    Om polisen och vetenskapen: två föreläsningar2023Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Texterna i detta nummer av Skrifter från Akademin för polisiärt arbete bygger på två föreläsningar. I den första, meddelad i samband med en intern konferens på Varbergs Stadshotell, reflekterar jag kring några grundfrågor, såsom ”Varför bygger vi upp en forskningsverksamhet?” eller ”Vad menar vi med forskning?” I den andra, som hållits på introduktionskursen till det nya kandidatprogrammet i polisiärt arbete vid Högskolan i Borås, gör jag några observationer om nyttan av vetenskapen – för polisen. Mina föreläsningar hölls i augusti och september 2022. Manuskripten har bearbetats inför publicering. Några mindre ändringar har gjorts, vissa upprepningar har strukits och referenser lagts till, men den talade stilen har behållits.

    Västsvensk polisforskning: en katalog2023Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Den 19 juni (2023) samlades poliser och forskare från Högskolan i Borås, Chalmers Tekniska Högskola och Göteborgs universitet för att undersöka möjligheterna att bilda ett västsvenskt nätverk för polisforskning. Att identifiera vad som menas med polisforskning är svårt. Begreppet är omdebatterat i både Sverige och internationellt. Vi kommer därför inte heller att ge någon definition i föreliggande publikation, utan låta begreppet vara öppet och inkludera en bred kategori av presentationer. [...]

    För att skapa en naturlig brygga mellan forskning och polisiär praktik krävs samarbete. Ett steg i den riktningen är att identifiera och sammanställa forskare som bedriver forskning som direkt eller indirekt relaterar till den verklighet som Sveriges poliser och Polismyndigheten är en del av. Det är vår förhoppning att mötet i Borås tillsammans med denna katalog kan skapa ett sammanhang för att underlätta informationsutbyten, undervisning, skrivande av forskningsansökningar och sampublikationer, och på det viset vara till nytta för Polismyndigheten och utbildningen av framtida poliser i Sverige.

    Polisens barnskyddsarbete när barn far illa i hemmiljön2024In: Nordisk socialrättslig tidskrift, ISSN 2000-6500, Vol. 37, p. 35-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Unfortunately, the police have daily encounters with children and young people that for some reason are in harm’s way. The article deals with the question of temporary decision making by the police as a tool to protect children and young people. The Swedish Police Act (polislagen) enables the police to make compulsory decisions temporarily with the purpose of handing over the child to a legal guardian or the social services. The legal provision is described as a tool for child protection and can also be seen as a tool to ensure the rights of the child and the best interest of the child. However, the present article explores the scope of the legal provision and finds that it is only applicable with regards to the behavior of the child. It does not protect children who are in harm’s way due to the behavior of the parent or the legal guardian. The article argues that there is a need to review the Swedish Police Act to strengthen children’s rights and fulfill Sweden’s obligations according to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

    A systematic review of direct preference measurements in health states treated with plastic surgery2021In: Journal of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery, ISSN 2000-656X, E-ISSN 2000-6764Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One way to compare health care needs and outcomes on common scales is by estimating the strength of preferences or willingness-to-pay (WTP). The aim of this study was to review directly measured preference values and WTP estimates for health states treated by plastic surgery. The included articles had to meet the criteria defined in the SPIDER (Sample, Phenomenon of Interest, Design, Evaluation, Research type). Relevant databases were searched using predetermined strings. Data were extracted in a standardised manner. Included studies were appraised according to the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach for rating the importance of outcomes. In total, 213 abstracts were retrieved. Of these, 179 did not meet the inclusion criteria and were excluded, leaving 34 studies in the review. The risk of bias was considered moderate in four studies and serious in the rest. The overall certainty of evidence for directly measured preference values and WTP estimates for health states treated by plastic surgery is low (Grade ƟƟОО). The lowest preference scores were generally elicited for facial defects/anomalies and the highest for excess skin after massive weight loss. Scientific knowledge about preferences and the resulting health gains might play an essential role in deciding which procedures should be considered for public funding or rather rationed within the system. Better quality studies are required to allow for such applications.

