    Patient participation in the clinical pathway: Nurses' perceptions of adults' involvement in haemodialysis2019In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 574-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To develop knowledge of nurses' perceptions of participation for patients treated with haemodialysis and their next of kin.

    Design: A qualitative study with a hermeneutic approach.

    Methods: The data were collected in 2015 through focus groups with 13 nurses in Central Norway.

    Results: The nurses reported that patient participation ranging from non-involvement to shared decision-making was related to whether dialysis was initiated as acute or scheduled. The restrictions required in chronic haemodialysis limited participation. The next of kin were not involved. The nurses highlighted interventions on both the individual and system levels to strengthen participation.

    Conclusion: Dialysis units should develop strategies for participation related to individual needs and design treatment in cooperation with patients and their families, ensuring involvement early in the clinical pathway. Further research is needed on issues related to next of kin, including their desired level of involvement.

    “Vi leker kunskap”: Lek som verktyg för lärande genom ett pedagogperspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka verksamma förskollärares erfarenheter av att arbeta med leksom verktyg för lärande. Detta undersökte vi genom kvalitativa intervjuer av semistruktureradkaraktär med sex stycken förskollärare. I analysen av vår data framkom det två teman: Hur lek somverktyg skapar förutsättningar till lärande och Pedagogens betydelse i leken för barns lärande.Resultatet har visat att det finns ett samstämmigt synsätt på lek som verktyg för lärande. Det har ävenframkommit att leken anses vara något lustfyllt och viktig för barns lärande. Men även attpedagogernas eget synsätt på leken är av stor betydelse för huruvida leken kan användas somverktyg för lärande. Pedagogernas erfarenheter beskriver ett tydligt samband mellan lek och lärandedär de menar att dessa hör ihop, och dem är samstämmiga att deras egen roll har en stor betydelse förhur och när ett lärande sker genom leken. I resultatet framkommer även att pedagogen har ett ansvaratt ge både tid och material för lek så att leken kan användas som verktyg för lärande.

    Building trust and confidence through sustainable information systems research: Towards a common future2015In: INFuture 2015: e-Institutions - Openness, Accessibility, and Preservation / [ed] Karen Anderson, Luciana Duranti, Rafal Jaworski, Hrvoje Stancic, Sanja Seljan, Vladimir Mateljan, Zagreb: Department of Information and Communication Sciences, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb , 2015, p. 9-18Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Information Systems research group at Mid Sweden University is the result of four separate groups, spread across three disciplines, artificially thrown together because we didn’t seem to fit into other developed research groups. What we were seen to have in common was ‘information’. The disciplines are: Archives and Information Science, Business Management and Organization, and Informatics.

    Shortly after this uncertain start, the University launched a demanding internal process for Assessment of Research and Coproduction (ARC13) over the previous five years. We didn’t have that much past together, so we set out to build ourselves a future, exploring our common interests as we gathered data for the evaluation. We pooled our research, hired a facilitator to help with a SWOT analysis, built trust within the group and achieved a remarkably good report from the external assessors. Participation in the multidisciplinary InterPARES Trust in Digital Records in an Increasingly Networked World Project has been an inspiring factor in the Archives and Information Science contribution to our new collaboration. Our Information Systems research group now focuses on five research challenges: Information value, quality, accessibility, sustainability and trustworthiness.  Now we are having fun exploring the possibilities, confident that our InfoSys research group has its own sustainable future.

    Careers and education in archives and records management2010In: Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences / [ed] Marcia J. Bates, CRC Press, 2010, 3rd, p. 755-762Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Educators and trainers in the field of archives and records management face the challenge of providing for practitioners with a widely varying educational background while preparing them for a professional environment that has changed rapidly in recent years.  Development of research programs is also crucial to the advancement of the profession and the survival of university-based professional education in the discipline.  Competency standards for records management are discussed, including their appropriate role in training and education for practioners. Examples of education and training programs from around the world are mentioned, although the coverage in this article is not intended to be exhaustive.  The role of professional associations as providers of training and in supporting and evaluating professional education programs is also addressed. The International Council on Archives Section for Archival Educators and Trainers provides a community of practice for educators and trainers. Its objectives and recent activities are described.

     

    A wide and growing range of career choices is available to archivists and records managers. Traditional employers are national and regional archives, but there are many opportunities for specialising in aspects of the profession and the types of organisations served by the archives. Professionals with the necessary expertise required to manage digital services are in demand. Initiatives to support people of indigenous origin joining the profession and encouragement for the development of community archives are an area of growing interest.

    Education and training for records professionals2007In: Records Management Journal, ISSN 0956-5698, E-ISSN 1758-7689, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 94-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to explore the definitions of and the differences between education and training and the role of each in nurturing and supporting lifelong learning for records professionals: records managers and archivists.

     

    Design/methodology/approach – General definitions of “education”, “training”, “competence” and “competencies” have been deliberately selected as an accessible starting-point for reflection. Different models for competencies and the lack of consensus on what constitutes an appropriate competency model for the profession are considered.

     

    Findings – Education provides new professionals with knowledge of theory of the discipline and helps them to explore current practice. It provides the information-seeking skills and encourages a reflective habit that underpins independent lifelong learning. Training focuses on acquisition of specific skills and competencies necessary in the workplace. More is needed for a viable professional future; education for research is essential to the development of professional knowledge and for the survival of education programmes in universities.

     

    Practical implications – Professional associations as leaders of opinion and practice have an important role in finding the way forward. Although competency standards are more appropriate for evaluating training programmes, professional associations which have embraced competency standards have attempted to use them to evaluate education programmes, but prefer not to consider evaluating training programmes and training providers.

