    Reliability and Validity of the Norwegian Family Sense of Coherence Scale2016In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, Vol. 6, p. 1075-1086, article id 73231Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To investigate reliability and validity of the translated Norwegianversion of the Family Sense of Coherence scale. Background: The Family Senseof Coherence scale measures the global sense of coherence in families and might helphealth professionals to identify vulnerable families and to facilitate the strengtheningof coping strategies in families. Design: Cross-sectional. Methods: In total, 264 parentsof children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and 157parents of children in secondary schools in three municipalities responded to a questionnaireregarding the characteristics of the parent and the child, with four scales:Family Sense of Coherence, Sense of Coherence, Family Assessment Device andWell-being. Statistics with Cronbach alpha, intra-class correlation coefficient, independentsample t-test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were used to establish thereliability and validity of the scale. Results: Internal consistency with Cronbach’s alphawas acceptable and test-retest reliability with intra-class correlation coefficientwas sufficient. Known-groups test revealed statistical differences between the twogroups of parents as pre-considered and significant correlations between FamilySense of Coherence and Sense of Coherence, Family Assessment Device andWell-being were found. Conclusion: The Norwegian version of Family Sense of Coherencescale can be considered as reliable and valid for the studied population. Relevanceto Clinical Practice: The Family Sense of Coherence scale appears to be anappropriate instrument for evaluating and assessing to find vulnerable families whoare in need of interventions strengthening the family’s resources.

    Nursing in a globalized world: Nursing students with international study experience report higher competence at graduation2014In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, no 4, p. 848-858Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to globalization, there is a need for nurses with skills and competence in providing safe, competent and culturally appropriate care. The aim of the study was to investigate whether International Study Experiences (ISE) in other countries during basic nursing education had an impact on newly graduated nurses as regards to self-reported competence. Moreover, a second aim was to explore what background factors that facilitated or constituted a hindrance for nursing students to choose to conduct part of their basic nursing education abroad. At 11 Universities/University Colleges (henceforth called Higher Education Institutions [HEIs]) in Sweden, 565 nursing students responded to the Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) Scale. Students with ISE rated their competence significantly higher on three NPC competence areas; “Legislation in nursing and safety planning”, “Leadership and development of nursing” and “Education and supervision of staff/students”. Background factors that significantly seemed to enhance ISE were; living alone, not having children or other commitments, international focus at the HEI and previous international experience. Lack of financial means was reported to prevent students from choosing ISE. The study implies that several background factors are of importance whether students choose ISE or not. ISE during basic nursing education might result in better self-reported competence in leading and developing nursing care, including education of future nurses, and in providing safe care.

    Health care staffs’ perception of patient safety culture in hospital settings and factors of importance for this2013In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, Vol. 3, p. 28-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many hospital patients are affected by adverse events. Managers are important when improving safety. The perception of patient safety culture varies among health care staff. Health care staff (n = 1023) working in medical, surgical or mixed medical-surgical health care divisions answered the 51 items (14 dimensions) Swedish Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (S-HSOPSC). Respondents with a managerial func- tion scored higher than non-managers for 11 of 14 dimensions, indicating patient safety culture strengths for a majority of dimensions. Enrolled nurses and staff with experience > 10 years also scored high for several dimensions. The 12 dimensions and sample characteristics explained 49% and 26% of the vari- ance for the outcome dimensions Overall Perceptions of Safety and Frequency of Incident Reporting, re- spectively. RNs, ENs and physicians have different views on patient safety culture. Hospital Management Support and Organisational Learning is some im- portant factors influencing patient safety culture. Bridging the gap in health care staff’s perceptions of safety in order to improve patient safety is of utmost importance. Managers have the responsibility to fos- ter patient safety culture at their workplace and can thus benefit from results when improving safety for patients.

    Swedish Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture: Psychometric properties and health care staff’s perception2013In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, Vol. 3, p. 41-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the psychometric properties of the Swedish and the original version of the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture within a Swedish hospital setting and described health care staff’s per- ceptions of patient safety culture. A web-survey was used to obtain data from registered nurses, enrolled nurses and physicians (N = 1023). Psychometric properties were tested using Confirmatory Factor Analysis and internal consistency using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. Root mean square error of ap- proximation and other fit indices indicated psycho- metric properties for both versions to be acceptable. Internal consistency for the dimensions varied be- tween 0.60 and 0.87. Staff scored the dimension “Teamwork Within Units” highest and the dimension “Hospital Management Support” the lowest. The safety was graded as very good or excellent by 58.9% of the respondents and one third had reported more than one event in the past 12 months. The question- naire is considered to be useful for measuring patient safety culture in Swedish hospital settings. Managers have a great responsibility to work with improving patient safety culture.

    Burden, Health and Sense of Coherenceamong Relatives of Depressed Inpatients2015In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, no 5, p. 163-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Rural High School Students' Sexual Behavior and Self-esteem2015In: Open Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2162-5336, E-ISSN 2162-5344, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 24-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Negative consequences for sexual health may be caused by risky sexual behavior related to attitudes, norms and self-efficacy regarding sexuality. Research has not resulted in a consensus on the associations between self-esteem and adolescents’ sexual behavior.

    Aims and objectives: The aim of the study was to describe high school students’ sexual behavior and self-esteem, along with investigating the relationship of attitudes, norms, self-efficacy, and self-esteem to sexual risk behavior. Another aim was to describe and compare gender differences in self-esteem and sexual risk behavior in high school students in a rural context.

    Methodological design: A cross-sectional design was used. The participants were 139 high school students, 16 to 18 years of age, sample size was decided by power calculation, and systematic randomized sampling was used. The students replied to a questionnaire about self-esteem, factors affecting sexual risk behavior, and sexual behavior.

    Results: Swedish high school students reported having few sexual partners, a low use of alcohol along with sex, yet a low consistency in condom use. The students reported both high basic self-esteem as well as earned self-esteem. Basic self-esteem was higher for male students while earned self-esteem was higher for female students. Significant correlations were found between self-esteem and some factors affecting sexual risk behavior related to condom use.

    Conclusion: High school students exhibited positive sexual behaviors and high levels of self-esteem, yet they put themselves at risk by inconsistent use of condoms Our findings can contribute  the need of  to an awareness of  the role self-esteem, attitudes, norms and self-efficacy plays in adolescents’ sexual behavior. Nurses working at the youth clinics are in a key position to discuss sexual health issues with adolescents to promote healthy outcomes in sexual health.
