When the nurse carries conscience on their shoulders : a literature study on stress of conscienc (English)
Abstract [sv]

I sjuksköterskans arbete ges omvårdnad till patienter där emotionella påfrestningar blir synliga för sjuksköterskan. När kraven blir större än vad sjuksköterskan klarar av samtidigt som hen är mottaglig för andra människors känslor uppkommer samvetsstress. Studiens syfte var att undersöka samvetsstress hos sjuksköterskan. Metoden i denna studie var en allmän litteraturstudie som innefattade 12 resultatartiklar. Resultatet resulterade i tre teman: bidragande faktorer, hälsoeffekter och förebyggande faktorer. Resultatet påvisade att en bristande arbetsmiljö och dåligt samvete är faktorer som generar samvetsstress och att sjuksköterskor har olika benägenhet att drabbas av samvetsstress beroende på sin bakgrund och sina erfarenheter. Samvetsstress går att förebygga genom att få stöd hemifrån, stöd ifrån organisationen och från arbetskollegor men även genom möjlighet till reflektion. En sjuksköterska som drabbas av samvetsstress får följder som påverkar privatlivet vilket slutligen kan leda till utbrändhet. Aktuell forskning om samvetsstress är otillräcklig. Ökade kunskaper och mer forskning inom området krävs för att minska detta relativt outforskade hälsoproblem.   

Abstract [en]

In the nurse's work, care is given to patients where emotional strain become visible to the nurse. When the demands become larger than the nurse can manage while he or she is susceptible to other people's feelings, stress of conscience occurs. The aim of the study was to explore stress of conscience in the nurse. The method in this study was a general literature study that included 12 result articles. The result resulted in three themes: contributing factors, health effects and preventive factors. The result demonstrated that an insufficient working environment and bad conscience are factors that generate stress of conscience and that nurses have different tendency to be affected by stress of conscience, depending on their background and their experiences. Stress of conscience can be prevented by getting support from home, support from the organization and from colleagues, but also through the opportunity of reflection. The nurse which are affected by stress of conscience will have consequences that affect his/her private life which eventually can lead to burnout. Present research on stress of conscience is insufficient. Increased knowledge and additional research on the subject is required to lessen this relatively unexplored health problem.
