Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate and describe the experiences of the first advanced practice nurses (APNs), a new profession for Swedish health care, and of their supervising general practitioners (GPs), regarding the new role and scope of practice of APNs in primary health care. Individual interviews were conducted with the four first APNs and one focus group interview was conducted with five supervising physicians. The material was transcribed verbatim and analysed using latent content analysis. The respondents expressed confidence and trust in the new role of APNs. Some opposition to this new role from the GPs and other colleagues was observed, but was nonetheless overcome. The experiences of the APN role indicate that the new role is clearly demarcated from the role of physicians. The APNs were considered an extra resource for both the GPs and other nurses, which contributed to an increased availability of care for patients. The APN role requires an explicit definition and demarcation in relation to responsibility and roles among colleagues. Further development of the APN role presupposes the right to prescribe medication and order treatments, as well as an evaluation of patient, organizational and inter-professional perspectives on the matter.

Abstract [en]

The role of the Nurse Practitioner has successfully been developed internationally within different areas of health care. To satisfy the needs of health care of the population in Sweden, an optimal utilization of the available resources is demanded and treatment of health care problems at an appropriate level of care is required to be able to give health care with good availability, high quality and safety. A collaboration started between the Primary Health Care in the county of Skaraborg and the University of Skövde to develop the role of the district nurses in primary health care toward a more specialized function with the competence to independently make decisions and solve health care problems. The plans of this new role in the health care system gained approval at the National Board of Health and Welfare and other public authorities. St Martin´s College, Great Britain and University of Rhode Island, USA have also been partners of collaboration. The result of the work became a curriculum of a new education in Sweden – Advanced Nursing Practice in Primary Health Care.
