    Triage på akutmottagning: -vad påverkar sjuksköterskans arbete?2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Triagesystem användes för att identifiera allvarligt sjuka från mindre sjuka på akutmottagningar. En snabb och adekvat behandling var viktig för en god patientsäkerhet. En sjuksköterskas felbedömning kunde ge allvarliga konsekvenser för en patient och andra vårdsökande. Syfte: Att belysa faktorer som påverkar sjuksköterskan i sitt triagearbete på akutmottagning. Metod: En litteraturöversikt gjordes och 18 resultatartiklar inkluderades. Analysarbetet inspirerades av kvalitativ innehållsanalys och resulterade i 4 kategorier och 13 underkategorier. Resultat: Sjuksköterskans triagearbete påverkades av färdigheter, personliga egenskaper, organisation och tillgång till information. Diskussion: Få sjuksköterskor hade utbildning i triage vilket borde uppmärksammas mer med tanke på att ett stort antal patienter söker till akutmottagningar varje dag. Sjuksköterskor borde utgå ifrån gemensamma riktlinjer för att patienter skall behandlas lika oberoende vilken akutmottagning de söker vård på. Slutsats: Erfarenhet, utbildning, kommunikation, intuition, självtillit, arbetsbelastning, arbetsteam, arbetsuppgift, triageskala, helhetsbedömning, initial bedömning, objektiv- samt subjektiv data påverkade triagebedömningen. Troligen förekom en samverkan mellan dem vilket gjorde området komplext.

    Socialt arbete, stöd och matchning: Upplevelser från ungdomar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to study a specific labour market policy support and match (Stödoch matchning) and try to investigate if it had an effect on the unemployed youth’sunemployment situation. The purpose of the study is also to investigate if the unemployedyouths that where chosen for the study had gotten any given effect after attending the labourmarket policy. Because we aim to do a research on the given effect on each individual wehave chosen to a qualitative study. Therefore, we have chosen to interview seven individualsbetween the age of 18 to 25 that have participated in the specific labour market policy. Theyouths we chose were randomly chosen and the interview was semi-structured with openquestions to be able to find a prominent theme in their stories. Unemployment among youngpeople is a social problem. The labor market policy efforts currently available are made forhelping the unemployed and to address unemployment in Sweden.

    Ultra-Thin Films of Reduced Graphene Oxide (RGO) Nanoplatelets Functionalized with Different Organic Materials2016In: Journal of Bioprocessing & Biotechniques, ISSN 2155-9821, Vol. 6, no 3, article id 1000272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This work aims the functionalization of reduced graphene oxide nanoplatelets with chitosan (G-chitosan) and also with poly(styrenesulfonic acid) (GPSS), thus forming stable, dispersed aqueous solutions. G-chitosan and GPSS solutions allowed the layer-by-layer (LbL) film formation with glucose oxidase (GOx), establishing multilayered nanostructures with elevated control in thickness and morphology. The graphene nanoplatelets were characterized by UV-vis and FTIR spectroscopies, resulting in good adherence and linear deposition of the graphene nanoplatelets with GOx in the LbL structures.Cyclic voltammetry shows an enlargement in the current intensity with increasing number of deposited LbL layers, possibly owing to the formation of conducting paths by the graphene nanoplatelets in the tailored multilayer nanomaterial formed

    Coordination chemistry of N,N,4-tris(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)aniline, a novel flexible, multimodal ligand2007In: CrystEngComm, ISSN 1466-8033, E-ISSN 1466-8033, Vol. 9, no 11, p. 997-1010Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ligand N, N, 4-tris(pyridin-2-ylmethyl) aniline was synthethised using a multicomponent reaction, which is applicable to the synthesis of a large library of similarly structured ligands. A range of metal complexes with copper, cobalt and manganese ions were crystallised as discrete complexes, dimers and 1D coordination polymers, illustrating the flexibility of the ligand in the preparation of diverse structures. While coordination about the metal centres is similar in each group with a common metal ion, the different structures represent materials with varying structural and packing topologies. Varying the counterions and crystallisation solvents gives rise to discrete complexes, dimers and a porous 1D coordination polymer. In the latter case, solvent molecules entrapped in the channels are replaceable and guest exchange is detected by single crystal and powder diffraction indicating interesting storage possibilities.

