    Unga mäns hälsa i de nordiska länderna2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Den socialt betingade ojämlikheten i hälsa har tilltagit under de senaste decennierna. Den här utvecklingen har särskilt drabbat unga män i form av ökad förekomst av drogrelaterad sjuklighet och död, värk i nacke och rygg, självmord och skador betingade av våld.

    Utvecklingen har sannolikt en grund i ökade krav för inträde på arbetsmarknaden, vilket i sin tur hänger samman med ökad global konkurrens.

    Den här rapporten tar upp fyra frågor: först beskrivs hälsoutvecklingen bland unga män, sedan utvecklingen av sociala skillnader bland unga, följt av en diskussion om några tänkbara förklaringar till att hälsan är sämre bland män än bland kvinnor. Rapporten avslutas med ett avsnitt som diskuterar förklaringar till varför hälsan bland unga utvecklats sämre än hälsan i andra åldersgrupper.

    Risikobasert tilsyn i de nordiske arbeidstilsynene2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [no]

    Alle arbeidstilsyn i Norden arbeider ut fra en uttalt risikobasert tilnærming. For å nå denne målsetningen er det nødvendig med en metodikk som er i stand til å identifisere risikoutsatte virksomheter, næringer og arbeidstakere. Per i dag er det stor variasjon mellom de nordiske arbeidstilsynene med tanke på hvor langt etatene har kommet i utviklingen av slike metodikker. For flere av landene er derfor utviklingspotensialet på dette området stort. Hensikten med foreliggende rapport, er nettopp å ta fatt i dette utviklingspotensialet. Rapporten presenterer og deler kunnskap om utfordringer og aktuelle løsninger for risikobasert tilsynsvirksomhet på tvers av de nordiske landegrensene. I studien som ligger til grunn for rapporten er det hentet inn data og opplysninger fra arbeidstilsynene i Norge, Sverige, Danmark, Finland og Island.

    Cannabis policy and legislation in the Nordic countries: A report on the control of cannabis use and possession in the Nordic legalsystems2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    How is cannabis use controlled in the legal systems in the Nordic countries? How do the Nordic legal systems see cannabis as a drug, and how does this affect the cannabis user? The Nordic Welfare Centre´s new report Cannabis policy and legislation in the Nordic countries looks at the similarities and differences in legislation and the ways in which the law is enacted in legal practice, police work, and other arenas.

    After alcohol, cannabis is the second most common intoxicant in the Nordics and cannabis use is increasing among young adults in most Nordic countries. It is therefore not insignificant how society views cannabis use: is it a social problem, a health problem, or a problem of law and order? The answer matters a great deal to the user. Increasing use will put pressure on the societal responses although the majority of cannabis users are not problem users in need of treatment.

    Rygeafvænning i Norden2018Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [da]

    Cirka 50.000 mennesker dør af tobaksrelaterede sygdomme hvert år i den nordiske region. Rygning er en af de største individuelle trusler mod folkesundheden, når man måler på sygelighed og dødelighed. Der er derfor et stort potentiale i at forebygge og fremme sundheden inden for rygning til gavn for den enkelte borger og samfundet.

    Nordens Velfærdscenters nye publikation Rygeafvænning i Norden giver et overblik over, hvordan det går med udviklingen af rygning i den nordiske region, og giver samtidig et indblik i hvordan landenes arbejde med ryge- og tobaksafvænning er bygget op. Derudover er der også eksempler på nationale initiativer inden for ryge- og tobaksafvænning, som er afprøvet eller i gang i landene i den nordiske region.

    Smagstilsætningers betydning for brug af snus og e-cigaretter: Med fokus på unge og Norden2019Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Smagstilsætninger i tobak, e-cigaretter og røgfri tobak er noget der appellerer til de unge og de ikke-etablerede rygere. Smagstilsætninger er eksempelvis en ledende årsag til unges start på brugen af e-cigaretter.

    Derudover har de unge også en opfattelse af, at e-cigaretter med eksempelvis smag af frugt er mindre sundhedsskadelige, end e-cigaretter med smag af tobak. Derfor vil restriktioner og reguleringer for smagstilsætninger i e-cigaretter og e-væsker højst sandsynlig få en betydning for de unges brug af produkterne.

    I vores nye rapport Smagstilsætningers betydning for brug af snus og e-cigaretter – med fokus på unge og Norden, har vi taget udgangspunkt i noget af den forskning som findes på området.

