The family perspective at BVC : A qualitative study of BVC nurses experiences in their work on children's mental health and development (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie utforskar BVC-sköterskors upplevelse av att använda familjeperspektivet för att belysa barns psykiska hälsa och utveckling. Frågans relevans bottnar i att barnhälsovården i Sverige har en unik möjlighet och utmaning när det gäller både ett preventivt och behandlande arbete med familjer.

Undersökningen bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med fem barnsjuksköterskor från tre olika barnavårdscentraler i Stockholm. Insamlad data bearbetades med tematisk analys. Resultaten visar på flera utmaningar som uppstår i arbetet med att möta frågor som rör familjeperspektivet. Det handlar både om upplevelser av bristande kompetens, till en frustration över att inte veta vart man ska vända sig med familjerna när man identifierat brister och ex.vis psykisk ohälsa. Resultaten visar även på betydelsen av att verka i dessa fält, trots svårigheterna, inte minst ur utvecklingspsykologiska aspekter. Resultaten är i linje med teori och aktuell forskning och väcker frågor kring hur väl barnhälsovårdens uppdrag uppfylls.

Abstract [en]

This study explores the BVC nurses' experience of using the family perspective to highlight children's mental health and development. The relevance stems from the child health care in Sweden has a unique opportunity and challenge in terms of both preventive and therapeutic work with families.

The study is based on qualitative interviews with five childcare nurses from three different child healthcare centers in Stockholm. The collected data was processed with thematic analysis. The results show several challenges that arise in the work of meeting family-related issues. It is both experiences of lack of skills, a frustration about not knowing where to turn with families when identifying deficiencies in for example mental health. The results also show the importance of working in these fields, despite the difficulties, not least from developmental psychological aspects. The results are in line with theory and current research and raise questions about how well the child health care mission is fulfilled.
