Competencies of specialist nurses in swedish ambulance care : A summative content analysis of documents describing comeptencies (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Kompetensen i ambulansteamet i Sverige skiljer sig åt mellan de olika landstingen. Vissa har grundutbildad sjuksköterska som högsta medicinska kompetens i ambulansen, andra landsting har krav på en specialistsjuksköterska i ambulanserna. Det finns dock inga riktlinjer på vilken specialistutbildning som är önskvärd inom ambulanssjukvården trots att det finns en utbildning till specialistsjuksköterska med inriktning mot ambulanssjukvård.

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva formella kompetensområden för specialistsjuksköterskor som är behöriga att arbeta inom ambulanssjukvård i Sverige.

Metod: En summativ innehållsanalys av kompetensbeskrivningar för specialistsjuksköterskor.

Resultat: Tolv kompetensbeskrivningar analyserades vilka genererade fyra huvudkategorier vardera. Antal underkategorier och nyckelord varierade. Medicinsk kompetens blev huvudkategori i elva av tolv kompetensbeskrivningar och störst i sju kompetensbeskrivningar. Resultatet visade även att kompetensområdena i de olika kompetensbeskrivningarna till största delen var inriktade mot de vårdområde där de är avsedda att utövas. 

Slutsats: De teoretiska formella kompetensområdena skiljer sig mellan de olika kompetensbeskrivningarna. Avsaknad av teoretisk kunskap avsedd för mångfalden av patienter i den prehospitala miljön skulle kunna påverka patientsäkerheten. 

Abstract [en]

Background: The competence of the personal in the ambulance team differ between the county councils. In some counties it has to be a specialist nurse that has the medical responsibility while in other counties it is a registered nurse that has that position. Today there are no guidelines for what specialist education the specialist nurse working within the ambulance care should have, even though there is an education for specialist ambulance nurse.

Aim: The aim of this study was to explore the formal competencies of the different specialist nurses that works in ambulance care in Sweden. 

Method: A summative content analysis of the documents describing the competencies for the difference specialist nurses was made. 

Results: Twelve documents describing the competencies were analyzed which all gave four main categories. Number of subcategories and keywords varied. Medical knowledge was identified as a main category in eleven of twelve documents describing the competencies and was the biggest in seven out of  twelve documents describing the competencies. The result also showed that the competencies described in the documents mainly focused on the care area where they are meant to be practiced. 

Conclusion:  The theoretical formal competencies differ between the documents describing the competencies for specialist nurses. Lack of theoretical knowledge designed for the variation of patient in prehospital care could influence patient safety.
