Abstract [en]

 

Background: Self-injury can be defined as deliberate harm one's own body without conscious intent to commit suicide. These patients need skilled care. Purpose: Illuminate nursing staff attitudes and treatment of patients with self-injury behaviour for individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Method: A general literature study has been made. Based on the objective was a literature search in various databases with ten relevant articles were selected and reviewed. Results: The results were presented along four main categories: a challenging patient population, health professionals perceptions, attitudes before and after education and Attitude of health professionals when they feel they can help. The results show that some staff working with patients with self-injury behaviour may find that this can be a challenging patient group. Training and regular supervision of health workers is a positive change in attitude and response. Discussion: Through training and mentoring for health professionals obtain the knowledge required to get a different understanding of patients with self-injury behaviour. This may change their attitude that can lead to better care. Conclusions: These patients are unique individuals with special needs. Through education one can obtain the knowledge required to understand these patients, who in turn may lead to the nursing staff is able to maintain respect and understanding for these people.
