Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande litteraturstudie var att beskriva upplevelsen av att vara bärare av meticillin-resistensta Stafylococcus aureus (MRSA) samt att kvalitetsbedöma de valda artiklarnas urval och bortfall. Artikelsökning i databaserna Cinahl, Medline och PsycInfo resulterade i inkludering av 12 artiklar. I resultatet framkom faktorerna: Upplevelsen av att vara smittbärare, MRSA:s påverkan på det dagliga livet, Stöd eller frånvaro av stöd från familj och vänner, Information och kunskap, Bemötande från vårdpersonal samt Upplevelsen av isolering. I resultatet framkom att personer bärare av MRSA upplevde rädsla att smitta andra, framförallt sina familjemedlemmar, och avstod från fysiskt kontakt. Personerna upplevde begränsningar i arbetslivet, i dagliga livet samt begränsningar av fysisk aktivitet. Stöd från familj och vänner hade stora betydelser för personernas anpassning till livet som bärare av MRSA. Flera personer med MRSA upplevde att de hade brister i kunskap och information om MRSA, vilket påverkade dem negativt. Positivt bemötande från vårdpersonal gjorde att personerna anpassade sig lättare till sin situation. Isoleringsvård upplevdes antingen som positiv eller som diskriminerande och en begränsning till deras självständighet. Urvalsprocessen beskrevs i tio artiklar och bortfall beskrevs i elva artiklar. Slutsatsen blev att personer med MRSA upplevde adekvat information om sitt tillstånd som en påverkande faktor vid livsstilsförändring. Brister som uppstod vid kunskapsförmedling, i relationer till vänner och familj samt i bemötandet från vårdpersonal upplevdes som negativa erfarenheter.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe the experience of being a carrier of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and to evaluate the quality of the selected articles sample and dropouts. Articles were search in databases Cinahl, Medline and PsycInfo which resulted in an inclusion of 12 articles. The result showed factors: The experience of being a carrier, MRSA's impact on daily life, Support or absence of support from family and friends, Information and knowledge, Encounter from health professionals and The experience of isolation. The result showed that individuals carrying MRSA experienced fear of infecting others, especially their family members, and refrained from physical contact. Participants experienced restrictions in the workplace, in everyday life, and limitation of physical activity. Support from family and friends had great meaning for persons adjusting to life as carriers of MRSA. Several people with MRSA felt that they were deficient in knowledge and information on MRSA, which affected them adversely. Positive attitude from health workers led to a facilitated adaption to the carriers’ situation. Isolation care was either percieved as a positive experience or caused discrimination in which subjects felt that their autonomy was restricted. The sample process was described in ten articles and dropouts were described in eleven articles. The conclusion of this study was that people with MRSA felt that adequate information about their condition as an influencing factor to lifestyle change. Deficiencies in sharing of knowledge, in relationships with friends and family as well as in the encounter with health professionals were perceived as negative experiences.
