Abstract [en]

Background:There is much research about district nurses’ preventive work, effects of it and their perceptions of the preventivework. Less is known about how district nurses perceive their preventive work in relation to structural conditions for this work.Aim:The aim was to describe district nurses’ perceptions of their preventive work in daily practice; and structural conditionsfor this using Kanter’s theory of structural empowerment.Methods:Interviews were conducted 2012 with nine Swedish district nurses. Data were analysed using qualitative contentanalysis.Findings:The analysis resulted in one theme; ‘To experience stimulation versus frustration; a consistency versus a discrepancybetween will and structural conditions’. District nurses who worked with specialized tasks felt that they mostly had thestructural conditions required to work in a preventive manner and that they could prioritize which unhealthy living habits todiscuss with their patients. District nurses without specialized tasks described that their structural conditions for preventivework was limited in the present streamlined organization. This in turn led to a feeling of frustration.Conclusion:Preventive work is described as stimulating when district nurses have the conditions required, yet the conditionsrequired are sometimes lacking and especially for district nurses without specialized tasks. There is a will to work in a preventivemanner but structural conditions need to be improved.
