The care of chronic non-malignant pain : -nurses and patients experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att belysa sjuksköterskors och patienters upplevelser av vården vid långvarig icke-malign smärta.

Metod: Den föreliggande uppsatsen har gjorts som en litteraturstudie där tolv vetenskapliga artiklar har analyserats.

Resultat: Sjuksköterskor upplevde smärtbedömningen som en utmaning och ansåg att när de inte trodde på patientens smärtbeskrivning, var det ett hinder för en bra bedömning. Patienterna upplevde att de ofta blev misstrodda av vårdpersonalen och betonade vikten av att bli trodd. Det var viktigt för patienterna att få en diagnos och att hänsyn togs till deras önskan om vad behandlingen skulle resultera i. Patienterna upplevde att deras mål och vårdpersonalens mål med behandlingen inte alltid stämde överens. Sjuksköterskorna upplevde att utbildningen inte förberedde dem för att ta hand om patienter med långvarig smärta och att kunskapen om icke-farmakologiska behandlingsmetoder var bristfällig. Behandling med opioider var en komplex fråga. Sjuksköterskorna kände sig ofta obekväma i att använda opioider, medan patienterna inte ville begränsa möjligheten till adekvat smärtlindring.

Slutsats: Det finns ett behov av fördjupad kunskap hos sjuksköterskorna om vården vid långvarig smärta.

Abstract [en]

Aim: To elucidate nurses and patients experiences of the care of chronic non-malignant pain.

Method: This thesis was a literature review. Twelve articles have been analyzed.

Results: Nurses experienced pain assessment as a challenge. Nurses felt that a barrier to pain assessment was when nurses did not believe in patients’ description of their pain. Patients experienced that they often were mistrusted by healthcare providers and emphasized the importance of believing in them. It was important for patients to receive diagnosis and that their desire regarding the results of the treatment was considered. Patients sometimes experienced a discrepancy between their own goals with the treatment and that of the healthcare providers. Nurses thought that their education did not prepare them properly in how to take care of patients with chronic pain and they had poor knowledge about non- pharmacological treatments. Treatments with opioids were a complex issue. Nurses often felt uncomfortable in using opioids, while patients wanted no restrictions in their strive for adequate pain relief.

Conclusion: There is a need for deeper knowledge among nurses about how to care for patients with chronic non-malignant pain.
