District Nurses´ Experiences of Meeting People who are Seeking Asylum (English)
Abstract [sv]

Flyktingströmmen till Sverige har ökat markant de senaste åren vilket innebär att Sverige blivit ett mer heterogent samhälle detta påverkar såväl slutenvården som öppenvården. Asylsökande personer har ofta ett stort omvårdnadsbehov eftersom att de under sin flykt varit med om traumatiska händelser som påverkat dem. Att som distriktssköterska möta asylsökande personer kommer att bli vanligare och vanligare. Distriktssköterskan är ofta den som kommer i kontakt med asylsökande personer först, detta för att alla asylsökande personer har rätt till en kostnadsfri hälsoundersökning. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva distriktssköterskors erfarenheter av att möta personer som är asylsökande. För att få delta skulle deltagarna ha erfarenhet av mottagningsarbete/BVC-mottagning gentemot asylsökande personer. Datainsamlingen utfördes med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer, fem distriktssköterskor samt en sjuksköterska deltog. Intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Analysen resulterade i ett tema: Utmanande möten samt tre kategorier: Förhålla sig till kulturella skillnader; Komplexa möten som påverkar; Tolk som en förutsättning för att kommunicera. Distriktssköterskor beskrev att möten med asylsökande personer var både berikande och lärorikt det, var dock svårt att som ny på sin position veta vilket förhållningssätt de skulle använda sig av. Kulturell kompetens är av betydelse i dessa möten, något som distriktssköterskor i studien utvecklat genom många möten med asylsökande personer.

Flow of refugees to Sweden has increased significantly in recent years, which means that Sweden has become an increasingly diverse society that affect both inpatient and outpatient care. Asylum seekers are people that often have a large need for care because during their flight they experience traumatic events that have affected them. And as a district nurse meeting asylum seekers will become more and more common. District nurses are often the primary care that come into contact with asylum seekers first, this is partly due to all asylum seekers according a free health assessment. The purpose of this study was to describe districts nurses' experiences of meeting people who are seeking asylum. To participate, participants would have experience in reception/paediatric work towards asylum seekers. Data collection was performed using semi-structured interviews, whereof five district nurses and one nurse attended. The interviews were analyzed using content analysis. The analysis resulted in one theme: Challenging meetings and three categories: Relate to cultural differences; Complex meetings that affect; Interpreter as a condition for communicate. District nurses describe the meetings with asylum seekers was both enriching and instructive, however it was also difficult to initially know which approach is best when they were new on their positions. Cultural competence is important in these meetings, which district nurses in this study developed through numerous meetings with asylum seekers. Keywords: District nurses, experiences, primary care, asylum seekers, cultural competence.
