Dying patients´ experiences of palliative homecare A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att belysa döende patienters upplevelser av palliativ

hemsjukvård.

Metod: Examensarbetet utfördes som en litteraturstudie med 16 vetenskapliga artiklar, där 12 artiklar hade kvalitativ ansats och 4 hade en kvantitativ ansats. Datainsamlingen utfördes i databaserna CINAHL och PubMed där samma sökord användes i båda.

Huvudresultat:Resultatet visade att patienterna i stort var nöjda med att vårdas i sina hem. I hemmet upplevde de en trygghet och det var värdefullt att få ha sina anhöriga nära. Det var viktigt för de flesta att fortsätta leva ett så normalt liv som möjligt. Patienterna hade möjligheten att slutföra påbörjade projekt och reda ut känslomässiga relationer. Patienters upplevelse av god palliativ vård grundade sig på rätten till självbestämmande och tillit. Personalen i de palliativa hemsjukvårdsteamen upplevdes som professionella och ompetenta. I livets slutskede uppstod många existentiella frågor och ett behov av en tro. Slutsats: Utvecklingen av palliativ hemsjukvård är viktig då det finns en önskan om att få vara hemma sin sista tid i livet med stöd av kompetent personal och anhöriga vid sin sida.
