Det er benyttet fenomenologisk-hermeneutisk analyse. Ungdommene opplever å stå i en posisjon mellom makt og avmakt. I denne mellomposisjonen framkommer det at ungdommene distanserer seg ved hjelp av relasjonell makt, men samtidig setter de seg selv ...
    • ABCD before E-verything else—Intensive care nurses' knowledge and experience of pressure injury and moisture-associated skin damage

    • Ageing and mental health: Changes in self-reported health due to physical illness and mental health status with consecutive cross-sectional analyses 

      Lorem, Geir F; Schirmer, Henrik; Wang, Catharina Elisabeth Arfwedson; Emaus, Nina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-18)
      Objectives: It is known that self-reported health (SRH) declines with increasing age and that comorbidity increases with age. We wished to examine how age transfers its effect to SRH through comorbid disease and mental illness and whether these processes remained stable from 1994 until 2008. The hypothesis is that ageing and/or the increased age-related burden of pathology explains the declining ...

    • Aktuelle forskningsområder for bioingeniører innen medisinsk biokjemi 

      Almås, Synnøve Hofseth; Nilsen, Ragnhild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      <p><i>Innledning.</i> Bioingeniørfaget er lite synlig i helsevesenet. Å identifisere forskningsområder innen biokjemisk laboratoriemedisin, kan være et ledd i å synliggjøre yrket. Mer forskning innen bioingeniørfaget er viktig for å kunne evaluere nye behandlingsteknikker, utvikle evidensbasert praksis og bedre pasientbehandling. Dette prosjektet er andre del av en studie som undersøker aktuelle ...

Municipalities determine the type(s) of service and the amount of care applicants require. The services granted are outlined in an individual decision letter, which ...
    • Allsidighet og agendaer 

      Ytreberg, Beate (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2014)
      Sture Grønli tillegger meg meninger jeg ikke har, og bruker resten av debattinnlegget til å kritisere det han leser inn. Snakk gjerne for NGT Grønli, men få det ikke til å se ut som om min kronikk i Nordlys 20.02.2014 var rettet mot NTG. Jeg nevnte ikke NTG i det hele tatt, men brukte ordet ”toppidrettsgymnas” en gang som ubestemt flertall.
    • Ambulance clinicians’ responsibility when encountering patients in a suicidal process 

      Hammarbäck, Staffan; Holmberg, Mats; Wiklund Gustin, Lena; Bremer, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-04-07)
      Background - Even though the traditional focus in emergency care is on life-threatening medical crisis, ambulance clinicians frequently encounter patients with mental illness, including suicidal ideation. A suicide is preceded by a complex process where most of the suicidal ideation is invisible to others. However, as most patients seek healthcare in the year before suicide, ambulance clinicians ...

In this study, Norwegian occupational therapy students’ (n = 263) approaches to studying were assessed annually across the three-year course, with the aim of exploring changes during the undergraduate study program. Sociodemographic information and the Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students ...
    • Arbeidsglede i hjemmesykepleien 

      Glad, Tone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-26)
      This essay is a reflection on work enjoyment in home care nursing. Nurses describe working days that provide little pleasure. Work enjoyment tends to be the result of nurses’ relationship with colleagues and the people they are in contact with and care for. In interviews, home nurses describe busy days of physical and mental pressure to complete all their tasks. There is little enjoyment and a feeling ...
