    Estrogenic personal care products in a greywater reuse system2007In: Water Science and Technology, ISSN 0273-1223, E-ISSN 1996-9732, Vol. 56, no 12, p. 45-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The occurrence and fate of parabens in a greywater system was assessed. The potential for removal of residual paraben concentrations in effluent greywater with chlorine dioxide was also investigated. The influent to the greywater plant was characterised by considerable variation, with concentrations from below the detection limit to 40 μg/L and the five commonly used parabens in consumer products were frequently detected. After the biological treatment only two paraben were detected with concentration from 65–120 ng/L. Chlorine dioxide treatment of the biologically treated effluent with dosages down to 0.75 mg/L resulted in more than 97% reduction of all parabens. Formation of the by-product chloroform was insignificant from the chlorine dioxide treatment.

    A new sports manager does not make a better team.2011In: International journal of sports science & coaching, ISSN 1747-9541, E-ISSN 2048-397X, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 167-178Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article surveys the literature on the impact of managerial successions on team performance in professional sports and assesses ten studies on the effect of managerial succession. They cover 80 years (1920-2000) with data from four different sports and two countries. From these studies, three lessons emerge when teams perform poorly: (i) a change of coach or manager during the season is not helpful; (ii) if succession is deemed necessary, change the manager between seasons; and (iii) if the choice is between a manager from inside the organization and one from the outside, choose the former. What is critical is that whichever manager is replaced or for whatever reason, the performance of the team will most likely not improve for that reason alone. In short, a new manager does not make a better team.

    An organization called Harry2008In: Journal of Organizational Change Management, ISSN 0953-4814, E-ISSN 1758-7816, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 174-187Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics to gods, plants, animals or inanimate objects (the wind, rocks, etc.). This paper sets out to disprove the association of anthropomorphic characteristics with individual organizations.

    Design/methodology/approach – This paper discusses anthropomorphism in organization theory because many scholars argue that organizations are human or like human beings. Some examples of “An organization called Harry” in organization literature are presented.

    Findings – Three causes of anthropomorphism can be traced. The negative, rather than any positive, consequences of anthropomorphism in organization literature are discussed.

    Originality/value – A new agenda for organizational studies is suggested where anthropomorphism is avoided together with the fallacy of the human metaphor. Anthropomorphism creates confusion rather than advancing the field of organization theory.

    Leadership research: Where irrelevance prevails2013In: Dynamic relationships management journal, ISSN 2232-5867, E-ISSN 2350-367X, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 3-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Is contemporary managerial leadership research relevant and helpful to managers? Arguably, managers’ main task and prime concern is to contribute to the attainment of organisational goals, i.e., to enhance organizational effectiveness. On the basis of this premise of relevance, a survey of 105 research articles published in two international journals year 2011 reveals that researchers did not address this question. In these articles the term ‘effectiveness’ occurred about one time for every 1000 words. In the 105 articles effectiveness was seldom defined and never measured. If managers‘ prime concern is to contribute to organizational effectiveness, then there is no surprise that several scholars have found that managers regard leadership research irrelevant and useless.

    Public Managers: Their behavior, their change potential and the behavior of women and men in public organizations.2012In: Uprava / Administration, ISSN 1581-7555, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 25-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This survey article addresses three questions based on the assumption that significant differences exist between public and private organizations. If this assumption is correct managerial and leadership behavior will differ between public and private managers. Additionally, the propensity to change will also differ between public and private managers. Since a number of studies indicate that managers’ leadership behavior in public organizations differ from that of private managers, difference and similarities in leadership behavior between women and men in public organizations are examined. Three studies are presented here which show that public and private managers have different behavioral patterns of leadership. However, public managers turn out to be more change-oriented than business managers. In the public organizations investigated no differences in leadership behavior between women and men were found.

