Abstract [sv]

800 000 människor runt om i världen, beräknas avsluta sitt liv 2014. I de flesta fall, är den bakomliggande förklaringen, psykiatrisk. Depression och missbruk hör till de vanligaste orsakerna till suicidförsök eller fullbordat suicid, och i många fall har den suicidala patienten haft kontakt med psykiatrin kort innan suicidförsöket. Att arbeta med suicidbenägna patienter kräver specialiserad kunskap inom psykiatrisk omvårdvårdnad, och goda kunskaper kring det preventiva arbetet inom slutenvården. Syftet med studien var att utforska sjuksköterskans upplevelser kring preventionsarbetet med suicidbenägna patienter inom slutenvården. Studien är en kvalitativ intervjustudie med fenomenologisk ansats. Resultatet visar att det oftast är svårt att avgöra vad som orsakar ett suicidförsök, men att det alltid skapar funderingar kring den egna kompetensen, om vad man som ansvarig sjuksköterska missat och vad man kunnat göra bättre. Det är viktigt att ventilera och bearbeta ett suicidförsök eller suicid, för att bibehålla ett korrekt förhållningssätt och synen på sitt arbete.

 

Abstract [en]

Approximately 800 000 people around the world, are calculated to commit suicide in 2014. In most cases, the underlying explanation is psychiatric disorders. Depression and substance-use are the most common causes of suicide-attempts or completed suicide, and in many cases the suicidal patient has been in contact with psychiatric services short before the suicide-attempt. Dealing with suicidal patients in daily work demands specialized knowledge in psychiatric care, and also good knowledge concerning prevention-work in inpatient wards. The purpose of this study was to explore the nurses’ experiences in prevention-work concerning suicidal patients in inpatient wards. The study was a qualitative interview-study with a phenomenological approach. Results show that it is often hard to decide what causes suicide, but that being confronted with suicidal patients creates concerns about one’s own competence, about what the nurse might have missed and what could have been done in a better way. It is of importance to ventilate and process the experience of a suicide attempt or completed suicide, to maintain a correct approach and view of one’s own work as a nurse.
