The patient's experiences of being in the end of life : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning visade att omhändertagande möten med sjuksköterskan stärkte patientens självbild och skapade känslor av trygghet. Möten med sjuksköterskan som inte var omhändertagande skapade känslor av att bli nedbruten hos patienten. Patienterna ville vara delaktiga i sin egen vård. Det var inte lätt att vara anhörig till någon i livets slutskede. Det fanns inte mycket forskning skrivet om patientens upplevelser i livets slut. Syftet med studien är att beskriva patientens upplevelser av att befinna sig i livets slutskede. Studien var en litteraturöversikt med en kvalitativ ansats. I analysen jämfördes likheter och skillnader i studiernas resultat. Resultatet visade att en anpassad vård var av betydelse för patientens upplevelser av självständighet. När patienten befann sig tillsammans med familjen upplevdes samhörighet och välbefinnande. En god relation till sjuksköterskan betydde mycket för patienten i livets slutskede. En sämre relation till sjuksköterskan skapade känslor av att bli kränkt. Studien gav förståelse för vikten av att involvera patienten i sin egen vård. Studien bidrog även till en förståelse för betydelsen av att bekräfta varje patient som en individ.

Abstract [en]

Previous research showed that caring meetings with the nurse strengthened the patients self image and feelings of security. Uncaring meetings with the nurse created feelings of being broken. Patients wanted to be involved in their own care. Being next of kin to someone in the end of life was not easy. Little was written about patient experiences in the end of life. The aim of the study is to describe the patient’s experiences of being in the end of life. The study was a literature review with a qualitative approach. Differences and similarities in the results of the studies were compared in the analysis. The results showed that an adapted care was of importance for patient feelings of independence. Feelings of togetherness and wellbeing arose when the patients were together with the family. A good relation with the nurse meant a lot for the patient at the end of life. A bad relation to the nurse could create feelings of being violated. The study created an understanding of the importance to offer patients an opportunity to be involved in their own care. Furthermore it gave an understanding of the importance to confirm the patient as an individual.
