Prix de conférence à la mémoire de Helene Hudson 2011 Expériences vécues d’infirmières oeuvrant à titre de soignantes auprès d’un de leurs proches atteint de cancer avancé

Lisa Cicchelli, Deborah McLeod

Abstract


Il existe peu de travaux de recherche qui portent sur les expériences des infirmières prenant soin de membres de leur propre famille diagnostiqués de cancer. Afin de combler cette lacune, une démarche phénoménologique de type herméneutique a été utilisée en vue d’explorer les expériences vécues de cinq infirmières s’occupant de membres de leur famille atteints de cancer avancé. Leurs expériences révélaient un grand nombre de tensions et de conflits alors qu’elles tentaient de concilier les rôles d’infirmière et de soignante naturelle. Du plus profond de leurs expériences se dégageait le sentiment d’être prisonnières d’une toile faite d’attentes contradictoires. Leurs conflits en matière d’attentes provenaient de l’anticipation qu’elles avaient de la trajectoire de la maladie, des attentes de leur propre famille, des attentes des autres professionnels de la santé et des attentes que les infirmières avaient d’ellesmêmes en tant que soignantes naturelles. Les conflits entre leur vie professionnelle et leur vie personnelle leur posaient les plus grands défis. Les répercussions de cette situation de prestation de soins sont décrites.
