    Using information and communication technology in home care for communication between patients, family members, and healthcare professionals: A systematic review2013In: International Journal of Telemedicine and Applications, ISSN 1687-6415, E-ISSN 1687-6423Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Aktivitet: Kan information och kommunikationsteknik stödja kontakten mellan distriktssköterskan och personer med svår kronisk sjukdom i hemmet?2007Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund Utvecklingen av behandlingsmetoder har medfört att vårdtiden på sjukhus har minskat. Detta innebär att fler sjuka skrivs ut tidigare, men ofta i sämre tillstånd som medför ett ökat behov av omvårdnad i hemmet. Tillgång till stöd är en viktig aspekt för personer med kronisk sjukdom för att minska oro och istället öka känslan av trygghet. Tillgänglighet av vård är en betydelsefull kvalitetsfaktor som ofta lyfts fram i vården idag. En stor del av distriktssköterskans arbete idag är att stödja personer och deras närstående så att det är möjligt för den sjuke att bo kvar i sitt hem. Tidigare studier har visat att vårdgivare och patienter varit positiva till att använda information och kommunikationsteknik (IKT). Genom att utveckla lämpliga metoder och tjänster i användningen av IKT i omvårdnaden, kan detta stödja och underlätta kommunikationen mellan personer med svår kronisk sjukdom som bor hemma och omvårdnadsansvarig distriktssköterska. Syfte Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur personer med svår kronisk sjukdom i hemmet och deras omvårdnadsansvariga distriktssköterskor upplevde att använda den teknik som testades. MetodEn kvalitativ fallstudie design har använts där fallet bestod av två personer med svår kronisk sjukdom som bodde hemma och deras respektive omvårdnadsansvariga distriktssköterska. Inledningsvis utfördes intervjuer (baseline) med deltagarna. En intervention utfördes där en programvara via Internet samt mobiltelefoner med tillgång till Internet testades, där den sjuke och dennes distriktssköterska kunde kontakta varandra när behov uppstod

    Information and communication technology as a tool for support in home care: Experiences of middle-aged people with serious chronic illness and district nurses2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was to elucidate experienced needs of people with serious chronic illness living at home and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) as a tool for support from district nurses (DNs).The doctoral thesis included five Papers; a systematic literature review, which comprised both qualitative and quantitative studies, and four Papers with qualitative approach. The literature review (I) provides an overview of studies describing the use of ICT in home care, and included 130 studies. These studies were examined for a quality appraisal, and were then extracted and placed in a matrix of different areas. Paper II elucidates meanings of needs of middle-aged people living with serious chronic illness living at home. Twelve people with serious chronic illness living at home were interviewed. The interviews were analysed with a phenomenological hermeneutic interpretation. Paper IV describes DNs attitudes regarding the implementation of ICT in home care. Data were collected by using focus group discussions with 19 DNs, analysed with content analyses. An intervention study with a qualitative case study design was performed (III, V). Semi-structured interviews were performed, with two people with serious chronic illness living at home and their respective DN, for describing their experiences of using an ICT application for communicating with each other. Data were then analysed with thematic content analysis.Findings in the literature review (Paper I) show that the last ten years published studies of using ICT in care at home have rapidly increased. About a half of the studies included in the literature review were published between 2007 and 2009. The most of the studies were performed in North America and about one third in Europe. Many different terms for the technology were used; telehealth was the most common. Studies of supporting people with chronic illness were common. Heart and lung diseases were the most common diagnoses. Videophones or video conferencing was the most commonly used technology, with focus of communication between nurses and patients.Findings in Paper II show that needs of people with serious chronic illness living at home can be understood as maintaining control in everyday life provides meaningfulness in life. This means striving for independence through care and support in their surroundings. It seemed also important for participants to choose how their lives would be and be together with others who listened and understood them for who they are.Findings in Paper IV show the importance that DNs could influence the design and be a part of the introduction of ICT applications implementation in home care. DNs viewed that the use of ICT in home care could improve accessibility both for themselves and for the ill people at home. DNs thought they could gain better access to information about ill people living at home, and that it could save time, but also take time. They also discussed that the ICT application encroached the autonomy of the ill people and their relatives’ living at home. Furthermore, they discussed using ICT in home care was not suitable for everyone, and that people cannot be replaced by ICT.Findings in the intervention study (Paper III, V) describe that using the ICT application improved accessibility to care at home. It also saved time and eased DNs’ work. The messaging program provided a more direct communication between the ill people and the DNs, which facilitated the communication, and led to less limitations of everyday life for the ill people living at home, which seemed mediating a more trusting relationship.Keywords: information and communication technology, chronic illness, home, experiences, qualitative research.

