Abstract [sv]

Detta är en kvalitativ studie som har genomförts med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex manliga respondenter i åldern 23-45. Studiens syfte är att öka förståelsen för hur manliga undersköterskor upplever könsskillnader och psykosociala faktorer inom äldreomsorgen. En kvalitativ design valdes framför en kvantitativ då vi även hade intresse att undersöka vad män värdesätter i sin yrkesroll, hur män upplever sin minoritet som undersköterska och hur män upplever psykosociala faktorer som samvetsstress och psykosocial stress. Vårt studieresultat visar att männen skiljer sig från den kvinnligt kodade normen vad gäller yrkesutövning och psykosociala faktorer. Resultatet visar även att det behövs fler män inom vården och att ytterligare forskning kring manliga undersköterskor anses vara optimalt för att kunna öka rekryterings möjligheterna av manliga undersköterskor inom äldreomsorgen. Genom vår studie kunde vi finna stora brister i forskning kring psykosocial faktorer som behandlar män. Vi finner att ytterligare studier kring mäns psykosociala faktorer bör utövas genom observation då männen själva har svårt att identifiera sin egen psykosociala upplevelse.  

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study conducted by semistructured interviews with six male respondents in ages of 23-45. The aim of the study is to increase the understanding of how male nurses experience gender differences and psychosocial factors in elderly care. A qualitative design was chosen instead of a quantitative because we also had an interest in investigating what men value in their professional role as a nurse in elderly care, how they experience their minority as male nurses and how men experience psychosocial factors such as stress of conscience and psychosocial stress. Our study results shows that men are different from the female coded norm in terms of professional role and psychosocial factors. The results also shows that more men in the elderly care are needed, and further research on male nurses is considered optimally in order to increase the recruitment opportunities of male nurses in the elderly care. Through our study, we found major lack in psychosocial research that is dealing with men's psychosocial factors. We find that further studies on men's psychosocial factors should be performed through observation because the male in our study find it difficult to identify their own psychosocial experiences.
