Abstract [en]

Objective: Mothers who have negative breastfeeding experiences due to initial breastfeeding difficulties are indemanding existential situations. Therefore, it is important for healthcare professionals to identify and addresssuch breastfeeding problems. The aim of this study was to develop an instrument designed to assess existentialaspects of mothers’ initial breastfeeding difficulties and evaluate its psychometric properties.

Methods: This study reports on the development of a new instrument and was carried out in three steps: (1) aquestionnaire about various existential aspects of initial breastfeeding difficulties, based on 66 items derivedfrom two phenomenological studies, was developed; (2) information was collected using the questionnaire; (3)and the resulting data were statistically analysed. Spearman’s correlation coefficient was used to assess comparativevalidity; exploratory factor analysis with principal axis factoring and varimax rotation were used toassess construct validity; and Cronbach’s alfa was used to assess internal consistency and reliability. Threehundred and nine Swedish-speaking mothers aged 20–46 participated in the study.

Results: Correlation and factor analysis of the 66 items revealed that 16 of the items were of psychometric valueand valid. Factor analysis generated three factors that accounted for 62.9% of the total variance: Mother-Child Interdependency, Exposure and Vulnerability and Security and Trust. The instrument shows adequate sensitivity toidentify existential aspects of mothers’ initial breastfeeding difficulties.

Conclusion: The instrument satisfactorily assesses existential aspects of initial breastfeeding difficulties and canbe used as a sensitive tool by healthcare professionals to screen for and identify mothers who have negativebreastfeeding experiences.

Abstract [en]

The authors, with Swedish elementary school students (N = 201), 9–12 years old, examined the potential significance to self-perceived academic competence of students' cross-ethnic friendship ties and prosocial behavior to better understand education's minority achievement gap. A crossed-lagged panel model was tested to investigate potential relationships between these variables over time, while controlling for temporal associations. The results revealed that higher levels of prosocial behavior were related to more positive academic performance six months later. However, higher levels of cross-ethnic friendship did not. The findings further establish the predictive influence of prosocial behavior on academic competence, indicating that this over-time relation is applicable also in the North European context, with its increasingly diverse ethnicity.

Sleep duration and sleeping difficulties among adolescents: exploring associations with school stress, self-perception and technology use

 

Sleeping problems are increasing among adolescents worldwide. This study aimed to describe the prevalence of self-reported sleep duration and sleeping difficulties, as well as to explore their associations with school stress, self-perception, that is how adolescents perceive their appearance and happiness, and technology use among adolescents. Data were collected in 2015 using a questionnaire. A total of 937 ninth grade adolescents, 15–16 years, from a city in western Sweden participated, resulting in a response rate of 83%. The result showed that 55% of the adolescents slept less than the recommended 8 hours per night and 11% had sleeping difficulties. School stress and technology use were associated with short sleep duration. School stress and self-perception were associated with sleeping difficulties. The girls had worse outcomes for sleeping difficulties, school stress, self-perception and technology use than the boys. Based on the results, there is a need for school nurses to implement preventive measures to improve adolescents’ sleep.

Abstract [en]

AIM:

The aim of this study was to investigate how restricted decision making autonomy and conflicting demands impact operational managers' work performance and health.

BACKGROUND:

Managers at operational level (first and second-line managers') in health care organizations are commonly exposed to strain in their work situation with high demands and a challenging work context. Although they play an important role, the knowledge about the causal associations between stressful job demands and their consequences is limited.

METHODS:

A prospective design with questionnaire data collected at two points in time, one year apart, from a sample of operational managers (N = 162) at five Swedish hospitals was used to conduct a structural equation model (SEM) analysis with cross-lagged paths.

RESULTS:

Restricted decision making autonomy was negatively associated with both the managers' health and their managerial work performance over time.

CONCLUSIONS:

Health care managers' work performance and health may be sustained by the top management allowing them a higher degree of autonomy in their decision making.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT:

This study suggests that nursing leaders should create the circumstances for operational managers' to have higher levels of autonomy in their area of responsibility and the freedom to prioritize their managerial workload.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Health status is an independent predictor of mortality, morbidity and functioning in older people. The present study was designed to evaluate the link between socioeconomic status (SES), physical activity (PA), independence (I) and the health status (HS) of older people in Iran, using structural equation modelling.

METHODS: Using computerized randomly selection, a representative sample of 851 75-year-olds living in Tehran (2007-2008), Iran, was included. Participants answered questions regarding indicators of HS, SES and also PA and I through interviews. Both measurement and conceptual models of our hypotheses were tested using Mplus 5. Maximum-likelihood estimation with robust standard errors (MLR estimator), chi-square tests, the goodness of fit index (and degrees of freedom), as well as the Comparative Fit Index (CFI), and the Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RSMEA) were used to evaluate the model fit.

RESULTS: The measurement model yielded a reasonable fit to the data, χ2=110.93, df=38; CFI=0.97; RMSEA=0.047, with 90% C.I.=0.037-0.058. The model fit for the conceptual model was acceptable; χ2=271.64, df=39; CFI=0.91; RMSEA=0.084, with 90% C.I.=0.074-0.093. SES itself was not a direct predictor of HS (β=0.13, p=0.059) but it was a predictor of HS either through affecting PA (β=0.31, p<0.001) or I (β=0.57, p<0.001).

CONCLUSION: Socioeconomic status appeared to influence health status, not directly but through mediating some behavioral and self-confidence aspects including physical activity and independence in ADL.

Abstract [en]

It is known that intimate partner violence (IPV) negatively affects both parental capacity and children’s well-being, but few studies have focused on the experiences of those taking part in family interventions focused on IPV. In this study, 26 parents (16 mothers and 10 fathers) with a history of IPV participated in focus groups concerning their attachment-based group intervention experience in the program Parenting and Violence. The transcripts, subjected to thematic analysis, showed that participants experienced the intervention as supportive and confirming of their role as parents. Parents described feeling more in control, more self-confident, more skilled in communicating, and more able to provide security for their children. However, they also expressed a need for continuing support to maintain their improved parenting strategies.
