In cold print: How Norwegian newspapers portray people with dementia (English)
Abstract [no]

Bakgrunn: Demens er en sykdom som vil berøre mange av oss i løpet av livet. Det er naturlig at vår reaksjon på en sykdom vil preges av den kunnskapen vi har om sykdommen fra tidligere. Mange vil oppsøke mer kunnskap om den aktuelle sykdommen og massemedia er da en av de kildene som benyttes for innhenting av informasjon. I Norden er avisene et av de viktige mediene som skaper og sprer kunnskap som sendes ut til allmennheten.

 

Hensikten med studien er å få dypere kunnskap om hvordan personer med demens fremstilles i de norske avisene.

 

Metode: Modifisert grounded theory har blitt benyttet til å analysere norske avisartikler fra 2010. 

 

Resultat: Personer med demens fremstiller i avisene som en homogen gruppe.

 

Konklusjon: Fremstillingen i avisene bidrar til at personer med demens fremstår som stereotype og stigma relatert til demens kan opprettholdes. Personer med demens bør i større grad bli presentert med sine individuelle forskjeller og i ulike faser av demenssykdommen om man skal oppnå et mer demensvennlig samfunn.

Abstract [en]

Background: Dementia is a disease that will affect many of us during our lives. Our knowledge about a disease often reflects our response to it. Mass media is one resource that many people will use as they seek more information about dementia. In Nordic countries, newspapers are among the important mass media resources that create and spread information to the population.  

 

Aim: This study aimed to gain deeper knowledge about how Norwegian newspapers present people with dementia.

 

Method: Modified grounded theory was used to analyze Norwegian newspaper articles published during 2010.

 

Results: Norwegian newspapers present people with dementia as a homogeneous group.

 

Conclusion: Articles in Norwegian newspapers label people with dementia as stereotypes, thus sustaining the stigma already related to this group. There is a need for a broader presentation of people with dementia, one that describes individual differences and the different phases of the disease to achieve a more dementia-friendly society.
