    The meaning of health among newly arrived immigrants: A qualitative study from stakeholders’ perspectives2023In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 43, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Good health is a prerequisite for individuals to function in everyday life. The same applies to newly arrived immigrants, where good health is crucial for successful establishment. The aim of this study was to describe stakeholders’ experiences of how newly arrived immigrants’ health affects their opportunities to establish themselves in society. The study had a qualitative design where open-ended questions were analysed following Braun and Clarke’s guidelines for conducting a qualitative thematic analysis. The results consist of three themes: Mental health problems, disabilities, and tormenting concerns about absent family members; A precarious life situation related to housing, education, and income; and Deficiencies in responding to health challenges in organisations and in society. Stakeholders face health problems among newly arrived immigrants that they do not have the right skills to deal with. We argue for the presence of nurses in organisations working with newly arrived immigrants, and that nurses’ competence is necessary to capture their needs.

    Patients’ self-assessed sleep as a nursing tool during hospital care: A pilot study2020In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 40, no 3, p. 123-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sleep in hospital is considered a challenge from both a patient and a nursing perspective. To enable nurses to promote patients? sleep during hospital care it is essential to have valid, reliable and useful sleep assessment tools at hand. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare the outcomes of objectively estimated sleep and self-reported sleep quality. Data were collected through continuous wrist-worn actigraphy and completion of the Richards?Campbell Sleep Questionnaire (RCSQ) in a pilot study on 25 patients during hospital care. A correlation between mean values for the two assessments was shown for the second night but not for the third night of assessment, and it was concluded that the two assessments might capture different dimensions of sleep. Furthermore, based on a high response rate and an evident feasibility in a nursing context the RCSQ may facilitate person-centered care.

    Global Nursing: Educating future nurses for tomorrow’s nursing care needs2017In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 172-174Article in journal (Other academic)
    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.

    A global nursing framework in the Swedish Red Cross undergraduate nursing program2018In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 167-174Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Applying the theory of human development by Erik and Joan Erikson when communicating with persons with advanced dementia diseases2022In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 178-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Persons with advanced dementia disease (ADD), here labelled PADDs, are shown to preserve parts of their self, which has opened up possibilities for involving them in their own care and establishing strategies for improving their communication with the surrounding world. Using the well-known theory of human development proposed by Erik and Joan Erikson, here labelled EJET, can operate as an efficient structure for formal caregivers to support PADDs in reclaiming their space. However, very few studies have used EJET as a framework in improving formal caregivers’ competence and the quality of care. This article aims to demonstrate the feasibility of applying EJET in the care of PADDs through two examples of successful application of this framework in interacting with PADDs in residential care settings. The examples demonstrate the significance of competent caregivers and the important role of tailoring nursing care plans to specific situations of the PADDs in their present and previous developmental phases.

    Experiences of a psychosocial intervention for patients with heart failure at one year after completion: A reflexive thematic analysis2023In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 43, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chronic heart failure is a common and a serious condition. Research has shown that chronic heart failure has been associated with detrimental effects on wellbeing. Coping effectiveness training (CET) has been applied for patients with heart failure to improve stress appraisal and stress management skills. The aim of this study was to explore the experience of participating in CET for patients with heart failure one year after completion. Eleven patients were interviewed. The study adheres to the SRQR guidelines. A thematic analysis generated three themes: rewarding but challenging to meet other people with heart failure; improved conditions to cope with stress; and not relevant to me. Implications for further development of the intervention were to include existential aspects, recognize comorbidities, test follow-up sessions and apply a codesign.

