  • Green consumer behavior: Being good or seeming good?
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Journal of Product & Brand Management. - 1061-0421. ; 25:3, s. 274-284
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose: This paper aims to expand the emerging field of symbolic green consumer behavior (GCB) by investigating the impact of anticipated conspicuousness of the consumption situation on consumers’ choice of organic products. In addition, the paper also explores whether self-monitoring ability and attention to social comparison information (ATSCI) influence GCB in situations of anticipated high conspicuousness.Design/methodology/approach: Two experiments test the study’s hypotheses.Findings: The results of both experiments show that the anticipation of conspicuousness has a significant effect on GCB. Moreover, in Experiment 2, this effect is moderated by consumers’ level of ATSCI but not by their self-monitoring ability.Research limitations/implications: Because ATSCI significantly interacts with green consumption because of the anticipation of a conspicuous setting, although self-monitoring ability does not, we conclude that social identification is an important determinant of green consumption.Practical implications: Marketers who focus on building green brands could consider designing conspicuous consumption situations to increase GCB.Social implications: Policymakers could enact change by making the environmental unfriendliness of non-eco-friendly products visible to the public and thus increase the potential for GCB.Originality/value: The results validate the emerging understanding that green products are consumed for self-enhancement, but also expand the literature by highlighting that a key motivating factor of GCB is the desire to fit in.

  • The Impact of User Weight on Brands and Business Practices in Mass Market Fashion
  • 2010
  • Licentiatavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Overweight people claim to be mistreated by the fashion industry. If they were, it would be in line with branding theory supporting the idea of rejecting fat consumers to improve user imagery for fashion brands. However, fashion companies do not confess to such practices.To shed some light on the subject, I have conducted two studies.The first attempts to illustrate what effect, if any, user imagery has on fashion brands. It is an experiment designed to show how the weight of users affects consumers’ perceptions of mass market fashion brands. The findings show that consumers’ impressions of mass market fashion brands are significantly affected by the weight of its users. The effect of male user imagery is ambiguous. For women’s fashion on the other hand, slender users are to be preferred.In the second study I examine what effects these effects have on assortments. I compare the sizes of mass market clothes to the body sizes of the population. No evidence of discrimination of overweight or obese consumers was found -quite the contrary.The reasons for these unexpected findings may be explained by the requirements a brand must fulfil to make management of the customer base for user imagery purposes viable. The brand must be sensitive to user imagery; a requirement that mass market fashion fulfils. However, it must also be feasible for a company to exclude customers, and while garment sizes can be restricted to achieve this, the high volume sales strategy of mass market fashion apparently cannot.

  • Patients´views on periodontal disease; attitutes to oral health and expectancy of periodontal treatment: a qualitative interview study
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Oral Health & Preventive Dentistry. - 1602-1622. ; 6:3, s. 209-216
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Purpose:The aim of the study was to explore and gain an understanding of patients' views on their periodontal conditions, their perceived impact of periodontitis on daily life, as well as their attitudes to oral health and expectations of treatment.Materials and Methods:The study subjects were patients with chronic periodontitis, who had been referred to a specialist clinic. The constant comparative method for grounded theory was used to collect and analyse the data. Audiotaped, open-ended interviews were conducted after periodontal examination, but before treatment. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and consecutively analysed in hierarchical coding processes and continued until saturation was reached (n = 17). In the analysis, a conceptual model that outlined the steps involved in the diagnosis of periodontitis was generated. The core concept of the model, keeping up appearance and self-esteem, was related to the following four additional categories and their dimensions; doing what you have to do trying to live up to the norm, suddenly having a shameful and disabling disease, feeling deserted and in the hands of an authority, and investing all in a treatment with an unpredictable outcome.Results:The results illustrated that subjects diagnosed with chronic periodontitis felt ashamed and were willing to invest all they had in terms of time, effort and financial resources to become healthy and to maintain their self-esteem. However, they perceived a low degree of control over treatment decisions and treatment outcome.Conclusions: The results demonstrate the vulnerability of patients diagnosed with chronic periodontitis and emphasise the importance of communication in dentistry.

  • Assessing the quality of the dyadic relationship in first-time parents: development of a new instrument.
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Journal of family nursing. - 1074-8407. ; 11:1, s. 19-37
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The purpose of this research was to psychometrically evaluate the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS), modified for use with new, first-time parents by extending the items of communication, sensuality, and sexuality. A total of 820 Swedish respondents, 6 months after the birth of their first child, participated in the study. Psychometric evaluation was conducted with factor analysis. The obtained factor structure was tested with multitrait analysis program. Thirty-three itemswere found to fit into a five-factor solution, explaining 50% of the total variance. Descriptive data revealed thatmost new parentswere satisfied with their intimate relationship in general, but dissatisfied with their sexual lives. Themodified DAS, now called the Quality of Dyadic Relationship Instrument includes 33 items and seems to be a useful, updated measurement for assessing quality of the intimate relationship in new first-time parents.

