An emotional and tiring work : Nurses' care of children with cancer (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Barncancer skiljer sig från vuxencancer. Orsaker är fortfarande okända och behandlingsprocessen är lång. Viktigt att tänka på är att barn ska fortsatt få vara barn och vara delaktiga i sin vård. Den familjecentrerade vården är en viktig del i vårdandet av sjuka barn. Sjuksköterskans ansvar ligger på att omvårdnad samt kommunikationen anpassas utefter individen. Den palliativa vården av svårt sjuka barn är en påfrestande situation för alla parter. Metod: En kvalitativ litteraturbaserad studie av tidigare genomförd forskning, där tolv vetenskapliga kvalitativa artiklar analyserades. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva sjuksköterskors upplevelser av att vårda barn med en cancersjukdom. Resultat: Det framkom två huvudteman och sex underteman; Arbetet med barn med cancersjukdom, betydelsen av god relation till barn med cancersjukdom, vikten av god samverkan i team, anpassad och tydlig information, fysisk och psykisk påverkan hos sjuksköterskor, upplevelser av otillräcklighet, bristen på kunskap leder till osäkerhet, emotionell påverkan hos sjuksköterskor. Konklusion: Sjuksköterskor ansåg att arbetet med barn med cancersjukdom var känsloladdat och energikrävande. Brist på teoretisk- och praktisk kunskap resulterade i sämre förutsättningar att vårda barn med cancer. Sjuksköterskor ansåg att det var viktigt med kollegialt stöd från både kollegor och anhöriga i arbetet med att vårda barn med cancersjukdom.

Abstract [en]

Background: Childhood cancer is different from adult cancer. Causes are unknown and the treatment is long. It is important to keep in mind that children should continue to be children and be involved in their care. Family-centered care is an important part of caring for sick children. The nurse´s responsibility is to ensure that nursing and communication are adapted to the individual. The Palliative care of seriously ill children is a demanding situation for all parties. Method: A qualitative literature-based study of previously conducted research in which twelve scientific qualitative articles were analyzed. Aim: The purpose of this study is to describe nurses´experiences of caring for children with cancer. Findings: Two main themes and six sub-themes emerged; The work with children with cancer, the importance of a good relationship with children with cancer, the importance of good collaboration in teams, adapted and clear information, physical and mental impact on nurses, experiences of inadequacy, lack of knowledge leads to insecurity, emotional impact on nurses. Conclusion: Nurses believe that working with children with cancer was emotionally charged and energy-intensive. Lack of theoretical and practical knowledge results in poorer conditions for caring for children with cancer. Nurses believe that it was important to have peer support from both colleagues and relatives in the work of caring for children with cancer.