    Advocating for global health locally: Swedish Red Cross nurses as nursing activists for COVID-19 vaccination2023In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 43, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The COVID-19 vaccination has created turbulence in many communities. The dilemma has been particularly alive among health professionals such as nurses. As lecturers at the Swedish Red Cross University, whose academic profile is global nursing and global health, we promote the importance of the nursing profession as advocates for the COVID-19 vaccination. The main objective of this commentary is to reflect on the Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) fundamental tenet based on its principles in relation to nursing commitment beyond traditional responsibilities in times of pandemic when urgency, reactivity, and pedagogical health education become a priority. The notion of ‘globality’ and the contextualization and modernization of nursing responsibilities are associated with these professional reflections. We conclude that activism and advocacy, on issues crucial to planetary health and the advancement of social justice globally, are the responsibility of nurses. Furthermore, the liability of RCRC nurses is accentuated by the seven principles and the significance of humanity within the global perspective.

    Becoming a global nurse: A thematic and interpretive analysis of bachelor's theses at the Swedish Red Cross University College2021In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this study was to initiate the process of developing a comprehensive theoretical framework associating the three entities defining the Swedish Red Cross University College (SRCUC): global nursing, global health and Red Cross and Red Crescent's perspective (RCRC). To do so, an analysis of nursing bachelor's theses over two periods (2011–2012 and 2015–2016) was initially needed to capture the academic essence. Two specific aims were defined: 1) To describe how global nursing and global health, in conjunction with the RCRC perspective, were addressed and contextualized in nursing bachelor's theses; and 2) To investigate how students’ knowledge in global awareness and vision has developed over time. Two overarching themes were identified: Conceptualizing caring relations and moving towards the body of global awareness and Understanding the art of nursing and ethics in complex nursing actions. The Standards for Reporting Qualitative Research (SRQR) guidelines were used to ensure the trustworthiness of the findings. By promoting relevant knowledge, the SRCUC prepares future nurses for upcoming health needs at the planetary level.

    Forskningsdata från cyberrymden: Analys och vägledning utifrån vårdvetenskaplig kunskapsteori2015In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 91-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim The aim was to identify how ethical issues have been handled in theses written by undergraduate students in the field of nursing.

    Background The act of gathering information online to become an ‘expert’ by locating useful advice for oneself – and others – is a fairly new phenomenon. How virtual caring and nursing can contribute to people’s health as a resource is growing as an area of interest within the field of caring sciences.

    Methods A qualitative content analysis of 21 bachelor theses in nursing science was conducted. The analysis focused on how ethical issues concerning gathering data in cyberspace were handled.

    Findings The results show that the students chose very complex health issues when gathering data in cyberspace. The results reveal asymmetries between the researcher and subjects behind the data (the bloggers), both in terms of knowledge as well as in relation to the resources available to them.

    Conclusions There is a need to discuss cyberspace as a source of data, including ethical, ontological, and epistemological issues. Based on the findings, we provide a tentative outline of how data from cyberspace can be used by nursing researchers and instructors at all levels in the field.

    The rise of the avatar: Virtual dimensions of ‘the human’ in nursing science2015In: Nordic journal of nursing research, ISSN 2057-1585, E-ISSN 2057-1593, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 158-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this theory article, we discuss the virtual dimensions of the human, the avatar, in relation to ontological assumptions within nursing science. Assumptions in nursing science promote a ‘wholistic’ perspective of the human in terms of body, mind and spirit in relation to the environment. However, due to the enhanced technological development and the invention of cyberspace, we pose the critical question of whether the virtual dimension of identity really implicates a ‘wholistic’ view of human kindness or if this has been neglected. Furthermore, we suggest an ontological understanding that grasps new dimensions of humanity. In the article, we discuss the virtual dimensions of the human in relation to ontological assumptions within nursing science under the three headings of The techno-self and virtual identities, Techno-therapy and cyber nursing, and Becoming homo technicus. Due to these reflections, this article contributes to the debate on a postmodern understanding of human living conditions in society. We suggest further theoretical discussions to explore the conceptual and theoretical levels of nursing knowledge as new realities of human existence are introduced in the field. The transition into the digital age of the Internet, with the existence of cyborgs and avatars, is an ontological and epistemological challenge for nursing science that needs to be further investigated.
