Nurses’ approach toward patients with comorbid mental illness (English)
Abstract [en]

Background:

Mental illness is a growing global burden of disease. Research shows it is common that patients with mental illness are objects for stigmatization. The nurse shall meet the individual needs for all patients. A holistic perspective will embody the view of the patient as a whole and integrate mind and body. Aim: The aim of this study was to illustrate the factors contributing to nurses’ approach toward patients with mental illness in the somatic care. Method: A literature review was used to analyze scientific articles related to the subject area. Five qualitative- and three quantitative studies are included in this review. Results: A central theme of Stigmatization was developed and linked to the major themes of Fear, Frustration and Engagement. Many nurses’ felt frightened and threatened by patients’ unpredictable behavior while some nurses had a more positive attitude. Conclusion: General stigma is common and may have developed early in life. Nurses’ negative approach is also affected by a lack of knowledge in mental illness, resources and support. Some nurses though, show empathy and interest in patients with comorbid mental illness.
