    Quality of life and health promotion intervention: a follow up study among newly-arrived Arabic-speaking refugees in Malmö, Sweden2012In: International Journal of Migration, Health and Social Care, ISSN 1747-9894, E-ISSN 2042-8650, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 112-126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This study aims to illuminate self-perceived health-related quality of life (HRQoL) among newly-arrived Arabic-speaking refugees in Malmo¨ , Sweden participating in a specific group Health Promotion activity. Design/methodology/approach – Data consist of questionnaires, observations and oral evaluations in groups. Questions about HRQoL was measured by EQ-5D self-assessment containing five dimensions and three response options of severity, including a visual analog health rating scale. Participants’ sleep patterns were measured by a sleep and recovery questionnaire with questions about sleep quality and sleep quantity. Findings – The results show that disturbed sleep relates to EQ-5D variables and to health rating scores. Moreover, there are changes over time and participants’ perceptions of their health and quality of life in most EQ-5D variables have significantly increased after the end of activity. In the variables pain and depression an improvement remains even at second follow up and health rating scores are higher at both follow ups relative to what it was originally. Sleep and recovery problems were perceived as less difficult at the course completion and second follow up. Research limitations/implications – Because of practical and ethical reasons there is an absence of a control group in this study. Practical implications – The paper includes implications for education in medicine, health care and social work, for the design of the refugee reception programs and for the inter-professional collaborations. Originality/value – The paper shows that health promotion interventions in group setting in the first stage of resettlement turn out to be useful according to HRQoL and knowledge of the health care system.
