    Changes and transitions of responsibility when next of kin becomes the caregivers2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    In the ordinary everyday existence of individuals, life usually goes by without them reflecting on its fragility or their relationships. Individuals in a close relationship are united with each other in a mutual dependency and share memories from the past, perceptions of the present and dreams and hopes for the future. When one of them suddenly seriously ill and thereby assumes the role of seriously ill patient while the other takes on the role of close relative, their normal life is changed into an extraordinary situation. Everyday life can be complex when next of kin are preoccupied with taking responsibility of the care, which in turn lead to a changed life situation and restrictions in everyday life. The summary of the current knowledge highlighted the importance of understanding of next of kin´ coping approaches during responsibility for caring at home. 

    Aim and method

    This study explores the process of changes for next of kin´ in a care home for older relatives from the perspectives of the responsibility for caring. Data were collected using narrative interview with 8 next of kin’ at home. The following questions were asked: Please describe the changed situation you have gone through, when you having the difficult care situation and what did you do to cope with your situation? The individual interviews were nearly all transcribed verbatim, a few were listen to and taking notes during listening. The data set were analyzed by using thematic analysis.

    Findings and conclusion

    Four themes revealed from narrative interviews with the next of kin´. The four themes were: Sources of responsibility related to family interaction; Consequences of changes for everyday; Importance on maintaining their own conditions; Roles and relationships over time. Based on a synthesis of data the themes and basic transitions that emerged were termed “re-constructing roles and relationships”. This highlights the subtle and dynamic way of changes and reinforces the importance of understanding the transitions from multiple perspectives. The results of the study may encourage people to engage themselves in self-help activities and strengthen them to believe they are to care for each other.

    Conceptions of life situation among next-of-kin of haemodialysis patients2001In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 231-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The presence of renal disease in a family is a strain on both the patient and the next-of-kin, affecting their life situations. Surprisingly, few studies dealing with the ways that the next-of-kin experience their situation are available. The aim of this study was to describe how the next-of-kin of haemodialysis patients conceive their life situation. Data were collected by interviewing 12 people who live with someone with dialysis-treated renal disease and analysed according to a qualitative method inspired by the phenomenographic approach. Six description categories of how the subjects construed their life situation emerged: a feeling of confinement; a feeling of social isolation; a feeling that the way of life has changed; a feeling of security in life; a feeling of a threatening future; and promoting health. The next-of-kin generally expressed a large degree of commitment to and concern for the sick person. In spite of their life situation having been dramatically changed, the next-of-kin described an ability to adapt. With the help of society the feelings of confinement and social isolation can be dispersed, enabling the next-of-kin to promote the health of the sick person. A suggestion for further research is to study what adaptation strategies next-of-kin use in their life situation.

    Professional support for next of kin of patients receiving chronic haemodialysis treatment: a content analysis study of nursing documentation2007In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 353-361Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim and objectives. The aim of this study was to examine the content of nursing documentation with a focus on professional support for next of kin (NoK) of patients receiving chronic haemodialysis treatment. Background. Professional support in nursing focuses on promotion, maintenance and restoration of health and prevention of illness. Design. The study had a descriptive design and qualitative content analysis was used to search for themes based on descriptions contained in the collected nursing documentation. Methods. The total number of nursing records of patients receiving chronic haemodialysis treatment (n = 50) for the 5-year period 1998–2002 was included. All nursing documentation was systematic in accordance with the VIPS-documentation model. Results. The professional support could be described within the framework of three themes: to explore NoK's supportive resources, to enable NoK' readiness in caring for the patient and to co-operate with NoK in the care of the patient in the home, captured by the core theme which described the professional support as a continuous process. Conclusions. Next of kin are a supportive resource in the nursing care of patients receiving chronic haemodialysis treatment and professional support for NoK focuses on planning their participation in the care of patients in the home. Relevance to clinical practice. Professional support for NoK should be documented in family focused nursing diagnoses, which would make it possible to search for different types of support. Future research might explore nurses' or NoK's views on carer support.

