Abstract [en]

As injuries are the main health threat for young adults (18–29 years) in industrial countries, a better understanding of injury risk is needed for this population. Using the Critical Incident Technique, this study explores how young people experience situations that have the potential to cause physical injury (i.e., near-injury situations). Clearly, understanding how and why near-injury situations arise can be used to develop strategies to help prevent severe injury. Content analysis was used to categorize the characteristics of the experiences into unexpected risk in ordinary tasksduty first, and price for learning. Young adults’ exposures to new or unusual environmental conditions, especially in unexpected risk in ordinary tasks, should be considered when planning injury prevention strategies. A combination of individual, social, and contextual demands and expectations was identified in both work- and sports-related experiences with near-injury situations. The price for learning, which arises from the added risk involved in learning situations, is another condition that was identified and requires further attention. The Critical Incident Technique proved to be a useful method for identifying near-injury situations that might otherwise have been difficult to recall. Young adults’ efforts to display their ability to handle difficult situations at work and in their everyday lives was identified as a major contributor to near-injury situations.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: To explore what work-related dilemmas are experienced by patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA), according to their own descriptions, and to interpret this in terms of participation categories of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Method: In 48 patients with early RA, qualitative interviews were analyzed, followed by linking of concepts to the activity/participation component of the ICF and interpretation of general themes. Results: Work-related dilemmas represented different societal perspectives on work related to acquiring, keeping and terminating a job, self-employment, part-time, full-time and non-remunerative employment. Dilemmas also represented participation priorities in economic self-sufficiency, self-care such as health care, and avoiding social relationships and recreation in favor of work. Leisure time was influenced because efforts of working took energy and time of day-to-day procedures. Embedded actions in work-related dilemmas were carrying out daily routine, mobility including using transportation, self-care, domestic life and social interaction. Conclusion: The general themes societal perspectives, participation priorities and embedded actions, with the included ICF categories that are described in detail according to the experiences of the patients, can support clinical reasoning and research on quantitative relations to disease activity, body functions, ability and contextual factors. Implications for Rehabilitation In early rheumatoid arthritis, keeping a job is complex; patients and practitioners need to know and handle the perspectives of, e.g. employers and social insurance agents. Participation in work is an issue of prioritizing against, e.g. maintaining one's health and social relationships. Rehabilitation practitioners need to analyze what actions are embedded in a work situation.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim was to explore experiences of capacity to work in persons working while depressed and anxious in order to identify the essence of the phenomenon capacity to work. Method: Four focus groups were conducted with 17 participants employed within the regular job market. Illness experiences ranged from symptoms to clinical diagnoses. A phenomenological approach was employed. Results: The phenomenon of capacity to work was distinguished by nine constituents related to task, time, context and social interactions. The phenomenon encompassed a lost familiarity with ones ordinary work performance, the use of a working facade and adoption of new time-consuming work practices. Feelings of exposure in interpersonal encounters, disruption of work place order, lost "refueling and a trade-off of between work capacity and leisure-time activities was also identified. The reduced capacity was pointed out as invisible, this invisibility was considered troublesome. Conclusions: A complex and comprehensive concept emerged, not earlier described in work capacity studies. Rehabilitation processes would benefit from deeper knowledge of the individuals capacity to work in order to make efficient adjustments at work. Results can have particular relevance both in clinical and occupational health practice, as well as in the workplaces, in supporting re-entering workers after sickness absence.

Abstract [en]

As the critical friend concept, peer visit was introduced in our pedagogic course in higher education, in which each course participant was required to perform a peer teaching session visited by one teacher and two classmates;  and additionally paid two visits to others peer teaching sessions as an evaluator.Based on my own experiences, the processes of each other mutually evaluating and being evaluated have provided a great possibility for collectively developing our teaching knowledge. It also enhances self knowledge and confidence through the recognition of others. A regular base in the long run will definitely enhance professional development.

Abstract [en]

Det är med stor glädje som vi nu kan presentera ett första svenskt bidrag till att mer samlat presentera erfarenheter, studier och exempel från PPU-området för socionomutbildning i Sverige. Hela åtta universitet och högskolor är representerade i denna antologi och resultatet är både tänkvärt och inspirerande. Att det finns ett stort intresse och engagemang för dessa frågor är inte att ta miste på. Eftersom detta just var ett första försök att sammanställa bidrag från utbildningarna gavs alla stor frihet att välja vad de ville skriva om. Resultatet blev därmed lika vildvuxet och spretande som man kunde väntat. Men det är verkligen inget problem. Tvärtom! Det visar väl snarare hur komplext området är – det finns mycket att dokumentera och undersöka. Vi börjar här och får se var det tar vägen. Kanske en nästa antologi kan koncentrera sig på en eller ett par viktiga frågor som belyses från flera håll.
