BASTOS, Rodrigo Almeida et al. The experiences of nurses in the dying process: a qualitative meta-synthesis. Revista Portuguesa de Enfermagem de Saúde Mental [online]. 2017, n.17, pp.58-64. ISSN 1647-2160.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19131/rpesm.0184.

CONTEXT: Hospital experiences of nurses face the process of dying have been related to the potentiation of suffering, especially when the professional does not develop coping strategies, interfering with assistance provided. OBJECTIVE: To conduct a meta-synthesis about the hospital experiences of nurse face of death and the dying process. METHOD: meta-synthesis performed through searching the Virtual Health Library, using the descriptors Nursing, Attitude to Death and Hospices and Palliative Care Nursing, written in Portuguese. One hundred and seventy papers were found and twenty-three papers were selected. RESULTS: Most distressful factors arose from the nurse's work with the families of dying patients. Factors that facilitate the process are subjective, related to religiousness, professional resistance and effective communication. Sadness, failure, anxiety, helplessness, guilt, pain and fear are components to be worked. CONCLUSION: The predisposing factors have been reported as sources of motivation and support for the construction of a working process less taxing and more productive.
