Abstract [en]

The concept of nursing presence has been widely used in nursing and is a significant component of nursing practice. In order to increase our understanding of nursing presence, it needs to be studied in different contexts. In this study, a secondary analysis of interviews with 10 registered psychiatric nurses (RPN) in Sweden was conducted to explore nurses’ descriptions of presence when caring for women with post-partum psychosis (PPP). Based on the research question: ‘How do RPN describe nursing presence in the context of caring for women with PPP?’ content analysis was used to analyze the data. Three categories emerged: the use of presence to protect, the use of presence to facilitate recovery, and the use of presence for learning. The findings underscore the importance of recognizing nursing presence as a strategy to improve psychiatric nursing for the benefit of the woman and her child, and as an important part of psychiatric nursing when providing compassionate and effective nursing care to this population.
