There is an emotional cost : Nurses experiences of working in palliative care (English)
Abstract [en]

Background:Studies have shown that working in palliative care poses high demands on nurses. They must be present in the encounters with the dying patient, yet remain a professional approach. To enable profound palliative care, support is needed. Aim: The aim of this study was to highlight the experiences of nurses working in palliative care. Method: Literature review according to Fribergs (2006) method of analysis based on nine qualitative articles. Findings: The core themes that emerged were: The experience of responsibility, the experience of inadequacies, the multidimensional emotional experiences. The nurses felt responsible to provide adequate palliative care and experienced powerlessness when this was not possible to obtain. The nurses lacked support from doctors and management. They felt privileged in enabling pain relief to their patient in their final stage of life
