    Diabetes specialist nurses' perceptions of their multifaceted role2012In: European Diabetes Nursing, ISSN 1551-7853, E-ISSN 1551-7861, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 39-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore diabetes specialist nurses' (DSNs') perceptions of their professional role in diabetes care.

    Exploratory interviews were used to elicit DSNs' perceptions of their professional role. Twenty-nine DSNs working in 23 primary health care centres in northern Sweden were interviewed in focus groups. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis.

    The DSNs described their profession as encompassing five major roles: ‘expert’, ‘fosterer’, ‘executive’, ‘leader’, and ‘role model’. Challenges interpreted as role ambiguities included feeling uninformed, fragmented, resigned, pressed for time, and self-reproachful.

    The profession of DSN was interpreted as multifaceted, with various roles and role ambiguities. Patient-centred care and empowerment, which are recommended in diabetes care, can be difficult to achieve when DSNs experience role ambiguity.

    Lack of clarity about role demands and difficulty in reconciling different roles may have a negative impact on DSNs' attitudes in clinical encounters and could inhibit patient-centred care. The development of the DSN profession requires improved awareness of the DSN's professional role in the clinical encounter, not only to improve the care of patients with diabetes, but also to retain these professionals.

    Abstract [sv]

    Finns det några (o)likheter i nationella och lokala/regionala mediers hantering av kärnavfallsfrågan? En jämförelse mellan nationella och lokala mediers rapportering och debatt är intressant, eftersom acceptansen för ett slutförvar är väsentligt högre i platsundersökningskommunerna än i landet i övrigt. Massmedierna är både en arena och en aktör i opinionsbildningen och har centrala demokratiska funktioner. I denna studie visas att medierna snarare förstärker än utjämnar skillnader i acceptans.

    Som natt och dag trots samma kärnas ursprung?: om (o)likheter och opinioner i nationella och lokala/regionala mediers hantering av kärnavfallsfrågan2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta forskningsprojekt handlar om de svenska massmediernas hantering av kärnavfallsfrågan under platsundersökningarnas fyra första år. Markanta olikheter mellan nationella och lokala opinioner utgör en central utgångspunkt i studien. Det huvudsakliga syftet är att kvantitativt och kvalitativt analysera (o)likheter i den mediala opinionsbildningen kring kärnavfallsfrågan på riks- respektive lokalplan från platsundersökningarnas början i december 2001 fram till december 2005.

    Tidningar och tevenyheter i nationella, regionala och lokala medier har undersökts. Totalt sett har 1 118 artiklar och 77 teveinslag analyserats, hämtade från femton olika massmedier. Kvantitativ innehållsanalys är den metod som tillämpats för att ta reda på dels vad som tagits upp i medierna, dels vem/vilka aktörer som deltagit och dels hur den journalistiska bevakningen och mediedebatten fördelat sig över tid. Analytiska verktyg från kvalitativ textanalys har också använts för att närstudera hur meningsskapandet kring kärnavfallsfrågan ser ut.

    Resultaten visar att det finns både likheter och olikheter i den mediala opinionsbildningen på riks- respektive lokalplanet. Journalistikens uttryck har varierat, såväl innehållsligt som över tid. Störst var bevakningen i början av år 2002 i samband med att Östhammar, Tierp och Oskarshamn tog ställning till ett fortsatt deltagande i platsvalsprocessen. Påfallande få exempel på undersökande journalistik kan identifieras i materialet. Bildanvändningen i de olika medierna visar på stora likheter. Platsundersökning och SKB är vanligaste teman i pressens texter och televisionens nyhetssändningar. Men intresset för provborrningarna och det lokala arbetet med slutförvarsfrågan, vilket är stort i de lokala och regionala medierna, behandlas däremot knappast alls av riksmedierna. Däremot uppmärksammar de exempelvis transmutationsteknik som en tänkbar lösning på kärnavfallsproblemet. Detta tema berörs i sin tur mycket sällan i de lokala debatterna och förkastas helt av SKB och andra centrala kärnavfallsaktörer som ett tänkbart alternativ till den planerade slutförvaringen.

