Nurses` experiences of supporting patients withtype 2 diabetes to selfcare in primary health caresettings : A general literature study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Type 2 diabetes is an increasingly prevalent public health issue characterized by a progressive disease course. It is attributed to various factors, including lifestyle, reduced physical activity, and genetics. Enhanced knowledge among primary care nurses can enable patients to implement lifestyle changes effectively.

Aim: The purpose was to describe nurses’ experiences of supporting patients with type 2 diabetes to selfcare in primary health care settings.

Method: This study employs a general literature review methodology with qualitative approaches, drawing on 10 scientific articles.

Results: The analysis identified two main categories: communication as well as knowledge and motivation. These categories were crucial from the nurse´s side to achieve self-care in the patient. Different experiences emerged from nurse´s side to achieve motivation and communication.

Conclusion: Type 2 diabetes is a growing public health concern. A significant barrier to effective management is the lack of knowledge among both nurses and patients. There is a critical need for competent nurses in primary care to motivate patients towards lifestyle modification and self-care.
