    Breastmilk covers all the nutritional needs of the infant the first months of life, with the exception of vitamin D. In addition, breastmilk has a number of protective properties. However, as humans are exposed to polluting chemicals through food, air, water and skin contact, breastmilk also contains contaminants. Taking the present-day levels of contaminants in Norwegian breastmilk and the long ...
  • Kunnskapshierarkiet i evidensbasert sykepleie 

    Martinsen, Kari; Boge, Jeanne Helene (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2008)
    I evidenstenkningen opererer man med et kunnskapshierarki som innebærer at bestemte former for målbar kunnskap blir rangert høyere, eller som mer evidente, enn humanistisk kunnskap. Evidensforskningen står i en sammenheng der formålet er å standardisere og styre praksis. Dette kan gjennomføres ved at offentlige myndigheter legger til rette for slik forskning ved å profilere den som samfunnsnyttig, ...
  • Bodily cleanliness in modern nursing 

    Boge, Jeanne Helene; Kristoffersen, Kjell; Martinsen, Kari Marie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-03-11)
    Why are bodily washing practices the way they are in nursing? Michel Foucault argues that modern democratic societies discipline human bodies in accordance with political interests. In the extension of that argumentation we will show that bodily cleanliness in modern nursing may have been used as a disciplining tool. The first part of our discussion takes as its point of departure the second half ...
  • Arterial cardiovascular diseases and risk of venous thromboembolism 

    Rinde, Ludvig Balteskard (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-12-12)
    Despite differences in epidemiology, pathology, and treatment, growing evidence suggests a bidirectional relationship between venous thromboembolism (VTE), a collective term for pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and arterial cardiovascular diseases (CVD, i.e., myocardial infarction [MI] and ischemic stroke). The aim of this thesis was to investigate the impact of atherosclerosis, ...
  • Dialogkonferanse i klasserommet – bro til bedre læring 

    Eriksen, Liss; Huemer, Jeanette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-02-21)
    Ideelt skal et studium innen praktiske fag føre til et «kick» når man er ferdig og står i den praktiske virksomheten studiet kvalifiserer for. Overgangen mellom profesjonsstudier og praksis har imidlertid generelt vist seg å være en akilleshæl. Artikkelen er en beskrivelse og en diskusjon av et fornyende studentaktivt pedagogisk prosjekt, som et alternativ til tradisjonell klasseromsundervisning. ...

  • Validation of repeated self-reported n-3 PUFA intake using serum phospholipid fatty acids as a biomarker in breast cancer patients during treatment 11 Medical and Health Sciences 1112 Oncology and Carcinogenesis 

    Brunvoll, Sonja Hjellegjerde; Thune, Inger; Frydenberg, Hanne; Flote, Vidar Gordon; Bertheussen, Gro Falkener; Schlichting, Ellen; Bjerve, Kristian S; Hjartåker, Anette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    <p><i>Background</i>: The role of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in breast cancer is not clear and under debate. To explore this relationship it is important to have proper validated dietary assessment methods for measuring the intake of n-3 PUFAs. The aim of the current study is to validate two different methods used to assess the intake of selected n-3 PUFAs as well as food sources of ...
  • Important Factors When Communicating with Sami Patients About Health, Illness and Care Issues 

    Mehus, Grete; Bongo, Berit Andersdatter; Moffitt, Pertice (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-21)
    <i>Norwegian abstract</i>: Kommunikasjon er viktig i utøvelsen av god omsorg. Formålet med denne studien er å utforske hvordan samer beskriver kommunikasjon i møte med helsepersonell når de snakker om helse, sykdom og omsorg og i tillegg hvilke faktorer de utpeker som viktige i denne konteksten.

    Lauritzen, Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-04)
    <p><i>Introduction</i>: Psykisk helsearbeid med voksne pasienter må også handle om barna deres. Det høres så enkelt ut – hvorfor er det ikke det?</p> <p>Jeg har jobbet med temaet barn som pårørende i tiår nå. I løpet av de ti årene har det skjedd mye, og samtidig ganske lite. La meg starte med å si litt om hva vi mener med barn som pårørende. Dersom du har jobbet i helsesektoren i de siste årene, ...
  • Evidence for Cognitive Placebo and Nocebo Effects in Healthy Individuals 

    Turi, Z; Bjørkedal, Espen; Gunkel, Luisa; Antal, Andrea; Paulus, Walter; Mittner, Matthias (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-28)
    Inactive interventions can have significant effects on cognitive performance. Understanding the generation of these cognitive placebo/nocebo effects is crucial for evaluating the cognitive impacts of interventional methods, such as non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS). We report both cognitive placebo and nocebo effects on reward-based learning performance induced using an active sham NIBS protocol, ...
  • Vi har efterhånden fundet vores egne ben som forældre: Forældreskab og sundhedspleje i spændingsfeltet mellem velfærdsstat og privatsfære 

    Haslund, Helle; Risør, Mette Bech (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Der er særligt gennem de sidste 50 år sket en intensivering af et børnecentreret forældre-skab, som i stigende omfang er orienteret mod børns sundhed og udvikling, hvor brug af ekspertråd er centralt. Præmature børn befinder sig i en forhøjet risiko for komplikationer relateret til sundhed, trivsel og udvikling, og de er ved fødslen oftest med forældrene ind-lagt gennem en periode på en hospitalsafdeling ...

    <p><i>Study Design</i>: A randomized, controlled, single-center pilot study.</p> <p><i>Objective</i>: The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of running a trial to explore if early intervention in individuals with chronic low back pain (CLBP) would lead to an early return to work (RTW) and reduce sick leave during 12 months of follow-up compared with patients on a 3-month ...
  • Children’s relationships with birth parents in childhood and adulthood: A qualitative longitudinal study of kinship care 

    Skoglund, Jeanette; Thørnblad, Renee; Holtan, Amy (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-27)
    The topic of interest in this paper is the relationship between children who live in kinship care and their birth parents – through childhood and adulthood. The focus is on what <i>meaning</i> and <i>content</i> children themselves ascribe to such relationships and how this changes over time. To explore this question, we draw on a qualitative longitudinal data set, in which children who grew up in ...
