The experience of home-coming the day after a knee or hip arthroplasty : An interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Knä- och höftplastik är bland de vanligaste kirurgiska ingreppen och har en stor positiv inverkan för den enskilda individens livskvalitet. Det har utarbetats flera vårdmodeller för patientkategorin som genomgår en knä- eller höftplastik, dels för att minska vårdkostnader men även för att förbättra vården. Det behövs emellertid mera kunskap om patientens upplevelse eftersom vården är i ständig utveckling. Studiens syfte var att beskriva patientens upplevelse av hemgång från en specialiserad elektiv enhet, den första postoperativa dagen efter knä- eller höftplastik, och första tiden efteråt. Telefonintervjuer utfördes med 12 patienter, och analyserades enligt kvalitativ innehållsanalys, med en induktiv ansats. Resultatet utmynnade i fem huvudkategorier med respektive underkategorier. Huvudkategorierna som framkom var; Den betydelsefulla hemmiljön, Information från sjukhuset, Oundvikligt hjälpbehov, Återhämtningens utmaningar och Hälsofrämjande kontakt. Informanterna delade en positiv upplevelse av hemgång den första postoperativa dagen och kunde hantera eventuella svårigheter på ett adekvat sätt, på egen hand eller med stöd av medskickad dokumentation, anhöriga eller kontakt med sjukhuset. Hemgång dagen efter knä- eller höftplastik upplevs som tryggt.

Abstract [en]

Knee and hip arthroplasty are among the most common surgeries available today and have a great impact on the quality of life of the individual. Several care models have been developed for patients having had knee or hip arthroplasty, not only to address the cost of healthcare, but also to improve the quality of the care itself. However, more knowledge about a patients experience following surgery is required as the care is continually progressing. The purpose of this study was to document the experience of a patient following a knee or hip arthroplasty. We aim to document their experiences returning home from a specialized elective unit, their first day post operation, as well as the initial period of recovery. Phone call interviews were carried out with 12 patients, and analyzed according to qualitative content analysis with inductive approach. The results were divided into five main categories, each with their own sub-categories. The main categories were; the importance of the home environment, information from the hospital, the necessity of help, challenges of recovery and health promotion contact. The participants reported a positive experience returning home after the first postoperative day and were able to handle potential issues in an adequate manner; on their own, with support from informative documentation, with help from relatives or through contact with the hospital. The experience of returning home the first day post operation, after a knee or hip arthroplasty is considered comfortable.
