    Hand function in women and men with early rheumatoid arthritis: A prospective study over three years (the Swedish TIRA project)2006In: Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology, ISSN 0300-9742, E-ISSN 1502-7732, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 15-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To describe the course of hand function in women and men during the first 3 years after diagnosis of recent-onset rheumatoid arthritis (RA), to investigate sex differences in hand function, and to study correlations between and within hand function assessments.

    Methods: A total of 276 patients (69% women) with RA of a maximal duration of 12 months were recruited to the study. Hand function was assessed by the Grip Ability Test (GAT) and Signals of Functional Impairment (SOFI). Peak and average grip force over 10 s in the right and left hand was measured by an electronic device.

    Results: Hand function was affected at diagnosis, but had improved significantly at the 3-months' follow-up and then remained stable (but still affected) in both women and men. As assessed by SOFI, hand function was worse in men than in women, whereas women had significantly lower grip force. GAT, grip force, and SOFI correlated weakly. The average and peak values of grip force correlated strongly, as did the grip force in the right and the left hand.

    Conclusion: Hand function was profoundly affected at diagnosis of RA, but improved significantly within 3 months and remained stable (but still affected) over 3 years. As expected, women on average had significantly lower grip force than men.

    Hand Function and Activity Limitation According to Health Assessment Questionnaire in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Healthy Referents: 5-Year Followup of Predictors of Activity Limitation (The Swedish TIRA Project)2007In: Journal of Rheumatology, ISSN 0315-162X, E-ISSN 1499-2752, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 296-302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: This study identifies baseline predictors of future activity limitation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To reinforce the utility of instruments assessing functional ability/activity limitation, we used reference data from healthy referents.

    Methods: This study includes 189 patients (69% women) with recent-onset RA (onset of joint swelling not more than 12 months at diagnosis) in a prospective cohort ("the Swedish TIRA project") during 27 months from 1996 through 1998. Regular followups were done for a period of 5 years, and 123 healthy persons (50% women) were recruited as referents. Hand function was assessed by the "grip ability test (GAT)" and "signals of functional impairment" (SOFI). Grip force was measured with the electronic device GrippitTM. Activity limitation was assessed with the Swedish version of the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ).

    Results: Throughout the study and for both sexes, GAT, grip force, SOFI-hand, and HAQ were significantly different for the patients compared to healthy referents. In the healthy referents, HAQ was mainly related to age and GAT, whereas in RA HAQ was most obviously linked to grip force. Five years after diagnosis only 8% of HAQ outcome was explained by the baseline measures: HAQ, grip force, SOFI-lower limb, sex, walking speed, and GAT.

    Conclusion: Our study provides valuable reference data for several functional ability and activity limitation measures. The HAQ score was explained by different variables in healthy referents compared to patients with RA. Five years after diagnosis only 8% of HAQ outcome was explained by the variables assessed at inclusion.

    Prevalence of current and chronic pain and their influences upon work and healthcare-seeking: A population study2004In: Journal of Rheumatology, ISSN 0315-162X, E-ISSN 1499-2752, Vol. 31, no 7, p. 1399-1406Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective. To investigate the prevalence of current and chronic pain and their relationship to pain intensity, sex, age, income, employment status, citizenship, marital status, urban residence, occupational activity, and healthcare-seeking based on a representative sample from a Swedish county. Methods. A cross-sectional survey using a postal questionnaire was sent to a representative sample (n = 9952) of the target population (284,073 people, age 18-74 yrs) in a county (Östergötland) in southern Sweden. A questionnaire was mailed and followed by 2 postal reminders if necessary. Results. The participation rate was 76.7% (n = 7637), nonparticipants were on average younger, male, and earned less money. The overall point prevalence of pain was 48.9%. The corresponding one-month period prevalence was 63.0%, and pain on several occasions during the previous 3 months was reported by 61.3% of participants. The prevalence of chronic pain (pain > 3 months) was 53.7%. Female sex, age, and sick leave/early retirement were generally of significant importance in the regressions of pain. No sex factor was found in the regressions of pain frequency and pain intensity. Chronic pain - especially frequent and intensive pain - showed clear associations with healthcare-seeking and occupational activity. Conclusion. High prevalence of current pain (48.9%) and chronic pain (53.7%) were found in this community-based study. Being female, older, and on sick leave or early retirement were generally of significant importance in the regressions of pain. Chronic pain showed clear associations with healthcare-seeking and occupational activity, indicating considerable socioeconomic costs.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna volym innehåller ICF, Internationell klassifikation av funktionstillstånd, funktionshinder och hälsa. 1 Det övergripande målet för klassifikationen är att erbjuda ett samlat och standardiserat språk och en struktur för att beskriva hälsa och hälsorelaterade tillstånd. Den definierar hälsokomponenter och några hälsorelaterade komponenter av välbefinnande (såsom utbildning och arbete). ICF:s domäner kan därför ses som

    hälsodomäner och hälsorelaterade domäner. Dessa beskrivs ur kroppsliga, personliga och sociala perspektiv genom två grundläggande förteckningar: (1) kroppsfunktioner och kroppsstrukturer, (2) aktiviteter och delaktighet. 2 Som klassifikation grupperar ICF olika domäner3 för en person med en given hälsobetingelse (dvs. vad en person med en sjukdom eller störning gör eller kan göra).

