Användning av Infektionsverktyget (IV) med fokus på uppföljning av vårdrelaterade infektioner och antibiotikaförskrivning; nytta, utmaningar och behov : En intervjustudie
Sammanfattning: Background: Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and antibiotic resistance have over the years proven to be increasingly growing health problems globally. HAI commonly develop in patients during hospitalization for treatment of other diseases whereas antibiotic resistance develops due to continual irrational use of antibiotics. Aim: The aim of this study is to look into the current use of the digital Infection Tool (IV), within Swedish healthcare. More specifically, to identify possible benefits of tool use as well as to point out existing challenges and suggested improvements from current users. Methods: This study uses a qualitative research approach with individual semi-structural digital interviews conducted with thirteen users of IV. Interviews were conducted with several different user groups of IV digital tool and the collected data was analyzed using thematic inductive analysis. Results: Study participants agrees IV digital tool is an important asset to Swedish healthcare that has contributed to effectively reducing the number of HAIs meanwhile preventing further development of antibiotic resistance. However, in order to increase input data quality, which would serve for future work in prevention of HAI, healthcare providers need to train IV digital tool users how to register HAI in patient journals. Conclusion: Overall, according to the participants, the use of IV digital tool is good, however, there is room for improvement. The study results could be used by Inera as a basis for future improvements of the digital tool and by healthcare providers looking to improve its implementation in local journal systems.
