Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: En miljard människor i världen lever med hypertoni. Hypertoni är en riskfaktor till flera allvarliga sjukdomar och dödsfall. Med behandling i ett tidigt stadium kan risken för komplikationer minska. Följsamheten till egenvård vid hypertoni är relativt låg och alla patienter hanterar sina egenvårdsstrategier på olika sätt. Hur patienter upplever egenvården påverkas av flera olika erfarenheter. Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva hur vuxna personer upplever egenvården vid hypertoni. Metod: En litteraturöversikt som innefattade tio kvalitativa artiklar gjordes. Analysarbetet utfördes baserat på Fribergs femstegsmodell. Resultat: Resultatet baserades på tre huvudkategorier. I resultatet belystes vikten av att hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal gav deltagare kunskap och information om sjukdomen. Det framkom hur hälso- och sjukvårdspersonals bemötande och stöd påverkade hur väl egenvården utfördes. Deltagare upplevde svårigheter att följa ordinerade livsstilsförändringar och läkemedelsbehandling. Personligt stöd underlättade för deltagarna att utföra egenvårdsåtgärder. Slutsats: Patienter upplevde en tydlig brist i egenvården vid hypertoni. Följsamheten till olika egenvårdsåtgärder kunde öka och bli bättre när rätt kunskap, information och bemötande gavs till deltagarna. Slutsatsen beskriver att hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal behöver mer utbildning om hur varje patient kunde stärkas till en bättre egenvård.

In the result the importance of healthcare professionals giving correct information about the disease emerged. Participants also described how the support and personal treatment affected their adherence to self-care. Participants described that they had difficulties with adherence to lifestyle changes and drug treatment. Participants experienced that personal support could help the participants to manage the self-care.  Conclusion: Patients experienced a lack in the self-care of hypertension. The adherence to different types of self-care and self-management could be better when the right knowledge, information and treatment is given. The conclusion was that healthcare professionals needed more education about how to strengthen and motivate the patients to a better self-care.
