Abstract [en]

This study focus on adolescents motivations about remaining in rural areas in the Mid Sweden Region, a part of Sweden with decreasing school performance scores and high out-migration. The study is based on 1,500 young people’s responses to a Web-based survey within the framework of a regional school development project. The research questions focused on: whether youths were going to stay there or move the future in urban or rural areas, influences, and the future choices and differences among genders, regions, and age groups. The empirical data are processed with statistical analysis. The study confirms previous research on young people’s relocations from rural areas; jobs and education are important motives, and the most prone to move are women. What is new knowledge is that lessons about the region’s importance have a positive, significant effect on individuals’ plans to remain in their home municipality. This can and should be highlighted in local, regional, and national politics, but more importantly in school discourses. Since school plays a role in students’ thinking and future choices, a larger formation effort could be of great value for norms and regional political standpoints. The study has relevance to the international terms of similar geographical areas.

Abstract [en]

ICT, information- and communication technologies, and e-health services are essential for meeting future care demands. Greater knowledge regarding the implementation of e-health services in long-term care for older people is needed. The purpose of the study was to explore older people’s use of e-health services and associations between frequency of use and perceived benefits. In the longitudinal comparative intervention study (n = 65), intervention group participants (n = 42) used an e-health service for 1.5 years. A control group (n = 23) used similar services provided in a traditional manner. Data was collected through questionnaires and analyzed using linear and logistic regressions. Although general use of the Internet was similar in both groups, the e-health group perceived significantly higher benefits. The component information- and education programs, developed specifically for the e-health service, had the highest association with benefits. Conclusion: e-health services targeted at supporting older people who care for a spouse at home can provide benefits which most likely will not be obtained without participation in an organized e-service. Care professionals play an essential role in encouraging spouse caregivers to become e-service users. Keywords: e-health; spouse caregiver; caregiver support; independence; frequency of use; benefits

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we explore the meaning of a specific follow-up system in different social work practices. We want to gain understanding about if the system can be an empowering tool for the practitioners to learn in their professional work. We interviewed four practitioners in different teams in order to find out how they describe the follow-up system as a tool, how they describe the knowledge they produce with help of it and what this means to them.

We have found that the practitioners describe the tool as an easy way to present results which are often described as 'facts'. The teams mainly use their specific follow-ups to present their work to others and in relation to that the tool serves a purpose for the team to gain credibility and be considered as professional. Their use can be understood in light of Evidence Based Practice and performance measurement as a discourse which sets limits and have effects on professional learning.

Abstract [en]

This research examined teachers’ attitudes in a school development project, The best regional educational system in the world which focuses on regional development and school improvement. The project was performed in counties in Mid Sweden, which have a lower educational level and school achievements and a competence escape compare with other parts of Sweden. Project schools were compared to references schools concerning staffs perception of the pedagogical platform. This study is based on a web-based survey. The quantitative results show that two of the factors in the survey distinguished themselves with statistical significance; namely, the pedagogical platform was 0.44 (p=0.036) and leadership factor, which was 0.25 (p=0.052) was lower for the project schools. The directed content analysis showed differences regarding awareness of the pedagogical platform concerning understanding vs. ambiguity and specifically targeting vs. general descriptions. The reference schools described an understanding of the school’s overall educational platform and described more clearly the school’s focus. The study points to the importance of teachers are aware of their own school platform to develop leadership and teams, which in turn influences student learning and achievement. If schools in the two counties are to be successful, in terms of students’ school performance and the competitiveness of the region, the pedagogical platform should be made clear to staff and be anchored in the teachers’ team work, probably even more than in other schools.

Abstract [en]

We conducted a pragmatic, mixed methods study comparing rural family caregivers receiving e-health caregiver support (n = 35) with a control group (n = 21) receiving conventional, non-e-health, caregiver support. After 18 months, the benefits of support were evaluated using the Care Effectiveness Scale (40-items exploring the domains of preparedness, enrichment and predictability). In all domains the e-health group scored significantly higher than the control group. The adjusted difference for overall benefits was 3.0 (P = 0.02) on the scale 0-10. In addition, semi structured interviews were conducted with a sub-sample of the caregivers. For the e-health group flexibility, availability and being able to individualise the support were essential factors. All caregivers in the control group found conventional support to be beneficial, but also stressed unmet needs related to the conventional support being standardised and non-flexible. The study suggests that providers of caregiver support should offer e-health support as an alternative to conventional caregiver support, as it can be more beneficial to family caregivers.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we present a profile and analysis of children in the out-of-home care system in Sweden. We describe the conditions of three age groups of children and young people prior to their entry into care, the reasons for placement as given by social workers and documented in the children's case files, and analyze their movements in and out of care drawing attention to the issues of placement instability and breakdown. Our analyses reveal that there are important differences between age groups in rationales for placement, that a significant majority of children who returned home from care did so before social workers considered care no longer necessary, and that significant numbers of placements are notable in their instability. This study points to the need to develop participatory frameworks for practice beyond the rhetoric of solidarity and democracy that underlies Sweden's Social Services Act.

Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes stability in out-of-home care for children in Sweden. The study hasfocused on placement breakdown but also used planned movements and re-placement tostudy placement stability. The sample consists of 213 children who started 317placements during 2005 and 2006. Social work case files were examined to follow everyplacement for, at most, two years from the day that the placement began. Those childrenwho finished their period of care during the study’s follow-up period were monitored forone year after completion of placement to see if "returns home" were stable or if the childwas re-placed in care.The analyses reveal that a significant majority of children who returned home fromcare did so before social workers considered care no longer necessary. The most commonreason for end of a placement for preschool aged children was placement movements andfor teenager’s placement breakdowns. This result indicates that type of instabilitydepends on children’s age.As in other research, our study revealed teenagers or children with aggressivebehavior had an increased risk of placement breakdown. The risk for re-placementincreased if the child’s last placement ended because parents withdrew their consent forplacement or if the child was placed in institutional care. This study points to the need todiscuss the importance of consent, particularly parents of younger children and withyouths themselves. It also indicates that if social service wants to increase placementstability they have to take the age of the child in consideration.
