Nurse's experience of providing good nursing in palliative care : a literature based study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Patients with life-threatening illnesses benefit from palliative care, which seeks to improve their quality of life. When a patient is diagnosed with a serious illness, it is the professional role of the nurse to contribute to supporting patients with safe and good palliative care, and to support individual to live with dignity in the face of incurable disease and the end of life.

Aim: The aim of the study was to describe the nurse´s experiences providing good nursing in late palliative care. Method: Literature-based study was used with qualitative design since it was used addressing the study’s aim. Seven articles were included.

Results: The result was compiled and from this emerged two main themes, Emotional impact and Organizational shortcomings. When nurses work in palliative care, they can face a variety of stresses. When caring for patients in their later stages of life, nurses often feel inadequate due to lack of time and resources. Nurses also suffer from a lack of organization, which means that they cannot provide the best possible treatment in palliative care.

Conclusion: When nurses work in palliative care, they may face a variety of pressures. When caring for patients in their later phases of life, nurses often feel inadequate due to a lack of time and resources. Nurses also suffer from a lack of organization, which means that they lack organizational opportunities, because they cannot provide the best possible treatment in palliative care
