Abstract [sv]

Väntelistor till barnpsykiatrisk vård är vanligt förekommande och tiden på väntelista har visats vara påfrestande för familjerna som väntar. Denna studie har undersökt hur föräldrar upplever tiden på väntelista till Barn- och ungdomspsykiatrin (BUP), samt vilka behov av stöd de upplever sig ha under tiden de väntar. Sju föräldrar vars barn väntade på utredning inom BUP intervjuades. Data bearbetades genom tematisk analys. Resultatet visar att föräldrarna upplevde brist på kontroll och hopplöshet, delvis på grund av att de befann sig i ovisshet under väntetiden. Vidare visar resultatet att stödinsatser som innefattar information, konsultation, avlastning och behandling efterfrågades. Resultatet diskuteras med hjälp av teorin om Locus of Control (LOC) och begreppet ovisshetsdiskrepans. Vidare forskning behövs för att öka förståelsen för hur information gällande väntetiden påverkar upplevelsen av väntetiden. Därtill behövs forskning som undersöker om och hur upplevelsen av väntetiden påverkar kommande utredning eller behandling.

Abstract [en]

Waiting lists in child and adolescent psychiatry are common and waiting for mental health services has been shown to be challenging for the families involved. This study aimed to explore how parents of children on a waiting list for an assessment experienced the wait. The study also explored what kind of support the parents felt that they needed during this period. Interviews were conducted with seven parents of children on waiting lists and data was analyzed using thematic analysis. Results showed that the parents experienced a lack of control and hopelessness during the wait, partly because of the uncertainty that characterized the waiting time. Results concerning parental support showed that information, consultation, social support and treatment were requested. Results were discussed using the theoretical framework Locus of Control (LOC) and uncertainty discrepancy. Future studies exploring how information about the waiting time affects the waiting list experience are needed. In addition, future studies that explore if and how the waiting list experience affects the coming assessment or treatment are needed.
