GARCIA SANJUAN, Sofía; LILLO CRESPO, Manuel; SANJUAN QUILES, Ángela  and  RICHART MARTINEZ, Miguel. Crohn's disease, chronic and nurse role: literature review and state of affairs. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.36, pp.323-335. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: to know the experiences of life and perception of social support for people affected by Crohn's disease (CD), and the role played by nurses in the process. Methods: The PubMed search was conducted, CUIDEN, CINAHL, CSIC, SCIELO, Theseus. Also used sensitive search, REDICS (Red qualitative health research) and RUA (Institutional Repository of the University of Alicante). Results: After applying the exclusion criteria, 20 articles were identified by title and summary were considered relevant for further scrutiny (full text). The discrepancies were resolved by consensus between the principal investigator and two researchers of the study. The review was carried out between January 2011 and December 2011. Conclusions: there are few studies that deal with knowing the experience of living with the EC. The recovered little literature that deals with these issues shows the struggles and confrontations that perform those affected. The nurse / or the person is often referred to as sole support to handle coping with the disease. The functions of the nurse / or support of those affected, showing a role can I expand to cover all the needs of people with CD.

Keywords : Chronic illness; experience of living; Crohn' s disease and inflammatory bowel disease; nurse; nursing.
