Abstract [en]

Purpose – Sexual health is insufficiently addressed in health care and higher education, which can lead tolower quality of life and negative health outcomes. To improve the situation, it is necessary to address both theneeds of patients and professionals and collaboratively engage in finding sustainable solutions. The purpose ofthis paper is to explore the feasibility and value of large-scale digital coproduction in higher education.

Design/methodology/approach – A study of a project that developed seven interprofessional, digital master-level courses covering different topics related to sexual health. The project was performed through digital coproduction in higher education, with over 100 persons with various backgrounds working together online in designing content and novel digital learning activities.

Findings – Large-scale digital coproduction in higher education is feasible and valuable, but the process demands sensitive leadership, understanding of coproduction processes and willingness to learn from each other. To meet the demands from practice it is important to understand the complexity, ever-changing and unpredictable working life changes which, in turn, demands engagement in continuous learning, training activities and the need for formal education.

Originality/value – The study provides learning of the feasibility of the value of large-scale digital coproduction in higher education, which is a novel way of working in higher education.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Occupational Health Service (OHS) is a service that should support employers and employees with theirwork environment. Previous research indicates the need for deeper knowledge about the effect of workplace interventionswith a focus on planning, organizing and designing the workplace to improve work conditions in hospital settings.

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate the outcomes, workplace interventions and intervention strategies in hospital settings.

METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted. CINAHL, MEDLINE, PsycInfo, Scopus, and Web of ScienceCore Collection were searched in September 2021. The Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool was used to evaluate the quality ofthe included studies. Study results are presented through a narrative synthesis. A protocol for this study was registered onthe Open Science Framework.

RESULTS: Twenty-six studies, published between 2010 and 2021, were included. These included randomized controlledtrials (RCTs), non-RCTs, and mixed methods reports with moderate to good quality. The results support the use of workplaceinterventions to improve work conditions, health, and well-being in hospital settings. Combinations of different interventions,tailored to the specific organization, were used. Important intervention strategies commonly used in the start-up, evaluation,and intervention of successful workplace interventions, were identified. Using a pragmatist complexity approach in workplaceinterventions can improve outcomes by providing clear intervention strategies and combinations of tailored interventions,related to context specific problems.

CONCLUSION: OHS support in workplace interventions with clear intervention strategies will contribute to improve workconditions, health and well-being in hospital settings.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Expressing a desire for surgery already before participating in first-line osteoarthritis (OA) interventions (patient education and exercise therapy) has in previous research shown to contribute to poorer outcomes from the interventions, yet we lack knowledge about patients’ views of health care and self-management of osteoarthritis (OA). This study aimed to explore and describe patients’ perspective of health care and self-management of OA among those expressing a desire for surgery before participating in first-line OA intervention.

Abstract [en]

Background

Sense of Coherence (SOC) relates to an individual’s overall life orientation, and stronger SOC is associated with better health, quality of life, and coping strategies. When our research group used the SOC-13 questionnaire for the first time in Nepal, we identified difficulties in response patterns. The findings necessitated further evaluation of the Nepali version of the SOC-13 questionnaire.

Objective

To qualitatively evaluate the SOC-13 questionnaire in Nepali for cross-cultural adaptation.MethodNineteen nurses were interviewed. We used the methodological approach of “think aloud” to obtain a deeper understanding of the interferences of the scales. Transcribed materials were analyzed using a deductive approach through qualitative content analysis. The original translated version of the SOC-13 questionnaire in Nepali was modified by replacing words that were easier to understand.

Result

Participants found the questionnaire content general and non-specific but easy to complete. The nurses experienced that the meanings and sentences in some of the items and response alternatives were difficult to understand. However, the overall comprehensiveness of most items and response alternatives was perceived as good. Nurses’ interpretation of the SOC-items in the translated version of the SOC-13 questionnaire in Nepali matched the original English version. Items that were experienced as difficult in the Nepali language were modified to increase their comprehensiveness. Modified items and response alternatives had the same content as before, but some words and meanings were substituted with easier language.

Conclusion

The current revised version of SOC-13 in Nepali is valid and useful to explore individuals’ overall life orientation and their abilities to deal and cope with various life events in the Nepalese context.

Abstract [no]

Studien utforsker uttrykt seksualitet hos personer med utviklingshemming slik ansatte erfarer det fra miljøterapeutisk arbeid. Totalt 20 miljøterapeuter i et kommunalt bofellesskap deltok i refleksjoner individuelt og senere i grupper. Refleksjonene gjennomgikk en totrinnsanalyse basert på kvalitativ innholdsanalyse og resulterte i tre definerte temaer: 1) Når seksuelle uttrykk oppleves krenkende. 2) Det å komme til kort profesjonelt. 3) Arbeid med seksuelle temaer. Studien viser at miljøterapeuter opplevde manglende handlingskompetanse i møte med uttrykt seksualitet. Dette ble ytterligere utfordret av et fraværende system for veiledning, drøfting og kompetanseheving omkring seksuelle temaer. Systematikken som forventes i øvrig miljøterapeutisk arbeid, fantes ikke i arbeidet med seksualitet. Nødvendig tilrettelegging for å hjelpe beboere med å forstå kropp, behov eller utforskning synes å være vanskelig å få på plass. Samarbeid med kollegaer, beboere og deres nettverk utfordres av usikkerhet og manglende tydelighet. Dette handler om fag og etikk, men også om å ivareta beboernes seksuelle rettigheter.

