Abstract [en]

Background: Home oxygen therapy (HOT) improves survival in patients with hypoxaemic chronic respiratory disease. Most patients evaluated for HOT are former or active smokers. Oxygen accelerates combustion and smoking may increase the risk of burn injuries and fire hazards; therefore, it is considered a contraindication for HOT in many countries. However, there is variability in the practices and policies regarding this matter. This multidisciplinary Swedish taskforce aimed to review the potential benefits and risks of smoking in relation to HOT, including medical, practical, legal and ethical considerations.

Methods: The taskforce of the Swedish Respiratory Society comprises 15 members across respiratory medicine, nursing, medical law and ethics. HOT effectiveness and adverse risks related to smoking, as well as practical, legal and ethical considerations, were reviewed, resulting in five general questions and four PICO (population–intervention–comparator–outcome) questions. The strength of each recommendation was rated according to the GRADE (grading of recommendation assessment, development and evaluation) methodology.

Results: General questions about the practical, legal and ethical aspects of HOT were discussed and summarised in the document. The PICO questions resulted in recommendations about assessment, management and follow-up of smoking when considering HOT, if HOT should be offered to people that meet the eligibility criteria but who continue to smoke, if a specific length of time of smoking cessation should be considered before assessing eligibility for HOT, and identification of areas for further research.

Conclusions: Multiple factors need to be considered in the benefit/risk evaluation of HOT in active smokers. A systematic approach is suggested to guide healthcare professionals in evaluating HOT in relation to smoking.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we discuss how cultural expertise can be used to neutralize stereotyped images of minority cultures in court in female genital mutilation/cutting–related cases because, wisely employed, it may counteract possible negative effects of typification and judicial stereotyping.

Abstract [en]

The principle of proportionality is used in order to reach a resolution of conflicts between a right on the one hand a and a competing right or interest on the other. The core of the principle is the balancing act between these conflicting rights and interests. I will discuss how the balancing act may be used to benefit the Swedish authorities’ handling of suspected cases of female genital mutilation. Investigation of suspected cases may entail involuntary genital examinations and other interventions that infringes upon the right to privacy and family life. How much state invasion of privacy of individuals, is proportionate to the interest of checking for an inadmissible practice? How may officials balance between conflicting laws when they handle cases of suspected female genital mutilation?

In later decades, the principle of proportionality has gained increased critic, e. g. for its assumed moral neutrality, posing as a pure technical way of perform a cost benefit analysis. The principle doesn’t purport to struggle with moral issues. At the same time, it is obvious that the principle itself rests upon assumptions regarding what is good in a society. In Sweden, as well as in many other countries in western Europe, there is a strong perception that female genital mutilation is a severe social problem. The perception remains although it has been refuted in research. How do public ideas about the scope of the problem in Sweden, as in other western countries, affect the choices made when handling specific cases regarding suspected female genital mutilation? Is it even possible to reach a fair and proportionate balance?

Abstract [en]

This dissertation fills part of the existing knowledge gap regarding the relationship between the legal obligation to document medical care and treatment on the one hand, and the professional practice, conditions and identities of professionals on the other. Three basic questions serve as points of departure: what are the origins of the obligation to document medical care and treatment? How is the relationship between the patient and the professions affected by the obligation? How does the obligation affect professional identities? The dissertation consists of five sub-projects performed with a combined legal and social constructivist approach. Two relate to the historical emergence of an obligation for physicians and other professions to document medical care and treatment in Swedish healthcare. One concerns how standardized forms of documentation affect the patient’s legal position and two are built upon the fact that the legal obligation for licensed psychotherapists within municipal family counselling to document their interventions has lapsed, even though the legislation clearly prescribes such an obligation. The results suggest that the form of governance known as New PublicManagement has been preceded by regulations regarding the obligation ofdocumentation, which are clearly intended to meet financial and organizationalgoals. This may have contributed to the fact that Sweden is one of the countrieswhere New Public Management has influenced the public administration the most.The thesis concludes that the effects of the regulations regarding of the obligationto document medical care and treatment, and the forms of implementation ofthe obligation, are of crucial importance for a patient’s legal position. Furtherresearch is needed in order to highlight and better understand the processes thatare at play when the regulations are enforced and implemented amongst healthcare professionals.

Abstract [sv]

I artikeln analyseras förarbetena inför 1963 års läkarinstruktion med fokus på vilka argument som användes för och emot förslaget att göra journalföring av patienters vård och behandling till en obligatorisk uppgift för läkare. Argumenten sätts i relation till styrningen av dokumentation inom hälso- och sjukvården, som den uppfattas idag.
