Abstract [sv]

Sjuksköterskor verksamma på barnavårdscentral (BVC) möter dagligen flyktingbarn och deras föräldrar i sitt arbete och dessa möten ser olika ut beroende på olika faktorer. Syftet med studien var att beskriva BVC- sjuksköterskors arbete med flyktingbarn och deras föräldrar. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes och analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Ur resultatet kom tre kategorier: att skapa trygghet, att vara lyhörd och att ge stöd. I kategorin att skapa trygghet beskrev BVC- sjuksköterskor hur de arbetade för att skapa jämlik vård, öka tillgängligheten samt belyste de vikten av kontinuitet i vården för flyktingbarnen. Kategorin att vara lyhörd innefattade sjuksköterskors sätt att se det enskilda barnets behov. Detta tillämpades med respekt, förståelse och acceptans för kulturella skillnader. Att ge stöd genom behjälplighet vid språk-och kommunikationssvårigheter, rätt anpassad information och samverkan med andra professioner gav flyktingbarnen tryggare och snabbare integrering i det svenska samhället. Svårigheter som BVC- sjuksköterskorna beskrev var kommunikation via tolk, brist på resurser och brist på kontinuitet i arbete med flyktingbarn. Fortsatt forskning behövs för att få ökad kunskap och förståelse kring flyktingbarns behov. Det behövs även fortsatta studier i utveckling, organisation och samordning av verksamheter som bedriver vård och omsorg för flyktingbarn.

Abstract [en]

 Nurses working in Child Health Centers (CHC-nurses) face daily refugee children and their parents in their work and these meetings vary depending on various factors.The aim of this study was to describe CHC-nurses experience of working with refugee children and their parents. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. From the result three categories emerged; to create security, to be responsive and to provide support. In the category to create security the CHC-nurses described how they worked to create equal care, increase accessibility, and highlight the importance of the continuity in the health care of refugee children. Category to be responsive comprised nurses' approach to the individual child's needs which was applied with respect, understanding and acceptance of cultural differences. Providing support through helpfulness with language and communication difficulties, the right customized information and collaboration with other professions gave refugee children safer and faster integration into the Swedish society. Difficulties described by the CHC-nurses were communication through interpreters, lack of resources and lack of continuity in the work with refugee children. Continued research is needed to increase knowledge and understanding of refugee children’s needs. Further studies in development, organization and coordination of activities engaged in health care for refugee children are needed.
