Abstract [sv]

All vårdpersonal och då också sjuksköterskan som omvårdnadsansvarig kommer förr eller senare i kontakt med människor som har allvarliga och ibland kroniska sjukdomar, t.ex. olika typer av cancer. Dessa patienter har ofta olika kunskapsnivåer om sin sjukdom och också olika behov av information.

Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva om det fanns någon skillnad på informationsbehov mellan unga och gamla, kvinnliga och manliga patienter med cancer och deras sätt att söka efter information. Resultatet bygger på 13 artiklar publicerade mellan 1998-2008 och funna i databaserna Pubmed/Medline och Cinahl. Studiens resultat visade att yngre och då framförallt yngre kvinnor, har ett stort informationsbehov och kompletterar och bekräftar gärna läkarens information med att söka alternativa källor. Den mest frekvent använda källan till information var utan konkurrens Internet. Äldre människor med cancer var oftast helt nöjda med att erhålla den mest väsentliga informationen om sjukdomen, och då alltid från sin läkare. Detaljer och mer ingående information om sjukdomen och eventuella behandlingar var inte av prioritet utan många av de äldre lämnade detta helt till sin läkare. Informationsteknologi kan vara en generationsfråga då många av de äldre cancerpatienterna har vare sig tillgång eller kunskap om datorer och då inte heller Internet

 

 

 

Abstract [en]

All health-care personnel and then also the nurse that is responsible for the nursing care sooner or later comes in contact with people that has serious and sometimes chronic diseases, for example different types of cancer. These patients often have different knowledge levels about their disease and also various needs of information.

The aim of this literature review was to describe if there were any differences of needs for information between young and old, female and male patients with cancer and their ways to search for information. The result is based on 13 articles which were published from 1998 to 2008 and found in the databases Pubmed/Medline and Cinahl. The result of the study showed that younger and then above all younger women had a bigger need for information and complements and confirms gladly the doctor's information with applying for alternative sources. The most frequent used source to find information is without competition the Internet. Older people with cancer were most often entirely pleased with receiving the most important information about their disease from their doctor. Details and more detailed information about the disease and possible treatments was not off priority for many of the older, they left this entire to their doctor. Information technology can be a generation question as so many of the older cancer patients do not have access or knowledge about computers and then not to the Internet neither .
