When life takes a new direction : A qualitative content analysis about young women's experiences of receiving a cancer diagnosis described on blogs (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning

Bakgrund: När en ung kvinna mitt i livet drabbas av ett cancerbesked kan detta påverka kvinnans syn på livet. Genom att läsa bloggar om cancer skrivna av unga kvinnor kommer sjuksköterskan närmare den vårdsökandes personliga upplevelse. Denna ökade kunskap ska ge sjuksköterskan en ökad förståelse för vad som är viktigt för unga kvinnors hantering av ett cancerbesked.

Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva unga kvinnors upplevelser när de fått ett cancerbesked.

Metod: Detta är en kvalitativ studie gjord på bloggar. Studien vill belysa hur unga kvinnor upplever att ha fått ett cancerbesked. Analysen sker utifrån en förbestämd vald teori, i denna studie teorin KASAM. Datainsamlingen gjordes via ung cancers hemsida. Totalt resulterade det i 15 bloggar som användes till studien. I utvalda bloggar söktes inlägg om cancerbeskedet fram.

Resultat: Studiens resultat har gett två kategorier, känsloladdad tid och betydelsen av stöd vid bearbetning av ett cancerbesked. Till dessa har det framkommit fyra subkategorier.

Slutsats: Känsloladdad tid och betydelsen av stöd i samband med bearbetning av ett cancerbesked är upplevelser som uppstår i samband med att unga kvinnor drabbas av ett cancerbesked. Det är viktigt att sjuksköterskor har denna kunskap för att kunna bemöta och ge en så god omvårdnad som möjligt när de möter unga kvinnor som fått ett cancerbesked. För att förstå hur känslorna vid ett cancerbesked hör ihop med känslan av sammanhang, KASAM.

Objective: The aim was to describe young women's experiences when they have received a cancer diagnosis.

Method: The study is a qualitative content analysis using a deductive approach, where blogs are studied. The analysis is based on a pre-selected theory, in this study the theory sense of coherence (SOC). The collection of data was made from ungcancer.se website. In total this resulted in 15 blogs that are used for the study. The search for posts where cancer diagnosis was presented was done in selected blogs.

Results: The results of the study are two categories, a time of emotional atmosphere and the importance of support while processing the information about a cancer diagnosis. To these categories four subcategories have appeared.

Conclusion: The time of emotional atmosphere and the importance of support in the processing of a cancer diagnosis is the emotions that arise in connection with young women who are affected by a cancer diagnosis. It is important that nurses have the knowledge to respond and provide the best care possible when they meet young women who have had a cancer diagnosis. Understanding of how emotions at a cancer diagnosis are associated with a sense of context, SOC.
