    Does one's sense of coherence change after an acute myocardial infarction?: A two-year longitudinal study in Sweden.2011In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 156-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to assess changes in the sense of coherence of patients who had suffered their first myocardial infarction. Out of 100 patients at the start of the study, these changes were evaluated in 66 men and 18 women aged 36–70 years. Generally, the sense of coherence was found to be stable among the whole group, but there were significant individual variations in its development in some of the participants over the following years. Even the individuals with an initally high sense of coherence could experience a decrease in its level. The changes that were found in the men can be explained by their marital status, level of treatment satisfaction, disease perception/quality of life, physical limitation, and alcohol intake and/or tobacco use at the baseline. An unexpected finding was that the single men with an initially high sense of coherence experienced a decreased level over time. In order to maintain or increase patients' sense of coherence, it is important for nurses to help them identify their risk factors and to provide conditions for individualized cardiac rehabilitation in order to avoid another myocardial infarction.

    Social support as described by foreign-born persons diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus and living in Sweden.2010In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 507-514Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore and describe the meaning of support and its impact on the life situation of foreign-born persons diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus and living in Sweden in relation to gender, age, and the duration of the disease. Mixed methods were used on a purposive sample of 34 foreign-born adults who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Qualitative data were collected by semi-structured interviews and quantitative data were collected by the Norbeck Social Support Questionnaire (NSSQ). The meaning of “support” was described by the participants as medical support, information support, and aiding support to learn to manage diabetes. Support influenced the participants' entire life and their need for it was related to the severity of the diabetes and differences regarding age and gender. The participants scored low on the NSSQ regarding total emotional support, total aid, and total function and 42% had lost an important relationship during the last year. Their marital status had no impact on emotional support but aid was significant. Medical support, with regular follow-up and information, is important in obtaining affirmation and aids in learning to manage diabetes mellitus.

    Maternal expectations of the child health nurse2001In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 139-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of this study was to identify what first-time mothers in Sweden expected of Child Health Nurses. A further aim was to investigate what help and support was received by the new mothers and whether they felt that anything was missing. Twenty new mothers were interviewed according to grounded theory and the data were analyzed by the constant comparative method. It was found that first-time mothers expected Child Health Nurses to have faith in a new mother's own strength and to be accessible, approachable and knowledgeable, providing advice and support. New mothers indicated that they had experienced most of these characteristics, especially accessibility and approachability, but some felt that there were deficiencies (e.g. a lack of continued interest in their own bodies and health, as well as a lack of support when they ceased to breast-feed). The Child Health Service was taken for granted by new mothers. First-time mothers indicated that they appreciated the service, particularly those mothers who did not have a good social network. However, some of the new mothers expressed negative feelings regarding the Child Health Service provided.

    What child health nurses believe mothers with infants expect of them2000In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 83-91Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aims were to identify what the child health nurse believed was expected of her by women who had recently become mothers, primipara and multipara, to investigate which problems the nurse found most difficult to deal with and to analyse why they were difficult. The grounded theory method was employed for conducting interviews with 15 nurses. The data analysis showed that the nurses thought mothers expected care of the infant and the family from the nurse, comprising support, advice and child health assessments. What the nurses found most difficult to deal with were obstacles to interaction with mothers such as motherhood problems, hidden, social and organisational problems. They wanted to have a positive interaction with mothers to be able to fulfil the task of supporting parents and identifying risks to the child's healthy upbringing. This task places great demands on nurses' competence and knowledge about the child and family.

    Having knowledge of metabolic syndrome: Does the meaning and consequences of the risk factors influence the life situation of Swedish adults?2008In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 300-305Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The underlying causes of metabolic syndrome (MS) are uncertain. Knowledge from those who have experience of this syndrome should provide new insight. The aim was to explore the meaning and consequences of MS. Thirteen Swedish adults with MS, aged between 33 and 82 years, were interviewed. The interviews were analyzed using constant comparative analysis, which is the basis of grounded theory. The core category for the meaning and consequences of having the risk factors of MS consisted of the recurrence of behavior. The participants attempted to balance their insight into the causes and consequences by referring to their normal life, lifestyle, and fatalistic approach to life. Attention needs to be paid to the attitudes of the individuals with MS, as well as the known risk factors and their consequences, in order to facilitate a long-term lifestyle change in these individuals.

    Perspectives of Swedish patients on postoperative pain management2008In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 131-136Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aimed to describe the perspectives of surgical patients towards postoperative pain management during their hospital stay. Thirty strategically chosen postoperative inpatients from different surgical wards in a university hospital in Sweden participated. A qualitative, descriptive approach using individual interviews was chosen. These were tape-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed according to a qualitative content analysis. The patients' descriptions of postoperative pain management indicated that pain was a symptom that was always in focus, either because it was constantly present or because pain could appear abruptly during different activities and movements. Although the focus was on pain and an awareness that it should be relieved or avoided, the solutions were often routine, short-term, and involved the regular intake of drugs, plus additional medication if needed for an acute pain episode. From the patients' descriptions of their experience with postoperative pain management, we distinguished three categories: "patients' pain knowledge", "patients' pain management approaches", and "patients' views of health-care professionals". The findings from this study highlight important aspects of nursing care that should receive greater attention in postoperative pain management. The patients' narratives could be a valuable asset in the quality improvement of postoperative pain management as these narratives highlight episodes difficult to elicit in other ways. © 2008 The Authors Journal compilation © 2008 Blackwell Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.

    Development of self-care educational material for patients with heart failure in Japan: a pilot study2012In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 156-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study assessed the need for information regarding heart failure and self-care, developed self-care educational material, and investigated the feasibility of the material. A total of 22 hospitalized heart failure patients (mean age: 63 years) completed a self-administered questionnaire. We found that more than 90% of patients desired information, particularly about heart failure symptoms, time to notify healthcare providers, prognosis, and exercise/physical activity. After examining the eight existing brochures for Japanese heart failure patients, we developed self-care educational material. This was based on heart failure guidelines and on the results of our inquiry regarding information needs. Finally, a pilot study was conducted in nine hospitalized heart failure patients (mean age: 57 years). None of the patients had difficulty reading or understanding the educational material. The self-administrated questionnaire survey revealed that comprehension of the following improved after the educational sessions with the material: heart failure symptoms, medication, weighing, sodium intake, and fluid intake (P less than 0.05). In conclusion, heart failure patients have a great need for information about heart failure. Our pilot study suggests that the material was readable and had a beneficial effect on heart failure comprehension.

    The significance of social support and social networks among newly diagnosed lung cancer patients in Sweden2008In: Nursing and Health Sciences, ISSN 1441-0745, E-ISSN 1442-2018, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 182-187Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purposes of this study were to identify and describe the impact that social support and a social network has for adult people recently diagnosed with lung cancer in Sweden. Ten lung cancer patients participated. The data were collected using qualitative interviews based on an interview guide and were analyzed using constant comparative analysis. This led to a core category, "receiving confirmation as a person", which was grounded via four categories: "good relationships within a social network", "conversation enables support", "confidence in the situation", and "to manage by oneself". These categories were all related to each other. How these categories might have a positive influence on a person and give them the strength to move on were also clarified. The social network identified comprised of a few people who were close to the patient. The knowledge gained from this study can be used when developing care guidelines at different levels for use by health-care professionals. © Journal compilation © 2008 Blackwell Publishing Asia Pty Ltd.
