Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate relatives opinions of information, interaction, support, participation and care at a hospice unit. The aim was also to investigate whether there was a difference between women and men.

Method: The study is a descriptive quantitative cross-sectional study. A questionnaire with closed and open-end questions was sent out to 66 relatives to patients who had died at the hospice unit. The closed questions were analyzed with SPSS. A content analyze was used for the open-end questions.

Results: The most of the relatives were fully pleased with information, interaction, support and care. Relatives were most pleased with the interaction with the staff. Almost half of the relatives had wanted to participate more in the care of the patient and they had wanted more information to be able to participate. The men were more pleased with the information than the women. There were no significant differences in the other questions. Many relatives experienced the hospice unit as good.

Conclusion: The study showed that the relatives were pleased with the hospice unit though some relatives were displeased with their participation in the care of the patient. These needs to be improved and further investigation are needed.
