Aim and objectives To explore experiences and the significance of relationships and dynamics among family members living with a child with severe kidney disease. Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children is often incurable, leading to irreversible kidney damage. End‐stage kidney failure in a child impacts daily life and routines, requiring significant social adaptation for all family members. However, little is known about how individual family members experience relationships, interac...

Abstract Research shows that students who feel emotionally insecure are at risk of dropping out of nursing educational program. It is, therefore, important to support student resilience in the international nursing education. The aim of this study was to investigate the lived experiences of undergoing a nursing education as an emotionally insecure student. The method was conducted within a phenomenological-hermeneutic approach, inspired by the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur’s theory of narrativ...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease in children is a complex medical and psychosocial disease with factors that differ from the adult disease in significant ways. Among parents, there is uncertainty about disease progression and lack of confidence in caring for the child. The disease has an impact on the emotional and social well-being of the whole family. OBJECTIVES: To investigate everyday life experiences from the perspectives of members of a family that includes a child with end stage renal d...

BACKGROUND: Nurses who care for acute patients with dementia in a hospital setting report a variety of challenges in regard to meeting the complex needs of their patients. In particular, known barriers to optimal care include a lack of knowledge about dementia, lack of dementia-friendly acute clinical environments, lack of time to care for the individual patient and a prioritised focus on the medical issues that triggered the hospitalisation. Research to date has not specifically focused on nurs...

The acute hospital admission of patients with dementia is associated with poor outcome and higher costs. Much of our knowledge on how hospital stays are experienced by patients and staff is generated from short and fragmented data collections, in which the significance of knowledge about day-to-day care might be overlooked, and might partly explain why the poor outcome for this group of patients is not fully understood. This study used participant observation to follow patients with Alzheimer’s ...

Aim and objectives To explore parents’ experiences of donation to their child before kidney transplantation. Background Transplantation is the treatment of choice for paediatric patients with end‐stage renal disease. Living donor kidney transplantation has shown a higher long‐term transplant survival compared to deceased donor transplantation and entails a more controllable process, with shorter waiting time. Besides complex care and treatment of their child, parents must reflect on the prospect...

Patients with dementia as co-morbidity find hospital stays challenging, because the focus is primarily on the somatic cause for the admission, with less emphasis on the needs pertaining to dementia...

Abstract Background Due to the shortened length of stay in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty, patients must at a very early stage following surgery take responsibility for their postoperative care and treatment. It is important to establish if this treatment modality of fast-track is not only cost-effective, but meets patients’ expectations and needs. Aim To explore the lived experience of patients in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty during the first 12 weeks after discharge. ...

BACKGROUND:The shortage of organs from deceased donors has led to more living donation. Furthermore, immunological developments have made it possible to perform kidney transplantation despite preformed antibodies against the donor organ. This has led to a broader recruitment base of living donors. OBJECTIVE:The objective was to investigate experiences and considerations on becoming, and during the process of being, a living kidney donor. MATERIALS AND METHODS:Interviews and participant observati...
