Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Amningssvårigheter innebär en risk för tidigt amningsavslut och minskad tillit till den egna förmågan att amma. Kvinnor som ammar sitt första barn kort tid riskerar också amma nästa barn kort tid eller inte alls, likaså tyder befintlig forskning på att amningssvårigheter kan vara en riskfaktor för att inte amma ett framtida barn. För att ytterligare förstå hur tidigare amningssvårigheter påverkar kvinnors framtida amning behövs forskning ur kvinnors perspektiv.

Syftet: Syftet är att förklara och förstå hur tidigare amningssvårigheter påverkar framtida amning så som det erfas av kvinnor.

Metod: Studien utgår från en reflekterande livsvärldsansats med hermeneutisk analysmetod. Datainsamlingen genomfördes i form av en eller flera individuella livsvärldsintervjuer med åtta kvinnor som upplevt stora amningssvårigheter. Totalt 15 intervjuer ingår.

Resultat: Huvudtolkningen visar att tidigare upplevda amningssvårigheter innebär ett existentiellt trauma för den enskilda kvinnan. I traumat utkristalliseras två möjliga vägar för framtiden; antingen utvecklas en amningsrädsla som innebär att framtida amning är otänkbart eller så uppstår en amningslängtan som innebär en möjlighet för amning i framtiden. Huvudtolkningen baseras på följande deltolkningar: Skrämmande tillvaro som måste undvikas, Kroppen som härbärge gör det svårt att glömma, Lockad av närhet och nytta men skrämd av distans, Erfarenhet ger beredskap att ta kommandot, Att våga igen kräver bearbetning samt Omformulering gör det möjligt att gå vidare

.

Konklusion: Kvinnor som upplevt tidigare amningssvårigheter bär med sig en negativ amningsupplevelse i form av ett förkroppsligat minne som etsats sig fast vilket får betydelse för tankar om och möjligheter till amning i framtiden. Det betyder att amningen både berör kvinnor efter avslutad amning och inför en framtida amning

.

Kliniska implikationer: Vård av kvinnor med tidigare amningssvårigheter bör riktas mot ett vårdande där amningsupplevelser bildar utgångspunkten och som möjliggör reflektion kring dessa.

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]

AbstractBackground:  Breastfeeding  support  is  important  for  breastfeeding  mothers;  how-ever, it is less clear how mothers of preterm infants (< 37 gestational weeks) experi-ence breastfeeding support during the first year. Thus, the aim of this study was to describe how mothers of preterm infants in Sweden experience breastfeeding support during the first 12 months after birth.Methods:  This  qualitative  study  used  data  from  151  mothers  from  questionnaires  with open- ended questions and telephone interviews. The data were analyzed using an inductive thematic network analysis with a hermeneutical approach.Results: The results exposed two organizing themes and one global theme. In the organizing  theme  “genuine  support  strengthens,”  the  mothers  described  how  they  were  strengthened  by  being  listened  to  and  met  with  respect,  understanding,  and  knowledge.  The  support  was  individually  adapted  and  included  both  practical  and  emotional  support.  In  the  organizing  theme  “inadequate  support  diminishes,”  the  mothers described how health professionals who were controlling and intrusive di-minished them and how the support they needed was not provided or was inappropri-ate.  Thus,  the  global  theme  “being  thrown  into  a  lottery—dependent  on  the  health  professional  who  provided  breastfeeding  support”  emerged,  meaning  that  the  sup-port received was random in terms of knowledge and support style, depending on the individual health professionals who were available.Conclusion: Breastfeeding support to mothers of preterm infants was highly varia-ble, either constructive or destructive depending on who provided support. This find-ing clearly shows major challenges for health care, which should make breastfeeding support more person- centered, equal, and supportive in accordance with individual needs.

Abstract [en]

Introduction

Nurses have an essential role in acute care situations for preventing adverse events and improve patient outcomes as they typically have most patient contact and are often first to detect acute sickness (Della Ratta, 2016). Education and experience is highlighted as important for developing nurses ability in acute situations (Massey et al., 2017). The aim of this study was to describe what affects novice nurses’ ability to care in acute situations.

Method: Qualitative descriptive design with a phenomenographic approach. Data consisted of 17 interviews of novice nurses working in acute care hospitals in Sweden. Novice are defined as less than 1 year of working experience. The context acute situations following Sterner et al. (2017) findings that acute situations is more than physical deterioration of patients.

Results: Experience of acute situations is perceived as significant for developing the pivotal knowledge and ability to care in acute situations. Clinical practice is not a guarantee for this experience during nurse education. Reasons for this could be that nothing acute happened during allocated shifts. If an acute situation occurred the student could be allocated additional assignments or sent home. The skills obtained in acute situations are perceived as a lottery dependent upon where you get your clinical practice assigned.

Discussion: Experience is perceived as significant for developing ability to care in acute situations. If nurse education can’t facilitate learning of and in acute situations during clinical practice, simulation can be a method for developing the ability. When nursing students train, it is important to include different factors such as time pressure, surprises, contact with different occupational groups and next of kin to facilitate the ability to care in acute situations.

Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of this study is to obtain a deeper understanding of midwives’ lived experiences of caring for new mothers with initial breastfeeding difficulties.

Methods: A reflective lifeworld approach was used. Six midwives were recruited from a hospital in western Sweden. Data were collected via individual lifeworld interviews and analysed using phenomenological methods.

Results: The essential meaning can be described as a midwife’s wish to help new mothers reach their breastfeeding goals by trying to interact with them as individual women in unique breastfeeding situations. This wish constitutes a contradiction to the midwife’s own desire to succeed in enabling mothers to breastfeed and the perceived risk of failure as a midwife if the mothers decide not to breastfeed. This is further described by five constituents: striving to provide individualised care, collegial and personal responsibility both enables and prevents care, a struggle to be sufficient, an uphill struggle and mutual joy becomes the motivation to care.

Conclusions: Caring for new mothers with initial breastfeeding difficulties is a balancing act between the midwife’s personal desire to succeed in enabling mothers to breastfeed, the mothers’ wishes, the infants’ needs, the importance of collective collegial competence and the limitations in the health care organisation. This makes the midwife’s efforts to provide individualised care frustrating and demanding as well as motivating.