     

    Originality/value – This paper aims to raise awareness of the need to give appropriate weight to education, training and research to ensure that records professionals are known for high levels of competence as well as productive reflection and creative forward thinking.

    Global archive and recordkeeping research agendas: encouraging participation and getting over the hurdles2007In: Journal of The Society of Archivists, ISSN 0037-9816, E-ISSN 1465-3907, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 35-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The International Council on Archives Section for Archival Educators and Trainers (ICA/SAE) has had a research agenda as one of its projects for eight years, but to date there has been little contribution and no real outcomes. A research database has also been developed by ICA/SAE, with the purpose of documenting research projects of any size from dissertations to collaborative projects. It remains to encourage researchers and research students to record their projects and keep them up to date. One of the main barriers to developing strong research programmes in universities is the difficulty of developing a research culture in small programmes where academics carry heavy teaching and administrative loads. A learning community of potential researchers must be developed, as well as ways to encourage connections for future partnerships between experienced and novice researchers as well as between university-based researchers and practitioners. A few very successful collaborative research programmes have been developed and we can learn from them. These include InterPARES, the Records Continuum Research Group and the Cedars Project. They are exemplified by

    •a clear focus for their research;

    •collaboration between universities and industry partners;

    •a clear management structure and sound documentation;

    •a well-managed website for dissemination of research products.

    Implementing Enterprise Information Management: A Research- Based Approach in Two Swedish Municipalities.2010In: IQ (InfoRMAA Quarterly), ISSN 0816-200X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 32-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An implementation program for organisation-wide recordkeeping systems in two Swedish local governments is being informed by a research-based approach in cooperation with Mid Sweden University. The Sundsvall and Härnösand municipalities will provide the platform for the Research Centre’s major project for 2009-2011, which brings together experience in researching recordkeeping issues in small and medium enterprises as well as expertise in enterprise information architecture and content management. The last two provide an umbrella for document, records and archives management, web content management and business process management. The aim of this enterprise information management strategy is to promote support by decision-makers for a whole of organisation approach to sound records and information management. The overall aim of the research program is to develop models and implementation methods that will support standards-compliant, efficient and long-term digital information management in both public and private organisations.

    Recordkeeping definitions in legislation:: a conceptual step towards smoothing business interaction in the digitally networked world?2013In: Archives: the Future: Australian Society of Archivists 2013 Conference / [ed] Shapley, Maggie, Canberra, 2013Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Legislation is important to recordkeeping strategies and requirements, since it determines which records are needed for legally legitimate actions. Yet the concepts of a document, a record, a case, a transaction, etc., are frequently defined differently in various laws even within national boundaries and are urgently in need of harmonization to minimize complications and barriers to e-business transactions.

    Every country has its own legislation system which has been adjusted over time in correlation to national context and its surrounding society (Duranti, 1989-1990, p. 5). Duranti and Goh (2012) provided sound arguments as to why it is important to ensure national archival legislation keeps pace with our digitally networked society with its increasingly blurred borders. In addition to their own national law, members of the European Union (EU) are obliged to follow EU-legislation requirements. There are three types of EU legislation: regulations, directives and decisions. A regulation is applicable in all EU countries. Directives are general rules. A decision is a stipulation of issues of concern for specifically mentioned persons or organizations (European Commission, 2013).  Recommendations and statements are not binding, but may, for example, be used by the EU as support in interpretation of EU-legislation (Sveriges Riksdag, 2013). Hence, within public organizations, there is a close relation between records, recordkeeping processes, legislation and accountability.  Yet research in Sweden has shown that 24/7 e-service web-interfaces serving e-government strategies and ambitions are sometimes developed without consulting recordkeeping professionals, in ignorance of legal requirements for capture of records and that preservation issues are rarely considered when acquiring new digital systems (Kallberg, Svärd and Sundberg, 2010). Several other European studies also identify a lack of recordkeeping awareness within public organizations (Barata, 2004; Valtonen, 2007; Shepherd, Stevenson, & Flinn, 2009; Riksarkivet, 2010). However, there is currently a strong European political ambition to implement eGovernment services, which aims to promote cross-border business development. On the other hand, this challenges archival thinking to meet business, technological and legal requirements stipulated for each country. Varying legal definitions used can cause major problems for transactions both within a country and across national borders, even in something as seemingly simple as exchanging e-invoices. This paper will discuss an approach to identifying a way forward for harmonizing legislation that contains recordkeeping requirements across the EU.

    • Identifying the range of / types of laws within countries and EU that define a record
    • Using the ICA multilingual terminology database, to check and add to definitions already found there
    • Checking against definitions found in international standards.

    Research towards harmonizing these crucial definitions will be very challenging, given linguistic and cultural differences but the ICA multilingual terminology database is a potential vehicle for checking existing usage, adding to the definitions and quotations from legalislation and the literature already found there and adding new terms. The foundation version of the ICA-funded Terminology Database, developed as an ICA Section for Archival Educators’ project led and hosted by the University of British Columbia, contains definitions with examples of usage for an initial 300 archival terms across 16 languages. It is planned for public release in the first half of 2013.

    Abstract [en]

    The author, a senior lecturer at Edith Cowan University in Australia, discusses the literature used to teach macroappraisal of electronic records through distance education techniques within an environment rooted in the Australian records continuum. In this context, students are given a sound grounding in systems analysis and design, as well as functional appraisal and the importance of metadata. A key teaching element is the International Standards Organization’s Information and Documentation – Records Management (ISO 15489), which she demonstrates has strong parallels to the principles of systems analysis and design.

