Abstract [sv]

Varje år drabbas cirka 300 familjer i Sverige av någonting ingen familj bör få uppleva; att ett barn får en cancerdiagnos. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva mödrars upplevelser efter att förlorat ett barn i cancer. En kvalitativ design valdes och textmaterialet samlades in utifrån fem bloggar. Studien utgick från en deduktiv ansats med Antonovskys salutogena modell, känsla av sammanhang (KASAM), som teoretisk utgångspunkt. För att komma år den underliggande innebörden användes latent tolkning. Resultatet delades in i tre huvudkategorier; upplevelsen av begriplighet, upplevelsen av hanterbarhet och upplevelsen av meningsfullhet. I resultatet framkom bland annat att bloggskrivandet och kvarlevande syskon stärkte graden av KASAM. Bristande KASAM upptäcktes hos mödrarna då de hade oförståelse om varför deras barn avlidit, vilket ledde till negativa känslor. Författarna anser att mödrarna i bloggstudien upplever en god KASAM med en ovanlig kombination av komponenterna. För att sjuksköterskan ska kunna göra det möjligt att hjälpa närstående att hantera, vad som kan vara en svår och förödande tid, krävs vidare utbildningar kring sorghantering.

Abstract [en]

Every year, about 300 families in Sweden faces something no family should have to experience; that a child is diagnosed with cancer. The purpose of this study was to describe mother’s experiences after having lost a child to cancer. A qualitative design was chosen and the text material was acquired from five different blogs. The study proceeded from a deductive approach, using Antonovsky´s salutogenic theory; Sense Of Coherence (SOC) as the theoretical base. Latent interpretation is used to access the underlying meaning. The results were divided into the three main categories; the experience of comprehensibility, the experience of manageability and the experience of meaningfulness. For instance, it was found that blog writing and surviving siblings strengthened the degree of SOC. Insufficient SOC was discovered amongst mothers who couldn’t comprehend why their child had died, which led to negative feelings. The authors believe that the mothers in the blog study experienced a good SOC with an unusual combination of components. Additional training for nurses regarding grief management is required, to be able to help families through this difficult and devastating period of their lives.
