  • Considering Silences in Narrative Inquiry: An Intergenerational Story of a Sami Family 

    Blix, Bodil Hansen; Caine, Vera; Clandinin, D. Jean; Berendonk, Charlotte (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-04-03)
    Through coming alongside a Sami family, we open spaces to contemplate multiple forms of silence. We argue that rather than the antithesis to narrative, silence is an integral part of narrative inquiry. As narrative inquirers we need to be wakeful to what is told and also untold, often simultaneously. We believe that narrative inquiry is not necessarily about breaking silences, but it is also about ...

  • Helsepersonell er prisgitt den informasjonen de får. Samhandling i psykisk helseomsorg – En kvalitativ studie 

    Johansen, Mette Alexandra (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-05)
    <p>Bakgrunn: For at pasienter med alvorlig psykisk lidelse skal få et helhetlig og godt behandlingstilbud uansett hvor i Norge er det avgjørende å sikre gode overganger for mellom spesialist- og kommunehelsetjeneste. Dette impliserer god tverrfaglig og tverretatlig samhandling mellom helsepersonell, noe som er et sentralt satsingsområde i dagens helsetjeneste. Det finns for lite dokumentasjon om ...
  • Faktorer som henger sammen med ungdommers fordommer mot temaet psykisk helse 

    Wollmann, Brita (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-08-01)
    Hovedoppgaven var en del av et større forskningsprosjekt i regi av professorene Ingunn Skre og Rannveig Grøm Sæle. Tidligere studier har forsøkt å kartlegge faktorer som henger sammen med å ha fordommer mot temaet psykisk helse hos ungdom. Kjønn og alder har vist seg å være av betydning, da å være yngre og å være gutt henger sammen mer fordommer mot temaet. Det finnes imidlertid ikke nok studier til ...

At the university of this study, these evaluations are also considered part of students’ ...
  • Helsesykepleieres arbeid med matoverfølsomhet hos førskolebarn En kvalitativ studie om hvordan helsesykepleiere ser på sitt kunnskapsgrunnlag. 

    Pedersen, Marita (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-03)
    Bakgrunn: Matoverfølsomhet er et stort og vedvarende folkehelseproblem. Forekomsten er usikker, men i Europa beregnes det at mellom 11-26 millioner av mennesker lider av matallergi. Prevalensen topper seg i barneårene til mellom 5% og 8%, og den høyeste insidensen er i barnets første leveår. Helsesykepleiere er den yrkesgruppen som tettest følger opp barn, ungdom og deres familier. De er ofte ...
  • The Effects of Perinatal Fluoxetine Exposure on Social and Non-Social Investigation Behaviors in a Novel Environment 

    Johansen, Jesper Solheim; Sylte, Ole Christian (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-07-31)
    Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are increasingly prescribed as medication for various affective disorders during pregnancy. SSRIs cross the placenta and affect serotonergic neurotransmission in the fetus, but the neurobehavioral consequences for the offspring remain largely unclear. Recent research has linked perinatal SSRI exposure to alterations in both social and non-social ...
  • Inhibition of bacterial and human zincmetalloproteases by bisphosphonate- and catechol-containing compounds 

    Rahman, Fatema; Nguyen, Tra-Mi; Adekoya, Olayiwola; Campestre, Cristina; Tortorella, Paolo; Sylte, Ingebrigt; Winberg, Jan-Olof (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-23)
    Compounds containg catechol or bisphosphonate were tested as inhibitors of the zinc metalloproteases, thermolysin (TLN), pseudolysin (PLN) and aureolysin (ALN) which are bacterial virulence factors, and the human matrix metalloproteases MMP-9 and −14. Inhibition of virulence is a putative strategy in the development of antibacterial drugs, but the inhibitors should not interfere with human enzymes. ...
  • Molecular profiling of the liver sinusoidal endothelial cell – a multi-omics approach 

    Bhandari, Sabin (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-08-20)
    The endothelium is the innermost cell layer of blood vessels and has a key role in maintaining vascular homeostasis. Beside the general role to prevent blood coagulation and regulate blood flow, endothelial cells of different vascular beds show tissue specific specializations. This thesis focuses on a unique endothelial cell with immune-like properties, namely the liver sinusoidal endothelial cell ...
  • Massive transfusjonsprotokoller ved norske sykehus med akutt traumefunksjon og deres respektive blodbankers beredskap av transfusjoner og medikamentelle tiltak. Følger sykehusene og deres blodbanker anbefalingene fra Nasjonal Kompetansetjeneste for Traumatologi? 

