Abstract [sv]

Avancerad sjukvård i hemmet är en organiserad specialiserad vårdform som utför kvalificerad omvårdnad dygnet runt. Vården bedrivs i samarbete med ett multiprofessionellt team med olika yrkesprofessioner. Avancerad sjukvård i hemmet består till största delen av palliativ vård, där målet är att öka patientens livskvalitet samt att förutse, kartlägga och lindra symtom. Syftet var att beskriva distriktssköterskors erfarenheter av att vårda patienter som får avancerad sjukvård i hemmet med palliativ inriktning. Intervjuer genomfördes med fem distriktssköterskor med erfarenhet av avancerad sjukvård i hemmet och i analysen användes en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet visade på erfarenheter av en välfungerande vård med ett självständigt, ansvarfullt ensamarbete, som kräver goda kunskaper i medicinteknisk omvårdnad. För att utföra ett bra arbete behövs teamsamarbete, handledning, debriefing, arbetslivserfarenhet och fortbildning. Distriktssköterskorna är anträffbara dygnet runt, de har en emotionell, kommunikativ, stödjande, trygghetsskapande och samordnande funktion. Ökad kunskap och förståelse kan leda till bättre insikt i ämnet och bekräfta distriktssköterskan i hennes profession.
