Factors affecting how patients with lung cancer experience their pain and meeting with the nurse (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Lungcancer är den femte vanligaste cancerformen och den cancerrelaterade dödsorsaken i Sverige. De flesta patienter som insjuknar i lungcancer är runt 70 år, knappt ett hundratal personer varje år insjuknar före 50-årsåldern. Syftet: Att beskriva faktorer som påverkar hur patienter med lungcancer upplever sin smärta och mötet med sjuksköterskan. Metod: En systematisk litteraturstudie genomfördes där både kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar granskades. Resultat: I resultatet visade att smärtupplevelsen och mötet med sjuksköterskan är individuell och beror på många olika faktorer. Den fysiska och psykiska smärtan hörde ihop och påverkade varandra . Patienterna upplevde att sjuksköterskornas tidsbrist kunde skapa missförstånd, att de fick bristfällig information och att deras smärta kunde underskattas. Diskussion: Resultatet diskuterades utifrån Travelbees omvårdnadsteori. Sjuksköterskan bör se patienten som en individ och bemöta patientens smärta med respekt, ge honom den tid, den förståelse och den information han behöver.

Abstract [en]

Background: Lung cancer is the fifth most common form of cancer and a cancer-related cause of death in Sweden. The majority of patients suffering from lung cancer are around 70 years old, barely a hundred people each year become ill before the age of 50 years. Purpose: To describe the factors that affect how patients with lung cancer experience their pain and the contact with the nurse. Method:  A systematic literature study was conducted in which both qualitative and quantitative articles were reviewed. Conclusion: The result showed that pain perception and the meeting with the nurse is individual and depends on many factors. The physical and mental pain went together and influenced each other. Patients felt that nurses' lack of time, could create misunderstandings, meaning that they could receive inadequate information and that their pain could be underestimated. Discussion: The results were discussed based on Travelbees nursing theory. The nurse should see the patient as an individual and treat his pain with respect, giving him the time, the understanding and the information he needs.
