The work and well-being of dental hygienists during Covid-19 : A qualitative study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion/Bakgrund: Covid-19 var ett nytt fenomen i samhället och har medfört nya erfarenheter och upplevelser inom vårdrelaterade yrken. Genom att ta del av tandhygienisternas upplevelser i arbetet under pandemin erhålls ökade kunskaper om Covid-19 inom tandvården. Detta medför en förbättrad förståelse inför framtida pandemier.

Syfte: Syftet med intervjustudien var att beskriva tandhygienisters arbete och välmående inom privat tandvård respektive Folktandvård i Värmlands region med fokus på KASAM.

Metod: Studien var en kvalitativ metod med induktiv ansats. Totalt genomfördes sex semistrukturerade intervjustudier med tandhygienister inom Folktandvård och privat tandvård i Värmlands region. Intervjuerna analyserades utifrån ett teoretiskt ramverk som omfattar Sense Of Coherence (SOC). 

Resultat: Resultaten av intervjustudien kunde genom en innehållsanalys delas in i två kategorier. Kategorierna redogör tandhygienisternas upplevelser när det gäller Covid-19 pandemins påverkan i deras yrkesutövande och välmående.

Slutsats: Den slutsats som baseras på tandhygienisternas upplevelser under Covid-19 pandemin har visat att perioden varit utmanande och trots psykisk påfrestning har tandhygienisterna en relativt hög känsla av sammanhang. Det betonar att begriplighet och hanterbarhet varit viktiga faktorer för att tandhygienisterna ska kunna upprätthålla ett gott kvalitativt omhändertagande. Det kan även vara värdefullt att implementera åtgärder i arbetsmiljön som främjar tandhygienisternas välbefinnande och utveckling under utmanande perioder med likheter som Covid-19 pandemin.

Abstract [en]

Introduction/Background: Covid-19 is a new phenomenon in society and has led to new experiences in healthcare related professions. By taking part in the dental hygienists' experiences of working during the pandemic, increased knowledge of Covid-19 in dentistry is obtained. This leads to an improved understanding in future pandemics.

Method: The study was a qualitative method with an inductive approach. A total of six semistructured interview studies were conducted with dental hygienists in public and private dental care in the Värmland region. The interviews were analyzed based on a theoretical framework that includes Sense Of Coherence (SOC).

Results: Through content analysis, the results of this interview study could be divided into two categories. The categories describe the experiences of dental hygienists regarding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on their professional practice and well-being.

Conclusion: The conclusion based on the dental hygienists' experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic has shown that the period has been challenging and despite the psychological strain, the dental hygienists have a relatively high sense of coherence. This emphasizes that comprehensibility and manageability have been important factors for dental hygienists to be able to maintain good quality care. It may also be valuable to implement measures in the work environment that promote dental hygienists' well-being and development during challenging periods with similarities to the Covid-19 pandemic.
