The care staff ́s treatment of women with endometriosis : A literature study from a patient perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory disease whose prevalence is about ten percent of all women. The disease can take long time to be diagnosed and can cause infertility. The disease can negatively affect the quality of life. There is no curative treatment, but the pathological process can be alleviated. The care-staff often meet these women in different care institutions and therefore the care is important. Aim: The aim of this literature study was to describe women with endometriosis experiences of healthcare professionals’ approach in encounters with them. Method: Nine scientific articles with a qualitative approach analyzed thematically. Results: The analysis resulted in two themes. "The feeling of powerlessness" highlights the women's negative experience of the treatment from the care-staff that led to destructive feelings shaped by ignorance, lack of communication and normalization. The second theme, "Sense of faith in the future" clarifies the women's positive feelings because of constructive treatment. The women felt confirmed and could handle their situation better through empowerment. Conclusion: Women express that information from the health service is an important supporting factor, despite this they experience insufficient knowledge from care-staff. Through increased knowledge about endometriosis in care-staff, the understanding for what these women go through increases.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Endometrios är en kroniskt inflammatorisk sjukdom vars prevalens är cirka tio procent av alla kvinnor i fertil ålder. Sjukdomen kan orsaka smärta och infertilitet. Det tar ofta lång tid att bli diagnostiserad. Sjukdomen kan innebära att livskvaliteten hos dessa kvinnor påverkas negativt. Botande behandling finns för tillfället inte men det patologiska förloppet kan med behandling lindras och bromsas. Vårdpersonalen träffar ofta dessa kvinnor i olika vårdinstanser och därför är vårdpersonalens bemötande betydelsefullt. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att belysa kvinnors erfarenheter av vårdpersonalens bemötande vid endometrios. Metod: Nio vetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats analyserades tematiskt. Resultat: Analysen resulterade i två teman. Det första temat, “Känslan av vanmakt”, belyser kvinnornas negativa erfarenhet av bemötandet från vårdpersonalen som ledde till destruktiva känslor och gestaltas av normalisering, bristande kommunikation och okunskap. Andra temat, “Känsla av framtidstro”, klargör kvinnornas positiva känslor som resultat av vårdpersonalens konstruktiva bemötande. Kvinnorna kände sig bekräftade och kunde genom egenmakt bättre hantera sin situation. Slutsats: Kvinnorna uttrycker att information från vården är en viktig stödjande faktor för dem, trots detta upplever de otillräcklig kunskap från vårdpersonal. En ökad kunskap om endometrios hos vårdpersonalen ökar förståelsen för vad dessa kvinnor går igenom.
