    Understanding The Global Nursing perspective2018In: Open Access Journal of Nursing, ISSN 2639-1783, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 77-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A critical consideration of the global nursing perspective is recommended when advocating enhanced global awareness in nursing practice, education and research. Adequate knowledge transfers in global nursing are noted when nurses make appropriate choices in care actions and identify power hierarchies. The utilisation of nurses’ professional competence with respect to vulnerability in health is suggested and by focusing on inequalities in health and social justice issues in existing care hierarchies, an advancement of the patterns in global nursing discipline can be observed. This paper postulates that the global nursing discourse can be applied in nursing practice, education and research and make a contribution to equal healthcare.

    Perfectionism in Eating Disorders: Are Long-Term Outcomes Influenced by Extent and Changeability in Initial Perfectionism?2018In: Journal for Person-Oriented Research, ISSN 2002-0244, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 1-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Perfectionism has been found to predict outcomes in the treatment of eating disorders (ED). In the present study, we took advantage of longitudinal data to: a) investigate whether there are different patterns of perfectionism during the first six months after admission in a clinical sample of patients with ED, and b) describe how these patterns are related to long-term outcome. Methods: A sample of patients (N=294) from the Coordinated Evaluation and Research at Specialized Units for Eating Disorders database was divided into clusters according to perfectionism patterns measured with the EDI-2 perfectionism scale at baseline, and six months in treatment. Cluster analysis was performed on the extent and perseverance/changeability of self-oriented and socially described perfectionism. Outcome was measured with the EDI-2 and the SCL-63. Frequencies of eating disorder diagnoses were investigated. Results: Five clusters were identified. Low perfectionism was associated with lower levels of ED and psychiatric symptomatology at baseline. There were no significant differences between clusters on outcome variables at 36-month follow-up. Conclusions: Results indicated better psychiatric and psychological health three years after the initial measure. Patterns of relations between the extent and possible changes of perfectionism, measured with the EDI-P at baseline and after six months, did not appear to be associated with long-term outcomes on psychiatric health ratings.

    Team Training, A Prerequisite of Being Safe in a Technological Environment, A Pediatric Operating Theater2018In: Acta Scientific Paediatrics, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 18-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We all know that the digitalization is here to stay, so also in the children’s operating theater. We also know that effective teamwork is crucial for safe surgery. Changes in demographic trends and new surgical and technological innovations require close collaboration with other disciplines for a number of reasons [1]. Despite the advances in technology, making healthcare safer depends, not on minimizing the human contribution but on understanding how people, look ahead, overcome hazards and, in effect, create safety [2]. This is very true in a high technological environment that has become utterly specialized and digitalized during the last decade. As the technical devices becomes more and more complex we require another approach for interprofessional collaboration in the operating theater to keep the child safe during the operation. Especially a breakdown in communication, poor teamwork, lack of leadership and poor decision making by individuals and teams have all been shown to be major contributors to adverse events [3].
