Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Cirka 130 000-150 000 personer i Sverige har en demenssjukdom. Demens är en obotlig sjukdom som kan leda till exempelvis minnessvårigheter, svårigheter att kommunicera, svårigheter att sköta sin personliga hygien. På grund av dessa symtom kan omvårdnaden av personer med demenssjukdom vara en svårighet för vårdpersonalen och de kan ställas inför olika utmaningar. Syfte: Att beskriva vårdpersonalens erfarenheter kring utmaningar i omvårdnad av personer med demenssjukdom. Metod: Litteraturöversikt där resultatet är baserat på arton vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: I resultatet har författarna till denna litteraturöversikt studerat vårdpersonalens erfarenheter av utmaningar kring omvårdnad av personer med demenssjukdom. Vid olika situationer i omvårdnaden av personer med demenssjukdom identifierades svårigheter och utmaningar för vårdpersonalen. Utmaningar som urskiljes: Bevara integritet eller förebygga skada, personlig hygien, administrera läkemedel, måltidssituationer, att undanhålla sanning för att lugna, teknisk övervakning och kommunikation. Slutsats: Det finns flera utmaningar inom omvårdnad av personer med demenssjukdom, där vårdpersonalen ställs inför valet att främja individens självbestämmande och integritet eller att förebygga skador genom att gå emot individens vilja.
