Abstract [en]

A growing proportion of adolescents struggle with school life and could benefit from special school programmes. School could be an arena for supporting such adolescents and, to meet these challenges, interprofessional collaboration (IPC) has been recommended for better health. The aim of the present study was to explore the experience of IPC in a special school programme offered to adolescents who struggle with school life - from the perspective of the professionals involved. Focus group interviews were carried out with four groups and fourteen participants, and the focus groups included two to five participants each. The focus group interviews were analysed using qualitative content analysis. The analyses from this study resulted in a main theme: IPC in the special school programme is unpredictable. Five categories emerged from the data, including: variations in initiative, significance of individual characteristics, informal and formal contact, lack of criteria and goals, and different obligations. The participants described IPC as differing from case to case, with a lack of criteria and goals for adolescents in the special school programme. They experienced the random nature of whoever took the initiative to collaborate, and that confidentiality and the different documentation requirements could affect IPC.

Abstract [en]

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe the fears of 5- to 9-year-old children related to having acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and their strategies for coping with those fears.

DESIGN AND METHODS: The study had a qualitative descriptive longitudinal design and included a total of 35 interviews with 13 children at three different times during their treatment period. Data were analyzed using a matrix-based method inspired by the work of Miles et al.

RESULTS: Initially, most children reported a fear of needles, but during the treatment period, fewer children reported this fear. Children's coping strategies also changed over time, as they wanted more involvement and control during needle-related procedures. Other fears were having adhesive tapes removed, having a nasogastric tube, and taking tablets. During the treatment period, existential fears related to the seriousness of ALL and its consequences, such as having impaired physical fitness and being different from before and different from others, became more prominent and caused feelings of loneliness and alienation.

CONCLUSIONS: The children described various fears through their treatment period, which they coped with using cognitive, emotional, and functional strategies. Over the 2.5-year period, their strategies changed.

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: Because fears changed over time and varied among these different children, each child must be approached individually and attentively in every encounter.

Abstract [en]

The aim was to describe the nursing staff and ward managers' experiences of safety and violence in everyday meetings with the patients. The qualitative content analyses resulted in four themes: the relationship with the patient is the basis of care; the organizational culture affects the care given; knowledge and competence are important for safe care; and the importance of balancing influence and coercion in care. The staff had a varied ability to meet patients in a respectful way. One way of creating a common approach could be to discuss and reflect upon different options in the meeting with the patient.

Abstract [en]

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe the variation in public health nurses' perceptions of interprofessional collaboration related to adolescents' mental health problems in secondary schools in Norway.

BACKGROUND: Mental health problems among adolescents account for a large portion of the global burden of disease and affect 10-20% of adolescents worldwide. Public health nurses in school health services play an important role in disease prevention and promotion of physical and mental health. In order to serve adolescents with regard to mental health problems, public health nurses are dependent on collaboration with other professionals in schools.

DESIGN: Qualitative interviews were conducted with 18 public health nurses working in the school health services.

METHOD: A phenomenographic approach was used for interviewing and for analysing the qualitative interviews. This study is presented in line with COREQ's checklist.

RESULT: The analysis resulted in three descriptive categories based on eight identified conceptions. The categories are: 'The formal structure has an impact on interprofessional collaboration'; 'The public health nurse is an important, but not always self-evident, partner in interprofessional collaboration'; and 'The primary players are the teachers in collaboration'.

CONCLUSION: The public health nurses describe that they had limited impact on collaboration and were dependent on both the school principal and the teachers for achieving good collaboration. Teachers have the power to decide whether to collaborate with the public health nurse, and public health nurses regard teachers as the most important collaborative partners. The public health nurses need to make themselves and their competence visible.

RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: The findings demonstrated that public health nurses are important collaborators, but are not always included in interprofessional collaboration. This knowledge is essential to strengthen public health nurses' roles and presence in schools, which could most certainly benefit adolescents with mental health problems in secondary school.

Abstract [en]

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe potential risks for patient safety incidents in the radiology department from a radiographer's perspective.

