  • Forebygging av seksuelle overgrep mot barn og unge. Prosessevaluering av kommunalt prosjekt. 

    Svenning, Therese Olsen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-08-01)
    Sammendrag. Seksuelle overgrep mot barn (SOB) er et folkehelseproblem som ofte fører til alvorlige skadelidelser både på kort og lang sikt. Reell forebygging er vanskelig å måle fordi det ikke finnes sikre prevalenstall. Det er trolig store mørketall i statistikken over seksuallovbrudd fordi veldig mange ikke blir anmeldt. Denne norske studien undersøker et kommunalt forebyggingsprosjekts bakgrunn, ...

    <i>Background</i>: Managing a chronic condition takes work, and it is considered important that patients carry out this work. However, knowledge is lacking on what elements enhance self-management work. Persons with food hypersensitivity (FH) seem to do self-management work despite the relatively little support they receive. Our aim is to explore what makes women with FH carry out the work of ...

Spasticity is known to reduce quality of life and contribute to additional symptoms, such as pain and reduced mobility, but the association between spasticity, balance, and mobility has not yet been established. Our aim was to examine whether a relationship exists between spasticity in the lower ...