    When is a record archival?: The Australian Approach to Recordkeeping2009In: Zwischen analog und digital - Schriftgutverwaltung als Herausforderung fur Archive. Beiräge zum 13. / [ed] Lutz, Alexandra, Marburg: Archivschule Marburg , 2009, p. 59-72Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Australian archival authorities take a very active role in setting records management standards, providing guidelines for records managers in their work and approving records retention and disposal schedules for state and national government agencies. Thus ‘archivists’ in Australia have a very strong role in records management processes. There are two principal drivers for this approach: one is the practical matter of capturing and managing digital records, and the other is the acceptance of the Records continuum theoretical model. This paper  outlines some specific approaches taken to identifying and managing archival records in Australian government systems and how this affects the structure of the recordkeeping professions and professional education.

    Abstract [en]

    Building virtual archives and preservation curriculum laboratories centered around born-digital and digitized records is a collaborative project currently underway between Simmons College (US) and Mid-Sweden University. In this virtual environment, issues of trust are central to the process, in terms of the both archival curriculum and the collaborative education process itself. The article describes the project, the collaboration, and offers a range of scenarios that demonstrate how the laboratories work within curriculum.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the possibilities for international common core curricula across archival education programmes in three ways. Three universities’ existing but independently developed curricula are analysed to identify common core content. The development of the programmes over time is also described noting some of the influences that have contributed to the current content of the three programmes.            A survey of the views of archival educators on the possibilities and the barriers to developing and sharing courses internationally was also conducted. Some attempts to cooperatively develop shared courses across international borders are also described, demonstrating that collaboration between archival educators is in progress.

    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable archives and preservation education in a global digital society demand collaborative frameworks and multiple, geographically diverse partnerships.  This poses considerable challenges for educators. A consortium between archival education programs at University College London, Mid Sweden University and Simmons College, Boston, is addressing these challenges within an innovative virtual learning environment developed, built and shared among the three schools. Participants from each of the three programs describe, analyze and demonstrate ongoing collaboration, research and curriculum development unified through the Digital Curriculum Laboratory (DCL). They also explore the implications of these types of learning resources and collaborative approaches for supporting archives education internationally.

    Mature Public e-Services Without Mature Recordkeeping – An Impossibility?2010In: iRMA Information and Records Management Annual, ISSN 1836-3202, p. 71-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Government has established the eGovernment Delegation agency to identify and support excellence in e-government implementation strategies. This agency has commenced working with the National Archives, to ensure that archival requirements are addressed when developing new e-services. However, the prevailing view of archives is a traditional curatorial approach, which focuses on capturing the end product once actions have been completed. In the digital environment, the prevailing archival practice frameworks are not adequate to the task of capturing the full digital context and process that is essential for a complete record. Previously, when paper records were aggregated on a physical file, the full record of processes was more likely to be captured and managed for the long term.

    Results from two empirical case studies will be used to present and illustrate the risks and problems generated by an approach where the records are not identified and captured until late in the business process. In this paper the term post hoc approach to records capture is used to describe the method whereby an attempt is made to capture records, including the necessary metadata, after they are created, without prior planning or system design. One of the Swedish eGovernment Delegation’s aims is to motivate public agencies to reach level four on Layne and Lee’s e-government maturity model, that is, full integration of interaction between agencies and citizens. However, the model does not incorporate any recordkeeping requirements in its maturity benchmarks. It is clear these kinds of e-services are so complex that late intervention by archivists will not be adequate for needed recordkeeping support and long-term preservation. So it is essential that guidance on archival preservation of integrated e-services is made available as soon as possible, particularly as current trends in government indicate that e-services will be outsourced to private providers.

    Strategies are proposed for including recordkeeping re- quirements in e-service models. Advantageously, this can be done using existing benchmarking tools such as GARP, ISO 15489, ISO 30301 and the ICA Principles and Functional Requirements for Records In Electronic Office Environments.

    Open data through the archive: A new role for archivists2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of the archivist in exploiting and accessing open data as public records in an open government environment is explored.  The possible role, responsibilities and mandate of an archivist in this new public sector context are examined. Necessary knowledge, skills and competence are identified. 

    Content:

    Expectations of a more proactive release of public records and technical developments that support new ways of publishing and reusing digital information, for example as open data on the internet, create new challenges and change the way public records are managed and made accessible to citizens, which will also involve new professions in the management of records. Fundamentally this raises questions of how, in this new management environment, the trustworthiness of the records could be maintained and how the archives and records management profession could contribute to this, related to other professionals involved in these processes.

    In Sweden there is a long tradition of openness and citizens´ right to access public records. But with the implementation of e-government follows a new perception of what openness means and “open government” is a concept that seems to go further and be more proactive. A part of this study will be to analyze and define what is meant by ‘open government’ and ‘open data’ as they are used in Sweden, i.e. how ‘open data’ differs from ‘public records’ for example. In Sweden there is no formal records manager profession, but the archivist often does the corresponding work. That is why this project also includes the archivists´ role in the open government environment.

    This study will reflect upon the archivists´ role in this process and what is needed to ensure a trusted proactive release of public records. To identify what skills, guidelines, knowledge and mandate are needed. The study will focus on StockholmCity’s work on open data, which is an important part of the open government agenda, through the perspective of Stockholm City Archives.

    Scientific contribution:

    Case study methods are used to examine the role of the archivist in the domain of access to public records in an open government and open data environment. The study examines what role an archivist in the public sector currently has, and what knowledge, skills and competence are needed for these new challenges.

    Interpretation of existing work and the perception of the situation by practicing archivists in this changing environment provide valuable data. The case study is based on the City of Stockholm because it is quite progressive in its work on open data. It is now running an open data project, in which the Stockholm City Archive plays an active role. The role of the archivist in practice, experiences and possible needs and missing factors will be explored. Data will be collected by interviews and text analysis. Needed strategies and guidelines will be identified.

