  • Foot pain and disability in individuals with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS): impact on daily life activities.
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Disability and rehabilitation. - 0963-8288. ; 27:4, s. 164-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • PURPOSE: To investigate the amount and severity of podiatric problems in individuals with EDS as well as the consequences on daily life activities, and to compare these results with the results from a comparison group of the general population. METHOD: The Manchester Foot Pain and Disability Schedule (MFPDS) and a demographic and foot-specific form were mailed. RESULTS: One hundred and thirty-six individuals with EDS and 292 from the comparison group responded. The median MFPDS total score in the EDS group was 33 (range 17-49) (mean 32, SD 8) and in the comparison group 17 (range 17-41) (mean 19, SD 4) (P < 0.001). The items most frequently marked with 3 points in the EDS group were: 'I avoid standing for a long time', 'I catch the bus or use the care more often', and 'I get irritable when my feet hurt' (56, 46 and 43%, respectively). When comparing the NRS score (i.e. Numeric Rating Scale) regarding pain intensity between the EDS group (median 5) and the comparison group (median 0), a statistically significant difference was found (P < 0.001). Other foot problems than pain were reported by 73% (n = 100) of the EDS group and by 21% (n = 60) of the comparison group (P < 0.001). The presence of flat feet in the EDS group and the comparison group was reported by 55% (n = 75) and 8% (n = 23) respectively. CONCLUSION: Individuals' with EDS endure difficulties with their mobility due to their foot problems and related disability. It is therefore of utmost importance to find ways to assess the actual foot status for this group and to support the individuals with solutions to their problems with ambulation.

  • Communication and trust in the care provided to a dying parent: a nationwide study of cancer-bereaved youths.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Journal of clinical oncology : official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. - 1527-7755. ; 31:23, s. 2886-94
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • PURPOSE: To assess children's trust in the care provided to a dying parent during the final week of life in relation to end-of-life medical information about disease, treatment, and death.METHODS: This nationwide population-based survey included 622 (73%) of 851 youths who, 6 to 9 years earlier, at age 13 to 16 years, lost a parent to cancer. We asked about the children's reception of end-of-life professional information and trust in the care provided. We also asked about depression and several potential risk factors of distrust in the care provided.RESULTS: A majority (82%) reported moderate/very much trust in the care provided. Compared with children who received end-of-life medical information before their loss, the risk of distrust in the care provided was higher in those who received no information (risk ratio [RR], 2.5; 95% CI, 1.5 to 4.1), in those who only received information afterward (RR, 3.2; 95% CI, 1.7 to 5.9), and in those who did not know or remember if end-of-life medical information was provided (RR, 1.7; 95% CI, 1.1 to 2.5). Those reporting distrust in the care provided had an RR of 2.3 (95% CI, 1.5 to 3.5) for depression. Furthermore, the risk of distrust in the care provided was higher among children reporting poor efforts to cure (RR, 5.1; 95% CI, 3.6 to 7.3), and/or a poor relationship with the surviving parent (RR, 2.9; 95% CI, 2.0 to 4.1).CONCLUSION: Our study suggests that children's trust in the care provided to a dying parent was highest when they received end-of-life medical information before their loss.