    Book review: "Developing grounded theory. The second generation"2010In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 5058-Article, book review (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Developing Grounded Theory. The Second Generation is a very useful and clarifying book arisen from a one-day symposium on advances in qualitative methods in Alberta, 2007. The conference was sponsored by the International Institute for Qualitative Methodology (IIQM). For the first time, the students of Barney Glaser and Anselm Strauss, “the second generation” of grounded theory researchers, met to discuss grounded theory and its developments. With the exception of Janice Morse, the authors of this book worked directly with Anselm Strauss and Barney Glaser. In this volume they provide a description of the history, principles and practice of the grounded theory methods.

    Time distribution factors of hospital and home care among chronic haemodialysis patients2004In: EDTNA-ERCA journal, ISSN 1019-083X, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 19-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, many studies are available that focus on haemodialysis; however studies on the time distribution factor involved are lacking. It is therefore important to study the distribution of time, taking into account outpatient care, inpatient care and home care. The aim of the study was to chart over a five-year period, the time distribution factors of hospital care and home care among chronic haemodialysis patients. The design of the study was descriptive, and the data material was drawn from a patient register (N = 61). The data analysis was performed by means of both descriptive and inferential statistics.

    Dancing Together for Social Sustainability from a Life Course Perspective - Integrating Children and Senior Citizens in Action Research Project2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This project has its starting-point in dance project with children and senior citizens. Children and senior citizen have their own health challenges. The Swedish culture does not encourage intergenerational activities in organizations and communities. Intergenerational contacts are in many terms referred to within families, except certain environments such as the educational institutions. Especially, the intergenerational contacts between children and senior citizens are neglected as an important factor in promoting knowledge and health in society. It does not need to be questioned, that both knowledge and health contributes to the sustainability in society. If individuals from different generations have the opportunity to exercise physical activities together, it is likely that it generates positive values for social sustainability. Social constructivism combined with a life course perspective is the fundamental theoretical standpoint for this project.  We will explain the complex matter of how theses processes of “constructed realities” are accomplish before approaching the central ideas of social constructivism in relation to our project.

    The overall aim was to understand the knowledge of the social value of intergenerational physical activities, and how different age groups communicate their experiences in a life course perspective. There were many things we could learn in a life course perspective through activities among children and senior citizens, and how we could make use of this knowledge for implementations for social sustainability in general. This study included a three-stage process qualitative data from 48 stakeholders describing in individuals diaries about daily exercise, collected during one and a half year, with focus groups interviews with 24 children and 24 senior citizens. The third stage dancing activities was conducted, and follow up interviews with both participants. The thematic analysis was used emerge the results. We found a common joy for both children and senior citizens when performing the physical activities. Women believed physical activities improved their inclusion and social networks. The men found that the physical activities improved their wellbeing and health.

    Ways of promoting health to patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease from a nursing perspective in Vietnam: A phenomenographic study2016In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 11, article id 30722Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Health promotion plays an important role in the management of diabetes and chronic kidney disease, especially when the prevalence of the disease is rising in Vietnam. Nurses have been identified to be the front figure in health promotion; however, little is written about how nurses in Vietnam work with these issues. Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe nurses’ conceptions about how health is promoted, with special focus on physically activity, for patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and/or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Individual interviews were done with 25 nurses working at two major hospitals in Hanoi, Vietnam. A phenomenographic approach was used to analyse the interviews. Nurses described how creating positive relationships and supporting patients to take part in their social context promoted health. Health was also promoted by educating patients and relatives about health and disease and by supporting patients to be physically active. The findings indicate that the Vietnamese nursing knowledge about health promotion needs to be gathered, and health promotion needs to be further integrated in the education. Further research is necessary to examine patients’ knowledge and attitudes about health and the efficiency of various health-promoting strategies in the Vietnamese context. © 2016 L. Pham & K. Ziegert

