    Criteria nurses use in assessing acute trauma in military emergency care2007In: Accident and Emergency Nursing, ISSN 0965-2302, E-ISSN 1532-9267, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 148-156Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emergency medical care for seriously injured patients in war or warlike situations is highly important when it comes to soldiers’ survival and morale. The Swedish Armed Forces sends nurses, who have limited experience of caring for injured personnel in the field, on a variety of international missions. The aim of this investigation was to identify the kind of criteria nurses rely on when assessing acute trauma and what factors are affecting the emergency care of injured soldiers. A phenomenographic research approach based on interviews was used. The database for the study consists of twelve nurses who served in Bosnia in 1994–1996. The criteria nurses rely on, when assessing acute trauma in emergency care, could be described in terms of domain-specific criteria such as a physiological, an anatomical, a causal and a holistic approach as well as contextual criteria such as being able to communicate, having a sense of belonging, the military environment, the conscript medical orderly and familiarity with health-caring activity. The present study shows that the specific contextual factors affecting emergency care in the field must also be practised before the nurse faces military emergency care situations. This calls for realistic exercises and training programs, where experience from civilian emergency care is interwoven with the knowledge specific to military medical care.

    Being a non-urgent patient at an ECU: a strive to maintain personal integrity2003In: Accident and Emergency Nursing, ISSN 0965-2302, E-ISSN 1532-9267, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 22-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to analyse and describe experiences of being a non-urgent patient in an ECU (emergency care unit). Eleven non-urgent patients were interviewed. The research approach was inductive and interpretative. Seven tentative interpretations and an interpreted whole, i.e., an existential interpretation, revealed that the informants tried to be ‘good’ patients by not demanding much attention from nursing personnel, in an attempt to maintain good relations with the nurses in order to be assured of a positive reception. As health related problems jeopardise personal integrity, patients cannot afford the risk of being looked upon as inappropriate clients in the ECU.

    Experiences of threats and violence in the Swedish ambulance service2002In: Accident and Emergency Nursing, ISSN 0965-2302, E-ISSN 1532-9267, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 127-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ambulance personnel often meet people in a crisis situation that requires a readiness to act, and which takes for granted a broad knowledge in caring, together with an ability to size up the circumstances in each separate incident. The afflicted individual's first contact with a medic in an emergency situation is very often ambulance personnel and this first meeting can involve incidents that may radically change the existing state of things for the ill or injured and, maybe, even for near relatives. Sometimes these situations can lead to threats and acts of violence aimed at the ambulance staff. The aim of the study was to describe how ambulance personnel perceive, how they are subjected to, and are influenced by, threats and violence in their day-to-day work. The empirical study was descriptive and consisted of a questionnaire comprising a total of 13 questions. Answers from the 66 respondents revealed that 53 persons (80.3%) were subjected to threats and/or violence. The majority were of the opinion that the relationship between the paramedic and the patient was most certainly affected when threat or violence is a part of the situation. The study shows that many ambulance personnel have, on occasion, been subjected to one or several threats and/or situations involving the use of violence. The majority regarded this as an unpleasant experience.

    Nurse competence: Advantageous in pre-hospital emergency care?1999In: Accident and Emergency Nursing, ISSN 0965-2302, E-ISSN 1532-9267, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 18-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aspects of the organization and function of pre-hospital emergency care services in western Sweden were assessed by interviewing physicians (n=20) with administrative (n=10) or/and active (n=10) roles in the pre-hospital emergency care field. The data obtained indicate that although the present standard of care is acceptable, there is an obvious need for a more effective organization and the personnel involved should have a higher competence level. Ambulance personnel were not considered to have a high enough competence level. Therefore, a need for more nurses, preferably anaesthesia or intensive care nurses, was expressed. An awareness of the importance of research was noted among the physicians responsible for the services, and the research capability of nurses, along with their general competence in emergency medical service related problems, was considered an important argument for involving more nurses in pre-hospital emergency care. It was thought that by such an approach, a more scientific basis for assessing the efficacy of pre-hospital emergency care could be achieved.

    Role of nurses in pre-hospital emergency care1997In: Accident and Emergency Nursing, ISSN 0965-2302, E-ISSN 1532-9267, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 145-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to increase the quality of pre-hospital emergency care services, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare advocates a switch to clinically better educated professionals. The aim of this study is to assess the attitudes of ambulancemen, paramedics and nurses to each others' professional roles in prehospital emergency care. Ambulancemen and paramedics appreciate nurses' experience in anaesthesia, intensive care and cardiology, but do not see the nurse's role as being ‘team leader’. Both groups of professionals acknowledge the advantage of ambulance crew members having complementing skills, in order to improve the service. There is some rivalry between nurses and ambulancemen and paramedics. However, the increasing number of nurses in pre-hospital emergency care is contributing to the quality of the service by raising the competence level of the team as a whole.
