Cultural encounters in palliative care : A literature review of nurses' experiences in meetings with migrant patients (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Palliativ vård syftar till att ge stöd och lindring till döende patienter för att främja livskvalitet oavsett vilken etnisk tillhörighet man har. Vi lever i ett mångkulturellt samhälle och idag möter sjuksköterskor allt fler invandrarpatienter som kan ha olika uppfattning om hälsa, sjukdom, döendet och döden. Detta innebär att det kommer att ställas andra eller nya krav på vårdpersonal.

Syfte: Denna uppsats syftar till att beskriva sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av att vårda invandrarpatienter vid palliativ vård.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt över elva vetenskapliga kvalitativa artiklar genomfördes. Artiklarna söktes i databaserna CINAHL Complete, pubMed och SveMed+. Sökord som användes var ”transcultural nursing”, ”multicultural”, ”palliative”, immigrants”, ”nurse”, ”experience”, “attitude”. Dessa kombinerades i olika konstellationer för att få fram sökträff som svarade på syftet.

Resultat: Resultat visar att många sjuksköterskor upplevde att det var svårt att bemöta invandrarpatienter. Kommunikationssvårigheter var ett vanligt problem vid kulturmöten. Att vara kulturellt medveten, och ha förståelse för kulturer och sedvänjor, samt visa hänsyn till individualitet var enligt sjuksköterskorna viktiga faktorer som kunde förbättra omvårdnad till invandrarpatienter.  

Diskussion: Resultatet diskuteras med Leiningers teori som utgångspunkt, hennes teori kan vara till stöd för att bistå invandrarpatienternas kulturella behov. Vidare diskuterades vilken kulturell kompetens som behövs för att sjuksköterskan ska kunna ge en god omvårdnad inom palliativ vård.

Abstract [en]

Background: he aim of palliative care is to provide support and relief to dying patients in order to indorse the quality of life regardless of their ethnical background. We are living a multicultural society and nurses today meet immigrant patients who may hold different understanding about health, illness, dying and death. This means that it will impose different or new requirement for health professionals.

Aim:The aim of this study is to describe nurses' experiences of caring for migrant patients in palliative care.

Method: The method that was used is a literature review. Eleven qualitative articles were included in this study. Articles were searched in the databases CINAHL Complete, PubMed and SveMed +. Selected keywords were ”transcultural nursing”, ”multicultural”, ”palliative”, immigrants”, ”nurse”, ”experience”, “attitude”.These were combined in different configurations to retrieve a search result that responded to the purpose.

Results: The result shows that many nurses felt difficulties to approach immigrant patients. Communication difficulties were the common problem in cultural encounters. To being culturally aware, to understand the cultures and customs, and to take the individuality was as nurses important factors that could improve the care of migrant patients.

Discussions: The discussion is based on Leininger's theory and how her theory can be of support to assist immigrant patients' cultural needs. Further discussed about which cultural competence is needed for the nurse to be able to provide good transcultural nursing.
