Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of the current study was to investigate nurses’ experiences of caring for palliative patients in palliative home care, and to examine the coping strategies they use.

Method: The study was empirical descriptive with qualitative approach. The data was collected by nine semi-structured interviews and analyzed by using manifest content analysis.

Result: By analysing data three categories: Positive experiences of palliative home care, Stressful experiences of palliative home care and Problem-focused coping strategies, and 15 subcategories, were distinguished.

Conclusion: Experiences of palliative home care were both of positive and challenging characters. Stressful situations were managed by problem-focused coping strategies. Nurses are in need of the work situation at home to become more ergonomic and designed to protect the nurse’s physical wellbeing. The present study was of a too small character to be transferable, thus similar studies on a larger scale are required in the future.
