AIM:Compiling knowledge of how patients diagnosed with BPD experience their treatment and themeeting with health care professionals. METHOD: Through the databases PsycINFO andPubMed, twelve qualitative articles were selected and summarized in a literature study. Thearticles were analyzed by content and quality and these results were divided into themes andcategories. RESULTS: Patients with BPD experienced ignorance and prejudice from health careprofessionals. This led to insufficient meetings and distrust of the health care system. Patientsfeel that good relationships with health care professionals are the basis to be able to absorb theoffered treatment. CONCLUSION: The nurse may together with other health care professionalscontribute to respectful and trustful relationships to patients with BPD. This can result in a morepositive health care experience and ultimately a better quality of life for these patients.
