    BACKGROUND:

    This study on traumatic brain injury (TBI) is based on prospective and retrospective population based data from a head injury register in Boras.

    METHODS:

    Data was collected from the hospital emergency unit, the discharge register, the regional neurosurgical clinic and the coroner's records during 1 year. This district is mixed urban and rural with a population of 138 000.

    RESULTS:

    The 753 cases identified represent an incidence of 546 per 100 000 which includes deaths (0.7%), hospital admissions (67%) and attendance at the emergency department in patients not admitted (32%). Males (644 per 100 000), had 1.46 higher overall rate than females (442 per 100 000). The external causes were dominated by fall from same level (31%) and fall from different level (27%) followed by traffic accidents (16%) and persons hit by objects (15%).

    CONCLUSIONS:

    The incidence of TBI found in this study is high but well in accordance with earlier published Swedish studies.

    Disabled Persons and the Labor Market in Sweden2009In: Social Work in Public Health, ISSN 1937-1918, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 255-272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Persons with disabilities have well-documented problems entering the labor market all over the world. Research reveals that legislation to assist such individuals has relatively less significance than the attitudes of individual employers. In Jönköping, Sweden, a smaller town of about 120,000 inhabitants, about 100 openings for jobs are created annually for people with learning disabilities and reduced employment capacity. Despite difficulties, local labor market agencies succeed to a relatively great extent, to find real and lasting jobs. An intervention often used for these individuals in Sweden is called Special Introduction and Follow-up Support (SIUS). The purpose of this paper is to provide balance to the somewhat biased but dominant view of persons with disabilities and unemployability. This is contradicted by Swedish data showing that it is possible to find jobs for people with disabilities with the support by trained of SIUS advisers.

    Den "brännande" påsen från Systembolaget: En studie om socialsekreterarens yrkesroll2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study strives to gain an understanding of how the social service workers themselves perceive their professional role and how they apprehend how the public perceive social service workers and how the media renders social service workers. To achieve this understanding, the study has used a "mixed method", that is both quantitative and qualitative methods combined. In the study an online survey is used that has been distributed to the social service workers in the municipalities of Jönköping County. The online survey contained closed and open questions. The result shows that the social service workers believe that the media renders them in a negative way. It appears that the social service workers perceive the public to designate "social service workers" and "social work" with negative words such as e.g. "power abusers", "uptight" and "controlling". It is clear from the results that the social service workers view of alcohol and alcohol habits is influenced by their professional role and the knowledge that they have gained about alcohol from this profession. The conclusion is that the social service workers are influenced by what they think the public knows about them and that they are indirectly influenced by the media's render of them. The public influence the social service workers to believe that the public portray them disparaging. The social service worker's alcohol habits and the view on alcohol are influenced by the professional role they have. They choose to not drink to intoxication partly because of the knowledge they receive in the professional role and partly because they feel a responsibility to represent the municipality in a public setting.

    Accuracy and precision of a technique to assess residual limb volume with a measuring-tape2003Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Transtibial stump volume can change dramatically postoperatively and jeopardise prosthetic fitting. Differences between individuals make it hard to give general recommendations of when to fit with a definitive prosthesis. Measuring the stump volume on every patient could solve this, but most methods for volume assessments are too complicated for clinical use.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate accuracy and intra- and interrater precision of a method to estimate stump volume from circumferential measurements. The method approximates the stump as a number of cut cones and the tip as a sphere segment.

    Accuracy was evaluated theoretically on six scanned stump models in CAPOD software and manually on six stump models. Precision was evaluated by comparing measurements made by four CPOs on eight stumps. Measuring devices were a wooden rule and a metal circumference rule. The errors were estimated with intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), where 0,85 was considered acceptable, and a clinical criterion that a volume error of ±5% was acceptable (5% corresponds to one stocking).

    The method was accurate on all models in theory but accurate on only four models in reality. The ICC was 0,95-1,00 for intrarater precision but only 0,76 for interrater precision. Intra- and interrater precision was unsatisfying when using clinical criteria. Variations between estimated tip heights and circumferences were causing the errors.

