    The Taxonomy of Everyday Self-management Strategies (TEDSS): A framework derived from the literature and refined using empirical data2019In: Patient Education and Counseling, ISSN 0738-3991, E-ISSN 1873-5134, Vol. 102, no 2, p. 367-375Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To extend our understanding of self-management by using original data and a recent concept analysis to propose a unifying framework for self-management strategies.

    Methods: Longitudinal interview data with 117 people with neurological conditions were used to test a preliminary framework derived from the literature. Statements from the interviews were sorted according to the predefined categories of the preliminary framework to investigate the fit between the framework and the qualitative data. Data on frequencies of strategies complemented the qualitative analysis.

    Results: The Taxonomy of Every Day Self-management Strategies (TEDSS) Framework includes five Goal-oriented Domains (Internal, Social Interaction, Activities, Health Behaviour and Disease Controlling), and two additional Support-oriented Domains (Process and Resource). The Support-oriented Domain strategies (such as information seeking and health navigation) are not, in and of themselves, goal focused. Instead, they underlie and support the Goal-oriented Domain strategies. Together, the seven domains create a comprehensive and unified framework for understanding how people with neurological conditions self-manage all aspects of everyday life.

    Conclusions: The resulting TEDSS Framework provides a taxonomy that has potential to resolve conceptual confusion within the field of self-management science.

    Practice Implications: The TEDSS Framework may help to guide health service delivery and research.

    Living With Type 1 Diabetes As Experienced By Young Adults2019In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 418-425Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. A person’s long-term illness influences many aspects of daily living, for the person affected as well as the family. Living with Type 1 Diabetes in young adulthood raises numerous challenges and concerns. Design. This study has a qualitative design. Methods. Semi-structured interviews were performed with 12 young adults living with Type 1 Diabetes. The interviews were analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results. The analysis revealed contradictory ways of handling the illness, as is illuminated in four categories: Handling the situation, dealing with others, lack motivation and relation to healthcare. Daily life for young adults with Type 1 Diabetes is filled with demanding tasks such as self-administration of insulin, blood glucose tests, and monitoring carb intake to manage blood glucose levels.

    The Importance of Being Acceptable: Psychiatric Staffs’ Talk about Women Patients in Forensic Care2019In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 40, no 2, p. 124-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Currently, women comprise about ten percent of those sentenced to psychiatric forensic clinics in Sweden. Those who are sentenced to forensic care because of offending and violent behaviour have already taken a step away from the usually expected female behaviour. On the other hand, there are many women in forensic care who have not committed crimes, but who instead selfharm. Studies have identified a gender bias in diagnosing and care in psychiatric settings, but there are few studies conducted on women in forensic care. The present study therefore examined how the situation of women patients and female norms are expressed in the staff’s talk about these women during verbal handovers and ward rounds at a forensic clinic in Sweden. The aim was to explore how psychiatric staff, in a context of verbal handovers and ward rounds, talk about women who have been committed to forensic psychiatric care, and what consequences this might have for the care of the patients. The content of speech was examined using audio recordings and a method of analysis that was inspired by thematic analysis. The analysis identified that the staff talked about the women in a way that indicates that they expected the women to follow the rules and take responsibility for their bodies in order to be regarded as acceptable patients.

    Women with fear of childbirth might benefit from having a known midwife during labour2019In: Women and Birth, ISSN 1871-5192, E-ISSN 1878-1799, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 58-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: Having a known midwife at birth is valued by women across the world, however it is unusual for women with fear of childbirth to have access to this model of care. The aim of this study was to describe the prevalence and factors related to having access to a known midwife for women referred to counseling due to childbirth fear. We also wanted to explore if women's levels of childbirth fear changed over time. Methods: A pilot study of 70 women referred to counseling due to fear of birth in 3 Swedish hospitals, and where the counseling midwife, when possible, also assisted during labour and birth. Results: 34% of the women actually had a known midwife during labour and birth. Women who had a known midwife had significantly more counseling visits, they viewed the continuity of care as more important, were more satisfied with the counseling and 29% reported that their fear disappeared. Fear of birth decreased significantly over time for all women irrespective of whether they were cared for in labour by a known midwife or not. Conclusions: Although the women in the present study had limited access to a known midwife, the results indicate that having a known midwife whom the women met on several occasions made them more satisfied with the counseling and had a positive effect on their fear. Building a trustful midwife–woman relationship rather than counseling per se could be the key issue when it comes to fear of birth.

