    How do relatives of persons with dementia experience their role in the patient participation process in special care units?2013In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 22, no 11/12, p. 1672-1681Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims and objective To explore the role of relatives in the patient participation process for persons with dementia living in special care units in Norwegian nursing homes, with focus on everyday life. Background Studies exploring the experience of relatives of persons with dementia as to their role in the patient participation process are limited. Design The study had an explorative grounded theory design. Method Data collection was carried out by interviews with twelve close relatives. Simultaneously, data analysis was performed with open, axial and selective coding. Results The relatives' role in the patient participation process was experienced as transitions between different roles to secure the resident's well-being, which was understood as the resident's comfort and dignity. This was the ultimate goal for their participation. The categories 'being a visitor', 'being a spokesperson', 'being a guardian' and 'being a link to the outside world' described the different roles. Different situations and conditions triggered different roles, and the relatives' trust in the personnel was a crucial factor. Conclusions The study has highlighted the great importance of relatives' role in the patient participation process, to secure the well-being of residents living in special care units. Our findings stress the uttermost need for a high degree of competence, interest and commitment among the personnel together with a well functioning, collaborative and cooperative relationship between the personnel and the relatives of persons with dementia. The study raises several important questions that emphasise that more research is needed. Relevance to clinical practice Relatives need to be seen and treated as a resource in the patient participation process in dementia care. More attention should be paid to initiating better cooperation between the personnel and the relatives, as this may have a positive impact both on the residents' and the relatives' well-being.

    ‘Patient participation’ in everyday activities in special care units for persons with dementia in Norwegian nursing homes2010In: International Journal of Older People Nursing, ISSN 1748-3735, E-ISSN 1748-3743, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 169-178Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim.  The aim of this study was to explore ‘patient participation’ in everyday activities for persons with dementia living in special care units in nursing homes. Background.  Studies about how ‘patient participation’ appears in the context of special care units for persons with dementia are lacking. Design.  The study has an explorative design. Method.  Grounded theory was chosen. Data collection was carried out by means of open observations and additional conversations with residents and personnel. Simultaneously, data analysis was performed with open, axial and selective coding. Findings.  The findings showed that ‘patient participation’ concerned ‘A matter of presence’ as the core category. The other categories described as ‘presence of personnel’ and ‘presence of residents’, were strongly connected to the core category as well as to each other. Presence of personnel comprised three levels; being there in body, which required physical presence; being there in mind, which required presence with all senses based on knowledge and competence; and being there in morality which was understood as being fully present, as it was based on humanistic values and included the two other levels. Presence of residents comprised ‘ability and wish’ and ‘adaptation’. The presence of the personnel had a huge impact on the ability and will to participate of the residents. Organizational conditions concerning leadership, amount of personnel and routines as well as housing conditions concerning architecture and shared accommodation, could stimulate or hinder ‘patient participation’. Conclusions and implications.  The study highlighted the great impact of the personnel’s presence in body, mind and morality on the participation capacity of the residents. The great importance of the nurse leaders was stressed, as they were responsible for organizational issues and served as role models. Group supervision of the personnel and their leaders would be an implication to propose, as these kinds of reflection groups offer opportunities to reflect on values, actions and routines.

