Drug utilization research : methods and applications by Monique Elseviers( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drug Utilization Research (DUR) is an eclectic scientific discipline, integrating descriptive and analytical methods for the quantification, understanding and evaluation of the processes of prescribing, dispensing and consumption of medicines and for the testing of interventions to enhance the quality of these processes. The discipline is closely related and linked mainly to the broader field of pharmacoepidemiology, but also to health outcomes research, pharmacovigilance and health economics. Drug Utilization Research is a unique, practical guide to the assessment and evaluation of prescribing practices and to interventions to improve the use of medicines in populations. Edited by an international expert team from the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE), DUR is the only title to cover both the methodology and applications of drug utilization research and covers areas such as health policy, specific populations, therapeutics and adherence

Persistence with dimethyl fumarate in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis: a population-based cohort study by Irene Eriksson( )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purpose: To describe patients initiating dimethyl fumarate (DMF) and measure persistence with DMF, discontinuation, and switching in treatment-na <ve DMF patients and patients switching to DMF from other multiple sclerosis disease-modifying treatments (DMTs). Methods: A population-based cohort study of all Stockholm County residents initiating DMF from 9 May 2014 until 31 May 2017. All data were derived from a regional database that collects individual-level data on healthcare and drug utilization of all residents. The study outcomes were persistence with DMF and DMF discontinuation and switching to other DMTs. Persistence was measured as the number of days until either DMF discontinuation (treatment gap ae<yen> 60 days) or switching to another DMT. Results: The study included 400 patients (median follow-up = 2.5 years). The majority had previously been treated with other DMTs (61%). Throughout the follow-up period, 124 patients (31%) discontinued DMF and 114 patients (29%) switched treatment. Overall, 34% of patients initiating DMF stopped treatment within 1 year and only 43% of patients remained on DMF at 2 years from treatment initiation. Conclusions: DMF had a rapid market uptake likely due to high expectations held by both patients and clinicians. However, persistence with DMF in routine clinical practice was found to be low

A prospective exploration of symptom burden clusters in women with breast cancer during chemotherapy treatment by Maria Browall( )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purpose The aim was to prospectively map symptom clusters in patients with stage I-IIIa breast cancer during standard chemotherapy treatment in a randomised study. Methods Participants completed the Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale (MSAS) at baseline, day 12 after the first and third cycle of FEC 75 or FEC 100, and day 12 after the last cycle of Taxotere. Cut-off values for symptom scores, a mean value based on each individual reporting a symptom including occurrence, frequency, severity and distress for inclusion in analysis, were determined. Results The symptom burden cluster analysis was conducted in two steps and included symptoms with high frequency and high levels of distress. The factor analysis revealed three symptom clusters; physical, gastro (phys/gastro) and emotional, with core symptoms that remained stable over time. The most prevalent symptoms for the total sample during all cycles were as follows: lack of energy (range between 48 and 90%), feeling sad (48-79%), difficulty sleeping (54-78%), difficulty concentrating (53-74%), worrying (54-74%) and pain (29-67%). Conclusion In summary, we have prospectively established that symptom clusters remain stable over time with a basis of core symptoms. This knowledge will aid in the development of effective core symptom-focused interventions to minimise symptom burden for patients treated with chemotherapy for breast cancer

To feel emotional concern A qualitative interview study to explore telephone nurses' experiences of difficult calls by Irene Eriksson( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Aim: To describe telenurses' experiences of difficult calls.Design: A qualitative approach with a descriptive design was used to gain a deeper understanding of the telenurses' experiences. Methods: The data were collected in spring 2017 through semi-structured interviews with 19 telenurses at call centres and primary healthcare centres and were analysed with qualitative content analysis. Results: Becoming emotionally concerned is central to the telenurse's experiences of difficult calls. Difficult calls are accompanied by feelings such as inadequacy, uncertainty and anxiety, which can be described as emotional tension. Emotional tension refers to situations when the caller's expressed emotions were conveyed to the telenurses and altered their state of mind. The telenurses stated that difficult calls that cause them to become anxious remain in their thoughts and go through their minds repeatedly, making a deep impression

