Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Multipel skleros (MS) är en vanlig neurologisk autoimmun sjukdom hos kvinnor i Nordamerika och Europa. I Sverige har cirka 18 000 människor MS. Sjukdomen är obotlig och kan påverka personens livskvalité. Syfte: Att beskriva vuxna kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med MS. Metod: En litteraturöversikt baserat på 12 kvalitativa artiklar. Resultat: MS påverkar personernas fysiska, psykiska och sociala välbefinnande. Negativa och positiva upplevelser förekom hos kvinnorna. Symtom påverkar personernas fysiska förmåga att utföra dagliga uppgifter. Jaget och identiteten utmanas samt olika känslor förekommer vid MS. Det sociala livet påverkas negativt då kontakter och aktiviteter reduceras. Slutsats: Resultatet ger sjuksköterskor en ökad förståelse och kunskap om hur personerna med MS upplever sin sjukdom och därmed kan sjuksköterskor lättare bemöta personerna i omvårdnaden.

Abstract [en]

Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common neurological autoimmune disease in women in North America and Europe. There are approximately 18 000 people with MS in Sweden. The disease is incurable and may affect the person's quality of life. Aim: Is to de-scribe adult women's experiences of living with MS. Method: A literature review based on 12 qualitative articles. Results: MS influences a person’s physical, mental and social well-being. Negative and positive experiences occurred in women. Symptoms affect people’s physical ability to perform daily tasks. The identities are challenged and different emotions occur in people with MS. The social life is negatively affected as contacts and activities are reduced. Conclusion: The results give registered nurses a greater understanding and a wider knowledge of how people with MS experience their illness therefore giving registered nurses an easier way of responding to people with MS.
