Abstract [en]

Elderly patients experiences of palliative care – a rewire

The purpose of this paper was to study elderly patient’s experience of palliative care with present knowledge as starting point. The questions were; what criteria do the elderly, dying person think is most important to fulfill in palliative care? and how satisfied is the elderly, dying person with the palliative care that are giving to him/her? The information were collected by a data based search trough science magazines and technical literature. Four relevant studies were found; Costello (2001), Heyland (2005), Wilson (1999) and Formiga (2004). Results in this studies show that the communication between patients, physicians and nurses need to improve. The elderly patients demands better, straighter and clearer information from the nurses and physicians, especially about their condition. The elderly demands more emotional and spiritual support from the health care and people with chronic diseases like COPD and CHF seems to bee less satisfied with palliative care then those with cancer. The reason for this can bee that, this group of patients is less likely to not being offered palliative care at all, much because it is harder for the physicians to set a proper medical prognosis.
