Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund I mitten på 2010-talet befann sig runt 65 miljoner människor på flykt runt om i världen på grund av krig, katastrofer och väpnade konflikter. Många människor flydde för sina liv och sökte skydd och fristad i Europa och Sverige. På lokal nivå anlitades ofta rödakorskretsar i det humanitära bemötandet och omhändertagandet av dessa människor. Delvis var detta en ny situation och erfarenhet för frivilligarbetare. Syfte Syftet med forskningsprojektet var att undersöka hur frivilliga beskriver och resonerar kring lokala och globala utmaningar relaterade till demografiska förändringar, med fokus på personer som är på flykt och är i behov av humanitära frivilliginsatser. Metod Data har samlats in via fokusgruppsintervjuer i tre olika kretsar i Mellansverige. Intervjuerna genomfördes på tre olika nivåer i varje krets, med frivilliga, frivilligledare och kretsstyrelse. Resultat De transkriberade intervjuerna analyserades tematiskt och följande teman identifierades; Erfarenheter från flyktingströmmen 2015, Kärnan i frivilligt arbete inom Svenska Röda Korset, Förvalta och bevara, men också tänka nytt, Tredje sektorns betydelse och frivillighet under ansvar, Tankar framåt och fortsatt arbete i rödakorskretsarna. Slutsatser och framåtblickar Några paradoxer och framtida utmaningar identifierades. Utmaningarna tycks ligga i att kunna överbrygga och tänka ”både och” i stället för ”antingen eller” vad gäller frivilligas traditionella villkor i relation till vad som kan utvecklas, i en tid där frivilligverksamhet kommer att få en alltmer betydande roll i det svenska samhället.

Abstract [en]

Alongside a globalized world and a demographic shift in Sweden, future nurses must provide globally significant nursing care based on relevant knowledges and skills. To contribute to the global nursing discourse, this article aims to describe the process undertaken in developing and implementing a global nursing approach and curriculum in the Swedish Red Cross undergraduate nursing program. A comprehensive process of educational change was carried out, targeting both faculty and students with various academic activities. The new global-oriented curriculum was evaluated positively by nursing students, and a definition of global nursing was disseminated among educators. Nursing students at the Swedish Red Cross University College are now encouraged to advocate for vulnerable persons in need of healthcare services and to counteract inequalities and social injustice in sustainable ways. It is suggested that a global nursing framework is what is required when educating nurses to meet tomorrow’s nursing care needs.

Abstract [en]

Background: Positioned to face increasing issues relating to the growing and aging population, ill health, climate change, natural disasters, and humanitarian crises, nurses play a crucial role in responding to the challenges of globalisation. With nurses rising to meet these challenges, the term ‘global nursing’ has been coined. Given the ongoing proliferation of the term, it seems relevant to explore the key relationship of the concepts of ‘global’ and ‘nursing’ within the milieus provided through the internet.

Aim: To describe how global nursing as a concept is visualised in images on the internet.

Method: A cross-sectional observational design based on netnographic methodology was conducted. By searching the term ‘global nursing’ in the Google search engine, a total of 973 images illustrating ‘global nursing’ were collected and stored on one specific search occasion. The inclusion of data covered all regions but no other search limits.

Results: The results show that global nursing, first and foremost, is visualised as an academic discourse, as a nursing activity, and as an approach to target sustainability. Further, the results also highlight that global nursing has manifested as a Western discourse, targeting students with access to resources and a humanitarian interest. Conclusion: By paying attention to global nursing as it is presented in this study, it has been possible to provide valuable insights about colonial boundaries in the nursing discourse relating to globality. Based on these results, we stress that the nursing paradigm would benefit from a greater postcolonial awareness and some reflexivity connected with the global issues that nurses are facing.

Impact statement: Global nursing is paradoxically visualised as something distant, connected to ideas of ‘otherness’, and of not belonging to the Western nursing community

Abstract [en]

This study seeks to describe how the composition of the physical care environment conditions relatives' involvement in nursing home institutions. It is well known that the physical care environment in institutions has a significant impact on the well-being of residents and the work satisfaction of nursing staff. Less explored is how physical care environmental factors are related to the involvement of relatives in nursing homes. A visual analysis of 52 photographs from three nursing homes in Sweden shows how the physical environment acts to condition the involvement of relatives through the use of design, information displays, and cultural symbols. Although various aspects of the physical environment promoted participation of relatives, that engagement was based on certain limited concepts of involvement. This suggests that other conceptual frameworks of involvement in nursing homes are possible, and that these might encourage other aspects of involvement from the relatives of nursing home residents.