    The method needs to be developed and is not suitable for stumps with narrow ends. Using a longer rule (about 30 cm) with a set square end to assess tip heights is recommended to improve precision. Using a flexible measuring-tape (possible to disinfect) with a spring-loaded handle could improve precision of the circumferential measurements.

    Nordic clinical guidelines for orthotic treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee: A systematic review using the AGREE II instrument2019In: Prosthetics and orthotics international, ISSN 0309-3646, E-ISSN 1746-1553Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: High-quality clinical practice guidelines are necessary for effective use of resources both at an individual patient- and national-level. Nordic clinical practice guidelines recommendations for orthotic treatment of knee osteoarthritis vary and little is known about their quality.

    OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to critically evaluate the quality of clinical practice guidelines in orthotic management of knee osteoarthritis in the Nordic countries.

    STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review.

    METHODS: Four national clinical practice guidelines for treatment of knee osteoarthritis were assessed for methodological rigour and transparency by four independent assessors using the AGREE II instrument. Summary domain scores and inter-rater agreement (Kendall's W) were calculated.

    RESULTS: Domain scores indicate that many guidelines have not sufficiently addressed stakeholder involvement (average score: 55%), applicability (20%) and editorial independence (33%) in the development process. Inter-rater agreement for assessors indicated 'good' agreement for clinical practice guidelines from Finland, Norway and Sweden (W = 0.653, p < 0.001; W = 0.512, p = 0.003 and W = 0.532, p = 0.002, respectively) and 'strong' agreement for the clinical practice guideline from Denmark (W = 0.800, p < 0.001).

    CONCLUSION: Quality of clinical practice guidelines for orthotic treatment of knee osteoarthritis in the Nordic region is variable. Future guideline development should focus on improving methodology by involving relevant stakeholders (e.g. certified prosthetist/orthotists (CPOs)), specifying conflicts of interest and providing guidance for implementation.

    CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The current review suggests that, for the Nordic region, there are areas of improvement which can be addressed, which ensure clinical practice guidelines are developed under stringent conditions and based on sound methods. These improvements would ensure knee osteoarthritis patients are receiving orthotic interventions based on appropriate guidance from published guidelines.

    A model to facilitate implementation of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health into prosthetics and orthotics2018In: Prosthetics and orthotics international, ISSN 0309-3646, E-ISSN 1746-1553, Vol. 42, no 5, p. 468-475Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health is a classification of human functioning and disability and is based on a biopsychosocial model of health. As such, International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health seems suitable as a basis for constructing models defining the clinical P&O process. The aim was to use International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health to facilitate development of such a model. Proposed model: A model, the Prosthetic and Orthotic Process (POP) model, is proposed. The Prosthetic and Orthotic Process model is based on the concepts of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health and comprises four steps in a cycle: (1) Assessment, including the medical history and physical examination of the patient. (2) Goals, specified on four levels including those related to participation, activity, body functions and structures and technical requirements of the device. (3) Intervention, in which the appropriate course of action is determined based on the specified goal and evidence-based practice. (4) Evaluation of outcomes, where the outcomes are assessed and compared to the corresponding goals. After the evaluation of goal fulfilment, the first cycle in the process is complete, and a broad evaluation is now made including overriding questions about the patient's satisfaction with the outcomes and the process. This evaluation will determine if the process should be ended or if another cycle in the process should be initiated.

    CONCLUSION: The Prosthetic and Orthotic Process model can provide a common understanding of the P&O process. Concepts of International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health have been incorporated into the model to facilitate communication with other rehabilitation professionals and encourage a holistic and patient-centred approach in clinical practice. Clinical relevance The Prosthetic and Orthotic Process model can support the implementation of International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health in P&O practice, thereby providing a common understanding of the P&O process and a common language to facilitate communication with other rehabilitation professionals.

