    Nursing home placement in Norway: characteristics of older people assigned to placement2015In: Nordisk sygeplejeforskning, ISSN 1892-2678, E-ISSN 1892-2686, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 133-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To determine the characteristics of older people assigned to nursing home placement and to illuminate the factors emphasised in the assignments, thirty-two home health care leaders in a Norwegian municipality completed a questionnaire regarding their assessment of the levels of functioning of the assigned individuals. These assessments were compared with assessments of individuals who had been placed on a waiting list to receive an assignment and of residents who had already been admitted to a nursing home. The individuals who had received assignments had higher rates of cognitive impairment, memory disturbances, disorientation and psychiatric symptoms compared with the individuals awaiting placement. The individuals with assignments had better motor function and a greater ability to accomplish daily activities without assistance than those in the other two groups. The physical workloads were the lowest for the carers of older people assigned to placement. Individuals without cognitive impairment and with low/worse motor function had to wait longer for nursing home placement than individuals with cognitive impairment. Older people with low/worse motor function required more assistance with their daily activities from informal carers. The implications for nursing are to recognise the physical workloads of carers and the necessity of offering them respite and support.

    Does Gender Matter?: Nurses' communications with children during blood test procedures2013In: Nordisk sygeplejeforskning, ISSN 1892-2678, E-ISSN 1892-2686, Vol. 3, no 4, p. 300-312Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Equal opportunities for children are in general regarded as crucial; nevertheless, children are still often treated differently due to their sex. This could limit a child's inherent way of expressing him/herself. Nurses need to be aware of how gender constructions influence their interactions with children. The aim of this study was to illuminate interpretative repertoires that a group of nurses use when communicating with children during blood test procedures in two children's hospitals in Sweden. Data was collected by semi-structured observations of nurses conducting blood test procedures on children, and the observations were analyzed using discourse psychology. Two main groups of interpretative repertoires were found. In one group the repertoires were supporting gender stereotyping and in the other group the repertoires were weakening gender stereotyping. In conclusion, nurses' interactions with children during procedures offer the children different socially and culturally constructed interpretative repertoires about gender. Increased consciousness of gender issues is needed among nurses to enable children to be and act freely, without being forced into limited gendered expectations.
