    Quality of care from patients' perspective: impact of the combination of person-related and external objective care conditions2011In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 20, no 17/18, p. 2540-2551Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims and objectives. To describe patients' perceptions of quality of care and to explore combinations of person-related and external objective care conditions as potential predictors of these perceptions. Background. Several studies have examined various single factors of person-related and external objective care conditions in relation to quality of care. None of these has included the effect of over-occupancy on patients' perception of quality of care. Furthermore, little is known about how combinations of different factors are related to each other and to the perception of quality of care using multivariate analysis. Design. A cross-sectional design. Method. A total of 528 patients (83·7%) from 12 medical, surgical or medical-surgical wards in five hospitals in Norway participated. Perceptions of quality of care and person-related conditions were measured with the 'Quality from Patient's Perspective' instrument. Data on external objective care conditions was collected from ward statistics provided by head nurses. Multivariate general linear modelling was used ( p < 0·05). Results. The combination of person-related and external objective care conditions revealed five factors that predict patients' perception of quality of care. Three of these are person-related conditions: sex, age and self-reported psychological well-being and two of them are external objective care conditions: RNs (headcount) on the wards and frequency of over-occupancy. These five factors explained 55% of the model. Patients rated the quality of care high. Conclusions. Sex, age, psychological well-being, frequency of over-occupancy and the number of RNs are important factors that must be emphasised if patients are to perceive the quality of care as high. Relevance to clinical practice. Head nurses and healthcare authorities must continually prepare the wards for over-occupancy and they must consider the number of RNs working on the wards.

    Patients' experiences of care quality and satisfaction satisfaction during hospital stay: a qualitative study2013In: European Journal for Person Centered Healthcare, ISSN 2052-5656, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 185-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rationale, aim and objectives: Patients experiencing high care quality and satisfied patients are more likely to follow treatments. Patient satisfaction is an important contributor to physical and mental health-related quality of life. Research emphasises the need to further study satisfaction from the patients’ perspective. The aim was to describe patients’ experiences of care quality and the relation to their satisfaction during hospital stay. 

    Methods: A qualitative descriptive design was used. Interviews were conducted with 22 patients discharged from hospital. Data was analysed by conventional content analysis.

    Results: Four categories and seven subcategories describing patients’ experiences of care quality and the relation to their satisfaction emerged. Desire to regain health comprised waiting for treatment, being cured, having hopes of being cured and described the treatment and health outcome of hospitalisation. Need to be met in a professional way as a unique person comprised receiving personalized knowledge, receiving healthcare by competent healthcare personnel and described the way patients need to be met by healthcare personnel. Need to be involved comprised taking responsibility for own health, leaving responsibility for own health and concerned the patients’ way of handling hospitalisation. Need to have balance between privacy and companionship concerned the relationship to fellow patients.

    Conclusions: Health condition is of great importance to patients’ experiences of quality of care and their satisfaction in relation to hospital stay. The healthcare personnel need to be aware that seriously ill patients may never be completely satisfied. Furthermore, healthcare personnel must do their utmost to provide the patients with person-centered care.  Hospital managers must consider the design of wards with respect to such matters as multiple-bed versus single-bed rooms and heads of nursing must carefully plan each patient’s accommodation.

    Patient photographs-A landmark for the ICU staff: A descriptive study.2013In: Intensive & Critical Care Nursing, ISSN 0964-3397, E-ISSN 1532-4036, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 193-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate ICU staff's perceptions of photographs displayed at the bedsides of unconscious patients and whether profession, years in ICU and work status had any influence on these perceptions.

    RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: A cross-sectional study was used comprising a questionnaire with statements and one open-ended question. All registered nurses, enrolled nurses and anaesthetists working in one ICU in Sweden were included. A total of 85 participants returned a questionnaire (response rate=77%).

    RESULTS: The findings of the study revealed that a photograph of the patient helped the ICU staff to relate to the patient as a person. Profession, years in ICU and work status had influence on the ICU staff's perceptions. From the content analysis two categories emerged: "getting closer and see the person" and "a landmark bringing hope".

    CONCLUSION: The ICU staff need to consider how close to the patient they want to be and why the patient's recovery is worth striving for. Keeping a professional approach is one of the challenges of working in ICU. A photograph can be an inexpensive and easy way of preventing the loss of identity of the patient as an individual within the technocratic environments of the ICU.

