    Wittgensteinsk etik

    Get PDF
    Artiklen frembringer et overblik over Ludwig Wittgensteins etikopfattelse, således som den forankres i Tractatus og efterfølgende viser sig at være kompatibel med nogle centrale tanker i senfilosofien. Hermed kan der opereres med at begreb om ’wittgensteinsk etik’, der er kendetegnet ved en afvisning af filosofien som problemløser i forbindelse med etiske problemer. Etik viser og udfolder sig derimod i det konkrete menneskeliv

    What is wrong with non-respondents? Alcohol-, drug- and smoking related mortality and morbidity in a 12-year follow up study of respondents and non-respondents in the Danish Health and Morbidity Survey

    Aim: Response rates in health surveys have diminished over the last two decades, making it difficult to obtain reliable information on health and health-related risk factors in different population groups. This study compared cause-specific mortality and morbidity among survey respondents and different types of non-respondents to estimate alcohol-, drug- and smoking related mortality and morbidity among non-respondents. Design: Prospective follow-up study of respondents and non-respondents in two cross-sectional health surveys. Setting: Denmark. Participants: A total sample of 39,540 Danish citizens aged 16 or older. Measurements: Register-based information on cause-specific mortality and morbidity at the individual level was obtained for respondents (n=28,072) and different types of non-respondents (refusals n=8,954; illness/disabled n=731, uncontactable n=1,593). Cox proportional hazards models were used to examine differences in alcohol-, drug- and smoking-related mortality and morbidity, respectively, in a 12 year follow-up period. Findings: Overall, non-response was associated with a significantly increased hazard ratio of 1.56 (95% CI: 1.36–1.78) for alcohol-related morbidity, 1.88 (95% CI: 1.38-2.57) for alcohol-related mortality, 1.55 (95% CI: 1.27–1.88) for drug-related morbidity, 3.04 (95% CI: 1.57–5.89) for drug-related mortality and 1.15 (95% CI: 1.03–1.29) for smoking-related morbidity. The hazard ratio for smoking-related mortality also tended to be higher among non-respondents compared with respondents although no significant association was evident (HR: 1.14; 95% CI: 0.95-1.36). Uncontactable and ill/disabled non-respondents generally had a higher hazard ratio of alcohol-, drug- and smoking related mortality and morbidity compared with refusal non-respondents. Conclusion: Health survey non-respondents in Denmark have an increased hazard ratio of alcohol-, drug-, and smoking-related mortality and morbidity compared with respondents, which may indicate more unfavourable health behaviours among non-respondents

    CareSam:A Cross-border Collaboration Contesting notions of elderly Care

    This article presents findings and discussions generated on the basis of the Danish-Swedish development project CareSam. The article will on the one hand focus on how work in groups consisting of representatives from different levels in the elderly care sector at one time served as learning spaces and cultural encounters in which established notions of older people and elderly care were challenged and discussed. Inspired by action research these challenges were brought forth through discussions of and through insight in practical experiences. On the other hand it will focus on the tendencies to narrow the diversity of perceptions of elderly people and their care, which were also seen in the project and led to stories in which the meaningfulness of care work were honored. Departing from the interviews presented in the CareSam film and parts of the empirical material produced in Connection to the work in the project-groups this paper will ask whether it is possible to represent care work for elderly people with all the ambiguities it holds: How can we as researchers represent both meaningfulness and straining dimensions of care work? Can we avoid either supporting Florence Nightingale-ideals or cementing negative cultural perceptions of help-needing elderly and the people who support them in everyday life? In answering these questions and thereby reflecting on our own work process we apply a caring, a learning and a political perspective. Hereby the article wishes to formulate a methodological point: The CareSam cross sector collaboration produced important experience near knowledge, but also lead to present somewhat one-sided understandings of elderly care. Applying theoretical perspectives to analyze the empirical material and the working process, nuances the understanding and makes it possible to maintain immediately conflicting dimensions in this kind of work

    Numerous families have discovered that trying to live with pediatric cancer demands all the energy they can produce. Many studies have been conducted to ascertain the feelings and needs of families in this crisis however, there is a paucity of research focusing on the fathers feelings and the father\u27s needs. The purpose of this study was to explore the fathers\u27 concerns, needs and coping strategies as they are experiencing pediatric cancer. A convenience sampling (n = 48) of fathers involved in cancer treatment for their child was obtained from the records of the Candelighters Group of America the Las Vegas, Nevada Chapter. The top concerns were regarding the children\u27s current and future wellbeing. The main questions the fathers needed answered were questions about the current and future development of their children. The number one most frequently utilized, as well as the most helpful coping strategy was prayer. An increase in yearly income was related to seeking more information and reading more about the problem. Also, an increased frequency in church attendance was related to a decreased use of looking for options as a way to cope
