"Are you going to take care of me?” : A literary review about socially assistive robots in a dementia care setting (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Demens är en sjukdom som drabbar en stor del av en alltmer åldrande befolkning i världen. Patienter som lider av demens kan drabbas av olika symtom som t.ex. kommunikationssvårigheter, personlighetsförändringar samt emotionell avtrubbning. Dessa symtom kan vara svåra att behandla och påverkar patienter, anhöriga och vårdpersonal. Tidigare forskning har visat att socialt assisterande robotar kan ha en god inverkan på människor som lider av demenssjukdom.

Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie är att beskriva vilken inverkan på hälsan socialt assisterande robotar har hos patienter som lider av demenssjukdom.Metod: En litteraturstudie grundat på tio vetenskapliga artiklar, som tagits fram utifrån syftet. Resultat: Resultatet presenterades utifrån två kategorier, Psykosocial hälsa och Livskvalitet. Interventioner med socialt assisterande robotar hade en god inverkan på den psykosociala hälsan, medan livskvalitet påverkades med varierat resultat beroende på vilket stadie av demens som den drabbade befinner sig i. Slutsats: Sammanfattningsvis ges ett intryck av att socialt assisterande robotar kan hjälpa vårdpersonal i deras omvårdnadsarbete för patienter med demens, och att dessa robotar har en övervägande god inverkan på demensdrabbades hälsa. Betydelse: Kunskap om vad socialt assisterande robotar har för inverkan på hälsa hos demensdrabbade är angeläget, för att i framtiden kunna implementera omvårdnadsåtgärder med denna typ av robotar.

Abstract [en]

Background: Dementia is a disease which affects a large part of an increasingly aging population in the world. Patients suffering from dementia may suffer from various symptoms such as communication difficulties, personality changes and emotional blunting. These symptoms can be difficult to treat and affects patients, relatives and health professionals. Previous research has shown that socially assistive robots could have a good effect on people suffering from dementia. Aim: The purpose of this study is to describe the impact on health of socially assistive robots in patients suffering from dementia. Method: A literature study based on ten scientific articles, which has been devised based on the purpose. Results: The results are presented on the basis of two categories, psychosocial health and quality of life. Interventions with socially assistive robots had a good impact on the psychosocial health, while quality of life was affected with varied results depending on the stage of dementia that the patient is in. Conclusion: In conclusion, the given impression is that socially assistive robots could help health professionals in their nursing work for patients with dementia, and that these robots have a predominantly good effect on demented people’s health. Significance: The knowledge of how socially assistive robots impact the health of people who suffers from dementia is imperative, to eventually be able to implement nursing interventions with this type of robots.
