CHILD-researcher nails her thesis to the wall

Ingalill Gimbler Berglund nails her licentiate thesis to the wall on Thursday, 6 September at 9.30 am at School of Health Sciences, University of Jönköping. The thesis is called 'Nurse anaesthetist's interactions and assessment of children's anxiety' and will later on be publicly defended at the licentiate seminar in October.

The overall purpose of Ingalill Gimbler Berglund's research is to describe the nurse anaesthetists interactions with children during anaesthesia induction and to validate an assessment tool of preoperative anxiety in children in the Swedish context. Anaesthetic induction is a stressful experience for children. Nurse anaesthetists behaviour affects the child and the degree of anxiety the child experiences during the perioperative period. Through research can positive interaction between the nurse anaesthetists and the child be emphasized and, thereby possibilities to improving the perioperative care for children. Finding a reliable assessment tool of children's anxiety facilitates further research to improve the care of children. The research is based on interviews with nurse anaesthetists and observations of children
