Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva friska syskons upplevelser när deras bror eller syster drabbas av cancer som barn. Metoden var en beskrivande litteraturstudie som baserades på elva stycken vetenskapliga artiklar med kvalitativ ansats. Litteratursökningen utfördes i databaserna Cinahl och Medline (PubMed), därefter analyserades artiklarna och sammanställdes i kategorier. Resultatet visade att de friska syskonen behövde få vara delaktiga i sin sjuka broders eller systers omvårdnad. De upplevde ett behov av information om sjukdomen och stöd från omgivningen samtidigt som de upplevde olika känslor som ilska, oro, avundsjuka etc. när deras bror eller syster drabbades av cancer. De friska syskonen upplevde även att relationen till föräldrarna och den sjuka brodern eller systern påverkades av sjukdomen, därför var det vikigt för dem att inte bli separerade från sin familj. Slutsatsen var att friska syskon hade olika behov av information, stöd och delaktighet när deras bror eller syster drabbades av cancer. Friska syskons upplevelse är ett outforskat område varför det finns behov av ytterligare forskning där fokus ligger på gruppen friska syskonen. Detta skulle bidra till ökad kunskap hos sjuksköterskor vilket i sin tur skulle kunna användas till att guida det friska syskonet till att bemästra den svåra situationen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe the experience of healthy siblings when their brother or sister gets affected by childhood cancer. The method being used was a describing literature study that was based upon 11 scientific articles with a qualitative approach. The literature search was performed in the databases Cinahl and Medline (PubMed). The articles were analyzed and compiled into categories. The result showed that the healthy siblings needed to be part of their ill brother’s or sister’s care. They experienced a need to get information about the illness and support from their family and friends all while they were experiencing different emotions like anger, concern, jealousy etc. when their brother or sister got affected by cancer. The healthy siblings also experienced that the relation towards the parents and the sick brother or sister was affected by the illness which made it very important not to get separated from their family. The conclusion was that healthy siblings had different needs of information, support and participation, when their brother or sister got affected by cancer. Healthy sibling’s experience is an unexplored area why there is a need for additional research where the focus is on the group of healthy siblings. This would contribute to an increased knowledge among nurses which in turn could be used to guide the healthy sibling to overcome the difficult situation.
