Children of parents with cancer : Experiences and coping-mechanisms (English)
Abstract [sv]

Många människor i alla åldrar insjuknar varje år i cancer. I Sverige insjuknar mer än 7000 personer i åldrarna 20-54 år. I denna åldersgrupp är det många som har barn. Dessa barn kan ha blandade upplevelser och reaktioner på sin förälders sjukdom, vilket kan vara av vikt för sjuksköterskan att känna till, för att kunna ge dessa barn ett bra stöd. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva barns upplevelser och coping-mekanismer av att leva med en förälder som har cancer. Metod: Studien utfördes som allmän litteraturstudie. Till studiens resultat användes åtta vetenskapliga artiklar samt en avhandling. Dessa analyserades genom manifest innehållsanalys. Resultat: Analysen ledde fram till tre huvudkategorier; Negativa upplevelser, Positiva upplevelser och Coping. Därefter delades coping in i problematiserande coping och emotionell coping. Diskussion: Att få tala om förälderns cancer med professionell personal visade sig vara ett önskemål som förekom bland de äldre barnen. Sjuksköterskor och annan sjukvårdspersonal borde tillgodose dessa behov för att lindra barnens oro. För att få större kunskap om detta område föreslås fortsatt forskning på hur sjukvårdspersonal kan ge stöd till barn som har en förälder med cancersjukdom.

Abstract [en]

Many people of all ages fall ill each year with cancer. In Sweden, more than 7000 people aged 20-54 years are diagnosed. In this age, many have children. These children may have mixed experiences and reactions to their parent's illness, which may be important for the nurse to know in order to give these children good support. Purpose: The purpose was to describe children's experiences and coping-mechanisms of living with a parent with cancer. Method: The study was conducted as a literature review. To study the results eight scientific papers were used and dissertations were used. These were analyzed by manifest content analysis. Results: The analysis resulted in three main categories: Negative experiences, Positive experiences and Coping. Then coping was divided into problem-oriented coping and emotional coping. Discussion: To speak about the parent's cancer with a professional was a need identified among the older children. Nurses and other health care professionals should address these needs in order to alleviate children's anxiety. To obtain greater knowledge of this area suggested further research was suggested on how professionals can support children who have a parent with cancer.
