    • Yes, health is important, but as much for its importance via social life: The direct and indirect effects of health on subjective well‐being in chronically ill individuals 

      Lamu, Admassu Nadew; Olsen, Jan Abel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-06-29)
      There is an increasing evidence that health‐related quality of life, income, and social relationships are important to our subjective well‐being (SWB). Little is known, however, about the specific indirect pathways that link health to SWB via social relationships and income. On the basis of a unique data set of 7 disease groups from 6 OECD‐countries (N = 6,173), we investigate the direct and indirect ...
    • Yngre barns deltakelse i egen barnevernssak. «Æ kan jo også få være med å bestemme litt!» 

      Wolden, Anette Kristin (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-15)
      Jeg har gjennomført 11 kvalitative forskningsintervju med seks barn i alderen 7-11 år. Tema har vært barnas deltakelse i egen barnevernssak. I intervjuene har jeg brukt elementer fra den dialogiske barnesamtalen ( DCM). Intervjuene er analysert og tolket ut fra ulike teoretiske perspektiver på deltakelse. Barna omtaler sin kontaktperson og sin deltakelse i møter i positive ordelag. Dette til tross ...
    • Yngre og eldre brukere av hjemmetjenesten - ulike behov eller forskjellsbehandling. Flerfaglig praksis i et interaksjonsteoretisk perspektiv 

      Hamran, Torunn; Moe, Siri (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2012)
      Bakgrunn for dette prosjektet er den store veksten i yngre brukere av kommunale pleie- og omsorgstjenester og at eldre brukere, selv om de er flest, får en stadig mindre andel av ressursene. Ulikheter i tjenestetilbudet til yngre og eldre brukere er allerede godt kartlagt. Et sentralt spørsmål i denne undersøkelsen er synet på hva som er nødvendig og hva som er verdig omsorg, og om det er grunnlag ...

    • Young adults and seafood : using the voice of consumers to develop new seafood product concepts aimed at increasing consumption 

      Altintzoglou, Themistoklis (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2010-09-24)
      Young adults do not eat seafood frequently enough because they lack knowledge about the preparation of a quick and easy meal with seafood. One of the ways to improve this situation is to offer young adults a product which is based on their needs and helps them to eat seafood more frequently. The first survey study showed a positive association between health involvement, attitudes towards seafood ...

    • Young Sami men on the move: actors, activities, and aims for the future 

      Saus, Merete; Boine, Else Målfrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-11)
      In this study, we have been interviewing eight young Sámi men about experience with rural-urban and majority-minority transition. The analyses revealed that the transition affected three dimensions in their life: actors, activities, and aims for the futures. The important actors transformed from relatives to friends. Desirable duties transformed to leisure and sports activities. The transformation ...
    • Youth blogging and serious illness 

      Nesby, Linda; Salamonsen, Anita (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-15)
      In recent years, a growing number of young people who experience illness tend to blog about it. In this paper, we question whether and how illness blogs illustrate the intercommunicative aspect of blogging by bringing forth both the literary concept of the implied reader and the sociological concepts of empowerment and agency in the analysis. We argue that young people blogging about serious illness ...

      Breivik, Elisabet; Obstfelder, Aud (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Helsesektoren er preget av organisatoriske endringer og knappe ressurser. Dette kan medvirke til redusert yrkesmotivasjon og arbeidsglede blant sykepleiere. Artikkelen bygger på en kvalitativ studie utført som del av et mastergradstudium i helsefag. Hensikten var å undersøke forhold som førte til trivsel, arbeidsglede og motivasjon i arbeidet. Fem sykepleiere som har vært ansatt på samme sykehusavdeling ...

    • Zebrafish and safety pharmacology. Effects of ethanol on early brain and eye development. 

      Ali, Amina Mohammed (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-05-21)
      Ethanol is well studied with regard to its teratogenic effects in different animal models including humans. Exposure of a fetus to alcohol during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), or ethanol mediated toxicity in animal models. During early embryogenesis, development of the most important organs including the central nervous system (CNS) occurs. Disturbance of any function that ...
    • Zebrafish as a model system for safety pharmacology, using a glucocorticoid and an antimicrobial peptide as test substances 

      Albert, Ingrid (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-05-20)
      The zebrafish is an exciting model organism with a lot to offer and many possible areas of application. Toxicity assays using zebrafish embryos are becoming increasingly popular with the pharmaceutical industry as a tool to bridge the gap between conventional cell based screens and animal testing. The main aim of this project was to explore the zebrafish as a model system for use in safety pharmacology, ...

      Grønli, Ole Kristian; Kvamme, Jan-Magnus; Friborg, Oddgeir; Wynn, Rolf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Background: Mounting evidence suggests a link between low zinc levels and depression. There is, however, little knowledge about zinc levels in older persons with other psychiatric diagnoses. Therefore, we explore the zinc status of elderly patients suffering from a wide range of psychiatric disorders. Methods: Clinical data and blood samples for zinc analyzes were collected from 100 psychogeriatric ...

      Samuelsen, Ørjan; Åstrand, Ove Alexander Høgmoen; Frøhlich, Christopher; Heikal, Adam; Skagseth, Susann; Carlsen, Trine Josefine Olsen; Leiros, Hanna-Kirsti S.; Bayer, Annette; Schnaars, Christian; Kildahl-andersen, Geir; Lauksund, Silje; Finke, Sarah; Huber, Sandra; Gjøen, Tor; Andresen, Adriana Magalhaes Santos; Økstad, Ole Andreas; Rongved, Pål (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-21)
      Carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative pathogens are a critical public health threat and there is an urgent need for new treatments. Carbapenemases (β-lactamases able to inactivate carbapenems) have been identified in both serine β-lactamase (SBL) and metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) families. The recent introduction of SBL carbapenemase inhibitors has provided alternative therapeutic options. Unfortunately, ...
    • "Æ har nokka å fortell" : å arbeide med studentenes egne yrkesfortellinger 

      Knudsen, Liv-Berit (Book; Bok, 2001-06)
      Denne rapporten handler om hvordan studenter og yrkesutøvere kan arbeide med sykepleiefaget ved å bruke egne "yrkesfortellinger". Rapporten belyser hvordan arbeidsformen er brukt ved Høgskolen i Tromsø, Avdeling for helsefag, Videreutdanningen i eldreomsorg, og mine erfaringer og refleksjoner relatert til dette. Arbeidsformen kan også ha relevans for andre yrkesfaglige utdanninger. I rapporten ...
