    Outcome after cup hemiarthroplasty in the rheumatoid shoulder: A retrospective evaluation of 39 patients followed for 2-6 years2000In: Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6470, Vol. 71, no 2, p. 180-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    33 rheumatoid patients, treated with hemispherical cup resurfacing hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder without medullary fixation (6 bilaterally), were reviewed after mean 4.4 (2-6) years. The median Constant score was 30 (15-79), mean proximal migration of the humerus 5.5 (SD 5.2) mm and mean glenoid erosion 2.6 (SD 1.7) mm. Proximal migration and glenoid erosion did not correlate with shoulder function or pain. Radiographic signs of loosening (changes in cup inclination combined with changes in cup distance above the greater tuberosity) occurred in one quarter of the shoulders. At follow-up, 26 patients were satisfied with the procedure, despite poor shoulder function and radiographic deterioration.

    A provably stable, non-iterative domain decomposition technique for the advection-diffusion equation2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We describe an efficient, non-iterative domain decomposition approach for the onedimensional advection–diffusion equation based on the Summation-by-Parts technique in both time and space. A fully discrete multidomain analogue of the continuous equation is formulated and a linear system consisting only of the solution components involved in the coupling between the subdomain interfaces is isolated. Once the coupling system is solved, the full solution is found by computing linear combinations of known vectors, weighted by the coupling components. Both stability and invertibility of the discrete scheme is proved using standard Summation-by-Parts procedures.

    In a numerical study we show that perfunctory implementations of monodomain Summation-by-Parts based time integration can be improved upon significantly. Using our proposed method we are able to reduce execution time and memory footprint by up to 80% and 95% respectively. Similar improvements in execution time is shown also when compared against explicit Runge–Kutta time integration.

    A Stable Domain Decomposition Technique for Advection–Diffusion Problems2018In: Journal of Scientific Computing, ISSN 0885-7474, E-ISSN 1573-7691, Vol. 77, no 2, p. 755-774Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of implicit methods for numerical time integration typically generates very large systems of equations, often too large to fit in memory. To address this it is necessary to investigate ways to reduce the sizes of the involved linear systems. We describe a domain decomposition approach for the advection–diffusion equation, based on the Summation-by-Parts technique in both time and space. The domain is partitioned into non-overlapping subdomains. A linear system consisting only of interface components is isolated by solving independent subdomain-sized problems. The full solution is then computed in terms of the interface components. The Summation-by-Parts technique provides a solid theoretical framework in which we can mimic the continuous energy method, allowing us to prove both stability and invertibility of the scheme. In a numerical study we show that single-domain implementations of Summation-by-Parts based time integration can be improved upon significantly. Using our proposed method we are able to compute solutions for grid resolutions that cannot be handled efficiently using a single-domain formulation. An order of magnitude speed-up is observed, both compared to a single-domain formulation and to explicit Runge–Kutta time integration.

    A stable, high order accurate and efficient hybrid method for flow calculations in complex geometries2018In: 2018 AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting, AIAA SciTech Forum, (AIAA 2018-1096), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2018, no 210059, p. 1-9Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The suitability of a discretization method is highly dependent on the shape of the domain. Finite difference schemes are typically efficient, but struggle with complex geometry, while finite element methods are expensive but well suited for complex geometries. In this paper we propose a provably stable hybrid method for a 2D advection–diffusion problem, using a class of inner product compatible projection operators to couple the non-conforming grids that arise due to varying the discretization method throughout the domain.