    Motorspriten kommer!: en historia om etanol och andra alternativa drivmedel2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Motorspriten kommer! löd budskapet i början av 1900-talet. Liknande utfästelser om alternativa drivmedel har gång på gång hörts genom historien. Men de oljebaserade bränslena har behållit sitt grepp om transportsystemet, trots att de alltid ansetts problematiska. Varför?

    Den här boken handlar om olika försök att utveckla och förverkliga alternativ till oljebaserade drivmedel i Sverige. Den spänner över ett drygt sekel, från slutet av 1800-talet och framåt, och behandlar bland annat sulfitsprit, syntetisk bensin, gengas, metanol och den första och andra generationens etanol. I fokus står motiven bakom dessa alternativ varför de har ansetts angelägna och önskvärda liksom de problem och strukturella hinder som de har mött och alltjämt fortsätter att möta. Boken ger historiska och medievetenskapliga perspektiv på de pågående försöken till en omställning på drivmedelsområdet och bidrar till kunskap av värde för såväl beslutsfattare som allmänhet.

    Boken bygger på forskning som utfördes inom det tvärvetenskapliga projektet Framtidens drivmedel? Biobränslen i historisk och kulturell belysning. Den är skriven av samtliga forskare i projektet Annika Egan Sjölander, Helena Ekerholm, Jenny Eklöf, Erland Mårald, Christer Nordlund och Bosse Sundin i samarbete med Henrik Lång.

    Abstract [en]

    How are chemicals framed in the press in Sweden and in Poland? We have conducted interviews with journalists representing local press, tabloids and national newspapers in order to grasp the professionals’ own narratives about chemicals and also the range of diversity within journalism. What at first can appear as a marginalized topic, chemicals, partly because it is not an established journalistic genre, has turned out to have many faces. All news treating additives in food production and every report relating to medicines, such as the growing resistance towards antibiotics among the population, is part of the discourse, not to mention accidental releases of hazardous substances, etc. Secondly, it is a central part of the study to understand how these dominant themes are textually constructed in the press coverage. The news and media debate about chemicals are not only a central information source for the majority of citizens; the mass media also influence stakeholders, opinion-leaders and decision-makers in society. By and large the results indicate that the types of frames that are used by journalists in these two countries have a lot in common, even if the content of the media texts and the specific national contexts differ substantially between Sweden and Poland.

    Burnout and association with psychosocial work environment among Swedish firefighters2017In: Global Journal of Health Science, ISSN 1916-9736, E-ISSN 1916-9744, Vol. 9, no 5, p. 214-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Firefighters are exposed to traumatic and stressful psychosocial and physical strain in their work, and thus they are considered to be a group at high risk of burnout. The aim of this study was to investigate burnout (emotional exhaustion (EE) and depersonalization (DP) among Swedish female and male firefighters and to examine the gender-stratified relationship between psychosocial work environment and burnout when considering the moderating effect of coping strategies among Swedish firefighters. The overall mean values of both EE and DP were notably low in comparison with the general population in Sweden. We found that psychosocial work environment factors increase the risk of burnout among male firefighters. Among men, EE was associated with high demands and lack of social support in work. The association was also confirmed with DP as the outcome and lack of good leadership as the exposure among men. However, among female firefighters the association between psychosocial work environment factors and burnout failed to appear. Among women, EE and DP were only associated with the coping strategy Psychological distancing (PDi). A negative association with DP and the coping strategy Positive Reappraisal (PRe) was also found among women. Regardless of the result from the regression analyses, we must consider that the majority of the female and male firefighters in our study had low scores on the outcome variables EE and DP. Future studies should explore female and male firefighters' context and possible health-protecting environment.

