Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa intervjustudie var att undersöka arbetssituationen för svenska manligasjuksköterskor, med fokus på beröring och strategier vid intimt omvårdnadsarbete. Nio manligasjuksköterskor med anställning på Akademiska sjukhuset i Uppsala intervjuades.Informanterna uppgav att de alla kände sig väl mottagna av sina kvinnliga kollegor och att de kändesig bekväma på sina arbetsplatser. Faktumet att de var män i en kvinnodominerad yrkesgrupp varinget som spelade in i någon större utsträckning, varken beteendemässigt eller i hur de blevbemötta. Informanterna såg alla arbetsuppgifter som en naturlig del av yrkesrollen, en roll de allakände sig trygga i. Att förklara syftet med intima procedurer samt hur de skulle genomföras och att ipotentiellt problematiska fall fråga om patienten hellre ville ha en kvinnlig sjuksköterska var deenskilt vanligaste strategierna. Lyhördhet för patientens önskemål och sinnesstämning sågs somviktigt.Denna studie ger en mycket positiv bild av sjuksköterskeyrket som fördomsfritt och jämställt, därde olikheter som finns mellan könen är en tillgång snarare än en belastning. Att ha sjuksköterskorav båda könen sågs av informanterna som något som stärkte patienternas autonomi ochvälbefinnande. Samtidigt som sjuksköterskans kön i de allra flesta fall är egalt och skillnaderna avringa betydelse för yrkesutövningen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative interview study was to examine the work situation of today for theswedish male nurses, with a focus on touch and strategies for intimate care work. Nine male nurseson staff at a University Hospital in Uppsala, were interviewed.The informants said they all felt well recieved among their female colleagues and that they feltcomfortable in their workplaces. The fact that they were men in a female-dominated profession didnot affect them in any significant way, either behaviorally or in how they were treated. Theinformants saw all duties as a natural part of the role, a role they all felt safe in. To explain thepurpose of intimate procedures and how they were implemented and to, in potentially problematiccases, ask if the patient would rather have a female nurse were the single most common strategies.Sensitivity to patient preference and mood were also seen as important.This study provides a very positive image of nursing as open-minded and equally, where thedifferences between the sexes is an asset rather than a burden. Having nurses of both sexes wasconsidered by the informants as something that strengthened the patient's autonomy and wellbeing.However, the nurse's sex is not an issue in most cases, and the differences are of minor importancefor professional practice.