    Public vs. private managers.: How public and private managers differ in leadership behavior.2010In: PAR. Public Administration Review, ISSN 0033-3352, E-ISSN 1540-6210, Vol. 70, no 1, p. 131-141Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to find out whether there are behavioral differences between public and private sector managers. Two groups of public managers (managers of social insurance agencies and public school principals) and a group of private managers (two samples) are investigated. Behavioral dimensions are investigated including leadership style (task, relationship, and change orientation), decision-making style (the functions of sensing, intuition, thinking, and feeling), and motivation profile (achievement, affiliation, and power motivation). An analysis of data from 459 managers in four organizations in Sweden reveal significant differences in behavior between public and private managers. However, no significant differences in leadership behavior are discovered among public managers. Possible explanations for such differences and similarities are explored.

    Reintroducing the Owner: On Corporate Governance, Goals, Organisation and Leadership Theories2012In: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 8TH EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON MANAGEMENT LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE / [ed] Politis, J, NR READING: Academic Conferences Limited , 2012, p. 1-7Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article illustrates that contemporary literature on organisation and leadership attributes little attention to the topic of corporate governance. Textbooks on organisation and leadership theory yield no or few listings of corporate governance and owner (ownership). This paper does not deal with corporate governance and the agency theory as such, but rather the way in which these theories are linked to organisation and leadership theory. Additionally, several incidents from business and private organisations have shown the problems and dramatic consequences of inadequate corporate governance, which in itself call for more research on this topic. The main reason why corporate governance has been marginalised in the literature appears to be the prevalence of the open system theory, in which ownership and organisational goals are not essential theoretical concepts. According to this theory the owners are but one of many stakeholders. Some scholars even claim that organisations do not have any owners. Moreover, the organisational goals are not the goals of the owners, but the goals of the stakeholders or goals of the managers. In order to promote corporate governance a sound theoretical foundation is called for. The rationalistic organisation theory constitutes a sound theoretical foundation for the principal agency theory and thus for the study of corporate governance. In the rationalistic theory the owners and their goals are given as the reason for the establishment of an organisation. The chief execute officer is hired to run the organisation on behalf of the owners in order to achieve organisational goals as decided by the owners. The principal and agency theory is based on the rationalistic organisation theory in which owners play a central role in the formulation of goals and establishing as well as controlling the organisation and its managers. Both corporate governance and agency theory need to regain a dominant place in organisation theory textbooks and in organisation, management, and leadership research. In present-day literature on organisation, management and leadership theories - based on the open system theory - the owner has disappeared. The time has come to reinstate the owner.

    Seven pitfalls in organisation literature2012In: Dynamic relationships management journal, ISSN 2232-5867, E-ISSN 2350-367X, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 48-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Current organisation literature is rife with several incorrect and confusing assertions which continually create problems for students and researchers alike. Seven of these unfortunate beliefs are presented here and provocatively called ‘pitfalls’. The aim of this article is to draw attention to some of these theoretically incorrect assertions and how they can be avoided in scholarly work. The implications for managers are also presented.

    When the servant-leader comes knocking …2009In: Leadership & Organization Development Journal, ISSN 0143-7739, E-ISSN 1472-5347, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 4-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to scrutinise the concept of servant leadership from a business administration (management) point-of-view.

    Design/methodology/approach – A review of scholarly works on servant-leadership is presented.

    Findings – A generally accepted definition of servant-leadership is not available. There are no generally accepted instruments for measuring servant-leadership. It is unclear whether some leaders are servant-leaders while others are not, and whether leaders can be servant-leaders to different degrees. The positive effects of servant-leadership on organisational outcomes, a consideration highly relevant to management, have not been empirically established. Some studies have shown negative effects of servant-leadership on organisational effectiveness.

    Research limitations/implications – This literature review contains no empirical data.

    Practical implications – The argument that servant-leaders should be in charge of private companies and public organisations appears to be contrary to theoretical and empirical considerations. Servant-leaders, whose concerns are primarily focused on subordinates rather than customers (or citizens), are hardly able to attain organisational goals.

    Originality/value – The paper offers critical comments on the conceptual and empirically usefulness of servant-leadership when applied to business enterprises and public agencies.

    Your favourite manager is an organisational disaster.2009In: European Business Review, ISSN 0955-534X, E-ISSN 1758-7107, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 5-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – When subordinates are asked what kind of manager they prefer, the answers are virtually the same. Subordinates have a different focus than managers, as the latter focus on organisational goal attainment. The purpose of this paper is to pinpoint the consequences of the subordinates' leadership preferences for organisational performance.

