Abstract [sv]

Varje år drabbas ca 300 barn av någon form av cancer i Sverige. Att ett barn insjuknar i cancer påverkar inte bara det sjuka barnet utan även föräldrarna. Cancerdiagnosen skapar en krissituation hos hela familjen. I samband med denna krissituation uppkommer även begreppet hopp. Föräldrars hopp i upplevelsen av att ha ett barn med cancer. För att föräldrarna ska kunna ha en chans att klara av den krävande situationen är det av betydelse att belysa de faktorer som kan påverka hoppet hos föräldrarna på ett positivt eller negativt sätt. Vad kan sjukvårdspersonalen göra för att eliminera de faktorer som utgör ett hot mot hoppet samt hur hopp ska upprätthållas. Vilket svarar mot litteraturstudiens syfte. Fem kategorier har identifieras som speglar resultatet för att beskriva faktorer som främjar och hotar hoppet; Kunskap ger hopp, Socialt stöd ger hopp, Familjecentrerad vård ger hopp, Hot mot hoppet och Framtidstro ger hopp. Är föräldrarna väl informerade, får socialt stöd från familj, vänner och andra föräldrar i liknande situation och har framtidstro gör det att föräldrarna har goda möjligheter att bibehålla hoppet. Dock finns det faktorer som kan hota känslan och upplevelsen av hopp.
