Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sjuksköterskor på akutmottagning arbetar ofta i en oförutsägbar och stressig miljö där omprioriteringar behöver göras hela tiden. Att arbeta under dessa förutsättningar kan medföra en risk att uppleva samvetsstress. Forskning inom detta område har gjorts i flera kontexter men väldigt lite forskning är gjord hur den yttrar sig på en akutmottagning.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva sjuksköterskans upplevelse av samvetsstress på akutmottagningen.

Metod: En kvalitativ semistrukturerad intervjustudie genomfördes med tio sjuksköterskor från två akutmottagningar med olika storlek.

Resultat: Utifrån resultatet framkom sex kategorier och ett tema. Kategorierna var följande: Att medverka till vårdlidande; Bristande kollegialitet som grund för samvetsstress; Organisatoriska brister som grund för samvetsstress; Hantering av upplevd samvetsstress; Konsekvenser av samvetsstress och Lindring av samvetsstress. Temat mynnade ut i Samvetsstress- en börda att förhålla sig till.

Slutsats: Tillräckliga resurser och organisatoriskt stöd är viktiga medel för att lindra samvetsstress hos sjuksköterskan. Genom att sjuksköterskan arbetar med sin etiska kompetens och nyanserar kraven på sig själv kan upplevelsen av samvetsstress lindras.