  • The meaning of major depression in family-life: the viewpoint of the ill parent.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Clinical Nursing. - 0962-1067. ; 19:1-2, s. 284-293
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aim and objective.The aim was to elucidate the meaning of major depression in family lifefrom the viewpoint of an ill parent.Background.Major depression according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual ofMental Disorders is common and may appear repeatedly over severalyears, and affects family life. Depression in parents has a negativeimpact on family function and children's health; however, studiesregarding the deeper understanding of major depression in family lifeare lacking.Design.A qualitative explorative study using narrative interviews with eightparents who were identified with major depression.Methods.A phenomenological-hermeneutic method of interpretation was used foranalysing interview texts and included naive understanding, astructural analysis where text was divided into meaning units, whichwere condensed and abstracted, and finally a comprehensiveunderstanding.Result.Two themes were extracted: 'to be afflicted in an almost unmanageablesituation' with sub-themes 'feeling hopelessly bad', 'being worthless','being unsatisfied' and the theme 'to reconcile oneself to thesituation' with sub-themes 'being active', 'being satisfied' and'maintaining parenthood'.Conclusion.Comprehensive understanding revealed the parents' simultaneoussuffering and dignity in family life; suffering with serious lack ofwell-being and health, destroyed self-confidence and unhappiness, anddignity with strength, confidence and joy in children. The movementbetween suffering and dignity complicated family life. Dignity wasthreatened by the awareness that suffering in major depression wasrecurrent. Dignity had to be repeatedly restored for self and thefamily, and family dignity has to be restored before others outside thefamily circle.Relevance to clinical practice.A deeper understanding of the meaning of major depression in familylife is helpful and for healthcare professionals to prevent individualand family suffering by assisting and preserving dignity.

  • Breathlessness in everyday life from a patient perspective: A qualitative study using diaries
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Palliative & supportive care. - 1478-9515. ; 12:3, s. 189-194
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: Breathlessness is a subjective symptom, which makes it difficult to define and understand. The aim of the present study was to illuminate how patients suffering from breathlessness experience their everyday life. Method: The study was a qualitative study, and the focus of the analysis was the patients' descriptions of their experiences of breathlessness using a diary with two unstructured questions for a period of 7 consecutive days. Sixteen participants: 7 men, mean age 65 ± 7 (range 55-73 years old), and 9 women, mean age 65 ± 9 (range 50-72 years old) participated in the study. Results: Two themes emerged from the analysis: 1) Impaired quality of life and 2) symptom tolerance and adaptation. The theme "impaired quality of life" included the categories limited physical ability, psychological burdens, and social life barriers. The theme "symptom tolerance and adaptation" included importance of health care, social support, hobbies and leisure activities, and coping strategies. Significance of results: The findings in our study showed that patients, in spite of considerable difficulties with shortness of breath, found relief in several types of activities, in addition to drug therapy. The result indicates that the "biopsychosocial model" is an appealing approach that should be discussed further to gain a better understanding of breathlessness.

  • Value Network Transformation Digital Service Innovation in the Vehicle Industry
  • 2016
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Advancement in digital technology is rapidly changing the contemporary landscape of business and associated networks for manufacturing firms. Many traditional physical products are now being embedded with digital components, providing them digital capability to become digitized products. The digitization of physical products has become an important driver for digital service innovation within manufacturing industries. Such digital service innovation transforms value networks of manufacturing firms in various industries. While digitization of products and digital service innovation can be observed in many manufacturing industries, this thesis focuses on the transformation of value networks within the vehicle industry.This thesis is a collection of papers and a cover paper. The thesis reports from a collaborative project in the vehicle industry. The project explored new digital services for vehicles based on remote diagnostics technology. The exploration and conceptualization of digital services is investigated in a collaborative manner with participants from the vehicle industry. The results reflect that there is a paradigm shift for manufacturing firms digitizing their products, and stretching the business scope from product to solution oriented business.This thesis contributes to the existing literature on digital innovation with insights on the transformation of value networks in the vehicle industry. The research question addressed in this thesis is: How are value networks of manufacturing firms transformed by digital service innovation? To answer the question, this thesis conceptualizes how the value creating pattern of digitized products transforms value networks of manufacturing firms. A model is presented that reflects how the symbiotic value relationship between the digitized product and digital services transforms the roles, relationships and exchanges in the value networks of manufacturing firms. The model can serve as an analytical tool to further advance the knowledge on business aspects in digital innovation. This thesis contributes to practice by providing an understanding of how manufacturing firms can leverage value of digitized products and digital services in value networks.

  • Högskolepedagogik som motstånd och anpassning i historia, nutid och framtid
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Högre Utbildning. - Lund : Swednet. - 2000-7558. ; 3:1, s. 15-21
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Denna artikel är en reflektion över högskolepedagogikens historia, nutid och framtid. I den identifieras två strategier som kan ses som syftet med en högskolepedagogisk utbildning för universitetslärare: motstånd mot negativa konsekvenser av den oerhörda förändring som skett av universiteten de senaste decennierna, samt anpassning till en överlevnad och sökandet efter styrka i dessa förändringar. Artikeln för även fram en framtidsvision om en starkare skrågemenskap inom universitetslärarkåren med fokus på lärarskap genom empatisk dialog snarare än negativt ifrågasättande. På så sätt skulle de olika vetenskapsdisciplinerna tillsammans utgöra kärnan i reflektionen och agerandet för en fortsatt högskolepedagogisk utbildning för universitetslärare. Disciplinerna kan liknas vid dialekter inom ett språk – hög-skolepedagogik. På samma sätt som ingen enskild dialekt kan definiera hela språket, är det i den disciplinära mångfalden som högskolepedagogiken skapas och där den hämtar styrka för motstånd och anpassning.