    Projektet God Informationsförvaltning2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är den första publikationen i skriftserien Arkiv- och informationsvetenskap vid Mittuniversitetet producerad av Centrum för digital informationsförvaltning (CEDIF) vid Avdelningen för Arkiv- och Datavetenskap (ADV), Mittuniversitetet. Rapporten redovisar delar av det projektarbete som genomförts under namnet GoInfo (God Informationsförvaltning), under åren 2012-2015 med medel från Länsstyrelsen Västernorrland, Mittuniversitetet, Härnösands kommun och Riksarkivet Härnösand. Skriftserien är inspirerad av den tidigare rapportserien Arkiv-och informationsvetenskap vid Mitthögskolan, som utkom med sex nummer åren 1999-2000. I förordet till det första numret skrev redaktör Torbjörn Kjölstad “Det är vår förhoppning att rapportserien skall kunna förmedla en del av arkiv- och informationsvetenskapliga verksamheten vid Mitthögskolan. Vi har naturligtvis en strävan att presentera nya resultat inom detta mycket breda forskningsområde men också – och väl så viktigt – nya problemställningar och metodiska experiment”1. Vårt mål med den aktuella serien är densamma som i den tidigare: att dela med oss och sprida resultaten av vår forskning och kunskap.Ämnet arkivkunskap och dokumenthantering startade läsåret 1988/89 som en grundkurs vid Högskolan i Sundsvall/Härnösand, som senare blev Mitthögskolan. 1997 bedömde Högskoleverket att det uppfyllde kraven för magisterutbildning och magisterexamen och samma år ändrades benämningen till arkiv- och informationsvetenskap och år 2005 blev Mitthögskolan fullvärdigt universitet - Mittuniversitetet. Sedan universitet har fått ett allt större fokus på forskning så har också vårt ämne försökt att etablera en mer uttalad forskningsplattform. Det första större projekt ”Framtidens Arkiv” kom också att utgöra startskott för en rekrytering av en professur som tillsattes 2008. I Framtidens Arkiv rekryterades också ett par doktorander Erik Borglund och Lena-Maria Öberg som i anslutning till det projektet och via projekt som Bygga Villa och SMEdoc också disputerade.2 I slutet av 2009 beviljades medel till projekt CEDIF, som fick stöd av EU Europeiska regionala utvecklingsfond, Länsstyrelsen Västernorrland, Mittuniversitetet, Härnösands kommun och Sundsvalls kommun 2009-2012. Projektet syftade till att utveckla modeller för effektiv och långsiktig förvaltning av information inom framför allt offentlig sektor men även privat näringsliv. Inom detta projekt rekryterades doktorander Maria Kallberg och Proscovia Svärd. Maria Kallberg avslutade i december 2013 sin forskarutbildning inom GoInfo med avhandlingen ’The Emperor’s New Clothes’ - Recordkeeping in a New Context3, och samtidigt vinnare av Bureanska priset vid Mittuniversitetet. 2009 doktorerade Anneli Sundqvist med avhandlingen Search Processes, User Behaviour and Archival Representational Systems4.När detta skrivs är totalt tre doktorander aktiva vid avdelningen. Inom GoInfo har Ann-Sofie Klareld varit aktiv som doktorand. Ämnet arkiv- och informationsvetenskap har växt och mognat sedan starten 1988-1989. Utbildningen på grund- och masternivå har utökats med utbildning på forskarnivå och ett forskningsprogram.Sidorna som följer innehåller summeringar och reflektioner från GoInfo. Först ut är projektledaren Göran Samuelsson, som inleder med en övergripande beskrivning. Kapitlen som följer speglar GoInfos delprojekt och forskningsresultat. Ann-Sofie Klareld har skrivit om Arkivets roll inom e-förvaltningen. Sedan får vi insikter från Ann-Sofie Klareld och Annalena Olsson, (Riksarkivet i Härnösand) om Arkivmyndighetens roll i samarbets- och utvecklingsprojekt, utifrån Riksarkivets deltagande i flera projekt, inte minst e-ARD5, sponsrat av e-Delegationen. Karen Anderson och Göran Samuelsson presenterar i kapitlet Omvärldsanalys och teoretiska utgångspunkter de influenser som påverkat vår forskning, som bland annat haft en bas i den modell för informationsförsörjning som utvecklats av Göran Samuelsson. Kapitlet innehåller även några preliminära tankar om hur vi kan använda modellen i anslutning till de mer teoretiska modeller som används inom arkivvetenskap och praktik som; livscykelmodellen, Records Continuum modellen och OAIS-modellen. I kapitlet Myndighetsnätverket och GoInfo, rapporterar Ann-Sofie Klareld om hennes aktionsforskning och utmaningen att balansera rollen som forskare med förväntningar på verksamhetsutveckling. De följande tre kapitlen presentera mer konkreta forskning- och utvecklings ansatser i den kommunala miljön med ett stort fokus på GoInfos samverkans partner Härnösands kommun. Göran Samuelsson och Stefan Berggren ger ett Förslag till modell för strategiarbete för god informationsförvaltning, med användning av några av standarderna kring verksamhetsinformation bland annat ISO/SS 30300 och Riksarkivets RA FS 2009:16.Maria Kallberg skriver om Centraliserad diariefunktion, ett projekt som hon initierade i sin roll som kommunarkivarie i Härnösands kommun och sedan fortsatte att utforska som en del av sitt doktorandprojekt. Stefan Berggren, nuvarande kommunarkivarie i Härnösands kommun, och Göran Samuelsson beskriver sedan arbetet med hantera kommunens lönedata och hur man integrerar den nuvarande digitala hanteringen med äldre pappersbaserade informationen i kapitlet Lönedatafångst. I detta arbete har man försökt att praktiskt tillämpa de framtagna de förvaltningsgemensamma specifikationer för personalsystem (FGS Personal), som togs fram under e-ARD projektet. I ett avslutande avsnitt skriver Göran Samuelsson om Bevarande av geodata, ett alltmer viktigt område eftersom ’everything happens somewhere’ och att dessa data integreras med alltfler verksamhetssystem.Vår förhoppning är att du som läsarna ska kunna dra nytta av och även hämta kunskap från vår forskning, samt inspireras och utmanas att delta och bidra till den framtida arkiv- och informationsvetenskapliga forskningen.

