    A global workspace is the emerging reality for future public health workforce2017In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 94, no 3, 132-140 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an urgent need to train public health professionals at undergraduate level who can face global challenges that are due to longstanding conflicts, increasing number of displaced people, natural disasters, and growing inequalities between and within countries. Future public health professionals will lead activities ranging from national and international community planning, strategic work geared towards integration of migrants and crisis management of refugees, and humanitarian services. Consequently, the need for public health professionals with deep and wide theoretical and practical competencies in global contexts has become most relevant. In response to this need, The Swedish Red Cross University College has created such a programme leading to a Bachelor degree in Public Health Science, specialization Global Health.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det föreligger ett akut behov att utbilda folkhälsovetare på grundnivå och som kan möta de globala utmaningarna. Hälsoutmaningarna förändras i takt med långvariga konflikter, människor på flykt, stora katastrofer och en ökande ojämlikhet mellan och inom länder, i en omvärld som är i ständig rörelse. Dagens och morgondagens folkhälsovetare ska kunna arbeta med olika aktörer på skilda arenor; med hälso- och sjukdomsprevention kommunalt, regionalt, nationellt (regering, myndigheter) och internationellt (europeiskt och globalt). Det innefattar även integrationsarbete, internationellt biståndsarbete och humanitärt arbete. Behovet av professionella folkhälsovetare med breda och djupa teoretiska och praktiska kompetenser i globala sammanhang har därför blivit högst relevant. Därför agerar nu Röda Korsets Högskola och startar ett folkhälsovetenskapligt program på kandidatnivå med global inriktning.

    Abstract [en]

    Background Endometriosis is a chronic gynaecological disease that affects approximately ten percent of women of childbearing age. Despite this fact, there continues to be a lack of knowledge regarding the disease. Pain in connection to menstruation is normalized, thus the diagnosis of endometriosis can take many years and cause suffering for women. Aim The aim was to investigate how women diagnosed with endometriosis experience that the disease affects their quality of life (QoL). Method A general literature review was conducted based on ten qualitative studies published between 2004-2016. Result Women experience that all dimensions of quality of life are affected by endometriosis. Four themes illustrate how women experienced how the disease affected their QoL: The disease's impact on everyday life, The disease's impact on work and education, The disease's influence on relationships and fertility and Distrust and lack of support in health care. Conclusion Healthcare professionals play a significant role in supporting endometriosis patients and give them the qualifications and resources to take control of their illness in order to increase their perceived quality of life. Implications Continued research on endometriosis, both from a medical and from a nursing perspective, is recommended.
