Relatives' need for support during home care of terminally ill adult cancer patients (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ett växande antal svårt cancersjuka människor föredrar att vårdas i hemmet. Närstående är en självklar del av modern palliativ vård, och det är en central uppgift för den palliativa vården att stödja även dem. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa närståendes behov av stöd vid vård i hemmet av vuxna cancersjuka i livets slutskede. Metod: Som underlag för denna litteraturstudie har 14 vetenskapliga artiklar använts inom tidsperioden 2001-2011. Resultat: Resultatet visade att närstående hade behov av stöd i den vårdande rollen av cancersjuk i hemmet som redovisas i 3 kategorier och 6 subkategorier. Det som framkom var betydelsen av att närstående var förberedda, att de fick stöd i att hantera den nya vardagen, samt att de fick bekräftelse i den vårdande rollen. Diskussion: Det var av betydelse att närstående kände sig delaktiga i beslutsprocessen att den cancersjuke vårdades i hemmet. Det var av vikt att närstående fick egen tid med professionella vårdare för samtal, samt blev sedda i den vårdande rollen. Närstående hade svårt att se den cancersjukes försämring och personlighetsförändring i betydelsen att livet närmade sig slutet.

Abstract [en]

Background: A growing number of seriously ill cancer patients prefer home care. Relatives are an integral part of modern palliative care and it is an essential task for the palliative care providers to support them as well. Aim: The aim of this literature based study was to highlight relatives’ need for support during home care of terminally ill adult cancer patients. Method: 14 scientific articles from 2001 to 2011 were used as the basis of this study. Results: The result showed that relatives’ need for support in their role as caregiver to cancer patients can be divided into three categories and six subcategories. It was shown how important it is for the relatives to be prepared, to receive support in handling their new everyday situation and to be recognised in their role as caregivers. Conclusion: It is imperative that relatives feel part of the decision process regarding home care of the cancer patient. Equally, it is significant to give relatives time on their own for dialogues with professional caregivers and for them to be acknowledged in their caregiving role. Relatives failed to see the deterioration and personality change in the cancer patient, due to that life was coming to an end.