    Skjei, Skule Ystad (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-07-21)
    Introduksjon: Nasjonale og europeiske retningslinjer anbefaler i dag at et hvert sykehus som har akutt traumefunksjon har en massiv transfusjonsprotokoll (MTP). I denne studien undersøkes utbredelse og innhold av massive transfusjonsprotokoller ved norske sykehus med akutt traumefunksjon og deres respektive blodbankers beredskap.

  • Flow in Physical Activity and Exercise: Exploring the Relevance of Mindfulness and Exertion 

    Karlsen, Karoline (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-14)
    Experiencing flow in physical activity is associated with intrinsic motivation and has proven to be a highly rewarding state of mind (Csikszentmihalyi, 2008). Facilitating flow experiences among regular exercisers can be beneficial in terms of promoting long-term physical activity engagement. In a longitudinal study we explored possible factors predicting flow experiences in exercisers by measuring ...
  • The help may be far away: The effect of construal level and social distance on charity donations 

    Høgsdal, Helene (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-17)
    Is it possible to influence people´s willingness to donate money? In two experiments we investigated whether participant´s (N = 417) willingness to donate money to a charitable cause could be influenced by mental representations and social distance towards the donation target. In both experiments we manipulated the perceived social distance towards the donation target, and the construal level of the ...
  • Risiko for fatale og ikke-fatale skader hos voksne i Norge - en retrospektiv registerstudie på populasjonsnivå av traumer i Norge 

    Andersen, Vegard; Gurigard, Vilde Ravnsborg (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-07-19)
    Formål Det er tidligere vist høyere risiko for død i rurale områder i Norge (2, 3). Paradoksalt er det funnet lavere prevalens av alvorlige, ikke-fatale skader ruralt (3). Vi undersøkte om den økte risikoen for død og lavere prevalens av ikke-fatale skader også gjelder for perioden 2002- 2016, når man bruker Statistisk Sentralitetsbyrås (SSB) sentralitetsindeks som mål for ruralitet. Materiale ...

  • Working for the Best or Bracing for the Worst? Approach and Avoidance Motivation in Planning 

    Bø, Simen; Sjåstad, Hallgeir; Norman, Elisabeth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-11)
    Even though planning is generally helpful in goal pursuit, people do not always choose to plan. The inclination to plan might depend on whether we focus on what we seek to approach or what we seek to avoid. In two pre-registered experiments, we tested the relative effect of approach versus avoidance motivation on willingness to plan (total <i>N</i>=1349). With outcome framing as the experimental ...
  • Blood Pressure Treatment in Kidney Transplant Recipients - Can We Improve? 

    Onsøien, Mari Olsen; Midtvedt, Karsten; Reisæter, Anna Varberg; Aasarød, Knut; Waldum-Grevbo, Bård; Vikse, Bjørn Egil; Eriksen, Bjørn Odvar; Åsberg, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-25)
    <i>Background</i> - Hypertension in kidney transplant (KTx) recipients is common, affecting both patient and graft survival. Annual data from the Norwegian Renal Registry reveal that <50% of adult (>18 y) KTx recipients reach target blood pressure (BP) ≤130/80 mm Hg. The aim of this study was to identify the determinants of failure to achieve BP control.<br><br> <i>Methods</i> - In conjunction ...
  • Nephronectin as a matrix effector in cancer 

    Norvoll Magnussen, Synnøve; Toraskar, Jimita Prashant; Hadler-Olsen, Elin Synnøve; Steigedal, Tonje S.; Svineng, Gunbjørg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-25)
    The extracellular matrix protein nephronectin plays an important regulatory role during embryonic development, controlling renal organogenesis through integrin α8β1 association. Nephronectin has three main domains: five N-terminal epidermal growth factor-like domains, a linker region harbouring two integrin-binding motifs (RGD and LFEIFEIER), and a C-terminal MAM domain. In this review, we look into ...