Abstract [en]

The world has witnessed the most comprehensive refugee diaspora of modern history. Sweden has been one of the countriesthat has welcomed people and given them refuge. Refugees are in need of quality nursing care that is provided by professionaland knowledgeable registered nurses. However, taking into account this global mobility and the resulting shift in demographiccharacteristics, nurses need to be particularly competent in relation to addressing global issues. The question is, are futurenurses educated with enough relevant knowledge and skills to be able to meet tomorrow’s nursing care needs? The SwedishRed Cross University College (SRCUC) has contributed to the global discourse in several aspects, not least those elementsrelated to the International Red Cross tradition and its basic humanitarian principles. We would like to share the stipulateddefinition that guides our subject profile area: global nursing. To answer the question that first concerned the SRCUC, wepreviously had conducted a traditional undergraduate nursing education that needed to be updated in relation to what is nowhappening globally. By developing and promoting the relevant knowledge and skills in global nursing, we believe that futurenurses will be prepared to accommodate tomorrow’s nursing care needs.

Abstract [en]

Background: Nurses are on the forefront and play a key role in global disaster responses. Nevertheless, they are often not prepared for the challenges they are facing and research is scarce regarding the nursing skills required for first responders during a disaster situation.Objectives: To investigate how returnee nursing staff experienced deployment before, during and after having worked for the Red Cross at an Ebola Treatment Center in Kenema, West Africa, and to supply knowledge on how to better prepare and support staff for viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks.Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional approach. Questionnaires were administered to nurses having worked with patients suffering from Ebola in 2014 and 2015. Data collection covered aspects of pre-, during and post-deployment on clinical training, personal health, stress management, leadership styles, socio-cultural exposure and knowledge transfer, as well as attitudes from others. Data was analysed using both quantitative and qualitative methods.Results: Response-rate was 88%: forty-four nurses from 15 different countries outside West Africa answered the questionnaire. The respondents identified the following needs for improvement: increased mental health and psychosocial support and hands-on coping strategies with focus on pre- and post-deployment; more pre-deployment task-oriented clinical training; and workload reduction, as exhaustion is a risk for safety.Conclusions: This study supplies knowledge on how to better prepare health care staff for future viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks and other disasters. Participants were satisfied with their pre-deployment physical health preparation, whereas they stressed the importance of mental health support combined with psychosocial support after deployment. Furthermore, additional pre-clinical training was requested.

Abstract [en]

Background: In February 2014, the first Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) case in West Africa was confirmed in the Republic of Guinea. It then quickly spread to neighbouring countries, and became the largest Ebola outbreak ever. By March 2016, there was reported 28,639 cases of EVD and 11,316 deaths worldwide. As the largest humanitarian network in the world, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) played an active role in stopping the spread of the deadly virus. IFRC also provided psychosocial support to affected families, and assisted in the management of dead bodies. Previous research concerning the Ebola outbreak has focused on practical guidance, such as protective equipment, protective behaviours infection control and emergency management. Very few studies have focused on health care staff’s own experiences from caring for these patients under very extreme conditions. Nurses play a key role in global disaster response at disaster centers, nevertheless, they are often not prepared for the challenges they are facing and what nursing skills that are required by nurses who are first responders to a disaster situation.

Objectives: To investigate how returnee nursing staff experienced their deployment before, during and after having worked at an Ebola Treatment Center (ETC) during an acute viral haemorrhagic fever (VHF) outbreak, and to supply knowledge on how to better prepare health care staff for future VHF outbreaks.

Design: A cross-sectional approach.

Participants: Nurses having returned after working with Ebola patients at an ETC in Kenema, Sierra Leone, during 2014 and 2015.

Measurements: Data were collected through a self-administered questionnaire via mail covering aspects of pre-deployment training, personal health and stress management, leadership styles and knowledge transfer, socio-cultural exposure, and attitudes from others when returning home.

Results: Before employment, there is a need for practical exercises specific for the task, and information adapted to the mission. Further, information to family and colleagues can be deepen. During employment, the participants are in need of interpersonal contacts, team work and strong dynamics. After deployment there is a need for mental health support and hands-on coping strategies.

Conclusions: Participants stressed the importance of mental health support combined with psychosocial care after deployment. There is also a need for more specific practical training. An active dialogue and communication with colleagues were perceived as primordial, and information given to family and colleagues was relevant but not sufficient.