    Encapsulated high order difference operators on curvilinear non-conforming grids2019In: Journal of Computational Physics, ISSN 0021-9991, E-ISSN 1090-2716, Vol. 385, p. 209-224Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Constructing stable difference schemes on complex geometries is an arduous task. Even fairly simple partial differential equations end up very convoluted in their discretized form, making them difficult to implement and manage. Spatial discretizations using so called summation-by-parts operators have mitigated this issue to some extent, particularly on rectangular domains, making it possible to formulate stable discretizations in a compact and understandable manner. However, the simplicity of these formulations is lost for curvilinear grids, where the standard procedure is to transform the grid to a rectangular one, and change the structure of the original equation. In this paper we reinterpret the grid transformation as a transformation of the summation-by-parts operators. This results in operators acting directly on the curvilinear grid. Together with previous developments in the field of nonconforming grid couplings we can formulate simple, implementable, and provably stable schemes on general nonconforming curvilinear grids. The theory is applicable to methods on summation-by-parts form, including finite differences, discontinuous Galerkin spectral element, finite volume, and flux reconstruction methods. Time dependent advection–diffusion simulations corroborate the theoretical development.

    Anestesipersonalens peri-operativa omvårdnad av överviktiga och obesa barn2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Children are a group of patients that require special knowledge from the anesthesia staff, both general and specific. Theoretical knowledge and practical experience is necessary to adequately care for the child as it anatomically, physiologically and mentally may differ from adult patients.

    A growing problem in the pediatric population is overweight and obesity. From a stagnation in the early 2000s the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children in the world are again increasing.The purpose of this study was to examine peri-operative care of overweight and obese children.

    Systematic searches were done in PubMed, CINAHL and Scopus. After the quality audit according to SBU, twelve articles were included for analysis.

    Results suggest that overweight and obese children have a higher risk of respiratory peri-operative complications. The risk of hospital admission after outpatient surgery was also greater in this group as well as higher costs for health care.

    Overweight and obese children are complex subjects with more frequent peri-operative risk factors than normal-weight children. This group requires special knowledge of the anesthesia staff. More studies are required to secure evidence in anesthetic care for overweight and obese children.

    Knowledge integration of and by design2016In: Swedish Design Research Journal, ISSN 2000-964X, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 21-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to explore the possible uses, benefits, limitations and future directions of a formal knowledge integration perspective on design management. The paper develops the concepts of management thinking and design(erly) thinking, and questions the implied contention. With a knowledge perspective, design management may be seen as including the capability to integrate specialized, distributed and heterogeneous knowledge bases. Consequences regarding the characteristics of scope, flexibility and efficiency of knowledge integration indicate both greater difficulties and greater possibilities.  Regarding the architecture of knowledge, integration of design indicates a functional orientation and a limited role for design, while integration by design may indicate a strategic role.

Regarding the architecture of knowledge, the integration of design indicates a functional orientation and a limited role for design, while integration by design may indicate a strategic role. Also, whether integration of design or by design, the construction of common knowledge, bridging the specialized fields, seems a prerequisite for the effective knowledge integration of management thinking and design(erly thinking.

    Design of an End Effector for Drilling in Automated Processes2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In an attempt to solve a problem concerning drilling, a project was started at the universities in Linköping and Lund. As a part of the project this thesis aims to help solve the drilling problem. The goal of this thesis is to design an end effector that will help avoid slipping when drilling. The methods used were taken from David G. Ullman’s book The Mechanical Design Process. Members involved in the project were interviewed to get an understanding of the task. With that done the concept generation phase began, resulting in several concepts. With the use of evaluation methods, such as feasibility judgment and Go/No-Go screening, a final concept emerged. All of the parts and details of the concept were designed with respect for the customers’ requirements and demands.

    Den omanliga läsningen!: En litteraturstudie rörande de könsskillnader som finns kring läsning utifrån ett genusperspektiv2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna litteraturstudie ämnar undersöka varför det är skillnad mellan tjejers och killars läsning och läsvanor samt hur synen på läsning som något lustfyllt respektive bildande ser ut idag. Utgångspunkten för studien och området är avhandlingar, artiklar och forskningsrapporter samt den senaste PISA-undersökningen från år 2012, som konstaterar att killar läser sämre än tjejer. Utifrån tidigare forskning presenteras de förklaringar som finns kring skillnaderna, där de sociokulturella förklaringarna står i fokus men för att få ett större perspektiv och förståelse för området så kommer även de biologiska förklaringarna att synliggöras.