    Tactile touch in intensive care: Nurses' preparation, patients' experiences and the effect on stress parameters2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The overall aim of this thesis was to acquire knowledge about whether tactile touch as a complementary method can (i) promote comfort and (ii) reduce stress reactions during care in an intensive care unit (ICU) Method: In Paper I, five nurses with a touch therapist training were interviewed about their experiences of preparation before giving tactile touch in an ICU. To analyse the meaning of preparation as a phenomenon, Giorgi’s descriptive phenomenological approach was used. In Paper II and III a randomised controlled trial was set up to investigate the effects of a five-day tactile touch intervention on patients’ oxytocin levels in arterial blood (II), on patients’ blood pressure, heart rate and blood glucose level, and on patients’ levels of anxiety, sedation and alertness (III). Forty-four patients were randomised to either an intervention group (n = 21) or a control group (n = 23). Data were analysed with non-parametric statistics. In Paper IV, six patients who had received the tactile touch intervention were interviewed to illuminate the experience of receiving tactile touch during intensive care. To gain a deeper understanding of the phenomenon and to illuminate the meaning, Ricoeur’s phenomenological hermeneutical method, developed by Lindseth and Norberg, was used. Findings: The nurses need four constituents (inner balance, unconditional respect for the patients’ integrity, a relationship with the patient characterized by reciprocal trust and a supportive environment) to be prepared and go through the transition from nurse to touch therapist (I). In the intervention study, no significant differences were shown for oxytocin levels between intervention and control group over time or within each day (II). There were significantly lower levels of anxiety for patients in the intervention group. There were no significant differences between the intervention and control groups for blood pressure, heart rate, the use of drugs, levels of sedation or blood glucose levels (III). The significance of receiving tactile touch during intensive care was described as the creation of an imagined room along with the touch therapist. In this imagined room, the patients enjoyed tactile touch and gained hope for the future (IV). Conclusion: Nurses needed internal and external balance to be prepared for providing tactile touch. Patients did not notice the surroundings as much as the nurses did. Patients enjoyed the tactile touch and experienced comfort. The impact on stress parameters were limited, except for levels of anxiety which declined significantly. The results gave some evidence for the benefit of tactile touch given to patients in intensive care.

    The outcome of tactile touch on oxytocin in intensive care patients: a randomized controlled trial2008In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 17, no 19, p. 2624-2633Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim. To explore the effects of five-day tactile touch intervention on oxytocin in intensive care patients. The hypotheses were that tactile touch increases the levels of oxytocin after intervention and over a six-day period. Background. Research on both humans and animals shows a correlation between touch and increased levels of oxytocin which inspired us to measure the levels of oxytocin in arterial blood to obtain information about the physiological effect of tactile touch. Design. Randomised controlled trial. Method. Forty-four patients from two general intensive care units, were randomly assigned to either tactile touch ( n = 21) or standard treatment – an hour of rest ( n = 23). Arterial blood was drawn for measurement of oxytocin, before and after both treatments. Results. No significant mean changes in oxytocin levels were found from day 1 to day 6 in the intervention group (mean −3·0 pM, SD 16·8). In the control group, there was a significant ( p = 0·01) decrease in oxytocin levels from day 1 to day 6, mean 26·4 pM (SD 74·1). There were no significant differences in changes between day 1 and day 6 when comparing the intervention group and control group, mean 23·4 pM (95% CI −20·2–67·0). Conclusion. Our hypothesis that tactile touch increases the levels of oxytocin in patients at intensive care units was not confirmed. An interesting observation was the decrease levels of oxytocin over the six-day period in the control group, which was not observed in the intervention group. Relevance to clinical practice. Tactile touch seemed to reduce the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Further and larger studies are needed in intensive care units to confirm/evaluate tactile touch as a complementary caring act for critically ill patients.

    The outcome of tactile touch on stress parameters in intensive care: a randomized controlled trial2008In: Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice, ISSN 1744-3881, E-ISSN 1873-6947, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 244-254Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study aimed to investigate the effects of a five-day tactile touch intervention in order to find new and unconventional measures to moderate the detrimental influence of patients’ stressors during intensive care. The hypothesis was that tactile touch would decrease stress indicators such as anxiety, glucose metabolism, blood pressure, heart rate and requirements of sedative drugs and noradrenalin. A randomized controlled trial was undertaken with 44 patients, which were assigned either to tactile touch or standard treatment (a rest hour). Observations of the stress indicators were made before, during and after the intervention or standard treatment. The study showed that tactile touch led to significantly lower levels of anxiety. The circulatory parameters suggested increased circulatory stability indicated by a reduction in noradrenalin requirement. The results need to be further validated through studies with larger sample sizes.