BACKGROUND: A radiology department is a high-tech environment with high communication activity between different health care systems in combination with a large patient flow. Risks for patient safety incidents exist in every phase of a radiological examination. Due to the nature of the activity, a radiology department needs to have its own range of measures to prevent risks linked to radiology.

DESIGN: A qualitative descriptive design.

METHODS: Semi-structured interviews were carried out with 17 radiographers during the period September 2015 to February 2016. The data was analyzed using conventional content analysis. This study followed the COREQ checklist criteria for the reporting of qualitative research.

RESULTS: The analysis yielded 20 different patient safety incidents that could result in the following six types of health care-associated harm: Patients could; (1) be exposed to unnecessary radiation; (2) receive an inaccurate diagnosis; (3) incur drug-induced damage; (4) suffer direct physical injury; or (5) their examination and treatment could be delayed or not carried out; or (6) their general health condition could deteriorate.

CONCLUSION: Lack of communication and knowledge, both internally and externally, can increase risks for patient safety incidents. The study describes a complex chain of activities that represent risks in the radiology department. It needs to be pointed out that it is not always the activities in the radiology department that cause the harm.

RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: To carry out preventive patient safety work, a comprehensive analysis of the entire care chain is required. Patient safety work should also focus on improvement of communication both internally, within the radiology department, and externally. Standardized methodological guidelines, consistent prescriptions of method from the radiologist, and a good working environment are internal success factors for patient safety at the radiology department.

Abstract [en]

Background: Preverbal children are at increased risk for underassessment of pain. Pain is a social transaction involving the child in pain and the nurse assessor. However, our understanding of the nurse's part in this transaction is limited.

Aims: The aim of this study was to explore nurses' assessment of pain in hospitalized preverbal children based on self-selected clinical examples.

Design: Qualitative, descriptive design.

Settings: Five different hospital units in Canada and Norway. All units had an observational pain scale for preverbal children available for use.

Participants/Subjects: Nurses (N = 22) with >= 1 year experience caring for preverbal children.

Methods: Individual, semistructured interviews. Data were analyzed using inductive thematic analysis.

Results: Nurses' assessment of pain in hospitalized preverbal children emerged as a nonlinear complex process incorporating different actions and reflections in response to the child's situation and expression of distress. Information from parents was routinely included in the assessment, although further parental involvement varied considerably. Although each assessment was personalized to the individual child, the nurse used previous experiences to interpret observations of and information from the child and the parents. Few nurses described using structured pain scales, but when used, these scales were included as only one aspect of their overall assessment.

Conclusions: Nurses preferred pain assessment based on clinical judgment and tailored to the individual child. Implementation strategies that aim to integrate structured pain scales with clinical judgment to assess pain may be more likely to succed. Further examination of this approach is warranted.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this studywas to examine howparents of very lowbirthweight (VLBW) infants experienced having their newborn infant enrolled in a randomized controlled intervention trial (RCT).

Design and Methods: A qualitative descriptive design was used. Data were collected through individual semistructured interviews with 15 parents of 9 participating VLBW infants. The data were then made the object of an inductive qualitative content analysis.

Results: The parents expressed trust in the competence and motivation of the researchers and were confident that participating in the project would do no harm, but insteadwould potentially benefit their infant. The parents felt privileged for being given the chance to participate, to commit to the project; theywerewilling to invest their time and effort in the project. Participation could be stressful for the parents, ranging from minor irritation to situations in which they felt overwhelmed and not entirely in control. Many families lived stressful lives, and participation, particularly the follow-up after being discharged, may have added to this.

Conclusions: Infant participation in an RCT can be a positive experience, making the parents feel that they are given a chance to both contribute and receive something special. Participation can also be stressful because of conditions both related and unrelated to the RCT.

Practice Implications: We identified several issues that researchers in future trials with VLBWinfants need to address to minimize parental stress. Recruitment to intervention studies within the immediate period around birth should be avoided, if possible. (C) 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
