Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Patienter med försämrat munhälsotillstånd upplever obehag i munhålan vilket påverkar deras välbefinnande och medverkande i sociala situationer. Risken med ett försämrat munhälsotillstånd är flera och forskning visar ett samband mellan ett försämrat munhälsotillstånd och systematiska sjukdomar. Syfte: Syftet med examensarbetet var att beskriva vårdpersonalens upplevelser av att utföra munvård. Metod: En systematisk litteraturstudie med beskrivande syntes har genomförts där kvalitativa vårdvetenskapliga artiklar analyserats. Resultat: De teman som framkom var utmaningar samt en vilja att göra rätt. Under dessa huvudteman framkom totalt sex subteman som beskrev vårdpersonalens upplevelser av att utföra munvård. Upplevelserna som uppkom handlade om munvårdens prioritering, att utförandet försvårades när det kom till patienter som hade begränsade förutsättningar. En okunskap hos vårdpersonalen uppenbarade sig där de kände sig osäkra på hur de skulle utföra munvård. Obehagskänslor var något som uppkom i resultatet där vårdpersonalen upplevde obehag i samband med utförandet av munvård. Att värna om patientens integritet och en upplevelse av välbefinnande när dem utfört munvård var upplevelser som uppkom under temat en vilja att göra rätt. Slutsats: Slutsatsen visade ett behov av kunskap hos vårdpersonalen för att de ska känna trygghet i utförandet av munvård samt att deras personliga upplevelser av munvård hade betydelse för utförandet.
