Abstract [en]
Integrity, a complex concept that includes many dimensions, is a part human nature and a prerequisite for being a whole person. Another aspect concerns acting according to general ethical rules principles, i.e. moral integrity. Preserving the patient´ integrity is an important aspect in nursing care, as a number of situations arises in which the patient can feel threatened or violated. The aim of this Swedish study to describe how male patients conceive integrity. Seventeen male patients were interviewed and the data was analysed by a phenomengraphic approach. The male patients expressed twelve different conceptions of integrity that were summarised into three description categories: self-respect, dignity and confidence. This means that patients give themselves integrity when they believe in themselves, have the courage to set boundaries, have control over themselves and their situation, and have the possibility of being alone. Caregivers can preserve the patient´s integrity by seing him trustworthy and as a whole person, and by showing respect. Confidence in a caring situations is characterised by trust in the professionals, a balance between the patient´s and the caregivers´ desires, patient participation, the possibility to be free and confidentiality of information. Integrity could be described as what something “is” and as a “relationship” with oneself and others. It is an absolute necessity for caregivers to treat patients in accordance with moral integrity in order preserve the patients´ integrity. The findings raise questions about female patients´ conceptions and about how patients react and express themselves when they feel threatened or violated.
