Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe and compare perceptions of critical thinking, attitudes to and availability of research,research utilization and barriers to this among nursing students in Scandinavia and Indonesia. Data were collected at thebeginning, middle and end of education from nursing students in Norway, Sweden (bachelor's diploma) and Banda Aceh(bachelor's diploma). Critical Thinking and Research Utilization Questionnaires were used along with the Barrier Scale.Descriptive analyses, comparisons between and within groups were performed. At the end of education, all samples exhibitedpositive attitudes to research and the main barrier was related to the setting. Scandinavian students reported higher criticalthinking. Indonesian students perceived greater barriers on two Barrier subscales. No differences were found between thesamples regarding research utilization. Significant changes over time varied among the samples except for the Norwegiansample. Indonesian students (diploma) exhibited most changes over time. Teachers must support nursing students to strengthentheir critical thinking ability and develop professional competence.

Abstract [en]

Objective: (a) to psychometrically test the Early Labour Experience Questionnaire (ELEQ) among both primi- and multiparous women giving birth in a Swedish setting, and (b) to describe and compare their experiences during early labour in relation to background characteristics. Design: a cross-sectional study. Setting: a county in Sweden. Participants: primi- and multiparous women with a spontaneous onset of labour after gestational week 37 + 0. In total, n = 1193 women were invited, and n = 754 responded the questionnaire, with a final total of n = 344 primi and n = 410 multiparous women. Methods: the ELEQ was translated with cross-cultural adaptation. The validity was determined using exploratory factor analysis with principal axis factoring analyses. Reliability was estimated from the internal consistency using Cronbach's alpha. The relationship between the questionnaire and the demographic characteristics of the participating women were analysed using ANOVA and t-test. Findings: an explorative factor analysis showed a three-factor solution for primiparas women (SWE-ELEQ-PP) consist of 23 items and a stable factor structure that explained 49.2% of the total variance with sufficient reliability coefficients (0.81–0.86). A four-factor solution for multiparous women (SWE-ELEQ-MP) consist of 22 items, with 52.62% of the total variance explained and with adequate internal consistency reliability coefficients (0.77–0.86) for three factors and relatively low stability (0.62) for the fourth factor with two items. Primiparous women scored significantly higher on items about feeling confused, and significantly lower on some items measuring emotional wellbeing and perceptions of midwifery care compared to multiparous women. Primiparous women with longer early labour (>18 h), scored significantly lower on the perceptions of midwifery care. Primi- and multiparous women who were dissatisfied with their telephone conversation or with not being admitted during early labour, scored significantly lower on emotional wellbeing, higher regarding emotional distress, and significantly lower about perceptions of midwifery care. Key conclusions: the SWE-ELEQ-PP and SWE-ELEQ-MP are considered valid questionnaires for use in a Swedish setting. Differences exist between parity and the factor structure and experiences in early labour vary. Women less content with early labour management decisions rated perceived midwifery care lower regardless of parity. Implication for practice: the questionnaire can be used to evaluate early labour care in a Swedish setting. The result suggests that differences according to parity exist and should be addressed when managing early labour care and a more individualised approach requires considerations.

Abstract [en]

The European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire (HLS-EU-Q47) is widely used in assessing health literacy (HL). There has been some controversy whether the comprehensive HLS-EU-Q47 data, reflecting a conceptual model of four cognitive domains across three health domains (i.e. 12 subscales), fit unidimensional Rasch models. Still, the HLS-EU-Q47 raw score is commonly interpreted as a sufficient statistic. Combining Rasch modelling and confirmatory factor analysis, we reduced the 47 item scale to a parsimonious 12 item scale that meets the assumptions and requirements of objective measurement while offering a clinically feasible HL screening tool. This paper aims at (1) evaluating the psychometric properties of the HLS-EU-Q47 and associated short versions in a large Norwegian sample, and (2) establishing a short version (HLS-Q12) with sufficient psychometric properties.MethodsUsing computer-assisted telephone interviews during November 2014, data were collected from 900 randomly sampled individuals aged 16 and over. The data were analysed using the partial credit parameterization of the unidimensional polytomous Rasch model (PRM) and the 'between-item' multidimensional PRM, and by using one-factorial and multi-factorial confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) with categorical variables.ResultsUsing likelihood-ratio tests to compare data-model fit for nested models, we found that the observed HLS-EU-Q47 data were more likely under a 12-dimensional Rasch model than under a three- or a one-dimensional Rasch model. Several of the 12 theoretically defined subscales suffered from low reliability owing to few items. Excluding poorly discriminating items, items displaying differential item functioning and redundant items violating the assumption of local independency, a parsimonious 12-item HLS-Q12 scale is suggested. The HLS-Q12 displayed acceptable fit to the unidimensional Rasch model and achieved acceptable goodness-of-fit indexes using CFA.ConclusionsUnlike the HLS-EU-Q47 data, the parsimonious 12-item version (HLS-Q12) meets the assumptions and the requirements of objective measurement while offering clinically feasible screening without applying advanced psychometric methods on site. To avoid invalid measures of HL using the HLS-EU-Q47, we suggest using the HLS-Q12. Valid measures are particularly important in studies aiming to explain the variance in the latent trait HL, and explore the relation between HL and health outcomes with the purpose of informing policy makers.