    Gender and Forestry – A critical discourse analysis of forestry professions in Sweden.2007In: Scandinavian Journal of Forestry, ISSN ISSN 0282-7581, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 351-362Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, discourse analysis is used to examine how gender, i.e. ideas of specific masculine or feminine qualities, is linked to forestry professions. The dynamic genderization concept is introduced to understand better how and why the process of gender coding takes place within the forestry field. Discourse here is understood as a particular way of using language and other symbolic forms such as visual images, which does not simply reflect or represent social entities and relations, but constructs or constitutes them. The empirical material consists of 55 job advertisements for supervisors and rangers and 142 texts and images about the forestry professions published in the Swedish forestry press during this years 1990-1991 and 2000-2001. The results show that little has changed during the 10 year period. The discourse continues to (re)produce a manifest portrait of the ideal forester as a hard-working and nature-mastering man. This hegemonic masculinity is to a large extent formed around a rural masculine identity with a strong interest in hunting and wildlife. At the same time, several texts reveal that female foresters appeared to need a male mentor to enter the field, especially at the beginning of the 1990s. It is through such a "helper" that they seem to receive legitimacy as professionals. Further, the forestry press tends to make statements that gender does not matter. In conclusion, the increased number of female foresters has not brought with it any significant change in the dominant gender coding of the studied forestry professions.

    Abstract [en]

    In a climate of growing public concern and monitoring of business's impact on the environment, corporations and industry groups have developed increasingly sophisticated strategies to manage their environmental reputation and to influence the outcome of environmental debates in the public sphere. In this article, we provide an exploratory overview of how the largest Swedish corporations selectively subsidise environmental news-making by supplying it with promotional materials disguised as journalistic copy. We analyse a year's worth of public relations output from the largest 15 companies traded in the Stockholm exchange or owned by the Swedish state, in order to shed light on the environmental themes they cover, the techniques they adopt to maximise the likelihood of media coverage and the evidence they provide to support their claims. Our analysis shows that corporate voices make substantial use of environmental and ecological arguments in their strategic communication, but they provide little useful information about the company's impact and do not usually foster forms of dialogic stakeholder engagement.

    Kärnproblem: opinionsbildning i kärnavfallsdiskursen i Malå2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the centre of this study lies one of the critical questions faced by (late-)modern society, namely that of taking care of the long-lived radioactive waste from nuclear power production. The problems of nuclear waste management are pictured as embracing a complex web of essential issues for society today, in terms of both its capacities and its shortcomings – so called core issues. The principal aim of the thesis is to examine the nuclear waste discourse in Malå, Västerbotten, from a critical discourse analytical perspective, through applying the approach developed by Michel Foucault in The Order of Discourse.

    During the 1990s, the municipality of Malå played a prominent role as a candidate site for the geological disposal of Sweden’s spent nuclear fuel. A five-year process culminated in a local referendum on whether detailed site investigations should be permitted within the community. Following the result no further investigations have been undertaken. The discourse analysis is carried out through a study of opinion formation in the municipality during the period October 1992 to October 1997. Two main types of empirical material have been collected: interviews with opinion leaders (politicians, activists, journalists, information professionals, etc.) and contemporaneous mass media content (the local newspaper and regional television news).

    In the empirical analysis, a review is made of the workings of the external and internal control mechanisms within the discourse; that is to say, how they serve to set limits on the content and form of the sense-making process concerning nuclear waste management. Important themes in the opinion forming process in Malå include information and expertise, opposition and legitimacy, the centre/periphery relationship and the themes of mistrust, partitioning and rejection. Among other themes identified as being marginalised or absent, one example is the Samish citizens’ views on the nuclear question. Four actors play a prominent role as authors of the discourse, namely the nuclear industry, the experts, Greenpeace and the mass media. The voices of resistance groups are also significant. Representatives from authorities and civil servants were most likely to take the commentary role in the discourse, along with journalists.

    In the concluding analysis of the nuclear waste discourse in Malå, two main types of desire for truth, which form the discourse’s main order, are identified. The stronger concerns the will to know, which places the expert with a scientific background as the principal truth-teller. The other is ‘ordinary’ people’s desire, which influences the content and form of the opinion formation. It is also concluded that the mass media institutions play a significant role in this context, not least as mediators. Reflections on contemporary ‘core issues’ to which the analysis bears witness, such as the crisis of democracy, are also included. In addition, the implications of applying the Foucaultian research programme to a study of the nuclear question have been considered.
