Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I Sverige blir ca 2800 kvinnor diagnostiserade med gynekologisk cancer varje år. Flera kvinnor med gynekologisk cancer får psykiska problem i samband med diagnos och behandling, och den sexuella hälsan påverkas. Efter behandling uppstår ofta fysiska förändringar på kropp och underliv, och för nästan alla kvinnor påverkar det den sexuella hälsan negativt. Information om den sexuella hälsan i samband kan hjälpa kvinnor hantera förändringarna och minska påverkan på den sexuella hälsan.

Syfte: Att undersöka hur kvinnor upplever den information de får innan, under eller efter behandlingen av gynekologisk cancer angående den sexuella hälsan samt när de önskar få informationen, hur de önskar få informationen samt vilken information de önskar.

Metod: Arbetet är designat som en litteraturstudie och inkluderar 13 artiklar med både kvantitativ och kvalitativ ansats.

Resultat: Resultatet visar att kvinnor upplever informationen i samband med behandling för gynekologisk cancer som opersonlig, för medicinsk och ofullständig. Kvinnorna får även för lite information om de fysiska förändringar som kommer efter operationen och inget stöd för att kunna hantera dessa förändringar.  Kvinnorna känner sig sällan bekväma med att själva ta upp ämnet med personal och önskar att personalen talar med dem om sexuell hälsa. Information om följder av behandlingen önskas både fås som skriftligt och muntligt.

Slutsats: Resultatet pekar på att kvinnor önskar mer information om hur behandlingen av gynekologisk cancer påverkar den sexuella hälsan. Kvinnorna vill ha information som är anpassad efter hennes behov samt att personalen behöver mer utbildning i ämnet.

Abstract [en]

Background:  In Sweden, approximately 2800 women are diagnosed with gynecological cancer each year. Several women with gynecological cancer get psychological problems in connection to diagnosis and treatment, and sexual health often affected. Surgical or conservative treatment often result in physical changes in the body and genitals, which affect the sexual health negatively. Information about sexual health before, during and after treatment can help women manage these changes and reduce the impact on the sexual health.

Aim: To examine how women experience the information they receive before, during and after treatment of gynecological cancer regarding the sexual health, when they wish to receive information, how they wish to receive the information and which information they would like to receive.

Method: The work is designed as a literature review and includes 13 articles with both quantitative and qualitative approaches.

Results: The results show that women experience information in connection with the treatment of gynecological cancer as impersonal, too medical and incomplete. Women are given deficient information about the physical changes that come after the operation and no support to manage these changes. Women themselves rarely feels comfortable with bringing up the topic with the staff and wishes that health care-personnel would speak with them about their sexual health. Women want the information both in writing and oral.

Conclusion: The results point towards that women would like more information about how the treatment of gynecological cancer affects sexual health. The women want the information to be tailored to her personal needs and that the staff needs more training on the subject.
