Abstract [en]

Co-creating possibilities for patients in palliative care to reach vital goals – a multiple case study of home-care nursing encountersThe patient’s home is a common setting for palliative care. This means that we need to understand current palliative care philosophyand how its goals can be realized in home-care nursing encounters (HCNEs) between the nurse, patient and patient’srelatives. The existing research on this topic describes both a negative and a positive perspective. There has, however, been areliance on interview and descriptive methods in this context. The aim of this study was to explore planned HCNEs in palliativecare. The design was a multiple case study based on observations. The analysis includes a descriptive and an explanation buildingphase. The results show that planned palliative HCNEs can be described as a process of co-creating possibilities for thepatient to reach vital goals through shared knowledge in a warm and caring atmosphere, based on good caring relations. However,in some HCNEs, co-creation did not occur: Wishes and needs were discouraged or made impossible and vital goals werenot reached for the patients or their relatives. Further research is needed to understand why. The co-creative process presentedin this article can be seen as a concretization of the palliative care ideal of working with a person-centered approach.