    An innovative sealed shoe to off-load and heal diabetic forefoot ulcers - a feasibility study2017In: Diabetic Foot & Ankle, ISSN 2000-625X, Vol. 8, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Non-removable knee-high devices are the gold standard to treat diabetic foot ulcers located on the plantar forefoot, but they immobilize the ankle, which restricts daily life activities and has negative effects on joint functioning.Objective: To investigate the feasibility of sealing a therapeutic shoe to off-load and heal diabetic forefoot ulcers.

    Design: A case series of seven men with type 2 diabetes and a metatarsal head ulcer were prescribed therapeutic shoes and custom-made insoles. The shoe was sealed with a plastic band. Off-loading was assessed with the F-scan pressure measurement system. Adherence to wearing the shoe was assessed with a temperature sensor and by documenting the status of the seal.

    Results: The off-loading was effective and all ulcers healed. Median time to healing was 56 days (range 8-160). Complications were secondary ulcer (n = 1) and plantar hematoma (n = 1). Five of seven participants did not disturb the seal.

    Conclusions: Sealing a therapeutic shoe is a feasible way to off-load and heal forefoot ulcers. A controlled trial is needed to compare the effectiveness and safety of a sealed shoe to other non-removable devices.

    "Kommunikation är skitviktigt och kommunikation är skitsvårt.": En kvalitativ studie av internkommunikationen i en medelstor organisation i Sverige2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For an organization to be created, exist and develop, internal communication is a prerequisite, witch leads to the entire organization suffering if the communication fails. A good internal communication can lift an activity, motivate and increase the sense of participation among employees and generate job satisfaction and positive effect on employee job performance, which ultimately has a major impact on the organization's performance and success.

    The study is based on a qualitative survey of internal communication from a systems theory perspective on a medium sized automotive company in southern Sweden. Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted at two different sites with informants from all the organization levels. The study aims to increase knowledge about the communications structures, procedures and channels that creates the best conditions for an effective internal communication with focus on communication between management and employees.

    The result shows that it circulates large amounts of information daily in the organization. The employees demanded clearer communication structures, descriptions of communication responsibilities and information policies. The material in the interviews also revealed that employees prefer oral communication of complex and complicated issues and written communication is preferred for fast, clear and operational communications, although employees in some cases could see the advantages of the combination of written and oral communication. The results also show that direct communication between management and employees at the facilities are limited, but the employees still believe that the possibilities for dialogue are good.

    The conclusion is that many of the communication problems in the investigated organization is due to the vagueness of the organizational structure, which has led to that the organization does not have a clear communication structure with guidelines and information policies. Furthermore, we have also come to the conclusion that many of the deficiencies in the information flow may partly reflect management's way of handling the communication and information in the studied organization.

    Med sidoeffekten i fokus: En studie om de paramedicinska insatserna vid ett sprutbytesprogam2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In light of the ongoing discussion regarding the possible introduction of needle exchange programs in Jönköping county, this study aims to compare similarities and differences in practice at four different needle exchange programs in Sweden and to relate these experiences to their objectives and resources. Despite the fact that the law of needle exchange entered into force 2006, needle exchange programs are still a controversial subject of discussion in Sweden. In this contested form of infection care there is an important part though which makes the subject more legitimate. That is the positive social side effects which come as a result of the programs. These effects are mentioned in the study as paramedic care. The method underlying the study is qualitative, semi structured interviews. The material has been analyzed for the relevance of its content and also through organization theory. The starting point is theses, scientific articles and literature on the subject of needle exchange. At the needle exchange programs in Sweden the perceptions regarding the need for and the implementation of paramedical care differs as well as the views of researchers, politicians and professionally active that we interviewed on the subject. A common denominator, however, is the perception of paramedical care at large as something significant for people in active addiction, whether it is the country council or the social services that engaged in it. The conclusion of the study is thus that this form of activities requires a holistic perspective of the care that should be conducted. Cooperation outside the county and municipal boundaries seems favorable. The county councils have more influence than the municipalities but the municipalities on the other hand have greater resources in terms of paramedical care efforts. In the county councils where any needle exchange activities are up for discussion this study could give examples on favorable and less favorable paramedical activities at programs that are currently active.

