Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Adjuvant cytostatikabehandling används vid bröstcancer efter att tumören tagits bort. Biverkningar kan uppstå då cytostatika påverkar alla kroppens celler. För att sjuksköterskan ska kunna ge en god omvårdnad krävs det att hon/han får ta del av patienters upplevelser vid adjuvant cytostatikabehandling. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av adjuvant cytostatikabehandling vid bröstcancer. Metod: En litteraturöversikt som baserades på 13 vetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats utfördes. Resultat: Resultatet utgjordes av tre huvudkategorier: uppleva en förändrad kropp, uppleva ett förändrat sinne och upplevd påverkan på det sociala livet. Det framkom att kvinnorna upplevde både fysiska och psykiska biverkningar och dessa hade en stor påverkan på deras sociala liv. Slutsats: I slutsatsen betonas vikten av sjuksköterskans stöd i form av information och omvårdnad.
