Living with venous leg ulcer : a qualitative interview study about patients´experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

I Sverige lider ca 50 000 personer av bensår vilket definieras som ”sår på ben och/eller fot nedom knät som ej läkt på 6 veckor”, ungefär hälften av dessa är venösa bensår. De flesta som drabbas av bensår är 65 år eller äldre. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva patienters upplevelse av att leva med venösa bensår. Studien är baserad på en kvalitativ metod med en induktiv ansats. Data samlades in genom intervjuer från sex patienter och analyserades sedan med hjälp av innehållsanalys. Resultatet baseras på två kategorier; begränsat och bundet liv samt önskan att bli sedd. Dessa kategorier bildade temat; att vara hel men ändå inte. Utifrån denna studie kan personal som vårdar och behandlar bensårspatienter få ökad kunskap om hur patienter upplever att det är att leva med venösa bensår. Med hänsyn till detta vore det önskvärt att effektiva och välstrukturerade vårdrutiner utarbetas för att uppnå helhetssyn inom vården och behandlingen av bensårspatienter.

Abstract [en]

Approximately 50 000 people in Sweden are suffering from leg ulcers which is defined as "wounds on the legs and/or foot below the knee, which is not healed in 6 weeks", about half of them are venous leg ulcers. Most people who suffer from leg ulcers are 65 years or older. The purpose of this study was to describe patients' experiences of living with venous leg ulcers. The study is based on a qualitative method with an inductive approach. Data were collected through interviews from six patients and analyzed with help of content analyzing. The results are based on two different categories: limited and restricted life, and desire to be seen. These categories formed the theme; to be whole but still not. Based on this study, staff who care for and treat leg ulcer patients can increase knowledge about how patients feel it is to live with venous leg ulcers. Given this, it would be desirable that there are effective and well-structured care practices designed to achieve holistic healthcare and treatment of patients with leg ulcers.
