Abstract [sv]

Depression är en psykisk sjukdom, som karaktiseras av bland annat nedstämdhet och sömnstörningar. Allt fler i Sverige riskerar att under sin livstid drabbas av någon form av depression. Sjuksköterskors attityder gentemot vuxna patienter med depression, har stor betydelse för tillfrisknandet. Syftet var att beskriva sjuksköterskors kunskap och attityd till vuxna personer med depression. Studien har genomförts som en deskriptiv litteraturstudie, där 15 artiklar har granskats av författarna för att inkluderas i studien. Resultatet visade att depression uppfattades olika av sjuksköterskorna som deltog i studierna, då vissa ansåg att det inte var en sjukdom. Några sjuksköterskor ansåg det givande att vårda dessa patienter vilket speglade av sig positivt på attityden. Andra hade uppfattningen att de inte skulle kunna tänka sig att bo i samma grannskap som någon med denna problematik, samt att de var svåra att tala med. Detta tillsammans med kunskapsbrist ledde till negativa attityder. Slutsatsen av denna studie var att den kunskapsbrist som rådde inom detta område, ledde till att adekvat vård av dessa patienter blev begränsat och därför önskas mer forskning och utbildning inom området för att stärka självförtroendet och öka kunskapen hos sjuksköterskan.

Abstract [en]

Depression is a mental illness, which is characterized by including depressed mood and sleep disorders. More and more people in Sweden might sometime in their lifetime be affected by some form of depression. Nurses' attitudes towards adult patients with depression are important for recovery. The aim of this study was to describe nurses' knowledge and attitude to adults with depression. The study was conducted as a descriptive literature review, in which 15 articles were reviewed by the authors to be included in the study. The results showed that depression was perceived differently by the nurses who participated in the studies, when some thought that it was not a disease. Some nurses felt it rewarding to care for these patients as reflected by their positive attitude. Others believed that they could not imagine living in the same neighborhood as someone with this problem, and that these people were difficult to talk to. This, together with lack of knowledge led to negative attitudes. The conclusion of this study was that the skills shortages in this area, leading to adequate care of these patients were limited. Therefore, it requires more research and education in the field of strengthening confidence and increasing knowledge among nurses.
