Children's reactions when aclose relative is critically ill. (English)
Abstract [en]

Children need help to understand and manage when a close relative is critically ill or dying. The purpose of the literature study was to highlight children’s reactions when a close relative is gravely ill. The method used was a general literature study where ten scientific articles where analyzed and reviewed. The results were compiled in two themes: Experiences when life is threatened and To cope when life is threatened. Children with a critically ill relative are in great need of being met and supported by nurses in a professional manner. This is based  on knowledge and understanding of how children can experience, and how children cope in difficult situations like these. The results show that children take on great responsibility and often set themselves aside to help the ill and that many of the children experience the threat of loss as a constant fear. The result of the study can be used by nurses, in the clinical setting, who meet children with a critically ill family member to increase knowledge about the subject.
