Barn och föräldrars uppfattning om bildstöd inom barnsjukvård
Sammanfattning: This study aimed to investigate children’s and parents’ perceptions of pictorial support in connection to hospital visits. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with four children, aged 6–11 years, and six parents from a total of four families. Two of the children had autism. Data was transcribed and analyzed thematically. The results showed that pictorial support facilitated understanding of the course of events and reduced anxiety in both children with and without autism, and parents. The children’s participation also increased. Some children expressed wishes for pictures that were considered missing in the pictorial support. It also apppeared that some pictures were difficult to understand. The results of the present study indicate that there is a need for individualized care and that hospital staff should take children's opinions and needs into consideration regarding pictorial support. However, the findings of this study, involving interviews with four families, are not generalisable and thus further studies, involving larger groups, are needed.
