  • Ursprungsbefolkningar fungerar som markörer för klimatkrisen

    • Authors: Bo J.A. Haglund
      Pages: 748 - 750
      Abstract: Klimatmötet i Glasgow har börjat när jag skriver den här ledaren. FN chefen, Antonio Guterres sade i sitt inledningstal: Failure is not an option! Spelet mellan länder globalt för att påverka miljökrisen illustreras dagligen i våra tidningar. Oljestaterna bromsar miljöarbetet och har lobbat för att i dokument ta bort faran med de fossila bränslena. Johan Rockström o.a. skriver att ”Mer vatten måste skyddas om vi ska klara klimatmålen”. Det räcker inte med att hantera utsläpp av CO2 från transporter, industri och annan energianvändning. Urbefolkningar runt om i vår värld lever nära naturen eller av naturen. Det gäller i högsta grad samerna i Sapmi. Sapmi som omfattas, förutom Sverige, av länderna Finland, Norge, och Ryssland. Sapmi breder ut sig i Arktisområdet från Kolahalvön till Dalarna.  Förutsättningarna för att bevara miljön och skapa en hållbar utveckling är detsamma som för hälsa – nämligen fred, utbildning, mat, inkomster, ett stabilt ekosystem, hållbara resurser, stödjande sociala nätverk, social rättvisa och jämlikhet. För att åstadkomma förändring för bättre hälsa i befolkningen är möjligheter att påverka i lokalsamhället avgörande. Hälsa är en fråga om möjligheter till att påverka, makt och resurser. Men att förändra är inte lätt. Att förespråka delaktighet i lokalsamhällen innebär att en decentraliseringsprocess startas. En sådan process är en utmaning för den centraliserade politiska och ekonomiska makten.

  • Samisk hälsoforskning - framsteg och utmaningar

    • Authors: Christina Mienna, Per Axelsson
      Pages: 751 - 757
      Abstract: Forskningen rörande samisk hälsa har de senaste två decennierna ökat avsevärt och bit för bit börjat förbättra ett fragmentariskt kunskapsläge. Det kan också sägas om det internationella forskningsområdet urfolkshälsa (Indigenous Health), där samisk hälsoforskning ofta hämtar jämförelser och inspiration. Vi önskar med detta temanummer väcka intresse för den samiska befolkningens hälsa och sätta ljus på den pågående samiska hälsoforskningen. Temanumret innehåller sammanlagt fem peer-review granskade originalartiklar, två översiktsartiklar och tre recensioner. Välkomna till det första temanumret om samisk hälsoforskning!

  • Mental distress in subjects who did, or did not, move from rural Sami core
           areas to cities in Norway: The impact of Sami ethnicity

    • Authors: Astrid Eriksen, Marita Melhus, Bjarne Koster Jacobsen, Ann-Ragnhild Broderstad
      Pages: 758 - 769
      Abstract: The aim of the study was to compare the level of mental distress of Sami and non-Sami residents in rural Sami core areas with that of people who have moved from these areas to cities in Norway. Previous research on mental health among the adult Sami population has mainly been conducted in rural areas, and there is a knowledge gap concerning the mental health of urban Sami. This study has a cross-sectional design and is based on self-administered questionnaires in two different surveys: the SAMINOR 2 Questionnaire Survey (2012) and the survey From Rural to Urban Living (2014). The total analytical sample consists of 5942 individuals: 3955 rural participants (SAMINOR 2) and 1987 urban participants (From Rural to Urban Living). Chi-square tests, two-sample t-tests, and Wilcoxon’s rank sum tests were used for testing differences between the groups. Multiple linear regression analysis was applied to explore the association between place of residence and a continuous mental distress (HSCL-10) score. Logistic regression analysis was performed to explore the association between place of residence and the prevalence of mental distress, as defined as a HSCL-10 score of ≥1.85. The analyses were stratified by gender and Sami and non-Sami ethnicity. The results show that when comparing people who have moved to a city with people living in rural areas, differences in mental distress were found among non-Sami women only, with a lower level of mental distress in urban non-Sami women. In men, regardless of ethnicity and in Sami women, living in rural or urban areas did not make a difference in their mental distress status.

