Stress of conscience among nurses : Causes and experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

När individen upplever stress i samband med att inte kunna agera i enlighet med sitt samvete uppstår samvetsstress. Denna stress är vanligt förekommande hos sjuksköterskor. Om stressen blir långvarig kan den övergå till kronisk stress, vilket kan ge allvarliga konsekvenser. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva när och hur sjuksköterskan upplever samvetsstress. Metoden var litteraturstudie som innefattade tio kvalitativa studier samt en kvantitativ studie som svarade på studiens syfte. Studierna söktes i databaserna CINAHL och MEDLINE. Resultatet redovisades i två teman med subteman. Tema 1 var orsak till samvetsstress med subteman brist på stöd, dåligt samarbete och tidsbrist. Tema 2 var beskrivning av upplevelsen av samvetsstress med subteman frustration, maktlöshet och otillräckligt och ensamhet. Slutsats Om sjuksköterskans förmåga att ge god omvårdnad äventyras kan patientsäkerheten riskeras. Genom att sjuksköterskan kräver mer stöd, respekt samt hjälp kan upplevelsen av samvetsstress minska. Klinisk betydelse Litteraturstudiens resultat kan leda till en ökad förståelse av vad som orsakar samvetsstress.
