Abstract [en]

Aims and objectivesTo examine the relationship between leisure-time physical activity, health-related quality of life and sense of coherence in women after an acute myocardial infarction, and further to investigate whether these aspects were associated with age. BackgroundPhysical activity and health-related quality of life are vital aspects for patients after an acute myocardial infarction. DesignCross-sectional. MethodAll eligible women diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction received a postal questionnaire two to three months after hospital discharge, and 142 women were included. To measure health-related quality of life and sense of coherence, The MacNew Heart disease questionnaire and the Sense of coherence-13 scale was used. ResultsRespondents reporting at least one type of physical activity had significantly higher health-related quality of life as compared to respondents reporting no kind of physical activity. Respondents reporting physical activity for at least 30minutes twice a week had significantly higher health-related quality of life scores than respondents being active less than twice a week. A weak association was found between physical activity level and sense of coherence. Reduction in physical activity after the acute myocardial infarction was associated with reduced health-related quality of life and sense of coherence. Sense of coherence was significantly associated with age, as respondents 75years and older had significantly higher scores than respondents younger than 75years. ConclusionsPhysical activity, even at a low level, is significantly associated with increased health-related quality of life and to some extent to sense of coherence. Relevance to clinical practiceTailoring women after an acute myocardial infarction about lifestyle changes must include knowledge about the benefits of leisure-time physical activity, and that even a small amount of activity is associated with a better health-related quality of life. The utmost important assignment is to motivate the women for regular physical activity in their leisure-time. Older women need special attention.

Abstract [en]

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common behavioral disorders in children. Children with ADHD have difficulties regarding the regulation of their emotions and activities and of the maintenance of attention and impulse control. Families with children with ADHD encounter many challenges, and the public health nurse is highlighted as helping and supporting these families. The aim of this study was to investigate families with a child having ADHD from the parents' perspective. A cross-sectional study was performed. In total, N = 264 parents of children with ADHD, 217 mothers and 47 fathers (48.2%), responded on a questionnaire regarding psychological distress, family sense of coherence, and family functioning. Parents with ADHD and parents with children not medicated for ADHD seemed most vulnerable. Parents' wellbeing and psychological distress seem to influence family functioning the most, with the behavior of the child with ADHD and support from the community health services had importance.

Abstract [en]

The aim was to investigate relatives of inpatients with severe depression - their perceptions of encountering psychiatric specialist health services and their degree of burden. Sixty-eight relatives recruited via hospital wards and community specialist health centers responded to a questionnaire, with questions from the Quality from the Patients Perspective modified to relatives and the Burden Assessment Scale. Relatives recruited via community specialist health centers perceived less received information and support than those recruited via hospital wards. Higher burden was reported among relatives receiving less information and support than they needed from the psychiatric specialist health services. Healthcare professionals are recommended to give relatives the information and support according to their needs.

Abstract [en]

In Europe, there are an increasing number of persons suffering from depression, which also affectsmany relatives. The burden and health when being the relative of an inpatient suffering fromsevere depression has been less examined. The aim of the study was to describe burden, healthand sense of coherence among relatives of inpatients with severe depression. Furthermore, theaim was to investigate relatives’ burden in relation to their health and sense of coherence. Across-sectional design was performed, with a questionnaire consisting of background questionsand three instruments; Burden Assessment Scale, General Health Questionnaire and Sense of Coherencescale. The participants consisted of 68 relatives recruited from a sample of inpatients diagnosedwith depression in the psychiatric specialist health services in one hospital trust in Norway.The Regional Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics, Norway South East, gaveapproval to the study. The relatives reported burden to a various degree, with some reporting asignificantly greater burden, poorer health and a weaker sense of coherence than others. With regardto subjective burden eight out of ten relatives reported “Worry about future”, and almost sixout of ten were “Upset by change in patient”. Regarding objective burden, more than half the relativesreported having “Less time for friends” and “Reduced leisure time”. In conclusion the relativeswith a high level of burden reported more mental distress, poorer health and weaker senseof coherence than those with lower level of burden. Further research should focus on identificationof factors predicting burden and health of relatives of inpatients with severe depression.

Abstract [en]

Aim

To describe nursing leaders' perceptions of nutrition quality in Swedish stroke wards.

Background

A high risk of undernutrition places great demand on nutritional care in stroke wards. Evidence-based guidelines exist, but healthcare professionals have reported low interest in nutritional care. The Donabedian framework of structure, process and outcome is recommended to monitor and improve nutrition quality.

Method

Using a descriptive cross-sectional design, a web-based questionnaire regarding nutritional care quality was delivered to eligible participants.

