    • The purpose of this study was to identify the comprehensive picture of palliative care in the home, as experienced by the people involved. The study is a secondary analysis of three phenomenological studies including six cancer patients, six next of kin and six district nurses. Data were collected in qualitative interviews using an interview guide. The interviews were tape-recorded and transcribed verbatim. In this secondary analysis, data were analysed by hermeneutic analysis guided by Gadamer. The guiding questions during the reading were: Is there an advantage receiving palliative care at home? Is there a disadvantage receiving palliative care at home? The findings indicate that the advantages of palliative care at home is, striving for normal life, including the care in the home composed of physical care and emotional/mental care. Striving for normal life also includes emotional feelings, safety and resources and policies which regulates this activity. Disadvantages of palliative care at home are commitment, composed of adaptation and extra work, and demands, composed of frustration and uncertainty. If the people involved are to be able to manage the situation and optimize living while dying, there must be support and resources facilitating the situation. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd.

  • Receiving a diagnosis of inoperable lung cancer : Patients' perspectives of how it affects their life situation and quality of life
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Acta Oncologica. - 0284-186X .- 1651-226X. ; 47:5, s. 862-869

    • Lung cancer is a disease with many biomedical and psychological symptoms. The diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer induces adverse effects. Having an inoperable lung cancer there are few possibilities of being cured. Management of patients with inoperable disease is directed at relieving local or systemic symptoms. The purpose of this study is to describe how it affects the patients' life situation and quality of life. Data was collected by qualitative interviews where the patient's lived experiences were articulated. Twenty-three Swedish patients diagnosed and starting palliative treatment for inoperable lung cancer were interviewed. The interviews were audio-taped and transcribed verbatim. Data were interpreted trough interpretive phenomenology. Six themes were identified that were important for the informants' experience of their life situation and quality of life. The themes were: Experience of uncertainty, including time of waiting and thoughts, experience of hope, about a prolonged life, network as support, being treated as the person they are thoughts of death, is there time to conclude their lives?, feelings of shame and guilt, they have caused the disease by themselves and next of kin reactions, sadness, guilt, worries and anger. These six themes gave a structure presenting the essence: Living as usual. Maintaining independency and integrity were important, as well as maintaining status, being treated as the person they always had been and that they experience that they had a meaning to fulfill in life. They were living as usual. The findings of this study point out the importance of improving the care of people afflicted with lung cancer, as well as promoting support for the next of kin, since they are significantly important for these patients' experiences of quality of life. This knowledge and understanding will be useful for development of interventions and guidelines for treatment. © 2008 Taylor & Francis.

  • Living with breast cancer : Its effect on the life situation and the close relationship of women in Brazil
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Cancer Nursing. - 0162-220X .- 1538-9804. ; 30:6, s. 471-478
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer induces adverse effects. In this interpretive phenomenological study, 11 Brazilian women diagnosed and treated for breast cancer were interviewed. Data included audiotaped interviews where the women's lived experiences were articulated. Data were interpreted through Heidegger's existential phenomenology. Themes that were found were interrelated and presented the essential structure of the essence the women were living-living side by side with the phantom of death. The 4 themes that were interpreted and identified were as follows: gaining a positive attitude for life, wanting to be recognized as a woman with certain needs, considering body image/self-image, and making efforts to hide. The findings of the study point out the importance of the fact that illness elicits more than fitting the body into traditional community expectations or surrendering the body to professional medicine. Even with all the deep changes in their lives and changed life priorities, the women want to carry on and live the best life they could. To put this idea in the front line makes the difference for the transition of these women. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.

  • Social support as described by Swedish people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Primary Health Care Research and Development. - : Cambridge University Press. - 1463-4236 .- 1477-1128. ; 10:1, s. 26-37
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Social support can buffer the level and effects of stress. Diabetes mellitus (DM) requires self-care that is demanding and might cause stress. No previous studies focusing perceptions of persons with DM from their own perspective on the content, need and desire they might have for social support. Aim: To identify and describe the meaning of support and its impact on the life-situation of people diagnosed with Tye 2 DM in relation to gender, age, and duration of DM. Methods: Mixed Methods design combining Qualitative data collected by semi-structured interviews and quantitative data collected by Norbeck Social Support Questionnaire (NSSQ). Purposive sample – explore a complex concept 40 Swedish persons diagnosed Type 2 DM Aged 32-80 years (Md 59 yrs),24 men and 16 women. Duration of DM 0.5-39 yrs. Findings:  Heterogenous sample according to age, employment, duration of DM   but Homogenous picture of findings.  Meaning of the concept of support/social support: focus mainly on informative and emotional support. Non-supportive situations were described concerning the relationship and communication with the physician. Physicians not listening to the patient and whom informants perceived lacked competence in diabetes care were often described.  Support experienced while being diagnosed with DM was expressed by ♀, irrespective of duration of DM and yr diagnosed, as limited or non-existent negatively affecting their entire life- situation. Many claimed lack of support when diabetes was detected. Often diagnosed at health care centres in primary health care. Lack of informative support expressed as lack of competence and limited knowledge about DM in health care staff. When being managed at diabetes clinics adequate support was experienced. Need for support w as perceived as individual, varying and differing with regard to gender. Men were perceived to need more support than women, as women were considered having better networks. Young were stated to need more than older, as they have less experience and are going to live longer. Men scored higher on emotional support (p=0.021), aid (p=0.045) and network (p=0.026) than women More women were married but no differences in emotional support, social status and aid. Differences for those with grandchildren in emotional support (p=0.039) and in functional network properties (p=0.047) but not in aid. 20% of informants had lost an important relationship previous year. Mean number of people in network 6.5, r 1-20. In conclusion, DM demands knowledge about managing the disease and self-care, why informative and emotional support is important to gain control over the situation. Informants had perceived lack of support, particularly during the process of diagnosis of DM, in their contact with physicians and with primary health care.
