Abstract [en]

People with dementia often have difficulties expressing their needs. Untreated pain within this group can be manifested as depression, agitation or loss in appetite. It can be a challenging task for a nurse to estimate, treat and evaluate pain for people with dementia. With good knowledge and an empathic approach, nurses can often recognize and relieve pain amongst these people. Despite this, litterature often suggest that unrecognized and untreated pain is common within this group.

Abstract [sv]

Personer med demens har ofta svårt att uttrycka sina behov. Obehandlad smärta hos personer med demens kan visa sig som exempelvis depression, agitation eller minskad aptit. Att som sjuksköterska kunna bedöma, behandla och utvärdera smärta hos personer med demenssjukdom kan vara en utmanande uppgift. Med goda kunskaper och ett empatiskt bemötande kan sjuksköterskan ofta uppmärksamma och lindra smärta hos dessa personer. Trots detta finns det mycket i litteraturen som tyder på ouppmärksammad och underbehandlad smärta hos denna patientgrupp.