Abstract [en]

Nursing students need an understanding of how nurses care for people’s health from a global perspective. The aim of this studywas to explore how nurses can contribute to health from the perspectives of first-year nursing students in Scandinavia (Sweden,Norway) and Indonesia. Data were collected using an open-ended question about nurses’ contribution to health, and analysedusing qualitative content analysis. Three common categories emerged: ‘Promoting health and preventing disease’, ‘Performingcare and treatment’, ‘Establishing a relationship with patients and being compassionate’. ‘Possessing and implementing knowledgeand skills’ was common to Norway and Indonesia. ‘Being a team member’ was emphasised by the Indonesian participants.The Norwegian participants focused on health promotion, whereas those from Indonesia prioritised disease prevention. TheScandinavian participants emphasised individuality, while those from Indonesia focused on the community. The findings indicatethat nursing education should take account of different cultures and include student exchange programmes.

Abstract [en]

Background: There is a lack of knowledge about oral care among older people living in short-term care (STC) units and how the quality of oral care provided by nursing staff is perceived by the older people. Aim: To (i) describe person-related conditions among older people in STC, (ii) describe and compare perceptions of the quality of oral care (including perceptions of care received and the subjective importance of such care), within and between older people who have the ability to perform oral self-care and those who are dependent on help with oral care and (iii) examine the relationship between person-related conditions and the quality of oral care. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 391 older people in STC units in Sweden based on self-reported questionnaire and clinical assessments. Results: The older people were assessed as having normal oral health (2%), moderate oral health problems (78%) or severe oral health problems (20%). When comparing older people's perceptions of quality of oral care in terms of perceived reality and subjective importance, significant differences appeared within and between groups. Psychological well-being had a significant relationship with perception of the quality of oral care (both perceived reality and subjective importance), and gender and oral health status had a significant relationship with subjective importance. Conclusions: Older people's perceptions of areas for improvement regarding quality of oral care is a new and important knowledge for nursing staff in STC units. Older people want personalised information regarding oral health and oral care. Registered Nurses who take the responsibility in nursing care for older people's oral health may avoid unnecessary suffering by older people caused by oral health problems. Implications for practice: Older people's perspective is an important component for quality work and might lead to improvements in the quality of oral care in STC. © 2018 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Abstract [en]

The prevalence of a prolonged latent phase of labor has been described as ranging from 5% to 6.5% in previous research. The aim of this study was to describe the prevalence of the prolonged latent phase of 18 hours or more, based on women's report, in women intending vaginal birth and who had spontaneous onset of labor. An additional aim was to compare the incidence of obstetric interventions, and the labor and neonatal outcomes in women with and without a prolonged latent phase.

METHODS:

A descriptive and comparative study was performed in a mid-sized hospital in western Sweden. The sample consisted of 1343 birth records of women who intended vaginal births and who had spontaneous onset of labor at 37 or more weeks' gestation during a one-year period (2013-2014). Background characteristics, obstetric interventions, and labor and neonatal outcomes were compared between women with latent phases lasting less than 18 hours and 18 hours or more, based on women's self-report. Odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals were calculated for the different exposure variables.

A prolonged latent phase lasting 18 hours or more occurred in 23% of all births analyzed (n = 1343). A prolonged latent phase was more common among nulliparous women (29.2%) but also common for multiparous women (17%). Nulliparous and multiparous women who experienced a prolonged latent phase were more often exposed to amniotomy during latent phase. For nulliparous women, the adjusted odds ratio (aOR) was 11.57 (95% confidence interval [CI], 5.25-25.51) and for multiparous women the aOR was 18.73 (95% CI, 9.06-38.69). Similarly, amniotomy during active phase was more common for both nulliparous and multiparous women who experienced a prolonged latent phase (aOR, 4.05; 95% CI, 2.53-6.47 and aOR, 3.93; 95% CI, 2.43-6.37, respectively). Women with latent phases of 18 hours or more, more often experienced augmentation of labor during all phases, especially during latent phase. For nulliparous women, the aOR was 10.13 (95% CI, 2.82-36.39) and for multiparous women, aOR was11.9 (95% CI, 3.69-38.71). A prolonged latent phase was associated with more instrumental vaginal births for multiparas (aOR, 2.58; 95% CI, 1.27-5.26) and emergency cesarean regardless of parity (nulliparous women: aOR, 3.21; 95% CI, 1.08-9.50 and multiparous women: aOR, 3.93; 95% CI, 1.67-9.26).

