Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Mer än 70 miljoner personer har drabbats av Humant immunbristvirus (HIV) sedan epidemin startade och sjukdomen är idag fortfarande ett globalt hälsoproblem. I Filippinerna lever cirka 42 tusen personer med HIV och därför har sjuksköterskor och annan sjukvårdspersonal en viktig roll i patienternas liv när det gäller att möta och vårda dessa patienter.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva Filippinska sjuksköterskors upplevelse av att vårda patienter med HIV.

Metod: För att genomföra studien användes en kvalitativ metod där data samlades in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem Filippinska sjuksköterskor på ett sjukhus i Baguio. Intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Resultatet i studien inkluderar två huvudteman. I det första temat: relationen mellan sjuksköterskan och patienten, beskrivs vikten av att skapa en relation med sina patienter. För att skapa en relation bör sjuksköterskan lära känna patienten, skapa tillit och ge personcentrerad vård. Hinder och svårigheter i processen att skapa en förtroendefull relation med sin patient tas även upp i detta tema. I det andra temat beskrivs viktiga aspekter som sjuksköterskorna bör ha i åtanke när de träffar och vårdar patienter med HIV.

Diskussion: Resultatet från intervjuerna i studien diskuterades i relation till relevant litteratur och Travelbee’s teori. Fokus i diskussionen var relationen mellan sjuksköterskan och patienten samt viktiga aspekter vid vårdande av HIV patienter.
