Abstract [en]

The object with the study of this literature was to describe differente programs of care and patients and relatives experience and opinion about the caring for patients with Anorexia Nervosa. The method the author used was a descriptive literature study based on imperial studies. The studies were based on 15 scientific articles within the chosen field. The results shows that these patients hade special needs to be seen and heard as individuals, involved in their own treatment, and have good contact with the caring staff. The study also shows which methods were mostly appreciated involving nurses, patients and relatives. Results show the patients appreciating the individual therapy and an empathetic caring staff. Parents though thought that family therapy was the best treatment. Here they felt they could show their feelings and at the same time get help and advice in handling different situations. The result also shows problem areas such as framing oneself from the world or patients starting a competition of weight loss among the group members. The study also shows the difference in the nurses views of the different situation. Most nurses found it difficult to treat Anorexia Nervosa or to understand the illness, didn’t feel they had enough knowledge of the psychological health. It also shows that more studies and knowledge is needed in regards to forms and ways of treatment and the different causes of the illness.