    Ledarskap under coronakrisen inom restaurangbranschen2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Covid-19 pandemic has had a big impact on our society. In Sweden the restaurant industry is one of the most affected industries. In a crisis like this it is required that leaders act to ensure that the organization survives. The leader is the one who can affect the organization in all aspects, from financial decisions to personnel management. Therefore, the leaders carry a big responsibility on their shoulders. The purpose with this study is to investigate how a crisis like Covid-19 affects leadership within the restaurant industry and what changes leaders have made to be able to deal with the pandemic. This study will hopefully contribute to increased understanding on how leadership has changed during the Covid-19 pandemic and what effects it has had. The collected data in this study will hopefully be explained by three different leadership styles. The study has been implemented with a qualitative method through semi structured interviews with leaders within the restaurant industry. The result of this study shows differences and changes that have taken place in the leadership of the leaders who have been interviewed. All interviews have been interpreted and compared with the study’s theoretical framework. A crisis such as the Covid-19 pandemic has had a major effect on organizational cohesion and employee motivation. This has resulted in a focus directed towards the human factor of the leadership. This study is written in Swedish.

    Interpretation of the SafeGrowth method from a police perspective—Possibilities and hindrances in local crime prevention initiatives2023In: Journal of Community Safety and Well-Being, E-ISSN 2371-4298, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 176-180Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the focus is on the crime prevention method SafeGrowth and its implementation in Drottninghög, Sweden. We highlight the police perspective on the implementation of SafeGrowth in Drottninghög, a risk area in Helsingborg, Sweden. Contrary to ordinary crime prevention programmes, the police are not the leading actors in the SafeGrowth process; instead, they join, as an equal party, the residents and other actors in the project. This article is partly the result of a process evaluation conducted between August 2021 and October 2022. The data consists of a focus group interview and an on-site visit and was compiled in October 2022. In the analysis, three themes related to the police perspective are identified: (1) the relationship between SafeGrowth, the area’s crime problem, and evidence-based policing; (2) the contribution of SafeGrowth in terms of collective efficacy, and (3) problems related to evaluating SafeGrowth within the area. In the results, it becomes clear that, from a police perspective, the implementation of SafeGrowth may become problematic. The problems pertain to the selection of both areas and local problems to work with, the conjunction of different descriptions of realities, and organization within the project. For SafeGrowth to succeed in Drottninghög and similar areas, police perspectives must be included more clearly in order to facilitate cooperation. Despite these problems, we identified that a major advantage of the SafeGrowth method was its contribution to collective efficacy in the area, which, in turn, can be helpful to everyday police work in Drottninghög.

    Be prepared and do the best you can: a focus group study with staff on the care environment at Swedish secure youth homes2023In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 18, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the care environment of secure youth homes run by the Swedish National Board of Institutional Care, where youths up to 21 years old are placed according to law due to extensive care needs or sentences.

     

    Purpose

    This study examined staff members’ experiences of the institutional care environment within secure youth homes.

     

    Methods

    Data were collected through three focus group discussions with 17 staff members at two secure youth homes. Subsequently, a thematic analysis was conducted.

     

    Results

    The analysis indicated two main themes: risk management and damage control in a restricted environment and compensating and reconstructing ordinariness—trying to make the best of it; each theme had three subthemes. The care environment seems to be experienced by staff as characterized by conflicting demands, thus constituting a gap between needs and what is possible to achieve—a balancing act that constitutes a constant struggle.

     

    Conclusions

    The staff members’ constant struggle could be interpreted as conflicting moral and instrumental demands; they know what the youths need, but the environment of the secure youth homes demands the decorous behaviour of sociomaterial control practices—rather than care practices.

    Patient experience of implant loss after immediate breast reconstruction: An interpretative phenomenological analysis2023In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 44, no 1, p. 61-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) is an integral part of modern breast cancer treatment. Our aim was to investigate patient experience with implant loss after IBR by using interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA). We conducted semi-structured interviews with eight informants. We analyzed data according to the IPA flexible seven-stage process and four main themes were developed: immediate breast reconstruction as the indisputable choice, a difficult experience, an altered body: redefining normality, and trying to cope. The experience of implant loss appears to affect women for many years and might overshadow some of the benefits of IBR.
