Nurses experience of completed oral care within elderly care (English)
Abstract [en]

Bad oral health amongst elderly is very common. Diseases have a bad effect on oral health. Not caring for elderly person's oral health affects the ability to speak, eat and smile. Tooth ache,caries, gingivitis, and fungus are a few diseases that can occur due to bad oral health. The patient's suffering is something that can be prevented. Nurses have a responsibility to improve oral health amongst elderly. Therefore, it's a subject that needs to be lifted. The aim of this literature study was to describe nurses' experience of completed oral care within elderly care.

The chosen method was a literature review with eight qualitative articles that had been reviewed with a quality template. Two main themes and five sub themes emerged. The two main themes were obstacles in nursing and strategies for improvement. The five sub themes were lack of knowledge, lack of time, lack of encounter, interprofessional collaboration and support from management. The care staff prioritized other tasks before oral care because oral care was a task that demanded time, knowledge, and experience. Increased knowledge and understanding of good oral health need to be highlighted because oral health is linked to general health.
