Abstract [en]

Background: Research shows that caring for people with dementia (PMD) at the perioperative stage often is a major challenge for anesthetic nurses. PMD suffers from cognitive impairments, making it difficult to communicate, collaborate and understand information. Research shows that PMD are more likely to develop anxiety due to lack of these abilities. Aim: The aim of the study is to investigate the experiences of registered nurse anesthesia in caring for PMD at the perioperative stage. Method:A qualitative research design, with eight semi-structured interviews were chosen. The sample were anesthetic nurses with at least 1 year experience. All interviews were recorded and transcribed. Result: The result shows two generic categories: Resources in the care of PMD and obstacles in the care of PMD. the eight subcategories were: Measures to reduce anxiety, Safe care environment, Support of relatives, Problems in communication, Challenges in medication, Differences in various surgical procedures, Lack of time, Lack of education. Conclusion:PMD are a challenging group of patients due to their cognitive impairment. The caregiver therefore has an increased need for resources and requires that certain specific measures are been taken.