  • Aspects of quality of life, social capital, and mental health among
           Swedish reindeer-herding Sami

    • Authors: Anette Edin-Liljegren, Lars
      Pages: 770 - 788
      Abstract: Denna studie belyser aspekter på livskvalitet, psykisk hälsa och socialt kapital hos renskötande samer i norra Sverige. Ett frågeformulär distribuerades till medlemmar i 43 samebyar, genom ordföranden i varje sameby. En referensgrupp från stad och en från landsbygdsområden inom renskötselområdet besvarade samma formulär. Renskötande samer rapporterade signifikant lägre tillit till vårdpersonal, än bland referensgrupperna, de kände sig mer uppskattade i sin närmiljö och värdesatte sitt vardagliga liv högre. Renskötande samer i norra delen av området skattade sin psykiska hälsa signifikant bättre och hade en upplevelse av bättre möjligheter att hantera sina livsproblem än renskötande samer i södra delen av området. This study explored some aspects of quality of life, mental health and social capital among reindeer-herding (RH) Sami in Sweden. A questionnaire was distributed by the chairman in the 43 Sami communities, to their members. One reference group from urban and one from rural areas in the core part of the RH area, also responded to the questionnaire. The RH Sami reported significantly lower trust in health care staff, than the reference groups, they also felt more appreciated in their domestic milieu and appreciated their daily life to a greater degree than the reference groups. RH Sami in the northern part reported significantly better mental health and higher ability to manage life compared to RH Sami in the south.

  • Challenges with the interpretation of Sami ethnicity and the height
           differences in epidemiologic research comparing Sami and non-Sami

    • Authors: Susanna Ragnhild Andersdatter Siri, Vilde Michalsen
      Pages: 789 - 801
      Abstract: Ethnicity clusters individuals with shared characteristics and is a common variable in epidemiology. Often it is not specified what is meant by a given ethnicity or what characteristics ethnicity entails in the different contexts. In public health research, ethnicity can be viewed as a non-modifiable risk factor of disease because modifying the ethnic composition in a population is not meaningful, nor ethical, public health policy. Importantly, ethnicity is typically associated with modifiable risk factors that are possible to intervene on for improvement of public health, and hence viewed as a risk marker, not a risk factor. In the SAMINOR 1 Survey (2003–2004) from Northern and Mid Norway, Sami people were on average 6 cm lower than non-Sami people that lived in the same rural area. Low height has been associated with a higher risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, lower risk of some cancer types, and lower socioeconomic status. This article aims to discuss the use and interpretation of ethnicity and height in epidemiologic research when comparing Sami to non-Sami populations. Body height is a highly heritable trait in individuals, whereas, at a population level, the average height may be a marker of long-term exposure to health and living conditions, and hence, a non-modifiable variable for interventions at present. We argue that height may be both an important risk factor for chronic lifestyle disease and an explanatory variable in studies of chronic lifestyle diseases in Sami vs non-Sami populations. For better interpretability of study results, we encourage researchers to express what components or characteristics are assumed to comprise Sami ethnicity and height and clarify which variables may provide interventions. Furthermore, we urge researchers to be aware of the potential for bias when studying health measures influenced by height, such as the popular body mass index.

  • Sex-specific height-correction of weight in a population with ethnic
           groups that differ in stature - the SAMINOR 1 Survey: a cross-sectional

    • Authors: Vilde Lehne Michalsen, David A. Coucheron, Kirsti Kvaløy, Marita Melhus
      Pages: 802 - 812
      Abstract: Background: Body mass index (BMI, weight/height2) is a common proxy for body fatness, but it is negatively correlated with height. In Norway, the ethnic Sami people have had higher BMI and lower height than their non-Sami peers. This article aimed to examine if previous findings of higher obesity measures in Sami compared to non-Sami persist when applying an adequately height-corrected weight index.
      Methods: We estimated a sex-specific height-corrected weight index—the Benn index—that is, weight/heightp where p is estimated from log(weight)-log(height) regression. We used data on 15 717 men and women aged 30 and 36–79 years who participated in the SAMINOR 1 Survey (2003–2004). Correlations between height and weight and the indices BMI and Benn index were calculated using Pearson’s correlation coefficient.
      Results: BMI and height had a modest, negative correlation. Analyses were stratified by sex due to a statistically significant interaction (sex * log(height), p<0.001). There was no interaction with ethnicity (ethnicity * log(height), p=0.07 in women and p=0.24 in men). The p (95% confidence interval) in Benn index (weight/heightp) was estimated to 1.29 (1.21, 1.38) in women and 1.90 (1.83, 1.98) in men. Higher BMI in Sami compared to non-Sami was most evident in women, but Benn index did not differ by ethnicity in either sex.
      Conclusion: Previous findings of higher obesity measures in Sami than in non-Sami may be biased. Future studies should take into account the marked height differences between these groups when comparing obesity indices.