    Older people's perceptions of the quality of oral care in short-term care units: A cross-sectional study2018In: Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Opplevelse av brukermedvirkning i sykehus2012In: Nordisk tidsskrift for helseforskning, ISSN 1504-3614, E-ISSN 1891-2982, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 20-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [no]

    KOLS har erfart å medvirke i helsehjelpen. Når pasienter får nødvendig kunnskap om sin sykdom bidrar det til medvirkning. Det foreligger lite kunnskap om brukermedvirkning fra norske sykehusavdelinger, og hvordan og ved hvilke anledninger pasientene skal kunne medvirke.

    Metode: Studien har en kvalitativ, beskrivende design. Kvalitativt forskningsintervju ble benyttet som datasamlingsmetode. Analysen er inspirert av Malteruds systematiske tekstkondensering.

    Resultater: Informantene erfarte medvirkning når de var tydelige på egne behov og bevisst egen kunnskap, mens de opplevde at pustebesvær, manglende krefter og lav tiltro til egen erfaring hemmet medvirkning. Pasientene opplevde at sykepleierne fremmet deres medvirkning ved å vise omsorg og forståelse, ved at de var kjent for pasienten og hadde tid. Travelhet og mangel på respekt ble erfart som et hinder for medvirkning.

    Konklusjon: Informantenes opplevelse av medvirkning hang sammen med faktorer både hos dem selv og hos sykepleier. Pasientene bør utfordres til å være aktive og ha tiltro til egen kunnskap, og sykepleierne bør bli mer lyttende. Både pasientrollen og hjelperollen må endres slik at sykepleier og pasient blir mer likeverdige partnere.

    Delegation within municipal healthcare2011In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 534-541Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim To describe how registered nurses (RNs) perceive delegation to unlicensed personnel (UP) in a municipal healthcare context in Sweden. Background Within municipal health care RNs often delegate tasks to UP. The latter have practical training, but lack formal competence. Method Twelve RNs were interviewed and the material was analysed using a phenomenographic approach. Results Owing to a shortage of RNs, delegation is seen as a prerequisite for a functioning organization. This necessity also involves a number of perceived contradictions in three areas: (1) the work situation of RNs - facilitation and relief vs. lack of control, powerlessness, vagueness regarding responsibility, and resignation; (2) the relationship with unlicensed personnel - stimulation, possibility for mentoring, use of UP competence and the creation of fairness vs. questioning UP competence; and (3) The patients - increase in continuity, quicker treatment, and increased security vs. insecurity (with respect to, for example, the handling of medicine). Conclusion Registered nurses perceptions of delegation within municipal healthcare involve their own work situation, the UP and the patients. Implications for nursing management Registered nurses who delegate to UP must be given time for mentoring such that the nursing care is safe care of high quality.

    Interrater reliability using Modified Norton Scale, Pressure Ulcer Card, Short Form- Mini Nutritional Assessment by registered and enrolled nurses in clinical practice2008In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 618-626Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim.  Examine the interrater reliability between and among registered and enrolled nurses using Modified Norton Scale, Pressure Ulcer Card and Short Form-Mini Nutritional Assessment.

    Background.  In Sweden, registered nurses and enrolled nurses usually co-operate in patient care. National guidelines emphasize that reliable and valid assessment tools should be used. Interrater reliability for regular use of assessment tools is seldom studied.

    Design cross-sectional.  Registered nurses and enrolled nurses made 228 assessments of patients’ skin, risk for pressure ulcer and malnutrition, in patients with hip fracture and patients who had suffered a stroke.

    Results.  The interrater reliability of the Modified Norton Score total score was very good among registered nurses, good among enrolled nurses and between both groups. There was good, moderate and fair agreement on the subscales. Interrater reliability of Short Form Mini-Nutritional Assesment screening score was very good between both groups, good among registered nurses and moderate among enrolled nurses. There was good and moderate agreement on the items. There was good, moderate and fair agreement between and among registered nurses and enrolled nurses when using the Pressure Ulcer Card.

    Conclusion.  The Modified Norton Scale and Short Form Mini-Nutritional Assessment were reasonably understandable and easy to utilize in clinical care. Therefore, it seems possible for nurses to accomplish assessment using these tools. The agreement level was low for most skin sites except sacrum when nurses assessed patients’ skin with the Pressure Ulcer Card.

    Relevance to clinical practice.  The utilize of reliable and valid assessment tools is important in clinical practice. The tools could be used as an aid to the clinical judgement and therefore identify patients at risk for pressure ulcers and malnutrition. Pressure ulcer grading is a difficult skill that requires training and time to develop.