  • Self-injury in teenagers who lost a parent to cancer: a nationwide, population-based, long-term follow-up.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: JAMA pediatrics. - 2168-6211. ; 167:2, s. 133-40
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of self-injury in parentally cancer-bereaved youth compared with their nonbereaved peers.DESIGN: Population-based study of cancer-bereaved youth and a random sample of matched population controls.SETTING: Sweden in 2009 and 2010.PARTICIPANTS: A total of 952 youth (74.8%) confirmed to be eligible for the study returned the questionnaire: 622 (73.1%) of 851 eligible young adults who lost a parent to cancer between the ages of 13 and 16 years, in 2000 to 2003, and 330 (78.4%) of 451 nonbereaved peers.MAIN EXPOSURE: Cancer bereavement or nonbreavement during the teenage years.MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Unadjusted and adjusted odds ratios (ORs) of self-injury after January 1, 2000.RESULTS: Among cancer-bereaved youth, 120 (19.5%) reported self-injury compared with 35 (10.6%) of their nonbereaved peers, yielding an OR of 2.0 (95% CI, 1.4-3.0). After controlling for potential confounding factors in childhood (eg, having engaged in self-destructive behavior, having been bullied, having been sexually or physically abused, having no one to share joys and sorrows with, and sex), the adjusted OR was 2.3 (95% CI, 1.4-3.7). The OR for suicide attempts was 1.6 (95% CI, 0.8-3.0).CONCLUSIONS: One-fifth of cancer-bereaved youth reported self-injury, representing twice the odds for self-injury in their nonbereaved peers, regardless of any of the adjustments we made. Raised awareness on a broad basis in health care and allied disciplines would enable identification and support provision to this vulnerable group.

  • Cancer survivors' perception of participation in a long-term follow-up study.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Journal of Medical Ethics. - 0306-6800. ; 39:1, s. 41-45
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Every year medical researchers make contact with a large number of cancer survivors with the aim of evaluating cancer treatment. For this reason we decided to investigate how Swedish cancer survivors perceived their participation in research studies focusing on the long-term consequences of being a survivor of gynaecological or urinary bladder cancer. Data were collected by means of two study-specific postal questionnaires, both consisting of questions covering physical symptoms, well-being and the experience of being a cancer survivor. Both questionnaires also included questions evaluating the participants' experience of being research subjects. The questionnaires were developed in close co-operation with cancer survivors. The study population consisted of 1068 cancer survivors. Of these, 95% (n=1003) reported that they thought the study was valuable and 54% (n=559) that they had been positively affected by participating. Four per cent (n=39) expressed that they had been negatively affected by their participation in the study. The vast majority of the cancer survivors thought that participating in their particular study was valuable.

  • Bereaved siblings' perception of participating in research-a nationwide study
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Psycho-oncology. ; 22:2, s. 411-6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study is to examine bereaved siblings' perception of research participation. METHODS: A Swedish nationwide study on avoidable and modifiable health care-related factors in paediatric oncology among bereaved siblings who lost a brother or sister to cancer between the years 2000 and 2007 was conducted. Data are presented as proportions, and the differences between groups were statistically tested at the 5% significant level using Fisher's exact test. RESULTS: Out of 240 eligible siblings, 174 responded (73 %). None of the siblings (0/168) thought their participation would affect them negatively in the long term. However, 13% (21/168) stated it was a negative experience to fill out the questionnaire, whereas 84% (142/169) found it to be a positive experience. Women were more likely to report their participation as positive in a long-term perspective compared with men (p?=?0.018). CONCLUSIONS: None of the bereaved siblings in this Swedish nationwide study anticipated any long-term negative effect from their research participation. A majority reported it as positive to revisit their needs and experiences throughout their brother or sister's illness and death 2-9 years following the loss. We believe that the stepwise approach used in this study contributed to the high acceptance. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

  • Psychological health in siblings who lost a brother or sister to cancer 2 to 9 years earlier.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Psycho-Oncology. - 1057-9249. ; 22:3, s. 683-691
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess long-term psychological distress in siblings who lost a brother or sister to cancer 2 to 9 years earlier, as compared with a control group of non-bereaved siblings from the general population.METHODS: During 2009, we conducted a nationwide follow-up study in Sweden by using an anonymous study-specific questionnaire. Siblings who had lost a brother or sister to cancer between the years 2000 and 2007 and also a control group of non-bereaved siblings from the general population were invited to participate. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was used to measure psychological distress, and to test for differences in the ordinal outcome responses between the groups, we used Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney rank-sum test.RESULTS: Among the bereaved siblings, 174/240 (73%) participated and 219/293 (75%) among the non-bereaved. Self-assessed low self-esteem (p = 0.002), difficulties falling asleep (p = 0.005), and low level of personal maturity (p = 0.007) at follow-up were more prevalent among bereaved siblings. However, anxiety (p = 0.298) and depression (p = 0.946), according to HADS, were similar.CONCLUSION: Bereaved siblings are at increased risk of low self-esteem, low level of personal maturity and difficulties falling asleep as compared with non-bereaved peers. Yet, the bereaved were not more likely to report anxiety or depression.

