Abstract [en]

Children who are critically ill are vulnerable, and the nurse has a responsibility to meet the child`s needs in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Aim: The aim was to explore the vulnerable child's participation and how it can be understood through the nurses’ perspective in the nursing care intervention.

Design: The study design was an exploratory inductive qualitative approach. Data collection was done through observations and interviews. The data from the observations were analyzed through interpretive phenomenology.

Results: The affective elements were viewed as essential to uncover how children participate in the PICU. Three themes emerged through the analysis: Mediated participation, Bodily participation and Participation by proxy. They all highlight a different aspect of the vulnerable child's way of participating in the nursing care given, through nurses' awareness and situated salience. The concept of participation should be redefined and broadened; as participation can present itself through the child's body in diverse ways.
