Abstract [en]

Background: Being a sibling usually means that you have a strong bond to your sister or brother. Childhood cancer can mean that the whole family changes and the siblings experience loneliness and family exclusion.Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe the sibling's experiences of having a sister or brother with cancer.Method: The literature study was based on a qualitative approach, where ten scientific articles were selected from the CINAHL and PubMed databases. Thereafter, the content of the texts was analyzed and reviewed to finally compile a result.Result: The result formed three main categories that included the sibling's perspective of the disease, the sibling's way of dealing with the disease and the sibling's need to be included in the care of her ill sister or brother.Conclusion: Confirming the sibling's feelings is very important for how the siblings deal with the difficult situation. Important to meet the need for support and information to the siblings. With family-focused nursing, healthcare professionals can more easily respond to the needs of the sibling and family.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Att vara syskon innebär oftast att man har ett starkt band till sin syster eller bror. Barncancer kan innebära att hela familjen förändras och att syskonen upplever ensamhet och utanförskap i familjen.Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva syskonens upplevelser av att ha en syster eller bror med cancer.Metod: Litteraturstudien gjordes utifrån kvalitativ ansats där tio vetenskapliga artiklar valdes ur databaserna CINAHL och PubMed. Därefter analyserades och granskades texternas innehåll för att slutligen sammanställa ett resultat.Resultat: Resultatet bildade tre huvudkategorier som innebar syskonens perspektiv av sjukdomen, syskonens sätt att hantera sjukdomen och syskonens behov att vara inkluderade i vården av sin sjuka syster eller bror.Konklusion: Att bekräfta syskonens känslor är mycket viktigt för hur syskonen handskas med den svåra situationen. Viktigt att tillgodose behovet av stöd och information till syskonen. Med familjefokuserad omvårdnad kan sjukvårdspersonalen lättare bemöta syskonens och familjens behov
