Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Att leva med epilepsi leder till ökad psykisk belastning. Personer med epilepsi har ofta bristande kunskap om sjukdomen och behovet av utbildning är stort. Personen behöver lära sig symtom och sätt att undvika situationer som kan trigga anfall. Vårdpersonal har en viktig roll när det gäller utbildning, rådgivning och stöd till personer med epilepsi och deras familjer. Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt var att beskriva och utvärdera effekter av utbildning till personer med epilepsi och/eller dennes närstående. För att besvara detta valdes litteraturöversikt som metod bestående av vetenskapliga artiklar med kvantitativ ansats. Resultatet visade att det framgångsrikt går att utbilda personer och/eller dess närstående i kunskap om epilepsi och egenvårdsförmåga. Livskvalitén för personer med epilepsi tycks dock inte påverkas av utbildning. Slutsatsen var att utbildning tycks ha en god effekt för personer med epilepsi avseende kunskap och egenvårdsförmåga. Vidare forskning med randomiserad, kontrollerade studier med större urval skulle vara av stort värde för att öka kunskapen om effekter av utbildning vid epilepsi ytterligare. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Living with epilepsy leads to increased psychological stress. People with epilepsy often have insufficient knowledge about the disease and the need for education is essential. The person needs to learn the symptoms and ways to avoid exposing themselves to situations that may trigger seizures. Health professionals have an important role in education, counseling and support to people with epilepsy and their families. The aim of this literature overview was to describe and evaluate the effects of education to people with epilepsy and / or its family. To answer this, a literature overview was selected as a method consisting of scientific articles with a quantitative approach. The result showed that to educate individuals and / or its family in the knowledge of epilepsy and self-care ability could be successfully be carried out. Quality of life in people with epilepsy does not seem to get effect of patient education.   The conclusion was that education seems to have positive effect for people with epilepsy on knowledge and self-care ability. Continued research with randomized, controlled trials with larger sample would be of great value to further increase the knowledge about the effects of education in people living with epilepsy.
