Abstract [sv]

För kommunerna utgör kostnaderna för personer med demenssjukdom mer än 40 procent av deras totala kostnader för vård och omsorg och vi vet att samhällets insats förväntas öka framgent. Risken är att resurserna inte kommer att räcka till för att bevara en optimal livskvalité. Ett sätt att möta detta är att utnyttja olika tekniska lösningar. Mobila trygghetslarm är en möjliggörande teknologi med stor potential. Huvudsyftet med studien var att se på vilken grund mobila trygghetslarm kan vara ett verktyg som utvecklar vården och omsorgen för personer med demenssjukdom och underlättar för deras familjer i den dagliga tillvaron. Studien fokuserade på personer med demenssjukdom i eget boende.

Abstract [en]

This article describes an innovative practice called Blended Learning Networks (BLNs) whose aim is to enable older people, their families, and care providers to exchange knowledge, learn together, and support each other in local development work so that care is improved for older people. BLNs were established in 31 municipalities, headed up by a local facilitator. They were supported by a national themed network consisting of virtual meetings between local facilitators and national facilitators at the Swedish National Family Care Competence Centre. Design and Methods: An evaluation was conducted to explore the utility of the BLNs so that any improvements to the model could be instigated. Focus group interviews were conducted with members of 9 BLNs, and self-evaluation questions were discussed in 16 BLNs. Limitations are that not all BLN members participated in the evaluation, and local facilitators conducting self-evaluations were not trained in focus group dynamics. Virtual focus groups were carried out with 26 of the 31 local facilitators and with the national facilitators. Results: Participants reported an increased understanding of caregiver issues and of each group’s roles. Of particular value were the stories shared by caregivers and the potential for change locally due to the involvement of decision makers. The practice demanded considerable skills of the local facilitators. An initialeducation for new local facilitators was deemed necessary. Implications: BLNs is a unique practice of community communications and knowledge transfer as it creates partnerships among all key stakeholder groups that act as a catalyst for improving care for older people

Abstract [sv]

På 1980-talet blev ”brukare” ett modeord i offentlig förvaltning och förvaltningsforskning. Termen betecknar den som använder sig av välfärdsservice (jfr. engelskans service user), eller ”slutmottagare” av offentlig nyttighet eller åtgärd. Brukare av välfärdstjänster vet hur hjälp och service fungerar i praktiken och kan därför ge synnerligen viktig återkoppling enligt devisen: ”Den som har skorna på fötterna vet var de skaver”. Välfärdsorganisationer har all anledning att involvera brukare i planering och policyarbete i syfte att utveckla förmågan att göra rätt saker. Det finns inte mycket dokumentation och forskning kring brukarmedverkan i utvecklingsarbete och forskning på välfärdsområdet. I synnerhet saknas kunskap om hur välfärdstjänster tas emot och realiseras i brukarens livssammanhang. En ambition i doktorandkursen ”brukarmedverkan i forskning och utvecklingsarbete inom hälso- och sjukvård, socialt arbete och omsorg” var att samla och presentera kunskaper på området. Kursen genomfördes våren 2009 i ett unikt samarbete mellan Karlstads Universitet, Sheffield University i England, Högskolan i Hedmark i Norge, Hälsohögskolan i Jönköping och Högskolan i Borås/FoU Sjuhärad Välfärd. Texterna i denna bok härrör från kursens föreläsningar och paperarbeten. De ger många exempel på hur brukare kan involveras i forskning och utvecklingsarbete, och presenterar en rad praktiska metoder för brukarsamverkan. Boken rekommenderas till välfärdens politiker och yrkespersoner, till studenter som förbereder sig för välfärdens yrken liksom till forskare och utvecklingsarbetare som vill utveckla samarbete med brukare och brukarorganisationer. Den vänder sig givetvis även till brukare och brukarorganisationer som vill engagera sig i forskning och utvecklingsarbete.

Abstract [en]

ACTION (Assisting Carers using Telematics Interventions to meet Older people’s Needs) is an innovative example of an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) based support service that is currently running in Sweden to help empower older people with chronic conditions and their family carers in their daily lives. The service is outlined and the main evaluation findings are presented. Sirpa explains how ACTION has been of direct benefit in her caring situation. The main lessons learned over a fourteen year period of implementing ACTION in Sweden are highlighted, concluding with the main challenges facing researchers, policy makers and decision makers in the immediate future

Abstract [en]

Background As the global population ages, support for family caregivers who provide the bulk of care to community-dwelling older people is becoming ever more important. However, in many countries, homecare-service practitioners currently do not follow a systematic approach to assessing and responding to caregiver needs. Objectives The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of caregivers and practitioners who took part in a field test of the Family Caregivers Support Agreement (FCSA) tool, a modified version of the Carers Outcome Agreement Tool (COAT) initially developed as the result of an Anglo-Swedish study. Both the COAT and the FCSA are designed to facilitate partnerships between caregivers and practitioners so that needs assessment and subsequent support services are negotiated and agreed so as to meet caregiver expectations. Design and participants A qualitative design was adopted and data were collected through focus groups with six practitioners (nurses and social workers) working in two Local Community Service Centres in the province of Quebec (Canada). These practitioners had previously completed the FCSA tool with 17 primary caregivers of frail elderly relatives who were clients of homecare services. Individual interviews were conducted with the caregivers to explore their experiences. Data were analyzed to identify significant themes, from the perspectives of caregivers and practitioners, which provided insights into their experiences and the strategies used by practitioners to facilitate partnership working. Findings To facilitate meaningful exchanges, practitioners adopted strategies such as sensitive listening and the use of enabling questions to identify and contextualize caregiver needs and to highlight the ability of caregivers to find their own creative solutions to the challenges they face. The caregivers described experiencing a climate of trust that allowed them to express their concerns, to reflect upon their situation and to participate in the development of an action plan for their support. Conclusions The study reaffirms findings from Sweden and UK that the use of a tool such as the FCSA enhances partnership working and creates a caregiver–practitioner relationship based on a genuine alliance. As a result, both parties gain new insights into the caring situation. The approach underpinning the FCSA tool has potential for a more widespread application in different contexts.

Abstract [sv]

Det är vanligt att äldres anhöriga hjälper och vårdar närstående. Utvecklingen av hjälpmedel utgår dock sällan från att även anhöriga ofta använder hjälpmedlen. Syftet med denna skrift är att öka kunskapen om vilka behov och lösningar det finns i dag.