    A responsibility that never rests – the life situation of a family caregiver to an older person2019In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    When the ageing population increases, the burden and responsibility of close family members will likely increase. Those closely related who assume a great responsibility can be significantly affected in health, well-being and daily life.

    Aim

    This study aims to describe the life situation when family caregivers are imposed responsibility for an older person with complex care needs in their own home.

    Methods

    In this Swedish qualitative study, ten family caregivers were strategically selected in order to achieve variations in the life situation. A reflective lifeworld research design based on phenomenological philosophy was used throughout the data collection with the lifeworld interviews and the analytic process.

    Findings

    In terms of extensive responsibility, the life situation is complex and involves emotions that are difficult to manage. In essence, a paradoxical life situation is described which is experienced as both voluntarily and nonchosen at the same time. The responsibility never rests. The essential meaning is further illustrated with three constituents: loss of freedom, contradictory feelings and affected relationships.

    Conclusion

    A life situation with extensive responsibility for an older family member interferes with the whole life situation with an impact on health and relationships with other people. The findings are crucial for professional caregivers in order to capture the nature of family support in a way that enables a meaningful life for both the family caregiver and the older person being cared for. Knowledge of this will give professional caregivers an increased awareness of the life situation of family caregivers and provide a better understanding of the support they are longing for, and, in some countries, such as Sweden, also are entitled to by law.

    Becoming a guest in your own home: Home care in Sweden from the perspective of older people with multimorbidities2018In: International Journal of Older People Nursing, ISSN 1748-3735, E-ISSN 1748-3743, Vol. 13, no 3, article id e12194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim and objective

    To describe the meaning of the phenomenon home care from the perspective of older persons who live alone with multimorbidity.

    Background

    In line with worldwide changing demographics, conditions for older people in need of home care are changing. In Sweden there is a stay?in?place policy and older people are expected to live and be cared for in their own home as long as possible. Home care, instituted by different laws, is a challenge affecting the older person when the private home becomes a workplace.

    Design

    This study uses a qualitative design with a lifeworld approach.

    Methods

    The study having been conducted in Sweden in 2016, the researchers interviewed 12 older persons that live alone and receive home care. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis.

    Results

    The findings illustrate four sub?themes: adapting to a caring culture, feeling exposed, unable to influence care and forced relations. The overall theme reveals that older people experience a life?changing situation when receiving home care and they become a guest in their own home.

    Conclusions

    Becoming older with increased needs means to disrupt one's life when one's private home becomes a public arena. The gap between an older person's rights by law and the older person's experiences of receiving home care needs to be highlighted to meet the oncoming challenges in providing a home care that includes participation of the older themselves. Only then can care be offered that enables older people to have a sense of control and experience their home as their own.

    Implications for practice

    The findings emphasise the need to view older people as being self?determinant and independent. Older people receiving home care need to be seen as individuals, and their entire life situation should be considered by also acknowledging the important role played by relatives and caregivers.

    Damages have four main functions: reparation, placing of the costs, distribution of the losses and prevention. The rules about damages evolved before liability insurance had the extension it has today, 97 % of the Swedish populations is covered by liability insurance, since it is included in the comprehensive household insurance. Liability insurance should be looked at in the light of the damage rules, but the rules about damages are adapted to the insurance possibilities.

    The Law of damages contains, though the general adjustment article 6:2, the adjustment article 2:4 about children and the adjustment article 2:5 about the mentally ill, a possibility to adjust a non reasonable damage claim. If the liability insurance covers the damages no adjustment is made. Even when the adjustment articles are being used the damages is a heavy burden for the person who is liable for the damages. The liability insurance contains exemptions for damages caused by criminal actions amongst other things and therefore there is still a need for the adjustment articles. It is voluntary to have liability insurance for private individuals. The severity of the consequences for the person liable for the damages leads to that is should be involuntary, at least for children.

