Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to explore how family members experienced the use of a diary when a relative does not survive the stay in the intensive care unit (ICU).

METHOD: A qualitative method with a hermeneutic approach was used. Nine participants who read/wrote eight diaries in total were interviewed. The collected data were analysed using a hermeneutic technique inspired by Geanellos.

FINDINGS: The analysis revealed an overall theme 'the diary was experienced as a bridge connecting the past with the future', which was a metaphor referring to the temporal aspect where there was the period with the diary up until the patient's death and then the postbereavement period. The diary contributed to both a rational and emotional understanding of the death of the patient and disclosed glimmers of light that still existed before the illness deteriorated. Further, the diary bridged the space between family members themselves and between family and nursing staff. It helped to maintain a feeling of togetherness and engagement in the care of the patient which family members found comforting.

CONCLUSION: Family members of nonsurvivors had a need to have the ICU time explained and expressed. The diary might work as a form of 'survival kit' to gain coherence and understanding; to meet their needs during the hospital stay; and, finally, to act as a bereavement support by processing the death of the patient.

Abstract [en]

In Sweden, the understanding of processes of radicalization and the development of preventive work against violent extremism can be said to be framed by a few specific political decisions that were formative for the policies developed. These are dealt with in the text. Among other things, the result shows that the security discourse and preventive work are often mixed up at the policy level, which has repercussions in research and prevention. One important key to developing the work on security and prevention lies in the need for further knowledge development regarding everything from methods and field studies to policy practices. Apart from providing an account of developments in Sweden, there are also arguments for a more skeptical, reflexive, and critical attitude towards all forms of simplified categorizations of young people, which risks stigmatizing individuals and groups. By starting from a critical and reflexive social education perspective, it will become possible to contribute to understanding and to an analysis of social contexts, risks, and negative spirals. The ambition of trying to predict which individuals will potentially commit crimes of terror represents a dead end. On the other hand, there are possibilities of identifying risk environments, subcultural groups that cultivate extreme opinions, and then to approach these groups in various ways in order to develop effective social pedagogical work and positive and GLM-based trajectories for young people at risk for radicalisation.

Abstract [sv]

På relativt kort tid har arbetet med förebyggande socialpolitiska åtgärder mot våldsbejakande extremism kommit att få stor uppmärksamhet i Sverige. Föreliggande text är en kortfattad kunskapsöversikt med fokus på ungas radikalisering och våldsbejakande extremism. Texten utgör en första delrapport i ett Erasmus-finansierat projekt kallat Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project (YEIP). I Sverige kan förståelsen för radikaliseringsprocesser och utvecklandet av preventionsarbetet mot våldsbejakande extremism sägas vara inramat av några specifika politiska beslut som varit formativa för de policys som utvecklats. Dessa behandlas utförligt i texten. Bland annat visar resultaten att säkerhetsdiskursen och det preventiva arbetet ofta sammanblandas på policynivå, vilket får återverkningar i såväl forskning som prevention. En viktig nyckel till hur man ska kunna utveckla arbetet med säkerhet och prevention ligger i behovet av ytterligare kunskapsutveckling vad gäller alltifrån metoder, fältstudier till policypraktiker. Utöver att redogöra för utvecklingen i Sverige, argumenteras också för behovet av ett mer skeptiskt, reflexivt och kritiskt förhållningssätt till alla former av förenklade kategoriseringar av unga, som kan riskera att stigmatisera individer och grupperingar. Genom att utgå från ett kritiskt och reflexivt socialpedagogiskt perspektiv blir det möjligt att bidra till förståelse och till en analys av sociala sammanhang, risker och negativa spiraler. Ambitionen att försöka predicera vilka individer som eventuellt kommer att begå terrorbrott utgör en återvändsgränd. Däremot finns det möjligheter att identifiera riskmiljöer, subkulturella grupperingar som odlar extrema åsikter och att sedan på olika sätt närma sig dessa grupperingar för att kunna utveckla ett effektivt socialpedagogiskt arbete och skapa förutsättningar för positiva trajektorier.

