Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Befolkningen i världen blir allt äldre. Årligen är ca 40 miljoner människor i världen i behov av palliativ vård. Sjuksköterskan anses ha en nyckelroll inom den palliativa vården.

Syfte: Att beskriva sjuksköterskans erfarenheter av att vårda personer vid livets slut.

Metod: En litteraturstudie  genomfördes baserad på 9 kvalitativa studier.

Resultat: Litteraturstudiens resultat visar på att sjuksköterskorna upplevde arbetet med att vårda döende personer som både meningsfullt och utmanande. Sjuksköterskorna upplevde organisatoriska begränsningar och använde sig av coping strategier för att klara sitt arbete.

Slutsats: Vård vid livets slut handlar om att säkerställa en god död för den döende personen. Arbetet innebär både possitiva och negativa erfarenheter för sjuksköterskan. Litteraturstudien gav en viktig insyn i de utmaningar sjuksköterskan möter inom palliativ vård.
