Abstract [en]

Aim: The purpose of this study was to highlight in what forms and manifestations spirituality emerges in medical patients whether they consider themselves believers or not. The other aim was to analyse spiritual ideas of nursing scientists – authors of the patients’ oriented studies to come to the better understanding of the situation with spirituality in caring. Method: Descriptive meta-synthesis was chosen, in which 12 nursing studies were analyzed and compiled in a new integrity. Results: The analysis shows that caregivers must be ready to meet and confirm the spiritual dimension consisting of Faith, Meaning, Relationship and Questions without answers in the various forms and expressions they emerge in patient’s experience. Nursing scientists showed ideas broad enough to confirm patients’ experience. Relevance for clinical practice: By include spirituality only to religion and culture the dimension are easily forgotten, it can also in those forms mean that caregivers doesn’t see it as theirs to confirm. Nursing science do not with hold that small view of spirituality, instead the science presents a broad spectra of forms in which patients spirituality can appear. New insights about patients’ spirituality can be used by health care professionals to improve the care of patients as multidimensional human beings.
