Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate the transcultural communication experienced by ten registered nurses (RNs) who all have worked in humanitarian aid projects in a transcultural context. I will use communication parameters based on already existing theories and I will also use parameters defined in the Swedish discrimination law to investigate the RNs experiences of transcultural communication. I have used a semi-structured interview method where I have conducted interviews with all ten informants separately. The interview questions have been constructed by myself and are shaped out of the communication parameters and the parameters defined in the Swedish discrimination law. The Result will show which differences the RNs experienced in the transcultural contexts in which they worked. Also that the RNs experiences are a measure of their identity based in Swedishness and their identity as care-providers through the way that they present their transcultural experiences.
