Nurses’ encounter with people suffering from obesity : A general literature study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Obesitas är en vanlig sjukdom som leder till allvarliga konsekvenser, både för personen och samhället. Sjukdomen kan drabba vem som helst men överrepresenteras i vissa grupper. Patienter som lider av obesitas upplever ofta bemötandet inom vården som hindrande och stigmatiserande, med brister i den personcentrerade vården. Sjuksköterskans ansvarsområde består av omvårdnad men personcentrerad vård, evidensbaserad vård, förbättringskunskap, säker vård, samverkan i team och informatik som kärnkompetenser. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att möta och stödja patienter som lider av obesitas. Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie med kvalitativ ansats genomfördes med Polit och Becks niostegsmodell. Denna studie använde sig utav en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av Graneheim och Lundman. Resultat: Två kategorier hittades: ett behov av fler resurser och en utmanande arbetssituation. Utifrån dessa kategorier utvecklades även fyra subkategorier: kunskapens betydelse, ett stressfullt möte, att ha blandade känslor samt en känsla av rädsla och oro. Slutsats: Att möta individer som lider av obesitas kräver ökade resurser och kunskap. Vidare forskning behövs på organisatorisknivå med fokus på hälso- och sjukvårdens ansvar och hantering av patienter med obesitas inom olika vårdinrättningar.

Abstract [en]

Background: Obesity is a common disease that leads to serious consequences, both for the individual and society. The disease can affect anyone but is overrepresented in certain groups. Patients suffering from obesity often experience the treatment in health care as hindering and stigmatizing, with shortcomings in one of the nursing areas of responsibility, person-centered care. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe nurses' experiences of meeting and supporting patients suffering from obesity. Method: A general literature review with a qualitative approach was conducted with Polit and Beck's nine-step model and a qualitative content analysis by Graneheim and Lundman. Results: Two categories were found: a need for more resources and a challenging work situation. Based on these categories, four subcategories were also developed: The importance of knowledge, a stressful meeting, having mixed feelings and a feeling of fear and anxiety. Conclusion: Meeting individuals suffering from obesity requires increased resources and knowledge. Further research is needed at the organizational level with a focus on the responsibility of health care and the management of patients with obesity in different health care facilities.