    Smoking Cessation in the Nordic Region2018Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Every year around 50,000 people die from tobacco-related illnesses in the Nordic region. Measured in terms of morbidity and mortality, smoking is one of the greatest threats to public health. Initiatives to prevent smoking and to promote health could, therefore, be highly beneficial for the individual and society.

    The Nordic Welfare Centre’s new publication, Smoking Cessation in the Nordic Region, provides an overview of the trends in smoking in the Nordic region while at the same illustrating how the work with smoking and tobacco cessation is structured in these countries.

    The significance of flavour additives in the use of moist snuff and e-cigarettes: With a focus on young people and the Nordic region2019Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Flavour additives in tobacco, e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco are appealing to young people and non-established smokers. Flavour additives are, for example, a leading cause of young people starting to use e-cigarettes.

    Young people also have a perception that e-cigarettes with the flavour of fruit, for example, are less harmful to health than e-cigarettes with the flavour of tobacco. Restrictions and regulations on flavour additives in e-cigarettes and e-liquids are therefore highly likely to have an impact on the use of these products by young people.

    Our latest report,The significance of flavour additives in the use of moist snuff and e-cigarettes – with a focus on young people and the Nordic region, is based on some of the research that is available in the field.

    Indicators for health inequality in the Nordic countries2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Social inequalities in health in the Nordic countries persist and may even be growing. Our new report identifies a list of indicators that can be used to monitor and compare trends in health inequality in and between the Nordic countries.

    Social inequalities apply to almost all diseases, injuries and ailments. It is therefore important for the authorities to monitor social inequalities. Indicators are vital both to set a baseline for work alleviating inequalities and to formulate policies that will improve public health for all groups

    Cross-sectoral cooperation at the ministerial level –with afocus on health inequalities: A qualitative study in three Nordic countries2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Differences in health between social groups have increased in the Nordic countries during the last decades. Therefore, the governments have initiated a number of reforms. Yet, the health gap is still increasing.

    Lack of cooperation between different governmental departments might be an explanation. Our new study shows, however, that cross-sectoral cooperation is working well. The main problem might instead be a lack of comprehensive and effective measures.

    The purpose of this qualitative study was to assess the extent of cross-sectoral cooperation at the national ministerial level, with focus on reducing health inequalities and to identify factors that might promote or hinder such cooperation.

    Abstract [en]

    Humans are exposed directly to chemicals in occupational settings and as consumers, but also indirectly due to contamination of the environment through air, food and drinking water. The report is the final product of a workshop in Oslo 2017 organised by the Nordic Exposure Group (NEXPO) in close cooperation with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). The report includes a summary of the presentations given at the workshop, a list of available resources, the discussion points raised in the groups and plenary as well as the recommendations for improvements in guidance and tools for future assessments. The recommendations particularly point out a need for extending the ECHA guidance on Humans exposed indirectly via the environment.

    Articles treated with antibacterial agents: Outline of a strategy to reduce unjustified use2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Do we need antibacterial garbage bags? A wide range of antibacterial consumer articles can be found on the Internet. Mostly there is no information on the antibacterial agents used or on their efficacy. Does this relate to bacterial resistance to antibiotics? The release of antibacterial agents from these articles creates a constant low exposure for microorganisms. This may help accelerating the development of bacterial resistance. Important research is on-going. Can we know if an article contains antibacterial agents? New rules in EU legislation apply for treated articles. When implemented, information will be given if an article is treated for antibacterial effects and the claimed effects will be substantiated. An outline for a strategy to prevent unjustified antibacterial articles was elaborated at a Nordic workshop, initiated by the Swedish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers.

    Nordic eHealth Benchmarking2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The report presents results of the Nordic eHealth Research Network, a subgroup of the eNordic Council of Ministers Health group. The network defined and collected data for altogether 49 common eHealth indicators from the Nordic Countries. Health information was quite comprehensively electronically available from other organisations in all the Nordic countries by end of 2014. Intensity of use of nationally stored data remained low except in Denmark. Sweden had best availability of the Patient portal functionalities. Patients used patient portal functionalities rarely except in Denmark. Doctors in Iceland had most positive experiences of their health information systems. Even with limitations, the current work presents a solid basis for working towards the goal of the eHealth network: generating comparable information to support development of Nordic welfare.