    Tvångsvård, mental våldtäkt?: Klienters upplevelser av LVM2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien har en kvalitativ innehållsanalytisk ansats med syfte att synliggöra klientperspektivet av tvångsvård av missbrukare i Sverige, enligt LVM lagstiftning. Semistrukturerade intervjuer med 9 klienter från två SiS institutioner har genomförts och könsfördelningen var jämn. Kvinnor är generellt mer positivt inställda till tvångsvård. Det har belysts brister i befintlig vård på LVM-institutionerna. Tydligt är att det finns olika åsikter angående hur det är och hur det borde vara. Vissa menar att det är bra som det är trots brister, andra menar att det som behövs finns tillgängligt, medan en tredje syn är att det mesta bör ändras. Samarbete mellan parter behöver förstärkas för att bibehålla viljestyrka till ett liv utan droger. Hjälp inför framtiden har av majoriteten av respondenterna belysts inte fås under vistelsen på institutionen, det förväntades komma efter, eventuellt till friare vårdform som klienter slussas till innan utskrivning, eller senare i samråd med socialtjänsten.

    Sjuksköterskors upplevelser av orsaker till bristande läkemedelshantering2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Vårdskador är ett internationellt problem inom vården och en stor del av dessa är läkemedelsrelaterade. Följderna blir skador eller i värsta fall döden för patienten. Ofta kan det resultera i förlängda vårdtider och emotionell påverkan för sjuksköterskan som har begått misstaget. Syfte: Att belysa sjuksköterskors erfarenheter om vilka orsaker som bidrar till att fel begås vid hantering av läkemedel. Metod: Arbetet gjordes som en litteraturöversikt. Vetenskapliga artiklar i form av primärkällor söktes i databaserna PubMed och Cinahl. Fjorton artiklar hittades med hjälp av relevanta vedertagna söktermer. Dessa granskades med hjälp av granskningsmall och analyserades genom att de lästes upprepade gånger därefter sammanställdes i en översiktstabell. Likheter och skillnader jämfördes. Sex huvudområden identifierades med hjälp av färgkodning. Resultat: Huvudområdena som framkom var pressade arbetssituationer, brister i arbetsmiljön, otydlig information, brister i samarbete och laganda, brist på uppmärksamhet och brist på kunskap och erfarenhet. Diskussion: Bemanningen bör motsvara arbetstyngden på avdelningen, arbetsmiljön kan förbättras för att undvika distraktioner, tekniska system för läkemedelshantering kan bidra till att höja säkerheten. Slutsats: Förbättrad kunskap om bakomliggande orsaker till bristande läkemedelshantering kan bidra till högre patientsäkerhet på sjukhus. Mera forskning i ämnet kring orsaker och preventionsarbete behövs.

    Uppbyggnad av kvalitetsledningssystem i utbildningsverksamhet: En kvalitativ studie på Barn- och utbildningsförvaltningeni Flens kommun2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Aktuell forskning visar att svenska skolresultat är nedåtgående, där bristande systematiskt kvalitetsarbete pekas ut som en möjlig anledning till att eleverna inte når de grundläggande målen. Flens kommun var en av de kommuner som uppmanats av Skolverket att utveckla sitt systematiska kvalitetsarbete och vidare initierade kommunen uppbyggnaden av ett kvalitetsledningssystem. Studiens syfte var att erhålla en djupare förståelse för medarbetarna i Flens kommuns upplevelser av uppbyggnaden. Studien sökte genom ett kvalitativt perspektiv, svar på frågor kring vad ett kvalitetsledningssystem kan definieras som, vilka moment som är betydelsefulla samt vilka deltagare som upplevs betydelsefulla vid uppbyggandet. Resultaten från de båda sammanställdes i fyra kategorier: Anpassning till kontext, Stabil process, Management och Allas delaktighet. I slutsatsen framkom att ett kvalitetsledningssystem ska vara ett stöd i det dagliga arbetet, ett system som leder mot kvalitet, där alla görs delaktiga. Som stöd i kvalitetsarbetet föreslogs befintliga modeller och teorier.

