Type 2 diabetes in general practice - a focus-group study
The objective of this study was to explore the experiences and thoughts of Norwegian general practitioners (GPs) with regard to diagnosis and follow-up of this patient group.MATERIAL AND METHOD: In this qualitative study, three focus-group interviews were conducted with a total of 17 GPs. The interviews were recorded, transcribed and analysed using systematic text condensation.RESULTS: The GPs reported having a busy daily schedule that rarely allowed for targeted identification of patients in the risk zone to be prioritised. They described a patient-centred diabetes care, in which motivating for lifestyle change was consid...

IJERPH, Vol. 18, Pages 4345: The Significance of Demographic Variables on Psychosocial Health from the Early Stage and Nine Months after the COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak. A Cross-National Study
ng Tore Bonsaksen This cross-national study explored stability and change in mental health, quality of life, well-being and loneliness during the early stage and nine months after the implementation of COVID-19 pandemic social distancing measures and periodic lockdowns as adjusted by demographic variables. In the USA, the UK, Australia and Norway, 7284 individuals responded to the invitation to take part in two cross-sectional web-based surveys (April and November 2020), including questions about sociodemographic variables and psychosocial outcomes. Independent t-tests and generalized linear models (GLM) and estimate...

The Effect of Intensive Implementation Support on Fidelity for Four Evidence-Based Psychosis Treatments: A Cluster Randomized Trial
ConclusionsIntensive implementation strategies (toolkits, clinical training, implementation facilitation, data-based feedback) over 12  months can facilitate the implementation of EBPs for psychosis treatment. The approach may be more effective for some practices than for others. (Source: Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research)

g Tine Grimholt Concerns related to the first outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Norwegian population are studied in a cross-sectional web-survey conducted between 8 April and 20 May 2020. The qualitative thematic analysis of the open-ended question “Do you have other concerns related to the pandemic?”, followed a six-step process. Concerns from 1491 informants were analyzed, 34% of women and 30% of men (p = 0.05) provided concerns. Respondents with higher educational level reported concerns more often (86% vs. 83%, p = 0.022). The qualitative analysis revealed five themes—society, health, soc...

Leaving care in Norway in a historic and current perspective: As a function of the Nordic welfare model
AbstractCare leavers need support in the transition to adulthood. Care leavers in Norway benefit from the universalistic and somewhat generous Nordic welfare model. However, this model is constructed to meet general needs identified in the whole population. More specific needs in smaller groups may not be so well planned for. The article discusses this dilemma in the light of two previously published articles by the author and two co ‐authors, where the topics are the history of leaving care support in Norway and how the Nordic welfare model may represent a problematic frame for leaving care support. The ‘parental ...

Changes Over Time and Predictors of Online Gambling in Three Norwegian Population Studies 2013 –2019
Conclusions: Online gambling, especially on mobile phones, has increased significantly during the last 6 years in Norway. Hence, gambling availability seems to have grown, which may pose a risk for development of gambling problems. Compared to offline gamblers, online gamblers were more likely to be men, young, not working or studying, gambling on several games, and having gambling problems. Responsible gambling efforts aiming at preventing or minimizing harm related to online gambling should thus target these groups. (Source: Frontiers in Psychiatry)

Over the past decade, the US has made progress on the core problems of access, cost, and quality involving health care.

In addition, over the past decade, health care costs have stabilized at approximately 18% of gross domestic product, yet per capita costs are far higher than all other high-income countries, includin...

The transition process between child and adolescent mental services and adult mental health services for patients with anorexia nervosa: a qualitative study of the parents ’ experiences
ConclusionImproving the transition by including parents and adolescents and preparing them for the transition period could ease parental caregiving distress and improve adolescents ’ compliance with treatment. Clinicians should increase their focus on the important role of parents in the transition process. The system should implement routines and guidelines to offer caregivers support and guidance during the transition process. (Source: Journal of Eating Disorders)