    What Is, Could Indeed Be Better: Swedish Womens Perceptions of Early Postnatal Care2011In: Midwifery, ISSN 0266-6138, E-ISSN 1532-3099, Vol. 27, no 5, p. 737-744Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Studies have shown that women are more likely to be satisfied with intrapartum rather than postpartum care. The structure and organization of care seems to be a barrier to good quality of postpartum treatment.Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the perceived reality and the subjective importance of early postnatal care and to study womens satisfaction with different models of early postnatal care and the factors that are most strongly associated with being very satisfied with the postnatal care received.Method: A regional survey was conducted with 1240 women recruited in mid-pregnancy and followed up two months after childbirth.Results: A statistically significant difference existed between the subjective importance (SI) and the perceived reality (PR) for all studied variables, with a greater SI than PR for all statements. The length of postnatal stay and the content of care were related to satisfaction, while the model of postnatal care was not. The most important variables for being very satisfied with postnatal care were that the baby got the best possible check-ups and medical care, and that the woman received sufficient support from staff.Conclusion: Further studies are needed to assess the best model of postnatal care that gives the best opportunities to provide satisfactory care for women and their families.

    Group supervision for nursing students during their clinical placements: its content and meaning2010In: Journal of Nursing Management, ISSN 0966-0429, E-ISSN 1365-2834, Vol. 18, no 6, p. 678-688Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim To explore what situations students focus on during group supervision sessions, and what this supervision meant to nursing students during their clinical placements. Background Knowledge about clinical supervision of nursing students in groups is scarce concerning what situations the students bring to the sessions. Method Open-ended questionnaires were filled out by students after each session. Qualitative content analysis was performed. Results The content evolved as: being a nursing student, encountering demanding situations and becoming a nurse. The meaning of group supervision was captured in the categories: 'satisfaction of being together in the supervision group', 'new understanding and insights' and 'hesitation and discomfort'. A change of pattern was found over time showing a development among the students from a self-centred focus to a profession-centred focus. Conclusion The value of group supervision as a tool to support nursing students' personal and professional development was emphasized. The students' great need for and lack of support in 'bed-side nursing' was obvious. Implications for nursing management Our findings would be valuable for nurse managers when striving for a good learning environment in clinical placements, as well as for nursing teachers, in their supportive role to both students and preceptors.

    Nursing care for patients on the edge of life in nursing homes: obstacles are overshadowing opportunities2013In: International Journal of Older People Nursing, ISSN 1748-3735, E-ISSN 1748-3743, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 50-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background.  Patients in nursing homes have comprehensive needs for nursing care and medical treatment. Most patients benefit from the treatment, but some are ‘on the edge of life’-in a borderland between living and dying with an unpredictable outcome, and questions are sometimes raised whether to withhold/withdraw curative treatment.

    Aim.  The aim was to describe nurses’ conceptions of good nursing care, and how this could be carried out for patients on the edge of life in nursing homes.

    Design.  In order to discover variations in the nurses’ understandings a phenomenographic approach was chosen. Phenomenography is concerned with qualitatively different ways of conceiving a phenomenon.

    Methods.  Fourteen nurses from two nursing homes were individually interviewed twice. A phenomenographic analysis was used.

    Results.  The outcome-space included two main categories. The first, ‘good nursing care is to meet patients’ needs for dignity,’ included three description-categories: needs for ‘preparedness’, ‘human relationship’ and ‘bodily comfort and safety’. The second, ‘opportunities were overshadowed by obstacles’ in carrying out nursing care encompassed three description-categories: ‘organisational factors,’‘relational factors’ and ‘personal factors’.

    Conclusions.  This study shows nurses’ conceptions of the importance of good nursing care for comforting patients on the edge of life.

    Implications for practice.  Several obstacles related to resources, communication, cooperation and nurses' professional strength and power need to be overcome if good nursing care can be performed.