    Hypnotherapy or transcendental meditation versus progressive muscle relaxation exercises in the treatment of children with primary headaches: a multi-centre, pragmatic, randomised clinical study2019In: European Journal of Pediatrics, ISSN 0340-6199, E-ISSN 1432-1076, Vol. 178, no 2, p. 147-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many children suffer from headaches. Since stress may trigger headaches, effective techniques to cope with stress are needed. We investigated the effectiveness of two mind-body techniques, transcendental meditation (TM) or hypnotherapy (HT), and compared them with progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) exercises (active control group). Children (9–18 years) suffering from primary headaches more than two times per month received either TM (N = 42), HT (N = 45) or PMR (N = 44) for 3 months. Primary outcomes were frequency of headaches and ≥ 50% reduction in headaches at 3 and 9 months. Secondary outcomes were adequate relief, pain coping, anxiety and depressive symptoms, somatisation and safety of treatment. Groups were comparable at baseline. Headache frequency was significantly reduced in all groups from 18.9 days per month to 12.5 and 10.5 at respectively 3 and 9 months (p < 0.001), with no significant differences between the groups. Clinically relevant headache reduction (≥ 50%) was observed in 41% and 47% of children at 3 and 9 months respectively, with no significant differences between the groups. No differences were observed in secondary outcome measures between the intervention groups. No adverse events were reported. Conclusion: All three techniques reduced primary headache in children and appeared to be safe. Trial registration: NTR 2955, 28 June 2011 (www.trialregister.nl)

    What is Known:

    • Stress may be an important trigger for both tension type headache and migraine in children.

    • Good data are lacking on the effect of transcendental meditation, hypnotherapy or progressive muscle relaxation as possible stress-reducing therapies in children with primary headaches.

    What is New:

    • Three non-pharmacological techniques, i.e., transcendental meditation, hypnotherapy and progressive muscle relaxation exercises, all result in a clinically significant reduction of headaches and use of pain medication.

    • No large differences between the three techniques were found, suggesting that children can choose either one of the three techniques based on personal preferences.

    The structural and convergent validity of three commonly used measures of self-management in persons with neurological conditions2019In: Quality of Life Research, ISSN 0962-9343, E-ISSN 1573-2649, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 545-556Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Self-management ability is commonly assessed in chronic disease research and clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to assess the structural and convergent validity of three commonly used self-management outcome measures in a sample of persons with neurological conditions.

    Methods

    We used data from a Canadian survey of persons with neurological conditions, which included three commonly used self-management measures: the Partners in Health Scale (PIH), the Patient Activation Measure (PAM), and the Self-Efficacy for Managing a Chronic Disease Scale (SEMCD). Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess the structural and convergent validity of the three measures.

    Results

    When treated as single-factor constructs, none of the measurement models provided a good fit to the data. A four-domain version of the PIH was the best fitting model. Confirmatory factor analysis suggests that the three tools measure different, but correlated constructs.

    Conclusions

    While the PAM, PIH and SEMCD scales are all used as measures of patient self-management, our study indicates that they measure different, but correlated latent variables. None, when treated as single, uni-dimensional construct, provides an acceptable fit to our data. This is probably because self-management is multi-dimensional, as is consistently shown by qualitative evidence. While these measures may provide reliable summative measures, multi-dimensional scales are needed for clinical use and more detailed research on self-management.

    Analyzing variations in changes over time: development of the Pattern-Oriented Longitudinal Analysis approach2019In: Nursing Inquiry, ISSN 1320-7881, E-ISSN 1440-1800, article id e12288Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Longitudinal qualitative research in nursing is rare but becoming more common. Data collection and analysis over time provide some intriguing possibilities to better understand processes, development, and change in illness experience, healthcare organizations, and self-management. This paper aims to present a process for analyzing qualitative longitudinal data material, namely the Pattern-Oriented Longitudinal Analysis approach (POLA). We developed this approach after synthesizing experiences from two longitudinal qualitative projects and comparing our procedures and reflections with the relevant literature. Using the POLA approach, researchers can describe complexity and variation in changes over time. During the analysis process, emphasis is put on visualizing and identifying change at both an individual and a group level. Ontological and epistemological assumptions for the approach are also described. The benefit of this approach is the possibility to describe complexity and diversity in processes over time, which is important for the development of nursing knowledge. The analysis approach can be further used and developed by researchers seeking to understand variance or contextual features in processes and changes over time.

