Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of the study was to describe pregnant women's expectations of being able to access their electronic health records from antenatal care. Methods: Nine pregnant women passing 25 full gestational weeks were interviewed individually. Collected data were analysed with an inductive approach using content analysis. The study was performed in antenatal care units in southern Sweden. Results: The following five categories emerged from the analysis: Being able to achieve increased participation, being able to have more control, being more knowledgeable about the pregnancy, identification of possible risks, and perceptions of one's own well-being can predict usage. The five categories led to one main category: 'Shift in power from passive passenger to participating co-pilot'. Conclusion: The pregnant women expected that having access to electronic health records would give them more control, make them more knowledgeable and increase their participation. Access to electronic health records may empower pregnant women and contribute to a more person-centred approach. This could provide greater knowledge for the woman and her partner about her health, thus, allowing them to make evidence-based choices in relation to the newborn baby and the woman's health.

Abstract [en]

Background: Smoking among teenagers and young people is still common and about every third young smoker states that they want to quit smoking. There are no obvious evidence-based methods for tobacco cessation for young people, and therefore, the same methods are used for young people as well as adults. The aim was to study young people's views about what support they would like for quit smoking, with the intention of developing a model for tobacco cessation for young people through interviews with the target groups.

Methods: A qualitative study using a descriptive and exploratory design was conducted. Young smokers 16 - 29 years old (n=25) were interviewed in five focus groups in southern Sweden. Data were analyzed by content analysis.

Results: The results illuminate young people's suggestions to develop a model for tobacco cessation. Four main categories emerged; Existing support rejected - existing apps, support- by SMS, and self-help brochures did not appeal to young people. Agreement between friends - To sign an agreement between two friends which included a fee on relapse. Adult support - To organize the model with duo groups and give adapted support. Celebrate and competition - Lift the positive with the freedom of smoke and create the opportunity to win simple prizes to celebrate the achieved interim goals.

Conclusions: The young people suggested that the model for tobacco cessation would contain adult support and involves an agreement between friends and has elements of celebration and competition. The challenge will be to implement this model into environments where young people live.

Abstract [en]

Objective

The aim of this study was to identify how fathers-to-be used the Internet as a source of information during their partners' pregnancy and how it affected them.

Design and setting

A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted. Data were collected through a questionnaire and distributed at a maternity clinic in south of Sweden. The data were analysed descriptively.

Participants

Ninety-two Swedish fathers participated in the study, and the response rate was 98.9%.

Findings

Of all the fathers-to-be, 76% sought pregnancy-related information on the Internet. One sought information on a daily basis, 40.6% every week and 58% every month or more rarely. The fathers-to-be who participated at all/most visits at antenatal care searched for information on the Internet more often than those who only attended few/no visits (p = 0.012). A total of 33.4% of fathers-to-be had been recommended a web page by the midwife at the antenatal care. The main reason for using the Internet was to find information about pregnancy related subjects and read about people in similar situations. More than half of the fathers-to-be (61.8%) had at some point been worried by something they read online. These concerns were commonly addressed by asking the midwife at their next appointment (33.9%). Almost 26% of the fathers-to-be chose not to take any action at all to address their concerns.

Conclusion

The majority of all fathers-to-be searched for information on the Internet, and more than half of the fathers were, at some point, worried about the information they read on the Internet. One way to address questions and concerns could be for the fathers-to-be to ask and discuss with the midwives what they read online so that midwives can recommend appropriate and credible websites. To achieve this, there must be opportunities for midwives to gain knowledge on how best to use the Internet as a tool.

Abstract [en]

Background

In Sweden, simulation- and skills training are implemented in midwifery education in order to prepare students for clinical practice. Research regarding the use of both low to high levels of fidelity in simulation in midwifery programme is limited.

Aim

The aim of this study was to explore midwifery students' experiences of simulation- and skills training.

Methods

Midwifery students (n = 61), at advanced level, were interviewed in 13 group interviews from 2011 to 2105. A semi-structured interview guide was used, and data were analysed by content analysis.

