Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Föräldrar är ofta oroliga i samband med barnets operation. Studier har visat att god information till föräldrarna kan minska denna oro. Dock har studier även visat att föräldrar till barn som ska opereras får ofta bristfällig information både pre-, per- och postoperativt.

Syfte: Syftet med den här studien är att ta reda på hur föräldrar till barn som har opererats, på ett barnsjukhus i mellersta Sverige, upplevde informationen de har fått pre-, per- och postoperativt.

Metod: Kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes med nio deltagande föräldrar. Data analyserades med innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Den skriftliga hemskickade informationen upplevdes bristfällig då information om operationen samt hemsidan saknades. Den muntliga preoperativa informationen upplevde vissa föräldrarna som tillräcklig då de fick information angående operationen. Andra föräldrar kunde uppleva informationen som bristande då de inte förstod informationen samt upplevde att vårdpersonalen var stressad. Det var endast en förälder som fick peroperativ information. Den postoperativa informationen upplevdes av vissa föräldrar som tillräcklig samt tydlig men även stressig.

Slutsats: De flesta föräldrar upplevde informationen som förtroendeingivande, barnvänlig och relevant. Mer information var önskvärt. Den främsta anledningen till att det inte gavs mer information var för att personalen hade tidsbrist. Informationen kunde upplevas som förvirrande då det fanns flera informationskällor. Föräldrarna uppgav att en bristfällig information bidrog till ökad oro.

Abstract [en]

Background: Parents are often worried in relation to their child's surgery. Studies have shown that good information to parents can reduce this anxiety. However, studies have also shown that parents of children who have surgery often get insufficient information both pre-, peri-and postoperatively.Aim: The purpose of this study was to find out how parents of children who have undergone surgery in a children's hospital in central Sweden, experienced information they have received pre-, per-and postoperatively.Methods: Qualitative interviews were conducted with nine participating parents. Data were analyzed by content analysis.Results: The written information sent home was perceived as inadequate information about the operation procedure and the homepage. The oral preoperative information was by some parents experienced as sufficient. Other parents perceived it as incomplete as they did not understand the information, and felt that the medical staff was stressed. There was only one parent who received perioperative information. The postoperative information was experienced as sufficient and clear but also stressful.

Conclusion: The majority of the parents perceived that the information was trustworthy, child-friendly and relevant but that more information was desired. The main reason for the lack of information was due to time constraints among the staff. The information could be perceived as confusing since there were several sources of information. The parents stated that a lack of information contributed to increased anxiety.
