Abstract [en]

Background: The aging population and the number of older persons living at home are increasing. Some have extensive needs for care, which leads to increased demands on professionals in home care settings. Professionals’ need to have sufficient competency to promote health and wellbeing among older persons. For sustainable care, there is a need for efficient educational efforts in the home care context. Person-centred communication may increase the quality of care and improve older persons independence.

Aim: To develop, test and evaluate a web based educational intervention on person-centred communication targeting nurse assistants (NA) in home care setting.

Method: A stepwise web based education, consisting of eight modules, was developed and tested. The education was evaluated using both quantitative and qualitative data.

Results: In all, 23 NAs participated in the education. The majority of the NAs (n=21) participated in five or more modules. Overall, the education was experienced as feasible and accessible. Challenges emerged during the time of the intervention, such as time constrains, technical problems, and participants´ engagement.

Conclusion: The web-based education was found to be a feasible way to offer education to home care staff, although successful implementation requires adaptations to the current context. Engagement from managers, especially considering the NAs motivation to complete the education is important for accomplishment by participants.

Implications: This study can contribute to the knowledge regarding how to develop, test and evaluate an educational intervention, and considerations found to be important during the implementation process for success.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this study is to describe young women’s (16–25 years old) experiences of living with existential concerns for which they have sought support from healthcare professionals, teachers, family, or friends, among others. Methods: This phenomenological study is based on a reflective lifeworld research (RLR) approach. Nine young women were interviewed about their experience of living with existential concerns. Results: The results show the essential meaning of the phenomenon of “existential concerns ”that can be described as living a life that is marked in a profound way by a feeling of being lost in an unknown terrain. To further understand the essential meaning, four constituents are described: the unpredictable body, longing for comprehension, playing a game, and longing to share one’s vulnerability. Conclusions: Young women with existential concerns are vulnerable, as they are profoundly influenced by these concerns. They have to navigate through daily life while trying to fit in and to make their situation comprehensible. These young women have a longing to share their existential concerns with a trustworthy person, while at the same time they fear revealing their existential concerns and risking being rejected by others. A lifeworld-led, caring science approach, intertwined with the results of the present study, has the potential to direct caring practice.

Abstract [en]

Background: Person-centred communication is important to assure the quality of home care services and to promote older persons independence and influence over their lives. Previous research indicates challenges regarding communication between professionals and home care recipients, and how to deliver efficient educational efforts in the home care context. Hitherto, research on design and implementation of this type of intervention is scarce.

Aims and objectives: To describe the development and process evaluation of an education intervention in person-centred communication for nursing staff (NS) in home care.

Method: The web-based education consisted of eight modules, including short video based lectures and movies, one group supervision, and reflective assignments. The content was based on previous research of health care communication and person-centred care. Data was collected from multiple sources (web analytics, interviews, evaluation forms, and field notes), before, during and after the implementation, and analysed by a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches.

Results: In all, 23 NS participated in the education. Initial analysis indicate that a majority of the participants completed six or more modules. Overall, the content was experienced as relevant and interesting. The flexibility and accessibility of the web-based format was appreciated, as well as the mix of lectures, short movies, reflective assignments and group supervision. Challenges included developing content relevant to work teams with diverse competence levels and individual differences (e.g. age, language, motivation). Furthermore, time constrains and structure of work emerged as barriers for implementing the education, in some cases adding stress and fragmentation to NS´ work.

Conclusions: This type of intervention seems to be a feasible approach for flexible educations in person-centred communication for NS. Engagement and commitment from managers and team leaders may be key factors in succeeding, with impact on participants´ motivation to fulfil the education.

