When weight is in the center of everything : a literary survey that highlights how the family can be involved in the care of a patient with Anorexia Nervosa (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Anorexia Nervosa is a mental illness of which the result is a will-controlled weight loss. It is an illness that affects the entire body and can become life-threatening. The illness is most common in young women and is often developed because of a stressful life event, stressful family relationships or sexual abuse. The disease also has a heredity of 50-90% in all cases. Aim: The aim of this study is to describe how nurses can involve the family in the care of a patient with Anorexia Nervosa. Method: The method used in this study was a literary survey based on ten articles of both qualitative and quantitative type. The articles were analysed using the method of Friberg (2012b). Result: Three main themes were created: Building relationships, providing education and preparing for home. Conclusion: The result of this study shows that the involvement of the family in the care of a patient with Anorexia Nervosa has improved conditions of recovery. Nurses have a crucial role in this process by creating relationships, having an educational role and preparing both patient and family for the return home.
