthcare services for help added further stress to an already stressful situation.

    Conclusions

    We found that women with problematic recovery two months after OASIS experienced their situation as a worse nightmare than expected. Extensive pain resulted in physical and psychological limitations, and crushed expectations of family life. Improved patient information for women with OASIS regarding pain, psychological and personal aspects, sexual function, and subsequent pregnancy delivery is needed. Also, there is a need for clear organizational structures and information to guide help-seeking women to needed care.

    Going from “paper and pen” to ICT systems: Perspectives on managing the change process2017In: Informatics for Health and Social Care, ISSN 1753-8157, E-ISSN 1753-8165, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 109-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Lack of participation from staff when developing information and communication technologies (ICT) has been shown to lead to negative consequences and might be one explanation for failure. Management during development processes has rarely been empirically studied, especially when introducing ICT systems in a municipality context. Objective: To describe and interpret experiences of the management during change processes where ICT was introduced among staff and managers in elderly care. Design: A qualitative interpretive method was chosen for this study and content analysis for analyzing the interviews. Results: “Clear focus–unclear process” demonstrated that focus on ICT solutions was clear but the process of introducing the ICT was not. “First-line managers receiving a system of support” gave a picture of the first-line manager as not playing an active part in the projects. First-line managers and staff described “Low power to influence” when realizing that for some reasons, they had not contributed in the change projects. “Low confirmation” represented the previous and present feelings of staff not being listened to. Lastly, “Reciprocal understanding” pictures how first-line managers and staff, although having some expectations on each other, understood each other’s positions. Conclusions: Empowerment could be useful in creating an organization where critical awareness and reflection over daily practice becomes a routine.

    Digital support for medication administration: a means for reaching the goal of providing good care?2014In: Journal of Health Organisation & Management, ISSN 1477-7266, E-ISSN 1758-7247, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 327-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - To describe staffs’ perceptions of digital support for medication administration (DSM) and out of the perceptions interpret underlying values. Design/methodology/approach - Twenty-two persons working in elder-care participated in the study. The study had a qualitative approach and focus-group interviews were used to collect data. To analyze the manifest content a phenomenographic method was used. An interpretation of perceptions was then undertaken aimed at identifying underlying values. Findings - Three descriptive categories, "Utility", "Impact on working environment" and "Economic impact" were the result of the manifest analysis. The values of having a "Good working environment", "Benefits" and "Good economy" were interpreted as guidance for staffs’ acceptance or rejection of the DSM.Originality/value - This study had a twofold approach with the intention of going beyond descriptions. To gain a deeper understanding a normative interpretation was completed. Ethical conflicts are frequently characterized as conflicts between at least two values. In this study staffs expressed fear of losing prerequisites needed to perform their work well. Prerequisites that were identified as values and these values were threatened by the DSM

Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and then analysed using qualitative content analysis.Findingsfour categories were identified: to consider and accept the decision; to lack understanding about the abortion procedure; to be in need of support and information; to have memories for life. Findings show that information and support during the whole abortion process is important. Women found it difficult to make the decision and going through abortion left memories for life.Conclusioninformation and support is of great importance for women in this vulnerable situation. The need for further support points out the need to have follow-up contacts with women after an induced second trimester abortion.

    Experiences and Views of the Discharge Planning Process Among Swedish District Nurses and Home Care Organizers: A Qualitative Study2015In: Home Health Care Management & Practice, ISSN 1084-8223, E-ISSN 1552-6739, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 108-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Discharge planning is an important care process, but deficits in planning are common. The aim of this study was to explore district nurses’ (DNs) and home care organizers’ (HCOs) experiences and views of the workflow during the discharge planning process (DPP). Demands, workload, time, collaboration, and engagement, together with knowledge and professional confidence, are factors that influence workflow and outcome of the DPP for DNs and HCOs. Strengths and obstacles at the organization, group, and individual levels affect the workflow during the discharge planning. Knowledge of these strengths and obstacles should help care providers in their practice as well as help management and politicians become more aware of prerequisites needed to achieve a safe and efficient workflow for securing the patient’s discharge.

