Factors to why patients do not attend scheduled appointments in radiology : A literary review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Uteblivna patientbesök är ett problem som påverkar sjukhusen ekonomi men även patienternas hälsa. No shows är ett uttryck som används för de patienter som utan att meddela ej kommer till bokade besök och denna patientgrupp riskerar i högre grad att insjukna akut samt förvärra sitt sjukdomstillstånd genom att utebli. No shows ger även en stor ekonomisk belastning på sjukvården. Patienter som avbokar eller väljer att ej närvara vid besök, där bland screeningpatienter, löper en högre risk att insjukna akut än de som deltar vid screening. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka faktorer till att patienter uteblir från besök vid röntgenavdelningen. Metod: Denna studie genomfördes som en allmän litteraturöversikt. Artikelsökningen gjordes i databaserna PubMed samt Cinhal och resulterade i 15 artiklar som svarade mot syftet. Resultat: Orsaker till uteblivna besök sammanställdes i sex huvudgrenar; rädsla, praktiska faktorer, ålder, administration, familj och socioekonomisk status. Slutsats: Liknande resultat återfinns i studier vid andra avdelningar och resultatet kunde således generaliseras. Mer forskning behövs om varför dessa huvudgrenar påverkar att patienterna ej kommer på sina besök. Det är av vikt för röntgensjuksköterskan att veta om orsaker till uteblivna besök för att kunna jobba mot en förändring som kan förbättra både sjukhusens ekonomi men även patienthälsan.
