Relatives´ experiences of suffering when living with a person diagnosed with cancer (English)
Abstract [sv]

Var tredje person får beskedet cancer. Det här innebär att en hel familj kan komma att påverkas, vilket kan skapa ett lidande i förhållande till vården, sjukdomen, livet och vardagen, samt det existentiella. Syftet med studien är att belysa lidandet hos närstående till en cancersjuk person. Material samlades in genom att läsa nio utvalda bloggar där närstående skrev om sitt lidande i relation till den cancersjuka personen. I studien användes en deduktiv analys utifrån Erikssons (1994) teori om lidande. Resultatet beskrivs utifrån begreppen vårdlidande, sjukdomslidande, existentiellt lidande och livslidande. Det framkom att närstående upplevde hopplöshet och frustration i förhållande till nonchalant personal med bristande stöd och bemötande. Ekonomisk påfrestning och ett ansträngt förhållande mellan partnerna var något som framkom tydligt i både resultatet och tidigare forskning. För att minska lidandet hos närstående krävs mer kunskap om familjefokuserad omvårdnad hos vårdpersonal. Det behövs mer kunskap hos sjuksköterskor om hur fokus ska läggas på familjen. Detta för att närstående ska kunna hantera sin sorg, sitt lidande och för att inte själva drabbas av sjukdom på grund av att de mår dåligt, vilket även belyses i tidigare studier (Wallskär, 2010a). 

Abstract [en]

Every third person will be diagnosed with cancer. This means that the whole family around the sick person will get involved and affected by the situation. It will create a suffering, not only in the relatives’ lives but also in relation to the care, the cancer disease and the existential part. The purpose of this study is to highlight the suffering of relatives living with a person diagnosed with cancer. Material was collected by reading nine selected blogs which was written by relatives about their suffering when living with a person sick with cancer.  The study used a deductive analysis based on Erikson's (1994) theory of suffering. The results are described based on the concepts of suffering to the care, sickness suffering, existential suffering and suffering in life. It was revealed that relatives experienced hopelessness and frustration in relation to casually staff with lack of support and treatment. Economic strain and a strained relationship between the partners who deteriorated was something that emerged clearly in both results and previous research. More knowledge is needed by health professionals on family focused care to reduce the suffering of relatives. More knowledge is needed among nurses on how to focus effort on the family. The related parties should be able to cope with their grief and their suffering without getting ill because they feel bad, which is shown happening in previous studies (Wallskär, 2010a).
