Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Diabetes är en av de främsta orsakerna till synnedsättning och blindhet. Dåförekomsten av diabetes ökar utgör de synrelaterade komplikationerna ett växande globalt hälsoproblem. En ökad förståelse för hur personer med diabetesretinopati upplever att synnedsättning påverkar deras dagliga kan vara till stor hjälp i mötet med dessa personer. Syfte:Syftet med studien var att beskriva personers upplevelser av att leva med diabetesretinopati. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie. Vetenskapliga, empiriska studier med kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats ligger till grund för studien. Resultat: Studiens resultat redovisas utifrån tre olika teman: känsla av delaktighet, känsla av begränsningar och känsla av otillräcklighet. Diskussion: Sjuksköterskan bör vara professionell i mötet med patienten. Kommunikation, undervisning och en helhetssyn av personens upplevelse av sin livssituation ligger till grund för personens vård och behandling. Det är viktigt med hälsofrämjande insatser för att kunna förebygga komplikationer.
