Abstract [en]

The participation of patients in their treatment and care is perceived as desirable; however, patients with mental illnesses experience limited opportunities to participate in their own care. As nurses play a key role in taking care of patients with mental illnesses, this study aimed to investigate how nurses within psychiatric care settings experience patients’ participation and howthey act to increase it. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight registered nurses, four of whom worked in apsychiatric institutional care setting and four of whom worked with outpatients. Data were analysed using a qualitative content analysis approach. The analysis identified a theme: a caring relationship is a prerequisite for patient participation. This theme wa sfurther developed through five subthemes. The findings illustrate critical aspects of the caring relationship by which the nurse–patient relationship can either facilitate or impede patient participation. A caring relationship builds trust and increases the patient’s sense of responsibility for their own condition. Because patients with mental illness are cared for in many different contexts, the results of the present study have implications for a broad range of healthcare environments.

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]

Aim: The aim of this paper was to discuss how to understand and undertake thematic analysis based on descriptive phenomenology. Methodological principles to guide the process of analysis are offered grounded on phenomenological philosophy. This is further discussed in relation to how scientific rigour and validity can be achieved.

Design: This is a discursive article on thematic analysis based on descriptive phenomenology.

Results: This paper takes thematic analysis based on a descriptive phenomenological tradition forward and provides a useful description on how to undertake the analysis. Ontological and epistemological foundations of descriptive phenomenology are outlined. Methodological principles are explained to guide the process of analysis, as well as help to understand validity and rigour. Researchers and students in nursing and midwifery conducting qualitative research need comprehensible and valid methods to analyse the meaning of lived experiences and organize data in meaningful ways.

Abstract [en]

Background: In this study reflective seminars, conducted in congruence with reflective lifeworld theory and caring science, were implemented during a three-year nursing programme. Each reflection group consisted of six to nine students, and the seminars were led by a lecturer from the university. Teaching in higher education demands a variety of competencies, especially in areas where theoretical knowledge are closely connected to practical wisdom.

Aim: The aim of this presentation is to describe the lived experience of guiding reflective seminaries during nursing education from the lecturers’ perspective.

Method: Eight university lecturers were interviewed. The data analysis follows the principles of reflective lifeworld research.

Result: Guiding students towards reflection is a challenging task, which demands absolutely presence in the moment. A reflective seminary can be even more complex when the seminary is part of an examination. To still focus on reflection, while at the same time assure that the students have suitable knowledges, is an act of balance. The intersubjective relation has to be guarded and leave no one invisible. Space has to be created, so that everyone present gets attention. Guiding students through reflective seminaries is an exhausting mission in which the lecturer has to balance the moment according to a multifaceted level.  

Conclusion: Despite the challenges addressed, the reflective seminary is often experienced as enriching, contributing to further understanding and enables students to increase their knowledge of caring science and develop their reflective skills.  In the situation an approach of curiosity, presence and courage are equally important as theoretical knowledge.

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.
