Abstract [en]

Aim: Empathy is a crucial component of the nurse–patient relationship, but knowledge is lacking as to when empathy develops during nursing education. The aim of the present study was to compare empathy levels at different stages of undergraduate nursing education and different master's nursing programmes. Design: The design was a comparative cross-sectional study. Methods: A total of 329 participants in Sweden, comprised of nursing students in their second and sixth semesters in an undergraduate nursing programme as well as master's nursing students, rated their own empathy using the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy. Results: Students in their sixth semester in an undergraduate nursing programme expressed more empathy than did students in their second semester and master's nursing students. Among the five master's programmes, public-health nursing students expressed the most empathy and intensive-care nursing students the least.

Abstract [en]

Aim To describe how a short educational intervention in social insurance medicine was experienced by Registered Nurses and what changes it brought to their work with sick leave questions in telephone nursing. Design Qualitative explorative interview study. Methods Interviews with 12 purposively sampled Registered Nurses were conducted and analysed using manifest content analysis. Results The intervention increased Registered Nurses' knowledge of the sick leave process and changed their work habits as they now have more of the skills needed to handle sick leave questions. In this way, they gained role clarity in their work with sick leave questions. The new knowledge included rules and regulations, actors' roles and patients' experiences. Learning from peers, reflecting and having the opportunity to ask questions were also described as increasing their knowledge. The skills following the participation were described as knowing what to say and do and knowing where to turn for support.

Abstract [en]

Objective: To provide a synthesis of already synthesized literature on person-centered care and patient-centered care in order to identify similarities and differences between the two concepts. Methods: A synthesis of reviews was conducted to locate synthesized literature published between January 2000 and March 2017. A total of 21 articles deemed relevant to this overview were synthesized using a thematic analysis. Results: The analysis resulted in nine themes present in person-centered as well as in patient-centered care: (1) empathy, (2), respect (3), engagement, (4), relationship, (5) communication, (6) shared decision-making, (7) holistic focus, (8), individualized focus, and (9) coordinated care. The analysis also revealed that the goal of person-centered care is a meaningful life while the goal of patient-centered care is a functional life. Conclusions: While there are a number of similarities between the two concepts, the goals for person-centered and patient-centered care differ. The similarities are at the surface and there are important differences when the concepts are regarded in light of their different goals. Practice implications: Clarification of the concepts may assist practitioners to develop the relevant aspects of care. Person-centered care broadens and extends the perspective of patient-centered care by considering the whole life of the patient.

Abstract [en]

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), most common among elderly male smokers, often show no symptoms before rupture. To facilitate better care and counselling targeted to smoking cessation for these patients, more knowledge is required about their views. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to describe the views on AAA and smoking among male smokers with screening-detected AAA. A qualitative approach with individual interviews with 16 men with screening-detected AAA was applied. Three had quit smoking by the time of the interviews. Thematic analysis was performed, and four themes emerged: (i) accepting the course of life; (ii) the elusive AAA: a disturbing experiencing or merely a minor inconvenience?; (iii) being in safe hands; and (iv) smoking as an unexpected topic of discussion. Most of the participants felt they were in "safe hands", although thoughts about death were also evoked. However, the information about smoking cessation was unexpected, and the relationship between AAA and smoking unclear. Presenting the connection between AAA and smoking in a clear manner and motivating smoking cessation in an individually-targeted way are important.

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the nature, potential usefulness and meaning of complaints lodged by patients and their relatives. DESIGN: A retrospective, descriptive design was used. SETTING: The study was based on a sample of formal patient complaints made through a patient complaint reporting system for publicly funded healthcare services in Sweden. PARTICIPANTS: A systematic random sample of 170 patient complaints was yielded from a total of 5689 patient complaints made in a Swedish county in 2015. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Themes emerging from patient complaints analysed using a qualitative thematic method. RESULTS: The patient complaints reported patients' or their relatives' experiences of disadvantages and problems faced when seeking healthcare services. The meanings of the complaints reflected six themes regarding access to healthcare services, continuity and follow-up, incidents and patient harm, communication, attitudes and approaches, and healthcare options pursued against the patient's wishes. CONCLUSIONS: The patient complaints analysed in this study clearly indicate a number of specific areas that commonly give rise to dissatisfaction; however, the key findings point to the significance of patients' exposure and vulnerability. The findings suggest that communication needs to be improved overall and that patient vulnerability could be successfully reduced with a strong interpersonal focus. Prerequisites for meeting patients' needs include accounting for patients' preferences and views both at the individual and organizational levels.