    This year a change was made to the Law of damages and the legal guardian of children is now, not only responsible for damages causes when they are negligent, but also in some situations absolute liable. The ground for the change is to clarify the legal guardian’s responsibilities and decrease delinquency. The change is an unjust divergence from damage principles and will not fulfill its purpose.

    Stars' War: Apple vs Dell2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    A great deal of changes has occurred in the computer industry the last few years due to the development of the market, customers and technology. The competition has increased, both domestically and internationally, and in the same time the customer demands have changed and become more demanding to satisfy. The development of technology has led to the apparition of new ways to communicate, such as the Internet. As a result of these changes, the distribution chain has had to be adapted and changed repeatedly over the years.

    Aim of the study

    The purpose of our study is to examine how both Apple and Dell can be successful using different distribution channels in the Swedish market.

    Frame of reference

    Theories regarding the changes in consumer behaviour, different distribution channel strategies, the importance of the Internet, and service management are presented.

    Method

    Based on the theories, research on Apple and Dell was established. The theory has contributed as a base for the empirical findings. As method, a qualitative study was conducted through interviews with managers of Apple Centers in Sweden and Apple management in the US. The facts about Dell are mainly retrieved from Dell’s homepage, different articles, and from an interview with the marketing director of Dell Denmark/Sweden.

    Conclusion

    Our final conclusion is that Apple and Dell have managed to be successful with two different distribution strategies because they have always fulfilled the needs and expectations of their customers, creating a strong relationship with them. Indeed, they sell their product where their customers expect to find them and that is the key of a successful distribution strategy.

    Supporting production system development through the Obeya concept2012In: IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology: IFIP WG 5.7 International Conference, APMS 2012, Rhodes, Greece, September 24-26, 2012, Revised Selected Papers, Part I, Springer, 2012, p. 653-660Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Manufacturing Industry as an important part of European and Swedish economy faces new challenges with the daily growing global competition. An enabler of overcoming these challenges is a rapid transforming to a value-based focus. Investment in innovation tools for production system development is a crucial part of that focus which helps the companies to rapidly adapt their production systems to new changes. Those changes can be categorized to incremental and radical ones. In this research we studied the Obeya concept as a supporting tool for production system development with both of those approaches. It came from Toyota production system and is a big meeting space which facilitates communication and data visualization for a project team. Four lean companies have been studied to find the role of such spaces in production development. Results indicate a great opportunity for improving those spaces and their application to radical changes in production development projects.

    Student Living Lab, kombinera innovation inom boende och byggnadsteknisk forskning med studentbostäder i Jönköping2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The lead time in the construction industry's innovation development today is far too long. Jönköping's population increases and at the same time Jönköping University is expanding. The need for more housing and student housing is therefore a fact. A Living Lab (LL) creates opportunities to solve both above-mentioned situations. It is a home that simultaneously provide different types of researchers with a research platform to test innovations directly in a real-life environment. Such a project could thus be an advantage for a developing city like Jönköping. The purpose of the project is to investigate how LL projects can open opportunities for innovations in housing and building engineering research in Jönköping, while creating new student housing in the city.

    Method: The research strategy is qualitative, the main method is a case study. Methods of data collection are literature studies and interviews. Literature studies take place around the concept, the background and different existing projects. This is done to investigate the development of the LL concept and its establishments. The main method used in this report is interviews, which the majority is done over the phone and a couple of them as site visits. Interviews take place with stakeholders from HSB Living Lab in Gothenburg, stakeholders from KTH Live-in Lab in Stockholm and potential stakeholders from Jönköping.

