Abstract [en]

Background: The aim of palliative care is to keep the quality of life by integrating a person-centered care at the end of life. Palliative care and hospice care do not focus only on symptoms and medication. Self-esteem, dignity and support were major components for the patient at the end of life. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe how palliative care is given at a hospice in a developing country. Method: The used method was a qualitative participant observation study. The participants were health care staff at a hospice, they were chosen before the study began. The observation took place three times per week for six weeks. The researcher intertwined volunteering and observing at the same time. The data was analyzed with a qualitative content analysis. Result: The study resulted in six categories: environment, nursing records, nursing care, infection control and meals. Conclusion: The conclusion was that nature and safety had a big impact on the environment. The health care staff worked as a team to fulfill their goals.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Syftet med palliativ vård är att hålla välbefinnandet genom att integrera en personcentrerad vård i livets slutskede. Palliativ vård och hospicevård fokuserar inte bara på symptom och medicinering. Självkänsla, värdighet och stöd är viktiga komponenter för patienten i livets slutskede. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur palliativ vård ges på ett hospice i ett utvecklingsland. Metod: Den använda metoden var en kvalitativ deltagande observationsstudie. Deltagarna var vårdpersonal på ett hospice, de valdes innan studien började. Observationen ägde rum tre gånger per vecka i sex veckor. Forskarna sammanflätade volontärarbetet och observationen samtidigt. Uppgifterna analyserades med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Studien resulterade i sex kategorier: miljö, omvårdnads register, omvårdnad, infektionskontroll och måltider. Slutsats: Slutsatsen var att natur och säkerhet hade stor inverkan på miljön. Vårdpersonalen arbetade som ett team för att uppfylla sina mål.
