Nurses’ and midwives’ experiences of healthcare encounters with endometriosis-affected women : A survey (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Endometrios är en sjukdom där livmoderslemhinnan växer på annan plats än i livmodern. Endometrios kan orsaka stark smärta och ett stort lidande för den drabbade kvinnan. Forskning visar att endometriosdrabbde kvinnor upplever bristande bemötande och en okunskap från sjukvården. Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka sjuksköterskors och barnmorskors upplevelser av vårdmöten med endometriosdrabbade kvinnor. Metod: Kvantitativ metod med kvalitativa inslag och deskriptiv ansats via en empirisk studie. Resultat: De flesta studiedeltagarna upplever brister i sin kunskap om endometrios och önskar mer kunskap för att kunna bemöta och hjälpa endometriosdrabbade kvinnor. Några av studiedeltagarna upplever inte brister i lika stor utsträckning men önskar ändå mer kunskap om den gynekologiska sjukdomen endometrios. Det förekommer faktorer som kan påverka kommunikationen i vårdmöten. Endometriosdrabbade kvinnor upplevs vara svåra att bemöta och hjälpa. Slutsats: Kunskapen och medvetenheten om endometrios behöver fördjupas hos alla sjuksköterskor i studien. Fördjupad kunskap kan medföra att sjuksköterskor känner sig tryggare i vårdmötet vilket kan resultera i en bättre omvårdnad för endometriosdrabbade kvinnor.

Abstract [en]

Background: Endometriosis is a disease in which the uterine mucosa grows elsewhere than in the uterus. Endometriosis can cause severe pain and great suffering for the affected woman. Research shows that endometriosis-afflicted women experience inadequate care and a lack of knowledge from the health care system. Purpose: The purpose was to investigate nurses’ and midwives’ experiences of the healthcare encounters with endometriosis-affected women. Method: Quantitative method with a qualitative elements and a descriptive approach via an empirical study. Results: Most study participants experience shortcomings in their knowledge of endometriosis and want more knowledge to be able to respond to and help endometriosis-affected women. Some of the study participants do not experience deficiencies to the same extent, but still want more knowledge about the gynecological disease endometriosis. There are factors that affect communication in healthcare encounters. Endometriosis-affected women are perceived to be difficult to respond to and help. Conclusion: The knowledge and awareness of endometriosis needs to be deepened in all the nurses in the study. In-depth knowledge can mean that nurses feel more secure in healthcare encounters, which can result in better nursing care for endometriosis-affected women.
