Abstract [sv]

Barn med cancer måste genomgå många olika ingrepp vilket kan skapa rädsla.

Syfte: Att sammanställa forskning kring hur den ingreppsrelaterade rädslan hos barn med cancer kan förebyggas och lindras utan psykofarmaka.

Metod: En systematisk sökning genomfördes i Cinahl, PubMed och PsychINFO. Påträffade artiklar granskades och analyserades. Åtta kvantitativa studier inkluderades i den systematiska litteraturöversikten.

Resultat: Rädslan i samband med ingrepp minskades genom att ge barnen möjlighet att tänka på något annat och få emotionellt stöd. Föräldrarnas beteende och engagemang visade sig påverka effektiviteten av avledningsmetoder.

Slutsats: Eftersom rädslan i samband med ingrepp minskades vid användning av olika avledningsmetoder bör avledningsmetoder användas mer i klinisk verksamhet. Vidare forskning med större deltagarantal behövs för att resultaten ska bli generaliserbara. Kvalitativa studier som för närvarande saknas skulle kunna ge ytterligare perspektiv i ämnet.

Abstract [en]

Children with cancer must undergo many different procedures which create fear.

Aim: To compile research about how procedure related fear among children with cancer can be prevented and alleviated without psychopharmacological drugs.

Method: A systematic search was implemented in Cinahl, PubMed and PsychINFO. The articles that were found were reviewed and analyzed. Eight quantitative studies were included in the systematic review.

Results: The procedure related fear was alleviated by giving the children the opportunity to think about something else and by receiving emotional support. The parents’ behavior and engagement influenced the effectiveness of the interventions.

Conclusions: The procedure related fear decreased while using different interventions, therefore should these interventions be used more frequently in clinical practice. Further research with a larger number of participants is required to make the results generalizable. Qualitative studies that presently are missing could give further perspective in the subject area.
