Nurses’ experience of caring for patients in palliative care : A literature review (Albanian)
Abstract [en]

Background: Palliative care is performed by nurses to improve quality of life for patients who face life-threatening disease. Nurses should apply person-centered care as a part of palliative care and focuses on the patient as a person as well as a patient. The tasks included in palliative care can be demanding for the nurses performing them. However, patients appreciate the nurses because they have an important purpose in regards to the patients and their relatives. In this literature study a Swedish concept called “The six S” was used to connect the findings to established theory. Aim: The aim of this literature review was to describe the experiences of nurses in Scandinavia in regards to caring for patients in palliative care. Method: A review over qualitative research connected to the aim was done in order to achieve the aim of this literature review.Result: Six different themes emerged regarding nurses’ experiences: Existential experiences of caring for patients in palliative care, Emotional experiences of caring for patients in palliative care,  Professionalism in caring for patients in palliative care, Professional growth in caring for patients in palliative care, Feeling powerless in caring for patients in palliative care, and, Feelings of uncertainty in caring for patients in palliative care. Conclusion: The literature study resulted in a description of nurses’ experiences. When shedding light on this subject, existing nurses, as well as future nurses, can feel seen and thus receive essential support in caring for patients in palliative care. Further research is required regarding nurses’ experiences in order to further shed light on the subject.
