Abstract [en]

Child Health Services (CHS) in Sweden form a strategic arena for Swedish health promotion, from a societal as well as individual perspective. CHS nurses are important health promotion actors and health counsellors. They give the final sharp to health promotion in the individual meetings with parents and children. CHS nurse’s educational activity is highly institutionalised, but not explicitly expressed, discussed or problematical from a health promotion aspect. During seven years Participatory Action Research (PAR) was accomplished in a Child Health Centre to improve health counselling in CHS. The Health Action process was used for the developing process. Grounded Theory (GT) was also used to increase theoretical understanding and to emerge theory for health counselling grounded in practice. The PAR and the Health Action process approach contributed to a learning process in which the nurses got more aware of the CHS context and got skills to continue improvement of health counselling. Through the GT studies the CHS nurses two missions: a public health mission (a government demand based on families as parts of the population), and a family health mission (a request from individual families) got obvious and how the CHS nurses' synthesise these two opposing missions and approaches in their practical work. PAR and GT are well corresponding for increased understanding of health promotion practice and development, and thereby supporting the transition practice - theory - practice for improving health counselling in CHS. Together a grounded theory and learning outcomes can be practice-based evidence useful to evolve evidence-based practice.
