Abstract [en]

Background: As an anesthesia nurse, you are responsible for the perioperative care, which includes informing the patient about the coming anesthesia. This can be difficult if there is a language barrier, a lack of a common language to communicate in. Aim: The aim of the study is to describe the anesthesia nurse's experience of language barriers in the perioperative care. Method: The study was conducted in the form of a qualitative interview study. Eleven semi-structured interviews were conducted with anesthesia nurses, which were recorded and then transcribed. Results: Three categories emerged, they were: Creating opportunities for communication, Barriers to communication and Good planning as a prerequisite. Six subcategories emerged, these were: Using an interpreter and communication aids, Facilitating with body language, Not having time, Not being able to understand each other, Having preparation as a foundation and Not being able to do a good job. Conclusion: Language barriers are perceived as common in perioperative care, but there are plenty of tools available to overcome these for exampel interpreters. Body language was considered by the anesthesia nurses to be an effective way of communicating. In order to provide good anesthesiological care, time was considered to be of great importance.
