1. Christiansen, Victoria. Vuxna anhörigas beskrivning av livet efter deras närståendes stroke : en litteraturstudie.

Degree: Health and Caring Sciences, 2011, University of Gävle

Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa vuxna anhörigas upplevelser av livet efter att en närstående drabbats av stroke och fått bestående funktionshinder. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie, 16 vetenskapliga artiklar granskades och sammanställdes sedan utifrån perspektiven fysiskt, psykiskt och socialt. Huvudresultat: Litteraturstudiens resultat visar att anhöriga till strokedrabbade påverkades ur ett fysiskt, psykiskt och socialt perspektiv. De kände sig utmattade till följd av det ökade ansvaret som stroken förde med sig. Deras liv vändes upp och ner och många var missnöjda med vården och dess bemötande. Anhöriga upplevde brist på information och kände att de saknade kunskap om området. Känslor som oro, frustration, sorg, nedstämdhet och skuldkänslor beskrevs. De anhöriga kände sig tvingade att hålla tillbaka sina känslor och de uppgav att stöd från familj, vänner och personal var viktigt och gav dem styrka. Kvinnliga anhöriga visade sig vara mer utsatta än manliga. Anhöriga kände tacksamhet för att den strokedrabbade överlevt. De upplevde brist på egentid, stagnerade framtidsplaner och många kände sig socialt isolerade. De förändrade rollerna som stroken innebar upplevdes som påfrestande. Slutsats: Kunskap om hur anhöriga upplever livet efter en närståendes stroke kan ge vägledning i sjuksköterskans arbete med att stödja och informera anhöriga.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to illuminate the adult relatives experiences of life after a close person suffered a stroke and become permanently disabled. Method: The study was conducted as a literature review, 16 research articles were examined and then compiled from a physically, mentally and socially perspective. Main results: The literature study shows that relatives of stroke survivors were affected from a physical, mental and social perspective. They felt fatigued as a result of the increased responsibility that the stroke resulted in. Their lives were turned upside down and many were dissatisfied with the care and treatment. Family members felt a lack of information and felt they lacked knowledge of the area. Feelings of anxiety, frustration, grief, depression and guilt were described. The relatives felt compelled to hold back their emotions and they indicated that support from family, friends and staff was important and gave them strength. Female relatives were found to be more vulnerable than male relatives. Relatives felt gratitude for the survival of the stroke victim. They experienced lack of own time, stagnated plans of the future and experienced being socially isolated. The changed roles was experienced as stressful. Conclusion: Knowledge about how family members experience life after a stroke of a close one, may give guidance to the nurse in the work of supporting and informing relatives.

2. Sandström, Oxana. NÄR LIVET TAR EN NY VÄNDNING : En litteraturstudie om upplevelser efter en stroke.

Degree: Health and Welfare, 2017, Mälardalen University

Bakgrund: Stroke är en av de största folksjukdomarna i Sverige och årligen drabbas cirka 30 000 personer av stroke. Sjukdomen är en livshotande händelse och kan medföra funktionsnedsättningar i olika grad som påverkar på personers liv. Det kan även påverka på de anhörigas liv som tar hand om sin familjemedlem som har insjuknat. Syfte: Att beskriva patienters upplevelser av att leva med funktionsnedsättningar det första året efter en stroke. Metod: En systematisk litteraturstudie av vårdvetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats enligt Evans beskrivande syntes. Resultat: Upplevelser som framkom i resultatet delades in i två teman: förlorad kontroll över kroppen och återfå kontroll över livet. Utifrån dessa teman framkom sex underteman: att bli instängd, att bli orkeslös, att leva med förlorad identitet, att leva med förändrad sinnesstämning, att anpassa sig till funktionsnedsättningar och att uppleva hopp. Slutsats: Att leva med funktionsnedsättningar efter en stroke påverkar på patienters kropp, själ och ande samt leder det till ett nytt och annorlunda liv. Sjuksköterskan bör uppmärksamma upplevelser som medförs av funktionsnedsättningar och anpassa vården efter detta. Att kunna lyssna, ge stöd och använda sin kunskap vid bemötande av patienter efter en stroke medför att kvalitén på omvårdnaden kan förbättras.   

Background: Stroke is one of the most common widespread diseases in Sweden and approximately 30 000 people suffers each year. The disease is a life-threatening experience and can lead to disabilities and affect the patient’s lifestyle. It can also affect the lives of the relatives who take care of their family member who has been diagnosed with a stroke. Aim: To describe patient’s experiences of living with the disabilities the first year after a stroke. Method: A systematic literature study of nursing research articles with qualitative approach according to Evans descriptive synthesis. Results: Experiences, which were identified in the result, were divided into two themes: Lost control of the body and regain control of their life. Based on the themes six sub-themes appeared: To be trapped, to be decrepit, to live with lost identity, to live with altered mood, to adapt to the disabilities and to experience hope. Conclusion: Living with disabilities after a stroke affect a patient’s body, mind and spirit, and lead to a new and different life. Nurses should pay attention to victim’s experiences of the disabilities and adapt the nursing accordingly. Being able to listen, provide support and use their knowledge in the treatment of patients after a stroke can improve the quality of healthcare.

3. McManus, Sasha Demos. The top 10 research priorities relating to long-term aphasia, following stroke.

Degree: 2015, University of Limerick

non-peer-reviewed

Background: Studies with people with aphasia are warranted as this group is often excluded from research. Stakeholder derived research priorities are seen as an opportunity to identify what matters most to people with aphasia, their families and health professionals, and are desirable in order to inform research funding bodies. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to report on the top 10 research priorities related to long term aphasia from the perspective of people with aphasia (PWA), their carers and speech and language therapists (SLT). Methods: In this study we adopted the James Lind Alliance methodology, established to bring patients, carers and clinicians together in a ‘priority setting partnerships (PSP)’ to identify and prioritize unanswered research questions. Results: 46 participants (21 PWA, 18 SLTs and 7 carers) were included in the study. A top 10 research priority list was derived for each. Research priorities were grouped into themes (‘General management strategies’, ‘Aphasia & Cognition’, ‘Aphasia, carers & family, ‘Specific treatments’, ‘Aphasia & depression’ and ‘Communicating with PWA’) to facilitate identification of similarities and differences between groups. An overall top 10 was also established. The overall top 4 research priorities related to ‘General management strategies’ theme. The next 6 included 3 relating to ‘Communication with PWA’, 1 pertained to ‘Aphasia & Cognition’, 1 to ‘Aphasia & Carers’ and 1 to ‘Specific treatments’ theme. Conclusions: The top 10 research priorities related to aphasia have been identified using a rigorous and person centered method. The top 10 should be used to provide guidance for researchers and funding bodies.