    Benchmarking Information Management Practice and Competence in Swedish Organizations2011In: Proceedings of the 5th European Conference on Information Management and Evaluation: University of Insubria, Como, Italy. 8-9 September 2011 / [ed] Walter Castelnovo and Elena Ferrari, Reading, UK: Academic Conferences Limited, 2011, p. 28-36Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As organizations transform towards e-service provision and operations sophisticated, organization-wide approaches to information management are required. However, there is reason to believe that few organizations have developed a fully holistic approach to thinking about developing and managing their information assets to ensure their current and future accessibility and usability. There is an increasing awareness of the need to design systems that ensure information is accessible and re-usable, yet vital information often becomes increasingly inaccessible over time, to the disadvantage of business intelligence, business needs, customer service and regulatory requirements. An extensive survey of the state of the art of information management within Swedish organizations was undertaken to gain an understanding of current approaches, what competence is currently available within organizations and what competencies are perceived to be lacking or need development to ensure sustainable management of information as a business asset. This paper presents insights into how well or poorly records managers’ and archivists’ expertise is incorporated into whole- of-organization strategic planning for information management. It was rare to find collaboration between enterprise information architects and IT professionals with the recordkeeping professionals, who have expertise in structuring information and metadata as well as system requirements that contribute to ensuring long-term preservation, which would potentially minimize the proliferation of legacy systems from which records and information are very costly or impossible to migrate or extract. Many archivists considered that it is not their role to participate in wider information management strategies, preferring to focus on the capture of records into an ’e-archive’ without recognizing that information in the archive is a potentially re-usable business asset. This initial research contributes to an understanding of information cultures within organizations. It is intended to be used as a benchmark: follow-up studies are planned at regular intervals in the future to measure change in practice, attitudes and professional alliances to improve information management.

    Total Synthesis of Capsaicin Analogues from Lignin-Derived Compounds by Combined Heterogeneous Metal, Organocatalytic and Enzymatic Cascades in One Pot2014In: Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis, ISSN 1615-4150, E-ISSN 1615-4169, Vol. 356, no 9, p. 2113-2118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The total synthesis of capsaicin analogues was performed in one pot, starting from compounds that can be derived from lignin. Heterogeneous palladium nanoparticles were used to oxidise alcohols to aldehydes, which were further converted to amines by an enzyme cascade system, including an amine transaminase. It was shown that the palladium catalyst and the enzyme cascade system could be successfully combined in the same pot for conversion of alcohols to amines without any purification of intermediates. The intermediate vanillyl-amine, prepared with the enzyme cascade system, could be further converted to capsaicin analogues without any purification using either fatty acids and a lipase, or Schotten-Baumann conditions, in the same pot. An aldol compound (a simple lignin model) could also be used as starting material for the synthesis of capsaicin analogues. Using l-alanine as organocatalyst, vanillin could be obtained by a retro-aldol reaction. This could be combined with the enzyme cascade system to convert the aldol compound to vanillylamine in a one-step one-pot reaction.

    Kunders uppfattningar om servicekvalitet på revisionsbyråers rådgivningstjänster2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Historically, audit firms primarily have offered auditing to their customers, but gradually alsostarted to offer other services, such as advisory. However, audit firms in Sweden have beenable to rely on revenues from audit, since the audit has been statutory for a long time. In 2010the audit was abolished for the smallest limited companies, which led to 53 percent opt out.The audit firms must place great emphasis on understanding how customers perceive otherservices such as advisory and adjust to the customers’ needs in order to offer good servicequality.

    This master thesis aims to examine the customers’ perceptions of service quality in advisorywithin the Swedish audit industry. An underlying purpose is to describe and analyzedifferences in opinion between different groups of customers.

    To achieve this, a number of various service attributes is identified and grouped into servicedimensions, which are able to reflect the concept of service quality. These service dimensionsare attention to customer, trust, facilities, customer service and cost. The sampling frame forthe questionnaire consisted of 2579 active limited companies registered in Sundsvall. Thequestionnaire was sent to 400 companies and of these 112 answered. The analysis was doneby using two methods, one of them is the Kano model that categorizes the service dimensionsand service attributes according to how they should be treated by the audit firm. Thesecategories are taken-for-granted, proportional, delighter and neutral. This model wascomplemented with a weighted measurement.

    The result shows that the service dimensions trust and cost are perceived as taken-for-granted,the service dimension customer service is perceived as proportional and the servicedimensions attention to customer and facilities are perceived as neutrals. The serviceattributes are generally perceived in the same way as the service dimensions they belong to.No service dimensions and service attributes are perceived as delighters. In the weightedmeasurement it is possible to see a pattern, which is the same among service dimensions andservice attributes. The taken-for-grantees are most important, followed by the proportionals,while the neutrals are least important for the perceived service quality. The most importantservice dimensions are trust and cost, while the least important service dimension is facilities.The difference between customers to Big 4 firms and customers to non Big 4 firms is howeverbigger than the difference between customers who buy both advisory services and auditingand customers who only buy advisory services.