    Registered nurses and enrolled nurses assessment of postoperative pain and risk for malnutrition and pressure ulcers in patients with hip fracture2010In: International Journal of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing, ISSN 1878-1241, E-ISSN 1878-1292, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 30-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to describe and compare registered (RNs’) and enrolled nurses’ (ENs’) assessments of postoperative pain, risk for malnutrition and pressure ulcers in patients with hip fracture. Furthermore, the aim was to describe and compare their perceptions of using assessment tools. Thirty-four (34) RNs and forty-three (43) ENs, working on orthopaedic wards in Sweden, took part in the study. The assessments were carried out on 82 patients with hip fracture. The assessment tools included the numerical rating scale (NRS), short-form nutritional assessment tool (MNA-SF), modified Norton scale (MNS) and pressure ulcer card. Many patients were assessed to be in postoperative pain and at possible risk for malnutrition. Around 50% were assessed as being at risk for pressure ulcer formation (PU). There is a difference between RNs and ENs assessments of patients’ postoperative pain, risk for malnutrition and PU. ENs assessed to a greater degree that patients were in intense pain currently. RNs assessed to a greater degree that patients had been in intense pain in the past 24 h. Single items on the tools showed differences. However, there was no statistically difference for MNA-SF screening score and MNS total score. ENs found it easier to assess postoperative pain with the NRS compared to RNs.

    Swedish nurses’ perceptions of influencers on patient advocacy – a phenomenographic study2014In: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 21, no 6, p. 673-683Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: A limited number of studies have shown that patient advocacy can be influenced by both facilitators and barriers which can encourage and discourage nurses to act as patient advocates. Objective: This study’s aim was to describe Swedish nurses’ perceptions of influencers on patient advocacy.

    Research design and context: Interviews with 18 registered nurses from different Swedish clinical contexts were analysed using the phenomenographic method.

    Ethical considerations: Ethical revisions were made in accordance with national legislation and guidelines by committees for research ethics at Karlstad University. Findings: Three levels of hierarchically related influencers on patient advocacy were found in the descriptive categories. The fundamental influencer, the nurse’s character traits, was described in the perceptions that advocacy is influenced by nurse’s having a moral compass, having control over the care situation, being protective and feeling secure as a nurse. The second most vital influencer, the nurse’s bond with the patient, was expressed in the perceptions of knowing the patient and feeling empathy for the patient. The third level of influencers, the organisational conditions, was described in the perceptions that the organisational structures and organisational culture influence patient advocacy.

    Discussion: The results correspond with findings from earlier research but add an understanding that influencers on patient advocacy exist at three hierarchically related levels. Conclusion: The nurse’s character traits are the fundamental influencer to patient advocacy, but in order to be comfortable and secure when advocating for patients, nurses also need to be familiar with both the patient and the situation. A supposition could be that all influencers interact, which needs to be further addressed in future studies.

    Cross-cultural validation and psychometric testing of the Swedish version of the microsocial section of the Attitudes toward Patient Advocacy Scale2012In: The International Journal of Person Centered Medicine, ISSN 2043-7730, E-ISSN 2043-7749, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 473-481Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rationale, aims and objectives: Patient advocacy can be defined as a process for maintaining and monitoring patients’ rights, values and best interests. To measure attitudes toward patient advocacy, Bu and Wu (2008) developed the Attitudes toward Patient Advocacy Scale (APAS), which required further testing and refining in different contexts. This two-phased study aimed to: (1) translate and cross-culturally validate the APAS section for microsocial patient advocacy (AMIA) in accordance with the Swedish context and (2) test the instrument’s psychometric properties in the community care of older patients.

    Methods and results: The first phase consisted of back-translation and cultural validation of the APAS-AMIA in accordance with the Swedish context and resulted in a 39-item Swedish version of the APAS-AMIA. In the second phase, data were collected using the 39-item APAS-AMIA in 2009 from a sample of 230 registered nurses and nurse managers covering 16 communities. Subsequently, psychometric testing was conducted with exploratory factor analysis and reliability analysis in a final sample of 201 RNs. The exploratory factor analysis revealed a 4-factor structure, explaining 52.1% of the total scale variance in a 33-item instrument called the APAS-AMIA/SE. The Cronbach’s alpha for the APAS-AMIA/SE was 0.92 and varied between 0.82 and 0.88 for the factors.

