Abstract [sv]

In the palliative care there are many close encounters between the care-taker and the care-giver. To be touched is foundational to every human being and the care-giver shows his presence to the care-taker, when he touch the care-taker. Touch is an important tool for the care-giver in the care for the care-taker. It becomes a natural way of communicating. The aim of this literature study was to describe which factors that are important, for the care-taker in the palliative care, to receive touch in the purpose of feeling well-being. The scientific articles were found by using "Academic Search". "AMED", "Cinahl" and "Science Direct" data bases. The results show that there were three factors that can help care-takers in end of life care, communication, safety and a good environment. Which leads to the possibility of touch for the care-taker This way helped the care-taker to a higher well-being and quality of life, since they're sense of well-being often were low and influenced they're quality of life. Touch can be used as a complementary therapy, the care-taker felt more pain-relief and less anxiety. They also felt more well-being and a higher quality of life, which were important for these care-takers at the end-of-life.