    Funktionstillstånd utgör en paraplyterm för alla kroppsfunktioner, kroppsstrukturer, aktiviteter och delaktighet och på motsvarande sätt är Funktionshinder en paraplyterm för funktionsnedsättningar, strukturavvikelser, aktivitetsbegränsningar eller delaktighetsinskränkningar. ICF förtecknar även omgivningsfaktorer som interagerar med alla dessa begrepp. ICF erbjuder därmed en möjlighet att beskriva en profil av personers funktionstillstånd, funktionshinder och hälsa inom flera domäner. ICF tillhör en ”familj” av

    Concepts in occupational therapy in relation to the ICF2003In: Occupational Therapy International, ISSN 0966-7903, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 253-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Occupational therapists need an acceptable terminology to describe a client's clinical performance. The language or terminology must be in harmony with common language in the health care system but also reflect occupational therapists' professional responsibility. The aim of this paper is to help clarify similarities and differences between concepts in occupational therapy and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Two studies were completed in which items in the International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps (ICIDH-2) were compared with concepts from the Swedish version of the assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) and the Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skills (ACIS-S). An expert panel of occupational therapists served as raters and 33 clients with learning disabilities and mental health problems were assessed. The result showed that 12 (60%) of the skills items from the ACIS-S were found to be equivalent to items in then ICIDH-2. In total, 41% (n = 23) of the items in the AMPS or ACIS-S have a correlation higher then 0.60 with the ICIDH-2. The classification can serve as a useful tool for occupational therapists and supports communication between professions, but is not sufficient as a professional language for occupational therapists. Further research is indicated to examine how the ICF can be applied in occupational therapy and its implications on clinical practice.

    How to apply an Occupation Paradigm in a Problem Based Learning Curriculum2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing demands of professions like occupational therapy worldwide require good quality standards of the education. Traditional education has been based on the notion that teachers have knowledge and are responsible for passing on this knowledge to the students. However, in order to make educations attractive and effective new educational methods have developed. One such method is problem-based learning (PBL) which emphasizes that learning must be an active process involving knowledge as well as cognitive and practical skills and attitudes. This article describes PBL as it is applied with the concept of occupation as the core of an occupational therapy educational program. Occupation is a central concept in occupation therapy. Students need to develop a genuine knowledge and understanding of the occupational nature of humans, the meaning of the concept and environmental influences.

    Psychiatric occupational therapy service - Quality assurance2004In: Nordic Journal of Psychiatry, ISSN 0803-9488, E-ISSN 1502-4725, Vol. 58, no 5, p. 403-407Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last few decades, quality assurance has been a central issue in the societies, both in, for example the industrial area and in healthcare. It is a tool to measure the outcomes of product or service provided. A review of the literature during the last 17 years with respect to quality assurance work in psychiatric occupational therapy indicates that few articles have been published in the area and that their scientific quality is questionable. The studies show many methodological shortcomings, which result in difficulty drawing any conclusion from the studies. The number of publications is also decreasing. Furthermore, a survey to investigate quality assurance work in psychiatric occupational therapy service shows that the occupational therapists do not work with quality assurance methods to a great extent. The methods they use most are interviews with patients and patient questionnaire. Both these methods require documentation in order to offer the patient a suitable service. Quality assurance work will be difficult to implement if no documentation is available. Documentation is central to communicating with other professions and with the client. This study points out that occupational therapists need to improve practice as well as research concerning quality assurance in order to ensure that they offer the patient a high-quality service.

