Expressions and valuation of pain in people with Alzheimer´s Disease (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Alzheimers är en långsam progressiv sjukdom och är den vanligaste demenssjukdomen. Sjukdomen innebär försämrat närminne och begränsar kommunikationsförmågan. Hur smärta uttrycks i jämförelse med friska personer i samma ålder är oklart. Syfte: Syftet var att belysa hur personer med Alzheimers sjukdom uttrycker sin smärta. Metod: Arbetet var en litteraturöversikt med systematiska sökningar som gjordes i tre databaser. Resultat: Denna litteraturstudie belyste tre olika kategorier: Variation av uttalad smärtintensitet, manifestation av smärta och skattning av smärta. Slutsats: Det som framträdde var att hur personer med Alzheimers sjukdom uttryckte sin smärta inte gick att generalisera, smärta upplevdes olika för varje individ. Observerande skalor var att föredra framför självskattningsskalor vid bedömning av smärta hos personer med Alzheimers sjukdom.