    Process evaluation of discharge planning implementation in healthcare using normalization process theory2016In: BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, ISSN 1472-6947, E-ISSN 1472-6947, Vol. 16, no 1, article id 48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BackgroundDischarge planning is a care process that aims to secure the transfer of care for the patient at transition from home to the hospital and back home. Information exchange and collaboration between care providers are essential, but deficits are common. A wide range of initiatives to improve the discharge planning process have been developed and implemented for the past three decades. However, there are still high rates of reported medical errors and adverse events related to failures in the discharge planning. Using theoretical frameworks such as Normalization Process Theory (NPT) can support evaluations of complex interventions and processes in healthcare. The aim of this study was to explore the embedding and integration of the DPP from the perspective of registered nurses, district nurses and homecare organizers.MethodsThe study design was explorative, using the NPT as a framework to explore the embedding and integration of the DPP. Data consisted of written documentation from; workshops with staff, registered adverse events and system failures, web based survey and individual interviews with staff.ResultsUsing the NPT as a framework to explore the embedding and integration of discharge planning after 10 years in use showed that the staff had reached a consensus of opinion of what the process was (coherence) and how they evaluated the process (reflexive monitoring). However, they had not reached a consensus of opinion of who performed the process (cognitive participation) and how it was performed (collective action). This could be interpreted as the process had not become normalized in daily practice.ConclusionThe result shows necessity to observe the implementation of old practices to better understand the needs of new ones before developing and implementing new practices or supportive tools within healthcare to reach the aim of development and to accomplish sustainable implementation. The NPT offers a generalizable framework for analysis, which can explain and shape the implementation process of old practices, before further development of new practices or supportive tools.

    Midwives' experience of encountering women with posttraumatic stress symptoms after childbirth2010In: Sexual & Reproductive HealthCare, ISSN 1877-5756, E-ISSN 1877-5764, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 55-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ObjectiveTo describe midwives' experience of encountering women with posttraumatic stress symptoms after childbirth.Study designSemi-structured interviews with eight midwives with experiences of encountering women with posttraumatic stress symptoms after childbirth. Data were analyzed using thematic content analysis.ResultThe midwives encountered women with severe experiences after a childbirth, which had affected their lives. The midwives thought that they had to reflect on their own attitude and use their gentleness as they responded to the women's stories. By listening to and enabling the women to express their feelings and tell their stories, the midwives thought that they could confirm the women's experience. The midwives thought that they could support women who had lost confidence to give birth but also thought that cesarean section did not solve the women's problems.ConclusionTraining of midwives is necessary to increase awareness of the cause of women's posttraumatic stress symptoms. It is urgent to optimize the implementation of new research into practical reality to raise the quality of care of women with fear of childbirth. Childbirth is an important experience that can influence a woman's well-being and her connection to the child. Posttraumatic stress symptoms should be identified in an early stage/pregnancy to allow early treatment on the right level of care.

    Projekt: Tidighemgång efter barns födelse med stöd av IT-teknik2010Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektets övergripande syfte  Det övergripande syftet med projektet var är att undersöka huruvida IT-teknik kan vara ett komplement/alternativ för nyblivna föräldrar för att uppleva trygghet och säkerhet vid tidighemgång från en BB-avdelning.   Kort beskrivning av projektet  Vården efter förlossning, såväl den medicinska som omvårdnaden av mor och det nyfödda barnet har genomgått stora strukturella förändringar. Under 1980-1990-talet sjönk medelvårdtiden efter införandet av ”tidighemgång” från 5-7 dagar till 2-3 dygns vistelse för att idag på vissa ställen vara enbart 6 timmar. Idag är vårdformen ”tidighemgång” i stort sett etablerad över hela landet med stora variationer. Genom centralisering av förlossningsavdelningar till större sjukhus har allt fler människor fått längre avstånd till kvalificerad vård. Syftet med del studie 1 var att beskriva förväntningar på postpartum vården, bland gravida kvinnor boende i norra Sverige. Syftet var även att studera om personligheten vara avgörande för valet av vårdform. Syftet med delstudie 2 var att beskriva barnmorskors erfarenheter av förändringar i deras vårdande roll samt yrkesfunktion på BB-avdelningar i norra Sverige. Vid en intervention med informations och kommunikationsteknik (IKT) var syftet i delstudie 3 att undersöka nyblivna föräldrars upplevelse av trygghet och säkerhet vid användning av IKT och i delstudie 4 att undersöka barnmorskors upplevelse av trygghet och säkerhet vid användning av IKT.
