Abstract [sv]

Att diagnostiseras med MS och konsekvenserna som medföljer har en stor inverkan på livet. Sexuell hälsa är en betydande faktor som kan påverka hälsan och livskvalité, där det ingår fler faktorer än enbart fysiska funktionsnedsättningar. Hos personer med MS är sexuell dysfunktion ett etablerat problem, men andra faktorer som påverkar sexuell hälsa är inte lika utforskat. Arbetsterapeuters kompetens är optimal för att identifiera värdefulla aktiviteter som kan påverka den sexuella hälsan. Därför var syftet med examensarbetet att beskriva hur den sexuella hälsan påverkas hos individer med multipel skleros. Metoden var en scoping review, där artiklar samlades in från databaserna CINAHL, PsycINFO, AMED och Medline. Tjugoen artiklar granskades och analyserades. Resultatet visade att sexuell hälsa påverkas av MS relaterade symtom, som kan leda till bland annat förändrade roller, påverkan på relationer, identitetskris samt en minskad livskvalité. Slutsatsen blev att stöd från partner underlättade att hantera konsekvenserna av MS. Men personer med MS upplevde brist av stöd från sjukvården, då sexuell hälsa inte var ett ämne som togs upp.

Abstract [en]

Getting diagnosed with MS and the implications that accompany, have a major impact on life. Sexual health is a significant factor that can affect health and quality of life, which includes more factors than just physical impairments. In MS patients, sexual dysfunction is an established problem, but other factors affecting sexual health are not as explored. Occupational therapists are qualified for identifying valuable activities that may affect sexual health. The aim of this study was to describe how sexual health is affected in individuals with multiple sclerosis. The method was a scoping review, articles were collected from CINAHL, PsycINFO, AMED and Medline databases. Twenty-one articles were reviewed and analyzed. The results showed that sexual health is affected by MS related symptoms, which can lead to, among other things, changing roles, influence on relationships, identity crisis and a reduced quality of life. The conclusion was that support from partners helped ease the consequences of MS. However, MS patients experienced lack of support from health care, since sexual health was not a topic they talked about.