Based on women's self-report, the prevalence of a prolonged latent phase in women at term who planned a vaginal birth and had spontaneous onset of labor was higher than previously reported. Women with a prolonged latent phase were more likely to receive obstetric interventions. Assisted vaginal birth was more common for nulliparous women with prolonged latent phase and emergency cesarean occurred more frequently for both nulliparous women and multiparous women with a prolonged latent phase.

Abstract [en]

Background:Little is known about the combination of person- and organization- related conditions and the relationshipswith patients'perspectives of care quality. Such a combination could contribute knowledge reflecting the complexity ofclinical practice, and enhance individualized care. The aim wasto investigate the relationships between the combination ofperson- and organization-related conditions and patients'perceptions of palliative care quality.Methods:A cross-sectional study, including 191 patients in the latepalliative phase (73% response rate) admitted to hospiceinpatient care (n= 72), hospice day care (n= 51), palliative units in nursing homes (n= 30) and home care (n=38),wasconducted between November 2013 and December 2014, using the instrument Quality from the Patients'Perspectivespecific to palliative care (QPP-PC). Data were analysed, using analysis of covariance, to explore the amount of the variancein the dependent variables (QPP-PC) that could be explained by combination of the independent variables–Person- andorganization-related conditions,−while controlling for differences in covariates.Results:Patients scored the care received and the subjective importance as moderate to high. The combination of person-and organization - related conditions revealed that patients with a high sense of coherence, lower age (person–relatedconditions) and being in a ward with access to and availabilityof physicians (organization-related condition) might beassociated with significantly higher scores for the quality ofcare received. Gender (women), daily contact with family andfriends, and low health-related qualityof life (person-related conditions) might be associated with higher scores forsubjective importance of the aspects of care quality.Conclusion:Healthcare personnel, leaders and policy makers need to pay attention to person- and organization-relatedconditions in order to provide person-centered palliative care ofhigh quality. Further studies from palliative care contexts areneeded to confirm the findings and to investigate additional organizational factors that might influence patients'perceptions of care quality.

Abstract [en]

AIM: To validate the European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire (HLS-EU-Q47) in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

BACKGROUND: The HLS-EU-Q47 latent variable is outlined in a framework with four cognitive domains integrated in three health domains, implying 12 theoretically defined subscales. Valid and reliable health literacy measurers are crucial to effectively adapt health communication and education to individuals and groups of patients.

DESIGN: Cross-sectional study applying confirmatory latent trait analyses.

METHODS: Using a paper-and-pencil self-administered approach, 388 adults responded in March 2015. The data were analysed using the Rasch methodology and confirmatory factor analysis.

RESULTS: Response violation and trait violation (multidimensionality) of local independence were identified. Fitting the 'multidimensional random coefficients multinomial logit' model, 1-, 3- and 12-dimensional Rasch models were applied and compared. Poor model fit and differential item functioning were present in some items and several subscales suffered from poor targeting and low reliability. Despite multidimensionality in the data, we did not observe any unordered response categories.

CONCLUSION: Interpreting the domains as distinct but related latent dimensions, the data fit a 12-dimensional Rasch model and a 12-factor confirmatory factor model best. Therefore, the analyses did not support the estimation of one overall 'health literacy score'. To support the plausibility of claims based on the HLS-EU score(s), we suggest: removing the health care aspect to reduce the magnitude of multidimensionality; rejecting redundant items to confine response dependency; adding 'harder' items and applying a six-point rating scale to improve subscale targeting and reliability; and revising items to improve model fit.

Abstract [en]

Background: Nursing competence is of significant importance for patient care. Newly graduated nursing students rate their competence as high. However, the impact of different designs of nursing curricula on nursing students' self-reported nursing competence areas is seldom reported. Objectives: To compare newly graduated nursing students' self-reported professional competence before and after the implementation of a new nursing curriculum. The study had a descriptive comparative design. Nursing students, who graduated in 2011, having studied according to an older curriculum, were compared with those who graduated in 2014, after a new nursing curriculum with more focus on person-centered nursing had been implemented. Setting: A higher education nursing program at a Swedish university. Participants: In total, 119 (2011 n = 69, 2014 n = 50) nursing students responded. Methods: Nursing students' self-reported professional competencies were assessed with the Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) scale. Results: There were no significant differences between the two groups of nursing students, who graduated in 2011 and 2014, respectively, with regard to age, sex, education, or work experience. Both groups rated their competencies as very high. Competence in value-based nursing was perceived to be significantly higher after the change in curriculum. The lowest competence, both in 2011 and 2014, was reported in education and supervision of staff and students. Conclusions: Our findings indicate that newly graduated nursing students- both those following the old curriculum and the first batch of students following the new one - perceive that their professional competence is high. Competence in value-based nursing, measured with the NPC scale, was reported higher after the implementation of a new curriculum, reflecting curriculum changes with more focus on person-centered nursing.
