Nurses´ experiences of providing palliative care for children (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Att vårda barn i livets slutskede ställer stora krav på sjuksköterskor och övrig personal. Många sjuksköterskor upplever att de fått bristfällig utbildning i att vårda palliativa barn. Alla medborgare ska ha rätt till samma vård i ett palliativt skede och detta ska inte riskeras på grund av skillnader i grundutbildningen och bristande kunskap.

Syfte: Sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att vårda barn i livets slutskede.

Metod: En litteraturstudie gjordes där resultatet av åtta vetenskapliga studier med kvalitativ ansats granskades, analyserades och sedan sammanställdes.

Resultat: Resultatet sammanställdes i tre kategorier; Skapa en förtroendefull relation, Möta svåra utmaningar samt Utveckla hanteringsstrategier.

Konklusion: Sjuksköterskor upplevde känslomässiga svårigheter med att vårda palliativa barn. Det fanns svårigheter i kommunikationen och upprätthållandet av den professionella gränsen mot barnet och familjen. Sjuksköterskorna upplevde en otillräcklighet i kunskapen och bristande utbildning inom palliativ vård. Sjuksköterskorna hade olika hanteringsstrategier för att klara av de emotionella påfrestningarna arbetet medförde och belyste vikten av kollegialt stöd.

Abstract [en]

Background: Caring children in the end of life places great demands on nurses and other staff. Many nurses experienced that they received inadequate education in caring for palliative children. All citizens should be entitled to the same care at a palliative stage and this should not be risked due to differences in basic education and lack of knowledge.

Aim: Nurses’ experiences of providing palliative care for children.

Method: A literature study was conducted where the results of eight scientific studies with qualitative approach were reviewed, analyzed and then compiled.

Result: The results was compiled into three categories; Create a trustworthy relationship, Face difficult challenges and Develop coping strategies.

Conclusion: Nurses experienced emotional difficulties in caring for palliative children. There were difficulties in communicating and maintaining the professional boundaries with the child and the family. Nurses experienced insufficient knowledge and lack of education in palliative care. Nurses had different coping strategies to deal with the emotional stress caused by the work and highlighted the importance of collegial support.
