Objective: To describe telephone nursing in from telenurse, parent caller and operation manager viewpoints. Methods: Four empirical data collections, where of three qualitative interview studies, were conducted. Data were analysed with phenomenographic approach, content analysis and statistical analysis. Results: Telenursing work can by telenurses be understood in a variety of ways. Authentic pediatric calls between parents and telenurses revealed 73% mother callers concerning newborn to teenage children. Ear, skin problems, and fever were common complaints and call median 4.4 minutes. Call outcome for referral/self-care was 48/52%, with a likelihood of receiving a referral almost twice as high for fathers compared with mothers. Parent?s degree of worry and trust influenced whether to contact SHD or not. Calls were carefully prepared and the caller often depended upon family routine. Most parents followed recommendations, some to such extent that they, despite a continuously strong worry, reported not to seek healthcare without a telenurse recommendation. Operation managers mainly reported organizational goals as goals of telenursing work. Equitable healthcare was regarded important, while health promotion was not. Conclusions: The studied viewpoints of telephone nursing calls for clarification regarding goals of telephone nursing work and the goals related to healthcare obligations. The studied viewpoints can all contribute to a telenurse work description. Lack of time as a barrier to health promotion should be looked upon critically since it might be counterproductive to the goal of saving healthcare resources elsewhere. Telenurses need to be aware of their valuable role and increase parent?s consciousness of holding the ultimate responsibility for their child?s condition.