    Beyond Post-productivism: From Rural Policy Discourse To Rural Diversity2014In: European Countryside, ISSN 1803-8417, E-ISSN 1803-8417, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 297-306Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a strong discourse in public policy aiming at transforming rural places from venues of primary production into truly diverse socioeconomic landscapes. Yet conceptualisations of the rural as envisioned in the policy and politics of the ‘new economy’ are often difficult to see materialise on the ground. However, post-productive activity in rural areas has become a major focus for rural studies scholars. This paper investigates the ideas of post-productivism and post-production in existing literature, and argues for a holistic understanding of post-productivism as an idea and political ambition rather than a manifest change of rural economic activity. The purpose of the study is to make clear the division between the related concepts in order to better understand processes of rural change in relation to different geographical contexts. It is argued that post-productivism as a concept stands apart from de facto post-production and should be regarded as part of broader regional development discourses. The paper outlines several important fields in which post-productivism is a necessary component for rural transformation and development. While it is not always easily captured in indicators or empirical studies in rural locations, post-productivism exists at the level of discourse and planning and thus has real effects on the ground. The paper concludes by offering suggestions on how to empirically investigate the concepts of post-production and post-productivism.

    Effects of a Recovery-Focused Intervention for Stress Management: A Randomized Controlled Trial2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    INTRODUCTION

    Stress symptoms, burnout, poor mental health and long-term sick leave related to these are major problems in Sweden and elsewhere. Evidence-based prevention and treatment efforts are lacking. Research indicates that stress related health problems primarily could be conceptualized as deficiencies in recovery responses between stress periods rather than high level of stress responses per se. Therefore it is relevant to examine whether it is effective to intervene the recovery behavior – instead of the stress behavior - of people with stress symptoms.

    OBJECTIVES

    The primary purpose of this study was to investigate if a behavioral oriented recovery management intervention could enhance “recovery behaviors” and experiences of recovery and reduce stress related ill health.

    METHODS A group based intervention program focusing exclusively on “recovery behavior” in everyday life (earlier developed and tested in two pilot studies) was evaluated in an experimental group study. The intervention consisted of seven group sessions of 2.5 hours over a period of approximately 10 weeks supplemented by an internet based treatment support system. Self- referred subjects with scores above 24.4 on the Perceived stress scale were randomized to the intervention (n=26) or a waiting-list (n=33).

    RESUL T

    Statistically significant and clinically relevant effects were achieved for the intervention group compare to the waiting-list group: recovery behaviors and experiences of recovery were increased, and levels of perceived stress, worry, anxiety, depression and exhaustion were decreased.

    DISCUSSION These results are in line with two previous pilot studies that we have done. A behavioral and recovery oriented intervention seems to be effective to increase the recovery of the individual and decrease stress related ill health. There are reasons to continue to explore the potential of recovery-oriented interventions for example for different populations (such as people with more extensive clinical health problems) and in different contexts.

    Stress-Recovery Management: A Pilot Study Using a Single-Subject Experimental Design2019In: Behavior modification, ISSN 0145-4455, E-ISSN 1552-4167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Work-related stress is considered one of the biggest health and safety challenges among the member states of the European Union. A critical factor is recovery between periods of stress. The primary purpose of this study was to investigate whether a brief behaviorally oriented stress-recovery management intervention delivered in an individual setting could reduce stress symptoms among individuals with high levels of perceived stress. A single-subject experimental design with multiple baselines across three individuals was used. The results indicate, with at least moderate experimental control, a temporal relation between the start of the intervention and beneficial changes from baseline in continuous self-recordings of stress symptoms. The changes were maintained at 1-year and 5-year follow-up assessments. Also, self-reporting inventories measuring perceived stress, worry, anxiety, depression, burnout, type A behavior, unwinding and recuperation from work stress, and insomnia showed overall changes in beneficial directions at post-assessment, as well as the two follow-up assessments. The results indicate that a behaviorally oriented stress-recovery management intervention delivered in an individual setting can reduce stress symptoms in individuals with high levels of perceived stress. However, for firm conclusions to be drawn, further research is needed.

    Behavioral stress recovery management intervention for people with high levels of perceived stress: A randomized controlled trial2019In: International Journal of Stress Management, ISSN 1072-5245, E-ISSN 1573-3424Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Continuous and prolonged exposure to stressors or unsuccessfully dealing with such exposure has been suggested as precursors for burnout. Current research indicates that such stress problems could be conceptualized as deficiencies in recovery between periods of stress. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a behaviorally oriented stress recovery management intervention for people experiencing high levels of stress. A total of 73 individuals with experiences of stress symptoms and high levels of perceived stress (≥ 25 on the Perceived Stress Scale) were randomly allocated to either a 10-week intervention group or a waiting-list control group. Participants were assessed at preintervention, postintervention, and 3-month follow-up. The Perceived Stress Scale, questions about tension, and the Shirom–Melamed Burnout Questionnaire were used as primary outcome measures, and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale was used as a secondary outcome measure. Data were analyzed following the intention-to-treat principle. The analysis demonstrated statistically significant improvements for all measures at posttreatment and at follow-up. The between-groups effect sizes were high at posttreatment and moderate–to-high at follow-up. Intervention focused on stress recovery behavior seems to be an effective way of reducing perceived stress, tension, burnout symptoms, anxiety, and depression in people with stress symptoms and high levels of perceived stress in everyday life. The tested intervention warrants further research. Other stress recovery behavior interventions need to be tested to draw conclusions on the efficacy of stress recovery behavior interventions in general regarding stress and burnout.

