Relatives of stroke survivors : their need for information and support: literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Då en person drabbas av stroke blir han/hon beroende av hjälp och då känner anhöriga att de ofrivilligt får ansvaret att vårda sin familjemedlem. För de anhöriga är det oftast en ny okänd värld som öppnar sig och deras informationsbehov är stort. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att beskriva det behov av information och stöd som anhöriga till de som drabbats av stroke har. Metod: En litteraturstudie där 17 vetenskapliga artiklar granskades och en innehållsanalys gjordes enl. Forsberg och Wengström. Resultat: Studiens resultat presenteras med tre huvudkategorier: Upplevelsen av att vara anhörigvårdare; Anhörigas behov av information och stöd; Faktorer hos anhöriga som påverkar flödet av information. De flesta anhöriga ansåg att de inte fick tillräcklig och adekvat information under tiden deras familjemedlem vårdades på sjukhus. Detta kunde medföra osäkerhet och rädsla hos många anhöriga. Slutsats: Det är av stor betydelse att vårdpersonalen ger de strokedrabbades anhöriga individuellt anpassad information och stöd eftersom de förväntas bli deras informella vårdare efter utskrivning.

Abstract [en]

Background: When a person suffers a stroke, he/she become dependent on help and the relatives feel that they are involuntarily given responsibility to care for their family member. It is usually a new unknown world that is opening up for the relatives and their need for information is great. Purpose: The purpose of the literature study was to describe the need for information and support that the relatives of those affected by stroke have. Method: A literature review in which 17 scientific articles were reviewed and a content analysis was done according to Forsberg and Wengström. Results: The findings in this study are presented with three main categories: The experience of being carers; Relatives' need for information and support; Factors that affect the flow of information. Most families believe that they had not received adequate and appropriate information during the time their family member was admitted to hospital. This could result in uncertainty and fear within many relatives. Conclusion: It is very important that health professionals give the relatives of stroke victims individualized information and support because they're expected to become their informal carers after discharge.
