    Att inte leva upp till rollen som kvinna: En litteraturbaserad studie om hur kvinnor som lever med endometrios upplever sin livskvalitet2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Endometriosis is a chronic disease that affects about ten percent of the fertile women in the world and most of them also suffer from severe pain.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to explore how women experience their quality of life while living with endometriosis.

    Method: A literature-based study based on qualitative research to gain a deeper understanding of the experienced phenomenon was used. Eleven articles were included and analysed and reported in three main themes and nine sub-themes.

    Results: The first theme was Life did not go as planned, which describes how women get reduced self-worth by not being able to live up to social norms and to expectations from their partner because of their incapability to accomplish pregnancy. The second theme was called, A life ruled by pain, which describes what it is like for women to live with the pain and how it has a negative impact on various parts of daily life. The third theme was called, to master their disease, and describes women's experiences of being treated with distrust and ignorance from healthcare, which made them seek knowledge on their own.

    Conclusion: Women living with endometriosis risk that the disease affects several areas of life in a negative way, which contributes to reduced well-being and reduced quality of life. Nurses therefore need to have an understanding and knowledge of how they can respond to and support the affected women in a person-centred way to be able to help them reduce their suffering

    Hypertoni: Patienters upplevda möjligheter och hinder för livsstilsförändringar2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Hypertension is a common disease and over half of all deaths in cardiovascular disease are caused by complications of hypertension. The basis of the treatment is non-pharma-cological and includes lifestyle changes such as physical activity and diet change. Only few patients reach the treatment goal and are well treated, therefor it’s important for the health care service to have a greater understanding on how patients experience implementing lifestyle changes in hypertension.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe patient’s experience of implementing lifestyle changes in hypertension.

    Method: A qualitative-based literature study was used. Ten qualitative articles from PubMed, Cinahl and Proquest was analysed by the five-step method described by Friberg (2012).

    Results: Two main themes emerged under the analyse process. The two main themes were: opportunities and barriers, with the sub themes: knowledge, attitude, social, comorbidity, time, society and economy.

    Conclusion: Patients with hypertension experience opportunities and barriers to implement lifestyle changes in hypertension. Patients with good knowledge and a more positive attitude towards their disease had a greater opportunity to implement lifestyle changes in their life. The results also showed that patients had different recourses and assets that affect their possibility to follow and succeed with lifestyle changes. Therefore the nurse should work towards a person-centred care. This provided opportunities for each patient as an individual to obtain knowledge, motivation and good conditions to create and establish self-care.

When accepting the disease, the relatives found it easier to deal with life in general. Nurses need to have the means to respond to these relatives and to know how they experience their situation, to be able to support them in the best possible way.

    Närståendes erfarenheter av att vårda en person med Alzheimers sjukdom2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Alzheimer's disease is the most common dementia disease and affects 60-70 percent of people suffering from a dementia disease. About 100 000 people in Sweden are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Managing and taking care of a person who needs a lot of support and help means that life becomes completely different than before. Support from the surroundings are therefore very important for close relatives caring for a person with Alzheimer's Disease.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to explore closely related persons' experience of caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease.

    Method: The method to create evidence-based nursing based on analysis of qualitative research was used. Eleven articles were obtained through the databases Cinahl and PsycINFO. From the 11 articles three themes and eight sub-themes emerged.

    Results: The results showed that close relatives experienced difficulties communicating with the person in Alzheimer's disease. They felt great fear and concern about the disease and its development. Relatives breached themselves to meet the person's need for care. The close relative felt that caring for Alzheimer's disease caused them to feel isolated. Relatives found strategies that made it easier for them to care for Alzheimer's disease.

    Conclusion: It was stressful to care for a person with Alzheimer's disease and the close relatives were in great need of support. The nurse must be able to meet the close relatives' feelings of anxiety, guilt and shame, especially as a close relative caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease is not always voluntary.

