Abstract [en]

Aim: To obtain an understanding of operating theatre nurses' experiences of responsibility for patient care and safety in perioperative practice. Design: A hermeneutic design were used. Method: Data were collected during 2012 from 15 operating theatre nurses who participated in individual interviews. The text was analyzed by hermeneutical text interpretation. Findings: The texts revealed two main themes: A formal external responsibility and personal ethical value. Responsibility that the patient was not exposed to risks, protecting the patient's body, systematically planning and organizing work in the surgical team. The personal ethical value meant confirming the patient as a person, caring for the patient and preserving the patient's dignity. A new understanding emerged that the operating theatre nurse always have the patient in mind.

The operating theatre nurses' caring and competence within perioperative nursing :
Abstract [en]

The overall aim was to describe and deepen the understanding of what operating theatre nurses experience as caring and responsibility as well as ethical problems in perioperative practice. The aim was also to investigate how operating theatre nurses perceive clinical competence in perioperative nursing.

Methods: This research has a hermeneutic design. Qualitative, quantitative and mixed method was used. In the study (I), data were collected through interviews and analysed with phenomenographic method. In studies (II-III) the interview texts from the study (I) was reused. Secondary analysis were performed with hermeneutic text interpretation. In the study (IV), data were collected through a modified questionnaire PROFFSNurse SAS I, which was supplemented with an open question. These data were analysed using statistics and qualitative conventional content analysis.

Results: Operating theatre nurses have the will to meet the patient, be involved and created continuity in the perioperative nursing process (I). Operating theatre nurses experience that they have a formal responsibility to ensure that patients are not at risk and maintain patient integrity and dignity based on personal ethical values (II). Ethical problems and value conflicts can occur if routines and habits prevent operating theatre nurses from caring and when their clinical competence are not utilized in perioperative practice (III). The operating theatre nurses’ self-assessment of clinical competence showed that academic degree, professional experience and interprofessional learning were important for the development of clinical competence. On the other hand, existing routines and habits, as well as inadequate resources, were an obstacle (IV).

Conclusion: Perioperative nursing care includes a nursing process and the operating theatre nurses have responsibility based on ethical values. When the operating theatre nurses are prevented from being a caregiver or that their clinical competence is not utilized, stress of conscience can be caused. Important for the development of clinical competence is an academic degree, professional experience and interprofessional learning.

Abstract [sv]

Operationssjuksköterskans vårdande omfattar patientens pre-, intra- och postoperativ vård. Det perioperativa vårdarbetet ställer krav på att kunna integrera vårdandet med medicinsk teknik för att skapa en god och säker vård i en högteknologisk miljö. 

Genom att ge tid och möjlighet för operationssjuksköterskorna att möta patienter före, under och efter operationen kan deras vårdande bli till för patienten som skall genomgå en operation. Det finns en vilja att vara delaktiga och skapa kontinuitet i den perioperativa vårdprocessen. I det perioperativa vårdarbete tar de ansvar för att skydda patienten i en utsatt och sårbar situation och utifrån inre personliga etiska värderingar upprätthålls integritet och värdighet. Etiska problem uppstår i det perioperativa vårdarbete när vården styrs av rutiner och vanor som kan skapa värdekonflikter vilket hindrar operationssjuksköterskorna från att vara vårdande.

När operationssköterskorna självskattat sin kompetens framkom att akademisk examen och lång yrkeserfarenhet är av betydelse för att kunna hantera komplexa situationer och ta ansvar för de beslut som fattas i vårdandet av patienten.  Vetenskaplig kunskap, medicinsk teknik, omvårdnad/vårdande och interprofessionellt utveckling av lärande är av betydelse för klinisk kompetens.

Utifrån denna avhandlings resultat framkom ny fördjupad förståelse för vad operationssjuksköterskorna uppfattar som att vara en professionell vårdande operationssjuksköterska och behov av utveckling av klinisk kompetens.
