Abstract [en]

Aim: To describe staffs experiences of challenges when nursing people with dementia and BPSD.

 

Design: A qualitative study with interviews of focus groups. Eleven persons from two nursing homes in the north of Sweden were interviewed.

Results: The analysis emerged into three categories that describes staffs experiences and challenges:  To aim for seeing the person behind the illness, the importance of colleagues, it is difficult to be sufficient. Staff wanted to meet the person behind the dementia but meet difficulties in their work. The staff had a demanding job and faced challenges as an effect of not giving the right care that the staff wanted to give. The consequence of this was stress and bad conscience. The result marked the importance of having colleagues to communicate with, who wants to work in a team and after the same goals.

 

Conclusion: The challenges in nursing care of people with dementia and BPSD are many. Superiors can learn from these difficulties to provide staff what they need to give person centered care to people with dementia and BPSD. That can lead to more job satisfaction among healthcare staff  so they can keep on taking care of the people who needs them.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att beskriva vårdpersonalens upplevelser av utmaningar i stödet av personer drabbade av demenssjukdom och BPSD

 

Design: En kvalitativ intervjustudie i fokusgrupper. Totalt intervjuades elva personer från två vård- och omsorgsboenden i Norrbotten.

 

Resultat: Analysen resulterade i tre kategorier som beskriver personalens upplevelser och utmaningar: Att vilja möta personen bakom sjukdomen, Att behöva sina kollegor, Att det är svårt att räcka till. Personal strävade efter att möta personen bakom sjukdomen men mötte olika hinder i sitt arbete. Flera krav på personalen belystes samtidigt som resultatet visade på konsekvenserna av att inte kunde erbjuda den vård eller det bemötande personalen ville ge. Detta ledde till stress och dåligt samvete. Resultatet visade vilken betydelse kollegor hade i arbetet gällande kommunikation, teamarbete och att arbeta efter samma mål.

 

Slutsatser: Resultatet visade att utmaningarna i omvårdnaden av personer med demenssjukdom och BPSD är många. Genom att som arbetsledare ta del av dessa svårigheter kan de ge vårdpersonal de förutsättningar som krävs för personcentrerad vård till personer med demenssjukdom och BPSD. På så vis kan förhoppningsvis fler som arbetar med personer med demens vara nöjda med sitt arbete och fortsätta ta hand om de människor som behöver dem på bästa sätt.