    Conclusion: When the APAS-AMIA/SE semantic and conceptual equivalence to the APAS-AMIA, its distinct factor structure, internal consistency values and theoretical attachment are all added together, the conclusion is that the APAS-AMIA/SE is an acceptably reliable and valid instrument.

    Swedish registered nurses’ and nurse managers’ attitudes towards patient advocacy in community care of older patients2013In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 21, no 5, p. 753-761Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim To describe and compare registered nurses’ (RNs) and nurse managers’ (NMs) attitudes towards patient advocacy in the community care of older patients.

    Background RNs may act as patients’ advocates in the care of older patients. NMs should support patient advocacy in order to make the best care available to patients.

    Method A modified Attitudes towards Patient Advocacy Scale was used to collect data from 207 RNs and 23 NMs in the Swedish community care of older patients. The response rate was 52%. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used.

    Results Both RNs and NMs showed positive attitudes towards patient advocacy. They were more positive towards patient advocacy for patients unable to help themselves than for competent patients.

    Conclusions This study showed that RNs and NMs did not differ in their attitudes towards patient advocacy. This result is consistent with the idea of giving the neediest and vulnerable patients greater care.

    Implications for Nursing Management It is important for NMs to clarify their own and RNs attitudes towards patient advocacy as disparities may affect cooperation between the groups. Any effects on cooperation may, by extension, affect the quality of care.

    Individual and organisational factors influencing registered nurses' attitudes towards patient advocacy in Swedish community health care of elders2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 486-495Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe and explore individual and organisational factors potentially influencing registered nurses' (RNs) attitudes towards patient advocacy. Methods and Sample: In a quantitative cross-sectional study, data were collected from 226 RNs in community health care of elders. A questionnaire was used to measure a number of factors including attitudes towards patient advocacy, nursing competence, personality traits, individual preferences regarding the quality of health care and working climate. A multiple regression analysis was performed. Results: The results showed that individual factors of nursing competence and individual preferences of the quality of health care, as well as organisational factors of the working climate, explained 26.2% of the variance in the RNs' attitudes towards patient advocacy. Conclusions: Although the mentioned individual factors may be intertwined, the conclusion is that both individual and organisational factors influenced RNs' attitudes towards patient advocacy. The results do not verify that nursing experience, workplace experience, educational level or personality traits influence the RNs' attitudes towards patient advocacy. The proportion of explained variance indicates that additional factors also influence attitudes towards patient advocacy, and more research is needed to shed further light on these factors.

    Validating the European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire in people with type 2 diabetes. Latent trait analyses applying multidimensional Rasch modelling and confirmatory factor analysis.2017In: Journal of Advanced Nursing, ISSN 0309-2402, E-ISSN 1365-2648, Vol. 73, no 11, p. 2730-2744Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Establishing the HLS-Q12 short version of the European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire: Latent trait analyses using Rasch modelling and confirmatory factor modelling2018In: BMC Health Services Research, ISSN 1472-6963, E-ISSN 1472-6963, Vol. 18, no 506Article in journal (Other academic)
    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.

    A model (CMBP) for collaboration between university college and nursing practice to promote research utilization in students' clinical placements: A pilot study2014In: Nurse Education in Practice, ISSN 1471-5953, E-ISSN 1873-5223, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 396-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: A collaborative project was initiated in Norway between a university college and a hospital in order to improve RNs' and nursing students' research utilization in clinical placements. This paper describes the model (CMBP) that was developed, its first application, and evaluation. Aim: The evaluation aimed at describing nurses' and students' experiences of the CMBP related to collaboration, facilitation, learning, and impact on nursing care. Methods: Thirty-eight students from the second and third year of nursing education, and four nurses answered questionnaires with closed and open ended questions. In addition two of the nurses wrote diaries. Data were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis. Findings: Almost all participants reported that collaboration between nursing college and nursing practice had been beneficial. Most students and all nurses reported about valuable learning, increased understanding of research utilization, and improved quality of nursing care. Both students and RNs recommended the CMBP to be used in all clinical placements to support academic learning and increase research utilization in clinical practice. Conclusion: Despite study limitations the findings indicate that the CMBP has a potential to be a useful model for teaching RNs' and students EBP. However, further refinement of the model is needed, followed by a more comprehensive implementation and evaluation. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Formal caregivers' perceptions of quality of care for older people: predicting factors2015In: BMC Research Notes, ISSN 1756-0500, E-ISSN 1756-0500, Vol. 8, no 623Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    Despite the growing number of studies concerning quality of care for older people, there is a lack of studies depicting factors associated with good quality of care from the formal caregivers’ perspective. The aim was to describe formal caregivers’ perceptions of quality of care for older people in the community and explore factors associated with these perceptions. In total, 70 nursing assistants, 163 enrolled nurses and 198 registered nurses from 14 communities in central Sweden participated in the study. They filled out the following questionnaires: a modified version of Quality from the Patient’s Perspective, Creative Climate Questionnaire, Stress of Conscience Questionnaire, items regarding education and competence, Health Index and Sense of coherence questionnaire. The overall response rate was 57 % (n = 431).