Abstract [en]

With a common ground in the epistemology of lifeworld phenomenological and hermeneutical approaches, we explored the possibility of understanding existential phenomena in different stages of human life, such as children’s illness and experience of medical procedures, childbirth and breastfeeding and old age. Through various forms of lifeworld theory-based data collection methods, examples of how lifeworld stories can emerge are presented. There is humbleness and an understanding that there may be more to be understood than what may be directly apparent in the story of a patient. This gives rise to the fact that analyses may sometimes need to be further developed with the aid of philosophical examination and interpretation, which open up opportunities to understand what is unspoken and hidden in stories. Such examination and interpretation also make it possible to deepen what is said. The philosophy of existence can help researchers get hold of what does not appear immediately and what is hinted at but not stated directly, and uncover hidden meanings in stories. Such in-depth understanding may have significance for developing caring practice by potentially bridging the dualistic view of human beings as body and soul. Through a lifeworld theory-based research approach, caring that takes into account existential dimensions in people's lives in relation to caring can be developed and stimulated.

Abstract [en]

Introduction:

This paper describes first-line department healthcare professionals’ experiences of conversations with young adults (16–25 years) who express existential concerns. Existential concerns encompass questions about the meaning of life and the choices people must make, and they are sometimes expressed during the period in which a child is becoming an adult. Sometimes the transition to adulthood can be difficult, and many young adults seek support from people in first-line departments, such as primary care providers, youth guidance centre personnel and student health service employees in high schools and universities. Conversations in which existential concerns are recognised may be important for preventing mental illness in the future.

Aim:

The study aimed to describe healthcare professionals’ lived experiences of conversations with young adults who express existential concerns.

Approach and methods:

This qualitative study utilises thematic meaning analysis. Interviews were conducted with healthcare professionals working in first-line departments, and data were analysed based on the principles of reflective lifeworld research. The study followed ethical codes of conduct and conformed to the ethical guidelines adopted by the Swedish Research Council.

Findings:

The results are presented in three themes of meaning: searching for innermost thoughts requires being present, uncertainty about the unpredictable and awakening of one’s own existential concerns.

Conclusions and implications:

Healthcare professionals are affected when young adults express their existential concerns, and they need more support to strengthen their ability to stay present and create inviting atmospheres

Abstract [en]

In the present study, reflective seminars were integrated during a three-year nursing programme in Sweden. The specific characteristics of the reflective seminars are built upon a foundation in lifeworld theory and caringscience. As teaching in higher education demands an academic degree but not necessarily formal pedagogicaleducation, lecturers involved in reflective seminars are often left without guidance concerning what constitutes areflective learning activity in nursing education. The aim of the present study is to describe the lived experienceof guiding reflective seminars during nursing education from the lecturers' perspective. Eight university lecturerswere interviewed. To capture humans’ lived experiences, the present study is imbued with the principles ofreflective lifeworld research. The result indicates that the reflective seminar includes the need for activity,balance and safety, which is further developed through the following constituents: a foundation in caring sciencecontributes to security; guiding the reflection requires continual vigilance; a lack of trust in oneself inhibits theability to guide reflection and closeness to the students. In summary, the result indicates that guiding a reflectiveseminar is an exhausting mission in which the lecturer has to balance the moment according to a multifacetedlevel. Further development of mentoring and introduction to the assignment are needed.

Abstract [en]

Phenomena in caring science are often complex and laden with meanings. Empirical research with the aim of capturing lived experiences is one way of revealing the complexity. Sometimes, however, results from empirical research need to be further discussed. The aim of this presentation is thus to describe the methodological support for the further abstraction of and philosophical examination of empirical findings grounded in caring science and lifeworld phenomenology.  In order to systematize the support procedures, we have used a reflective lifeworld research (RLR) approach. In the first stage, data from several (two or more) empirical results on an essential level are synthesized into a general structure. The second stage can then be a philosophical examination, in which the general structure is discussed in relation to a philosophical text, theory, or concept.

The methodological support will be discussed in relation to an example from empirical research focusing on the phenomenon of older patients’ participation in team meetings. The results from two empirical studies, that indicated the need for a more in-depth examination of the interpersonal relationships when an older patient is present at a team meeting, were further explicated by philosophical examination in the light of Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy.

Core dimensions of the described methodological support are, in accordance with RLR, openness, bridling, and reflection and can be seen as a guiding light in the search for further meanings.
