Quality of life after prostatectomy : - A litterature study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Prostatacancer är den vanligaste cancerformen i Sverige som kan behandlas med en prostatektomi där prostatan opereras bort. Denna operation medför risker för sidoeffekter vilket kan påverka mannens livskvalitet. Det förekommer flera olika mätinstrument för att mäta livskvalitet. Syftet var att beskriva faktorer som kan påverka livskvalitet hos män med prostatacancer som genomgått en prostatektomi. Metoden var en litteraturöversikt baserad på kvantitativ inriktning. Fjorton artiklar togs fram till studien med hjälp av databasen Cinahl. Alla inkluderade artiklar hade någon form av etiskt ställningstagande. Kategorier som skapades var: fysiska faktorer, psykologiska faktorer och sociala faktorer. Resultatet visar att fysiska, psykologiska och sociala faktorer kan försämras efter en prostatektomi och kan påverka männens livskvalitet. Slutsatserna var att främst urinfunktionen och den sexuella förmågan försämras vid en prostatektomi. Studien ger kunskaper till omvårdnadspersonal om hur en prostatektomi kan påverka patientens livskvalitet för att de på så vis ska kunna ge ett bättre bemötande till denna patientgrupp. Omvårdnadspersonal bör undervisa och informera patienten om troliga sidoeffekter en prostatektomi kan medföra innan behandlingen påbörjats.

Abstract [en]

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Sweden and can be treated with a prostatectomy where the prostate is surgically removed. This operation entails risks for side effects which may affect the man's quality of life. There are several different instruments to measure quality of life. The aim was to describe the factors that can affect quality of life in men with prostate cancer who have undergone prostatectomy. The method was a literature study based on a quantitative approach. Fourteen articles for the study were found using the Cinahl database. All included articles had some sort of ethical stance. Categories that were created were: physical factors, psychological factors and social factors. The results indicate that the physical, psychological and social factors diminish after a prostatectomy, and thus affect the quality of life. The conclusions were that mainly the urinary function and the sexual ability declines at a prostatectomy. The study provides knowledge to nursing staff about how a prostatectomy may affect the patient's quality of life to be able to give a better treatment to this population. Nursing staff should educate and inform the patient of likely side-impact a prostatectomy can cause before beginning treatment.
