Strategies that people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease use to cope with everyday life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Antal personer som lider av Kronisk obstruktiv lungsjukdom (KOL) ökar både i Sverige och i världen. KOL beskrivs som en kronisk, progressiv sjukdom som orsakar en betydande känsla av ohälsa och leder till lidande. Luftflödeshinder med andnöd till följd är de vanligaste besvären, vilka är individuella och varierar från dag till dag. Sjukdomens besvär varierar i svårighetsgrad mellan olika individer men även förutsättningarna att hantera dem. Därmed finns det i vårdandet ett stort krav på kompetens hos sjuksköterskan. Syfte: Syftet var att belysa olika strategier som personer med KOL använder i hemmiljön för att hantera det dagliga livet. Metod: Allmän litteraturöversikt med kvalitativ design. Resultat: Strategier som används i hemmiljön av personer med KOL belystes i fyra kategorier: Kunskap och känsla av kontroll, anpassning av aktivitetsnivå, stöd och livsstilsförändringar. Slutsats: Vanliga strategier hos personer med KOL för att hantera det dagliga livet var att anpassa sin aktivitetsnivå till sin fysiska kapacitet, fördjupa sin kunskap om sjukdomen samt att se personer i sin omgivning som emotionellt och praktiskt stöd. Livsstilsförändringar kan medföra ökat välbefinnande. Forskning i framtiden behöver fokusera på hur patienters egenvårdsförmåga och autonomi kan stärkas.

Abstract [en]

Background: The number of people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is increasing both in Sweden and in the world. COPD is described as a chronic, progressive disease that causes a significant sense of illness and leads to suffering. Restricted airflow with shortness of breath are the most common problems, which are individual and vary from day to day. The disease severity and ways to cope, varies between individuals. The demand is high regarding the competence among nurses in the nursing care. Aim: The aim was to highlight different strategies that people with COPD use at home to manage their day-to-day life. Method: General literature overview with qualitative design. Results: Strategies used in the home environment of people with COPD were presented in four categories: Knowledge and sense of control, adaptation of activity level, support and lifestyle changes. Conclusion: Common strategies for people with COPD to manage daily life were to adjust their activity level to their physical capacity, to expand their knowledge of the disease and to see people in their environment as emotional and practical support. Lifestyle changes can lead to increased well-being. Future research needs to focus on how patients' self-efficacy and autonomy can be strengthened.