    Design/methodology/approach – This paper draws conclusions based on previous research and empirical data collected to illustrate the likely outcome of subordinates having the managers they prefer.

    Findings – Subordinates favour the type of manager who has a relationship oriented style of leadership, and who is predominantly motivated by affiliation. Additionally, subordinates appear to prefer a servant leader to be their boss. Research has shown that relationship oriented and affiliation motivated managers, as well as servant leaders are detrimental to organisational effectiveness.

    Research limitations/implications – The data refer only to Swedish samples of private and public managers regarding leadership styles and motivation profiles. Data have not yet been published on the occurrence of popular managers and the prevalence of servant leaders.

    Practical implications – Both managers and subordinates need to acknowledge the conflicting issues in management. The manager that the subordinates want is precisely what they should not get.

    Originality/value – This paper supplies theoretical as well as empirical arguments needed to warn organisations against having managers whose behaviour is preferred by subordinates, but also impedes organisational effectiveness.

    At the end of the road?: On differences between women and men in leadership behavior2011In: Leadership & Organization Development Journal, ISSN 0143-7739, E-ISSN 1472-5347, Vol. 32, no 5, p. 328-341Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This study aims to explore behavioural differences between women and men in managerial positions and suggest explanations for differences and similarities.

    Design/methodology/approach – In order to eliminate any effects of organizational differences on leadership behaviour, this study had public managers responding to questionnaires that measured their leadership style, decision-making style, and motivation profile.

    Findings – Statistical analyses of data from three groups of Swedish public managers (n=385) revealed virtually no significant differences in behaviour between female and male managers. Regardless of whether there is a female or male majority of employees or a female or male majority of managers, no effect on leadership behaviour occurs.

    Originality/value – A number of studies indicate that managers' behaviour is different in different types of organizations. This study suggests, therefore, that, independent of gender, organizational and demographic characteristics modify leadership behaviours, thus explaining similarities in leadership behaviour.

    Why European subordinates trust their managers2012In: Organizacija, ISSN 1318-5454, E-ISSN 1581-1832, Vol. 45, no 6, p. 300-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the problem of why subordinates trust their managers based on the responses from 108 subordinatesof seven Slovenian managers and from 138 subordinates of eight Swedish managers. The subordinates of these managersresponded to a 20-item instrument tested for reliability and validity. In both samples the managers enjoyed different degreesof trust. The level of trust vested in Slovenian managers was higher than in Swedish ones. The kinds of managers’ actions thatenhanced trust were similar amongst Swedish and Slovenian subordinates. Different socio-cultural contexts may theoreticallyexplain why some other kinds of actions had contrasting effects between the samples. On the whole, the actions of managersexplain trust in both countries. Subordinates’ trust in managers declines with the increasing hierarchical distance in bothnational samples. Managers need to show in action that they trust their subordinates, promote their interests, demonstrateappreciation of their subordinates, and solve problems.

    Characteristic Sizes of Life in the Oceans, from Bacteria to Whales2016In: Annual Review of Marine Science, ISSN 1941-1405, E-ISSN 1941-0611, Vol. 8, p. 217-241Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The size of an individual organism is a key trait to characterize its physiology and feeding ecology. Size-based scaling laws may have a limited size range of validity or undergo a transition from one scaling exponent to another at some characteristic size. We collate and review data on size-based scaling laws for resource acquisition, mobility, sensory range, and progeny size for all pelagic marine life, from bacteria to whales. Further, we review and develop simple theoretical arguments for observed scaling laws and the characteristic sizes of a change or breakdown of power laws. We divide life in the ocean into seven major realms based on trophic strategy, physiology, and life history strategy. Such a categorization represents a move away from a taxonomically oriented description toward a trait-based description of life in the oceans. Finally, we discuss life forms that transgress the simple size-based rules and identify unanswered questions.

    "Det blir mycket konflikter": En kvalitativ studie om hur en begränsad skolgårdsyta inverkar på barns lek.2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att genom intervjuer med fritidslärare få förståelse för och ökad kunskap om hur de anser att en skolgård med begränsad yta inverkar på barns lek.

