Breast cancer diagnosed women's experience of emotional support from health caring staff (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligaste cancerformen bland kvinnor. Många av de drabbade reagerar med starka känslor på diagnosen och behandlingen är tung och ofta obehaglig att ta sig igenom. Kvinnorna behöver stöd från anhöriga, vårdpersonal och andra kvinnor som har eller har haft bröstcancer. Anhöriga utgör den största källan till stöd, men stödet från vårdpersonalen är också av stor betydelse. Stöd kan delas in i emotionellt, materiellt och informativt stöd.

Syfte: Att beskriva bröstcancerdiagnostiserade kvinnors upplevelse av emotionellt stöd från vårdpersonal.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt enligt Friberg utfördes. Nio kvalitativa studier har valts ut och analyserats.

Resultat: Resultatet visar att det var många olika faktorer som påverkade om kvinnorna upplevde att de fick emotionellt stöd eller inte. Åtta kategorier bildades under analysen: vårdrelationen, kontinuitet, trygghet och tillit, respekt och individualitet, närvaro, känslighet, tid samt personliga egenskaper.

Diskussion: Resultatet jämförs med Joyce Travelbees teori som berör mycket av det som framkommit i resultatet, exempelvis att det är viktigt att se patienten som en individuell individ. I disskussionen betonas bland annat vikten av att uppfatta patienten som mångdimensionell samt hur och vårdpersonalens stress och tidsbrist påverkar möjligheten av att kunna ge emotionellt stöd.

Sökord: bröstcancer, emotionellt stöd, kvinnor, omvårdnad, stöd, upplevelse.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women. Many of the affected women react to the diagnosis with strong feelings and the treatment is tough and often unpleasant getting through. The women need support from relatives, health-care personnel and other women with or who have had breast cancer. The relatives are a big source for support, but the support from health care personnel is also of great importance. Support can be divided into emotional, material and informational support.

Aim: To describe breast cancer diagnosed women’s experience of emotional support from caring personnel.

Method: A literature review was performed according to Friberg. Nine studies with a qualitative approach were collected and analysed.

Findings: The result shows that there were many different factors who affected if the women experienced getting emotional support or not. Eight categories emerged in the analysis: the caring relation, continuity, confidence and trust, respect and individuality, presence, sensitibity, time and personal characteristics.

Discussion: The result is compared to Joyce Travelbee’s theory that is connected to much of what was found in the result, for example the importance of recognizing the patient as an individual. The discussion highlights amongst other things the matter of seeing the many different dimensions of the patient and how the pressure and lack of time affects the health caring staff’s ability to give emotional support.