    Attitudes Regarding Participation in a Diabetes Screening Test among an Assyrian Immigrant Population in Sweden2016In: Nursing Research and Practice, ISSN 2090-1429, E-ISSN 2090-1437, article id 1504530Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Immigrants from the Middle East have higher prevalence and incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared with native Swedes. The aim of the study was to describe and understand health beliefs in relation to T2D as well as attitudes regarding participation in a screening process in a local group of Assyrian immigrants living in Sweden. A qualitative and quantitative method was chosen in which 43 individuals participated in a health check-up and 13 agreed to be interviewed. Interviews were conducted, anthropometric measurements and blood tests were collected, and an oral glucose tolerance test was performed. In total, 13 of the 43 participants were diagnosed with impaired glucose metabolism, 4 of these 13 had TD2. The interviewed participants perceived that screening was an opportunity to discover more about their health and to care for themselves and their families. Nevertheless, they were not necessarily committed to taking action as a consequence of the screening. Instead, they professed that their health was not solely in their own hands and that they felt safe that God would provide for them. Assyrians’ background and religion affect their health beliefs and willingness to participate in screening for TD2.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: Sexual assault is a serious matter, the World Health Organization calls the violence against women, a global health problem of epidemic proportions. The nurse has a personal and moral responsibility to address this public health problem in order to try to influence a positive change towards improved health.

    Aim: This literature review aims to describe nurses´experiences in the care of patients exposed to sexual assault.

    Results: The results shows that many aspects affect the nurses´ experiences. Many countries struggled, trying to keep up with an adequate care, especially with regard to forensic care, which is very important aiming to also satisfy the justice aspect for the victims. Political, institutional and organizational structures create the conditions that constitute the nurse´s experience. Most nurses did not have sufficient training nor education to perform forensic care even though most did. Many nurses described difficult emotional demands of working with these victims and asked for better support. Interdisciplinary teamwork proved to be important taking into account the holistic perspective.

    Conclusion: Sustainable improvement work is required to start the work of being able to handle adequate care for patients affected by sexual abuse. Sustainable improvement work that starts from the top with political, institutional and organizational changes which in turn can providea positive healthcare development with the help of the staff's commitment and job satisfaction.

    De svåra samtalen: En studie om sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att vårda suicidala patienter2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Suicide is a worldwide problem that generates both great suffering for the individual and its family as well as a large economic impact for the society. 800 000 people commit suicide each year globally, of whom many have already been in contact with the care system without getting the help they need. The aim of this study was to describe nurses’ experiences of caring for suicidal patients. We conducted a literature study based on analysis of qualitative studies according to Friberg’s five step model. Ten studies, published 2011-2021, were included. When asked about their experiences, nurses empathize the need of patient safety and the importance of forming a close partnership with the patient. They also empathize the emotional impact the caring of these patients put on them. Patient safety for these patients is a matter of both a safe hospital environment and nurses being well educated and aware of suicidal cues. The formation of a partnership is crucial for the nurse’s ability to make a good assessment and is usually facilitated by nurses being open and personal as well as empathic and present in the moment. However, becoming too close to the patient may be emotionally tough if the patient commits suicide. Nurses therefore need support and tools for handling their emotions. Further on, to make a good assessment the nurses also need to be able to tune into the patients verbally unexpressed needs.

    Stress på akutmottagningen: sjuksköterskors erfarenheter2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Stress among ´nurses´ at the emergency department is a common problem. Emergency departments are often overcrowded and the lack of staff is a usual issue. The work pace in the emergency department is often high and dealing with stressful situations is often forgotten.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to explore ´nurses´ experience of occupational stress in the emergency department.

    Method: A literature review has been made of 7 qualitative and 7 quantitative articles. Articles were analyzed by searching for similarities and differences. The analyzed articles were published between 2008-2016.

    Results: The results showed that ´nurses´ showed a high level of occupational stress due to high workload and lack of staff. The results also showed that consequenses of stress were fatigue syndrome and depression. The most effective coping strategy among ´nurses´ were a strong social support, and the use of debriefing.

    Conclusion: To work as a ´nurse´ at the emergency department can be stressful. To be able to deal with stress effectively ´nurses´ need to be educated in coping strategies. Clear guidelines in the emergency department are an effective method in dealing with stress.

