Sjuksköterskans åtgärder för att förbättra hälsan för män med prostatat cancer som genomgår strålbehandling : en systematisk litteraturöversikt (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate what nurses do to improve the health of men who are receiving radiotherapy treatment due to prostata cancer. The method was a literature review using a systematic approach. The Cochrane Library, Medline and CINAHL databaseswere used in a search that covered the period from January 1994 to April 2006. The screening of 200 abstracts resulted in 14 articles corresponding to the research question,which were assessed according to scientific quality. Two independent reviewers performed the screening and quality assessment process using specific protocols. Two themes emerged: nurse-led care related to radiotherapy treatment and patients´experiences of radiotherapy treatment. The result show that there is strong scientific support for nurse-led follow-up care aimed at assisting patients by means of providing information on how to manage side effects (evidence grade A). In addition, there is moderate scientific support for the need to ensure that this information is structured, objective and concrete and that it can be provided by means of audiotapes or over the phone (evidence grade B) as well as weak scientific support for reporting patients´experiences of radiotherapy treatment (evidence grade C).

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur sjuksköterskor kan förbättra hälsan för män med prostatacancer som genomgår strålbehandling. Metoden som användes var en systematisk litteraturgenomgång. Databaserna Cochrane Library, Medline och CINAHL genomsöktes för perioden januari 1994 till april 2006. Av 200 identifierade sammanfattningar valdes 14 fulltextdokument. Dessa granskades med hjälp av protokoll och den vetenskapliga kvaliteten bedömdes. Resultatet formulerades i två tema: sjuksköterske åtgärder och patientupplevelser. Resultatet visar att det finns starka evidens för sjuksköterskeledd uppföljning med syfte att ge patienten information om metoder att klara av bieffekter av behandlingen. Det finns även måttlig evidens för att informationen ska vara strukturerad, objektiv och konkret samt att den kan förmedlas via ljudband eller med hjälp av telefone. Det finns svaga evidens för att rapportera specifika patientupplevelser av behandlingen. Nyckelord: sjuksköterskeinterventioner, sjuksköterskeledd uppföljning, prostatcancer, strålbehandling
