  • Factors influencing GPs' decisions regarding screening for high alcohol consumption : a focus group study in Swedish primary care
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Public Health. - 0033-3506 .- 1476-5616. ; 119:9, s. 781-788
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective The aim of this study was to explore factors that influence general practitioners' (GPs') decisions regarding screening for high alcohol consumption.Methods GPs working at three primary healthcare centres in Sweden participated in focus group interviews. The interviews were recorded and transcribed verbatim, and a deductive framework approach was used for the analysis.Results The majority of the participating GPs did not believe in asking all patients about their alcohol consumption. Reported factors that influenced how many and which patients were questioned about alcohol consumption were time, age of the patient, consultation setting, patient–physician relationship, what symptoms the patient presented with, and knowledge of measures if patients appear to have a high alcohol consumption. Thus, alcohol screening and intervention were not performed in all patient groups as was originally intended, but were performed in limited groups of patients such as those with alcohol-related symptoms.Conclusions Although the number of participants in this study was small and the conclusions cannot be generalized, the results provide some valuable insights into why GPs are hesitant to engage in screening for high alcohol consumption. Since prevention of alcohol-related health problems is an important public health issue, many different screening and intervention strategies have to be formulated and evaluated in order to reach patients with both hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption within the healthcare system. Screening all consecutive patients for a limited period or screening patient groups known to include a fairly high frequency of high alcohol consumers are two ways of limiting the time requirements and increasing role legitimacy. Still, there is a need for a broader public health strategy involving many players in the community in alcohol preventive measures, especially in more primary preventive approaches.

  • Towards implementation of alcohol preventive interventions into primary health care : testing a new model for selection of clinically meaningful patient groups for alcohol screening
  • Annan publikation (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Background: The aim of the study was to explore alcohol consumption and drinking patterns among primary health care patients in relation to their complaints as presented to the nurse in the reception at the health care centre. A model for identifying clinically meaningful groups of patients to be included in systematic screening for hazardous alcohol consumption was empirically tested.Methods : The study was conducted at two primary health care centres in a large city in the county of Ostergiitland in southern Sweden. All patients 16 years or older visiting the health care centres during a 2-week period, received a questionnaire concerning their complaints and alcohol habits when registering at the reception. The patients returned the completed questionnaires in sealed boxes before leaving the health care centre. A model for identifying clinically meaningful patient groups to be included in systematic alcohol screening was developed and applied on the results from the questionmrire.Results: Among 358 female respondents 10.6% (38 patients) were hazardous drinkers and among the 203 male respondents 20.2% (41 patients). When applying the model on the questionnaire results, it was possible to identify the most optimal patient groups for systematic alcohol screening on basis of the patient's complaints. Among the female respondents the most optimal patient groups to screen were those presenting skin, stomach/bowel, psychological, lung, or urinary tract complaints. Among the males were the patient groups presenting complaints concerning lungs, psychological problems, back, neck or shoulder problems, hypertension or injuries found to be the most optimal. There were, however, no significant differences in the proportion of hazardous drinkers for the different complaints, with the exception of male respondents with lung complaints, where 100% were hazardous drinkers.Conclusions: As the proportion of hazardous drinkers among primary health care patients within each presented complaint was found to be rather low during the two week study period, it was not possible to make any definite conclusion about an optimal screening strategy. However the model presented may be useful in future research to identify clinically meaningful patient groups to be included in selective screening, although this requires a much larger data collection

  • Under what circumstances are nurses willing to engage in brief alcohol interventions? : a qualitative study from primary care in Swedena
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Addictive Behaviours. - 0306-4603 .- 1873-6327. ; 30:5, s. 1049-1053
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • To improve alcohol prevention in primary health care, it has been suggested that primary care nurses are an under-utilised resource. The aim of this study was to identify under what circumstances primary care nurses in Sweden are willing to engage in alcohol prevention. All nurses at three primary health care centres in Östergötland, Sweden were invited to participate in focus group interviews; 26 nurses participated. The nurses considered primary health care to be just one among other sectors within the community with responsibility for alcohol prevention. The role of health care in alcohol prevention was perceived to be important but mainly secondary preventive. The nurses felt justified screening all patients' alcohol habits only when they could refer to an obligation or a time-limited project. Otherwise, they mainly wanted to engage in screening patients with alcohol-related symptoms or diagnoses and other risk groups. Reasons for refraining from alcohol screening and intervention included lack of self-efficacy, time consumption and fear of harming their relationship with the patient. New strategies for alcohol prevention in primary care are discussed.

  • Patients'and doctors' views of using the schedule for individual quality of life in clinical practice.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: JOURNAL OF SUPPORTIVE ONCOLOGY. - 1544-6794. ; 5:6, s. 281-287
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study explored patients’ and oncologists’ perceptions ofusing a computer-administered, individualized quality-of-life (QOL) in-strument to support an oncologic consultation. Twenty patients with gas-trointestinal cancer (50% female; mean age 60 years) at two hospitals inSweden completed the Schedule for the Evaluation of Individual Quality ofLife-Direct Weight (SEIQoL–DW) and the Disease-Related (DR) SEIQoL-DWand brought the results to the consultation. Afterwards, interviews wereconducted with all patients and six of eight doctors. All interviews wereaudiotaped, transcribed, and analyzed using an interpretivist approach.Most patients and doctors believed that the instrument would facilitatedetection of patients’ areas of concern and would support monitoringof patients’ QOL. This tool may empower the patient, give the doctor abroader picture of the patient, and influence clinical decision-making. TheSEIQoL-DW may be a systematic method of stimulating patient-centeredcare. It apparently encourages patients to reflect upon their own situationand allows them to be seen as whole persons. However, further quantita-tive evaluation of the intervention’s outcomes is required.

