Nurses experiences of encounters with parents to sick children (English)
Background: Patientlagen from 2014 clarified the guardians rights to information concerning patients that are children. Inadequate communication during meetings created insecure parents and stressed children. Nurses have an important role within healthcare to support and inform parents from the perspective of the children's and family's needs.
Aim: To describe nurses experiences of meetings with parents to sick children within a hospital setting. Method: A literature-based study based on ten qualitative articles.
Results: Five themes were presented based on the aims of this study: to shield and protect, to find balance, to be in disagreement, to feel vulnerable, and strengthed by meetings. Conclusion: The experiences of nurses displayed a desire to shield and protect parents to sick children. The nurse's work to find balance relating to an appropriate level of participation for the parents was complex. The study provided an awareness of how nurses balanced both professional and private aspects when relating to parents. The nurses felt a sense of vulnerability and risked being burdened by negative experiences of certain meetings which could have consequences in the future.