  • Sámi Traditional Healing in Sweden – An Interview Study

    • Authors: Jing Helmersson, Lars Jacobsson, Anne Ouma
      Pages: 813 - 823
      Abstract: Sámi traditional healing has been practiced in the Sápmi region of northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia for millennia. This study focuses on Sámi traditional healing in Sweden. Through interviews with five active healers and 11 key informants, we found that traditional healing is currently alive in Sweden but hidden. Healers treat health problems ranging from the physical to the spiritual, including mental issues and life’s difficult situations. Low-cost methods are used: spiritual healing with prayers and the laying on of hands, consultation, and herbal remedies. Healing takes place either face-to-face or over distance. Healers charge no money but accept small gifts. Being a healer is a calling. A general concern is voiced by informants about the diminishing number of healers in Sweden.

  • Hur ser en god demensvård ut ur ett urfolksperspektiv'

    • Authors: Katarina Nägga
      Pages: 824 - 832
      Abstract: Det är lagstadgat att vård ska erbjudas på lika villkor i Sverige men trots det är vård- och omvårdnadsinsatser utifrån samiskt perspektiv ett eftersatt och ojämlikt område. En grundförutsättning för att kunna bedriva jämlik vård är kunskap om hur behovet av vård ser ut. I urfolkskulturer kan förståelsen för och uttrycket av demenssymtom vara annorlunda vilket medför att särskild hänsyn kan behöva tas till kultur och livsstil. Tidigare studier har visat på vissa skillnader i sjukdomsförekomst mellan samer och referenspopulationen men överlag saknas det uppdaterad kunskap om samisk hälsa. Vad gäller andra urfolk så finns studier som visar på en ökad förekomst av demens jämfört med majoritetsbefolkningar. Data omfattande förekomst av demenssjukdom och dess riskfaktorer i samisk befolkning saknas helt idag. The basis for equal health care is knowledge about the needs for different groups in the society. In Sweden it is statutory that health care and health services must be equal. However, Sami people’s health care needs are substantially overlooked in research as well as in policy. As the understanding and also expression of dementia symptoms might be different among Indigenous peoples, states need to address how culture and lifestyle might affect health services provided for Indigenous people. There are for instance, studies regarding Indigenous peoples that show an increased prevalence of dementia compared with the majority populations. Still in Sweden, we lack data on dementia prevalence and its risk factors in the Sami population.
      Previous and dated studies have shown some differences in prevalence of diseases between the Sami people and the reference population but in general there is a lack of updated knowledge on Sami people’s health and it is particularly visible in the field of research covering the elderly and dementia.

  • Språk- och kulturanpassad vård för samer - är det möjligt'
           Erfarenheter från ett utvecklingsarbete i fyra regioner

    • Authors: Ann-Jeanett Stål, Sofia Kling, Laila Daerga
      Pages: 833 - 842
      Abstract: Denna artikel beskriver några av de erfarenheter som Kunskapsnätverket för samisk hälsa har gjort under fyra års arbete med samisk hälso- och sjukvårdsutveckling. Kunskapsnätverket för samisk hälsa är ett samarbete mellan Region Norrbotten, Region Västerbotten, Region Jämtland Härjedalen, Region Dalarna, Sametinget och ett flertal samiska organisationer. I artikeln ges en schematisk bakgrund till varför vården behöver anpassas till samer. Artikeln belyser behovet av ökad samisk kulturkompetens för att förbättra bemötande och kommunikation i vården. Andra identifierade utmaningar är att den befintliga samiska kompetensen inte tillvaratas på ett ändamålsenligt sätt i vården, samt geografisk och språklig tillgänglighet. This article describes some of the lessons that the Knowledge Network for Sami Health has learned in four years of working with Sami healthcare development. The Knowledge Network for Sami Health is a collaborative effort between Region Norrbotten, Region Västerbotten, Region Jämtland Härjedalen, Region Dalarna, the Sami Parliament and multiple Sami organisations. The article provides an outline background of why healthcare needs to be adapted to Sami people. The article sheds light on the need for increased Sami cultural competence to improve the interaction and communication between Sami patients and those working in the health care system. Other identified challenges are geographic and linguistic accessibility, and the fact that the existing Sami competence amongst health care professionals has not been used in a purposeful way.

