Patients' experiences of psychosis : a literature overview (English)
Abstract [en]

Background:

Preconceptions about the mentally ill patient is common in today's socie-ty. Psychosis is a condition which heavily affects the patient's thoughts and contact with reality. Psychosis is rarely described from the patient's perspective and how it is to live with this condition. Further knowledge about the condition is essential when customiz-ing the care. Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate patients' experiences of psy-chosis Method: The study has been conducted as a literature overview in which both qualitative and quantitative research have been analyzed. Results: Psychosis had a big impact on patient's social relationships and their ability to be a part of social activities. Common experiences also showed that patients wanted more information and knowledge about the condition. Negative experiences arose when little or no infor-mation was given. Not being involved in your own care was frequently described as negative by the patients. Stigma and a feeling of shame were frequently identified by the patients. Conclusion: Psychosis affects many aspects of life. Experiences that emerged varied but common was that social life was affected and that more knowledge, information and participation in the care were desired. The nurse has a great opportunity to influence the experiences that have emerged. Relatives have an important role in the life of the patient and the nurse should therefore ensure to include the family in the care if possible.
