District nurses´experiences of being able to promote health in patients with venous leg ulcers- A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

I Sverige lider ca 50 000 människor av svårläkta bensår och av dessa är ca 50 procent or-sakade av venös insufficiens. Patienter med bensår upplever ofta att de påverkas negativt fysiskt, psykiskt och socialt. Syftet med studien var att beskriva distriktssköterskors upple-velser av att kunna främja hälsa hos patienter med venösa bensår. Metoden som valdes var kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Data samlades in genom intervjuer med nio distriktssköterskor. Ur analysen framkom fyra teman; Samtala och informera för att skapa ökad förståelse, Arbeta med livsstilsrådgivning, Kunna underlätta vardagen samt Kunna se hela människan i omvårdnaden. Slutsatsen är att distriktssköterskorna blir ett stöd för pati-enterna, både under den tid de har sina sår och även genom att ge patienterna kunskap för att förebygga uppkomst av nya sår. Distriktssköterskorna upplever att de kan främja hälsa genom att flytta fokus från bensåret och istället se till hela människan. Fortsatt forskning inom området behövs ur ett patientperspektiv; hur patienter med venösa bensår upplever att distriktssköterskor kan ge stöd och främja hälsa.

Abstract [en]

Approximately 50 000 people in Sweden are suffering from slow healing leg ulcers, and about 50 per cent of these ulcers are caused by venous insufficiency. Patients with leg ul-cers often experience being adversely affected physically, psychologically and socially. The purpose of the study was to describe district nurses experiences of being able to pro-mote health in patients with venous leg ulcers. The chosen method was qualitative content analysis with inductive approach. Data was collected through interviews with nine district nurses. The analysis resulted in four themes; Communicate and inform to increase com-prehension, Work with lifestyle counselling, Being able to facilitate everyday life and Be-ing able to have an holistic approach in nursing care. The conclusion is that district nurses become a support to the patients during the time they are affected by ulcers, and also by providing the patients with knowledge of how to prevent the emergence of new ulcers. District nurses experience they are able to promote health by not only focus on the ulcer but also see the person behind the ulcer. Further research is needed from a patient perspec-tive; how patients with venous leg ulcers experience that district nurses can provide sup-port and promote health.
