Abstract
Objective

To explore the emotions experienced by the nurses of a Home Hospitalization Unitas a result of their work role.

Method

A qualitative exploratory study was carried out with a phenomenology approach toexplore people’s experiences and inner-life experiences. The participants were 9 nurses workingin the home hospitalization unit. An analysis of qualitative content was undertaken. Units ofmeaning were grouped into 13 codes that, in turn, were classified into 4 categories, emotionaldimension, beneficial and distressing aspects, daily working life and personal life.

Results

Nursing professionals working in palliative care suffer continuous exposure to traumaticsituations, although they also report feeling satisfactory emotions that compensate for momentsof distress. Having resources such as training in self-care and emotional regulation, as well associal support seems to be key to providing quality care and avoiding the onset of compassionfatigue.

Conclusions

Maintaining psychosocial well-being in the workplace is crucial for palliative care nurses to be able to undertake their work in the best possible way.

Resumen
Objetivo

Explorar las emociones experimentadas por las enfermeras de una Unidad de Hospitalización a Domicilio como resultado de su rol laboral.

Método

Estudio exploratorio cualitativo, con enfoque desde la fenomenología para explorar experiencias y vivencias de la vida interior de las personas. Las participantes fueron nueve enfermeras que desempeñaban su labor en la unidad de hospitalización a domicilio. Se realizó un análisis de contenido cualitativo. Las unidades de significado fueron agrupadas en 13 códigos que, a su vez, se clasificaron en 4 categorías llamadas dimensión emocional, aspectos beneficiosos y angustiantes, vida laboral diaria y vida personal.

Resultados

Las enfermeras que trabajan en cuidados paliativos sufren una exposición continua a situaciones traumáticas, aunque también refieren sentir emociones satisfactorias que compensan los momentos de angustia. Poseer recursos como formación en autocuidado y regulación emocional, así como contar con apoyo social parece ser clave para prestar una atención de calidad y evitar la aparición de la fatiga por compasión.

Conclusiones

Mantener el bienestar psicosocial en el lugar de trabajo resulta crucial para que los profesionales sanitarios dedicados a los cuidados paliativos puedan desempeñar su labor de la mejor forma posible.
