Women’s experiences of living with cervical cancer : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Livmoderhalscancer är en gynekologisk sjukdom vilken påverkar kvinnors livskvalitet. För att utveckla förståelse för kvinnors vårdbehov, är det viktigt att sjuksköterskor tar ansvar för att främja kvinnors hälsa. Sjuksköterskor behöver ha kompetens att utgå ifrån individens livsmiljö samt bemöta kvinnor på ett individuellt sätt vilket baseras på personcentrerad vård. 

Syfte: Syftet med litteraturöversikten var att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med livmoderhalscancer.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt har genomförts enligt Fribergs beskrivning. Underlaget till resultatet utgörs av tio kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. Databaserna Cinahl complete och PubMed användes.

Resultat: Resultatet presenteras i fyra huvudteman: Behov av att hantera förändringar i vardagen; Behov av stöd, kunskap och information; Behov av stöd för att kunna hantera sina känslor samt Behov av stöd gällande sexualitet och närhet. 

Slutsats: Utifrån litteraturöversikten konkluderas att kvinnor som lever med livmoderhalscancer haft begränsade resurser på grund av kulturella aspekter, kunskap samt att sjuksköterskan tar hänsyn till den sociala aspekter för att påvisa samband mellan kvinnors upplevelser, livsmiljö samt främja kvinnors hälsa.

Abstract [en]

Background: Cervical cancer is a gynecological disease that affects women's quality of life. To develop a pre-understanding of women's medical needs it is important that nurses take responsibility for promoting women's health. Nurses need to have the competence to understand the individual's living environment and to treat women in an individual way, which is based on person-centered care.

Aim: The aim with the literature review was to describe women's experience to live with cervical cancer.  

Method: A literature review was conducted according to Friberg and analysis methods. The basis of results is performed by ten qualitative scientific articles. The Cinahl complete and PubMed databases were used.

Results: The result presented into four main themes; the need to deal with changes everyday, the need to support, knowledge and information, the need to deal with emotions and the need for support regarding sexuality and relationships

Conclusion: A literature review concludes that women living with cervical cancer have experienced a lack of information about the disease and limited resources of cultural difference. It is important that the nurse sees a connection between women's experience and their living environment.
