The family experience when a family member is suffering from Anorexia Nervosa : A Systematic literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva familjens upplevelser när en familjemedlem är drabbad av Anorexia Nervosa (AN). Metod: Systematisk litteraturstudie användes som metod. Sökningar efter artiklar som svarade mot syftet gjordes i databaserna CINAHL, PubMed och PsycINFO. Åtta artiklar identifierades; fyra av dessa var kvalitativa och fyra var kvantitativa. En innehållsanalys utfördes på de kvalitativa artiklarna för att analysera och förtydliga de framtagna artiklarnas resultat och en metaanalys användes till de kvantitativa artiklarna. Resultat: Resultaten som framkom visade på att hela familjen påverkas av att leva med en familjemedlem som är drabbad av AN. De upplever ofta en inre konflikt med sig själva som ofta leder till ångest och depression. Föräldrar och syskon upplever att de inte får den hjälp och det stöd från vårdpersonal som de önskar. De teman som framkom var: upplevelse av ansvar, upplevelse av psykisk påfrestning och upplevda behov. Slutsatser: När en familjemedlem har AN påverkas hela familjen. För samtliga familjemedlemmar kan det vara av vikt att de får det stöd och den hjälp som de behöver för att kunna förstå och hantera sin situation. AN kan innebära många olika upplevelser och känslor för familjemedlemmarna. Mer forskning kring fäders upplevelser skulle kunna tillföra ytterligare aspekter som skulle kunna vara till gagn för sjuksköterskans bemötande.

Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the family's experiences of living with a member who is suffering from Anorexia Nervosa (AN). Methods: A systematic literature review was used as a method. Searches for articles that met the objective were made in the databases CINAHL, PubMed and PsycINFO. Eight articles were identified, four of which were qualitative and four quantitative. A content analysis was performed on the qualitative articles to analyze and clarify the articles produced results and a meta-analysis was used for the quantitative articles. Results: The results that emerged showed that the whole family is affected by living with a family member who is suffering from AN. They often experience an inner conflict with themselves that often leads to anxiety and depression. Parents and siblings feel they do not get the help and support from health professionals as they desire. The themes that emerged were: sense of responsibility, experience of psychological distress and perceived needs. Conclusions: When a family member has AN, the whole family is affected. It may be important for all family members to get the support and help they need to understand and deal with their situation. AN can mean many different experiences and feelings of family members. More research into the experiences of fathers with AN could bring additional aspects that could be of benefit to the nursing care.
