Compassion in nursing – to be or not to be (English)
Abstract [sv]

Medlidande är kärnan i vårdandet men saknar en enhetlig definition inom vårdvetenskapen. Därför är det av stor betydelse att begreppet medlidande definieras, synliggörs och artikuleras för att evidensbaserad omvårdnad ska kunna utövas i en caring- nursingtradition. Syftet med studien var att belysa vad medlidande är och kan vara inom omvårdnad. En systematisk litteraturstudie genomfördes och baseras på 8 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet presenteras i 5 olika kategorier: personcentrerad vård, attityder, kommunikation, närvaro i tiden och miljöpåverkan. Dessa kategorier belyser medlidande i såväl vårdvetenskapens teori som omvårdnadens praxis samt de hinder som kan orsaka att medlidande inte förmedlas. Resultatet betonar att patientens upplevelse av medlidande är beroende av hur sjuksköterskan behandlar dem. Om sjuksköterskan har ett självmedvetet förhållningssätt kan medlidande förmedlas genom samtal, bekräftelse och fysisk beröring. Medlidande inom omvårdnad finns beskrivet i teorin i mindre omfattning men än mindre i den kliniska verkligheten, därför behövs ytterligare forskning utföras för att begreppet medlidandet synliggörs och för att kunna tillämpas mer inom utbildning och i sjuksköterskans profession. 

Abstract [en]

Compassion is the core of nursing but the definition of the concept is deficient within nursing science. Therefore it is important to define, visualize and articulate the concept of ompassion to make evidence based care available in caring- and nursingtradition. The aim of the study was to enlighten what compassion is and can be within nursing. A systematic literature review study was made and 8 articles of scientific quality were included. The result was presented in 5 different categories: Person-centred care, Attitudes, Communication, Presence in time and Environmental impact. These categories illuminate the compassionate caring in Nursing Science and caring practice as well as the barriers which could prevent the intermediary of compassionate care. The result emphasizes the patient’s experience of compassion is dependent by how nurses treat them. Compassion can be mediated through

conversations, confirmation and physical touch. However the nurse must be selfaware in her approach to the patient. Compassion in nursing is described in theory but lack of clinical value in nursing, further research it is therefore needed for the concept of compassion to become more visible and applied in nursing education and in caring practice.