    Mapping family and social space in caring: a metamethod study2008In: Parallel presentations: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, Taylor&Francis , 2008, p. 29-29Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social relations are about how we treat each other. They imply explicit and tacit knowledge, rules of behaviour, and values inherent in specific social spaces. When a family is struck by a life-threatening illness, the individual’s ‘‘life space’’ tends to shrink. This impacts the mutual relationships in the family, as well as the situation in the home. Therefore, there are obvious dialectics between spatial and social dimensions, when close relatives are afflicted by serious illness. This paper explores how research on homecare involves space in analysing social issues.Meta-method analysis was chosen, in order to extend the review format and analyse meta-questions. Meta-synthesis in different research areas and fora involved the examina- tion of a set of qualitative studies. Material was collected using the Cinahl, PubMed and Academic Search data- bases. These were supplemented by the Social Science Index, Sociological Abstract and Science Direct, to explore if aspects of care and space are treated in social science. The sample consisted of 38 articles, displaying a wide variety of methods. Findings suggest that in the fields of caring and sociological research, spatial factors are only implicitly described, and the dynamics of the social and spatial dialectics in home caring relationships seem to be rare. The concept of space in caring is found in a few studies in human geography. The observed absence of a spatial perspective in caring is problematic, since it neglects the fact that relationship and caring are situated in context.

    Förändrad kosthållning genom motiverande samtal: En litteraturstudie2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Unhealthy eating habits are a major problem that causes most diseases in Sweden today. Diet has a major impact on becoming ill and good healthcare is of high importance for av healthier population. Within healthcare Motivational Interviewing is used as a method to increase motivation to make a change. Aim: To describe the patient's experience and change following a MI-based dietary counseling performed by the nurse. Method: General literature study with content analysis. Result: The literature study is based on nine scientific articles that resulted in three main categories with respective subcategories. The result showed that MI counseling can help people change their diet with the help of motivation and support from the nurse, but it also showed barriers to the implementation of a change in diet. The result also took on the physical and cognitive changes that occurred after the MI interview with the nurse. Conclusion: To make a change, motivation is required. Motivation can be positively or negatively affected by various aspects such as the caregiver's implementation of the conversation and the patients own will to change. The result indicated that the patient's change is affected by the quality of the motivational interview.

    Sjuksköterskors erfarenhet kring vårdandet av patienter med akut förvirring2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Acute confusion is a cognitive impairment that occurs suddenly. Affected patients are for example perceived as agitated, restless and apathetic. Patients describe the experience of acute confusion as an abstract reality, this complicates the care process. The aim of this study was to describe nurses’ experience in the care of acutely confused patients. The method was a literature study with a systematic approach where the data processing was inspired by qualitative content analysis. The literature study shows that nurses who meet acute confused patients in wards may experience a lack of time and increased stress. The patient with acute confusion also affects other health careers and patients, requiring more resources in terms of monitoring and nurses with the right skill sets. Nurses are more focused on preserving the safety of the acutely confused patients than the person behind the acute confusion. Nurses’ attitudes towards the acutely confused patients are based on gaining control of the patients through various strategies. Unawareness of acute confusion is displayed by nurses’ inconsistency of the use of evidence-based knowledge. Prioritizing work is necessary to make the work more effective, it also helps the nurse to be at hand for all patients, although, managing and using time more effectively falls at the expense of the acutely confused patients. Good communication and awareness of the ageism that occurs is of importance so that the patients’ experiences become optimal and for reduction of suffering when in or after an acute confusion state.

    Med andras ögon: Hur pedagogik gestaltar sig i omvårdnad2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Human beings who are in need of caring in nursing requires pedagogical learning in the form of support from the nurse facing the issues and challenges they are receiving. How pedagogical learning is designed in different care situations is not yet sufficiently scientifically explored, making it important to map the problem of the lack of pedagogical learning in nursing. The aim was to identify what pedagogical learning is in nursing. The method is a literature review of 8 scientific articles that formed the basis for the result. The results showed six different sub-themes; pedagogical flaws, pedagogical innovation, the nurse, the patient's life-world, pedagogical mutuality and pedagogical care and who formed the main theme "With the eyes of others”. Pedagogic is one of the most important key aspects in nursing in order to initiate a proper care to the patient. In order to integrate pedagogy as part of the care process, more training, knowledge and research in pedagogy is needed and learning how unique nursing situations for the unique patient should be applied.

