The need of support for young adults during treatment of cancer : Qualitative content analysis from blogs (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Att drabbas av cancer som ung vuxen innebär ett avbrott i livsprocessen och det kan upplevas som en katastrofal förändring. När en människa upplever att helheten hotas uppstår ett lidande, unga vuxna som drabbas av allvarlig sjukdom kan uppleva traumatisk kris. Det är viktigt att i ett tidigt stadium fånga upp och stötta unga vuxna med en cancerdiagnos eftersom lidandet kan lindras under sjukdomsprocessen. Individer som får social och professionellt stöd orkar engagera sig i återhämtningsprocessen och kan uppnå bättre livskvalité. Syfte: Studiens syfte var att belysa unga vuxnas behov av stöd under behandling av cancersjukdom. Metod: Studien har en kvalitativ ansats och kvalitativ innehållsanalys användes för att analysera bloggarna. Datamaterialet bestod av fem svenska bloggar publicerade på ung cancers webbsida. Resultat: Unga vuxna med en cancersjukdom upplevde att socialt stöd var värdefullt under cancerbehandling. Individerna upplevde emotionellt, informativt, praktisk och bekräftande stöd från familj och närstående samt från individer i liknande situation. Det professionella stödet uppskattades när individerna betraktades som en helhet dock visades det vara negativt när det brast i kommunikationen mellan patient och vårdgivare. Slutsats: Unga vuxna som drabbades av en cancersjukdom hade behov av både socialt och professionellt stöd för att hantera sjukdomen. 

Abstract [en]

Background: To develop cancer as an adolescent or young adult means a break in a critical stage of the life process, and can be a devastating experience for the patient. When an individual feels their current existence is threatened there is an immediate crisis, followed by traumatization and suffering. This seems to be especially true for young adults. It is important to catch and support the young adults at an early stage in their cancer diagnosis because this can lead to a relief throughout the disease process. Individuals who receive social and professional support are able to engage themselves in their recovery process, and can achieve a better quality of life. Objective: The aim of this study was to highlight young adults' needs for support during treatment of cancer. Method: The study has a qualitative approach and a qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the blogs. The data consisted of five Swedish blogs published on young cancers (Ung Cancer) website. Results: Young adults with cancer felt that social support was valuable during cancer treatment. The individuals experienced emotional, informative, practical and appraisal support from family and relatives, as well as from individuals in similar situations. The professional support was appreciated when the holistic perspective of the individuals were considered. However, the support was shown to be negative when communication failed between patient and caregiver. Conclusion: Young adults who suffered from cancer were in need of both social and professional support to handle the situation mentally.
