Abstract [en]

Background: Postoperative wound infections can lead to increased patient suffering and high costs to society. To reduce the risk of postoperative wound infections, there are a number of factors that the patient may influence. Researchers have identified that there are no studies on how the patient may be involved in the prevention of postoperative wound infections. In order to increase the understanding of that patients can act differently, it would be relevant to study the different ways patients understand their role in the prevention of postoperative wound infections.

Aim: To identify and describe the different ways patients understand their role in the prevention of postoperative wound infections.

Method: An interview study with qualitative design and phenomenographic method has been conducted with 10 participants who have undergone surgery at a university hospital.

Results: This study identified four different ways patients can understand their role in preventing postoperative wound infections, “Keep yourself and your home clean”, “Receive information from care givers and follow instructions”, “Preventing infectious diseases and preventing spread of infection” and “Take responsibility and act”. The result also shows that there are more and less complex ways for patients to perceive their role.

Conclusion: The result enables the clinical nurse specialist in theatre care to convey information based on different ways patients understand their role in preventing postoperative wound infections, and can also be used in the training of new nurses to highlight the patient´s need for individual information. It would be interesting to study how the patient perceives the caregiver's role in reducing the risk of postoperative wound infections. Together with the results of this study, it can show what the patient perceives prevents postoperative wound infections.
