The experience of living with Schizophrenia (English)
Abstract [sv]

Schizofreni är en psykisk sjukdom där personens upplevelse av sjukdomen är en viktig utgångspunkt för sjuksköterskans omvårdnad. För att förbättra vården krävs mer kunskap om hur det är att leva med schizofreni. Syftet med studien var därför att beskriva upplevelsen av att leva med den psykiska sjukdomen schizofreni. Studien genomfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie. Litteratursökningen gjordes systematiskt, vilket gav 14 vetenskapliga artiklar som utformade resultatet. En innehållsanalys genomfördes, vilket resulterade i tre kategorier: utanförskap, förluster och värdefullt liv. Resultatet visade att personer med schizofreni kände ensamhet och utanförskap. Sjukdomen bidrog även till stora förluster i livet. Trots motgångar framkom flera faktorer som kunde leda till ett värdefullt liv. Personer med schizofreni upplevde att hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal behövde visa hänsyn, lyssna samt ge utrymme för att kunna skapa ett gott vårdande. En ökad kunskap om sjukdomen rekommenderas för att minska stigmatiseringen av schizofreni. Fortsatt forskning om hur hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal bör bemöta personer med schizofreni efterfrågas.

Abstract [en]

Schizophrenia is a mental illness where the person’s experience of the disease is an important basis for nursing care. To improve the care, more knowledge is required about the experience of living with schizophrenia. The aim of the study was to describe the experience of living with the mental illness schizophrenia. The study was conducted as a literature study. The literature search was done systematically, resulting in 14 scientific articles that shaped the outcome of the study. A content analysis was conducted, which resulted in three categories: alienation, losses and valuable life. The results showed that people with schizophrenia feel loneliness and alienation. The disease also contributed to huge losses of life. Despite setbacks several factors that could lead to a meaningful life was revealed. To create good caring, people with schizophrenia felt that health professionals need to show respect, listen and give space. Increased knowledge about the disease is recommended to reduce the stigma of schizophrenia. Further research on how health professionals should behave against people with schizophrenia is requested.
