Abstract

Objective: This systematic review will evaluate the experience of hope in adult patients with advanced chronic diseases other than cancer, transitioning toward end-of-life. The review will also evaluate the experience of hope in informal caregivers caring for adult patients with advanced chronic diseases other than cancer as they transition toward end-of-life.

Introduction: Hope is an important resource that assists patients and informal caregivers to deal with difficult and complex situations, such as living with advanced chronic disease.

Inclusion criteria: The review will include studies written in English, French, and Portuguese exploring hope. Qualitative studies focusing on adult patients with advanced chronic diseases other than cancer and/or informal caregivers will be considered. Studies with children as patients or parents as caregivers will be excluded.

Methods: The review will search Embase, MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Web of Science, ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, DART-Europe E-theses Portal, and Google Scholar. The search will be conducted without date restrictions. Articles will be assessed against the inclusion criteria by two independent reviewers. Data will be extracted using a standard tool. The extracted findings will be synthesized using the meta-aggregation approach through assembling and categorizing data.

Systematic review registration number: PROSPERO CRD42021266487.
