Upplevelsen av livskvalitet hos män med prostatacancer

– en litteraturstudie

                                       

Abstrakt

Bakgrund: Prostatacancer är den vanligast förekommande cancerformen bland män i Sverige. Många män lever med biverkningar efter behandlingen, vilket kan påverka deras liv negativt och hur de upplever sin livskvalitet.

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa upplevelsen av livskvalitet hos män med prostatacancer.

Metod: En litteraturstudie där åtta vetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats har granskats, sammanställts och analyserats.

Resultat: Tre huvudkategorier med sex kategorier identifierades: Bemästrande av situationen – Strävan efter väbefinnande genom kontroll, Insikt i sjukdomens påverkan. Adaption till livssituation – En förändringsprocess i livet, En kamp för sinnesro. Manlig identitet – Den förändrade sexualiteten påverkar identiteten, Relationer som stöd.  

Konklusion: Upplevelsen av livskvalitet varierar från individ till individ och påverkas av bl.a. biverkningar efter behandling och synen på sin livssituation.

Författarna tror att litteraturstudien kan medvetandegöra sjuksköterskor om vilken påverkan prostatacancer har på männens livskvalitet. Genom att ställa personliga frågor kan sjuksköterskan ge god vård utifrån varje persons individuella behov.

 

Nyckelord: Prostatacancer, livskvalitet, män, anpassning

The experience of quality of life in men with prostate cancer

A literature study

 

Abstract

Background: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in Sweden.

Many men live with treatment related side effects which can cause a negative effect on their lives and the experience of their quality of life.

Aim: The aim was to illuminate the experience of the quality of life in men with prostate cancer.

Method: A literature study of eight articles with qualitative approach. The articles result have been reviewed, compiled and analyzed.

Results: Three main categories and six categories were identified: Control of the situation – quest for wellbeing through control, insight in the impact of the disease. Adaptation to life situation – a reconstruction of life, a struggle for peace of mind. Male identity – the altered sexuality affects the identity, the support of relationships.

Conclusion: The experience of quality of life varies between individuals and is affected by side effects after treatment and the way they are looking at their life situation. The authors believe that this literature study can raise awareness among nurses regarding the impact prostate cancer has on men’s quality of life. By asking personal questions the nurse can provide good nursing care based on each person’s individual need.
