Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund; Många patienter inom palliativ vård lider av svår smärta. Ofta ger den farmakologiska behandlingen inte tillräklig smärtlindring vilket har lett till ett ökat intresse för komplementära smärtlindringsmetoder inom palliativ vård. Syfte; Att beskriva effekten av komplementära smärtlindringsmetoder inom palliativ vård. Metod; Studien genomfördes som en litteraturöversikt och baseras på tretton kvantitativa artiklar. Resultat; Massage, akupunktur och musikterapi har studerats då dessa behandlingar är godkända i Sverige. Artiklarna visar en signifikant smärtlindring efter behandlingarna men varaktigheten varierade mellan grupperna. Musikterapi och massage har främst en kortverkande effekt medan akupunktur har en långverkande effekt som kräver upprepade behandlingar. Slutsats; De komplementära behandlingarna vid sidan av farmakologisk behandling tyder på att patienterna får en bättre smärtlindring och livskvalitet. Behandlingarna är enkla att utföra och inga biverkningar påvisas. Samtliga komplementära behandlingar skulle därför kunna vara ett alternativ på palliativa enheter och inom hemsjukvården.

Abstract [en]

Background; Many patients within palliative care suffer from severe pain. Despite farmacological treatment some patients still experience insufficient pain relief. This has led to an increased interest in complementary therapies within palliative care. Aim; To describe the pain relieving effects of complementary therapies within palliative care. Method; This study is carried out as a literature review based on thirteen articles with quantitative approach. Results; Massage, music therapy and acupuncture has been studied as these treatments are accepted by Swedish law. The results showed a significant improvement of pain after the treatments. Duration of the  pain relieving effects varied between the different methods. Music therapy and massage showed an immidiate but short term effect. Acupuncture showed a long term effect that needed to be repeated for best effect. Conclusion; Complementary methods may together with farmacological treatment improve the pain relief and offer a better end of life.
