Abstract [sv]

Den ökande stressen bland hälso-och sjukvårdspersonal uppmärksammas tid efter annan i olika medier. Omstruktureringar och upplevda neddragningar i vården har lett till högre arbetsbelastning, vilket i sin tur påverkat arbetsförhållandena och det psykiska välbefinnandet hos personalen i negativ riktning. Omvårdnaden skall ges i en anda av respekt och förståelse för den enskildes integritet, och den som är i störst behov av omvårdnad skall prioriteras. Syftet var att beskriva förekomstoch upplevelserav samvetsstress bland sjuksköterskor verksamma på kirurgiska vårdavdelningar på ett sjukhus i Sverige, med hjälp av instrumentet Stress of Conscience Questionnaire (SCQ). Studien,där 60 enkäter analyserades (svarsfrekvens 64,5 %),visadeatt sjuksköterskornaofta upplevdesamvetsstress i relation till sitt arbete. De hanninte ge den vård deras patienterbehövde, och de blev så trötta av sitt arbete att de inte orkademed sina närmasteså som de skulle önska. De yttre, strukturella förhållanden som sjuksköterskor har att förhålla sig till är svåra att påverka på kort sikt. SCQ kan vara ett lätthanterligt hjälpmedel för att beskriva och mäta samvetsstress hos vårdpersonal även om vissa frågor är väl allmänt hållna. Deltagarei studien rapporterade att gemensam reflektion över arbetet hjälpte dem att hantera samvetsstress i relation till arbetet.

Abstract [en]

The increased stress among health care personnel receives attention from time to time in various media. Restructuring and perceived reductions in health care have led to higher workload, which in turn affects working conditions and the mental well-being of the staff in a negative direction. Care must be given in a spirit of respect and understanding of the individual's integrity, and those most in need of care should be prioritized. The aim was to describe the prevalence and perceptions of conscience among nurses working on surgical wards in a hospital in Sweden, by using the Stress of Conscience Questionnaire (SCQ). The study, where 60 questionnaires were analyzed (response rate 64.5%), indicated that the nurses often experienced stress of conscience in relation to their work. They often lacked the time to pro-vide the care their patients needed, and they got so tired due to the demands from their work that they could not devote themselves to their family as they would like. The external structural conditions that nurses have to relate to are difficult to influence in the short term. SCQ can be a practical instrument to describe and measure stress of conscience in health care personnel, even if some items are expressed in general terms. Study participants reported that joint reflection on ethical issues at the workplace helped them cope with stress of conscience in relation to their work.
