Abstract [en]

Background Every day, about one child gets diagnosed with cancer in Sweden. The cancer has a big impact on the child and its family. The child is not alone during its cancer diagnosis, where the caregivers play a special roll. For caregivers to be able to take care of their sick child and promote a healthy relationship with the healthcare, an understanding of caregivers´ experience of their child´s cancer process is needed. Aim The aim of this literature study was to describe health-promoting aspects of caregivers to children with cancer. Method A literature study design was used. Data from ten qualitative articles where analyzed using the method to contributing to evidence-based nursing based on analysis of qualitative research. The purpose of the method was to get a deeper understanding of caregivers` experiences and to be able to describe their health-promoting aspects. Results The results were divided in to four themes and ten sub-themes. To share the care (to be involved, to trust the healthcare stuff, to be informed), To get emotional support (to get support from family and friends, to get support from your child), To continue to live (to live a normal life, to get practical support, to have control), To make sense (to feel hope and faith, to get a new perspective). Conclusion Understanding regarding caregivers’ health-promoting aspects during their child’s cancer treatment helps the nurse’s to give adequate and personal-centered care and thereby strengthen their health processes.