    Den svenska välfärden: Privatisering och professionalisering i socialt arbete2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Nyliberala tankar och idéer kan sedan 90-talet anses haft ett tydligt inflytande på den svenska offentliga sektorn vilket lett till en ökad privatisering och marknadsanpassning av välfärdstjänster. Med hjälp av en litteraturöversikt var syftet att undersöka det befintliga kunskapsläget avseende den svenska välfärdens ökade privatisering, samt undersöka kunskapsläget avseende professionalisering inom det sociala arbetet kopplat till denna privatisering. Resultatet är baserat på 11 vetenskapligt granskade artiklar hämtade från databasen ProQUEST Social Sciences. Resultatet visar att nyliberalismen har ett tydligt inflytande över den offentliga sektorn och det sociala arbetets förändringar. Resultatet visar också att det råder en ambivalens kring den ökade privatiseringen, både inom debatten men också hos socialarbetares egna attityder. Slutligen visar resultatet att socialarbetaren ser olika möjligheter till professionalisering i privatiseringen. Denna litteraturöversikt riktar sig i första hand till socionomstudenter, med förhoppningar om att väcka tankar kring den kommande yrkesrollen samt den välfärd vi vill föra fram och representera.MITTUNIVERSITETET Avdelningen

    Air-sea gas transfer in high Arctic fjords2017In: Geophysical Research Letters, ISSN 0094-8276, E-ISSN 1944-8007, Vol. 44, no 5, p. 2519-2526Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Arctic fjords and high-latitude seas, strong surface cooling dominates during a large part of the year, generating water-side convection (w(*w)) and enhanced turbulence in the water. These regions are key areas for the global carbon cycle; thus, a correct description of their air-sea gas exchange is crucial. CO2 data were measured via the eddy covariance technique in marine Arctic conditions and reveal that water-side convection has a major impact on the gas transfer velocity. This is observed even at wind speeds as high as 9ms(-1), where convective motions are generally thought to be suppressed by wind-driven turbulence. The enhanced air-sea transfer of CO2 caused by water-side convection nearly doubled the CO2 uptake; after scaled to open-sea conditions the contribution from w(*w) to the CO2 flux remained as high as 34%. This phenomenon is expected to be highly important for the total carbon uptake in marine Arctic areas.

    Enhanced Air–Sea Exchange of Heat and Carbon Dioxide Over a High Arctic Fjord During Unstable Very-Close-to-Neutral Conditions2019In: Boundary-layer Meteorology, ISSN 0006-8314, E-ISSN 1573-1472, Vol. 170, no 3, p. 471-488Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eddy-covariance measurements made in the marine atmospheric boundary layer above a high Arctic fjord (Adventfjorden, Svalbard) are analyzed. When conditions are unstable, but close to neutral −0.1 < z/L < 0, where z is the height, and L is the Obukhov length, the exchange coefficient for sensible heat CH is significantly enhanced compared with that expected from classical surface-layer theory. Cospectra of the vertical velocity component (w) and temperature (T) reveal that a high-frequency peak develops at f ≈ 1 Hz for z/L > − 0.15. A quadrant analysis reveals that the contribution from downdrafts to the vertical heat flux increases as conditions become close to neutral. These findings are the signature of the evolving unstable very-close-to-neutral (UVCN) regime previously shown to enhance the magnitude of sensible and latent heat fluxes in the marine surface layer over the Baltic Sea. Our data reveal the significance of the UVCN regime for the vertical flux of the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration (C). The cospectrum of w and C clearly shows how the high-frequency peak grows in magnitude for z/L > − 0.15, while the high-frequency peak dominates for z/L > − 0.02. As found for the heat flux, the quadrant analysis of the CO2 flux shows a connection between the additional small-scale turbulence and downdrafts from above. In contrast to the vertical fluxes of sensible and latent heat, which are primarily enhanced by the very different properties of the air from aloft (colder and drier) during UVCN conditions, the increase in the air–sea transfer of CO2 is possibly a result of the additional small-scale turbulence causing an increase in the water-side turbulence. The data indicate an increase in the gas-transfer velocity for CO2 for z/L > − 0.15 but with a large scatter. During the nearly 2 months of continuous measurements (March–April 2013), as much as 36% of all data are associated with the stability range −0.15 < z/L < 0, suggesting that the UVCN regime is of significance in the wintertime Arctic for the air–sea transfer of heat and possibly also CO2.

    Föräldrars upplevelser när deras barn vårdas på intensivvårdsavdelning: - en litteraturstudie2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kritiskt sjuka barn som vårdades på intensivvårdsavdelning väckte svåra känslosamma reaktioner hos föräldrarna. Syftet med denna studie var att belysa föräldrars upplevelse av omvårdnaden av sitt barn på intensivvårdsavdelning. Metoden som användes var litteraturstudie och omfattade 16 vetenskapliga artiklar. Litteratursökningen gjordes med hjälp av MESH-termerna: intensive care, critical care, parent, experience och need via databaserna PUBMED och CINAHL. Resultatet visade att ovissheten, barnets förändrade utseende och smärta hade betydelse för hur föräldrarna upplevde barnets sjukdomstillstånd. Procedurer, miljön och medicinteknisk apparatur var viktiga faktorer för hur föräldrarna upplevde vården på barnintensivvårdsavdelning (BIVA). Föräldrars behov under BIVA-vistelsen var information, närhet och stöd. Föräldrars upplevelser på BIVA, på barnavdelningen och i hemmet fanns beskrivna. I diskussionen togs det upp att föräldrar som såg sitt barn ha ont, tappade sin föräldraroll eller var oroliga för att barnet inte skulle överleva löpte större risk för ohälsa. Med enkel, tydlig information och möjlighet att vara delaktig och nära sitt barn kunde den kritiska situationen upplevas som mindre stressande för föräldrarna.