    Äldre och alkohol: Om utmaningarna inom äldreomsorgen i Norden2018Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens 50-70-åringar dricker mer eller oftare än personer i 40-års åldern och också de äldsta åldersgrupperna dricker mer i jämförelse med tidigare generationer. Det visar flera nordiska dryckesvaneundersökningar.

    Den växande alkoholkonsumtionen förväntas resultera i ett större antal alkoholrelaterade skador och det i sin tur innebär utmaningar för äldreomsorgen, missbruksvården, social- och hälsovården och mentalvårdstjänsterna.

    Nordens välfärdscenters nya publikation Äldre och alkohol – Om utmaningarna inom äldreomsorgen i Norden granskar på vilket sätt den nordiska äldreomsorgen har förberett sig för dessa utmaningar. I publikationen lägger vi fokus på alkohol som en av de centrala utmaningarna för såväl förebyggning av problematiskt bruk som för våra vård- och omsorgssystem i Norden

    The Nordic countries, including the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland islands, want to work together as effectively as possible to make society more accessible. The Nordic Council of Ministers has commissioned a report with proposals for areas of co-operation with regard to universal design and accessibility. The work is funded by the Council of Ministers’ Sustainable Development Strategy. Since the report was commissioned, the UN has adopted sustainability goals as part of Agenda 2030.

    The report is primarily aimed to policy makersat the Nordic level. It may also be of interest topeople who work with sustainable developmentas well as universal design and accessibility atthe national, regional or local level. Differencesin the conditions for participation and equalopportunities between women and men orgirls and boys, respectively, were also describedwhere such information exists.

    Recently the official statistics describing drug related deaths in Sweden werescrutinised. One of the most important findings was that statistical trend data ofdrug related deaths in Sweden was not comparable over time. The main reasonsbehind this being changes in coding practices and in methods used in forensicchemistry. As a result the national Swedish index was revised. It is within thatcontext the revision of the NOMESCO-index should be seen.In the process of investigating the topic at hand other related issues has emerged,such as the definition of the present index and the implementation of the same.

    Health and health care of the elderly in the Nordic Countries: From a statistical perspective2017 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic region has one of the world’s oldest populations and over the past decades, the health and care of elderly people have attracted more and more attention, as the proportion of elderly people in the population is increasing. This trend is expected to continue in the coming decades.

    The aim of this report is to provide a general statistical description of the care and treatment of elderly people in the Nordic region from the age of 65, with a focus on the 80+ age group. Another aim is to develop and improve NOMESCO’s annual statistics, and revisions to the statistics are proposed where necessary. Some of the OECD indicators are used to highlight and compare certain aspects of health care that are particularly important for elderly people.

    The report is based on available Nordic statistics collected continually by NOMESCO and other international organisations, and on statistics collected especially for this project from the national patient, cancer, prescribed drugs, and cause of death registers. The statistics show, for example, the occurrence of disease, pharmaceutical prescriptions and mortality in different age groups over 65, distinguishing between women and men, in the Nordic countries. Most of the data is from 2015. Information from national interview surveys is an important complement to the registry data, enabling health trends in the population to be monitored over time. Over several decades, the Nordic countries have developed their own surveys of living conditions, which are adapted to national circumstances. This means there are certain differences between the countries in survey methods and degree of coverage.

    What’s New About Adolescent Drinking in the Nordic Countries?: A report on Nordic studies of adolescent drinking habits in 2000-20182019Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    In all Nordic countries, minors are drinking less than before. Parents and the increased supervision of leisure time may be the root causes.

    Alcohol consumption among young Nordic people has decreased in the last ten to fifteen years. In every Nordic country, the proportion of 15-year-olds who have never tasted alcohol has increased. For example, in Sweden the proportion of 15-year-olds who have consumed alcohol has dropped 50 per cent over the last ten years and now stands at around 40 per cent.

    These trends and their possible explanations are discussed in the Nordic Welfare Centre’s new report, What’s New About Adolescent Drinking in the Nordic Countries? The report has reviewed several hundred studies on young people’s drinking habits in the Nordic region, and was designed in close collaboration with an expert group of Nordic researchers.

     Research and evaluation of specific interventions to support mental health among unaccompanied minors is sorely needed, according to Nordic Welfare Centre’s report Mental health and well-being of unaccompanied minors: A Nordic overview.

