A literature study on the meaning of activities for experienced health among elderly immigrants : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: En litteraturstudie om aktiviteters betydelse för upplevd hälsa bland äldre immigranter.

Metod: Datainsamlingen genomfördes genom en systematisk litteratursökning i databaserna Cinahl, PubMed, Psycinfo och Medline. Inklusionskriterierna och granskningen av artiklarna resulterade i att åtta artiklar med kvantitativ ansats slutligen inkluderades.   

Resultat: Ur sammanställningen av litteraturstudien framkom fyra kategorier. Dessa fyra kategorier var: Ålderns betydelse för upplevd aktivitet och hälsa i samband med migration, det sociala stödets betydelse för utförandet av aktiviteter och upplevelsen av hälsa, ackulturationens betydelse för aktivitetsutförandet och upplevelse av god hälsa samt arbetet och utbildningsgradens betydelse för aktivitet och hälsa.

Sammanfattning: Resultatet indikerar att äldre immigranters hälsa är ett område som arbetsterapeuter bör uppmärksamma. Det finns behov av forskning som belyser hur arbetsterapeuter i det professionella utövandet av yrket kan erbjuda intervention till denna grupp.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: A literature study on the meaning of activities for experienced health among elderly immigrants.

Method: Data collection was carried out through a systematic literature search in the databases Cinahl, PubMed, Psycinfo and Medline. The inclusion criteria and the review of the articles resulted in eight articles with quantitative assumptions finally being included.

Results: From the compilation of the literature study four categories were identified. These four categories were: The importance of age for perceived activity and health in connection with migration, the importance of social support for the conduct of activities and the experience of health, the importance of acculturation for the activity and the experience of good health, and the work and the importance of education for activity and health.

Summary: The outcome indicates that the health of older immigrants is an area that occupational therapists should pay attention to. There is a need for research that illustrates how occupational therapists can offer intervention to this group.
