Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att undersöka samband mellan stress, hälsoångest, sjukvårdsbesök samt läkemedelsförbrukning i fängelsemiljö. Respondenterna var 66 män i åldrarna 21 - 68 år med avtjänade straff från en månad till tretton år och nio månader. Studien baserades på självskattningsfrågeformulär vilket mäter stress  (Perceived Stress Scale, PSS ) och hälsoångest (Health Anxiety Inventory, Short Version, SHAI). Dataanalyser kontrollerade samband, predicerbarhet och interaktionseffekter. Resultatet påvisade samband och predicerbarhet mellan stress och hälsoångest samt med hur ofta intagna besöker sjukmottagningen men inget samband med förbrukning av läkemedel. Samband påvisades mellan stress och hög hälsoångest. Coping påvisade samband med låg hälsoångest medan ökade sjukvårdsbesök påvisades ha samband med hög hälsoångest. Slutsatser i studien är att stress fungerar som en möjlig påverkande faktor för såväl hälsoångest som sjukvårdbesök. Andra slutsatser är att när få yttre möjligheter till coping finns riktas fokus mot inre skeenden och kroppssensationer vilket utvecklar ytterligare riskfaktorer för att utveckla stress och hälsoångest.

Abstract [en]

The purpose was to investigate correlations between stress, health anxiety, visits to the health clinic and the use of medications in a correctional facility. The respondents were 66 men between 21 and 68 years of age and had served time from one month to thirteen years and nine month. The study was based on self administered questionnaires, measuring stress (Perceived Stress Scale, PSS) and health anxiety (Health Anxiety Inventory, Short Version SHAI). The analyses controlled for correlations, predictability and threshold effects. The results established correlations and predictability between stress and health anxiety and the frequency of visits to the health clinic. No correlation was established for the use of medications. A correlation was established between stress and the high-anxiety group. Correlations were established between coping and low health anxiety and for the high-rating group correlation was established with visits to the health clinic. Conclusions in the study are that stress acts as a possible factor of influence over the manifestation of health anxiety and visits to the health clinic. A further conclusion is that when few external possibilities of coping exists the focus for inner processes and bodily sensations increases, which further puts them in risk of developing stress and health anxiety.