    Recent research has indicated that recovery from work stress and effort might be crucial for health and well-being. Thus, a valid measurement of recovery becomes important. The main purpose of the present study was to empirically evaluate and seeking support for the hypothesized four-factor model of the Swedish version of Recovery Experience Questionnaire (REQ). The total sample (N = 680) was randomly split into two subsamples. The first subsample was used for finding the best-fitting model using an exploratory factor analysis and the second subsample was used to test the a priori model using confirmatory factor analysis. The results support the proposed four-factor structure of the scale for both males and females. Additionally, apart from high reliability estimates, this instrument proved to have good convergent and discriminant validity for all four factors. Implications for the use of the REQ in conjunction with recovery-focused interventions were discussed, as were limitations such as low response rate.

    Medborgarlön: En argumentationsanalys av debatten i ETC och Dagens Arena2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Många drabbas idag av brister och nedskärning i socialförsäkringssystemet ochglobaliseringen har skapat nya klyftor. Medborgarlön, även kallat basinkomst, skulle kunnavara en välfärdsreform som adresserar detta. Studien syftar till att undersöka vilka argumentsom förs fram i debatten om medborgarlön. För att besvara studiens syfte och frågeställningargenomfördes argumentationsanalys på fem artiklar från två tidskrifter, ETC och DagensArena, som profilerar sig som radikala och progressiva. Dessa artiklar tar upp många viktigaåsikter och belyser både meningsskiljaktigheterna och gemensamma premisser som råderkring ett potentiellt införande av medborgarlön. Argumenten ställer sig positiva till utjämningav samhällets resurser och ett behovsbaserat välfärdssystem, men det spås att klyftorna ochexkludering från samhället kommer att öka i och med medborgarlön.

    Enabling communication between Wireless Sensor Networks and The Internet-of-Things: A CoAP communication stack2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis focuses on enabling the communication between Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet-of-Things applications.  In order to achieve this goal, the first step has been to investigate the concept of the Internet-of-Things and then to understand how this scenario could be used to interconnect multiple Wireless Sensor Networks in order to develop context-aware applications which could handle sensor data coming from this type of network. 

    The second step was to design and implement a communication stack which enabled Wireless Sensor Networks to communicate with an Internet-of-Things platform. The CoAP protocol has been used as application protocol for the communication with the Wireless Sensor Networks. The solution has been developed in Java programming language and extended the sensor and actuator layer of the Sensible Things platform. 

    The third step of this thesis has been to investigate in which real world applications the developed solution could have been used. Next a Proof of Concept application has been implemented in order to simulate a simple fire detection system, where multiple Wireless Sensor Networks collaborate to send their temperature data to a control center. The last step was to evaluate the whole system, specifically the responsiveness and the overhead introduced by the developed communication stack.

    1,135 Genomes Reveal the Global Pattern of Polymorphism in Arabidopsis thaliana2016In: Cell, ISSN 0092-8674, E-ISSN 1097-4172, Vol. 166, no 2, p. 481-491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Arabidopsis thaliana serves as a model organism for the study of fundamental physiological, cellular, and molecular processes. It has also greatly advanced our understanding of intraspecific genome variation. We present a detailed map of variation in 1,135 high-quality re-sequenced natural inbred lines representing the native Eurasian and North African range and recently colonized North America. We identify relict populations that continue to inhabit ancestral habitats, primarily in the Iberian Peninsula. They have mixed with a lineage that has spread to northern latitudes from an unknown glacial refugium and is now found in a much broader spectrum of habitats. Insights into the history of the species and the fine-scale distribution of genetic diversity provide the basis for full exploitation of A. thaliana natural variation through integration of genomes and epigenomes with molecular and non-molecular phenotypes.