    Av de resultat som presenteras är de sociokulturella förklaringarna som exempelvis betydelsen av läraren kön, bristen på manliga förebilder, läsning som något kvinnligt några av de återkommande argumenten för skillnaderna i tjejers och killars läsning. Flertalet forskare belyser dock att de biologiska förklaringarna, såsom mognad och hjärnans utveckling, behövs tillsammans med de sociokulturella för att kunna förstå och motverka skillnaderna av tjejers och killars läsning. Synen på läsning, då som nu, påverkar inställningen där den kvinnliga nöjesläsningen oftast ses som mindre värd i förhållande till mäns bildande läsning. De förklaringar som belyses i denna studie har även flertalet lösningar för hur man kan förebygga de skillnader som finns. Vidare diskuteras även literacy där det konstateras att skolans literacy skiljer sig från killarnas och att detta kan vara en förklaring till skillnaderna inom läsning.

    Anammande av betalningsapplikationer: Går det att påverka adoptionsprocessen för hur medelålders individer anammar mobila betalningsapplikationer?2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The divide between how people of different ages make use of technology grows. Future retirees will have to be capable of using assistive technology. As banks no longer keep and manage cash, older people find it increasingly difficult to manage their finances. To this problem, the payment solution Swish was introduced.

    The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how users perceive and use payment applications. The study examines how individuals aged between 40-67 experience payment applications and whether it is possible to influence those who do not use them or not.

    This is a qualitative study based on actual user experiences. Primary data was collected through semi-structured interviews with both experts and users. The experts have contributed with their knowledge of Swish. As a complement to the interviews with people that do not use Swish, the authors used tested the interviewees' ability and to gain a deeper understanding of how they perceive the application through an experiment. The themes presented in the study's analysis section are based on empirical data.

    It is possible to influence user adoption of mobile payment applications. How customers embrace such services depend on a combination of factors like their relationship with the bank, how they perceive their own technical ability and customer trigger events. Technology adoption can be facilitated by offering supporting customer service to non-users.

    Redovisning av korruptionsrisker i statligt ägda bolag: En analys av EU:s hållbarhetsredovisningsdirektiv mot bakgrund av svenska statligt ägda bolags hållbarhetsredovisningar år 20162018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    CSR och hållbart företagande är traditionellt sett flexibelt hållna begrepp som företag uppmuntras att arbeta med på eget initiativ. Med vägledning av internationella standarder uppmuntras företag minimera negativa konsekvenser som deras verksamheter kan generera. Mot bakgrund av ett ökat behov av transparens och enhetlighet mellan företag som är verksamma på EU:s inre marknad har hållbarhetsredovisningsdirektivet antagits. Direktivet, vilket har genomförts i svensk rätt genom införande av bland annat 6 kap 12 § årsredovisningslagen, föreskriver en skyldighet för företag av viss storlek att identifiera väsentliga risker i verksamheten och redovisa dessa i en hållbarhetsredovisning som del av företagets förvaltningsberättelse. Riskidentifieringen ska göras mot bakgrund av vad som är nödvändigt för förståelse av företagets verksamhet, och innefatta risker i affärsförbindelser när det är relevant. En av de aspekterna som företag ska identifiera och redovisa risken för är korruption. Hållbarhetsredovisningskravet gäller från och med redovisningen av verksamhetsåret 2017.

    Svenska staten är en stor bolagsägare i Sverige och ställer krav på de statligt ägda bolagen att agera föredömligt på området för hållbart företagande, bland annat genom krav på efterlevnad av en framtagen ägarpolicy. Inom ramen för en empirisk studie har 47 statligt ägda bolags hållbarhetsredovisningar för verksamhetsåret 2016 granskats. Syftet var att fastställa hur de statligt ägda bolagen arbetar med identifiering och redovisning av risker för korruption, mot bakgrund av att redovisningskravet hittills inte har varit rättsligt bindande. Mot bakgrund av det varierande resultatet som studien visar kan ifrågasättas om samtliga av de statligt ägda bolagen agerar med en sådan föredömlighet som föreskrivs i ägarpolicyn.

