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]

Caring for dying children is complex and requires coordination of all resources. In PICU the main objective is to save lives and ensure vital functions in critically ill children. However due to the child’s critical and life-threatening condition, there is always the possibility the child will not survive. The acuity and technical nature of the intensive care context can provide an obstacle in the transition to palliative care and furthermore conflict with the affected families’ needs. The study aim was to enlightening caring as it is represented in caring situations of dying children at PICU. An Interpretative Phenomenological design was applied. The data collection was performed at three PICU in Sweden in two different occasions at 2011 and 2016 [1,2]. Caring situations of a total of 18 children were observed, of these five cases were estimated as end of life care or lifethreatening conditions. Additionally, nurses and parents were interviewed in direct connection to the observation. Results showed that for nurses, it was a challenge to change perspective from curative to palliative care. Furthermore, medical examinations and treatment was experienced to disturb the dying child thus causing unnecessary suffering. Parents found it difficult to leave their dying children even just for a moment. At the same time the space in PICU usually did not support closeness and parenting but rather separated the dying child from her/his family. In conclusion, since it isn´t possible to always care for dying children in specialized palliative care units these results illuminate the importance of guidelines and training in palliative care in PICU and other acute pediatric care units. Children and their family ought to have the best care possibly when affected by life-limiting or life-threatening illness.

Abstract [en]

This study examines and describe the ambulance nurse's experience of nursing documentation in single responderand the transfer of the documentation to other care levels. A qualitative design was used with focus groupinterviews as data collection method to enhance knowledge of the everyday experience of nursing documentation.The ambulance service in Sweden is a profession in transition that evolved from being a transport organization toprovide advanced medical care and nursing. However, all patients do not need advanced medical treatment and theSingle responder is an alternative resource to the ambulance that is used when no life-threatening conditions exists.However, the nurse faces a number of challenges when documenting nursing care interventions related totechnological development and the mismatch between the care offered and people's demands and needs. Even thoughnursing care documentation is key to enhance and develop patient safety within a young field as ambulance service.There is a lack of a coherent documentation system and two themes emerged through content analyzeswhich conveyed how nursing care becomes invisible and how nursing care interventions are communicated througha hidden language. There are serious shortcomings in the transfer of nursing documentation to other care levels aswell as deficiencies in the nursing documentation. Which jeopardizes the quality of care and patient safety as well asa systematic development of nursing care in this field.

Abstract [en]

Relatives to patients that has been undergoing resuscitation attempts, where no family members have been allowed to stay in the room, describe their greatest fear as being separated from the patient if he or she did not survive [1]. From the child’s perspective when hospitalized in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), collaboration between healthcare professionals, parents and the child, if possible, is a prerequisite for god nursing care. The child is also entitled to have a parent or other relative with them 24 hours a day [2]. From the parent’s perspective many situations in the PICU feels chaotic and unreal, the worst situations are when they are not given the opportunity to be close to their child and being involved in the care [3,4]. Observing the healthcare staff working intensively is perceived as very stressful and the parents are filled with much fear [4].

Abstract [en]

Background: Today mobil phones has been incorporated in our daily lives to such an extent that they are used in the operating theater for both professional and private matters. The advantages and disadvantages associated with the use of mobile phones in the healthcare sector are described in studies.

Aim: To describe healthcare professionals use and managing of professional phones and private mobile phones in the operating theater.

Method: The design is a descriptive cross-sectional study with 40 structured observations in the operating theater and a questionnaire survey. The study was conducted in three surgical departments at a Swedish children's hospital. The participants were anesthetic nurses, physicians, operating theater nurses and assistant nurses. Data was analyzed descriptively in SPSS.

Result: The observations showed that of 477 phone uses, 287 (60.2%) were private mobile phones and 190 (39.8%)professional phones. The adherence to basal hygiene guidelines before and after telephone use, n = 477, was 93 (19.4%) and 103 (21.5%), respectively. The questionnaire showed that 9 (27.2%) of the participants experienced daily that the use of private mobile phones disturbed team members in the operating theater. Eight (24, 2%) of participants experienced daily, 7 (21.7%) weekly, employees became less concentrated due to the use of private mobile phones.

Conclusion: Increased compliance with basic hand hygiene guidelines, designing policies regarding the use of private mobile phones in the operating theater and a discussion concerning what is ethically correct in relation to the patients can be considered essential. Further studies are needed for continued exploration of the use and managing of mobile phones in the operating theater.

Abstract [en]

Background: In the last decade, research has highlighted the importance of interprofessional approaches to education and practice. Collaboration between medical practice and engineering has been identified as particularly relevant to developing accountable models for sustainable healthcare and overcoming increased specialization leading to professional barriers. This study aims to analyze insights and understanding expressed by nursing students and biomedical engineering students following a joint learning activity regarding a medical device used in the hospital setting.

Method: A qualitative approach deriving from a phenomenological view examined an interprofessional learning activity where the focus was on active integration and knowledge exchange.

Conclusion: The activity was expressed as a positive opportunity for getting insights into perspectives from other professional groups as well as insights into the importance of a system perspective in patient safety. The learning and insights listed in the evaluations included ideas about how the two professional groups could collaborate in the future.

Abstract [en]

In the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) family- and childcentered care does not have the same prepared tools to relay on as, for example, neonatal care. In neonatal care the parents are quickly involved in the child's care. The caring philosophy NIDCAP (Newborn individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program) and SFS-Situation adapted family co-operation, are both adapted for the child and for the parents. Both these "utensils" are based on individualizing the nursing care from a family-centered perspective. However, the same prepared tools or tools are not available from a child-centered care perspective, which gives the child a disadvantage and every act of involvement rests upon the nurse’s knowledge and ability to vindicate such child centered care in the caring situation [1]. According to the United Nations Convention on Children's Rights [2], the child´s best interest needs to be put firsthand when health and medical care is given to children. The idea is that the child should be in the center. The focus is thus moved from a family-centered perspective, to a child-centered perspective.

Abstract [en]

Background: Meeting with health care gets short before and after the operation. The difficulty at the day surgery is that preparation and information take place in close proximity to the operation. Health professionals must not only take care of the child during the medical visit, but also of the accompanying parent, too. Parents’ participation in the perioperative care, sometimes unable to attend.

Aim: This study aims to investigate how parental involvement in the perioperative a process can be facilitated.

Method: A qualitative design based on observations and interviews with semi structured questions with open answers. Results: The results conveyed involvement in the child’s perioperative process in diverse ways and to a different depth. This is highlighted in the theme Allowed with the under themes Security and Being accepted. However, the theme Exclusion with the under-theme Rejection revealed a non-caring approach where no caring relation could be established. Quotes from the transcribed material are used to highlight the results.

Conclusion: The study’s findings confirm earlier studies in the perspective that information is of central importance in enabling parents to be involved in the perioperative process. The results showed that parents’ involvement in the perioperative process is a prerequisite for creating safety in the child and reducing concerns in connection with the operation. Parental involvement may be hindered by a conventional approach that does not include the child’s perspective.