    Using information and communication technology to support people with serious chronic illness living at home2007Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this licentiate thesis was to describe the experiences of people with serious chronic illness and the points of view and experiences of district nurses concerning the use of information and communication technology in nursing care at home. The study has a qualitative approach. Data were collected by using focus group discussions with 19 district nurses describing their points of view about using information and communication technology in nursing care at home (I). An intervention study with a case study design were performed (II, III) using semi-structured interviews with two people with serious chronic illness living at home and their respective district nurses before, during and after the use of the ICT application. The data were analysed using a thematic content analysis. The findings show the importance of district nurses having the opportunity to influence the design and participate in the introduction to the use of information and communication technology. District nurses saw that the use of this technology in nursing care at home could improve the accessibility of the district nurse for the ill person at home. They saw a possibility for themselves to gain better access to information about ill people living at home, and that its use could both save time, but also take time. The findings revealed that the equipment could be regarded as an encroachment and that the autonomy of the people and their relatives at home could be threatened. Furthermore it appeared that the use of information and communication technology in nursing care at home was not suitable for everyone, and that people cannot be replaced by information and communication technology. The findings in the intervention study indicate that it was difficult to reach the district nurse, and the use of information and communication technology improved accessibility. The messaging program provided a more direct communication between the ill people and their district nurses and facilitated communication with the district nurse, which led to fewer limitations in everyday life for people with serious chronic illness living at home. A feeling of uncertainty was salient in the use of the technology for the participants. The technology was seen as a complement to nursing care at home but not a replacement for traditional home visits. The study indicates that the use of information and communication technology offers a possibility of improving nursing care at home for people with serious chronic illness with increased accessibility, safety and security. It also seemed to mediate a more trusting relationship between the ill person and their district nurse.

    Meanings of balance for people with long-term illnesses2016In: British Journal of Community Nursing, ISSN 1462-4753, E-ISSN 2052-2215, Vol. 21, no 11, p. 563-567Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Swedish district nurses' attitudes to implement information and communication technology in home nursing2008In: Open Nursing Journal, ISSN 1874-4346, E-ISSN 1874-4346, Vol. 2, p. 68-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of information and communication technology has increased in the society, and can be useful in nursing care. The aim of this study was to describe district nurses' attitudes regarding the implementation of information and communication technology in home nursing. The first and third authors performed five focus group discussions with 19 district nurses' from five primary healthcare centres in northern Sweden. During the focus group discussions, the following topics were discussed: the current and future use of information and communication technology in home nursing; expectations, advantages, disadvantages and hindrances in the use of information and communication technology in home nursing; and the use of information and communication technology from an ethical perspective. The transcribed focus group discussions were analysed using qualitative content analysis. The results showed that district nurses' attitudes were positive regarding the use of information and communication technology in their work. They also asked for possibilities to influence the design and its introduction. However, the use of information and communication technology in home nursing can be described as a complement to communication that could not replace human physical encounters. Improvements and risks, as well as the importance of physical presence in home nursing were considered vital. The results revealed that the use of information and communication technology requires changes in the district nurses' work situation.

    Swedish district nurses' experiences on the use of information and communication technology for supporting people with serious chronic illness living at home: a case study2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 259-265Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this case study was to describe two District Nurses' (DN) experiences of using information and communication technology (ICT) to communicate with chronically ill people in their homes. An electronic messaging program via computers and mobile phones with an Internet connection was used, enabling DNs and the ill people to exchange messages to and from anywhere. The program comprised different virtual rooms, and communication was via text messages. The DNs in this study used the program two to four times each week from November 2003 to March 2004. Semi-structured interviews were performed before, during and after the implementation of the new technology and were analysed using thematic content analysis. The results showed that the DNs felt that the technology increased accessibility to nursing care through a more direct communication with the ill person meaning that a more trusting relationship could be created. The DNs also experienced that the use of ICT saved working time. This study indicates that the use of ICT for communication allowed the DN to better support a chronically ill person at home leading to improved home nursing care. This method of communication cannot replace physical presence, but can be seen as a complement to nursing care at home.

