End of life care : Nurses' experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Årligen avlider ca 92 000 personer i Sverige av dessa avlider ca 35 % på sjukhus eller på annan institution. Arbetet som sjuksköterska inom palliativ vård innebär nära kontakt med döden och insikten om sin egen dödlighet. Palliativ vård inriktar sig på att förbättra eller upprätthålla den sjukes livskvalitet men verkar inte för att vare sig påskynda eller fördröja döden. Syftet med denna litteratur studie var att belysa sjuksköterskans upplevelser av att vårda en patient i livets slutskede. Arbetet utfördes som en litteraturstudie där 16 vetenskapliga artiklar granskades. I resultatet framkom två kategorier, Sjuksköterskors upplevelser av relationer i vårdandet samt sjuksköterskors upplevelser av yrkeserfarenheter. Resultatet påvisade att sjuksköterskans relationer till patienter, kollegor och patientens anhöriga var viktiga. Relationerna kunde vara svårdefinierade men de gav bra stöd åt sjuksköterskan. Det framkom även att bristen på tid kunde vara ett stort problem. Hur sjuksköterskan upplevde att det var att vårda en patient inom palliativ vård påverkades av egna erfarenheter samt yrkeserfarenheter. Önskvärt är mer utbildning för sjuksköterskan kring vården av en patient i livets slutskede.

Abstract [en]

Every year about 92 000 people dies in Sweden, about 35% of these deaths occur in a hospital or at another institution. To work as a nurse in palliative involves close contact with death and the realization of the nurses own mortality. Palliative care focuses on improving or maintaining the patient's quality of life, but neither to hurry or slowdown death. The purpose of this scientific work was therefor to highlight nurses’ experiences of caring for patients at the end of life. The study was conducted as a literature review, 16 research articles were examined. The results revealed two categories, nurses' experiences of relationships in caring and nurses' experience of professional experience. The results demonstrate that nurses' relationships with patients, colleagues and relatives of the patients were important. Relations could have varied forms but they often gave support to the nurse. It was also found that lack of time could be a major problem. How the nurse came to experience nursing in palliative care was influenced both by personal experience and professional experience. More education is desirable for the nurses that are caring for patients at the end of life.
