The patients experience of living with acute myeloidleukemia (English)
Abstract [sv]

Akut myeloisk leukemi (AML) är en invasiv sjukdom som kräver en stor omställning för patienten. Sjuksköterskan har därmed en betydelsefull roll för att kunna bidra till professionell omvårdnad. Syftet med studien var att beskriva patientens upplevelse av att leva med sjukdomen AML. Studien var en litteraturstudie där tio resultatartiklar inkluderades, fem kvalitativa och fem kvantitativa. Innehållsanalys användes som analysmetod, vilket resulterade i tre kategorier: upplevelsen av begränsningar i livet, behovet av stöd och upplevelsen av välbefinnande. I resultatet framkom det att patienter med AML upplever begränsningar i vardagen och vanligtvis är symtomen anledningen till det. Stödet, både professionellt och socialt, har stor betydelse för patienterna. Livskvaliteten hos patienterna kan påverkas både positivt och negativt under sjukdomsförloppet. För att omvårdnaden och bemötandet av patienter med sjukdomen skall förbättras krävs det mer forskning kring ämnet omvårdnad och hur patienternas upplevelse av sjukdomen ser ut.

Abstract [en]

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an invasive disease that requires a major transformation for the patient. The nurse therefore has an important role in contributing to professional nursing. The purpose of the study was to describe the patients experience of living with the disease AML. The study was a literature study where ten result articles were included, five qualitative and five quantitative. Content analysis was used as an analytical method, which resulted in three categories: experience of life limitations, the need for support and the experience of well-being. It appears that patients with AML feel limited in everyday life, usually the symptoms are the cause of the restrictions. Support, both professionally and socially, is of great importance to patients with AML. The quality of life of patients can be affected both positively and negatively during the disease. In order to improve nursing and treatment of the patients, more research is needed on the subject of nursing and how the patients experience the disease.
