Changing in home care, a challenge for the district nurse : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Antalet vårdplatser på särskilda boenden och i slutenvården har alltjämt minskat under de senaste decennierna. Samtidigt har vårdtiderna i slutenvården blivit kortare. Detta har inneburit att hemsjukvården utökats och blivit allt mer avancerad, en trend som ser ut att fortsätta. Då distriktssköterskan i hemsjukvården är ansvarig för samordning och att stödja vårdtagaren i kontakt med vård och omsorg kan detta kan innebära att hennes arbete påverkas. 

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva distriktssköterskans uppfattning om framtida utmaningar i arbetet inom hemsjukvården. 

Metod: En kvalitativ studie genomfördes där 15 personliga intervjuer genomfördes med personer med anställning som distriktssköterskor i hemsjukvården. Intervjumaterialet analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. 

Resultat: Följande tre kategorier framkom: Förändrade vårdbehov, Förändrade samordningsbehov och Förändrade kunskapsbehov. Resultatet visar att distriktssköterskorna uppfattar att det finns behov av utveckling och förändring både inom hemsjukvården och mellan vårdinstanser för att tillmötesgå den framtida vårdtagarens förändrade vårdbehov. 

Slutsats: Distriktssköterskorna uppfattar stora förändringar i arbetet inom hemsjukvården framöver, de ses både som positiva men i vissa fall som mindre lätthanterliga utmaningar. Det är av vikt att distriktssköterskorna medverkar och bidrar med sin kunskap och sina idéer i utformningen av framtidens hemsjukvård.

Abstract [en]

Background: The number of beds in nursing homes and in the inpatient care have continued to decline during the latter decades. In addition, the stay in inpatient care has become shorter. These changes have resulted in that an increased number of patients are getting care at home and in that the care provided at home is getting increasingly advanced. This scenario is likely to prevail. The work of the district nurse may change due to the fact that the district nurse working with patients getting care at home is responsible for coordination and support of the interaction between the patient and health care organizations.

Aim: To describe, from the view of the district nurse, future challenges in home care related work. Method: A qualitative study was performed. Fifteen interviews were conducted with persons hired as district nurses for home care. The outcome of the interviews where analyzed using a qualitative content analysis.

Result: The following three categories were discovered: Changes in care requirement, Changes in cooperation requirement and Changes in knowledge requirement. The result show that the district nurse believes that developments and changes are required in home care as well as between care institutes in order to meet changing needs in care from future patients.

Conclusion: The district nurses see great changes in the future work related to home care. These changes are mainly viewed as positive changes, but to some extent more difficult challenges are also recognized. It is important that the district nurses contribute with knowledge and ideas in the forming of the future home care.
