Stand next to the end of life : Nurses' experiences of working in palliative care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Varje år är omkring 40 miljoner människor runt om i världen i behov av palliativ vård. Att som sjuksköterska vårda patienter som befinner sig i livet slut är en speciell vårdform. Målet för vården inte längre är att bota utan att lindra lidande och stödja patienten i den sista tiden i livet. Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att arbeta i palliativ vård. Metoden som användes var en litteraturstudie som grundades på 13 vetenskapliga artiklar. I resultatet framkom två teman Att göra gott för patient och närstående och Att inte räcka till. Sjuksköterskorna strävar efter att ge personcentrerad omvårdnad, skapa vårdrelationer, vilket bidrar till arbetstillfredställelse. Därför bör mer utbildning inom palliativ vård ingå i sjuksköterskors utbildning för att stärka professionen och sjuksköterskors självkänsla. 

Abstract [en]

Every year there are about 40 million people around the world in need of palliative care. For a nurse it is a special form of care to care for these patients in their end of life. The goal is no longer to cure but to ease and to aid the patient in it's last days of life. In this study, the purpose was to shed light on nurses experiences of working in palliative care. The method used was a literature study based on 13 scientific articles. The result showed two themes, one, To make the patient and their loved ones feel comfortable, and two, To not be enough. The nurses are committed to give personalized care, make care relations, which makes for work satisfaction. Therefore should more education about palliative care be a part of a nurses education, to strengthen the profession, and nurses self-esteem.
