Patient's experiences of living with Anorexia Nervosa (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

Background: Anorexia Nervosa (AN) is a psychiatric condition with a high mortality rate which is increasing in the society and is most common in women. The disease affects both body and mind and the effects can be life threatening. As a nurse it is important to see every person as an individual and the care should be individualized. Nurses need to get an understanding about a person's experiences to be able to give good care. We will with this study illuminate people's experiences of living with AN.

Aim: The aim with the study was to describe how people with AN experience their disease.

Method: This study is a literature review that was based on qualitative studies and was analyzed with Friberg's (2012) method: qualitative content analysis for literature-based studies.

Results: Three main themes were created: a battle between two characters, an aim for emotional balance and a complicated social relationship.

Conclusion: Every person experienced their AN differently. Many people with AN had a hard time trusting other people, including nurses. That showed how important it is for nurses to get an extended knowledge of the persons own experience of their condition. It also showed how important it is to meet every person as a unique individual.
