Abstract [sv]

Upplevelsen av mötet med skolsköterskan – Hbtq-ungdomars erfarenheter och förväntningar

Syfte: Att beskriva HBTQ-ungdomars erfarenheter av och förväntningar på skolsköterskans stöd i relation till deras sexualitet.

Bakgrund: Forskning visar att skolsköterskan kan ha bristande kunskap samt negativa attityder gentemot sexuella minoriteter. Studier visar även att elever inte ansåg det säkert att prata med skolsköterskan om sexualitet.

Metod: Ostrukturerade, berättande forskningsintervjuer genomfördes med 10 ungdomar som identifierade sig som HBTQ. Intervjuerna analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Studien visar att ungdomar som identifierar sig som HBTQ hade upplevt både positiva och negativa erfarenheter i mötet med sin skolsköterska. De ungdomar som haft positiva erfarenheter av sin skolsköterska upplevde att hen lyssnade med respekt och förmedlade trygghet. De negativa erfarenheterna grundades på att skolsköterskan haft bristande kunskap om HBTQ samt upplevts heteronormativ. Ungdomarna förväntade sig att bli lika behandlade, få möjlighet till aktivt samtalsstöd, en tillitsfull relation och ett kompetent bemötande från skolsköterskan.

Slutsats: Skolsköterskan behöver ha kompetens och kunskap om HBTQ för att hen ska kunna möta ungdomar som identifierar sig som HBTQ på ett adekvat sätt. 

Abstract [en]

The feeling of the meeting with the school nurse – LGBTQ-youths experiences and expectations

Aim: To describe experiences of and expectations on support from school nurses by young LGBTQ people.

Background: Research shows that school nurses may lack knowledge and have negative attitudes towards sexual minorities. Studies also show that students did not feel safe talking to the school nurse about sexuality.

Method: Unstructured narrative interviews were conducted with 10 youths who identified themselves as LGBTQ. The interviews were analyzed with qualitative content analysis.

Results: The study shows that youths who identify themselves as LGBTQ have had both positive and negative experiences in interactions with their school nurse. Youths who have had positive experiences with their school nurse felt that the nurse listened with respect and mediated safety. The negative experiences are due to the school nurse not being well versed in the subject of LGBTQ as well as seeming heteronormative. The expectations of the youths were to be treated equally, given the opportunity for active call support, a trustworthy relationship and a competent response from school nurses.

Conclusion: A school nurse needs to be compentent and possess knowledge in LGBTQ to properly interact with LGBTQ-youths.
