Women’s decision making in prophylactic mastectomy (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Profylaktisk mastektomi är en behandling där brösten avlägsnas kirurgiskt i förebyggande syfte. Det finns olika indikationer till att profylaktisk mastektomi övervägs. Begreppet beslutsfattande kräver förståelse för att kunna beskriva kvinnors beslut vid profylaktisk kirurgi med anledning av att den individuella osäkerheten kring behandlingsval ska minska. Information och stöd är viktiga aspekter för en sjuksköterska att ge för att främja patientens integritet, självbestämmande och delaktighet. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva faktorer relaterade till beslutsfattandet hos kvinnor vid profylaktisk mastektomi. Metoden som användes var en allmän litteraturstudie med induktiv ansats där tio vetenskapliga artiklar med anknytning till aktuellt syfte valdes ut för att utforma ett resultat. Resultatet utmynnade i tre olika kategorier varav en med två underkategorier och en med tre underkategorier. Oro, föräldraskap, genmutation och upplevelse av information visade sig influera beslutsfattandet. Få skillnader i beslutsfattandet påvisades mellan kvinnor som var bärare och ickebärare av genmutation. Konklusion: Kvinnor som stod inför ett beslutsfattande vid profylaktisk mastektomi var alla egna individer och hade därmed olika preferenser i avseende behov av stöd, delaktighet i beslutsfattandet, mottagandet av information samt vad som influerat beslutet. Vårdprofessionella ska presentera adekvat, evidensbaserad samt enhällig information för att underlätta kvinnors beslutfattande. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Prophylactic mastectomy is a treatment where the breasts are surgically removed for preventive purposes. There are various indications why prophylactic mastectomy is being considered. Understanding the concept of decision making is required to describe women’s decision about prophylactic surgery in order to reduce individual uncertainty about treatment choices. Information and support are important aspects for a nurse to provide in order to encourage patient integrity, self-determination and participation. The aim of this literature study was to describe factors related to decision making among women regarding prophylactic mastectomy. The method was a literature study with an inductive approach. Ten scientific articles related to the current purpose were selected to form a result. The result emerged in to three different categories, one with two subcategories and one with three subcategories. Concerns, parenting, gene mutation and experience of information were found to influence the decision making. Few differences in decision making were detected between women who were carriers and non-carriers of gene mutation. Conclusion: Women who faced a decision making in prophylactic mastectomy were all individuals and there for had different preferences regarding need for support, participation in decision making, receiving information and what influenced the decision. Health care professionals should present adequat, evidence based and unanimous information to ease women’s decision making.
