    Abstract [en]

    Depression in elderly people has become a big health problem. Today, depression is the most common psychiatric illness amongst elderly. If depression is not identified, it can lead to serious consequences. One of the nurse’s duties could be identify depression in elderly people. The purpose of this literary study was to find the nurse’s difficulties and possibilities in identifying depression in elderly. The chosen method was a qualitative literary study and was carried out according to Friberg (2001). That knowledge that emerged about the nurses was categorised in difficulties in identifying depression and possibilities of discovering this. The result of the study shows that nurses have difficulties in identifying depression in elderly, but there are possibilities to improve an identification. When the depressed elderly disguises the depressive symptoms in somatic illnesses, the nurse may have difficulties in identifying the depression. There may also be the attitude of the nurses, that depression is part of the aging process. This may lead to that depression is not identified. By using communication, the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS), information from people close to the patient and education, the nurse’s possibilities in identifying a depression are increased and can thereby reduce the suffering of the elderly. The conclusion is that nurses need more education to be able to identify depression in eldery.
