Nurses’ experiences of encounters with patients from different cultures : A literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Sweden is one of many countries which have a long history of immigration during the past decades. Each yearSweden receives numerous immigrants from different parts of the world, which has madeSweden to a multi-culture country.

Aim: The aim was to describe nurses’ experiences of encounters with patients from different cultures.

Method: A literature-based study based on qualitative research, nine scientific articles were performed.

Result: The analysis of the data resulted in four themes such as; insufficient communication, family members as a link to the patient, unfamiliar situation, and attentive to the patients’ vulnerability with seven subthemes.

Conclusion: For a well functioning encounter between nurse and patient from different cultures, a prerequisite is that the nurses establish a relationship based on good communication with the patient and relatives. This can prevent inequality, suffering based on lack of nursing, violation and misunderstandings.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund:  Sverige  är  ett  av  de  länder  som  har  en  lång  historia  av  invandring  de  senaste decennierna.  Varje  år  tar  Sverige  emot  ett  stort  antal  personer  med  utländsk  bakgrund  och flyktingar från olika delar av världen. Detta har gjort Sverige till ett mångkulturellt land.  Syfte: Syftet var att beskriva sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av möten med patienter från olika kulturer.  Metod:  En  litteraturbaserad  studie  med  grund  i  kvalitativ  forskning  baserad  på  nio vetenskapliga artiklar genomfördes.  Resultat:   Analysen   av   datamaterialet   resulterade   i   fyra   teman   såsom;   bristfällig kommunikation,  anhöriga  som  länk  till  patienten,  ovan  situation  samt  uppmärksam  på patientens utsatthet med sju underteman.  Konklusion: För ett välfungerande möte mellan sjuksköterska och patient från olika kulturer, förutsätts  att  sjuksköterskan  kan  etablera  en  relation  grundad  på  god  kommunikation  med patient  och  dennes  anhöriga. Detta  kan  förebygga  ojämlikhet,  vårdlidande,  kränkning  och missförstånd.
