Factors influencing the decision to seek care among people with PTSD : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Allt fler människor utsätts och upplever traumatiska händelser i livet. I samband med detta ökar risken att fler drabbas av Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Att lida av symtom från PTSD kan ge flertalet psykiska och fysiska problem, vilket gör det betydelsefullt för dessa personer att uppsöka vård. Syfte: Belysa de faktorer som påverkat beslutet att söka vård bland personer med PTSD. Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie genomfördes med sökningar i två databaser där tio vetenskapliga artiklar som överensstämde med syftet inkluderades till resultatet. Resultat: I resultatet framkom det att personer med PTSD upplevt en stor mängd faktorer som påverkat beslutet att söka vård. De fyra kategorier som framkom var: tillgänglighet till vården, tidigare vårderfarenheter och möjlighet till delaktighet, stigma samt kunskap och förståelse. Konklusion: Sammanfattningsvis framställdes främst tillgänglighet till vård och stigma som faktorer som påverkat personer med PTSD till att söka vård eller inte. Vikten av ökad kunskap om sjukdomen samt individuellt anpassad vård identifierades som positiva faktorer som påverkat beslutet att söka vård för PTSD. Resultatet ger värdefull information till sjuksköterskor och blivande sjuksköterskor för att öka förståelsen kring vårdbehov hos personer med PTSD. Mer forskning och förbättrat arbete i ämnet behövs för att öka kunskapen och tillgängligheten till vård för PTSD samt minska stigmat kring att söka hjälp.

Abstract [en]

Background: More people are exposed to and experience traumatic events in their lives. Therefore, the risk of suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also increases. Suffering from symptoms of PTSD causes several mental and physical problems, which makes it important for these people to seek treatment. Aim: To identify factors influencing the decision to seek treatment among people with PTSD. Method: This study was conducted as a general literature study with searches in two databases where ten articles that were consistent with the purpose were included in the result.Results: The result revealed that people with PTSD experience a significant number of factors that influence their decision to seek treatment. The four categories were: accessibility to care, previous experiences in care and chance to participate, stigma and knowledge and understanding. Conclusion: In summary, accessibility and stigma were mainly produced as factors that affect people with PTSD to seek treatment. The importance of increased knowledge about the disease and personalized care is identified as positive factors as an individual decision to seek care for PTSD. The results provide valuable information to nurses and future nurses to increase understanding of the care needs of people with PTSD. More research and improved work on the subject is needed to increase knowledge about and accessibility to care for PTSD and reduce the stigma around seeking help.