    Findings: This report serves as a preliminary study for potential stakeholders to establish or participate in a Student LL in Jönköping. In order to shorten lead times in housing and building engineering research, LL has been proven to benefit from innovative research in this area. A project would combine a research arena with new student housing to promote the housing contributions to a more efficient innovation process. In the housing- and construction sector, interest has been shown for innovations in housing environment, real estate and construction business, with efficiency and cost reduction, development and efficiency of materials and smart energy solutions. There is also a research interest for studying of the learning environments and the contributions of the residents to their environment. A potential place of establishment is found just by the university, which would benefit both the university, its research and the establishment of new student housing.

    Implications: To continue developing the work, further research is recommended on the research questions for a LL-project. It is recommended to review additional opportunities that exists in addition to building engineering and develop issues regarding, for example, housing environment and learning environments. When two of the four parts of the university were reached for interviews, it is also interesting to study the interests of the other parts. There would be an interest in studying how a twist of the concept can be applied to find a specific niche for Jönköping. A project would solve several student housing units that would help solve some of the problem regarding the current housing shortage and enable contributing to the development of the city.

    Limitations: As the LL concept in Sweden is at an early stage, background information is related to international focus. The report is then limited to focus on Sweden's two major LLs with establishment in Gothenburg and Stockholm with permanent student housing. Furthermore, the focus is on Jönköping, the city of the authors of the report, its potential stakeholders, establishment opportunities and innovation opportunities for a Student LL project.

    Keywords: Living Lab, student, open innovation, building technology and sustainability.

    Impact of Succession Planning on Employee Retention2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The rise in the employee turnover rates is increasing the concerns amongst the organizations in retaining the employees in the workplace. The higher turnover rates are threatening the business capability in earning higher profits. Grounded by the leadership and motivational theories, the following study aims explore that how the succession planning strategies could help in retaining the employees in the organization. Swedish organizations are chosen as the area of the study. In order to fulfill the purpose of the research, the data has been gathered from primary and secondary tools. The secondary tools used in the study are past papers related to succession planning and employee retention as well as information collected through SHRM/Globoforce employee recognition survey and OECD statistical data. The primary tools used in the study are semi-structured questionnaire and face to face interviews. The data analysis involved the evaluation of the secondary data, face to face interview and classification of themes on the basis of semi-structured questionnaire. By means of the thematic analysis, four main themes were emerged. The findings showed that in order to retain the employees fruitfully, Swedish organizations should work on planning career development programs, identify and develop the talent pool and offer non-monetary rewards to the employees. This will enable them to be committed with the company and stay with it for a longer time. The implications for the study is that it will bring a positive social change by adapting the effective succession planning practices which will as a result help to increase the morale of employee and enhance the business profits by retaining the talented employees in the organization. The study has some limitations on the basis of which, it is suggested to the future scholars to conduct a quantitative study by taking a longitudinal approach in order to validate the findings on the statistical grounds as well.

    Economic Impact of Natural Disasters: Tracking the Medium-Short term Growth Time Path in Asian Countries2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Past decades have witnessed evidence to large-scale upheaval caused by natural disasters. Thus, there is a need for determination of mechanisms through which natural disasters may influence growth, especially for developing countries. This paper traces the medium-short run time path of agricultural and industrial output growth response to four types of disasters in Southern and Southeastern Asian countries. Disasters considered are floods, droughts, storms and earthquakes. The empirical results suggest heterogeneous effects for disasters as well as different economic sectors. In many cases disaster impact was delayed. Generally speaking, floods and droughts have a stronger effect while earthquakes and storms have a weaker one on disaggregated output growth. Floods have a predominantly posi-tive effect while droughts have a negative one on both agricultural and industrial sectors. Storms seem to show a stronger negative effect in the agricultural sector than in industrial sector hinting at existence of short lived indirect effects. Earth-quakes, on the other hand, presented ambiguous growth responses.

