SAMMANFATTNING                                                                                            

Syftet med interventionsstudien var att undersöka om ROAG (revised oral assessment guide) munbedömningsinstrument förbättrade sjuksköterskor bedömning av cancerpatienters munhälsa på en palliativ vårdenhet.

Metoden hade en kvasiexperimentell design med en journalgranskning före och efter en intervention. Interventionen bestod av en kortare utbildning av munhälsa samt införandet av ROAG munbedömningsinstrumentet.

Resultatet visade att både bedömningar och åtgärder av munhälsan har ökat statistiskt signifikant jämfört med före interventionen på den palliativa vårdenheten, resultatet visar också att det inte alltid finns rätt koppling mellan symtom och åtgärd.

Slutsats ROAG munbedömningsinstrument är ett bra verktyg för sjuksköterskor att använda för att bedöma munhälsan på en palliativ vårdenhet, men det räcker inte bara med ROAG munbedömningsinstrument utan det behövs kontinuerlig utbildning för att förbättra bedömningar och åtgärder .

Abstract [en]

ABSTRACT

The purpose of the intervention study was to investigate whether ROAG (Revised oral assessment guide) improved nurses’ estimation of cancer patients’ oral health at a palliative care unit.

The method was of a quantitative design with a quasi-experimental survey. Medical records were studied before and after an intervention, which consisted of a brief lecture on oral health and an introduction of ROAG.

The results show significant increase in both assessment and measure of oral health after the intervention at the palliative care unit compared to before the intervention. The result also shows that the link between symptom and action does not always correspond to each other.

 

In conclusion, ROAG oral assessment is a great instrument for nurses to evaluate oral health at a palliative care unit, although it is not enough. Continuous education is required to improve evaluation and intervention.
