Abstract [en]

Background:

Caring for an elderly person at the end of life means a complex care situation

for healthcare professionals. There are several factors to consider in this regard; the patient's,

relatives and healthcare staff as described in this work from the nurse.

Aim:

The purpose of the study was to describe municipality nurses' experiences of caring for

older people in the final stages of life.

Method:

The study had a descriptive design with a qualitative approach. Data were collected

through eight interviews and analyzed using a qualitative manifest content analysis, whereas

five categories and ten sub-categories emerged.

Results:

The result is that the nurse practitioners saw this work as meaningful but also

emotional stress. Feelings like insufficiency, participation, adequacy and existential issues

were raised at the nurse's nurse. The palliative care complexity was visualized as the patient's

self-determination, relatives, and nursing staff's needs were made visible and met.

Conclusion:

Palliative care is a person-centered care based on patient needs, which proved to

be complex. Corresponding to these expectations and implementing the required care creates

experiences, good and less good, with nurses who consciously or not, affect them regardless

of patient or care opportunity and give a chance of reflection, further experience and

opportunity to grow as a person and in profession.
