Abstract [sv]

Syfte; Syftet med studien var att beskriva vilken attityd sjuksköterskan har till inducerad abort samt hur kvinnan upplever en inducerad abort.

Metod; Studien har gjorts som en litteraturstudie med deskriptiv design. Studien har baserats på 15 vetenskapliga artiklar som har sökts fram via Cinahl, Medline/Pubmed samt genom manuell sökning.

Resultat; Det går inte finna någon entydig attityd till aborter hos sjuksköterskor. Vissa har en mer positiv inställning och tycker att det är kvinnans rättighet och att sjuksköterskan ska stödja henne i detta. Samtidigt framkommer negativa attityder där sjuksköterskorna erkänner att de dömer kvinnan utifrån hennes val. En sen abort ger dock upphov till en mer negativ attityd än en tidig. Kvinnan i sin tur upplever sig ofta oförberedd inför beslut hon ställs inför i samband med aborten, som till exempel att se och röra sitt barn. Hon upplever även en brist i informationen när det gäller barnets utseende. Kvinnor som upplever sig stöttade i abortsituationen har lättare kunnat anpassa sig till situationen och negativa känslor har därmed minskats.

Slutsats; Kvinnor som genomgår en abort behöver få ett professionellt bemötande då de befinner sig i en väldigt utsatt och känslomässig situation. Därför är det av yttersta vikt att sjuksköterskan reflekterar över sin attityd till abort och till kvinnor som genomgår processen.

Abstract [en]

Purpose; The purpose of this study is to describe the nurse´s attitude towards induced abortion and how the concerned woman experiences the induced abortion.

Method; The study is of literature nature and takes on a descriptive approach. The study is based upon 15 scientific articles found via Cinahl, Medline/Pubmed and manual search.

Results; No clear attitude towards abortions was found among the nurses. Some nurses reported a positive attitude and considered it to be a woman´s right, hence they should support their choice. On the other hand negative attitudes were also revealed where nurses acknowledged a judgmental attitude towards the woman’s choice. An abortion performed later during the pregnancy did give raise to a more negative attitude compared to an early abortion. The concerned women described a sense of unpreparedness regarding the decisions they face in conjunction with the abortion. Furthermore, the women experiences lack of information regarding the baby´s appearance. Women who feel supported during the process of the abortion have more easily adapted to the situation and therefore experienced less negative emotions.

Summary; Women who are going through an abortion needs professional support as they are in the middle of a very emotional and exposed situation. Hence it is of importance that the nurse reflects over her own attitude towards abortion and the concerned woman.
