Being the sibling of a child with cancer : - The healthy child´s need for support (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syskon till barn med cancer ägnas lite tid inom hälso- och sjukvården. De är ofta emotionellt försummade av hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal samt närstående. Syftet med studien var att belysa behovet av stöd hos syskon till barn med cancer. Metoden var en litteraturstudie innehållande totalt 16 vetenskapliga artiklar. Artiklarna var både av kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats. Det framkom i re- sultatet att syskon till barn med cancer upplevde känslor av oro, ångest, avundsjuka, ilska, irritation, skuld, ensamhet, nedstämdhet och symptom på de- pression. Hos de friska syskonen som fick stöd minskade de negativa känslorna markant. Det är av yttersta vikt att sjuksköterskan uppmärksammar behovet av stöd hos syskonen och att stödet individ- anpassas. Sjuksköterskan behöver kunskap i hur de tar reda på vilket behov av stöd de friska syskonen har. Dessutom behövs kunskap om konkreta stödåt- gärder som sjuksköterskan kan använda.
