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.

Abstract [en]

Background: Creative strategies are needed in nurse education to integrate theory, practice and lived experiences.Towards that end, reflective seminars, conducted in congruence with reflective lifeworld theory andcaring science, were implemented during a three-year nursing programme. The reflection seminars took placeduring the theoretical parts of education and the clinical placements. Each reflection group consisted of six tonine students, and the seminars were led by a lecturer from the university.

Objectives: This article aims to describe the experiences of learning about caring science by participating inreflective seminars that were integrated into courses during a three-year nursing education programme.

Design: A phenomenological approach was used, and qualitative group interviews were conducted.

Setting: The study was conducted at a university in southern Sweden.

Participants: Twenty three students, 19 women and four men, volunteered to participate. All participants were atthe end of a three-year nurse education programme. Data were collected through four group interviews with fiveto seven participants in each group.

Methods: This study used a reflective lifeworld research approach based on phenomenological philosophy

Results: The findings reveal that nursing students experience reflective seminars as being valuable for theirprofessional development. The result is described in more detail via four meaning units: An obtained awarenessof the value of reflection in clinical practice; Reflection contributes to an approach of thoughtfulness; Caringscience has become second nature, and Reflection as a strength and a challenge at the threshold of a profession.

Conclusions: This study contributes to the understanding of reflective seminars grounded in lifeworld theory as adidactic strategy that enables students to increase their knowledge of caring science and develop their reflectiveskills

Abstract [en]

Background:Managers in clinical education units (CEUs) have the responsibility to facilitate evidence-based environments for both caring and learning. Promoting such environments might be challenging in times of financial constraints and organisation changes.

Objective:The purpose of this study was to describe how managers experience their responsibility to support the caring and learning environments in CEUs. 

Methods:The study method followed the principles of Reflective Lifeworld Research (RLR) grounded in a phenomenological approach. The study was conducted at a hospital in Southern Sweden. Ten first- and second-line managers responsible for CEUs were interviewed. The interviews were conducted as reflective dialogues using an open, and bridled approach.

Results:The results show that clinical education unit managers regard the responsibility to support caring and learning environments as a challenging experience, elucidated in three themes: (1) to have or to take responsibility; (2) cooperation that supports and challenges; and (3) bringing it all together— a daily struggle.

Conclusions:In conclusion, the managers of CEUs need to be aware of the importance of common theoretical grounds for caring and learning. Caring and learning are more likely to be intertwined when responsibility is taken, when collaboration between actors is characterised by respect and when an awareness of the importance of reflection is present. Awareness of the importance of creating opportunities for reflection and mutual collaboration among the different actors involved could lead to improvements in nursing education and, therefore, improved patient care.

Abstract [en]

Few studies focus on how reflection seminars can support the learning of knowledge in caring science when inserted throughout the curriculum. The aim of this study was to describe students’ experiences of participating in reflection seminars, using lifeworld theory and focusing on caring science. A qualitative descriptive study based on interviews was carried out, and ten students between 21 and 33 years of age volunteered to participate. A reflective lifeworld research approach was used. Reflection seminars contribute to developing students’ ability to relate to caring and life. A deeper understanding is obtained when reflection sessions are spread over a longer period and when reflection becomes a process. The process helps caring science to become more natural and useful. Reflective seminaries based on a theoretical foundation contribute to facilitate learning more readily. A good atmosphere pervaded by a lifeworld perspective characterized by openness and thoughtfulness contributes to learning.

Abstract [sv]

Ge sjuksköterskor utrymme att göra kvalificerade bedömningar av patientens omvårdnadsbehov och låt dem också få gehör för de omvårdnadsinterventioner de föreslår. Det skulle inte bara bidra till att minska samvetsstress och arbetsrelaterad ohälsa hos sjuksköterskor utan också bidra till att de stannar i yrket, skriver sex forskare i vårdvetenskap.
