Waiting for prostate cancer treatment : The coping process for patients with prostate cancer before medical treatment (English)
Abstract [sv]

Varje år diagnostiseras 10 000 män med sjukdomen prostatacancer i Sverige. Att drabbas av sjukdomen prostatacancer är emotionellt ansträngande. Väntetiden vad gäller behandling för patienter med prostatacancer är lång. Detta gör att patienter med prostatacancer lever med sjukdomen prostata-cancer och känslorna kopplade till diagnosen prostatacancer under en lång tid. Syftet med den aktuella studien var att beskriva copingprocessen för patienter med prostatacancer innan medicinsk behandling. Metoden som använts till studien var en litteraturstudie baserad på 15 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet visade att den kognitiva bedömningen av sjukdomen prostatacancer präglades av den information som patienter med prostata-cancer fick. Den kognitiva bedömningen av sjukdomen prostatacancer påverkades också av ålder och tid efter diagnos. Copingresurser som hade betydelse för patienter med prostatacancer var socialt stöd, personlighet och psykisk hälsa. De copingstrategier som användes av patienter med prostatacancer var främst emotionellt fokuserade. Patienter med prostatacancer är under stor emotionell belastning. Information och socialt stöd från vårdpersonal hjälper patienter med prostatacancer att hantera den emotionella belastningen. Ytterligare forskning krävs för att identifiera effektiva copingstrategier i ett tidigt stadium av diagnosen prostatacancer.

Abstract [en]

Every year 10 000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in Sweden. Affection of the disease is emotionally strenuous. The wait for treatment among patients diagnosed for prostate cancer is long. This result in patients diagnosed with prostate cancer living with the disease and the emotions associated with the diagnosis of prostate cancer for an extended time. The aim of the current study was to describe the coping process used by patients diagnosed with prostate cancer prior to treatment. The method of the current study was a literature study based on 15 scientific articles. The results indicated that appraisal of prostate cancer was influenced by the information that patients diagnosed with prostate cancer received. Furthermore appraisal of prostate cancer was affected by age and time since diagnosis. Social support, personality and mental health were coping resources that were of significance to patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. Emotion focused coping strategies were primarily used by patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. Patients with prostate cancer are emotionally distressed. Information and social support from healthcare personnel reduces the emotional distress. Further research should investigate what coping strategies are effective in an early stage of prostate cancer diagnosis.
