Abstract [en]

The implementation of telenursing within home healthcare of leg wounds is an innovative development initiative that focus on patients and to some extent next-of-kin in collaboration with nurses. Eleven patients and nine nurses participated in the study. The methods for datacollection were surveys, field-notes descriptions, and care charts, as well as digital photos of leg wounds and videotaped observations. The results show that the utility of virtual concept is that continual learning takes place for both patients and nurses. The patients felt positively about being able to via videophone see the staff caring for them, and seeing a face inspired a sense of security, which had a calming effect. The learning for nurses lay in the everyday work with leg wounds and their care as experiences were taken advantage of with the assistance of the interactive technique. The nurses felt that their time at work was better utilized and that the virtual communication between patients and nurses constituted a humane complement in home healthcare.

Abstract [sv]

Införande av telenursing i hemsjukvård är ett innovativt utvecklingsinitiativ som fokuserar på patienter , och i viss mån anhöriga i samarbete med sjuksköterskor. Elva patienter och nio sjuksköterskor deltog i studien. Metoden för datainsamling var enkät, fältanteckningar, omvårdnadsdokumentation och digitala fotografier av bensår samt videoinspelade observationer. Resultatet visar att det virtuella konceptet medför kontinuerligt lärande för såväl patienter som sjuksköterskor. Patienterna var positiva till att de kunde se vårdarna, det gav en känsla av säkerhet och hade en lugnande inverkan. Det interaktiva lärandet i vardagen underlättades av att sjuksköterskorna kunde samla på erfarenheter till exempel via en digital fotobank. Sjuksköterskorna upplevde att deras arbetstid uttnyttjades bättre och att den virtuella kontakten med patienterna var ett komplement i vården. hemsjuksvård, lärande på distans, telenursing, bensår, behandling