    Vi har använt oss av följande frågeställningar: Hur uppfattar fritidslärarna sin skolgård? Hur uppfattar fritidslärarna skolgårdens lekmöjligheter? På vilket sätt anser fritidslärarna att den begränsade skolgårdsytan inverkar på leken?                    

    Forskningen visar att en variationsrik miljö bidrar till mer aktiva lekar. Många studier visar även att skapande av egna platser är en viktig del i utformningen av barns lek. Den naturliga miljön i form av buskar och träd inbjuder till mer varierande lek medan asfaltsytorna erbjuder pulshöjande och tävlingsinriktade lekar.

    I studien används en kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem fritidslärare. För att analysera vårt resultat har vi använt oss av affordanceteorin, ramfaktorteorin, Grahns (1997) perspektiv på den fysiska miljön samt sju stycken begrepp från Grahn (2003) som vi använder som diskussionsnycklar. Studiens resultat visar att samtliga fritidslärare anser att det blir mer konflikter när skolgårdsytan är begränsad och för liten i förhållande till de rekommendationer som finns. Det visade sig även att eleverna har sämre möjligheter till platsskapande då ytan inte räcker till åt alla elever.

    Utvärdering av ett nyutvecklat samverkansbjälklag och dess utvecklingspotential2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens byggnader ställs allt högre krav på stora rum och öppna ytor vilket ger efterfrågan på ökad spännvidd hos bjälklagen. Detta är svårt att klara av med traditionella träbjälklag. För att ändå få ett lätt bjälklag undersöks möjligheten att kunna fördela ut bjälklagets belastning i två riktningar. Bjälklaget ska alltså vara fyrsidigt upplagt. För att lösa detta har en idé uppkommit som går ut på ett samverkansbjälklag mellan trä och plåt. Detta bjälklag ska i bärriktning 1 bära genom fackverkan medan det i bärriktning 2 ska bära genom balkverkan. För att ett fyrsidigt upplagt bjälklag ska fungera krävs att sambandet mellan kraft och deformation är likvärdigt i båda riktningarna.

    Examensarbetets uppgift har varit att tillverka provkroppar för att undersöka sambandet mellan kraft och deformation i både bärriktning 1 och bärriktning 2. Provning utförs för att se om bjälklaget har förutsättningar att kunna användas i praktiken.

    Efter provning av bjälklagsprovkropparna konstaterades att det finns möjligheter att gå vidare med produkten och fortsätta utvecklingsarbetet. För de provkroppar som provades i bärriktning 1 och 2 var sambandet mellan kraft och deformation nära identisk upp till 7,5 kN då mittnedböjningen var ca 10 mm.

    An alternative to the flutter derivatives2016In: BBAA VIII, 8th International Colloquium on Bluff Body Aerodynamics and Applications, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, June 7-11, 2016: colloquium proceedings, Boston: Northeastern University, College of Engineering , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new simplified framework to study flutter and assess the full scale flutter wind speed is suggested. The flutter instability problem is reduced from a problem involving 8 flutter derivatives to only 4 coefficients. With this method it is possible to estimate the self-excited forces with increased precision by using stability diagrams. Furthermore, the physical transparency of the aerodynamic damping and stiffness terms is increased because the development in vertical and torsional damping and stiffness is analysed instead of flutter derivatives.

    Aerodynamic stability of long span suspension bridges with low torsional natural frequencies2016In: Engineering structures, ISSN 0141-0296, E-ISSN 1873-7323, Vol. 120, p. 82-91Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Classical flutter of suspended bridge decks can be avoided if the torsional frequencies are lower than the vertical. Wind tunnel tests of single boxes and twin box section models with torsional natural frequencies above and below the vertical frequency has been conducted. Flutter was avoided in all tests where the torsional frequency was lower than the vertical. But too low torsional stiffness caused large static displacements of the girder at medium–high wind speeds and steady state oscillations driven by a combination of torsional divergence and stalling behavior at the critical wind seed. In order to design aerodynamically stable suspension bridges with low torsional natural frequencies it is suggested to increase the mass moment of inertia and provide adequate torsional stiffness by the main cables spacing.

