    Veteransoldatutredningen: en granskning av dess förslag till förbättring i frågan om psykisk ohälsa2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    14 juni 2007 beslutade regeringen att tillkalla en särskild utredare med uppdrag att utforma förslag till en svensk veteranpolitik, som skulle innefatta ansvaret för personalen före, under och efter internationella militära insatser. Utredningen, som tog namnet Veteransoldatutredningen, lämnade i oktober 2008 sitt slutbetänkande. Syftet med denna uppsats var att kritiskt granska utredningens förslag till förbättring i frågan om psykologisk ohälsa, stressprevention, inför insats och med utgångspunkt i litteraturen försöka förutsäga om förslaget skulle komma att ge effekt

     Metodvalen i denna uppsats har utgjorts av kvalitativ textanalys samt deskription. Tyngdpunkten i essän ligger i att definiera stressreaktioner samt åtgärder för stressprevention. Därefter följer analysen för att kunna se om det finns en förankring i aktuell forskning, och mot slutet granskas om förslagen kommer att ge effekt.

    I uppsatsen söktes svar på följande frågeställningar:

    -          Finns det en förankring i förslagen från Veteransoldatutredningen i aktuell forskning med inriktning på preventiva åtgärder?

    -          Är det rimligt att anta att med stöd av aktuell forskning att förslagen kan förebygga psykisk ohälsa efter internationell insats?

    De viktigaste slutsatserna som har dragits från denna studie är:

    Förslagen från veteransoldatutredningen finns till del förankrade i aktuell litteratur. De förslag som väntas kunna förebygga psykisk ohälsa efter internationell insats är som följer.

    -          En förbättrad och mer effektiv rekrytering genom större personlig kontakt medger en noggrannare rekrytering som gör att man får rätt människor, på rätt plats med godkända vitsord samt psykisk lämplighet och detta minskar i sin tur risken för stressreaktioner.

    -          Utökad och bättre information till allmänheten från den politiska ledningen och från Försvarsmakten om missioner minskar förhoppningsvis samhällets opposition genom att öka förståelsen för Försvarsmakten och dess uppgifter. Detta nedbringar i sin tur den kumulativa stress i soldatens vardag p g a externa stressorer från samhälle och media.

    -          Ytterligare utbildning i mänskliga rättigheter och krigets lagar bidrar till att skapa trygghet i vad soldater får - och inte får - göra. Genom dylik utbildning kan frustrationen, som uppstår då soldaterna inte vet hur de skall hantera specifika situationer, minskas.

    Health effects on leaders and co-workers of an art-based leadership development program2011Inngår i: Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, ISSN 0033-3190, E-ISSN 1423-0348, Vol. 80, nr 2, s. 78-87Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background:There are very few evaluations of the effectiveness of leadership development programs. The purpose of the study was to examine whether an art-based leadership program may have a more beneficial effect than a conventional one on leaders' and their corresponding subordinates' mental and biological stress. Methods: Participating leaders were randomized to 2 year-long leadership programs, 1 art-based and 1 conventional, with follow-up of the leaders and their subordinates at 12 and 18 months. The art-based program built on an experimental theatre form, a collage of literary text and music, followed by writing and discussions focused on existential and ethical problems. Results: After 18 months a pattern was clearly visible with advantage for the art-based group. In the art group (leaders and their subordinates together as well as for subordinates only) compared to the conventional group, there was a significant improvement of mental health, covert coping and performance-based self-esteem as well as significantly less winter/fall deterioration in the serum concentration of the regenerative/anabolic hormone dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate. Conclusions: Our findings indicate a more beneficial long-term health effect of the art-based intervention compared to a conventional approach. Positive results for both standardized questionnaires and biological parameters strengthened the findings. The study provides a rationale for further evaluation of the effectiveness of this alternative educational approach.