    The report surveys different aspects of health of unaccompanied minors who have arrived in the Nordic region. The focus is on mental health issues rather than physical health, as the former are usually seen as posing more of a challenge to successful integration and to the social and health services in the Nordic countries.

    This report contains three policy briefs on interventions that aims to increase equality in health. The policy briefs highlights supporting school completion, employment of individuals with severe mental health problems and increasing tobacco taxes.

    The fact that inequalities in health by socioeconomic position have substantially widened over time in the Nordic countries is something that worries Nordic public health researchers as well as politicians and policy makers. To exchange knowledge and find new ways of tackling health inequalities is therefore a priority in the Nordic cooperation.

    Denne publikation undersøger sammenhæng og synergi mellem to vigtige områder som Nordens velfærdscenter har arbejdet med igennem en årerække: velfærdsteknologi og universel design.

    Begge områder er nogle vi er gode til i Norden, og hvor potentialet ved tættere Nordisk samarbejde synes stort. Både velfærdsteknologi og universel design drives af værdier som er selve kernen i vores fælles nordiske velfærdsmodel, værdier som inklusion og lighed – både samfundsmæssigt og demokratisk.

    Publikationen vil undersøge hvordan disse to områder kan fremme og forbedre hinanden. Velfærdsteknologien er netop i disse år meget profileret, både mediemæssigt og politisk og det vil være naturligt at undersøge om, eller hvorledes, denne opmærksomhed kan gavne universel design. Dette er særligt interessant fordi de to områder har så mange fælles træk, fælles værdier og fælles slutmål – og fordi de som sagt har potentialet til at gøre hinanden bedre. Mere universel design kan give bedre teknologi og bedre implementeringsprocesser, mens mere og bedre velfærdsteknologi kan fremme ideologien bag universel design.

    Vi har fundet en række gode eksempler fra Norden til at illustrer samspillet mellem disse to områder og håber du finder dem interessant og inspirerende.

    Fokus på: Velfærdsteknologi oguddannelse af personale2016Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Välfärdsteknologi är något som berör allt fler människors vardag i takt med att många kommuner implementerar välfärdsteknologiska lösningar, både i hemmen och på institutioner. För vårdpersonalen betyder tekniken mycket.

    Tekniken erbjuder en bättre arbetsmiljö och hjälper till att effektivare arbetet men innebär samtidigt en utmaning. Välfärdsteknologi kräver nya kompetenser, tillvänjning och inlärning. Behovet av utbildning inom välfärdsteknologiområdet ökar. Detta häfte handlar om hur vi i Norden gör för att säkra att personal som arbetar med välfärdsteknologi har den kompetens de behöver.

    Levnadsförhållanden bland samer med funktionsnedsättning i Sverige2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport är den andra delrapporten i det nordiska projektet ”Samer med funktionsnedsättning” Det är också en slutrapport för den svenska kvalitativa studien ”Levnadsförhållanden bland samer med funktionsnedsättning i Sverige”.

    Syftet med denna studie är att bidra till utökad kunskap om levnadsförhållanden bland samer med funktionsnedsättning i Sverige, om de önskar någon förändring av dessa förhållanden, samt eventuella genusskillnader i dessa avseenden. Jämförelser gjordes med en norsk studie, som tillsammans med denna studie, är en del i ett nordiskt samarbetsprojekt (Bufdir, 2013; Huuva, m fl., 2014; Melbøe m. fl., 2016). Den här studien genomfördes med ett urfolks- och inifrån perspektiv, och med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer med 7 vuxna samer (FN, 2007; Bryman, 2012). De var bosatta i Sverige, i olika åldrar, och det var ungefär lika många kvinnor som män.

    Adding value to Nordic research cooperation: Recommendations for a new initiative on distribution of health2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Distribution of health is one of the challenges facing the Nordic countries and Europe. Although health and life expectancy have improved in the Nordic countries, inequalities in the distribution of health persist. The difference in mortality rates among different socio-economic groups, for instance, has grown greater. Although inequalities in the distribution of health may be viewed as a health-economic problem, this is above all an egalitarian issue related to the future development of the welfare state.

    The report gives an overview of research activities, funding and funding systems of relevance to research on health and welfare-related issues in the Nordic countries 2005-2010. Based on these findings, the report also provides policy recommendations to Nordic political circles, research funding agencies and NordForsk.

