Nurses attitude towards patients who are overweight in nursing care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Övervikt är ett tilltagande problem med sjukskrivningar som leder till ökade kostnader i samhället. Sjuksköterskor kommer ibland i kontakt med patienter med övervikt i olika vårdsammanhang. För att kunna hjälpa patienter med övervikt bör sjuksköterskor använda sig av en attityd utan att kränka patienten. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka sjuksköterskors attityder till patienter med övervikt inom sjukvården. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie och baserades på tolv vetenskapliga artiklar varav åtta kvantitativa och fyra kvalitativa studier. Resultat: Fyra huvudkategorier och två underkategorier framträdde som essentiella för sjuksköterskors attityder till övervikt. Huvudkategorierna var: Sjuksköterskors attityd och erfarenhet av patienter med övervikt, Sjuksköterskors attityd till patienter i relation till sin egen vikt, Sjuksköterskors attityd på grund av osäkerhet och rädsla samt Sjuksköterskors attityd till att ta upp ämnet övervikt med patienter. Slutsats: Resultatet i denna studie visar att ökad kunskap och ökad reflektion kan hjälpa sjuksköterskor att vara professionella och neutrala i mötet med personer med övervikt.
