Self-management in relation to older people living with chronic disease - a concept analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

Previous research indicates that elderly people want to be independent and have the opportunity to stay in their own homes for as long as possible despite chronic disease. The district nurse can, by promoting the persons ability to self-management, create conditions for the elderly to be able to live at home. In this study, a conceptual analysis of self-management was done. Self-management is a term that has no clear definition and is under development. There is no matching swedish word. The purpose was to illustrate how self-management is used in relation to elderly people living with chronic disease. The study has an inductive approach. The method is based on Rodgers' evolutionary concept analysis, a valid method for developing knowledge in nursing science. The result shows that self-management in relation to elderly people with chronic disease can imply both benefits and risks. The benefits can be increased confidence in their own ability as well as increased knowledge about the disease. The risks may be loneliness and anxiety. In summary, the study shows that research should focus on how the district nurse can contribute knowledge in order for older people to adopt self-management, but also the importance of including the negative aspects that self-management can cause.

Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning indikerar att äldre personer vill vara självständiga och ha möjlighet att bo kvar i det egna hemmet så länge som möjligt trots kronisk sjukdom. Distriktssköterskan kan genom att främja personens förmåga till self-management skapa förutsättningar för att de äldre ska kunna klara sig hemma. Studien genomfördes som en begreppsanalys av self-management. Self-management är ett begrepp som inte har någon entydig definition och som är under utveckling. Det finns inte något motsvarande svenskt ord. Syftet var att belysa hur self-management används i relation till äldre personer som lever med kronisk sjukdom. Studien har en induktiv ansats. Metoden utgår från Rodgers evolutionära begreppsanalys, en metod för att utveckla kunskap inom omvårdnadsforskningen. Resultatet visar att selfmanagement i relation till äldre personer med kronisk sjukdom kan innebära både förtjänster och risker. Förtjänsterna kan vara en ökad tilltro till den egna förmågan samt ökad kunskap om sjukdomen. Riskerna kan vara ensamhet och ångest. Sammanfattningsvis så visar studien att forskningen framöver bör fokusera på hur distriktssköterskan kan bidra med kunskap för att äldre personer ska kunna anta selfmanagement. Det är viktigt att även inkludera de negativa aspekter som selfmanagement kan medföra.
