Patients’ experiences of living with peritoneal dialysis as a treatment : - A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

I takt med att befolkningen blir allt äldre och bakomliggande sjukdomar som hypertoni och diabetes ökar i samhället kommer allt fler drabbas av kronisk njursvikt. Något som kommer ställa krav på sjukvården både ekonomiskt och resursmässigt. Leva med kronisk njursvikt och dialysbehandling kan komma att påverka flera aspekter av patientens liv både psykiskt, fysiskt och socialt. Det är därför av vikt att sjuksköterskan har förmåga att individanpassa undervisning och omvårdnad utifrån patientens behov samt finnas till som stöd och vägledare. Studiens syfte var att beskriva patienters upplevelser av att leva med peritonealdialys (PD). Studien är utförd som en allmän litteraturstudie med systematisk metod. Genom bearbetning av vetenskapliga artiklar framkom tre kategorier. Att anpassa livet, att kroppen förändras och att relationer förändras. I resultatet framkom en bred variation av hur patienterna valde att integrera PD som en del av livet och hur de utformade strategier för att bemästra den nya situationen.  Hur patienterna upplevde sin behandling och dess påverkan på det vardagliga livet sågs olika bland deltagarna. Även sjuksköterskans roll visade sig mångdimensionell och betydande för denna patientgrupp. Ur resultatet framgick det att sjukvården behöver optimera patientundervisningen, person-centrera omvårdnaden och eliminera osäkerhet och rädsla hos patienter och anhöriga relaterat till okunskap.

Abstract [en]

In a society where people get older and conditions such as hypertension and diabetes is on the rise more people will get afflicted by chronic renal failure. Something that will make huge demands on healthcare, both financially and resourcefully. Living with chronic renal failure and dialysis treatment may affect several aspects of the patient's life, both mentally, physically and socially. It is therefore important that the nurse has the ability to individualize education and nursing according to the needs of the patient, as well as being able to support and guide. The aim of this study was to describe patients' experiences of living with peritoneal dialysis (PD). The study is conducted as a literature review with an systematic method. By processing scientific articles five categories revealed: to adapt life, the body changes and relationships takes new turns. In the result there was a broad variation of how the patients choose to integrate PD as a part of their lives and how they formed strategies to master their new situation. How the patients perceived their treatment and their impact on everyday life were seen differently among the participants. The nurse's role also turned out to be multidimensional and of great importance for this patient group.  From the results it emerged that health care has some work to do to optimize education, individualize nursing and eliminate the uncertainty and fear of patients and relatives related to the lack of knowledge.
