Palliative care at home for patients with heart failure : a patient perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund Hjärtsvikt är en vanlig diagnos som inte går att bota utan endast symtomlindra och dessa patienter är ofta i behov av hemsjukvård i slutet av livet. För patienter med hjärtsvikt kan livskvalitén ökas genom att vårdas och få stöd i hemmet av distriktssköterskan. Syfte Syftet var att beskriva patienter med hjärtsviktsuppfattning om det stöd de önskar i samband med palliativ vård i hemmet. Metod Studien genomfördes som en integrativ litteraturstudie och fjorton artiklar analyserades. Resultatet visade att patienter uttryckte önskan om symtomlindring i hemmet när behovet fanns. Känslan av trygghet skapades genom att vårdteamet och distriktsköterskan fanns tillgängliga samt att närstående blev inkluderade. Dessutom visades det finnas behov av fortlöpande information om sjukdomen samt om vården.