    CO2-emissions from the transport of China’s exported goods.2010In: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, Vol. 38, no 10, p. 5790-5798Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emissions of greenhouse gases in many European countries are declining, and the European Union (EU) believes it is on track in achieving emission reductions as agreed upon in the Kyoto Agreement and the EU's more ambitious post-Kyoto climate policy. However, a number of recent publications indicate that emission reductions may also have been achieved because production has been shifted to other countries, and in particular China. If a consumption perspective is applied, emissions in industrialized countries are substantially higher, and may not have declined at all. Significantly, emissions from transports are omitted in consumption-based calculations. As all trade involves transport, mostly by cargo ship, but also by air, transports add considerably to overall emissions growth incurred in production shifts. Consequently, this article studies the role of transports in creating emissions of CO2, based on the example of exports from China. Results are discussed with regard to their implications for global emission reductions and post-Kyoto negotiations.

    Sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av samarbetet mellan slutenvård och kommunal sjukvård kring den äldre patienten.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    Background: The frail and/or sick elderly are a growing group of patients who are often caught in between healthcare instances when misunderstandings occur in transition between inpatient and municipal healthcare providers. Previous research has shown that, among other things, lack of information between instances are one of the most common causes of preventable harm. Improved cooperation between these two primary health facilities work is of paramount importance for patient safety.

    Aim: The aim of the study was to examine nurses experiences of cooperation between inpatient care and municipal healthcare concerning geriatric patients.

    Method: A qualitative method was chosen to investigate the nurses' experience of cooperation between inpatient care and municipal healthcare. A total of 27 nurses from both municipal and inpatient answered an electronic questionnaire via e-mail. Their answers were analyzed using qualitative content analysis.

    Results: Nurses from both inpatient care and municipal healthcare believes that the cooperation is in need of improvement in order to increase patient safety. Shortcomings occur in cooperation, especially regarding medicinal management, communication and information transfer. They are also under the impression that an increased understanding of each other's work situations are crucial. Suggestions of improvement are increased education within the common communicational tool and also visits to each other’s workplaces to increase the understanding of the different work situations.

    Conclusion: An increased and improved cooperation between municipal healthcare and inpatient care can improve patient safety if medicinal management and transference is secured, better care plans are set up with and for the patient, and also that information transfer is conducted properly. These things will enable a good cooperation and transition of caregiver will not be as noticeable to the patient. The existing tool for communication, if used to its full extent, is a great support in doing this.

    Anhörigas upplevelser av att leva med en person med demenssjukdom2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I Sverige drabbas varje år ca 150 000 personer av någon form av demenssjukdom. Demenssjukdom innebär vanligen minnesstörningar och personlighetsförändringar för dem som drabbas. Ur ett systemteoretiskt perspektiv påverkas även anhöriga när någon insjuknar i sjukdom och de anhöriga till personer med demenssjukdom kan få omorganisera hela sin vardag för att upprätthålla den tillvaro de lever i. Syftet var att beskriva anhörigas upplevda erfarenheter kring att leva med en person med demenssjukdom. Metoden som användes var systematisk litteraturstudie. Efter genomförd sökning i fem databaser och kvalitetsgranskning inkluderades nio vetenskapliga artiklar till vår studie. Analysen resulterade i två teman: Lust med kategorierna: personlig utveckling, ändrad livsfilosofi, förbättrade och starkare relationer, strategier för hantering av påfrestning och motiverande faktorer; och Lidande med kategorierna: känslomässig påfrestning, börda/belastning, och depression/ångest. I vårt resultat framkom att vårdandet upplevdes som lättare då motivationen var kärlek till personen med demenssjukdom. De anhöriga fann den personliga utvecklingen givande och då kunskap kring demenssjukdomen fanns, upplevdes mindre börda. Då vårdandet upplevdes som mödosamt förekom depressiva symtom och även stress. Det framkom att anhöriga till person med demenssjukdom sällan upplevde antingen lust eller lidande, utan upplevelserna växlade, ena dagen lustfyllt, nästa dag lidelsefyllt.

