Nurses' experiences of caring for patients in a palliative stage in a hospital environment : A literature-based study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: In recent years, it has become increasingly common to treat palliative in the hospital environment. Nurse´s will meet the patients who are in the end of the life. The end of the life can be emotionality meet and they can also be a rewarding for the nurse´s. Palliative care is about alleviating the suffering and pain of the patient.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe the nurse´s experience of caring for patients in a palliative stage in a hospital environment.

Method: A literature-based study whit focus on qualitative articles. The analysis is based on Friberg´s method.

Results: The results show that the nurses believe that there is a lack of knowledge in palliative care and that they feel that they need support from their colleagues and the work organization. The nurses feel that they have done all they can but still feel inadequate because of the workload and the lack of time. The palliative care raises many feelings in the nurse and the result shows that it is easier for an experienced nurse to handle their feelings than it is for an inexperienced nurse.

Conclusion: Nurses' experiences of palliative care are influenced by many different things. What is mainly emphasized is experience, knowledge, obstacles around creating good meetings with patient, relatives and colleagues as well as different feelings, both hard and good, about caring.