Result

Most clinical nursing leaders reported structure indicators, e.g. access to dieticians. Among process indicators, regular assessment of patients' swallowing was most frequently reported in comprehensive stroke wards compared with other stroke wards. Use of outcomes to monitor nutrition quality was not routine. Wards using standard care plans showed significantly better results.

Conclusion

Using the structure, process and outcome framework to examine nutrition quality, quality-improvement needs became visible. To provide high-quality nutrition, all three structure, process and outcome components must be addressed.

Implications for nursing management

The use of care pathways, standard care plans, the Senior Alert registry, as well as systematic use of outcome measures could improve nutrition quality. To assist clinical nursing leaders in managing all aspects of quality, structure, process and outcome can be a valuable framework.

Abstract [en]

In the use of human patient simulation, there is a need for standardized and validated instruments across both national boundaries and cultural conditions. The aim of the present study was to translate and validate the Debriefing Experience Scale in a Norwegian context. The study was conducted as a survey of 146 bachelor’s nursing undergraduates. An expert group, conventional content analysis, the known-group technique and psychometric testing were all being used. The scale seemed to hold a good potential for evaluating debriefing, but would also benefit from reducing the subscales. Due to testing for validity being an ongoing process, there is a need for more studies to draw conclusions about the properties of questionnaire.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe experiences of encountering the psychiatric specialist health services as a relative of an inpatient with severe depression. A qualitative and descriptive design using a phenomenographic approach was chosen. Twentyfour adult relatives, representing different ages, sex, level of education and relationship, were individually interviewed. Approvalwas given by the Regional Committee for Medical and Health Research Ethics, Norway (South East). Three descriptive categoriesemerged: Being in need of help, Being a resource and a participant and Being confident with the health care, with twoconceptions each constituting the relatives’ experiences of the psychiatric specialist health services. When relatives perceive that their next of kin is more severely depressed than the health professionals indicate, they describe it as a battle to obtain help. Relatives have knowledge of – and experience with the depressed person, and wish to share this with the staff. The relatives describe uncertainty as to whether the patient received high-quality care due to varying competence levels among mental health personnel. In conclusion, relatives’ experiences and knowledge about the depressed person were not acknowledged as a matter of course. Thus, psychiatric specialist health services must take relatives’ knowledge into account and initiate collaboration and support.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe and investigate family characteristics in relation to support, behaviour of the child, family functioning and sense of coherence from the parents' perspective in families with a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A further aim was to explore predictors of family functioning.

Methods: The study population consisted of 1964 parents of children with ADHD aged 15 years old and younger. In all, 265 parents responded to a questionnaire (response rate 48.2%; 217 mothers and 48 fathers). In addition to questions about the parents, children, family characteristics and support from health services, the questionnaire included the Family Assessment Device (FAD), the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), Sense of Coherence (SOC) and Social Cohesion and Support Index (SCS). Data were analysed with descriptive, comparative and standard multiple regression analyses.

Results: Parents with ADHD reported a weaker SOC and poorer FAD in the family than parents without ADHD. Parents with children medicated for ADHD were significantly more satisfied with social support (SCS), rated their children's behaviour as less problematic and reported better family functioning. Parents' age, SOC, SCS, SDQ and support from the community health services explained 46.2% of the variation in FAD.

Conclusions: A strong SOC, social support and support from the community health services were strongly associated with a positive effect on family functioning. Parents with ADHD reported a weaker SOC and poorer family functioning than parents without ADHD. This knowledge may be useful and should be taken into account when planning support for such families.

Abstract [en]

Background: Physical activity is recognized as being important in reducing mortality after an acute myocardial infarction. The study aimed to describe younger and older women’s leisure time physical activity after an acute myocardial infarction, their motivations and barriers for engaging in physical activity and to assess aspects associated with referral and attendance in cardiac rehabilitation programmes.

Methods: Women diagnosed with an acute myocardial infarction were consecutively recruited and answered a questionnaire 2-3 months after hospital discharge.

Results: The majority of the respondents (86%) were physically active after their acute myocardial infarction and 34% were physically active 4 days a week for 30 minutes. Respondents 66 years were less likely than respondents < 66 years to report moderate physical activity (39% vs. 58%, p = .03) and more likely to report low physical activity (27% vs. 8%, p < .01). No differences were found between these age groups reporting high physical activity (34% vs. 34%). Respondents 66 years were also less likely than younger respondents to maintain or increase their physical activity after the acute event (59% vs. 76%, p < .01), to be informed about the significance of physical activity while in hospital (61% vs. 80%, p = .01), to be referred to a cardiac rehabilitation programme (49% vs. 75%, p .01) and to attend such a programme (30% vs. 65%, p < .01).

Conclusions: Women’s age was associated with physical activity as well as their possibilities regarding cardiac rehabilitation after an acute myocardial infarction.