    Titel:                                                        Konkurrenskraft genom rätt strategier. En kvalitativ studie om småföretagens konkurrensstrategier inom den svenska trycksaksbranschen.

     

    Bakgrund:                                                Varje företag har idag konkurrensstrategier vare sig de är medvetna eller omedvetna. Vikten av att ha en stark konkurrenskraft är stor inom en sådan bransch som trycksaksbranschen.

     

    Författare:                                               Peter Andersen och Dragan Vergic

     

    Handledare:                                             Dr. Magnus Willesson

     

    Syfte:                                                       Syftet med studien är ta reda på vilka konkurrensstrategier som de undersökta företagen använder sig av samt om de med hjälp av dessa strategier har lyckats upprätthålla en uthållig konkurrensfördel.

     

    Avgränsningar:                                        Vi avgränsar oss till att undersöka tre företag samt att vi enbart fokuserar oss på ämnen runt konkurrensstrategier.

     

    Metod:                                                     Vår studie har utgått ifrån en abduktiv ansats. Vidare har vi använt oss av en kvalitativ metod och upplysningar har insamlats genom intervjuer.

     

    Slutsatser:                                               Alla företag har tydliga strategier för vad de gör även om dessa är outtalade. De tydligaste strategierna hos alla tre företagen är: hög kundservice, hög kvalitet på produkterna samt hög kompetens inom företaget. Med hjälp av dessa strategier har våra fallföretag lyckats nå hållbara konkurrensfördelar inom branschen.

     

    Förslag till fortsatt forskning:                Ett förslag till vidare forskning är att göra en liknande undersökning på de större företagen inom tryckeribranschen för att få reda på vilken skillnad det är på konkurrensstrategierna mellan de små företagen och de stora inom trycksaksbranschen i Sverige.

    Physical Activity on Prescription with Counsellor Support: A 4-Year Registry-Based Study in Routine Health Care in Sweden2018In: Healthcare, E-ISSN 2227-9032, Vol. 6, no 2, article id 34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Public health gains from physical activity on prescription (PAP) depend on uptake in routine care. We performed an evaluation of the implementation, in a Swedish county council, of counsellors who give personalized support to PAP recipients aimed at facilitating PAP delivery. The aim was to compare characteristics between PAP recipients and the health care population as well as between PAP recipients who used and did not use counsellor support. We also investigated professional belonging and health care setting of health care professionals who prescribed PAP. Methods: All patients' >= 18 years who received PAP during 2009-2012 in primary and secondary care in the County Council of Kronoberg were included (n = 4879). Data were retrieved from electronic medical records. Main outcome measures were patient and professional characteristics. Results: A third of the PAP recipients had diseases in >= 5 diagnostic groups and more than half had >= 11 office visits the year before receiving PAP. Counsellor support was used by one-third and PAP recipients who used counsellor support had more multiple diagnoses and office visits compared with non-users. Physicians issued 44% of prescriptions and primary care was the predominant setting. The amount of PAP did not change over time, but the proportion of physicians' prescriptions decreased while the proportion of nurses' prescriptions increased. Conclusions: PAP recipients had high morbidity and were frequent health care attenders, indicating that PAP was predominantly used for secondary or tertiary prevention. PAP rates did not increase as intended after the implementation of counsellor support.

