Background: The National Board of Health and Welfare's design of the primary care assignment describes that it is the primary care's responsibility to collaborate with other care actors. The Government's investigation to ensure good and close care in collaboration shows that there is no common view of collaboration, which leads to the care not being appropriate. The nurse is responsible for collaborating with other care actors to achieve good and safe care. Aim: Within primary care centers investigate nurses' experiences of collaborating with nurses in home care. Method: The study was based on a qualitative method with an inductive approach. Semi-structured individual interviews were conducted with eleven nurses at the primary care centers in Northwestern Skåne. Collected data analyzed with qualitative content analysis based on Burnad's four-step model. Result: The nurses' experience of collaboration was that there are both obstacles and prerequisites. The results showed that collaboration is affected by the communication channels used by the nurses. Communication takes place with indirect or direct contact. The result also shows the prerequisites needed to achieve quality in collaboration. Collaboration is affected by the quality of the information transfer and good relations between the nurses. The results also show that the opportunity for collaboration is affected by the conditions and assignments the organizations have. Conclusion: Collaboration in health and medical care is complex, which has been shown to be partly due to the fact that the nurses in the various organizations work far apart.