    Genom en analys av huruvida hållbarhetsredovisningsdirektivet och 6 kap. 12 § årsredovisningslagen kan förhindra den underlåtenhet att redovisa risker för korruption som idag torde vara möjlig, konstateras att direktivet i teorin uppfyller sitt ändamål. Efter att redovisningskravet har börjat gälla kan korruption presumeras utgöra en väsentlig fråga för företag, vilket ställer höga krav för utelämnande av identifiering av korruptionsrisker i redovisningen. Ur praktisk synpunkt kan däremot anföras att direktivets språkliga utformning erbjuder en sådan flexibilitet vad gäller bedömningen av riskernas väsentlighet, att överträdelser av direktivet torde bli svåra att tillskriva företag eller dess företrädare ansvar för. Som slutsats anförs att direktivets föreskrifter borde ha utformats med mindre flexibilitet, i syfte att uppnå den enhetlighet mellan företags redovisningar som eftersträvas.

    Symptom Relief and Palliative Care during the Last Week of Life among Patients with Heart Failure: A National Register Study2018In: Journal of Palliative Medicine, ISSN 1096-6218, E-ISSN 1557-7740, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 361-367Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Heart failure is a disease with high morbidity, mortality, and physical and psychological burden. More knowledge about the care provided for patients with heart failure close to death is needed. Objective: The aim was to describe key aspects of palliative care during the last week of life in patients with heart failure, as reported by healthcare professionals. Design: This is a national register study. Setting/Subjects: The study included 3981 patients with diagnosed heart failure as the underlying cause of death. Measurements: Data were obtained from the Swedish Register of Palliative Care, a national quality register that focuses on patients last week of life, independent of diagnosis or care setting. The register includes information about care interventions connected with key aspects of palliative care. Data are reported retrospectively by a nurse or physician at the healthcare unit where the patient dies. Results: Only 4.2% of patients with heart failure received specialized palliative care. In their last week of life, symptom prevalence was high, validated scales were seldom used, and symptoms were unsatisfactorily relieved. Around one-fifth (17%) of the patients in the study died alone. Less than half of family members had been offered bereavement support (45%). Moreover, one-third (28%) of the patients and more than half (61%) of the family members were reported to have had end-of-life discussions with a physician during the illness trajectory. Conclusion: The results indicate inadequate palliative care for patients with heart failure during their last week of life.

    Background: Social support is generally known to influence health-related quality of life (HRQoL), but this association is not well explored among older patients with chronic heart failure. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanAims: (1) To describe social support in older patients with chronic heart failure in relation to gender. (2) To investigate if age, gender, cohabitation, perceived financial situation, and disease severity are associated with social support. (3) To investigate if social support is associated with HRQoL after controlling for age, gender, and disease severity. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanMethods: Data were collected in a sample of 349 patients (andgt;= 65 years) with chronic heart failure. Patients HRQoL was measured with the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire and the Short Form-12 Health Survey Questionnaire. The Interview Schedule for Social Interaction measured social support. Data were analysed with descriptive statistics, repeated-measure ANOVA, and multiple linear regression analyses with robust standard errors. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanResults: Social support was generally rated high, although being a man, living alone, perceiving a problematic financial situation, and high disease severity (NYHA) were associated with lower levels of social support. Age was not associated with social support. Social support was generally associated with HRQoL, in particular the emotional dimensions. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanConclusion: Taking social support into account when caring for older patients with heart failure can be of importance for improving or maintaining HRQoL.

