Experiences of living with rheumatoid arthritis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Reumatoid artrit är en progressiv inflammatorisk sjukdom som bland annat orsakar smärta och fatigue i kroppen där hela personen och dess liv påverkas. Brist på kunskap om hur det är att leva med reumatoid artrit kan leda till att personer inte får den vård de behöver. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa erfarenheter av att leva med reumatoid artrit. Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie. Databassökningar gjordes systematiskt med sökord som var relevanta utifrån syftet. Litteraturstudien baserades på åtta kvalitativa artiklar som kvalitetsgranskades och analyserades, vilka resulterade i två teman, begränsningar och strategier. Erfarenheterna av att leva med reumatoid artrit var att symtomen begränsade personen i det dagliga livet. För att hantera begränsningarna och ta sig vidare i livet krävdes planering och acceptans. Genom att fokusera på det som var bra insåg personerna att de är så mycket mer än sjukdomen. Personcentrerad vård är en av sjuksköterskans kärnkompetenser som fokuserar på att se hela människan utifrån respekt och lyhördhet vilket leder till individualiserad vård där personer känner sig sedda och hörda. 

Abstract [en]

Rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive inflammatory disease that causes pain and fatigue. The whole individual and their life is affected by living with rheumatoid arthritis. Lack of knowledge about living with rheumatoid arthritis can lead to that people don´t get the care they need. The purpose of the literature study was to highlight experiences of living with rheumatoid arthritis. The study was conducted as a literature study. Database searches were made systematically using keywords relevant to the purpose. The literature study was based on eight qualitative articles which were analyzed and graded for quality. The themes of the result were limitations and strategies. The experience of living with rheumatoid arthritis was that the symptoms limited the person and their daily life. To manage the constraints and move on in life, planning and acceptance were required. By focusing on what was good, the people realized that they were so much more than the disease. Person-centered care is one of the nurse's core competencies, focusing on seeing the whole human being based on respect and responsiveness, which leads to individualized care where people feel seen and heard.
