    Evju, Anne Svelstad; Høgbakk, Mona Lahm; Lindgren, Sari Johanna; Wiklund Gustin, Lena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-08-31)
    Newly graduated nurses are expected to have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to be safe and accountable practitioners (Maartensson and Lofmark, ¨ 2013). Hence, nursing students should not only develop cognitive knowledge about the what and how of nursing skills, but also about using evidence-based nursing practice. Bergen and Santo (2018, p. 362) defines action competence as ...

    Edvardsen, Trine Lise; Lorem, Geir F; Mehus, Grete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-02)
    In Finnmark, the northernmost county of Norway, many villages are remote and scattered between vast stretches of uninhabited land, with mountain crossings that are often closed in winter or where one can only drive in single file behind a snowplough. This may mean periodic total isolation and daily challenges with long distances to other professionals and hospitals. These special circumstances mean ...

    Wiklund Gustin, Lena; Fredriksson, Lennart; Rakovshik, Sarah (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-08-26)
    Work-related stress is an increasing health problem among nursing teachers, contributing to health problems, disengagement and poor job satisfaction. Negative coping strategies impact on both teachers' and students' teaching-learning experiences. Several interventions have been developed to address work-related stress. There has been less focus on how nursing teachers can learn to recover from ...

  • Brukermedvirkning i samiske områder. Praktisering av urfolkskunnskap innen psykisk helsevern 

    Mathisen, Vår; Sørly, Rita (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-23)
    Brukermedvirkning er et ideal for norske myndigheter og helsevesen, og en rettighet for personer som benytter seg av tjenester, også innen psykisk helsevern. Et relevant spørsmål er om brukermedvirkning representerer en majoritetsforståelse for brukerorienterte tjenestetilbud, og om en slik forståelse direkte kan overføres til arbeid med samisk befolkning. Hensikten med vår studie er å få økt ...
