Sammanfattning

Bakgrund: Cancer ökar succesivt över hela världen. Kvinnors upplevelse av att leva med obotlig cancer beskrivs bland annat som kaos och förtvivlan. Cancer är ett hot mot personens hälsa och har en inverkan på livet, både kroppsligt och känslomässigt. Ju högre känsla av sammanhang desto lättare har kvinnorna att uppskatta livet som pågår runt omkring dem.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva unga kvinnors upplevelse av att leva med obotlig cancer.

Metod: En kvalitativ empirisk innehållsanalys med deduktiv design har använts i studien. Fyra stycken bloggar analyserades. KASAM användes för att strukturera upp komponenterna begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet.

Resultat: I studien framkom det att kvinnor som drabbats av obotlig cancer upplever begriplighet om vårdpersonal informerar och bemöter dem på ett adekvat, professionellt och lyhört sätt. Bloggarna användes som ett redskap för att hantera situationen. Även nära relationer och stöd ger en positiv upplevelse för hanterbarheten. Att umgås med familj och vänner upplevs som meningsfullt.

Slutsats: Känsla av sammanhang är en individuell upplevelse. Beskrivningar av upplevelser kring känsla av sammanhang ger en ökad förståelse för hur vårdpersonal kan främja begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet i mötet med kvinnor som drabbats av obotlig cancer.
