Abstract [en]

Many people need palliative care in the end of life. In palliative care, the ones closest to the dying patient has a central role. Previous studies have shown that it can be a challenge for the nurses to care for the ones closest to the dying patient because they carries a lot of emotions. The aim of this study was to describe nurse’s experiences of meeting relatives in end of life care. The method used in this study was a literature review based on qualitative studies. Twelve articles were analyzed according to Friberg’s (2017) qualitative content analyze in five steps for literature-based studies. The result showed that nurses experienced the meeting with relatives as a journey. Three themes emerged from how the nurses experienced the meeting with relatives in end of life care: The support from the start of the journey until the end, Together through the journey and Challenges during the journey. The conclusion is that it is challenging for the nurses to meet the relative in end of life care. It is a lot of feelings involved and the nurses have to think about many things to give as good care as possible.
