Take a step back and read the area : A qualitative interview study about preventing threats and violence against paramedics in a mid sized swedish region (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study was to create an understanding of how paramedics have experienced situations where they were exposed to threats and violence, and how the staff described how threats and violence could be prevented. Five semistructured interviews was performed in a mid sized region in Sweden. The main result showed that all respondents, at some occasion, have felt threatened. There have also been situations where they have been exposed to violent events. Patients with certain illnesses could contribute to the feeling of being exposed to threats and violence; although, if the employer had provided education and support in this, then maybe the situations could have been prevented. Our most important conclusion was that there have been little to no preventive work against threats and violence, except for a few courses, although, all respondents felt that experience had the biggest impact for how threatening and violent situations were handled.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att skapa förståelse för hur ambulanspersonal har upplevt situationer där de mött hot och våld samt hur personalen beskrev att hot och våld kunde förebyggas. Fem semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes i en medelstor region i Sverige. Huvudresultatet visade att samtliga intervjudeltagare vid något tillfälle hade känt sig hotade, det har också förekommit situationer där de blivit utsatta för våldsamma händelser. Patienter med vissa sjukdomsbilder kunde bidra till känslan av utsatthet för hot och våld, men hade arbetsgivaren gett utbildning och stöd i detta kanske situationen hade kunnat förebyggas. Vår viktigaste slutsats blev att det förebyggande arbetet för hot och våld har lyst med sin frånvaro, någon enstaka utbildning har erbjudits men alla intervjudeltagare menade att det var erfarenhet som hade störst betydelse för hur hot- och våldssituationer hanterades.
