Abstract [en]

Volt hockey is a team sport developed for persons with physical disabilities. Because family members are important resources to enable sports participation, the purpose of this study was to illuminate experiences of volt hockey from family members’ perspectives. Focus group interviews were conducted, including 20 family members, and the verbatim transcripts were inductively analysed using reflexive thematic analysis. Family members saw the value of enabling participation in volt hockey, being an inclusive team sport that brings enjoyment and strengthens social relationships within, and outside of, the family. Trying to facilitate sport participation, the need for material resources and other actors was emphasised, such as personal assistance, funders, and healthcare professionals informing about the sport and the engagement of the volt hockey clubs. In conclusion, involvement in volt hockey is emotionally and socially rewarding for family members, but there is a need for additional enablers to allow the sport to grow.

Abstract [en]

Volt hockey is a team sport developed for persons with physical disabilities, but its influence on well-being is unknown. Elements of well-being have been described as positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and achievement constituting a theoretical framework referred to as PERMA. The purpose of this study was to describe how well-being according to PERMA is reflected in the experiences of playing volt hockey. Data were collected through focus group and individual interviews including 21 players. A deductive analysis was conducted using the elements in PERMA as preexisting main categories with an additional main category, named resources needed. Findings showed that all five elements constituting well-being according to PERMA were reflected in the experiences of playing volt hockey. In addition, players emphasized the importance of having the resources needed to play volt hockey. In conclusion, having the opportunity to enjoy playing volt hockey enabled the players to flourish and experience feelings of subjective well-being.

Abstract [en]

Safe drug calculation is important in nursing as insufficient skills pose a risk to patient safety. Therefor solid education in mathematics for undergraduate nursing students must be provided. To support nursing students' skills in drug calculation, a web-based learning platform for drug calculation was created. The aim of this study was to investigate nursing students' experiences of a web-based learning platform for drug calculation in terms of usability and learning support. The study was a cross-sectional comparative study. Ninety-five nursing students participated, out of which 46 students were in semester one and 49 students were in semester six. A questionnaire was used to evaluate the nursing students' experiences of a web-based learning platform for drug calculation in terms of usability and learning support. The findings were informed by statistical and thematic analyses. The majority of the participants evaluated the platform positively. The platform was deemed useful, and it was a support for the nursing students' learning. These findings provide that a web-based learning platform for drug calculation can be used as a complement to traditional lectures. Nevertheless, further research is required focusing teaching strategies facilitating different learning styles and level of computer skills.
