Abstract [en]

Background: Relatives are those persons who are closest to the patient, regardless of relationship and included into the patient´s life world. When a person is in a palliative stage this affects not only the patient but also the relatives, as it implies such a big change in life for all. The nurse has an important role for both the patient and the relatives.

 Aim: The aim is to highlight the relative´s needs of support for palliative care.

 Method: A literature review based on previous research. Ten articles were found, nine with a qualitative approach and one with both qualitative and quantitative approach.

 Results: The analysis resulted in six themes, these were the result of the study. The six themes were, “to be seen an confirmed”, “good communication”, “continuous information”, “availability and continuity”, “to participate” and “to share responsibility with the staff”.

 Conclusion: As a nurse we come in contact with relatives of patients in a palliative setting in any form. Our result is useful in all types of care not only in palliative care. It´s much a question of attitude in our performance and attitude is such a large and vital component in health care.