  • Impact of Social Support on Bereaved Siblings' Anxiety: A Nationwide Follow-Up
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing. - 1043-4542. ; 30:6, s. 301-310
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • PURPOSE: To assess adolescent and young adult siblings' perception of social support prior to and following the loss of their brother or sister to cancer, 2 to 9 years earlier, and their anxiety at follow-up.METHOD: In 2009, 174 (73%) bereaved siblings (12-25 years) participated in a nationwide, long-term follow-up study in Sweden using an anonymous study-specific questionnaire. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale was used to measure self-assessed anxiety.RESULTS: Siblings had a higher risk of anxiety if they perceived their need for social support was unsatisfied during their brother or sisters' last month before death, relative risk (RR) = 3.6 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.8-7.3); time after death, RR = 2.9 (95% CI = 1.5-5.6); and at follow-up, RR = 3.8 (95% CI = 2.0-7.2). Furthermore, a higher risk for anxiety was shown for siblings if they did not perceive that their parents and neighbors cared for them after their brother or sisters' death, RR = 2.7 (95% CI = 1.3-5.5), RR = 5.4 (95% CI = 1.3-21.9), respectively.CONCLUSION: Bereaved siblings had a greater probability to report self-assessed anxiety if they perceived that their need for social support was not satisfied prior to and following death. Information from both nurses and other health care professionals to families about the impact of social support may contribute to lessen the siblings' risk of anxiety.

  • Mothers' experiences of the time after the diagnosis of an intrauterine death until the induction of the delivery : a qualitative Internet-based study
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Journal of obstetrics and gynaecology research. - 1341-8076. ; 37:11, s. 1677-84
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • AIM: This study aims to describe how mothers spend the period of time between being diagnosed with a dead baby in utero and the induction of the delivery.MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data were collected using a web questionnaire. Five hundred and fifteen women who had experienced a stillbirth after the 22nd week of gestation answered the open question: 'What did you do between the diagnosis of the child's death and the beginning of the delivery?' A qualitative content analysis method was used.RESULTS: The results show that some mothers received help to adapt to the situation, while for others, waiting for the induction meant further stress and additional psychological trauma in an already strained situation.CONCLUSION: There is no reason to wait with the induction unless the parents themselves express a wish to the contrary. Health care professionals, together with the parents, should try to determine the best time for the induction of the birth after the baby's death in utero. That time may vary, depending on the parents' preferences.

    • Objective. To identify if mothers to stillborn babies had had a premonition that their unborn child might not be well and how they dealt with that premonition. Design. A mixed method approach. Setting: 1 034 women answered a web questionnaire. Sample: 614 women fulfilled the inclusion criteria of having a stillbirth after the 22(nd) gestational week and answered questions about premonition. Methods. Qualitative content analysis was used for the open questions and descriptive statistics for questions with fixed alternatives. Main Outcome.Measure: The premonition of an unwell unborn baby. Results. In all 392/614 (64%) of the women had had a premonition that their unborn baby might be unwell; 274/614 (70%) contacted their clinic and were invited to come in for a check-up, but by then it was too late as the baby was already dead. A further 88/614 (22%) decided to wait until their next routine check-up, believing that the symptoms were part of the normal cycle of pregnancy, and that the fetus would move less towards the end of a pregnancy. Thirty women (8%) contacted their clinic, but were told that everything appeared normal without an examination of the baby. Conclusion. Women need to know that a decrease in fetal movements is an important indicator of their unborn baby´s health. Health care professionals should not delay an examination if a mother-to-be is worried of her unborn baby´s wellbeing.

  • The Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) Scale Self-reported competence among nursing students on the point of graduation
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Nurse Education Today. - 0260-6917. ; 36, s. 165-171
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • 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.