  • Implementing training and support, financial reimbursement, and referral to an internet-based brief advice program to improve the early identification of hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption in primary care (ODHIN) : study protocol for a cluster randomized factorial trial
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Implementation Science. - : BioMed Central. - 1748-5908 .- 1748-5908. ; 8
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BackgroundThe European level of alcohol consumption, and the subsequent burden of disease, is high compared to the rest of the world. While screening and brief interventions in primary healthcare are cost-effective, in most countries they have hardly been implemented in routine primary healthcare. In this study, we aim to examine the effectiveness and efficiency of three implementation interventions that have been chosen to address key barriers for improvement: training and support to address lack of knowledge and motivation in healthcare providers; financial reimbursement to compensate the time investment; and internet-based counselling to reduce workload for primary care providers.Methods/designIn a cluster randomized factorial trial, data from Catalan, English, Netherlands, Polish, and Swedish primary healthcare units will be collected on screening and brief advice rates for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption. The three implementation strategies will be provided separately and in combination in a total of seven intervention groups and compared with a treatment as usual control group. Screening and brief intervention activities will be measured at baseline, during 12 weeks and after six months. Process measures include health professionals’ role security and therapeutic commitment of the participating providers (SAAPPQ questionnaire). A total of 120 primary healthcare units will be included, equally distributed over the five countries. Both intention to treat and per protocol analyses are planned to determine intervention effectiveness, using random coefficient regression modelling.DiscussionEffective interventions to implement screening and brief interventions for hazardous alcohol use are urgently required. This international multi-centre trial will provide evidence to guide decision makers.

  • Activating People : Physical activity in the general population and referral schemes among primary health care patients in a Swedish county
  • 2009
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • In this thesis the need for physical activity interventions is investigated in a general adult population, the characteristics of physical activity referral (PAR) scheme recipients and referral practitioners, and the effectiveness of PAR in a routine primary health-care (PHC) setting in the county of Östergötland, Sweden. The thesis consists of four papers: three papers are based on a quantitative, uncontrolled prospective PAR study and one paper is based on a population survey in the county of Östergötland, Sweden.In 2006, only one in four of the adult population, aged 18–84 years, in Östergötland was considered sufficiently active to meet the Swedish national public health recommendations, stated as “30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day”. More than one-third (37%) reported that they hade no intentions to change their physical activity levels, while 36% had thought about change, and 27% were determined to change. Although the individuals felt a large responsibility for their own physical activity, they also believed that this responsibility is partly shared by health-care providers. Among those who wanted to increase their physical activity level, almost one in seven of the total population and one in four among those reporting poor general health, with a BMI over 30 and those who were inactive reported that they wanted support to bring about this change. More than half of them wanted this support from their health-care provider.During 2004 and 2005, a total of 6300 patients received PARs as part of the Östergötland PAR scheme. Two-thirds of the patients were female and half of the patients were 45–64 years old. The PAR scheme reached a relatively high proportion of physically inactive people. PARrelated statistics, including the numbers of referrals made at individual PHC centres and by different professional categories, showed large differences in prescribing activities, both by patient categories, and by prescribing professionals, indicating great potential for further improvements of this scheme in the future.Half of the patients (51%) who received PARs were recommended home-based activities, such as walking. Patient follow-up showed that an increase in self-reported physical activity level was achieved by 52% of the patients at the 12-month follow-up. The proportion of inactive patients decreased from 33% at baseline to 20% at 12 months. The proportion of patients who were physically active on a regular basis increased from 22% at baseline to 32% at 12 months. Neither patient age, diagnosis/PAR reason nor the profession of the prescriber were associated with differences in effectiveness. Low activity levels at baseline and homebased activities were significantly associated with increased physical activity at 12 months. Half of the patients (50%) achieved adherence to PARs at the 12-month follow-up, with adherence assessed by simply asking the patients about their adherence to prescribed activity. Patients’ activity levels at baseline (being at least somewhat physically active) and being issued home-based activities were significantly associated with higher adherence at 12 months.

  • Does a physical activity referral scheme improve the physical activity among routine primary health care patients?
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports. - 0905-7188 .- 1600-0838. ; 19:5, s. 627-636
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Physical activity referral (PAR) schemes or concepts occur in varying forms. Because few physical activity intervention studies have been carried out in routine health care settings, it is difficult to translate research findings into daily practice. The aim of this study was to analyze the effectiveness of a PAR scheme implemented in routine primary health care. The study did not include a control group and was based on the ordinary staff's work efforts and follow-up measures. During a 2-year period, 6300 PARs were issued. Effectiveness was measured by an increase in self-reported physical activity. Half of the patients reached reported increased physical activity both at 3 months (49%) and at 12 months (52%). The proportion of inactive patients decreased from 33% at baseline to 17% at 3 months and 20% at 12 months. The proportion of patients who were physically active on a regular basis increased from 22% at baseline to 33% at 3 months and 32% at 12 months. Neither the patient's age nor the profession of the prescriber was associated with differences in effectiveness. The patient's activity level at baseline, the type of physical activity as well as the reason for the prescription were associated with increased physical activity.
