Yoga as a nursing intervention for individuals with major depression : A literature study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Depression är en komplex sjukdom som orsakar flest förlorade år på grund av nedsatt funktionsförmåga i såväl höginkomst- som låginkomstländer. De vanligaste behandlingsformerna som erbjuds patienter idag ger inte alltid fullgod symptomlindring och patienter efterfrågar komplementära omvårdnadsåtgärder. Sjuksköterskan behöver känna till olika omvårdnadsåtgärder för att kunna tillgodose varje enskild patients önskemål och behov. Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva vilken påverkan yoga har på depression. En allmän litteraturstudie genomfördes och resultatet bygger på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar som behandlar yogautövningens antidepressiva effekt på individer med diagnostiserad depression. De vetenskapliga artiklarnas resultat granskades och en innehållsanalys genomfördes. Yogautövning hade en påverkan på depressiva symptom och litteraturstudiens resultat presenteras under två teman, Yogans lindrande funktion vid depression och Yogans stärkande funktion vid depression. Deltagarna i studierna fick bland annat minskade negativa tankemönster, stressreduktion, förbättrad sömn, förbättrad självkänsla samt möjlighet att bryta isolering. För att stärka den vetenskapliga grunden för yogautövningens antidepressiva effekt behövs fler longitudinella randomiserade kontrollerade studier genomföras inom området.

Abstract [en]

Depression is a complex disorder causing most years lost due to disability in highincome countries as well as low-income countries. The most common treatments offered patients today does not always provide sufficient relief of symptoms and patients seek for complementary nursing interventions. The registered nurse need to have knowledge about different nursing interventions to provide the care each patient needs and asks for. The purpose of this study was to describe the effect yoga had on depression. A literature review was conducted and the result is based on the results of 11 scientific articles examining the antidepressant effect of yoga for individuals with major depression. The results of the scientific articles were reviewed and a content analysis was conducted. Yoga had an effect on depressive symptoms. The result of the literature review is presented as two themes, The relieving function of yoga and The enhancing function of yoga. The benefits the participants received from yoga was for example reduced ruminations, stress reduction, improved sleep and self-esteem. They could also break the pattern of isolation. Future research should include larger longitudinal randomized controlled studies to strengthen the scientific basis for the antidepressant effect yoga has on depression.
