The importance of spirituality and religion when breast cancer is a fact (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att drabbas av bröstcancer är en omtumlande händelse i livet. Religion och andlighet har visat sig spela en viktig roll hos dessa kvinnor. Det är viktigt att förstå skillnader mellan religion och andlighet och att de båda inte hör ihop, utan kan upplevas fria från varandra. Syftet var att belysa betydelsen av andlighet och religion hos kvinnor med bröstcancer. Studien är gjord som en litteraturstudie baserad på empiriska studier där totalt elva vetenskapliga artiklar har granskats. Resultatet visar på skillnader om uppfattningen om Gud och Hans avsikt med människans liv. Likheter förekommer bland de olika religionerna där tron var det centrala. Hos kvinnor som inte var troende spelade andligheten ändå en stor roll, då det sågs som någonting utöver det religiösa. Det är viktigt med fortsatt forskning inom området för att skapa bredare kunskaper om religion och andlighet och dess betydelse för sjuka patienter. Det är betydelsefullt för sjuksköterskor att vara medvetna om de andliga och religiösa behoven.

Abstract [en]

To suffer from breast cancer is a life changing experience. Religion and spirituality have been shown to play an important role for the diagnosed women. It is important to understand the differences between religion and spirituality and that the two are not related. Hence, they can be experienced separate from each other. The aim was to highlight the importance of spirituality and religion for women with breast cancer. The study is designed as a literature review based on empirical studies where a total of eleven scientific articles have been reviewed. The results show differences on the perception of God and His purpose for human life. Similarities exist among various religions in which faith was central. In women who were not believers spirituality still played a big role since it was seen as something beyond the religion. It is important with continued research to create broader knowledge in religion and spirituality and its importance to ill patients. It is important for nurses to be aware of the spiritual and religious needs.
