    Abstrakt

    Based on the research method grounded theory and semistructured patient interviews at home following hospitalization, the aim was to provide information on issues relating to the identification and alleviation of patients physical and emotional problems, understood as continuity in palliative care. The interviews were based on selected problems that patients found significant. The results are distilled into the core category disheartening interactions and four categories: falling outside the professional framework, not being seen as a person, unidentified/unmet need for guidance and involvement, and patient strategy-minimizing conflict. The categories are significant in generating and maintaining continuity in basic palliative care.
