    Betydelsen av personlighet och uppfattning om läkemedel för följsamhet till astmamedicinering2010Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En okontrollerad astma kan leda till komplikationer i lungor och luftvägar. Astma kan kontrolleras med läkemedelsbehandling men fullständig astmakontroll uppnås inte alltid. Den vanligaste orsaken till att astmakontrollen inte uppnås är brister i följsamheten till astmamedicinering. Syfte: 1) Att undersöka om personlighetsdrag hos unga vuxna med astma var relaterad till astmakon-troll och hälsorelaterad livskvalitet, samt belysa samband mellan personlighetsdrag och följsamhet till regelbunden a... merstmamedicinering. 2) Att belysa samband mellan personlighetsdrag, uppfattning om läkemedel och följsamhet till astmamedicinering. Material och metod: I Studie I ingick 268 individer (165 kvinnor och 103 män) i åldern 22 år (±1år). I Studie II ingick 35 patienter (25 kvinnor och 10 män) med en medelålder av 52.8 år. I studierna an-vändes frågeformulär för att samla in data om personlighet, följsamhet, astmakontroll, hälsorelaterad livskvalitet och uppfattning om läkemedel. Resultat: Personlighet hade samband med följsamhet till astmamedicinering, uppfattningar om läke-medel, astmakontroll och hälsorelaterad livskvalitet. I Studie I framkom att de som skattade sig mer impulsiva rapporterade lägre följsamhet. Ett negativt samband fanns mellan höga värden i personlig-hetsdraget alexitymi (bristande intresse att förstå och prata om känslor) och följsamhet till astmamedi-cinering hos unga vuxna män. Likaledes framkom ett negativt samband mellan personlighetsdraget antagonism och följsamhet hos unga vuxna män. Hos båda könen var personlighetsdraget negativ af-fektivitet relaterat till dåligt kontrollerad astma. Det indikerades att personlighet kan påverka den men-tala hälsan hos både unga kvinnor och män, medan den fysiska hälsan hade samband med astmakon-troll och fysisk aktivitet. I Studie II framkom att fyra av fem personlighetsdrag hade samband i olika riktningar med uppfattningar om läkemedel. Högt värde i Specefikt-nödvändighetsskalan (uppfattning om nödvändigheten av förskrivna läkemedel) var relaterat till hög grad av följsamhet. Personlighets-draget målmedvetenhet var relaterat till hög följsamhet hos män. Känslomässig instabilitet hade sam-band med lägre värden i följsamhet också hos män. Konklusion: Kunskapen om personlighetens betydelse behöver fördjupas, men uppsatsens resultat indikerar behovet av att identifiera individuella skillnader i personlighet för att öka patienternas följ-samhetsbeteende, stärka deras uppfattning om nödvändigheten av läkemedelsbehandling och minska deras oro för läkemedelsbehandling, vilket har betydelse för både astmakontroll och hälsorelaterad livskvalitet.

    The Influence of personality traits and beliefs about medicines on adherence to asthma treatment2011In: Primary Care Respiratory Journal, ISSN 1471-4418, E-ISSN 1475-1534, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 141-147Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim:To explore the influence of personality traits and beliefs about medicines on adherence to treatment with asthma medication.

    Methods:Respondents were 35 asthmatic adults prescribed controller medication. They answered questionnaires about medication adherence, personality traits, and beliefs about medicines.

    Results:In gender comparisons, the personality traits “Neuroticism” in men and “adherence to medication” were associated with lower adherent behaviour. Associations between personality traits and beliefs in the necessity of medication for controlling the illness were identified. Beliefs about the necessity of medication were positively associated with adherent behaviour in women. In the total sample, a positive “necessity-concern” differential predicted adherent behaviour.

    Conclusion:The results imply that personality and beliefs about medicines may influence how well adults with asthma adhere to treatment with asthma medication.

    Pedagogical challenges in nurse education: a case study focusing on the completion rate in theoretical education at a Swedish University2014In: Vol. 6, no 11, p. 14 s.-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The purpose of this survey was to relate completion rate and results on national clinical final examinations to student’s admission background and examination results for nursing and medical courses.

    Methods: The research data were based on a quantitative case study, with 286 nursing students, using statistical analysis.

    Results: The programme's overall completion rate was 76%, i.e. almost one out of four students did not complete the programme. The higher students' upper secondary/high school grades, the fewer attempts they needed to pass the nursing and medical courses exams (p<0.001). The average examination attempts needed to pass courses in medical science was significantly greater than the number needed to pass courses in nursing science (p<0.001). In a multivariate analysis both upper secondary/high school grades and average examination attempts needed to pass were significant predictors for national clinical final examination score.

    Conclusion: In sum, upper secondary/high school grades and examination attempts needed, especially for courses in medical science, may be regarded as important indicators of achieved knowledge and skills which are tested in the national final examination.

    Beliefs regarding medication and side effects influence treatment adherence in adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder2016In: European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, ISSN 1018-8827, E-ISSN 1435-165X, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Adherence to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment is important because, when untreated, it may have serious consequences with lifelong effects. In the case of adolescents on long-term medicine prescription, more knowledge is needed regarding adherence and factors influencing adherence, which was the purpose of this study. Adolescents (n = 101) on ADHD medication ≥6 months were administrated questionnaires at amonitoring appointment: Medication Adherence Report Scale (MARS), beliefs about medicines (BMQ) and the Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (B-IPQ). Adherencewas high, the mean value was 88% of the maximum MARS score, and correlated positively with the "BMQ necessity-concerns differential" but negatively with "BMQ concerns"and "BMQ-side effects". Adolescents with more belief in the necessity of the medication, less concerns and less experience of side effects tended to be more adherent to medication prescription ("intentional non-adherence"),while "unintentional non-adherence" (forgetfulness) was associated with how much they perceived that their ADHD affected their lives. In a multiple regression model, the variance of MARS total (R2 = 0.21) and “intentional nonadherence” (R2 = 0.24) was explained by the “BMQ-necessity–concern differential” and “BMQ-experienced side effects”. The variance of “unintentional non-adherence” (R2 = 0.12) was explained by the “BMQ-necessity–concern differential” and “B-IPQ-consequences of ADHD”. In conclusion, adolescents on long-term medication reported good adherence, mainly influenced by more beliefs in the necessity versus concerns of the medications, less experienced side effects and more perceived consequences of ADHD. BMQ could be useful to identify risks of low adherence, which should be counteracted by partially gender-specific interventions.