    Psychosocial aspects of helath in adolescence: The influence of gender self-concept2005Inngår i: Journal of Adolescent Health, ISSN 1054-139X, E-ISSN 1879-1972, Vol. 36, nr 6, s. 530.e21-530.e28Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The aim of this study was to describe age and gender differences in psychosocial aspects of health in adolescents. A further aim was to explore if self-rated behavior problems varied with the adolescents’ general self-concept and sense of coherence.

    Methods

    Questionnaires on self-rated psychosocial aspects of health were answered by 282 (n = 282/390) randomly selected adolescents, aged 13–22 years (M 17.9/18.0). The instruments used were “I think I am (ITIA),” “Youth Self Report (YSR),” “Sense of coherence (SOC),” and “Family APGAR.” Differences between males and females (cross-individual grouping) were analyzed using nonparametric tests. A cluster analysis was performed using a three-cluster solution to identify and describe profiles (person-centered grouping).

    Results

    Compared with males, adolescent females scored less favorably on self-esteem (ITIA) (p = .028), reported more behavior problems (YSR) (p = .000), and showed a lower sense of coherence (SOC) (p = .003). The differences were most evident in the age group 15–17 years. The three clusters significantly differed from each other regarding how high proportions of problems the adolescents of each profile reported.

    Conclusions

    Compared with male adolescents, adolescent females experienced a poorer psychosocial health in somatic, depressive, and internalizing areas. The result indicated that psychological factors had a major impact on the proportions of problems that the adolescents reported.

    The relationship between illness severity, sociodemographic factors, general self-perception and illness-specific attitude in Swedish young people with epilepsy2004Inngår i: Seizure, ISSN 1059-1311, E-ISSN 1532-2688, Vol. 13, nr 6, s. 375-382Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe the relationship between the epilepsy condition (illness severity), sociodemographic factors, general self-concept, and illness-specific attitude in adolescents with uncomplicated epilepsy. Methods: Adolescents, aged 13–22, fulfilling criteria registered in four Swedish hospitals, answered questionnaires (n=149). The instruments “I think I am” and “Sense of coherence” measured the patients’ general self-concept. The “Child Attitude Toward Illness Scale” measured illness-specific attitude. A summary score (index) calculated from seizure frequency, seizure type, and antiepileptic drug (AED) with side effects measured “Illness Severity”. Results: Illness severity was significantly related to the participants’ general self-concept, as well as to their attitude toward their condition; i.e. higher illness severity scores were correlated with lower sense of coherence (SOC), poorer self-esteem, and a more negative attitude towards the epilepsy condition. Females had more severe illness according to the Illness Severity Index, with almost 80% found in the moderate and high severity groups as compared to 63% of males in the moderate/high severity groups. Conclusions: It was concluded that the severity of the epilepsy condition was related to the adolescents’ general self-concept and illness-specific attitude, but further research is needed to understand the causality of the relationship. The brief assessment of illness severity, constructed and used in this study should be addressed and developed further.

    Epilepsy Patients' Conceptions of Epilepsy as a Phenomenon2009Inngår i: Journal of Neuroscience Nursing, ISSN 0888-0395, E-ISSN 1945-2810, Vol. 41, nr 4, s. 201-210Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addressed epilepsy patients' conceptions of epilepsy as a phenomenon and emotions related to those conceptions. Nineteen outpatients were interviewed, and data were analyzed according to the phenomenographical methodology. Patients described epilepsy in six qualitatively different ways: Epilepsy is (a) an illness related to physical disturbances, (b) a condition related to physical disturbances, (c) a mental disturbance related to lack of mental capacity, (d) a handicap related to psychological and/or social aspects, (e) an identity related to being an epileptic, and (f) a punishment. The emotions confidence, happiness, hope, and annoyance were related to epilepsy as an illness or a condition, whereas shame, fear, sorrow, and guilt were related to the other four categories. This study indicated that, to patients, the phenomenon of epilepsy is above all a psychosocial nature and in that dimension closely related to negative emotions.

