Nurses' experiences of meeting patients with existential suffering : A literature-based study (English)
Abstract [sv]

BAKGRUND: Att uppleva existentiellt lidande är en naturlig del av att vara människa. Att lindra lidande ingår i sjuksköterskors ansvarsområde. En god kommunikationsförmåga krävs för att skapa ett samtal som lindrar lidandet. SYFTE: Att belysa sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att möta patienter med existentiellt lidande. METOD: Litteraturbaserad studie grundad på fjorton kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. RESULTAT: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framkom tre kategorier såsom: Strävan mot lindring, hinder för ett adekvat professionellt yrkesutövande och professionell och personlig påverkan med nio underkategorier. KONKLUSION: När sjuksköterskor får utbildning och kunskap i hur existentiellt lidande kan hanteras blir de betydligt bättre på att tillgodose patienters behov av detta. Avsaknad av tydliga regelverk, som betonar vikten av att se patienters existentiella lidande, gör att den delen av omvårdnaden hamnar i skymundan.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: To experience the existential suffering is a natural part of being human. To relieve suffering is part of nurses' responsibility. It requires good communication skills to create an encounter to alleviate the suffering. OBJECTIVE: To elucidate nurses' experiences of meeting patients with existential suffering. METHOD: Literature-based study, based on fourteen qualitative research articles. RESULTS: Three categories emerged from the analysis: Striving towards alleviation, barriers to adequate practicing professional and professional and personal impact with nine subcategories. CONCLUSION: When nurses are educated and get the knowledge about how existential suffering can be managed, they become much better at meeting the needs of patients. Lack of a distinct regulatory framework which emphasizes the importance of recognizing patients' existential suffering, puts that part of caring in the background.