  • Om påverkan och skada En diskussion av ett av kriterierna i lagen om
           etikprövning av forskning som avser människor (Lag 2003: 460)

    • Authors: Per-Anders Tengland, Göran Hermerén
      Pages: 861 - 871
      Abstract: Etikprövningslagen (Lag 2003:460) är huvudsakligen lätt att tolka, men ett kriterium innefattar en oklarhet som kan skapa tolkningsproblem och leda till att forskningsprojekt granskas i onödan. Syftet med denna artikel är att diskutera detta kriterium för att se hur det kan, eller borde kunna, tolkas.
      Kriteriet gäller forskning som ”utförs enligt en metod som syftar till att påverka forskningspersonen fysiskt eller psykiskt” eller ”som innebär en uppenbar risk att skada forskningspersonen” och innehåller således två krav. Frågan är om inte det första kravet är alltför inklusivt, eftersom det även gäller metoder där det inte finns någon risk för skada.
      Artikeln presenterar några viktiga distinktioner och tolkningsalternativ, och exempel ges på forskning som verkar omfattas av lagen trots att den knappast borde kräva etikprövning. Författarna avslutar med några tentativa förslag till lösning på problemet. The Swedish Act concerning the Ethical Review of Research Involving Humans (Lag 2003:460) is relatively easy to understand. However, one criterion is unclear, creating an interpretative problem, which might lead to unnecessary reviewing of research projects. The aim of this paper is to discuss this criterion to see how it could, or should, be interpreted.
      The criterion concerns research that “is conducted according to a method that aims to influence a research participant physically or mentally” or “that might entail an obvious risk of harm for the participant,” and, thus, includes two conditions. The question is whether the first condition is not too inclusive, since it also covers the use of methods where there is no risk of harm.
      The article presents some crucial distinctions and alternative interpretations, and gives examples showing that the law seems to cover research that is not in need of ethical reviewing. The authors conclude with some tentative suggestions for solving this problem.

  • Kvinnors upplevelser av bemötandet kring sin sexualitet under sin
           tonårstid som HVB-hems placerade

    • Authors: Amanda Fasth, Camilla Forsberg, Johan Näslund
      Pages: 872 - 881
      Abstract: I denna artikel utforskas kvinnors upplevelser av hur de blev bemötta kring sin sexualitet av personalen under sin tidigare HVB-hems placering. Materialet består av fem intervjuer med kvinnor som var HVB-hems placerade under sin tonårstid. Resultaten visar att kvinnorna har en kollektiv upplevelse av att personalens bemötande fick dem att känna skam, skuld och att de var avvikande från det ”normala”. Samtal gällande sex, sexualitet och sexuella övergrepp begränsades på olika sätt. Utifrån bemötandet uppstod ett spänningsläge för kvinnorna där de upplevde både en vilja och ovilja av att få samtala om dessa ämnen med personalen. Utifrån kvinnornas upplevelser av personalens bemötande framträder en bild av kompetensbrist hos personalen i frågor gällande sex, sexualitet och sexuella övergrepp, och en institutionskultur som undviker att prata om sexualitet. This article examines how women retrospectively experience the treatment they have received regarding their sexuality from staff during their time in HVB-homes as teenagers. Five women have been interviewed. The results of the study show that the women have a collective experience of shame, guilt, and sexual deviance resulting from the staff’s treatment. Conversations regarding sex, sexuality and sexual abuse were limited by staff in different ways. The treatment caused an ambivalence for the respondents where they both felt they needed to discuss these subjects but also felt a disinclination to discuss them with the staff. The respondents’ experiences testify to a lack of competence in the staff in dealing with sex, sexuality and sexual abuse, and an institutional culture with a lot of avoidant behavior.

      Abstract: Jag tar fram min trumpet och blåser en fanfar för socionomutbildningen som fyller ett hundra år. Det var tack vare kvinnorörelsen och fredsrörelsen som den kom till berättar seniorprofessorn i socialt arbete Hans Swärd vid Socialhögskolan, Lunds universitet, när jag ringer upp honom. Och ett spännande och uppfriskande samtal blev det.
