    LIVING WITH THE LONG-TERM CONSEQUENCES 11-13 YEARS AFTER STROKE: A PHENOMENOLOGICAL STUDY2016In: Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine, ISSN 1650-1977, E-ISSN 1651-2081, Vol. 48, no 10, p. 847-852Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To follow up an original research project of persons 11-13 years after stroke, in order to describe and understand the impact of stroke on everyday life experienced during these years. Design: Eleven persons who had had a stroke were interviewed 11-13 years after the original research project. Data were collected and analysed using the empirical phenomenological psychological method. Results: Three main characteristics were identified from analysis of participants' experiences during the years after stroke: (i) going through the loss of the previous life; (ii) struggling to reclaim the former existence; (iii) finding meaning in a new and different world. Conclusion: This study provides an understanding of the complexity of the lost connection between body and world occurring for a long time after stroke. This understanding provides support for the need for long-term and intermittent support and guidance to enable the re-creation of meaning and participation in everyday life in order to find a new self-identity after stroke, especially among persons with residual cognitive impairment.

    Artistry and disability - Doing art for real?: Affordances at a day activity centre with an artistic profile2017In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 32, no 7, p. 966-985Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking our point of departure from critical disability studies, this study explores affordances of a day activity centre with an artistic profile. The analysis reveals that this centre has two fundamental meanings to the participants; it is a place to create art, and it is a safe haven'. Our conclusion is that the desire to belong, to be in a community and to do artwork, entails a future need for flexible institutional environments, where the social milieu is characterized by increased influence and with an engaging focus, such as that which is offered in cultural work.

    A Balancing Act-How Mental Health Professionals Experience Being Personal in Their Relationships with Service Users2017In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 38, no 7, p. 578-583Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Although being personal in relationships with service users is commonly described as an important aspect of the way that professionals help people with severe mental problems, this has also been described to bring with it a need to keep a distance and set boundaries. Aims: This study aims to explore how professionals working in psychiatric care view being personal in their relationships with users. Method: Qualitative interviews with 21 professionals working in three outpatient psychiatric units, analyzed through thematic analysis. Results: Being personal in their relationships with users was described as something that participants regarded to be helpful, but that also entails risks. Participants described how they balanced being personal by keeping a distance and maintaining boundaries in their relationships based on their experience-based knowledge to counter these risks. While these boundaries seemed to play an important part in the way that they act and behave, they were not seen as fixed, but rather as flexible and dynamic. Boundaries could sometimes be transgressed to the benefit of users. Conclusions: Being personal was viewed as something that may be helpful to users, but that also entails risks. Although boundaries may be a useful concept for use in balancing these risks, they should be understood as something complex and flexible.

    Rett syndrome: Teenagers’ and young adults’ activities, usage of time and responses during an ordinary week – a diary study2019In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Little is known about the everyday life of individuals with Rett syndrome.

    Aim/Objective: To describe ten participants’ (teenagers/young adults) activities during a period of seven days, the time-use, where and with whom the activities were performed and the participants’ responses in the form of visible/audible reactions during activities.

    Material and method: A time-geographic self-administered diary was filled in by 63 informants (parents/support staff) and analysed using the software, DAILY LIFE 2011.

    Results/Findings: The most frequently reported activities were hygiene/toilet, moving around indoors, eating and getting dressed. Most time was spent in sleeping, daily care, medical health care and travel/transportation. Little time remained for receptive activities, daytime rest, physical, social/creative, communication, school/daily work and domestic chore activities, especially for the young adults. Most time was spent with staff, thereafter with families and the least time was spent with friends. The most reported response was “interested”, and “opposed” was the least reported.

    Conclusions: Daily and medical health care activities were time consuming. Improved communication between all parties may increase participation and well-being and provide solutions for handling unpleasant activities and sedentary time.

    Significance: A more varied range of activities may improve the everyday life for individuals with Rett syndrome.
