Biography [eng]

I am a senior lecturer in nursing care. I teach and research mainly in the subject of technical care science, which is an interdisciplinary subject and under our research technology and health. I also have a mission as a teacher representative in the education board at the school.

My research mainly involves people's active participation and participation from a nursing and health perspective in a high-tech environment. I explore how technological development and digitization affect learning, health care and health in everyday life, for professions, institutions and society. Researching how technological development affects learning, health and health means I'm interested in interactive processes that take place in a high-tech environment for longer or shorter time and what this means for nursing development in education, clinics and homes. I am also a research group leader for the research group MENT, Medical Education and Nursing Care in Technological environments, which is part of the Research Council of the Red Cross University of Health and Technical Development. I participate in a number of projects, national as well as international. Currently, I am a research leader for the project "See Me, Listen to Me, Meet Me", which focuses on the ability of children, parents and employees to participate, self-determination and learning in different clinical contexts and from different actors’ perspectives. 

 

 

Biography [swe]

Jag är lektor i omvårdnad och programansvarig för specialistutbildningen med inriktning intensivvård vid Röda Korsets Högskola. Jag undervisar och forskar främst inom ämnet teknisk vårdvetenskap. Jag har även ett uppdrag som lärarrepresentant i utbildningsnämnden vid skolan. Jag är ledamot i Intensivvårdsföreningens utbildningsråd samt är ledamot i Karolinska Sjukhusets FoU-råd.

Jag leder forskargruppen MENT; Medical Education and Nursing care in Technological environments som i dagsläget ett tiotal aktiva medverkande från akademi och klinik. Som forskningsgruppsledare för MENT medverkar jag i ett flertal nationella samt internationella projekt samt leder det egna projektet ”Se mig, lyssna till mig, möt mig” som undersöker barns, föräldrars och medarbetares möjlighet till delaktighet, självbestämmande samt lärande i olika kliniska kontext. Att beforska hur teknisk utveckling påverkar lärande, vård och hälsa innebär att jag intresserar mig för interaktiva processer som sker i en högteknologisk miljö under längre eller kortare tid samt vad detta betyder för omvårdnadens utveckling inom utbildning, klinik och hemmet.

 

Inom MENT arbetar vi med att överbrygga avstånd som ibland finns emellan akademi och klinik och tillsammans utveckla kunskap om människors aktiva medverkan och delaktighet ur omvårdnads- och hälsoperspektiv inom högteknologiska vårdmiljöer. Frågor som belyses är hur teknisk utveckling och digitalisering påverkar lärande, vård och hälsa i vardagsliv, för professioner, institutioner och samhället.

 

Jag handleder för närvarande två doktorander och har varit författare till flera publikationer.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Substance withdrawal is one of the most common advert events in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), as the administration of potent opiates and sedative drugs is frequently performed several times each day.

Objectives: The present study explored the challenges in nursing care of children with substance withdrawal syndrome inthe PICU.

Method: The study has an explorative and descriptive semi-structured qualitative interview design, with a strategic selection of informants. It was conducted at one out of three pediatric intensive care units in Sweden.

Results: Three different main themes were identified describing the different challenges regarding withdrawal symptoms: monitor the child’s interest, work with structured support, and understand the observation.

Conclusions: There is a discrepancy between the medical perspective and the nursing care perspective regarding children in PICU suffering from withdrawal syndrome. The lack of joint guidelines, language, and nursing diagnoses may lead to subjective evaluations and increase suffering for these children.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: The field of geriatric psychiatry has in recent decades developed into an independent discipline, incorporating elements of psychiatry, neurology and internal medicine. In view of demographic changes, this field is becoming increasingly relevant for primary care and undergraduate medical training. So far, however, there is little educational guidance for instructional design of geriatric psychiatry in undergraduate medical education.

Project description: A narrative literature review of medical education studies in the field of geriatric psychiatry was conducted. Student evaluations of a geriatric psychiatry clerkship seminar were analyzed, followed by a target group analysis. Results informed the iterative development of new clerkship seminar content and structure. This was implemented and evaluated over several academic cycles. Learning material was made available via the open-source learning management system “ILIAS”.

Results: A total of 29 medical education articles were identified and evaluated. The previous seminar in geriatric psychiatry at our university hospital was rated below average (Likert item overall rating of 4.3/6 compared to other seminars with an average overall rating of 5.2, p<0.001). An evidence-oriented revision of the content and instructional design was implemented. Activation of learners, self-reference effect, and audience questioning were used during the lecture. Additionally, two geriatric psychiatry case scenarios were adapted for discussion. We saw continuous improvement of student evaluations of the revised course, reaching a rating improvement of 5.3 out of 6 (p<0.01, U=135.5 Cohen’s d=1.28).

Conclusion: A systematic approach was used to develop a geriatric psychiatry clerkship seminar, based on medical education evidence, for undergraduate medical students, resulting in better student evaluations. The teaching materials can be adapted for local implementation at other teaching hospitals. Future studies should also explore effects regarding higher learning outcomes.

Abstract [en]

AIM: To describe how children in Sweden accessed and perceived information about SARS-CoV2 and Covid-19 during the first phase of the outbreak.

METHODS: This study is a substudy of an international cross-sectional online mixed methods survey examining elements of children's health literacy in relation to Covid-19. The survey included multiple-choice questions, open-ended questions and drawings and collected information from 50 Swedish children (7-12 years). Data were analysed concurrently on a descriptive level using statistics and content analysis. Quantitative and qualitative data, including the drawings, were considered equally important and resulted in six categories, illuminating how children accessed and perceived information about the pandemic.

