Abstract [sv]

Stroke är en vanlig sjukdom med stor risk för allvarliga funktionsnedsättningar efter att ha blivit drabbad. Livet kan bli annorlunda efter en stroke och känslorna i samband med detta kan vara svåra att hantera. Syfte: Syftet med studien är att belysa den känslomässiga upplevelsen av att drabbas av stroke Metod: Litteraturstudie med kvalitativ ansats. Genom att ha utgått ifrån att studera kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar enligt Evans beskrivning av innehållsanalys. Resultat: Fyra teman visar sig; Ensamhet, tillit, hopplöshet och hälsohinder. Utifrån dessa framkommer 8 subteman; Rädsla, utanförskap, stöd, arbete, sorg, ilska, kamp och prestationsångest. Slutsats: Det finns en brist inom vården för hur man skall bemöta människor som drabbats av en stroke och hur man skall ta sig an de olika känslor som kommer med insjuknandet. Det är tydligt att det behövs mer kunskap inom detta område så att vården kan ge adekvat hjälp till de drabbade, som tiden efter insjuknandet upplever en stor oro inför framtiden.