    Att jämföra för kundskap och välfärd: En jubileumsskrift för Nomesko och Nososko2019 (ed. 1)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Det socialstatistiska samarbetet i Norden har sina rötter längre bak i tiden än de mera kända myndigheterna Nordiska Rådet och Nordiska Ministerrådet. De nordiska samarbetsorganen NOSOSKO och NOMESCO har nyligen fyllt 70 respektive 50 år.

    Denna jubileumsskrift hyllar den ärorika historien av kommittéerna och de nationella experternas arbetsinsats, som har utvecklat komparativ nordisk social- och hälsostatistik genom årtionden. Samtidigt lyfter den fram visioner och riktlinjer för den modernisering av verksamheten som krävs för att föra traditionen in i den digitaliserade världen.

    Joint Nordic Registers and Biobanks: A goldmine for health and welfare research2014Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This report is based on the work of the NORIA-net on Registers and Biobanks (NRB), a Nordic working group of key actors involved in Nordic research and research policy at the national level. This NORIA-net has focused its activities on how to overcome existing obstacles that impede Nordic data sharing and has proposed ways of enhancing coordination to strengthen Nordic register-based research.

    Register-based research within the field of health and wellbeing has great potential for producing knowledge that can be used to improve the capacity of the Nordic welfare states.

    Nordic register-based research has the potential to attract international interest and to enable the Nordic research community to take the international lead in this field.

    Nordic biobanks and registers: A basis for innovative research on health and welfare2017Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The report describes a knowledge base for cross-border development of research that uses Nordic registers, biobanks and clinical studies, and offers suggestions for policy implications. Separate reports are provided on the Nordic Trial Alliance (NTA), the Nordic eScience Action Plan 2.0 and Open Access to research data from a Nordic perspective.

    This report focuses on registers and biobanks as research infrastructures for innovative research on health and welfare. The Nordic countries have very similar and unique healthcare and welfare systems. The personal identification number (PIN) for each citizen makes it possible to carry out longitudinal research and research based on a combination of health registers (e.g. healthcare data, biobanks, register on the prevalence of different diseases and causes of death) and social registers (e.g. education, employment, migration, gender representation in democratic decision-making). In contrast to the rest of the world, the Nordic countries have very long time series at the population level, considered to be a unique “goldmine” for research. The proposed longitudinal data infrastructure is particularly well suited to studying changes in the Nordic welfare model over time and for setting up a unique basis for personalised medicine/precision medicine that could guide medical practice in real time, including social and behavioural aspects.

    Sustainable Nordic Welfare: - a programme for new welfare solutions for people in the Nordic region2014Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Sustainable Nordic Welfare programme implements the Nordic prime ministers’ request to the Nordic ministers for health and social affairs to prepare tangible proposals for further development of the Nordic co-operation on health. At the Nordic prime ministers meeting on 10 June 2012, the prime ministers asked the health ministers to review, in particular, the Nordic co-operation on testing of new drugs and treatments, co-operation on highly-specialised functions, and research on health and welfare.The Sustainable Nordic Welfare programme applies for the period 2013–2015. In addition to developing and giving a tangible form to the Nordic health co-operation, the programme also involves tangible initiatives in the health and labour market areas. The two councils of ministers with main responsibility are the Council of Ministers for Education and Research (MR-U) and the Council of Ministers for Health and Social Affairs (MR-S).

    Vändpunkt - Förslag om kultur och hälsa: Rapport till Nordiska ministerrådet från Region Skåne2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [no]

    Nordisk ministerråd/kulturministrene besluttet i april 2013 å iverksette en kartlegging av kultur- og helseområdet i Norden. Region Skåne ble tildelt prosjektoppdraget, som er gjennomfört i perioden 1. februar – 10. oktober 2014. Prosjektet er samfinansiert av Nordisk ministerråd og Region Skåne. Kartleggingens formål var å øke kunnskapen om kultur- og helseområdet som en betydningsfull faktor i en holdbar nordisk velferd, og skulle omfatte praksis i alle nordiske land og Færøyene, Grønland og Åland. Oppdraget omfattet også en kartlegging av forskning i de fem nordiske landene. Det ble tidlig i arbeidet klart at kartleggingen dessuten måtte omfatte utdanning.

    Rapporten presenterer en statusbeskrivelse av kultur- og helseområdet, en analyse av behov innen området, konklusjoner samt forslag til mulige felles nordiske innsatser på området.
