Living with brain tumor : Persons experiences in daily life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Personer med hjärntumör lever med fysiska, kognitiva och neurologiska symtom beroende på tumörens lokalisation, de lever med osäkra prognoser och oro för framtiden och deras anhöriga. Genom att anta ett holistiskt perspektiv kan sjuksköterskan värna om personens behov och erbjuda stödjande resurser. Litteraturstudiens syfte var att belysa hur vuxna personer med hjärntumör upplever dagligt liv. Studien genomfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie. I studiens resultat framkom att personer upplever begränsningar i vardagen till följd av sina symtom, att de upplever en förändrad psykosocial situation, att de har ett stort behov av information, men även att de har ett inneboende hopp och använder sig av copingstrategier. Sjuksköterskan bör se individen bakom sjukdomen, och uppmärksamma hens behov och önskningar. Informationen bör vara individuellt anpassad efter personens kognitiva förmågor och kommunikation med de anhöriga bör främjas. Sjuksköterskan bör ge emotionellt stöd och på så sätt stödja personen i att acceptera sin livssituation samt finna styrka och hopp. Mer forskning om personer med hjärntumör i arbetsför ålder krävs såsom hur de upplever möjligheten att få information om de långsiktiga konsekvenserna när de återgått till dagligt liv efter behandling.

Abstract [en]

Persons with brain tumor lives with physical, cognitive and neurological symptoms depending on where the tumor is located, they live with unsure prognosis and anxiety about the future and their relatives. The nurse can protect the needs of the person and offer supporting resources by adopting a holistic approach. The aim of the study was to illustrate how adults with brain tumors experience daily life. The study was conducted as a general literature study. The result of the study illustrates persons experiencing limitations in daily life activities, a changed psychosocial situation, a need for information but also an intrinsic hope and strategies to cope. The nurse should see the individual behind the disease and pay attention to their needs and desires. The information given should be individually customized to the persons cognitive abilities and the communication with their relatives should be promoted. The nurse should give the person emotionally support and by that support the person in accepting their new way of living life and to feel strength and hope. More research about persons with brain tumor in working age is needed, such as how they experience the possibility to recieve information about the long-term consequences when they returned to daily life after treatment.
