To live with glaucoma : A systematic literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Glaukom är en kronisk ögonsjukdom med ett progressivt förlopp som kan leda till permanent synnedsättning. I likhet med andra kroniska sjukdomar påverkar den vardagen för den drabbade. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa upplevelser av att leva med sjukdomen glaukom. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en systematisk litteraturstudie med kvalitativ design och induktiv ansats. Den baserades på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: Litteraturstudien resulterade i sex kategorier: rädsla, frustration, tillit, kunskap, självständighet och acceptans. Slutsats: Sjukdomen medför ofta negativ påverkan på det dagliga livet. Det är viktigt att ögonsjuksköterskan har goda kunskaper för att vidta relevanta omvårdnadsåtgärder för personer med glaukom. Ökat fokus på psykologiskt stöd och patientutbildning bör ingå i ögonsjuksköterskeutbildningen då ögonsjuksköterskor spelar en viktig roll i mötet med dessa personer. Då både befolkning och antalet äldre förväntas öka är det av stor vikt att mer forskning genomförs vilket skulle generera kunskap om att leva med glaukom vilket skulle gynna både ögonsjuksköterskorna och samhället.

Abstract [en]

Background: Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease with a progressive course that can lead to permanent visual impairment. Like other chronic diseases, it affects the daily life of the sufferer. Aim: The aim of the literature study was to elucidate experiences of living with the disease glaucoma. Method: The study was conducted as a systematic literature study with a qualitative design and inductive approach. It was based on 11 scientific articles. Results: The literature study resulted in six categories: fear, frustration, trust, knowledge, independence, and acceptance. Conclusion: The disease often has a negative impact on daily life. It is important that the ophthalmic nurse has good knowledge in order to take relevant nursing measures for people with glaucoma. Increased focus on psychological support and patient education should be included in the ophthalmic nurse training as ophthalmic nurses play an important role in meeting these people. As both the population and the number of elderly people are expected to increase, it is of great importance that more research is carried out which would benefit both ophthalmic nurses and society.
