Alcohol Consumption in the Geriatric Care : A Study on the Attitudes of Nursing Staff towards Alcohol Consumption (English)
Abstract [sv]

I vårt samhälle informeras det frekvent om alkohol och dess effekter på vår population. Nya forskningsrön gällande alkohol uppkommer med jämna mellanrum, men sällan rör dessa den äldre befolkningen. Samtidigt visar socialstyrelsen att en ny generation äldre med förändrade alkoholvanor växer fram, vilka tar med sig sina vanor in i pensionsåldern. I vår studie har vi valt att lägga fokus på alkoholbruk bland den äldre befolkningen, och i arbetet har vi valt att rikta oss till personal på äldreboenden. Syftet med studien har varit att undersöka hur alkoholkonsumtionen bland de boende bemöts och hanteras av vårdpersonal, detta i kombination med att äldres riskbruk tenderar att öka. För att få svar på våra problemformuleringar har vi genomfört en kvalitativ intervjustudie. Urvalet bestod av sex vårdpersonal, varav fem av dessa var undersköterskor. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten har legat till grund för utformningen av intervjuerna, samt våra funna resultat. Utifrån utsagor från intervjuerna fann vi ut fyra teman som rör vårt syfte och problemformuleringar: en bild av konsumtionen, självbestämmande och livskvalitet, svårhanterliga situationer, samt skilda upplevelser. Med hjälp av dessa teman analyserade vi de resultat som bland annat visar på brist på utbildning gällande alkoholrelaterade frågor, mycket fokus på självbestämmande men även maktmissbruk.

Abstract [en]

In our society we are frequently informed about alcohol and its effects on our population. New research findings regarding alcohol occur at regular intervals, but they rarely involve the elderly. At the same time, the social board to a new generation of older people with changing consumption patterns emerge, who tend to bring their habits into the years of retirement. In our study, we chose to focus on alcohol use among the elderly, and in this work we have chosen to find information through the nursing staff at geriatric care. The aim of the study is to investigate how alcohol consumption among the residents is treated and handled by nursing staff, this combined with that the alcohol consumption that is bordering on abuse is increasing amongst the elderly. In order to properly answer this, we have conducted qualitative interviews. The selection consisted of six nursing staff. The theoretical starting point has been the basis for the design of the interviews and the results we found. Based on statements from the interviews we found four themes related to our purpose and problem formulations: a picture of consumption, self-determination and quality of life, cumbersome situations, and different experiences. With the help of these themes, we analyzed the results that among other things show the low level of education concerning alcohol in elder care, a lot of focus on self-determination, but also abuse of power.