    Women's experience of midwife-led counselling and its influence on childbirth fear: A qualitative study2019In: Women and Birth, ISSN 1871-5192, E-ISSN 1878-1799, Vol. 32, no 1, p. e88-e94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Women with childbirth fear have been offered counseling by experienced midwives in Sweden for decades without evidence for its effectiveness, in terms of decrease in childbirth fear. Women are usually satisfied with the counselling. However, there is a lack of qualitative data regarding women's views about counselling for childbirth fear. Aim: To explore women's experiences of midwife-led counselling for childbirth fear. Method: A qualitative interview study using thematic analysis. Twenty-seven women assessed for childbirth fear who had received counselling during pregnancy at three different hospitals in Sweden were interviewed by telephone one to two years after birth. Findings: The overarching theme ‘Midwife-led counselling brought positive feelings and improved confidence in birth’ was identified. This consisted of four themes describing ‘the importance of the midwife’ and ‘a mutual and strengthening dialogue’ during pregnancy. ‘Coping strategies and support enabled a positive birth’ represent women's experiences during birth and ‘being prepared for a future birth’ were the women's thoughts of a future birth. Conclusions: In this qualitative study, women reported that midwife-led counselling improved their confidence for birth through information and knowledge. The women experienced a greater sense of calm and preparedness, which increased the tolerance for the uncertainty related to the birthing process. This, in turn, positively affected the birth experience. Combined with a feeling of safety, which was linked to the professional support during birth, the women felt empowered. The positive birth experience strengthened the self-confidence for a future birth and the childbirth fear was described as reduced or manageable.

    Sickness Presenteeism among the Self-employed and Employed in Northwestern Europe—The Importance of Time Demands2019In: SH@W Safety and Health at Work, ISSN 2093-7911, E-ISSN 2093-7997Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: European policymakers encourage individuals to become self-employed because it is a way to promote innovation and job creation. It can be assumed that health and well-being among the self-employed and managers in small-scale enterprises are particularly crucial in this enterprise group because the smallness of the enterprise makes its members vulnerable. Earlier studies have indicated that the self-employed have a high working pace and work for long and irregular hours, indicating that it can be difficult to stay at home because of sickness. The purpose of this study is to investigate the occurrence of sickness presenteeism among the self-employed in relation to the organizationally employed and to analyze whether any differences can be explained by higher work demands among the self-employed. Methods: The study is based on the fifth European survey on working conditions (2010) and includes the northwestern European countries in the survey. The questions cover a wide range of topics designed to meet the European Union's political needs. The main variables in this study are sickness presenteeism and several indicators of time demands. Results: The results show that the self-employed report a higher level of sickness presenteeism than the employed: 52.4 versus 43.6%. All indicators of time demands are significantly related to the risk for sickness presenteeism, also when controlling for background characteristics. Conclusion: The results confirm that the level of sickness presenteeism is higher among the self-employed and that high time demands are a major explanation to this.

    Nurses’ experiences of prehospital care encounters with children in pain2019In: International Emergency Nursing, ISSN 1755-599X, E-ISSN 1878-013X, Vol. 43, p. 23-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Pain relief in children is a complex issue, partly an ethical dilemma and due to a lack of nursing competence. There are few studies regarding prehospital care encounters with children in pain. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe nurses’ experiences in prehospital care encounters with children in pain and the specific related challenges. Method: This study has a qualitative design. Eighteen Swedish nurses participated in three focus group interviews analysed using qualitative content analysis. Findings: The findings consist of a theme, “A challenge to shift focus and adjust to the child”, and three categories describing prehospital care encounters with children in pain: “Being receptive and focusing on care,” “Developing a trusting relationship,” and “Providing professional nursing care.” Caring for children in pain was stressful for the nurses. The nurses described how they had to shift focus and used different methods to build trust, such as playfulness, making eye contact, attracting curiosity, and using the parents to create trust. The also had to adjust to the child regarding dosages and materials. Conclusion: Nurses has to be practically, mentally, and theoretically prepared to care for children with prehospital pain. It is essential to evaluate the administration of adequate pain relief to children, and more evidence-based knowledge is necessary concerning the different modes of administering pain-relieving drugs to prehospital children.

    Abstract [en]

    This study explored the existential meaning of being a participant in shareholding networks for the care of older people in Thailand. Ten older persons were interviewed about their experiences of participating in the networks. A reflective lifeworld perspective based on phenomenological philosophy was used. The findings show that participating in shareholding network activities entails an always-present existence of aging intertwined with life. Its constituents further describe the essential meaning of the phenomenon: “experience of improved self-management”, “feeling of increased self-esteem”, and “bridging a gap in the care of older people”. Participation in shareholding network activities means keeping contact with oneself and being able to have a life that corresponds to how one perceives oneself to be and must therefore be understood from a holistic perspective. The present study recommends that older persons’ need for support include places where safe and profound reflection on existential issues.
