Transgender persons´ experiences of healthcare : a literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Transpersoner är en utsatt grupp med större risk för psykisk ohälsa, diskriminering, hot och våld än resterande befolkning, och har visats undvika och fördröja att söka vård trots behov. Stigmatisering och diskriminering från samhället i stort har även setts leda till att transpersoner fruktar att bli illa bemötta av vårdpersonal.

Syfte: Att belysa transpersoners upplevelser av bemötande inom hälso- och sjukvården.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt av elva vetenskapliga artiklar av kvalitativ och kvantitativ design samt mixad metod. Artiklarna analyserades efter transpersoners upplevelser av bemötande inom hälso- och sjukvården.

Resultat: Resultatet bestod av tre huvudteman: Att bli sedd och respekterad, Diskriminering på grund av sin könsidentitet och Kunskapsbrist om transpersoner och deras erfarenheter.

Diskussion: Diskussionen belyser hur transpersoner upplever bemötande av vårdpersonal och hur detta kan förstås utifrån Travelbees teori om mellanmänskliga relationer. Vidare diskuteras kunskapsbrist och dess påverkan på bemötandet kopplat till tidigare forskning samt en diskussion kring diskriminering och positiva vårdupplevelser.

 

Abstract [en]

Background: Transgender people are a vulnerable group with a higher risk of mental health issues, discrimination and a lower usage of healthcare services. Stigmatisation and discrimination from society at large have also been observed to lead to transgender people fearing to be treated badly by healthcare service personnel.

Aim: To illustrate transgender persons’ experiences of meeting with healthcare professionals.

Method: A literature review of eleven articles of qualitative, quantitative and mixed method design that dealt with transgender persons’ experiences in healthcare settings.

Results: The results are divided into three main themes; To be seen and respected,   Discriminations on the grounds of gender identity and A lack of knowledge about transgender persons and their experiences.

Discussion:The discussion illustrates how transgender persons experience meeting with healthcare professionals and how this can be understood from the view of Travelbees theory of human-to-human relationship. Further discussed is the lack of knowledge and it’s effects on the meeting in relation to past research as well as a discussion of discrimination and positive experiences of healthcare.
