Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva vilken utbildning, kunskap och attityd sjuksköterskor har inom munvård samt hur sjuksköterskor kan främja god munvård hos patienter i palliativ vård. En beskrivande litteraturstudie användes som metod där artiklar söktes i Cinahl och Pubmed (Medline). Där hittades tolv artiklar som sedan formade denna studie. Resultatet visade att många sjuksköterskor ansåg att de hade fått bristfällig utbildning i munvård under sin grundutbildning. Eftersom kunskapsnivån hos många sjuksköteskor var otillfredsställande har det framkommit att både personal och patienter inom den palliativa vården gynnas genom utbildning. Det fanns många negativa attityder kring munvård bland sjuksköterskor. Munvård prioriterades inte heller tillräckligt inom den palliativa vården enligt sjuksköterskor. Däremot ansåg de att det bör prioriteras bättre. Olika program och framtagna arbetsredskap har visat sig kunna underlätta arbetet för sjuksköterskor. Även patientutbildning har bidragit till att skapa en bättre munstatus. Slutsatsen av studien är att det finns brister i utbildning, kunskap och attityder inom munvård bland sjuksköteskor. För att ändra på detta vill sjuksköterskor ha mer utbildning och träning. På så vis kan bättre förutsättningar skapas för sjuksköterskan att främja god munvård för patienter i den palliativa vården.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this literature study was to describe education, knowledge and attitudes among nurses regarding oral health care and in which way nurses can promote proper mouth care among patients within palliative care. A descriptive design was the method chosen, with articles obtained via Cinahl and Pubmed (Medline). Twelve articles were found that subsequently formed this study. The results showed that many nurses considered having recieved insufficient mouth care training during their education. Since the level of knowledge among many nurses was lacking it has been shown that both staff and patients within palliative care benefit from education. There were many negative attitudes about mouth care among nurses. Moreover, it was not prioritized enough within palliative care according to nurses. However, they felt that it should be. Different programs and developed tools have shown to facilitate nurses' work. Patient education has also contributed to a better mouth status. The conclusion of the study is that there are flaws in education, knowledge and attitudes about mouth care among nurses. To change this nurses want more education and training. Thus better condition can be created for nurses to promote proper mouth care for patients within palliative care.
