Behind closed doors : Nurses’ experiences of providingpalliative care in the home (English)
Abstract [sv]

Årligen avlider cirka 90 000 personer i Sverige, varav 80 % är i behov av palliativ vård. Den palliativa vården bedrevs tidigare till större del på sjukhus men forskning påvisar att fler idag önskar att dö i det egna hemmet. I takt med att befolkningen blir äldre ökar kraven på den palliativa vården. För att kunna ge palliativa patienter omvårdnad av god kvalitet är det viktigt att sjuksköterskan innehar fördjupad kunskap kring arbetets innebörd. Syftet med studien var att beskriva sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att utföra palliativ omvårdnad i hemmet. En systematisk litteraturstudie genomfördes och elva kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar valdes ut. Resultatet mynnade ut i fyra kategorier: Vårda i någon annans hem, Samspel med patienten och dess anhöriga, Vårdorganisationens påverkan på omvårdnaden samt Stöd och teamarbete. Resultatet visade att omvårdnad i patienters hem ansågs vara ett privilegium men krävde mycket från sjuksköterskornas egna känslor. Samarbete och goda relationer mellan sjuksköterska, patient och anhöriga var viktiga faktorer för god omvårdnad. Stress och tidsbrist påverkade omvårdnaden negativt medan samarbete i team upplevdes positivt. Att få stöd ansågs även viktigt. Ytterligare forskning kring vårdformen krävs för att synliggöra de krav och utmaningar sjuksköterskan ställs inför, samt för att främja omvårdnad av god kvalitet.

Abstract [en]

Approximately 90 000 people die annually in Sweden, and 80 % are in need of palliative care. Palliative care was previously mostly conducted in hospitals. Research today shows that more people wish to die in their own homes. As the population gets older the demands for palliative care are increasing. In order to provide palliative care of good quality, it’s important that the nurse has knowledge about the meaning of the work. The aim was to describe nurses' experiences of performing palliative care in the home. A systematic literature review was conducted and eleven qualitative scientific articles were selected. The result culminated in four categories: Nursing in another person’s home, Interaction with the patient and their next-of-kins, The caring organization’s impact on the nursing care and Support and teamwork. The result showed that nursing in the patient’s home was seen as a privilege but demanded a lot from the nurses' own feelings. Cooperation and good relations between the nurse, patient and their next-of-kins were important factors for good care. Stress and lack of time affected the care negatively, while cooperating in teams was experienced positively. To get support was also seen as an important part. Further research about this caring form is required to make the demands and challenges of the nurse visible, as well as to promote care of good quality.
