  • Experiences of caregivers, and relatives in public nursing homes
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 14:5, s. 691-701
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of the present study was, by means of discussion highlighting ethical questions and moral reasonings, to increase understanding of the situations of caregivers and relatives of older persons living in a public nursing home in Sweden. The findings show that these circumstances can be better understood by considering two different perspectives: an individual perspective, which focuses on the direct contact that occurs among older people, caregivers and relatives; and a societal perspective, which focuses on the norms, values, rules and laws that govern a society. Relatives and caregivers thought that the politicians were sending out mixed messages: they were praising caregivers and relatives for their efforts, but at the same time the public health care sector was subjected to significant cutbacks in resources. Both caregivers and relatives were dissatisfied and frustrated with the present situation regarding the care of older persons in public nursing homes.

  • Ethics rounds : An appreciated form of ethics support
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; s. 1-11
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Ethics rounds are one way to support healthcare personnel in handling ethically difficult situations. A previous study in the present project showed that ethics rounds did not result in significant changes in perceptions of how ethical issues were handled, that is, in the ethical climate. However, there was anecdotal evidence that the ethics rounds were viewed as a positive experience and that they stimulated ethical reflection.AIM: The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of how the ethics rounds were experienced and why the intervention in the form of ethics rounds did not succeed in improving the ethical climate for the staff.RESEARCH DESIGN:An exploratory and descriptive design with a qualitative approach was adopted, using individual interviews.PARTICIPANTS AND RESEARCH CONTEXT: A total of 11 healthcare personnel, working in two different psychiatry outpatient clinics and with experience of participating in ethics rounds, were interviewed.ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS: The study was based on informed consent and was approved by one of the Swedish Regional Ethical Review Boards.FINDINGS: The participants were generally positive about the ethics rounds. They had experienced changes by participating in the ethics rounds in the form of being able to see things from different perspectives as well as by gaining insight into ethical issues. However, these changes had not affected daily work.DISCUSSION: A crucial question is whether or not increased reflection ability among the participants is a good enough outcome of ethics rounds and whether this result could have been measured in patient-related outcomes. Ethics rounds might foster cooperation among the staff and this, in turn, could influence patient care.CONCLUSION: By listening to others during ethics rounds, a person can learn to see things from a new angle. Participation in ethics rounds can also lead to better insight concerning ethical issues.

  • Nurses' conceptions of decision making concerning life-sustaining treatment
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 15:2, s. 160-173
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this study was to describe nurses' conceptions of decision making with regard to life-sustaining treatment for dialysis patients. Semistructured interviews were conducted with 13 nurses caring for such patients at three hospitals. The interview material was subjected to qualitative content analysis. The nurses saw decision making as being characterized by uncertainty and by lack of communication and collaboration among all concerned. They described different ways of handling decision making, as well as insufficiency of physician-nurse collaboration, lack of confidence in physicians, hindrances to patient participation, and ambivalence about the role of patients' next of kin. Future research should test models for facilitating communication and decision making so that decisions will emerge from collaboration of all concerned. Nurses' role in decision making also needs to be discussed.

  • What actions promote a positive ethical climate? A critical incident study of nurses’ perceptions
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 19:4, s. 501-512
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • There is a lack of qualitative studies exploring the phenomenon of positive ethical climate and what is perceived as promoting it. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore and describe actions that acute care ward nurses perceive as promoting a positive ethical climate. The critical incident technique was used. Interviews were conducted with 20 nurses at wards where the ethical climate was considered positive, according to a previous study. Meeting the needs of patients and next of kin in a considerate way, as well as receiving and giving support and information within the work group, promoted a positive ethical climate. Likewise, working as a team with a standard for behaviour within the work group promoted a positive ethical climate. Future research needs to investigate other conditions that might also promote a positive ethical climate.

  • Chinese nurses' ethical concerns in a neurological ward.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 14:6, s. 810-824
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Our aim was to describe Chinese nurses' experiences of workplace distress and ethical dilemmas on a neurological ward. Qualitative interviews were performed with 20 nurses. On using latent content analysis, themes emerged in four content areas: ethical dilemmas, workplace distress, quality of nursing and managing distress. The ethical dilemmas were: (1) conflicting views on optimal treatment and nursing; (2) treatment choice meeting with financial constraints; and (3) misalignment of nursing responsibilities, competence and available resources. The patients' relatives lacked respect for the nurses' skills. Other dilemmas could be traced to the transition from a planned to a market economy, resulting in an excessive workload and treatment withdrawal for financial reasons. Lack of resources was perceived as an obstacle to proper patient care in addition to hospital organization, decreasing the quality of nursing, and increasing moral and workplace distress. The nurses managed mainly by striving for competence, which gave them hope for the future.

  • A cross-cultural comparison of nurses' ethical concerns
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 15:6, s. 745-760
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    •  The aim of this study was to compare Swedish and Chinese nurses' experiences of ethical dilemmas and workplace distress in order to deepen understanding of the challenges neuroscience nurses encounter in different cultures. Qualitative interviews from two previously performed empirical studies in Sweden and China were the basis of this comparative study. Four common content areas were identified in both studies: ethical dilemmas, workplace distress, quality of nursing and managing distress. The themes formulated within each content area were compared and synthesized into novel constellations by means of aggregated concept analysis. Despite wide differences in the two health care systems, the nurse participants had similar experiences with regard to work stress and a demanding work situation. They were struggling with similar ethical dilemmas, which concerned seriously ill patients and the possibilities of providing good care. This indicates the importance of providing nurses with the tools to influence their own work situation and thereby reducing their work-related stress.

  • Nurses' workplace distress and ethical dilemmas in Tanzanian health care
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Nursing Ethics. - 0969-7330. ; 15:4, s. 478-491
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of the study was to describe Tanzanian nurses’ meaning of and experiences with ethical dilemmas and workplace distress in different care settings. An open question guide was used and the study focused on the answers the 29 registered nurses’ supplied. The written answers were analysed with a phenomenological-hermeneutic method inspired by the philosophy of Ricoeur. From the findings the theme, ‘Tanzanian registered nurses’ invisible and visible expressions about existential conditions in care’, emerged from the interpretation of the following sub-themes, which appeared from the structural analysis: (1) ‘Suffering from workplace distress’; (2) ‘Suffering from ethical dilemmas’; (3) ‘Suffering from maintaining a good quality of nursing’; (4) ‘Suffering from the lack of respect, appreciation, and influence’; (5) ‘Suffering from a heavy workload does not prevent the registered nurses from struggling for better care for their patients’. In this study, the deep analysis of the Tanzanian nurses’ work situations shows that on a daily basis, they find themselves working on the edge of life and death, while they have few opportunities for doing anything about this situation. One of the conclusions is that the nurses need professional guidance so they can get insight into and also be able to reflect on the situations they are in, while also being made conscious of the fact that they do not have to overload themselves with ethical dilemmas and workplace distress.
