Caregivers' experiences of working with death and dying in a hospice setting : An interview based study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Döden anses vara en stressfaktor för hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal och tidigare forskning visar att detta även gäller vårdare vid hospice. Ett antal vanliga copingstrategier fungerar inte i hospicemiljön på grund av att döden är ett oundvikligt inslag där. En studie framhåller dock den låga utbrändhetsgraden bland vårdgivare på hospice och föreslår bland annat att det holistiska perspektivet på omvårdnad kan vara sammankopplat med detta till synes ambivalenta förhållande. Kan hospicefilosofin inverka på synen på döden och döendet bland hospicepersonal? En intervjustudie genomfördes med tre vårdare yrkesverksamma vid ett hospice i Sverige. Det manifesta innehållet som relaterade till syftet med studien identifierades och analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet visar att hospicevårdare påverkas av hospicefilosofin inom områden som synen på vård i livets slutskede, döendet och det professionella samarbetet. Deltagarna uttryckte att de trivs med sitt arbetssätt och uttryckte en mängd olika strategier för att hantera svårigheter i sitt arbete. Arbete som bygger på en filosofi som genomsyrar vården verkar också sammansvetsa personalgruppen. Ytterligare forskning på detta område kan vara av intresse.

Abstract [en]

Death is considered a stressor to all health care personnel and previous research shows that this applies to hospice caregivers as well. In addition, a number of common coping strategies are impossible to use due to the specific environment. One study however points out low burn-out rating among the hospice caregivers and suggests the holistic nursing perspective, among others, as one of the possible reasons for this seemingly ambivalent finding. Can the hospice philosophy influence the view on death among hospice caregivers? An interview based study was conducted among caregivers working in a hospice in Sweden, where three participants took part. The manifest content relating to the purpose of the study was identified and analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The result shows that hospice caregivers indeed are influenced by the hospice philosophy in areas such as the view on end-of-life care, dying and professional cooperation. The participants displayed affection for their work style and a variety of ways in which to cope with the difficulty of their work. Work based on a philosophy that permeates the care of the patients seems to increase the appreciation of each other as co-workers. Further research in this area can be of interest.
