    The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on social isolation and loneliness: A Nordic research review2023Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The COVID-19 pandemic has in many ways challenged the health and well-being of people, and more widely, the welfare systems in the Nordic countries. Due to regulations and lockdowns, many people have experienced social isolation, and certain vulnerable groups – such as older adults and those with disabilities – have been hit especially hard. As loneliness has implications for people’s long-term mental and physical health, the consequences of the pandemic are significant for health and social care as a whole.

    This literature review describes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on loneliness and social isolation among younger and older adults living in the Nordic countries, with and without disabilities, and in different situations.

    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.

    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.

    School achievement and health development in the Nordic countries: Knowledge gaps and concerns about school-age children2021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Education plays a particularly important role in explaining health outcomes in the Nordic countries. Our report aims to highlight knowledge gaps and describe the need for research to better understand the connections between education, health, and equality.

    The report School achievement and health development in the Nordic countries – Knowledge gaps and concerns about school-age children discusses a series of concerns regarding methodology, theoretical perspective, policy aspects, and ethical and political aspects.

    According to the report educational practice should be researched to uncover the mechanism behind gender-based and socio-economic inequalities in school achievement. This would include longitudinal studies over many years.

    The report states that school is a working environment for the children, teachers, and other school staff. Therefore, it would be important to close the knowledge gap on breaks, physical activity, and length of lessons in relation to school achievement and health development among school-age girls and boys.

    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.

    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.

    Health literacy in the Nordic countries: Not only a determinant of health, but also a tool for health promotion2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Many determinants help to define our health. One of these is health literacy, which also serves as a mediating and moderating factor of health. All in all, health literacy is an important concept to consider in matters of health and, in particular, the health of all people.

    With this report, the Nordic Welfare Centre wishes to introduce the concept of health literacy, its trajectory over time, and how the concept fits into the health structure today. The report will also view health literacy in relation to the field of integration.

    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.

    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

    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.

    While the Nordic countries have long been champions of equality, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a new light on societal structural injustices inherent in our societies. The pandemic thus reveals and reminds us about the serious effects of segregation and unequal societies, and necessitates a closer look at the potential injustice involved. This study aims to identify structural barriers involved in following recommendations from Public Health Authorities during the pandemic, especially in socio-economically vulnerable, low-income districts. Learning about these circumstances will help Nordic societies be better prepared for future challenges and crises

    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.

    Reducing social isolation and loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic: Examples of promising practice from the Nordic countries2023Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The COVID-19 pandemic has in many ways challenged the health and well-being of people, and more widely, the welfare systems in the Nordic countries. Due to regulations and lockdowns, many people have experienced social isolation, and certain vulnerable groups – such as older adults and those with disabilities – have been hit especially hard.

    As loneliness has implications for people’s long-term mental and physical health, the consequences of the pandemic are significant for health and social care as a whole.

    This report presents cases of what was done in the Nordic region to alleviate loneliness during the pandemic. The material for this report was collected between June and September 2022. The five Nordic examples show that there are many ways to tackle social isolation and loneliness.

    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.

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).

    The Nordic Adaptation of Classification of OccupationallyRelated Disorders (Diseases and Symptoms) to ICD-102000Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This report is a summary of a Nordic co-operative project called “The Nordic Adaptation ofClassification of Occupationally Related Disorders (diseases and symptoms) to ICD-10”,financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers (Nordisk Ministerråd) and completed 1996 to2000.The aim of the project was to provide a “Nordic list of occupational disorders” with advice onhow to code them in accordance with the WHO International Statistical Classification ofDiseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) version 10. Coding of occupational disorders isnot always self-evident within ICD-10. This holds especially true for central nervous systemdisorders caused by occupational exposure and for some groups of not well-specifiedconditions, which in the Nordic countries are claimed, but not yet proven, to be caused byoccupational exposures. By giving advise on how to “modify and adapt” these conditions tothe ICD-10 system, we hope – if the advises are accepted – to facilitate later comparisons ofNordic data on occupational disorders.We also had a hope to be able to mark out disorders from occupational and environmentalexposures, to bring attention to the potential for their prevention, within the ICD-10. This canonly be done indirectly by adding the codes for occupational (Y96) or environmental (Y97)exposure to the codes for disorders. This can be done within the ICD-10, but we havediscovered that this possibility can be hampered by the design of local hospitals’ ICD-10registration systems, which may not allow the possibility to add other codes to the codes fordisorders.In addition the ICD-10 codes for exposure (chapter T) are insufficient for coding forexposures in the Nordic occupational- and environmental clinics. Thus a satisfactory codingsystem for exposures must be created outside the frames of ICD-10.

    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.
