    A supportive nursing care clinic: Conceptions of patients with head and neck cancer2007In: European Journal of Oncology Nursing, 11,(1), 49-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Patients with head and neck cancer have complex long-lasting physical and psychosocial needs due to illness and treatment, and studies have shown deficiencies concerning support in these respects. The purpose of this study was to describe how head and neck cancer patients with eating problems conceived the significance of a supportive nursing care clinic before, during and after completion of radiotherapy. Thematic interviews were carried out in an open dialogue with twelve patients treated with radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. The phenomenographic method was used in the analyses. The findings showed that the nurse clinic could meet head and neck cancer patients' needs of safety and security, which was especially important before and after completion of treatment when no other regular contacts in the health care system existed. The significance of the nurse clinic varied depending on where in the trajectory the patients were, what needs and problems they experienced, and how severe these were experienced by the individual patient. The supportive nursing care clinic could meet these patients' needs of knowledge, care and support both concerning practical measures related to the disease and its treatment, and emotional needs. This way of organising the care can contribute to these patients' health and wellbeing.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to acquire a deeper understanding of head and neck cancer patients' lived experiences of daily life during the trajectory of care, with a focus on eating problems. Nine patients were interviewed in an open dialogue approximately 6 to 8 weeks after completion of radiotherapy. The data analysis was carried out using interpretative phenomenology, inspired by Colaizzi (Existential Phenomenological Alternatives for Psychology; 1978:48-71). The essential structure emerged as "Needing a hand to hold" and consists of 3 interrelated themes, "Disruption of daily life," "Waiting in suspense," and "Left to one's own devices." The findings show that these patients experience a profound disruption in daily life due to eating problems and associated problems caused by the cancer and its treatment before, during, and after treatment. The treatment period was mostly experienced as safe and secure, but there were also experiences of insufficient information and lack of time to ask questions. Before and during pauses in radiotherapy and after completion of treatment, the informants were, to a large extent, left alone with their problems, questions, and worries about the future. To meet these patients' needs, the care must provide greater consistency and continuity throughout the whole trajectory of care.

    Sexuality is not a priority when disease and treatment side effects are severe: conceptions of patients with malignant blood diseases2013In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 22, p. 3503-3512Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:

    To describe how patients with malignant blood diseases conceive the influence of chemo- or chemoimmunotherapy on sexuality, and their need of support related to this issue.

    BACKGROUND:

    Sexuality is often negatively affected in cancer patients with sex-specific diagnoses. For patients with malignant blood diseases, the research is limited with regard to the effect on sexuality. Knowledge about their need for support related to sexuality is also needed as nurses are found to often avoid this area of their responsibility.

    Patient's sexuality: A neglected area of cancer nursing?2012In: European Journal of Oncology Nursing, ISSN 1462-3889, E-ISSN 1532-2122, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 426-431Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PurposeThe purpose of this study was to describe nurses' conceptions of dialogues about sexuality with cancer patients.

    MethodsThe study was carried out using phenomenographic method. Ten nurses from different care contexts where nurses meet cancer patients in various phases of trajectory of care were interviewed.

    ResultsThe analysis revealed one main category 'We should talk about sexuality – but we usually don't' and three descriptive categories consisting of nurses' qualitatively different conceptions of talks about sexuality: (1) nurses' attitudes, knowledge and skills are impacting, (2) patients' sexual problems are the basis for dialogues and (3) the ward environment is impacting. The main category was hierarchically ranged and could be further understood by the descriptive categories.

    ConclusionThe study showed that cancer patients' need of talks about and support regarding sexuality were conceived as being low during the whole trajectory of care. Despite this the nurses conceived that they should talk about sexuality with the patients, but due to own attitudes, knowledge and skills, as well as conditions in the ward environment they usually did not. Further studies are needed to clarify how cancer patients especially with non-sex specific diagnosis describe their sexual problems and needs of support in regard to sexuality. About what, when, how and by whom, cancer patients and their partners want information and supportive care related to sexuality need to be clarified.

    Presence and availability: staff conceptions of nursing leadership on an intensive care unit2007In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 522-529Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A demand for high quality care has drawn attention to leadership issues. The nurse managing role has changed over the years and become more complex with a high burden of work. Few studies describe the perspective of 'those being lead'. The aim of this study was to describe staff conceptions about nursing leadership on an intensive care unit. Ten members of staff were interviewed and analysed according to a phenomenographical approach, focusing variations in how informants experience nursing leadership and make sense of the world around them. The findings show that nursing leadership was considered to be 'being present and available in daily work', 'supporting everyday practice', 'facilitating professional acknowledgement' and to 'improve care both as individuals and as a team'. Transformational leadership seemed to be suitable to meet the staff perspective. In such leadership communicative skills is a core to work with strong professionals by being present and available.

    Expectations and experiences of group-supervision: Swedish and Norwegian preceptors' perspectives2013In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 263-272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim The aim of the present study was to describe preceptors' expectations and experiences of participating in group supervision (GS). Background The challenging role of preceptors and their need for support is well known. Therefore, a collaborative project was carried out, providing GS to preceptors to strengthen them in their role. Method Data were collected from 48 preceptors by means of study-specific forms and field notes, and analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results Both positive and negative expectations and experiences of group supervision were found, but the positive experiences exceeded the expectations. The group in itself had a significant meaning for the preceptors; their pedagogical and personal competence increased and they became aware of their role as 'bridge-builders'. Conclusions Using GS to strengthen preceptors in their role was found to be successful. The findings provided new arguments for this model as a reflection tool. Implications for nursing management Strengthened preceptors can have an impact on nursing students' learning, and thereby also on future nurses' competence, which is a great concern of nurse managers. By using nurse lecturers as group leaders, the collaboration between the clinical placements and the nursing faculties can be improved.

    Challenges in community health nursing of old migrant patients in Norway - an exploratory study2007In: International Journal of Older People Nursing, 2(1)45-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Old people of non-western minority backgrounds are an invisible group in Norway in several ways: in the national debate about the ageing population, in geriatric health care services, and in the general picture of ethnic minorities. There is a lack of knowledge about health and care among old migrants. This study aimed at exploring nurse managers´ perceptions of the content of community health nursing care of older people from non-western countries of origin, and the challenges associated with caring for this group of patients. The study took place in a medium-sized Norwegian community, a mostly urban area with surrounding rural areas. The community health nursing system was organized in six districts with nurses in management positions, covering nursing homes, special housing and home-based care. Data were collected by a questionnaire with structured and open ended questions answered by 18 nurse managers. The data provided scarce information, but indicated a lack of systematic cultural care assessments. Community health nursing of old non-western migrant patients was described as deficient and a demanding burden. The challenges were captured in four themes: language barriers, family involvement in care, deficiencies in cultural competency, and the need for development. Increased competency, action and local responsibility were identified as propositions to manage the challenges. The lack of awareness and knowledge concerning cultural issues found in this study highlights the need for further development and research on this topic