    ''Det är inte en resursfråga, det är en prioriteringsfråga'': En kvalitativ studie om förvaltningschefers upplevelser av förutsättningar för att bedriva ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det hälsofrämjande ledarskapet fokuserar på friskfaktorer genom att synliggöra och lyfta fram de styrkor som finns på arbetsplatsen. För att kunna skapa en hälsofrämjande arbetsplats behövs det kunskap om hälsofrämjande arbete hos ledarna, det behövs således förutsättningar för chefer att kunna bedriva ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap. Studiens syfte var att belysa hur förvaltningschefer i kommuner i Hallands län upplever förutsättningarna för att bedriva ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap. Den teoretiska referensramen utgår ifrån hälsopromotion med fokus på främjande, hälsofrämjande ledarskap och dess förutsättningar, krav-resursmodellen, kompetens och kompetensutveckling. Studien utgår ifrån ett hermeneutiskt synsätt där slutsatser dragits med induktiv ansats. Metoden i studien baserades på en kvalitativ ansats genom åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer. Studiens resultat har analyserats genom en konventionell innehållsanalys. Analysen resulterade i fyra kategorier: Arbetsform och förutsättningar för ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap som visade chefernas upplevelse av hälsofrämjande ledarskap. Goda möjligheter till stöd i det dagliga arbetet var såväl befintliga som önskvärda stödjande strukturer och resurser inom organisationen. Hanterbara arbetskrav i form av prioritering av resurser där cheferna förmedlade deras upplevda arbetskrav inom organisationen, vilka inte ansågs vara för höga. Vikten av att prioritera resurser och tid låg till grund för ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap. Slutligen var goda förutsättningar för kompetensutveckling och dagligt lärande vilket förekom på såväl individ som gruppnivå. Utifrån resultatet kan slutsatserna dras att cheferna upplevde att det fanns goda förutsättningar för att bedriva ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap i form av stöd, krav och resurser samt kompetensutveckling. Prioritering av resurserna låg till grund för chefernas förutsättningar för att bedriva ett hälsofrämjande ledarskap.

    Abstract [en]

    In today's information society with many impressions and activities people feel stressed. The mental illness is high and the Swedish health care system needs improvement for these patients. Art-making activities are still a relatively unknown area of nursing care. The purpose of this study was to illustrate how art-making activities can affect patients' mental illness and why art-making activities may be important in nursing care. The study was conducted as a literature review in which 15 scientific qualitative studies, quantitative studies and combined studies were included. Art-making can give patients a better mental health by expressing emotions such as fear, hope and strength. Art-making can relieve various symptoms such as pain, anxiety and loss of appetite. The personal development can be seen to increase by strengthening identity, meaningfulness and increased self-confidence. New coping strategies can be developed by focusing on art-making and increased well-being can be experienced as well as the long and short term. Art-making in the healthcare environment can result in an experience of a less clinical atmosphere and the social network is perceived to be strengthened by new relationships created in the context of art. Using art-making activities in nursing care can provide opportunities to relieve patients' traumatic experiences and feelings. An openness to new ideas, wider knowledge and use of evidence-based care can help nurses to promote patient health. More research in art-making linked to care is desirable, both nationally and internationally.

    Abstract [en]

    Pressure ulcer is an injury caused by hospitalizations when sustained pressure over bony prominence or devices for a prolonged period of time pressure ulcer may appear. Critically ill infants and children admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) are at risk of developing pressure ulcer. Patricia Benner’s nursing theory is used as theoretical guideline for this study. The aim of this study was to describe preventing measures against pressure ulcers performed by nurses for infants and children admitted at PICU.  A systematic literature review was conducted and three databases resulting in eleven articles. The result was presented in three categories: follow routines and guidelines, identify associated risk factors for pressure ulcer on patients in the PICU and also practical nursing and tools. The result of this study showed that pressure ulcer can be prevented with guidelines, education and tools. For some patients in the PICU pressure ulcer could not be prevented due to their clinical instability. Hospital staff and board should implement evidence basted pressure ulcer prevention measures. Further research concerning Swedish practice could be needed.

