The experience of being a sibling to a child with cancer : A litterature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Cancer är en sjukdom som drabbar barn i hela världen. Det finns olika former av behandlingsmetoder som anpassas till individens behov. När ett barn diagnostiseras med cancer drabbas hela familjen, inte bara barnet. Relationen mellan syskon är en av de längsta relationerna en människa har under sin livstid. Händelser som till exempel cancer kan påverka relationen markant och kan komma att ha stor inverkan på det friska syskonets liv.

Syfte: Att belysa upplevelsen av att vara syskon till ett barn med cancer.

Metod: Litteraturstudie av 11 studier, som sammanställdes och analyserades med inspiration från Fribergs trestegsmodell.

Resultat: Resultatet visar att det sker stora förändringar inom familjen när ett barn diagnostiseras med cancer. Syskon känner att cancern tar systern/brodern ifrån dem samt beskriver olika former av copingstrategier som de använder för att hantera upplevelsen.

Slutsats: Litteraturstudien visar att syskon ofta känner sig bortglömda, övergivna och har ett behov av uppmärksamhet samt att få vara delaktiga.

Nyckelord: Syskon, barncancer, upplevelse

Abstract [en]

Background: Cancer is a disease that affects children throughout the world. There are various forms of treatment methods that are adapted to the needs of the individual. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family, not just the child. The relationship between siblings is one of the longest relationships a human has during a lifetime. Events such as cancer and death can affect the relationship significantly, and can have a major impact on the healthy sibling's life.

Aim: To illustrate the experience of being a sibling to a child with cancer

Method: A review containing 11 studies which were analysed and put together with inspiration from Friberg's three-step-model

Results: The results that emerged show that there are many changes within the family. Siblings feel that the cancer takes the child away from them and describe the various forms of coping strategies they use to cope with the experience.

Conclusion: The review shows that siblings often feel forgotten, abandoned and have a need for attention and involvement.
