Nursing staffs' experiences of patients with dementia in palliative care : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Många äldre personer drabbas av olika former av demenssjukdomar. Om personerna inte drabbas av annan dödlig sjukdom kommer demenssjukdomen i sig slutligen leda till döden. Palliativ vård är ofta förknippat med cancer- och hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar men allt mer börjar den palliativa vården introduceras även för patienter med demenssjukdom. Då demens ofta leder till kommunikationssvårigheter uppstår det problem i att ge en god personcentrerad vård i livets slutskede.

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa vårdpersonals erfarenheter i det palliativa vårdandet av patienter med demenssjukdom inom äldreomsorgen.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt har genomförts utifrån sökningar på databaserna CINAHL complete, Pubmed och Ageline. De utvalda artiklarna bestod av åtta kvalitativa studier och två tvärsnittsstudier. Analysen genomfördes utifrån Fribergs analysmetod.

Resultat: I resultatet beskrivs Tillämpning av palliativ vård för patienter med demenssjukdom, vårdpersonalens upplevelse av symtomlindring, vikten av god kommunikation och hinder och möjligheter för god palliativ vård. Det framkom att det kunde upplevas svårare att bedöma när en patient med demenssjukdom är i behov av palliativ vård än vid andra sjukdomstillstånd. Detta resulterade även i att vårdrelationen mellan patient och vårdpersonal var av stor betydelse för igenkänning av symtom. Vårdpersonal upplevde att det fanns brister i det emotionella stödet efter att ha vårdat en patient med demenssjukdom palliativt.

Diskussion: I metoddiskussionen diskuteras metodens fördelar och nackdelar, valet av artiklar och varför vissa begränsningar har utförts. I resultatdiskussionen diskuteras det framkomna resultatet i relation till den teoretiska utgångspunkten De 6 s:n. Kopplingar till personcentrerad vård belyses i resultatdiskussionen.