    Quality of care from the elderly person's perspective: Subjective importance and perceived reality1995Inngår i: Aging, ISSN 1945-4589, E-ISSN 1945-4589, Vol. 7, nr 2, s. 140-149Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to carry out a theoretically-based survey of elderly persons' perceptions of quality of care, in terms of their evaluations of actual care conditions, as well as the subjective importance they ascribe to these. The sample consisted of 428 elderly (> or = 60 years) persons, in four different care environments: a geriatric department (N = 51); persons receiving home nursing (N = 111); nursing homes (N = 111); and service homes (N = 154) in two Swedish cities. Data were collected by way of personal interviews, structured from the questionnaire, Quality from the Patients' Perspective (QPP). The QPP is theory-based and consists of 40 items covering 17 factors. Each item was evaluated in two ways by the respondent: assessment of perceived reality, and evaluation of subjective importance (Likert scales). The results show that personal characteristics, such as age, sex, and self-rated health, had a limited effect on reports of what were regarded as highly important care characteristics, as well as on ratings of actual care conditions. Psychological well-being was strongly related to perceived reality ratings: a favorable well-being covaried with favorable ratings and vice versa. Considerable differences were noted in both types of ratings when the four types of care environments were compared. On the subjective importance scales, persons living in service homes reported lower scores, particularly on the scales designed to measure the medical-technical competence of the caregivers. On the perceived reality scales, the participants in service homes and the geriatric department scored lower.

    Quality of care from the patient's perspective: Development of a patient centered questionnaire based on a grounded theory model1994Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 8, nr 1, s. 39-48Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In a previous study (Wilde et al. 1993), we developed a model of quality of care from a patient perspective using a grounded theory approach. The aim of the present study was to derive an instrument from this model. A questionnaire, Quality from Patients' Perspective (QPP), was developed which consisted of 56 items. Each item was evaluated in two ways by the respondent; assessment of perceived reality and evaluation of subjective importance (Likert scales). A personal quality of care index was computed on the basis of the relationship between these two scores. The QPP was tested on two samples, patients with infectious diseases (n = 147, mean age: 60 years) and nursing students (n = 103, mean age: 27 years). Patient's scores were factor analysed (principal factoring with oblique rotation) and 17 factors were extracted. Subgroups of patients were compared and correlations were computed between factor scores and self-rated health and well-being. Students also responded to a short form of the QPP (41 items) and personality scales. Correlations between these sets of variables were computed. The QPP was discussed in relation to existing scales.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to develop a theoretical understanding of quality of care from a patient perspective, using a grounded theory approach. Thirty-five interviews were conducted with a sample of 20 adult hospitalized patients (mean age: 60 years) in a clinic for infectious diseases. Data were analysed according to the constant comparative method. A model was formulated according to which quality of care can be understood in the light of two conditions, the resource structure of the care organization and the patient's preferences. The resource structure of the care organization consists of person-related and physical- and administrative environmental qualities. The patient's preferences have a rational and a human aspect. Within this framework, patients' perceptions of quality of care may be considered from four dimensions: the medical-technical competence of the caregivers; the physical-technical conditions of the care organization; the degree of identity-orientation in the attitudes and actions of the caregivers and the socio-cultural atmosphere of the care organization. The model is discussed in relation to existing theories in the field.

