Meeting relatives after a suicide attempt : experiences of intensive care nurses (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att bemöta anhöriga till patienter ingår i intensivvårdssjuksköterskans arbete. Dessa möten kan ibland upplevas som både krävande och känslomässigt svåra. Anhöriga till patienter som gjort suicidförsök kan reagera på olika sätt och dessutom vara i behov av extra stöd. Syftet med denna studie var att belysa ett antal intensivvårdssjuksköterskors upplevelser vid bemötande av anhöriga till patienter som vårdats efter ett suicidförsök. Denna pilotstudie har en kvalitativ ansats. Fem semistrukturerade intervjuer med intensivvårdssjuksköterskor utfördes och intervjuerna analyserades utifrån en manifest innehållsanalys. I resultatet framkom tre huvudkategorier; förväntningar, svårigheter samt erfarenhetens betydelse. Intensivvårdssjuksköterskorna kunde förvänta sig att anhöriga hade olika reaktioner och var i behov av information samt hade en vilja att vara nära patienten. Svårigheter upplevdes i samband med att patienter kom in medvetslösa och ovisshet uppstod om vem som var närmast anhörig och hur mycket information som skulle lämnas ut. Erfarenhetens betydelse upplevdes som viktig för att lättare kunna bemöta dessa anhöriga.

Abstract [en]

Meeting relatives to patients is part of the work of intensive care nurses. These meetings can be experienced as both demanding and emotionally difficult. Relatives to patients who have attempted suicide can react in different ways and they may also need extra support. The aim of this study was to illuminate the experiences of a number of intensive care nurses in meeting relatives to patients in care after a suicide attempt. This pilot- study has a qualitative approach. Five semi- structured interviews with intensive care nurses were conducted and the interviews were analyzed with a manifest content analysis. The result revealed three main categories: expectations, difficulties and importance of experience. The expectations of the intensive care nurses were mainly that relatives could have various reactions and were in need of information and that they liked to be close to the patient. Difficulties were experienced when the patients arrived unconscious and there was uncertainty over who was next of kin and how much information to provide. Importance of experience was seen as significant in order to better meet the needs of relatives.