    När livet är en berg- och dalbana: En litteraturbaserad studie om att leva med ett barn med diabetes2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Diabetes is one of Sweden's national diseases. Around 7000 children live with type 1 diabetes in Sweden today. The diagnosis requires planning of everyday life and revaluation of routines which places great demands on the family.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe parents and siblings' experiences of living with a child or young adult diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

    Method: The study was designed as a literature-based study to contribute to evidence-based nursing based on analysis of qualitative research to reach a deeper understanding of families' experiences. An analysis of thirteen qualitative articles resulted in four main themes and ten subthemes.

    Results: The results of the study showed that the whole family is affected when a child gets diabetes. That the child was diagnosed was a shock that caused many feelings with both parents and siblings. There was a constant concern for complications in both the long and short term, resulting in a fear to hand over responsibility, causing a huge pressure on parents who could feel isolated.

    Conclusion: The families experienced strong feelings when the child was diagnosed. The families needed support from the healthcare professionals to be able to handle the disease.

    Utveckling av ett nytt yrke inom socialpsykiatrisk vård2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The program in Social Psychiatric Care is a three-year program at the university level leading to a vocational qualification in social psychiatric care and a bachelor's degree in the field of Health Sciences. Until the spring of 2018, six litters have graduated. Students in the social psychiatric care program often have personal interest, previous professional experience from the business areas or inspiration from related friends working in the field of activity. Personal experiences of problems in the fields of activity are also prominent among the students. Students believe that personal experience, willingness and ability is important in order to work within the profession. Characteristics of the students are also an interest and a clear empathetic willingness to work with people and they consider that the profession primarily requires characteristics such as altruism, empathy, social skills and deeper knowledge and understanding in the field. Upon completion of education, students want a career role where they can help other people, feel motivated, or they aim for specific positions or areas of activity. Both managers and alumni from the Social Psychiatric Care program value the broad professional competence that the program leads to. Psychiatric competence is emphasized as particularly valuable by both alumni and managers. This competence means that they also complement the other professions in the activities. Students consider themselves possessed a professional identity that involves introducing psychiatric and custody skills to organizations that previously lacked these perspectives. Something that also brings new approaches to patients, users and clients. Being able to use knowledge from several disciplines are considered to be a strength and competence that are well-needed in environments where people with mental ill health are cared for. The alumni perceive their knowledge as both interdisciplinary and interprofessional.

    Patienters erfarenheter av egenvård i det postoperativa skedet: En litteraturstudie2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Self-care is a healthcare measure that is performed by the patient themselves. Postoperative recovery is described as an energy-consuming process where the goal is to regain the independence that the patient had before the surgery. Previous research shows a positive impact on recovery by involving the patient in postoperative care with the help of self-care measures. The aim of this study was to examine patients' experiences of postoperative self-care. The method that was used is a literature study based on analysis of qualitative research. 10 Qualitative articles were selected to gain a deeper understanding of patients' experiences of performing postoperative self-care. The findings were presented by using three themes; To become an active participant, The challenges of self-care and The contact between nurse and patient. The result highlights the patient's experiences of taking responsibility and becoming independent as well as experiences of feeling insecure and the need for support. The patients also experienced a lack of information to perform self-care and found it difficult to perform self-care when they didn’t know where to turn when complications occurred. In order for self-care to free up resources and develop the quality of health care, the patient's need for continuity needs to be prioritized by assigning a contact nurse to each patient who performs postoperative self-care. In order to reduce the uncertainty that the patients experienced, the nurse needs to focus on self-care education. It is important to plan and adapt the education based on the patient’s individual needs by offering several teaching methods.