RESULTS: The survey showed that children accessed information mainly from school but also from TV. They preferred information from reliable sources. Children reported the information they accessed as easy to understand and it prompted them to ask new questions. They reported they knew a lot about the pandemic, for example, the potential danger to themselves and others and how to act to protect themselves and others. They perceived the pandemic as an intrusion on their lives.

CONCLUSIONS: This study indicates that Swedish children between 7 and 12 years old were well informed about SARS-CoV2 and Covid-19 during the first phase of the pandemic. School was shown to be an important source of information. The children could explain how to act to protect themselves and others from becoming infected by the virus.

Abstract [en]

Objective: The psychiatric mental status examination is a fundamental aspect of the psychiatric clinical interview. However, despite its importance, little emphasis has been given to evidence-based instructional design. Therefore, this review summarizes the literature from an instructional design perspective with the aim of uncovering design strategies that have been used for teaching the psychiatric interview and mental status examination to health professionals.

Methods: The authors conducted a scoping review. Multiple databases, reference lists, and the gray literature were searched forrelevant publications across educational levels and professions. A cognitive task analysis and an instructional design framework was used to summarize and chart the findings.

Results: A total of 61 articles from 17 countries in six disciplines and three educational levels were identified for data extractionand analysis. Most studies were from the USA, presented as educational case reports, and carried out in undergraduate education in the field of psychiatry. Few articles described the instructional rationale for their curriculum. None of the studies compared the effectiveness of different instructional design components. Reported learning activities for each task domain (knowledge, skills,and attitudes) and for each step of an instructional design process were charted. Most articles reported the use of introductory seminars or lectures in combination with digital learning material (videos and virtual patients in more recent publications) and role-play exercises.

Conclusions: Educators in psychiatry should consider all task domains of the psychiatric interview and mental status examination. Currently, there is a lack of empirical research on expertise acquisition and use of instructional design frameworks in this context

Abstract [en]

Background: The organ donor process is challenging, not at least for intensive care nurses. The situation changes radically, from intensively working to save the patient’s life to instead caring for the donor patient’s organs so that those, in turn, can save another patient’s life. The donation process challenges nurses’ view on what dignified caring at end-of-life entails. The inner core of caring comprises love, mercy and compassion. Dignified caring is related to treating the patient as a unique human being and respecting human value, rooted in the theory of caritative caring that is the framework for this study.   

Aim: The aim was to illuminate intensive care nurses’ experiences of caring during the organ donor process, from a caring science perspective.

Methodology: A descriptive research design including inductive qualitative content analysis of interviews with twelve intensive care nurses in Sweden about their experiences of caring during the donor process.

Results: The theme The complexity of caring during the organ donor process with two categories and five subcategories was generated. Intensive care nurses experienced caring during the donor process as being complex in relation to the potential donor patient and patient’s family as well as communication, teamwork and organization. Caring affects not only the patient and families, but also the nurses and receivers of the donated organs. Intensive care nurses perceive the other’s life situation as if it were their own and recognize the importance of shared humanity.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Nursing staff have faced various challenges during the global pandemic of COVID-19 such as nursing shortages. The great number of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization placed heavy demands on healthcare staff to maintain patient safety and to work according to constantly changing guidelines to prevent the spread of infection.

Objective: The objective was to describe nurses’ experiences of caring for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the initial phase of the pandemic.

Methods: The study has a qualitative design. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with seven nurses in primary care and hospital care during the initial stage of the pandemic. Qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach was used.

Results: The nurses expressed that the working routines changed very quickly at the onset of the pandemic. A triage system was implemented to care for patients with symptoms of COVID-19 to prevent transmission between patients. A major change was the constant use of personal protective equipment in patient care. The nurses also experienced a sense of inadequacy regarding the care of the patients and became emotionally affected and exhausted.

Conclusion: The nurses experienced that many patients worsened clinically, leading to exhausting and difficult nursing care situations. They also experienced increasing responsibility since new protective equipment and procedures needed to be quickly implemented according to frequently changing recommendations, causing the nurses to feel uncertain about how to maintain patient safety. Support from colleagues was crucial to cope throughout the initial stage of the pandemic.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Home mechanical ventilation is an established method to support children suffering from chronic respiratory insufficiency, still more research is needed regarding mechanically ventilated children’s and adolescents’ quality of life (QoL). Therefore, the aim of this scoping review was to explore research regarding QoL and lived experience of children and adolescents with home mechanical ventilation. 

Methods: A scoping review with systematic searches for research studies published between year 2000–2020 was performed in Cinahl, Medline, and PubMed. Studies that met the inclusion criteria were quality assessed and a thematic analysis was performed.

Results: In total, ten articles were quality assessed and included in the results. Four themes emerged: Children’s self-reported QoL, Parents’ perception and parent-proxy report, Differences between the child’s and parent’s perception, and challenges in daily life. Children with home mechanical ventilation reported a lower QoL than healthy children and children with other chronic diseases. Generally, parents rate their child’s QoL lower than the children themselves.

Conclusion: This is the first literature review focusing on HMV in the paediatric population. It is clear that HMV does not only affect the treated child or adolescent but also the whole family. It is important to regularly measure and evaluate QoL in children and adolescents with
