Shaken Baby Syndrome, child health care nurses’ experiences of meeting the family (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Shaken Baby Syndrom är en allvarlig form av barnmisshandel. Förekomsten är vanligare bland barn under ett år och barnets skrik anses vara den enskilt största orsaken. BVC-sjuksköterskorna har ett ansvar i att arbeta förebyggande mot Shaken Baby Syndrom. Att som BVC-sjuksköterska möta en familj där barnet utsatts för skakvåld väcker mycket känslor och ställer höga krav på professionalitet. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att belysa BVC-sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att möta en familj, där barnet utsatts för Shaken Baby Syndrom. Metod: Data analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Fem intervjuer genomfördes med BVC-sjuksköterskor. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framträdde fyra kategorier; lyhörd för varningssignaler, tillämpa beprövad kunskap, egna insatser otillräckliga och kollegial avlastning med totalt 11 underkategorier. Konklusion: Resultaten av denna studie kan bidra till att utveckla och förbättra BVC-sjuksköterskors komplexa arbetssituation i mötet med familjen. Det kan också bidra till att BVC-sjuksköterskor lättare upptäcker varningssignaler och får en större insikt i betydelsen av att arbeta förebyggande och därmed minskar förekomsten av Shaken Baby Syndrom.
