Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur sköterskor som arbetar på en operationsavdelning där WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist används, upplever kommunikation, samarbete och patientsäkerhet.

Kort metodbeskrivning: Kvantitativ metod. Design: Deskriptiv, retrospektiv, icke-experimentell tvärsnittsstudie. Datainsamlingen genomfördes på en operationsavdelning som använt WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist drygt ett år. Deltagarna fick anonymt besvara ett frågeformulär med strukturerade frågor, en översatt version av the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ) anpassad till operationspersonal (OR). I studien undersöktes 3 av frågeformulärets 6 teman: säkerhetskultur, samarbetsklimat och stressidentifiering. Vidare undersöktes hur sköterskorna tyckte att kommunikationen på operationssalen fungerade; samt i vilken grad checklistan hade förbättrat kommunikationen, samarbetet och patientsäkerheten på operationssalen. Varje fråga besvarades genom en femgradig Likertskala.

Huvudresultat: Fynden visar att man kan anta att sköterskorna upplevde att kvaliteten på kommunikationen och samarbetet på operationssalen var hög. Vidare ser det ut som om deltagarna ansåg att patientsäkerheten fungerade adekvat och att checklistan var viktig för patientsäkerheten. Resultaten visar också att sköterskorna tyckte att checklistan i hög grad har förbättrat kommunikationen, samarbetet och patientsäkerheten på operationssalen.

Slutsats: Sköterskornas upplevelse av kommunikation, samarbete och patientsäkerhet på operationssalen antas huvudsakligen vara positiv 1 år efter att WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist infördes.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine the nurses´ experiences of communication, teamwork and patient safety in an operation ward where WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist is used. 

Quantitative method. Design: descriptive, retrospective, non-experimental cross-sectional study. The data collection was implemented in an operation theatre where WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist had been applied for the last year. The participants responded to a structured questionnaire, a translated version of the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ) adjusted for operating rooms (OR). In the study 3 of 6 themes of the questionnaire was examined: safety culture, teamwork climate and stress identity. The study examined the nurses´ experiences of communication in the operating room; and to what extent the checklist has improved the communication, teamwork and patient safety in the operating room. Each item was answered using a 5-point Likert scale.

The findings reveal nurses´ experience of high quality of communication and collaboration in the operating room. Further it seems that the participants thought the patient safety was sufficient, and the checklist briefing was important for the patient safety. The results also show that nurses thought the checklist briefing has improved the communication, collaboration and patient safety in the operating room.

The nurses´ experiences of communication, teamwork and patient safety in the operating room were assumed as mostly positive 1 year after the introduction of the WHO´s Surgical Safety Checklist.