    A psychometric evaluation of the four-item version of the Control Attitudes Scale for patients with cardiac disease and their partners2015In: European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 1474-5151, E-ISSN 1873-1953, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 317-325Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background:The four-item Control Attitudes Scale (CAS) was developed to measure control perceived by patients with cardiac disease and their family members, but extensive psychometric evaluation has not been performed.Objective:The aim was to translate, culturally adapt and psychometrically evaluate the CAS in a Swedish sample of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) recipients, heart failure (HF) patients and their partners.Methods:A sample (n=391) of ICD recipients, HF patients and partners were used. Descriptive statistics, item-total and inter-item correlations, exploratory factor analysis, ordinal regression modelling and Cronbach's alpha were used to validate the CAS.Results:The findings from the factor analyses revealed that the CAS is a multidimensional scale including two factors, Control and Helplessness. The internal consistency was satisfactory for all scales (α=0.74-0.85), except the family version total scale (α=0.62). No differential item functioning was detected which implies that the CAS can be used to make invariant comparisons between groups of different age and sex.Conclusions:The psychometric properties, together with the simple and short format of the CAS, make it to a useful tool for measuring perceived control among patients with cardiac diseases and their family members. When using the CAS, subscale scores should be preferred.

    Klimatinducerade fenologiförändringar och dess effekter i näringsväven2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The climate affects animal populations through several processes. These processes includereproduction, phenology and the success of hunting. By influencing the phenology of species theclimate also affects the way species interact. If a climate-induced phenology change promotes abasal species to bud earlier in the spring for example, this will affect the links to other species inthe food web due to a time lag in the tropic levels above. This dependence, that a predator has tobeing synchronous to its prey, is called the match/mismatch hypothesis (MMH). Studies haveindicated that species higher up in the food web adapt slower than species lower in the food webwith shorter generation times (which creates a temporal mismatch).A climate-induced phenology change in basal species could therefore be expected to affect thedensities and extinction rates of species higher up in the food web.In this study a declining conversion efficiency for predators was used to model the effects ofclimate change on triangular food webs with three trophic levels. This was done by using ageneralized Lotka-Volterra model. The results indicate that, in a food web with three trophiclevels, the densities of herbivores and carnivores drops in response to an increased change ofclimate. The extinction rates of carnivores also increase rapidly in response to an increasedclimate change.

    Conditions for successful range shifts under climate change: The role of species dispersal and landscape configuration2018In: Diversity & distributions: A journal of biological invasions and biodiversity, ISSN 1366-9516, E-ISSN 1472-4642, Vol. 24, no 11, p. 1598-1611Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: Ongoing climate change is currently modifying the geographical location of areas that are climatically suitable for species. Understanding a species ability to successfully shift its geographical range would allow us to assess extinction risks and predict future community compositions. We investigate how habitat configuration impedes or promotes climate-driven range shifts, given different speeds of climate change and dispersal abilities. Location: Theoretical, but illustrated with European examples. Methods: We model how a species ability to track a directional shift in climatic conditions is affected by (a) species dispersal abilities; (b) speed of climatic shift; and (c) spatial arrangement of the habitat. Our modelling framework includes within-and between-patch population dynamics and uses ecologically realistic habitat distributions and dispersal scenarios (verified with data from a set of European mammal species) and, as such, is an improvement of classical range shift models. Result: In landscapes with a homogeneous distribution of suitable habitats, all but the least dispersive species will be able to range shift. However, species with high dispersal ability will have lower population densities after range shift. In heterogeneous landscapes species ability to range shift is far more variable and heavily dependent on the habitat configuration. This means that landscape configuration in combination with the speed of climate change and species dispersal abilities give rise to nonlinear effects on population sizes and survival after a climatic shift. Main conclusions: Our analyses point out the importance of accounting for the interplay of species dispersal and the landscape configuration when estimating future climate impact on species. These results link ecologically important attributes of both species and their landscapes to outcomes of species range shift, and thereby long-term persistence of ecological communities.

