    Physical Activity Six Months after a Myocardial Infarction2009In: International Journal of Nursing Practice, ISSN 1322-7114, E-ISSN 1440-172X, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 191-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present study, we wished to explore physical activity in middle-aged patients 6 months after a myocardial infarction and to compare the patients' self-reported activity level with pedometric measures of footsteps/day. The sample comprised 89 patients with myocardial infarction, aged < 40% of the patients were engaged in at least 30 min of physical activity every day. The pedometric physical activity data showed a daily mean number of steps of 6719. The self-report question was correlated with the pedometric registration data. Among myocardial infarction patients, physical activity 6 months after the acute heart attack was insufficient in the majority of patients, both when evaluated with a self-report question and when evaluated with a pedometer. Efforts to increase physical activity after myocardial infarction are warranted.

    In the present study, we wished to explore physical activity in middle-aged patients 6 months after a myocardial infarction and to compare the patients' self-reported activity level with pedometric measures of footsteps/day. The sample comprised 89 patients with myocardial infarction, aged <or= 65 years. The self-report question showed that < 40% of the patients were engaged in at least 30 min of physical activity every day. The pedometric physical activity data showed a daily mean number of steps of 6719. The self-report question was correlated with the pedometric registration data. Among myocardial infarction patients, physical activity 6 months after the acute heart attack was insufficient in the majority of patients, both when evaluated with a self-report question and when evaluated with a pedometer.

    Ethical values in caring encounters on a geriatric ward from the next of kin´s perspective: An interview study2010In: International Journal of Nursing Practice, ISSN 1322-7114, E-ISSN 1440-172X, Vol. 16, no 1, p. 20-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to identify and describe the governing ethical values that next of kin experience in interaction with nurses who care for elderly patients at a geriatric clinic. Interviews with 14 next of kin were conducted and data were analysed by constant comparative analysis. Four categories were identified: receiving, showing respect, facilitating participation and showing professionalism. These categories formed the basis of the core category: ‘Being amenable’, a concept identified in the next of kin's description of the ethical values that they and the elderly patients perceive in the caring encounter. Being amenable means that the nurses are guided by ethical values; taking into account the elderly patient and the next of kin. Nurses' focusing on elderly patients' well-being as a final criterion affects the next of kin and their experience of this fundamental condition for high-quality care seems to be fulfilled.
