Abstract [sv]

Touch that is performed in a sensitive and gentle way can be a good complement in caring. To be stricken with illness can involve that the individual feels powerlessness and to have no control over the own body. This could lead to both psychical and physical suffering. To strength health is one of the nurses' responsibilities and to touch can be one way. The aim of the study was to describe patients' experience of the effects of touch. This literature study is based of scientific articles. The result showed that touch contributes to several positive effects as pain relief, reduced anxiety and increased wellbeing. The patients felt both physical and emotional strength after the touch and this could help them to take an active part in their health process. Touch experienced as getting a meaningful relief from suffering that disease cause.
