The experience of activity after hip fracture from the older patient's perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Antalet höftfrakturer ökar med en allt åldrande befolkning. För individen kan det medföra psykiska och fysiska konsekvenser med risk för bestående funktionsnedsättning. Återhämtningen och rehabiliteringen är inte avslutad vid utskrivning utan fortsätter under en längre tid. Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur den äldre patienten med höftfraktur efter hemgång upplevde dagliga aktiviteter med fokus fysisk aktivitet. Metoden som användes var en allmän litteraturstudie med inspiration från kvalitativ analys i artikelbearbetningen. Resultatet beskrevs utifrån kategorierna Upplevelsen av begränsningar, Upplevelsen av minskad självständighet och Upplevelsen av att anpassning krävs. De äldre upplevde begränsningar efter höftfrakturer som nedsatt rörelseförmåga och fallrädsla vilket kunde resultera i en isolerad tillvaro med minskad självständighet i daglig- och fysisk aktivitet. Det psykiska måendet påverkades negativt till följd av begränsningar med känslor av frustration och nedstämdhet. Information om tiden efter höftfrakturen ansågs bristande. Ett behov av anpassning infann sig med tillämpning av olika strategier för att klara aktiviteterna. Litteraturstudiens resultat synliggör att återhämtningen var en lång process, präglad av begränsningar i utförandet av aktiviteter.

Abstract [en]

The number of hip fractures increases with an aging population. For the individual, it can have psychological and physical consequences with the risk of permanent disability. The recovery and rehabilitation is not completed at discharge but continues for a longer time. The aim of the study was to investigate how the elderly patient with hip fracture after returning home experienced daily activities focusing on physical activity. The method used was a general literature study with inspiration from qualitative analysis in the article processing. The result was described based on the categories The experience of perceived limitations, The experience of reduced independence and The experience of required adaptation. The elderly experienced limitations on hip fractures such as reduced mobility and fear of falling, which could result in an isolated existence with reduced independence in daily- and physical activity. The mental attitude was adversely affected by limitations with feelings of frustration and depression. Information about the time after the hip fracture was considered lacking. A need to adapt occurred with the application of different strategies to cope with activities. The results of the literature study shows that the recovery was a long process, characterized by the limitations in the performance of activities.
