Patients' experiences of information before a surgical intervention (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inför en operation med generell anestesi upplever en stor del av patienterna oro som uttrycker sig på olika sätt. För att patienten ska kunna uppleva trygghet och delaktighet i sin vård är en god vårdrelation mellan anestesisjukskörskan och patienten centralt. Genom information kan patientens oro minska samt upplevelse av trygghet öka. Syftet med studien var att belysa patientens upplevelse av patientinformationen. Studien utfördes med kvalitativ ansats med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Studien inkluderade fyra patienter som var klassificerade enligt ASA 1-2 och var mellan 18 och 65 år. Akuta operationer exkluderades. Materialet analyserades med hjälp av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys och två kategorier, upplevelse av information och anhörigas på verkan framkom. Resultatet visade att patienter upplevde att god information angående anestesin skapade trygghet hos patienter och därigenom mindre oro inför operation. Anhörigas stöd bidrog också till ökad trygghet men kunde också vara en källa till oro beroende på anhörigas tidigare erfarenheter. På grund av varierande upplevelser hos olika patienter angående information finns ett behov av vidare fördjupningar i ämnet.

Abstract [en]

Before a surgical procedure with general anaesthesia, it is common for a variety of patients to experience anxiety and fear. Establishing a professional relationship between the nurse anaesthetic and the patient is essential in order for the patient to feel safe and involved in his or her own care. Keeping the patient informed helps reducing anxiety and fear and increases the patients’ experience of feeling safe. The aim of this thesis was to illuminate patients’ experiences of the information before a surgical intervention. The thesis was designed with a qualitative design, thus qualitative content analysis was used for the data analysis. Four patients classified as ASA-class 1-2, and between the ages of 18 and 65 were included. Urgent surgeries were excluded. Semi structured interviews were used to obtain the data, where two categories emerged, the experience of information and the effect of relatives and close acquaintances. The results showed the patients experienced a feeling of being safe and thereby experienced a reduced amount of anxiety and fear before the surgical procedure. Relatives and close acquaintances could enforce the patients’ feeling of being safe but could also be a source of anxiety and fear depending on their experience prior to the patients care. Due to different patients’ experiences the need involving the information there is a need for further studies.
