Intensive care nurses´experiences and management of their own grief (English)
Abstract [sv]

Intensivvårdssjuksköterskor vårdar svårt sjuka och döende patienter, vilket kan skapa känslor av sorg hos dem. Baserat på vad tidigare studier visat reagerar och hanterar sjuksköterskor och intensivvårdssjuksköterskor sin sorg på liknande sätt. Syftet med studien var att beskriva intensivvårdssjuksköterskors upplevelser och hantering av sin egen sorg på en intensivvårdsavdelning. Detta var en kvalitativ studie med sammanlagt sex ostrukturerade intervjuer, varav en var en pilotintervju. I resultatet framkom två kategorier, "Upplevelser av sorg" och "Hantering av sorg" samt fem subkategorier. Det var framför allt när intensivvårdssjuksköterskorna kunde identifiera sig med patienten eller situationen som de upplevde sorg. Situationer som handlade om barn, unga människor och plötsliga dödsfall väckte mycket sorg hos intensivvårdssjuksköterskorna. För att hantera sin sorg vände sig intensivvårdssjuksköterskorna främst till sina kollegor eller så bearbetade de sorgen på egen hand. Intensivvårdssjuksköterskorna tyckte att det var positivt med det stöd som fanns på intensivvårdsavdelningen men de önskade dock ytterligare och mer regelbundna stödåtgärder. 

Abstract [en]

Intensive Care Nurses often care for seriously ill and dying patients, which can create feelings of grief. Based on what previous studies have shown, nurses and intensive care nurses tend to react and manage grief in a similar manner. The purpose of this study was to describe intensive care nurses' experiences and management of their own grief in intensive care units. This was a qualitative study with a total of six unstructured interviews, one of which was a pilot interview. The emergent result showed two categories, "Experiences of grief" and "Dealing with grief" and five sub-categories. The intensive care nurses experienced a particular amount of grief in situations where they could identify with the patient or the situation. Situations’ dealing with children, young people and sudden death also brought much sorrow. In order to deal with their grief the intensive care nurses turned mainly to their colleagues or processed the grief on their own. The intensive care nurses thought that the existing support in the intensive care unit were satisfying. Nevertheless, they wished to get further and more regular support measures.
