Mistrust, struggle and sisterhood : A study from a feminist perspective on endometriosis patients' encounter with healthcare services (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Endometrios är en kronisk gynekologisk sjukdom med okänd etiologi som drabbar 10 % av kvinnor i fertil ålder och som har en djupgående påverkan på samtliga delar av kvinnors välmående. Dessa kvinnor blir ofta misstrodda och avfärdade av vårdpersonal när de söker vård för sjukdomen och deras smärtproblematik anses vara ”normal”. Feminism kan användas som ett verktyg för att undersöka denna företeelse. Syfte: Att beskriva hur kvinnor med endometrios upplever mötet med vårdpersonal. Metod: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys gjordes av sex stycken bloggar skrivna av kvinnor med endometrios för att ta del av deras upplevelser och erfarenheter. Resultat: Totalt återfanns tre teman; att bli experten, det dynamiska mötet och det statiska mötet. Under dessa återfanns totalt fem subteman som återger olika aspekter av mötet mellan kvinnorna och vårdpersonalen. Slutsats: Den omfattande misstro kvinnor med endometrios upplever inom vården kan förklaras av den underordnade position kvinnor har i samhället. En konsekvens av detta blir att dessa kvinnor möts i gemenskaper och formar ett systraskap. Klinisk betydelse: Sjuksköterskor kommer ofta i kontakt med dessa kvinnor oavsett klinisk placering. Genom ökad kunskap om sjukdomen såväl som strukturella faktorer skapas möjligheter för att hjälpa denna patientgrupp få den vård de har rätt till. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease with unknown aetiology which affects 10 % of fertile women and it has a profound effect on each part of women’s wellbeing. These women are often subjected to misbelief and dismission from healthcare personnel when they seek help for their pain related symptoms which are often considered “normal”. Feminism can be used as a tool to investigate these problematic issues. Aim: To investigate how women with endometriosis experience the encounter with healthcare personnel. Method: A qualitative content analysis based on six blogs was carried out with the intention to describe womens’ experiences. Result: A total of three themes were found; becoming the expert, the dynamic encounter and the static encounter. Related to these themes, a total of five subthemes were found that described different aspects of the encounter between the women and healthcare personnel. Conclusion: The widespread mistrust that women with endometriosis experience within the healthcare system can be explained by the subordinated position of women in society. This results in the gathering of women in communities as a type of sisterhood. Clinical implication: Nurses frequently come in contact with these women regardless of clinical placement. By improving their knowledge about the disease as well as structural factors, nurses are in position to help these patients receive the healthcare they are entitled to.
