The importance of support for postmenopausal women with breast cancer : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Bröstcancer är den vanligaste cancerformen hos kvinnor i Sverige. Under 2008 fick ca 7300 kvinnor diagnosen bröstcancer och av dessa var 72 procent 55 år och äldre. Tidigare forskning har visat att postmenopausala kvinnor som är 55 år och äldre upplever att de inte får tillräckligt stöd från vårdpersonal och närstående.

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att beskriva hur postmenopausala kvinnor med bröstcancer upplever olika former av stöd och hur dessa påverkar deras hälsa.

Metod: Vi använde oss av en litteraturöversikt, med 16 kvalitativa och kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar som undersöktes och analyserades enligt Friberg (2006).

Resultat: Dataanalysen av artiklarna resulterade i fem teman och dessa är: emotionellt stöd, vårdpersonalens stöd, närståendes stöd, religiöst stöd och informationsstöd. Vi fann att dessa stöd är viktiga för postmenopausala kvinnors hälsa och livskvalitet.

Slutsats: Olika typer av stöd från närstående och vårdpersonal upplevs som viktiga för postmenopausala kvinnor med bröstcancer. Mer forskning behövs för att få en bättre förståelse för vilka stöd som är viktiga för postmenopausala kvinnor med bröstcancer och hur dessa påverkar deras hälsa.

Abstract [en]

Background: Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Sweden.  In 2008 there were about 7300 women diagnosed with breast cancer and of these 72 per cent were 55 years or older. Earlier research showed that postmenopausal women with breast cancer aged 55 years and older felt that they were not getting enough support from health professionals and relatives.

Aim: The aim of this study is to describe how postmenopausal women with breast cancer experience different types of support and how these affect their health.

Method: A literature review was used in which 16 qualitative and quantitative studies were examined and analyzed according to Friberg (2006).

Results: The data analysis of the articles revealed five themes and these are: emotional support, health professionals` support, relatives´ support, religious support and information support. We found that these supports are important for postmenopausal women´s health and quality of life.

Conclusions: Different types of support from relatives and health professionals are perceived as important for postmenopausal women with breast cancer. More research is needed to get a better understanding of which supports that are important for postmenopausal women with breast cancer and how it affects their health.