    Improved method for analysis of cysteinyldopa in human serum2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation, ISSN 0036-5513, E-ISSN 1502-7686, Vol. 64, no 6, p. 559-564Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    5-S-L-Cysteinyl-L-dopa is a well-known pigment intermediate and analysis of its serum concentration is well suited for evaluation of treatment and follow-up of stage III and IV malignant melanoma. A simplified analytical method is described using organic extraction followed by clean-up on a boronate gel to capture the compound containing vicinal hydroxyls. Weak acid solution elutes the 5-S-cysteinyldopa suitable for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The absolute recoveries of cysteinyldopa and its diastereomer 5-S-D-cysteinyl-L-dopa (used as an internal standard) were 81.5±2.8% and 81.3±2.7%, respectively, and use of the internal standard for the whole procedure gave an analytical recovery of 101±0.8%. The limit of quantitation was 1.5 nmol/L and the imprecision of the method was < 5.0% over the analytical range 1.5-500 nmol/L. The method is cheap and easy to perform and compares well with other described techniques. The use of the method is illustrated by results obtained during treatment of a patient with metastatic malignant melanoma.

    Exploring Collaboration Between the Fire and Rescue Service and New Actors: Cost-efficiency and Adaptation2015Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The emergency services serves an important purpose in society by ensuring that people in need, regardless of their geographical location, receives help when they fall victims to undesirable incidents. Existing resources are however often limited and concentrated to urban areas making travel distances to remote areas long. Local authorities are also facing budget constraints and clients are becoming more demanding. This means that the emergency services need to do more, but with less resources. Collaboration with new actors has therefore been proposed as a solution. There exist several actors with basic knowledge in both fire suppression or medical treatment that might be able to contribute at an early stage in order to reduce response time and provide help to citizens in need. However, little research has been dedicated to investigating the possibilities and the potential of new collaborative practices in every day accidents.

    In this thesis collaboration between new actors and the fire and rescue service (FRS) in Sweden is studied. The aim is to analyze whether collaborative practices leads to an increased cost-efficiency, for the FRS and society as a whole. The thesis also aims to analyze how traditional actors and new actors adapt to collaborative practices.

    For evaluating cost-efficiency in the FRS stochastic frontier analysis is used and for analyzing the societal effects cost-benefit analysis is applied. In total three cases are studied; (1) security officers assisting the FRS in fire alarms (2) home care nurses collaborating with the FRS in medical alarms and (3) citizens responding to FRS-alarms through SMS.

    The results do not show that collaboration have led to increased cost-efficiency in the FRS during the studied time period. However, despite that no evidence for increased cost-efficiency is found in the FRS, there are several societal gains from collaborating related to e.g. equity, quality and effectiveness. And the costs for implementing collaborative arrangements are relatively low. It is however argued that to be able to get the most out of collaboration more emphasis should be put on building common platforms, where the different organizations and actors can communicate, share experiences, organize joint training sessions and actually collaborate. Today interaction outside the rescue site hardly exist between the collaborative partners; the actual collaboration between the FRS and the new actors is limited only to the response phase. Also, the FRS do not adapt their bureaucratic structures to collaborate with the new actors. Instead the changes associated with collaboration affect mainly the new actors, as an addition to their regular duties. Factors related to discretion, professional identity and personal motivation are identified as important for understanding how new actors adapt to collaboration.

    Abstract [en]

    Fire and rescue services in Sweden have recently undergone organizational changes aiming at improving service quality and efficiency. Among those changes are an increased number of formalized cooperations between FRSs in neighboring municipalities, increased collaboration with other sectors in day-to-day operations, changes in the structure of rescue teams, and an increase in the tasks performed by the services. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether these policy changes have resulted in increased cost efficiency in the Swedish FRS. We used stochastic frontier analysis of annual data from 2009 to 2012 for 205 Swedish municipalities, taking into account the relevant differences in conditions among them. The conclusion is that there is no evidence to be found of improved efficiency in the FRS. The policy changes that have been implemented have not had the desired effects, and most of the policy variables tested for inclusion in the model were not found significant. Recommendations for future research are to further investigate why these policy changes have not yet given the expected results, to examine how and if collaboration with different types of organizations (public, private and non-profit) affects efficiency differently and to make further in-depth comparisons between the most efficient and least efficient FRSs for there are great variations between them.