    Att vara eller inte vara fysiskt aktiv bland medelålders män: En litteraturstudie2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Iakttagelser har dock visat en minskad grad av fysisk aktivitet hos befolkningen. Könsskillnader har visats vara en faktor, män och kvinnor har ibland olika motivationskällor till fysisk aktivitet. Syfte : Syftet med den här studien var att beskriva vad som motiverar medelålders män till fysisk aktivitet. Metod : Genom att ha en litteraturstudie som metod var målet att få en fördjupning av det nuvarande kunskapsområdet som berör syftet. Studien har inkluderat 15 stycken artiklar från databaserna: Cinahl, Pubmed, Sciverse och Academic search elite. Artiklarna lästes och genomgick en temaanalys. Resultat : Resultatet delades in i fem teman. Socioekonomi och psykosociala faktorer menar att socioekonomisk tillhörighet och till exempel socialt stöd är betydande faktorer. Närmiljön och dess tillgångar är styrande med tillgängliga parker, cykelbanor etcetera som visats stimulera mäns motionsvanor. Förhållandet till det manliga idealet menar bland annat att det finns förutfattade meningar om hur män ska bete sig och hur detta påverkar deras motivation till fysisk aktivitet. Möjligheter till fysisk aktivitet på arbetet och fritiden visade att ett tungt jobb minskar chansen till motion på fritiden. Vardagsmotion eller bekvämlighet är till stor del styrande av ekonomiska resurser samt om utvecklade cykel och promenadvägar som finns tillgängligt. Implikation: För att främja fysisk aktivitet hos medelålders män bör både yttre och inre faktorer tillgodoses. Mer företag bör överväga att införa hälsovård. Kanske viktigast att ge arbetare i låga socioekonomiska grupper exempelvis förmånliga priser på gymkort. Det rekommenderas upprätthållande av platser såsom cykelbanor och motionsspår, där fysisk aktivitet kan utövas. Åtgärder som riktar sig till att stärka mäns självförtroende och andra inre egenskaper som är viktiga för att främja motivation till fysisk aktivitet hos medelålders män.

    Det är det lilla som gör det stora: -hälsofrämjande åtgärder vid hypertoni2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Hypertension is common in today's society and is therefore considered to have become a national disease. An estimated 1.8 million of Sweden's adult population have hypertension. Hypertension accounts for about 13 percent of the total mortality in the world, and is seen as a risk factor for numerous cardiovascular diseases. Today there are international guidelines for the treatment of hypertension in, England and USA. However, there are no specific Swedish guidelines for treatment of hypertension. The purpose of this study was to elucidate how health interventions can influence blood pressure in people with hypertension. The results of this literature study are based on a review of 16 scientific articles which was based on literature review and order problem. The health-promoting interventions that can affect blood pressure in people with hypertension are highlighted in the results. Such interventions are weight loss, physical activity, diet, alcohol, smoking, stress and support. The effect of health promotion interventions has shown that lowering blood pressure can occur if lifestyle changes are implemented and carried out. A braking in the development of hypertension can lead to health-economic benefits to the community. National guidelines and care programs for the treatment of hypertension should be developed to a braking of hypertension to happen.

    Sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av verksamma faktorer i processorienterad omvårdnadshandledning i grupp, ett år efter avslutad sjuksköterskeutbildning: Nurses' experiences of the active factors in process-oriented clinical group supervision, one year after degree2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Processorienterad omvårdnadshandledning i grupp är ett stöd för studenter att utveckla sin förmåga att hantera komplexa vårdsituationer. Reflektionen har en central roll samt handledarens förhållningsätt. Den omvårdnadsteoretiska förankringen beskrivs som betydelsefull, men det finns beskrivningar att alla handledare inte använder omvårdnad som teoretisk grund. Studiens syfte var att beskriva sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av verksamma faktorer i processorienterad omvårdnadshandledning i grupp, ett år efter avslutad sjuksköterskeutbildning. Analysen har gjort med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys utifrån intervjuer med 18 sjuksköterskor presenteras i fyra kategorier: Handledarens karaktär, Handledningssessionens struktur, Pedagogiska metoder och Reflekterande kommunikation. Resultatet visar att handledarens personliga egenskaper har stor betydelse likaså vikten av att ha ett uppmuntrande förhållningssätt gentemot deltagarna. handledarens engagemang för att skapa trygghet, detta kan medföra att hanledaren kan bli en god rollmodell. En annan viktig faktor är att handledningssessionerna har en tydlig struktur, detta visar sig betydelsefullt för att skapa trygghet och att bibehålla fokus på problemställningarna. Resultatet beskriver olika pedagogiska strategier, såsom rollspel och att använda gruppen för att stödja lärprocesser.  Ytterligare en viktig faktor är att handledningen utgår från ett omvårdnadsteoretiskt perspektiv, då detta fungerar som en kompass i omvårdnadshandledningen. Vikten av ett omvårdnadsteoretiskt perspektiv beskrivs mer implicit i resultatet. Däremot beskrivs vikten av reflekterad kommunikation mer tydligt i materialet.  Reflekterad kommunikation bidrar till studenternas fördjupade kunskaper kring omvårdnadens praktiska genomförande. Ytterligare forskning bör fokuseras på hur det omvårdnadsteoretiska perspektivet kan belysas som en verksam faktor i omvårdnadshandledning

