Närhet och distans : utmaningar i personcentrerad vård för diabetessjuksköterskor inom primärvården (Svenska)
Abstract [en]

Background Type 2 diabetes demands self-management over time, to maintain health and reduce the risk for diabetes complications. However, despite efforts, many persons with type 2 diabetes are not reaching the treatment targets. In diabetes, person-centred care and group education are recommended. Diabetes specialist nurses (DSNs) working in primary healthcare have an important role in supporting patients with type 2 diabetes in their self-management to adapt to the demands of the disease in everyday life. Therefore, it is important to explore the DSNs’ professional role and their experiences of practising person-centred care. The overall aim of the thesis was to explore the professional role of DSNs in primary healthcare, and to describe their experiences of person-centred diabetes care.

Methods The thesis includes three studies with qualitative, and one with a quantitative, approach. Data collection consisted of focus group interviews, individual interviews, observations, and questionnaires. Qualitative content analysis and statistics were used in the analysis. In studies I and II, 29 and 31 DSNs participated, respectively. In study III, 10 DSNs and 44 persons with type 2 diabetes participated. Lastly, in study IV, 10 DSNs participated.

Results The results in the thesis showed that DSNs have a complex and multifaceted professional role that entails striving to be an expert, a fosterer, a leader, an executive, and a role model, which they found challenging. The DSNs perceived high job demands, such as decision-making and learning. The thesis also showed that the interaction between DSNs and persons with type 2 diabetes shifted from empowerment to authority struggles during group support sessions based on person-centred care. The experience of person-centred care was described as enriching, but DSNs also expressed ambivalence, related to an altered professional role.

Conclusion There is a desire by DSNs to be close to persons with type 2 diabetes, although they have several challenges to fulfil, which makes it difficult to uphold a relation with proximity; thus, distance is also present. Even though person-centred care is recommended in healthcare, and despite DSNs’ efforts to practise PCC, the result of this thesis shows that it also implies an altered professional role for DSNs that has to be addressed.

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 [en]

AIM: To explore diabetes specialist nurses (DSNs)' perceptions of their role in terms of clarity, conflict and other psychosocial work aspects.

METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among DSNs in a county in northern Sweden. The DSNs answered the Nordic Questionnaire of Psychological and Social Factors at Work (QPS Nordic) about psychosocial aspects of their work. Statistical analysis compared DSNs with a reference group of different health professionals. Correlations between role clarity, role conflict, and other variables were analysed.

RESULTS: The DSNs perceived more, and higher, job demands, including quantitative, decision-making and learning demands, but also more positive challenges at work compared with the reference group. Role clarity correlated with experiences of health promotion, perception of mastery, co-worker support, and empowering leadership, while role conflict correlated with quantitative and learning demands.

CONCLUSIONS: The DSNs perceived high demands but also positive challenges in their work. Their role expectations correlated with several psychosocial work aspects. It is important that DSNs should be presented with positive challenges as meaningful incentives for further role development and enhanced mastery of their work.

Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the interaction between diabetes specialist nurses (DSNs) and patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) during group sessions about self-management.

Methods: Ten DSNs and 44 patients were observed during group sessions about self-management, and thereafter the observations were analyzed using qualitative content analysis.

Results: The interaction was characterized by three themes: becoming empowered, approaching each other from different perspectives, and struggling for authority. The interaction was not a linear process, but rather a dynamic process with distinct episodes that characterized the content of the sessions.

Conclusion: It is important to achieve an interaction that is patient-centered, where the DSN is aware of each patient's individual needs and avoids responding to patients in a normative way. A satisfying interaction may strengthen patients' self-management, and also may strengthen the DSNs in their professional performance.

Practice implications: Authority struggles between patients and DSNs could be a prerequisite for patients to become autonomous and decisive in self-management. DSNs might benefit from an increased awareness about this issue, because they can better support patients if they do not perceive authority struggles as threats to their professional role.

Abstract [en]

Little research has been done to try to understand how patient-centred care is understood and practised by healthcare professionals specialising in patients with diabetes. Experiences from patient-centred practices need to be highlighted as a way of motivating diabetes specialist nurses to take a patient-centred approach. The aim of this study was to describe diabetes specialist nurses' experiences of practising patient-centred care in the context of a type 2 diabetes intervention. The study design was descriptive and used qualitative methods. Focus group interviews complemented by individual semi-structured interviews were analysed by qualitative content analysis. The main theme of the diabetes specialist nurses' experiences of practising patient-centred care was an altered professional role. The main theme was based on two themes: ambivalence towards practising patient-centred care and enriched relationships with the patients. The ambivalence towards practising patient-centred care was based on the three subthemes: a position of withdrawn expertise, inconvenience of changing routines and insights that patient-centred care is difficult but possible. Their experiences of enriched relationships with patients were based on the two subthemes: courage to discuss the severity of diabetes and increased engagement in patients' daily lives. The diabetes specialist nurses' experiences with practising patient-centred care included doubts about their ability to practise in such a way and about the feasibility of such care. At the same time, their enriched relationships with patients were seen as an opportunity to engage in patients' lives. Training and support for practising patient-centred care may improve diabetes specialist nurses skills in patient-centred care and self-management support in type 2 diabetes.
