Abstract [sv]

ABSTRAKT                                                                                                        

Bakgrund: Behovet av palliativ vård är globalt, oavsett geografiskt läge eller vårdenhet. Sjuksköterskor kommer sannolikt att möta patienter i många olika situationer som är i behov av palliativ vård. Trots att många sjuksköterskor ser sitt arbete som sitt kall i livet, är få av dem förberedda på det emotionella mötet med patienter och dess närstående i livets slut.

Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att belysa sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att ge omvårdnad i livets slutskede.

 

Metod: En litteraturstudie baserad på 12 studier med kvalitativ ansats, där resultaten granskats, analyserats och slutligen sammanställts. De databaser som tillämpades för litteratursökning var CINAHL och PubMed.

Resultat: Att som sjuksköterska ge omvårdnad till patienter i livets slutskede har en förmåga att väcka betungande såväl som berikande känslor. Tre kategorier identifierades 1: Att uppleva meningsfullhet i vårdandet 2: Att uppleva smärta och otillräcklighet i vårdandet 3: Att sträva mot balans i vårdandet.

Konklusion: Litteraturstudiens resultat påvisade att sjuksköterskor upplevde berikande känslor så väl som påfrestande känslor. Det är av vikt att kunna hantera upplevda känslor för att kunna distansera sig från svåra situationer.

ABSTRACT

Background: The need of end of life care is global, regardless geography or care unit. Nurses will most likely meet patients in need of end of life care within many different situations. Although many nurses see their work as their call in life, few of them are prepared for the emotional encounters with patient and their relatives that comes with death.

Aim: To illustrate nurses' perception of caring for dying patients in end of life care.

Method: A literature review was conducted on 12 qualitative articles, where the results were reviewed, analyzed and finally compiled. Used databases are CINAHL and PubMed.

Result: Being a nurse and giving care in end of life care has a ability to awaken burdensome as well as enriching emotions. Three categories were identified 1. To experience meaningfulness with caring 2. To experience pain and insufficiency in caring 3. Striving for balance in caring.

Conclusion: The literature study showed that nurses experienced enriching feelings as well as stressful emotions. It is important for nurses to be able to handle experienced feelings in order to be able to distance themselves from difficult situations.