    Abstract

    Background The focus of the study is to draw attention to the National Board of Health and Welfare directory information concerning female genital mutilation (FMG). The tradition involving the total or partial removal of the female external genitalia, including intentional damage which alter or cause defects on the female genitalia without medical reasons or reasons (WHO, 2008). As a result of migration and population movements, the tradition came to be recognized internationally and in Sweden. In Sweden, the tradition has a clear relevance to social work because FGM is discussed and defined as violence against women/children, oppression, honour, violation of human and children's rights (Talle, 2008). Authorities in Sweden is facing a challenge to inform, alert, integrate and work preventively with this audience.

    Purpose The purpose of this study is to describe and analyse how the National Board of Health and Welfare by its web platform conveys knowledge of FGM. Based on the websites available texts examined and analysed guidance and knowledge subsidies to various professions, such as social and health care. Further studies show knowledge and support guides professionals to understand and act on issues related to FGM as a work of social, group and at a individual level. Based on the analysis of how the National Board of Health and Welfare promotes the social work of FGM.

    Method The study is based on a qualitative research based on a systematic literature review and inductive approach. The literature review was based on analysis and review by the National Board of Health and Welfare knowledge support. Through a web-based content analysis examined 53 published documents that directly or indirectly affects FGM.

    Results In the results section identified the receiver to think of the published material illustrated in the form of a diagram. The universal information represents half of the sample. The two prominent groups identified as Health and the touch target. In smaller scale material is directed to social and community -/health communicators. Results demonstrate that the health-care system in his work on FGM, has been more widely access to practical and theoretical guidance in comparison to the other receiver groups represented.

    Conclusions The study shows that the National Board of Health and Welfare conveys a work against the tradition of individual, group and societal level. Information about FGM are broadly in line with previous research on the origin, presence, design and impact. The study shows that the National Board of Health and Welfare is a source of knowledge and information on the subject. However, there are differences in the practical guide to creating a basis for action. In the concrete work at the individual level, disparities, depending on whether the issue arises in healthcare or social services.

    Prototype system for automatic ontology construction2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Though a constantly increasing number of ontologies are now available on the Internet, the ontology construction process remains generally a manual task, so consequently an effort demanding task. As no unified ontology construction method is available in the literature, researchers started investigating different frameworks for automatically generating ontologies and, therefore shorten the time required for their construction. This master’s thesis presents a prototype system for automatic construction of ontology, based on ontology design patterns and unstructured texts, such as natural language texts. The use of ontology design patterns allow constructing well structured ontologies and reducing the demand of knowledge experts. A difference between our prototype system and the systems presented in the literature is, the possibility to increase accuracy of the generated ontology by selecting the more relevant terms and associations from the unstructured text and match them against the ontology design patterns. Also, a matching score is introduced to define the level of similarity between the terms extracted and the ontology design patterns. By setting a threshold value on the matching score, the relevant ontology design patterns are selected and used for the ontology construction process. The ontology construction framework used by the prototype system has been developed by the research group in Information Engineering of the School of Engineering, Jönköping University.

    En natt på sjukhus: Faktorer som påverkar patienters nattsömn2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Sömn är ett grundläggande behov för människan. Sömnen har stor betydelse för återhämtning och tillfrisknande. Forskning visar att sjukhusvårdade patienters nattsömn påverkas på många olika sätt. Under sjukhusvistelse kan det vara svårt att bibehålla dygnsrytmen beroende på flera störande faktorer. Sömnbrist kan leda till komplikationer som förvärrar lidande och förlänger sjukhusvistelsen. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva faktorer som påverkar sjukhusvårdade patienters nattsömn. Metod: En litteraturöversikt av kvantitativa artiklar utfördes. Artiklarna analyserades enligt Fribergs trestegsmodell och protokoll för kvalitetskriterier gällande studier med kvantitativ metod. Resultat: 12 artiklar ingick i resultatet. Tre kategorier av faktorer identifierades: Miljörelaterade faktorer, omvårdnadsrelaterade faktorer och symtomrelaterade faktorer. Faktorer relaterade till miljö hade störst påverkan på patienters nattsömn, där huvudfynden var ljud- och ljus. Andra framträdande fynd var omvårdnadsrelaterade faktorer som smärta. Slutsats: Detta examensarbete visade att sjukhusvårdade patienter får sin nattsömn störd av många olika faktorer och att det finns en medvetenhet om detta hos sjukvårdspersonal, men miljö, omvårdnad och symtom gör det svårt att ombesörja ostörd sömn.

