Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Regionalt cancercenter (RCC) har i samarbete med Sveriges kommuner och landsting (SKL) beslutat att varje patient med en cancerdiagnos ska bli tilldelad en kontaktsjuksköterska.

Syfte: Att undersöka hur väl implementeringen av kontaktsjuksköterskan har fungerat inom den onkologiska vården på Akademiska sjukhuset i Uppsala samt om de kontaktsjuksköterskor som finns arbetar i enlighet med SKL:s definition.

Metod: Kvalitativ metod med semi-strukturerade intervjuer av åtta patienter med olika cancerdiagnos.

Huvudresultat: Fem av de åtta deltagarna blev tilldelade en kontaktsjuksköterska eller motsvarande när de fick sin diagnos, antingen i direkt samband med diagnosen eller i ett senare skede. Resultaten tyder på att de patienter som ingår i någon slags forskningsstudie upplever sig ha en kontaktsjuksköterska som underlättar för dem och även deras behandling. Patienter som inte ingår i läkemedelsstudier upplever inte att kontaktsjuksköterskan har arbetat enligt SKL:s definition.

Slutsats: Forskningssjuksköterskor är den personalkategori som arbetar närmast definitionen av kontaktsjuksköterska. Brister gällande sjukvårdens tillgänglighet, förmåga att ge fullgod information samt att erbjuda anhöriga stöd har uppmärksammats. Ytterligare forskning måste utföras för att resultaten ska kunna bekräftas.  

Abstract [en]

Introduction:  The Regional Cancer Centre in Sweden (RCC), in collaboration with Local Authorities and Regions (SKL) has decided that every patient with a diagnosis of cancer should be assigned a contact nurse/patient navigator.

Objective: To examine how well the implementation of this has been within the oncology care at the University Hospital in Uppsala and whether the patient navigators are working according to the definition decided by SKL.

Methods: Qualitative methodology with semi-structured interviews of eight patients with different types of cancer.

Main results: Five of the eight participants were assigned a patient navigator or equivalent at the time of their diagnoses or at a later stage. The result suggests that patients included in this study perceive that they have been provided with a patient navigator who facilitates their treatment. Patients assigned with a patient navigator but not included in drug trials do not feel that the patient navigators met the requirements asked by SKL.

Conclusion: Research Nurses are the personnel who work most closely with SKLs definition of the patient navigator. Shortcomings regarding health care availability, the ability to provide adequate information and to offer family support have been noted. Further research must be carried out for the results to be confirmed.
