Abstract [sv]

Palliativvård innebär att ge en god vård till alla patienter oavsett sjukdom i livetsslut. Att lindra smärta med hjälp av omvårdnad är viktigt att eftersträva i denpalliativa vården och där har sjuksköterskan en viktig roll. Smärta i palliativvård är ett vanligt symtom som kan lindras genom omvårdnadshandlingar. Syftetvar att beskriva omvårdnad av patienter med smärta i palliativ vård. Eninnehållsanalys gjordes där två kvantitativa och sju kvalitativa vetenskapligaartiklar granskades. De nio vetenskapliga artiklar som granskades resulterade itre kategorier; Smärtbedömning, Komplementära behandlingsmetoder,Psykosocialt stöd. Resultatet i studien visar att omvårdnadshandlingar somkan lindra smärta är värme och kyla, distraktion, lägesändring, avslappning ochnärvaro. Psykosocialt stöd ges till både patient och anhöriga genom att geinformation och ha en bra kommunikation. Ett bra samarbete i teamet kringpatienten är viktigt för att främja smärtlindring. Bedömasmärta kan vara svårt på grund av att vissa kategorier av patienter inte kanförmedla verbalt att de upplever smärta. När närstående misstror sjuksköterskankan det också vara svårt att bedöma smärta. För att lindra smärta med hjälpa avomvårdnadshandlingar krävs kunskap, erfarenhet och god kommunikativ förmåga. Inomämnet finns det behov av fortsatta studier som exempelvis; hur användningen av smärtskattningsinstrumentoch dokumentation kan utökas i den palliativa vården.

Abstract [en]

The definition of palliative care is to provide a diligent care to all patients no matter what disease they suffer from in the end of life. To manage pain with nursing care in palliative care is important and the nurse has a significant role. Pain in palliative care is a symptom that often occurs and can be manage through nurse interventions. The aim is to describe nursing care of patients with pain in palliative care. A content analysis was made where nine scientific articles were audited. The nine scientific articles that were audited resulted in three categories; Pain assessment, Complementary treatment methods, Psychosocial support. The results of this study indicated that nurse interventions can relieve pain; heat and cold, distraction, change of position, relaxation and touch. Psychosocial support is given to both patients and relatives through information and communication. Teamwork in the palliative team is important to assess and manage pain in palliative care. Pain assessment can be hard because some patients cannot verbally tell that they suffer from pain. When family members were mistrustful of the care it was hard for the nurse to assess and manage pain. In order to relieve pain with the help of nursing documents, knowledge, experience and good communication skills are required. Within the subject there is a need for further studies such as; how the use of pain assessment instruments and documentation can be expanded in palliative care.
