Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Trauma är ett världsomfattande problem. I Sverige avlider 4500 personer årligen av traumarelaterade skador. Lennquist (2007) menar att denna siffra kan minskas vid optimerad organisation och förhöjd/förbättrad kompetens inom traumavård. Syfte: Att undersöka operationssjuksköterskors självskattade kompetens inom traumavård utifrån Landstinget Västmanlands kompetensutvecklings modell, baserad på Benners kompetens- och utvecklingsstadier. Metod: Deskriptiv analys av kvantitativ data. Operationssjuksköterskor på en operationsavdelning i Sverige svarade på ett frågeformulär. Frågorna var utvecklade utifrån Landstinget Västmanlands kompetensutvecklings modell och Svensk sjuksköterskeförenings sex kärnkompetenser. Resultat: Vid studiens genomförande arbetade 36 operationssjuksköterskor vid operationsavdelningen, 15 operationssjuksköterskor deltog. Nio operationssjuksköterskor (n=15) befann sig på "expertnivå" men utförde arbetsuppgifter utifrån en lägre kompetensnivå. Majoriteten av operationssjuksköterskorna svarade "stämmer helt" på fyra av svensk sjuksköterskeförenings sex kärnkompetenser och "stämmer delvis" på resterande två. Alla deltagande hade deltagit i någon form av traumautbildning. Slutsats: Det finns behov av ökad struktur och klarare riktlinjer kring operationssjuksköterskans kompetensutveckling eftersom experterna utför arbetsuppgifter utifrån en lägre kompetensnivå. Operationssjuksköterskorna hade goda kunskaper inom fyra av de sex kärnkompetenserna men behövde förbättra sin kunskap inom två områden. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Trauma is a worldwide problem. In Sweden 4500 people die annually of trauma-related injuries. Lennquist (2007) argue/mean that optimized organization and improved competence in trauma care could decrease the number of deaths due to trauma. Aim: To investigate operating nurses' own view of their competence in trauma care in relation to Landstinget Västmanland's model for competence, based on Benner's stages of clinical competence. Method: Descriptive analysis of quantitative data. Operating nurses working in a operative department were given questionnaires to respond to. The questions were based on Landstinget Västmanlands stages of competence and The Swedish Nurses Association's six core competencies. Results: Thirty-six operating nurses worked at the department during the week the questionnaires were distributed and fifteen chose to participate. Nine operating nurses (n=15) were classified as "experts", but performed duties at a lower competency level. The majority of the operating nurses responded "agree completely" to four of the six core competencies and "partly true" on the remaining two. All participants had participated in some kind of trauma education. Conclusion: There is a need for greater structure and better guidelines regarding operating nurses' competence development since experts preformed their duties at a lower competency level. Operating nurses had good knowledge in four of the six core competencies but needed to improve their knowledge in two areas.
