Abstract [en]

Nordic nursing studies have a strong tradition within the qualitative approach. This approach has been applied to explore the lived experience of critical illness and intensive care therapy from the perspectives of the patient and the patient’s family. In 2003, the Nordic Association for Intensive Care Nursing Research (NOFI) was established by nursing scholars from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. The purpose of NOFI was to encourage research in intensive care nursing in the Nordic countries, to establish a network of intensive care nursing scholars, to exchange research experience and research outcomes among the Nordic research communities, and to increase the visibility of research in intensive care nursing in the Nordic countries. Although the focus was on nursing research, an interdisciplinary approach has also been encouraged with joint research and conference activities. NOFI have arranged biannual conferences for members and other individuals interested in the activities of the network. The venue has rotated among the tree Nordic countries, and the themes of the meetings have been: Intensive Care Unit (ICU) environment and acoustics, relatives of ICU-patients, ways of knowing, sedation, ethics, patient diaries, multimodal interventions, research designs, ICU-delirium, psychometrics, burns, and mechanical ventilation. Other activities have been presentations of newly completed PhD-studies in the Nordic countries. Since 2006, nursing scholars from the three Scandinavian countries have collaborated on a study of diaries written for ICU patients (patient diaries). The three countries share common values, culture and language, which has facilitated the exchange of ideas among the Nordic nurses. Intensive care nursing is a young domain of research. We still need to encourage more scholars within this area to increase our knowledge base, improve the ICU-experience and formalize rehabilitation of post-ICU patients. Intensive care is a collaborative practice and future research should reflect the interdisciplinary aspect of the field.
