Patienter med nedre extremitetsamputationer i Vietnam : En kvantitativ studie på patienters nöjdhet med deras utgivna protes och service (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this thesis is to evaluate patients’ satisfaction with prosthetic device and service on lower limb amputations in Danang, Vietnam and to implement comparisons between the subgroups gender, living area, amputation cause and level. Method: A cross-sectional study design was conducted using the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST) 2.0 questionnaire to measure patients’ satisfaction. Fifty patients were recruited through the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the data collection was performed in the patients own homes with an interpreter. The collected data was statistically analyzed with suitable tests using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). Result: The patients were quite satisfied with their prosthetic devices (mean 4.16 SD ± 0.561) and more or less satisfied with their given services (mean 2.83 SD ± 1.213). Significant differences were found between genders regarding the patients’ satisfaction with prosthetic device. There were no significant differences between the remaining subgroups; living area, amputation cause and amputation level. Conclusion: This thesis demonstrates that the patients in Danang appear to be quite satisfied with their prosthetic device, even though they reported problems with the durability of the device. Furthermore, the patients were more or less satisfied with their prosthetic services. The findings in this thesis also reveals that women were less satisfied compared to men regarding the prosthetic device. These conclusions should however be taken with caution, since the reliability and validity was lower than desired and it’s difficult to generalize the results to the population.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att evaluera patienters nöjdhet med deras utgivna protes och service på nedre extremitetsamputerade i Danang, Vietnam och att implementera jämförelser mellan subgrupperna kön, bostadsområde, amputations- orsak och nivå. Metod: En cross-sectional studiedesign blev utförd genom användning av Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST) 2.0 enkäten för att mäta patienters nöjdhet. Femtio patienter blev rekryterade genom International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) och datainsamlingen blev utförd i patienternas egna hushåll med en tolk. Den insamlade datan blev statistiskt analyserad med lämpliga tester genom användning av Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). Resultat: Patienterna var ganska nöjda med deras utgivna proteser (medelvärde 4,16 SD ± 0,561) och mer eller mindre nöjda med deras utgivna service (medelvärde 2,83 SD ± 1,213). Signifikanta skillnader hittades mellan kön gällande patienters nöjdhet med deras utgivna protes. Det fanns inga signifikanta skillnader mellan de resterande subgrupperna; bostadsområde, amputationsorsak och amputationsnivå. Slutsats: Den här studien demonstrerar att patienterna i Danang verkar vara ganska nöjda med deras utgivna proteser, fastän de rapporterade problem med protesens hållbarhet. Dessutom var patienterna mer eller mindre nöjda med deras utgivna service. Fynden i denna studie påvisar också att kvinnorna var mindre nöjda gällande protesen jämfört med männen. Dessa slutsatser skall dock tas med aktsamhet, eftersom reliabiliteten och validiteten blev lägre än önskat och det var svårt att generalisera resultaten till populationen.
