Judged beforehand – experiences of stigma in lung cancer (English)
Abstract [en]

Lung cancer is a disease which patients experience stigma in society and in care. This is because lung cancer is often seen as a self-inflicted disease. The stigma surrounding lung cancer is due to the strong relationship with smoking and have been shown to have a negative impact on the perceived health. The purpose of this study was to illuminate experiences of stigma for patients with lung cancer. The literature review was based on 11 scientific articles. The analysis resulted in three themes: experiences of being excluded out of context, experienced feelings surrounding stigma and the meeting within healthcare. Ignorance from healthcare and the community lead to patients with lung cancer feeling excluded, therefore it is important that nurses carry with them an awareness and good knowledge of stigma. The experience of stigma in patients with lung cancer was found to be reduced by good treatment and care from medical staff. Further qualitative research should be conducted that focuses on patients' experiences of stigma surrounding lung cancer both in the community and in healthcare. 

Abstract [sv]

Lungcancer är en sjukdom där patienter upplever sig stigmatiserade både i samhället och i vården eftersom lungcancer ofta ses som en självförvållad sjukdom. Stigmatiseringen kring lungcancer beror på det starka sambandet till rökning och har visat sig ha en negativ inverkan på den upplevda hälsan. Syftet med denna studie var att belysa upplevelser av stigmatisering av patienter med lungcancer. Litteraturstudien baserades på 11 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet utmynnade i tre teman: upplevelser av att bli utesluten ur sammanhang, upplevda känslor kring stigmatisering och mötet i vården. Okunskap från vården samt från samhället leder till att patienter med lungcancer upplever ett utanförskap, det är därför av stor betydelse att sjuksköterskor bär med sig en medvetenhet och god kunskap kring stigmatisering. Upplevelsen av stigmatisering hos patienter med lungcancer visade sig kunna minska genom ett gott bemötande från vårdpersonalen. Mer kvalitativ forskning bör bedrivas som fokuserar på patienters upplevelser kring stigmatisering vid lungcancer såväl i samhället som i vården.
