Abstract [en]

Objective: This study describes empirical ethical values promoting good caring encounters with older patients 65, relatives, and care staff in a geriatric clinic.  Methods: Hermeneutic method was used in a secondary analysis, a re-analysis, of data already collected in three previous studies describing empirical ethical values. Data in the previous studies was collected in a geriatric clinic at a county hospital in a medium-sized city in Sweden. In study I were older patients (n = 22) with registered nurses and enrolled nurses observed during caring encounters (n = 57). Study II was an interview study with older patients´ relatives (n = 14). Study III observed encounters with registered nurses (n = 20) who cared for older patients. Result: Empirical ethical values promoting good caring encounters comprising a welcoming environment, moral actions in physical and social movements, showing respect, participation, security, and a worthy start, middle, and end of caring encounters. Conclusion: Bearing these empirical ethical values in mind should help care staff to focus on patient safety and their own ethical values, with the aim to promote good caring encounters with older patients and relatives. Respect establishes the basis for reciprocity, when people in caring encounters trust one another, security ensues and the fundamentals for patient safety fall into place.

Abstract [en]

Background: Many patients are currently cared for at the end-of-life stage at home, and the number is expected to increase. The patient’s participation is a prerequisite for good care, which also relates to ethical principles and evidence-based action. Aim: To describe adult patients’ experiences of their life situation and their participation in palliative home care. Method: A reflective lifeworld approach and a phenomenological meaning analysis were conducted. Six adult patients in palliative home care were interviewed in Sweden during 2018. Results: One essential meaning and five elements of that meaning describe adult patients’ life situations and participation in their palliative home care. The essential meaning referred to needing and endeavouring to live as usual and taking responsibility for life. The five essential elements were: The home should be my home, where I know who is coming through the door; I should know when help is coming and be included when decisions are made; routines should be maintained, but without booking up tomorrow; accept death, feel hope, and plan for relatives after my death; and be aware that death is imminent, but not know when it will come. Conclusions: Participation in palliative home care can be maintained and improved by caregivers behaving as guests in the patient’s home, building up the patient’s trust, showing consideration for patients and their relatives, promoting patients living everyday life as they previously had, asking about the patient’s habits, and giving patients time and continuity in the caregiving relationship. Education should focus on how to have supportive conversations with a patient who is dying and preparing for death.

Abstract [en]

Background: Managers in elderly care have a complex ethical responsibility to address the needs and preferences of older persons while balancing the conflicting interests and requirements of relatives’ demands and nursing staff’s work environment. In addition, managers must consider laws, guidelines, and organizational conditions that can cause ethical problems and dilemmas that need to be resolved. However, few studies have focused on the role of health care managers in the context of how they relate to and deal with ethical conflicts. Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe ethical problems experienced by managers in elderly care.

Methods: We used a descriptive, interpretative design to analyze textual data from two examinations in leadership courses for managers in elderly care. A simple random selection of 100 out of 345 written exams was made to obtain a manageable amount of data. The data consisted of approximately 300 pages of single-spaced written text. Thematic analysis was used to evaluate the data.

Results: The results show that managers perceive the central ethical conflicts relate to the older persons’ autonomy and values versus their needs and the values of the staff. Additionally, ethical dilemmas arise in relation to the relatives’ perspective of their loved one’s needs and preferences. Legislations, guidelines, and a lack of resources create difficulties when managers perceive these factors as conflicting with the care needs of older persons.

Conclusion: Managers in elderly care experience ethical conflicts that arise as unavoidable and perennial values conflicts, poorly substantiated values, and problematic organizational conditions. Structured approaches for identifying, reflecting on, and assessing ethical problems in the organization should therefore be implemented

Abstract [en]

Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a prevalent disease as with its symptom and treatment gives a burden for the affected person, family, health care and finances. Today the knowledge and understanding are sparse regarding COPD affected person´s own lived experiences about the symptom burden and its effect on their daily life.  Due to this knowledge gap the aim of this study was to identify and describe the symptom burden and its effect on daily life in people with COPD based on their own lived experiences.

Subject and Method: Eleven males and fourteen females in GOLD stage III and IV within an age of 58-82 years were interviewed. An interview guide guided the face-to-face interviews. Data was analyzed with Thematic Analysis following the six steps according to Braun and Clarke.

Results: The result show one theme; An altered everyday life. The altered everyday life lead to a need of support to handle the everyday life and  different strategies to live as desired. Persons with COPD need to take the day as it comes dependent on the status of the day. The life is not easy to plan, and the day must be taken as it comes. The life is handled with strategies in breathing techniques, take care of the home and garden as well as the emotions. Support from the next of kin, society and the health care is important.

Conclusion: This study provides insight in that persons with COPD in stage III and IV have an altered life caused by the symptom burden. They must struggle with strategies to handle everyday life. There is a need of support from next of kin and society to facilitate life, but this support needs to be well-balanced.

Abstract [sv]

Urininkontinens är ett problem för äldre personer och tenderar öka då äldre personer flyttar in på vård- och omsorgsboende. Efter inflyttning ska en vård- och genomförandeplan upprättas, gällande insatser som personen är i behov av. På vilket sätt journalförs och dokumenteras personens urininkontinens i vårdplanen? Hur är omsorgsbehovet i genomförandeplanen utformat, och hur relateras vårdplanen till genomförandeplanen?  Det var frågor som författarna nedan ställde sig i en studie genomförd inom två kommuner i Västra Sverige

Abstract

People with COPD are affected by symptom burden as it has an impact on their daily lives. There are few studies to be found about people with COPD and their own experiences of living with the disease.

The aim of this study was to identify and describe the symptom burden in people with COPD based on their own lived experiences. This was a qualitative study, interviewing 25 people with COPD in stages III and IV.

People with COPD have a substantial symptom burden that affects their daily lives.

There are several strategies to manage everyday life and reduce the symptom burden

Abstract [en]

Background:Nurses working in Home health care (HHC) are facing major challenges when more advanced care and treatment are performing in the patient's home. The aim of this study was to explore how nurses experiencing their competencies in HHC. 

Methods:This study has a qualitative and explorative design. Ten nurses were interviewed and data were analysed by content analysis.

Results:The themes “Being a capable nurse”, “Being a useful nurse” and “Being a subordinate and dependent nurse” were identified. Nurses want to be capable to take care of patients, develop their competencies and perform their duties in the way that are requested. They also want to be useful in their work and providing good and safe HHC. Finally, nurses want to improve the care in HHC with their competencies. Simultaneously, they are subordinate and dependent in the relation with their manager and manager's interest to encourage nurses’ competence development.

Conclusions:Nurses in HHC are responsible for many seriously ill patients and they want to contribute to a good and safe patient care. To maintain patient safety, reduce the risk for burnout and staff turnover as well as to contribute to a sustainable development of the work, strategies for transfer competencies between nurses and efforts for competence development are needed.

Abstract [en]

A reflective team (RT) is a team of professional carers who reflect on a specific caring issue under the direction of an RT leader. The goal for the reflective process is to accomplish care improvement based on research and proven experience, and the first step is to reflect upon the competence that already exists in the context where RT takes place. This study aims to bring previous unarticulated competence for dementia care to the surface, after it has been reflected during RT sessions. Ten staff nurses who work close to patients with dementia and attend RT sessions on regular basis were interviewed about their competence for dementia care. Through a phenomenographic analyze two qualitatively separated categories emerged; general caring skills and specific dementia caring skills. It is concluded that specific skills for dementia care build on general caring skills, and that tacit knowledge can emerge to proven experience when it has been reflected in RT.
