Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Tyreoideacancer drabbar cirka 400 personer årligen i Sverige varav kvinnor är överrepresenterade. Insjuknandet sker vanligen efter 50 års ålder men förekommer även i yngre åldrar. Syfte: Att få kunskap om omvårdnadsbehov och livskvalitet hos patienter med tyreoideacancer under och efter den medicinska behandlingen mot cancer. Metod: En litteraturstudie där 9 artiklar båda kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar har analyserats. Resultat: Resultatet pekar på att det finns omvårdnadsbehov under och efter avslutad cancerbehandling. Analysen visar att patienterna upplever en försämrad livskvalitet efter avslutad behandling och att detta påverkade patienternas förmåga att återgå till ett vanligt liv. Slutsats: Konsekvenserna av sjukdomen och behandling tyder på att patienterna bör erbjudas psykologiskt stöd, samtalsstöd i grupp och enskilt under en längre tid samt att en uppföljning behövs efter avslutad medicinsk behandling. Detta för att se hur patienten bibehåller sin livskvalitet och sin förmåga att klara av det vanliga livets krav och utmaningar.