    AIL via IPL: Arbetsintegrerat lärande genom införandet av interprofessionellt lärande i sjuksköterskeprogrammet på Högskolan Väst2020In: VILÄR: 3–4 December 2020 University West,Trollhättan. Abstracts / [ed] Kristina Johansson, Trollhättan: Högskolan Väst , 2020, p. 15-16Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kliniskt Lärande Centrum (KLC) på Högskolan Väst, institutionen för Hälsovetenskap präglas av ett personcentrerat, normmedvetet och hållbart synsätt på vårdande och erbjuder studenterna ett tryggt och säkert lärande. Vid KLC finns ett tydligt AIL-fokus när studenterna övar tekniska färdigheter samt mellanmänskliga förmågor, att omsätta sina teoretiska kunskaper till handling, innan de ställs inför autentiska möten med patienter och olika personalkategorier inom vården.

    Samtida hälso- och sjukvård står inför nya utmaningar, som exempelvis ökad ojämlikhet, ökad andel äldre i samhället och ökad risk för pandemier, vilket för med sig komplexa vårdbehov. För att kunna möta dessa utmaningar krävs att högre utbildning utvecklas så att framtida personal inom hälso- och sjukvård förbereds för att samarbeta över professionsgränserna. Förmågan att kunna samverka i team är ett av högskoleförordningens generella mål för blivande sjuksköterskor. Dessutom är samverkan i team en av sex kärnkompetenser som alla professioner i vården måste besitta för att kunna bedriva en god och säker vård. För att studenterna ska uppnå kompetens att i sin kommande yrkesroll kunna samverka i interprofessionella team, bör det redan under grundutbildningen ingå pedagogiska moment i form av Interprofessionellt lärande (IPL), där studenter från olika professioner inom Hälso och sjukvården får möjlighet att lära om, med och av varandra.

    Föreliggande projekt handlar om att implementera interprofessionella läraktiviteter vid sjuksköterskeprogrammet. Härigenom möjliggörs ett arbetsintegrerat lärande mellan Högskolan Väst, Sahlgrenska Akademin, Yrkeshögskolan och omgivande Hälso- och sjukvårdsenheter. Ett pilotprojekt har genomförts i form av en teamsimulering vid KLC där studenter från sjuksköterskeprogrammet, undersköterskeelever och specialistundersköterskestuderande medverkade. Preliminära resultat från en skriftlig utvärdering av pilotprojektet visar att en majoritet av deltagarna är positiva och önskar fler interprofessionella moment. Under våren planeras därför för fler interprofessionella läraktiviteter där läkarstudenter från Sahlgrenska akademin ska involveras i simuleringsövningar tillsammans med sjuksköterskestudenter. Därefter planeras att succesivt införa fler interprofessionella aktiviteter inom sjuksköterskeprogrammet.

    Sjuksköterskans uppfattning av nutritionsansvaret för patienten: En litteraturöversikt2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background Nutrition plays an important role in the lives of all people, both for health and for illness. Malnutrition has a negative impact on the human body, especially in the case of illness, as both mortality and complications increase in this condition. The Nurse has the highest level of nursing responsibility for the patient, where nutrition is an important part. Aim The purpose of this literature review was to describe how nurses perceive their nursing responsibility for the patient’s nutrition on a somatic ward.  Method The research method was a literature review based on articles with both qualitative and quantitative stirring. Articles were analyzed according to Friberg (2012). Four themes submerged from the analysis: lack of knowledge, barriers to nutritional care, nurses’ attitudes, and nursing role.   Results The Nurse generally considered that the nutrition of the patients was within their area of responsibility, however, they felt that they did not have enough knowledge to meet the needs, both in terms of nutrition knowledge and the national assessment tools available. After receiving education in nutrition, the nurse felt safer in this role. Time and staff shortages in combination with competing tasks were considered barriers to effective nutrition care. Attitudes towards nutrition and shortcomings in collaboration between occupational categories were also considered as obstacles. Conclusion More knowledge is needed about nutrition along with a distinct accountability for nurses. Also a better working interdisciplinary between doctors,  nurses and dietitians. Nurses also wanted better meal options and more flexible time for patients to eat.

    Att belysa sjuksköterskans upplevelser av att kommunicera med patienter via tolk: en litteraturbaserad studie2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There have been great waves of immigration in Sweden during the recent years. In many researchers works there have been shown that the language is the most important way to communicate with others specially when they need to contact healthcare. In these cases, nurses need to communicate with the immigrants through an interpreter to be able to provide a good care.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to highlight the nurse´s experiences of communicating with patients through an interpreter.