    Patients' perceptions of quality of care, self-rated functional ability, and health one year after total knee arthroplasty: a follow-up of forty-one patients1999Inngår i: Journal of Orthopaedic Nursing, ISSN 1361-3111, E-ISSN 1873-4839, Vol. 3, nr 1, s. 11-17Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore the relationships between two care conditions of patients reveiving total knee arthroplastic surgery: firstly, patients' perceptions of the quality of care and their length of stay in hospital; secondly different indicators of health outcomes — self-rated functional ability and health. The sample consisted of 41 patients (median age 71 years) undergoing total knee arthroplastic surgery during 1995 at the Central Hospital of Karlstad, Sweden. Data were collected from the medical records and by means of telephone interviews and a postal questionnaire. Results show that functional ability (walking ability and need of walking aids) covaried with favourable patient perceptions of the quality of care. Favourable functional ability was also associated with a low need of walking aids before surgery. Self-rated health I year after surgery was not related to any of the measured care conditions or the need of walking aids before surgery.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to explore the relationship between patients’ perceptions of the quality of care and their sense of coherence. The sample consisted of 782 Swedish in-patients at a gynaecological, a medical, an orthopaedic, and a surgical department. The median age was 59 years and 55% of the patients were women. Data were collected using the Quality from the Patient’s Perspective (QPP) Questionnaire and the Sense of Coherence Questionnaire. The QPP consists of 61 items designed to measure the following four quality dimensions: the medical-technical competence and the degree of identity-orientation in the actions of the caregivers, the physical-technical conditions and the socio-cultural atmosphere of the care organization. Each question is posed in two different ways in the QPP; one measures perceived reality of the item in question and one the subjective importance the patient ascribes to it. Results showed that patients’ ratings of perceived reality covaried systematically with their sense of coherence. This was particularly the case on questions rated by experts to be more abstract and emotionally loaded. Patients’ ratings of the subjective importance of the items were weakly related to their sense of coherence. The results are discussed in terms of negative affectivity and culturally shared ideals regarding quality of care.

    Abstract [en]

    Aim This study set out to explore gender differences among medical and surgical acute care inpatients regarding their perceptions of actual care conditions as well as their evaluation of the subjective importance of various care conditions.

    Background Firstly, the literature reports inconsistent findings regarding male and female patients’ views on care. Secondly, the instruments used in most previous research are not derived from a patient perspective.

    Methods The sample consisted of 831 patients (48% were women and 52% were men) at two Swedish hospitals. Data were collected using the questionnaire ‘Quality from the Patient’s Perspective’.

    Findings Male and female patients tended to evaluate the actual care received similarly. However, women tend to assign the different care aspects higher subjective importance.

    Conclusion More research is needed to illuminate the reasons why men and women hold these different values. Until these issues are better understood, there is no valid basis on a group (gender) level to give specific practical recommendations to nursing managers.

    Womens’ opinions on intrapartal care: development of a theory-based questionnaire2010Inngår i: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 19, nr 11-12, s. 1748-1760Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim.

    To develop a patient questionnaire specific to intrapartal care, based on the theoretical foundation of the general instrument Quality from the Patient's Perspective (QPP).

    Background.

    Existing general patient questionnaires do not take intrapartal care aspects fully into account, and available intrapartal-specific patient questionnaires tend to have a weak theoretical foundation.

    Design.

    A cross-sectional, nationwide study carried out during a two-week period in 2007 at Swedish maternity units.

    Method.

    An intrapartal-specific QPP-questionnaire (QPP-I) was developed by combining a selection of 22 items from the short and long versions of the QPP with 10 newly constructed items. Responses were obtained from 739 women (63% response rate). The dimensionality of the QPP-I was assessed using structural equation modelling (a nested factor model). Non-parametric statistics were used for subgroup comparisons.

    Results.

    A nested model with a general factor including all 32 items and 10 subordinate factors was developed. Most scales had acceptable reliability coefficients (0 center dot 73-0 center dot 93), and a meaningful pattern of subgroup differences was obtained.

    Conclusions.

    The QPP-I is theory based and has its roots in a patient perspective. It was developed using a nationwide sample of Swedish women receiving intrapartal care, and an advanced statistical method was used. The outcome of this initial empirical trial was promising but needs to be tested in different countries and cultures.

    Relevance to clinical practice.

    By combining womens' responses on perceived reality and subjective importance ascribed to the various aspects of care measured, the QPP-I offers the care provider better guidelines on which elements to focus quality improvement work on, than would be the case if only a rank order of perceived reality ratings was available.

