    Abstract [en]

    Background: To feel pain is one of the main driving forces behind our will to survive. Pain is a subjective experience and a complicated problem which may lead to suffering and health problems for the individual. People with persistent pain suffers more from depression and anxiety. Difficulties to relieve pain and nurses lack of knowledge can lead to insufficient care and may cause further suffering to the individual with persistent pain. Therefore, it is of immense importance that nurses gain an increased understanding of the perceptions of persistent pain.

    Purpose: The aim of the study was to explore people’s experiences of living with persistent pain.

    Method: A qualitative literature study was conducted. Scientific articles were found with database searches through CINAHL and PubMed. Ten articles were reviewed, analysed and compiled.

    Result: A summary of results showed two main categories: Impact on social relations and Hope and despair with additional eight subcategories.

    Conclusion: The literature study shows that caregivers knowledge of persistent pain is limited, while the affected individuals experience a lack of understanding from healthcare providers and loved ones. More knowledge is needed to identify the risk factors and improving interaction between healthcare providers and patients.
