Surgical nurses experience of work-related stress (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sjukvården är en miljö med förekomst av arbetsrelaterad stress. På en operationsavdelning är arbetet mycket intensivt och det bedrivs högspecialiserad vård. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva operationssjuksköterskors upplevelse av arbetsrelaterad stress. Metod: En empirisk kvalitativ studie genomfördes. Fyra strategiskt utvalda operationssjuksköterskor från två olika operationsavdelningar vid ett stort universitetssjukhus i Mellansverige deltog i studien. Ljudinspelade intervjuer genomfördes med hjälp av en semistrukturerad intervjuguide. En manifest innehållsanalys utfördes. Resultat: Tre huvudkategorier påträffades; färdigheter, arbetsmiljö och operationsplanering. Operationssjuksköterskorna beskrev att avsaknad av erfarenhet och kontroll var bidragande faktorer för upplevd arbetsrelaterad stress. Dålig kommunikation mellan kollegor och en operationsplanering som inte överensstämde med de resurser som fanns tillgängliga var också bidragande faktorer till uppkomst av arbetsrelaterad stress. Slutsatser: Resultatet visar att arbetsrelaterad stress är ett existerande problem inom operationssjukvården och bör utforskas vidare för att förbättra operationssjuksköterskornas arbetsvillkor och miljö.

Abstract [en]

Background: Health care is an environment with the presence of work-related stress. An operation department is very intense and it is carried on highly specialized care. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe operating room nurses' experience of work-related stress. Method: An empirical qualitative study was conducted. Four strategically selected operation room nurses from two different operation department at a large teaching hospital in central Sweden participated in the study. Recorded interviews were conducted with the help of a semi-structured interview guide. A manifest content analysis was performed. Results: Three main categories were found; skills, work environment and operation planning. Operating room nurses described the lack of experience and control as contributing factors to perceived work-related stress. Poor communication between colleagues and an operations scheduling, which was inconsistent with the resources that were available were also contributing factors to the incidence of work-related stress. Conclusions: The results tend to show that occupational stress is an existing problem in surgical care and should be further explored to improve the surgical nurses' working conditions and environment.