    • Patients' views on the quality of care are important and it is desirable that these can be assessed using short, yet valid and reliable instruments.

    • The aim of the work reported here was to develop and test a short version of an established questionnaire: Quality from the Patient's Perspective (QPP).

    • Patients (n=162, 79% response rate) receiving care at medical and surgical departments in two Swedish hospitals responded to the original QPP as well as to a newly developed short version. An ethical research committee approved the study.

    • Pearson correlations were computed between the long and short forms and differences between means were analysed with t-tests. Reliability was estimated by computing Cronbach alpha coefficients.

    • Correlations of acceptable size were found between the short form and the original QPP. The short form also had acceptable reliability coefficients.

    • The strengths of the work are that the items in the short version are derived from a patient perspective and are formulated in words used by patients; the items still have a theoretical foundation, which makes the interpretation of results more meaningful; global formulations such as `What do you think about your care?' have been avoided; the short format should make the questionnaire more attractive for many patients to respond to.

    • Limitations are that results indicate that the short form does not fully measure what the long form does. Therefore, when the short form is used in practice, a two-step procedure is suggested, where a follow-up is done with a selection of items from the original long form. This selection could be restricted to areas where problems may be suspected, based on the results from the short form.

    Advanced home care: Can patients' opinions on the quality of care be replaced by those of family members2004Inngår i: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 13, nr 2, s. 226-233Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background.  Advanced medical care in the patient's home setting is becoming more common. Many of the patients who receive this kind of care have severe illnesses and are unable to respond to questions about the quality of care. The research question was: are the patients’ opinions congruent with those of family members?

    Aim.  To explore and compare the relationship between patients’ perception of the quality of care and close family members’ perception of this care as well as their perception of the patients’ perception.

    Methods.  Sixty-seven patients receiving advanced home care, 82 family members (54 matched patient + family member pairs) participated. Data were collected using a short version of the quality from the patient's perspective questionnaire modified to advanced home care.

    Results.  A high degree of perceptual congruence was found between patients and their family members. The similarity was also high between family members’ own opinion and their appraisal of how the patient perceived the care. A subgroup of family members who met the patient once a week or less often deviated from this pattern.

    Conclusion.  Patients’ views on the quality of care are congruent with the opinions of family members if they meet every day (live together) and share the same everyday and care-related experiences. The results can be understood in the light of empathic accuracy theory.

    Relevance to clinical practice.  The findings of this study have important implications for clinical nursing practice. Family members’ perception of the quality of care may be a valuable data source for nurses in the case of advanced home care if the patient and family member share the same everyday, care-related experiences, otherwise family members’ perception tend to be more critical than those of the patients themselves.

    Implementation of patient-focused care: Before-after effects on work climate and quality of care in the eyes of patients and providers2014Inngår i: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, ISSN 0952-6862, E-ISSN 1758-6542, Vol. 27, s. 594-604Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to evaluate an organizationally oriented, patient-focused care (PFC) model's effects on care quality and work climate.

    Design/methodology/approach– The study has a before-after (PFC implementation) design. The sample included 1,474 patients and 458 healthcare providers in six participating wards before and after PFC implementation, plus five additional randomly chosen wards, which only featured in the post-assessment.

    Findings– No pre-post differences were found regarding care perceptions or provider work climate evaluations. Statistically significant improvements were noted among provider care evaluations. Using aggregate-level ward data, multiple regression analyses showed that high adherence to PFC principles and a positive work climate contributed significantly to variance among care quality ratings.

    Research limitations/implications– Among healthcare providers, questions related to specific PFC aspects during evenings, nights and weekends had to be dropped owing to a low response rate.

    Practical implications– An important requirement for both practice and research is to tailor PFC to various health and social care contexts.

    Originality/value– The study is large-scale before-after PFC model review, where patient and provider data were collected using well-established measurements.