    Road Blocks Ahead: Hinderances for Sustainability Progression in the Service Industry2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to cover the topic of hindrances for sustainability progression within the service industry and address contextual differences which might influence the identified hindrances. The researchers have chosen to follow a qualitative research design using a multiple case study. Data was gathered through in-depth semi-structured interviews with two MNE’s and two SME’s in the service industry and was analyzed through data reduction and careful analysis.

     

    Through the selected methods four main findings were identified. Primarily, the absence of engaging and supportive management was seen to drastically deter sustainability progression within a business to the extent of causing a complete stagnation in several cases. Additionally, the results point towards the importance of all levels of employees within an organization. Lack of employee engagement towards sustainability was a key hinderance which could disrupt implementation over a long periods of time. Thirdly the external environment was observed to have a major role in enabling as well as hindering suitability implementation. While the external environment was seen to provide guidance and motivation for corporate sustainability, it also led to varying limitations for all identified cases. Finally, prioritization of other areas was observed to hinder sustainability temporarily until focus could revert back to the topic.

    Direct and Indirect Support for Carers: patterns of Support for Informal Caregivers to Elderly People in Sweden2002In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, E-ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 67-84Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines what support services are offered to informal caregivers and whether the support is aimed directly or indirectly at the caters. Data were collected by means of two mail questionnaires in a Swedish county. The first questionnaire was aimed at each municipality in the region. The second questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 284 voluntary organizations in the region. Only the municipalities proved to have relief services, day care centers and two forms of payment for carers. The voluntary organizations' support for carers was focused on support groups and training as well as services for elderly care recipients. The results indicated that the support services for carers were both direct and indirect and that the municipalities and the voluntary organizations largely offer different kinds of support.

    Informal care and support for carers in Sweden: patterns of service receipt among informal caregivers and care recipients2004In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 7-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes and analyses the kinds of support received by different categories of informal carers, and the kinds of help that care recipients receive in addition to that provided by various categories of carers. Data were collected in a Swedish county in 2000, by means of telephone interviews. The net sample consisted of 2,697 individuals 18-84 years old, and the response rate was 61%. The results showed that relatively few carers in any care category received any kind of support aimed directly at them as carers. The most widespread form of support received by providers of personal care was relief services. Those most likely to be receiving care from the public care system were people also receiving personal care from an informal caregiver. Nevertheless, the majority of those receiving personal care from an informal carer did not receive any help from the public care system or from voluntary organizations or for-profit agencies. These results indicate that social policy and social work need to clarify the aims of the services they provide. They also need to take the needs of both caregivers and recipients into account when discussing support systems.

    Informal Care in Sweden: a Typology of Care and Caregivers2006In: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, E-ISSN 1468-2397, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 332-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes and analyses the types of informal care provided in Sweden and whether it is possible to distinguish different types of carers. Data were collected in a Swedish county in 2000, by means of telephone interviews. The net sample consisted of 2,697 individuals 18–84 years old, and the response rate was 61 per cent. The results showed that there were large differences in the numbers of male and female carers when the data were divided into a typology of care categories based on different caring tasks. Women were much more likely than men to be involved at the ‘heavy end’ of caring, i.e. providing personal care in combination with a variety of other caring tasks. Men were more likely to provide some kind of practical help for a mother or a neighbour/friend. Even though the Swedish welfare state has been described as universal and characterised by an extensive system of benefits and services intended to cover the entire population, the results here indicate that informal care plays an important role and that the gender role patterns are similar to those observed in other types of welfare state. When discussing support systems it is important for social policy to develop programmes that take into account the support needs of both caregivers and care recipients, and not to see their needs in isolation from the social care system as a whole