    Method: The method was a literature-based review on the content of eight articles with qualitative design.

    Results: The results of this study showed two main themes: expectations of the interpreter and the interpreter's place in the care meeting. The result show that nurses experience the interpreter as an asset and that the interpreters' attitude can have an enormous impact on the meeting with patient.

    Conclusion: The usage of interpreters can be difficult however with enough education on how to use an interpreter properly, can nurse structure up the meeting. A nurse must know how to successfully collaborate with the interpreter and that is not something that you simply learn in one day. That is why health-care organisations must give enough education to nurses on how to lead and operate a meeting with the interpreter and patient.

    Patienters erfarenheter av tvångsvård: En litteraturbaserad studie2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Admitting psychiatric patients against their will is a criticized form of care. Decisions stating that a patient needs to be hospitalized under coercion are based on their incapability to voluntarily participate in their care. Former patients reported that coercive care led to lower satisfaction with their care. Although most former patients experienced negative care, there where patients that understood their care. Previous studies stated a need to examine how patients experienced being under coercive care and subjected to coercive measures such as seclusion, mechanical restraint and forced medication.

    Aim: This study aimed to illuminate adult psychiatric inpatients experiences of coercive care.

    Method: A literature-based study based on analysis of ten qualitative scientific studies.

    Results: 3 themes with 10 subthemes emerged from the analysis; interpersonal relationships, lack of influence while under coercive care and good coercion. The results showed that negative experiences of coercion were often linked to the actions of the mental health care staff. The relationship to the staff could contribute to their experiences being negative or positive. Patients also stated that they felt powerless and experienced loss of autonomy during coercive care. Good coercion was experienced when they felt seen and taken seriously.

    Conclusion: Patients expressed both negative and positive experiences of coercion. Patients wished for better adjusted information and opportunities to participate. They also expressed the need for trusting and supportive relationships to the mental health care staff. This could lead to greater understanding for their coercive care.

    Sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av familjecentrerad omvårdnad när ett barn vårdas på sjukhus2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: When a child is cared for in hospital, the child's well-being and ability to influence its own care must be taken into consideration. Children should not be separated from their parents unless the purpose is to protect the child. Children are entitled to a relative's presence and participation throughout the care period. The environment affects the child's experience of health and well-being during hospitalization. The presence of the family is of great importance and creates a well-being that gives the child security, harmony and an inner calm. 

    Aim: The aim of this study was to highlight nurses' experiences of family-centered care when a child is admitted to hospital.

    Method: The method was a literature-based study that contributes to evidence-based care, eight scientific articles with qualitative data were analysed using Friberg's five-step model. The method was used to compile and analyse previous research into a new whole and to use the identified scientific knowledge into practically useful knowledge.

    Results: Three main themes and ten subthemes were identified. The first theme describes the relationship between the nurse and the family. The subthemes were; The importance of the family, Creating a trusting relationship, Involving the family in the child's care, The family may hinder family-centration. The second theme describes the importance of communication. The subthemes were; Need for communicative skills, Nurses' retention of certain information, Cultural barriers. The third theme describes lack of resources preventing family-centration. The subthemes were; Insufficient material and infrastructural resources, Insufficient human resources and Lack of knowledge about family-centering.

    Conclusion: Family's presence is of great importance to the child, that the nurse should be able to involve the family in the child's care and create a trusting relationship with the family. Nurses' approach is meaningful to how the family's participation in the child's care is perceived. The family can be seen as an obstacle or an advantage to the nurse's work. The nurses acknowledge that they need more knowledge about family-centered nursing in its entirety, and how to work with the family.

    Närståendes erfarenheter av stigma kring en familjemedlem med schizofreni: en litteraturbaserad studie2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The relatives of patients with schizophrenia have a big part of the caring for the patient. Schizophrenia is an illness which is highly connected to stigma from other people, usually because of lack of knowledge. Earlier studies have shown that stigma also affects the relatives to the patient and can make the illness from both perspectives worse. Earlier studies are usually based on the patient's experiences but since the relatives have a big part in the care, their experience of stigma is in need to be studied.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to illustrate relatives' experience of stigma around a family member with schizophrenia.

