Womens own stories about experiences of care during breast cancer treatment (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Omkring 8000 kvinnor får diagnosen bröstcancer i Sverige varje år. Dessa kvinnor möter vården vid flertalet tillfällen under den tid de behandlas, och deras behov av stöd och information har i flera studier konstaterats vara viktigt. För att möta och förstå dessa kvinnors behov, behöver vi veta mer om hur de upplever vården. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur kvinnor med bröstcancer upplever sin vård. Metod: Studien har gjorts med en innebördsanalys. Den har utförts genom att analysera åtta biografier skrivna av kvinnor med erfarenhet av att själva ha eller ha haft bröstcancer. Resultat: Resultatet visar att kvinnor med bröstcancer vill bli mött som en unik person under tiden som patient. De behöver stöd och bekräftelse från anhöriga och sjukvårdspersonal. De uttrycker också att de vill bli omhändertagna på ett mjukt och varsamt sätt med respekt och utifrån den egna livsvärlden. Konklusioner: Kvinnor med bröstcancer vill bli mött som den unika person de är i mötet med vården. Genom ett större omvårdnadsperspektiv och mer personcentrerad vård kan deras lidande lindras. Nyckelord: bröstcancer, upplevelse, vård

Abstract [en]

Background: About 8000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in Sweden. These women meet nursing care several times during their treatment and their need of support and information is found important in several studies. To meet and understand these women’s needs, we need to know more about how they experience care. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe how women with breast cancer experience their care.  Method: The study, a meaning analysis, has been performed by analysing eight biographies written by women with experiences of having breast cancer. Result: The results show that women with breast cancer want to be seen as a unique person during their time as patient, they need support and confirmation from relatives and from nursing staff. They also express they want to be taken care of in a soft and gentle way with respect and based on their own life-world. Conclusions: Women with breast cancer want to be met as the unique persons they are in meetings with health care. By having a larger nursing perspective and more person-centred care their suffering can be relieved. Keywords: breast cancer, experience, care,
