Safe children in care : Nurses' approach to promote safety in children within children's healthcare, in a multicultural society (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Children's healthcare can easily create anxiety and insecurity in children. Therefore, is safety an important aspect that nurses should promote in all care of children and young people. The relationship between nurse and child has a significant role to play in meeting children's basic needs of safety, and promotion of children rights.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to illuminate nurses' approach to promote safety in children within children's healthcare, in a multicultural society.

Method: A method to contribute to evidencebased nursing with ground in analysis of qualitative research was used. Twelve scientific articles were analysed.

Result: Four themes emerged; to acquire knowledge, to see the whole child, to establish a good relationship and to show responsibility. Knowledge is a main key to deliver safe care, irrespective of culture. Communication strategies and individual care are benefits for the safety of the child.

Conclusion: By minimizing the risks that may pose a danger to the child and create a good relationship, the child's safety and well-being can be promoted. Nurses who listen to children and value children's thoughts promote safe children and the rights of a child. Toys have a positive impact on the child's safety and facilitates the nurse-child interaction and trust. To promote safe children the nurse should be prepared to take cultural consideration but always prioritize the best interests of the child. For cultural consideration transcultural care can be useful in providing culturally competent and safe care.
