Abstract [en]

Background: In Sri Lanka, children with disability are being met with discrimination and stigma based on cultural and religious beliefs. Sri Lanka has ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child that states that children with disability should enjoy full and decent lives with active participation in the community. Empowerment is the process that makes it possible for these children to experience equality in society. Nurses have a vital role working with health promotion for these children. Aim: to describe how nurses work with empowerment for children with disability in a low-income country. Method: A qualitative and empiric interview study with Sri Lankan nurses from two different rehabilitation teams. Result: The nurse‟s experiences in the subject are explained like; nursing with focus on the child, nursing with focus on the mother, nursing with focus on the interdisciplinary team. Conclusion: By nursing with these focuses, the nursing interventions for children with disability had a holistic approach that covered all aspects of life.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sri Lanka blir barn med funktionsnedsättning mötta med diskriminering och stigma baserat på kulturella och religiösa övertygelser. Sri Lanka har skrivit under barnkonventionen som säger att barn med funktionsnedsättning har rätt till ett fullkomligt och värdigt liv med aktiv delaktighet i samhället. Empowerment syftar till processen som möjliggör jämlikhet i samhället för dessa barn. Sjuksköterskor har en viktig roll i denna hälsofrämjande process. Syfte: Att beskriva hur sjuksköterskor arbetar med empowerment för barn med funktionsnedsättning ett låginkomstland. Metod: En kvalitativ och empirisk intervjustudie med Sri Lankesiska sjuksköterskor från två rehabiliteringsteam. Resultat: Sjuksköterskorna beskrev sina erfarenheter så här: omvårdnad med fokus på barnet, omvårdnad med fokus på modern och omvårdnad med fokus på tvärprofessionellt team. Slutsats: Genom att ge omvårdnad för barn med funktionsnedsättning med dessa tre fokusområden är sjuksköterskans interventioner holistiska och täcker alla aspekter i livet.
