REGISTERED NURSES EXPERIENCE TO TALK TO PATIENT ABOUT SEXUALITY AND SEXUAL HEALTH : A literaturebased study (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Throughout life, sexuality is a central aspect of being human and to experience a full and healthy. Several diseases and treatments can cause problems related to sexuality and sexual health. Despite this, research has shown that nurses, for various reasons choose not to take up the subject with their patients. Aim: The aim of this literature-based study was to illuminate nurses' experiences of talking with patients about sexuality and sexual health. Method: A literature-based study where both qualitative and quantitative studies, have been used. Results: Four categories were formed: Professional liability and competence, nurse perceptions of patient, organization and work environment and culture and religion. The main results showed that the majority of nurses believe that it is their responsibility to talk about sexuality and sexual health of the patient. The obstacles that were identified could be linked to nurse private beliefs about the patient and their religion and culture, and lack of knowledge, experience and organization and work environment. Conclusions: More research is needed in the area in order to find out the underlying causes of the barriers experienced by nurses.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Under hela livet är sexualitet en central aspekt av att vara mänsklig och för att kunna uppleva en fullständig och god hälsa. Flertalet sjukdomar och behandlingar kan ge upphov till problem relaterade till sexualitet och den sexuella hälsan. Trots detta har forskning visat att sjuksköterskor av olika anledningar väljer att inte ta upp ämnet med sina patienter. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturbaserade studie var att belysa sjuksköterskors uppfattningar om att samtala med patienter om sexualitet och sexuell hälsa. Metod: Litteraturbaserad studie där både kvalitativa och kvantitativa studier har använts. Resultat: Fyra kategorier bildades; Yrkesansvar och kompetens, Sjuksköterskans föreställningar om patienten, Organisation och arbetsmiljö och Kultur och religion. Huvudresultatet visade att majoriteten av sjuksköterskorna anser att det ligger på deras ansvar att samtala om sexualitet och sexuell hälsa med patienten. De hinder som kunde identifieras kunde kopplas till sjuksköterskans privata föreställningar om patienten och dennes religion och kultur, samt brist på kunskap, erfarenhet och organisation och arbetsmiljö. Konklusion: Mer forskning behövs inom området med syfte att ta reda på bakomliggande orsaker till de hinder som upplevs av sjuksköterskorna.