    2015 (English)In: International Journal of Emergency Services, ISSN 2047-0894, E-ISSN 2047-0908, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 177-193Article in journal (Refereed) Published
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    – The purpose of this paper is to analyse costs and benefits from new collaborations in daily emergency response and to demonstrate how cost-benefit analysis (CBA) can be used for evaluating effects from these kinds of collaborations.

    Design/methodology/approach

    – CBA is used to evaluate two collaborations. The cases are: security officers that respond to fire and rescue service (FRS) calls; and home care nurses that assist the FRSs when they respond to urgent medical calls. Interviews, public documents and incident reports have been used as sources of data.

    Findings

    – Most costs are relatively straightforward to estimate. More difficult to estimate are the turn-out costs, including the services that cannot be performed when the new actors take on new assignments. One important benefit from these kinds of collaborations is reduced response time. Other benefits include increased situational awareness and improved preventive work in Case 1, as well as improved working conditions for the traditional resources and increased medical competence in Case 2. The analysis indicate that the case with the security officers most likely was socially beneficial, while the case with the home care nurses at the time of the study was not.

    Originality/value

    – The authors provide a thorough description and analysis of two interesting new ways of performing daily emergency response. Furthermore, the authors depict how CBA can be used to structure the analysis and evaluation of new initiatives in emergence services and how it can be used for identifying improvement potential. The authors also identify and discuss what is needed in terms of documentation as well as research, for it to be possible to improve the quantitative analysis of these kinds of initiatives

    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses collaborative practice within the fire and rescue services (FRS), with the aim to describe how the FRS adapt to a collaborative service delivery and to provide a theoretical understanding of the new type of actors emerging in such context. The findings are based on three collaborative cases. The data consist of public documents, interviews, and incident reports. The findings show that FRS does not adapt to a collaborative setting, instead the adjustment is made by the new actors. Discretion, professional identity, and personal motivation are factors related to understanding the new front-line actors that emerge within this context.

    Abstract [sv]

    I akademin är det vanligt att man högtidlighåller och firar framstående och seniora professorer som fyller jämt genom att författa en vänbok. Jag har i min egen bokhylla flera sådana volymer och de har alla det gemensamt att kollegor eller andra som står jubilaren nära har författat ett kapitel eller avsnitt. Temat för boken brukar vara ett särskilt vetenskapligt fält, en fråga eller en metod som ligger födelsedagsbarnet varmt om hjärtat. På så sätt visar man professorn sin uppskattning och tecknar i viss mån hans eller hennes vetenskapliga värv. Det du nu håller i din hand är just en sådan vänbok men av ett litet annat slag. Jubilaren i det här fallet är nämligen inte en person, inte någon framstående forskare och professor. Jubilaren som tillägnas denna bok är en mycket speciell organisation i det akademiska landskapet och heter Forum för genusvetenskap och jämställdhet. Anledningen till att vi författat denna vänbok är att Forum som inrättning vid Linköpings universitetfyllt 25 år och vi vill på detta sätt hylla vår vän!

     Koningin Christina van Zweden ging in de 17e eeuw haar eigen gang. Lapte de verwachtingen van haar 'als vrouw' aan haar laars en was ook nog eens een toonaangevende intellectueel. Maar ze had ook een zeer lage dunk van datgene wat -typisch vrouwelijk- was en gaf bovendien vrijwillig haar macht op. Even slikken voor wie haar graag als recalcitrante koningin in het hart had gesloten. Maar toch een inspirerend rolmodel.

