Abstract [en]
Malaria is one of the largest health issues in Tanzania. Aim: The aim of the study was to describe nurses’ perception of teaching in malaria prevention to mothers with children under the age of five, and also mothers’ gained knowledge and compliance of this teaching. Method: Qualitative interviews with a phenomenographic approach. Results: Three main categories emerged: ‘Reduction of malaria’ comprises the nurses perception of possibilities and hindrance with teaching in prevention of malaria. ‘Teaching mothers about malaria’, comprises how organisational prerequisites and mothers level of education affects the teaching in prevention of malaria. ‘Compliance with teaching’ presents the nurses’ perceptions on the mothers’ compliance towards the teaching in malaria prevention. Conclusion: There is a need for teaching in prevention of malaria. The teaching has to be adapted to culture and traditions, in order to reach compliance. Implication: Research in the field of care exploring methods in teaching is needed.
