SAMMANFATTNING

 Syfte

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka anledningen till att vissa familjer väljer att söka akutsjukvård till sina barn istället för att vända sig till andra vårdinstanser.

 Metod

En enkät utformades för studien. Enkäten delades ut till familjer som sökte för icke akuta åkommor på en barnakutmottagning i Uppsala län. Studien pågick under en tolvdagarsperiod och avslutades när 80 familjer besvarat enkäten. Frågorna bearbetades med hjälp av beskrivande statistik samt chi2-test.

 Resultat

Den huvudsakliga anledningen till att man valde att söka på barnakutmottagningen var att man telefonledes blivit hänvisad av annan vårdinstans (73,8%). Av de familjer som varit i kontakt med annan vårdinstans hade 70% hänvisats via sjukvårdsrådgivningen/1177.De vanligaste åkommorna som det söktes för var andningsbesvär, luftvägsinfektioner och bukbesvär. Någon skillnad i sökmönster beroende på demografiska faktorer kunde inte urskiljas.

 Slutsats

Studien visade att anledningen till att familjer sökte akutsjukvård för icke akuta åkommor i mycket stor grad berodde på att man hänvisats till barnakutmottagningen av annan vårdinstans. Det är således inte familjernas intention att söka akut i första hand utan systemets utformning som styr familjerna till barnakutmottagningen.

ABSTRACT

 Aim

The aim was to evaluate why families visited the pediatric emergency department with non-acute conditions instead of seeking other healthcare providers.

 Method

A questionnaire was constructed and distributed to families that visited a pediatric emergency department in Uppsala county. The study was terminated after twelve days. 80 families were included. The results were evaluated with descriptive statistics as well as Chi2-test.

 Results

The most common reason (73,8%) for visiting the pediatric emergency department was that the families had been instructed by phone to do so by another health care provider. Of the families that had been referred by another health care provider 70% had been referred by the ”Sjukvårdsrådgiving/1177”. The most common reasons for the visit were troubles with breathing, upper air way infection and abdominal problems. There were no discernable differences in the visiting patterns due to demographic differences.

 Conclusion

The study shows that the reason that families visited the pediatric emergency department for for non-acute conditions to a large degree was that they had been recommended to do so by another health care provider. It is thus not the families own intention to primarily visit the pediatric emergency department but the health care system channels them there.
