Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva sjuksköterskans upplevelser av plötslig oväntad död relaterat till sig själv och mötet med anhöriga.

Metoden var en beskrivande litteraturstudie baserad på elva vetenskapliga artiklar utifrån databaserna Cinahl och PubMed. En metodologisk granskning genomfördes också av artiklarnas urvalsmetod.

Resultatet visade att sjuksköterskorna upplevde att de saknade utbildning och kunskap i att ta hand om anhöriga vid plötslig oväntad död. De anser att det är deras arbetsuppgift att ta hand om anhöriga till patienter som hastigt avlidit och de beskriver att de upplever detta som tungt och ledsamt på ett personligt plan. För att bearbeta dessa känslor anser sjuksköterskorna att de finner det bästa stödet i att prata med kollegor inom personalgruppen.

Slutsatsen är att en kunskapslucka finns hos sjuksköterskan gällande oväntad död och omhändertagande av anhöriga till patienter som plötsligt avlidit. Adekvat utbildning inom området skulle leda till ökat självförtroende och kompetens i att hantera svåra situationer och därmed ge ett bättre omhändertagande till anhöriga.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe the nurses’ experience of sudden unexpected death related to herself and in the meeting with relatives.

The method was a descriptive study based on eleven scientific articles from the databases Cinahl and PubMed. A methodological examination was conducted by the articles selection method.

The result showed that the nurses felt that they lacked training and knowledge to take care of suddenly bereaved relatives. They considered it their duty to take care of the families of patients who suddenly died and they described it as difficult and sad on a personal level. To process these feelings the nurses’ believe the best way is to talk to colleagues in the staff group.

The conclusion is that there is a gap in knowledge for the nurse regarding unexpected death and the care for the relatives of patients who suddenly died. Adequate education in the area would lead to increased self-confident and competence in dealing with difficult situations and thus provide better care for the relatives.
