Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka unga kvinnors inställning till hur de kan förebygga livmoderhalscancer. Vidare var syftet att undersöka vad de unga kvinnorna har för åsikter om information kring livmoderhalscancer. 

Metod: Explorativ kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade intervjuer användes. Kvinnor i åldern 16-18 år rekryterades på Ungdomshälsan i Uppsala med ett medvetet urval. Totalt genomfördes 20 intervjuer. Innehållsanalys med manifest ansats användes för att analysera data. 

Resultat: Kvinnornas inställning till preventionsarbetet baserades på deras kunskap. Majoriteten av kvinnorna hade hört talas om ”ett vaccin” och de flesta hade en positiv inställning till det. De hade även en positiv inställning till kondom men det var ett flertal som inflikade att de inte trodde att den användes i praktiken. Den främsta anledningen till att unga kvinnor har kunskaper om livmoderhalscancer är på grund av informationen kring HPV vaccinet. Kvinnorna har främst erhållit informationen om vaccinet från media, mamma och kompisar. De önskade att skolan skulle ta ett större ansvar att ge information. 

Slutsats: De unga kvinnorna som ingår i denna studie var positiva till att förebygga livmoderhalscancer. De anser att de inte har fått tillräckligt med information om livmoderhalscancer och att den kan förbättras. 

Abstract [en]

Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate young women´s attitudes to cervical cancer prevention. The aim was also to examine the young women´s opinions of information about cervical cancer. 

Method: Explorative qualitative study using semi-structured interviews were used. Women aged 16-18 years were recruited at Youth Clinic in Uppsala and 20 interviews were performed. Conscious selection was used. Manifest content analysis was used to analyze data. 

Results: Women's attitudes to prevention were based on their knowledge. The majority of women had heard of "a vaccine" and most had a positive attitude towards it. The majority of participants had a positive attitude towards condom but a number of informants mentioned that they did not believe that it was used in practice. The main reason that young women have knowledge of cervical cancer is due to the HPV vaccine. Women are primarily received information about the vaccine from the media, mother and friends. They wanted the school to take more responsibility to provide information. 

Conclusion: The participants in this study were positive to prevention methods to cervical cancer. They think that they have not received enough information about cervical cancer and that the information can be improved.
