Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: En transperson är en person som inte identifierar sig med sitt juridiska kön utan mer som det motsatta könet, som både man och kvinna eller inget kön alls. Processen att genomgå en könsbekräftande behandling är såväl social som medicinsk och juridisk. Sjuksköterskan bör sträva efter att behandla samtliga patienter på ett jämlikt sätt.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva sjuksköterskans erfarenheter av att möta transpersoner samt att genomföra en metodologisk granskning av de inkluderade artiklarna.

Metod: Detta är en litteraturstudie med beskrivande design, vars resultat har sin grund i åtta kvalitativa och en kvantitativ artikel. Dessa hämtades från databaserna Cinahl och Medline via PubMed. I granskningen av artiklarna framkom två teman och fem underrubriker. Den metodologiska aspekten är undersökningsgrupp.

Huvudresultat: Sjuksköterskorna hade bristande kunskaper om transpersoner och därför skapades osäkerhet att bemöta och vårda dessa. Flertalet sjuksköterskor kände rädsla att diskriminera trots att intentionen var att möta dessa personer med respekt och värdighet. Antalet sjuksköterskor som deltog i studierna i de inkuderade artiklarna var 400. Studierna var utförda i USA, Kanada och Australien.

Slutsats: Otillräcklig kunskap och rädsla för att göra fel påverkar sjuksköterskan i vårdandet av transpersoner. Mer forskning behövs för att öka förståelsen hos vårdpersonal för att ge bättre förutsättningar till jämlik vård av transpersoner samt för att ge bättre stöd till de som genomgår könsbekräftande behandling.

Abstract [en]

Background: A transgender person is a person who does not identify themselves as the gender assigned at birth but more as the opposite gender, as both man and woman or as neither of them. The process undergoing sex reassignment is social as well as medical and legal. The nurse should strive to treat all patients equally.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe nurses experience in meeting transgender persons and to conduct a methodological review of the included articles.

Method: This is a literature review with a descriptive design in which the result is based on eight qualitative and one quantitative article. These were collected from the databases Cinahl and Medline through PubMed. In the research of the articles there emerged two themes with five subheadings. The methodological aspect is study group.

Results: The nurses expressed low knowledge about transgender people and therefore was uncertain how to meet and nurse them. Most nurses felt fear of discriminating despite the intention to treat these people with respect and dignity. The number of nurses who participated in the studies of the included articles was 400. The studies were performed in the United States, Canada and Australia.

Conclusion: Inadequate knowledge and fear of making mistakes affect the nurse in the care of transgender persons. More research is needed to increase understanding for all health care professional and to provide better conditions for equal treatment of transgender persons and to provide better support for those undergoing gender sex reassignment treatment.
