Abstract (Summary)
Palliative care is practices in all care institutions in Sweden. With this study we wanted to elucidate factories that influence’s the nurse’s assessment and value of pain to patients who are dying. We wonted to illuminate how important it is that the nurse does a correct assessment of pain because all patients deserve to die with out pain. The aim of the study was to describe factories that influence nurse’s assessment and value of the pain of patients in the palliative care. The method that’s been used was a qualitative literature study. The result showed that the nurse experiences assessment of pain as complicated because of many different reasons, for instance lack of knowledge and difficulties to communicate with certain patients groups. The result also showed that they lacked sufficient knowledge and experience in order to do assessment of pain in a correct way and they were missing of good sense of confidence in their professionals.
