Palliative care from an emotional perspective : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskans emotionella erfarenheter av att arbeta i hemsjukvården med patienter som vårdas i livets slutskede samt hur dessa emotioner kan hanteras och bearbetas.

Metod: Empirisk intervjustudie med kvalitativ ansats. Studien inkluderade tre allmänsjuksköterskor och tre distriktssköterskor anställda i hemsjukvården.

Resultat: Ur analysprocessen framkom tre kategorier: emotionell tillfredsställelse, emotionella svårigheter samt hantering- och bearbetningsstrategier. Kategorierna bildades utifrån analysens sju subkategorier: glädje i palliativt vårdande, meningsfullhet, harmoni, ångest i mötet med den lidande patienten, sorg i relation till gamla minnen, rädsla för att vara otillräcklig, kollegialt stöd, professionellt förhållningssätt samt ökat behov av samtalsstöd.

Konklusion: Sjuksköterskor inom hemsjukvården upplever olika emotioner i vårdandet av palliativa patienter. Vikten av att känna tillfredsställelse i arbetet betonades precis som tryggheten till kollegor i arbetsgruppen vid bearbetning av svårhanterade emotioner och situationer.
