Transcultural nursing of women with female genital mutilation in western healthcare (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Kvinnlig könsstympning är en sedvänja som utförs av traditionella, kulturella eller religiösa skäl. Ökad invandring till västvärlden har inneburit att vårdpersonal kommer att möta kvinnor som könsstympats och brist på kunskap och praktiska färdigheter hos vårdpersonal kan få konsekvenser för vårdandet. Syfte: Att belysa könsstympade kvinnors erfarenheter av kulturella påverkansfaktorer i omvårdnaden. Metod: Litteraturstudie med en deduktiv riktad innehållsanalys. Det utfördes en litteratursökning i vårdvetenskapliga databaser. Resultat: Resultatet från elva vetenskapliga artiklar placerades in i de förutbestämda kategorierna vilka var; Erfarenheter av religiösa och kulturella värderingar, Erfarenheter av kommunikation och språk, Erfarenheter av teknologi, Erfarenheter av utbildning, Erfarenheter av släktskap och sociala band och Erfarenheter av lagar och politik. Slutsats: Mötet mellan könsstympade kvinnor och den västerländska sjukvården präglas ofta av kommunikationssvårigheter och kulturella skillnader. Sjuksköterskors bristande kunskap om att vårda könsstympade kvinnor kan medföra att kvinnorna känner sig osäkra och oprofessionellt bemötta vilket kan orsaka onödigt lidande. Framtida forskning bör fokusera på hur dessa kvinnor vill bli vårdade vilket kan vara till nytta för alla verksamma sjuksköterskor.

Abstract [en]

Background: Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a custom that is performed for traditional, cultural or religious reasons. The increase of immigration to the western world has caused that nursing staff will meet and care for females that have undergone FGM. Lack of knowledge and practical skills amongst the hospital personnel treating the patients may lead to implications for the caring procedures. Purpose: To highlight genitally mutilated women’s experiences of cultural factors in nursing care. Method: A literature study with a directed content analysis. A literature research was performed in health scientific databases. Results: The findings from eleven scientific articles were placed in the predetermined categories which were: experiences of religious and cultural beliefs, experiences of language and communication, experiences of technology, experiences of education, experiences of kinship and social ties and experience of politics. Conclusion: The meeting between genitally mutilated women and western healthcare is often characterized by communication problems and cultural differences. Nurses’ lack of knowledge in caring for women with FGM causes the women to feel insecure, badly threated and may cause unnecessary suffering. Future research should focus on how these women wants to be cared for which can be of benefit to all active nurses.
