Abstract [sv]

Background: Children’s death is unexpected and unnatural irrespective of a long time of illness or a sudden death. Nurses working with palliative care of children experience a range of different emotions during the care. Palliative care is health promoting even though the purpose no longer is to cure. According to the nursing theorist Katie Eriksson health is possible to achieve even though the patient has got a deadly disease. Nurses’ experience of palliative care continues despite the death of the child. Aim: The aim was to describe nurses’ experiences of palliative care of children. Method: A literature study was done where seven scientific articles where found. Keywords were identified, interpretated and then rebuilt. Findings: The nurses’ experiences were affected by relations, nursing work and by managing their feelings. Education, experience and organisation were also significant. Conclusion: Education, experience, self-knowledge and good self-confidence made the experience of giving palliative care to children more positive. The studie could be useful as a inspiration source to further studies. All this to be able to see what kind of support nurses need to cope with their experiences of palliative care of children.