Results

The results are presented in four main categories: develops hands on skills and communication, power of collaborative learning, highly valued learning environment and facilitates clinical practice. The majority of students felt that the simulation- and skills training were necessary to become familiar with hands on skills. Having repetitive practices in a safe and secure environment was viewed as important, and students highly valued that mistakes could be made without fear of comprising patient safety. Student's collaboration, reflections and critical thinking increased learning ability. Simulation- and skills training created links between theory and practice, and the lecturer had an important role in providing instructions and feedback. Students felt prepared and confident before their clinical practice, and simulation- and skills training increased safety for all involved, resulting in students being more confident, as patients in clinical practice became less exposed. Furthermore, mentors were satisfied with students' basic skills.

Conclusion

Simulation- and skills training support the development of midwifery skills. It creates links between theory and practice, which facilitates students' learning ability. Training needs to include reflections and critical thinking in order to develop their learning. The lecturer has an important role in encouraging time for reflections and creating safe environment during the skills and simulation training.

Abstract [en]

Objective

The Internet plays a major role for pregnant women in seeking knowledge and for getting in touch with like-minded women. The information is available at all hours and can be accessed anywhere. The information provides the women with a sense of control and confidence but the large amount of information available can also be overwhelming. The aim of this study was to identify how women use the Internet as a source of information during their pregnancy and how it affects them.

Design and setting

A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted.Data were collected through a questionnaire at antenatal clinics in the southern Sweden. The data were analyzed descriptively

Participants

A total of 193 Swedish women, pregnant at least 34 weeks, participated in the study. The response rate was 94%.

Findings

Almost all (95%) of the women in the study used the Internet as a source of information. The main reason was to find information and read about people in the same situation. Reading pregnancy-related information on the Internet was seen as positive. However, a majority of the woman experienced feelings of worry due to something they read online. These feelings were most commonly coped with by talking to a partner, relatives, and friends or by asking the midwife at their next appointment. Eleven per cent of the women contacted the general healthcare services because of their feelings of worry.

Conclusion

Almost all women in this study searched the Internet to find pregnancy-related information, despite being satisfied with the information they received from the ANC. Using the Internet was seen as complementary to the information from professionals. It also caused feelings of worry, which could lead to the woman contacting healthcare services for support. ANC could help to reduce these feelings for some women by informing about the advantages and disadvantages with online information and recommending suitable web pages.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ett tidigt stöd till föräldrar kan främja barns hälsa och utveckling samt hjälpa föräldrarna att möta det väntade och nyfödda barnet. Därför anordnas bl.a. föräldragrupper för föräldrar som väntar barn. För att garantera att föräldragruppernas utvecklas i takt med de riktlinjer som finns och efter föräldrarnas behov behövs ständiga utvärderingar.

Syfte: Syfte med studien var att göra en utvärdering av föräldragrupperna inom mödrahälsovården i norra Kalmar län bland förstagångsföräldrar.

Metod: Retrospektiv tvärsnittstudie med kvantitativt ansats. Data samlades in genom ett frågeformulär med strukturerade frågor och resultatet framställdes med hjälp av beskrivande statistik.

Resultat: Tvåhundrafemtiotvå föräldrar deltog i studien. Av dessa hade 135 föräldrar deltagit i alla träffar. Resultatet visar på att föräldrarna tyckte att grupperna var meningsfulla (84,5 %) och att de uppfyllde deras behov (85,9 %). Föräldragrupperna ansågs vara en bra förlossningsförberedelse (85,1 %) och kunde stärka dem i föräldraskapet (75,5 %). Främst mödrar skapade kontakter och gemenskap med andra föräldrar. Det ämne som ej tagits upp i tillräcklig grad var parrelationen. Föräldrarna önskade att tidpunkten för träffarna skulle anpassas mer efter deras behov.

Slutsats: Föräldrar upplevde de genomförda föräldragrupperna positivt.  De förbättringar som angavs var att tidpunkten kunde anpassa mer efter föräldrarnas behov samt att parrelationen kunde diskuteras mera.
