Nursing care measures to alleviate pain in the elderly in home health care : Literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Vår medellivslängd ökar, vi blir allt äldre. I hemsjukvården möter sjuksköterskan äldre personer som lever med smärta. Smärta som utgår från muskler, skelett och leder och som hindrar den äldre från att leva ett bra liv. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva vilka omvårdnadsåtgärder sjuksköterskan i hemsjukvården kan göra för att lindra smärta. Metod: Som metod användes en litteraturöversikt som baseras på fem kvalitativa och tre kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: Tre huvudkategorier framkom: Fysisk aktivitet, Farmakologisk behandling och Kognitiv metod. Ur dessa urskildes nio underkategorier: rörelse/vila, hjälpmedel, värme/kyla, massage, läkemedel, kunskap, kommunikation, kontinuitet, avledning. Slutsats: I omvårdnad vid smärta ingår flera olika delar. En kombination av åtgärder krävs för att lindra smärta. Sjuksköterskan har en viktig roll i valet av åtgärder.
