Critical care nurse’s experiences of supporting family during the process of organ donation (English)
Abstract [sv]

När en patient drabbas av en total hjärninfarkt och blir aktuell för organdonation ställs det höga krav på intensivvårdssjuksköterskan. Tidigare studier visar att intensivvårdssjuksköterskor oroas av att vårda blivande organdonatorer och samtidigt stödja dennes närstående. Syftet var att belysa intensivvårdssjuksköterskors upplevelse av att stödja närstående till patienter med total hjärninfarkt i samband med organdonation. En kvalitativ metod med innehållsanalys av en fokusgruppsintervju genomfördes.

Det framkom två huvudkategorier, Närståendes behov och Intensivvårdssjuksköterskans förmåga att ge stöd. Intensivvårdssjuksköterskans upplevelse påverkades i hög grad av hur närstående reagerade på situationen gällande organdonationsprocessen. Intensivvårdssjuksköterskor känner sig kluvna och har svårt att få tiden att räcka till. De känner även ett behov av att bearbeta sina egna känslor men att verksamheten inte är anpassad för detta. Det är också viktigt för intensivvårdssjuksköterskor att vara neutrala i sitt stöd av familjen och inte påverka närstående med sina egna åsikter gällande organdonation.

Abstract [en]

When a patient suffers from a total brain infarction and becomes a candidate for organ donation, demands are high on critical care nurses. Previous studies shows that critical care nurses worries about nursing future organ donors and, at the same time, support their families. The aim of this pilot study was to shed light on critical care nurses’ experiences of supporting families to patients with total brain infarction during the process of organ donation. A qualitative method with content analysis of a focus group interview was conducted.

Two main categories emerged, The needs of the families and The critical care nurse ability to support. Critical care nurse’s experience was influenced by how the family reacted to the situation regarding the organ donation process. It was evident that critical care nurses feel ambivalent and have difficulties to find enough time. They also feel a need to process their own emotions but that the organization is not adapted for this. It is also important for critical care nurses to be neutral in their support towards the family and not affect families with their own opinions regarding organ donation. To a high extent, critical care nurses’ experiences were affected by how the families reacted to the situation.
