School nurses experience of how to support students with ADD (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Skolsköterskan och elevhälsan har ett grundläggande uppdrag i att främja och stödja elevers hälsa för att möjliggöra goda skolresultat. Elever med koncentrationssvårigheter utan hyperaktivitet kan vara svåra att upptäcka då eleven inte stör andra men har svårt att tillgodogöra sig undervisningen. Elever med detta funktionshinder upplever varierat stöd från skolan vilket kan få negativa konsekvenser på skolresultat och självkänsla. Syfte: Att beskriva hur skolsköterskor upplever sig stödja elever med ADD.  Metod: En empirisk intervjustudie genomfördes med semistrukturerade frågor som ställdes till nio skolsköterskor verksamma inom grund- och gymnasieskolor. En kvalitativ innehållsanalys användes för analys av insamlad data. Resultat: Tre kategorier framkom ur resultatet: ”Att finnas där för eleven”, ”Att samverka i EHT” samt ”Att fungera som en informerande länk”. Ett övergripande tema framkom som ”Stöd byggt på kunskap och förståelse”   Slutsats: Skolsköterskan stödjer elev med ADD genom att arbeta hälsofrämjande med att finnas tillgänglig och vara lyhörd för elev samt lyfta behov till elevhälsoteamet. Hen arbetar dessutom som en samverkande länk mellan alla inblandade aktörer. Dock krävs det viss kunskap om ADD för att kunna vara ett stöd.

Abstract [en]

Background: The school nurse and the student health service have a fundamental mission to promote students health to enforce school performance. Students with attention deficit without hyperactivity can be difficult to detect as the pupil does not disturb others but find it difficult to follow the education. Students with these disabilities are experiencing varied support from the school which can have a negative impact on academic performance and self-esteem. Aim: To describe school nurses experience of how to support students with ADD.  Method: An empirical interview study was conducted using semi-structured questions asked to nine school nurses working in elementary and secondary schools. A qualitative content analysis was used for the analysis of the collected data. Result: Three categories emerged from the result: "To be there for the student", "To interact in the school health team", and "To act as an informative link". An overall theme emerged as "Support built on knowledge and understanding”.  Conclusion: The school nurse supports students with ADD by working health promoting through being available, be responsive to student needs and by lifting student needs to the school health team. He/she also works as a collaborative link between all participants to follow up the support over time. However it requires some knowledge about ADD to be able to provide support for these students.
