Abstract [en]

To constantly work with quality improvement is important to maintain a high standard of care. Tanzania is one of many countries facing challenges within the health sector due to constrained resources. Exploring the nurses’ perspective of working with quality improvement  gives a glimpse of the current situation in the Tanzanian health sector. The purpose of this study is to analyse the nurses’ experiences of working with quality improvement. For this study interviews have been conducted and then analysed through a qualitative content inductive analysis.

The result showed the nurses’ experiences of obstacles and possibilities when developing the quality of care. Main categories were lack of economy, resources and staff, feeling empowered and healthy team dynamics among colleagues. During the study the authors encountered several obstacles that limited the study. An ethical approval was required, thus only six participants partook in this study. Lack of economy resulted in the biggest obstacle towards improvement as this limited investing in possible assets. The effects of good collaboration between colleagues are shown in many studies to be beneficial for the working atmosphere, which was also found in this study.
