Abstract [sv]

Utredning av vuxna med förmodad neuropsykiatrisk funktions-nedsättning har blivit allmänt förekommande först på 2000-talet. Trots att utredningen är omfattande finns endast lite forskning kring hur utredningen påverkar patienten. Effekter, mestadels symtomlindrande, har påvisats vid andra utredningsformer men mycket skiljer dessa utredningar från de neuropsykiatriska. Huvudsyftet med denna studie är att undersöka symtomförändringar och hälsofrämjande effekter för patienten vid neuropsykiatrisk utredning. Single case-design har använts, deltagarna var sex patienter remitterade för neuropsykiatrisk utredning i två olika landsting, och har mätts gällande variablerna ångest, depression och känsla av sammanhang. Resultaten pekade mot symtomlindring och/eller ökad känsla av sammanhang. Detta talar för att tätare samarbete mellan utredande och behandlande enheter bör eftersträvas, och att man genom en medveten strävan skulle kunna öka behandlingseffekterna.

Abstract [en]

Assessment of adults with neuropsychiatric impairments have become more common in the beginning of the 21st century. Due to the extensive nature of the neuropsychiatric assessment procedure it is likely that the assessment will have an influence on the patients presenting problem. Despite this the authors have found only a few research studies on the subject. Some previous studies have shown other types assessments to pose an influence on symptoms. The main purpose of the present study is to investigate whether neuropsychiatric assessment poses an influence on symptoms and/or salutogenic factors. The present study uses a single case design with six patients from two separate neuropsychiatric units. The participants have been measured using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale and the Sense of Coherence Questionnaire. The results indicate that symptoms are alleviated and/or Sense of Coherence is promoted due to the assessment. The implications of these results suggest that closer co-operation between assessment and treatment centres is warranted and is likely to be beneficial to the patient in the sense of more useful assessments and more efficient treatments.
