The preservation of hope at the end of live : A literature study about patients´ experiences of hope (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Hopp är ett fenomen som är svårt att definiera. Hopp upplevs på olika sätt och i olika omfattningar av patienter med en dödlig sjukdom. Upplevelsen av hopp samspelar med upplevelsen av hopplöshet. Hopp är betydelsefullt för patienter i palliativ vård och kan ge patienter förmåga att uthärda lidandet och det betraktas som en inre resurs som är viktig för att uppnå livskvalitet. Syfte: Att studera patienters upplevelser av hopp i livets slutskede. Metod: En litteraturstudie gjordes utifrån vetenskapliga artiklar. Tio artiklar var funna och granskades. Nio artiklar var kvalitativa och en var kvantitativ. De utvalda artiklarna studerades och meningsbärande enheter plockades ut och utvecklades till kategorier. Resultat: Resultatet är presenterat utifrån symtomlindring, självständighet, relationer, positiv inställning, syntes och acceptans. Resultatet belyser patienters upplevelser av hopp samt hur betydelsefullt hoppet är i livets slutskede. Upplevelsen av hopp är att ha en god symtomlindring, att få vara med familj och vänner och att vara oberoende. Diskussion: Patienters upplevelse av hopp diskuteras i relation till annan forskning om patienters upplevelser om hopp och i relation till de sex S:n. Det diskuteras även betydelsefulla aspekter kring hur sjuksköterskor kan främja patienters upplevelse av hopp.

Abstract [en]

Background: Hope is a phenomenon that is difficult to define. Hope is experienced in different ways and in different degrees by patients with a terminal illness. The experience of hope interacts with the experience of hopelessness. Hope is important for patients in palliative care and is able to give patients the ability to endure suffering and it is considered as an inner resource that is important to achieve quality of life. Aim: To study patients’ experiences of hope at the end of life. Method: A literature study was made by scientific articles. Ten articles were found and examined. Nine articles were qualitative and one was quantitative. The selected articles were studied and significant units were picked out and developed into categories. Results: The results are presented by symptom relief, independence, relationships, positive attitude, synthesis and acceptance. The results illustrate patients’ experiences of hope and how meaningful hope is at the end of life. Hope is having a good symptom relief, being with family and friends and being independent. Discussion: Patients’ experiences of hope are discussed in relation to other research on patients’ experiences of hope and in relation to the six S words. It also discusses important aspects of how nurses are able to foster patients’ experiences hope.