Abstract [en]

This study explores expressed sexuality in people with intellectual disabilities and is based on staff experiences in environmental therapeutic work. A total of 20 environmental therapists working in a municipal housing scheme gave their reflections individually, and later in groups. The reflections underwent a two-stage analysis based on qualitative content analysis and resulted in three defined themes: 1) When expressions of sexuality are perceived as offensive2) Feeling inadequate professionally3) Working with sexual topics. The systematicity that is expected in general environmental therapeutic work was not found in work with sexuality. The support that is essential to help residents understand the body, needs or exploration seems to be difficult to put in place. Collaboration with colleagues, residents and their network is put to challenge by uncertainty and insufficient clarity. This concerns not only professionalism and ethics, but also the safeguarding of residents’ sexual rights.

Abstract [en]

Academic reading is a challenge for many students and there is therefore a need to explore opportunities to support students in reading scientific articles in English, and to understand the new knowledge in a Norwegian context and enable them to use the knowledge in their future professional practice. This article shows how a digital tool provides new opportunities for asynchronous interaction between students about subject content and syllabus, and how this can be used to promote academic reading, professional learning and at the same time increase student interaction.

Abstract [no]

Akademisk lesing er en utfordring for mange studenter. Det er derfor behov for å se på hvilke muligheter som finnes for å støtte studentene i å lese vitenskapelige artikler på engelsk, forstå den nye kunnskapen i en norsk kontekst, og sette dem i stand til å benytte kunnskapen i sin fremtidige profesjonelle praksis. Denne artikkelen belyser hvordan et digitalt verktøy gir nye muligheter for asynkron samhandling mellom studenter om faginnhold og pensum, og hvordan dette kan brukes for å fremme akademisk lesing, faglig læring og samtidig øke studentinteraksjon.

Abstract [no]

Forebygging av vold og overgrep er viktig fordi konsekvensene av å oppleve slike hendelser kan gi alvorlige helseproblemer. En viktig del av dette arbeidet er å lede endringsprosesser for å gi personer med utviklingshemming tilgang på effektive forebyggingsprogrammer. I denne kvalitative studien med mellomledere i ulike kommuner belyser vi deres erfaringer med å tilby og implementere VIP, et voldsforebyggende program for personer med utviklingshemming. Vi har analysert med en stegvis-deduktiv induktiv metode, og resultatene viser at ledelsesforankring er viktig for å kunne tilby og implementere VIP-kurset. Det er også viktig å ha et godt fagmiljø hvor det legges til rette for opplæring og utvikling, samtidig som man tilrettelegger kurset både innholdsmessig, praktisk og organisatorisk på en måte som ivaretar individuelle behov og likeverd.

Abstract [no]

Hensikten med denne artikkelen er å tilføre erfaring om samskaping fra et prosjekt i høyere utdanning, hvor målet var utvikling av digitale emner innen fagområdet seksuell helse. Observasjoner av prosjektmøter ble analysert i en tematisk analyse. Kjennetegn ved prosjektet som ledelsesforankret fremkom ved at det ble stilt forventninger til deltakere om at de skulle jobbe for felles mål i prosjektet. Resultatene viste at samskapingsprosessen var kjennetegnet av kompetanse-og informasjonsdeling mellom deltakerne. Prosessen var i tillegg preget av posisjonering, i den forstand at ulike faglige forutsetninger blant deltakerne gav grunnlag for gjentakende diskusjoner om forståelse og anvendelse av ulike teoretiske perspektiver og begreper. Faglige særinteresser og erfaringer påvirket ledelse og distribusjon av makt i samskaping både i prosjektledergruppemøtene og i referansegruppemøtene. Videre belyser resultater behov for åpen kommunikasjon, felles mål og klare forventninger til deltakelse. Resultatene tyder på at samskaping i utvikling av høyere utdanning kan være krevende for både ledelse og deltakere, men at det samtidig muligheter til å ivareta kunnskapsbasert kvalitetsutvikling i lys av behov i praksisfeltet

Abstract [en]

Background

Heart failure is a chronic heart condition. Persons with heart failure often have limited physical capabil‑ity, cognitive impairments, and low health literacy. These challenges can be barriers to healthcare service co-design with family members and professionals. Experience-Based Co-Design is a participatory healthcare quality improve‑ment approach drawing on patients’, family members’ and professionals’ experiences to improve healthcare. The over‑all aim of this study was to use Experience-Based Co-Design to identify experiences of heart failure and its care in a Swedish cardiac care setting, and to understand how these experiences can translate into heart failure care improve‑ments for persons with heart failure and their families.

Methods

A convenience sample of 17 persons with heart failure and four family members participated in this single case study as a part of an improvement initiative within cardiac care. In line with Experienced-Based Co-Design meth‑odology, feld notes from observations of healthcare consultations, individual interviews and meeting minutes from stakeholders’ feedback events, were used to gather participants’ experiences of heart failure and its care. Refexive thematic analysis was used to develop themes from data.

Results

Twelve service touchpoints, organized within fve overarching themes emerged. The themes told a story about persons with heart failure and family members struggling in everyday life due to a poor quality of life, lack of support networks, and difculties understanding and applying information about heart failure and its care. To be recognized by professionals was reported to be a key to good quality care. Opportunities to be involved in healthcare varied, Further, participants’ experiences translated into proposed changes to heart failure care such as improved information about heart failure, continuity of care, improved relations, and communication, and being invited to be involved in healthcare.

Conclusions

Our study fndings ofer knowledge about experiences of life with heart failure and its care, trans‑lated into heart failure service touchpoints. Further research is warranted to explore how these touchpoints can be addressed to improve life and care for persons with heart failure and other chronic conditions