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe nurses' experiences of factors enhancing professional development trough process-oriented group super- vision, one year after completed nursing education. The objective of process-oriented group supervision in nursing care is to support students’ development of their ability to manage complex care situations. The attitude of the supervisor and the students’ willingness to reflect on them- selves have been described as playing key roles in process-oriented group supervision during nursing education. The link to nursing science has also been described as significant by several researchers, but some supervisors are not using nursing science as a foundation in group supervision for nurses. The analysis was completed using a qualitative content analysis method based on interviews with 18 nurses resulting in the general theme “Process oriented pedagogy” which is presented in three categories: Supervisor’s character, Pedagogical strategy and Reflective communication. The findings suggest that the supervisor's personal qualities in combination with an inspiring structure are impor- tant to promote the participants’ reflective communication during the group supervision sessions. Reflective communication supports the students’ development towards a deeper professional knowledge. Further research should focus on the use of nursing science as a foundation in clinical process-oriented group supervision.

    VÄGAR TILL REFLEKTION: Avdelningschefers uppfattningar inom somatisk omvårdnad2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Continuous feedback through reflection can be used as a tool by the department head for leading the development, learning and innovation in nursing work. The aim of the study was to describe the department heads´perceptions of reflection in nursing care by a phenomenographical approach. The analysis of 15 interviews resulted in five description categories of reflection. Knowledge integral reflection captures students´training that can be used in nursing work. Processing creates a continuous thought process in nursing work. Reflection development was reinforced among employees when talking to each orther. Managerial reflection was described as a separate forum in the process manager role. Patient-oriented reflection highlighted the patient´s participation. The conclusion was that department heads used reflection on different levels and in different contexts. Reflection proved important in nursing care. Study findings may help to increase knowledge in order to develop leadership whick leads to beter quality of care and patient safety. Continued research should focus on intervention studies with an emphasis on reflection.

    Abstract [en]

    Denna vårdvetenskapliga jubileumsskrift tar läsaren med på en resa genom den utveckling som skett av ämnet vid forskarutbildning i vårdvetenskap vid Växjö universitet. Många bäckar små… ett talesätt som kan illustrera det gemensamma arbete och den samlade kunskap som ligger bakom denna skrift. I skriften får vi stifta bekantskap med vårdvetenskapen i varierande kontexter alltifrån rättpsykiatri till akut- och hemsjukvård. Sammanställningen av den vårdvetenskapliga forskning som under denna femårsperiod har gjorts på IVOSA visar att vårdvetenskapen är en autonom vetenskap med en tydlig substans eller kärna. I kärnan finns patienten, och ämnet tar sin utgångspunkt i människors existens. Med fokus på människan som är i behov av vård framträder lidande, hälsa och välbefinnande som väsentliga begrepp. I bokens delar fördjupas och kontextualiseras vårdvetenskapen i skiftande vårdande liksom lärande miljöer. En vårdvetenskap med grund i ett patientperspektiv behövs såväl akademiskt som i vården för att anta både dagens och morgondagens utmaningar.