    Clinical perspective on the Swedish version of the Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skills: Stability of assessments2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 417-423Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether ratings according to the Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skills, Swedish version (ACIS-S) are related to the settings in which the skills are assessed, and whether the client's comprehension of the setting is related to the ACIS-S rating scores. The ACIS-S is an observation rating scale applied immediately after each of two to six different social sessions that the client takes part in. The selection of settings relies on the client's judgement of them as being meaningful. In total, nine occupational therapists and 16 clients participated in the study. A total of 71 ratings were made in a mean of 4.4 settings per client. The results indicate that the client's rated comprehension of the settings is not significantly related, in general, to the ACIS-S rating scores given by the occupational therapist. However, the clients ACIS-S scores may vary a lot over settings. In the present study, 13- of the 20-items showed ratings of both the existence and the absence of problems in the same skill - but in different settings - in half or more of the client group. This may rise questions for the practitioners how to implement the ACIS-S in clinical practice, for example, how many and which kind of settings and how many times? Further research in the field is recommended. © 2004 Nordic College of Caring Sciences.

    Women with fibromyalgia: Work and rehabilitation2005In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 27, no 12, p. 685-695Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. To explore disability in women with fibromyalgia with a focus on their work situation. Method. Review of literature on work status of women with fibromyalgia. Results. Major differences exist between studies in reported disability and in the percentages of women working. Limitations caused by pain, fatigue, decreased muscle strength, and endurance influence work capacity. However, 34-77% of the women work. Individual adjustments in the work situation are reported. When the women find a level that matches their ability, they continue to work and find satisfaction in their work role. Many factors besides degree of impairment or disability influence whether clients with longstanding pain can remain in their work role or return to work after sickness leave. Conclusion. The total life situation, other commitments, type of work tasks, the ability to influence the work situation, and the physical and psychosocial work environment are important factors in determining whether a person can remain in a work role. More knowledge is needed about how to adjust work conditions for people with partial work ability to the benefit of society and the individual.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to validate the Swedish translation of the Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skills (ACIS-S) and its applicability in Sweden. The ACIS is an observational rating scale designed to capture, in detail, a person's social interactional ability, while he/she is participating in meaningful occupations. Eighteen occupational therapists trained in administering the ACIS-S, completed 157 ACIS-S assessments of 67 subjects with psychosocial and learning disabilities. Many-faceted Rasch analysis was used to analyse the data. The results supported internal, construct and person response validity of the ACIS-S, and rater validity and reliability. The scale effectively categorized subjects according to the levels of communication and interaction ability.

    Validity and reliability testing of the Quality of Life Scale, Swedish version in women with fibromyalgia - Statistical analyses2005In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 64-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One consequence of constant widespread pain is a low quality of life. The purpose of the study was to examine whether the Quality of Life Scale, Swedish version (QOLS-S), regarded as a generic quality-of-life instrument, is a reliable and valid instrument for use in women with fibromyalgia (FM). Women with FM (n = 113) contributed data on the QOLS-S and other standardized instrument at three points in time. Internal consistency reliability estimates ranged from 0.89 to 0.92. Convergent construct validity was indicated by moderate agreement with a global life satisfaction question. Discriminant construct validity was denoted by low correlations with the physical functioning subscale of the SF-36. In a factor analysis three factors emerged: 'personal and social well-being', 'relations with others' and 'active participation'. A few of the items have high cross-loadings, and the instrument could be improved by rewording those items to more closely reflect one specific factor. Overall, these results provide evidence that the QOLS-S has acceptable validity and reliability for use in women with FM.

    Functional status and quality of life in patients with first-episode major depression2006In: Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 1351-0126, E-ISSN 1365-2850, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 205-213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to analyse the level of severity of major depression and its relation to functioning and health-related quality of life over time in patients treated for their first episode of major depression. Thirty-three adult patients who fulfilled the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) criteria for major depression were included in the study. Semi-structured interviews and self-assessment questionnaires were used at baseline and at 6-monthly intervals in a 2-year follow-up, in order to measure the level of severity of depression, functioning and quality of life. The results showed that the first episode of major depression was rated as severe in 43% of cases. Multiple domains of functioning as well as quality of life were strongly affected in patients at baseline, although the level of functioning increased significantly over the study period, as did quality of life, but not concurrently with the decrease in the level of severity of the depression. Psychosocial functioning is an important outcome measure related to major depression, which underlines the importance of separate evaluations initiated and conducted by mental health nurses in order to determine whether or not patients have actually achieved a state of health. © 2006 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

    Living with Parkinson´s disease: Elderly patients´ and relatives´ perspective on daily living2007In: Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, ISSN 0045-0766, E-ISSN 1440-1630, Vol. 54, p. 131-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background/aim: Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder resulting in significant disability. We examined how Parkinson's disease affects daily living from the perspective of both patients and relatives. Methods: Qualitative interviews were performed with seven patients with Parkinson's disease and nine relatives from families other than those of the interviewed patients. Patients and relatives were recruited from an outpatient geriatric unit at a university hospital in Sweden. The interviews were transcribed and analysed qualitatively. Results: A conceptual framework encompassing aggravating factors, consequences in daily living and facilitating factors is presented. Patients perceived activity restrictions, changed habits, decreased socialisation and anxiety. Relatives reported changed roles and habits, decreased socialisation, strain and anxiety about the future. Facilitating factors included accessibility, strategies and psychological support for both patients and relatives. Conclusions: The results show that Parkinson's disease affects daily living not only for patients but also for relatives. They need to be seen, heard and supported in this burden. Services must be adapted to the needs of both patients and relatives with accessibility to health-care facilities with deep knowledge about the disease and its consequences. The identified factors are areas of concern in occupational therapy.

