Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Distriktssköterskors arbete har förändrats över tid. Patienter är idag ofta välinformerade om sin hälsa och medvetna om att de kan påverka sin hälsa. I dagens samhälle är internet en vanlig källa till hälsoinformation, som har blivit allt mer tillgänglig. Det är viktigt att patienten känner delaktighet i sin egen vård.  Vårdgivaren har ett ansvar att leda patienten till tillförlitliga informationskällor. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att belysa distriktssköterskors erfarenheter av att patienter söker hälsoinformation på internet och hur det påverkar deras arbete. Metod: En kvalitativ metod har använts. Åtta intervjuer har genomförts med distriktssköterskor. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framträdde tre huvudteman som benämns; Vikten av att veta och förstå, Mötets betydelse för patienter, Distriktssköterskors erfarenhet och ny kunskap. Till dessa teman finns nio olika underteman. Konklusion: Resultatet av denna studie kan bidra till en ökad medvetenhet om att patienter söker hälsoinformation på internet och hur det påverkar distriktssköterskors arbete. Distriktssköterskor får förhålla sig till patienters kunskap som kan se mycket olika ut. Patienters kunskap ställer krav på distriktssköterskorna som får anpassa besöket och vården utifrån denna kunskap samt vägleda patienter rätt.
