Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Röda Korsets Högskola

Sammanfattning: Background: Prehospital care is performed by the health care staff outside of hospital settings. In prehospital care, patient situations can be life-threatening, acute or non-urgent with limited time for assessments of the patient. Patients in prehospital care may be more vulnerable than in other care situations, as their private lives are more exposed. To achieve an empathic encounter with the patient it is important to maintain the professionalism during theinteraction with a patient. This contributes to a more equal care. Aim: The purpose was to describe nurses' experience of emotional processing after difficult encounters in prehospital care. Method: This literature study used the databases CINAHL and PubMed to retrieve relevant articles. A thematic analysis was performed of 10 original articles which corresponded to thepurpose of the study. Result: The two main themes identified were the significance of the environment and the importance of collaboration. Further, four sub-themes were identified: emotional impact, emotional processing, communication, and cooperation. Conclusion: The emotional impact on nurses that arises during the prehospital work shift can be more easily processed if the opportunity for good communication, feedback and empathy is conveyed or met.
