    Abstract [en]

    Background: Death is a normal process from which there are no exceptions. Central aspects of palliative care is to respect the patients autonomy and right to make own decisions. How patients experience their quality of life is strongly associated to their existential wellbeing. It is not possible to ease all suffering, only those parts that are connected to the treatment. To be able to promote a good communication at the end of life is it necessary that it’s encouraging and supportive.

    Aim: The purpose of this thesis was to describe patients reported experiences as their life came to an end.

    Methods: A qualitative study with narrative approach was chosen as method, seven self-biographies were included.

    Results: Four categories emerged: Another perspective on life, The difficulties of being ill, As patient exercise own will, and The desire to retain life-quality with eleven subcategories.

    Conclusions: Another approach to life is obtained when the unimaginable news is notified. The difficultness about being terminally ill was physical symptoms and feelings of guilt. To be seen and their own will was a priority and the desire to preserve the quality of life.