      "Concepts up for discussion: On the concept of genus in Swedish Gender Studies"

    This article concerns a lively conceptual debatethat took place in Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift (Swedish Journal of Women's Studies) between 1980-1998. When Yvonne Hirdman, a Swedish historian, in 1988 introduced the concepts of gender and gender system in KVT (in Swedish: genus and genussystem), this sparked off intense discussions and caused theoretical divisions within Swedish feminism. Opinions were divided on the direction that one believed feminist theory should take. Should one strive for something like a new Grand Theory on women's subordination or should the aspirations be somewhat smaller?In this article the author illustrates the shifting emphases in the journal on such theoretical problems as essentialism versus social constructivism and agents of change versus stabile structures -perspectives. The article also takes into account the new challenges that different theories of a more or less postmodern nature put forward, for instance sexual difference theory. The ongoing feminist theoretical developmenthas included an expansion, both in terms of a broadening of the investigatory horizon and research delving deeper into various fields. Nowadays Women's Studies is part of the larger field of Gender Studies. Genus, today, signifies the growing amount of knowledge about sex and gender,femininity and masculinity, and is often conceptualized,not as a system, but as an ongoing identity forging process of historically changing ideas.

    Den posthumanistiska utmaningen: Krönika2009In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, no 2-3, p. 65-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag menar att feministisk forskning står mitt i en posthumanistisk utmaning. När människor idag på ett alltmer uppenbart sätt är invävda i komplexa relationer till teknik, medicin och naturvetenskap, till andra djur, omgivning och miljö, skakas humanismens teorier om mänsklighetens villkor och etik, liksom dess exkluderande biopolitik, om ordentligt. Humanvetenskapernas omfång och räckvidd har också utmanats. Från det inre av ämnen som filosofi, historia och litteraturvetenskap har genusforskning tillsammans med cultural studies, queer studies, postcolonial studies, science and literature studies sprungit fram och bidragit med grundläggande ifrågasättanden av humanioras studieobjekt, studiesubjekt, disciplinära normer, kunskapsregimer och maktrelationer. Humaniora är en mäktig traditionsbevarare, men också samtidigt en vital plats för kritik och uppfinningsrikedom. Det är en plats grogrund för ett posthumanistiskt perspektiv med utgångspunkt i feministisk teori.

    Abstract [en]

    In this commentary, the microscopic animals of the genus Rotifera, or "rotifers," emerge as a theory-provoking nonhuman animal. Rotifers embody otherness in ways that may intrigue scholars within both Human-Animal Studies and feminist science studies. In their encounter with rotifers, such fields of research (and others) might also engage each other in new, unexpected, and fruitful ways, as is here argued.

    Enter Cyborg: tracing the historiography and ontological turn of feminist technoscience studies2010In: International Journal of Feminist Technosciences, ISSN 1654-6792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The cyborg is a figure we now easily connect with early 1990s feminist technoscience studies,indeed it is a foundational figure of the field. However, cyborgs do not just trace older, but also a lot more ambiguous and less feminist roots within our technoscientific modernity. Theaim of this article is to provide a genealogical map of feminist entanglements with especiallythe biological sciences and with the body. In particular, I aim here to show how the figure of the cyborg in fact might be positioned as the first sign materializing and anticipating what wetoday might call the ontological turn within feminist theory and technoscience studies.

    Genetiska föreställningar: Mellan genus och gener i populär/vetenskapens visuella kulturer2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how representations of genes and genetics have given rise to new kinds of cultural imageries created and reflected in popular science media. The concept of popular/science is used here in order to circumvent the traditional diffusion model of science communication, and to focus instead on how popular science media taps into scientific discourse just as scientific representations draw on popular imagery. The study thus shows how the new genetics is not created in a cultural vacuum, but thrives in the intersection of popular culture and science culture. The main argument is that together with the changing genetic imageries in popular/science both conventional and unconventional ways of enacting gender, sexuality and race emerge. Thus the illustrations and stories assembled and analysed here can be regarded as contested sites of social change.

    This exploration of contemporary representations of genes and genetics is performed with analytical tools from the overlappmg fields of feminist cultural studies, visual studies, and science and literature studies. As the ways of representing genes and generics in the visual field of popular science media are mapped out, the thesis gives a partial and local account of the mosaic of the genetic imaginary - a discursive fantasy landscape which is used as a resource for collective subject formations, and in which cultural communities mirror and articulate themselves.