    Evaluating Coverage Effectiveness of Multi-Camera Domes Placement for Volumetric Surveillance2017In: ICDSC 2017 Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras, New York, NY, USA: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017, Vol. F132201, p. 49-54Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Multi-camera dome is composed of a number of cameras arranged to monitor a half sphere of the sky. Designing a network of multi-camera domes can be used to monitor flying activities in open large area, such as birds' activities in wind parks. In this paper, we present a method for evaluating the coverage effectiveness of the multi-camera domes placement in such areas. We used GPS trajectories of free flying birds over an area of 9 km2 to analyze coverage effectiveness of randomly placed domes. The analysis is based on three criteria namely, detection, positioning and the maximum resolution captured. The developed method can be used to evaluate results of designing and optimizing dome placement algorithms for volumetric monitoring systems in order to achieve maximum coverage.

    Full Coverage Optimization for Multi Camera Dome Placement in Volumetric Monitoring2018In: ACM International Conference Proceeding Series, New York, NY, USA: ACM Digital Library, 2018, article id Article No. 2Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Volumetric monitoring can be challenging due to having a 3D target space and moving objects within it. Multi camera dome is proposed to provide a hemispherical coverage of the 3D space around it. This paper introduces a method that optimizes multi camera placement for full coverage in volumetric monitoring system. Camera dome placement is modeled in a volume by adapting the hexagonal packing of circles to provide full coverage at a given height, and 100% detection of flying objects within it. The coverage effectiveness of different placement configurations was assessed using an evaluation environment. The proposed placement is applicable in designing and deploying surveillance systems for remote outdoor areas, such as sky monitoring in wind farms and airport runways in order to record and analyze flying activities.

    Design Exploration of Multi-Camera Dome2019In: ICDSC 2019 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras, New York, NY: ACM Digital Library, 2019, article id Article No. 7aConference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Visual monitoring systems employ distributed smart cameras toeffectively cover a given area satisfying specific objectives. Thechoice of camera sensors and lenses and their deployment affectsdesign cost, accuracy of the monitoring system and the ability toposition objects within the monitored area. Design cost can bereduced by investigating deployment topology such as groupingcameras together to form a dome at a node and optimize it formonitoring constraints. The constraints may include coverage area,number of cameras that can be integrated in a node and pixelresolution at a given distance. This paper presents a method foroptimizing the design cost of multi-camera dome by analyzing tradeoffsbetween monitoring constraints. The proposed method can beused to reduce monitoring cost while fulfilling design objectives.Results show how to increase coverage area for a given cost byrelaxing requirements on design constraints. Multi-camera domescan be used in sky monitoring applications such as monitoring windparks and remote air-traffic control of airports where all-round fieldof view about a point is required to monitor.

    Physical activity, health, body mass index, sleeping habits and bodycomplaints in Australian senior high school students2008In: International Journal of Adolescent Medicine and Health, ISSN 0334-0139, E-ISSN 2191-0278, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 501-512Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Adolescents in the industrial world are becoming less physically active and are increasingly adopting a sedentary life-style in front of computers and television screens. OBJECTIVE: to determine self-related health, physical activity, sleeping habits, prevalence of overweight, and body complaints in Australian senior high school students. METHODS: Participants were 466 high school students aged 15-17 years enrolled in academic and vocational programs. A questionnaire was completed at two senior high schools with questions about weight and height, health, physical activity, type of physical activity/sport, intensity, sleeping habits, and possible injuries or complaints during the last three months. RESULTS: Seventy seven percent of the high school students participated in sports on a regular basis. Compared with vocational programs, more males and females in academic programs participated in sports (71% and 80% respectively) (p = .036). Males reported significantly better health than females (p < .0001). 65% of the study group reported body complaints during the last 3 months. A higher number of females than males reported complaints about the back (p = .007) and the hip (p = .05). Good sleep was reported in 82.1% of males and in 76.6% of females. In males, 44.3% were often sleepy in the daytime (females 56.6%, p < .01). CONCLUSIONS: Underweight, physical activity and good sleep are factors with significant positive effect on good health, whereas overweight is a negative factor. Proper sleep habits and higher physical activity levels should be promoted among high school students, and TV viewing time and video game use restricted. Additionally, schools should provide opportunities for young people to participate in a wider range of physical activities that address their individual needs while promoting the health benefits of engaging in regular exercise.
