    The Experience of Younger Adults Following Myocardial Infarction2013In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 23, no 6, p. 762-772Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to elucidate the meaning of the experience of younger people (younger then 55 years) during their first year following a myocardial infarction. We analyzed 17 interviews using a phenomenological-hermeneutic method. The core theme and central phenomenon was the everyday fight to redress the balance in Life, which encompassed an existential, physical, and emotional battle to regain a foothold in Daily Life. The aftermath of a Life-threatening event involved a process of transition while at the same time creating a new meaning in Life. Lack of energy and its impact on the complex interplay of midlife combined with unreasonable demands from employers and Health care professionelas seemed to color the experince of the informants. The knowledge gained in this study can constitute a valuable contribution to overall quality Assurance in nursing care and the development of nursing interventions for the cardiac rehabilitation of younger patients.

    Unintended consequences of gender equality promotion in Swedish multicultural contraceptive counseling: a discourse analysis2017In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 27, no 10, p. 1518-1528Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we explore how reproductive health care providers in Sweden, a country often described as one of the most gender-equal countries in the world, incorporate gender equality ideals in multicultural contraceptive counseling. In the tension between gender equality promotion on one hand and respect for cultural diversity and individualized care on the other, we will demonstrate that values of gender equality were often given priority. This is not necessarily undesirable. Nevertheless, our proposal is that the gender equality ideology may inhibit providers’ ability to think differently about issues at stake in contraceptive counseling, which may negatively influence women’s possibilities to obtain adequate support. At the end of the article, we suggest how health care providers’ reflexivity might be used as a working tool for increased awareness about the taken-for-granted cultural norms that exist in their clinical milieu.

    Befriending Everyday Life When Bringing Technology Into the Private Sphere2017In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 27, no 6, p. 843-854Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present the findings of our phenomenological interview study concerning the meaning of being an autonomous person while dependent on advanced medical technology at home. This was elucidated in the participants’ narratives as befriending everyday life when bringing technology into the private sphere. We discovered four constituents of the phenomenon: befriending the lived body, depending on good relationships, keeping the home as a private sphere, and managing time. The most important finding was the overall position of the lived body by means of the illness limiting the control over one’s life. We found that the participants wanted to be involved in and have influence over their care to be able to enjoy autonomy. We therefore stress the importance of bringing the patients into the care process as chronic illness will be a part of their everyday life for a long time to come, hence challenging patient autonomy.

    Health as Experience: Exploring Health in Daily Life Drawing From the Work of Aaron Antonovsky and John Dewey2020In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 30, no 7, p. 1004-1018Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research has pursued salutogenic and narrative approaches to deal with questions about how everyday settings are constitutive for different health practices. Healthy behavior is not a distinguishable action, but a chain of activities, often embedded in other social practices. In this article, we have endeavored to describe such a chain of activities guided by the salutogenic claim of exploring the good living argued by McCuaig and Quennerstedt. We use biographical material written by Karl Ove Knausgaard who has created a life story entitled My Struggle. The novel is selected upon an approach influenced by Brinkmann who stresses that literature can be seen as a qualitative social inquiry in which the novelist is an expert in transforming personal life experiences into common human expressions of life. The study illustrates how research with a broader notion of health can convey experiences of health, thereby complementing (and sometimes challenging) public health evidence.

    The meaning of support as narrated by family carers who care for a senior person at home2006In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 16, no 5, p. 594-610Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to illuminate the meaning of support as narrated by family carers who care for a senior relative at home. This study originates from a context of advanced in-home palliative care in Sweden. Twenty (n=20) family carers, who cared for a senior relative at home, participated. Narrative interviews resulted in a text which was analysed in three recurring phases: naive understanding, structural analyses and comprehensive understanding using a phenomenological hermeneutical method, inspired by the philosophy of Ricoeur. Two themes were formulated from the analysis: “Experiencing a togetherness with others in caring” and “Sensing togetherness with oneself in caring”. The meaning of support was here understood as “Sensing togetherness”. In the comprehensive understanding this meaning was further illuminated by literature on the concepts of friendship, inner strength and manageability through the sense of coherence theory. Suggestions of relevance to practice and further research are given.

    A Critical Perspective on Mental Health News in Six European Countries: How Are "Mental Health/Illness" and "Mental Health Literacy" Rhetorically Constructed?2020In: Qualitative Health Research, ISSN 1049-7323, E-ISSN 1552-7557, Vol. 30, no 9, p. 1362-1378Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, we aim to contribute to the field of critical health communication research by examining how notions of mental health and illness are discursively constructed in newspapers and magazines in six European countries and how these constructions relate to specific understandings of mental health literacy. Using the method of cluster-agon analysis, we identified four terminological clusters in our data, in which mental health/illness is conceptualized as "dangerous," "a matter of lifestyle," "a unique story and experience," and "socially situated." We furthermore found that we cannot unambiguously assume that biopsychiatric discourses or discourses aimed at empathy and understanding are either exclusively stigmatizing or exclusively empowering and normalizing. We consequently call for a critical conception of mental health literacy arguing that all mental health news socializes its audience in specific understandings of and attitudes toward mental health (knowledge) and that discourses on mental health/illness can work differently in varying contexts.
