    Operating theatre nurses' with managerial responsibility: Self-reported clinical competence and need of competence development in perioperative nursing2022In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 692-704Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate operating theatre nurses (OTNs) with managerial responsibility, and their self-rated clinical competence and need for competence development in perioperative nursing.

    DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was applied using a modified version of Professional Nurse Self-Assessment Scale of Clinical Core Competence I.

    METHOD: Data were collected from 303 OTNs in Sweden, 80 of whom indicated that they had managerial responsibility. Statistics analysis was used to identify the relationships between background variables to compare OTNs with and without managerial responsibility and their need for competence development.

    RESULTS: OTNs with an academic degree and managerial responsibility self-rated their clinical competence higher compared with OTNs without an academic degree. It also turned out that OTNs with RN education and 1-year advanced nursing in theatre care, and master's 60 credits had a lower need for competence development in cooperation and consultation, professional development and critical thinking.

    Experiences of parents whose school-aged children were treated with therapeutic hypothermia as newborns: A focus group study2023In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 10, no 11, p. 7411-7421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To describe parents' past and present experiences of their newborn infant's therapeutic hypothermia (TH) treatment after perinatal asphyxia 10-13 years after the event.

    Background: Newborn infants are treated with TH following perinatal asphyxia to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes.

    Design: A qualitative descriptive design using focus groups (FGs).

    Methods: Twenty one parents to 15 newborn infants treated with TH between 2007 and 2009 participated in five FGs. The FGs were transcribed verbatim and analysed using framework approach. The SRQR checklist was followed for study reporting.

    Results: Two main categories were identified: hardships and reliefs during TH treatment and struggles of everyday life. Both categories include three subcategories, the first: (1) concern and gratitude for the unrecognized treatment, (2) insufficiency of information and proposed participation and (3) NICU nurses instilled security and hope. The second with subcategories: (1) unprocessed experiences of the TH treatment, (2) later challenges at school and (3) existential and psychological challenges in everyday life.

    Conclusion: TH of their newborns affected the parents psychologically not only during the treatment, but lasted months and years later. Information and communication with health care professionals and school management were inefficient and inadequate. The parents' concerns could be prevented by an improved identification and understanding of the problems and the needs of the infants and their families before discharge.

    Relevance for Clinical Practice: Through more personalized and efficient preparation and communication by the nursing staff before discharge, many of the parents' worries and problems could be reduced. Check-up of parents' needs of psychosocial support before and after discharge and offering counselling should become routine. Also, nurses at Well-Baby Clinics and in school health care should receive knowledge about TH treatment and the challenges the children and the parents experience.

    Patient or Public Contribution: Participation of parents was limited to the data provided through interviews.

    The clinical learning environment during clinical practice in postgraduate district nursing students' education: a cross‐sectional study2023In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 879-888Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To describe and compare the clinical learning environment in community-based home care and primary health care in postgraduate district nursing students' education.DesignCross-sectional study design.

    Methods: A convenience sample of postgraduate district nursing students was derived from five Swedish universities in 2016 and 2017.

    Results: The postgraduate district nursing students were generally satisfied with the clinical learning environment in their clinical placement. In clinical placement, several factors affected the students' opportunities to learn, such as sufficiently meaningful learning situations with multidimensional content. A working environment that imposed psychosocial strain and high levels of stress among the staff negatively affected the students' learning. To further improve their learning from clinical practices, the students need preceptors who have the skills and competence required to support more advanced reflections and critical thinking on caring situations.

    Registered nurses' experience as disaster preparedness coordinators during a major incident: A qualitative study2022In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 329-338Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIMS: To explore registered nurses' experiences as disaster preparedness coordinators of hospital incident command groups' during a major incident.

    DESIGN: A qualitative descriptive design using semi-structured interview.

    METHODS: This was a qualitative study based on one focus group discussion and six individual follow-up interviews. Participants were registered nurses in their capacity as disaster preparedness coordinators with experience from Major Incident simulations and a real-life Major Incident. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed using content analysis. The COREQ checklist was used for reporting the findings.

    RESULTS: The analysis of data generated the main category: Expectations, previous experience and uncertainty affect hospital incident command group response during a Major Incident and three categories, (I) Gaining situational awareness (containing two subcategories), (II) Transitioning to management (containing three subcategories) and (III) Actions taken during uncertainty (containing two subcategories).

    Close relatives' perspective of critical illness due to COVID‐19: Keeping in touch at a distance2023In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 11, no 1, article id e2068Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To elucidate the meaning of being a close relative of a critically ill person cared for in intensive care during the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Design: A narrative inquiry design following the COREQ guidelines.

    Methods: Individual interviews with fifteen close relatives of patients critically ill with COVID-19 were analysed using phenomenological hermeneutics.

    Results: The  surreal  existence  of  not  being  allowed  to  be  near  was  emotionally difficult.  While  distancing  due  to  restrictions  was  challenging,  physicians'  phone calls  served  as  a  connection  to  their  relatives  and  brought  a  sense  of  security. Keeping  notes helped them remember what happened and brought order to a chaotic situation.

    Conclusion: Close relatives feel secure when they receive regular information about their critically ill relative, not just when their condition worsens. They wish to be physically near to their critically ill person; when this is impossible, digital technology can provide support, but further accessibility developments are needed.

    A qualitative study—Patient experience of tactile massage after stroke2020In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 7, no 5, p. 1446-1452Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim was to evaluate emotional experiences of gentle skin massage, combined with regular rehabilitation in patients shortly after being diagnosed with stroke. Design: A randomized study with two groups: standard individualized rehabilitation and tactile massage for 20 min three times per week (max nine times) or individual standardized rehabilitations. Methods: This study applied a qualitative approach using semi-structured questions to evaluate experiences of receiving tactile massage among patients with first-time-ever stroke. The interviews lasted between 6–25 min and analysed using manifest content analysis. Data was collected between 2015-2017. This study applies to the COREQ checklist. Results: Eight patients >18 years of age participated. The participants experienced emotional worries especially during the night hours affecting their sleep negatively. Receiving tactile massage was reported to relax and to ease worries and anxiety momentarily, during the session and for a longer period. The results also show that physical touch generates feelings of closeness. The findings will be presented in two categories: Human touch and The future. © 2020 The Authors.