    Patient perspective on quality of geriatric care and rehabilitation - Development and psychometric testing of a questionnaire2006In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 135-142Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to develop and test a questionnaire for use in telephone interviews concerning patient evaluation of geriatric care and rehabilitation. Instrument development was performed comprising qualitative interviews, construction of items, content validation, pilot study and data collection for evaluation of care and rehabilitation, clinical utility, reliability and construct validity. Qualitative interviews were performed with 12 elderly participants. The qualitative interviews formed the basis for the construction of 45 items. An expert panel performed a content validation of the questionnaire resulting in a revised version. A pilot study comprised 29 participants recently discharged from geriatric wards and the main data collection comprised 221 participants. Inclusion criteria were being able to perform a telephone interview and willingness to participate. Clinical utility was examined through questions to the interviewers, answered in writing. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was 0.79. According to a factor analysis and the evaluation of clinical utility, the underlying dimensions of the final revised questionnaire concern 'Respect and safety', 'Information and participation' and 'Rehabilitation interventions', scored in 18 items. In addition, one global item concerns satisfaction with care, resulting in 19 items in total. The revised questionnaire was named PaPeR, Patient Perspective on care and Rehabilitation. The questionnaire is considered valid, reliable and judged to have good clinical utility. The time consumption for the telephone interview is about 10-20 minutes. The questionnaire is useful in defining areas for potential quality improvement in geriatric wards. © 2006 Nordic College of Caring Science.

    Evaluation of occupational therapy interventions for elderly patients in Swedish acute care: A pilot study2006In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 13, no 4, p. 203-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to evaluate whether occupational therapy interventions in acute care could improve the elderly patient's perception of ability to manage at home after discharge. A pilot study was performed, including 22 patients in the experimental group and 19 in the control group. Occupational therapy interventions were conducted in the experimental group concerning personal care, information, prescription of assistive devices, planning of discharge, and reporting to primary care or community care. The control group was given no occupational therapy interventions. Structured interviews were performed on discharge and at a follow-up in about 14 weeks after discharge. The two groups were comparable concerning gender, age, days of care, and diagnoses. Patients in the experimental group scored lower on mental health and were more anxious on discharge. However, there was no difference between the groups in managing at home after discharge. Patients in the control group had greater need of further contacts with healthcare after discharge. Due to the small sample interpretations must be made with caution. The findings indicate that occupational therapy interventions in acute care might have a positive effect from the perspective of the elderly patient. These results need to be confirmed in a larger study.

    Barriers and bridges to client-centred occupational therapy in Sweden2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 12-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates barriers to client-centred practice and solutions to overcome these barriers as experienced by Swedish occupational therapists. A British questionnaire was translated into Swedish and completed by 97 occupational therapists. The questionnaire consists of three sections: background information, a list of barriers identified in a literature review, and a list of methods to resolve barriers. The results show that the highest ranked barrier was "the therapist does not know enough about client-centred practice". The highest ranked method to resolve barriers was "management and peer support for use of client-centred practice". Introducing client-centred practice takes time, commitment, education, training, interview skills, discussions with colleagues, and reflection on the therapists' own attitudes. © 2004 Taylor & Francis.

    User satisfaction with mobility assistive devices2004In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 143-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the most common assistive devices are related to mobility. A study was undertaken to evaluate users' opinions on prescription of mobility devices and their satisfaction with devices and services using a cross-sectional design. A random sample of adult users of mobility assistive devices living in three county councils of Sweden was selected. A postal package comprising a questionnaire and QUEST 2.0 was sent out to 400 users of manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, or walkers. Included in the analysis were 208 questionnaires, a response rate of 52%. Most devices were used on a daily basis and satisfaction with the device was high. Satisfaction with the service was scored lower than satisfaction with the device. Follow-up was the single item with the lowest mean score, and 69% of the users reported that they had not received any follow-up. A positive effect especially on users' ability to be active, transport oneself, feel secure, and to take part in social activities was found. Owing to the low response rate the results have to be interpreted with caution. However, follow-up seems to be an area that needs to be improved. The majority of users are satisfied with the device but not with service.
