A hidden profession : Nurses perception of operating theatre nursing (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Både nationellt och internationellt råder idag en brist på operationssjuksköterskor vilket leder till ökade väntetider till operation och ett lidande för patienten. Bristen på operationssjuksköterskor gör det angeläget att undersöka synen på yrket och om yrket behöver synliggöras för att eventuellt öka intresset för specialisering. Syfte: Syftet är att undersöka sjuksköterskors uppfattning om operationssjuksköterskans profession. Metod: Deskriptiv tvärsnittsstudie med kvantitativ ansats med kvalitativa inslag baserad på webbenkät med öppna och slutna svarsalternativ. Resultat: Deltagarnas uppfattning är att de har god kunskap om operationssjuksköterskans profession. Yrket anses vara viktigt, fysiskt krävande och dolt för sjuksköterskor utanför operationsavdelningen. Konklusion: Operationssjuksköterskan anses vara viktig för patientsäkerheten och arbetar i nära samarbete med läkare och övriga vårdteam. Trots att sjuksköterskor anser att de har kunskap om yrkesrollen anses yrket som okänt och det finns behov av att ytterligare synliggöra operationssjuksköterskeyrket.

The lack of operating theater nurses makes it important to examine how the profession is seen and if it needs to be illuminated to make it more interesting. Purpose: The purpose was to examine nurses' perceptions of the operation theatre nursing profession. Method: A descriptive cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach containing qualitative elements based on web survey with open and closed response options. Result: Nurses consider the knowledge of the operating nursing profession to be satisfactorily. The profession is considered as important, physical demanding and unknown for nurses outside the operating ward. Conclusion: The operating theater nurse is considered as important for the patient safety and is an important part of the surgical team. Despite that nurses consider themselves having knowledge of the profession the operating theater nurse is considered a hidden profession and there is a need to further make the profession visible.
