Nurses attitudes towards patients with mental illness : a literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Psykisk ohälsa är ett utbrett och växande problem i samhället. Människor med psykisk sjukdom möts ofta av negativa och skeptiska attityder i såväl samhället som i vården. I den dagliga verksamheten möter sjuksköterskor patienter med psykisk sjukdom såväl i den somatiska som i den psykiatriska vården och det ingår i sjuksköterskans profession att behandla alla patienter på lika villkor.

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskors attityder gentemot patienter med psykisk sjukdom.

Metod: En allmän litteraturöversikt har skapats för att belysa sjuksköterskors attityder gentemot patienter med psykisk sjukdom. Resultatet baserades på tio vetenskapliga artiklar, två kvalitativa och åtta kvantitativa, vilka hämtades från databaserna CINAHL Complete och PubMed. Samtliga artiklar kvalitetsgranskades och resultatanalyserades.

Resultat: Denna litteraturöversikt visar att sjuksköterskorna uttryckte främst positiva men även negativa attityder gentemot patienter med psykisk sjukdom. Utbildning och erfarenhet visade sig vara de faktorer som främst hade betydelse för sjuksköterskornas attityder men även organisationen, vårdklimatet, åldern och genus, hade betydelse på olika sätt.

Diskussion: Ökad kunskap i form av utbildning och erfarenhet, kan förbättra sjuksköterskors attityder och därmed även bemötandet av patienter. I enlighet med resultaten förefaller det finnas ett behov för sjuksköterskor av mer utbildning gällande psykiska sjukdomar, hanteringsstrategier för svåra situationer samt även möjligheter till självreflektion.

Abstract [en]

Background: Mental illness is a widespread and growing problem in society. People living with mental illness are often met with negative and skeptical attitudes in society as well as by health care professionals. In their daily working lives, nurse meet patients with mental illness in both somatic and psychiatric care and it is the nurses’ duty to care for all patients on equal terms.

Aim: The aim was to highlight the attitudes of nurses towards patients with mental illness.

Method: A general literature review has been performed to highlight the attitudes of nurses towards patients with mental illness. The result is based on ten scientific articles, two of which are qualitative and eight quantitative, retrieved from the databases CINAHL Complete and PubMed. All of the articles were reviewed according to quality.

Results: This literature review shows that nurses expressed primarily positive but also negative attitudes towards patients with mental illness. Education and experience proved to be the factors that were primarily relevant to nurses´ attitudes but also organization, healthcare climate, age and gender had significance in various ways.

Discussion: Increased knowledge in the form of education and experience, can improve the attitudes of nurses and, consequently, the treatment of patients. According to the results, there seems to a need for nurses for more education regarding mental illness, management strategies for difficult situations and opportunities for self- reflection.