    Method: A literature-based study based on analysis of nine qualitative articles.

    Results: Three themes with six subthemes emerged from the analysis: To feel guilt and shame, To be met differently and To be met by lack of understanding and support. Family members experienced many negative feelings around stigma from the people around them. The stigma was explained as a consequence of lack of knowledge around the illness which expressed itself by being left out, being met in a humiliating way and by a feeling that they had to keep the illness a secret.

    Conclusion: The relatives expressed a lot of negative feelings around stigma from other family members, friends and the community. The stigma led to isolation and the feeling of being left out, humiliated, inferiority, grief and fear. By understanding how stigma impact on the relatives the study could lead to a better understanding and knowledge around their situation.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: When a person needs heart transplantation it means that they are suffering from a serious heart failure, and in order to survive they need to undergo surgery for a new heart from a dead person. A lot of the patients don't know what to expect from the surgery and life after the transplantation but their fear of that will not overshadow the chance they have to take somebody's else's heart and begin to live a new life. The transplantation can be a difficult thing to understand and handle without help. It becomes very important for the nurse to have knowledge of the patients' experiences to adjust an individual care in the future.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to describe patients' experiences of life after heart transplantation.

    Method: A five-step model was used described by Friberg (2012) to contribute to evidence-based nursing with basis in analysis of qualitative research, for the analysis of ten scientific qualitative articles.

    Results: The findings that emerged from the analysis shows that they can be applied to the nursing profession. The findings formed three themes: New life, Existential thoughts, and Spiritual aspects, with subthemes.

    Conclusion: After the heart transplantation there is no guarantee that the patients wellbeing will improve. It is important that nurses have knowledge in this field so they can care for the patients' and help them to regain their physical and mental health.

    Omvårdnad av anhöriga till traumapatienter: en litteraturöversikt2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: During trauma treatment lots of health personal are mobilized under a short timeframe. The focus lies upon the care of the patient which leads to reduced focus on the nursing care for the relatives. The relatives are in a difficult life situation and in a major need for nursing care. Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate the nurses' care for the relatives of trauma patients. Method: This study is a literature review of eleven studies that involves relatives or nurses perceptions of the nursing care provided for the family-members of critically ill trauma patients. The studies were analyzed and categorized into themes and subthemes. Results: A total of three themes emerged. "Communications with the relatives", with subthemes the nurse gives information, nurses' behaviors and accessibility, taking the time to get to know the relatives. "Relatives involvement in care" with the subthemes involving the relatives in care, letting the relatives close to the patient. The last theme was "nurses provide care for the patient" without any subthemes. Conclusion: Information was crucial to the relatives. The nurse had to be calm and accessible to the relatives' needs and when he or she seemed stressed it was considered uncaring for the relatives. The relatives wanted to comfort themselves and the patient by being close to him or her. The subject needs more research especially with focus on what's being done for the relatives of trauma patients.

    Vårdpersonalens och patienters erfarenheter av den terapeutiska relationen: en systematisk litteraturstudie2021Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The relationships that are created between mental staff and patients are assumed to be of central importance, especially in psychiatric nursing. The interaction in this relationship can be a great source of support and promote the individual's recovery. However, the definition of the therapeutic relationship is multifaceted, and thus it also becomes difficult to develop or practice this. It is also not entirely clear how patients and the staff experience the therapeutic relationship. The purpose of the study is to provide an overview of the research on the experiences that patients and mental staff have of the therapeutic relationship in psychiatric nursing. Through a systematic literature study, a compilation of previous research of a total of thirteen articles was conducted. The results analysis generated a total of three themes and nine sub-themes, which shed light on relational factors, the role of the mental staff and environmental factors of importance for the therapeutic relationship. The conclusion is that both patients and mental staff experience good effects of relationships, but at the same time barriers emerge that can be linked to both the mental staff, the patient and the environmental factors. Continued research is important to determine how those barriers can be prevented.