    Results

    In the perceived reality of quality of care respondents assessed the highest mean value in the dimension medical-technical competence and physical technical conditions and lower values in the dimensions; identity-oriented approach, socio-cultural atmosphere and in the context specific dimension. The caregivers estimated their competence and health rather high, had lower average values in sense of coherence and organizational climate and low values in stress of conscience.

    Conclusions

    The PR of quality of care were estimated higher among NA/ENs compared to RNs. Occupation, organizational climate and stress of conscience were factors associated with quality of care that explained 42 % of the variance. Competence, general health and sense of coherence were not significantly associated to quality of care. The mentioned factors explaining quality of care might be intertwined and showed that formal caregivers’ working conditions are of great importance for quality of care.

    The Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) Scale: Self-reported competence among nursing students on the point of graduation2016In: Nurse Education Today, ISSN 0260-6917, E-ISSN 1532-2793, Vol. 36, p. 165-171Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: International organisations, e.g. WHO, stress the importance of competent registered nurses (RN) for the safety and quality of healthcare systems. Low competence among RNs has been shown to increase the morbidity and mortality of inpatients. Objectives: To investigate self-reported competence among nursing students on the point of graduation (NSPGs), using the Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) Scale, and to relate the findings to background factors. Methods and participants; The NPC Scale consists of 88 items within eight competence areas (CAs) and two overarching themes. Questions about socio-economic background and perceived overall quality of the degree programme were added. In total, 1086 NSPGs (mean age, 28.1[20-56] years, 87.3% women) from 11 universities/university colleges participated. Results: NSPGs reported significantly higher scores for Theme I "Patient-Related Nursing" than for Theme II "Organisation and Development of Nursing Care". Younger NSPGs (20-27 years) reported significantly higher scores for the CAs "Medical and Technical Care" and "Documentation and Information Technology". Female NSPGs scored significantly higher for "Value-Based Nursing". Those who had taken the nursing care programme at upper secondary school before the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programme scored significantly higher on "Nursing Care", "Medical and Technical Care", "Teaching/Learning and Support", "Legislation in Nursing and Safety Planning" and on Theme I. Working extra paid hours in healthcare alongside the BSN programme contributed to significantly higher self-reported scores for four CAs and both themes. Clinical courses within the BSN programme contributed to perceived competence to a significantly higher degree than theoretical courses (932% vs 875% of NSPGs). Summary and conclusion: Mean scores reported by NSPGs were highest for the four CAs connected with patient-related nursing and lowest for CAs relating to organisation and development of nursing care. We conclude that the NPC Scale can be used to identify and measure aspects of self-reported competence among NSPGs. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Building competence thorugh cross-cultural collaboration in the aftermath of a tsunami: Experiences of Indonesian teachers2013In: Nurse Education Today, ISSN 0260-6917, E-ISSN 1532-2793, Nurse Educ Today, ISSN 0260-6917, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 192-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe the reported experiences of Indonesian nursing teachers who participated in a two-year cross-cultural project designed to build pedagogical and professional competence after the tsunami in Aceh province in 2004. Eleven Indonesian teachers who had participated in the competence project answered an open-ended questionnaire in November 2007. The data were analyzed by qualitative content analysis, and the main theme "an empowered nursing teacher" emerged. The teachers expressed positive experiences, as having more self confidence, feeling inspired to develop one's potentiality and feeling strength and happiness in one's work. The theme constituted four categories: "encouraged by collaboration and teamwork", "more independent as a teacher", "encouraged by more active students" and, "inspired to develop further competence". The overall result showed that the teachers in the competence developing project reported mostly positive experiences by participating in the project. However, two years is a short time to develop both pedagogical and professional competence. They expressed a desire to continue building their competence, especially in direct clinical practice.
