Abstract [sv]
A large field for care is the palliative care. This starts when sickness no longer is curative. Here the care focuses on easing of the syptoms in order to reduce the suffering for these people who are at this stage. To be able to provide a good, professional care and by that to look to the whole person, knowledge, an overall vision and an ability to bring about a feeling of security to the patient are demanded. The aim of the study was to explore what affects the quality of life in people sick from cancer, who are in a palliative stage. Studies have also been made about how experience of pain is affected and how the pain affects the quality of life. The study is based on seintific articles. The selection of articles was made from patients point of wiew and from the year 1990 and ahead. The result shows that the quality of life and the pain could divided inte four seperate dimensions: Physical, Emotional, Social and Existential under which they will be presented, Quality of life and pain proved to be affected by elements of equal value. To mention some of them, age and KASAM were of great importance for the experienced quality of life and pain. Where younger people experienced inferior quality of life and had more strongly experiences of pain. People with hiigh KASAM experienced a high quality of life and were less affected by the pain. In section of debate similarities and differences in the varying dimensions are brought up. Here it appeared that age affects both the quality of life and the pain in all dimensions. There are shortcomings in the care of people who are in a palliative stage of their sickness. One way of raising the quality of this care is to include the whole person in the strategy for planning the care. Here it could be helpful with a collected study of what affects the experience of people about their quality of live.
