To live with involuntary sounds and movements : experiences of Tourette syndrome (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tourettes syndrom är ett neuropsykiatriskt tillstånd som kännetecknas av ticks, vilket är ofrivilliga rörelser och verbala läten. Tourettes syndrom förekommer hos 1 % av världsbefolkningen. Syndromet debuterar oftast mellan 3–10 års ålder och försvinner eller reduceras vanligen före 18 års ålder. Syftet med studien var att belysa personers upplevelser av att leva med Tourettes syndrom. Uppsatsen genomfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie där elva vetenskapliga artiklar analyserades. Följande huvudkategorier framkom i resultatet: upplevelser av att vara i sociala sammanhang samt upplevelser av att hantera tillvaron. Resultatet påvisade att personer med Tourettes syndrom upplevde svårigheter i sociala sammanhang, stigmatisering och att kamrater var viktiga i vardagen. Då knapphändig forskning finns om hur det är att leva med Tourettes syndrom, är det av vikt att sjuksköterskan får ökad förståelse om syndromet för att kunna personcentrera omvårdnaden. 

Abstract [en]

Tourette syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by ticks, which is involuntary movements and verbal sounds. Tourette syndrome affects 1% of the world population. The syndrome has it´s onset usually between 3-10 years of age and disappears or is reduced usually before the age of 18. The purpose of the study was to illuminate people's experiences of living with Tourette syndrome. The essay was carried out as a literature study where eleven scientific articles were analyzed and summarized. The following main categories emerged in the result: experiences of being in social situations and experiences of handling life. The results showed that people with Tourette syndrome experienced difficulties in social contexts, stigma and that peers were important in everyday life. Then there is scant research about what it's like to live with Tourette syndrome, it is important that the nurse gain a greater understanding about the syndrome to be able to give person-centered care.