Abstract [en]

How best to support working carers is being paid increased attention across Europe and internationally. This article examines a largely unexplored area within the empirical literature, namely, information and communication technology-mediated support for working carers of older people. Using an integrative review methodology to draw on both quantitative and qualitative data, 14 studies were identified. Themes included making work–life balance easier, reducing the burden of caregiving and promoting well-being. Factors to consider in the design, implementation and evaluation of innovative support solutions for working carers are put forward. However, a lack of longitudinal studies and biased samples warrants further investigation.

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the annual societal cost of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) in Sweden, focusing on the secondary disabilities thought feasible to limit via early interventions.

METHODS: Prevalence-based cost-of-illness analysis of FAS in Sweden for 2014. Direct costs (societal support, special education, psychiatric disorders and alcohol/drug abuse) and indirect costs (reduced working capacity and informal caring), were included. The calculations were based on published Swedish studies, including a register-based follow-up study of adults with FAS, reports and databases, and experts.

RESULTS: The annual total societal cost of FAS was estimated at €76,000 per child (0-17 years) and €110,000 per adult (18-74 years), corresponding to €1.6 billion per year in the Swedish population using a prevalence of FAS of 0.2 %. The annual additional cost of FAS (difference between the FAS group and a comparison group) was estimated at €1.4 billion using a prevalence of 0.2 %. The major cost driver was the cost of societal support.

CONCLUSIONS: The cost burden of FAS on the society is extensive, but likely to be underestimated. A reduction in the societal costs of FAS, both preventive and targeted interventions to children with FAS, should be prioritized. That is, the cost of early interventions such as placement in family homes or other forms of housing, and special education, represent unavoidable costs. However, these types of interventions are highly relevant to improve the individual's quality of life and future prospects, and also, within a long-term perspective, to limit the societal costs and personal suffering.

Abstract [en]

Policy makers in Sweden and other European Member States pay increasing attention as to how best support working carers; carers juggling providing unpaid family care for older family members while performing paid work. Exploring perceived benefits and challenges with web-based information and communication technologies as a means of supporting working carers' in their caregiving role, this paper draws on findings from a qualitative study. The study aimed to describe working carers' experiences of having access to the web-based family care support network 'A good place' (AGP) provided by the municipality to support those caring for an older family member. Content analysis of interviews with nine working carers revealed three themes: A support hub, connections to peers, personnel and knowledge; Experiencing ICT support as relevant in changing life circumstances; and Upholding one's personal firewall. Findings indicate that the web-based family care support network AGP is an accessible, complementary means of support. Utilising support while balancing caregiving, work obligations and responsibilities was made easier with access to AGP; enabling working carers to access information, psychosocial support and learning opportunities. In particular, it provided channels for carers to share experiences with others, to be informed, and to gain insights into medical and care issues. This reinforced working carers' sense of competence, helping them meet caregiving demands and see positive aspects in their situation. Carers' low levels of digital skills and anxieties about using computer-based support were barriers to utilising web-based support and could lead to deprioritising of this support. However, to help carers overcome these barriers and to better match web-based support to working carers' preferences and situations, web-based support must be introduced in a timely manner and must more accurately meet each working carer's unique caregiving needs.

Abstract [sv]

Nationellt kompetenscentrum anhöriga, Nka, har tagit fram rapporten "Kvalitet i äldreomsorg ur ett anhörigperspektiv" på uppdrag från Socialdepartementet. Rapporten ingår i den nationella kvalitetsplanen för äldreomsorgen.I rapporten framgår det tydligt att trygghet är själva förutsättningen för att kunna skapa bästa och mesta möjliga välbefinnande för anhöriga och äldre närstående. Andra viktiga byggstenar är tillhörighet, delaktighet och betydelsefullhet. Det finns också ett behov av kompetensutveckling – både i verksamheterna och hos de anhöriga. I kunskapssammanställningen framgår också att anhöriga och äldre närstående tenderar att bemötas och behandlas olika beroende på den utbildning, arbete och social position personen har. Detsamma gäller kön, etnisk tillhörighet, trosuppfattning, funktionsnedsättning, sexuell läggning och ålder. Rapporten tar upp en rad åtgärder för att utveckla kvaliteten i vården och omsorgen för äldre ur ett anhörigperspektiv.
