Abstract [en]

Malnutrition constitutes a serious and challenging problem in elderly care. In 2015, a Swedish regulation that aims to prevent and treat malnutrition came into effect. This study set out to explore associations between level of adoption of the regulation reported as: no, started, yes, in a previous survey, and registrations in a national quality registry. Registry data on screening and actions extracted from the first trimester in 2014 (n=18967), 2016 (n=20318) and 2017 (n= 25669) represented 209, 197 and 199 of 290 Swedish municipalities respectively. A repeated measures ANOVA showed that there was no effect on screened nutritional status, Pearson's chi-square that there were minor differences in types of actions, and regression analysis that the number of actions increased on average by 0.3 due to a higher level of adoption of the regulation. Over the years studied, five actions were prominent regardless of level of adoption or screened nutritional status. Hence, to date, no firm conclusions regarding effects of the regulation can be drawn. Despite the regulatory nature, it appear as if the regulation and the level of adoption reported so far is routine in theory, although not yet leveraged to an implemented practice visible in the quality registry but instead decoupled from practice.

Abstract [en]

The present article concerns meals from the point of view of children, focusing on structural and sociocultural aspects of meals in a Western context in general, and Sweden in particular. The aim was to study children's perceptions of meals with regard to what, where and with whom meals are eaten and how meals are made. The method used was an internet‐based, ethnological questionnaire, which is a qualitative method in which participants share their experiences and values regarding a certain topic of interest in writing. A hundred and twelve Swedish children were included. The children almost exclusively chose to write about family meals. These meals were described as well‐structured and organized, and were often portrayed in an idealized way, with family members sharing proper meals at home, spending an enjoyable time together with a nice atmosphere and good conversation. The children made a distinction between everyday meals and festive meals, where the main differences were that festive meals were more prone to include extended family and friends besides the nuclear family, and were described in a more exceptional way with regard to what is served and mealtime conditions. The article concludes that the family meal functioned as a way to construct the family and as a site where children acquire norms and values about meals and family identity, but they did so in an active way, by breaking rules and by challenging norms, thereby also contributing to change. The changing nature of the family meal was also seen in an extended proper meal and the commensal aspects surrounding mealtime, as commensality included both commensal eating and commensal foodwork.

Abstract [en]

Food and health have long had dominant position within the subject of Home Economics (HE) in Sweden. However, what constitutes a proper diet, and how it is associated with a healthy lifestyle changes over time. In this article, a discourse analytic approach combined with a didactic perspective are used as the theoretical frame. The aim is to explore how food in relation to health has been constructed within the syllabus of HE. Six HE syllabi from 1962 to 2011 were analysed. From the results three different discourses were identified and named after their main areas of focus: (i) the medical discourse, (ii) the consumer discourse and (iii) the human ecological discourse. Each discourse represents a different way of constructing food in relation to health, and different representations have dominated over the past fifty years. The construction of food in relation to health is thereby seen in its historical and cultural context according to what this knowledge content includes or excludes.

Abstract [en]

Guided by the i-PARIHS framework, this study investigates perceived facilitators in the process of adopting a new regulation launched in 2015 which aims to prevent and treat malnutrition. In May 2016, a national web-based questionnaire was emailed to chief medical nurses in elderly care in all Swedish municipalities (n = 290). The response rate in this cross-sectional study was 75% (n = 217). Fifty per cent of the municipalities had adopted new routines, 42% had started and 8% had not. One third of the respondents considered malnutrition to be a major problem in elderly care and about half considered the new national regulation to have strengthened local work. A logistic regression showed that the odds for having adopted new routines were higher for CMNs with long experience in elderly care and who had previously worked to prevent malnutrition, and for those who considered the new national regulation helpful. To extract underlying factors in the adoption process, two principal component analyses were performed for key actors and support. For key actors, the analysis yielded four factors, explaining 67% of the total variance; (a) first line team, (b) expert team, (c) management team and (d) surrounding resources. For support, the analysis yielded three factors, which explained 65% of the total variance; (a) agile teamwork, (b) management and leadership and (c) acceptance. The slow adoption rate of the regulation raises questions about its impact; this might be an effect of the general trend of decentralisation in the Swedish welfare sector, and in elderly care in particular, making it hard to attain change that is steered centrally. However, malnutrition is a pronounced problem in elderly care and the mandatory nature of the new regulation therefore warrants further investigation of whether its launch has contributed to a reduction of malnutrition by investigating outcomes and preventive actions carried out in practice.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim was to explore the outcome, on a local level, of steering, organisation and practices of elderly care foodservice by Swedish municipalities, and changes relative to national actions.

Methods: A survey using a web-based questionnaire about elderly care foodservice targeting all Swedish municipalities (n=290) was conducted in 2006 and 2013/14. The questionnaire included the topics: organisation of foodservice, its practice in elderly care, and steering devices such as guidelines and policies. Based on the share of a rural population, municipalities were divided into groups: rural (≥50%), urban (<50%) and city (≤20%).

Results: The response rate from municipalities was 80% in 2006 and 56% in 2013/14; 45% participated in both surveys. The results showed increased use of local food policies (P=0.03) and meal choice (P<0.001), while access to clinical/community dietitians declined (P=0.01) between the surveys. In home-help services, daily delivered cook-serve meals declined (P<0.001) and chilled meals delivered three times a week increased (P=0.002) between the surveys. City municipalities used private foodservice organisations the most, (P<0.001) and reported reduced use of cook-serve systems in favour of chilled. In rural municipalities, the use of public providers (98%) and a cook-serve system (94%) were firmly established. Urban municipalities were placed between the other groups.

Conclusions: National actions such as soft governance and benchmarking appear largely to determine local level outcomes. However, conditions for adapting these measures vary between municipality groups. While efficiency enhancing trends were prominent, questions remain whether national actions should be expanded beyond performance to also examine their consequences.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to explore what arithmetical understanding is needed when students with mild intellectual disabilities use recipes during practical cooking lessons in Home Economics. The settings were compulsory schools in Sweden attended by students with intellectual disabilities. Sixteen lessons in Home Economics during which cooking took place were observed. In total, 37 students and three teachers participated. All students had a mild intellectual disability. Their ages varied, but most were between 13 and 14 years old. The sociocultural perspective on learning, combined with a literacy framework, was used as a theoretical foundation for the study. Main findings are that students need an arithmetical understanding of (i) how to interpret numbers, (ii) how to interpret and use units, and (iii) how to compute when using recipes. The knowledge and skills needed to be able to use a recipe are featured in the concept recipe literacy, capturing both theoretical, declarative knowledge and the more practical, procedural knowledge. Recipe literacy can be used to theorize the use of recipes when learning to cook, as in Home Economics.