    Specialistsjuksköterskors upplevelser av omhändertagandet av traumatiserade barn2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The most common reason for children to be seek in-hospital care in Sweden is trauma and every year more than 200000 children is traumatized. Nurses meet these children in their work but the procedures used to care for traumatized adults are not transferable to children. The aim of this study was to illuminate how special educated nurses experience the caring for traumatized children. A qualitative design with one-to-one interviews (n=9) was used to collect data. Content analysis was used to analyze the data. The analysis ended up in four categories;

    the experience of lacking knowledge, the experience of difficulties in the care, the experience of the need of good nursing skills and the experience of differences in the routines in use. The findings show that all the interviewed nurses experience a need to increase their knowledge concerning the care for traumatized children. Increased skills and knowledge in this matter would raise their feelings of being secure in their professional role.

    Triage in the emergency department: A qualitative study of the factors which nurses consider when making decisions2006In: Nursing in Critical Care, ISSN 1362-1017, E-ISSN 1478-5153, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 136-145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Triage, as a concept, is relatively new in Sweden and means 'sorting'. The triage process was developed to grade patients who needed immediate care. Triage is currently important for the emergency treatment system, and nurses are expected to work with it professionally. The aim of this study is to describe how nurses implement triage when patients arrive at the emergency department of a county hospital, situated in a rural area of Sweden, as well as to highlight the factors considered when prioritizing, in connection with nurses' decision-making. The method used was observations of 19 nurses, with minimal disturbance in their triage work, followed by a short tape-recorded interview, during which the nurses were asked to reflect upon their decision of priorities. Qualitative content analysis of data has been used. The results were divided into two areas, internal factors and external factors. The internal factors reflect the nurse skills and personal capacity. The external factors reflect work environment, including high workload and practical arrangements, and should always be perceived and taken into consideration. Using these factors as a basis, the patients' clinical condition, clinical history, various examinations and tests form an assessment, which subsequently results in a prioritization.

    ”Homosexuella och deras familjebildning”: En studie om 15-åringars attityder i en aktuell fråga2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Diskussionen kring homosexuellas lämplighet som föräldrar och deras rätt att bilda familj är nu aktuell i samhällsdebatten. Trots att det idag finns lagstiftning som jämställer homosexuellas och heterosexuellas rättigheter att bilda familj genom exempelvis provrörsbefruktning och adoption finns negativa röster om detta.

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka attityder hos högstadieungdomar i årskurs 9 vid tre skolor, i frågor om homosexuellas rätt att bilda familj och om det kan vara kopplat till attityder till homosexuella generellt. Dessa attityder studerades i förhållande till könstillhörighet och social klass. Målgruppen valdes utifrån att ungdomar i den åldern ifrågasätter föräldrarnas påverkan och skapar sig egna värderingar. En inblick i detta kan lägga fokus på att även vuxna bör reflektera över sina attityder kring dessa frågor då barn och ungdomar i stor utsträckning påverkas av vuxna.

    Uppsatsens primärdata har insamlats genom enkätundersökning i kontaktade skolor under vecka 48, 2007. Undersökningen utfördes med kvantitativ forskningsmetod och elevenkäten bestod av 25 flervalsfrågor med slutna svar. Resultaten visade att elevernas könstillhörighet har betydelse för attityder till homosexuellas rätt att bilda familj. I de undersökta skolorna var flickorna mer accepterande än pojkarna, både till homosexuella generellt och till deras rätt att bli föräldrar. Om detta beror på verkliga skillnader i attityder mellan könen eller om flickorna i högre grad än pojkarna svarar vad som anses som ”politiskt korrekt” är svårt att avgöra. I denna studie konstaterades att könstillhörigheten har betydelse medan elevernas sociala klasstillhörighet inte hade någon påverkan för acceptansen till homosexuella och deras familjebildande.

    Konflikter på fritidshemmet2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka konflikter på fritidshemmet. Vår undersökning har fokuserats på; var konflikterna utspelar sig, vad konflikterna handlar om och hur konflikterna löses. Detta har vi undersökt genom att observera barn på fyra olika fritidshem i två olika kommuner i Sverige. Eftersom vi har valt att göra observationer gör vi en kvalitativ empirisk studie. Utifrån våra observationer har vi uppmärksammat att konflikter kan ske överallt, men de förekommer ofta där pedagogerna inte är närvarande. Under våra observationer på fritidshemmen har vi insett att det råder fler konflikter än vad vi först trodde. Det sker konflikter dagligen, både stora som små och vissa allvarligare än andra. Det finns troligen lika många lösningar som det finns konflikter, därför valde vi att se till helheten och mönstren i vårt sammanställda resultat. Vi kunde se konflikter som löstes av barnen själva, konflikter som löstes med hjälp av pedagoger, konflikter som inte gick att lösa och konflikter som bara löstes.

    Studiehandledning på modersmålet, en rättighet för eleven - men följs lagen?2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Aktuell forskning framhäver modersmålets stora betydelse för att man ska kunna ta till sig kun­skap på ett andraspråk, att kunna utvecklas och uppnå framgång med studierna. I grund­skoleförordningen finns att läsa vilka rättigheter som elever med annat modersmål än svenska har i grundskolan. Bland dessa rättigheter finns undervisning i sitt moders­mål samt studiehandledning sitt modersmål.

     

    Det övergripande syftet med denna undersökning var att ta reda på hur skolorna följer det som sägs i grundskoleförordningen när det gäller elevers rätt till modersmåls­undervisningen och rätten att få studiehandling på sitt modersmål om man är i behov av det. För att nå vårt syfte och få lite bredd har vi intervjuat 2 rektorer, 2 lärare samt 1 modersmålslärare i olika delar av Sverige.

