Abstract [sv]

Endometrios, en sjukdom med symtom som smärtor eller blödningar i samband med menstruation, börjar ofta i tonåren men diagnostiseras inte förrän flera år senare. Kvinnorna med denna diagnos beskriver ofta att de inte fått förståelse för sina problem under tonåren. Sjukdomen kan innebära stora besvär för den drabbade och följder på det fysiska, psykiska och sociala planet kan ses. Syftet var att studera hur unga kvinnor med endometriossymtom upplevde skolsköterskans stöd under högstadie- och gymnasietiden, för att kunna påverka deras livskvalitet. Via Svenska endometriosföreningens ungdomssektion i Sverige gjordes en kvantitativ undersökning med kvalitativt inslag. Ett frågeformulär skickades ut till föreningens 59 medlemmar, 24 kvinnor svarade. Resultatet visade att några få kvinnor var nöjda med den hjälp de fått under skoltiden men de flesta kvinnorna uttryckte att de saknade kunskap, stöd och förståelse från skolsköterskan vilket ibland gav ett icke tillfredsställande bemötande. Det framkom även i studien att förståelse och kunskaper saknades i vissa fall även hos ungdomsmottagningar och läkare. Tillgängligheten av skolsköterskan på de olika skolorna varierade. Mer resurser bör läggas på kunskaper både hos skolsköterskor och de unga kvinnorna själva för att förbättra livskvaliteten hos de unga kvinnorna.

Abstract [en]

Endometriosis, a disease that gives symptoms like dysmenorrhea or abnormal bleedings during menstruation, often appears during the early adolescent and several years passes from onset of the symptoms to the point of diagnosis. The women with this diagnose often describes the feeling of not being understood, even during their adolescence. The disease may appear with troubles for the women that gives effects upon physical, mental and social impact which can be seen. The aim was to investigate what kind of support the women had got from there school nurse during junior high school and high school to affect the quality of life. A method of a quantitative study with qualitative influences was used. The respondents were found through the Swedish Endometriosis Associations youth section. A questionnaire was sent out to 59 women and 24 responded. The result showed that few of the women were satisfied with the support they received during their time in school. Almost all the women expressed that there was a lack of knowledge, support and understanding from the school nurse. Consequently, the women were not satisfied with the health care encounter. Lack of understanding and knowledge was found even at social advice and guidance centres for young people and physicians. The availability of the school nurses varied between different schools. The resources should be used to give knowledge to school nurses and the adolescents to improve the adolescents quality of life.
