Abstract [en]

More people are likely to be diagnosed with cancer and the number of people living with cancer is expected to increase, which means that patients live longer with cancer and different treatments. All patients in Sweden should have access to a nurse navigator to facilitate the cancer trajectory. The purpose of this literature review was to delineate patients' experiences of the care given by the nurse navigator. The result is based upon twelve scientific articles included in this review. The results show that the experiences of the patients can be divided into four different categories: emotional support- being present and offering supportive talks, support for physical symptoms- counseling and relief from symptoms due to illness and treatments, educational support- receiving information and knowledge about the disease and cancer trajectory and coordination support- collaboration with other healthcare professionals involved in patients´care. The result shows that the experiences of the patients were mainly positive and they received the care that was the aim of introducing nurse navigators in Sweden. It is important to continue doing research of the care given by the nurse navigator to ensure that patients with cancer are receiving evidenced based care.

Abstract [sv]

Antalet människor som drabbas av cancer och som lever med cancer förväntas öka, vilket innebär att patienter lever längre med cancersjukdom och olika behandlingar. Alla patienter med cancer skall i Sverige ha tillgång till en kontaktsjuksköterska för att underlätta för patienten genom vårdprocessen. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva patienters erfarenheter av kontaktsjuksköterskans omvårdnad inom cancervården. Tolv vetenskapliga artiklar inkluderades och ligger till grund för resultatet. Resultatet visade att patienternas erfarenheter av kontaktsjuksköterskans omvårdnad kunde delas in i fyra kategorier: emotionellt stöd - att finnas till hands och ge stödjande samtal, stöd vid fysiska besvär- råd och lindring av symptom på grund av sjukdom och behandling, kunskapsstöd - information och utbildning om sjukdom och vårdprocessen och samordningsstöd - samarbete med andra vårdgivare delaktiga i patientens vård. Resultatet visade att patienternas erfarenheter av kontaktsjuksköterskans omvårdnad i huvudsak var positiva och att de fick den omvårdnad som var syftet med införandet av kontaktsjuksköterskefunktionen i Sverige. Fortsatt forskning om kontaktsjuksköterskans omvårdnad inom cancervården ses som betydelsefullt för att säkerställa att evidensbaserad omvårdnad erbjuds patienter med cancersjukdom.
