The area of interest in this study is nurses working with telenursing(telephone advice nursing) in primary healthcare centers,and if they can take on the role as promoters of health. Publichealth goals in recent years have placed increased emphasis onhealth promotion, for example prevention of the harmful effectsof sunbathing, alcohol, drug and tobacco abuse, promotion ofphysical activity, and healthy diet habits. These goals may implya new undertaking for healthcare providers. This study exploresif, and how nurses working with telenursing in Swedish primaryhealthcare centers actively work with health promotion, and theirperceptions of factors which may hinder and/or facilitate thiswork. Qualitative content analysis of open-ended interviews witheight nurses revealed hinders to health promotion related to theorganization, the callers, and among the nurses themselves. Ifnurses working with telenursing are to work in a more healthpromotingway, they need to have the support from leadershipand politicians. A change in understanding of what telenursingservices include seems to be needed, even among telenurses. Such a change could prove beneficiary to all citizens, and hence to the promotion of health.