Telephone nurses' strategies for managing difficult calls A qualitative content analysis by Irene Eriksson( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Aim: To describe telenurses' strategies for managing difficult calls. Background: Telenursing is a growing and complex area and places great demands on telenurses' knowledge and skills and on their ability to communicate and listen. To become emotionally concerned is central to telenurses' experiences of difficult calls. Design: A descriptive qualitative study. Methods: The data were collected during February 2017 through individual interviews with 19 telenurses at call centres and primary healthcare centres. Data were analysed with qualitative content analysis. Result: The analysis revealed an essential strategy illustrated by the theme "to be calm and secure in themselves." Further categories described telenurses' strategies to manage difficult calls, labelled as: "to show commitment and interest," "to have structure in the call and use support systems," "to pause the call" and "to reflect on difficult calls." The results show that telenurses need multiple strategies to help them to navigate difficult calls
The Early Awareness and Alert System in Sweden: History and Current Status by Irene Eriksson( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Introduction: Over the past decades, early awareness and alert (FAA) activities and systems have gained importance and become a key early health technology assessment (HTA) tool. While a pioneer in HTA, Sweden had no national level EAA activities until 2010. We describe the evolution and current status of the Swedish EAA System. Methods: This was a historical analysis based on the knowledge and experience of the authors supplemented by a targeted review of published and gray literature as well as documents relating to EM activities in Sweden. Key milestones and a description of the current state of the Swedish FAA System is presented. Results: Initiatives to establish a system for the identification and assessment of emerging health technologies in Sweden date back to the 1980s. In the 1990s, the Swedish Agency for HTA and Assessment of Social Services (SBU) supported the development of EuroScan as one of its founder members. In the mid-2000s, an independent regional initiative, driven by the Stockholm County Drug and Therapeutics Committee, resulted in the establishment of a regional horizon scanning function. By 2009, this work had expanded to a collaboration between the four biggest counties in Sweden. The following year it was further expanded to the national level and since then the Swedish EAA System has been carrying out identification, filtration and prioritization of new medicines, early assessment of the prioritized medicines, and dissemination of information. In 2015, the EAA System was incorporated into the Swedish national process for managed introduction and follow-up of new medicines. Outputs from the EAA System are now used to select new medicines for inclusion in this process. Conclusions: The Swedish FAA System started as a regional initiative and rapidly grew to become a national level activity. An important feature of the system today is its complete integration into the national process for managed introduction and follow-up of new medicines. The system will continue to evolve as a response both to the changing landscape of health innovations and to new policy initiatives at the regional, national and international level

Individual parental conversations with non-birthing parents by Margaretha Larsson( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

AIM: The aim of this study was to describe Child Health Service (CHS) nurses' experiences with conducting individual parental conversations (IPCs) with non-birthing parents. BACKGROUND: CHS nurses in Sweden mainly focus on monitoring a child's physical and mental development and the mothers' health in order to support their parenthood. The assignment of the CHS includes identifying dysfunctional social relationships in a family and strengthening responsive parenting. An imbalance arises within the family when someone in the family suffers from illness, which could have a negative effect on the whole family's health and well-being. METHODS: An inductive, descriptive qualitative study design was used to describe and to gain an understanding of the CHS nurses' experiences. Data were collected in 13 interviews, and a qualitative content analysis was performed. FINDINGS: The analysis of interviews with CHS nurses resulted in two main categories, each with three subcategories. The main categories are: working for equality and applying a family focus, and dealing with challenges in the developing assignment. The IPCs stimulate the CHS nurses to work for more equality and to apply a family focus, which can be a way of strengthening the families' health and the children's upbringing. Developing the CHS nurses' assignment can be a challenge that appears to entail positive outcomes for CHS nurses, while also generating the need for CHS nurses to receive supervision to find ways to improve their approach and practice
Life without professional work perceptions about one's self, interpersonal relations and social life after retirement by Ann-Charlotte Dahlheim-Englund( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aim of this study is to understand how healthy, older adults in Sweden perceive their life situation after retirement. The study is based on a lifeworld approach, and a phenomenographic method was used. Eighteen participants were interviewed, and data were analysed according to the phenomenographic principle of qualitatively different categories. Two categories were developed. The first category, "perceptions that draw attention inward, towards one's self", was further described in three subcategories: Sense of decreased status in society, the desire to keep aging at a distance, and contemplation of one's own existence. The second category, "perceptions that draw attention outward, away from one's self" was further described in the following four subcategories: caretaking of family members, involvement in social relationships, finding of deep meaning in animals and nature and engagement with society. In the discussion, the findings are further illuminated through comparisons with concepts such as maturity, wisdom and gerotranscendence, and reflections on the findings 'relevance to a caring context follow. The conclusion suggests this study can provide knowledge that will allow healthcare providers to bridge the gap between generations in order to provide high-quality care. However, for a more profound caring dialogue, for example, about the end of life, a deeper analysis is required
The meaning of growing old: A lifeworld hermeneutic study on existential matters during the third age of life by Lina Palmér( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study investigates existential matters in the third age of life, which encompasses the years after retirement and ends when extensive support needs emerge in the fourth age. As the theoretical starting point in a lifeworld hermeneutic approach, 18 healthy older adults were interviewed about what it means for them to grow old. The interviews were interpreted according to Gadamer's principles of openness and Ricoeur's proposal to provide suggestions on how meaning can be explained. The findings are presented in three interpreted themes: Feeling free, Becoming vulnerable, and Existing in closeness to death. The themes are further interpreted, and a comprehensive understanding is reached with theoretical support from Jean-Paul Sartre's idea of factuality and project. The meaning of growing old is discussed in terms of positive factors, such as healthy aging, transition and gerotranscendence, but also in respect to concerns over future suffering in relation to illness and dependence. It is concluded that the freedom of the third age is greatly appreciated for a healthy life, but also threatened by increased risks of ill health. It is not morbidity in itself that worries most, but the risk of being dependent on care and support from others. This is important to consider when planning and performing care in order to promote a healthy aging
