Who will help us? : Relatives’ experiences of the nurse’s palliative care (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: A large proportion of patients’ needs palliative care. Relatives play an increasingly important role in the care of the patient and should be included by the nurse in the nursing care. This means that relatives should receive as much support and care as the patient. Aim: The purpose of this qualitative literature study is to describe the relatives’ experiences of the nurse’s palliative care. Method: The method chosen is a literature-based study based on analysis of qualitative research. Twelve articles were systematically searched for and analysed into different themes. Findings: These findings were divided into three main themes; being familiar, being involved and being supported. Conclusion: The experiences that relatives had were fundamentally positive but could turn negative, when nurses didn’t include relatives in the care of the patient.
