Needs of young adults with cancer : A netnographic blog study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Varje år drabbas unga vuxna av cancer och behöver professionell omvårdnad. De upplever sig inte få den vård de är i behov av. Alla människor har, enligt motivationsteorin, behov som är ordnade hierarkiskt, och som behöver uppfyllas för att människan ska kunna uppnå självförverkligande.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att identifiera och beskriva upplevda behov hos unga vuxna med cancer.

Metod: Studien använde en kvalitativ nätnografisk design med induktiv ansats. Studien analyserade åtta bloggar skrivna av unga vuxna med cancer.

Resultat: Resultatet visade åtta behov som grupperades i fyra teman. Temana grundades på upplevelser som beskrevs i bloggarna, och var: Information, Meningsfullhet, Känslohantering och Bemötande.

Slutsats: Denna studie identifierade åtta behov som fanns på de fyra nedersta stegen i motivationsteorin. Genom att hjälpa unga vuxna med cancer att uppfylla dessa behov kan hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal ge dem en möjlighet att uppnå självförverkligande för att unga vuxna med cancer ska kunna leva och inte bara överleva.

Klinisk betydelse: Studien kan bidra till ökad förståelse för unga vuxna med cancers behov. Hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal kan, genom att hjälpa unga vuxna med cancer att uppfylla deras behov, ge unga vuxna med cancer möjlighet att uppnå självförverkligande. Studien kan även bidra till en ökad förståelse för upplevelsen av att bli sjuk.

Abstract [en]

Background: Each year young adults are diagnosed with cancer and need professional healthcare. They feel that they don’t get the care they need. All people have, according to Maslow’s theory of human motivation, need that are hierarchically arranged and need to be met in order for the human to reach self-actualization.

Aim: The aim of this study was to identify and describe the perceived needs of young adults with cancer.

Method: This study used a qualitative netnographic design with an inductive approach. Eight blogs written by young adults with cancer were analyzed.

Result: The result presented nine needs, which were arranged into four themes. The themes were based on experiences found in the blogs, and were: Information, Meaningfulness, Emotional management and Treatment.

Conclusion: This study identified eight needs located on the four lower levels of the hierarchy of needs. By helping young adults with cancer to meet their needs healthcare personal may give them an opportunity to achieve self-actualization, so that young adults with cancer may live, and not only survive.

Clinical significance: This study may contribute to an increased understanding of the needs of young adults with cancer. Caring personnel may, by helping young adults with cancer to meet their needs, provide them an opportunity to achieve self-actualization. This study may also contribute to an increased understanding of the experience of becoming ill.