    We studied the experiences of two people with serious chronic illness who used information and communication technology (ICT) to communicate with their district nurse. The study was a qualitative case study. The intervention was performed using an electronic messaging program. The program was accessible to any computer with an Internet connection. The programme consisted of different virtual rooms, where people could communicate using text messages. The participants used the program 2-4 times each week from the beginning of November 2003 to February 2004. Semistructured interviews were performed before, during and after the intervention and were analysed using thematic content analysis. The results showed that the participants' communication with the district nurse was improved because of easy accessibility and that they felt increased security. They also felt there were fewer limitations and that their everyday life was improved, which can also be seen as an improvement in care

    Meanings of feeling well among women with Parkinson's disease2015In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 10, article id 28730Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We conducted a qualitative inquiry to describe the meanings of feeling well as experienced by women with Parkinson's disease. Nine women were interviewed and we analysed the interviews using a reflective lifeworld approach based on phenomenological epistemology. We present the analysis as five constituents: the body as unnoticed; being able to move on; feeling joy by being connected; finding peace and harmony; and being the director of one's own life. Our findings can be used to understand and promote well-being among women with Parkinson's disease. In care meetings, knowledge about the lived and experienced health processes supports the women's striving to not let illness dominate their experience of daily life.

    Experiences of nursing patients suffering from trauma: preparing for the unexpected: a qualitative study2016In: Intensive & Critical Care Nursing, ISSN 0964-3397, E-ISSN 1532-4036, Vol. 36, p. 58-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    SummarySettings and objectivesA midsize hospital in the north of Sweden with a high-tech intensive care unit and space for up to 10 patients, with an attached postoperative ward for up to 15 patients. The wards are manned by critical care nurses who are also responsible for carrying a trauma pager. When the alarm goes off, the critical care nurse leaves her/his duties and joins a trauma team. The aim of the study was to describe critical care nurse's experiences of nursing patients suffering from trauma.MethodA qualitative descriptive design was used. Data were collected through four focus group discussions with 15 critical care nurses analysed using qualitative content analysis.FindingsOne theme: Preparing for the unexpected with four subthemes: (1) Feeling competent, but sometimes inadequate; (2) Feeling unsatisfied with the care environment; (3) Feeling satisfied with well-functioning communication; and (4) Feeling a need to reflect when affected.ConclusionsNursing trauma patients require critical care nurses to be prepared for the unexpected. Two aspects of trauma care must be improved in order to fully address the challenges it poses: First, formal preparation and adequate resources must be invested to ensure delivery of quality trauma care. Secondly, follow-ups are needed to evaluate care measures and to give members of the trauma team the opportunity to address feelings of distress or concern.

    The helicopter as a caring context: Experiences of people suffering trauma2017In: International Emergency Nursing, ISSN 1755-599X, E-ISSN 1878-013X, Vol. 32, p. 34-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    When emergency medical services (EMS) are needed, the choice of transport depends on several factors. These may include the patient’s medical condition, transport accessibility to the accident site and the receiving hospital’s resources. Emergency care research is advancing, but little is known about the patient’s perspective of helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS).

    Aim

    The aim of this study was to describe trauma patients’ experiences of HEMS.

    Method

    Thirteen persons (ages 21–76) were interviewed using an interview guide. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis.

    Findings

    The analysis resulted in three themes: Being distraught and dazed by the event – patients experienced shock and tension, as well as feelings of curiosity and excitement. Being comforted by the caregivers – as the caregivers were present and attentive, they had no need for relatives in the helicopter. Being safe in a restricted environment – the participants’ injuries were taken seriously and the caregivers displayed effective teamwork.

    Conclusion

    For trauma patients to be taken seriously and treated as ‘worst cases’ enables them to trust their caregivers and ‘hand themselves over’ to their care. HEMS provide additional advantageous circumstances, such as being the sole patient and having proximity to a small, professional team.