    Patients' experiences of physical activity on prescription with access to counsellors in routine care: a qualitative study in Sweden2019In: BMC Public Health, ISSN 1471-2458, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 19, article id 210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BackgroundPhysical activity on prescription (PAP) has been implemented in several countries, including Sweden, to support patients who might benefit from increased physical activity. This study explores the experiences of recipients of PAP in routine health care in Sweden that offers the recipients support from physical activity counsellors. The aim was to explore influences on engagement in physical activity by PAP recipients' from a long-term perspective.MethodsWe conducted individual semi-structured interviews using a topic guide with a purposively selected sample of 13 adult PAP recipients 1.5 to 2.5years after PAP. Interviews were recorded, transcribed verbatim and analysed through inductive and deductive content analysis. The questions were informed by Capability-Opportunity-Motivation-Behaviour (COM-B), which was also used as a framework to analyse the data by means of categorizing the factors (influences on the behaviour).ResultsTen factors (i.e. sub-categories) that influenced the participants' engagement in physical activity were identified. PAP recipients' capability to engage in physical activity was associated with adapting the PAP to the individual's physical capacity and taking into account the individual's previous experiences of physical activity. PAP recipients' opportunity to engage in physical activity was related to receiving a prescription, receiving professional counselling and follow-up from a physical activity counsellor, collaboration between prescriber and counsellor, having access to appropriate activities, having a balanced life situation and having support from someone who encouraged continued physical activity. PAP recipients' motivation to engage in physical activity was associated with the desire to improve his or her health condition and finding activities that encouraged continuation.ConclusionsPAP recipients' engagement in physical activity was influenced by their capability, opportunity and motivation to undertake this behaviour. Numerous extraneous factors influence capability and motivation. Physical activity counsellors were found to be important for sustained activity because they use an individual approach to counselling and flexible follow-up adapted to each individual's need of support.

    Next of kin's feelings of guilt and shame in end-of-life care2007In: Contemporary Nurse: health care across the lifespan, ISSN 1037-6178, E-ISSN 1839-3535, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 61-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study the aim was to explore and describe next of kin’s feelings of guilt and shame in end-of-life care via secondary analysis of 47 qualitative interviews. In the analysis categories and subcategories emerged which conveyed how the next of kin experienced guilt; not having done or talked enough, being absent at important events or making errors of judgement. Categories conveying feelings of shame were situations where the next of kin felt inferior, was ashamed on behalf of the dying person and when family conflicts became apparent. Receiving help and support in order to make the remaining period as pleasant as possible can facilitate the next of kin’s sense of having fulfilled their duties and responsibilities and therein reduce feelings of guilt and shame. It is apparent that these feelings should be taken into account and the next of kin should receive support to increase their well-being during the remaining time in end-of-life care and the grieving period.

    En produkthistoria!: AB Hägglund & Söner 1922-19811994Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kring en kärna av kompetens inom mekanisk verkstadsindustri har det ständigt tillverkats nya produkter vid AB Hägglund & Söner med säte i Örnsköldsvik. Möbler, busskarosserier, flygplan, gruvlok, elektriska motorer, svetsmaskiner, fartygskranar och hydrauliska motorer är bara några exempel. Utvecklingen av nya produkter har skett i nära samarbete med kunder med vilka man haft långvariga affärsutbyten. Inom företaget har intresset och entusiasmen för nya produkter och konstruktioner varit en ständig drivkraft till ökad kunskap. Redan tidigt utvecklades en kultur och tradition av att gärna och med stor arbetsinsats ge sig in på svåra men utmanande och spännande projekt kring nya produkter.

    I denna empiriska del behandlas företagets omvandling under en period av sextio år. Med utgångspunkt från produkterna söker författaren beskriva förändring såväl i intern resursomvandling som externt i interaktion med kunder och leverantörer. Boken utgör den empiriska delen av "Ett industriföretags omvandling".

    Ett industriföretags omvandling: en studie av Hägglunds förändringsprocess 1922-1981 med bas i företagets produkter, relationer och resurser1994Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Företagets omvandling är en ständig process av utbyten med andra företag. Genom utbyte mellan företag av såväl varor och tjänster som kunskap och kompetens skapas relationer. Ett företags interaktion med andra företag utgör därmed en omvandlingskraft. En annan drivkraft utgör den interna kompetensomvandlingen av resurser inom ett företag. Företaget är en organisation av individer som drivs av sina uppfattningar och det egna företaget och de omgivande företagen. Teknikfaktorn är också en betydelsefull förändringskraft för industriföretag. Den beaktas genom företagets produkter som ses som "bärare" av omvandling. Med utgångspunkt från verkstadsföretagets produkter söker författaren skapa en helhetsförståelse för hur företaget AB Hägglund & Söner förändrats över lång tid.

    I avhandlingen ingår också "En produkthistoria", den separat publicerade empiriska delen som beskriver AB Hägglund & Söner från 1922 till 1981.
