Intergenerational solidarity in the time of coronavirus pandemia
Vondrová, Vanesa ; Jeřábek, Hynek (advisor) ; Remr, Jiří (referee)
The diploma thesis examines the changes in intergenerational solidarity and the form of care provided by informal caregivers to elderly individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic. The rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 was captured through a planned but ultimately unrealized longitudinal panel design, which would have allowed capturing its dynamic nature. The method of data collection for the research was a questionnaire survey. In-depth interviews were conducted with a selected sample of participants, including caregivers and elderly recipients of care. These interviews took the form of semi-structured interviews, allowing flexibility in exploring relevant aspects. The collected qualitative data were analysed using content analysis. Despite the unrealized plan, the thesis provides a comprehensive view of the changing intergenerational solidarity during the pandemic. Findings revealed that the pandemic influenced intergenerational solidarity among caregivers and elderly recipients. Shared perceptions and concerns led to higher levels of solidarity. Isolation did not necessarily weaken solidarity, as many families used digital technologies to maintain connections and support. Additionally, intensive care contributed to higher intergenerational solidarity and engagement. Respondents...

How hospice workers perceive death and dying
Voldřichová, Johana ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Vokřálová, Eliška (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the topic of how hospice care workers perceive and talk about death and dying. Much of the work that discusses this topic views it from the perspective of patients or relatives or loved ones. This paper aims to describe how hospice care workers work with the everyday presence of death. In the first part, the thesis discusses theoretical concepts that are applicable to hospice care and hospice work. Primarily, the thesis focuses on the topics of coping with death, tabooing death, and working with the body. It is qualitative research based on key informant techniques. Purposeful sampling was used to obtain informants. Ten semi- structured in-depth interviews were conducted with hospice and palliative care workers. In the practical part, the findings from the interviews obtained in a hospice in the Central Bohemia region are elaborated. Thematic analysis helped me to identify three main themes, which are, coping, working with the body and the forms and concepts of death. The thesis attempts to develop the existing research existing on this topic. It is important to understand how workers work with death and how they perceive it due to how stressful this work is, but also because the current society is aging and there will be a need for more workers and overall hospice care.
A Gratification Perspective of Why People Buy Herbal Tea and What do They Want from it: A Content Analysis of Tea Products' Online Reviews
Yang, Wenyu ; Jeřábek, Hynek (advisor) ; Remr, Jiří (referee)
In the three years since the spread of COVID-19, herbal medicine as a potential treatment has been presented increasingly frequently. These conversations fueled an already robust industry for herbal supplements. People can use herbal remedies without a prescription or referral from a doctor. However, several adverse consequences have been reported as a result of the unrestricted use of herbal remedies. Existing research on herbal remedies consists primarily of pharmacological and anthropological investigations; social science study on the topic is limited. This thesis questioned the social and psychological motivations behind the individuals purchase of herbal teas. The analysis of online herbal tea reviews revealed three levels of herbal tea consumption reasons: flavour and commodity attributes at the commodity level, herbal medicine effects and ingredients at the instrumental level, and personal ritual activity and lifestyle choices at the symbolic level. The thesis identifies three distinct groups of herbal tea drinkers whose consumption patterns and motivations differ dramatically. These results contribute to the public's comprehension of herbal remedies and to the government's management of this expanding market.

Homes for the elderly during pandemic covid-19
Křenek, Jan ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Hasmanová Marhánková, Jaroslava (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the topic of homes for the elderly during the covid-19 pandemic. Specifically, it deals with the period of time from year 2020 until the first quarter of the year 2022, where in said period the homes for the elderly were forced to adapt to the new situation of the covid-19 pandemic. The thesis aims to confront adapted government regulations with practice inside specific home for the elderly and map their influence on said institution. To achieve this, the author collected information regarding homes for the elderly during pandemic, information regarding measures existing inside the homes and their influence on homes for the elderly. Author uses the collection of information to study the influence of said regulations and practice inside specific home. Using the collected information, author then shows all relevant measures and their effect on particular home for the elderly, the practice of the home when implementing these measures and the evaluation of the regulations by the staff. To gather all the information needed, author used multiple sources of literature, foreign sources, legislatives, annual reports, and interviews carried out inside the home for the elderly Sue Ryder. Apart from the contrast, the thesis also maps individual government regulations relevant to...
Using mixed modes to address nonresponse bias in surveys
Röschová, Michaela ; Hamplová, Dana (advisor) ; Remr, Jiří (referee) ; Hruška, Lubor (referee)
Declining response affecting population surveys in the past decades led to a shift of focus from response rate to nonresponse bias. From a theoretical perspective on nonresponse, reducing nonresponse bias requires altering the differential response propensities of sampled units through the application of unequal intensity or type of effort across the units. At the same time, it is acknowledged that implementing nonresponse bias reduction strategies is more challenging than focusing solely on response maximisation because these two may constitute conflicting objectives, especially in the context of increasing fieldwork costs. This dissertation aims to contribute to the discussion on strategies to address nonresponse bias in the conditions of decreasing response rates and under less favourable survey conditions in general. It explores the barriers to a more widespread application of nonresponse bias strategies and formulates criteria for a more feasible nonresponse bias strategy that would be accessible to a wider range of survey entities. It argues that mixed methods are particularly suitable for offering a solution. The empirical part assesses whether the application of a CAWI conversion attempt in a random probability face-to-face survey may serve as a feasible nonresponse bias reduction strategy....
Resocialization of convicts, as a transition from penitentiary to post-penitentiary care
Rohanová, Kateřina ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Hejzlarová, Eva (referee)
The thesis deals with the resocialization and social inclusion of persons after serving a prison sentence and the possibilities of assistance from the penitentiary and post- penitentiary care system. The aim of the thesis was to identify the needs of persons concerning social inclusion after release from prison, to further reflect the identified needs with the possibilities of the penitentiary and post-penitentiary care system and to offer alternatives to optimize the current care system. The research part of the thesis was conducted by qualitative research. Data was collected using the method of semi-structured interviews with respondents from among women serving sentence and workers from penitentiary and post-penitentiary care. A thematic analysis method using open coding was chosen to analyse the data. A needs assessment was used to identify needs in six specified dimensions of social inclusion after serving a prison sentence. The thesis was able to identify the needs of people in their integration after incarceration. In particular, the needs in the dimensions of financial security and employment, housing and interaction and family relationships emerged a s key to inclusion. While the need to have a social background appeared as the most important for meeting needs across the dimensions. In...
Homes for the elderly during pandemic covid-19
Křenek, Jan ; Remr, Jiří (advisor) ; Hasmanová Marhánková, Jaroslava (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the topic of homes for the elderly during the covid-19 pandemic. Specifically, it deals with the period of time from year 2020 untill the first quarter of the year 2022, where in said period the homes for the elderly were forced to adapt to the new situation of the covid-19 pandemic. The thesis aims to map the situation of the homes for the elderly in the covid-19 pandemic, with focus on Czech lands, and then create a strategy for dealing with pandemic inside the homes for the elderly. To achieve this, the author collected information regarding measures existing inside the homes, also focusing on their relevancy and efficiency, then the said information was utilised to evaluate existing measures. From the collection of information author creates a strategy, which could be used to combat future pandemics of either similar or same types and this strategy would then help homes for the elderly to overcome said situations better. To gather all the information needed, author used multiple sources of literature, foreign sources, legislatives, annual reports, and interviews carried out inside the home for the elderly Sue Ryder. The thesis, aside from the aforementioned strategy, also maps all government regulations relevant for the homes for the elderly during the pandemic,...
