Nursing interventions that can affect BPSD in persons with Alzheimer´s disease : A literature review about Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia in persons with  Alzheimer´s disease (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Beteendemässiga och psykiska symptom (BPSD) är vanligt förekommande hos personer med Alzheimers sjukdom. Det påverkar den enskilde, närstående och vårdgivare negativt. Läkemedelsbehandling ska inte ses som ett förstahandsalternativ utan fokus ska istället ligga på omvårdnadsinterventioner. Syftet var att beskriva omvårdnadsinterventioner som kan lindra beteendemässiga och psykiska symptom hos personer med Alzheimers sjukdom. Metoden var litteraturstudie där tio artiklar inkluderades efter kritisk granskning. Artiklarnas innehåll analyserades och sex kategorier med omvårdnadsinterventioner bildades: musikterapi, fysisk aktivitet, ljusterapi, kognitiv rehabilitering, terapeutiska samtal samt djurterapi. Resultatet visade att det fanns omvårdnadsinterventioner som påverkade BPSD för stunden men inget som varade över tid. Slutsats: Studien visar att det finns begränsat med forskning där omvårdnadsinterventioner ger god effekt på BPSD hos personer med Alzheimers sjukdom.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) are common in people with Alzheimer’s disease. This affects the individual, family members and caregivers adversely. Drug treatment should not be seen as a first choice, but the focus should instead be on nursing interventions. The aim was to describe nursing interventions that can alleviate behavioral and psychological symptoms in people with Alzheimer's disease. The method was a literature review in which ten articles after critical review were included. The contents of the articles were analyzed and six categories of nursing interventions were formed: music therapy, physical activity, light therapy, cognitive rehabilitation, therapeutic conversation and animal assisted activity. The results showed that there were nursing interventions that affected BPSD for the moment but nothing that lasted over time. Conclusion: The study shows that there is limited research in which nursing interventions gives good effect on BPSD in people with Alzheimer's disease.
