Abstract [en]

1.Background: This paper concerns an encounter with a boy, 18 months of age, diagnosed with malignant tumor in his stomach. He could just say some words, but was able to loudly and clearly express his fear and feelings of inconvenience during nursing care procedures. These nursing care situations were a challenge for the health care professional; to encounter a very small person and simultaneously create possibilities of trustful relation.

2. Objectives / Aim: To make reflections about this specific encounter where a small child with severe illness finds trust in a paediatric nursing care situation, and how this trust was enabled by health care professionals acts.

3. Method: A case study, a philosophical and qualitative investigation of empirical data, an incident in real-life context; a little boy being treated at a general paediatric ward in a county hospital.

4. Results / Conclusion: In spite of his apprehensions; he dared to trust the health care professional. The little boy listened to the information, made a decision and cooperated during the nursing care procedure. Trust comes from the little boys need in his situation, which can and must be provided by health care professional. It is always a risk to rely on another person; expectations can be ruined. Trust can be seen as an invitation to be listened to and a wish to be listened at and to be taken seriously. There is no age limit to have a standpoint of what is going to happen in a situation, even if it is not possible for the person to express it verbally.