     

    Vad som menas med studiehandledning för elever med annat modersmål är ett begrepp som tolkas på olika sätt, eftersom det saknas tydliga riktlinjer hur denna skall genom­föras. En ofta förekommande missuppfattning är att studiehandledning rör sig om ett färdig­utformat dokument samt muntlig handledning i ett begränsat omfång. På grund av bristande kunskap eller information om vad studiehandledning innebär fick vi svaret nej på frågan om skolan kunde ge sina elever med annat modersmål än svenska detta. Av informanternas svar kan utläsas att ett flertal av dessa arbetar med något som kan ses som studie­handledning, dock inte i full utsträckning.

    Journalistiken förändras: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys av hur mycket textreklam som finns i tre svenska lokaltidningar2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Problem definition and purpose: The media industry is a sphere faced with constant challenges. Technological inventions and economy are changing the rules of how and what media reports. To be able to stay current and make profit the newspapers have to adapt new thinking and evolve. In Sweden the journalistic union have stated that the line between editorial material and advertisement has became thinner. The purpose of this study is therefore to examine the state of three local newspapers today and the ten years back. It will examine if the occurence of what can be define as advetorial news – articles made by the newspapers own reporters but which serve and obvious profit for a second part – has increased or decreased. Method and material: To find an answer to the purpose of this thesis a quantitative content analysis have been done on a total of 1005 local news articles from three Swedish local newspapers in 2005 and 2015. Main result: The result of the content analysis shows that news defined as advetorial occur more frequently in two of the three studied news papers 2015 compared to 2005, while news defined as advetorial decreased in one of the news papers. The result also show that the total number of local news articles has decreased from 2005 to 2015.

    Förskolans pedagogiska miljö: En intervjustudie om hur några pedagoger anser sig arrangera materialet i drama, bild och musik2009Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    Denna studie syftar till att beskriva hur pedagoger arrangerar förskolans pedagogiska miljö och det är vårt intresse för området som legat till grund för undersökningen. Utifrån en sociokulturell forskningsansats har sju pedagogers upplevelser studerats ifråga om hur de arrangerar materialet i förskolan. Vi har använt oss av den kvalitativa forskningsprocessen med semistrukturerade intervjuer som datainsamlingskälla. Under vår utbildning har vi kommit i kontakt med en mängd litteratur som beskrivit den pedagogiska miljöns betydelse för barns lärande och utveckling. Lärandeprocessen kan ses som komplex, vilket många forskare redan beskrivit, och vi har med vår studie inte för avsikt att förklara den fullt ut. Flera teoretiker har definierat begreppet lärande och vi har huvudsakligen visat Piaget och Vygotskijs tankar om barns lärande. Vår utgångspunkt i undersökningen har varit Vygotskijs tankar och det sociokulturella perspektivet där material och miljö ses som en viktig del av lärandets kontext. Studiens innehåll belyses ur ett lärarperspektiv då det är pedagogernas erfarenheter som beskrivs och vi valde detta perspektiv då vårt intresse ligger i hur pedagoger arrangerar lärandemiljöer. Av resultatet framkom att samtliga pedagoger ansåg den pedagogiska miljön betydelsefull men trots detta arrangeras materialet ofta otillgängligt för barnen i förskolorna. Pedagogernas dilemma är att på en och samma avdelning skapa en lärorik och lockande förskolemiljö, som både utmanar och stimulerar såväl ettåringen som femåringen.

    Föräldrars upplevelse av att leva med ett barn som har missbruks- och beroendeproblem2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Missbruk- och beroendeproblem är idag ett stort problem i samhället. Att vara anhörig till en person med missbruks- och beroendeproblem är inte lätt, detta är en stor grupp samtidigt som den lätt glöms bort. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur föräldrar som har barn med missbruks- och beroendeproblem påverkas av detta samt att beskriva och analysera vad dessa personer anser som stöttande och hjälpande faktorer från samhället eller omgivningen. Denna kvalitativa studie har genomförts med hjälp av fem intervjuer, som bland annat hittas via bekanta och via FMN. Resultatet visar att man påverkas väldigt mycket av att ha ett barn som missbukar. Stödet och hjälpen för dessa föräldrar har sett olika ut, men fyra av de fem som intervjuats har sett ganska negativt på socialtjänstens hjälp och stöd.

    Föräldrars erfarenhet av att leva med ett barn med astma: En litteraturstudie2013Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Introduktion: Barn i ung ålder är beroende av att föräldrarna tar hand om barnets astma. Föräldrar ska skapa en omsorgsfull och trygg omgivning för deras barn. Ett barn med astma involverar oftast hela familjen vilket innebär en förändring. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva föräldrars erfarenheter att leva med ett barn med astma. Metod: I denna litteraturstudie användes 25 artiklar som analyserades och samanställdes av båda författarna. Resultat: Resultatet visade att barnets astma skapade många olika känslor hos föräldrarna, framförallt oro. Föräldrarna hade brist på kunskap och samlade därför information från olika källor. De skapade olika strategier för att lära sig hantera barnets astma. Föräldrarna hade svårt att lämna över ansvaret av sitt barns astma till andra. Föräldrarna kände sig utelämnade av vårdpersonalen i behandlingen av barnet och kände besvikelse över vårdpersonalens bristande stöd till familjen. Diskussion: Sjuksköterskan bör i mötet med föräldrar uppmuntra och stödja föräldrarna så deras självförtroende i vården av deras barn stärks och påminna dem om de resurser de har. Det är viktigt att sjuksköterskan bjuder in föräldrarna i vården, då de har en viktig roll i behandlingen av barnet. Slutsats: Vi skulle vilja se större utbud och utveckling av bra utbildning till föräldrar och barn med astma, samt vilja se fler studier gjorda i Sverige.
