Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Det palliativa vårdandets utgångspunkt är att lindra lidandet för patienter. Patienter med obotliga cancersjukdomar uppger att sjuksköterskor har en betydande roll i deras bearbetning av lidande. Problem: Utan ökad kunskap om lidande för patienter med obotlig cancersjukdom i palliativ vård, ges inte sjuksköterskor tillräckliga förutsättningar att möta patienterna i deras lidande. Syfte: Att beskriva hur patienter med cancersjukdom i palliativ vård upplever lidande. Metod: En litteraturstudie med beskrivande syntes. Resultat: Analysen av tio artiklar genererade två teman och fyra subteman. Det första temat är när cancern tar över kroppen och det andra temat är existentiella behov. Under dessa teman bildades fyra subteman: att förlora kontrollen, att känna fysisk smärta, att tvivla och tappa hoppet samt att ha tro och hitta tröst. Slutsats: Patienters lidande behöver ses utifrån fysiska, psykiska, psykosociala och existentiella behov för att nå optimal lindring av lidande. Ökad förståelse för patienters lidande vid en obotlig cancer inom palliativ vård kan generera sjuksköterskor som kan lindra deras lidande bättre.

Abstract [en]

Background: The aim of palliative care is to alleviate suffering for the patients. Patients with incurable cancer diseases state that nurses have a significant role in processing their suffering. Problem: Without increased knowledge of suffering for patients with incurable cancer disease in palliative care, nurses are not given sufficient prerequisites to meet patients in their suffering. Aim: To describe how patients with cancer in palliative care experience suffering. Method: A literature study with descriptive synthesis. Result: The analysis of ten articles generated two themes and four subthemes. One theme is when the cancer takes over the body and the other theme is existential needs. Under these themes, four subthemes were formed: losing control, feeling physical pain, doubting and losing hope and the last subtheme having faith and finding comfort. Conclusion: Patients suffering needs to be seen from physical, psychological, psychosocial and existential need to achieve optimal relief of suffering. Increased understanding of patients suffering in an incurable cancer in palliative care can generate nurses who can relieve their suffering better.
