Fathers in child health care: Fathers and nurse’s experience. : A meta-synthesis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund. Pappors engagemang i sina barn har setts ge minskad förekomst av psykologiska problem i tonåren hos flickor och minskat utåtagerande av pojkar i skolåldern. Personal som jobbar med barn rekommenderas därför aktivt uppmuntra pappor att engagera sig i sina barn från tidig ålder. Barnhälsovården i Sverige erbjuds alla föräldrar kostnadsfritt och når ut till näst intill alla barn. Syfte. Syftet med studien var att undersöka rådande kunskap kring pappors och sjuksköterskors upplevelse av pappors deltagande i barnhälsovården. Metod. Tio  studier syntetiserades och tolkades med hjälp av metasyntes inspirerad av Roséns (2014) beskrivning. Resultat. Pappors deltagande inom barnhälsovården är beroende av bland annat arbetsliv och upplevelsen av att känna sig välkommen inom barnhälsovården. Sjuksköterskorna uttrycker en medvetenhet över vad de kan göra för att öka deltagandet av pappor inom barnhälsovården men menar att det är upp till föräldrarna att bestämma hur deltagandet skall se ut. Slutsats. En djupare förståelse av pappors upplevelser behövs för att bemöta och stödja pappor inom barnhälsovården för att öka deras deltagande och på så sätt främja barns hälsa och utveckling på sikt.
