Abstract [sv]

Malnutrition is a common problem for patients with cancer that leads to anxiety and frustration for the whole family. Patients with palliative cancer disease treated at home are entitled to an adequate nutrition treatment suited to individual needs.

Aim: The aim of the literature review was to describe how cancer patients experience their nutriment situation before and after the introduction of parental nutrition and the experience of getting home parental nutrition. Methods: A literature study was carried out where qualitative and quantitative articles were examined. Findings: Five qualitative and five quantitative articles were examined. Four categories were created; patients experiences of their nutriment situation before the introduction of parental nutrition, mental experiences receiving parental nutrition at home, physical experiences receiving parental nutrition at home, patients experiences in general receiving parental nutrition at home. Conclusion: Through the parental nutrition treatment at home patients felt that the physical condition improved and the physiological symptoms were decreased. Even though family life was affected patients strived for a normal life. More studies are needed on the role of the nurse in the palliative care regarding nutritional treatment and how her support affects the patient’s positive experience.
