Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva hur personer som har drabbats av stroke upplever sin livskvalitet samt vilka faktorer som associeras med livskvalitet. Designen var en beskrivande litteraturstudie och litteratur söktes i databaserna Medline (via PubMed) och Cinahl. Efter urvalet återstod 15 artiklar som inkluderades i studien. Artiklarna granskades och fyra huvudkategorier kunde utrönas: livskvalitet efter stroke, fysiska, psykiska och sociala faktorer som associeras med livskvalitet. Resultatet visade att personer som har drabbats av stroke ofta uppvisar sänkt livskvalitet. Fysiska faktorer av betydelse var försämrade kroppsfunktioner och kognitiv nedsättning. Äldre personer och kvinnor skattade ofta sin livskvalitet lägre jämfört med yngre och män. Den viktigaste psykiska faktorn var depression. En social faktor av betydelse för sänkt livskvalitet var minskat socialt deltagande. Slutsatsen med studien var att kunskap kring hur personer som har drabbats av stroke upplever sin livskvalitet och vilka faktorer som associeras med livskvalitet kan ge vägledning för vilken typ av stöd och rehabilitering som behövs.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to describe how persons who have had a stroke experience their quality of life and which factors are associated with quality of life. The design was a descriptive literature study and literature was sought in the databases Medline (via PubMed) and Cinahl. After the selection a sample of 15 articles was included in the study. The articles were reviewed and four main categories were found: quality of life post stroke, physical, psychological or social factors associated with quality of life. The result showed that persons who had a stroke often show decreased quality of life. Physical factors of importance were impaired body functions and decreased cognitive function. Older persons and women often measured their quality of life as lower compared to younger persons and men. The most important psychological factor was depression. A social factor of importance related to reduced quality of life was decreased social participation. The conclusion of the study was that knowledge about how persons who had a stroke experience their quality of life and which factors are associated with quality of life could give guidance for what kind of support and rehabilitation is needed.