    Hälsa och lidande efter en njurtransplantation: En beskrivning av patienters erfarenheter att leva med en ny njure2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: In Sweden last year 426 patients received a new kidney. As a patient you can be on a waiting list for a kidney transplantation between 1-3 years, sometimes longer. While waiting for a kidney transplantation dialysis is often required. Kidney transplantation is the renal replacement therapy of choice for more than 55 % of people with kidney failure. Despite improvements of quality of life in physical, social and psychological domains many factors influence life in a negative way.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe patients’ experiences after a kidney transplant.

    Method: A literature-study was based on ten qualitative research articles.

    Result: Our analysis of the result emerged in two themes; "Adaption from ill to health with side-effects" and "Difficulties to make friends with uncertainty". Patients experienced a wide range of emotions while trying to adjust to life after transplantation. It is a complex task to establish normality in the shadow of troublesome side-effects and the constant risk of rejection.

    Conclusions: The kidney transplant patient often hovers between health and suffering. It is a big adjustment in life to try to live as a healthy person but along with side-effects and constant threat of graft rejection on the patients’ mind. To learn to cope with the situation and move towards acceptance the patient also needs hope. The nurse must be attentive to what the patient experiences to be able to support the patient in the process of striving towards health.

    Att leva med diabetes typ 2: Strävan efter balans2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Diabetes type 2 is today a rapidly increasing global health problem, often caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices. Changing life after a chronic disease is both time-consuming and burdensome, especially when many felt that the life they had lived before was too valuable to give up.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate experiences of living with diabetes type 2.

    Method: A literature study was produced based on eleven qualitative scientific articles, which were analyzed by Friberg's five step analysis.

    Results: The analysis resulted in two main themes, Imbalance in life and Balance in life with eight sub-themes; The inner battle, Loneliness, Life in denial, Lack of knowledge, The will to fight, The need for support, Finding acceptance in life and The importance of knowledge. These themes described the striving for balance in life when living with diabetes type 2.

    Conclusion: The study showed that persons with type 2 diabetes experienced a mix of feelings which were highly affected by how their lives around them looked like. This meant that even though you might had learned and accepted to live with type 2 diabetes, it did not necessarily meant that life not will take a turnabout. It is important for the nurse to know that life with diabetes are changeable, and that they therefore have a significant role to support the person to find balance in life.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: Nurses meet patients in palliative care in different wards, in homecare and hospices. The role of the nurse is to provide patients and relatives with good care. A holistic care includes psychological, physical, social and spiritual needs.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to highlight experiences of nurses meeting dying patients in palliative care.

    Method: The method to contribute to an evidence-based care based on analysis of qualitative research as described by Friberg (2012) was chosen for the study. Ten scientific articles were analyzed and the result was three categories, with eight sub-categories.

    Results: The three categories were: death leaves nobody untouched, relations in the shadow of death, and needs on the environment when death approaches. Nurses described their reactions and feelings in relation to the care of a patient in the palliative phase, emotions that both concern and strain. The relationships were important in palliative care, both with patients and relatives. Aspects such as environment, colleagues and knowledge were of importance to a nurse in palliative care.

    Conclusion: Experiences to meet dying patients in palliative care were described as demanding, but also a privilege. It was considered important to include and to co-operate with the patients’ relatives. The colleagues were needed to provide a good care for the dying patient. Nurses reach security through continuous development of knowledge, experience and reflections.

    Sjuksköterskans erfarenheter av att vårda patienter med sepsis: En litteraturöversikt2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Sepsis is a condition that can result in death by failure or lack of treatment. Mortality has decreased over the past decade and thus is due to increased awareness and improved management of disease cases. Despite this decline, the death rate is still high and increased knowledge to detect and prevent sepsis in time is needed to reduce the suffering and serious complications.

    Aim: The aim is to illustrate nursing knowledge of the role in caring for patients with sepsis.

    Method: A literature review study based on an analysis of eight quantitative and two qualitative articles of research.

