Abstract [en]

Human Papilloma virus (HPV) can lead to cervical cancer, a common form of cancer in Sweden and globally. A vaccine has been developed for the most carcinogenic strains of HPV. In Sweden it is planned that the vaccine be included in the public national vaccination program for children. The aim of this study was to illustrate attitudes towards future sexual habits and preventive cervical cancer screening among young women and parents of girls vaccinated against HPV. This study is a part of a larger project where interviews with young women aged 17 to 26 years and parents of girls aged 13 to 17 years compose the foundation. In this study the interviews were analysed with qualitative latent content analysis, all together 21 interviews. The main result was that in both groups it was generally thought that neither future sexual habits nor participation in cervical cancer screening would be considerably affected. The young women however had deficient knowledge about what they were vaccinated against and the purpose of cervical cancer screening. The parents had better understanding. Accurate information about HPV, the HPV vaccine and cervical cancer screening in connection with vaccination is important for the outcome of future sexual habits and participation in cervical cancer screening.

Abstract [sv]

Humant papillomvirus (HPV) kan leda till cervixcancer som är en vanlig cancersort både i Sverige och globalt. Ett vaccin har utvecklats mot de mest onkogena HPV-typerna. I Sverige ska HPV-vaccinet ingå i det allmänna nationella vaccinationsprogrammet för barn. Syftet med studien var att belysa inställningen till framtida sexualvanor och gynekologiska cellprovskontroller (GCK) bland unga kvinnor och föräldrar till flickor som HPV-vaccinerats. Denna studie är en del av ett större projekt där intervjuer med unga kvinnor 17-26 år samt med föräldrar till flickor 13-17 år utgör grunden. I denna studie analyserades intervjuerna med kvalitativ latent innehållsanalys, sammanlagt 21 intervjuer. Det huvudsakliga resultatet som framkom var att majoriteten av de unga kvinnorna och föräldrarna till flickorna inte trodde att framtida sexualvanor skulle förändras samt att deltagande i framtida GCK inte skulle påverkas nämnvärt. Det framkom dock att de unga kvinnorna hade bristfälliga kunskaper om vad de var vaccinerade emot och vad GCK var. Föräldrarna till flickorna hade större kunskap om vad vaccinering och GCK innebar än de unga kvinnorna. Vikten av rätt sorts information om HPV, HPV-vaccin och GCK i samband med vaccination framkom som ett betydande resultat för utfallet för de framtida sexualvanorna och deltagandet i GCK.
