Health professional's importans for girls' fight against anorexia nervosa : A literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: A desire to be beautiful enough from the eyes of society by losing weight is something that many girls struggle with. Anorexia nervosa is a disease that affects the individual both physically and mentally and is because of that difficult to treat. Even though the disease is difficult to treat health professional's should behave consistently and strive to create a mutual relationship in which individuals have confidence and affirmation.

Aim: To illuminate the health professional's importance for girls' recovery from anorexia nervosa.

Method: A literature review was chosen to this study and an analysis was made of eleven systematically searched articles and one unsystematic searched article. All articles were qualitative.

Result: The analysis of the results revealed three themes: (1) Support to a better wellbeing, (2) The caring relationship, (3) Control and power. Six subthemes emerged: Motivation and participation, Health professional's response, Difficulties in the relationship, Structure and rules and Authority of care.

Conclusion: The study confirms a number of ways that the health professional and the interpersonal relationship are significant for individuals suffering from anorexia nervosa. The results may contribute to an increased awareness and knowledge of individuals' perception of the health professional, which can facilitate and develop active health professional's understanding of individuals suffering from anorexia nervosa and how the health professional can support individuals to a better wellbeing.