    Results: The result showed that nurses experienced that a lack of knowledge exists, long experience in nurses are valuable and that assessment tools can improve nurses' detection of sepsis. Nurses experienced detection of sepsis as a difficult, defiant and stressful task but it could facilitate trough teamwork.

    Conclusion Combination of knowledge and exertion of assessment tools improve the quality of care and reduce mortality. The result showed that experience and education among nurses are important for improving the competence to early identification of sepsis.

    Patientsäkerhet på en akutmottagning i Namibia: Empirisk studie avseende identitetskontroll, basala hygienrutiner och hantering av perifer venkateter (PVK)2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Patients often suffer from harm and infections when in contact with healthcare. Harm caused by the healthcare imply unnecessary suffering for the patient which the healthcare could have prevented. Being a nurse comes with the responsibility of relieving suffering and preventing harm.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to illuminate the patient safety, focusing on identity check, hygiene routines and management of peripheral venous catheter (PVC), in an emergency ward in Namibia.

    Method: This is an empirical study with a qualitative approach. To gather data, six unstructured observations were carried out. The data was analyzed by using Friberg's five-step-model.

    Results: Two main themes emerged during the analysis; Patient safety work and Non-patient safety work and six sub themes; Use of hand disinfection and single-use gloves, Skillful insertion of PVC and safe management of sharps waste, Lack of identity check, Inadequate use of hand disinfection and single-use gloves, Inadequate approach before and after insertion of PVC and Insufficient conditions in work environment. 

    Conclusion: Hand hygiene was the main problem of patient safety. A work environment where hygiene material is more easily accessible could be a contributing factor to a more patient-safe approach. Identification of patients before insertion of PVC does not appear to be a routine at the emergency ward. Nurses at the emergency ward are skillful at inserting PVC:s, but are failing in other aspects in the procedure.

    Sjuksköterskans upplevelser av att möta barn och deras familjer inom akutsjukvården2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Children are a large patient group in emergency care. It is important that nurses have knowledge about encountering children in the emergency care. The nurse who work primarily at regular emergency departments do usually take care of adult patients. Therefore, the nurses have the most knowledge and competence about these patients. This means that nurses’ may have a lack of capacity when it comes to meeting children and their families in emergency care.

    Aim: The aim of this literature study was to illuminate nurses’ experiences with children andtheir families in emergency care. 

    Method: A method of a five-step model was performed and based on analysis of ten qualitative scientific articles in order to contribute to evidence-based knowledge for nursing care. The analysis resulted in three main themes and seven subthemes. 

    Results: The main themes were: Create a relationship, External factors that affect the care meeting and Knowledge and clinical skills. Nurses experienced insecurity in the meeting with the child and their families. This was based on deficiencies in experience and qualification in pediatric nursing. 

    Conclusion: The nurse needs to be able to conform the meeting based on the child's developmental level and needs. The environment can be perceived by the child as stressful, which can affect the meeting with the nurse and the quality of care. This literature study showed that family-centered care is important. The nurse needs to take both the child and their family into account in order to be able to provide safe care.

    Sjuksköterskors syn på hur de kan stödja närstående till patienter i behov av palliativ vård2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Palliative care treatment is a common phenomenon to many registered nurses. When caring for a patient palliatively, the nurse should also care for the ones closest to the dying patient. Previous studies have shown that nurses are uncertain on how to support these relatives and that some nurses even see them as a burden. The aim of this study was to describe nurses’ views on how they can support the ones closest to the patients that need palliative care. The method used is a literature study, aiming at contributing to evidence based care grounded in analysis of qualitative research. Two electronic databases, Cinahl and Pubmed, were used for searches. Inclusion criteria were: studies should be written in the English language, no older than ten years, qualitative, presenting data in palliative care setting for adult patients only, and written from a registered nurse’s perspective. Eleven studies were included. Four themes emerged on how nurses give support: Facilitate presence, Involve the ones closest to the patient, Care for the ones closest to the patient and Meet informational needs. The conclusion is that the nurse should care for the ones closest to the patient as unique human beings and strive to fulfil individual nursing needs.
